It will probably be pome days before the plan for the new bond issue will bo made public. Satisfaction was expressed over the prospect of putting through the Wee land currency bill and of making com mercial paper the basis of tho new circulation. Tills, it is believed, will be F.itlsfnctfiry for the present to large business Interests, as It recognizes, first of all, commercial necessities.

'Mclulyre it Co., to the effect that It was the general cus tom among brokerage houses lo borrow on securities which their cuslomers had deposited In trust, or which pad been sent In for purpose of transfer. No disclosure In years has caused morn comment In Wall street circles, and the fact that the charge was made by a former member, of the exchange, whose bouse at one time had a large clientele throughout tho t'nlled States, Irritated tho leading brokers to a degree that has been randy displayed before. The best -known members of tho ex change declared that thorn wan no basis whatever for Mr, rclntyre,i sweeping assertion, and that he utter ly misrepresented tho prevailing cus. torn. Ceorgn W. Ely, secretary of the Slock exchange, a1d: "It la absolutely untrue to say that It Is the custom among brokerage houses to hypothecate securities be longing to customers. No brokers lias a right to do such a tiling, and the Stock Kxchnngn would not countenance tho practice for a moment. Kvery member knows that pitch a practice Is repre hensible, and It Is absurd to say that It constitutes a general custom with Wall street houses." I'RKKillT R ATI'S TO STAND.

New York, May 7 Representatives of eastern railroads met nt tho offices of the Trunk Dine asaoclatlon again to day, to discuss plans for Increasing freight rates: It developed that officials of some of the companies were strongly opposed to Increasing rati s on the ground that tills was not the time for such action. A round of the railway olllces failed to develop a single officer who admit ted that he favored an Increase in rates; nevertheless, the dally meetings are being continued. I'nless this op position is overcome It Is not likely that rates will be Increased along tup lines proposed, without one exception every railway official who discussed the subject, stat ed that be was opposed to a horizontal Increase of 10 per cent, in freight rates. It was pointed out that In some cases (lie recent reductions forced by state legislators had actually brought about discriminations that were harmful to certain communities. In such cases, It was said, n readjustment must sooner or later take place: but on all sides doubt was expressed a3 to whether tills was the time to act.

New York, May 7. The advancing tendency of prices was partly cheeked to-day or broken In upon by renctlons in some of the recent strong stocks, others continued to rise, but without the dominating effort In the llarrlman Issues. Rending was the conspicuous example. That stock was carried back to the previous high level of die year, and slightly above, lint encoun tered repented setbacks In the way of selling at about that stage of the ad vance. The moderale reactionary ten dency of prices was attributed to tech nical conditions, especially the attrac tion nf profits accrued and the Induce ment thus offered to sell, and the re duction of the short Interest forced to cover In the course of the rise, thus lessening the necessity to buy stocks. Hoyond these considerations there was pome disappointment that no notion was taken by the I'nlon Pacific au thorities towards the sale of the In tended bond Issue. The failure to ob tain a ojuoruni of the directors for the meeting which Wall street, expected would net 011 the bond Issue wa.i stal ed to iie due to the necessity for the presence of the president of the com pany tit. another Important meeting. The assumption that this other Impor tant meeting had to do with the ef forts making among rail road ofliclnls to bring about an advance In freight rates directed attention to that topic, which Is an Important one In the view of tho speculative element. The belief that, freight rates were to lie advanced has been a notable In fluence on tho recent strength of stocks. Reports are now emanating from the conferences on tho subject of unexpected difficulties being met wilh In putting tho project. Into force, Not the least of these Is Hie organized protest from shippers against, raising charges for transportation nt a time when business depression calls .for low prices to stimulate demand. The presence In the city nf Iron men to confer on tho situation In that trade had a similar Inlluence by reason of the principal (piestlon Involved that of the maintenance of schedule prices. Money conditions were little changed, The slrong return nf the Punk of France was a feature nf the day's news, as It gives promise nf the satis faction of the, demand at Paris for gold from London and New York.
