MANY BILLS POUR IN
Fear of Further Gold Exports
A SHARP BREAK IK RATES
Western Railroads Strong: on Good
Crop Prospects, but the General
Movement In Stocks Contin
ues Uneven and Listless.
NEW TORK, Aug. 14.-Todays dealings In
stocks were larger than those of yesterday,
and more of the usual market leaders were
conspicuous in tho trading. But the market
remained uneven, and the r.peclal features of
strength did not have news to explain them
veyona xno reported activity of speculative
pools. Tho Gould stocks continued to be well
looked after, Texas Pacific and Missouri Pa-
cinc Deins very largely dealt In, but the lcad
erthlp of the market Was assumrvl tiv Knnth
era Pacific, In which tho dealings wen more
than twice as great as In any other stock. Tho
Argument advanced for the rise was that the
market leader, who has made a "favorite of
tnis EtocK ror some time, is about to embark
from foreign shores for home. Rock Island
was marked up 394 and "Louisville & Nashville
advanced 2 points on account of the meeting
of tho directors today, and the expectation
mai some steps might be taken toward com
pletlng the transfer of the comDanr to the
now interests in control. A number of minor
rauroaa stocks available for possible absorption
were strong reatures. The grangers and Pa
cifies generally were affected In sympathy,
but the dealings wero on a small scale.
.in me jnaustnai list Sugar made a con
spicuous upward movement without explana
tion, and the express stocks continued -to move
widely, in spite of official denials of reports of
a merger. Amalgamated Copper, People's Gas
and Brooklyn Transit were conspicuously
heavy all day. The brilliant prospects for the
country's .crops were the underlying influence
in tne strength of Western railroad stocks.
But tho most Important development of the
day was the abundant supply of foreign ex
change bills, which appeared in the market,
causing a sharp break in rates, and remov
ing all apprehension of further gold exports
for the present. The present state of the ex
change market Is highly abnormal, owing to
the large falling off In our exports during the
last few months, which upset the calculations
of large previous borrowers abroad, and neces
sitated the renewal of their recently maturing
loan. But It must be borne in mind that the
foreign trade balance in our favor, although
less than expected, is nevertheless accumulat
ing, with the promise oS notable Increases as
soon as the. crops begin to movo out. There Is
no probability in glght -for a change In the
course of things, so that borrowings abroad
to discount It art effected with comparative
ease. The listing of a Russian Government
bond on the New York Stock Exchange marks
a departure," which, it is hoped, will developd
into a regular market for foreign government
securities. The fact that the step was due to
the Initiative of the Russian authorities them
selves may be accepted as a recognition of the
crowing Importance of New York as a supply
Tho bond market was dull but steady. To

Pressure. Is Pnt on After a. Good
Rally and Prices Are Car
CHICAGO, Aug. 14. Wheat opened weak be
cause the bad weather predicted yesterday for
the Northwest harvests did not materialize.
Cables also were Indifferent, though later they
dipped. With unbroken fair weather, and the
continued heavy movement of Winter wheat,
the bears could see nothlntr but lower prices.
This started a heavy selling movement, and
tne crowd thought the leading bull was re
ceding from his position. After the prellml
hary breaks. Influential buying, evidently for
manipulators, started a good rally. Contract
stocks were small and grading was poor. Tho
big bull with nearly 7,000.000 bushels of Sep
tember was feared. Talk was to the effect
that an effort was to be made to control the
cash market, hold to the line, and eventually
take all the September long stuff. Insiders said
this was & scare, and that this big line was
being reduced on the bulges. The oversold
crowd bought liberally and sent prices up
sharply, only to sell again when tho manlpu
lators put on pressure, September opened very
irregular, 66o down, at 0994c to G9c
sold up to 70 s: sagged to 70c. rallied again
to the high figure and closed weak, c

Corn broke early with wheat, and on good
crop reports. One statistical Journal stated
that the total harvests In tho principal grains
would be 1,100,000.000 bushels over last year.
Corn was said to be In a promising condition.
ana as cables were easy, prices sagged. Sep'
tember closed 94c down at 51c
Oats again showed better strength than any
thing on the floor. Heavy buying, supposedly
for tho old-time bulls, sent September up over
lc early. Liberal offerings worked against
the bullish influences of good cash demand and
poor grading. The corn weakness also caused
tome selling. Trade was not large. Septnm
ber closed firm, 0c up, at 31c

IRON' PRICES 00 HIGHER
MARKED ACTIVITY AGAIN REIGNS
IN ALL LINES.
Question "Whether Furnaces "Will Be
Aule to Fill Their Contracts
for the First Quarter. "
CLEVELAND. Aug. 14. Tho Iron Trado Re
view this week says:
JIS -rfced activity In pig iron which pre
vailed throughout July and In the early days
or August appeared to have slackened Is
strongly In evidence this week. What is more,
some furnaces have advanced their prices for
next year's delivery under the continued and
well-distributed buying. Consumers, of Iron
often appear to be maklng-up their minds that
jurnace capacity is not so much the dtermln
us iucmr in me account as fuel supply. The
?tlcap In th,s Part,cu!ar la still pronounced.
W hlle tho supply of coke from the Virginias is
slightly better, the anthracite situation is un
changed, and Eastern furnaces are negotiating
for COko from districts annrt from Pnnn.ll..
villo for the first half of next year on the
nsi ss4 T -.a .
"""" - ai oven, equivalent to S3 for
The example of large users of foundry iron
who have bought their supply for the first half
of 1003 Is being followod by others whoso
wants are smaller and who have naturally
hesitated to pay tho high prices everywhere
asked. Cincinnati. Pittsburg and Chicago have
been busy markets in foundry Iron, and Buf
falo has mad good sales for delivery In the
East as 'well as In Western- Now York. The
movement has "brought rather higher quota
tions than those of a week ago, particularly
on coutnern son. southern Ohio high silicon
and Lake Superior charcoal irons. Cincinnati
offices have sold C5.000 to 70,000 tons In the
week, largely Southern foundry, besides Basle
and charcoal. Pittsburg reports 13,000 tons of
No. 2 foundry sold at from $21 75 to $22 25 for
me nrer nan or 1003.
Tho steel corporation Is renort'etl to ho s.w,
Ing large amounts of basic and forge Irons for
the last quarter of this year and the first quar
ter ai next year, out no purchases aro re
ported. Contracts for Bessemer iron by the
Steel Corporation for the second quarter of
1003 are still in abeyance. It is n nufinn if
the valley fumacemen will be able to deliver
the Iron they have Bold for. the first quarter
mier taxing caro or the business they must
carry over from this year. The fact that prom
inent Southern furnaces have ceased selling
iur tne nrst nan ct 1003 indicates both the ex
tent of the forward buying and the care of the
producers to prevent a rendition of tfii
liar Southern situation In 1002. The minimum
is now si, for No. 2 Southern and $17 50 Is
aaKeq in some cases; less frequently $18.
