Stocks-^Speculation at the Stock Exchange
was characterized by strength and buyers ex
hibited more confidence than for some time past.
The advance in prices was almost uninterrupted
from opening until close and extended from 3"4'
pj 'i'± per cent. Tho reactions at intervals were
only fractional and served to bring in fresh buy
ing orders. The features of the market were
Delaware, Lackawnnna & Western, Chicago,
Bock Island & Pacific, Chicago & Northwestern,
Chicago, Milwaukeo & St. Paul, Lake Shore,
New York Central and Pacific Mail. The ad
yanco in Grangers, New York Central and Lake
Shoro was due to Vandorbilt purchases on an
amicable adjustment of Trunk line matters.
Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific moved up on
talk of a contest for tho presidency. Pacific
Mail was in brisk demand on talk of a dividend
in April next and on announcement that the sen
ate commerce committee at Washington had
unanimously reported a bill in favor of giving
mail pay to all American steamships sailing to
foreign ports. In the afternoon Wabash, St.
Louis & Pacific preferred ran »ff to 23 and
Northern Pacific preferred to 4G,Vs, but tho de
cline was otherwise slight. In the final t'u>is
actions a fresh buying movement set in and
many shares advanced to tho highest point of
tho week. Speculation left off strong and on
the advance. As compared with last night's
closing prices are J*j££2^ cent, higher ox
cept for Northern Pacifies, which sire %@}£ per
cent, lower. Western Union Telegraph, it is
said, never before did a bigger business at this
season of the year. In addition to its own nat
ural increase, it is understood that owing to fogs
and floods, it is handling a great part of the
business of other companies.
The Mail and Express says: The indications
are that prices will continue to move upward for
some time, the stocks which have advanced be
ing the best on Iho list. The strength of tho
movement hRB been in a great iroasuro in the
excellence of the stocks selected «s leaders.
Lake Shoro at 94, Delaware, Lackawrtnun &
Western at 117, Chicago & Northwestern at 115,
Chicngo, Milwaukee & St. Paul at SO, Missouri
Pacific at 86, Western Union Telegraph at 78
and Union Pacific at 70 had merit. These are
the stocks which the loaders of the advance hava
bought under conditions which will keep them
from coming on the market for a considerable
time. These stocks have been taken out of the
street to an extent not before known for years.
The market is bare of good stocks, and while
prices aro high enough to make these stocks look
dear, capitalists who have bought them will have
no inducement to sell. The rise in these stocks
has been accompanied by a strong advance in
bonds. Gilt edged aud speculative issues alike
have gone up. There is a large demand for
bonds yot unsatisfied.
' Commercial Advertiser: The week closes with
the bulls far in tho ascendancy with a tenacious
and unrelenting grip, and with a determination
to hang on to what thoy have got and to lose
nothing. The constant desires of the field mar- '
shals of tha street to be interviewed and t their
pronounced and unreserved prediction's for
higher prices, their Bucce=B in capsizing all im
. pediments likely to thwart tceir purposes, af
ford most convincing proof of unswerving
fidelity with which they have adhered to their
policy formulated a month ago. The tales of
stocks for the week were 2,836,557 shares, a de
crease of 557,726 as compared with the previous

from the blue Mediterranean brings a drove of
stalwart Italians who look as though they would
not object to being introduced to a loaf of
brown bread and a flitch of American'bacon.
