. Wall Street Review. .
New York, April 14. Speculation at
the stock exchange la broadening, the
dealings In stocks today having1 ag
gregated 213,854 shares. A more con fid -
dent tone also characterised the trad
ing, the recent official statements from
Washington that action on the Cuban
resolutions Is likely to be postponed for
some time again exerting a stimulating
effect. The further reduction In the
posted rates of sterling exchange to 4V
and 489 and a belief that there will
be no gold shipments this week added
to the bullish feeling. Furthermore the
Impression that the more seasonable
weather is bound to effect trade favor
ably led to buying by the more venture
some of the bulls and their purchases
assisted the upward movement during
the early session. As of late the In
dustrials were most conspicuous in the
transactions, sugar figuring for 42.600
shares. Tobacco for 36.700 and Chicago
Gas for 14,100 shares. Sugar rose to
123, the best price attained since the
current upward movement set in.
The stock was taken by lower wall
street Interests on the favorable out
look for the trade. In the late dealings
the stock ran off to 122aH. Tobacco af
ter declining to 84. rose to Sti',4 and
later broke and closed at 84. The stock
at one time commanded per cent,
premium for use. The break was due
to the revival of the rumor that the
scrip dividend will be enjoined. Chi
cago Gas rose to 70. It was stated
that the company Intended resuming
the payment of dividends, but nothing
authentic could be obtained and the re
port was not generally credited. Gen
eral Electrio was weaker than the other
industrials and fell to 37i on moderate
saled. In the railway list the Vander-
Diits. uoulds, Grangers and Reading
stocks were In better demand. Mich

of nearly 2 per cent, at 97 while Man
hattan brought 112H. In the late trad

Cleveland, Ohio. April 14. "Hon! solt

pins and badges will be instructed to

DRAWS A BIQ SALARY.
The Watch Adjuster Sometimes Makes as
31 nch as $1 0,000 a Year.
From the New York Sun.
Perhaps the most highly skilled and
best paid men In the watch making;
business are the watch adjusters. Ono
adjuster In a great factory used to re
ceive $10,000 a year. The adjuster's work
Is one of the Important elements of cost
In the making of a fine watch, and a
$10,000 adjuster should be competent
to perfect any watch, whatever Its deli
cacy and cost. It Is the business of the
adjuster to take a new watch and care
fully go over all Its parts, fitting them
together so that the watch may be regu
lated to keep time accurately to the
fraction of a minute a month. Regulat
ing Is a very different process from ad
justing, and much simpler.
A watch that can be regulated so as
to keep accurate time may need the
hand of the adjuster, and If It Is val
uable the owner will be advised to have
It adjusted. There are watch adjust
ers In New York working on their own
account and earning very comfortable
Incomes. To the adjuster every watch
that comes under his hands gets to have
a character of its own. He knows every
wheel and screw and spindle that help
to constitute the watch. He knows its
constitution as a physician knows that
of an old patient. He can Bay what the
watch needs after an accident, and can
advise as to whether It Is worth ad
Justing. No new watch can be depend
ed upon until it has passed the hands
of the adjuster, for, however admirable
the Individual parts of the works, their
perfect balance Is to be obtained only
by such study and experiment as It Is
the business of the adjuster to make.
The adjuster Is a highly skillful
mechanic, with wide knowledge of his
trade and the utmost deftness in its
