••NFW YOSK, April 17.— The market for
. Mocks, fallowed about the same course today
rt it did . yeeterday. The early advance np
p«sa'rtd- to be in the nature of testing opera
\ tion'o. fend the indifference of the outside r».
rpon?o to 'this psoved so far disappointing to
the preferential element^- which was respons-
JbJe' fcr the mo»«ment, that they retreated
vt-ry gfneral!y from their position and resoM
jLheir takings. Foreign market* had resumed
riper^tlor-s today after their prolonged holiday
, ana a good augury was drawn from the tran
cuillxty- with which. New York's large acqul
. eitions of gold were acce^iid. Sterling ex
change mas sustained above th* level where
cold could be shipped at a profit, 'even with
the allowance under the United States Treas
ury "plan .of deposits of urox-ernment funds at
the tasks' against engagements of gold for im
port. The demand on London's gold supply
was so far relaxed that the price ot bar gold
vas. allowed to drop back % pence an ounce
end the London discount rate unaffected.
Tfce softening of our own market was bo pro
nounced as to lessen - the attraction for se
curing additional gold. The call loan rale
feU today to below four pence before the ac
tive lending period of the day was over, rate»
co time loar* relapsed to 5'J for 60 and 00
days and 5 per cent for six and nine months.
The efficacy cf the measure adopted by, the
United State* Treasury to encourage gold im- '
]>orts In breaking the stringency of the money
market was therefore beyond question, al
though the criticism was heard that it was
poffrtble for foreign money market* to adopt
' protective measures for their (cold eup]4y.
The, attempt to put .up price* of stocks m«t
vlth more Immediate obstruction In the form
of: larce' offexißSs. the source of ._ which- left
room for the suspicion that liquidation of long
.holdlnrs 'w**» in progress. • Reading suffered
coma from the uncertainty over the anthracite
coal labor outlook and from reports of riOt
ous outbreak* In the coal regions. Pennsyl
vania,- on the contrary, was . strong. . The
ceurso of speculative liquidation In Amalfrara
oted Copper was' of large sentimental effect.
Trices were at the lowest during the final
hour, but closed with some recovery and with
kb irregular tone. - •
