NEW YORK, Jan. 1.-The stock market
todsy fell Into a neglect so profound as to
resemble stagnation. Tho professional
traders on the floor of the stock exchange
apparently had the market to themselves
and their efforts to move prices met with
so nine suoccs that they practically
abandoned them and left the market In Its
dull and uninteresting state the latter part
of the session.
The technical position of the market wa
called good In that tho floating supply of
siuckb seamen to on small ana com
paratively light, buying orders brought
marked result .In the rrlce movement.
This fact, however, seemed to offer small
encouragement to the pursuit of any
extensive operations. There were eicen-
lltm In separate stocks, mostly of the class
of smaller railroad systems. Conjecture
continued busy with the possible disposition
or inese systems in the proces of con
eoiidatlnns Indicated by the cues of the
Colorado Southern and the wnsconsln
i entrai. The Kansas Cltv Southern was
pointed to aa a projected link in the Harrl
man system by traffic agreement. The
( ndpeakd ft Ohio was Indicated ss en
gaged In consolidating its own system by
rurcnase or a controlled link and wa
favorably affected. The supposition, that
F.. H. Harrlman is to assume closer rela
tions to the New Tork Central continue
strong In speculative quarters and that
element looks for developments In that
direction at tomorrow's meeting of di
rectors. Some strengthening Influence of a more
sentimental kind wns due to report of an
Intended movement among the Insurance
companies to secure a modification of the
law calling for the sale of stockholdings
in the tr)asiirles of these companies within
a stated period. This possible liquidation
has hung over the market for two years
past with depressing effect on a number of
railroad stocks. One Influence of repression
on the speculation especially in foreign
markets 1s the attitude of walling on the
Russian loan Issue In Paris on Friday. The
pressure for gold at Paris relaxed slightly
today and 'sterling exchange advanced
stiarnlv there with, a corresponding re
laxation In the private discount rate n
London. There was a small engMre'merft of
gold hero for shipment 'o South America,
but none of for transaltantto points. Thai

LONDON, Jan. ID. WOOL There was a
large attendance at th opening of tha 1909
wool auction sales here today. A good
selection of 10,483 bale brought out active
bidding especially from home traders, who
wanted crossbred, and continental buyers,
who took merino. The American present
bought croasbreds, but hnslttUed when
merino were offered. Merinos and fine
crosHbreds were unchanged to 6 per cent J
higher and medium and coarse crosshrctls
advanced from 6 to 7Vi per cent. Cape of
Gtod Hope and Natal grades were un
changed. Following are the sales in detail:

CATTLE Receipts were rather smaller
than dealers were anticipating, and Uie.
proportion of well-finished cattle waa
larger than it has been of late.
The market was very alow In opening.
Both local packers aud outside buyer
showed a marked preference for the light
11 nd cheap cattle, buying these at Steady
u strong price. On the other hand they
were all more or less Indifferent and bear
ish on the well finished and heavy cattle
and bids were mostly VWl&c lower than
yesterday, a very small number changing
hands at, theae figures up until noon.
There was a good Inquiry from all
source foi the desirable grade of butcher
and beef stock and price were unevenly
higher all along the line. Keen competi
tion from outside butchers made price
considerably higher for the heavy and fat
grade and in many cases aa much aa 164,
26o higher than lat week. On the other
havnd medium and common stuff found no
better outlet than Inst week and price for
the most part were In about the same
notches as at that time.
There wa a very good demand for
stockers and feeders, but the supply wa
limited. Competition with packets for the
fleahv trades made prices decidedly strong.
while the lighter grades did not show so
much Improvement, but generally sold
freelv at steady prices.
