NEW TORK. Feb. 1 There was some
further contest to sustain prices In the
stock market todsy which proved success
ful after irregular movements and was fol
lowed by a rally from the low point of
Isst week. There was a renewed show of
strength In some of the stocks, which are
still the subject of rumors of Important
projects yet to be announced and there
was the announcement of the valuable
stock subscription privilege to the pro
posed new issue of Chicago A Northwest
ern stock. These proved sustaining factors
in tne marxet ana neipea to check tne uis
posltion to liquidate, which was running
to extremes in the latter part ot last
The action of the money market gave no
occasion for fears that an active condi
tion was Imminent and there waa some
relaxation from the tension of anxiety on
that subject which depressed the stock
market last week. The tl6.2B7.4K Chicago
Northweatern stock Issue and the action
towards the Issue of n4.000.0oo Delaware ac
Hudson convertible bonds showed that the
notation of new capital was not yet com
pleted. But this rate of Increase com
pared with last week's total of nearly tlati.-
ono.OOO was regarded as a moderating ten-
aency in this process. The rate for call
loans wss appreciably easier today. It was
suggested that some effect might have been
produced py an accumulation of cash by
the trust companies. In view of the con
sultations between trust company and
banking officials over the question of truKt
company reserves. Bueh accumulations
would be available In the call loan mar
ket. There was a hopeful sentiment Prevalent
over the prospects for a settlement of the
labor dispute In the anthracite trsde. Tl:e
extraordinary rate of expansion In gross
earnings of rnllrosds reported for the sec
ond week of February wa of favorable ef
fect on sentiment. The percentage of in
crease over the corresponding week of last
year In the case of the Canadian Pacific
and Denver Rio Grande reached 42 per
cent: uotnsvuie tt Paahvllle. 36 per cent;
Central of Georgia. 14 per cent: lost Cen
tral and Minneapolis & St. Ixiuis, 3n por
cent: Southern railway. 27 per cent; Texas
or r-acinc. ana Missouri. Kansas at Texas
25 per cent, and St. liui Southwestern
22 per cent. Traffic official of railroads
reported the volume of shipments well
maintained and operating conditions not
materially Impaired by last week's stormy
Support of the market w-a manifest at
the opening, but was met by the selling
caused Inevitably bv last week's drop In
prices and the calla for additional mar
gin which went out In consequence. The
support In the market persisted and She
arrest of the decline In Itself lightened the
pressure to sell. An uncovered short In
terest added to the demand for stocks.
Except In a few stocks the strength did
not become aggressive and yielded on a
numncr oi reactions. The market rallied
t tne last, however, and closed firm.

SHEEP Packers sll wanted good fat
sheep this morning, an that tiie market on
that kind opened early and active. Ieir-
anie lots answering to that description
changed hands very readily at what ItHiked
like good steady prices. AS l:lgh as t30
was paid for right good well finished ewea.
with the bulk of the good ewes Belling at
t5.0(if(6.26. The good stuff was limited very
largely to ewes, there being very few de
slrsble wethers or rearlincs.
There was some inquiry for fat laaibs of
gooo quality, but the demand was not as
large as for sheep, with the result thai
the lamb market, even on the good kinds,
was slow. As high as 37. 00 was paid for
lambs on the Mexican order.
While the good srrades 01 fat fcheeD and
lambs sold all right, the common to med
ium Kinds were slow and dull from start
to finish. With these kinds It was simply
a continuation of the conditions
which prevailed all last week. As
has been explained time and again
In these columns, no one seems to
wsnt the unfinished kinds, as It Is still
early In the season and prices are pretty
high for feeder buyers to take hold as
fteely ns they are likelv to do later on.
Quotations for red sheep and lambs are
as follows: Oood to choice lambs, Colo
