Heaviness in Steel Bailway
New York, June 13. Tha flattening- out
of the Epeculathra npwarj moTement in
Jtlcea was a sora disappointment to-day
to tha profeaslosal trading; dement, Tha
rise, wfifci developed In (h latter part
of last week, had aroused great hopes
that tha market was- it hut out of lt
rut. Tha presumption vis so widespread
that tha advancer In price' had received
countenance ontt assistance- from soma of
tha larga hanlrtng and railroad Interests,
whose co-operation In tha market has
been vainrr rooked for by tha traders for
There watt nd erWenea to-dar ot barms'
of this character, and when tha smaller
class of speculators attempted to take
pronts on some of the bolSto3 taken over
last week, they xaund ther had tha mar
ket ta themselves and no absorptive' pow
er for their modsrata offerings. The rea
sons which tha habitual trades expect al
ways ta b present for a raorrement of
prices were variously assltmed. ProbaWy
the true exnlanallan would b that suo-

On the contfary', railroad officials ware

POOR EXPORT SHOWING.
Tha domestlo exports' for stay make a
poof contrast with thtt relative Improve
ment In April, which It was hoped marked
tha torn for tha better in. our export trade.
May exports of domestlo products, on tha
contrary, have decreased over XI&OOO.OJO
from those of May last year, and upward
of SU.000,000 .from April of this year. Of
the dacreas from last. year mora than
Cl.000,000 Is in -value, of breadstuff and
over 13,000,000 in value of eottoa. The
ri.73i.80l of the oreadstuffa exports makes
the lowest valuation of any on month for
Tha advance In the grain markets to-day
helped to unsettle the stock; -market, as
did a reduction In tha price: of copper. The

SUMMARY OFST. LOUIS MARKETS ,
At the opening; of yesterday's market there seemed to be nothing ta sight extent
bearish Indications. 'Weather, foreign advices and everything which usually governs
trrain values at this season seemed 'to favor the selling side. Cables were Sharply
on the downturn and world's shipments were large, the movement from Russia,
and India being especially heavy. Throughout the winter belt and most ol the
spring belt, weather condition were well nigh Ideal. The movement to sell was
further aided by heavy receipts here and at other primary points. The market
did not seem to have any rallying power until well along In the second hour, when ,
It became apparent that there had been a great deal of overselling on the- early -bearish
news. Professional traders, who had been waiting for Just guch . chance,
got in at the bottom. TVhen the buying movement began, a good deal of stfeis
was laid on the threatening aspect of the weather and the strength of the coarse
grains. In the last hour there was considerable covering, which more than wiped
out the previous losses.
Corn was tho real strong epot of the day. Weather conditions were favoraole
and receipts were large, but these Indications were offset by a bullish report from
the Kansas Agricultural Bureau and by advices that the Russian crop would be
small. Prospects of more rain also had a bullish effect toward the end of the

sional Baying Cause Sharp Re
versal in Last Hour.
There was a. sharp reversal toward the
close of yesterotty's session. Generally
favorable weather and weak cables
caused a brisk selling movement at the
opening. Later strength of the coarse
grains and an unexpectedly large de
crease In the visible supply led to cov
ering by shorts. The statement that mill
ers had about exhausted the local cash
supply also was a bullish Item.
