Imported for by Henry Clews a co new York sept. 19, Stock Market shows renewed activity Ana strength. The bears however Are not alone in the opinion that the Advance in prices during the last few weeks should almost suffice for the time being. Among the ranks of the bulls there Are two classes who incline to the same View first the conservatives who think that present prices Are Well up to the pre sent intrinsic value of stocks and doubt the expediency of forcing up values to a Point at which the invest ment demand would be checked and at which foreign holders under the pressure of an american Drain of Gold might sell out up on new York and a second class Are those who have unloaded Large lines of Long Stock and Are actuated by the purely Specula Tive purpose of being Able to buy in again at a lower Range of prices. Former of these two classes is simply quiescent the latter have been using their influence directly and indirectly to depress prices. For the rest the Market May be said to consist of the sanguine and demonstrative class of who Are always optimistic Over estimating favourable factors and underestimating unfavourable ones and who act upon prospects rather than existing facts. When there is a Large outside interest in the is the Case at class of operators prove an important element for they All act in the same direction so Long As they Are Able to maintain their margins and it is therefore difficult to break the Force of their support. At pres ent the forces of the Market Are divided into these unqualified bulls on the one Side Aud the qualified bulls and the professional bears on the other. The result of such a contest under present conditions cannot be much other than a succession of slight fluctuations with Little gain for either the one party or the other. In judging what May be the out come of this contest it is important not to lose sight of the fact that the extreme bulls have in View a Prospect which if realized will mean a More Active and More prosperous condition of business Aud Enterprise than exists at present. We Are in the midst of a progressive improve ment and each Day brings some new stimulus to the buoyancy of the prevailing Boom. Within the past week for instance we have had a govern ment crop report of unexpectedly High of the condition of the unharvested cereals Large increases in the earnings of the railroads the beginnings of imports of Gold from the continent of Europe and a Bank statement favourable to ease Money and in the meantime there Are no unfavourable circumstances appearing while the Market was wholly unaffected by the Mitylene incident. In this sense it May be said that much of the bulling comes from the course of events and in any Case it cannot be denied that such a favouring Drift of occurrences strongly reinforces the sanguine Bull party while it induces caution on the other the Market. This tendency might be less important if there were the caution usual at this season of the year about the course of the Money Market but the Reflux of Gold from Europe having already set in the Money prospects Are an element of encouragement rather than discouragement.
