Wall Street Review.
Now York, May 27,-Today's stock
murUet was an Irregular drift over a frac
tional rango for the most pait below
yesterday's closing level. There wcro a
row exceptions among minor stocks. Tho
recent demand for Wisconsin Central
stocks continued, accompanied by ru
mors of buying for control. Tlicro wob an
upwnid movement In Sugar when the re
port reached Wall street of a confer
ence of senators to attempt an agree
ment upon Cuban reciprocity; but tho
stock dropped back when tho confer
ence adjourned without action. A rlBo of
nearly two points In American Locomo
tive seemed a supplement to that of yes
terday in tho car stocks. Pressed Steel
Car reacted sharply over threo points on
tho emphatic denial of yesterday's ru
mors of a merger with tho American Car
company. Canadian Pncltlc continued by
far the most actlvo stock In tho list. It
dropped sharply 2'i In tho first row min
utes of trading, but was rallied by ar
bitrage buying from Canadian centers
whero tho absorption of tho stock con
tinued nt figures above tho Now York
level. Tho reaction wns considered a re
sult of tho speculation which has fol
lowed the rise, but the conviction remains
In Wall Btreet that Important develop
ments nro pending In tho property. Tho
nbseneo of developments In tho coal str ko
situation did not prevent tho ropresslvo
iulluenco exercised by the strike, which
Is emphasized by tho IncrenBlng scarcity
of coal and the growing effect on other
Industries. Tho government's weekly
crop bulletin may have had somo unfa
vorable effect becauso of tho Vlelay to
seeding of tho corn crop reported. A
batch of favorable railroad earnings, In
cluding tho net showing for April of a
number of important systems and good
Increases In gross earnings for tho third
week In Muy of others wns without ap
parent effect In the market. Total sales,
307.R0O shares. The bond market was dull
nnd Irregular. Totnl sales, par value, $1.
7OT.000. United States bonds wore all un
changed on tho last call.
