SIGNS OF MANIPULATION Report of Action by Claus Spreckels Against the Sugar Company. Great Irregularity distinguished the New York stock market yesterday. There was a rapid bidding up of prices during the first half-hour, followed by further Irregular advances; then a setback at midday, on what looked like distributive selling' by banking Inter ests who had supported prices much lower down. New "leaders" appeared, Great Northern being one of these. The anthracite group particularly Dela ware, Lackawanna and Western and Delaware' and Hudson scored further gains. The metal stocks were nlso firm. But Northern Pacific was reac tionary, because of expected postpone ment of the meeting to act on the quarterly dividend, which was set for yesterday. , ' Northern Pacific has become one of the most active of the trading stocks, a condition that has not existed since before the panic and corner of May, 1901. Among its forenoon buyers were J. M. Noyes, G. C. Holllster. E. C. Potter & Co. (1,000). Upper & Co. (2,- sums required to operate them, there were some very striking advances. Stocks of t'lis class suffered most se verely in the ruthless liquidation of the last few months. Usually they are sup ported by buying orders in sufficient volume to absorb all offerings in ordi nary times and thus protect their se curity as collateral in loans. When panic ruled In New York, however, all such customary safeguards wera swept away many points at a time on mar keting of small supplies. Now that the strain of such selling is past it is found possible to mark the prices up wards by successive bids with, great facility as very small accounts are brought out for sale by the advance. The evidence of selling to take profits when any sustaining influence in the market offered favorable opportunity created some suspicion of the rise In prices which has occurred and of the reports whicn have been put in circu lation to account for them. Professions were still made to-day with great earnestness and appearance of entire confidence that a large ex tra dividend on Northern Pacific had been determined upon, although it was admitted that a meeting intended to act on the matter had been postponed. No official information could be se cured either on the Intended meeting or the alleged postponement and the subject was thus kept within the realm of speculative chances. The stock was quite steadily sold all day with ulti mate decisive effect on the tone of the whole market.1 Evidences of the rapid improvement in the money situa tion continued to manifest themselves but they were not so stimulating to the speculation as they were yesterday. The speculative realizing proved the dominant factor in the day's market and the Btocks that were most active showed a majority of declines at the end of the day. Rumors of an intended Knn on1 Wgldin Wnllln A Co. while the 'sellers Included Harris wlnthrop &; application for a receiver for one of Co.. E. Stevens. Frost & Co.. J. M, Amory & Son Flagg (1,000).

This was one of the com panies which last November postponed Its dividend for an indefinite time. The last previous dividend was' 2 per cent., la December, 1906.

It sold off on a report hat a receiver ship was pending there, but there was no development in this line, and the rumor was generally discredited. Oth er weak stocks were Missouri Pacific find Atchison. Cotton Oil was active and strong in the last hour. When United States Steel preferred touched 90 Just at noon it aroused much favorable comment. The Steel hares have lately been steadily work ing higher, although not active feat ures of the trading. Among the buy ers of Steel common were Lounsbery & Co. (5,000), K. Meyer, Jr. (2,500), J. M. Noyes, O. B. Bridgman, E. C. Hubert and J. J. Manning, while Mar tihall Spader & Co. sold 5,000. The market had many appearances of manipulation, for which reason traders were Inclined to take the short nlde in leading issues which had hud the sharpest rise. The bidding un of the high-priced coalers Is a very old Idea. It often means that other stocks are being distributed under cover 'of their advance. Anyway, it is an old aw that when the coalers rise sharp ly the general rnHrket has culminated. The anthracite coalers all appeared to be on thel move. Not only did Reading again cross par, but Dela ware, Ijickawanna and Western rose to 478 1-2, a gain of 28 1-2 points on top of its rise Monday of 42 1-2 points. Delaware and Hudson advanced to 166, 7 1-2 points up, and Jersey Cen tral to 175, 4 points up, Ontario and Western was fractionally higher. The report :hat Claus A.

Mr. Kpreckel's discov ery that the chief officers and directors Of the company have only compara tively slim amiunt of the stotk stand ing in their names is not a unique disclosure, so far as industrial corpor ation's are concerned. Wall street re members well the small amount of International Paper that former Gov. Roswell : Flower had at the time of his death. The annual meeting of the Sugar company takes place to-morrow. Foreign transactions in this market yesterday were small, probably not more than lO.oofl shares, mostly sales. These represented profit-taking by traders who thought .-the market was due to have a setback, after the sharp rise it has had.
