THE MORNING spURNAL-COURIER, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1908. Poor Richard Said: "Tis better to spare and have than to spend and crave. " 4 per cent. Interest paid on your savings here 1 THE STOCK MARKET Quiet Trading Marks the First Day After the Holiday. SOME TRANSACTIONS MADE United States Steel Preferred Makes a Drop or Over a Point. The local stock market was firm, but very quiet during the first half of the day. Gains of 1 to 2 points were scored by a number of stocks, then there was a recession at midday. The strongest stocks during the morning were Union Pacific, Heading, North ern Pacific, and the metal group. Early In the afternoon business almost came to a standstill, showing at the timjs absence of selling pressure on the decline. tus Hcinze, or one of his former co workers, was selling out stock that could no longer be carried, or that the stock offered was the collateral for a matured loan which Jiad not been met. This was neither affirmed nor de nied by those who conducted the sale. Mr. Heinze,' until October, was presi dent of the Mercantile bank and a director of the Utah institution. The sale realized $54,000, the Mer cantile bank stock bringing $114 a share, the Utatj National $63 and the Italian American Trust $fts. A month ago some Mercantile bank stoVk sold for $12:! 1-2. Trading in stocks was very quiet in the last h'tur, with general recessions, but with net results for the day not much changed compared with Fri day's closing figures. The decision handed down by the United States su preme court yesterday holding the Great Northern guilty of rebates prob ably had something to do with the late heaviness. All of the grangers re-acted. United States Steel pf. was notably heavy in the third hour, selling down to 91 1-4, a net loss of 1 1-8. The re mainder of the list reacted 1-4 to 1. Transactions to 1 o'clock were Ilo, 835 Shares. Foreign houses sold more than 20, 000 shares on balance. A good part of this was for continental account, especially in metal shares. The la bor outlook in England is very un satisfactory, and industrial condi tions are becoming worse. Capital is not going Into1 new enterprises, but is accumulating as here. Consequently a 3 per cent, bank rate is looked for In April. The temporary firmness of Union Pacific both yesterday and late last week was probably knowledge of the fact that the dividend of 2 1-2 per cent, comes off to-morrow, and to the eye of tho average trader It will look relatively cheap. As a rule, the . shorts do not like to remRin out after a dividend comes off. It is probable ' that many of them covered up yester day morning. There was no other news on which to base the early strength. The large shorts have been good buy ers recently and are said to have taken up one-third of their commitments. Still It Is estimated that the uncovered commitments will reach 1,000,000 shares. . The Harriman stocks were, of course, helped by Mr. Fish's abandonment of tho contest with Mr. Harriman, C. I). Barney & Co. were heavy buyers of Union Pacific, causing the rally after the opening. Ilooley, Learnard & Smith, T; I Ma son Co. and I. Spiegetberg & Co. bought Amalgamated Copper up to r0. Oelrichs & Co., I. & 8. Wormser & Co. and Raymond, Pynchon & Co. bought k Steel common. Content & Co. mid 'Marshall, Spader & Co. sold Smelters. Thayer Brothers and J. S. Bache & Co. , bought Brooklyn Rapid Transit. C. P. Wychoff, Hastend & Hodges, Hooper & Co. and E. 'Meyer, jr., bid up Reading. E. F. Hutton & Co. were thought to be covering Atchison. C. D. Barney & Co. and Post & Fagg bought Union .Pacific, and Bartlett, Frazier & Car rington took St. Paul. The loss of $3,624,000 by the banks to the sub-treasury on Friday, indicating the beginning of withdrawals by the government from depository Institu tions on a considerable scale, while not affecting stocks at the moment, evi dently did Induce some selling lato in the day. But bankers did not regard it as an unfavorable symptom. They had been declaring for some time past that it would be a wise course for the government to strengthen 'Its position at a time when the banks could easily spare the money and when Indications point to a growing plethora of funds In the banks at leading centres. With metal shares abroad in very weak condition and foreigners selling Amalgamated to this market, the out look for the stock was not very bright at the start. Boston houses hammered It down to 48 1-2. but they found some buying power there. Next to Reading It was the most -ctlre stock on the list. (Some stop-loss orders were reach ed at 49 and at BO. As a 2 per cent. Industrial there Is a general sentiment that the stock at 50 is high er.ough, es pecially when Steel common, paying the tame dividend, is quoted around 2. FINANCIAL NOTES. X. T., M.

There oere persistent reports also of instability in the iron market, although explanations wero offered on behalf of the princi pal producers that cutting of prices was confined to smaller interests to an amount of sales that made a neg ligeable quantity. The U. S. Steel stocks, however, were somewhat af fected by the reports and their de pression interrupted the slow advance in other stocks. Railroad traffic of ficials had little change in conditions to report. Slight increases in move ment of merchandise in less than car load lots was contrasted with a falling off in the grain movement, the decline in prices of grain , leading, apparently to lessened offerings. A sharp rebound in wheat prices also was the result of this showing. Snow storms, while in terrupting traffic to some extent, were considered beneficial to wheat crop prospects by providing a covering for tho winter snow grain. There were cabled reports of the presence in for eign centers of agents seeking to find a market for Intended new, American corporation securities. Arbitrage brok ers for foreign commission houses, however, sold stocks on balance in this market. Sterling exchange rates, nev ertheless, receded considerably below last week's level. The sub-treasury has taken up some large sums from the money market in the new banking week and the explanation Is made that return of government deposits has been made by some of the banks, vol untarily, on account of the cheapness of money at. the present time. New York banks also are making payments to tho sub-treasury on behalf of ln torlor correspondents for tho retire ment of circulation. Bonds were heavy and dull. Total sales par value $2,000,000. U.

Only fibout half a dozen stocks were traded in to the extent of more than a few hundred shares. Contending parties amongst the room traders made the varying fluctuations in these few stocks. As for STiy general outside in terest in the market, the situation was one of profound neglect. The specula tive attitude evidently is one of wait ing for new developments. The cover ing up of shorts in the market prelim inary to last week's holiday seemed to exhaust th,- outstanding open accounts in the markot.
