MARKET 'SOLDOUT;'
NO STOCK SALES
Unusual Stagnation of Trading
Said Due to Concealed
Railroad Assets
CONFIDENCE IN BONDS FELT
$10,000,000 of Cleveland, Cin
cinnati, Chicago & St. Louis
Debentures Placed
NEW YORK, May 19.—The prnfoH-
Blonal olonifnt In the stock market de
fined It as "sold out" today, moaning
that practically no stocks wore offered
for sale. Tho buying was meager to
tho point of stagnation, but bids had
to bo advanced ntvertheleii to secure
stock. DealinKs fell to a lower level
even than yesterday.
Reading was. most conspicuous; ami
tho operations In that stock were us
crlbed to a spuculative party lately ue
tlve, in Wabashos and Rock Inland.
Claims were circulated of large con
cealed assets in the Heading treasury
in the form of equities in securities
held which are said to be undervalued
In the company's balance sheet. The
Canadian Pacific! rise was accompanied
try rumors of intended increases in dis
bursements of stockholders.
Some of the general developments
were in favor of the advance. More
confidence was felt In the success of
the sale of bonds abroad. Positive
announcement of the placing of $10,
--000,000 of Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago
& St. Louts debentures in France
conduced to this feeling.
At the same time the rate for call
loans ran off to below three per cent,
although the almost total lack of de
mand for stocks left this showing with
out much significance. The banks are
gaining cash both from the subtreas
ury and on the Interior movement. The
retention of the Bank of England's of
ficial discount rate was In accordance)
with expectations.
The feature of the weekly return
again was the growth of $22,835,000 In
government deposits through the In
flow of tax payments and the drawing
down of "other deposits" to the amount
of $18,680,000 to meet these payments,
Tho fact that gold continues to go out
from London to various destinations
makes It likely that the Bank of Eng
land will maintain its control of the
money market rather strictly.
The postponement of the Chesapeake
& Ohio dividend meeting and a re
bound In foreign exchange rates were
instrumental in the rather heavy clos
ing tone of the market.
Bonds were Irregular. Total sales,
par value, $1,152,000.
United States bonds were unchanged
on call. it _

CHICAGO, May 19.— wheat market to
day showed the pervading Influence of the
large concentrated holdings which have con
gested the market whenever any material
quantity of wheat was wanted. .The news of
the day was unmistakably and overwhelmingly
bearish, the only exceptions being the reitera
tion of former reports of any unfavorable sit
uation In this stale as a result of the Hessian
fly. The weather and crop conditions else
where are Ideal, even Kansas telling a far dif
ferent story than heretofore. rain having
caused great Improvement. Buying by shorts
caused firmness early in the day. The market
broke sharply after they had covered, then
rallied to the highest point as a result of
covering by the shorts who had oversold on
1 the break. Leading longs protected their
market today, the prospects of heavy deliveries
here having; a tendency to demoralize matters.
Foreign markets closed tomorrow, and our
markets do not. open until 11 o'clock.
The corn market again sold off on combined
pressure of fine weather, expected larger re
ceipts soon from the country, heavier market-
Ing at country stations In Nebraska, lowa and
Illinois and heavy offerings to the east from
Ohio and Indiana. In fact, the trade assumed
that the after-planting rush was beginning.
The country sold corn here with some freedom
today Leading longs in wheat were helping
corn' by backing some of the corn sold out
yesterday. > . ' „
Oats lost ground although there was a rally
late in the day. in which wheat was a big
help. Weather fine for the growing crop and
offerings from tho interior ara fairly good.
Provisions considerably lower early, but ral
lied later. Nevertheless values were lower
for the day. Considerable long lard sold here
early. Buying scattered. Large packers were
leading sellers. : • ,
