of Long Inertia.

Make Record Other Gossip.
New York, April 1L Speculative senti
ment in Wall street, of the kind com
monly known as the room trading sort,
has lately become decidedly pessimistic,
chiefly because of the prolonged inertia
of the stock market, whote length is
now breaking all records.
To-day there was more selling than
for several weeks past and this was ac
companied by a decline in one or two
stocks that seemed to be caused by gen
uine liquidation. As a net result prices
were again lowered and rather more gen
erally than they have been on any oc
cation in the last fortnight.
Nevertheless, the raid was conceded on
all hands to be a failure. The selling
did not bring stock to the market in any
degree worth mentioning, and on the
other hand the market displayed a degree
of underlying strength, which indicated
that prices would advance rapidly should
buying orders for instant execution be
received for any considerable amount of
Rumor Starts Decline.
The one weak feature of the dealings to
day was American Cotton Oil common.
and the fall in its prices was due to
rumors that the forthcoming semi-annual
dividend upon the stock might be at
a reduced rate. It is believed, however,
that no notable reduction in the com
pany's profits has occurred, as it is the
policy of the company not to alter its
dividend rate upon small yearly fluctua
tion in business. The probability is that
usual semi-annual distribution will be
ordered at the meeting of the directors
to be held for that purpose next month.
Of news bearing upon the market prac
tically the only item was the govern
ment's report of agricultural experts of
domestic products for last month which,
as all people expected, did not make as
strong a showing as those for the pre
ceding months of the calendar year. This
was, of course, due to the fact that ex
ports of cotton in March did not keep up
the extraordinary and unprecedented
rate of earlier shipments.
As regards the country's export and
Import trade during the remainder of the
fiscal year attention must converge upon
the exports of other commodities besides
cotton, and upon the reduction in the
quantity of purchases of goods and ma
terials abroad by our people owing to
the general economizing that is now tak
