SOUTH ST. PAUL, Feb. 27.-The receipts
at the tnion stockyards today were: Cat
tle, 50; calves, 50; hogs, 125; sheep. 2,000.
The receipts were very light, and, with the
exception of the hogs, most of the stuff sold
-*as from the pens. Quotations on butcher
cattle with last week. Only a few of the
stockers and feeders were better than medi
um in quality. Good stuff is in demand and
sells high. Common stuff drags and sells
low. There were not enough hogs in to
make a market. The sales made averaged a
shade lower than Saturday. The quality was
fair. A few small bunches of sheep were
sold at steady prices. The sheep in were
consigned to feeders.

NEW YORK, Feb. 27.— The stock market
continued very Irregular today, and left off
rather heavy, but with fractional advances
ln the prominent shares. The railway shares
secure more prominence in the dealings than
of late, important fluctuations occurring from
time to time in those properties, during which
the specialties were temporarily relegated to
the background. Prices were receding when,
towards noon, it was reported that Aguinaldo
was Inclined to accept pacific overtures, and
a rally ensued. London was a moderate
purchaner. Covering movement in Sugar
advanced the price smartly, but free sell
ing appeared which attracted particular at
tention as it was by brokers who were be
lieved to represent nouses prominent on the
bull elde in other stocks, and the stock lost
its early gain -and closed but fractionally up
for the day. Third Avenue dropped 22 points
after an initial rise of four, the weakness
seemingly on realizing, when it was reported
that the property would be absorbed by Met
ropolitan. American Steel and Wire advanced
on large dealings, but subsequently lost part
of the rise. Federal Steel to a lesser extent
sympathized with both movements ln Amer
ican Steal and Wire.
Atchison was weak during the eariy reces
sion of the market, but stiffened on the re
port that a further dividend on the preferred
would be considered at the directors' meet
ing in March. Subsequently the stock was
sold down In common with the drive at the
rest of the market. American District Tele
graph made a gain of 7 points on a report
that the control of the company had . been
secured with a view of using its subway
privileges for a new telephone company.
The grangers were In request ln tha af
ternoon, St. Paul showing a quarter of a
-ffiilllo<n net Increase in January. The grang
ers, however, together with the specialties,
sagged during the late selling movement.
The Philadelphia compamy rose over 3 point*
on the heavy oversubscription for their bonds
offered this morning. Ontario aud Western's
strength was attributed to the reports^ that
tihe Vanderbilt interests had taken much of
the stock. It was said that the pool which
had advanced the stock sold 25.000 shares
ln the early dealings. Some hardening in
call money rates accompanied the late selling
The bond market displayed a hesitating tone
throughout, some Issues forging upward,
while others felt the effects of realization.
Texas and Pacific seconds moved up to 64 on
rumors that an early dividend payment was
possible. Total safles, $4,590,000. U. S.^new 4s
registered advanced %c and the 3s ana 5s %c
in the bid price.

gossip, reported by H. Holbert & _on, bank
ers and brokers, -811 Robert street, National
German-American bank building, St. Paul:
•'The stock market In general has been rather
featureless, but certain of our leading shares
have shown a great undertone, and have de
veloped much firmness on g-od, moderate buy
ing. Most prominent we may allude to, "Q,"
in which property the public are beginning
to realize the wisdom of making haste slowly
and to appreciate the policy adapted of re
funding by degrees, is not merely an appar
ent dividend of some six points, but some
thing much more .comprehensive and far
reaching. The buying has been excellent.
Atohison preferred, as" well as "Q,*' is being
steadily aDsorbed, and nvill go much higher. In
both of these shocks . the steady buying of
Standard Oil people has had and will con
tinue to have a marked influence. The lower
grade of railroads, while steady, are without
feature. Among the industrials, Steel Wire
has taken a further advance, and has carried
with lt Federal Steel shares. It Is stated, and
on most excellent authority, that the orders
already booked by the Steel Wire will pay at
the rate of 8 per cent on the common stock.
We feel that Biscuit earnings will soon call
forth buying of that property, and we look
for a steady Improvement in the quotation.
The same comment will also apply to Conti
nental Tobacco."

LONDON MONEY— London, Feb. 27.— The
market for American securities, after a dull
and rather weak opening, was firmer, but in
active. Trading was merely professional. The
closing tone was barely steady and the de
mand generally light. Spanish 4s closed at 54.
The Commercial Advertiser's London finan
cial cablegram says: "The markets here
were very quiet and dullish today. Americans
began weak. London bought eagerly for an
hour and New York sold later. The close
was near the worst, except Ontario & West
ern, which was in demand all day. Coppers
were heavy. Tlntos were 49%; Anacondas,
9 1-16; Utahs, 8%; Bostons, 2 9-16. Money
was ln good demand for repayments to the
bank. The bank Is buying gold at 77s 9%d.
Germany Is also nibbling.

NEW YORK COTTON— New York, Feb. 27.
—The cotton market opened with something
of a bull flourish, the official tone being
uteady, while initial sales were at an advance
of 5 to S points. The better feeling resu'ted
from a general bull turn of affairs oyer Sun
day, this being particularly due to weather
conditions ln the South and the temper of
the Liverpool market. Private reports stated
Manchester spinners had abandoned their ar
bitrary tattles and were bidding freely for
large amounts of spot cotton. Sales of "cloth
and yarn were very heavy; many spinners
were .old ahead up to the middle of April,
with not a few inadequately supplied with
raw material. Futures closed steady; Febru
ary, 6.28 c; March, 6.30 c; April, 6.27 c; May
6.28 c; June, 6.25 c; July, 6.26 c; August, 6.27 c;
September and October. 6.11 c; November, 6.0 c;
December, 6.11 c; January, 6.11 c.
27.— The demand for all descriptions of cottons
is well maintained, but scarcity of immediate
supplies checks volume of business. The
tone continues strong throughout. Few ad
vances reported today, but the tendency of
prices is still distinctly against buyers. Brown
cottons scarce and advancing. Bleached also
tending upwards. Wide sheetings firmer.
Denims and ticks firm, with moderate re
quests, as are other coarse colored cottons.
Staple dress goods firm.
NEW YORK COFFEE— New York, Feb. 27.
— Coffee options opened steady at unchanged
prices, ruled quiet with fluctuations narrow
and radical, new features lacking; unfavor

Rio and Santos, large warehouse deliveries
and a favorahle turn to statistical situation

—The week opens with the situation in met-ils
destitute of special new feature or radical
change in quotation. The news reaching the
market abroad and from primary points
averaged up pretty much as expected while
demand was not urgent in any department.
