tnme 14 In the naai dealings. The de
velopments m tbe money situation may
aci.unt for the weakness in the Iron
inuastrials, as tbey are still looked upon
w h disfavor by bankens and money-lenders
The decrease in the oasb account of the
banks .conformed very olosely to prelim
inary estimates, and the loan expansion
Of $18 684,800 created no great surprise, in
view of tbe recent tendency and the well
known pressure for accommodations in all
parts of tbe business world.
The weekly trade reviews sufficiently in
dicate the widespread activity in business
in all lines at a high level of prices. Sur
prise is rather felt that call money should
hae continued In apparently abundant
supply at per cent during yesterday. It
is d. ffieult to discern any prospect of
early relief from the factors which are
making inroads on tbe banks' cash, re
sources and with continued pressure on the
banks at tbe present rate for credits, the
ent roaehments upon surplus reserves
must be rapid.
Generally speaking, the tone of tbe stock
market has been Arm this week, but dull,
the average day's business failing consid
erably below fOM shares. Advances have
been made In rather a desultory fash-on,
now here and now there, but, once made,
ilwy were yielded very grudgingly, in
spite of tbe dullness.
It became plainly manifest Tuesday,
when the week opened after Monday's
holiday, that the previous week's burden
of realising sales was no longer pressing
on the market, and operations by bull
pools forced by professional stock traders
Quickly showed themselves.
The strength of tbe market was due to
the growing conviction that last year's
prosperous business conditions have & fair
chance of continuance. But tbe profes
sional operators In stocks were the only
p rsons to manifest the courage of their
convictions by buying stocks on any con
siderable scale. The general outside pub
Ik maintained an apathetic attitude to-
ward tbe market. Last week's reduction
in prices, when news was all favorable,
caused doubt and distrust in tbe minds of
outsider, and they have refused to come
back into the market this week. The
public apathy has been a weight on the
market, and tbe weakness of individual
stocks from special causes has been a
further disturbing factor. The failure of
plans to fund the floating debt of the
Third-Avenue Railroad Company, a poor
season for the rubber business, owing to
tbe fine weather; Intimations of a coming
suspension of cash dividends on Pacific
Mail, a Teported bond issue by Continen
tal Tobacco, to take up stock of a new
const tuent company these were some of
the causes which caused weakness in a
fiw stocks and checked tbe advancing
tc ndency In the general list. Add to these
a d sposltion to caution about overstrain
ing the money market in view of the
heavy demands making upon it for use In
the regular channels of business, and the
renewed absorption by the treasury of the
retinue surplus since Internal revenue re
ceipts are flowing ones more Into tbe treas
ury Instead at Into depository banks, and
the factors of reaction are most of them
On tbe other hand are details of pros
perity from all sides. Current railroad
earnings are at an unprecedented level,
and the volume of merchandise traffic !s
undiminished, la spite of higher rates In
effect, thus more than offsetting a small
xnoement in grain and some other agri
cultural products. The working out of
plans for dominance in control of com
ix Lng lines by groat railroad systems
g' s evidenoe of iprfcgiteee, and especially
ir he Southern group of trunk lines and
the outlines of an agreement among two
great trunk lines for division of territory
are seen to emerge.

Issued by the treasury bureau of statis
tics shows that tbe foreign demand for
manufactures hi wall maintained, in spite
of the high level of prices ruling, and

Tho world's large needs for otton are
b- iicved to insure a good market, not
only for tbe moving crop, but for the com
ing one, with a oorretpondlag increase in
the buying power of the cotton sections

The litigious outbreak between oper
ators In one of the great steel companies
has brought to public not&e assertions re
garding last year's profits In the trade,
an estimates of tbe rowing year's profits;
placing them at astounding proportions.

financial circles. The elCect In this mar

attracted mm attends. It Is cooceded
that tbe ecpenetoa in leans reported Feb-

from oonmerciai sources, an unusually
large number of banks having participate
ed in the movement. The currency state
ment, however, when subjected to closer
analysis, revealed the fact that the new
loans Vera made by a few of the more
prominent banks, one institution alone ac
counting for naarly half the gain.
The significant fact in connection with
the statement is the stoppage of interior
receipts and the resumption of payments
in thp treasury. So far from gaining
from the interior, the New York banks
last week actually shipped considerable
funds to other cities, and the treasury
losses amounted to over $L500,00(. This Is
likely to be a continuing process, and

Captain James Troup, one of the best

and formerly superintendent of tW Q. R. j-

city, is winning new honors with the
Canadian Pacific He has just been pro
moted to the position of superintendent of
both rail and steamer lines of that com
pany in the Kootenai and TJppervColumbia
districts. Since leaving Portland, Captain
Troup has built 2a steamers for; the big
company whose interests he is looking
after, and all of the fleet have proved
highly successful and profitable. The
rail lines which have now been placed
under his charge run all through the min
ing districts of the upper river and lake
region, there being half a dozen small
roads In the system, connecting, with the
river and lake steamers and with the
main line of the Canadian Pacific.
The promotion of Captain Troup was the
means of moving Captain John Gore up

of the fleet on the Columbia for several
years, and now -goes to Nelson, B- C, as t
port captain of the steamers on both the

BATTLES (M SUNDAY.
Jttore Important! War Incidents on
That Day Tlirui on An? Other.
There Is a proposition which has been
set forth with much energy by some cor
respondents whose views have reached
i me. That is, that the one cause for which
wo both ought to humiliate ourselves, and
the one that 1& In fact the .secret! of all
our failures, has been that our generals
have, fought Qn Sunday. It Is, therefore,
rather interesting tp note how very many
battles have talien place on Sunday. Cer
tainly their result has no.t alvays cor
responded with tie views of the extreme
To begin with, since these comments
were made, General French has carried
out a most successful operation, whlcn
was due to a movement on Sunday. The
great battle of the Nile, by which Nelson
destroyed the fleet of Napoleon and made
tho scheme on which the future master of
the Continent had set his heart the con
quest of Egypt, with a view to the con
quest of India impossible, took place on
Sunday. Vlmiera, the- first great Euro
pean success of the Duke- of. Wellington,
was fought on Sunday. Fuentes dOndro,
perhaps the most fiercely contested and
risky of all Wellington battles In the
peninsula, was fought on a Sunday.
Orthes also was a Sunday battle. Cludad
Rodrigo was, captured .on-a. Sunday. It
Is almost needless to say that Waterloo
and Inkerman were Sunday battles. The
outbreak of the mutiny which was, it
must be admitted, not successful ulti-.
mately for those who took part in it,
but which shook our dominion in India
and exposed us to almost as great 'anx
iety as the present campaign occurred
on Sunday. The great stroke which dealt
the first deadly blow against the center
of the mutiny the capture of Delhi was
delivered on Sunday. The fight at Rorke's
drifb was om Sunday. Both Flrkeh and
Omdurman were Sunday battles.
I have limited) myself in this statement
to our English fighting during the pres
ent century. The list might be indefinite
ly extended if one went back over the
great battles of the past. If one- were to
