ACTION PUZZLES PROFESSIONALS kert Sales Fall ta Force Reartiea and Market Taras Strong; 'Steel loaast Is Malastay af Advance. NEW YORK, May 21 -Dealings In stocks todsy shrank to a small propouion- of the recent dally averaae. The action of tlm msrket proved pussllng to the professional element. Subsidence of demand on an ad vance in prirea la construed usually as unfavorable to the stability of the rise. The professional operators, acting on this principle, sold stocks short when the mar ket turned dull and tried to force a re action. Prtcea did not respond, but ahowed a resistance without any Increase in the animation. The rl-ld holding of prices s.t extreme of an advance Is unusual ami resulted In a confused state of speculative sentiment. The supposition was prompted that most of the dealings were In the hands of operators acting In concert, leaving the movement artificial to some extent and capable of the close control which was evi dent. The nerslstent rt. in t-ninj si.i.. o,.,.i wss the mainstay of the advance. The sentimental effect of the further advance in inei stock to above 00 was sufficient to tlam nil. tha hni. ii. t,,j. n.ru Intimidated from pursuing their attack on values. Late In the afternoon the deal- ngs ssnk to a stale nf stagnation 1"hpr Was little to Show anv rterlrllnir rhl n,a In conditions hearing on values. Reports of me Drraxing of the drouth In Texas were received with satisfaction, as grave feats have been entertained of the hurm 1 n re sult There was help for the speculation Jl copper stocks In the advance in the dividend rate by the Calumet and Hecla saining company, as It was construed as an. Indication of Improving conditions In the trsde. Official changes In the Kansas City southern directorate were be'leved to cor roborate the expectation of closer relations between that road and the Cnion Pacific. Much of the recent speculation has been based on the assumption that a number of Proposed rs,!lroat rnmhlnnllnn. ai.A In .. dormant state and to be completed later. On the other hand, the movement of some of the low grade stocks of rnlirnaria In receivers' hands indicated riouhta nf the progress of the reorganisation plans. Snme attention was attracted also to nnort. from London that intenrie.l flnta.tl ong tr some American securities, which have been unaerwritten abroad, are being de- ayed. OWina to linfavnrahl. rnnHIHnn. in that market and a reeling amongst In vestors not considered friendly to Ameri can securities. New York boi rowings In Ijonuon by bankers are reported to be on a large scale, but these Involve no direct participation by the lenders In the securi ties which figure as collateral. There was an advancing tendency In the Interest rate In London and Paris today, and this is be "'ved to be due to New York borrowing, which nta been an Influence In easing the local money market and thus bringing the two markets to an adjustment. The week's wheat and flour exports rose some 74.000 burrels over those of the week before, but the supply of commercial bills in me exenange market Is still scanty and Insufficient to meet tha demanit Tha r.i.. still hover near the gold export point and it Is believed but for the botrowlng bv New York bankers In London the shipments of gold would be much larger. Addltlonai small amounts of gold were engaged to day for export to Argentina. The week a shipments of gold will run to between W.000,000 and $7,000,000, but estimates of the currency movement indicate that the ex cese of receipts over shipments on the in- irrior movement nas been surriclent, to gether With the 31.661 000 from iiih.lru.m. operations, to overbalance the gold exports jiciu a, sman cusn gain tor the banks.

The Inquiry from both local dressed beef men and shipping buyers was somewhat better this morning and while prices showed no particular advance, the tone to the trade was firmer and the move ment more brisk than on yesterday. AH classes of buyers showed a decided prefer ence for the fat light and handy Weight steers snd they sold most readily, while heavy cattle, unless Choice and well fin ished, were parsed up by buyers until later. The general trade, however, was reaaonably active and by the middle of the forenoon practically everything had changed hands. AS compared with a week ago prices are not over lOojtlfc lower, the decline being most on the heavier cattle. Only a few loads of cows and heifers were Included among the receipts today and with a good demand from both pack ers and outside butchers the movement was active and prices steady to atrong aa com pared with veaterday. The Inquiry has been most marked for the light gradea and they are selling Juet about aa well aa they were a week ago. On the other hand there has been all of 10n5c decline on the medium and common cows, although these sre still selling at high figures aa com pared with beef steers. Veal calves, bulls, stags, etc.. mere generally quoted as steady snd a little stronger than they were toward the close of last week. Business was very dull In Blockers and feeders, as there were compsratlvely few on sale and the demand was confined to local traders principally. Good stuff of all weights has developed more or less strength this week and values are 10 15c higher than a week ago, although the vol ume of business has been somewhat light and the strength due more to the meager offerings than to the Increase In demand.

The general situation remains tha same as It has been the entire week, that la. with packers holding lower values, hut owing to short runs, coupled with a mod erate outside Inquiry,' have been unable to force a drop in prices any material length of time. Prices this morning show no very ma terial difference from thoae paid Thursday for the general run of fair to good hogs. Opening bids and ealea for finished kinds were somewhat better, with extreme sales being quoted as much aa tc higher. How ever, the bulk of the better kinds were re ported as eelling only steady to strong. After the urgent orders were out of the wav the trade eased off and finished dull and weak at the prices noted. Eastern re ports were slso lower, so that there was roth ine In the general situation to par ticularly recommend It to sellers as a de c'ded undercurrent of weakness was evident throughout the market.

The few cars of lambs and ewes on sale moved at quotably steady figures. The trade waa naturally active and everything In sight was put over the scales with little or no quibbling. Two rara of Mexican wooled lambs, the kind that eold yesterday at 38.75, brought tha sama price today. Clipped ewes moved st 36.78 and spring lambs at 37.78. Light receipts each dsy this week has made it extremely difficult to call tha ex tent of the fluctuations In prices. Bcsrclty of wooled on a day when supplies were largely clipped, or vice versa, has left the extent of the decline or sdvance of that day a matter of guesswork. While the market has suffered no decline of any Importance during the last few days, the feeling this week In sheert olrclee has been distinctly bearish. Limited receipts, of course, hsve worked to the sellers' advantage and thla feature Is largely responsible for the stability of the market at a high level. The heavy run of grassfed sheep st Kan sas City and comparatively liberal receipts at Chlcage have helped much In bringing about the easier feeling evident at all the markets this week. This total decline st this point under last week's close, how ever, will not exceed 16dJC6c.
