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.

aso an 1 In ialnts, oils and hardware firmer
prices are the feature. On Commission row
apples, oranges and bananas are in light eupply
and each day decreases the ftock on hand and
forces prices higher. Poultry, epgs and butter
are firm. Receipts are on the Increase. The wool
iparket begins to attract some attention. It Is
exacted that the market wnlch opens about

SCAB-INFECTED SHEEP.
Large Shipments! from the Western
Hansen to the Corn Belt.
WASHINGTON, April 21. 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.
