Question of Control of the Northern
Pacific Still in Doubt Bar-gaia-Hnnters
on the ' v
NEW YORK, May 10 "Wall street
emerged from Its gloom this morning and
with growing confidence In the day man
ifested something like buoyant elation.
Prices of stocks- went up with a rush, at
the last closing at about the top and
with the net losses left after yesterday's
session pretty largely recovered. There
were some clouds remaining on the situ
ation thiB morning and some natural trepi
dation lest the violent collapse of yester
day should have some casualties which
would not be disclosed until, the clearing
house sheets of the Stock -Exchange had
been made up. Early 4n the day the
official announcement, was made that the
sheets of all the members of the ex
change had been cleared perfectly and
that all the checks had been honored.
This relieved the last feeling of apprehn
sion, and the feverish and earnest signs
which were manifest in the stock market
during the first hour disappeared. Things
Tquited down Into a Bteady condition of
business, such as has not been 'Witnessed
In "Wall street for many weeks.
The measures taken over night to clear
the situation left little to hear. The
agreement to allow the shorts In North
ern .Pacific to settle at 160 really went
to the root of the crisis and wiped out
the impelling cause of yesterday's panic.,
The announcement by the banks that yes
terday's loans, which had been provided
by-agreement among the leading institu
tions of the street, would not be called toT
day, kept the situation free from addi
"With -threatening conditions removed, a
rebound in prices was natural and In
evidence. The extent to which ltran
was, however, a surprise and Was at
tributed to various causes. There is -no
doubt that among those who were heavy
losers in yesterday's slump were many
of ample resources who viewed the situ
ation with a sporting instinct and a de
termination to recoup by following the
market. It was the popular belief that
some of the "Western potentates, who were
admittedly forced to "walk sideways"
during a portion of yesterday's events,
were again in the market this afternoon
in a bold attemDt toretrieve their losses.

settlement -with the. shores tt i& brought
"almost no stock upon thafs&arket. - But
gTltTBevraSnTBiat-the contesting parties
in Nortnern iacinc are not yet preparea
to let go of a single available share or
the stopk. The settlement with the shorts
progressed today, at the offices both tf
Kuhn, Loeb & Co. and J. P. Morgan &
Co., and it is probable that only the
completion of the settlement will reveal
how much of the purchases of stock made
by the 'two parties within the last week
can be delivered.
Bargrain-Hnnters on Hand.
The bargain-hunters were also on hahd
in Wall street today, although their oper
ations fell away as the recovery in prices
progressed. During the morning, however,
a large number of transactions were re
corded for cash, both ln stocks and bonds,
which is the manjner in which the bargain
hunter usually pays for his purchases.
There Is a belief ln the street that this
panic was made unnecessarily violent by
the excitement of some of the newer
members of the Stock Exchange, many
of "Whom are very young men. It is
supposed that some of these made undue
sacrifices In the chaotic conditions Thurs
day. There was some buying back 'of
stocks by these sources, and also by those
who got out In time early in the week
and wanted to get back. Tomorrow's im
pending holiday, it was felt, Insured a
period for calm reflection which must tend
to clear the situation still further. There
was also some manipulation of prices for
the relief of those whose borrowing had,
been largely impaired by the shrinking 4n
collateral values. Some of ,this manipu
lation was also witn tne view or tne oene
flt of the London market, where there is
a periodical settlement on Monday, which
Is much dreaded by the English operators
in America, owing to the heavy declines
since the last settlement which will have
,to be made good.
Some of the more notable of the day's
advances were: Union Pacific, 22; St.
Paul and Lackawanna, 1S& each; Con
solidated Gas, 16; Burlington and Amalga.
mated Copper, 12; International Power,
11; Baltimore & Ohio, 11; St. Louis
Southwestern preferred, 1014; Sugar, Dela
ware & Hudson and General Electric, 10
This represents a rapid rate of recovery
from the exceedingly low prices Thursday,
which had already been largely recov
ered In the violent rebound of the late
trading on the exchange. There was an
obvious disposition to hail this as a re
vival of the boom on the part of some
more sanguine of the speculative bull ele
ment. But after the week's experience of
the severe penalties of over-speculation, a
renewal of the" same was strongly depre
cated. That the wounds caused by such
a collapse as that of Thursday are not to
be healed in a day Is patent. The condl.
tlon of the banks after jesterday's
emergency measures will want to be
gauged before adequate judgment can be
passed upon the outlook.
It Is a remarkable fact that the un
precedented violence of Thursday's upset
should have resulted In not a single fail
ure on the Stock Exchange.
Heavy Bnylnff by Syndicate.
The commission houses generally were
averse to accepting much new business to.
day. About one-third of the commission
houses would only take buying orders
from cutomers who could pay for them In
full and others required so excessive mar
gins as to restrict trading greatly. The
heaviest buyers came from the syndicates
that have been active in arranging deals
for the absorption of other properties.
These Interests seemed to regard the de
velopments yesterday as the most favor
able thing that could have happened for
the carrying out of their plans and accu
mulation of stocks by them was resumed
on a large scale during the day. This

On the other hand, the deals of the men
who are credited with losing in the re

by their friends and the unlucky ones or
alleged unfortunates are speedily learning
that the best thing they can do under
the circumstances is merely to laugh at
the reports without protesting too much
and too long that misfortune has passed
The very fact that there will be no trad
ing until next Monday morning, it Is said,
gives the leaders in the stock market, men
like Hill, Harriman, Vanderbilt, Morgan,
Rockefeller and Stlllman, time to compare
notes and exchange views. '
Control ot Nortberi Pacific.
It is noticeable that discussion tonight
centers upon the question of control of
the Northern; Pacific So far as actual
control is concerned, the impression is
gaining ground that it will be the party
with the most money tuat will acquire it.
Many of the dally papers and some of the
financial papers today expressed the belief
-that control of the Northern Pacific was
still vested ln the Morgan-Hill party. On
the other hand, one of the leading papers
of the city and some of the financial or
gans of the street still express the opin
ion that the Harriman party is ln control.
One thing seems settled tonight, and that
Is that Kuhn, Loeb & Co. do not yet ad
mit defeat. Late today, Otto H Kuhn,
of the firm, did not hesitate to
say: "We believe we have control."
J. J. Hill, on the other hand, however, was
quite as decisive In reiterating his pre
vious statements that "the control Has
not changed." As a matter of fact, there
seems to be no reason for doubting that
both interests have control, so far as
stock in thlr possession, plus contracts
for delivery are concerned, but which in

After expressing his gratitude for the re- Jien5-?;
ceptlon accorded him and commenting on
the cosmopolitan character of the as
sembly, the President said: -
"My Fellow Citizens: What a splendid
civilization comes out of the old states
and from the old nationalities that are
represented here today, the best civiliza
tion in the world, a civilization based upon
liberty, upon equality, upon self-government,
a civilization that leads wherever
It goes, whether here or in the distant
seas, and wherever this civilization goes,
It carries the ark of freedom. Our lib
erty, our freedom, our sense of justice
are not extinguished in any clime, globe
or land, and here, facing the Pacific, I
am reminded that this ark of liberty has
moved out into this great ocean."
Referring to the Spanish War, he con
tinued: "As the result of that-war we are in
the Philippines, and we do not mean to
come away (great applause), and we mean
to give to these distant peoples ""what we
gave to California more than 50 years ago,
the blessings of security and liberty."
An unusual Incident occurred during
the President's stay at Santa Barbara.
The residence of the Chief of the Fire
Brigade caught fire. The Fire Chief, who
was on .the street awaiting the coming of
the President, was informed that his
house was ln Jiames.
"Let it burn," he replied. "I will wait
and see the President. I can build another
house, but I may never have another op
portunity to see the President of the
United States," and he stoically remained
while his house burned to the ground.
"I saw the President," said he when in
formed that his house was ln ruins. "I
saved the lot, anyway."
