The stock market to-day has been duller than
on any previous day this year, and the trans
actions entirely professional, being for the most
part without character or significance. Fluctua
tions were confined to the narrowest limits,
most of the list showing less than 54 per cent,
between extreme prices of the day, while only
four stocks fluctuated as widely as 1 per cent.
Richmond and West Point was prominent for
strength, though it was not till late in the day
that it began to move. A sharp spurt in Hock
ing Valley was the feature of the late trading,
and its price was advanced 154 P*? r cent., closing
at the best figure. The opening was rather
heavy, and the market exhibited little more
animation than yesterday at that time, and
prices shaded off small fractions, butt lie list
soon rallied. Kansas and Texas became the fea
ture, but the remainder did not res|iond to tile
strength shown in that stock, and prices until
well into the afternoon were on a slightly lower
than those of the opening. Union Pacific had a
weak spell, but rallied later with the rest. The
closing was dull at Irregular changes, but the
only important differences is in Hocking
Valley, which is up 154 percent. Total sales
98.000 shares. The following were the closing

Green A Co.'s report on cotton futures says:
“Costs have averaged somewhat lower, and the
market presented a somewhat weary look
during a portion of the day, but after losing
5@6 points, recovered, and closed with a steadier
tone at about last evening’s rates. Fairly full
port receipts and want of strength at Liverpool
were the discouraging features at the outset,
and induced further sales of long cotton, but
finding the supply readily taken up, a re
actionary feeling set in, with the result as
noted. There does not appear to be much
really new business coming in, the movement
being largely of a liquidating character pre
paratory for the holidays.' ’
