WEAKNESS BECOJrES JIORE GENERALLY DISTRIDUTED. Gold Sliipmcnts and Subscrip tions to Foreign Loans Ab sorb Interest of the Da v. New York. Star 12 There was a further expansion In the volume of dealing!) In tho stock market to-day, due to the In creased pressure to sell stocks, tho weak ness belnc; more distributed than was the case yesterday. Much Influence upon sentiment wai pro duced by the Imposing dimensions of the EoJd movement. The May shipments and engagements for Saturday acgresate more than K5,000,X. The larscst amount of cold ever before exported In a full month rrom New York was In Slay, mi. nhen K7.iO.oy) vent out. The sustained level or the foreign exchanxe rate makes It evi dent that the movement has not Io?t Its force and estimates ary widely as lo Ita limits, which have already reached over 21U.0CJ.O0l) since Its inception In April. A large portion of the Panama Canal payment remains to be provided lor, and the current outco evidently Is to meet other requirements than the Panama payment. rOIlEIGN LOANS. FOr one thins. It Is admitted that to day's engagement Is in part against :i sub scription to the Russian loan, which nus taken yesterday. The steady Inflow ot Japanese gold to our Pacific Coast has been an Important offset to New York's exports. The point Is made, however, that the subscriptions to tho Japanese loan here will check the Inflow of gold at San Francisco by providing funds here for Japanese to draw upon, while drafts may be made also upon that fund for pay ments In Cngland. thus adding to the de mand for gold exports. Meantime the Treasury Department has sent notice of the withdrawal of the final 10 per cent Installment of 40 per cent t Government deposits with banks on Slay 2i These withdrawal, when completed, will have taken something like JCo.CW.wj from the banks. As Is well known, thoe deposits had been accumulated in New York In preparation for the Panama pay ment and have contributed to the pletho ric condition of tho money market, whicli. In turn was an Incitement to the enormous exiansion of the loan item. Heavy demands for corporation purposes are still ahead of the money market, it Li not strange that tho rate at which the cosh depletion and loan expansion are car rying tne surplus item towards the van ishing point should have disturbed the as surance which has been manlfet-t over the money market. The stutement of domes tic exports for April, published to-day. con tained a gratifying surprise In the heavy increase in value of cotton exports over last April, Just serving to onset largely the shrinkage In values of foodstuff and relieve tho scarcity of commercial bills in the exchange market. CKOP CONDITION. The gold movement shared In Influence with the continuing effect of the crop con dition and declining tendency of the Iron and steel trade. United States Steel, com mon, established 11 new low record to-day and the preferred stock suffered acutely from the duscusslon of its prospects for maintaining dividends. Further reports were received of de creased railroad earnings. The feeling of general distrust over the stability of tho market led to free throwing off of stocks and sharp breaks In prices in the day. Late covering by room shorts steadied tne closlnjr. The rebound in Consolidated Gas on tho veto of the Kemcn gas bill looked like a squeezs of shorts. Bonds were Irregular. Total sales, par value, 1I.8M.000. United States bonds were unchanged on call.

New York, May 12. Bar stiver U4c -At London; S C-ltd. ; SUMMARY OFST. LOUIS MARKETS Wheat values continued on the downturn In a rather listless market. There was not enough outsljc buying- demand to support future prlcts and nonprofessional senti ment whs generally be.irlslu Favorable weather conditions cut considerable figtiro In the day's trading; With sunshine in nearly all sections of the winter belt, there was little chance for the crop-killers to get In their work. ' There were some scattered damage reports, but these came mainly from sections which would not cut much figure In determining the total output. Rerorts of late seedlnc in thft West and Southwest seemed to Indicate an increase In the acreage under cultivation. Cables showed little strength and there was practically no foreign demand for American breadstuff. Professional manipulators helped the downward movement by kcepln;r thelr hands off the market. This element Is Inclined to encourage the selling. When the market hits the pec which they have ct they may come In on the buying sido and give shorts another squeeze. Spe-cula tlve buying ot Slay and covering caused a fairly large advance in the price of that option. Corn ngnln wjs stromr on limited buying. Ugiit receipts and fairly good cablca were thq main bullish Influences. July wheat opened Uo up and closed ifj'ic off. July com opened Jic up and closed Uc up. July oats closed unchanged. Itccclpts of produce were In fair volume and the prices of fruits and M-sct:ibIc3 were generally easy. Local securities were extremely dull. Trust company Issues had fair support and tractions -a ere off. Yesterday's bank clearings were XJ.III.ra). balances rt,i:S, US. Discount rates wero steady between Vz and t per cent. Spot cotton was steady in the local market. WHEAT AGAIN DECLINES ON BEARISH ADVICES. CKOi' CONDITIONS FAVOIt TUE SELLEKS. Lack of Outside Support and Apathy of Professionals Are the Iiiiliii'' Factors. TVlth only moderate trading, wheat values again declined In yesterday's mar ket. There waa too little professional or outside buying Interest and too much gocd weather to Justify an advance. Cables showed no life, and sentiment was gen erally bearish. Though there were scat tered damage reports, these had Httlo effect In bolstering the market. July wheat opened "4c up and sold at: R3c S3,e3,e. 4c. S3j;c. S3S.C-. 4c S3Sc. S2;c. fc34tfS34c. Wiie.
