REYIEW OF MARKETS FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL Stocks, Money, Exchange, Bonds, Grain, Cotton, Provisions, Etc. Now York, March 11.?Quotations on the Stock Exchange left oil fractionally above yesterday's clOBe and near the highest. Trading e.t the outset was of a hesitating oharaoter, showing a dispo? sition to follow any move in the spe? cialties. This was Indicated by a rise In Sugar, the improvement in this Block cancelling the earlier decline. The gen? eral market moved sympathetically, but very narrowly. Subscqw ntly there was a raid on Metropolitan Street Railway, Which dropped five points, This incident stimulated short sales on the other stocks, with concessions quite material In Manhattan, Brooklyn Transit, Sugar and Hay State Gas. The latter was par? ticularly influenced by the action of the Boston exchange authorities In discon? tinuing trading in the stock. This ac? tion was subsequently taken by the governors at the local exchange. The railway shares moved very sluggishly a...
