The Tone Firm as Compared With
BULLS FAIL IN THEIR MOVE
Many Alarmist Reports Currcnt llc
?.ardiii<r iho Norihwesteru
NEW YOR3-C, June 7.?Absolutc slagna
tion characterized the stock market to
day. By comparisdn with yesterday. the
tone was lirm. but that was only because
the bears somewhat overextended their
commitments on tlie short side yesterday.
lt was evldent that tlie late selling yes?
terday was based. uik.h the expectation
tliat selling by Eondon this morning
?would offer an ojjportuhity to set back
stocks at a lower level. Lontlon did. in
fact, sell stocks here on a moderate scale,
but the demand from tlie shorts was sulfi
cient to overcome the deelino and to make
some show of strength ln the market.
The bulLs attempted to stimulate the
movement by bldding up the coalcrs on
vague talk of further comprehensive
traffic agreements. This manooyre proved
Ineffective, and the market relansed to
about last night's level, and never. got
iar away from lt again In either direc?
tion. New York Air Brake was rushed
upward 2V. points on talk of absorptlon
by the Wcstlnghouse Company. lt saved
a 5 i>oint net gain.
In Sugar there was a demand from an
uneasy short Interest, which had been
overextended during the decline of the
last few days. and the stock gaincd over
a point net. Tho loaning rates on stocks
dlsclosed the existence of (juite a large
outstanding short.interest well distributed
throughout the list. 3n the entire laek of
animation in speculative spirit the pro
fessional traders are disinclined to further
comniitments on the short side.
There was no further evidence to-day
of the selling through commission-houses
wliieh was called outside Uqiildation yes?
terday. Tho incidents for the day, taken
ln themselves, indicatcd declining values
for securities, but these incidents had
been anticipated, and, therefore, the
movement of prices was discounted. The
iron stocks were r.-ithcr firm on the sup
position that the cut ln prices has
broueht a step nearer the resumption of
the cxpected buying demand.
Many alarmist reports were current
coricerning the NOrthwestern wheat crop.
The continued heaviness of foreign stock
markets, on account of the complications
in China had a. symnathctic effect here.
fhe selling of stocks for l^ondon was
BUfflcient to cause a frnetioual advance
ln cable transfers on London.
The weekly statement of the foreign
oovernni! nt banks dlsclosed a conserva
uvc movement still in force. The Bank
of Engiand returns show only ?600,000 in
loans repaid to the bank despite of dis
bursement of Government deposit to the
amount of over ?s.0uo,ooo, and a prevail
ing rate of diseount well below the bank
rate. The Bank of Franee has rosumed
its policy of both note and loan contrac
tion which was interrupted last week,
and. in spite of a gain in gold of S_,_7_,
(><"><>, it has decreased its note circulation
over ?25,000,000 aml contracted its out
standing loans over $4S,900,000. ln Berlin
there were forced sales of mining shares
ana a reflection of the same policy of re
trenchment. ln New York. on the con
trary. money continues in very light de

NEW YORK, June 7.?COTTON?The
feature of to-day's news in the cotton
market was the Chronicle's acreage esti
inate, anu as the, ligures given exceeded
expectation, decline in prices naturally ,
resulted. While lluctuations during the
uay were of limlted scope, the net change
was not graUfying to either side. The
market opened steady,. with prices 5 j
points lower to 1 point higher, but al?
most immediately turned weak in re
sponse to a sharp break in Liverpool, and
under an estimate for an increase of 9.7
per cent. in this year's acreage to 24,625
acres. On this downturn c jnsiderable
liquidation occurred both foreign and do
mestic accounts, while shorts increased
obligations under the firm convlction that
tne situation warranted a decline to be?
low the 8c. market for August. But while j
in the midst of their jubilation the bears
were confrontc-d with a sudden reaction
in Liverpool and brisk demand from lnllu
ential outside parties here. Prices quickly
returned to last night's level on this
support and scored a slight gain before
a breathing spell was taken, but the
Liverpool linal cables in hand of room
tradcrs subsequentiy assumed the d_fen
sive and gave attention to settlement of
unprotected accounts as a matter ot" pre
cautidn on account of the Holiday in
Liverpool to-morrow and Saturday, and to
an unusual mverg-ence of opinion con?
cerning the probable outcome of Monday's
bureau report, the first of the season.
Moreover, verv little news came to hand
in the afternoon, and orders were also
few and far between, leavlng the talent
m control, but purposelessl The market
was finally steady.
