prices at about the best level of the day, net S
to 22 points over the final figures of yesterday.
Nezv York Cotton Market.
Fancy river Burbanks are well cleaned up
and a little firmer. Receipts have been light for
some time, the low prices having checked the
movement. Oregon .continue plentiful and
Oull, with a large portion of what came In on
the last steamer still unsold. '' The car of
Sweets that came in on Wednesday cleaned
up quickly at $2 per cental, the stock being
strictly fancy. A few small shipments of new
Potatoes came In from across the bay.
Receipts of Asparagus were light, only 561
boxes being received. There was a good de
mand both locally and for shipment north and
the market cleaned up easily at firmer rates.
It Is reported that the heavy downpour of a few
days ago has Interfered with the cutting and
this, together with the fact that the canners
have commenced packing, accounts for the light
receipts. Rhubarb was weak again, there be
.Ing no outlet for shlppinsr. Receipts were 785
boxes and some very fancy stock brought $1
per box. Bay Peas sold, at a wide range ac
cording to quality. Much of the stock was
very poor, showing the effects of the recent
rain. There were no vegetables received from
Los Angeles.

NEW YORK. A<>ril 2.— The stock market
to-day continued almost wholly In professional
hands and there was a further dwindling in
the volume of operations. The tone of the
market was heavy to weak throughout. The
motives which prompted, the professional oper
ators are difficult to discern. On Tuesday they
bought .stocks with money at 15 per cent in
the confidence thai the call money market
was a!iout to relax. Yesterday they sold stocks
again, although there was a distinct' relax
ation in the call money rate with a promise of
a further growth of- ease. Some other con
siderations apparently intervened which caused
a <juestion whether the easier money market
was destined. to benefit the stock market. The
Southern Pacific Quarrel weighed on the mar
ket. The developments In this controversy
showed nothing to affect directly the value, o£
the securities concerned, but- the bitterness
of feeling shown by the contending -parties
and the boldness of their habitual methods' In
stock market' operations kept alive a fear that
a speculative duel might fee precipitated j In
the market Itself, with probably disastrous
conswjuences to many Innocent onlookers. An
other disturbing factor was the renewai,of
liquidation la Pennsylvania, carrying- it back
to last week's low level. The selling received
a new imj«etus from the February statement
of net earnings, which showed the expenses
increased more- than twice as much as the
increase in gross earnings, with a correspond
ing cut in the net return*. The net earnings
for two months are in consequence over a
million dollars less than for the , 8a,me two
months !ast year. Taken In connection, with
the February Union Pacific statement pub
lished on Tuesday, showing a decrease in net
earnings cf $413,474. there is a disposition to
eurmise that the recent liquidation in that
stock may have been from other than pro
fessional bear sources. The mildness of the
demand for stocks for short account and the
little help given to any rally in the markrt
from tbe demand to cover emphasizes this
Impression. The question of the action to be
taken by the Wabash employes following th«
dissolution of the strike injunction is awaited
with some concern, as was indicated by the
heaviness of the Wabash stocks to-day. The
decline in Western Union had no other ex
planation than the progress reported to be
making toward a commercial basis by the
wireless systems. A sharp break In the local
c-opper market affected Amalgamated Copper.
Tbe attack on Colorado Fuel was professedly
I based on the proposed bond Issue. I^arge cus
torr.s payments, deposits to retire circulation
and come large .miscellaneous collections re
sulted in absorption by the sub-treasury yes
terday of $1,244,000 in spite of the Govern
ment interest payable. Tills proved a disap
pointment. The statements of the great for
eign banks' for the week reflected the enor
mous requirements for the April settlements.
A reflux of funds to the market, however, is
now .in order in both foreign money markets
! ar.tl here also the immediate money situation
is a declining importance.
Bonds were weak. Total sales, par value,
$l.!»O0,000.

cars a year ago.
Dullness prevailed in corn and the general
sentiment was bearish, although the strength
of wheat held prices firm. Trading was largely
local, with considerable changing going on —
selling May and buying July. The cash market
was dull on account of the tie-up of the lake
fleet. After ranging between 43043%c, May
closed He higher at 43V4c. Local receipts were
small at 12S cars — with one of contract grade.
There was only a' small trade In o#s, but
the market was firm In sympathy with the
strength in wheat. The principal buying was
by a leading long, although shorts covered
quite freely. The close was steady with May
unchanged at 33%c after selling between 33*i
@33%c and 34%{f34Vc. Local receipts were
smaller than expected, only 97 cars being re
ceived.
Provisions were dull, but firm, the email
stocks being ; the supporting feature. There
was a little easier tone early on selling of
ribs by packers, but the offerings were well
absorbed ' by commission houses and the
market rallied somewhat. The close was firm
with May pork unchanged at -17.92V&- ' Hay
lard was up 2V6<55c at $10@10 02^i, and ribs
were 5c higher at $9 75.
