Wall Street Review.
New York. Oct. 17. Another ilny of rlfl
Imr pilres olintiietcHzeil the stock spcdi
lutloti Intltiy nml thu ilegreo ot eonlldciico
thiit prevailed wuh notiihla coiilm."! to
the donicst'cil fcelliiK tlitit exlntrd lit the
outset of Hip week. The fomnit ntinotmcu
nipul that Brciet.iry Hluuv Imit iibi-ih-U to
iiiinhnBL' nil hiinrlH of the Issue of IPJj iiru
Rented ut the mili-tivnmiiy today unci to
mm low v,ix nn I'ffccliml lonlu to the
niiirkcl. It win Minted Hint n block of ,
(KXi.onO luiil been accepted and It was pic
iIIcIimI tlmt fully twice us miir-h move
would Ikj Immediately turned In by a HJM;
dlcate ati l.iii nnd (nteicsl which would
net nboilt 13S. All told It wum expected
that the teudei-H under thin erf er would
lcsull In Urn release of about ?:0,(W M
ticiiBtny funds whleli would bo speedily
available to the local money nmiKet.
With this prefpect of new mntciliil in
KlKht to rolitmue nrtlve opeintlons tlio
pools went to work with omwldernhlu
eonlldcnco and bid tip their favorites
notahlv. The call money maikct showed
mihu today nnd theie were conlldont expec
tations that u good hunk statement would
bo Issued tomiurow which would contrib
ute toward further each next week. 'I no
usual crop rumors tcspectliiK this or that
stock was put to Kood iisiiKe riiirlnff thu
dav hut the most tangible, assertion was
that a favoinble traffic iilllnnco had been
effected between St. Paul and Union l'a
el He. Not much was heavd of the ru
mored Increase In the Norfolk and West
ern dividend and yesterday's Interest hi
that stock was hugely shifted Into other
quarters. The soft coal stocks ns n group
were u notable feature of the day and an
early rise of almost 4 points In Haltlmore
and Ohio caused an Increased demand for
other stocks of this class. Heavy opera
tions weio resumed In Norfolk and west
ern nt the opening but after a rise to U
the stock was liquidated heally and sold
under vesterdny's close for a couslderablo
ii.ut of the day. Hut little interest was
displayed In the anthr.ielte coal stocks and
there was some disposition to i educe
dealings in them until the actual .settle
ment with the mlneis is worked out.
Trading was furiously active dining tho
first two hours and when the list showed
some disposition to lag. St. Timl was
brought foiward ns a leader. Immense
blocks or this stock wen; taken, lifting it
Pf, to tPI'i. 1irge orders were placed
simultaneously in other tians-contlnentjil
slocks nnd there was a ready response in
nil other p.irts of the list. While there,
was some shifting ol inteiest fiom one
gioup to another the lessened demand lor
special stocks did not undermine, the
strong tone which permeated the entire
ll&t. The lTnlted States Steel stocks be
came prominent after a long period of
neglect, and their ilsc stalled an active
demand for various oilier Independent
lion nnd steel stocks. J-nte In the day a
lit aw buying movement developed In
the eastern tiunk lines led by New York
(Vntml and tbeio was a more general In
iiulrv for the higher priced r.iilioucK in
eluding Illinois Central and the Grangers.
Top prices showed a fair sprinkling ot
gains, reaching U points nnd over nwl
there wore munv of a. point or more. I ho
closing was active and strong but some
of the leading features of the day were
below the best. Totnl sales for tho day.
1.107."fiO shares. Ilnlhoad bonds sympa
