New York Stock Market.
• NEW TORK. March 13.— Sentiment in Wall
¦treet took on a more cheerful tone again to
day and an upward tendency of prices was
in force. The movement did not display much
vitality and was mostly centered In a few
stocks, especially Wabash. It had for Its
particular basis the fact that professional
trader* found that they could bid up prices
'above the existing level without being over
whelmed with offerings brought out in conse
quence. This evidence of the cessation of
the pressure to liquidate, which has been a
burden on the market for several days, led to
the Indulgence of a hope that th» bank stat;
mem to-morrow would be more favorable than
has been expected. In view of the continued
heavy drain this week upon cash resources.
The quietness of the money market fostered
this h<-.pe. It Is not unusual for the special
demand for loar.s Incident to the carrying
over of stocks from Friday to Monday to
f-ause a flurry In the caJl loan market on a
Friday. It was feared that the preparation
for the payment cif the $20,000,000 of Standard
«"»i! dividends on Monday would aggravate this
tendency. On th<« contrary the money market
•wan notably calm until 7^j per cent was paid
in thr last five minutes. Traders were dis
posed to reason that the position of the banks
mutt he better than supposed. It was con
sidered possible also that tbe proceeds of the"
Standard Oil dividend might be coming into \
the market by anticipation. Rumors were:
rcn»»M of intended measures of money mar» 1
ket relief by the Treasury Department and it
wis alleged that the presence In Washington
of J. p. Morgan was for the purpose of urg
ing such measures. The proposed measure
look form in the rumors of the redemption
jrin 10 maturity of the outstanding 6 per
>.*nt bonds of the Government. This icsu>-.
Of wfc'rh there if fl3.395.050 still outstand
ing, matures on February 1, 1904.
The rumor met with denials In Washington.
Wuch discussion was riven also to a report
that both houses of Congress would be called
1n extra session early in the fall to ratify
ihe Cuttfin reciprocity treaty and also to act
><n the Aldrlch financial bill or some similar
measure. Tho upward bound in Eurar was
in rc»nenw» to this rumor. The effect of
the»e rumors, which were all without founda
tion. »as evidence of the primary Importance
*t!U auached to the money situation In the
speculative outlook. A sharp reaction In the
L.TiJ^n market after the recent violent jd
lanfe v.g? the occasion of some pront-taking
Oipper. This .was well ab
isortxd and <Jld not cause more than 1 ' i de
r-Mit- In the stock at »r.y time. The bringing
or ¦ *ult %ij the Southern Pacific poo] ln
t*r««u> to enioln the Union Pacific from vot
ing it? holdlRCE of Southern Pacific ejid the
rrantlng of the Injunction had little effect on
the price* of those stocks, but rather quieted
th* speculation In them. The reaction in the
\r.n hour seemed due to profit-taking on the
day's advance by room trader*, although the
iif» in the call money rate to «'<, per cent
• fter noon was an added Influence. The
1 ...•.inc- up of the ra».e to 7^4 per cent by
Irf-latecl borrowers Just before the close was
not siven much significance. The lo*g in
rznh to the sub-tregpury for th» week cf
M,4'i*.ovi0 was offset by the receipt of only j
a few hundred thouEand dollar* on balance
from the Interior. If to-morroW« bank state,
ment accurately reflects these movements in
the rafli Item there must have he»n a loin

Dun's Reviezu of Trade.
NEW YORK. March 13.— R. G. Dun & Co.'s
Weekly Review of Trade to-morrow will say:
Reports from all sections of the country
promise a brisk spring and summer trade.
Orders are coming forward on a large scale
and frequent requests for spring shipments In
dicate that stocks are low and requirements
urgent. The statement has been made repeat
edly of late that traffic blockades were ended,
but as a matter of fact the relief was in every
case of a local nature and was almost Imme
diately followed by so much new buslnass that
congestion returned. At present the Western
shipments are fairly prompt, but freight Is not
coming East In a satisfactory manner. Heavy
distribution of wages makes retail trade active
and prompt In the anthracite regions, yet deal
ers are carrying small stocks of merchandise
a3 a rule. > Activity In building lines is so
great as to occasion frequent comments. Bad
weather retarded retail business at some points
and floods added to the disturbed condition of
tb<» cotton market. Railway earnings con
tinue to exceed previous years' figures, roads
r* porting for the first week of March showing
a gain of 14.1 per cent over last year and of
16 3 per cent over 1001. It Is already almost
certain that railway construction will far ex
ceed even last year's enormous figures, and Hm
ilar conditions exist as to building and bridge
operations, despite the higher range of quota
tions prevailing abroad. Noteworthy strength
again appeared In the minor materials and
principally in copper, which reached the high
est point since 1001.
Failures this week number 139 in the United
States, against 232 last year, and 22 In Canada,
against 31 a year ago.
Bradstreet's on Trade.
NEW YORK. March 13.— Bradstreet's to
morrow will say:
Demand Is active, with staple -prices strong
at close to record levels, despite drawbacks In
the shape of bad roads, labor troubles East
and West and heavy rains, overflowing rivers
and backward farm preparations at the South.
The continued reports of slow and even poor
collections noted for some time past are ac
centuated by. perhaps partly the result of. the
bad condition of the country roads consequent
upon the change in the reason. Labor trou
bles present and prospective especially harass
building trades consuming Iron and steel in
the metropolis. • The traffic congestion, though
improved, still affects the transportation of
coke, lumber, flour and grain. .Railroad;earn
ings are simply magnificent for this time of
the year, the country's receipts in February
showing gains of 14 ' per cent In gross, the
March returns being fully as favorable. Export
trade showed a very notable grain In February
In many lines, but particularly in the ship
ment of corn and cotton. • - ¦ ¦ ¦ ,
Retail business generally has been check*.!
by weather conditions, but this has not mili
tated against business with Jobber*. The lum
ber trade continues active the country over.
Prices art firmer at close to top quotations.
The much-feared check to trade caused by
pa»t heavy advances In staple price* as yet
has failed to materialize. Ths present level
of commodity prloes Is at the highest point
reached In three years. February 1 * movement
was very generally upward. New features ar*
the expansion not«d in demand for crudo and
finished Iron and stoel, a very heavy advance
In the price of copper, higher quotations for
lead, firmer cotton and, wide fluctuations and
wide, steady cereal prices.
.Wheat. Including flour, exports for the week
ending March 12 aggregate 3,366.746. against
2.006,250 bushels in this week a year ago.
Wheat exports since, July 1 aggregate 167.
650,!T,0 bushels, against 1S7.168,21>3 last season.
Business failures In the United States for the
week endinjc March 12 number 178, against 17 1
last week, 224 In the like week of 1003, 207 in
1901. 190 In 1900 and 203 In 1690.

was dull ilnd the market lacked any features
of interest. May opened a shade higher at

shipments and some talk of colder weather

balanced this factor, and the market held
about steady. May closed a shade lower at
There was a fair trade in oats. The senti

active buyers. May closed %c higher at

Potatoes, Onions and Vegetables.
The Potato market continue dull, particularly
for common offerings. Fancy table Burbanks
were fairly steady at unchanged rates. Fifteen
sacks of new Potatoes were received and sold
at steady prices. A car of Sweets from Merced
cleaned up quickly at the recently advanced
quotation. There was very little doing in
Onions and the feeling was weak.
Receipts of bay vegetables were CIS boxes
Rhubarb, 69 boxes Asparagus and S sacks
Peas. Prices of Asparagus were firmer, but
Rhubarb was easy and lower and then was a
considerable quantity unsold at the end of the
day. Peas from* Los Angeles were a shade
lower, but cleaned up well at the easier prices.
String and Wax Beans were offering more
freely, hence the lower prices. The quotations
are for good Beans only.' Some Tomatoes sold
abovf the quotations, but the figures cover the
general run of offerings, which were of poor
quality. Dried Peppers are selling very slowly
and large quantities could be bought below the

¦ There was no more Western Poultry received,
but the receipts of domestic stock were liberal.
However, everything cleaned up well at steady

about balancing.

Butter, Cheese and Eggs.
The warm heavy rain lopped another cent
oft Butter quotations yesterday and the
market was f ull of sellers, with buyers few
and holding: off. For the best creamery 25c
was the ruling figure, with 2t5c for broken
packages, long time, distant delivery, or some
thing of the sort. Dealers tried/'to work off
some of the surplus to Oregon and Washing
ton points, but their wires met with little
Another decline in Cheese Is noted, with
the market weak and slow at the reduction.
Eggs were steady, with the- demand better,
but prices remained the same. The warm
heavy rain will probably stop all further stor
ing for a few days and dealers fear an ac
cumulation of receipts In consequence In spite
of the improved demand. Any posted buysr
could fill his wants at 15c. At the same; time
there w#re no store Eggs obtainable under I
14c, so there are now practically only two
quotations for Eggs — 14e and 15c.
