STARTS WITH THE GOULDS
UPWARD MOVEMENT AAD REVIVAL
OF ACTIVITY OX STOCK MARKET.
Bituminous Coal Carriers Improve
on "Wnce Settlement Ascrecd Upon
NEW TORK. Feb. 9. There was a revival
of activity In today's stock market, which
brought the volume of trading above tho level
of last Thursday. There was greater breadth
and variety also In the dealings than for
weeks. The advances were not made all at
nee, but successive points of strength were
developed and well held. In splto of the nat
ural realizing under cover of the new
strength. There was a pause In the upward
rnoTen-.ent after the opening spurt, but after
that there was no general reaction until the
final hour. This might be accounted for by
the profit-taking rales of tho room-traders,
who saw a larger day's profit accrued than
for many days pasl The reaction was some
what emphasized by reports that new pro
posals had been received from Germany con
cerning the Venezuelan , settlement. which
threatened to open up the whole question. The
closfhg was steady and generally only a frac
tion below the best. Commission houses re
ported some Increase on outside business and
some of the largest business of the day came
from houses with extensive wire connections
In the East, the Middle West and the South.
Tho upward movement originated this morn
ing In the Gould stocks and bituminous 'coal
carriers. The Gould shares have had the ad
vantage of any Influential pool which has
carried on operations In the various securi
ties of the group for somo time past- Their
special activity of Saturday and of today was
professedly based upon the active measures
taken to complete the Atlantic outlet for the
Wabash system. In the case of the bitumin
ous coal carriers, the motive for the buy
ing was -the settlement agreed upon at In
dianapolis between the miners and the opera
tors fixing a wage scale. The possibility of
discord over this question had been a shadow
upon those stocks for several days. Another
wage settlement which seemed to gather Im
portance as It was considered was that with
the Missouri. Kansas Texas employes. The
settlement Is of Importance In Itself, and In
addition It seems to be understood that It Is
to form a basis for agreement on practically
all the railroad systems west of the Mis
souri River. The Pacifies, Grangers and
Southwestern consequently were all very
strong. These settlements represent higher
wages and corresponding Increases In railroad
expenses, but the willingness of the roads
to accede to the terms Is regarded as assur
ance of advantages to be derived-
The unprecedented congestion of freight traf
fic upon the railroads of the country Is an
Impressive demonstration of the high level of
business activity and prosperity in the coun
try. Present blockade conditions. It Is true,
are a disadvantage, and promise some bad
effect upon earnings, but the existence of the
enormous traffic Is demonstrated beyond dis
pute. While It is evident that heavy addi
tional outlays must be made by the rail
roads for facilities tt take care of their
traffic the conviction Is growing that the
conditions warrant confidence in the future
prosperity of the railroads.
In tplte of Saturday's weak bank statement,
the money market gave no enure for repres
sion of speculative activity. Call loans fell
below 2 per cent In the late trading on the
There were some prominent laggards In to
day's upward movement of prices, notably the
Erles and the United States Steel stocks. The
hard coalers did not share rully In the strength
of the market,- but the strength was fairly
comprehensive and embraced a long list of
stocks and also quite a list of minor Indus
trials on a speculative theory that this class
of stocks has a better chance for future
.growth of values than the already high
priced railroad stocks.
There were heavy spots In the bond mar
ket, but enough points of strength to make

of the session was generally weak, with one
or two slight rallies, and the close was near

ket ruled firm throughout the day. The close
was firm, with May 14c higher at 45HS45ic

in tne pit was somewhat bullish, but the
weakness In wheat caused considerable liqui

dragged apart Both teams claimed they
were obliged to adopt the tactics they did
In self-defense. The final score was:
