light, but later the business expanded Into
much larger proportions. The principal
buying waa by local shorts, although there
was a fair demand by commission houses
' throughout tha day. The mala factor In
'.he market waa the strength of oata, but
Ine continued email receipts In tbo north
. west and an advance of Vio In tha prlca of
I cash wheat at Kaneas City Imparted
T strength to the market. Tha market closed

ume, lntereat centered In tha purchases
by a prominent bull of more than 600,000
bushels. Pear of a corner In the market

WEAKNESS DUE TO FEW LEADERS
Calls for Additional Capital by Rail

of pecalatore Close Is
NEW YORK, Jsn. 17. The dull and heivy
tone which prevailed for most of the day
In the stork market seemed to be due to
the continued weakness in a handtui of
stocks. There whs nothing like the gen
eral weakness which developed yestaid.y
at any time during the day. The general
list moved narrowly throughout. There
waa a dip along the whole line when any
special weakness would develop at aome
special point and an appearance of
resiliency In the Intervals of liquidation in
a few stocks. The hesitating and Incon
stant movement of the market kept senti
ment much confused. During thf cour.ne
of the day's trading a clearer percep.lon
was acquired of the limits of the stilling
and feeling regarding Its signillcanue be
came better defined.
The fact became known today that a
syndicate had been dissolved which under
wrote the last Issue of Erie convertible
bonds. Official details of tne transaction
are lacking, but it was generally believed
that the largest part of the Issue had
proved unreliable and had been distributed
to the members of the syndicate, with some
hasty sales aa a result at wide concession
from the price of the underwriting. Tha
outcome of the underwriting Is a reinforce
ment of the lesson cf other examples snd
Its effect is enhanced by the knowledge
that similar conditions exist In the case
of other syndicates. In order to move the
marxct ror such holdings It seems necessaty
to make large concession In prices. A like
course la Indicated as necessary In the
security overhanging the market to secu-e
new capital to proceed with the great i
largement of railroad facilities which ral.
road authorities seem agreed in considering
essential to cope with the present business
of the country. But the belief gained
ground today that there were special causes
affecting the stocks which suffered most
acutely in yesterday's decline, having to
do more with the speculative' position In
the market than with the financial affairs
of tha companies. Yesterday's sincere In
ference of an Inception of a stork market
struggle between financial Interests gave
place today to an alternative belief that
crippled speculation acts of smaller import
ance were Involved. Aside from these spe
cial Incidents In tha market developments
The reduction In the Bank of Rnrland
rate of discount was a decisive mark of the
relaxed tension of the world s money mar
kets. The weeklv statement nr the Rank
of England showed clearly that the action
of the governors had become necessary to
conserve the volume of business, which Is
a main object of the existence of the bnk.
The Bank of France and the Imperial Bank
of Germany also showed the, reflux move
ment of cash Into bank reserves. In this
market the rate for time loans for all pe
riods yielded to below 8 per cent for the
first time since the recent stringency pre
vailed. The banks continued to gain
heavily from the subtreasury the amount
for the week's statement rtsins- bv todnv a
statement to 88.174.000. The action cf Amal-
gamaiea copper ror several days past has
Indicated the yielding of earlier speculative
hopes of an Increase In the dividend rate.

were abundant and the demand waa fair.
Discounts were easy. Although operators
on the Stock exchange bad discounted the
reduction In the Bank of England's rats
of discount, the announcement, after the
prolonged discussion of the matter, caused
a feeling of relief, while the publication of
the good return resulted in a general Im
provement In values, but business did not
expand materially. Consols and home rails
gained fractionally, but. eased later. For
eigners were firm. Russians hardened to
8 per cent discount. Americans Improved
to well over parity after a dull opening,
the reduction of the Bank of England's
discount rate Inducing bear covering, but
active operations were checked by fears
of renewed liquidation In Wall street. The
New York advices received during the
afternoon were colorless, values dropped
and the market closed dull. Japanese im

liberal this morning, but there wag also
a very fair demand, so that prices were
very well maintained and the general mar
ket without any very noteworthy change.
Beef steers were sought after and the
desirable kinds were juat about steady
snd fairly good sellers at the prevailing
I prices. Common Inferior grades were

rather hard work cleaning up the pens.
Cows and heifers were also In fair de
mand and sold In practioally the same
notches as yesterday. The trade, while
not active, was In fair condition, so that
a considerable proportion of the receipts
changed hands In reasonable season.
Feeders were In good demand, the same
as they have been all the week, and com
manded good strong prices. Among the
offerings were some fleshy feeders good

HOGS Hogs opened 3H43o lower than
yesterday, first bids being generally on the
basis of taS7Vt for average quality, with
now and then 86-40 being offered for the
better loads. Under the influence of the
good demand the market steadily improved
until It was very nearly steady with yes
terday. This makes the averaare market
only a shade lower than yesterday. The
bulk of all the hogs sold at t.37ttrS.42
with 86.40 a very popular price, ths same as
yesterday. There were hogs good enough
to bring 86.60, which was ths top yester
day. Ths trade was fairly active when
once under way, and the early arrivals for
the most part changed handa In good sea
son, everything In fight being sold before
11 o'clock In the morning.
The later trains fared even better than
the early, the market continuing to In
crease In strength so that ths extreme close
waa higher even than yesterday. The last
hogs to arrive sold at 8t 46 and on up to
3 to. or better than any time yesterday.

BHEKP ftherp wers 10c lower this morn
ing. While the demand was very fair
snd the movement reasonably active at
the decline, there was not quite as much
life as noted yesterday. The feeling was
that possibly a chol.-e bunch of lambs
would not show much decline, as there
seemed to be considerable Inquiry for that
kind, but medium lambs and sheep gen
erally could snfely be quoted 10c lower, as
noted above. There were no very choice
lambs to make a top on the market, but
some pretty decent stuff sold at $7.2.1. A
hunch of right good ewes sold ns high ss
3S.20. Some of th same ewes that brought
86 26 yesterday sold at 8S.1S today. There
were wethers guod enough to bring 8.r.flY
Considering the reports from other selling
points were generslly unfavorable, the
market here as a whole wss In fair condi
tion and the big bulk of the arrivals
changed hands In good season.

ROOSTER HOODOO TO FITCH
Fowl Dooms Probate Clerk In Bstla
raatloa ef Fellow Workers at
the Coart Hoase.
Employes of the county judge's office
regard Probate Clerk D. A. Fitch with
suspicion. They declare sadly that, with
his seeming fall, their faith In human na
ture has been killed. Fitch says It Is due
to the hnd of fate. His friends say It Is
due to tha weakness and -frailty of human
nature. The rooster whirth ran amuck In
tha court house and which was captured
by Martin Sugarman and a picked com
pany Tuesday ts the cause of Fitch's
troubles. It was at first supposed that
the bird had been restored to tha farmer
whose property it was. But the men In
the county judge's office, shake theTr heads
and say the bird met another fate.
"That same evening Fitch called up over
the 'phone and ordered some chicken
feed." says John Helgrene, with a judicial
"And he said he would stop for It on
the way home, because he needed it right
away," snys Chief Clerk Sundblad, sol
emnly. . ..
"I had always regarded him heretofore
as an upright young man," says James
Ruane, wiping .' his eyes. "But one can
never tell." .',- , ,
When people enter, the office they are
taken off in a corner, where the sad in
telligence la Imparted to them wflh side
long glances at the - disconcerted Fitch,
who glares at his tormentors forbiddingly.
And the stranger shakes his head and com
presses his lips In sorrow, and with one
look at the unhappy man goes out.
Thus are his fellows working to make
him an outcast, a parish. Fitch wants to
have a committee appointed to search his
premises thoroughly for the missing
rooster, but the others shake their heads
and Intimate that even this would not re
move their doubts.
