The decision of tho Court of Appeals In tho case of tlio Xorth River Sugar Refining Company necessitates a dissolution of tho existing nrrangemont anil the formation of n new organization. In pursuance of the reorganization agreement of July 13th, 1890, tho undersigned, constituting tho Commlttt.ec- of Corttilcato Holders therehy appointed, having curerully considered the subject, make tho following report, and submit tlio following plan: REPORT. Messrs. Kidder, Pnabody it Co., as members of that Committee, have employed the llrm of Messrs. DeloltLe, Dover, GrlftHlia ,fc Co., cliartered accountants of London, England, to examine the balance sheets of the various Sugar Kellning Coiniianlesfrom tho beginning, October 1st, 1S87, to Septemlior 1st, 1890. (See report attached.) Summary of apiicuded Accountauts; Reports. Tlio original organization was on the basis of a contribution of all tho Sugar Hollaing properties and their appliances, including tho good-will. In order to provide the necessary working capital, 8il�, OOO.OOc was borrowed. Slnco the organization there have been paid in cash from earnings dividends at the ralo of 10 por cent, per annum, down to July 1st, 1890, amounting to 811,(>OO,U0�.5O, unci there remained on hand in cash nasetB and Investments, above liabilities, on, September 1st, 1800, a surplus of moro than 8811,600.000. Also, with some unimportant exceptions, thy Refineries have continued to hold their original plants, Bonio have purchased additional real estate, and extensive additions and ltn-provemontB have been made to buildings nnd machinery. Valuable patouts havo also been acquired. The expenditure in additions to plants exceed the sales of plant by moro than IB�,750,000. PLAN. We submit the following plan, which lias the approval of eminent counsel, as per certificate herewith. All the properties now represented by the certificates of tho Sugar Reflnerlcs Companies will be acquired by a New Jersey corporation to be called The American Sugar Roflning Compnny." The directors of this corporation for the first year will bo as follows: H. 0. HAVEMEYER, J. E. SEARLE3, JR., T. A. HAVEMEYER, WM. DICK, F, O. MATTHIKSSEN, J.B.THOMAS, GEO. 0. MAGOUK. Tho capital of this corporation will be $50,000,000, consisting of 825,000,000 of 7 per cent. Oumulativo Preferred Stock. 25,000,000 of Common Stock. Tho shares of the American Sugar Refining Co. will be exchanged, share for sharo, for Central Trust Company receipts, representing certificates, one-half in preferred shores and one-half in common shares. Each holder of the Central Trust Co. reoelpts for 100 shares (or fraotlons thereof in proportion) will receive, bo sliares of tho American Sugar Refining Co. 7 per cent. Cumulative Preferred Stock, bo shares of tho American Sugar Refining Co. Common Stook, and In addition, 6 por cent, in cash (#600). In order to provide for all possible future contingencies, bonds to an amount not exceeding $10,-000,000, at a rate of interest not to exceed 0 por cent., to bo secured by a mortgage of active refineries, will bo provided for, to be used only as occasion eliall requlro. Upon completion of the plan, and after tho distribution of the above 5 per cent, in cash, it is estimated that the American Sugar Refining Co. will oommonco operations.with cash assets and investments exceeding 0,000,000 (over 87,000,000 will be In cash and available caBh assots) with tho power to raise upon mortgage 810,000,000 additional, if required. 1 All certificate holders who desire to participate in this plan may deposit their certificates at once with tho Contral Trust Co., when they will receive in exchango the Central TruBt Co. rocolpts, which are, in turn, exchangeable for the Btock of the new company. The time for deposit of certificates is limited to December 1st, 1890. New York, Oot. 29,1800. [Signed] TI1EO. A. HAVEMEYER, F. 0. MATTH1ESSEN, JNO. E. SEARLES, JR., JOSEPH B. THOMAS, JUL. A.

Stocks wore dull and lowor as a rule. Sugar and tlio coppers wero tho trading specialties, tlio formor losing % on opening, at 07%, declined to G<t%, and tlion stiffened to eloso at liGVi, a net loss of 2% points. Atchison was unchanged, at 33V2 ; tho 4s gaming Vs, to 82; the incomes closing without change, atCfiVe. Boston & Albany held 198V*, tho rights 21%. Moxicftn Central was % lower, at23V8; New York & New England softened Va, toil, while Union Pacific was neglected at 40%, no change. Boll Telephone was off Vj , to 225%. Lamson sold at 29 Va. Bay Stato Gas was V� higher, at 81%, and Illinois Stool- % up, at 98%. Thomson-Houston Elootric softened %, to 51, the preferred holding 27Va. Land stocks woro not quotod, save for West End, which showed no change from yesterday's last sale of 2*a/3. In coppers Atlantic lost V4, to 17Y8; Calumet & Hecla gained 2Va points, to 277% i Boston & Montana declined from 40% to 45Va, rallying to close at 45%, off just a point. Frankltnhe!dlO% ;Kearsargewasup a point to IS. National eased Va, to IVa. Oscoolasoftened from 35 to 33%, closing up %, at 34%, a net drop of %. Tamarack was unchanged at 100. Wnll st. was devoid of excitement. Opening prices carne irregular and with slight cfiangos from last night's prices, and in tlio early dealings somo firmnoss was shown in the Grangers and Chicago Gas, hut this soon gave way to a drooping tendency. The reservation of tho decision in tho Sugar Trust case was interpreted as unfavorable to tho interests of the certificate holders and tno traders and professionals sold tho stock down from 07% last oveniug to 04Vs. Tho same sort of prossure was exerted against Reading, though tliero was a pretense that long selling had boen detected, and from 3CV4 it settled down to S&�i. The bank statoment was issued unusually early,'however, and it sliowod an unexpected increase in the surplus rosorvo, by which It is again lifted abovo the requirements of tho 25 per cent, rule, and tho traders thon wont into cover some of the short contraots put out earlier in the moaning, with the result of causing a partial rally all along the line, nnd Sugar rose about I nnd Reading % per cent., while the losses in the remainder of the list were nearly wiped out. The close was dull, but firm at tho improvement. Railroad bonds were fairly aotive during the sossion, the most attention being paid to the Kansas and Texas issuos, which displayed some strength, but the general list was rather hoavy nnd the important final changes aro generally declines. The sales reached $609,000.! Colorado Midland firsts lost lVa, at IO7V2: Union Pacific 4% por centsl%,at781,4 ; Reading seconds incomes 2%, at42yaj and Union Pacifio, Denver & Gulf firsts 1%, at 80%. Denver & Rio Grande fives, on the othor hand, rose 1, to 83Va : and Duluth, Soutli Shore & Atlantic firsts 1, to 00. Tho situation is practically unchanged, and while sharp rallies are likely at any moment as a result of over short soiling, a strong concentrated movement is not looked for until conditions aro such as to change public sentiment. Monpy continues a prominent factor and rates are firmly held. Tho November disbursements in Boston are figured 83,057,040 against $3,078,404 for the same period last year. Interest 1b due and payable in Now York on tho bonds of railroads and similar corporations (having a par value of 8593,067,938) amounting to s?16,-021,544, an increase of 8.45 percent,. Dividends are also payable this month on noarly 5400,000,000 stock, amounting to S7.299,-140, making tho total intorest and dividend payments $23,320,090, an inoroaso of $1,-952,350 ovor last year. As tho city of Now York disburses ovor $2,000,000 in payment of intorost on its funded debt, it is not au overestimate to place tho total disbursements this month on account of interest and dividends at about $30,000,000. This, with a gradual return of money from the West ought to gradually soften ratos from now on. Gossip is rather flat. An insider in Suj said lust night: "Tho statemont from Mr. Searlos clearly shows that, utider the management of tho. parties who aro named as directors in the new company, the Trust lias made during the past three years over GO per cent, upon its capital, and it would soom thatthe new company, starting with awork-ing capital of over $9,000,000 as against tho old company with nothing, should be amply successful." Soveral largo operators who havo been active traders in sugar certificates have decided to dovoto thoir attention hereafter to othor stocks. One of tlfem talked in this vein last evening: "It is very plain that during tho process of reorganization it will be dangerous to sell sugar certificates short and there aro so many tilings to be taken into consideration when figuring on the bull side of it that it is especially dangerous now. to go long. Therefore 1 have decided to let ft alone. "I believe, however, from information which haB guidbd me rightly in the past, that a receiver, if not two receivers, will bo appointed next week; and if two, one representing the plaintiff in tho Cameron suit and one tho defendants. Tlio property onco in a receiver's hands will not bo apt to invite much buying of it. Asido from this I do not like tho $10,000,-000 mortgage foaturo of the reorganization plan. Insiders will secure through it a prior lien on tho property, and thoso insiders havo horotoforo been too active in speculating in the certificates to make me think the new stock is safe with thoso insiders, the holders of the bonds." A largo interest in Sugar thinks that any shareholder should be fully satisfied with the statement by tho Sugar Trust, Tho item of debts due to the company 011 acceptances and open accounts Is small, for the reason that tho period in which tlio statement wns made up was not tho active season. It is probable that last Juno or July the item was nearly donblo the unit now given, Tlio item of unoxpired insurance premiums is one tierfootly woll understood by tho trade. It represents an insurance covering II long period, in order to obtain lower rates. Tho insurance is charged off every mouth, but in case tho insurance should bo cancelled tho insurance companies would pay back in proportion to the length of policy remaining. Tlio liabilities for borrowed money nnd on open accounts of 88,003,290 probably represent raw sugar, but on Nov. 80 this had been reduced to about $5,000,000. Sugar is sold on 30 days credit. As to losses there are practically none; thoy will not amount to one-tenth of 1 per cent, throughout the year. "The vital point concerning the trust is not tho tariff; that is all right. It is not present litigation, which, while annoying, is not detrimental to the life. The vital quostlon is as to who will get up on the box and do tho driving, and this will bo ll. O. Hnvemeyer, the ablest man that could be selected. -Much-credit should also be given to Mr. Magoun for both his ability and fidelity," "It is learned from an official source that earnings lor first nine mouths of presentcal-enilnr year were approximately 81,000,000. Of this ,520,400,000 of earnings certificate holders aro entitled to know what pnrt has been earned by refining and what part by speculations in raw sugar. It is trust-worthily stated that in a certain three months tho trust cleared $5,000,000 from its operations in sugar. All know that speculations in raw material or finished products is not legitimately within the province of a manufacturing concern. If speculation is to be ont.inuod with the industry that fact should be clearly stated. "It is authoritatively stated that the SI 0,000,000 borrowed consisted principally or stocks on hand hills receivable unci cash, the property of .several of tho firms which went, into the trust. For these the trust issued its obligations to the sellors of the constituent concerns. A cerium cash amount was also borrowed from the heaviest capitalists who were active in forming tho trust. All these obligations have been paid and present indebtedness is duo entirely to hanks and other money lenders having no connection with the Trust. Legal advisors of Trust are divided its to reorganizing under a New Jersey or Connecticut charter, while the attorney-general contends that-it should take place under laws of State of New York."-[New York Sun. Here is somo sound, practical reading from the monthly circular of F. H. Prince & Co.: The outlook for the investor, from a purely Ametl-can standpoint, was never more propitious than now. Trices aro being forced down by foreign liqui-da'.ion to points tar below the iatrlnnic and cash values which could be represented by inventories of Iho assets behind many stock market securities. i;arni!ij:s for the moment asLU-, Mew York Central stork stands for u good deal more of visible real estate and rullroad machinery than is represented in u uiutket piiie of glOO per share. Lake Shore lias no fictitious value at less thanjtllO; inure than this is in file roadbed and property ot the company, to say nothing of a geographical position which enables this line to haul a ton of freight at a lower tost per inlio Chan any other road ia Uie world. lUuun I'acliic ut �46 is selling tor far less than the surplus income, laud moneys and sinking funds put into tliu property since the suspension of dividends.

Wliorb combinations or consolidations ni'o possible, ruinous competition for any great length of tlmo Is improbable Low prices In the stfcoit market aro tho greatest inoontivos to railway consolidations. Any lasting alliance between Atchison, Alton nnd Missouri Paciilc was naturally iniposslblo of consummation when,all these stocks wero selling nt'round prohil-unis abovo glOO per share; but when one has been forced to compromise with its creditors, another lias been a heavy btirdenupon tho personal fortunes of its directors, and tho third cries out'for government protection, tho way to union and strength Is much clearer anil shorter, Already evidenco la cropping out that tlio gonoral lack of support to railway shares in the market is by mutual understanding between important railroad Interests having a common ond in view. There la no lack of brain or financial brawn In tho railway managements of this country; tlio highest solaries are paid, and the keenest mludd' commanded by tlio transportation Interests. Tho Union I'aciilo, representing 0250,000,000 of capital and an oarning capacity ot $50,000,000, allies Itself with tho Chicago & Northwestern nnd Vaudorbllt intor-eats, reaching to tho Atlantic seaboard; a combination representing more than �000,000,000 of capital and moro than J-S160,000,000 of an. ntutl grosB earning. Tito three greatest railway systems of the world, measured either by tho extent of territory drained or tho miles of track oporated, and together representing nearly ono-flfth of- the country's mileage, combine in a strong railway association in tlio Southwest. The Chicago, Burlington �fc Qulncy milnagonient, financially the ablest in the country, appears to bo in treaty at Ht. Paul with the Great Northern, which has tho moat pro-gresalve management of any road in tho conntry. The Chicago, Rock Island & l'aclflo has boon one of tho centrnl disturbing foctors in tho whole Western situation, but its movement of late, both EiiBt and West, has been Boniowhat inyBterlous. Tlio prosl-' dent of tho Rock Island, with several of tho Roclc Island ofllcials, has quietly gono with tho presUtont of tho liio Grande Western upon a tour.of railway inspection, and tliero aro Intimations of movements which' may mnko Rook Island at �75 look cheap when one looks backward from 1891. The times are rapidly ripening for great movements upon the railway chessboard which will far ovor-Bhadow tho West Shoro purchaso.which so eloctrlfled tho stock markets in 1884." According to I. L. Rico, wlien tho Reading syndicate was formed there was affiliated witli it a pool for trading purposes in which somo of the syndicate mombors had an interest. Later tho syndicate members thought it unadvisablo that thoro should bo affiliated with them a purely spooulativo pool, as their interests woro of a permanent nature, so tho pool aotunlly stopped operations some time ago. Yesterday in further deforonce to syndicate's wishes, tho pool dissolvod ontiroly and its members paid for thoir stock. The Pacific Mail Company is building two new vessels of 2000 tons each out 01 the earnings of tho company. Tho company has .$001,000 cash in bank in Now York city; it has paid $210,000 on account of these two'vessels and has about $360,000 in bank moro than is necossary to finish payment for thorn. Tho vossels havo beon built to accommodate tho trado along the north coasts of Contral America and Soutli America, connecting three timos a month afrAspinwall with the company's steamers from Now York.

The Bay State Gas Company pays today the semi-annual intorest on its..?2,000,00() 7 per cent, incomo bonds, 70,000. Tho company has quick assots, mostly cash,'of $500,000.

Next spring the company proposes to expend some $250,000 in tho enlargement of its property ut Commercial Point, which will enablo it to soil its North End works.

Foster is dronpod from tho Iioard of directors of the new sugar combination, lie is still a large holder of West End stocks and a director in the West End Street Railway Company. Both he and Capt. Thomas have shown excellent discretion in con verting a part of their bigprofitsin Sugar into the solid local securities of the West End aggregatl on.-[Beacon. I. & S. Worniser cabled, in answer to inquiries from London and Paris respecting Wall st. affairs, that speculation was on tlio mend, and that the worst being over, thoy anticipated improvement. The office of the Frenchman's Bay Land Company has been removed from 1!) to 81 Milk st. ^Semi-annual settling day at the Bank of England; hence no London quotations. past woek nrift shipping #2,080,000, a not loss of $918,000. ThoSo banks shipped 8093,000 mote cu'rroncy than they rciceivod, in addition to which thoy sustained a loss of S225.000 in gold. One bank sent $160,-000 gold to Philadelphia, and $75,000 gold wont South in addition. The gold shipments woro all of coin, owing to tliosoaroity of gold certificates and small currency. Tho shipments of curroncy woro chiofiy to tho West, but Alabama poiirts also drew for largo amounts. Included in the rocoipts of currency aro deposits of $300,000 in two banks by local corporations which havo received tho currenoy from interior points. Othorwiso tho receipts havo boon light. Tho Chronicle figures a gain to Now York banks tho past weok of $18,173,000 and a loss of $21,103,000, a.not loss of $2,090,000. Tho money market oontinues to work very close. The demand from tho West for funds has continuod, and tho banks havo boen obliged to ship considerable amounts of currency in satisfaction of that demand. Treasury operations have takon somo monoy out of tlio markot, tho offerings of 4% per cents having beon small until yesterday, when noarly $500,000 was takon. A return flow from tho South and East has boen in progress, offsetting to an extont tho loss o� tho othor items. Tho woek ends with tho banks somo millions pooror in their reserves. As a result tho rato for bankers' balances advanced yesterday to 80 per cent. Renewals aro mado at (! por. cent., chieily for 00 days and maturing at the ond of tho yoar. No now contracts are being mado on time. Tho fooling among lenders is that thoro will bo no ease in. rates until tho hanks accumulate larger reserves, and this must bo naturally a slow process. Tliero is absolutely no demand from city institutions for commercial paper, and tho inquiry from out of town is light. Tho Bank of England lost �158,000 during tho weok, occasioned by shipments to the interior of �219,000 and Egypt �25,000. Importsfrom Australia and Portugal woro �80.000.

Tho bank statement came with an increase in tho resorvo, a loss in deposits and specie, and a hoavy . contraction of loans. Yostorday tlio government deposited with depository banks in New York $3,800,000, but this is not roflectod in tho report today.

Quotations in tlie Boston, Now York and Ohioago Markets. In noarly all linos of businoss tho past week, trado has boon of a quiet, steady nature with valuos woll maintained. As it is botweon seasons, tho freo movement o� goods whioh provails at prosent is unusual, and civos promiso of t?reat activity tho first of next month. Tho mills throughout tho Stato aro, with ono or two exceptions, running on full tluio, and are consuming thoir stocks rapi dly. This is particularly truo of tho shoo faotorios, and tho paper, worsted and dress goods mills. Thoro has beon a slight im/jrovomont noticed in tho domand for loathor, but it will take from two to throo wookB boforo manufaoturors aro again forced to buy. They will bogln to fill thoir spring orders about tho middle of tho month, and none of them havo stock sufficient to last much beyond Dec. 1. Thoro is a do xnand at nrcsont . for solo loathor strong'Oiiough to keop stocks from acoumu lating. Hides have weakened a trifle, but thd decline from tho highest point can be recovered us soon as tho domand improves. There has boon moro buying of kip, grain aud splits at small concessions on only good-sized orders. Many largo contracts for boots and shoes havo been closed tho past woek. .lobbors aro accepting prices as thoy at lengths understand tho situation. Tho do-olino ir not sufficient to chango quotations. Tho prlcos at which shoos aro now selling do notcovor tho increased cost. The orders for spring goods aro larger than was ox. pected, and tho factories aro finding oousld orablo difficulty in filling thorn. There is still a good movomont in all grades of wool. But few changes are noted in quotations. Tho demnnd for Ohio and Michigan wool is very strong and tho sur ply is hardly sufficient to moot ft. Dealers have tho host of tho mar ket and aro making evory oil'ort to maintain tho prosont condition, Toxns and Oregon wools proiniso to bo in bettor domand bocauso of tho oxolusion of wools by tlio tariff. An Improvement is already noticed in thorn. California and Territory wools aro still firm, and comprise tho major part of tho sales. Worsted mills aro taking all the long staple wools that aro offered. Prloos havo not ns yet boon established at Melbourne because there havo boon such small quantities of wool ofl'orod for sttlo. Wool is in a romarkably strong position. It cannot weaken under a moderate domand with as light a supply as tbore is at prosont. Tho rubber market is demoralized and pricos aro low. Manufaoturors aro not buying freely. Thoro is a good movement in rubber goods. Tlio mills aro reputed slow in filling thoir ordors and aro thus on. dcavorlng to improvo tho domand and advance prices. Thoro is a good movomont in all linos of dry goods. Print cloths havo improvod, and stocks show a slight falling off, witli a bettor demand. Cotton goods aro in good request. and prloos on Homo grades have boen advanced. Prints aro quiotor and values havo weakened. Woollens and worsteds are firm, with quotations woll maintained.
