turpentine again drops. market CLOSES FIRM AT 3*14 CENTS A GALLON. At the Dec'll nt* the Deninnd Wa> Fair. Tlionh Not Enongh to Ab • orli OtTerlng*—Receipts Continue to Play Important Fart in the Market—Cotton Unchanged, With Demand Moderate —Local and Tel egraphic Markets. Morning News Office, Aug. 27. The spirits turpentine market dropped a half cent to-day, at which it was post ed firm, and the demand for stuff fair. The opening at the Board of Trade was quiet at 3G cents, but it was seen the de mand at this figure was light, and that business would be induced only by con cessions. It was understood there was a fair demand at the decline, and that con siderable business was done after the clos ing on that basis, but it was not under stood the offerings were absorbed. The receipts continue to play an important part in depressing the market, and may be a factor for some time to cbme. The rosin market closed quiet and unchanged, with a light demand. % The cotton market closed unchanged, with sales of 287 bales reported at the Cotton Exchange. The futures market advanced from 9 to 11 points. This was due to the early rise, which gave shorts a scare, and brought them Into the mar ket in droves. Not withstanding their eagerness to protect some of their con tracts, prices continued upward, jumping some six points at one time. The whole sale markets remain unchanged. The pro duce markets are steady, with some lines very firm, due to small stock. The fol lowing resume of the different markets will show the tone and quotations at the closing to-day: COTTON. The cotton market closed unchanged to-day, with sales of 287 bales reported. The day’s receipts were 616, against 2,824 last year.

Aug. 27.—The market for cotton futures made insignificant head way to-day and the volume of speculation was unsatisfactory to bulls and bears alike. The public was unusally timid, and though the room trade was bearish ly disposed, few operators cared to come boldly into the open and make a stand either way. The market started steady In tone, with prices 1 point higher to 2 points lower. Inasmuch as the cables no more than filled anticipations and the In formation from the crop country indicat ed no radical change during the Sunday interval here, professionals and commis sion houses alike gave attention to trim ming up minor accounts preparatory to whatever might be In store In the way of news later In the day. A few of the more wary shorts near midday quietly turned for cover, but before they succeed ed In protecting the accounts desired prices Jumped fully 6 points, with the pit in general nervously buying oottor,. Then followed a protracted spell of apathy and minute variations, with the market much of the afternoon narrow and uninterest ing. Near the close another dash of shorts Increased the advance, with the market finally steady, 9 to 11 points net higher. FLUCTTATIONa IN FUTURE*. New York.

New York. Aug. 27.—Murphy Cos. say: Cotton in Liverpool closed l-16d lower on spots. Futures unchanged to l-64d above Saturday’s close. This market opened quiet and without much change in prices, but improved during the first hour of the session on rather general buying end in disposition to sell. Conservative inter ests prefer tjje long side until more is known in regard to the growing crop. Damage reports continue coming in. Cot ton ruled nervous with the tendency up ward on moderate buying. There Is littie disposition to take the bear side until more is known about crop conditions. Georgia and the Carolinas sending hom age reports to market dally on account of excessive heat and no moisture, although there is good demand on basis of 8.34 for January. Trade expecting good Liverpool to-morrow. New York, Aug. 27.—Hubbard Bros. & Cos. say: A reaction which was expected on Saturday brought a sharp rally here, while in Liverpool, where it was expected to be severe, the advance was not equal to expectations. Showers have fallen in the districts where they were needed, es pecially in Arkansas, but continued show ers will be needed throughout the Atlantic and Memphis districts. The local disposi tion is to buy on weak spots as the movement is expected to compare unfavor ably with that of last season, as the crop is late. The idea of the trade is that cot ton can be bought for a turn on these weak points, regardless of crop or trade conditions until more cotton moves to market. DRY GOODS, New York, Aug. 27—Spot business has been good with Jobbers, but indifferent in the primary market. Demand for ail kinds of brown cottons slow and prices ir regular. Bleached goods in about average request at previous prices. No change in denims or other coarse colored goods. Prints and ginghams quiet and unchanged. Print cloths inactive. Woolen and worst ed fabrics dull and barely steady. NAVAL STORES. Monday, Aug. 27. SPIRITS TURPENTINE.—It turned out that the turpentine market had not struck bottom, as was shown by a fur ther decline to-day. The opening was quiet at 36 cents, with no business report ed, and the closing firm at 3514 cents, with sales of 710 casks reported at this price. It was thought the market had steadied, and that further losses were improbable, but this does not seem to have been the case. For a time factors held for a bet ter price than the closing, but late in the afternoon considerable stuff was knocked down at the price. It was un derstood that factors found a fair demand for offerings at 3514 cents. The day’s re ceipts were 1,790, sales 710, and the ex ports 4.129. ROSINS.—The rosin market closed quiet and unchanged, with a light demand for the offerings. Receipts continue liberal, and the outlook is not any’ too encourag ing for the maintenance of prices. There were opening sales of 811 barrels reported, which constituted the day's business. The receipts were 4,608, and the exports 6,- 206. The following were the quotations: A.

STOCKS AND BONDS. The Market Showed n Settling Ten denes', New York, Aug. 27.—There was some disposition to sell stocks to-day and the market showed a settling tendency throughout. Sugar absorbed close to one-fourth of the day’s total dealings and its marked weak ness doubtless had some sympathetic ef fect on the rest of the list. Sentiment was affected also by thp apparent abandon ment of any pool operations for a rise. Unless the weakness of sugar might be called such, there was no urgency in liqui dation. but there was an absence of buy ing demand. The weakness of sugar found no explanation in any news announcement of the deay. Pressure against People's Gas and Brooklyn Transit seemed to be coupled with the movement against sugar in the early dealings and later American Tobacco was forced down, but these stocks except the last, showed a tendency to recover, Brooklyn Transit rising above Saturday’s level. Losses extended to a point or over here and there in other stocks and New Jersey Central fell 2)4. London discounts hardened to-day and, while money conditions in Berlin are for the moment easier, expert authorities af firm that very heavy obligations will have to be met in that market during the com ing month and later. Available funds in New York continue apparently abundant, but the season for the Interior movement of currency is fast approaching. The re curring relief which has been afforded to the New York market by subtreasury op erations for several months past seems to have about come to an end. About $9,- 000,000 of the extended United States 2 per cents still remain to be redeemed, the ma jority of which are on deposit at Wash ington to secure circulation or government deposits. The banks find difficulty in se curing new 2 per cent, bonds to replace these and they are in consequence substi tuting lawful money at Washington and retiring the circulation secured by the called bonds, or are leaving them on de posit in spite of the fact that interest on them has ceased. There remains about $6,- 000,(100 of circulation which has been ap plied for by the banks, hut which has not been issued. Beyond this the banks show no disposition to extend their circulation. The bond market was dull and reac tionary. Total sales, par value, $770,000. United States new 4s advanced % per cent, in the bid price. The total sales of stocks to-day were 200,000. including Atchison, 9.290; Burling ton, 6.415; St. Paul, 8,600;. Union Pacific, 8.025; Tobacco, 11,850; Brooklyn. 27,865; Peo ple's Gas, 9,303; Sugar, 55,650. New York Stock List. Atchison 27 |Union Pac 58 do pref 69Vi| *l° pref '•'% B. & 0 71V4! Wabash 7 Can.
