LOCAL finance. I [rT OVIL financial editor. I CARDIFF, Tuesdat. Businew wan again reported dull toJay. but the transactions recorded numbered rather more than yesterday. All the Looai Railt; were ottered, with very little result. Buyers are holding off, and only one transaction was returned. An idea is abroad that active markets will not be realised till the turn of the year. Quiet markets are expected in 8.peculative stocks and shares on the London Exchange and however remote the psychological connre- tion between the Kaffir Cirous and, say. Bute Dry Dock or Rhynmcy Ordinary at Cardiff may appear, quiet markets in London would mean quiet markets here. This, then, is what the concensus of opinion leads one to expect, but it ie, a8 the veriest novice knows, a very worn truism that it is the unexpected nearly always happens in Stock Exchange matters, and for ourselves we de<"1ille to prophesy. In Rails the heavy lines have apain put on an oil-round improvement, and look as If tliey were on the upwarcf track. OtherwUse, the market i6 unchanged. London and Provincial Bank New Shares were in request, and changed h: d. at the middle price, though otherwise shares had a arooping tendency. Bristol Gas were up, and Newport "C" Seven per Cent, were done above the middle figure. In Coal North's Ordinary were off oolour and lower, business being done at the bottom. Bute Dry Dodcs were better, with more buyers about at the same price (571), but, busi- ness being done within the quotations, prices were not changed. Despite the favourable report. Mordey and Carney Shares (£10 paid) were (lOOO .at 14—the lower figure. Mordey ana Carneys fteMn to furnish an example, in a small way, of what has occurred in Rhymney Kails, The recent advance has arisen from anticipatory purchases, and an idea seems to have got abroad that the dividend would be at an en higher rate than 10 per cent. The Mining Market was steady throughout the d.y, .k though -I-- were slightly easier at the I-, an 4d--m was m-kz on moat of the shares chicoy favoured at Car- diff, PríN'8 for the day. together with last night e otowng quotations, will be found in anotlier place.
