NEW YORK. March __).?The Stock *2x
cliangv atmosphere was rather oppres
sivo during to-.i.iv's session. nnd tne <>i
ferings t<i take proflte were nbsorbed with
i'-ss lacilttv lhan on previous days during
tliis week. No better explanation of tho
roactionarv tendehej' of tiie market can
bo found than the falllng off in demand
for stocks. There was som.* msinipuia
tli.n for tbc decline. which was effcctivc
among tho industriais and spcclaiUes,
und whlcli brought out a volume ol olr
fexlngs tbat looked like the. uncoycring
of stop-loss orders. But in the railroad
11st there was no indicaUon ol lorced
selling. , ,,
Tlie prout-taking proceeded apparontl.
in an orderly manner, and any consld
erable recesslbn in prices led to a de?
cline in Ihe. vo-itme of offerlngs and a
aull niarkrt. Stocks which have gon-- np
the most during tlie week were naturaliy;
most. affected. notably the trans-contt
riental railroads and th<* southern Inink
lines. Thero wns some indication of posi
tlve weakness in some <>t the grangers
and the coalers, the tendency in the lal
ter group being due to the rather dlsap
polnting February statement of net ?irn
iug*. for the Reading-Company. rcierc
wero not lacking also points of strength
in the railroad list. Tin* most notable
upward movement of the day was in
stocks of railroads in central traffic t'.rri
torv, and what might be called subsirliary
Vaudrrbilt lines. C. C, C. and St. Louis
led tlie movement. and it was shan-cl ln
bv Chesapeake and Ohio; Pittsburg, C..
C. and St. Louis. Canada Southern. nnd
iii.. tcew york, Chicago and St. Louis
j i.e professed ground of this advanco
was a conference of railroad officials in
this citv. looking to the onforccm-nt of
agroetme.i.ts to mHintain rates. 1 he At?
chison stocks. Louisville. and iNashV-Ile
und oome other less conspicuous stocks
continued strong. Aside from the desire
lo take prolits. tlie. halt in Ihe buying de?
mand was due 10 apprchenslon over tho
eJfect "f tlie gloomy official outgiyings
r.-garding ihe prospect for future divi?
dends 011 the stock of the Sugar Com?
pany. A sharp break in that stock at the
opening seemed to have very little ef?
fect on the mark.-t. but when its weak?
ness wa.s seen to persist, sympathetu:
hcavin*-ss devcloped .*lsewhere in the in?
dustrial list. and among the local traction
.stocks. There was no indicaUon of stift
ness in the monev market. but probably
the relaxc-d demand lor speculatlve pur
poses had something to do with this.
London continued to trade actively in
this market. but with much less inlluence
on sentiment than heretofore.
The bond market continued active nnd
for tho most part strong, though thero
?were points of weakness in tlie list. Total

Hamlet Had It
Shake**pe:ire says that Hamlet "had a
way of looi'-ng before and after," which
would be very liandy for traders to have
nowadays; most of 'em can only loo??
?'AFTER,*' or they wouldn't let this
chance l? buy some cheap "Wheat get
away: There was a standing joke on
many of the old-time jewcllers, who used
lhe old-fashloned large copper cents for
their alloys, that in welghing up the
metals _h'ey would not stlck at a cent in
civing Kood weight, but would throw In
:in extra- one for pood measure. The
value of that great copper disc before
and after melUng can be appreciated
cvon by the uninitiated.
nnd "Don't stiek at a cent" when you
want to buy Wheat, because you can't
expect to get the very bottom. and
WHEAT IS CHEAP AT G5e.; the aver?
age prlc-e of the high and low for the
past 12 years is 67c: think of that. and
do not lose this opportunlty. If you don't
Jradc in Wheat; try us on Siocks or Cot?
ton, and you will find that we have thc
best of facllitics for rjuick- serviee on
moderate. margins. Wc now have 3

NEW YORK. March 29.-COTTOX-The
market for cotton was nervous. lrreguinr
ana gerierally weak to-day. Opening with
prices 1 point higher to 3 points lower. a
selling movement suddenly developed,
with but little reslstance. until the at?
tention of sellers was attracted to t.ic
less favorable character of the reports
from the South respecting -hc status ol
tbe new crop. These reports, while some
what conrHcting as to late planting and
urisatlsfa'ctory germlnatlon for thc more
sbutherly locfilities, with practically no
planting as vet was reportcd for the At?
lantic territory; A good deal of cotton
had latelv been sold upon. the basls of -
heavy acronge. This led to caution.
However. the general market showed a
weak undertone throughout thc session.
The English decline was attributed by
private cables chiefly to bearisli crop ac?
counts from this side. Tho local market
was almost entirely lacking in outside*
support. and dependod on covering by
shorts for business, public cables nOting
a further decline of 1-lGd. in spot prices
and 2%[email protected] l%-64d. in futures. Yarns at
Manchester quiet and very little doing in
cloths were decidedly unsatisfactory". Fol?
lowing tbe opening call, the market broke

selling in the afternoon. which Increased
