NEW YORK , May 14. ( Spcclar. ) Henry Clews , head of the banking house of Henry Clcvva & Co. , writes : After a prolonged struggle the Block mar ket has at last yielded to the pressure of downward Influences. Thr "bull" side has had a hard task For four months It has been striving to support the highest tango of prices ever reached In the history of the marktt. There have been extraordinary Itwill bo causes nroduclntr that rise nnd IL ,1111 uw CUUSl W JJ1 lllt , pretty generally allowed that those causes warranted the nd- have In a large measure vnnco. But the last week's experience was not needed to demonstrate that something more than the Intrinsic merlin of the prop erties Is needed to maintain value. An un balanced condition of the machinery ot spcc- ufallon Is enough lo break a market In nplte of whate-vcr may be claimed In favor of the Investments. Hvcr since the opening of the jcnr the market has boon In n stnto ot high nervous tension. In January the market was taken by surprise with nn unprecedented iiibh of Investment buvlng which put up prices of railroad shares to a level yield- ins 3 % to 4 per cent. This started a specu lative movement based on extravagant expectations carried to excesses pectations , nnd buying was cesses through reinvesting the largo profits ) lclilu < l by high prices. This nluajB dan gerous method of financing speculation has bi-tn the weak point In the market for the lust two or three months and the position became especially critical so soon as the largo operators rcall/ed their profits. \Vo might easily have witnessed n smart reaction In February bad It not been that n new element of excitement then scbod the market Within two or three months be tween $2,000,000,000 nnd $1,000,000,000 of new Bocurltles were Issued , representing great consolidations of Industrial corporations. That event was nn exciting surprise. Occur ring simultaneously with an outburst of un usual business activity It was at first con- Btruod as another evidence of an era of great national development , nnd from that Impreg- slon the speculative spirit In the market re ceived a now lenso of life , the more so ns the promoters of the now Industrial combina tions found it to their Interest to foster the speculative spirit and keep up the general boom Such nn extraordinary excitement , however , could not bo long maintained at full pitch Differences ot opinion developed as to the conservatism of the new movement. The banks maintained an attitude of reserve toward It , nnd within the fast two weeks there has been nn abatement of the an nouncements of new consolidations. With n turn In the lido of the now Industrials un abatement of speculation ill the regular list ilUillUlIIUJIl \vns Inevitable The "bears" seized the op- poilunlly for a doletmUicd atlack and hence Iho very considerable break of Tuesday. Wednesday's market exhibited a spirited effort to rally the ranks of the "bulls. " For tunately London happened lo be In a buoy- nnl mood nnd on Tuesday and Wednesday took fully 100,000 shares of various securities. Certain houses which have become Intor- cslod In Iho new combines also conlrlbutcd their Influence toward bracing Ihe market , and Wednesday's Iransncllons showed a con siderable recovery from Tuesday's decline. The force of Ihe downward reacllon may therefore bo said to have been broken , but ) nt the same time the market has lost con- , sldorabro of its Inlrlnslc strength. There has been n good deal of compulsory selling and not n few outside holders have been driven out of Iho arena by Ihe professional bears. Probably nol a lltlle of Ihelr slock has gone Inlo Ihe hands of buyers whose object Is the merely tempoiary one of belying Ihelr own urgent sldo Issues. It Is hardly safe , there fore , lo take-It for gtantcd Ihat the break of Tuesday will be followed by a new upward boom In the market. Among the things to bo ascertained before that can be assumed Is the , extent-to which the Issues of the now consolidations arc passing Into Inveslors' hands nnd Inlo speculollvo operallons , and thereby displacing the older securltlps. It seems safe lo assume lhal a quite Imporlant amount of the preferred stocks of the new Industrials are now hanging over Iho market for rcallzallon , and If Ihe holdcis are willing to meet the market It Is not Impossible that the new Influx may have an Important bear ing upon the value ot other stocks. In vlovv ot the entering- these new Interests Into Wall streel It will ho prudent lo maintain a watchful attitude. Provided the now corpo rations should prove as successful as their friends hope , there can be no doubt that se curities represonllng our imluslrlal Inleresls will In Unto probably occupy a poalllon on Iho Slock exchange second only lo that held by the railroad companies. The determina tion of Ibis problem , however , must wait upon experiment At a latet singe the real significance of Tuesdav's break and Wednesday's rally can bo better Judged. How far both movements wcro real or manipulative remains to bo seen , meantime , it will be wise to follow closely the drift of the market , buying on drops and taking tnodeinte prollts on rises , nnd not losing sight of the factor that there IB n considerable amount ot now securities awaiting an opportunity for safe , nnd of a kind which ma ) prove nn uncerlain asset to speculallvo holders , whatever they may bu ns n permanent Investment. At the mo ment there are no now elements in sight cal culated to matrlally affect the future course of the market The remarkable activity In the general ttade of the country remains un changed nnd may bo expected lo conllnue indefinitely without any nbalemcnt , bul the question \\bcthur this Intluenco has nol boon already discounted and whether Us effect will go bejond giving n mere. steadyIng - Ing tonu to the market wlthoul producing any further cnnsldcrahlo rise In prices. The Influence of Iho ciop prospccl Is at present n neulral element , probably , how- eiver , Iho worst probabllllles have been dls- ionnted nnd any marked Improvement on Iho output forcshndoued In the forccnsls of Iho Department of Agriculture would bo likely to Imptovc the position of the ralltoad list So far as respects winter wheat , the condi tions on May 1 am consulted by the sta tistician of the Produce exchange ns mean ing a etop ot 318,000,000 bushels , which is 110,000,000 btlKhclH less limn Iho Indicated crop al iho same date ot lasl ) ear That decrease , however , Is much moro lltan off- t-et by the Increase In vlstnlo suppl ) and In funnels' stocks , aa compared with a > enr ngo 0\\lng to the lateness of the KCnson , it Is btlll Impossible to form any estimate of the ciop of spring wheal. Upon the whole , taking the but partially developed sit uation as It stands today , there Is nnlhlng to prevent the possibility that the volume of vvheal , now nnd oW , to be InniEported dur ing the coming ciop season tmi ) prove equal to that tit last > car , bad weather condi tions , however , may reverse that prospect As n general view , It , teems reasonable to conclude thai iho course ot the securll ) mar ket will depend for the next few w voice or months , less upon such factorn as the crops and general ttado than upon conditions in trinsic to tlie sttck market Itself and cre ated by the Introduction of an importanl mass of securities laificl ) new and experi mental In Ihelr inituie and which the banks are disposed to tteal shly us collateral. i.oMio.N STOCKS ci.osn ruiM.

NBW YOHK , May 14 The New York Financier said this week As was expected , the bank statement for the current week shows some heavy changes over previous trtnls. bul , In Ihe asgrogalo , they were not . It had been as heavy as had been expected. anticipated that excess reserve would rlso almost , If not quite , $15,000,000 , for In ad dition lo the heavy liquidation duo lo stock exchange business , Iho banks had gained something like $1,500.000 from the Interior and treasury operations. The gain In cash , however , ns rcporlcd yesterday was only about $8,250,000 and the Increase In deposits lets than $2,000,000. There was a shrinkage In roans ot $ Sl5ii.- 700. The effect of the changes noted was to Increase the surplus reserve $7,78 , " , 075. Thus the stalement seems far out of balance , even from an average standpoint. The reserve carried by all the banks for the week ending May 13 cqualn 23 per cent of their deposits , as against 27 1 for the pre vious week. If the National City bank totals Including the heavy gains are scparaled It becomes apparent that Ihe other banks In the clearing house arc carrying a reserve of less lhan 21 per cent. Indicating n more re- slrlclcd loaning power. As n matter of fact , the real condition of the banks docs not warrant this conclusion. The outlook la rather tovvnrd easier money. Mnticlipntt'r Toxtllc Ilcvlrrr. MANCHESTER , May 14. Since the sctlle- mcnt of the strike question the tone of the market has become confident and almost buoyant , The latter part of loot week saw a large business , led by light goods for Cal cutta engagements. India llkowlsc bought freely of Hhlrllngs. Large orders were lurned down because Iho limits were frac- llonally lee low. China sent a moderate number of orders at workable prices and South American continued a fair buyer The minor markets were acllve wllh the demand largely distributed Yarns wore higher and now most of the spinners are deeply engaged.

The astounding counterfeit conspiracy In volving well known men of Philadelphia anil Lancaster , which has been the reigning sensation ot the last ten days , was the most elaborate crime of Its kind ever known and the work of the United States secret servIce - Ice agents In delving Into the mazes of the gang's operations and weaving together thu Intricate threads ot evidence upon which thu .conspirators wore arrested has been the greatest iileco of detective work on record. The magnitude ot the operations ot the counterfeiters , the skill with which they were executed , the supreme audacity and the entire scheme and the character ot the men liuohed In It have lelit extraordlnarj Inter est to the case. Manv of thcso details have become public property , owing to the start ling dally developments , but of the patient , tireless , pertinacious and adroit work of the detectives who unearthed the crlmo llttlo has been known. The glory of this crowning triumph on the part of the secret sorvicu operatives will bo oven greater than It Is when the labor of the agents , with all Its romantic and thrilling accompaniments , is understood. llxpi'rt Coiintet-rcltprH. The usual run of counterfeiting gangs , re lates the New York Herald , has heretofore been made up of disreputable nnd inconsequential quential rogues , who bungled their Illicit game nnd Invited exposure by their crmlo efforts. IJut the men now in prison were ot dlffeient breed 1'osscsslng the highest order of Intelligence , dating and mechanical skill , they vvcro a source of extreme anxiety and even of doubt In the United States Treasury department for moro than a year , and even after many months of the most persistent shadowing ever exercised by detectives , the government authorities feared that they would not be able to fasten upon the shrewd conspirators conclusive evidence ot their ama/lng crime. It can nowbe said without fear of contra diction that In no other country on earth is there cmplojed in the Interests ot govern ment a body ot men possessing a higher or der of shrewdness and honesty than the scoot service bureau of the United States. Gaboriau never imagined more sagacity , acu men , tireless endeavor and melodramatic In cident on the part ot his favorite detectives than have been exhibited b ) Chief John R. Wllklo , Captain William J. Hums and their men In their long hunt upon the trail of the Jacobs and Kendlg band. It was a detective feat that will long be remembered as the most masterly effort In the history of the secret service. The faithfulness of the chief of the local district , William J. McManus , in the face of hugo bribes and promises of a share In the counterfeiters' spoils Is no less noteworthy than the keen perceptlveness and instinctive judgment displayed by Chief Wll- klo and the cool , nulet , exhaustive tracing of clews by Captain Uurns. CiuiKlit .MlNt 111 'I'liiie. It is now openly said by the government oniclals that It the crime had not been detected vihcn it wan the men would have produced counterfeits of $100 , $30 and $20 bills that would have defied detection oven by government experts , and the wealth gained by the gang would have been prac tically unlimited. It docs not require a student of finance to understand what dis aster this would have meant for the gov ernment. It Is the biggest counterfeiting case In the history of the secret service because , In the first place , It caused the secretary of the United States treasury to call In the entire Issued ot $100 Monroe head sil ver certificates , amounting to $26,000,000 ; and , second , because the men who were backing the bchomo had an abundance of money with which to push It and the high- eat order of brain matter -with which to execute it.

Wllkle , a young newspaperman whoso early training as a man of Chicago , detective had been as a reporter In the po- llco courts , When Mr. Wllklo began he found otho- work. Ho lutoly no clew upon which to obtained many copies of the counterfeit , but ho could not trace thorn to anjbody who could possibly bo a counterfeiter. Tinally , ho made the heroic decision to place under surveillance evuiy engraver in the. country who was capable of doing high class work It was Inferred that the work had been done In the spring of 1S97 , as It had been ascci talncd that the spurious notes had up- peartd as early an Juno of that year. The how the engraving first move was to discover ing plants of the country hod been employed during those months From the start Chief Wllklo believed the work to bowhat Is known as the photo-engraving process , and the counterfeiters to be new and superior men. As his right hand assistant In the cafio he brought Into requisition Captain William J.

This was the first Information which the se cret service could regard as o tangible clew. The bureau was employing .scores of men from all parts ot the country and paying out money without stint. The rirnt Scout. Chief Wllklo , who was In New York , re ceived n telegram from Captain Burns on March 12 , 1SOS , announcing that he had "lo cated our parties " Mr. Wllkle hastened to Philadelphia. He was soon convinced that Arthur Tajlor and Baldwin S. Bredell were the guilty persons. Tajlor was a past grand master of photo-etching on steel nnd had In vented n process of his own , while Bredell was a mechanical genius who had made sev eral notable Invcntlona and was an expert transferor. A systematic scheme of shadowing was then instituted. Everything that was deliv ered to Taylor & Brcdell was noted. In this way It was learned that the fitting up of av paper mill was In contemplation. The two partners made frequent trips to Lancaster and by following them the secret service men established a connection in the counter feiting echemo with William CM. Jacobs and William lj Kendlg , two extensive cigar manufacturers of that city. Not a package went Into either the Phila delphia or the Lancaster offices of these men without Its contents being known to the secret service men and not n movement was made by the suspected persons that was not noted. Detectives from one part of the country would shadow them for two or thico elaja and then drop them , their places being taken by agcntn from another section All the best men in the government secret serv ice were thus brought Into the case at one time or another. One incident , In Itself trifling , Is told as 11- lustratlvo of the numerous clavnr llttlo strategies which entered Into this prolonged detective hunt. The agents wanted to ob tain entrance to the engraver's shop Ono day when the on and boy came out Into the street , a secret service operative carrjing a bundle , told him that ho could earn a quai- ter by delivering It to a nearby hotel. The offer was gladly accepted , "Now , my boy , " said the man , when the errand had been performed , "this bundle Is really Intended for a theatrical compinj You are a bright young fellow and there will bo a fine chance for > ou to join It. You would look well In this costume " Then the detective painted a glowing pic ture of the charms tlmt theatrical llfo would have for an aspiring jouth The Thespian ador of the boy was Inflamed Ho thought well of the proposition Accordingly ho was Invited to try on the toggery In the bundle He-consented at once Then while his clothes were olT the Hankshaw slipped hla hand Into the pockets Ho found thu key ho wanted , qulcklj inndu a wax linpros- slon of It , sent the boy away without sus picion and was thus rend ) to obtain access to the place where the secret plates of the counterfeiters were Kept without having ex cited the slightest fear on tholi part , watch ful an they were wereA A I.ontr lluiil. Week after week and month after month the secret service men brought Into requi sition from Boston to California , watched the movements of the Philadelphia and I in- caster plotters. It was not until hint Jan uary that the remarkable connection with the cose ot cx-Unlled States District At torney RlleTj P. Inghnm and ox-United States District Attorney Harvey K. New lit of Philadelphia was brought to light. The reputation of these lawera made this con nection a surprising one , even to the secret service men , accustomed to suiprlsos. Ix- tra detectives wcro put on the raso It was soon found that Jacobs and Kendlg weie using only a small proportion of United States Internal revenue stamps for their cigars , although tboy were sending their goods to every part of the country , some times manufacturing as many aa 10,000,000 In a month Then it was discovered that the two men had apparently succeeded In brib ing a revenue collector at Lancaster , Sam uel B Downey , and that they weru fully posted by him as to the movements against them by the becret service men , who had taken Downey Into their confidence. A change of plans were accordingly made and a llttlo over a week ago the arrests were made which , with thu developments that fol- lo-wcd , startled the tountrj Besides , Jacobs , Kendlg , Taylor and Bre dell , there were taken Into custody In ham and Nowltt and Hovunuo Collector Downey. Upon learning of the long and conclusive ) work of the dotoctlvos the counterfeiters thren up their hands And made full confus- slons , Implicating each other In the crime At the trial they will plead guilty and throw themselves upon the mercy of the court.
