MONEY MARKET. [SPECIALLY TELEGRAPHED.) LONDON, FRIDAY EVENING, Money is still in demand on short loans, and full rates are required, the general charge varying from 2i to 2i per cent. Discount business remains very light, and the quotation for three months bills does not exceed 2§ to 21 per cent. The supply of capital is short. Ou Tuesday next, how- ever, dividend money will come on the market, and easy rates may then be looked tor. Renewed heaviness was observed on the Stock Exchange. The progress of the elec- tions is viewed with growing dissatisfaction by members of the House, where the Con- servative element greatly predominates. istock. in consequence, continues to be offered, and in a majority of cases quotations again show weakness, but the variations are comparatively slight, and the tendency at the close of business was more favourable than during the earlier hours. It is very probable that inactivity will be the character- istic of the itiarlieti until the elections have been finally completed. Consols 1-16 lower for delivery, 7 15-16 to 81 1-16, and unaltered for the account, at 98 1.16 to 3-16. Reduced and New Three per Cents, 96 to i. The English Railway market opened heavily. Not much was done, but the dis- position was to sell consequently all stocks showed weakness. The dulness yas chiefly attributable to the elections, but attention was also directed to the wet weather, which, whilst of great benefit to agriculture, pro- mises to interfere with the passenger traffic. Towards the close of business the market became steady, the passenger lines much stronger, and there was also enquiry for Caledonian, Great Northern A, and Great "Western. All other stocks showed some re- action from the lowest points. Metropolitan District rose 1 i Great Northern A £ Cale- don, Brighton A, Chatham i North British fell North Western, Midland, North Eastern, t; GreatEastern i; South Eastern 4. 1030 J.

Egyptians were weaker, owing to a fslung olf in demand on French account. Russians were firm, some purchases being effected from Berlin. Turks were rather unsettled, with a weak tendency but French, Italian, and United States issues were firm. South American stocks were mostly neglected.
