Special Correspondence. •
NEW YORK April 20.—Forced cov
ering of shorts gave the market n
temporary appearance of strengtn,
otherwise the situation has been lack
ing in new features. Just now there
is a disposition to await the develop
ment of new tendencies. The growing
season for the crops will soon be open,
and this will be a vital factor in th
country's business preparations and
also in stock market operations. There
were rumors of damage to the winter
wheat crop in certain sections of tb*
country, but these were not of suffi
cient Importance to affect value*.
Now that speculative activity has di
minished, more attention is being paid
to the general condition of business.
Opinions in this respect seem much
divided. Quite a number of our in
dustrial leaders and financial magnates
have been talking business reaction,
and their statements have been mor
or less supplimented by retrenchment
on the part of concerns which they
represent, A certain degree of re
trenchment In projected railroad de
velopment is inevitable, owing first to
the difficulty of raising new capital
and next to the high cost of construc
tion. Already a perceptab)e decrease
Is to be noticed in building operations.
The total projects announced in March
in our leading cities amounted to
$54,000,000 this year, as compared wltn
$56,000.000 last year. This is only a
small decrease of about three per cent,
but It illustrates the tendency. A mod
erate abatement in real estate activ
iy would probably be beneficial, especi
ally in the departmen devoted to the
sale of cheap lots on the installment
nlan to parties who never intend to
build upon or improve the property
which they have purchased.
Caution in Financial Circles.
There has also been a very decided
change in the attitude amongst bank
ers towards their customers. Funds
are readllv obtainable for the conduct
of reeular business operations upon
an accustomed scale, but new enter
prises and enlargements are turned
aside with a uniformity and empha
sis that is in striking contrast with six
or even three months ago. Caution Is
everywhere dominant in financial
circles. At the same time It fs prôn
er to remember that New York is the
very center of the depression. Here
the future Is regarded with much more
distrust than elsewhere. This Is hut
natural for the reason that reactionary
tendencies are first discerned at the
financial center and here exert their
first effect. New York, moreover, has
not yet fully recovered from the ef
fects of overspeculatlin which brought
on the March crash. Those losses
fell chleflv upon this city. From the
Interior all reports continue very en
couraging. Trade outside of New
York is generally described as strong
and active. A hopeful feeling seems
prevalent everywhere, and little sym
pathy is shown yith the depression in
New York. The question is—Will the
the optimism of the interior overcome
fh» dejection which prevails, in New
York. or will the latter grow and
spread itself over the entire country'?
It seems hardly possible that business
can continue on the high pressure
basis which has prevailed for the
last few years. There Is no douât
that a moderate recession in values_
not merely In securities but in com
modities also—would place the coun
try on a more stable basis. Fortuna
tely speculative tendencies have been
restrained by our bankers, and this Is
an element which should give confi
dence. In the Industrial world there
are few signs of overproduction, and
should nothing happen to check con
sumption and the harvest prove satis
factory. we may look for another good
business season. Another blow, how
erer, such as the March collapse In
stocks, would have a detrimental ef
fect on trade, and would, no doubt
compel a further retrenchment than
now seems necessary. The mere fact
that the supply of new capital has
been practically exhausted and that
bankers are persistently discouraging
new enterprises will, of course, result
In a more or less diminished demand
for labor and raw materials. It Is too
early, however, to estimate the effect
of this influence.
One satisfactory feature was the
March returns of our foreign com
merce. Our exports in that month
were $162.000.000 or about $17.000,000
more than In the same period last
year. Our Imports In the same period
were $133,000,000, or $10,000,000 in ex
cess of last year. The net result was
an excess of exports of $29,000,000,
against $32,000,000 in 1906. This Is
an exceedingly satisfactory showing,
since the exceso of exports—although
smaller than last year—was much
above the average, and was realised
in spite of very large importations
which have only once been exceeded.
In exports the gain was chteflly owing
to the large shipments of cotton and
manufactured products. Our ship
ments of food products show a con
stantly declining tendency; hence we
may felicitate ourselves upon an in
crease In the exports of manufactures
In spite of high prices. Our foreign
trade like that of other countries is
showing a very rapid growth. During
the nine months of the fiscal year our
exports reached $1.066,000,000, an In
crease of $15$,000,000 over the same
period last year. Our Imports during
ths nine months aggregated $1,468,
000,000, a gain of $109,000,000 during
the same period. The excess of ex
ports over Imports during the period
was $385,000,000, compared with $430,
000,000 last year. Our net imports of
gold during these nine months have
been $83.800,000, compared with over
$16,800,000 for the same period last
year, an increase of nearly $67,000,000
for the nine months.
In Money Market.
In the Immediate outlook there are
no positive Indications In either dl
rection. Monetary conditions should
become ea8 ler, unless the ra)lroads , n _
slst on Jumping in and absorbing all
the new capital. The tendency of bank
reserves Is toward a higher level and
the monetary situation has been un
doubtedly Improved by contraction at
home and ' abroad enforced since the
March break. It is a question If liquid'
ation resulting from that debacle is
complete either In New York or Lon
don. With conditions so conflicting a
stable market can hardly be antici
pated. There still remains with many
traders a disposition to operate on the
short side, which seems to be Invari
ably met bv determined efforts on the
nart of bulls to force the shorts to
qutrklv cover. In the absence of new'
Influences, therefore, the market is
likelv In the Immediate future to fluc
tuate between comparatively moderate
limits, but with a tepflepey towards
somewhat higher rapye.

adopted the more elaborate name of—Syrtip of Figs and
