OFFICE OF THE MORNING NEWS. 1
Savannah, Ga, Dec. 9, 1887. f
General Remarks—The general market
during the past week has not shown any essen
tial changes. It has continued quiet for the load
ing staples with but little moving. Naturally
the attention of buyers has been largely
given to goods for the holidays,
after which the distribution from job
bers' hands has been on a very liberal
scale. Outside of this business all around was
rather tame. In most departments trading is
confined to actual wants, aud iu the general ag
gregate the amount of merchandise moving is
falling off. Values have been quite steady,
with few important changes, except the
firmness exhibited in food products and
the further advance in bacon, corn and flour.
The most activity in any of the jobbing branches
was felt in groceries, the demand from the in
terior being very steady, while the local inquiry
fs beginning to move in preparation for the
holidays. Dry goods there is a very light re
assortment trade in progress. In all other de
partments there is no special feature in the de
mand and shipments, and it continues in
about the same volume as for several weeks
past. Collections are rather slow, as usual.
The money market is easy, although there is a
very heavy demand for it. Exchange is easier,
both for foreign and domestic. There is noth
ing going on in the security market, which is
for the mcst part nominal for lack of offerings
of all desirable stocks aud bonds for invest
ment. The only feature of the week was the
semi-annual dividend of 4 per cent, by the Cen
tral Railroad and Banking Company. The fol
lowing resume of the week's business will show
the tone aud latest quotations of the different
markets at the close to-day: •
Naval Stores— The market for spirits tur
pentine was quiet throughout the week, and
prices sold down %c. though they closed firm at
81%c. for regulars. There was a pretty steady
demand which was freely met. The total sales
for the week were about 1,800 casks. Rosin, a
very quiet market has prevailed
with the common grades weak and lower There
was a fair demand, and fully 12,000 barrels
were disposed of during the week. In another
column will be found a weekly comparative
statement of receipts and exports from the be
ginning of the season to date, and for the
same period last year, showing the stocks on
hand and on shipboard not cleared, together
with the official closing quotations.
Rice—The market is without special change
during the past week, and was nominally steady.
There were pretty free offerings, and to effect
sales of round lots holders would have to afford
considerable concessions, as it was, the bulk of
the sales were fractionally lower than the cur
rent quotations on some grades. The better
qualities continue somewhat scarce. The total
sales for the week were about 1,300 barrels. The
following are the official quotations of the
Board of Trade. Small job lots are held at

Cotton. —The market was rather dull during
the past week. Buyers as a rule were without
orders, while not a few of the heaviest exporters
have considerable stocks banked up which were
purchased ahead in anticipation of orders.
There is altogether a doubt and uncer
tainty as to the size of the
present crop and the numerous estimates made
up by the different authorities have excited some
distrust in European markets. Prices for the
better grades were comparatively steady, but
the lower grades were reduced l-16@5-18e. all
around, they being proportionately hTgber than
New York. The total sales for the week were
4,150 bales. The following are the official
closing spot quotations of the Cotton Ex

Tne stock market to-day was very (lull except
for a few specialties. The street was treated to
a number of rumors, more or less vague, of a
conflicting character, but none of them had
much effect in the present narrowness of
speculation. The conspicuous weak spots were
New England, Fort Worth imd Denver and
Richmond Terminal, dealings in the lat ter again
occupying the most attention. The losses,
however, except in Terminal preferred, were
mostly regained late in the day. Speculation
in the stock is an enigma to the street, which
finds it Impossible to trace purchases and sales
to any |irty or individual. Canadian Pacific.
Union Pacific and Manhattan were notably
strong, foreigners having the first named freely
on a rumor that the Canadian government
would take the road and pay 8 per cent, upon
the stock, and the belief that a favorable settle
ment will be made with the government. The
opening was made at advances over yesterday's
final figures of from %®% per cent, but the
pressure brought to bear forced prices off in the
early trading. A reaction sen followed, how
ever, ami the market wss brought hack to the
neighborhood of opening prices. Then it be
< aine extremely dull, but remained firm until
after noon, wlieii Richmond Terminal stocks
showed weakness. The effect upon the general list
was of no importance, however, and prices were
firm throughout most of the afternoon, though
trading was devoid ol special feature. The close
was dull but firm, with most stocks at or near
the lest prices reached. Tbe general list is,
with but few exceptions, higher to- night/though
the only important gains are Canadian Pacific
2%, Manhattan 1%, and Union Pacific 1% per
cent, while Richmond Terminal and West Point

Green A Co.'s report on cotton futures says:
"It has been only a moderately active market
for contracts, with at first a slight inclination
to ease ofT. hut on the whole the undertone
proved pretty steady, and the early loss was re
covered. Port receipts have been reasonably
full, and the interior movement was not as light
as had been anticipated, but notwithstanding
seine decline in public cable quotations, private
accounts had a more cheerful strain, and pre
vented the pressure to realize. Indeed, an ab
sence of selling orders was the noticeable fen
ture throughout, and it did not require much
effort to hold positions. At the close the rates
differed only slightly from last evening, hut
were barely steady."
