THE ST. PAUL GLOBE, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1&02.
STOCKS, BONDS
* AND MONEY.
J\EW YORK, Feb. 24.—The stock mar
ket today sank back into the professional
traders' hands and there was no impor
tant movement, except in a few stocks
of smaller railroads not allied to any of
the great systems and in some minor in
dustrials. The declines established for
American stocks in London since the
close here on Friday afternoon had to toe
faced at the opening. This caused a
lower level at hrst than on last Friday,
but prices were at no time down to the
London parity and they soon began to re
cover, in spite of the selling on arbitrage
on London account at the advance.
Confidence that the supreme court would
refuse jurisdiction in Minnesota's suit
against the Northern Securities company,
which has been nrmly held in Wall street
for three weeks, was unimpaired this
.morning and the traders did some of their
buying on that basis. The announcement
of the decision by the court failed to at
tract any outside demand and the efforts
of the traders to take their profits caus
ed a reaction in the market and an easy
closing 1.
The decision of the administration to
push' the case against the Northern Se
curities company deprived the other suit
of much of its importance, tout the fact
remains that one possible course of pro
cedure against the company is closed
by this decision, and a step thus achieved
towards the establishment of the com
lany's status. It is generally felt that
all possible courses of procedure will
have to be met in the same way. The
professionals who were on the bull side
today exchanged assurances that the ad
ministration's suit against the company
might be regarded as in the nature of a
inendly process to establish the true
standing of that company under the law,
and the visit to Washington cf some of
the principal financiers interested was re
garded as a favoring factor for the out
come of the case.
This sort of argument was not so con
vincing but that the professional traders
kept keenly alert to each other's move
ments, and when important selling to
realize developed, all turned to the sell
ing side. The largest dealings were in
stocks which moved under individual in
fluences.
_In sugar the influence was disappointed
over, the measure agreed upon by the
ways and means committee from the duty
on Cuban sugar.
Amalgamated Copper was affected by
the reported sale to it of a mine and the
removal of threatened litigation.
Colorado & Southern was heavily
bought with an advance of over a point
on reports of a transfer of a control. An
upward movement of a number of lower
priced minor railroad stocks had no other
apparent cause than sympathy with this
movement in Colorado & Southern.
Tennessee Coal was a feature at an
extreme advance of 314 c on rumors of a
resumption of dividends. Dealings in
Southern Pacific continued large, tout the
movement in the stock was small.
Foreign exchange continued to advance
today, influenced by London's selling of
securities here and the small supply of
commercial exchange bills, but the local
money market continued easy. Chica
go, Indianapolis & Louisville' advanced
3%, but declined nearly 5.
The bond market showed some degree
of firmness, but business was not large
except in the Wabash debenture Bs. To
tal sales, par value, $3,490,000.
United States 3s coupon declined %, and
the registered advanced % per cent on
the last call.

LONDON, Feb. 24.-Stocks were quite
steady today, pending the settlement,
save in the case of South African shares,
which opened firm, and then steadily
sagged. The public is;>out of the market
and insiders are holding off, thinking
that the weak element "has not yet been
shaken out. The American department
opened weak, dreading New. York's open
ing after the holiday, but the bull faction
rallied prices when New York came as a
buyer, particularly of Union Pacific and
Baltimore & Ohio. The close was cheer
ful. Gold to the amount, of £22,000 has
been received from Australia. Satur- ■
day's South African arrival has been
taken for Paris. Ttre price is 77s lVid.
The Bank of. England has fixed the buy
ing price of German coin at 76s %d
Paris exchange is 25.16. '
Berlin— fund* on the bcersa tojav
were at first in strong demand, but this
was not maintained, ; owing : to -realiza
tions. Spanish 4s made a further recov- 1
cry. Canadian Pacifies were easier on
London advices. Mines were irregular,
the unsatisfactory monthly return of the J
Gelsenkirchen company.- causing disap
pointment. - Banks were easier. The waak
ness of Americans in London depressed
the whole market. • '■'■
London—The supplies of monsy were
increased today through government dis
bursements, but tenders for £3,000,000 In
twelve month treasury bills (the applica
tions amounting to /£7,859,C03), increases
the demand. Discounts were firm. The
Bank of England advanced the: buying
price of German gold £oin-to 76s- 4%d
Business on the Stock exchange opened
undecided and was. largely devoted to
the mining carry-over. Consols were fair
ly steady. Home rails were dull. Amer
icans were flat and featureless, pending
the receipt of the New York - opening
prices, when they improved: and closed
firmer. Spanish 4s and Rio Tintos hard
ened. Copper closed- steady at 55% Kaf
firs opened quiet, but later were unset
tled and weak. ;

I MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 24.—Wheat took a
sharp down turn to start the week. May
-old off to- -?3%c. - Pressure was on tne
market from every, side, the regular
weekly statistics -were against the price,
the preponderance "of the winter wheat
news was bearish, and the general feel
ing.was one of discouragement. Although
it was expected that the tone on Monuay
would be bearish, and to some extent
-this was- discounted in the selling;which
forced the decline on Friday, there we're
a good many holders who decided to re
main long over the double holiday.
Against their, holdings stop-loss orders
were placed, and this brought a flood ot
offerings at the opening. Chicago led the
weakness. Much interest was attached
to winter wheat reports,- as the recent
warm weather has taken off the snow
covering over wide areas. CrawtoiiLs
ville, Ind., was the only point reporting
unfavorably, and this-was lost in the
mass of favorable reports. Omaha wired
that the wheat comes out from under the
snow looking very promising; that a
rough es.imate makes the acreage 25 pel
cent larger than last year; that farmer 3
are talking of planting considerable
spring wheat, and that everything at this
time points to a big crop. ; Damaare may
come to winter wheat, but the trade does
not expect it for some t me. There is
enough moisture, according to all reports
to carry the crop safely through a dry
spell. . ::., ...... .
In the local market there were 746 cars
compared with 4!>3 last year. The North
west had hi all 936 cars, aga'.nst 524. : It is
hard to see much encouragement for the
bulls at this writing. There are no doubt
a good many short lines out, and on any
strengthening news the buying in may
carry the prica up sharply. Then there
is the increased possibilities of export
business at the lower level. Sentiment,
however, has turned weaker- than for
some time, and while it may be a mistake
to place too much confidence in the win
ter wheat at this early date, yet the idea
is slowly taking- root that we are to have
a big crop in the Southwest, and- with
this notion growing and the probability
of increased receipts everywhere it is
questionable whether enough buying sup-

After noon there was a little effort at a
rally in wheat, but corn was persistently
weak and declining. Chicago made a final
through 76c, and sold t» 75V,,e, Min
neapolis May going to 72% c. At the close
Minneapolis May was 72%@72%c; July,

it was a satisfactory cash market con

range of 69»/ c to 71% c, and other grades

CHICAGO 'CHAHGE.
1 . CHICAGO. Feb. 24.—Grain prices stum
bled at the opening of the board today.
j Then the bears gave them a vigorous j
push, and everything went down hill
! and struck low level. The warm weath- !
\ cr and prospects for plenty-; of grains i
; was the cause of the slump. May wheat
: elo£i&d with a net loss of l%c.- May corn
; l%c and May oats ls4c Provisons" lost
! 2%@17%c. • • ■■ ■-.-..
Everything in wheat was bearish from
the start. Cables were lower, receipts
! were improved and the weather e-ave
i promise of sunshine for some time to
i come. Crops were reported in excellent
[ condition," and the farmer began to sell
lin a hurry. Estimates of grain receipts I
j for tomorrow were treble what they were
! today. On passage stuff increased 24S
r'^,'1^ and the world's shipments were
1 b,6b1,(K)0 bu, compared , with 6.111000 bu
; last week and only 5.936,000 bu yester- i
j day. As a result the scenes on 'change
1 were mostly excited scrambles to unload
1 bnoris sales also were considerable The i
■foreign demand was still light, and the
i demand from stock feeders was becom
ing much lighter because of good weath- '

, breaks steadied things for a while, and i

strengthened a bit. Just before The

: wheat was too plentiful swept over the !

; Corn again had to contend against de- I
pressing influences. Those consisted
meetly of increased offerings of com
from Western feeders. At the openiTi" !
f! S, Were lower " tne Southwestern
markets were very weak and fair weath- '
er was universal in the country most !
needing it. Receivers all reported lib- '
era! acceptances from the country of i
tfiicago bids— : many cases at decrcas- !
es. - Much, stuff was for sale early on j
neages. May started %@%c, down-, at '
(n>V.;ve. In company, with wheat 'and
hardly paused in , its downward course '
until it had struck 63y B c@s9i4c. Th'» i
weakening of the holding sentiment on I
the part: t»f the farmers was reflected I
1? -^ \? lt Wlth a hisher intensity, and i
liquidation of; speculative holding" went !
at an enormous rate. Nearly every house
on. the \ floor took I part • m the selling,
which was for both local and country '
account. The offerings were heaviest i
onl the ! houses that were recently on '
the bull side.: Covering at times brought i
good; profits, but made no i apparent ef- ■
feet on prices. 5 May closed very weak, !

Oats had a sympathetic market, and i
slumped in company with corn. No new*
