FLURRY IIS THE
UOINOOIV MARKET
NEW YORK. May 6.—Explana
tion of the action of financial mar
kets turned on the principal news
item of the day, the alarming- ill
ness of King: Edward. The actual
volume of sales was not large,
but the proportion for London ac
count was larger than usual and
sufficient to give clear notice of
the disposition of the London mar
ket to avail itself of New York
facilities for turning securities
into cash. - -
There is no clear reason why
the passage of the English, suc
cession to the throne should af
fect the value of American secur
ities or, for that matter, English
securities. The precedeht of the
death of Queen Victoria showed
financial markets unruffled.
The present situation differs in
some respects, both political and
financial. The money position In
London is extraordinarily strong,
owing to the measures of recup
eration recntly taken by the Bank
of England.
The stock market was not left
without support, and an effective
midsession rally resulted. It was
accompanied by special strength
in Brooklyn Transit. That stock
and " Chesapeake and Ohio were
influenced by rumors of dividend
increases.
A rally also followed the pub
lication of the preliminary esti
mates of the week's currency
movement.
The money market was easier,
both on call and on time.
Bonds were irregular. Total
sales, par value, $2,381,000.
United States bonds were un
changed on call.

BOSTOX, May 6. — Trading In the Boston cop
per market thi« morning was on a very small
scale, with prices barely changed. The tone,
however, beeius to be rather weak. The' in
dustrial list is much stronger, with substantial
gains in Sboe common ajid Massachusetts com
mon. There has also been rather more inquiry
for the American pneumatic, the preferred sell
ing quite freely at 17%. Pullman and United
Fruit are in demand.

NEW YORK, May C— lt. G. Dun & Co.'s
Weekly Review. of Trade tomorrow will say:
"The unsettled and \u25a0 apprehensive feeling pre
vailing for sonic time in the financial markets,
resulting in declining prices, has been allayed to
some exteut. although there has been a disap
pointing check to the buoyant movement exist
ing in mercantile lines at the beginning of the
year. The causes .«if the financial recession were
partly economic, partly . political. It- is to be
noted, however, that the effect npon the Indus
trial and mercantile situation has beeri slow, and
In some parts of the country it, was hardly no
ticeable.
"Efforts to remove the obstacle of overproduc
tion from the pig iron situation are proving suc
cessful.
*\V continuation of the slight improvement In
the demand for cotton goods by converters,
printers and the manufacturing trades was
noted, but jobber* are holding back awaiting the
coming of the government cotton re|>ort in June,
when they hope for a further revision of prices.
"Fall - River has been selling contracts - on '
wide cloths, to run through June, July and.Au
gust, on a basis of 20.4 cents per pound for
print cloth, yarn construction. Yarns rule slow.
Dressed goods are inactive In first hands, and
except for an^ 1 advance of 5 cents a yard- on' a
siiiplp line of woolen men's wear' little change
is noted in the quiet trade in that quarter."
Bradstreet's tomorrow will say: .."Trade as
a whole is still quiet, pending clearer views of
crop and price outcome, but there Is in evidence
a more cheerful feeling In agricultural sec-,
tiuns. where injury from the recent cold wave
proves to have been : exaggerated. The securi
ties markets are also stronger on the evidences
of enlarging demand for American bonds abroad.
"Best reports 'as to . trade came from the
larger markets of the central west, i northwest
and southwest. . .
"The building trsdeg reports for April show
good gains over earlier, months. , Lumber and
building materials are fairly nctive east and in
good demand in the west. \u25a0 The- iron' trade is
irregular. Pig - iron production is ~ beiDg cur
tailed, bat finishing mills are still well em
'ployi»d. • . " -\u25a0\u25a0.. .. \u25a0'
