NEW YORK STOCKS AND BONDS
Market it Sail and Volume of
VALUES ADVANCE SLIGHTLY
leatkera Railroad (iroia Adraaece
oa Ramor of Merger of Sereral
Properties Boade Arc
NEW YORK. Feb. 23 Healings In stocks
today were scarcely larger than yesterday.
The thinness of the market was aa marked
on the selling side as on the buylnaj side
and It required but a small absorption to
lift prices. The timidity of the bears Is
aggravated bv such a demonstration as
that of last week In Reading and that of
today In the) southern group of railroad
Today's movement lacked authoritative
explanation. A supposition naturally arose
that some financial project was working
out designed to change the relation be
tween these properties, already very close
by reason of the control of Louisville
Nashville held by the Atlantlo Coast line
and a mutual control of other properties
held by Louisville A Nashville and South
ern Railway. Until the movement In these
stocks stimulated some vitality In the rest
of the market It was practically lifeless.
An early attempt to depress prices met
with little success, and this as much as
any definite news of conditions, prompted
the later upward movement. The quieting
down of affairs In Philadelphia was ac
cented as good news.
The abstract of the reports to the comp
troller of the currency of the national
banks of the country on January 31 showed
the loan expansion alnoe the November 16
report well distributed, the New York
banks being responsible for less than $1S
OuO.OuO of the $oO,716,Si aggregate Increase
for that period. The stock market liquida
tion effected In that interval explatna this
relative showing. In the yearly comparison,
however, there Is shown an Increase since
February 6 last of $SX8.736.(7 In the loan
account of the natlona: banks, the cash
reserves having shrunk in the same time
over $27,000,000. The credit condition Is, In
consequence, still considerably extended, In
spite of the substantial deflation which
has occurred In the stock market.
Bonds were steady. Dealers reported an
Improved demand for bonds. Total sales,,
par value, $2,692,000. United Statea 2, 3s
coupon and 4s advanced H per cent on call.

CAT'iLE Rtlpts Ot cattle were lsrgn
this morning for a Thursday and as'buy
era all had quite a good many cattle on
hand the demand was not aa urgent as It
was yesterday, and tha day before. At tha
same time early advices from other market
points were not .at alj encouraging. Thus
It happened that the market was a little
slow and backward about, getting started.
This condition: was made more so by the
late arrival of biany. .of the trains. ,
Feeders were tl. .first cattle to sell.
The offerings of the desirable kinds of
fleshy steers Were .very moderate and buy
ers were not long In picking up everytning
of that description -at - good firm prices.
Medium grade of cattle were as a general
thing steady, .but common light atonkera
Were slow and lower, aa noted yaalarday.
It would be entirely safe to quota these
th'r. yearlings - as fully 107115c lower than
the early part; df . the week.

take advantage of 'the large receipts to
secure some eohceevslon from yesterday's
extremely high prices. Skill they wanted

HOGS The situation in tha hog yards
was doubly bearish at tho opening this
morning. Eajiern advices were- more or
less discouraging and a llbrraJ estimate at
this point gave promts of lower prices
all along tha line. Packers stayed out of
the alleys until well along In the morn
ing and when they finally did appear, oft.
ters ranged all the , way from a nickel to
a dime lower than yeeuvrday's general
trade. Very few load were aold on this
basis, however)-and It was some time be
fore enough bukUieasV had been don to af
ford a broad view of the market aa
whole. Shipping demand waa la trie ac
tive during first rounds, but the bulk of
outside orders called fur light hogs, about
iiiiorn or iwenir loses 01 light shipping
selling at quotably steady figures.
Aa the morning advanced It beoama ap
parent that salesmen would el 'her have to
accept the lower offers of "lock their
hogs up" till the morrow. As a result, sup
piles began to move at prleea just about
d toe lower than yeaatarday's averar. mavr

SHEEP Yesterday's live mutton trad
ended In a carnival of high prices. A good
portion ot tho receipts did not arrive until
v. ell along in the atternoon and at that
time packets made no secret of their
wants, but bought up everything quickly
at unevenly higner figures. Mexican yeai
llngs sold a high as is, 10, and native
ewea topped at $7.20. Both of these prices
ar the highest paid at this point In th
history of tha trade. Native limni
readied $20, which figure ts within loe
cf last May's record top, tft.35.
The same healthy tone featured today's
trade. Supply was again light and the
delayed arrival of several trains found
only four or five loads on hand tor first
rounds. Demand waa still urgent and pens
wre promptly cleared at good, ationg
prioea. Weetern yearlingrs sold on a her
with yesterday's top Mexicans, $8 25, snii
ewes changed hands al'$.W and $7.00.
There, was nothing of consequence received
early In the way of I am ha.
It la almost unnecessary to say that the
weeet'a trade thus far has "been highly fav
orable to sellers. Receipts have been lim
ited, and packers have been clamorous for
good kinds ot killers.' sheep, especially.
Finished grades of ewes, wethers and
yearling are easily Kc higher than last

WASHINGTON. Feb. M.-Whatver way
the supreme tHwrt Of th United Plates de
cides tha case up for argument before It
today, Involving the right of -forwarding
agencies' t carload rates on Interstate
shipments of freight owned by Individual
shippers dire results will follow, If all that
the counsel In the three-cornered fight say
"W submit that the all-Important provi
sions of the act to regulat commerce will
be seriously Impaired If forwarding agents
Lare permitted to Intervene and control tha
less than carload portion of the railroad
"It la economically Inexpedient from th
public standpoint to develop a class of In
tercepting carriers in this country."
The two statements quoted wer those)
that counsel for the Delaware, Lacka
wapna A Vfestern Railroad company, the
Wabash Railroad company, tha New Tork,
Chicago A St. Louis Railroad company and
the Baltimore A Ohio Railroad company
wont Into court to substantiate.
"To say that they (Interstate railroads)
as publlo servants may create conditions
which make the business of assembling
goods In carload lots very profitable and
then restrict to themaelvee and those 'they
see fit to favor the right to participate in
profits thus obtained is equivalent to say
ing they may take advantage of their own
wrong." ' ! - ' . - .
That Is the way Wade It. Ellis, assistant
to the attorney general views the attempt
of the railroads north of the Ohio river
and east of the Mississippi to deny carload
rates to forwarding agencies. Mr. Ellis Is
participating In the case In defense of
the order Issued by the Interstate Com

of the forwarding companies would be to

I sat In th president's chair today,
When the senate was drowsy and thin,
And a nice young chap was prating away
Who had never had hair on his chin.
A bright little, fellow by name of Brown,
wno should ds

The A B CI of tha great constitution.
I've been chased by the Yanks and have

And have writhed In my bed from terrible
