Effort to Put Up Prices Was
CLOSING WAS AT LOWEST
There Was Scattered Liquidation and
Acute Weakness In Some Issues.
News Unfavorable for a Rise.
Bonds Dull and Weak.
tur Associated Pre*?,)
NEW YOHK, .lune ?'2.?There was ?
briefly entertained purpose till? morning
to put up prices, but It was soon aban?
doned and the stock market waa allow?
ed to drift for the rest of the, day. Scat?
tered liquidation from various quarters
and rather acute weakness of a few
stocks caused the drift to be downwards,
and the closing: was easy at the lowest
of the day and very dull.
The news of the day was tint favorable
to arise, nnd the early attempt to put up
prices seemed to be manipulative and de?
signed to contest t,he effect of tho poor
bank statement of Saturday. The an?
nouncement of gold exports was tho sig?
nal for prices to turn downwards. The
outgo of gold also ?ave renewed effect
to Saturday's bnnk statement and tho
?weather map for the day, being unfavor?
able for tho corn and cotton crops ns well
as for the harvesting of winter wheat
crop, wns added to the depressing Influ?
ences. The stock market nt present is
sensitive to the chances of the corn crop,
the acreage for which Is now being fin?
ally decided. The day's unfavorable de?
velopments for the crops as Indicated by
the strength both In the cereal nnd cotton
markets was perhaps of equnl Influence
?with the gold exports In depressing
stocks. Only one or two of the princi?
ple railroad stocks lost ns much ns a
point, Pennsylvania and Heading, repre?
senting tho coalers, and Illinois Central
tho cotton carriers. International mer?
cantile marine, although not dealt In on
iho Stock Exchange, was weak on the
curb on account of the accounted deten?
tion to Cnnard Company to net Inde?
pendently of the combination In making
rates. Criticism of the status of tho com?
bination Is playing a.n Important part In
causing the current suspicion of tho
financial situation here on the part of
the foreigners. Steps taken In various
judicial proceedings against minor Indus?
trial corporations was a contributing in?
fluence to ihe depression. Special pres?
sure was directed against Colorado Fuel,
Brooklyn Transit. Metropolitan Street
Railway, tho securities company, the
Union Bng stocks and leather preferred.
The total transactions fell to near the
low level for tho your.
Bonds wero dull and weak. Total sales,
par value, $1,405.000. United States new
4's, registered, declined % por cent, on
the laut call.
The total sales of stocks for the day
were 327,900 shares.

???G YORK, .Tune 22.?The opening on the
Rtock Exchange was rather featureless, but bet?
ter tlmn might linve been expected, In Tie?? of
the rather heavy tone of the London mitrket
and the possibility of Bold export? In conse?
quence of Ihe decline In exehnnge In Parla nnd
Berlin. The professional element seemed hull?
lsh In one or two departments, but the traders
took no special line nt tbe opening nnd commis?
sion boueo business wns light.
THE FIRST HOUR:
In the first hour prices showed some amnll
tondonccy to ease off from the rnther Arm show?
ing of the opening, but tha mnrket was In?
tensely dull, and the changes of very trifling
Importance. There was perhaps ? llttlo West?
ern spiling round the room, but the Totume of
transactions, were light and there waa no Btock
pressing nnywhere. ?
EARLY AFTERNOON PULT,:
The dullness became still more mnrked In the
early afternoon, hut prices did not recede
further, and In some casca seemed Inclined to
rally. The trading, however, was entirely pro?
fessional, and even tbe wire houses complained
of an absence of ordera.
It Is estimated in conservative quarter? that
ot least SO per cent, of the underwriting syn?
dicate of any lppoxtanee. have distributed their
various issues, to,'tho Individual members. It la,
of course, Impossible, to any how much tho In?
dividual members have distributed, but .tbe
amount is probably very amali. It has, how?
ever, Involved thn sole of a number of high
prices stocks, and amongst these Consolidated
Gaa has been not Ihe least Important.
??? CLOSING HBAV?I
The close wa? heavy with very little rallying
power not Implied in the covering of a fow
room traders, evening up tholr books before go?
ing home. Tim volume of miles eliil not Indi?
cete that nny Important operations ?ero G?
progrese, altbough It was salii lhat the larger
trailers were bearish, There wae Tory llttln
news obtainable, during the day, and everything
wee Tery dull.

tinctly upward tendency, the close being steady
nt ? net gain of 0@25 points. Total sales
futures were estimated nt 300,000 bales. The
Initial ndvnnee was under covering, due to
the unfavorable turn In tbe wenther through?
out the South. The English cables wero some?
what under expectation? nnd receipts for the
day were fair, hut these factors hnd little In?
fluence compared wltb tho unfavorable crop
reports, and tbero wns also renewed tnlk nf
a squeeze In the summer months, following
fresh supporting ordere from New Orlcnns and
a report that 000 hales of cotton had been
shipped out of the New York stock market to
the southern market. Just before mid-day there
was a recession under profit-taking, but tbe
