The stock market to-day was less active, but
prices, after a buoyant opening, advanced
steadily to the close. The news of the day was
almost entirely of a favorable nature. The fea
ture of the news were the settlement of the
trunk line trouble and Western Union's dividend
of 1)4 percent. There was an urgent demand
from foreigners in the early trading, which sur
prised the bears, and their operations for most
of the day were confined to attempts to cover
their outstanding contracts, which, even after
the cessation of the outside demand, kept the
market firm’and advancing for the remainder
of the day. Reading and Lackawanna were the
features of the morning hour, the crowd in the
former being so large that sales wen; made at
the opening % per cent, apart. Buying in these
stocks is said to be largely for inside parties.
The only important resistance to the Improve
ment was from the Chicago party, while Mr.
Connor, who has been credited with the princi
pal part in the lab* depression, though he denies
it, was to-day believed to lie. with the old bull
combination, active in bringing about a rally.
Union Pacific was still one of tue prune favorites,
and Richmond and West Point, while less active
than usual of late, was strong, notwith
standing the refusal of certain gentlemen
to serve on the board of directors. The
Manhattan again advanced on a dividend. Fort
Worth and Denver, on the strength of its very
favorable annual report, was strong. There
was very little bear news circulated, and there
was more outside buying than has been noticed
for some time. The opening was very strong at
advances extending to % per cent,, and on active
trailing further gain* were made, though there
was n > marked movement except in a few

Manchester. Dee, 14.—The Guardian says;
‘The market was very firm. Inquiry is mode
rate in most departments, but a good business
might be done in shipping yarns if sellers were
a little easier to he dealt with. Yesterday’s ex
perience confirms the impression in the dis
' ributing market that prices are not likely to
make even a small advance until diminished
supplies poke them tip The present position
of manufacturers is unenviable. Yarns, even
where they are easiest, are higher than they
were three months ago, while goods are rarely
higher, and in a few cases are actually lower.
An opinion, based on the disbelief in the esti
mates of the American cotton crop, prevail that
the present prices of cotton, especially of Ameri
can, are too high Buyers refraiu, therefore,
from making extensive engagements. There is
fair inquiry for export yarns, especially for
lower counts. Business for China, Japan and
India is only important where spinners are easy.
Cloth sales'have been light. Wide shirttings
are strong aud hardening. Heavy goods are

Green * Co.’s report on cotton futures says:
“The market has beeu a little nervous to-day,
but on the whole had considerable strengtti. and
made quite an advance along the entire line.
At first ratters looked a little toppy, and evi
dences of long cotton spilling were not want
ing, with something of the same kind notice
able throughout the season, but the demand
came out fully, and took the cost up in spite of
resistance. Buying was largely on New Orleans
account, and burst out suddenly about the time
of the ten-point advance at the latter place.
With the buoyancy additionally stimulated by
a light run of rece.pt.s, and more or less cheer
ful accounts from Liverpool, some 10® 12 points
advance were made, with a small reaction from
the highest, but the close was steady.”

Chicago. Doe. 14.- Before business began on
'Change to-dav predictions of lower prices, with
further breaks in grain markets, were made.
Slav wheat opened %®%c lower than last
night's close. There was good buying at this
price and May firmed up %c in less than ten
minutes. Buying was mostly by scalpers who
sold short yesterday and took advantage of easy
weariness to even up trades. In corn, May
opened at 53%c, with sales at the same time at
63c There was an unexpected good demand at
53c, and ten minutes later May was up to 53%c.
May pork opened unchanged. Heavy early pur
chases of corn by two prominent local opera
tor* advanced May to 58%c in the first half hour.
The break at 10310 landed May corn at 52%c.
Mav tKirk broke from sls 25 to sls 05. An hour
alter the oiiening -May sold at sls aud was weak
at that Tlie breaK continued and May wheat
went down to 82®82%c. The lowest prices of
the morning were reached by both com and
wheat after the break directly after 10:30. At
that time Mav wheat git down to 82©H2%c.
There was so much excitement and so much
selling when prices got down to this figure that
the crowd found itself short before it knew It.
A few attempts to even up made the crowd quite
nervous and value* reacted. Before noun May
I wheat was back to 83c, aud for a long time it
held moderately steady around 82%©83c. May
corn got down t<s 52%c on the break, and it re
acted on covering by nervous shorts. The break
was largely brought about by heavy sales by a
Detroit plunger. Packers flooded the corn pit
also, just before the break and helped the de
cline for its influence on provisions. At 12:30
May corn was reasonably steady around 53 'o',
but the crowd was still nervous. Provisions
were featureless. Any little demand would firm
prices up a trifle, but they would drop off of
themselves when the demand was withdrawn.
All the afternoon the markets were higher,
being largely influenced by corn, in which there
was free covering bv shorts. Slay corn advanced
