NEW YORK STOCK MARKET
VIGOROUS COVEHIXG HELPED TIIE
INDUSTRIALS AXD SPECIALTIES.
kcWcck' Business Was Jfotatile
-for Violent Movements In Differ
ent Group of Stock.
NEW YORK, March 3. The feature of
the stock market was the disturbed con
dition of mind manifested by 'the bears
whose demands for stocks to c6ver short
contracts worked some violent recoveries
In the industrial and specialty department
of .the market This influence was first
evident in Tnlrd Avenue, which bounded
up eight points on the belief that the
financial assistance had been secured to
rehabilitate the property. The short ac
count in Sugar gave signs of being over
extended, and after falling to near 95. the
Quotation touched 1015 In the lata deal
ings. A decline of Vaw sugars, thus wid
ening the gap between the cost of raw
end Tefined sugars, was an influence. The
movement in these stocks had a sympa
thetic influence upon other Industrials, and
there were great recoveries from the open
ing weakness during the first hour.
A period of dullness and heaviness suc
ceeded, while waiting for' the bank state
ment, and upon the publication of that
statement, the market displayed Increas
ing animation and strength until the close,
which was generally at the top, and net
gains in nearly all stocks. Part of the
buying was on the principle that when bad
news is out a rally Is due. But the return
was, in fact, not so weak as had been
feared. Receipts of cash from the inte
rior were larger than anticipated, and the
loss in cash correspondingly less. Another
loan expansion so formidable as $9,621,000
fc-as apparently viewed with complacency,
as the feeling has grown up in Wall street
that much of the recent loan expansion
will find a quick return to the Tnoney
market. So long as call loans are made
at 22& per cent, there will be no acute
alarm over the money market prospects.
The stock market this week has been
torn by the conflicting influences of vio
lent contrary movements In different
groups of stocks, affected by Individual
cause. There have been sharp losses In
the department of Industrials and so
called specialties Including the stocks of
corporations operating the New Tork pub
lic utilities, and there have been notable
gains In some railroad stocks based on
large earnings reported. The strength of
railroads has at times checked the fall of
In the industrials, and at other times the
sudden breaks in the Industrials have un
settled the whole market, and have been a
drag on the movement in the railroads.
Neither the gains on the one hand, nor
the losses on the other, have been fully
maintained, and it is impossible to deter
mine the dominant tendency of the mar
ket nor to determine how far the apathy
of the public demand for stocks would be
changed if the market were relieved from
the special disturbing influences.
The principal disturbing element has
been Third Avenue, which has sold over
SO points lower than last Saturday's clos
ing price, and very nearly 200 points lower
than the high price of the corresponding
period of last year. Such a development
in a stock long closely held and regarded
as a safe Investment security has an In
evitable effect on other securities. There
were old rivalries and animosities between
the bold and powerful speculative inter
ests, which the misfortunes on the stock
afforded an opportunity to gratify. The
long-standing conflict for centralized con
trol of the New Tork public utilities was
also Involved, not only in the movements
of the group, but through sympathetic
connections of other stocks.
There has been furious speculation In
the certificates of the Sugar Refining Com
pany, based on ambiguous utterances of
the president of the company that he
would oppose the payment of dividends
unless the company earned them. This
riddle will not be solved for the public
until after the directors have acted on the
dividend next "Wednesday, when specula
tors will be able to foot up their galn3
or their losses. The iron and steel stocks
have also been a disturbing influence
without any very clear explanation being
given for the large selling of them. One
current but not very plausible explana
tion is that the earnings of these com
panies are proving so large that effective
competition Is invited and Is being organ
ized. The reports of authorities in the
trade, showing large consumers still halt
ing over the making of future contracts
for material, obviously with. the expecta
tion that prices will go lower, seems a
more rational explanation.
These disturbing Influences have partly
offset, but have not wholly prevented, the
effect of the extraordinary earnings re
ported by many of the great railroads for
January. It has been, feared that the
prices of material would so far extend
the cost of operation and repairs on the
railroads, their net earnings would fall
to be benefited by the large Increase In
the gross earnings. The statements pub
lished during the week effectively refute
this supposition. Even where the actual
cost of operating has greatly increased,
the ratio of operating expenses to gross Is
so far reduced as to leave handsome In
creases in net earnings. SL Paul Is an
exception, owing, it is explained, to ex
traordinary Improvements charged to ex
penses. Taking the most striking exam
ples, the great Pennsylvania system of
lines directly operated east and west of
Pittsburg gains in January 73 per cent in
net earnings over last year; Atchison. .85
per cent; Reading. 93; Erie, 44; Wabash,
42, and Lehigh Valley. 143 per cent The
balance of earnings, after deducting the
month's proportion of fixed charges in
creases over tenfold by the Cleveland. Cin
cinnati. Chicago & St Louis Railroad, and
122 per cent by Burlington.
Wall-street skepticism over the expla
nation mat tnc recent enormous loan ex
pansions by New Tork banks has been
taken out to meet commercial demands,
has been justified by the news develop
ments of the week. Special transactions
have become known which account for
large loans, notably the anticipatory pay
ment by the Central Pacific of a $3,000,000
note to the Government, the taking up by
New Tork capitalists of a loan to a Rus
sian railroad guaranteed by the Russian
Governmont. said to amount to $25,000,000
and the proceeds of which are, by the
- jterms of the loan, to be expended in this
country, and large borrowings by Interior
banks for the purchase of Government
bonds, with a view of taking out addi
tional note circulation under the provi
sions of the new refunding law when it is
enacted. It does not escape notice that
even for February the national bank note
circulation has been increased some $2 447 -4S5.
The British successes in South Africa
have resulted In buying of stocks in New
Tork for London account, which, coupled
with the urgent foreign demand for cotton
at the high prices prevailing, has depressed
ine rate ror sterling exchange so that gold
imports are considered within measurable
distance. These considerations must ex
plain the comparative equanimity with
which Wall street contemplates the rapid
Inroads being made upon the surplus re
serves of the clearing-house banks.
The market for railroad bonds has shown
decreased inactivity during the week, and
the price movement has been Irregular.

XEV YORK FIXAXCES.
Weekly Bniik Statement Shows BIjr
Increase in Loans.
NEW TORK, March 3. The Financier
A decrease of $C.037,000 In the surplus re
serve of the clearing-house banks of New
Tork for the current week has reduced
the excess cash holdings to 513.G41.550, a
shrinkage of more than $17,000,000 In one
month. The feature of the statement Is
the continued rise In loans. The Increase
for the week In that Item has been $9.
- 621,000. One month ago the total was
$55,000,000 lower than now reported. Thli
exceeds last year's record very largely,
although the incentive which brought
about the IKS expansion is lacking now.
The explanation for the rapid Increase
In loan commitments lies In the heavy
volume of commercial business which the
country 1b" doing. Lately there has ap
peared another factor the absorption of
Government bonds by banks and this ac
counts in part for the continued addition
to the loan item. The banks are still los
ing cash to. the Treasury. The statement
gives a decrease of $4,507,000 in specie
$757,400 for the week. This is a little
less than had been expected, as the Treas
ury had drawn more than that during
the week. The inference is that the banks
gained rather than lost on interior ac- j
count The increase of $3,050,400 In de
posits was much below the average ex- j

TACOMA'S REGULAR. LIXE.
Portland Firm's Baslne the Sub
ject of Some Recular "LyinV
A very small investment of fact brings
wholesale returns of tho rankest kinds
of fiction over in the windy cities of
Puget Sound. The following press dis
patch was sent out from Tacoma Thurs
day: "Tacoma, March 1. The whaleback
Inverness, which took on a big lot of
flour for shipment to Port Arthur yes
terday. Is the first ship of a regular line
that Is to operate between Puget Sound
and Siberian ports. The service for the
present will be one ship every 40- days,
but when the railroad across Siberia is
completed, it Is proposed to have a ship
on the Sound every 20 days."
Here are the fact3 in the case: The
Inverness was chartered by the Pacific
Export Lumber Company, of this city,
several months ago to load lumber and
flour at Portland for Port Arthur, with
tho option of loading on the Sound. The
accident to the steamship Elm Branch
delayed the arrival of that steamer at
Portland so long that In order not to
have both of the steamers in Portland
at once the Inverness was diverted to
tho Sound. The Pacific Export Lumber
Company, of this city, has been dis
patching steamships and sailing vessels
from Portland for Siberia and the Orient
for nearly three years, and during that
time has occasionally, to prevent "bunch
ing" of their fleet in this port diverted
steamers to the Sound. At present the
Arm is loading the Guernsey at Van
couver, the Inverness at Tacoma and the
Elm Branch at Portland.
Portland is the headquarters of the firm,
and from this city the greater number of
their vessels are dispatched, although
they have never maintained a regular
line. The Elm Branch, now loading In
this city, will carry a larger cargo of
flour and ltfmber than the Inverness,
but she Is neither the first, last nor In
termediate steamer of a regular line.

Dr. Lamberson, of Linn County, writes
to the Lebanon Express-Advance as fol
lows: "Dr. Hill has made a bargain for a
largo $S00 static machine, with all the X

chine running, and Dr. Hill stood up, and
as large and thick as he is, I looked
through him and saw every bone In his
fat body. I could see his great big heart
beat, and, placing my pocket knife at his
back, I could see it as plain aa the noon

wonderful and weird sight to look at one
of your friends through this great ma
chine. He talked to me when I was look
ing through him, and. strange as it may
seem, his clothes could not ba seen, but
his liver, lungs, heart and skeleton were
plainly visible. It makes one shudder at
first to look at a talking skeleton, but
after feeling of his warm hands and being
assured that he was really alive this
strange feeling soon wore off."

Are Free From Some Form of Indi
gestion. Very few people are free from some
form of Indigestion, but scarcely two
will have the same symptoms.
Some suffer most directly after eating,
bloating from gas In stomach and bowels,
others have heartburn or sour risingc.
still others have palpitation of heart,
headaches, sleeplessness, pains in chest
and under shoulder blades, some have ex
treme nervousness, as in nervous dys
pepsia. But whatever the symptoms may be, the
causo in all cases of Indigestion is the
same, that is, tho stomach for some rea
son fails to properly and promptly digest
what is eaten.
This Is the whole story of stomach
troubles in a nutshell. The stomach must
have rest and assistance, and Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets give it both by sup
Plying those natural digestives which
every weak stomach lacks, owing to the
failure of the peptic glands In the stom
ach to secrete sufficient acid and pepsin
to thoroughly digest and assimilate the
One grain of the active principle In Stu
art's Dyspepsia Tablets' will digest 3000
grains of meat, eggs or other wholesome
food, and this claim has been proven by
actual experiment, which any one can per
form for himself In the following man
ner: Cut hard-boiled egg Into very small
pieces, as it would be If masticated, place
the egg and two or three of the tablets
In a bottle or Jar containing warm water,
heated to $& degrees (the temperature of
the body) and keep It at this temperature
for three and one-half horrs, at the end
of which time the egg will be as com
pletely digested as It would have been
In the healthy stomach of a hungry boy.
The point of this experiment Is that
what Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will do
to tho egg in the bottle It will do to the
egg or meat in the stomach, and nothing
else will rest and invigorate the stomach
so safely and effectually. Even n little
child can tako Stuart's Tablets with safe
ty and benefit If Its digestion is weak,
and the thousands of cures accomplished
by their regular dally use are easily ex
plained wh'en it is understood that they
are composed of vegetable essences, asep
tic pepsin, diastase and Golden Seal,
which mingle with the food and digest It
thoroughly, giving the overworked stom
ach a chance to recuperate.
Dieting never cures dyspepsia, neither
do pills and cathartic medicines, which
simply Irritate and inflame the intestines.
When onough food Is eaten and prompt
ly digested there will be no constipation,
nor. in fact, will there be disease of any
kind, because good digestion means good
health In every organ.
The merit and success of Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tablets are world-wide, and they
are sold at the moderate price of 50 cents
for full-sized package in every drug store
In tho United States and Canada, as well
as in Europe.
For the information of those Interested,
a little book will be mailed free by ad
dressing F. A. Stuart Company, Marshall,
Mich., giving briefly the symptoms of the
various forms of stomach weakness,
causes and cure.

Bile collects in the blood, bowels become constipated and your
whole system is poisoned. A lazy liver is an invitation for a
thousand pains and aches to come and dwell with you. Your
