Less Than a Quarter Million
Shares Dealt In.
LITTLE CHANGE IN PRICES
Trader? Took Profit? on Small Seule
During the Last Hour, and Reduced
Uvei Slightly, but the Closing
(By Aaeoeiated Press,)
>NBW YORK, May l.-Less than a
quarter of a million shares of stocks
were dealt ln on the Stock Exchange to?
day, limiting the low luvel thus far for
Hit? year. The market was Intensely dull
and narrow ? throughout. The declaration
by tho Pennsylvania Railway dimeters
Of the regular semi-annual dividend of 8
per conti was tho occasion of tho buying
of Pennsylvania up to. a level ot, IVi.
above last night by the tradors who had
?old tho stock yesterday on an Irrespon?
sible rumor that the dividend rate was
to bo reduced. Delaware and Hudson
was marked up rapidly In the late deal
Inge without any special news to account
for It. The concentrated buying Mid bid?
ding up of Mlnsourl Pacific was attri?
buted to the pool which has long beon
Interested In the stock. Some of the other
Clould etocks participated ln tho move?
ment. Traders took their profits on a
small scale during the last hour, and thus
reduced the price level slightly, but the
closing was steady.
There was no change of Importance In
general conditions to account for ? the
weorlng around of speculative sentiment
from that of yesterday. The severity of
th-T'.i?eathepmade more Impression in tho
Louhjvlllo and Nashville reported an In?
crease In net earnings for March of $229,?
?99, out of an Inorease In gross of $478,099.
The showing made by forty-four rail?
road?,'which have reported for tho month?
of March, Is of an increase of nearly 28
per cent, in tho net camines, compared
with March of last year. , ?
Tho week's movomoht.of currency ho?
again been largely In favor of New York.
The notable strength of sterling exchange
was taken more account of than the cur?
rency movement. It Is agreed amongst
bankers that tho lack of Immediate facil?
ities was all that precludod oxport? of
froid to-day. There was a slight harden
ng In tho call oan market to 3 per cont.,

What the New York Afternoon Paper?
Say About Yeaterday's Trading.
(8piM:lil to Tlve TimM.IMsptteh.)
NEW' YORK. May 1.?The Commercial
Advertiser says: __
Dealings on the Stock Exchange to?
day came nearer to a state of stagna?
tion than they have ln a ???? time pa*..
Prices, as a rule, moved upward, but
the movement was of no importance. It
merely give perfuuetory recognlUon .to
the fact that most of yesterday's argu?
ments for selling stocks had disappeared
over night. The New York harbor strike,
which had threatened aotao ot the large
transportation companies with Inconven?
ience and loss, was averted. The cold
wave was reported to be passlnjr from the
harvest regions, without having inflat?
ed any serious damage Finally, the
silly rumor, which professional operatore
circulated yesterday, regarding the Penn?
sylvania dividend, was quickly cast aside
by the declaration of the usual semi?
annual 3 per cent, this morning. The
market held Its ground very well during
the afternoon, but showed no disposition
to continue the advance, Somo heavy
buying of Metropolitan was interesting,
Jn view of to-morrow's promised decision
In the Jlbel case. It doubtless reflected
professional Wall Street's opinion of what
tho outcome will be. Aside from this, the
final dealings were oxtremely stupid.
The dullness at the close was oppres?
elve. _ f
The Evening Post says:
Most of the story. of to-day's stock
market was told In tho first hour, Then
it was idull, narrow, hesitating, with
volume of business restricted nnd trad?
ing confined to professional Interests en?
tirely. In the third - hour, from 12 ' to 1
o'clock, only 14,774 shares changed hands.
During the first three hours leas than
360,000 shares were sold. Prices for tho
most part held fairly firm, but tho move,
ment was sluggish, with no special fea?
ture of strength. London was closed for
the May day recess,. and except for a
little arbitrage business, there was no for?
eign trading to speak of hero. There was
considerable buying of Pennsylvania after
tho dlvldond declaration, which, with the
movement In Reading and Missouri Pa?
cific, wore features of strength. Most
of the Granger shares received some at?
tention. Atchlson. Union Paclflo and
Rock Island benefiting chiefly by this
movement The traction shares' wore ln
some demand during the later trading,
but tho market became so dull that tho
ticker stood motionless for long Inter?
vals. Buying of Delaware a??? Hudson
was the feature of tho last few min?
utes, Tho market closed at a reaction,
with total sales aggregating 318,3:2 shares.
This represented tho smallost day's busi?
ness of the year,
Tim Mall and Expresa says:
o-da/s stock market colls for very lit.
tie comment In point of buslno',? ?t
?was the smallest affair In months, but
the extremo dullness was partly compen?
sated for by a higher range of values,
the strong tono of speculation boing quite
In contraet to yesterday's weakness. The
market paid no attention to a sharp rise
In wheat at Chicago and Now York; tho
consensus of opinion on the Stock Ex?
change being that whatever damage hnd
been Inflicted on winter wheat would
be repaired by the warmor weather re?
ported from the West to-day.
The declaration of the regular 3 per
cent semi-annual dividend by the Pcrm
?ylvanla Railroad lifted the? stock over a
point tuid the advance had a g??d effect

lacked confirmation, that the Metropoli.

WALL STREET GOSSIP
Trading Almost at a Standetill?Penn?
sylvania Declares Usual Dividend.
(Special to The Tlraos-Dlspatch.)
NEW YORK, May J,?The opening of |
tho stock market was generally firm
and was helped by somo special buy?
ing of Missouri Pacific, whloh gave con.
f Idonee elsewhere. Commission house
business was vory light and there was no
foreign trading. The better outlook for
tho threatened harbor engineers' strlko
and the expected rogular dividend on
Pennsylvania wort? favorable factors.
WEATHER IN THE WEST:
A good deal of attention was directed
to weather conditions In the West and
Southwest The advices from the winter
wheat district wore conflicting, but It
was thought that some reduction from
tho extraordinary conditions shown In
the last government-crop report had been
generally expected and would not havo
much unfavorable effect ae there was
plenty left to make a big crop.
The course of Exchango was a point of
some Importance especially as gold ehlp.
mente would have been just profitable If
thero had been a fast Fronoh boat, The
opinion was still held that Exchange
would ease off before engagements could
be made for Tuesday,
EXTREMELY DULL: ? .
Trading In the first hour was extremely
dull and the volume was little more than
. half the average transactions In tho same
?period In the recent past Stocks, which
had sold off on moderate realising, ral?
lied and became dull, but there were no
transactions of real character. The ex?
collent Louisville earnings for March did
not encourage a single transaction in the
stock tn the first hour.
WABASH ISSUES: J
The Waboeh issues showed fair strength
and tho buying In the Debenture's B's
looked rather good. There wae talk of
an Interest payment on thess bonds ln
June, whloh was not disoouraged In well,
informed quarters, although no official
confirmation watt forthcoming,
ERIE. ACTED WELLt
The Erles aoted as well as any thin*
and seemed to have been accumulated
on the expected 4 per cent, dividend on
the first preferred In July, This Is ex?.
(peoted in weH-lnforroiBd ounrCurs, ns the
eontrol is now safely held, by tho Mor?
gan Interest and their friends, and It
woul<|, therefore, foe safe to dissolve
the voting trust.
BALES SMALLEST IN SOME TIME:
The sales up lo the noon hour.were
the lightest In the corresponding period
for a long time past, and trading was
very dull, - The tone was fairly hard

catf?d that what small sp?culation there
was was directed to advancing prices.
?FRISCO WAS" FTRMl
St Louis and San Francisco Issues were
firm on small transactions. It I? under?
stood that the pool Is etiti earning Its
stock, and It should, therefore, have no
dluiculty In marking up the price. There
was the usual rumor that the 'negotia?
tions with Rock Island would be re?

The market was even duller In the ear?
ly afternoon than It ? had been In the '
morning. One of the chartered humorists
of the board secured a. "To Let" notice
from some evacuated office and put It
over the Southern Pacific Post The
lest was too nearly true to be thorough?
Metropolitan was run up with the'
shorts without much difficulty and It
was dlffloult to see that the movement
had any other meaning. It was certainly
not believed that anybody knew the terms
of the Amory decision.
The close was extremely dull, and th?
total transactions represented the small?
est volume of business since last summer.
There was hardly a movement that
caused comment, and the room was very
empty. The opinion at the close favored
a good bank statement and traders were
, NEW YORK. May 1.?The cotton mar?
ket opened firm at an advance ot 3@6
points, and following the call showed con?
tinued strength for a time under cold
weather reports from the South, where
froste were reported In various important
sections, and a? a result of Arm cables.
Liverpool was due to come about l@3
points higher. It opened only 1 polnth
higher, but before the time of the local
opening was Vj?33 points higher and closed
net 3V6?W points higher. Port receipts for
the day were about on a par with those
of last year and exerted little Influence,
The early advance carried May to 10.69;
July to 10.12 and August to 9.73, with the
general list showing a net gain? at that
me 4?7 pointe.
The- late months cam? In for a good
share of the advance on outside buying on
on anticipation of further damage os a
result of tho cold weather. Then the
forecast calling for rising temperatures
and the bull pool showing little apparent
disposition to support values, smaller
longs became nervous and profit-taking
set In with some bear pressure ba?ed on
the large Into sight for the week,? which
was figured at 106,000 bales against 84,000
bales lost year.
Eetlraates for to-morrow's recel?te at
loading ports were light, but exports also
wore' smaller, being only 2,224 bales, while
the spot cotton markets were firm. They
wero generally unchanged ?nd quiet.
There were also some ??????t of May, and
the markot declined 6&1 points from the
bost; then ruled ratlier Irregular and final?
ly was steady at unchanged prices to ad?
vance of 3 points. July dosed at lowest
of tho session, while May showed a re?
covery from the lowest or 4 points,
Totjil sales of future? estimated at 125,
Cotton futures opened firm and closed
