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 specialties Tne volume of business suffered a marked decrease after the first demand was S': iplied, bit the appreciation of values, while slov. ceased only with the close of business, THE MORNING NEWS: THURSDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1887, which was quiet but firm, generally at or near the best figures reached.

Market closed quiet. 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 quiet.” New York, Dec. 14. noon.—Cotton dull but firm: middling uplands 10 9-16 c, middling Or leans 10 11-16 c; safes 25 bales.

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, 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.” Galveston, Dec. 14.—Cotton firm; middling 9%c; net receipts 4.903 bales, gross 4,903; sales 2pcs bales; stock 110,748 bales; e xports, to Great Britain 6,354 bales, coastwise 4,557.

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 to 53%c. Cash quotations were as follows: Flour dull.
