Some of the bullish feM2g whjch characterized the market last week seems '.to have evap - , crated since Saturday..' The - profffslonal element bellevea Out a reaction Is due, and the "market may become unsettled, lowing to th doubts In regard to the Issue . of the negotiation which' are now ;be!ngj carried on la' Part between - , this icouhtry and Spain. There was also soma jinclinatloa to believe that the renewed iactivlty la speculation will cause, In the near future, a decided upward movement In mowy rates. That soma upward movement will take piaca Is shown by the fact that where, as llit week, six months'' money was o ft e red at 2 per cent - , fa's per cent, is now bid freely, and banks re trying to place tne:r loans at per Ir - enC. on the whole. However, at t ODenlnr. ; the sreuure 'to ie!l was not Ivery gftzi. but it was sufficient to bring prices 'somewhat lower than they were yesterday. Pressure to sell was especially noticeable jn N. ,P. common, of which stock one house sold 15.a0 shares. This selling was thought to indicate that the .differences supposed to exist in the directorate have not been settled, and there was some doubt as to whether a dividend would be declared on the common siock. 1 The strongest stocks on the list were Oma I fca and Northwestern, both of which were idv;aneei on rumors ot increased aivKimus. There ems 'also some buying of North - Western preferred, which reached the highest price at which it has sold for some yearn. There can; however, be no Increase In the dividend of this stock untll - the common stock nas received 7 per tt. After that the. preferred" stock is en'ltled to en addi.tionJ - 3.per cent, to be followed by an additional 3 per cent - on the common stock, and after these dividends have been paid the stocks share and share alike. There was lees activity in K. C, P. & O. than there was yesterday, and rather more pressure - to sell; The - room 'still continues akeptical In regard to the rumored deal between the Chicago & Alton and K. C, P. At Cj but the best information is to the' effect that the deal i will go through. London houses did littlol or! nothing until after the first half - hour. I aftjer which they were heavy buyers.

It were ready for the picnic - party and the dance.' Gradually the effect of the work of the park forces is seen, but it will take a great deal of labor to make a large showing la the great park. Things which attract the attention now are the clean appearance of the wooded j lands and the work on the bicycle naihl and roads. Two thirty - foot roads are be - lng made now.
