NEW TOUIC March 25.
There was a typical dull traders' market on tho Stock ExchniiRo today.
Bomo of tho traders mado efforts to ndvnnco a few ntocks at the opening, und
as tho rcsutt gains woro tnnde In Reading-, Mexican Petroloum nnd a few
other issues, but tho tone generally was heavy. Tho absenco of outside Interest
was moro marked thnn on any preceding day, nnd fluctuations woro deter
mined wholly by the shifting of positions by tho trading element on tho floor.
This element floundered around from ono side to tho other, with thoso who
bought quickly unloading their purchases when they found no outside following.
Novada Consolidated was exceptionally strong, with buying again coming
from tho samo sources which were effcctlvo In causing yesterday's advance,
and tho belief becamo stronger that this buying was In tho Interest of Utah
Copper or its principal holders. Tho action of Anaconda continued to causo
a good deal of comment, although It was generally understood that a lower
prico Is naturally to bo oxpooted in view of tho statements that no Increased
or extra dividend will bo declared on Tuesday. This stock Is now selling four
points above Utah Copper, althougli tho latter Is on a larger dividend basis.
Ono of tho most dlsheartonlng features to thoso committed to tho bull side
Is tho manner in which tho public refrains from buying war-order stocks oven
at substantial concessions.
C. B. MacDonnld, ono of the largest room traders, who Is regarded as a
good Judge of tho market, said that It Is now marking tlmo while absorbing
constant offerings of foreign-owned securities. These sales aro In progress
every da'y not only on tho floor of the Exchange, but over bond dealers counters.
Corn Products was sold by somo of tho pool members, who have becomo
tired of waiting for an ad-anco. In tho last half hour of trading tho announce
ment from Washington that tho Stato Department was advised that four Amer
icans wcro on tho steamor Sussex, torpedoed In tho English Channel, again
created norvousness over the submarlno question. Selling orders came from
numerous sources, nnd tho declines of two points or moro In tho final dealings
-nore wnoiiy quo io meso statements.

CHICAGO, March 25.-A small sell
Ins movement was sufficient to weaken
the wheat market this morning. It was
duo to good rains over the southwest
ern wheat belt and pressure in the mar
ket at Liverpool. It was estimated that
tho United Kingdom would tret 7,500,000
bushels of the shipments from exportins
countries for the week. Tho freight sit
uation showed, less tension.
The weather in Argentina was fine and
the movement there larger. Stocks at ports
were heavy and congestion was reported.
The technical position of tho market hero
was believed to have been weakened by
tho covering movement of yesterday and
buyers were timid. There was not much
Ifeaturejto the dealings.
The receipts at 'Minneapolis and Duluth
today were 375 cars, against 123 cars last
'jrear; at Winnipeg 901 cars, compared with
37 cars; at Chicago 175 cars, against 92
cars.

pared with 1.06 at the end yesterday.

price. After the opening. May rallied to

LONDON", Starch 2G. A renewed rise
In silver nnd tho strength of rubber nnd
copper shnres havo been tho chief flnnn
clnl features of tho week.
Tour Mexican policy pleases Investors
here, who nnttirnlly Ions for pacification
of that country. On tho other hnnd, bank
Inir Interests hero nro nervous about nny
thliiK which might weaken Now York.
Confllctlnr war nnd peace reports con

The Lolccstershlro election was n do
feat for the Dnlly Mall and conscription.
Tho Wnr Study Society, of Copenhagen,
has Just published a careful survey of
tho finances of each belligerent country
and contiguous neutrals llko Sweden nnd
Ilollnnd. It contains 62 quarto pages, nnd
deals mainly with public loans nnd other
means adopted for tho covering of war ox
penses. Its wrltors calculato thnt If tho
war lasts two years, until August 1, tho
French debt will grow from 1,300,000,000
to 2.900.000,000 ; of tho Germans from
250.000.000 to 2,460,000.000; tho Rus
sian from 020,000,000 to 3,000,000.000,
Austria-Hungary from 760,000 to 1,800,
000,000, nnd the British from 700,000.000
to 2,900,000.000. Thus the British, French
and Ilusslan debts are practically equal,
but tho fjprman debt Is tho largest. If
Stato debts nro added. Tho totnl debts of
nil 10 belligerents 'exceed 14,000,000,000.
Tho present British revonuo without
further taxation will cover the now debt
charge, with a handsomo margin for pon
slons. Tho problem for other debts Is be
coming moro Iptrnctable, with revenues
less than beforo tho war and with higher
tariffs, which are designed for protection
rather than for revenue.
Tomorrow I accompany Lord Bryco 10

who was born thoro. Bagehot Is tho
favorite author in Lombard street, and
still takes tho first placo among financial
economists. Ho Invented tho Treasury

Business throughout the country con
tinues to expand. This Is shown very
conclusively In two ways by tho large
Increases In hank clearings from week to
week and tho heavy demand for steel
products and constantly advancing prices,
with predictions being freely made that
prices will go even higher. This week
all cities contributed to the Increase in
clearings, tho gross amount being 49.7
per cent, nbovs the same period of tho pre
vious year.

of tho best authorities on tho Industry In

that the demand for Europe Is large, tho

Gross cnrnlngB of 3G railroads for tho
second week in March wero $11,941,678,
an Increaso of $2,033,951 over the samo
period last year.
Tho Baldwin Locomotlvo "Works lias
taken orders for six engines from tho
Norfolk and Western, 25 from tho Groat
Northern, ono from tho Arlca-La Paz
Hallway, In Chill, and one from the Ash
land Coal and Iron Company.
Tho Great Northern Hallway Is In tho
mnrkct for 30,000,000 feet of lumber. The
contract will total over $360,000.
A talo now rather commonplace Is told
by this week's reports. The pre-eminent
characteristic is unprecedented activity In
all of tho larger lines, distributing as well
as manufacturing, with, however, a rift
or two In tho steady, easy onflow bolng
furnished by Inclement weather retarding
retail trado In the East by growing con
cern over high prices and by the less
pleasant nspect of Mexican affairs, says
Brndstreet's.
' Banks lost to New York Subtreasury,
yesterday, $927,000.
Commercial failures this week in the
United States were 380, against 327 last
Week, 377 the preceding week and 603 the
corresponding week last year. Failures
