Brokers Fear End of Southern Pacific
Pool and Stay Oat of Market.
NEW YORK, April . Tod.iy"s business
at the stock exchangf aggregated bar.dy
2OJ.O0O shares, which is tack to the low
level of activity. The fact that Friday is
the date also for the expiration of the
Soutnern Pacific pool confirmed the dls-
fosltlon to keep out of the market. There
s an almost Infinite variety of conjectures,
as to what the effect of this event will be
upon th; markec at large. The possible
event most dreaded Is the throwing over
of the large holdings of the pool following
the expiration of the pool agreement, but
there Is a well denned suspicion that the
expert managers of the pool have not
waited until this time In a fulling market
t" protect themselves against those neces- !
sltles of forced liquidation. The profes
l nal operators In stocks and th com
mission houses cling to the belief that th?
clearing un of this uncertainty moy lead
to an awakening of activity in trading. The
distinct easing of the money market yes
terday seemed to give no reiiet from tne
pressure of liquidation. Today there was
distinct relaxation of this pressure to sell
and effective support at some points when
the selling was continued, but the market
continued to hang In a suspended and
lnarlmated condition. There were some
stocks. It Is true. In which there seemed
to be some further liquidation, but the
market leaders were free from this pres
sure and inclined to advance, without, how
over. Inducing any general rwponce
Yesterday's weakness In the United States
steel stocks was sufficiently explained by
the decrease in net earnings for the past
quarter reported after the closing yester
day. The corporation's new -6 per cent
bond dipped to a low record price on the
curb this morning, at ?3c, but a complete
recovery lollowtd. The buying of the
stocks on the exchange was confidently
attributed to the account or Inside and
syndicate Interests, such as have not been
perceptible In these stocks for a long tlms
past. This support had a good sympa
thetic effict on the general stock. The
heavy selling of Rock Island, which was
a feature yesterday continued today from
the same sources, but there was evidence
of Inside support In this stock also. Amal
gamated Copper was decidedly weak In
connection with the violent relapse of
1 17s 6d per ton In the London price on
copper. There was some attempt to cin
nect the selling of Amalgamated with the
Involved speculative conomon in ine cor
fee market. Prospects In the money market
were considered favorable, but an advanc
to 7 per cent In the call loan rate In the day
somewnjt innea mis connaence. ine
hanks have gained a small nniuuol from
the sub-treasury since Friday and the
movement of currency on the Interior ex
change Is believed to favor New York.
Much Importance was attached also to a
report from Philadelphia thit the Pennsyl
vania has atartfd f40.00o.00ii six month loin
maturing In with the proceeds of
the first Installment of subscription to Its

NEW YORK. April 8.-COTTON Opened
steady at unchanged prices to a decline of
3 points, and following the call displayed
further weakness, particularly on the May
and July options, as a result of lower ca
bles than expected, full port receipts for
the day and continued liquidation. Further
rumors concerning the probability of cotton
coming to New York for delivery on May
contracts may have had something to do
with the early selling of the nearby options.
But trading was quiet during the entire ses
sion and when May had reached 10.20c and
July 9.&2c the market was supported by the
bull pool, which bought more or less openly.
The rally which followed was encouraged
by the stronger tone of the New Orleans
market, which showed a gain of about 3
points over last night's finals. Rut after
the Initial break the market ruled Irregu
lar and seemed to be dominated almost en
tirely by the bull leaders, who however,
apparently had in mind merely the sustain

which sold up to 10.83c, or 13 points over the
lowest of the session. From this point,
however, there was another slight reaction
under realizing and the market was finally
quiet, with May and April net 1 point
hleher while the" other options were un
changed to 6 points lower. Total sales fu

CATTLE Receipts of cattle were fairly
liberal this morning, but as all the packers
were liberal buyers there were none too
many cattle to supply the requirements of
the locsl trade, 'the market was active
from start to finish and everything sold
Beef steer buyers took hold In good shape
this morning and the market ruled very
active, with prices on all desirable grades
6ij'10e higher than yesterday. The heavy
cattle Improved the same as the light
weights and as the cattle began to move
toward the scales at an early hour the pens
were cleared before the middle of the fore
noon. It was the most active market that
has been experienced In some little time.
The quality of the offerings was about the
same as of late. The bulk of the cattle sell
from $4.46 to $4 05 and there are compara
tively few short-feds showing up In the
The cow market was fairly active and
Just about steady with yesterday. The de
mand was liberal, so that practically every
thing on sale was soon disposed of. The
quality today was. If anything, better than
yesterday, so that, although cannera and
common cutters were alow sale, there were
not enough of them to cause the market to
Buns, veal calves and stags also sold
freely at good steady prices.
There were quite a few stockers and feed
ers In the yards, but the demand for the
better grades was sufficient to hold prices

SHEEP Recelnts of sheen and lambs
were more moderate here this morning and
as a result the market on good stuff was
active and steady to strong. The quality of
the hulk of the offerings however, was
rather on the common order, so that the
market on paper does not look very high.
A string of wostern yearlings sold aa high
as $6 65 and some clipped sheep and year
lings brought $6.30. Good stuff Is selling as
high as at any time, but the part-fat kinds
are a good deal lower than they were a
week or ten days ago and are slow sale
at the decline.
Feeders of desirable quality are In fairly
good demand at about steady prices.
