Review of the Markets,
Shipping News and Real Estate Business. REYEIW OF MARKETS New York, April 4.?Stock trading to? day was very sensitive and moved Ir? regularly. After a wild and high open? ing for many stocks realizations of uc tlve interests and depressing efforts on the parj of the professionals tended to produce recessions, particularly in the active specialties, which of late have uttn'ined the largest advances. .The traffle agreement between Third avenue and Manhattan produced a large ad? vance in both of those properties at the opening. Third avenue rising 6 and Manhattan 3 points. This brought about es tensive realizing and the stocks grad? ually receded, Third Avenue losing S on the day and Manhatton half much. Metropolitan lost 3',i, although ] at one time It was down 9V-i on liquida? tion induced by the combination of the | oval companies. Talk of brisker hos? tilities iu the trade war left Sugar 6| points down. The suit to restrain the Brooklyn Transit from leasing a for-j iner rival traction company, together -with realizing on Brooklyn Transit's I large advance caused the stock to ease | oft .1 points. The iron and steel shares ended irregularly changed, with Fed? eral Steel and American Wire down sharply. International Paper lost 4 nnd Chicago Gas 3. Excepting the Coalers, which rose in some eases materially, the general railway list showed little] change, the Grangers being fraction? ally off. Among the specialties tn display strength were Rubber, Tin Plate, Leather preferred, Continental Tobacco nnd Long Island, the last two named rising 3 and 4 respectively. An advance in plug tobacco prices was said to be a reason for the rise in Continental. There was a confusion of views on the stock exchange. Traders were inclined to make much of crop prospects, the advices from the grain regions being mixed as usual .at this season of the year. The impression was rather gen oral that much liquidation had come from active interests, but there was no certainty but that part of their former holdings had been re-purchased at a lower level. Uncertainty as to the im? mediate position of large speculative in? terests was a cause for some of the commission houses selling. Call mon? ey continued firm and ranged from 5 to C, with most of the business at the higher figure. The dealings for the day exceeded a million shares, and the it arket left off weak, not far from tire lowest. General improvements resulted from to-day's bond operations. Total sales, J4.1S5.000. ? United States old 4's coupon advanc? ed V4. and the new 4's -7,;. and the B's and old 4's registered % in the bid price. The total sales of stocks were 1.070,400 chares.

New York, April 4.?The market for cotton futures made a steady start to? day, but later turned weak under a renewal of the liquidation which sent prices lower yesterday. The bear cle? ment hammered the present crop posi? tions quite freely on the break. basing their views nn the continued liberal crop movement and forecasts for better weather In the belt generally. The opening was at unchanged prices to 1 point advance with business for a time very light. During the first hour the mnrket wavered, .news being quite con? flicting and orders few and far between. Shortly after midday, however, unload? ing of old longs was started by n mere bearish semi-weekly report than ex? pected, coupled with estimates for con? tinued moderate receipts. Stop orders were soon reached and for a time the bull crowd was extremely nervous. The near at hand months suffered most In the slump, May selling oft to 5 $0 arid August to 5.90 before the decline was arrested. The handsome profits In sight tempted foreign and local shorts to cover later, but after several reaction? ary turns the market closed quiet and steady at a net loss loss of 1 to 5 points. The re-opening or Liverpool this morn? ing developed n less favorable state of affairs In that market than the crowd had been led to expect. Speculation In futures, according to private advices, were very slack while demand for spotj cotton was decidedly less urgent than before the holidays set In. New York.
