New York dealers in stocks and bonds
awoke to a realization yesterday that their
fears had exaggerated values threatened by
the Graeco-Turklsh war. The early morn
ing brought news of the opening prices in
London for American securities at well
above Monday night's New York closing.
The opening was about, on a parity with
lxndon . for the International shares, the
rush of first purchases in some stocks being
to great as to give a range of U in the
initial price as was the case in the selling
movement. The opening was attended by
an almost efjual degree of excitement. Tho
day was, in fact, almost an exacc reversal
, of Monday's proceedings except that the
retrograde movement Stopped short of full
recovery- The international stocks were
naturally the most affected by the London
totrcngth, and Louisville fc Nashville, which
Buffered the heaviest loss, showed the
sharpest recovery, opening at an improve
ment of .Hi. St. Paul opened with t unning
sales of ti.uuO shares at 70 to 7o;. against
- Monday night s closing at fJO-'U. The im
provement, though centering m the inter
nationals, was general throughout the list,
the rise reaching a joint in many stocks.
The quotations for British consols from
London were eagerly looked for as the lest
index of the real importance attached to
tho war by those likely to. be best informed.
Quotations were the first since Thursday,
und when it was seen that the fall in the
price was only 7-16, apprehensions over the
rffects of the war largely subsided. At the
opening of the war between Turkey ami
luissla, in U77, the fall in consols was three
lull points. Tne tone of the exchange mar
ket yesterday also served to abate the fear
of immediate gold shipments, which was
an influence only In selling. The advance
In exchange rates which has occurred on
each successive day recently ceased, and
rates only jU3t barely held lirm. It was re
ported that; the foreign bankers had de
cided not to attempt gold shipments until
the actual rate lor short sterling had
reached -1.4. while the rate yesterday
wa $4.$SV4. londun also bought stocks
quite heavily during the day. in addition
to this the week's statement of exports
from New York showed an increase of over
S1.WA0U0 over last week, thus giving prom
ise of a continued excess of exports not
withstanding the large imports now being
made. This promise of deferment of gold
hhipments helped to relieve the selling
pressure. The contrary movement of the
stock and , the grain markets.', was again
noticeable as yesterday. The buying by
London was quite a notable factor, and
a. good part of the stocks sold by that cap
ital were bought back. There was evidence
also of a large amount or new purchases
by London. This Included some Southern
preferred, which rose 3 points, showing the
extreme gain on th? lay, and Union Pa
cific and Wabash. Southern preferred was
lso helped by thfl Increase in earnings for
the second week in April of ?2U,620. The
bulk of buying for ixmdon account, how
ever, was of Loui.ivllle & Nashville and St
Paul, the latter again being the leader of
the market in point of activity, and being
several times crossed by liurlington in the
quotations. With the exception of two brief
periods of reaction, due to protit taking, the
course of the market was upward all day.
The active railway shares showed an aver
age net gain or about a point, extending
to 2j m the case of Louisville & Nashville
and Southern breferred. Leather preferred
and Tobacco each showed a net decline of
over a point, the former on Washington
report Indicating the probability of a tariff
on hides. The anthracite coalers showed
less buoyancy than the rest of the list, and
Lackawanna, closed at a loss of 1 per cent.
Pacific Mall also was down on the day.
The closing was dull but rirm. and .slight

Hallway bonds recovered sharitly. with
the speculative Issues leading the move
ment. Ohio Southern firsts were a notable
exception, and. fell t,t per cent, as com-
ared with the preceding sales at 90 on
arch 21. Business was slightly more active
with tho Atchison, Texas Pacific and
Northern Pacific issues registering the ex
treme gains. The sales were 51.12ti.000.

only 24 degrees above at ' 5
o'clock this morning and it was onlv
2." degrees above at S o'clock a drop of 22
degrees from the temperature at the same
time yesterday. The present cold snajr

The Lending Cereal Slumped - Cents

CHICAGO, April 20. Wheat to-day lost
Pic of the price it held at the close yester
day as a result of the less strained feeling
regarding the European war. There was
only a little of the excitement which was
so much of a feature yesterday. Corn was
hrm and advanced c. Oats declined lie
and provisions closed without material
Wheat fell 2c a bushel with a dull thud at
the opening and lay squirming where It
dropped for a matter of fifteen minutes.
May closed yesterday at 75c and was offered
for sale at the opening at from 72Uc down
to 7234c. After lluctuating for a short time
between 73c and 73?c it tried Its hand at a
little climb, but It was so weak It soon lost
its grip and came sliding down. Quotations
for English consols were such a small frac
tion lower that it was at once perceived
no fear of the Grecian-Tufklsh war spread
ing as to include the great powers of Europe
was entertained in the United Kingdom.
French government securities are just as
little affected as the English. The supposed'
pros ects of a general European war hav
ing been the wholo tiding yesterday, the
contrary of that expectation was the con
trolling influence to-day. The market
worked gradually in the direction of lower
prices, although some of the news of the
day was rather bullish. Chicago received
four carloads and shipped 130,525 bu.' Min
neapolis and Duluth got only 2D0 cars, com
pared with 504 a week ago 'and 320 the cor
responding day of last year.
Wheat and Hour clearances from Atlantic
seaboard amounted to the equivalent of
only 119,000 bu. Bradstrtet reported the
worid's visible as having been reduced
2,94J,0C0 bu the last week. Liverpool closed
at an advance of only 2d from Thursday's
close. A Minneapolis miner advised sale of
lO.ouo barrels of nour on acceptance of a
cabled offer to Amsterdan and a local flour
broker reported English acceptance of 2.0U0
sacks at 2c higher than they were willing
to pay before the Easter holidays. After
May had held as low as 74c and July 7414c,
they rose under influence of the good looal
milling demand for wheat to the highest
prices of tho day. It reached 74Hc and July
72?'4C, with closing rates ?4c for May and
73o for July.
Corn ruled firm. The demand from shorts
was the chief cause of tne advance In the
article. The opening was decidedly weak
with wheat, and longs sold freely for a
time, but covering became so vigorous
that prices soon advanced. Exports were
GOtf.uOO bu. May opened lower at 24V4c
ranged between 24c and 2i?ic, closing lirm
at the top price.
Oats opened weak under liberal selling
through sympathy with wheat and quite
a sharp decline was recorded. Later on
good short buying prices rallied, but the
market exhibited at no time the strength
of corn. The aggregate business was rath
er small. Exports were 4G.M.0 bu. May
opened Uc lower at 17c, declined to 10c
and rallied to li'c, where it closed.
Speculative trade in provisions was light
and of a scalping character. Prices dragged
until wheat showed its teeth at the bears
near the close when a recovery of an early
decline occurred and left prices of pork and
lard the same as yesterday with ribs 21Vc
lower. Miy pork closed at $S.47',2, May
lard at $1.20 and May ribs at Ji.72',2.
