()kii a savings account with tlil Rank. Open Saturday Kcnlnei for Your Convenience, WALL STREET NOTES Traction Stocks Prominent Much Profit-Taking; in Market. LONDON BUYS 40,000 Explanation for Strength of Kite ftteel Earnings Rooked for a Rise. Rtartlna n"rslly hlRher, storks continued to advance by degree un til early In the afternoon. Southern Pacific, tTnlnn Pm-lnr and Readliiu were attain prominent, nil of them touching new high prlcen for Hie ear. St. Paul, Northwestern ami a few , .others also developed much strength. Put there were wlRtis or a good deal of profit-taking cany in tnc afternoon. United stateti mci .om jnon wan only fairly steady, after early heaviness. The short intre. liad apparently been run In before the afternoon. Support from this Quarter being lacking, there was very little buying power In the market In the last hour . The arbitrageurs were estimated to have bought In all about 40.nn, shares. They reported that some New" Yorkers sold rather freely In London yesterday before the opening! of this market, and that they had considerable difficulty In buying back their stock here. ' With a Iohk of J2S5,OftO (n the gross j lor July, Chesapeake and "hln showed a decrease of only $?:i.(lio In the net, Jt will, If business continue favora ble, probably show an Increase In the net very soon. The only explanation heard In Watl street for the strength In EHo was that It waa moving with the other Harrlman stocks Southern Pacific, Union Pacific, Illinois Central and Pflltimore and Ohio. The only news In Erie was the preliminary Income account for the fiscal "year ended June 30, showing total Income $12.3.17.000, with fixed . charges of $13,l)fi!),000. The price touched by the stock on the morning's advance. 25 7-8, was the highest of the year, and compared with a price of 12 last March. The achieving of aVlgh record of the sort, on the publication of a report show ing the fiscal year's fixed charge un earned by $1,631,000, was a striking instance of the attitude of speculative Wall street towards any enterprise taken In hand by Mr. Harrlman. It was said after the annual meet ing and election of the American Smelting and Refining company that there was no representative of Stand ard Oil Interests on the board. Bids for copper metal were lowered 1-8 cent a pound all around In the afternoon, but the offering prices were held at previous figures. The heavy tone of the metal probably Induced some selling of copper stock, the road out of Its financial hole. It Is understood In well-informed quarters that the Steel corporation's earnings for the three months ending svlth September will be far In excess of most estimates and will make a very encouraging exhibit. A revlHlnn of calculations as to results for the year has been In order, and while, of course, the outcome will not be a bril liant one, It is believed that Jt will more thap fulfill the most liberal ex portation. Knowledge of these facts, It, Is said, has led to much of the buy ing which has been seen In the pre ferred stock, which haa recently run Its best record very close, and which Is confidently ppoken of as likely to sell at 120 on the present movement. The bond market will he subjected to a little test on the 2Bth Inst., when State Controller Glynn will offer $5, 000,000 of New York Canal Improve ment fifty-year 3 per cent, bonds. These bonds arc exempt from taxa tion, and under the law, therefore, are equal to a 4 per cent, hond at par when in the hands of Insurance companies, trust companies or savings banks.

The tone of the speculation In stocks today showed a degree of distrust and hesitation. The feeling was based on the heights to which prices have been carried already and found expression In refraining from further buying and bidding up 0 stocks, more than in any active at tempts to get them lower. The lesson of the recent punishment administered to the bears Is too fresh In mind yet to have lost its Intimidating effect. The doubts about the warrant for the pres ent level of prices are due to some skepticism over the alleged rate of re ruperatlon In business. The absence of the usual Reasonable demand from the Interior for funds is the subject of growing remarks. The pressure of funds for investment Is perfectly log leal. Even with prices of stocks at a level to Invite realising sales, the dlf Acuity of finding, other profitable em ploymcnt for funds deters holders from selling. Money on call Is almost n drug In the market and the scant supplies of desirable commercial paper are eagerly sought for investment. The railroad mortgage market Is affected in the same way. The report that foreign Investors are Joining In this demand Is less easy of comprehension In view of the International exchange situation. !,nndnn and Berlin were reported large buyers of stocks here today, and this was an important, factor In the early strength of the market. The price of copper was marked down at. the New York metal exchange and this, with the poor showing of the annual report of the American Smelting and Refining company, made the copper shares vul nerable to pressure, The Increasing ex cluslvenesH of the demand to the Har rlman stocks, with the neglect of the general list, was a. source of dissatis faction to those long of stocks. Amer. Icon Smelting broke with some vio lence and the whole list sold off. Rem nants of the advances were left In the strongest stocks. Bonds were irregular, Total sales par value, $5,812,000. t.I. S. bonds were unchanged on call. COTTON rTICTMV,T8 STAND. Court Iicnlcs Motion of Price Haas In Ijeflk Scandal. and Nw York, Sept. 2.

VERMONT AND TMK KTIU'.KT. I'.lcctlon Pluralllv Not I'otixlilcred an Eiicout'naliitf Slun. New York, Sept. !!. Un the Stork Kxchange, opinion was divided bh to the mo rn I effect of tho Vermont elec tion results, The republican plurality, 2il,00(i, was slightly lielnw the popular estimate of 110, 000, and liter was sonie disposition to lay slress on the fact that It Is much the smallest plur ality since 180L'. Willi Street was rather more disposed to lay stress on this fiict than on the comfortable ex cess over the traditional '.end-llne" of 2S.000. It .was characteristic of Wall Street that It listened more ser iously to the unfavorable Inferences when the stork market censed advanc ing, and that, discussion at. once be min of the Mulno slate eleilon, week after nxt. Maine, however, has nev cr been so safe a 'criterion of national tendencies In presidential years un Vermont; local issues have frequently complicated the result.
