Oats were lyriNe lower. lrovlsions unchanged to i',7e higher. rcnt .in.tu In the wheat pit was bearish all ciav and prices at the close were almost at the lowest point. The failure of Kuropean markets to respond to any great extent to the 3c advance here yesterday was one of the chief depressing Influences. Through out the entire session there was free sell ing by longs. Several times the market rallied moderately on covering by shorts, but each advance brought out Increased offerings, which soon caused a fresh de clmo. A number of reports were received telling of damage bv Hessian flies In the wheat fields or Kansas, but they were given but scant consid. i at ion. inasmuch as the injury is Kcm-r.illy bcl'cvcd to Is- confined laru-e y to small and scatl-red Hfeas.

NEW YORK STOCKS AND BONDS Week Closes vrith an Animated and Buoyant Market. UNION PACIFIC STILL IN LEAD Metal Industrials Are ol t spienous In the Advance Bonds Firm and Slightly Lower. NEW YORK, May 9 The week closed with an animated and buoyant slock rur ket. In which Inter, st was manifestly broad ening, and new iiolnts being developed in tho upward movement. Advantage was taken to effect distribution of speculative holdings of some of the stocks which have led during the weak In strength and ac tivity. In Reading and Union Pacific th.' volume (if the trading was on an undi minished scsle, but the price variation was held within narrower limits, d.-m ind being fed judiciously. Even in stocks in which realising was most pronounced, th day's business was effected at prices higher than yesterday, and In fact, at the highest prices of the year. No definite news accompanied the furth r advance, but rumor continued busy. Much of It dealt with the anthracite gioup Hnd supposed change of control of the R-nd-Ing, in spite of the reports of the sales of I.ake Shore holdings of that stock. The coming t'nlon Pacific bond 1-tsue was a sub ject of active discussion, but with no au thentic details as to the amount or terms of the Issue. A sudden spurt in Chesa peake A Ohio was unexplained, but was as cribed by some observers to the terms of the working agreement between the rail roads and the government authorities for non-enforcement of the commodities clause of the Hepburn law. pending litigation to test its validity. The metal industrials were not conspiclous in the advance. Tip price of copper was lower in London, and rose again on circulation of a report that the agreement on the main prices of pg Iron had collapsed. Assertions were cur rent of tho forcing to covt r of some large short Interests. The bank statement of averages showed much less than the ex pected gain In cash holdings, but It ap peared In the statement of actual condi tions on Friday night, and in that of oUpt banks. The S23.623.3oo loan expansion of the latter Institutions indicated clcvirlv. also, that the burden of the week's syndicate fi nancing had been borne by them. The de crease for the week of S2.7''." in I'nit-d States deposits shows the nrly r. sp ui-ei to the call for repayment of ti..) u of these deposits, which fell due today. Tue items of deposit arid of specie holdings In today's clearing house statement stand at record figures.

The receipts have cnsisied v.-rv largely of fed st. . rs. w ith a liberal sprink ling of stock catile and a moderate number of cows, heifers and mixed Mock. The market on be. f steers has been In very fair condtlon throughout the w.ek. the trade on most das being reasonably active, with prices firm.

On Monday as high as JG.S5 was paid for choice heavy cattle, which Is the high est Of anv (lav Since Anrll R A f..i,,. i , the week's trade was the- nn. venness of the maraet. 1 his was especially true of the lightwe'ghts. prices showing quit, a wide range for cattle of about the same quality. On some days when light cattle were not very plentiful cattle of the right weights sold very high, even though lacking some-w-hat in fU-sh. Other days when the sup ply was more liberal or the demand not quite so brisk the same kind of cattle wer" more or less neglected. Cows and heifers were In moderate sup ply all the week, the demand lielng in ex cess of the offerings practically every dav In consequence the market gradually strengthened, being quoted strong and ac tive every day and at the close of the week Is safely lnfiJOo higher 'Imr. :a.t week. It will be noted "rnm tl quotations that good to choice cows and heifers are selling verv close up to steer prices. Very few fleshy feeders were received during the week; in fact not enough to rtallv nnk a test of the market. Such cattle can be safely quoted steady fo- thn week. On the other hand, light" stnckrs were in pretty liberal sunplv, espee'ally rturing the first half of the 'week. Ha rlv In tho week there was verv free buying on the part of speculators and nrlees were very satisfactory, but as th anticipated count t-v demand did not develop the market eas"d off. being at the close right around 5c lower than last week.

Not long ago a voting man In the Idle rich class. an intellectually pov.rjr stricken chap with an Income from hii father s estate of more than SWK per year, spoke to me about going to Spain; but h admitted that he hadn't the faintest Ides where It was or how I.o could get thcie. He knew It was "on the other side"' 11c had be. n to Europe several times, but never got beyond the allurements of Taris. Examination of a map didn't appear to as. sist his meager and undeveloped intelli gence. He said he hadn't seen a map sinct he was at Somelxxly's private school. He couldn't find Paris on the map! He ex plained that In the only geography h.i had seen Paris was in the center of a country colored green. This sounds incredible for n man ol "j. raised In luxury, until one understands that he was also brought up In utter Idle ness. He has five automobiles, but he doesn't understand the simplest principle of their construction; he couldn't tell which are electrical and which are gasoline motors! About books he knows nothing; said he hadn't r. nil a novel or a travel book In his life. "For (Tod's sake. Johnnie, what do you do?" 1 ask. 1 In desperation. Nothing. 1nst nothing." was his reply. And he told the absolute truth, lis Is hot e dissipated youngster; doesn t drink liquors because he doesn't like their taste.

PLUG HAT PARADE IN JAPAN Tiles of the Vintage of Flftr Year Ano Make the Mlkados Sub ject Frond. There Is one sight which you must not Miss when you go to Toklo." said t ho seasoned traveler. "That Is the rare dis play of anthropological plug hats. "Some people arrange to get to Japan In cherrv blossom aeason. and others want to get there In time to receive an Invita tion to the emperor's garden party In chrysanthemum time; but take the tip of one who has batted about the world considerably and land In Toklo cither on New Year s day or on the emperor's birth day. On both ou can see something unique In the line of headgear. "When Japan began to get civilized It bought all the accessories of civlliiatlon that England did not want any more England sold Its old-fashioned. out-of-date, narrow gauge railroad stock, an tiquated tram cars und other second-hand Junk, including the then current styles of plug hat. "The tile of those days has remained the ruling fashion In Japan up to the present. Japan may build Dreadnoughts, but tho plug hut of fifty years ago still reigns supreme. i "Only on such ceremonious occasions as the New Year's festivities, tho emperor birthday or possibly the racing meets at N'egislil. near Yokohama, does the Japa n se gentleman bring forth from his cam phor wood chest his plug hat. a heritage from his forefathers., It may be warped with twenty summers, dams or green with the shine of antiquity, butthat matters nothing. "Once this superstructure to his wrinkled frock ( oat and bagged trousers Is added, the Japanese gentleman feels that no dignity short of a decoration of the Order of the Rising Sun can be added to his person. That crowning glory of a plug hat may settle around his ears or it may perch upon his head like half a peanut tihell. but no matter; it la the hat of civilization and the badge of re Bpectablllty. "He trota out of Ills house looking like one of the ancient daitnios stiff with the dignity of two swords:. All that fearfu; day he wears this hat of ancient vintage like a crown, and in the end he stows It away in his damp-proof chest awaiting (neither festal occasion or held as an as set in his estate ufter d ath."
