ooo $1,000 FIRST MORTGAGE BY E. W. HARDEN. New York. Feb.

0. Special. Professionals ruled today's stock market. The public was not in the market for securities and commission houses reported the smallest demand today for stocks for investment purposes of any day since the advance bc-an last week. As a result the market was irregular and, compared with previous days' transactions, there was little activity.

Total sales today were only a little in excess of 400,000 shares. One reason for the lethargy displayed was the fact that the Stock Kxchange will be closed over Monday because of Lincoln's birthday, and traders displayed an unwillingness to carry stocks over three days in the present state of the market. The news from south Africa was not of a reassuring character, and added to this tfcfcre was considerable selling of stocks by arbitrage houses. Early London cables were strong, but before the opening of the market there was a sharp decline in London prices, which the street accepted as proof that bad news from the seat of war had become known there which had not been made public. The subsequent report that the Rothschilds had news of the relief of Lady-smith was not sufficient to counteract the bad impression resulting from the selling for foreign account.

The decline in the quotations for many of the stocks traded in by Iondon had the effect of stopping the sales through arbitrage houses. Only of the "Western Union's authorized bond issue of is to be put out in the near future. A syndicate composed of Kuhn. Loeh Farson. Iach and other bond houses has bought $10,000,000 of the bonds, to be taken as issued by the company.

Farson, Leach Co. have placed large Part cf the bonds they have purchased in Chicago. The bonds are to retire outstanding Issues as they fall due. The directors decided to provide in a single issue for all the honds the company is likely to be called upon to nut out in the next ten years rather than to Issue those needed in the next two years, and to follow these with another issue. Sugar was again hammered in today's market.

Under persistent selling, in part credited to Consolidated Exchange houses, quotations declined from 112 to though there was a subsequent recovery to a close at HO'i. Compared with yesterday there was a loss of points. There continued to be stories in Wall street of the directors having determined to cut the dividend rate in two. even if it should not be reduced below those figures. Directors of the company say no announcement will be made as to the dividend until it is declared.

No discussion as to the probable rate has been had by members of the board, according to President Havemeyer. Gold shipments from the United States to London are a probability of the near future, in the opinion of the President of one of the principal banks in New York. The banker said today he had advices that a big war loan had been decided 130(100 So 4s.83&83 200O0 St M-O cons 135 120O0 Chi: Terml 4s 4000 ColMid 1st 4s 72m 000 do 2 4s. 15UOO Colo So 84 1 JOO C-St gm 4s 9 3000 B-Q con 7sl12 WHK do IllDiv3slo4 7i0 C-CoalCo IstlOft 3lo0 M-M LG. 22 121100 Erie 1st con 4 90 150000 do gen 3000 V-G 1st 7 10o 4000 Ft W- 1st 71 11O00 H-Sa lst.lir2 1ixm H-H Ist5sl04 2iMK) Ga Pac 121 10O0 H-TC gm 4s 80 8000 1 I-I 1st 109 F1O0O Int Paper fisloti KhkW 111 4s 1952L 104 50O0 P-G 1st 72 4iK) K-O 1st 119 5000 E-St'LUst con 5s B9 10000 LVal Terml.

but closed at 101 on the news of General Macdonald's retirement, it being apprehended that his reinforcements had been intercepted. Paris was disturbed by the report from Boer sources that General Puller had again been driven across the Tugela. The continued talk of mutiny of the Egyptian forces also caused an uneasy feeling, and wild hints were current today that the Eighth Army Division had been sent to Egypt Instead of to south Africa. Not one of these rumors was confirmed in any way. Americans were steady till after noon, when London sola freely in the midst of the general unrest.

New York took Erie first preferred, leaving the rest of the list alone. Grand Trunks were an exception, being boomed on the surprising dividend. The bank bought f31.000 gold in bars. Money was scarcer than it has been, but for bills there was only small application. Silver closed i 27' on Indian Eastern buying.

LONDON. Feb. 9. The market for American securities fluctuated somewhat after a steady opening, and then declined. Grand Trunk securities, however, were especially active, and advanced on the announcement of a dividend.

In his prospectus Mr Jiltn says the business Is the manufacture of teamleiS steal tubes. The company is enabled to take a solid steel billet and draw it Into a hollow neamless tube of any shape and dimensions up to four Inches in diameter. Mr. Lowdcn Statement. Mr.

Ixiwden says: The government requires this form of tubing in all its marine construction, the railroads are using il largely and Increasingly for locomotive boiler tubing, it is essential in bicycles, and is used in many other forms. There Is no conflict, as I understand it, between the troduct of this company and the product of the National Tube company. The business proved profitable from the first and has steadily grown until the, assets of the new Fhelhy Steel Tube company will be in excess of This does not include good will nor the 1'nfnta and secret processes, though th owners of plants believe that their patents and a number of their secret processes are the most valuable a.seta.

"The Albany Manufacturing company of Albany, absorbed In Lackner, Butz Miller have been associated with me In the organization of this company. It is believed that if one of the old companies with average net assets of about SUTxMMsj earned $.157. uoo a year, on an average, for the last five or more than enough to pay dividends on the entire preferred stock of the new company, the new company, ith between five and six times as larse a capital, ought to make substantial earnings upon the common stock. The intention of the organizers of the company has been: First To have the preferred stock represented dollar for dollar by tangible assets, and. as has been poiiifnl out, this has been exceeded by several hundred thousand dollars.

Second To permit the common stock only fairly to represent the good will, patents, and secret processes. It is believed that this purpose also is accomplished." The subscription lists were closed on Jan. 20. applications having been received for the full amount. Tne general offices of the company are at Cleveland now.

There is a possibility that they may be removed to Chicago, but nothing has been determined on that point. nk Statement Forecast. Indications are that the New York bank statement today will be unfavorable.

The forecast sent cut front New York last evening said that time money was firmer in tone and that the larger lenders were requiring 4 per cent as the minimum, as against per cent the day before. The forecast said: The known movements of money have he-run to reflect the renewal of absorptions of money by New York Subtreasury, and. although local banks started the week with a credit of SiouO.ooO im account of the payment of government interest Feb. 1.

Co EARNINGS. Statements issued by Messrs. Haskins Sells, Certified Public Accountants, for the year ended June 30, l89g, show that the Companies now myted earned, in the aggregate, while independently operated, $266,882.21 in excess of all fixed charges, including the interest on $23,000,000 of 4 per cent bonds; and also that the St. Louis Transit Company for the six months ended December 31, 1809, showed a surplus of $188,346.21 over fixed charges, including the interest on this issue of bonds. A large amount of work in the consolidation of power, and the transformation of cable to electric traction, is now under way, but until its completion the full benefit of the economies resulting therefrom will not appear in the net earnings.

In this connection reference is made to the estimate of Mr. Jilson J. Coleman, a street-railway expert of experience, now General Manager of the Company, made before he became connected therewith, and to his letter of recent date, as to the future net earnings of the United Railways Company, after making allowance for the economies following consolidation and the con centration of management. Prospectus containing the above can be had on application. LEASE.

The St. Louis Transit Company, lessee of the United Railways Company of St. Louis and guarantor of the interest upon its Bonds and Preferred Sock, is a Corporation of 40O llo 110 Erie Accounts of corporations, firm and Individuals are solicited, and will received upon the most favorable terms consistent with conservative banking.
