NEW YORK. Feb. 17. -Only scanty mate
rial for comment could be found In today's
torpid stock market. Speculative Interest
waa more stagnant than at any time since
before the national election.
The few stocks which moved appreciably
from aom special cause were without any
sympathetic effect on the general list,
which drifted Idly backward and forward
on nominal transaction, representing noth
ing more than th tentative effort of th
room trader to scalp a am nil fractional
profit Th bond division atlll offered a
harp contrast to the stagnation f the
toek market, although th volume of trans
action there also fell away from the re
cently prevailing level of rtlvity. Th re
maining doubt over the final outcome of
the Erie financing la partly retrponaible for
whatever check la perceptible In tha bond
market. Dealer report th general condi
tion In that branch of th market excel
lent and designate the sit oat Ion as ap
proaching a famine appetKa for Investment.
The conn It km Is perceptible In the manner
of flotation of new issue more than In
the open market for existing taaue.
Tha expected Chlcaan. Rurlineton a
Qulncy offering which appeared over night
provra to oe iis.nm.utio against previous es
timate of probably 230.000,000 or upward
and th offering was cktaed a Boon aa
opened, previou application having hewn
larger than the total Unua As the allot
ment price of 94 compared with a nHce
above par for bond previously Issued under '
uie same mortgage th prompt rise In the
prlc of the new Issue to a premium over
the Issue price waa not surprising. It be
came xnown also that the New York Cen-
tra had disposed of a block of 84.0uu,000 of
It refunding 8 per cent bond pre
viously authorised without public announce,
ment of offering. These evidences of un
aated Investment demand for bonds proved
ineuecKuai in stimulating any deallnas In
atorka The halt In the trad revival apJ
Ktrma wj- nanny in ertect -oi aoundant
money resources In that department of th
ecu titles market. Th content of the an
imal report of the Preesed Steel Car com
pany and the unfavorable views exnreiuuvl
by It president over railroad prospects kept
aiitrniion uxea on tne suDject loaay.
Another reduction In copper quotation
her and In London wa a contributory
factor. The gloomy feellnr In the eteel
trade was deepened by reiterated report of
a coming cut in price. Thl la quite directly
effective In speculative sentiment D slock
oeiiing marcn a tne date Inr the calling
of th -extra session gav renewed vlvnr
to the diitcusalon of the coming new tariff
mw na tne reports of the probable diverg
encies of view in a prominent political
party which may Drolona- the settlement
of th new schedule. As no effective trad
revival 1 looked for until the schedule
re determined this possibility of delav waa
oi coining mrtuenc on tne Speculative
spirit. The tariff question and Its uncer
tainties wa a neutralising force to the
coming Inauguration of the new president,
who haa been looked forward to a a noa-
ibl stimulant of the stock market such a
ine movemoer election proved to be.
-Published reports of the program being
followed by E. H. Harrlman to build up
hla health had th effect of arousln some
misgivings on tht subject. nA early rise in
Atchison wa aaaoclated with rumors of a
coming increase m dividend. The banks
are surrendering government deposits to
the subtreasury In advance of the date
fixed In the call, which name February 26
th period for compliance. Monev rate
are unaffected. The declining Interest rate
ar common to all the world great monev
centera and thla wa coincident today with
universal dullness on stock markets.

oot for the later market. Th result Waa
that th demand wa quit good for all de
irahl kinds, and whli the trad coald
hardly be called actlv atlll there wa- '
vriy inn imivrmcnt ana in most ot-the)
oiferings changed hands In rood season.
I'nfortunately th quality wa not verv
good, ther being a considerable showing
of trash which wa not sought after and
which waa very much Inclined to drag.
Th feeling on the undesirable kinds with
receipt so larg would natarally be a little
weak. On the other hand th prices paid
for desirable killer did not rtow any mav
aterial change aa compared with yester
day, the market being generally quoted as
