.New Yolk, Dec. 12. Activity in a Jaige num
ber of usually dormant secuiitics was taken by
traders today to demonstrate increased Interest
in the stock market on the part of the outside
public, liaiim in these piopertles were more ex
tensile than in the usual inatket leaders and ex
tended lo 4 points in tome, cases, ticnendly
speaking the market during tlie foienoon dis
played great animation and strength with specu
lative interest radiating fium one group of stocks
lo another. The inaiket for Americana abiu.nl
was described as buoyant und the aibitiage
houdes bona lit about .Ij.oon shares on balance fur
Lcndon. At the outset of business the coal slocks
weio the principal leuuire.s and generally got
well above last night's close on an enormous
demand. These properties later on allowed the
eltect of lieavy reallz-itions. Heaiy buyuig de
veloped in tlie steel stocks owing to continued
encouraging reports of the Uvie outlook. Tliete
was veiy lieavy buying at intervals in the (Irang
cis, Pacifies and some of the southern and
.southwestern stocks, vltlt Builington, Kansas
nnd Texas prefeiied, and Louisville especially
prominent. Duiing the eaily ntlernoon niter the
foreign buying had cea?ed the demand showed
signs of eNliaustiun and pi Ices weic inclined lo
yield. Xot much improvement was made in
piiccs when the tiadcrs lealired and theie wus a
few strong spots which kept the general inaiket
pretty well in 'heel:. Unusually large dealinas
in the Lake Krie and Western stocks caused a
rise of 4 and ,i respectively for the common
and pieferred, and New Yolk, Chicago and St.
Louis prefcired jumped 1 points to 100. An in
crease of !,i per cent, occuued in the semi- an
nual ditidend in the Minneapolis, St. Louts
slock. In the final hour a raid was made on
Tennessee Coal and the stock broke 11 per cent,
on a rumor that the directors were in session
md had passed the quarterly dividend on the
. IK. nils movement unsettled tlie entire
market nnd prices fell away rapidly, aveiaging
u point for the most piomineut railroads and
extending to iVi in the specialties the tin
plate being most affected. When it became
known that the leport of dividend anion on
Tennessee Coal was unfounded the stock milled
2 points and all other stocks uncovered somewhat,
speculation leaving !t strong again and active.
Total sales, 810,300 shares, business in bonds
was veiy heavy and notable stirngth was dis
played by Kansas and Texas issues. Reading
touis got up to !)3',4 eaily but lost practically all
the lise in sympathy with the decline in the
stock-. Tlie market otherwise was untntpittiue
aud iuegular. Total sales, pur vaue, $3,l)70,iJQ.
United States lefunding 2s registered advanced
'a and new 4s i't per cent, on tlie last call.
