Weekly Letter l-'nmi Henry Clews. New York, April 17 Owing to ap proach of the Knstcr holidays one of tho dullest weeks of the jour has Just ended. With tluce days' suspension of business In prospect it was Inevitable' thlit transactions should be reduced to the minimum. .So far as the llliniuihl undertone Is concerned no change Is apparent, al though stagnation upon the Stoik Lxchiiltgc everts a disheartening ef fect upon many mllmls. Tho chief hope of Wall Street iiLthe moment Is bused upon the prospects for a plclitlrul supply of cheap money fur ad )cat, the next four months. The crop outlook alio affords considerable encouragement, and these facts, add ed to the belief that all knovvji un favorable conditions fiavo been pretty generally discounted, afford a basis Tor. I'onltdeuee In tho future which Is renlfy.tho reason why Wall Street to day Is, relatively speaking, about the inoft liucrtu,8pot in tho entire, coun try. , .. ; " " f In spile of thesir cuudltlon-i '.he Mock market fiills to show any roal improvement, the expbinatlon fur which must be round In the general slackness of business. The mtijorlt) of observers arc apt to attribute the latter condition to surface caused Among thwe art delay In the Sup reme Court decisions, tariff agitation and the frequently hostile attitude of legislation toward largo corporations. Those may be" Important contributing ciiusuH. nml hnve no doubt exerted' a considerable restraining iulluence up uu business activity. They have un questionably caused tho postponement of new enterprises, which cannot be Initiated until biicIi questions are de llnltcly settled. Hut. there are causes underlying which have vastly moie Influence upon the tendencies of trade than all of these combined. Nobody supposes that the Supremo Court de cisions. If adverse, will lessen tho eon sumption of oil or tobacco; nor Is It probable that loss woolen goods, cot ton goods and steel will be required ir inrtrt ktliiiiicritd urn nuido which nro- ilucenJ dislike. If theso factors Have nnv" liilluenro upon consumption o such articles, tliuy will In the end utiniiiliit,. ruther than diminish tho demand, for the reason that sucn changes aro being sought chiefly In tin direction of what will be con sidered' public welfare. Tho mnln difficulty with business Is that It Is passing through a period of liquidation and readjustment simi lar to that through which the securi ties markets passed u year or two ago. Our commodity markets have been upon too high a level. The pu blic buying power hail become ex hausted. 'Feverish activity and Inlla tlou .hud carried the rise In prices to a standstill. Credit w unduly strain ed. Liquidation was Inevitable, and there Is no cure In sight except a return to normal conditions through a general decline n commodlU values This curative process is now under vvny. It has made considerable pro gress In some directions, notably in food produots. Ilroadstufrs have de clined about 'J 5 per cent, while pork produots have In many epses de clined 40 per cent. Steel products have shown a considerable diqirecla lion, while copper (ind cotton Have also shown u downward tendency i,,. iiiirh records of last year. A now factor has arisen In tho sit uation; thut Is tho consumer. Ihe campaign ngilnt general oxtravag. auco Is having Us effect. Keonii ni Ih now the ordor of tho day. and tho ...- ...mi Is either anondllig less un food and clothing or else ""iklntr his money go uirumi ,-u "" - cheaper' materials.. This Is unques Ion ably having u distinct though silent effect upon many linos of business. - Another, cause for reaction Is the cessation In now1 enterprises, brought about by the overdolntf which culmin ated In 100U null 10 10. Doubtless this has been aouentuated by uncer tainty attending the court decisions and turtle legislation, as well as bv adverse railroad developments; but had then' factors not intruded It la unquestionable tliitt there would still have been u vory considerable do greo if hesitation owing to Inevitable reactionary tendencies. In tho Bteel trade thh outlook Is hot (is bright as a month ago. ntillrouda are eeon- oml.lllg, something (licy urn well able to tlo because of . their present o. eollont physical condition The re fusal of the Interstate Commerce Commission to grant the railroad per mis-don to wise their rates In being met In practical fashion, economics arc being Introduced wherever possW hie. itnil the lallrouuV before carry ing proji'eteil Improvements miy fur ther are calculating upon buying cheaper Iron and steal. The copper situation Ih another illustration of nu Importnnt Industry which g suffering from purely artlllclnl .conditions. Pro duction hiiH been ttndtil stimulated by a persistent lunlnteiuifiee of high prlcee, the result boliitf a tremend ous ovorsupply, l'robably no cure for the sltutlon can be found oxcept by lowering priced and thus atlmulat Ing consumption a policy Which produce!'! at present are unvvlHi'ly Op posing. In the West a very eomjorvutlvo buslnosH spirit prevails tho wnvo of xJeprosslon vvhleli began on tho Hen board Is now working its way alowly but surely towards the I'aclllc Coast, where In-due time It will completely disappear. K far us tho buslnoM out look as a Whole Is concerned there li nothing to cause anxiety. It Is doubt ful If readjustment H yet completed, and wo may look forward to a period of more or less ipilot. uuslncss Is really Inking the rest cure, a treat ment never quite acceptable to the active American spirit. AVe hoc no reason for withdraw ing the hopeful views recently pre sented In these ndvlees. Wall Street has discounted all current reverse It may not bu Immediately prepare 1 for a frosh forward movement, al though the situation is fertalnly fav orable for a new start when condi tions! are ripe. Kasy money and good crop prospects are certain i re long to promote renewed activity with In the products of the Stock Hx chnngi!. Another very favorable ele ment Is the return of our fori Ign trade to normal conditions and the creation of a large surplus of in portM, thus building up and restoring bur credit abroad and strengthening our command upon foreign gold The situation abroad Is favorable, nnr foreign Inventors: who are less nrfcet eil by current events than ourselves and Inclined to long-distance views pre taking a more favorablo attitude toward our Investments. At the moment we advise caution In specu lative operations, for lh" market might ylold somewhat to unfavorable developments, although In the long run we are still yon!luut that ir ris ing market ,v UliautJhjtlntlullnltuly postponed.--''''"' ' W'W".--'' , a . .
