The Day In AVnll Street.

to ( lie ll.i.j ! Thn sentiment In regard to
Blocks to-day was unmistakably bearish.
While the passage of the inter-state coins
rncrco bill had all along been regarded a
certain , It vvns argued that It would Increase
( ho feeling of distrust abroad In regard to
American securities. London was main a
heavj seller and prices on London exchange
weak and lower. It was claimed tlmt a gen
eral selling movement had been started
which would send a rood many moro stocics
to this country. The political situation was
considered as critical , and a good ninny war
minors were circulated. In the face of con
ditions adverse to n bull maiket bujors held
aloof and tl > o beats prcsscdCthclr mivnntngo ,
Belling the w hole list off more or less. Hock
ing Valley continued to break on the tall
over Issue of securities and the report that
shows the Hnntlngton party had secured
contiol of the property. From tlio capi
tals of various western Elates whoso
legislatures aio now In session
ramo reports of expected leclslatlon ndverso
to railroad interests. Coal slocks did not
break much nnd on every slump the buying
wns vood enough to rnllv prices. Cliqucd
storks , like Wow J nghind. Jersuy Central ,
nnd Heading , were well supported , nnd points
wcie out that ns soon ns the character of tlio
general maikct impiovcd these stocks would
1m civ en n sharp turn mm aid. 'Iho bank
fltatetncnt , Miovvlni ; a HID ill Increase in the
reserve , was construed as lavorablc , ospeciallj'
na money was plenty and rates very low.
Contraiyto cxix ctations , Ilieio was no rally
at the close. Tlio bulls niade no cllort to
sustain prices except In New Kndand , Jer
sey Cential , and Heading , all of which were
active nnd well held nt about the ton prices
of tlio dav. 'Ihu rest of Iho list dracgcd
dow n steadily and closed at about the lowest
prices of the d.iy. The total sales weio about shares.
Two Opposite ) Opinions.
Nr.w Yon , Jnn. ! . [ Special Telegram to
the Hr.r.J On the subject of the passage of
tlio Intcr-stntn commerce bill , Henry Clews
said : "Tho bill must now bo accepted ns
law , for It Is certain of the executive signa
ture , Doing undoubtedly a popular measure
with the multitude , nlthottch It Is not so with
the Intur-stato railroads. It cannot fall to bo
injurious to the workings ol these corpora
tions , as Its effect is to dlseust and dlsorpan-
1/u methods of business. Under the law
which It provides foi they will bo compelled
to advance their through rates In proportion
f to their local charges. This will matcilally
dwarf that class of business. Stocks of rall- ntloctcd by thu new law must become
less valuable , as they will suffer by tlio Injury
to business ot those loads. There has been
lorsuveial dajs past considerable liquidation
of stocks owlni ; to fear ot tiio passage of tills
bill , and this liquidation is likely to con
tinue for some claj-s , especially from London
holders. "
I'lio Tribune , In Its financial article , speak
ing of tlio Inter-state commerce bill , says :
The largo vote by whlcli tlio bill passed the
homo onconraKeu the 'bears' to sell stocks
Indfscriminatelv.biit there nio no Indications
that the real holders of securities nro In thu
least disturbed. It Is an axiom that Iho rail-
xvay Interest ot thoconntiy , which Is widely
distributed , and wlilch , tliioiiKh the agency
ot savings' banks , penetrates every Amcii-
can household which ho.s sivings laid aside ,
can not bo disturbed without the Inllictlon ol
a greater sncrllico to eveiy commercial , mer
cantile and indiistilal Inteiest in the coun
try. It is for this icason that both largo and
small holdciB of secmltle.s aio complacent
und satittlled with the situation. Thu'bears'
sell stocjw freely and , as limy have done sev
eral times before , mark lower quotations.
Hut neither their free offerings 1101 the losde
of events and circumstances as jet have
brought out any real ceitlhVates of stock.
"We make no predictions , but there is noth
ing visible which warrants thu belief that the
ipstdtot to-daj-'s laid on values will bo any
tllffcicnt from those of the numerous as
saults which have been made upon the
maikct since Ihu middle of last Deceuibci. "

NEW Yonrc , JMI. 23. ISpoclM Tolcgrara
to the BKE.J A friend of Dr. Mrllbnn was
Interviewed this atternoon In rojard to the
olfoct of Archbishop Corrlgan's letter upon
the followers of the former pastor ot SI. Ste
phens. lie said : "Tho friends ot Dr. Mc
Ulynn are not disturbed by the statement ot
Archbishop They flald that hM
grace has , with seeming unfairness , loft out
all that part of the correspondence between
him nnd Father McUlynn which showed In
favor of the priest. In the letter of Decem
ber 20 , quoted by his grace as a Hat ot
the priest to po to Home , It Is said that Me-
Ulynn gave Imperative personal nnd family
reasons why ho should not go , nnd that
whatlsBlvenasabolddollancoof the arch
bishop was really but a plain statement ot
Kathor McUlynn's position , which ns ha
could not go to Uomo himself , ho expected
the archbishop , with whom ho had had
nil the discussion with the holy sec ,
to send to Kome. He Intended It ns a writ
ten Instead of a personal nnd veibal state
ment of his case to the holy pee. The nrrh-
bishop knew that to give publicity to the
leason clven by Father McOlvnii would dN-
tress botli the lather nnd his Inmllv. Instead
of sajlng that tlio elauso quoted followed
after thu reasons of the priest for not going
to Homo his grace quotes boldly : 'I will not
gotoltouip. I have taught the uoctrlnn ot
common property In land nnd 1 will 00111111110
sototeacli. ' without a woid of explanation
or Intimation of the piecedlng portions of
tlio letter , which was sent as an excuse by
tno nilvleo of Dr. Shrady , who now declares
tint Dr. Metihnn'fl health was so bad for the
past six months that an ocean toy.auo would
seriously endanger his future usefulness.
McCilynn will write a ici ly ns soon as ho H
well ; enough , and It will be a vei liable bomb
In the court of Ids tnicr.1 The im-hblshop
will piv no attention to the challenge of
Henry Ueorge. Ho sajs ho has already
