Tim OMAHA NEW YORK STOCKS AND BONDS i Peculiar Movements of Values sling to Traders. is Pux VOLUME OF TRANSACTIONS SMALL Brisk Rally at Oyealaa; Is Fallowed by- Sharp Reartlea, aad Thera- after Market Is Irreg- wlar. NEW YORK. May 22. The contraction In the dealings In stocks today seemed to Indicate aome subsidence of speculative Interest, the total sales for the day fail ing to the smallest for any day this week. The prlre movement was as pus illng to any effort to discern the real cu- rlctlor.s of those operating In the market a for several days past. The constant barking and filling kept alive a sus picion that concealment waa being sought for the genuine transactions under a cloud of manipulative orders and the shifting operations of the traders Induced by those orders. The opening prices, coupled to the brisk rally at yesterd iy" closing, resulted In bringing prices 1,, some cases' up to near the high levels touched earlier In the week. Traders who thought that this heralded renewal of the advance to new high levels and who bought stocks on the assumption were then disconcerted by a sharp reaction. The movement thereafter waa almost wholly confused. The reaction came at the time an an nouncement waa made that a suit had been filed by the government against the New Haven system alleging violation of the anti-trust law. The mitigation of the rigor of the administration policy of the pursuit of the railroad corporations has been a good deal dwelt on in specu lative discussion as one of the grounds for the recent advance In the stork mar ket. This news appealed to soma of those who had bought stocks on such as sumptions. Otherwise there waa little reflection of new events In the day'a -,..1,-1 . n , 1.11 h.1 i.l w. tin. ciflc M'all Jumped spasmodically on tho news that the ship subsidy provision naa rone to conference In the poetofflce ap propriation Dill ana reiapsea even iikmo violently when the vole rejecting tho conference report wa reported. National Lead reflected a report that the price of that metal had been advanced. The aneclal heaviness of Amalaamated Cop per wa partly In response to a decline in that metal In London. The decision of the steel magnates to maintain the prices of finished products seemed to meet with the favor of stock operators. United mates tsteei rising anarpiy at ine outset. That stock moved as narrowly and slugalahly throughout aa It bas for long time past. Not much tntereat wva shown In the forecasts of tha bank state ment owing to the unvaried ease of the money market. The week'u absorption by the subtreasury and the gold exports amounted to 38.786.000 and only rough cash seems to have been received, oil bal ance on the interior movement to reduce this decline to about 86.000.000. No gold engagements for export were announced ror tomorrow, but intimations were given that more would ro out next week. Dis count rates declined both In London afld Paris today. Foreign exchange lire waa unchanged. Time money markets showed some activity, especially for elx months loans, which were made at 8V per cent, Bonds were heavy. Total sale-, par value, 84,546.000.

Of the fresh receipts some were direct to packer and some were through stuff not offered for sale, o that the total number on aale waa hardly large enough to really make a market. The market on beef steers closed "rot ten" yesterday, the trade being In the worse demoralised condition experienced at this point In a long time. It hardly seemed possible that the market today could be any worse and aatusmen aa a rule were not quoting Jt much different from th") low point yesterday. However, the de mand was light and the market dull and of a very Indifferent character. The dual Ity of the cattle was nothing extra and some big, heavy cattle on the coarse order were extremely hartf-to move, no one im Ing to want them. It la safe to quote the market today a 4050c lower than a week ago on the common to medium grade. On the other nand, the better kinds or cattle, such as were bringing around 86.40ti26.80, are not over 2025o lower, with prima cat tle 10626c lower. There were not enough cowa and heifers here to Interest buyers to any extent, so that the trade was lacking in interest, with prices hardly quotably different from yea terday. The market on cows and heifers as compared with a week ago -shows the same change, as noted In the case of beef steers. Thus while the medium grades are around 4(60o lower, choice corn-fed cow and neuer are not over uxnaxj lower. There were no Blockers or feeder of any consequence In the yards this morning, The receipts ot that kind of cattle have been very light all the week and In conse quence the better grades have not shown much change. During the early part of the week common. Inferior atnoker were hard to move, but aa speculators have cleaned up their surplus, the reeling h been a little better, although the demand la very limited Quotation on cattle: Good to choice corn-fed steers. $6. 25.-56 90: fair to good corn-fed steers, 35. 611 6 25; common to fair corn-fed steers, 84.7Mi6.66; good to choice cows and heifers, 84.65fj7e.oo; lair to good cowa and helfera, S3.764r4.65; common to fair cow and heifers, 32.6uxg8.75; good to choice Blockers and feeders. 34.6006.20; fair to good Blockers and feeders, S4.00iS4.60; common to fair stocker and feeders, 3 OJ fjt.oo.
