New York
Stock Market
Xcw York, N. Y? May 4.?A definite,
movement toward lower prices gained
considerable headway to-day In the
stock market. The curious apathy
which the market has displayed re?
cently in the face of unsettled mllu
ences disappeared to-day. and Stocks
no longer received such staunch sup?
port as to render them Immune to
these Influences. The market seemed
to be laboring under the strain of both
short selling and liquidation of lung
stock. Prices rallied from lime to
time, and the manner in which large
offerings were made on each recovery
suggested that the influence of liquida?
tion was the . preponderating one.
Bearish activity Increased later in the
day, however, and in the last part of
the session seemed to be concentrat?
ed on United States Steel. large blocks
of which were thrown on the market
In rapid succession. Heading, which
hay been the most active stock dur?
ing most of the past week, was sold
heavily anain to-d.iy. with more tell?
ing effect, the price declining - 5-S
points. One explanation of the move?
ment In this issue which was accepted
widely was that large poo! holdings
were being disposed of.
Bullish operations in specialties were !
continued to-day. hut failed to impart
strength to the standard issues. Inter?
national Harvester was again the
prominent feature of this division, ris?
ing to n prlrr of nine points I
above yesterday's low figure, hut I
yielded later. Buying ?f ihe st"ck
was reported come fr--m brokcriige
Interests, commonly associated with!
inside knowledge of the company's af. i
fairs, and ihe belief that the stock:
may soon receive benefits of tin In?
creased dividend gained further ground
to-day.
With the increase in bearish senti?
ment the market was more inclined
to take cognizance of such adverse in?
fluences as the proposed congressional >
Investigation of several large corpora- i
Hons. Increased labor unrest and the !
Mexican situation. Official advices j
from Mexico, pointing the conclusion
of peace arrangements, did hot offset ?
the effect of disturbing Information re-j
reived In the last few days..
Sales of bonds to-day were the larg- '
est of any day In many weeks. The!
period of activity In this market" has ,
now been in progress about a fort
night, and shows no signs of dlmln- 1
Ishlng. Purchases by individuals, bond!
dealers said to-day, have been large.'
but the great bulk of buying has I uen
for the account of moneyed Instliu-1
tions. The extremely low rates pre?
vailing for money in the open market;
have virtually forced Institutions or
this character to purchase bonds. ]
Time money rates are now frcm 1 to 2 i
per cent, under those prevailing at i
this time last year.
Another cut In the price of nails, |
the second In the lnst fortnight, and a .
meeting of the lending sheet steel
makers for discussion of the mainte?
nance of prices were tho only side?
lights thrown on tho steel nnd Iron
situation to-day. It is increasingly
evident that some o, the smaller Inde- j
pendent companies arc growing restive!
under the restraint Imposed by pre-]
vailing conditions, and that something!
in tho nature of remedial measures:
may be for ? necessary. Some addl-;
tlonsl March rnllrond returns were re-;
celved, and most of them showed de?
creases In earnings. Contrasted with
tho recent experiences of American
railroads Is that of Canadian Pacific,!
whose unabated prosperity was Indi?
cated to-day by Ihe statement that in I
the third week of April its gross re- j
ccipts increased $207.000. After its re- j
cord-breaking advance, the stock re- j
lapsed four points to-day.
Bonds were strong. Total sales, par :
value, $0,027.000. United States gov. I
eminent 2's declined 1-S on call. To?
tal sales for the day, 145.00 shares.

points. Tho market opened barely stoutly nt
tin advance of V points on the obi crop,
?hielt was Influenced by steady cables ami
a continued larce Liverpool spot business,
bill generally 6If7 pelnts lower under new
crop liquidation in response to the more
favorable weather map. As soon as n few
overnight buying orders In the old crop had
been explained nnd executed near positions
turned easy, and in the first half hour ac?
tive months had sold off to n net loss of
from STtl? points. A rally of 4 or e points
then occurred ns n result of coverlnc by old
shotts and a little buying for a turn, but
no aggressive bull support developed, and
the market turned easier asruln after the
official forecasts were published, the lowest
point being reached during the afternoon
when active position sold about 17 5*0 points
under the closlni: figures of last night. Stop?
ps orders were uncovered on this break,
but around 15.14 for July leading bulls be?
came buyers, and Jtuctuattons In the later
tt" itng were nervous nnd irregular with the
old rvT> closing 4 or e points up from the
lowest, although late deliveries were finally
at the lowett level of the day.
In addition to better weather reports, con?
tinued talk of a slack domestic trade de
rhind ar.d prediction? that the week-end fig?
ures would compare less bulllihly with last
year than f;?r the vast several weeks, were
factors on the ,\t -line. The Western belt
forecast, while calling for generally warmer
weather, foreshadowed unsettled conditions
In Oklahoma. Arkansas and parts of Texas,
and private predictions. ha?ed upon the
presence of a low barometer In the North?
west, were for renewed rains before Sunday.
The Eastern belt expects generally fair
weather to-night ar.d to-morrow.

"Good memory is necessary to all achievement. I
know a man who is a graduate of three colleges. This
man is neither bright, interesting nor learned. He's
a dunce. And the reason is that he CANNOT RE?
MEMBER, lie cannot memorize a date or a line of
poetry. His mind is a sieve."
There is great truth in the opening sentence of the
above quotation, and yet we know many successful
men who cannot memorize poetry, others who can't
remember dates, or faces, or names?but there is one
fact all men can and should remember?and we want
them never to forget it -namely, THAT THE VIR?
