stock market was less active and lower in
the forenoon to-day, but rallied and was
etrong throughout the remainder of the day,
and marked advances were scored in most of
the active list. London Bent buying orders
at the opening, but they were soon filled and
ft sharp drive was made at Lackawanna on
:.-..■- • ' -.-:«-'
the reduction of tolls In the I Lehigh 'valley,
and the strike on the Michigan Central was
made the means of depressing the general
list. The resistance to the decline was too
great, however, and the shorts began to
cover, and the foreigners took large blocks of
stocks, which completely turned the drift of
the market, and no further reaction was had
during the rest of the day, while
among the specialties very sharp. . ad
vances were established. The buying of
the grangers and Gould iticks was particu
larly good and the foreign purchases of
Reading, St. Paul, Union Pacific and Louis
ville & Nashville were very, marked. The
advance was helped by rumors that the Van
derbilts were behind their stocks and that
the senate would lake speady action on. the
bond purchase bill, but the best support was
from the covering of shorts. Late in the day
Jersey Central, Burlington & Quincy and
some of tne Southern stocks attracted special
attention, Richmond & West Point preferred
and Norfolk & Western preferred being very
conspicuous for the strength displayed. The
demand for stocks in the loan crowd con
tinued unabated, though rates were still un
changed. The feeling' at the opening was
much better, and first prices showed ad- .
vances of from % to 1 per cent, the latter in
Canada Southern, but the raid on Lacka
wanna brought that stock down 1% per cent
and the rest of the list- fractional amounts. ;
The decline met with a check, however,
toward noon, and after that time there was
renewed buying for the long account and
prices slowly advanced, the losses of the
morning hours being regained about de
livery hour. After that time, however, the
market developed marked strength, .and .
while there was no increase in the amount
of business done, the gains were more im- ;
portant than at any previous V time.
The close was quiet but strong at
the best prices of the day in the majority of
cases. The active list almost without excep
tion is higher this evening, and Richmond

BUTTER, EGOS AND CHEESE.
POTATOES WANTED,
Produce Exchange.
Stocks of apples are probably sufficiently
abundant to last out the season, and prices
are very firm. There is no change in butter.
The demand is good for all grades, but
stronger and more active for roll and print
than for creameries. Though ■- fine cream
eries are comparatively a little slow of sale,
they do not drag. It is simply a case of first
choice for grades of butter that are a little
cheaper and very nearly as good as the best.
The strawberries that come to this point will
find a market soon, - providing the weather
comes off warm. Cheese steady. Eggs have
advanced, but cannot - stay " there long.
Poultry uncnanged.

Sample tables were again well filled on the
local board, and a fair buying inquiry kept
sellers busy ' showing bargains. Receipts
were 400 cars, with 53 shipped. Sellers, were
offering wheat to arrive without attracting
bids. Local millers were doing the most buy
ing, but outsiders had in quite a few orders.
Duluth reported 25 cars ou track. Prices for
samples ranged about tec btlow the prices
of the day before, with demand apparently
satisfied before the close of the session.

Flour— demand is steady and takes
out the production as fast as it is made ready
to move. Millers have no stocks on hand.
They are sending it forward to go into con
sumption. During January there was an ac
cumulation ot about 50.000 barrels, but the
demand has taken it away with the excep
tion of a few thousand barrels that are
sold and waiting for cars to load— about
a day's run. Prices are low and buy
