Season That Is JVever Agreeable to
Ilnsiiioss Men.
NKW STORK, June 15.— R. C. Dun &
Co.'s weekly review of trade pays:
"A season of declining prices is never
wholly agreeable to business men whoso i
.stocks .in hand are losing part of their
value. Vet there are times when return
to the highest prosperity in business is
not possible except through readjustment
of prices, The highest prosperity the
country lta.s ever reached prior to the
panic was in ls,c, with prices averaging
not quite 7. r. per cent of their average in
1800. Alter meat depression for several
years the highest point reached with last
year's recovery was 80 per cent on March
16, but the gradual yielding has already
returned the regular prices to a shade
less than 7.) tier cent, where it was prac
tically with the highest prosperity in 1892.
'•The output of iron furnaces June L
wa.s 296,376 tons weekly, an increase of
8.526 ions, making the yield only 1,fi38 tons
less than at the highest point ever reach
ed Feb. l. But the increase of unsold '
stock to :p, iM) tons, about »4,000 tons in I
May, disclosed a larger decline than was
expected in the new business upon which
nearly all the works and furnaces have
now to rely, and reports that furnaces
(»C considerable capacity have already
been closed this month seems likely to
be correct Within a week or two the
labor organizations and the envjlovers
will be discussing new demands for high
er wages and shorter houis. and the dos
ing of many works for lack of orders
will have much influence about this time
Prices aregradually changing, anthracite
No. 1 to $20 and Pittsburg grey forge to
JU.aO, and sales of bars are reported there

At tli ■ beginning o£ trie sess'on and for

of rains for Minnesota and the two Ba

very shoit inning, however. The bu.ls
turned to their gr at friend and through

would get half a crop; others that any

There was a talk of n bis: July line held

members of the New York Stock ex
change and Chicago Board of Trade.
Modern Miller says: "The condition of
the wheat In winter wheat belt is much
the same as a week ago. The plant has
made reasonable progress. Harvesting
has begun as far North as Kansas and
Southern Illinois and Missouri, and the
crop is being gathered under quite, fa
vorable conditions, although too much
rain is noted In some localities The
flour trade has not been benefited by
the late advance in wheat, as buyers
both at home and abroad steadfastly re
fuse to pay the prices warranted by the
present cost of wheat." Aberdeen. S.
D.: Light showers this morning. Dam
age to crop reported from stations be

per cent." Jamestown: "Partly cloudy

NEW YORK, June 15.-To flnd a paral
lel for tj|e stagnation in today's stock
market it would be necessary to go back
to ihe presidential campaign. A number
of usually active storks were not dealt
in to the extent of a .single share and it
was long after noon before such a specu
lative leader as Brooklyn Rapid Transit
or Manhattan made its appearance on
the tape ar all. There was some desul
tory speculation in Sugar during- the
morning at an advance o f abut a point
but that stock fell ba»>k into the rut of

South St. Paul, June 15.
CATTLE—Receipts tor the laat two
days have been fight and the market has
been quiet. During the first of the week
the daily runs were largo and the market
fairly active. Fat cattle, of good qua.ity
are- In good deniKii.V ■at fully steady
prices. The supply Is not enough £or th.:
local packers. Veals,' fat and bologna
bulls and thin rows and cahaers are sell-
Ing readily at unchanged prices, in the
stock cattle division good quality stuff, of
all weights has been fairly easy to move
at prices steady at the d< ;line, but the
common and lail-end .--tuff is almost im
movable. A few small bunches have been
sold at very low prices, but the-yards are
still well sprinkled with stuff that sales
men have been unable to get a bid on.

dullness which characterized the whole
Large offerings oftidigJlthern Pacific be
gan to appear near 2 o'clock, at which
time the directors-were assembling to
take action 011 the semi-annual division.
The stock fell intcTiQ&ffci-ude in the last
hour, and hung abuuL a point below last
night's leVel. It was not until after the
close of the market that the- announce
ment was made ti](at only a 1 per cent
dividend ' had been aectared for t!ie""~stx
hobonths' period. The proposed action of
the directors seems to have been Xei»l a
close secret, so that no estimate can be
formed of the offaL-t of this action on
the stock market. ;,At; .the last dividend.
period the directors declared 2 per cent
on the common stock, 1 per cent of which
was called regular semi-annual and 1
per cent extra. Scver?il weeks hso the
stock was rushed up aTJ.ove HO by a spec
qlative pool on th'e%Jlegation that a reg
ular semi-annual divid^jid of 2 per cent
would be declared" 'fpr the last six
months. More recently ruraprs have been
abroad that the dlrectofa would hesitate
to put the stock on a ivmilaY 4 !"■■!■ Getit
basis, but it has beta, eteneTAfty accepted
in sijieculative ciri'les' that the last divi
dend action wouM'WJ'repfatSfl, th;it is to
say a 2 per cent divineiid declared, but
1 per cent to be called extra. No inti
mation has been heard in Wall street that
the actual amount to be disbursed would
be cut in half.
The action taken proved a complete
surprise, and what the effect may be
upon the general market it is impossible
to foresee. It is a clear announcement of
the formulated judgment of the directors
heretofore informally announced by of
p.cialg of the company that the current
high level of earnings cannot be main
tained. It will be accepted also -as•'cmi*
innation of the reports of extensive dam
age to the Northwestern wheat crop.
The price movement in today's market
was irregular and without significance.
Not much attention was paid to the fore
cast of tomorrow's bank statement, but
it is estimated that a loss of cash by the
banks will be disclosed owing to the
83,500,000 export of gold, which seems to
have been only partly offset by the re
ceipt of cash from the interior. New
York exchar^j at Chicago, however, has
moved upwards during the week, and to
day touched 20c premium, showing Ihe
movement of currency still strongly
toward Chicago. According to the state
ments from the leading banks the net
loss In cash will probably be upwards of
a million.
The bond market shared fully In the
dullness of the stock market and price
changes were insignificant. Total sales
par value, $800,000. I'nited States bonds
were unchanged in bid quotations.
