Review of the Markets, Shipping News and Real Estate Business?
REYEIW OF MARKETS FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL ?tocKs, Honey, Exchange, Bonds, Grain, Cotton, Provisions, Etc. New York, March SO.?The movement In stock prices to-day was very Irreg? ular with not changes mixud, but with losses slightly prevailing. Throe stocks, Federal Steel, Brooklyn Rapid Transit ar.d Manhattan figured for nearly halt the total sales on tho exchange, which were not much below a million. Fears of trouble over the Samoan situation gave a generally easier tone to the early market, which subsequently ad? vanced under tho leadership of the Flower stocks and Manhattan and Su? gar, but later eased oft" again on the very high rate for money, 12 per cent, bolus charged before the close for call loons. The banks early in the day ad? vanced the call rate to G per cent. .Many brokers and traders had made early provision for loans, which carried with them over until Monday. On the stock exchange, the rate advanced to 12, and the last loan was 5li. These lluctua tlons were reflected in the variable and nervous movements in many stocks. Washington advices that the Samoan torn plications were not serious, together with the confident manipulations of crime pi the specialties were coincident with some of the highest prices for the clay for these stocks. Federal Steel on the largest dealings of any one stock, advanced closing at the highest. The preferred sympathetically rose i?. Brooklyn Transit, which has been very net:vc and strong nil week, closecVprac? tically unchanged, although at one time U was up :> points and at another ns much below last night. People's Gas. another Flower specialty; moved similarly, but on less wide fluctuations' likewise closing about unchanged. There was no news attending the move? ments In these properties, but n cir? cumstance which attracted much at? tention was the gradual droop of the railway stocks, which were affected by the stringent mohct iry situation and in a measure ueie also Influenced by the divergence of a tlvc operations into the specialties. Humors of a possible co-operative arrangement between Manhattan and Metropolitan, raised the former 5?, the highest quotations be? leg :it the close, and Metropolitan l?. Third Avenue, too, rose five points in expectation that the company's Inter? cut would not suffer n.s much as antici? pated by'impending legislation. Sugar retained 2'^ points of the six point, rise coincident with the advance in the re? fined article. Coutinent.il Tobacco made n fractional advance after a large re ' -; 11 "i the early trading. The market closed with a heavy undertone. ? Uuslnoss In bonds fell off considera? bly to-day and some weak spots drop? ped out.

Now York, March 30.?Speculation in cotton was very slack to-day. loi .il traders having already evened up their accounts in anticipation of the closing of the New York exchange to-iuorrov and Sat?rday, and the closing of the Liverpool exchange to-morrow, Satur? day and Monday. Local covering and liquidation, upon about even t. mis, were features of to-day's trading. There was very little outside Interest either one way or the other after some foreign buying orders had been filled. These orders made their appearance on the opening call, ami with bettor Eng? lish cables than had been looked for, and light receipts, they caused a steady opening at an advance of l(&2 points. Later the market ruled easier and gen? erally quiet. From the highest to the lowest prices of to-day the range was a matter of four points on the more active positions. Weather news, while somewhat conflicting, made a bullish Impression on the market. The official map Indicated frosts for parts of the Atlantic localities, but elsewhere con? ditions were, for the most part, favora? ble, und planters were reported to be I ushtng field work energetically. The market was finally steady, 1 to 5 points net higher.
