Natural Heaviness Prevails
in Stock Market.
WHEAT EEPOET DISAPPOINTS

Missouri Pncinc Stock Continues
Weai Steel Business in Gencrnl
Is Holding Its Own.
New York. April 10 All things con
sidered, the moderate heaviness that pre
vailed in the stock market to-day -was
in no 'way unnatural. The probability
that the business week would be short
ened by the closing of the stock exchange
on Good Friday and the daj following
was sufficient in and of itself to cause
some selling. The declining movement
was helped, too. bj a recurrence of par
ticular weakness in Missouri Pacific stock.
No one knows now any more than at
any time in the last month what is going
on in the affairs of the Missouri Pacific
company. The management appears to
find difficulty in getting a president; opin
ion is unsettled as to just where control
of the company rests, and there is a
general Idea that the company must make
some financial sacrifices before its af
fairs are thoroughly rehabilitated
The governments April winter wheat
report, published this morning, did not
quite warrant the too optimstic fore
casts concerning it in which Wall street
has indulged itself in the last fortnight.
As it is, every one knows that conditions
since April 1 have been calculated to
favor the growth of grain exceedingly,
and that the present winter wheat area
is rrlore than l.OCO.OOO acres greater than
it was last year
Steel Business Continues Good.
The figures of unfilled orders of the
Steel Corporation on hand at the end of
March were officially stated as being 45,
000 tons greater than at the end of Feb
ruary, although this is a relative de
crease as compared with the statements
showed at the end of February and Jan
uary. One explanation of the decline is
of course, that the steel mills were work
ing more rapidlv last month than they
were in the two preceding periods, and,
although it must be conceded that new
orders have not recentlv been flowing into
the books of the Steel Corporation with
the same rush that they did earlier in
the jear, it is vet apparent that the
steel business Is In general holding its
own very satisfactorily.
The steel companies would have orders
enough if business confidence over the
country could be restored by a cessation
or legal and political harassment of cor
poratlons. An incident making for such
a renewal of confidence was clearlv
enough the decision handed down after
the close of business hours last Saturday
afternoon by the same tribunal that pro
nounced an adverse judgment against the
isianaard oil Company, in the case now
on appeal to the Supreme Court in which
it was held that the action of the State
or iimnesota in making a wide cut
railway freight and passenger rates in
the fa tat e was unconstitutional.

Chicago. April 10. The wheat market opened
huher and ruled firm in the mam throughout the
session, with a break in pnee after the publication
of the government report. The uitfurn in the mar

future While the perrraitage Jiown in the govern

scarcely have been construed as m anr wav bullish

The corn market ruled strong throughout the ses

FINANCE AND REALTY
Norfolk and Washington's new 3s fur
nished the feature of a bond day at
yesterday's session of the stock ex
change. Few securities were traded In,
but the market was steady generally.
A sale of two quotation lots of Riggs
Bank stock called out some notice, as
that share rarely figures In the trading.
Selling of Norfolk and Washington 5s
eased the price down a quarter, but after
$10,000 had figured the price was still firm
at 102, and a $2,000 sale after call
brought it back to the 102 mark.
Gas 5s were firm but inacthe, clinging
steadily to 110. The bid price posted was
Gas stock figured more or less promi
nently in the transactions, and held firm.
Most of the sales were at 81, though the
closing transaction was at a recession of
one-eighth. There was plenty offered
at 81 at the close.
Barring the securities mentioned, the
market was dull. Railway 4s and Rail
waj preferred figured to some extent,
but not enough to stir up any excite
ment. The Chamber of Commerce and the
Board of Trade will merge into one civic
organization within the neTt two months.
This is a bold statement, even in the
opinion of those who vouch for it, but
thej think they see the way clear. A
concerted plan, which numbers among

the cotten market to-day. The advance of nearly
fifty points last week was followed by another
upturn which carried the list of trading months
to new high levels for the movement. More- than
13 bale has been gained in July contract since
Saturday. Apnl 8. and there was no sign to-day
of a let-up in dullness or consternation of the
Most of to-day's support, according to floor gos
sip, was covrricg of hedges from LiterpooL and
short commitment made earlier in the month
by Wall street bouses. Southern spot market
were higher, and efforts to buy cotton in the Booth
for shipment to New York were partly responsible
for strength of those market. Liverpool was
strong at the opening of the New York market
and throughout the session. In fact, the strength
of that market and excellent trade eoodttiens in
Europe 1 the principal ammunition in the hand
of the bulls.
