LONDON EXCHANGE VERY DULL Considerable Strength Displayed by Inter. Met. Issues?Money Continues Easy. Special Dispatch to The Star. NEW YORK. June 26.?A kind of sum- ! mer short-session dullness settled over the stock market today, with the result^ that opening prices were without much change from yesterday, and for some time after the opening the market re mained steady, but with a downward tendency manifested in a majority of both railroad and industrial securities. There were 110 violent declines, nor were there any marked advances, and, in fact, the most noticeable fluctuations were con fined to Reading, which opened at 154%, went to 155, dropped back to 153% and then went up to 155 again. Union Pacific preferred, which two or three days ago caused a great deal of mystery, still unsolved, by a sudden rise from under par to 110, and which yester day lost half of that gain, today sold down to 100%, subsequently rising to 102% in the first hour. c The fluctuations in Union Pacific pre ferred and in Reading were practically the only important features of the mar ket, excep t that "Western Maryland, which several weeks ago was selling at 28 and yesterday closed at 13*4. continued He gradual decline until it reached 12. Local Tractions Active. There was also considerable strength displayed by the Interboro-Metropolitan Issues, the 4% bonds selling up to 80, or a gain of % over yesterday's highest. The common and preferred stocks of this company also ruled a shade higher in the first hour, and Third Avenue retained the advance of three points which It made yesterday upon the announcement of the "reorganization plan, by which the stockholders were to be assessed ?25 per 'iTcannot be said that Londpn had any material effect upon the market here to day, because business on the London stock exchange was very dull, and con sols showed a slight decline. 1 he senti ment in London, as well as here, seemed to be that, although important interests might be accumulating certain securities quietly, against an expected marked ad vance in the fall, there might be a period of July dullness that would make the holding of many speculative issues un profitable for the next few weeks. Brokers Are Solicitous. In this market particularly the absence of a number of well known operators la being felt, and whereas nt one today looked for any sudden break in the mar ket, the unrest over the tariff situa tion in Washington, coupled with a fear that the corporation tax might involve the much governmental supervision, had a tendency to cause traders in the local market to reduce the source of their com mitments pending definite action from Washington and more certain information regarding the crop situation. Money continued so easy, especially in view of the accumulation by the banks and trust companies for the forthcoming disbursement of nearly $2.*>.000,000 in div idends and interest early In July, that some operators who would ordinarily have taken advantage of cheap money to carry investments began to grow cau tious lest the prolonged continuation of cheap money might foreshadow a diminu tion in mercantile activity. COTTON MARKETS. NEW YORK, June 2t>.?The cotton mar ket opened steady at a decline of 2 points (in July, which was influenced by a little scattering liquidation, disappointing Liv erpool futures and better weather re ports, but generally :i to 0 points higher. There appeared to be big overnight buy ing orders around the ring. Spot people supported the near months, and shortly after the opening prices sold up to a net gain of 7a9 points, with all positions making new high records for the season. Heavy realizing caused some irregularity later," but the market held within a point or two of the top 0.1 bullish spot adv'cts. Futures opened steady.

CHICAGO, June 20.?An unexpected de cline of % to %d in the price of wheat at Liverpool caused a weak opening in the market here today, initial quota tions showing losses of % to %a% com pared with yesterday's close. Prices, however, quickly rebounded o4i active general demand based largely on the lib eral export business transacted yester day. The principal demand was for the deferred months and those options showed relatively greater strength than the July delivery. The latter option opened at 1.15% to 1.15%, sold off to 1.15%, and then advanced to 1.15%. The corn market was easy at the start owing to the break in wheat, but raillied early in the day, chiefly on ac count of the upturn in that grain. Trade was quiet the first hour. July opened unchanged to % lower at 70% to 70% and advanced to 70%. Buying of the July delivery by com mission houses and shorts was me fea ture ot early trade in the oats market. As a result of this demand -ne market was firm. July opened unchanged to % higher at .<0% to 50%, and soid up to 50%. Trade in provisions was quiet and the market tailed to reflect a 5 to 10c ad vance in live hogs, sentiment in the.pit early in the day being bearish owing to the heavy realizing 011 the previous ses sion. Prices at the opening were un changed to 5c lower. Liverpool Grain Prices. LIVERPOOL, June 20.?Close: Wheat Spot No. 2 western winter, nominal.

EDWARDS HAD A COLD SO HE COULDN'T PLAY GOLF WITH THE PRESIDENT. But It Didn't Keep Him From the Big Ball Game; Not by a Jugfull! Although Brit?. Gen. Clarence R. Ed wards, chief of the bureau of Insular af fairs, 4s a great lover of the game or golf and frequently is an opponent of President Taft's on the links at Chevy Chase, yesterday he declined an invita tion from the President to join him and two others in a foursome and secretly ?went out to the base ball park to root for the Washington team in Its great game against Boston, thereby disclosing the fart that he is as much of a basa ball fan as a bumblepuppv. Gen. Ed wards begged off from joining the Presi dent and his companions because he was suffering from a cold. He could not re sist, however, the alluring inducement of witnessing a double-header between Washington and Boston, and quietly hied himself away to the game, enjoining every one who kr^ew where he was to secrecy. Upon reaching the base ball park he was confronted with the presence there, as nearby neighbor spectators, of Charley Taft, the President's youngest son. who knows the general very well; one of the White House ushers and the President's two secret service guards. Fearing that Charley might tell the President that he had seen Gen. Edwards at the base ball game and thereby disclose that while his j cold had prevented him from accepting ! the President's Invitation, It had not de terred him from coming to the base bal! game, the general extracted a promise from Charley Tatt that he would not tell his father, and likewise made the White Ho\ise usher and the secret service ! guards give him a similar promise. There upon the general felt more at ease and settled himself to enjoy the game. Just before the second game began Umpire Perrine, who had umpired the first game, came over to the Boston bench and took a seat just In front of the box in which Gen. Edwards sat. Perrine was muttering to himself something about he'd "get them," and Gen. Edwards, thinking he was commenting on the peo ple of Washington, asked him what he : meant. Perrine said he meant to "get j even" with the Washington players, and | expressed himself in no uncertain terms. Of course, the incident got into the news papers. and the President now knows that Gen. Edwards attended the base ball game after he had declined his invitation. The army officer is now considering how he can make amends to the President, and probably will promise not to do so again. London ClAsingr Stocks. LONDON.

Prove to Be Jewel Thieves at Desio Store. CAUGHT BY CLEVER DECOY Strings Tied to Watch Cases Led ta Their Hiding Places. STRING OF PEARLS STILL GONE Chamois Skin Coverings of Jewell Were Attractive to Hungry Four-Footed Thieves. The 8a I vat ore Desio jewels have been recovered. A mystery which. had It been maiie public before, would have driven the Wood ill and Sigel murder mysteries off the front pages of newspaper? to the in side pages ha* been solved. But the credit does not belong to the Washington police. Nay, nay. S*lvotore Desio. himself,, is the Sherlock Holmes who discovered the perpetrators of the crime and recovered the lost valuables But with all his skill he has not been able to capture the thieves. That may come later. For some time Mr. De^io. who owns and operates a jewelry store at 1012 F street northwest, has been missing articles from his place of business. Smalt pieces of jewelry of no great value were the first to go, but later a valuable pearl necklace disappeared. Then it was that Mr. Deaio i^alled on Capt. Boardman to solve the mystery and, if possible, to arrest the robbers. Detectives were put on the case. All the pawn shops in the city were vla ited with no results. Watch and Chain Disappear. A few days ago Mr. Desio sold a gold watch and chain to one of his customers for Wo. The watch was left in the care of the jeweler to be engraved and regu lated. Mr. Desio left it on a slielf of a show case. When he arrived the follow ing morning he discovered that the ar ticles were missing. Monday last the jeweler received two watches from a New York firm which were in chamois cases. They were placed on a table in the store and, a* on the other occasion, when Mr. Desio opened his establishment the next morning, tliry had disappeared. The police were also notified of this robbery, but an investiga tion revealed nothing. Wednesday evening last Mr. Desio re membered a story told him by a window dresser who had missed a number of chamois gloves from a store window and which were later discovered under the window Believing that the missing Jew elry had disappeared in tlie same manner Mr. Desio decided to make an effort tb detect the thieves. Accordingly he secur ed three old watch cases and after plac ing them in small chamois bags tied silk strings to each. Strings Led to Hiding Places. One was placed on the show case from which the gold watch had disappeared, another was placed on the table in'the More and the uiijd on a shelf in the rear of the store. Leaving plenty of low# string to each hag the proprietor closed his establishment for the night. Mr. Desio went to his place early Thurs day morning and upon making an investi gation discovered that all three of the dummies iiad disappeared. The strings, however, all led to rat holes. One of them led back of a glassware showcase in the store, another back of a safe in a rear room, while the third was traced bark of a closet in the rear room. Upon pulling up the strings the dummies were found on the end. The chamois bags had been partly eaten. A search of rat holes In the store de veloped that the gold watch and chain, a brooch and several other small articles of jewelry which had been missed from the place during the past year were all in the place. The string of pearls, how ever, has not as yet been located. WHOLESALE MARKET REPORT. Quotations given below are for lar?? lots. Jobbers' prices are higher. EGGS. ?
