Street Well Pleased With
Appointments on Federal
/ Revenue Board
New York, May 4.—The forward move
ment in the stock market, w'hich was ir
progress all of last week except durlnj
Saturday's small reaction, was resumec
today. The upturn was leisurely, with n(
attempt at aggressive operations on th«
buying side, but the strength of the mar
ket's position was unmistakable. Quota
tions advanced steadily until the leading
stocks were 1 to 2 points higher, although
these gains were cut down by a reac
tion in the last hour. Extensive covering
on the recent rise apparently relieved the
pressure against the shorts, and today'*
buying seemed to be principally for thf
long account. The movement of the lasl
week resulted in drawing in some outside
business, and commission house orders
while not large, figured more extensively
in today's trading than heretofore.
The best showing of the day was rhade
in the afternoon, following the announce
ment of President Wilson’s appointments
for the federal reserve board. The streei
was well pleased with today s announce
Railroad stocks were most prominent ir
the day’s rise. Shares of the grain carry
ing roads, in particular, were in request
r - benefiting from the report of crop condi
tions. The Improvement in sentiment to
ward railroad stocks caused by the com
paratively good March return was
strengthened also by advices from the
west to the effect that the roads wrert
moving a good volume of business.
Owing to tlie signs of broadening spec
ulation on the long side, considerable Im
portance was attached to the continued

Wheat Market in the End Is
E^gy 5-8 to 3-4c Net
Chicago, May 4.—Foreign buying
here had an important bullish influence
today on wheat. In the end, the mar
ket was easy, but %@%c to %@%e
net higher. Corn closed %c to % (Sty %c
up. Oats off a shade to %c, and provis
ions with a gain of 2%#7%c.
In the wheat trade it virtually was
conceded on both sides that the situa
tion was a case of phenomenal harvest
promise In this country for 1914
against fairly bullish conditions
throughout the rest of the world. Con
siderable significance, therefore was at
tached to the fact that purchasing on
foreign account today, especially in
September option, attained large pro
portions. Besides world shipments were
light, the supply afloat was the small
est since 1902, Hungary and France re
ported serious crop damage, and there
was a decided falling off in the do
mestic visible stock.
May wheat bulged so suddenly at one
time as to put shorts into a good flurry.
The upturn, however, attracted much
hard winter wheat here from the west,
purchases to arrive being 450,000
bushels. Tightness in regard to the
May delivery was also partially re
lieved by Chicago sales of 650,000
bushels of contract wheat to go to
Delay in Argentine corn shipments, a
condition due to heavy rains starting
afresh, made the corn market hero
strong. Argentine damage estimates
were raised 10 per cent. It was also
half, and were now down to normal,
big stocks had been more than cut in
half, and wer^ now down to normal.
Some of the consequent upturn in
prices though disappeared as a result of
profit taking in the last hour.
Oats at the outset were firm with
other grain, but the good outlook for
the growing crop led to realizing sales
by ilouse brought about a reaction.
Provisions lost much of an early ad
vance. The dullness of the cash trade
offset to some extent the effect of grain
strength and of the lighter run of hogs

Trading Is Not Particularly
Active, With Offerings
Comparatively Light
New York, May 4.—The cotton market
was firmer today on reports that a re
newal of heavy rain In the southwest
over Sunday had necessitated further re
planting: and caused another delay In
the new crop start. Trading: was not
particularly active, but offerings were
comparatively light and the close was
steady with prices net unchanged on
June but generally 6 to 10 points higher.
The market opened steady at an ad
vance of 1 to 6 points In response to the
higher cables. There were quite a good
many over Sunday selling orders around
the ring, which had evidently been In
spired by the declining tendency of the
market here on Saturday. Many of Satur
day's sellers, however, were disappointed
by the showing of the weather, which
had been expected to indicate generally
favorable conditions for over the week
end. and the ealy offerings were readily
absorbd. A few May notices were cir
culated and caused some scattering liqui
dation of that position which ruled rel
atively easy during the early trading,
while there was enough realizing on the
advance in the latter months to cause
some irregularity. OJenerally speaking,
however, the undertone was very steady
and May generally firmed up with the
active months selling about 7 to 13 point
net higher during the afternoon. Slight
reactions followed In the late trading and
the market closed some 3 or 4 points off
from the best. The May premium over
July was reduced somewhat early, but
was recovered late In the day, ruling
around 28 points at the close.
Private cables reported a very steady
market in Liverpool on the rain news from
teh southwesj and houses with Liverpool
connection were considerable buyers of
both old and w'e crop months during the
early trading. Commission houses W'ere
not active enough to indicate that tlie
unfavorable crop news from the south
west was inspiring any fresh outside In
terest of consequence, however, and trad
ing was less active after the close of
Liverpool. It was rumored that one of
the firm which had stopped some of the
first May notices had Issued notices
against 4000 hales this morning, hut it
was also rumored that another house
which had taken up first May notices to
the extent of 10,000 hales was planning to
receive considerable more cotton before
the end of the month.
