of business and that some are working under a press of orders,

Railroad bonds have been less active than in previous weeks,
and the dealings, excejjt for a few sjicculative classes, have

been without animation. The course of prices has been irregular, some advancing while othei-s declined, though the general

on Thursday to 91*, though since stronger and closing at 96f.
One of the interesting developments of the week concerning
this stock was the jiublication of Mr. S. V. White's letter to his
customers, dated Dec. 12th, in which he said that he had sold
out all their holdings and his own, except a certain amount of
investment stock. This was sufficient to account for the recent
decline but the Street never knows just how to interpret such
communications, and they are ajjt to regard them as a little
"foxy," The other coal .stocks were also weak, and Del.
Hudson and Jersey Central det-lined materially. It was reported that a reduction in coal prices was imminent, but later
it became known that a combination of the comj^anies for 188*

Fitchburg.
(For the year ending Sept. 30, 1884.)
The annual report says: "Early in the year the NewYork Central & Hudson Elver Railroad Company withdrew
heir passenger and freight lines from this road. Our connecion and pleasant relations with the New York Lake Erie &
Western and the Delaware Lackawanna & Western Railroad
companies have been continued, and a new line established in
connection with the New York West Shore & Buflfalo Railroad.
Our various freight lines, running in connection witli the tliree
loads named, are becoming well ?nd favorably known, and are
sure to secure to us a proper share of the traffic. We have lines
of Pullman cars, with new and first-class equipment, running
Buffalo, Chicago and St. Louis through the West Shore
Railroad, and to Chicago by the Erie. These lines are increasing in popularity, and we are happy to report that our prospects for the maintenance of an efficient through route between the East and the West are far better than at any time
in the previous history of the road. Notwithstanding the
embanassments under which we have labored, the volume of
our business has largely increased and but for the unfortunate
war in rates, which has waged for a large part of the year just
closed, we should have shown much more favorable results."

track, Baltimore to Hagerstown, or say $507,516 in addition
to the gain of $1,242,484 from capitalizing the interest nowpaid at 3'65 per cent, then if this $507,516 can also be obtained
at 3'65 per cent, provision will have been made for the additional track at an annual cost to the company of but $18,524.
" Now, as the road is virtually the property of the city, and
as the city can readily borrow the desired amount at 3 '65 per

place the company in funds to satisfy these mortgages, and to
pay over to the company, as the work progresses, $1,243,484,

The steel track was extended across the mountain and through

bridges were substituted for wood.
The report says: "Notwithstanding the general depression

Western Maryland has not only held its own, but has slightly
increased both its gross and net earnings, which it is believed
augurs well for the results which must attend its operations

" On account of the steady increase in business and in the
number of trains required for its accommodation, which is
much greater than would be necessary upon other roads with
lighter grades, it is generally felt by all who have given tlie

and the Union Pacific Railway Company, involving all
the issues arising out of the construction of the Thurman
Act, has beeri before the Court of Claims. The argument was
closed on the 11th inst. The case is now in the hands of the
Court, and an early decision will undoubtedly be reached. It
is confidently believed that a complete settlement between the
United States and the company under tlie requirements of the
Thurman Act will soon be effected. "
From Jan. 1 to Nov. 80, the latest date to which they have
been reported, the land sales were reported in the Chronicle
of Dec. 13.
"The purchase of $1,049,000 of the Union Pacific Land Grant

effecting an annual reduction of fixed charges of !?73.430.

Mr. Adams recommends that the proceeds of Kansas Pacific
land sales be applied as a sinking fund to the purchase and
retii-ement of the Kansas Pacific consoliilated mortgage bonds,
instead of to the payment of interest on those bonds. He says
that " the Executive Committee have therefore caused a suitShould it
able supplementary contract to be prepared.
receive the approval of the directors, it will practically convert the bonds issued under the Consolidated Kansas Pacific
mortgage into land gi-ant sinking fund bonds: and as there
now remain some four million acres of the Kansas Pacific land

sold to the amount of $2,794,579, the ultimate extinguishment of
these bonds before maturity will in great part be provided for,"

little from that of June 30, except in the items of " land contract?, cash, &c.," which had been increased Sept. 30 by $3,218,987, and the item of "bills payable," which had decrease
$1,421,7.54, and the.se items were balanced on the otiier sidii
by an increase in "profit and loss."
"Owing to the payment made in June to the United Stateson account of requirements under the Tliurman Act ($718,1

$1,449,814; the net floating debt of the company had, on Juik
30, considerably increased over its amount at the close of the
previous quarter (March 31). It was decreased during the

$600,000 a month, aa appears from tlie following comparative

Galveston. Cotton on the spot has continued quiet, with quotations for the most part nominal.
Figures were on Monday
reduced l-16c., followed by advances of igC. on Tuesday and
l-16c. on Monday.
Yesterday there was a decline of l-16c.
To-day there was a fresh advance of I-I60., middling uplands closing at lie.
The total sales for forward delivery for the week are 513,200
bales.
For immediate delivery the total sales foot up this week
1,634 bales, including
for export, 1,634 for consumption,
for speculation and
in transit. Of the above, 300 bales
were to arrive. The following are the official quotations for
each day of the past week.

week under review, a good deal of activity
and excitement, attended by a marked advance in prices.
There was some improvement on Saturday, owing to the
fact that Liverpool yielded less than had been anticipted it
would do in sympathy with our decline, and from the effect of
the heavy failure at Vienna; and on Monday a movement
having the appearance of an effort to "corner" early deliveries, with January the objective month, caused an irregular
advance, followed on Tuesday by an excited and buoyant market.
Wednesday was variable, closing lower under sales to
realize.
Thursday was variable and unsettled, closing slightly
lower. To-day there was a renewal of speculative activity
ftnd buoyancy. The "bull" party again talked of a small crop
and reduced stocks, and the buying for the rise extended to
the distant months. As compared with last Friday, there is
an advance of 20c(()29 points. The falling off in the receipts
at the ports this week has been largely due to less arrivals at
first

Receipts from the Plantations.—The following table is
prepared for the purpose of indicating tlie actual movement each
.veek from the plantations. Receipts at the outports are sometimes misleading, as they arc made up more largely one year
than another at the expense of the interior stocks. We reach,
therefore, a safer conclusion through a comparative statement
like the following.
In reply to fre<(uent inquiries we will add
that these figures, of course, do not include overland receipts
or Southern consumption; they are simply a statement of the
weekly movement from the plantations of that part of the crop
which finally reaches the market through the outports.

Section 89, page 35, of the laws of the Exchange, provides

disreputable or fraudulent transaction with any p<.'r»on not a

the Hoard of Managers.
In i)urtiuanoe of a complaint thus made, the Supervisory
Committee has been engaged for several days in examining
into the particulars of a charge against John M. Ewen, a
meuil)er of the Exchange, and partner of Ewen Brothers,
vith regard to alleged irregularities in dcalinga in future
deliveries for account of Mrs. Laura Hough,
However, the
documents relative to the matter are said to be so voluminous
that the Committee has not as yet been able to arrivu at a
decision. The result of the investigation, as well as the consequent action of the Board of Managers, is look»d for witl>

much interest by the members. It is reported that beside this
paiticular case before the Board of Supervisors, other women
speculators through Ewen Brothers have come forward witli
eiinilar complaints, but the above-mentioned matter of Mrs.
Hough is the only one before said Board.
The AuorsTA (G.\.) Mri.i.s Filled -with Orders.—We
take the following from the Augusta Eeentng News of
Thursday, December 11
:

know

has turned and that Kood tlmrs are eomin^. 'Cotton
goods Hi"e following the raw eoiton,' said a prominent factory president
on Tuesday miunine, 'and prices are advancing in response tothc active
<lemand and lieeaiise of the low price of goods maintained all sumniur
and until now." A mcetini; of f,ictory presidents was held on the 8rh Inetaut, conii>ri8inif Mr. Hickuiau. of the Craiiltevllle Factory; Mr. .Sib ey,
of the Sibley .fc Lan^ley Mills; .Mr. Phiiiizy, of the AUKU.«ta Factory,
and .Mr, Eslcs, of the Kiui; Mill, and It was unanimuusly determined to
advance) the pi ices of goods one qnart-Ttoa half cent, and the prices on
Hve-bale lots now range about as follows: 44 sheetlnii, 5%c.; 7-8
sheetln»r, 43jc.; 3-4 shining, 3%c.; drills, 6c. and 6'iO. to <i'a".
One of
our mills had a'ready advancett its prices and sold Its jt^ood^ at these
tlgures, and all of the mill pr^-idcntB have now instructed their agents
liere .and in New York to advance the price of goods. All the mills reJiort that they are bare of Roods, and they are ruuninf? ou full time to
ry and keep up with the demand.
"President H. H. Hickman of the Oranltevllle Manufacturing Co.,
«aid the demand for cotton giiods growing out of the low prices had
Been so extraordinary that the over-supply at the mills had been
exhausted. He thought it probable a farther advance would be made
in ten days, Advicoi have been received, Mr. Hickman continuert,
trom the lioston accent of one of our mills to the effect that he was Koing
to New York this week to .-vdvise the agents there to place Southern goods
at 4. .5 and 6 cents, or ^4 of a cent more than the advance agreed upon by
us. He said the competition from Northern goods would not prevent these
tt^ures, and he thought those mills in the South that led off with low
Itrices had enough of it.
I would not bo surprised if the prices suggested are a<lopt(?d iu New York this week. These facts mean, said Mt.
Hickman, that cotton will be scarce and hitrh in the South, and not only
•will the present prices l>e maintained, but there will be other advances.
" Mr. C. H. fhuiizy of the Augusta Factory, said: "For the llrst time in
twelve months I believe the outlook promises better fines. I have not
thought so all along, but I believe now a brighter era la opening up
tli.u tlie tide

ahead of

us.'

Jute Butt.s, BAoaiya, &c.—There has been a good demand
for bagging since our last, and parcels are moving quite freely.
Prices are sleadily maintained, and sellers are not accepting
anything below our quotations, preferring to hold their stocks.
There have been sales of 1,000 rolls various grades at 8\'c. for
\)i lb., 9'<c. for l^X Jb 10c. for 2 lb. and Wic. for standard
grades, llie market for butts has bsen moderately active,
though mostly for parcels to arrive, and there have bsen svles
of some 8,0i)0 bale?, mostly paper grades, though a few lots of
bagging qu^ilities are reported. For spot parcels sellers are
fjuoting l/sC for papar, and 2,?8 <§3><c. for bagging, grades.

below Fort Oglethorpe. A hole was cut through the deck and
heavy streams of water turned on the flame. The steamer put
back, and by the time she arrived at her wharf, shortly after 5
o'clock, the ilre was out. About 25 bales of cotton were probably
burned and scorched. The cargo of the WilUam Crane consisted of

carrying cotton from United States ports, &c.:
-BARRTiaoRB, steamer (Br.), loading at Locust Point, Baltimore, for Liverpool. A tire broke out A. M. of 17th, between decks on steamer
Barrymore. She had on board about 3,000 bales of cotton and
some 50,000 bushels of wheat and corn. Her engagements were
for 4,500 bales of cotton and 80,000 bushels of grain. Up to
9
P. M. of ihe 16th she was si ill taking in grain, and the fire is suppo.sed to have been caused by the accidental upsetting of a lamp
where the cotton was stowed. On investigation it was discovered
that the grain daniHged, about 12,000 bushels of corn, was in one
water-light compartment, and it is said that the balance of the
sKPaln ha,s sufTered very little, if any, iujury. The entire damage is

buaine.ss than in dearer prices. The export demand boa continued quite l>ri!<k, and tlie local dealers, with diiUculty
induced to purchase freely on the evo of tho holidays, have
certainly shown less than the accustomed reserve at this
season. It is far less easy tO purchase desirable lines at prices

wanting in spirit that prices for nearly all posiiions have
turned in favor of buyers, the advances, when occurring, having been mere "spurts" and not at all sustained. Supplies
of white and of yellow have shown some increase, and these
grades have shown less strength than mixed. To-day the

but for barley the demand has
improved, and the bulk of the stock in store is held for higher
prices, checking business at the moment.
Oats have shown an increase of speculative interest, with
prices on an upward scale, while the regular trade lias been
very good. To-day mixed further improved, but white were
no dearer, and the close was quiet at 32?gO. for No. 3 mixed

The general demand at first

iQ brown sheetings and drills, with jobbers, exporters and
converters, and prices are firmer, some brands of Southern
sheetings and drills having been advanced J^c. per yard.
Bleached goods were in fair, though lessened demand, and
prices of leading makes, as Wamsutta, New York Mills, &c.,
were advanced to lOJ^c, while low and medium grades are
more firmly held. Cottonades were more sought for by
Southern and Southwestern jobbers, but denims, tickings,
cheviots and other colored cottons, were mostly quiet, as were
cotton flannels and corset jeaus. Print cloths were in moderate demand and a trifle easier, closing at 3 3-16c. plus 1 per
