NEW YORK, April Today's stock
market continued to reflect the activity
of the speculative element, which caused
the revival of the market during the lat
ter, part of the week, but their operations
had to meet heavy realizing sales after
the opening. The market had turned up
ward again when the disclosure of the
important shrinkage in the surplus re
serve of the banks renewed the selling
and «ent prices generally below last
slit's level.
Louisville & Nashville was the only ;
important stock to make notable head
way on the final rally and the market
closed irregular.
There was some reversion to the ob- !
scure class of stocks, as shown by the |
20 point rise in Burlington, Cedar Rapids j
& Northern, 3 in United States Express i
and -i 1! in Nashville, Chattanooga & St.
Louis. Hocking Valley made a renewed
advance. Sugar and Colorado Fuel were
under pressure but rallied effectively.
The banks failed to show the expected
.-■ i off to the drain into the subtreasury
by any gain on the interior movement of
currency. Apparently losses were in
curred on this account as well as on
Bubtreasury opperations. There seems to
have been special transfers of specie to
Philadelphia during the week which is at
tributed to requirements growing out of
the labor situation in the coal relds.
The disbursement of government inter
est during the week has made no im
pression on the subtreasury aosorption
which has been aggravated by large de
posits of lawful money for account of
national banks which are retiring their
circulation. \
Gold Exports Are Expected.
The activity In the stock market gave
warning of a. probable increase in the
loan account of the banks. The net te
sult is a cutting down of the surplus by
two-thirds. Gold exports are consid
ered probable next week.
The passing of the April settlements
nas resulted in only a moderate growth
of speculative Interest in stocks, in spite
of the efforts of professional operators
to attract an outside following by manip
ulation of prices. The most conspicuous
price movements of the week have been
attributed almost entirely to such manip
ulation The sudden spurt after the mid
dle of the week in the grangers and l'a
cines gave rise to some conjecture of im
portant developments under :over but
nothing came to the public knowledge to
explain it. The supposition is g»ier.U
that the clement which has been active
l.i the market is made up of Western
men, who are conducting parallel opera
tions in the grain market. There was
evidence -of a shift during the week by
speculators from the long to the short
Bide in grain and from the short to the
long side in stocks.
There have been operations also by pro
fessional pools in many of the minor fail- i
roads, apparently on the general assump
tion that the minor systems -tn% ult:
mr- be sought for absorption by the
great systems, or for consolidation into
new competing systems. Obscure indus
trial stocks have continued to spring into
sudden activity from time to time with
out I? 11? 0-?' explanation or on reports
which fail of confirmation. Relapses in
prices as sudden as the advances there
upon follow. These various symptoms gi
to show that the great banking and
financial interests of ■ the country, whose
operations formed the backbone of last
years great marks, are still holding
All Eyes on Voilhncst.
vi?^m^ntl are supposed to hold
If \ amounts of securities, the prodKt
of. . last year's combination projects
which are destined for ultima'teS
from" ttO^ th'e P, ublic' their abstention
from stock market operations is sup
pcsably due to their conviction that th»
present attitude of investors toward se
curities is not favorable to their distri
bution. Attention of • the speculative
•public has reverted to the situation in
the Northwestern and transcontinental
railroad Held, by reason of testimony
elicited from the principals in the con
test of last year in a law suit. The
willingness of these principals to tell all
they were asked to in a suit of minor
importance, amounts in itself to an im
pression on the financial world. The de
duction from it is that a policy of con
ciliation to the public la considered de
sirable by capitalists. The impression is
created by the action taken by counsel
for the railroads in the government's
suits for injunctions against secret
rates, and cutting of freight rates. The
acceptance of injunctions without demur
and the protestation by railroad officials
of their willingness to have published
rates enforced are taken as evidence of
the desire to have a legal status fixed
for the existing order of things as
against the contingency of new meas
ures of coercion and regulation.
Competition No* c«< Off.
There is evident solicitude in railroad
circles over the pronouncement of one
of the interstate commerce commissioners
thai ""you cannot have competition and
you must put something- in the place of
it." All of the testimony of the princi
pals In the Northern Securities com
pany was directed to convey the as
surance that competition is not Inter
fered with in that organization. It is
perceptible that these assurances have
created pome apprehension in the finan
cial world that the unity of
control and of purpose in
transcontinental railroad affairs
was, in fact, not as was at first sup
i>' ■■-. d in the speculative excitement. No
treaty provision la revealed which will
guard against the competition of exten-
Bh ns by other lines in the transcontinen
tal territory, in accordance with their
rur.ifesi destiny. The increase in cap
ital stock of the Rock Island and the
passage of control of the miner railn ad
.systems in the territory concerned are
looked upon as evidence of such projects
of extension which will necessarily be fol
i' wed by other systems. In the eastern
territory, the intention,of the Gould sys
tem to secure an Ea.stern coast cutlet is
.if pted as a fact, and the alleged friend
ly acquiescence of the rival trunk lines
is not believed by the Wall strt^t pub

DULL DAY IN PIT
BKARISH CONDITIONS PREVAIL IN
"WHEAT, BIT PIiOBS ARE
MAI.VTAIXED
CORN, TOO, IS INACTIVE
Oats and Provisions Drag 1 in the
Trading, With Pork the Leading
Subject in the Specula
tive Corner.
CHICAGO, April s.—Speculation on the
Buard of Trade today was indifferent, al
though, with the exception of a gradual
decline in corn, prices hung steady. May
wheat closed a shade higher; May corn,
■ ■ lower, and May oats Vie I
Provisions closed unchanged \-> 7
up.
Bearish conditions seemed to prevail in
wheat, but the slight breaks expert
were nut with fair rallies. At the out
set cables were lower, but ths crowd
was talking of the sale by an elevator
of over 1,000,000 bu of cash wheat ;♦ Uu
luth. and refusals of bids for 400,000 bu
more. This business was said to have
been done late yesterday, and to have
been the incentive for thts high early
buying in the previous s> anon.
On this factor. May opened rather firm,
unchanged to 54c up, at 70%@71%c. The
Missouri state crop report. Indicating •". 1
per cent Increase in acreage of wheat,
and a condition of SO, started lower
prices. The crowd was Inclined to doubt
the cash sale story, but—though May
prices sold off to 70%@70%—a small de
mand occasioned a reaction, and May
closed steady, a shade up, at TO%@7lc.
Trading Is Spasmodic.
The crop report for Kansas Indicates
12 per c*».t increase in acreage over last
year, but 18 per cent has been damaged
and will be given over to other grains.
The remaining 82 per cent shows a con
dition of 74. The business of the day
was not large, and the trading was spas
modic, the greater part of the time be
ing dull.
Corn weakness exerted an Influence at
times. Local receipts were 33 cars, none
of contract grade. Minneapolis and Du
luth received 219 cars, making a total
for the three points of 252 cars, against
575 cars two days last week, and O.'>3 two
days a year ago. Primary receipts were
310,000 bu, compared to 822,000 bu last
year. Seaboard clearances in wheat and
flour equaled 189,000 bu. Australian ship
ments for the. week were 360,000 bu, com
pared to 683,000 bu last week*.
Corn was weak. Liquidation of May
deliveries by commission houses and lit
tle support depressed prices. Liverpool
was weak, and favorable crop conditions
pressed on the market. Country offerings
continued small, but cash business show
ed no improvement. On the decline pit
traders took fair amounts. Trade was
small and the range narrow. May sold
from 59y s c to a weak close, %&%c lower,
at BB%@dß^4c. Receipts were 87 cars.
Pork Leads in Speculation.
Oats were dvii. Following the weak
ness in corn, the far-off options were
easier. But May had some little support
and fluctuated narrowly. The Missouri
state report shows seeding condition,
March 29 at 62, against 25 this time a
year ago. May closed. %c lower, at 42% c.
Receipts were 64 cars]
Provisions were dull much of the lime,
but had an upturn on the better hog situ
ation. Pork led in speculation, and was
strong enough to give a. firm tone to all
products. There was some fair early
buying for bulls of the local crowd, but
after this demand was filled trade hung
lire. The outsiders seemed to be well
loaded up with long property, and wait
ing developments. Cash trade was fea
tureless. May pork closed 7%@*oc up. at
'$16.47%; May lard. 2%c higher, at $9.60,
and May ribs unchanged, at $8.87%
The estimated receipts for Monday are:
Wheat, 30 cars; corn, '■'< cars; oats, 75
cars, and 32,000 head of hogs.

MINNEAPOLIS, April s.—Wheat held
fairly well today, and while a new low
point was touched, May going to 6vte on a
quick dip, recovery foiowed and the close
was linn with yesterday. it was the
same story as to good crop prospects with
the addition of several new items of bear
ish tenor. The most important of these
was the report as to the outlook in Mis
souri. The condition was said to be
figured as equal to 90, and claiming a
largely increased acreage This was de
cidedly bearish.
The Nebraska reports claimed a superb
outlook with prospects for a crop of
45,000,100 bu on an acreage increase of 20
per cent. Predictions are for continua
