FOR SECURITIES
NEW YORK, April
sional operators in stocks showed,
growing discouragement, today
over the apathy of the public in
terest in the market. "Where
dealings have dwindled to a mera
exchange of contracts between
traders on the floor and_ to a
matching of wits in the dex
terity with which a position may
be shifted from one to the other
side of the market the net result
Is likely to be nothing.
A factor in the hesitation is the
question over a possible decision
of th<s supreme court Monday in
the American tobacco case. The
expectation persists in stock mar
ket circles that the decision may
be handed down at that time. The
conviction is general . that widely
divergent results will follow in
the stock market from the alter
natives of the "decision. The ap
proach of such an expected crisis
discourages all ventures.
The beginning of the gold out
flow was another repressive In
fluence. The languid borrowing
demand for money, it is feared,
indicates an attitude of hesitation
in general business similar to that
in the stock market.
The large eastern customs re
receipts of the government for
March show that the heavy vol
ume of imports is sustained and
the unfavorable trade balance is
maintained. Little attention was
paid to the money market In the
existing lethargy of the stock
market.
Weather news from the crop
regions holds a large share of
attention. Speculation is prepar
ing itself for the forthcoming
government crop report, and the
tone of the state reports now
being received foreshadows a
marked deterioration in the winter
wheat condition.
The suspension of soft coal min
ing and a strike of the New York
harbor pilots kept attention fo
cused on the subject of labor dis
putes.
The slight decreases reported
in the visible supply of copper
from London was more than cov
ered by the severe drop in the
March exports of copper from this
country.
Bonds were irregular. Total
sales (par value), $2,261,000.
United States bonds were un
changed on call.

"Weekly Trade Revie^v
NEW YORK. April I.— Bradstreet's tomorrow
will »ay: '."Trade reports are rather more irreg
ula. with distribution rather less active than in
the preceding two. weeks. Retail trade, so far,
has been better than a year ago, but from many,,
centers reports are of the volume of jobbing
trade not being \u25a0 up : to expectations," for. which
high prices and industrial unrest are assigned as
reasons. .
•"In the industries 'diverse movements are
shown. Pending settlement of wages, . several
thousand coal miners are reported stopping work.
In the cotton goods trade the curtailment, move
ment has mnde further progress.. \u25a0 v
'•Recent reductions of prices: by jobbers have
brought out varying responses. Northern cotton
mill curtailruout is considerable,' though less
marked than at the southern. . because or differ
ent goods produced. On the other hand, a favor
able development, so far as purchasing power is
concerned. Is the grunting of higher wages to
300.000 railroad employes... . .
"Business failures tor the week, endlug with
March 81 in 'the United States were 229, against
231 last week, 204 iv 1909, 2i7 in 100S, 137 in
1907 and 151 in 1900.
"Wheat (including flour) exports from the
United States and Canada for the week ending.
March -31 - aggregate 1,744,27!* bushels, against
1,163.578 last week and 1.413,503 this week last
year. For the 39 weoks ending March 31 exports
are 115,269,574 bushels, against 145,514,455 In
the corresponding period. lnst year. . •
"Corn exports for the nook are \u25a0 1,085.351 bush
els, against 888,675 last week and 1,102.244 in
1909. For the S9 werks ending March 31 corn
exports are 22,734552 bushels, against 24,822.000
last year." . .
" R. G. Dun & Co.'s weekly review of trade to
morrow will say:
.. "While the trade development is irregular,
revealing diversified conditions iv different sec
tions of the country, tbe volume as a whole is so
large and makes such steady gains over last year
that there can be no question as to Its substan
tial character. \u25a0 . . \u25a0\u25a0 ' •\u25a0 . '• '. .'.-•"
"The labor situation is much less acute and
notices of advances by railroads and leading In
dustries promise much for the future. The influ
eni-e of previous uncertainties was mostly felt in
the speculative markets.
"In the finished branches of iron and steel
predictions are rncde that shipments in March
will exceed the best previous records. New
business comes forward in well sustained volume
and the fact that prices remain, stationary is
attributed to the largely Increased capacity of
the mills. Export business Iv rails has been a
feature, recent sales for shipment abroad aggre
gating no less than 70, <HK> tons. -Conditions In
pig Iron remain very much mixed, with a further
sagging of prices iv all directions^" '

Francisco custom house in March, compared with

$700,075 a year ago. The total receipts for the
first three month* of th« year were $t,463,509,
