MARKET REPORTS NEW YORK STOCK MARKET. NEW YORK. Oct. 2.?The stock market had to face this morning the] accumulated depression of three days' I trading in a sagging market in London, while the exchange was closed here.! The drop in prices at the opening was a wide one. numerous railroad stocks showing a loss of a point or over and Tennessee Coal showing an extreme decline of T points. The local traders were inclined to feel that London was unduly depressed especially with ref? erence to American securities, and they started to bid prices up again. The first loan of the day was made at 6 per cent, and this encouraged an optimis? tic view of the money outlook. The rally was short lived and the course was quite consistently downward for! the rest of the day. A sharp advance in the coalers on the advance in the price of anthracite was ineffectual to check the decline. London sold not only dur? ing the first hour hut as long as offi? ces thee wore open for business. HEAVY LIQUIDATION Liqu...

NEW YORK STOCK MARKET. NEW YORK, Oct. 3?The disturbed condition of the foreign markets for se? curities and the forward tendency of foreign discounts caused a break in prices at the opening of the stock ex? change here. The selling movement was quite active in the first hour and low prices for the day in the majority of stocks were made in that time. There was some pressure later in the day in obscure quarters of the slock list. Rut prices were generally better by the end of the first hour, in the latter part or the day the small volume of offerings caused the bidding up of prices. Xo large offerings were brought out by the advance and even the violent upward leap in the money rate to 40 per cent, after 2 o'clock caused only a slight set back in prices. They hardened again and the closing was very firm in an al? most stagnant market and only slightly below the best of the day. There is a very fair mixture of net gains through? out" the list. i M A11K ET N' >T A F F E< "I" EI &...
