WALL STREET REVIEW.
New York. Feb. 5. Business at the
Stock Exchange was virtually crowded
Into the last hour of trading, and during
this time commission houses had no rea-
sun to comuiuln or a luck of order. Early
iu the day brokers and operators were
walling to hear from Washington In the
mutter of the bond Issue. The success
of the loan was generally admitted weeks
ago but the amount or tne dims, nearly
Vi (Ml.txHt Mimulv antonlshed the street.
The piiees, loo, were a great deal better
than expected, the average being above
110. The syndlcute. It will be remembered,
was under II",. The magnitude of the bids
nnd the prices tendered led to general
business buying of the market and prices
moved up any wnere rrom M to 2"n per cent.
Sugar was a feature and after fulling
from to 7.T rose to 109'i. The early
decline was the result of the passing of
the sugar Dounty Dy tne Diinaesratn. in
the last hour the shorts were the most
consDicuous buyers. Leather, preferred,
moved up from 64? to 4J7H on reports from
Boston that the money for the February
dividend will be in the bank. The west
ern stocks, such as St. Paul. Rock Island
and Burlington and (Jiilncy were In better
demand on tne splendid snowing or earn
ing recently published. Speculation closed
strong with an advancing tendency. The
total sales were 28V,w snares.
