10 * BOSTON POST, TUESDAY. NOVEMBER 24. 1903 MARKET STRONGER BUT TRADING BULL Wall Street, Nov. 23. Today’s stock market stood up well In face of a number of uptoward circumstances and clo.sed quite lirm at the toi» level of the day and on the most active market of the day Southern PaclÇc as- «umed the leadership of an early advance, which was rather decidedly checked by an outpouring of United States Steel preferred, which carried that stock down to 50 1-2 and awakened renewed apprehension of its further demoralizing effect on the whole stock market. The persistence with which assertions have reappeared that the dividend on the common stock la to be suspended and that on the preferred stock to be reduced has made Its Impression upon speculative sentiment since the authorities In the corporation who have been appealed to for information go no further than to sa.v that the question is for the future to decide. The suggestion, which found Its way to the public today with the appearance of being ln.spired, that a reduction of the dividend on the plreférred would consort poorly with the corporation’s privilege to issue $50,000,00() of eecond bonds to retire preferred stock, sèemed to have a more reassuring effect on the speculators and helped in the recovery of United States Steel preferred. The stock closed with a net gain of a point. The stiffness of the call money market was another deterrent factor toward the rise. Call loans touched 7 1-2 ,per cent, while the demand for money which caused this rise wa» unmistakable, it seemed to be viewed with equanimity. The premium established for New York exchange at Chicago is taken to point to an early return flow to this centre, which the high call money rate would help to Induce. Confldence Is felt also that any real need for money would draw further gold froim London. Saturday’.« State Street, Nov. 23. The .=:tock market was not active today. but was much stronger than Saturday. While there are a few who look for a bad market in December, owing to the fact. that there ire still a few weak spots, still the great majority of trad,ers^ and brokers look for practically steady improvement from this on. It may be. probably will be, slow, how- eVer, but by the middle of January It Is generally believed that substantial progress will have been made toward a higher level of prices. In the local market the coppers were very Arm, especially In the afternoon, helped by the rally In Amalgamated which seems to be starting out to discount to some extent the possibility of a favorable Supreme Court decision In, the McGlnness suits In Montana. The fact that Fighter Augustus Heinze was building political fences and also planning to appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States - in the Racus case didn’t seem to have much effect on Ama:igamated stock. Certainly Heinze COLLINS. PARENT AND HUGHES IN TOWN ESTABROOK TEAM LOSES With Jimmy Collins, Fred Parent and Tom Hughes of the Collins team in town yesterday, baseball cranks were given a new lease of life, and for a while hase- baill crowded out post mortems on the big football game. Collins struck town late Sunday night and looks the part he is playing—that of a gentleman with a heavy and Increasing Income. He Is much heavier than when the Pittsburg games were .being played and feels as well as he looUl. Fred Parent came to Boston from the little town of -Sanford, Me., to see the big football game, and spent yesterday In consulting with Boston’s leading architects over plans for a new mansion in the woods, which Parent intends to build this winter. Hughes blew Into town from Scranton, Penn., to renew old friendships and to lead the grand march at the Rooters’ ball, which is to be held Dec. 3 at Odd Fellows’ Hall. Collins’s visit will combine pleasure and business. Collins always manages to get here a few times during the winter and doesn’t lose any opportunity to pick a ¡he will remain in town fora few days. arrivals of gold amounted to $3.591,^23, | quarrel. His stock, by the way. United Copper, sold today at 9, 8 and 7 1-2. Later, however. It Is said that 12 was offered with no sellers In sight. Very likely the sales at thè low figures were of the '‘laundry’’ variety, though It is a fact that the public has never been falling-over Itself to any great extent to buy the stock. It would be Interesting to know just what will happen when the underwriting agreement expires on I United Copper stock Dee. 31. ' ! Amalgamated gained 3-4 to 3» today. | Copper Range, after falling to 4fl-4,1 rallied to 43 1-4, closing at 43. Only four points between the two now. Is the gap | to be closed up againHow about that, Mr. Lawson? Can’t you tell us something about It, òr aren’t you interested In seeing higher prices for Range just From a talk with Cdllins, It can be said that with possibly one exception all of the Collins team of 1906 will play here in 1904. Jake Stahl will be let go to Washington. Yesterday afternoon Collins journeyed to Marlboro and made terms with the genial Duke Farrell. Collins and Hughes unexpectedly ran into each other on Washington street. Jokingly, Collins told Hughes that he understood that a "combination” had been foVmed to have a little fun with Henry Klllilea. Hughes denied this. Collins called him to one side, and in a few minutes everything was arranged. Collins said: "We will have a good team in 1904. It should be even better than our champion team. Practically all of our players will be re-signed. Unglaub cad O’Neill will be given 5 good tryout. Washington Is negotiating with Jake Stahl, and as Farrell and Criger will be In shape, -Klllilea is apt to let Jake (Stahl go. There is nothing n^w. The men seem willing to play In Boston again, and 1 think the Boston public Is satisfied with them all. Intend‘to give Boston the best team possible. On my way here I had a talk with Dineen at Syracuse, and the hlg fellow Is looking forward to next season already. No, none of the boys have touched me yet,! and I guess they have all gotten th«ir winter coal In. If toey haven’t they should be ashamed of themselves. "Freeman Is busy with hla fighting cocks. He has the best birds In Pennsylvania, according to Tom Hughes, who spent a few days with him last week. If Freeman had enough money he would outrival your own Tom Lawson. He would own a stable of runners and he would get into the A.merica’s cup game.*’ In the Bankers and Brokers’ league games at the Chauncy alleys last night Hornblower & Weeks won three from Estabrook and Tucker-Anthony won from Lee-Higginson.

The demand for money Is regarded as normal to the last week of the month. For these reasons the current firmness of the call money market does not seem to disturb sentiment. Another factor of possible disturbance was the collapse In Republic Steel preferred, which lost 7 points on the day. There was no sympathetic response to this outside of a few of the other Iron Daly Wqst dlvidendir checks looked so substantial that the stock advanced 1-2 to 36. Michigan, U. S.

My own opinion is that the market will gradually strengthen. There is every Indication that urgent liquidation is over, and that hereafter It will be realization of profits rather than what 19 termed liquidation." The directors of the Calumet & Hecla Mining Company today declared a dividend of $1-0 per share, payable Dec. 22 ! to stockholders on record Nov. 25.

Leonard’s kick made in the last few yards of the coveted goal line, but the Boston Latin boys dug their cleats into the ground and staved off defeat. With only a few seconds left to play and with ^he ball on the 15-yard line, Leonard saw it was useless to try to push the ball over. He signalled for a drop kick. His linemen held hard, tho pass was good, as like a flash the ball struck the ground. Between three Latin minutes of a hard fought contest set i School forwards the ball rose and sailed the Newton rooters wild with delight, and i over the crossbar. at the conclusion of the game he was borne around the field on the shoulders of his happy schoolmates. Before the game started neither team had lost a league game and the rivalry between them was bitter. Both were very evenly matched and both had their rooters out In force. Twice in the second half Newton got the ball to within a few Latin School wa.s not yet beaten and had the time been longer would have stood a good chance to score. They were rushing the ball desperately to the Newton goal line when the referee’s whistle blasted their hopes. Both teams played snappy ball throughout and the game was one of the finest school contests seen around Boston this season.

All three men belong In Greater Boston and Georgetown’s good work on the gridiron has been the source of much satisfaction to their hundreds of admirers in this city. “Hub” Hart, who plays right halfback, comes from Everett and Is captain of the Georgetown eleven. He is well known to local sport followers. Before entering Georgetown he played on the Boston College football and baseball teams. He is as good at baseball as at fq|>tball and is al.<30 a star track athlete. Hart’s speed as a runner has helped Georgetown to win many of her games this year. Perhaps the best known of the trio is "Joe” Riley of Charlestown, who, with Hart, also represented Boston College on the track, gridiron and diamond. Riley is one of the finest all-round athletes In the present college world. He runs the quarter mile under 50 seconds, plays a remarkably strong football and bnscball game, and last June was one of the best oarsmen on the Georgetown crew, which finished well up in the Intercollegiate regatta on the Poughkeepsie. Riley Is studying dentistry at Georgetow'n. In the Princeton-Georgetown game the Tiger coaches after the game paid high tribute to the line plunging ability of Leon Martell of Weymouth, who plays | fullback for Georgetown. Martell Is a i freshman at Georgetowif, and great ; things are expected of him before he completes his college course It was a big day at the fish pier. There were 38 arrivals, and they brought in 618,300 pounds of mixed fresh fish. Included In this were 215,000 pounds hake. 150,100 haddock, 98,500 cod, 21,500 cusk, 129,000 pollock and 1800 halibut. If this pace is kept up during the balance of the week there will certainly be no scarcity of fish In Boston. Haddock sold at 4c. to 4 l-2c., large cod at 5c. to 5 l-2c., market cod at 3c., hake at 1 l-4c. to 1 l-2c., pollock at Ic., and cusk at 1 l-2c. The fleet included the Vidla M. Brigham. Massachusetts.

Major H. '1\ Scott of the Fourteenth Cavalry and five American privates were wounded. Major Scott was taking Panglima Massen, the Moro leader, who had been taken a prisoner, to Jolo. While en route Hae- .«ien asked to be allowed to see his fai ily. His appeal was gi-anted, and thereupon led Major Scott into an ambuscade. where the^ American detachment was fired upon.
