In Memoriam

M'BRIDE -- In fond and loving remembrance of our dearly-beloved daughter Aggie, who fell asleep in Jesus, December 9, 1905, and was interred in the family burying-ground, Ballyroney. Till Jesus comes.
  We freebly mind with sorrowing hearts two years ago today,
     When our dear Aggie, much beloved, so peaceful passed away;
  We miss her kind and cheerful voice, and see the vacant chair,
     But there above in the home of love, she dwells with Jesus there.
  We soon shall meet on that happy shore, and never part again,
     When sorrow and pain and death are o'er we shall with Jesus reign.
Fondly remembered by her loving Father, Mother, Sisters and Brothers.

American Stock Manipulation -- Trans Atlantic Press Views -- The New York Bank Return -- Steel Trust

Monday 11.30am -- Little attempt is made in the American Press to disgrace the manipulation of stocks during the past week; indeed, some go so far as to say that its main object has been to strengthen and accelerate public confidence, and so quicken all branches of industry. The conservative element, however, regard it as highly unsafe, holding that manipulation at this juncture for purely window dressing purposes is likely to react disastrously in January.

The heavy liquidation in Wall Street on Saturday suggests to the "Financial News" that the big manipulators had temporarily changed to the bear side.

The best feature in the New York Bank return, indicating a return to the normal, was the decrease of about two millions in the loans.

The Steel Trust is working only 38 furnaces out of 96.

The following is from the article on the Stock Markets dated Saturday evening, in the "Times" of to-day; -- Markets were again rather irregular, with business very quiet. Gilt-edges stocks were a good market, and the demand for Home Railway Stocks continued, with a further appreciable advance in Great Northern and Great Central issues, although the market showed some hesitation towards the close. The American market opened dull, and in the absence of local support prices relapsed slightly, and South African Shares showed an easier tendency at the close, after a firm opening. IN the Foreign market there was a cessation of the recent selling of Russian Bonds, for which some Continental support was forthcoming.
