Hear operators tested the market for weak spots and by concentrating their attack on Lehigh Valley soon had all other shares reacting. Lehigh Valley dropped from 141 to 330. but the general market followed re sistance. when opening gains had been lost. Early Movement Uncertain. Mthough the market was on a higher level most of th? morning, the move- j n:ent was uncertain and irregular. Raiding operations, such as have been ! of almost daily occurrence for the last week, were resumed, with L+'high Valley the particular object of attack. A sharp depression in that stock check ed the early improvement, but although initial trains were canceled the market later resumed its upward swing and by noon prices had mounted again to the early level. Success of the bears in seeking out vulnerable points checked buying and the noonday rally was not vigorous. Missouri Pacific was especially suscep tible to attack. Tt dropped 414 points ''? the lowest in more than a decade. ca<ie. Bonds steady. Bonds Are Steady.

The last previous attempt to assassi nate a mayor of New York was made by .lames J. Gallagher, who shot Mayor Gaynor August 9, 1910. Gallagher's bullet found its mark and remained in the mayor's throat. Many believed that the wound hastened Gaynor's death. Gallagher, who cherished a 'fancied grievance against the mayor, tried to kill him as he stood on the deck of a steam ship at the Iioboken dock ready to sali for Europe. He then fired at Robert Adamson. Gaynor's secretary, and at Street Cleaning Commissioner "Big Bill" Edwards. Adamson escaped, but Ed wards received a slight wound in the arm. Gallagher was declared insane and sent to an asylum at Trenton, N. J., where he died of paresis February 3, 1913. Secretary McAdoo Asks for $10,000. Ten thousand dollars for technical and engineering services in connection with the preparation of the plan for the new national archives building and the new patent office building was asked for to day by Secretary McAdoo in a commu nication to the House of Representatives. Secretary McAdoo also suggested that civil service requirement be waived in the case of employes to be hired on the patent office plans. The law permitting Congress to appropriate money for the archives building was framed regardless of the civil service, and the Secretary asks that th^ same privileges of appoint ing anybov be granted for the patent office job.

ONLY FIFTEEN RECRUITS LINE UP WITH COXEY Second Day of March on Washing ton Finds the '"Army" Sadly Depleted. CANTON. April 17.?Fifteen marchers made up the rank and file of "General Jacob S. Coxey's "army'' of unemployed when it fell into line at 9 o'clock this morning and set out for the village of Osnaburg. six miles away. A large crowd saw the "general's"* aids assemble the "army" from Socialist Hall and from nearbv saloons to make the start today on the second leg of the pilgrimage to Washington. \ corps of five fifers. organized by "Lieutenant" Paul Anderson was near the head of the procession this morning and provided music at intervals. Eleven vear-old David Coxey. the genoral s son and courier of the "army. headed the line of march, riding his pony. Chaplain Doesn't March. At the last minute the "army" chap lain. Rev. Harry I'- Wilson of Rockdale, Pa., decided not to march to Osnaburg, but told the "general** that he would take an interurban car and meet him in Alliance tonight. None of the sixtyor more high school boys, who marched with the "army" from Massillon yester dav put in an appearance this morning. "Lieutenant" Anderson, the ' army re cruiting officer, had worked late last night and early this morning scouring the brickyards and railroad tracks near Canton in an effort to sign up more recruits and gave out the names and ad dresses of twenty-eight men who had agreed to march today, but only fifteen put in an appearance. , Coxey Goes to a Hotel.

CHICAGO. CHICAGO, April 17.?Wheat developed firmness today after some weakness at the start. Cables were steady and pre diction of rain had not been fulfilled 'n the domestic winter crop belt. Kansas reports seemed less reassuring. the weather being windy and hot with several counties reporting loss of acreage. Opening prices, which varied from >4 off to H up, were followed by some advance all around. Although corn gave way for a while under a rush of selling the market be came steadv as a result of buying on the part of leading speculators. The east was said to be canceling American pur chases and substituting Argentine. On the other hand, it was pointed out that domestic primary shipments were con siderably in excess of receipts. Prices opened <?? to % lower, but soon recovered neariv all of the decline. Oats held steady. Treading houses were good buyers. The smaller packers save support to provisions. First transactions ranged from ."c oft to a like amount "P. and the market seemed disposed to keep within about such limits. 1fl ,, Butter?Lower: creameries, i?a^4.
