New York Grain and Produce.
A singular condition prevailed on the street
yesterday. Practically every dealer In Butter
quoted the same price. This has not happened
for years. If this uniformity In quotations pre
vailed always, there would be . no trouble in
quoting correct prices. Generally there is a
wide divergence In quotations^ with every
dealer insisting that he 1b right ,and everybody
else wrong. The market was depressed and
lower, with very large stocks, for which the
outlet was dubious. The gene at opinion is that
still lower prices must rule.
Cheese, too. Is weak, and close buyers can fill
their wants at 12c without difficulty. Stocks
are Increasing.
Eggs continue as ¦¦ before. Receipts are
smaller and the feeling Is less weak If any
thing, but there are large lines of Western
Kggs rolling this way, with dally arrivals,
which go immediately into etore.
Receipts were 40,800 lbs Butter, 1S05 cases

The Apricot Crop.
Mail advices from New York eay: "Private
rrall sflvir-es s-Jj-plementing earlier telegraphic
reports regarding damage to the California
arrtcat crop confirm statements tr.zde as to the
injury done in some Important pro-iuclng sec
tions. One letter coming from a recognized au
thority en apricot conditions state*: There Is
no doubt that the apricot crop In the f'anta
Cl«* Valley ar.d in the Vaeavllle sections hag
b»*n seriously injured, but It is early to form
utiy accurate estimate as to the extent of
rtsjn&jre dore. The injury done wa» caused by
the excessive wet. The fruit did not slip the
pods and the moisture remaining In the fruit
caused decay.' One estimate made by a
brokerage Interest figure* that the losi sus
tained will be heavy, bit estimate being a one
third crop.
"Another letter, issued by G. N. Herbert at
8an Jose, Cal ssy«: 'The condition of the
growing crop of apricots has undergone a rad
ical change. Reports are coming In from all
<i»er the valley to the effect that the apricots
ere dropping from the trees, having rotted.
From ail the Information gathered It eeema
that the damage has been very terious and
that •* hat promised to be an exceedingly heavy
crop is now far below th» average. How
»\er. a week's time will tell the story. The
Berryessa district reports a total loss.'
"In t '.» trade here these advices have caused
BTne ftrmae* to be shown, but the buying
Interests a« a whole do not appear prepared
to accept these early reports of damage with
out Question. Fotne holders of consigned stock
hav« been advised fcy principals on the Coast
tg Trtthflraw temporarily from th* market pend
ing mare definite advice* as to the Injury sus
tained. It 1« not doubted here that some In
jury has been done, but some statements made
already *s to the extent of damage have been
received in «ome Quarters with a liberal re
serv*. Bald a buyer to-fiay: "Without ca.ll-
Ing Into Question the reports at hand on the
apricot situation, I think It Is altogether too
'ir!y to make definite statements aa to the
damage £one. Tftia la a dull period of the
year, and <Jrie<l fruits har« been moving very
nlowiy. «n<l Ooa« Intereeta are apt to jump
%t conclusions too coon. Just at the mo
merit I think buyer* are not In a position to
Booept first reportt without ample verification,
and this can only come when the season is
more progressed.* "

Bnnds were firm for the most part, although
there were some recessions on the late re

NEW YORK. April 15.— The noUble feature
of to-day's stock market was the decided fall
ing off In the volume of business. Aggregate
sales for the day barely reached half a mil
lion shares, compared with over 800,000 share*
yesterday and a million and a quarter on
Monday. There was some continued demand
to cover short contracts to-day, but there was
el«o evidence of a further liquidation of a
substantial but not at all a precipitate char
acter. As prices reached a higher level there
was the Inevitable selling which always fol
lows a violent decline, by lucky traders who
grot in at the bottom and are quick to take
profit* end also on the part of the buyers
of a more influential character, who bought
en the decline to support the market and to
reassure sentiment with the purpose of pre
venting needless sacrifice of values. There was
a large amount of this kind of buying on Mon
day and yesterday morning during the struggle
to turn the market upward. The. fact that
Northern Securities on the curb, ttllhough
quiet, ruled at a level below last night's clone
all day was an additional Incentive to caution
on the long side. Nevertheless therp was con
siderable buying at different . points in ths
I!«t of Femininely good cha'racter and based on
individual causes. Missouri Pacific wa* well
taken all day on Its rer»ort of net earnings
for February, showing an increase, over Feb
ruary of last year of $^73,776. which is no
legs than 7.9 per cent Increase. The other
members of the Gould group moved in sym
pathy. Baltimore and Ohio's report for March
showed an Increase in net earnings of 34
per cent and was freely bought In consequence.
Norfolk and Western movM yp In sympathy
nnd was helped also hy rumor* of a proposed
Increase In the dividend rat*. The annual
meeting of the New York Central stockholders,
without any action toward the new stock Issue
and without any evidence to confirm recent
allegations of a change in control, relieved
some anxiety and had a favorable influence.
Among the Industrials Sugar had the ad
vaniajre of «n advance (n .the refined pro
duct. Metropolitan Street Railway responded
to rumors that the question of Investigation
of its finance* by the local municipal authori
ties was decided in the negative., an advance
in the London copper market helped Amalga
mated Copper and pool operations were mani
fest in United States Leather stocks. A num
ber of the Iron and steel Industrials wen?
Inclined to advance also. The tone of the
whole market changed late In the day, when
Manhattan began to run off on the news that
the demands of the employes had been refused.
The general market reacted and In many cases
fell below last night, the Pacifies and Western
stocks being notably affected. Among th* In
active stocks there waa a drop of 27 points
In Westlnghouse Electric first preferred and 15
points in Fort Worth and Denver CHy
(stamped). The money market continued to
work easier, both for call and time loans.
The sub-treasury Is contributing largely to i.he
local money market by reason of the Increase
In refunding operations and the rates of ex
change in interior points indicate a flow of
currency toward New York. There wan a
stiffening of foreign exchange rates, however,
and an advance In discount rates both in Lon
don and Paris. Discussion continues very
active over the possible bearlngg of the North
ern Securities decision and the probable steps
which will be taken in the event of dissolu
tion of that corporation. The extent to which
the Northern Securities stock has been dis
tributed and the consequent dissemination of
holdings of Northern Pacific and Great North
ern stock which would result from an ex
change for outstanding Northern Securities
stock was a subject of special interest In the
discusElon to-day, as was also the probable
action to be taken on the quarterly dlvideni
on Northern Securities, the regular period for
which is now Imminent. • t

no doubt that the recent cold snap did a good
deal of harm, but some little time will ba neces

CHICAGO. April 15. — Wheat ruled j active,
with covering by shorts one of "the principal
features." Opening prices were strong on
higher cables and on small receipts. May be
ing %@%c higher at 77c to 77 V4c and July
Me to .J»c higher at 71 *&c to 71%c. At the
start the Northwest was inclined to sell July
and .commission • houses sold both May and
July, which resulted In a small decline. May
selling off to 7«J?4c and July down to 71c.
The leading long replenished his holdings at
the low figure and the market readily re
sponded to the demand and turned strong
again. The higher outside markets and the
bullish foreign news, combined with a good
export demand, gave shorts considerable cause
for alarm and there was a good demand frum
that source throughout the day and prices
held steadily strong. After selling up to
77%c May closed ?4<g"%c higher at 77%c, while
July closed with a gain of %@%c at 71*ic to
71 Tic, after t6uching 72c.
Trading In corn was active and. the volume
of business was fairly large, with covering by
shorts the feature. Wet weather, present an.l
prospective, and a good cash and commission
house demand were the main bull factors. The
strength In wheat was also a factor later In
the day. J Closing prices were near the top,
with May %c higher at 44%c.
There was a moderate amount of trading
In oats, with quite a general commission house
business early, but later the market develope-1
Into largely a local affair. The close was
strong, with May %c to %c higher at *33»i
@33T4c ' ,- . *
Provisions were dull and featureless ar.d
•prices had a somewhat easier tendency, due
to the . lower.. prices .for. hogs at the yards.
Packers showed a disposition to support the
market' on all weak spots. Closing prices,
were steady, with May pork 2%c lower; May
lard unchanged and ribs off 2%e.

WHEAT— Foreign futures were higher. Good
rains In Southern Russia relieved the drought
there. There was some talk at Chicago of a
probable decrease or removal of the duty on
Wheat by France.
Chicago advanced le. with Armour buying
to sustain the market. Omaha wired: "Look
out for a general howl from Nebraska over
Winter Wheat. Some say Hessian fly, others
give no cause. We hear that • the W heat
is practically dead." Against this, how
ever, Kansas City wired: "Private parties
with over 100 stations In Nebraska
contradict reports of damage and say
that their / reports are all good." I Kansas City
was firm., with a little Improvement in the de
mand. New York reported 50 loads and Du
luth 30 loads for export. The condition of the
Michigan crop was given at 91, with 17 per
cent of the old crop still in farmers' hands.
This market was unchanged, both as to cash
grain and futures.
