NEW TORK. May 2K. The stock market was
Intensely dull today. There was no appreciable
outside demand, and professional traders pre

Cormlck & Co., whoi failure was announced
yesterday. There were not many transactions
under the rule on the exchange today for the
Hrxn's account, but there were indications of
large -transactions in accordance with private
settlements. Thus in the early dealings there
was a sale of a 900-share block of Atchison
preferred, the same house being both the buyer
and seller. There was also a report current
that largo repurchases were made for Chicago
account of blocks of stock sold yesterday for
the failed firm. The Atchison transaction was
explained as being a mere transfer of an ac
count. These operations doubtless represented
the progress of a, settlement of the firm's af
fairs. Tho rricea at which they were sold In

for the greater part of the day at or above
last night's level, in spite of the almost stag

was pointed out that the Invariable result of
such efforts to establish abnormally high prices
is a relapse to abnormally low prices. The dis

was still without rain of the"sort -needed, al
though Winnipeg, Grand Forks and Fargo got
a little moisture, which was sufficient to de
press prices here a bit. Before the news, cf

firm on the Liverpool .steadiness, the dryness
hereinbefore referred to and the damage

ity of traders are inclined to await something
definite, although It is generally believed here
that rain In the Northwest would at least be of
