Money Yesterday.
March 29.—The speculation

drdand for stocks and the fear of flur
ries to stringent rates begot a spirit of
caution lest the programme for the ad

forced liquidation. No such selling was
In the evidence, the pressure on the n*ar
ket at no time becoming acute.
The speculative position assumed yes
terday on the long side of the market
*eemed to be maintained with some con
'Tdence. During the early part of the
day efforts were made to extend the ad
vance and to Ignore the effect of the
higher call money rates. There was a
^considerable accumulation of stocks at
Nome points and prices were bid up with
some aggressiveness.
When it was seen that the money rate
clung to the 6 per cent, level with a ten
dency to go higher, the efforts to get
prices up were desisted from. The ab

duced by the rise in money confirmed
the supposition that pools and organized
parties which entered the stock market
on the long side this week were supplied
with resources in the way of time loans
to secure them against the vicissitudes of
the call money situation.

wheh a similar disregard tvas shown to
exigencies of the call money market. The
April disbursements of dividends and in
terests are estimated as high as $65,00),
000, of which it is believed $40,000,000 will
be required for April 1 in the settlement
at New York.
The collection of funds to meet this re
quirement was clearly enough responsi
ble for the tightening of money today.
Immediate currency movements were i
also against the market. The sub-treas- j
ury had a credit balance again at the
clearing house for the fourth successive i
day this week. $md the withdrawal from i
the money market by that institution j
since last Friday rose today to $2,307,- '
000 compared with a gain by the banks ■
in the corresponding period of last week
of $331,000. Shipments are being made to
some out-of-town points by express to
meet April 1 requirements. An engage
ment of $1,000,000 gold for import was an
nounced over night, but the parties to
the transaction were reticent as to the
source of the supply. Discounts fell in
London, but hardened in Berlin and ster
ling exchange declined at Paris. The
weekly return of the Bank of England
was weak, but that of the Bank of
France showed an improved position.
Foreign exchange here receded to a
slightly lower level. Rates for time
loans were Unaffected b^ ^h^. rjjse Jn ^calJL
loan rates, ‘and this kept up spec\ilatl»,e
confidence in a relaxation of the money
market next week.
Wall street is inclined to accept a bi
tuminous coal strike as a practical cer
tainty, but professions are heard of a ,
belief that the stock market effect on
the strike has been discounted already. |
The principal consequences of the strike 1
is looked for in tHe iron and steel trade,
although the Iron Age reports that it
does not look aH if consumers are very
much frightened, and that the conces
sions which a number of sellers con
tinue to make occasionally indicate that
some manufacturers of pig iron are du
bious us to the future on the present
level of prices.
The Iron Age Review on the other
hand, roportB increasing sales, and in
quiries for iron and that furnacemen pre
dict that the long-expected buying move
ment will soon start, The extraordinary
comparison of net earnings of railroads
reported for February compared witli
last year kept up a'vfavorable influence
on the stock market. The coincidence of
the sharp fall in Consolidated Gas with
the meeting of the directors aroused
anxiety over the dividend prospect for
tile stock.
Nothing of the early gains remained by
tiie end' of the day, but the appearance
of resistance to tlie depression persisted
The closing was steady.

wet weather In the belt, but after advanc
ing to about the closing prices of yester
day there was a renewal of selling for
both accounts on reports that a coal
strike was well nigh inevitable and a
more favorable weather forecast. This
decline carried May to 11.15 and July to
11.06 when there was another rally on
private wires claiming that Arkansas was
having the heaviest snowstorm of the
season and-rumors that the bull party
would try to run In that scattering short
Interest before the close. Later, however,
the market eased off and us It was
1 found that the hull support did not ma
terialize, and the market in the late
session was rendered' very nervous that
ateamera loading in Savannah and New
Orleans and originally intended for Liver
pool had substitution papers and might
be sent to New York and their cargoes
delivered on May contracts. The mar
ket closed at the low' point of the ses
sion and about 19 points down from the
high level of yesterday.

Dry Goods.
New York. March 29 -Dry goods today
were generally firmer with a satisfactory
trade in progress among jobbers. First
hands asked higher prices and there was
a better demand for all lines of goods
made from print doth yarns, except
narrow print cloths which were slow’
hut firm. The raw silk market showed
more strength. The market on woolen
goods for the day was quiet.
Ware & Leland’s Market Leter.
The sharp break In New Orleans be
fore the close last night had very litile
Influence on the Tdverpool market dur
ing the trading there and this resulted
in a steady opening in the local mar
As the day w'ore on the general ab
sence of outside business left prices to
be supported by the larger interests and
as a result the undertone-was not as
strong as during the session yesterday.
Considerable attention was devoted to
the new orops today and operations In
these most are now on a larger scale.
Interest In May and July seems to be
on the wane and those who are turning
attention to the cotton situation are In
clined to look to the new crops as the
safest field for operations.
Weather has been extremely bad and
during the last few days rainfall has
been so extensive that the new' crop
months have ruled very steady. There, is
an extensive short interest in the new
crops, many operators having sold July
and May on the advance and Incline to
the bear side have been led to take their
losses in the summer months and trans
fer Into the new crop months.
Loveman & Co.’s Market Letter.
All sorts of ridiculous rumors were cir
culated today with thevobject of under
mining confidence in tne market. Our
market advanced early on favorable Liv
erpool. May contracts selling as high
as 11.30. Later In the day there was
some selling on prospects xof clearing
weather, hut the principal selling was
caused by a report from New York that
cotton, originaly intended for export, was
being shipped to New York to deliver on
May. We promptly Investigated this mat
ter and found that while It was true that
cotton was being shipped to New York
from New Orleans this cotton was simply
being exported via New York, owing to
the inability of exporters to secure the
necessary freight room in the certain con
tinental ports. We are most reliably in
formed that one of the laregst continen
tal agencies here have u 11 their freight
room engaged up to May I. There is
such a demand for freight room for cot
ton that shipments of all character are
being refused, and even the coal bunk
ers are being used to store cotton. Con
tinental spinners seem to have held off
buying as long as possible and are now In 1
urgent need of cotton to replenish their
Abercrombie & Co.'* Cotton Letter.
Another day on unfavorable weather
conditions In the belt served to partially
sustain the market. General rains were i
officially ic ported frbm ail over the south- '
ern country. Mississippi and Alabama suf
fering most. Such weather conditions,
however, are usually experienced at this
seaBon of the year, and we may as well
make up our minds to look for alternat
ing showers throughout the month of
April, which month is noted for such
weather. For the immediate future, how
ever, there is a promise for more favor
able weather eondlions, the government
predicting fair weather for the western
half of the cotton belt tonight and to
morrow, clearing for the Mississippi val
ley and occasional rains for the greater
portion of the South Atlantic status. The
continuous rains during the last half of
March have been principally confined to
the central portion of the hell and Ala
bama. Tin* limited amount of cotton to
come forward from plantations hence
forth offers the assurance that the amount
to be held at counted towns and at the
ports at close of this season will be oom
ph ratlvely very small.
Gibert & Clay’* Market Letter.
Liverpool was decidedly discouraged by
the action of the New Orleans market
on the close yesterday, cables seeming j
to intimate that had anything like nor
mal conditions prevailed, a full response
would have ensued. A more extended
China demand constituted the most en
couraging feature of the day. Sales were
14000 bales, 3 i*>lnt decline.
The dampening influence caused by
yesterday’s manipulative decline on the 1
close of the New Orleans market was :
again manifested in today’s market. Some
scattered buying was observed on the
opening, but it soon stopped and prices j
becoming 'heavy, caused some liquida
tion, which owing to the narrowness of
the market, broke values considerably. 1
New York was reported a heavy seller, |
their operations extending to the New
Orleans market, as well and their efforts
were not without results as support of
any kind appeared momentarily dead.
The local cotton market yesterday wa»
unchanged In its condition from the pre
ceding day. The price on spot cotton is
firm and good middling cloned at 11'4
cent a.
The produce market yesterday was
quiet durim «h<» mnrM,ng but a good
•trade prevailed during the afternoon. The
hare condition ot too market In oranges
has caused another advance of twenty
five cents per box In the price. Lemons
are also scarce and "high. (Tillman sweet
potatoes are considerably cheaper than
they have been for several Weeks. The
market Is almost hare of fancy cahhriRp .
the price of which has gone up to tS.-'Mi
2 75 per crate. Morris avenue Is well i
stocked with eggs at 11 and 14 cents 1
and the supply of poultry Is fairly good.
An active day characterised the gro- j
eery market yesterday. Xll kinds of
groceries are selling rapidly and In larg*'
quantities. CJuotation* were unchanged.
