The World of Finance and Trade.
Washington; New York; London.
STOCKS ARE HEAVY
Break in Railway Negotiations
Reflected in Market.
SOME LEADERS DECLINE
Reading and Union Pacific Fall, But
Later Recover.
SPECIALTIES REMAIN STRONG
American Can and Others Add to
Their Rise of the First Hour.
Trading Falls Off.
NEW YORK. May 3.-The break In the
negotiations between the eastern railroad
managers and the'r engineers, together
with the unexpected demands of the fire
man on the roads in that territory, was
reflected in general heaviness of today's]
?took market at the opening. Reading,
in the initial dealings, made a maximum ,
decline of H- points and 1'nion Pacific J
fell l'i. United States Steel lost a ma-]
ter al fraction, with declines elsewhere.
The only notab'e gain was in Canadian
Taciflc, which followed its rise in London
with a one-point advance here.
The undertone remained heavy dur
ing the first hour despite a one-point
rally in Reading and some recovery in
1'nion Pacific and United States Steel.
There was considerable pressure upon
Missouri Pacific and Tennessee Cop
per. Rock Island preferred and Con
solidated Gas were down a point.
These were offset by another movement
to new high records in American Can
common and preferred and some recov
ery In American Tobacco from yester
day's weakness.
Standard Railways Sold,
Disappointment was felt in speculative
circles over the unexpected change In
the industrial situation, and this found
expression in further selling of the
standard shares in the railway group.
Union Pacific was the weakest of these
i?sue?. with sympathetic heaviness. In
Reading. Lehigh Valley. New York Cen
tral. Baltimore and Ohio. Louisville and
Nashville and St. Paul, although the de
cline in the latter was more directly at
tributed to its poor earnings for March.
United States Stcc! sold under yesterday's
low on fairly large offerings, and Mis
souri Pacific continued under pressure.
There were counter movements in vari
ous specialties, including American Can
common and preferred, the latter adding
to its rise of the first hour: ^ears-Roe
buck. American Cotton Oil and Pacific
Mail. Trading fell off in marked manner
before noon. Bonds were s:eady.
Specialties Bought Heavily.
Buying orders were executed in va
rious specialties, including the copper
and fertilizer issues. Amalgamated Cop
per was notably buoyant, rising to 83%.
Railroad stocks also made a better
showing, but most of the important
shares still ruled considerably below
yesterday's final figures.
The r:se in the coppers was followed by !
another drive against Union Pacific and i
Reading, which sent those stocks to low- .
es; prices of the week with resultant
weakness in United States Steel. St. Paul,
Lehigh Valley and other important is
sues. There were rumors of a further
breach in the controversy between the
railway managers and their employes, for
which, however, there was no confirma
tion.
COTTON MARKETS.
HEW YORK.
NEW YORK, May ".?The cotton mar
ket opened steady at unchanged prices
to a decline of 2 points and sold off tJ
a r?et loss of from 4 to 6 points right,
alter the call under scattered liquida-1
tion. which appeared to be inspired by j
the failure of the weather map to show J
as much rain as privately reported late,
yesterday. Liverpool made a fairly
steady showing, and the market here
steadied up during the first hour on cov
ering, some support from trade sources
and a little New Orleans buying. Of
ferings were not heavy and the market
was about steady during the middle of
the morning, with prices two or three
points net higher.
Pregpects for unsettled weather did not
seem to Inspire any general buying, and
the market weakened later in the fore
noon owing to an easier turn in Liver
pool, realising by yesterday's buyers for
a reaction, and a renewal of bear pres
sure. Prices sold off to a net loss of,
from lo to 11 points in consequence, but |
ihere was a good deal of covering on this i
hreak. and the market at midday was'
:t or 4 points up from the lowest. Spot

Senators Not Hopeful of an
Early Adjournment of
Congress.
After conferring with a number or
other leaders today, Senator Penrose, the
I republican leader of the Senate, ex
pressed the belief that It was a physical
impossibility to consider the appropria
tion bills and other prospective legislation
before probably July 1. This would be
after the national party conventions.
I am anxious for an early adlourn
ment," he said, "but the tariff debate
has hardly started and some of the larg
est and most Important appropriation bills
are yet to be completed."
Senator Simmons, in charge of the tariff
bills for the democrats, expressed similar
views.
The approximate time of adjournment,
however, is yet uncertain. Some of the
senators and many of the representatives
still believe that Congress will be able
to close its afTairs before the conventions
despite the congestion in the Senate.

CHICAGO.
CHICAGO. May 3.?Probability that
French millers would obtain an ex
tension of time to export flour made
from imported grain had a bullish effect
here today on the market for wheat
The Idea was that the outlook for shiD
ments from the United States would be
considerably Improved. Another in
fluence against the bears came in the
form of assertions .that the Kansas state
report rightly interpreted would, mean
a crop of 69.000.000 bushels, instead of
93.000.000, the popular estimate. Open
ing prices were y4 to % higher. Julv

Promise of heavy receipts for some
