The Business Jinn's bank, Eft 799 a(40 J C? WALL STREET NOTES Rally Toward Close Follows Much Weakness With Ex treme Losses. PACIFIC ROADS' SHOWING Attention raid to Income Account of. New York Central Break In Smelting. After an early spurt in stocks, they eased off gradually, and by midday we.re very weak, with extreme leases of 1 to 1 1-2 points. But trading was dull and liquidation was much smaller. It was apparent that last week's selling had cleared away most of the speculative accounts which were, to be liquidated. Sales to noon were about 290,000, as against 472.000 on Saturday. Around 1 o'clock there was a rally, on llfiht transactions, Un ion Pacific recovering from 154 7-8 to 1.15 ' 1-2 on four transactions of 100 shares each. It was In the last Itfteen minutes that the market showed slsns of real and general strength, led by 'I'nlon Pacific. i London cables, Including many pri vate advices, refer to the favorable influences exerted on that, and on fontlnental markets, by the meeting of the three crowned heads at Cron berg. One feature specially dwelt up on is the firmness which has develop ed In British consols. It. looks, how ever, ah though a fly will be. found in the ointment, if this morning's brief dispatch is confirmed, telling of a $500,000,000 British loan for naval construction purposes. London trad ed both ways In this market, and ap 'peared to have bought a few .inn res on balance, on the break. Total trans actions were probably less than 15,000 shares. American stocks were fea tureless In London before the local opening. The reports of Union Pacific and Southern Pacific for June showing small Increases In the net were con sidered as uncommonly favorable un der tho circumstances. They had probably oth been discounted a week ago, but, nevertheless, the stocks In creased fractionally after the publica tion of the figures. In both cases the decrease In the operating expenses had overtaken the decrease in the cross. It Is known that the figures for Juiy and the first parf of this month are much more favorable. The receivership for the Pennsyl vania Coal and Coke company was probably the cause for a little selling df Baltimore and Ohio and other soft coal s-tocks. That crop news was sufficiently re assuring, was reflected In a cent drop In the price of wheat around midday. This encouraged those who believed that the granger stocks are likely to lead any further upward movement, If such a thing Is possible, The nttentlon which Is being paid to the Income account of the Xew "'vk Central Is causing some uneasi ness among the friends of the rosd and the bulls on the stock. All that nas oean sain in rnn past, nnoui tn'3 in the matter of dividend payments is Hums ic.n.n.-u. n.m 1.. .... """ " more to ine cillt'l iiihl iiiiiichiimiin point to the necessity of taking In another reef. It is figured out that according to the report, made to the New York Stock Exchange for the June half-year the company earned the merest fraction beyond 1 per cent. In Its share capital, find that even un der the most favorable conditions re sults are not likely to show more than 4 1-2 per cent, for the full period. Where such windfalls are to coma from this time as brought Central out whole a year ago, Is a question perplexing many who still believe In the Integrity of the present dividend. The break around midday of Amer ican Smelting from 03 to 90 1-4 was probably due to a bear attack, which was designed to cheek the attempt to rally the general market. Smelting having risen about the most sharply of anything on the list, was eRsiest to depress. Since the last week of May It had advanced from around 72 to 107, or 35 points. It, was little won der, therefore, that it should have de clined 16 1-4 points last. week. Yes terday the further decline In copper metal was used as an argument for selling this stock. The low price of silver was also referred to as a rea son why Smelting stock Is very high. But bar sliver recovered a llttlo In London yesterday. Copper also was steady there. CLOSING rltlCES.

Ausr. 17. Irregularity was the chief feature of to-rlay's stock market. Prices rose and fell alternately, mostly within narrow range although some of the more active features registered sub stantial gains at the opening. The trading bore evidence of hear pres sure and the general professionalism, although close observers expressed the opinion that stocks are gradually passing Into stronger hands. This be lief appears to be based largely on the operations of certain prominent banking; and brokerage houses, as well as the continued ease of money, further prospects of good crops and advices from the leading railroad centres, which almost uniformly re port Indications of awakening busi ness. Quite the most Important de velopment of the day In railway cir cles was the publication of the annual report of the Harrlman lines for the fiscal year, The Union Pacific sys tems showed a net loss compared with the previous year of about $2,170,000, while the Southern Pacific railway reported a net decrease for the same period of $8,863,000, In both In stances, however, the falling off was largely duo to Increased taxes. Both lines show material gains In net earn ings for the month of June. The receivership proceedings against the Pennsylvania Coal and Coke company served to call attention to the "soft coal situation, but was otherwise ignored. As a whole the coalers held comparatively firm, though Reading was frequently sub jected to pressure. Smelting led the Industrial stocks, making a sharp re covery from Saturday's close, and the coppers moved In sympathy despite another cut In the price of the metal. The methods of a well known market manipulator from New England caus ed some uneasiness In conservative quarters hut elsewhere they subjected to good natureij ridicule. Much the greater part of the day's business was done In the early session, trading be coming very narrow In the afternoon, while the list developed a heavy un dertone. Towards the close, however, under the lead of St. Paul, Smelting and Reading, the market grew strong and tho closing was active at the day's best prices. Government bonds were unchanged on call. The general bond market Total sales par value, FINE VI FLU OF CORN. At Spring-sldo Farm It N I'it'lcnn Feet High.
