Principal Trading Done by Bears
in Covering—Steel Shares
Sold Persistently
Additions to Gold Exports Aid the
Depression. Though Call
Loans Are Easier
[Associated Press!
NEW YORK, April 20—Specific lies were
not clearly perceptible for the weakness of
stocka today. The demand was apathetic.
Occasional buying from the bears to realise
profl by covering shorts constituted the prin
cipal demand, but prices ended at the lowest.
The persistent selling of United States Steel
■was of notable sentimental effect on .the gen
eral market. The dealings In steel made lip a
largo proportion of the aggregate. Estimates
of the earnings for the fiscal year to tie re
ported at the directors' meeting next Tues
day accompanied the selling. Assertions thai
the total would fall below the 140,000,000 total
of the December report seemed to discourage
stockholders, although the lull In trade has
been well known.
The coppers were even weaker than steel
and were affected, also, by the falling price
of the metal. The movement to reduce the
output of pig Iron, coupled with the advocacy
of curtailment of copper production. Implies
an unhealthy condition In those trades. It Is
probable some <!• gree of speculative depres
sion was reflected from the commodities mur
lihis on the stock market. This Is contrary
to the usual order, owing to the fact that the
declines in grain and cotton are due usually
to promising crop prospects. The effect of the
government Inquisitions Into the cotton poo!
Ik held responsible for much of the unsetlle
The additions to the gold export movement
during the day were nn influence towards
depression, although no direct effect wan per
ceptible in tßi tone of the money market.
Hates for call loans, In fact, were somewhat
f-asler and the demand for time loans also is
reported to be almost stagnant. Discount nites
were firmer in Ixindon, and It Is to that cen
ter that attention is directed for money mar
ket Influences.

of long wheat was unloaded during the. day,
first on 'the early slump, during which the
market was almost demoralises, and later on
the harder spots In the market. Nevertheless
there was a decreasing quantity of wheat on

sale on the swell*, fame of the larger shorts
wno covered tfcrly sold a little wheat on the
advance*, but It whs evidently for the pur
pose .if feeling: the market out, and It was not
Important In volume. Outside cash anil May
delivery markets were weak. There In no
change in the Immediate situation and no call
for any advance other than that resulting from
shorts covering and from less pressure now of
long property, which has bean pretty well
liquidated In the decline of July from 1034 to
99'», and September from 10714 to 97H.
Corn Hhowed substantial improvement today.
There was an early period of weakness, fol
lowing wheat. i"it there wo heavy buying at
the decline. Leading shorts In May delivery,
as well m the cash grain concerns, were food
buyers of May, narrowing; ita discount some
what an compared with prices of distant
months. There Is a better corn situation at
the moment. Borne little Improvement In
eastern call and little of the corn previously
■old belnit ordered out today. Nevertheless,
the rast us a rule Is holding off pending May
delivery day. The corn posted as out of con
dition yesterday and today at Now York
proves to have been steamer and No. 4 corn.
Oats followed other (Trains—weak and lower
on a similar eelllng rush at the outset, then
recovered because of Important covering by
short*. There also was some fairly good new
Invoatmetit buying and some call from
Provisions ranged higher, although there was
a .iip following the opening bulge. There was
better foreign call tor lard today, which de
veloped thai offerings In the pit were much
reduced. The market was extremely sennit Ivo
today. A llttlo new Investment buying helped
to improve the situation anil malt* the absence
of floating pit auppllM more apparent.
