NEW YORK. May 17.—There were n
few more shares dealt In on the stock
exchange today than on yesterday, but
the listless character of the trading
1 was not altered. The market showed
the same position to yield the day's
. extreme changes, the -only difference
I being that yesterday, those changes
were declines made In the first hour
and followed by a slow movement of
retrieval, while today the only ccVistd
erable .gains were established during
the first hour and were slowly yielded
afterwards. . t
The exception was St. Paul, which
made Its highest prices later In the
day, /responding to several distinct
buying movements, which lifted the
price a stage higher each time.
■ The effect of this special movement
on the general list steadily diminished
throughout the dny and practically lost
Its Influence In the later trading.
' Union Pacific showed a special sym
pathy at first and was almost as ac
. tlye as St. Paul Itself, but Its price
dropped and Its activity diminished be
fore the operations in St. Paul closed.
'These operations were attributed very
largely to professional account and the
J many' rumors afloat to account for
.them-associated St. Paul and Northern
Pacific' 1 in one way and another. The
assertions regarding these two com
panies pointed to absorption of one by
the other, the absorbing company vary
ing in the rumor.
Meanwhile Northern Pacific Itself
nnd Great Northern showed . evidence
of some pressure and this largely de
prived the St. Paul movement of its
The market had some help from a
. renewal of reports in circulation in
European financial centers of a revi
■ val.of efforts amongst the powers In
directly Interested to bring about peace
In the far east..
The I London stock market showed
sensible relief from the pressure of be
lated liquidations which has caused
. liquidation there for several days past.
The weakening of the price of wheat
on account of the weather reports
;• showing clearing conditions and more
favorable prospects in the-wlnter wheat
belt helped the market. •;:
.'-Reports of a project on the part of
. the Kansas City Southern for securing
lan Independent outlet to New Orleans
gave some strength to Its stocks.
The most effective check to the In
fluence of the St. Paul movement was
the . heaviness of the United' States
Steel stocks which were depressed
throughout on the fear that the Iron
Age's weekly review of trade condi
tions would make an unfavorable ehovv
lngV The appearance in Wall street of
the advance sheets of that review was
followed by an active selling move
ment, which weakened all of the metal
• (stocks and especially the United States
! Steel stocks. / "
• Excitement was caused by the state
ment that the buying movement of
pIR iron had been almost arrested while
indications were that the Jobbing trade
had overbought early In the year in
the lighter lines of finished iron and
steel, and that the offering of conces
'Blons was of problematical success In
"The feeling Is abroad," said the
Iron Age, ''that a fresh buying move
ment cannot well be expected until well
Into June and that the crop prospects
will have a decided Influence upon the
movement." This broke the market
and wiped out the day's grains for the
There were some rallied on short cov
erings, but the closing was unsettled.
Bonds were steady. Total sales, par

manifested In the wheat market

decline. Ono of these influence!* wns
the weakness of the wheat market nt
Liverpool. More significance, however,

of clear weather In the spring wheat
country, official reports Indicating
clear skies and higher temperatures,
throughout tho northwest. Soon after
the opening, covering by shorts forced
the price of July to 87%@87%c. but a
reaction quickly followed. During the
early part of the session the trudlng
was active, several large holders be
ing liberal sellers.
Sharp declines nt Minneapolis and
Duluth encouraged the bears here.
Later the selling pressure was checked
materially, by an unfounded report of
a Chicago crop expert. Outside this re
port there was little news of a bullish
nature. During the last half hour of
trading shorts were fair purchasers,
hut this demand caused only a slight
rally. The market was weak at the
close with final quotations on July at

attraction in the corn market. The

CURRANTS AND PLUMS ARE
NOW ON THE LIST
EGGS RULE MORE FIRM
Coast Butter Cleaned Up— Old Pota
toes Go Higher— Fish Too Plenti
ful — Onions From Texas — To
matoes Glut the Market
From appen.rn.nees tho fresh fruit pe
riod for the new Reason is in earnest
evidence. Yesterday the first new crop
of red currants came In from Sun Lor
enzo. This was only ono chest, but
the shipment broiißht $I.RO.
The first receipts of blue plums also
came, being forty boxes of ten pounds
each from Penryn, and jobbed at $1.20
The' first apricots In picking boxes
nlso came In from the mountain sec
tions nround BakerslleUl, and in 20
pound boxes jobbed at $1.75.
Oranges also are scarce, the common
navels that a few weeks a«o jobbed at
60 cents a box now bringing $1.00. New
Valenc.lns are $1.25. Lemons are steady
at $1.6501.85 for fancy.
From Troplco 700 trays of strawber
ries were received and ruled at 7 cents
flat. From Moncta 300 trays camo and
jobbed 6(?t>7 cents. All cleaned up un
der active demand.
Cherries were scarcer and no -whites
came In. Of reds and blacks 586 boxes
were received. These jobbed in 10
pound boxes at $1.00^)1.25 and in bulk
10012 cents. None were carried over.
Bananas are still plentiful and many
ripe bunches come. More cars fire ex
pected this week.' Price 304 cents a
EGGS RULT3 FlßM— Fresh ranch
eggs are firm at 21 cents for locals and
19 cents for northern. This is the
price fixed by the egg quotation com
mittee yesterday on the produce ex
change and the committee also snw
fit. to return northern eggs to the list,
as receipts are larger than expected,
owing; to the Rocky Mountain section
getting 1 eggs from the east. "Warm
weather is reported affecting condj
tlons and the country Is ready to meet
trade conditions, as the output is de
CHICAGO EGG NEWS— In Chicago
the- egg situation shows little change.
Receipts have shown a falling: off as
compared with the first of the week,
but the number of cases received are
slightly in advance of the receipts of
last week and are considerably heavier
than a corresponding period a year
ago. The first five days last week
showed 02,432 cases as against 77,140
for a corresponding period last year.
The market has. held around the same
prices quoted last week except there
has been a decline for prime firsts all
the way down, including grades below.
Extras nre quoted at 18 cents and stor
age packed are holding their own at
prices paid last week. Prime firsts are
steady at 16% cents.
It is now conceded that the hold
ings of cooler stock in Chicago are far
in excess of what was reported a short
time ago and those who are In a posi
tion to express an opinion say that
500,000 cases is a moderate figure to
name. Some estimate that the hold
ings are heavier. .
KANSAS CITY EGGS— The week
finds tho Kansas City egg market de
cidedly weaker, but there has been
no lowering of prices, with the excep
tion of easing off a half cent on cur
rent receipts, case count. Eggs were
purchased cheaper last week than at
any time lately, though there -were no
board sales, offerings, however, being
for lower prices than In some days.
Receipts have been fairly liberal and
.while the city demand has been fair it
would not have been sufficient to have
held the market steady had it not been
for a fair demand for eggs for storage.
Quite a lot have been candled during
MORE POTATO NEWS— Opinion is
general that old crop potatoes will be
higher than now quoted. It is said
that the Wisconsin potatoes now in
the mnrket go fast at $1.7501.85 and
that the ordinary Colorado is firm at
[email protected] Receipts are light. While
the new crop is maturing, the big bulk
will not come until the middle of June
and up to that time the old crop will
be ■wanted. Where to get the goods
now seems the problem, as Nevada Is
out of the market and Utah affords
little relief. Northern California Is shy
on stock ns San Francisco takes most
of the goods.
More Tiermuda ' Texas onions will
come today and these will job at $3.50
©4.00 a full crate of 100 pounds. The
market is gradually weakt'iilng, as sll
verskins are touching 2V a &S cents a
pound. Tho crop of reds and Danvers
locally promises to he largo, but the
reason Is said to be late lit least ten
TOMATOKS CO IMIWN-So grent Is
the supply of tomatoes that Mexicans
In slx-baskct crates have touched $2.0/1
flat and are slow at that. Flnrldas nro
fair at $2.25 and choice $2.50, with con T
cessions reported to move tho goods.
Locals from Hollywood are poor 'In
quality, with the trade taking spar
ingly and Jobbing 75c#51.00 a box.
Peas are slightly scarcer at 3<7?4
cents and beans, all kinds weaker at
2<&'3 cents a pound: cabbage is abso
lutely a drug at 85®85 cents a sack:
usparagUß 1b plentiful at SifclO cents;
rhubarb Is plentiful and fairly steady
at HOW7S cents a box.
BUTTER IS STKADYi-At noon yes
terday the steamer from the north with
dairy and creamery coast butter,
landed at San Pedro. This quality Is
cleaned up and tho demand Is active
at 40#42% cents. Valley ia well held
at 45 cents, the creamery board price,
and receipts are sufficient, allowing
some surplus to go Into stornge. He
ports from Elgin say that the output
will not be so heavy as was expected
during the June packing season.
FISH PLENTIFUL— AII fish, except
hullbut. glut the market. Striped bass
are some scarcer. Small locals are
wanted. Demand, while active, can
not take the offerings and yellowtall
and. bonlta have gone to the waste
heaps In large lots.
Crabs and salmon from the north are
In and are only steady.
