I 1 II! ,lf! ,. , , ,, ,., I rtKAnOIAD JUTD OOUKBBOtAtJ, I FniDir. Mr 20. I While) the stock market opened to-day with a 1 promise of Improvement, It did cot Ions retain I it favorable phsie. The bearish element. which has been in the ascendancy In specula I tion (or a considerable period. Intervened and I started a decline that extended through the I active list. A particularly rapid descent In the atook of the Consolidated Gas Company was An lotlmatlpn ot a lowerlnc ot the company's dlvl I dend rate. Bubseauently announcement was I made that the directors had ordered a dlstrl I button of IS Voent. on the Btook for the ourrent I v quarter, which was a reduction of 4 V cent. from the previous payments. It was stated that the cut In the dividend was due to tho B war amonir the gas companies and to the ! prospective effect of the franchise tax upon the company's finances. Later came tho In telligence of tho signing ot the bill by the n j Governor, and this news was mode to servo as I a reason for a renewed attack on tho traction I shares and other stocks affected by It. and co- I ' Incldeutly on the Industrial shares as a whole. I The downward movement In prloes was m finally arrested by a development of strongth B In the railroad shares, which oamo first from a B deolino In wheat on less alarming arop reports, B and next from favorable trafllo returns by B leading lines. An especially notable exhibit was made by the Atchison system, whloh, while reporting only a moderate Increase In B gross earnings In April, showed a heavy de- erease In operating expenses, with a oorre Hl apondlng Increase In net revenues. Compared : with lap', year, operating expenses were brought down from 75 to 02,'i cent, and K net earnings were Increased nearly 43 V B cent. The recovery In prices becatnti gen- eral In the last hour, but the ear Hi Iter losses had bean too great to be V made up except In a few Instances. m Consolidated Gas did not recover with other stocks, except fractionally. The cut In the i dividend was too powerful a drag on It. An il othor stock that displayed pronounced weak B' ness throughout the day was American Sugar Bj' Itsflnlng. There was a report, whloh was not Bj, confirmed, that the dividend on the stock to be K declared next month would be reduced as a Bj eonseiuenco ot losses In tho sugar trade war. H; The strongest ot the traction stocks was Brooklyn Itapld Transit, which closed with a Bj! slight gain from yesterday, and the weakest H was Manhattan. In which, however.the fluotun R tlonswere not sowlduasin Metropolitan Street Bj Railway. London bought some etocks. By Exchango was dull but firm. There was an H! advance of one-eighth cent In demand ex it I ' change, but tho rate still wns loft 1 oent be Hj , Ion- the so-called gold export point. Call Bj f monev-was easy It wns caloulatcd that ths H bank statement to-morrow would show an lu K f erease In cash holding1 and surplus reserves. Hf with a decrenso In loans.
