NEW MR STICKS AND BONDS Farther Speculative Liquidation it Feature of Market. PEICES DE0P TO LOWER LEVEL Oafslde Deanaad Proves lasofllrleat to Absorb OsTerlaa-a aad Bear Party Is Eaeoaragred to Make Aaothrr Raid. NEW TORK. Vsy ST. Further specj lstiTe lkiuldstlon was obvious in today s stotk market, during the progress of wl.Uh prices were carried to a lower level than has been touched sinoe the movement b gan In the latter part of last week. The downward course of prices finds as little in the actual news to account for It as did the previous advance, a fact which strengthens the view that the operations sre centered In few hands. While the s-ll-irg now in progress need not represent fears of coming unfavorable events. It must be accepted as a reflection of a cer tain disappointment over the effect of such favorable developments as have occurred and which have failed to incite a sufficient demand for stocks to absorb realising sales, eaeept at the price concessions which are being mad. When the stationary level was ohce fairly established, there came Into notice also revived activity on the part of the encnuraK-ed bear party in the circu lation of reports calculated to prompt sell Ins of stocks and so help on the effort to depress prices, feme such reports bday were of conridersble effect. This effect was clearly een in the case of some of the railroads of lower credit under sus picion, earlier in the year, of financial em batrassment. bjt since credited with being safely extricated from their troublee. On account of these rescues, the reKjnd In the stocks from extn-nie depression was particularly violent, leaving them the more vulnerable to the revival of rumors im pugning their solvency. The violent breaks tn this class In today's market aided ma terially In the bear campaign for lower pricea. The character of some of the crop dam age reports also awakenod suspicion of bearish origin by reason of the mysterious allusions to thf- hidden sources of In formation on which they were based. The viultiit fluctuations In grain prices yester day gave force to these rumors, although largely due to technical speculative con ditions In those markets. This was better perceived today when detailed news of weather conditions was known. Another field of bearish Industry was in the al leged intention of the federal government in the matter of further prosecutions of cerporatlons. The filing of the suit of the government against the New Haven has left speculative sentiment on this subject sensitive. However, the Influence of numerous rumors In this class was some what dashed by the assertion of the at torney general, as reported In Washington dispatches, that "they seem to be stock lobbing affairs." With these various evi dences of professional bear operations on an active scale, the disposition to sell stocks became less urgent and the shorts found themselves less able to cover their commit ments when they sought to buy for that purpose. The later resiliency of the mar ket waa the natural consequence. The easy tone developed in the bond market waa of more Influence on financial sentiment even than the break in stocks. The feeling over the Investment situation was affected by the reception given to new notea issues opened for subscription and for which the demand 1s less keen than for the high grade bond issues previously of fered, in spite 3f the attractive return of thia class of lssufs. The engagement of more gold for loth France and (rermar.y added to the sum which must come out of the total of the banks' cash holdings in making up the coming bank statement and which has reached a sufficient figure to make a considerable proportional in road even on the wide margin cf the pres ent surplus. The effect of the week's finan cing on the loan item, also, must be reck oned with. The tone of the money market was not affected. bonds were easy. Total sales, par value, 22,706.000.

Thla waa not enough to make very much of a market, still it waa a great plenty.- considering the unfavorable condition of the trade. In fact light recelpta were welcome so as to give the market a little breathing spell and a chance to recuperate. There seemed to be orders for a few good caule and buyers were out in the yards esrly In the morning and picked out here and there such stuff as would suit their purposes, paying generally A little- atronger pricea. In fact quits a number of salesmen who hsd the right kind thought they sold out &tjT0c higher than yesterday. On the other hand, cattle that did not find special favor tn buyers' eyes were no more than ste'sdy and all low price cattle were very slow and hard to move at weak prices. Cows and heUera of good" quality were lh light supply and sold qutte readily at firm prices as compared with yesterday. The common to medium kinds were no bet ter than steady. Good bulla ara selling con siderably lower than they were a short time ago. but it ia A noticeable fact that the commoner grades such as are known on the market as Bologna bulls were in good demand and were selling closer than usual to the best grades. There were no stackers or feeders In the yards this morning, but the feeling; waa about steady.
