months ago.

^ handsome returns.
Has from the day we made the first offering of treasury stock to the public

Money Situation.
The London Market Wat Ball and
Mostly of Professional Character?
"Pennsy" One of the Strongest
and Most Active Features.
Special Dispatch to The Star.
NEW YORK, April 7.?Not much was to
have been expected of today's abbreviated
session In the stock market, hence there was
no eood reason) for surprise or disappoint
ment at the results shown. Interest con
tinued concentrated upon the monetary
situation, and most of the morning's dis
cussion was occupied with the probable
showing to he made In the weekly bank
statement. The various preliminary esti
mates of the loss In cash which the banks
have suffered this week ranged from $6,
000.000 to over $10,000,000,the smaller fore
cast being much In excess of the entire
amount of last week's surplus reserves.
Apart from the apparent betterment In
the labor situation In the coal regions,
there was little of interest In the morning s
news relating to the general market or
particular stocks.
The foreign exchange market was aga.n
weak, but there were no further definite
announcements of engagements of gold
for import, although London advices were
to the effect that an active American in
quiry for the metal was detected there.
The London stock market was dull and
irregular in advance of the fortnightly set
tlement upon the stock exchange there, but
American stocks were generally steady.
Little was done here, however, for foreign
The local dealings were In small volume
and for the most part of a professional
Active Features of Railway.
Pennsylvania continued one of the strong
est and most active features of the railway
list, but otherwise very Irregular tenden
cies prevailed there. Other active stocks
In this department were Union Pacific,
Reading, Erie, Atchison, the bituminous
coal stocks and Rock Island. Amalgamated
Copper, the United States Steel shares. Na
tional Lead and Consolidated Gas furnished
the bulk of the transactions In the Indus
trial and miscellaneous group, where price
changes were also irregular and generally
A very weak bank position had been fore
shadowed throughout the week In the strin
gent conditions which prevailed in the
money market, but today's bank statement
made even a weaker showing than had been
commonly looked for.
The most disappointing feature of the
statement was the increase In the loan
Item, as It had been generally expected that
that account would show a sufficient cur
tailment as to reduce the net loss In re
Bank Statement Disappointing.
On the contrary, the loan account showed
an expansion of $7,205,000, although It Is
likely that the real position of the banks as
of yesterday would have set forth a reduc
tion in that item.
On account of the employment of the
average system in making up the bank
statement, the full extent of the reduction
In that Item will probably not appear until
next Saturday. The loss in actual cash
amounted to $7,904,000, a sum fairly well
In line with the preliminary estimates. The
deposit account fell away J&tfcOOO, and re
serves decreased $7,691,000.
The bank statement accordingly showed
a deficit below the legal requirements of
$2,561,000. The last deficit shown was on
December 0 of last year, and amounted to
$1,246,000, and previously on November 11,
1905, when the deficit was $2,428,000. No
previous deficit had been shown since Sep
tember of 1902. Surplus reserves in the cor
responding week of last year were $8,682k
000, in 1904, $22,916,000, and In 190?, $3,741,

NEW YORK. April 7.?The opinion was
confidently expressed this morning that as
soon as 'the money appears easier the stock
market will become materially more active
and Advance rather sharply. The senti

of higher prices. I .ittie bearish talk is
heard. It 1* generally accepted as a fact
that the bituminous coal strike Is practi

given by Wall street Interests to the an

The idea is very generally entertained
that the money market will be considerably

the large increase in the number of new

banks thirty or forty may ha found now,
all apparently prosperous. Another well
informed railroad official says that the
earnings for the railroads as a whole In
this country continue surprisingly large.

The Black Diamond of Chicago today
"Owing to the Rtrlke on Monday In prac
tically all of the bituminous mines In the
central and southwestern bituminous fields,
the market on bituminous product Is in
more or less doubt and is largely regulated
by the amount of coal offered for sale by
tlie individual shipping company and the
urgenscy with which it must be had by
the consumer. As a matter of fact, prices
generally on coal from the territory afTect
ed are no higher than they were a week
ago, while in some Instances they have
been lower. In one or two Instances de
murrage product has been offered in the
Chicago market and considerable conces
sions 'have been made by the selling com
pany to move it and avoid additional de
murrage charges. ' Following the activity
which previously prevailed, the market can
be characterised as dull and devoid of In
terest aside from the strike feature. This
Is accounted for on the ground that the
large consuming interests have prepared
for the present emergency to a greater ex
tent than was generally anticipated and
will not be In the market for further sup
plies until stocks in hand have been de
pleted to some extent and until they have
better Information than Is obtainable at
present as to the probable duration of the

It is reported from Pittsburg that the
directors of the "Panhandle" railroad at
their meeting next Tuesday will authorize

According, to private cable advices re
ceived by bankers here today, the amount
of South African gold which will arrive at
London today or Monday is approximately
?400,000, or $2,000,000- It is expected that
arrangements will be made for the import
of the greater part of this to New York.
A prominent international banker expressed
opinion that New York would have no dif
ficulty in securing additional amounts of
foreign gold, and added: "We shall be able
to import all the gold we need."
Supply of Vegetables is All That
Could Be Desired?Egg Situa
tion Booming.
"I hardly know what the Potomac river
fishermen are going to do this season," one
of the dealers In marine products said to a
Star reportor. "The weather has been
against them, and the catch of shad and
herring has been small. With a continu
ance of the warm weather, however, there
may come an Improvement which will op
erate to the advantage of the fishermen and
give them a short but profitable season."
Shad and herring are becoming more plen
tiful each day, and the prices are corre
spondingly lower. It is stated that most of
the fish are being caught la the Chesa
peake bay, and that only a few of them are
received from the river shores.' Roe shad
were selling at CO cents this morning, or
about one-tialf the price that was charged
for then a week ago. Buck shad are quoted
at 80 cents each. Shad roe is In great de
mand at this season and dealers are now
able to supply the demand for them on ac
count of tits Cheaper prices prevailing.
Heretofore they have been too high, and
buyers were not willing to pay the prices
charged. Fishermen along the Potomac
river are catching more white perch than
they have caught during spring seasons for
a number of years, but many of them are
small. The sight of barrels of tfee small j
