There Was a Difference.
The following: story is told of Rudyard
Kipling's maternal grandfather. Rev
George B. McDonald, a Wesleyan > clergy:
It is related of this gentleman that in
the days when he was courting the lady
whom he afterwards married, the father
in-law to be—an aged Methodist with
extremely strict notions in regard ™
the proprieties-was injudicious enough
on one occasion to enter the parlor with
out giving any v arning of his approach
The consequence was that he found the
sweethearts occupyirg a single chair
Deaply. shccked by this spectacle, the
old man solemnly said:
"Mr. Me Dc raid, when I was courtin*
Mrs. Brcwr. she sat on one side of the
room and I on the other.**
McDonald's reply was:
"That's what I should have done If I
had been courting Mrs. Brown."
THE ST. PAUL GLOBE, SUNDAY, MAY 25, JoOS;
IT STEADIES STOCKS
Efiect of Buying of Canadian
Pacific, Which Reaches
Eecord Figure
BANK SHOWING'S RESULT
>ot So Important Does It Prove as
Had Been Expected — Glance
Backward Over a VV oek'i
Operation*.
XEW YORK, May 24.—The only feature
of importance in today's market was the
buying of Canadian Pacitic, which has
been in evidence for several day 3 past,
and which was halted by the president's
statement that the general prosperity of
the company was all he knew of to ac
count for it. The price reached a record
figure today at 12*%. This movement
helped to keep the gtneral market steady.
There were a number of special move
ments in less important stocks, but«the
list as a whole was inert and close at
small net changes either way. The hope
ful views of the peace outlook in South
Africa did not alter this state of affairs,
nor did the bank statement. There is a
disposition to await definite results in
South Africa, and a feeling that there
might be a hitch that would again delay
the decision. The outcome of the coal
strike is also awaited. The report that
the control of Louisville & Nashville and
in consequence, the Chicago, Indianapolis
& Louisville absorption project are, in a
measure, contingent and dependent on
holdings under options was somewhat
disturbing in the possibility suggested
of complications. The weather map was
construed as favorable to crop prospects,
although showers in the Northwest are
not dried at this time.
Intlaenve of Hunk Statement.
The bank statement shows an encour
ag-ing recuperation of reserves, but
neither the Increase in cash nor the re
duction fai loans was fully up to the ex
pectationa fanned by the street. The ef
fect on the market was therefore scarce
ly perceptible The market closed about
steady.
There has been a quiet speculation In
stocks this week, aa ia natural to the sea
son and the various factors of uncer
tainty in the situation. But with the ex
ception of a period of positive weakness
during the ttrst two hours of the week's
trading, the undertone of the market has
been tirm and unevenly strong.
Prices are quite materially higher for
the week. This is in large part due to the
easier end of the money market which
hits shown the n-sults of the attraction
of funds from our domestic centers and
from foreign money markets by the re
cently prevailing high rates for money.
The rates for call loans have settled
down for the week to below 4 per cent,
and, contrary to the general expectation,
the rate for foreign exchange has not re
sponded with any material advance. It
was feared that the first show of ease in
the local money market would lead to the
withdrawal of funds placed here to take
advantage of the more profitable interest
rate.
Little Impression There.
The fact is that the large demands
made upon Paris and Berlin for New
York account made an insignificant im
pression upon money rates at those cen
ters and there is .still sufficient profit to
keep foreign loans in this market. Lon
don's money requirements are considera
ble, but there is so greac a plethora of
U in Paris and Berlin as to afford
resources for London's surplus require
ments as well. Berlin is still going
through its long process of liqaidation
following upon the industrial depression
there, and French capital is still indis
; to venture into industrial ventures
its costly experience with Russian
projects.
The result has been free lending of
funds in the New York markot. The
pressure upon speculative borrowers in
the securities market has been relaxed
and the process of weeding out undesira
ble collateral in loans has apparently
been completed. The memory o-f this
process still remains and is an element
of the caution which is manifest in the
character of the operations in stocks.
With the exception of the anthracite min
ers strike, general conditions have been
so favorable that the provisions of bet
ter credit facilities has encouraged the
confident holding of stocks and r.as made
the market sensitive to the li^ht demand.
The damage done by the suspension of
work in the coal mines and the restric
tion of supply is undeniable.
The effect is perceptible, especially in
the iron and steel trade, and has caused
tru- iron and steel stocks to share, to some
extent, in the depression of the coalers.
The heaviness or the United States Steel
Stocks was associated also with the pro
entered by some of the minority
stockholders at the meeting to ratify the
stock conversion and bond issue plan
»i>tculative holders of these stocks were
alarmed on Monday by rumors of the
fcrmation of a powerful bear party and
by the sharp br^ak in the quotation for
the new bonds when issued, which are
dealt in on the curb.
Timely Support.
Support was forthcoming, however and
a steadied tone developed. The *eatim-nt
in Wall street regarding the coal miners'
strike has been persistently optimistic as
to the probable duration. The news from
the crop regions is attentively studied
from day to day and has not been unfa
vorable to stock values. Rains are re
torted too abundant in the Northwest
but the favorable progress of the winter
wheat crop and the shaping of th« di
mensions of the corn crop have gained
additional consideration.
It is recognized that the progress of
the corn crop win be a more influential
factor upon stocks than that of any other
staple. The statements of railroad
gross earnings for the first and second
weeks of May show a continuance of
the increases over last years correspond
ing level. There is no gain-saying th-s
significance of this as an index of tl>a
maintenance of prosperous conditions in
general business and it goes far to ex
plain the determination with which se
curities are held.
The completion of the acquisition of
the Chicago, Indianapolis & Louisville
m the joint interest of the Southern rail
way and the Louisville & Nashville and
the passing of Ana Arbor to the control
01 a \V abash syndicate have kept alive
the faith of speculators in the future
course of absorption of smaller railroad
systems and has led to speculative move
ments in stocks* of various smaller sys
tems.
Hontility Crops Oat.
There has been some evidence of a
spirit of hostility to these projects on
the part of older railroad systems as In I
the termination by the Pennsylvania of
Its Western Union contracts, but this has
passed without much influence in the
stock market. The stocks affected by
the copper industry have risen, led by
Amalgamated Copper on the advancing
tendency and reported increasing de
mand for raw copper. The firmer ten
dency m the silver market has also bene
fited some of the metal companies Euro !
pean markets have reflected a growing '
confidence in the , approach of place "5
South Africa. This has been an occa
sional influence in stock markets for a
long time, but it is expected that its ac
tual consummation must awaken some
degree of speculative activity in many
directions. ,
Business in bonds has not been large
bat prices are well sustained. United

TIO.\ OF GOVERNMENT REPORT
Opening Prices Droop Under a
Whole Cluster of Depressing Id.
fluences— n. "While Traders
Conclude That There Is Really Xo
C'tvuse for Alarm.
CHICAGO, May 21.—Tha gram markets
were thrown-out" oi' g> at today by tha
publication of -.the-^«overnm.en't report of
last year's crop yj^ids. ;"r>e report was
construed quite bearish(jf -for a time, es
pecially since foreign jpr>rk*>^ were de
pressed by it. In the end, however, an
excellent export demand helped traders to
view the revised figures most dispassion
ately, and July wheat closed a shad*
higher, July corn %c up and July oa"t» a
shade advanced. Provisions closed 5c to
5!&7%c higher.
Wheat suffered materially at the open
ing. Cables were weak; the government
report showed an increase of 70,000,000 bu
in last years crop over the former fig
ores; trade was light and the crowd, was
overbold on good weather talk. Kansas
points reported that harvest would begin
in ten days, and that the conditions in
many places were fine, with prospects of
35 to 40 bu to the acre. Estimates of
this year's winter crop exceeded 400,000. COO
bu. Under these influences and the bear
ish effect the government report had on
the curb last night opening prices were
depressed. July started %'<#*sc to %'S»%e
lower at 73c to 72% c, and hung between
these figures for some time.
Sojier Second Thought.
Gradually traders digested the report of
the department of agriculture more thor
oughly. In the «nd they came to tha
belief that since the report was simply a
revision to conform with the estimates
of the census bureau there was no nead
to be frightened over it. Even though it
showed the crop was 743.460,000 bu, and
estimates of consumption based on tho
same figures showed that there has been
absorbed something more than all last
year's production. After the market had
weakened on stop loss orders coming out
at 73c the shorts and some leading bulls
started in to buy. Sentiment changed
when a good export and cash demand da
veloped and prices rallied.
The Northwestern receipts, which have
been running small for some time, were
again curtailed, but advices were that
a car famine in the Northwest was
preventing an otherwise liberal movement.
July worked up to 73%'&73%c and closed
firm, a shade up at*73%c. Local receipts
were 7 cars, none of contract grade. Min
neapolis and Duluth reported 125 caret,
making a total for the three" points of
132 cars, against 112 last week and ISO a
year ago. Primary receipts were 259,000
bu, compared to 495,000 bu a year ago. Sea
board clearances in wheat and flour
equaled 815,000 bu. New York reported 62
loads taken for export.
Corn's Experience Similar.
Corn was similarly affected to wheat by
the government report. There was a b^sak,
of %c on the arbitrary increase of 8,529,
--000 acres In the area and 184,000,000 bu in
the production. The crowd, however, was
inclined to the view that consumption had
been proportionately greater. Traders
eventually rejected bearish gossip and
figures on a crop that was past, and bull
sentiment was injected into the pit.
The trade was never strongly active,
and receipts were larger and country
sales freer, though still not large. Cables
were lower and crop prospects good, with
the exception of dry subsoils in some dis
tricts. Nevertheless the strength develop
ed, and July rallied sharply to 62% C after
opening as low a3 61% c. July closed strong,
%c up at 62% c Receipts were M cars.
Usit.-t Hull, Provisions Higher.
Oats were dull and uninteresting. The
early tone was weak under the mtluence
of the other grains. Receipts were in
creased somewhat and crop prospects con
tinued to be favorable. After the early
weakness a fair support developed and
prices rallied. July oats advanced from
36% cto 37%tj3,5%c, and closed steady, a
shade up at 37% c. Receipts were IS2 cars.
Provisions recovered some from yester
day's decline. The run of hega at the
yards was smaller than had been esti
mated, yet prices were lower. In spite of
this »id the grain weakness prices open
ed only slightly easier, and upon the de
velopment of a good packers support ad
vances were made. July pork cloa :4?
7%c higher at $11.07%; July lard, 5-tf7%c
up at $lt>.n%@lo.a>; July ribs 5c higher at
p. 62%.
The estimated receipts for Monday are:
Wheat, 25 cars; corn, 95 cars; oats, 21a
cars and 37.0U0 head of hogs.
Hogs for the week, 70,0'j0 head.

grains the market was worked back to

hesitation and tendency towards bearish
ness.

and the general effect of tile report was
bearish.
Coming to the Northwest It was found
that Minnesota, with 6,209,50 i acres, raised
80,701,627 bu; South Dakota, with 4.004.530
acres, raised 51,662,307 bu, and North Da
kota, with 4,527,332 acres, produced 59,
--310.cc:> bu, a total for the three states of
191,075.603 bu. The effect of the report
abroad was weakening. Broomhall * ca
bled that the bearish construction put
upon it induced general realizing in Liv

during the session, resulting in further
declines of kid and Vs<l. Com opened l4d

Flour—The week was on the whole
unsatisfactory in the flour trade. Mill
ers complain of the close margin on
which they have been compelled to do
business and many orders were declin
ed as they were on a basis too low to af
ford any profit. The week brought two
new features —the experiment of sending
flour town the river to go out by way
of New Orleans to try and circumvent
the railroad discrimination, and the
closing of the big Waahburn A mill that
had ground steadily for seventeen
months. This latter was largely the re
suit of unfavorable freight rates, and the
long continued disposition of the rail
roads to oppose any liberality towards
the mills. There is probability that more
mills may close next week. Sales have
been barely up to the output. Ship
ments for the day, 50.683 barrels. First
