Wall Street Review.
New Yoik, Poll. 5. Today's stock market waa
a dull affair again, in spllo of spasmodic efforts
by piofessional tiadcis nnd speculative pools to
awaken 11 gcneial moiement in the market, lly
the time they tucceeded in moving priced at one
point, depression would develop in another, and
in consequent 0 the dull movement was Irregular
all day. Striking movement in iloily held h.gh
priced investment stocks continued a flguie. Tae
significance uJ these movements was not disclosed,
although Indus sought to make the most of
them for their sympathetic eflcct on the gcncr.'l
list. These apparently sensational movements on
a very small vulunie of trading aie a natural
consequence vvheie the stock or a company is
closely held for tiie puiposes of coatiol and
centralized in the hands of a few -conservative
and powerful riplt.illsts for investment, who aie
quite unlnlluenced by the couise of prices In tl.u
open markett. Among the stocks o moving to
day wcio the Chicago and Xorliiwestcim, Ameri
can L'xpiess, United States Hxpres aril Lacka
wanna. Nashville, Chattanooga, and St. Louis,
which advanced 10'A .vesterday, leaded 3', to
day, but cloe with a net lots of only 2. Tho
recent sensational upward movement in Lacka
wanna is associated with the minors 0! control
of tint load in tho interest of an outlet for
the Wabash system. The Walm-h stocks wero
vciy Hi 111 today in the same connection. Another
center of speculation was in tho locil traction
stocks, under the Influence of published icpoits
from Philadelphia, of the formation of a securi
ties company to hold Metropolitan Street Hall
way 6tock and po-ibly other local traction com
piuirj. Manhattan was the most active of this
group and Mctiopolitau Street ll.1ilw.1y, after an
upward spurt of Hi, declined on profit-taking,
falling lvi Ulu'.v la.st night dining the day and
pulling the other local tractions down with It.
The speculation in Amalgamated Copper was very
foverMi, the price running olt ls during the
morning on the further break in the London
copper maiket and tho slump in HIo Tmtos. The
steadying of tho London copper market and re
ports of a panic amongst the bcais in HIo Tin
tos, tallied Amalgamated Copper to l'u 01 ei last
night, and it was an (uVttive factor in the late
ally in tlio evv York stock maiket. The specu.
hitlvo pool operating in Southern Pacific htoe's
took that stock v igoroiuly in hand and pushed It
up l?i on veiy huge bujing. Tho general mar
ket i.illied with scmo vigor in vjup.itliy, St.
Paul lislng 2 points over last night and a num
ber of other trans-continentals about a point.
United States Steel also developed some stiength
jii't nt the clo-e. biker fintures of strength were
tho Toledo, St. Ivouls and Western stocks and the
Juulon Vandeibilts, on tumoy of absoiptiou of
the former by Vanderbllt interests. Minneapolis,
St. Paul and S.iult Sto Mario piefcncd advanced
J'-i more point". The recent bujing of sugar
continued, hut its net gain was only a fraction.
There was 110 general influence clfectivo In the
market at any time be.voud .1 disposition to dull
neo, caused by the cxpoit movement of gold
and the unscttlid question of the Noithcni Se
em itles company case. Total sales today, 0S3,
Tho bond maiket was only modoiatcly active,
but was inclined to be Hun. Total sales, par
value, $1,710,000. United States refunding 2s
advanced ',4 pir cent, on the last calf.
