Only two stocks were dealt In on New York 'Change yesterday to the extent of 10.0C0 shares, namely, New Jersey Central and Western Union. The local tycbange neemed to have lost its docile faith In Lon don superior knowledge of the value of American securities, which it was mo ready to acknowledge Wednesday after its costly experience in, giving way too farto timidity on Monday. The New York price refused to conform to the London quotations which had risen after the London opening to above the New York closing. The New York price, on the contrary, obstinately persisted at a lower level than the parity with London. London prices as a conse quence fell off in the final dealings, teeing the persistent "blueness" of the New York market. The pessmlatlc mood of the local dealers discouraged London from buying In this market, even with a higher rine pre vailing in their own market. Arbitrage op erations were insignificant. The close in London showed the prices of Americans still above the New York parity in spite cf declines in sympathy with New York. The etock market as obstinately refused to rc- epond to the weakness in wheat with a rise, on the theory recently prevailing that a European war, while it would Increase the value of wheat, would depreciate American railroad values. Prices sagged all ay end business was almost stagnant, minutes passing without a single quotation being recorded. The market was left entirely to the traders, and these were influenced to some degree by the fact that a large opera tor, recently a bear, but who turned buyer Wednesday, joined the short side again. The reports and opinions regarding the war were very conflicting. There Is a reneral disposition to buy, on belief In the tuccess of the Turks, on the ground that Turkish victory would lead to he intervention of the powers and the speedily ending of the war. The absence of Information from the Turkish forces and the confident latins put forth by the Greeks, together vith tho news that a Russian fleet has sougnt to pass Through the Dardanelles and that Turkey fears aggression from Bulgaria, confused the calculations of stock dealer and gave a pause to the trading. Tho money market continues In a lethargic con dition, and inquirers report that money brokers find new business practically non existent, thus reflecting the general dullness of all business. The same state of things is reported from other centers and con firms the dealers in shares in their attitude of Inactivity. The only feature of any in terest in the day's market was the move ment in the coalers which had an appear ance of aggressive strength. The loan rate for the stocks indicated that the demand came from the short Interest, who were the victims of some professional maneuvering. Tho movements were comewhat erratic. New Jersey Central ranging over points and closing with a net gain of lB. Dela ware & Hudson and Lackawanna moved in sympathy, the former closing unchanged and the latter with a net lofs. Western Union was weak on published reports of an Improved method of telegraphy and on rumors of decreased earnings and suffered a loss of l-2. Union Pacific was In good - demand and gained on the day, closing at a-. The American Spirit shares de- eloped weakness In the closing dealings, the common stock losing lg and the pre ferred 2 per cent. Movements otherwise were narrow and without Interest. Clos ing was weak and with a general decline of a fraction. The railway bond market ruled quiet, but with ;i firm undertone. Fluctuations In the principal isues were usually rarrow and there wm a marked contractlDn In the volume of trading In the high-grade liens. Seme sharp variations were registered either way in the usually neglected liens. The extreme changes were C., S. & C. firsts, which rose . and Toledo, Peoria & Western firsts, which fell 3 per cent. Tho sales were $0'J3,00O. Government bonds were slightly easier on quoted prices, there being no transactions at the board. The following table. prepared by L. W. Louis. Room 11.

The ARricul tnral Department has received reports of the largo shipments of sheep from the stock ranges of the West into the corn belt. It is asserted that there is a large per centage of sheep scab existing on the ranges and this will be spread on the trans migration of the sheep. The disease is not known to be materially more extensive than In recent seasons, but it Is sufficiently general to cause alarm among the agricul tural authorities and steps have been taken to enforce the law and prevent the sending of sheep from one State into another. The department's representatives at various points have been Instructed to warn own ers, transporters and all concerned that the violations of the law will be prose cuted. Telegrams received by the department; to day announce that 2.000 lambs shipped from Nebraska, and more or less affected by the scab, reached Chicago this morning, and that five hundred other lambs from the same point and in the same condition reached Chicago yesterday and were sold there for shipment to the corn regions of Ohio for feeding or future sale for mutton. Secretary Wilson and Chief Salmon, of the Bureau of Animal Industry, had a confer ence over the situation this afternoon and decided to use every means available to protect the herds at large from the disease. Secretary Wilson telegraphed notice that the interstate shipment of infected sheep was against the law, and that the animals must be so disposed of as to comply with the department regulations. Instructions have been given permitting the transporta tion of such animals after being dipped Into the prescribed disinfecting solution, which precautions large numbers of the stockmen, it is said, have omitted to take.

NET DECLINE IN WHEAT WILD FLICTI'ATIOAS DIKING THE DAY OVER A HAXGE OF UC. Short Alert and Rcntfy to TnLp Ad vniitMKTc of Any Favorable Hear eus Other Mr.rketn Dull. CHICAGO. April 22. Wheat was a puzzle to-day. It went up and down like a teeter board, but ended close to the center, with a net decline of He. The market was nervous and was easily moved in either direction. Big cash business and better planting conditions were - factors. Other markets are dull and show but little change in their respective values. Wheat was very strong in the first hour's trading. Opening at from "lc up to 71J2C for May, against yesterday's closing price of 7Ce. it gradually worked up to 74ic and fluctuated between 74,sc and 74?4c for about an hour. At the end of that time the short sellers became convinced the bulls had exhausted their ammunition and on that hypothesis they commenced their work. The result was quickly seen. May tumbling from 74c to TGVc in about ten minutes. Talk of considerable business having been done In wheat' for export from here this forenoon helped keep the price up during the rirst hour and a renewal of such rumors cau.sed it to recover once more the most of the decline last referred to. The details were not forthcoming, how ever, with sufficient degree of definiteness to be convincing and the price yielded again after having sold up to 74Uc for May the second time. The Liverpool market opened at a decline of id per cental for futures and closed at a further loss of from Vsd to ;d for futures and K-d advance spot." The opening was much better than anticipated and was quite influential in the early strength of the local market. Continental markets were all somewhat higher and the cause of their strength was said to be re ports of damage to the French crop from continuous rains and to the Russian crop by frost and drought. Chicago receipts were only ll cars; Minneapolis and Du luth received 3n7 cars, against 271 a week ago and 27 last year. Atlantic port clear ances were only ISf.OOO bu in Hour and wheat together, and that was one of the things that encouraged the shorts. The chief reason for weakness was the reports from the spring wheat country of the vigor of the seeding operations una the rapidity with which the ground had and was still drying. The price got down to 729ic for May on the second turn, but a quick recov ery to 73VjC, and that was the price at the close. Corn was weak at the beginning of the session, influenced by the favorable weath er, but the small decline was taken advan tage of by shorts to cover their lines and prices were soon up again. Trading, as a whole, was lifeless. Exports were liberal again, being 1K6.WK) bu. May opened a shade lower at 24VAc, sold between 24c and 24c. closing at 23"c For the most part oats were quiet with prices following wheat in the main. There was some short buying at intervals, but no interesting features developed. Exports were p2.m bu. May opened a shade lower at Jijs?. advanced to i;ifcl7?8e and reacted to LVs'iiLUc, where it closed. Provisions were easy for lard and steady for pork and ribs. The market was fully as dull as yesterday and price variations were extremely narrow, with trading al most entirely professional. At the close ?X was 2fcc higher, at ?.47'; May 2 ,loT;-at $u2fc. an -May ribs unchanged, at 14.70. Estimated Receipts for Friday Wheat 8 head"' CaFS; atS' 134 C'JrS: hKs.
