Stocks and Bonds.
NEW YORK. Jan. 26.-There wera
Indications at odd moments of today's
stock market session that the limit of
absorption had been reached, but
these were dispelled in the later deal
ings, when a broad buying movement
wiped out most of the early loases and
sent numerous important issues to the
highest level attained since the renew,
al of open trading. Dealings in
stocks showed a marked decrease
from the preceding day's extraordi
nary activity, but this was more than
offset by the gain ia bonds, tbe busi
ness in these securities aggregating
the largest amount of any daj since
the exchange reopened.
Aside from continued activity in
Missouri Pacific stock low priced
stocks' were less in evidence, many
shares constituting that group "being
dull and lower. - B*"ulehem Steel
common waa inclined to droop on ru
mors that no dividends would be auf
thorized for a long time, and Pressed
Steel Car fell precipitately on report
that the company had failed to re
ceive some large contracts recently
Pressure waa directed upon soma
of the leaders, particularly United
States Steel and the principal cop
pers, board room gossip attributing
the temporary heaviness of these
stocks to foreign selling. * London,
from all accounts, disposed of a mod
erate amount of American stocks In
Advices from Pittsburgh gave a more
favorable aspect to the outlook tor the
steel industry. Copper prices held at
14 cents, but some disappointment
was felt at the Amalgamated dividend,
which was again declared on the 50
cent quarterly basis.
Many of tho day's gaina in bonds
were lu speculative issues, advances
extending from 1 to 4 per cent. Total
sales, par value,' were $3.960,000.
United States government register*
ed 2's were up 1-8 per cent, on call.

NEW YORK. Jan. 20.-An early de
cline in cotton waa followed by a
very sharp recovery today and most
of the activo months sold a point or
two above tae previous best level with
the close firm at a' net advance of 13
to 15 point*.
Yesterday'.' selling movement was
renewed during the early trading, and
after opening steady at unchanged
prices to a decline of 7 points.- the
market sold about 6 to 10 points net

also considerable selling by houses

however, and the selling soon became
less active? Bullish traders took that

ed a renewal of Investment demand.
Th? market later became more ac

New Orleans Cotton
NEW ORLEANS, Jan. 20.-Tho cot
ton market today rose from a net de
cline of 9 to ll points in-the early
j trading to a net advance of 17 to 19
points In the afternoon and closed at
a gain ot 15 to 17 points, in the morn
ing there was much talk of a pro
nounced reaction, but the lower prices
brought out a large volume of fresh
investment, buying to w i ch later, was
added buying for the account of prom
inent spot interests.
The strength of Southern spot mar
kets, the Indifference ot spot holders
and the continued good demand -for
export .were Sustaining- factors. The
rm ly bearish feature waa thc claim
that because of the rise in prices lind
owners in some sections were requir
ing tenants to sign contracts to plsnt
as much cotton thia spring as last
In the afternoon the market devel
oped considerable activity and there
was less liquidation than then has
been during: the last few sessions.
This and the growing timidity of
