FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL The Stock Market Depressed and Prices Sagging. GOLD 113 1-3 A 113 5-8. Money on Call 3 and 3 1-2 Per Cent?Gov ernment Bonds Firm?Railway Bonds Easier?Coal Slocks Unsettled? Foreign Exchange Steady. Wall Strkrt, 1 WXDXKSD-AYf May IT?0 P. M. ( It yesterday's stagnant market was noi exactly a weather breeder it at loast creeled a breexo to day?an III wind that blow nobody good but the bears, who prob ably regarded it ad tho gentlest ol xophy rs. Opening prices of the usual speculatlves were not a whit woi^e than the closing prices of tho day before, But they speedily comment eU to weaken under tho pressure of various circumstances, as does a sick man with a complication of maladies. I.ake Shore made a bold start at 54, but almost Imme diately fell away under tho report of a more unfavora ble condition of tho Commodore's health and tho be lief that the Osborn and Henry Smith partlos were sup plying the market with stock. Tho result was oven tually to carry the quotation down to S3, lrora which It itapgered up l4' per cent at the finish on tho purchase* of such ephemeral shorts as make It a rule to close up contracts with the day's business. Western Union, which lias been stubbornly Arm for ?omo days buck, despite the fact that Jny Oould lias been feeding the market with tho cash stock purchased ky him against sellers' options, slowly gave way under vhe pressure, which was rendered still hcavior by tho ?elief that the rival Atlantic and 1'aciilc concern would ihortly announco a further cutting in rates. There is to doubt that this will bo dono to morrow, and It will *ko the fchapo of a decrease of from live to twenty-live tents per message to all points not yet reduced, and will particularly a'lect tho service of New York city, Brooklyn and Jersey City, as ratos to and withiu these places will be charged at twonty cents for teu words and one cent lor each additional word, In lieu ol twenty-iivo cents and two cents for each addi tional won), as now prevails. This further cheapen ing of tolls, wo learn from the best authority, U in conscqucnco of tlie largely Increased businoss and receipts which have accrued to the company from the previous reduction. Whatever may be tho result to Itockholders, mere Is no question but that the public trill ho greatly the gainer, and It is only necessary to tatahlif U a confidence in the permanency of those ro iucuon* to secure lor Uencral Kckcrt tho gratitude of tho community. For a wonder Union Pacific woko up from its slumber ind was quite skittish for a time to the extent of aome 1 600 shares of stock. This ninount was marketed on a ileclino from 02 '* to 6i>>?, at which figure Oould's tlh r ryo put in an appearance and an end totliede jline at the same time. It was supposed that tho stock vas soM lor Boston account. Pacific Mail, which is proverbially cantankerous, ex blhitod this quality today by selling up instead of town, it having o|>oncd at -0v4 with a riso to 21at ihe close Shares were in demand for delivery and lor the purposes ol transfer, the books closing for election on Saturday, and as high as 1-10 per day was paid lor tho use of thn stock llailier a sharp trick was at tempted to played by Jay Oould to prevent tho transfer of shares which ho hud previously sold into the names of other partus. It seems that a quuntity Df stock stauuing in the name ol W. K. Conner (Oould s /Mum) were to day presented for tranifer, when tho ipplicnnt was greeted with the inloruinlion that there wore no blank certificates ready to be Issued In placo of the surrendered ones, nud moroovtfr tliut tho proper Dlllcial to sign tho same was out of town; henco the Bolder of the stock would necessarily havo to leave It and lay out or its money value or take It away without transfer, and useless to him for voting purposes. It was statod that tho Ooverning Committee would bold a meeting this afternoon, which by resolu tion would compel Mr. Connor, under the rules of the Board, to lurnlsh proxies to such i>artles as were bond fide holders of stock standing in his name. Perhaps of the w hole market Delaware and Lacka wanna and New Jersey Central betrayed the greatest veukness, tho former declining from loo*, to 105'4, ind the latter from t?l4, to although there was a fractional rally in the first and n ono per cent recovery In the second at the closet. The market closed with a slight Improvement, but feverish and uncertain us to tho future. Tll? SALBS TO-nAT. The transactions at tho Stock Exchange to-day ag gregated 129,948 shares.

As an evidence of an improved fooling here In Now York toward mining investments a correspondent In stances the case of a company which he names and wl.ich bad within a lew days and with little effort raised a sutltcicnt capital for all ibis rear's work in two of their mines. This, however, does not conclusively establish the point sought to bo made, inasmuch as the properties in question were nearly all located In tho lutie county ot Gilpin, wliero tbero are abundant mill ing and railroad facilities and no cash was required for tho purchase of machinery or the construction of houses. In fact, the property itself was already partially devolopod and was contributed by its owner, a wealthy New Yorker, who required no money. Instances Uke this we be liovo lo bo rare, the majority of mining properties oilereil hero being located in remoter parts of our country and held by parties who require large cash payments lor tlw land as well as lor working capital. Hull wu admit that there is a slightly Improved fuollng toward mining investments, but only the best clasi of properties will be noticed, and oven those must have a good New York Indorsement at the start. We are long ?nice done with wiidcit mining. MKMOKAMtA.

Tlio dealers in sSouthoru bonds believe in this action ol the Oorernlng Committee in regard to Louisiana, that they see a millennium dawn for Flondas, Alabama*, Georgian and oilier cl.uises now ruled oil' tho caU for various reru-ou?, which wero principally stated by lb* Hbrald yost*rday.
