brought about selling by small holder
which with numerous stop-loss order added
to the weakness. There was little In the

NEW YORK STOCKS AND BONDS
Sharp Slump in Hew York Central Diiturbs
MARKET GENERALLY DULL AND LOWER
Lowest Pries of Day Are Reached In
Final Hoar, bnt There la at
light Rally Baying
NEW YORK. March M The behavior of
New York Central stock late in today'
session of the Stock exchange had a dis
turbing element and served to enliven what
otherwise promised to be the most uninter
esting day and the smallest day's trading
of the year. New York Central up to the
early afternoon wa as sluggish and dull
any stocks in the market, and its down
rd course was very slow at first. But
from 144 the price broke abruptly on the
next transaction to 142i and after selling
t 143 the nrice declined bv U ooint Inter
vals to 142. with subsequent sale a low
141V4. The source of the selling wa not
ascertainable, but the demonstration of the
poor absorptive power of the market on
any urgent selling made a formidable Im
pression on sentiment. The whole market
was weakened In sympathy and sold off
pretty generally to a level considerably
below last night. Previous (o thl episode
the price movement was little more than a
drifting match. During the early part of
the day vigorous efforts were made to ex
tend the recovery which had set In yester
day, but the best efforts of the trsders
proved Inadequate to restore prices fully to
Saturday's closing level from which Mon
day's decline was started. Such strength
as wa shown was confined to specialties
which have been favorites In the specula
tion or subject to pool manipulation.
ine more cneerful feeling abroad over
the Moroccan outlook was a factor In the
advance. So was the report of additional
gold secured In Berlin for shipment to New
York, which was known during yesterday's
seslon of the Stock exchange. This waa
followed by an abrupt reaction in the rate
for sterling exchanae at Berlin, althnuah
discounts In London were uuotably lower
again today. The firmer tone of forelan
exchange In the local market seemed also
to be the result of the gold engagement.
The heavy tone of Reading from the start
today was attributed to the increasing be
lief In a strike In the anthracite regions. In
dicated by the reaffirmation of the uncom
promising stand by the operators against
any of the concessions asked by the miners.
Texas A Pacific was unfavorably affected
by its annual report, which disclosed the
same disadvantage In the last year's busi
ness which was reflected in the Missouri
Pacific's annual statement. The rally In
the cotton market today indicated some re
vision of opinion on the significance of the
census bureau on the season's cotton gin
ning. The lowest prices of the day were
touched In the final hour, but there were
some substantial recoveries on covering of
shorts by the bears and the market closed
Bonds were steadv. Total sales, tar
value. !1,S5.000. United States bonds were

demand and scarcer In the market today
owing to revenue collections and the ap
proaching quarter-end. Discounts were
quiet. Operators on the Stock exchange
were fairly cheerful and hopeful In view of
the brighter outlook at Algeciras. The deal

SHEEP There were verv few ahecu ill
the barn when It was time for the market
to open this morning, trains S a rule be
ing late. The only regularity ahotil stock
trains at the present time seems to be
their lateness. By reason of the nonar
rlval of the receipts the morning trading
Waa somewhat limited. Still there seemed
to be In some cases a little better feeling
than yesterday. Buyers took hold a little
better on the start and the eurly trading
was somewhat more active than yesterday
and day before. Still, prices were no bet
ter and the demand on the part of the
buyers waa limited. After the more urgent
orders were filled the trade slowed up and
it was harder work for sellers to unload.

CAl'lLE If this matter of laie trains
keeps up it will only be a matter of time
when there will be no morning marten at
all. As It is now it is well aiong toward
midday before all the trains aie in the
yards and the early morning market is
renaereu slow and dull by reason of the
nonarrlval of the stocK reported. Yester
day a large proportion of the cattle did not
reach the yards until midday and the after
noon waa well advanced before everything
waa disposed of. The old plan was lo have
stock trains In the yards at uayiignt and
then everything wouid as a rule be sold and
weighed up lung before mldriny.
This morning 236 cars were reported to
arrive, but when the market opened there
were not enough cattle actually in the
yards to make a market. The early trade
was slow and dull, but the cat tic aept
stringing in a train at a time and selling
at about steady prices. There was in fact
no quotable change as regards beef steers.
Cow and heifers sold about steady with
yesterday. In some cases stronger. The
supply of cows this week hss not been very
large, so that the market has been In a
good healthy condition.
Blockers and feeder were scarce and the
market strong. It would look as If this wa
a very good time for people navtng good

This resolution was the fruit of the Real
Estate exchange session, Wednesday on
the subject of realty listing.
The committee oh revision of bylaw
reported thHt he bylaws contained no
section relatlve' to theMlsting of property,
and hence no amendments could be mad.
A recommendution was made by the com
mittee that a paper be.pussed for tho
! signatures of the members, pledging thum
to take no agency for property unicss
given exclusive sale. Several membeis
were opposed to this 011 the ground thai It
would not be fair for some to pledge them
selves when it wa evident that otherg
would not. Iwl S. Reed. C. F. Harrison,
N. 1 Dodge nnd H. B. Payne, said the
only way to establish a sole agency system
was to educate the public o til fact that
Its Interests could best be subserved by such
a system, and this education could best be
accomplished by the personal work of the
agent with their clients.
In view of this genera! sentiment fx-
4 0 ; pressed, the plan of pledging the member
was dropped ana tne resolution auopieu.
