A OTRAL DECLINE REPORTED. Especially Among the Villard Stocks. The Market Closed at Bottom The Mtoek Market. By Associated Press. 1 NKW YOKK, Nov. 11 A. M. Blocks opened ftt 1 and 2 points higher, following the lead of London. They became weak on large scales, declining steadily, for a short time, and then rallied making material gains all along the line. Churlea M. Whitney, a prominent member of the exchange has just suspended. There was a larger attendance of brokers on the floor of .the Exchange thin morning than for years. Every stock on the list had crowds of brokers trying to trade in it. When the mar- ket opened the scene was one of con- fusion and excitement. Cables re- porting an advance of 2 to 3 per cent, in London received before the opening caused the brokers to take the bull Bide, and a disposition to buy was shown all around. The largest crowds were in St. Paul, which at first was offered at 43, and then sold at when a heavy and unexpected selling by London drove the price down to The general list followed, and in a few moments the weakness of yesterday was evident, but heavy buying soon began to come in, and on active business an upward movement was resumed. Sugar opened up at an advance of on the appointment of H. O. Have- meyer, S. V. White and General Slo- cuin as receivers, and moved up to 57, and then reacted to 55, but soon once more was selling at 57. North American was the weak point In the market, opening at 27K. and in six minutes declined to and then alowly advanced to 24. A motion for judgment was reserved and the injunction will bo superseded as soon as the receivers take charge. Villard stocks seemed to bear the brunt of tin early attack. Northern Pacific preferred, showed a loss of three and Western Union two. Low prices brought more buying, however, and forced the market up and a smart rally took place. The strongest steck on the list was Union Pacific, which failed to go below the opening figure, and with a rally advanced to 48, against 44 at the opening. The rest of the list generally regained the early losses and in almost everything but VillardH, fractional advances were scored. The market at 11 was very stiff, but unsettled. The market rallied on the receipt of a private cable announcing that in gold was on the way to London from the continent and th.it money was easy in that center. The Vanderbilt brokers are heavy buyers of Union Pacific. At 2 o'clock there was a panic among the holders of Villlard stocks, and prices for North American and Northern Pacific had collapsed. One broker sold shares of North American, and shares were sold by other brokers, cauwing a decline of 8 jwrcent. Northern Pacific preferred lias already declined per cent, since the opening. The failure of Decker, Powell Co. was announced on the Stock change. At the failure of David Rich mood was announced on the Stock Exchange. Trading in stocks after 12 was marked by the apparent withdrawalo( nil support and special vicious attacks by the boars upon the Villards, which brought about the most rapid and dis- astrous drop of the present decline. The forces of the bears were concen- trated against Northern Pacific pre- ferred, and that stock before 2 M. had been forced off over 10 per cent., reaching 55, against at noon. The rest of the market sympathized to some extent, St. Paul showing the most weakness outside of the Villards. It dropped to 46% from 48, and all the active stocks are losing probably as much. There was a fractional re- action in the general list toward 1 P.M., but a steady drop in Northern Pacific preferred, accompanied by rumors of the noted Villard House be- ing in financial difficulties. The en- tire list soon became demoralized, and the losses from noon figures reached an average of from 1 to 3 and there was a perfect panic in Villards and Northern Pacific. Common lost from to while Worth American dropped to The market showed 'some strength toward delivery hour and Northern Pacific preferred rose to but at the market was act- ive and weak, with most of the lists at the lowest prices the day. Stocks remained very active in the last hour, with heavy sales under the rule, undoubtedly to demoralize some of the speculators. North American touched 18% and sugar, which had sold at 58, dropped to 64. The pres- sure abated towards the close and a few marked recoveries took place, St. Paul and Union Pacific being the most conspicuous. The market closed firm at the lowest prices of the day. BOSTON, Nov. desperate, but unsuccessful, effort was made upon the part of the bulls to advance stocks this morning, as fears were enter- tained that a further decline would lead to an actual panic. The quota- tions opened about 2 per cent, higher than last night as a rule. A further slight improvement wns wade, when there came the failure of a prominent Wall street house, and prices fell off. The trade changed for the better again, and by 12 o'clock prices were near those of the opening. At 1 o'clock the market was firm. PHILADELPHIA, Nov. stock brokerage firm of Narr Friend has suspended. They say their embar- rassment is caused by the continued drains produced by the active market of the past ten days. The firm hopes the suspension will be only temporary. They are unable as yet to make a statement of their assets and liabil- ities, but it is thought they will be heavy. LONDON, Nov. stock mar- ket opened feverish. Nearly every- body was buying to close their bear accounts, money is much easier, owing to the rumor that much gold has gone into the bunk of England. At P. M. the tone of the market was better compared with last night's closing prices. Consols for both money and account show an advance of Canadian Pacific 1 Erie Illinois Central 4, and New York Central 1. At P. M. the stock market was more quiet and prices steady. The accounts have been pretty well ar- ranged It reveals several stocks in a bear position. Rates for the continua- tion of loans are much lower. Only one failure thns far is reported and that one is of a small firm of brokers. At the close the prices of consols for both money and account, com- pared with the prices at p. M., were unchanged.

By Cable and Associated Press.] LONDON, Nov. collision oc- curred to-day on the Great Western Railway at Norton Fitzwarren station, near Taunton, between a freight and special train from Plymouth convey- ing passengers from the steamer Nor- bam Castle, just arrived at Plymouth, from Cape of Good Hope. Ten per- sons were killed and eight injured. Tho collision, which occurred at 2 o'clock this morning, was caused by the negligence of the signal man.

Failures. By Associated Press.] NEW YOKK, Nov. assign- ment is reported of John T. Walker, Son Co., importers of silks, etc. They are rated by R. G. Dunns Co. at over The cause of the failure of Walker Son was tho inability of Nightingale Bros. Knight, silk manufacturers of Patterson, to liquidate their liabilities to the firm. According to assignee Rytes the Patterson firm owes the estate of John Walker Son of which was overdue. The active capital of Walker Son for two yeara has been so they were unable to withstand the loss. Owing to a tight market and the suspension concerning silk paper, caused by sev- eral recent failures, the firm was un- able to get their usual accommoda- tions and suspended payment. Their liabilities are with nominal assets of composed of in merchandise and worth of accounts and bills receivable, of which over is due from the firm of Nightingale Bros. Knight.
