NEW TORK. Feb. I The stock market
had an active hour after the opening to
day, during which prices were held aoove
the level of yesterday's recovery. Ap
parently distribution waa going on at that
level and the market lapsed Into sVtreme
dullness and hesitating fluctuations there
after. The effect waa to revive douhts
over the speculative outlupk. Moat of the
material of the day's speculation was
In the form of rumors and mott of these
emanated from Washington. There wen
large buying orders at the same time ex
ecuted by houses with Important Wash
The effect waa to produce an Impression
that Important developments were to be
forthcoming there bearing on financial
and stock market conditions. There werj
plenty of rumors to supply details with
great definiteness, but authoritative in
formation waa lacking. Confidence la felt
In the financial district that moderate
measurea of currency reform have "been
undertaken at Washington under auspices
that give good promise of success. It Is
blleved that provision Is to be made for
the routine deposit of surplus revenue
fif the government, Including currency
received In national banks and the limit
of the monthly retirement of national
bank circulation expanded to $12,000,00
or $15,000,000 Inatead of $3,000,000 aa at
firesent. The removal of this limitation
s expected to lead to freer not Issues
by the banks where they are restrained
now from the difficulty of retiring the
nptes when they come back from the cir
culation. The Impression has got abroad
In the financial district that assurance
has been received In some way of a like
11 hood that the Interstate Commerce com.
mission would not be opposed to an ad
vance In freight rates If thla process
were eauallsed. There was a still more
specific runyir about the Stock exchange
on an Intended alteration in the govern
ment Drocess aaalnst the Standard Oil
company which la regarded aa a sort of
typical and test case of the attitude to
be taken towards the great corporations
The uncertainty In the stock market
movement waa probably the outgrowth if
the rather unsubstantial material on.
which It is thus seen It waa based. The
market felt the effect also of the reduc
tion of the short Interest by reason of the
covering of shorts In yesterday's market.
A hardening of the call money rate late
In the day alv weighed aomewhat on
the market. This waa supposed to be du
principally to the making of provision
for paving the subscriptions to last
week's New York City bond Issue of $30.
000,000. The preliminary estimates of
the week's currency movement also Indi
cated a weakened banking position. The
movement on balance to this center from
the Interior apparently continues, but cn
so small a scale aa to offset only slightly
the losses of the banks In subtreasury
operations, which amounted to $4,291,000.
Reports were current also of further note
Issues by ra Unpad a, either placed or In
contemplation. The rate of Interest
which these notes are made to bear at
the price thev bring indicates that the
market is still inaeceptable to capital Is
sues of a more permanent form at prices
which corporations could afford to accept.
The drooping tendency, of the market
more than wiped out the early galna and
held to the closing, which waa easy.

the revenue collections and ths payments

dends declared by various home railroads,
creating a more hopeful feeling. Other
British securities showed, little variation.
Americana started well over parity and
runner unproved. Missouri rvcinc snd
Canadian lacina were tAe most active dur

' CATTLE There was no material ehangs
In the cattle situation today, conditions gen
erally remaining about the same aa detailed
yesterday. Packer's refrigerators are full
sf beef, while it Is Impossible to get cars
fast encugh to ship it out. At ths saini
time most packers have a good many live
cattle on hand, which they bought earlier
In the week, snd which they have been
holding until there was refrigerator room,
so that that they could be killed out. Vnder
such conditions it can be readily under
stood that they were not at all anxious
for fresh supplies this morning. As a re
sult none of the buyers went out Into the
yard until very late In the forenoon, and
it was still later before anything like a
clearance was made ot the sixty-nine cars
reported In. It was In fact a dragging
market from stsrt to finish at yesterday's
demorallied prices It la safe to quote the
market, as noted yesterday, 2F(i60c lower
than the first of the week with the demand
very slack even at the decline. Until the
supply of . meat on hand is materially re
duced, or" In other words until cars for
shipping meat can be had In larger num
bers packers are not likely to need very
many cattle, except at prices low enough
to leave them a good shipping margin. The
only policy for the country to follow at
present la to hold back their cattle until
the car shortage is relieved.
Stockers and feeders have not suffered as
much decline as have killers, but the mar
ket cannot be expected to be very brisk,
or very strong with fat cattle selling to
such poor advantage.

HOGS Buyers started out this morning
offering prices that, were generally a little
stronger than yesterday, but sellers see mod
to feel that conditions were In their favor
and by holding on they forced buyers to
raise their hands until ths market was a
good tc higher and then they cut loose.
While the trade was a little backward
about opening, whes once under way It
waa for a time at leaat very active, and the
big bulk of the early arrivals soon changed
hands. As will be noted from the salea
below the hogs sold very largely at tti.hbar

SHEET Receipts for
fairly liberal. In addition to-there being a
train of hold-overs that came In yester
day afternoon after the market had clos.d.
Of the fresh receipts, however, eleven crn
were Kf a time, Montana ismne. on ineir
way to an Illinois feeding station and not
offered for sale.
The market on erieerv while not particu
larly active, was generally steady with
yesterday. Tne ract la wethers, rearllnas
and ewes have sold shout steady ail the
week, there being comparatively little
change n that kind. There were yearlings
here good enough to bring $830, with good
ewea as high as $o.20.
Packers seemed to be pretty well filled
tip on lamba and they were both slow and
ower. From the way buyers talked. It
waa not so much s matter of pries with
them as of wanting the stuff. The
tendency on lamba has been lower all ths
week, in sympathy with the steady down
ward movement at Chicago, where the
market yesterday was quoted lolflic lower
from the beginning of the week, thereby
making a new low level for the year. At
the present time aeventy-flve to eighty
pound Inmba. If fat. ere the most desir
able In the eyes of buyers and sell to better
advantage than the heavier weights.
An idea of the lamb situation aa viewed
In the east may be rained from the follow
ing paragraph taken from the Chicago
Drovers Journal of yesterday, which reads,
aa follows: "While most well-informed
traders do not take a very optimistic view
of the nearby future market, they do not
nv anv means view ths trade s in niarm
This Is a time when the country should
feed the market with tlarht receipts ana
thereby avoid any very large cute Into
the price rangs. An sdverse eastern mar
ket for lamba In the carcass snd a shortage
or refrigerator cara la a combination that
is depressing trade now. but a v removal
of these conditions should occur In the not
far future, and ths outlet for lambs
broadened, according to most traders In

TROUBLE FROM A TRIFLE
The Kid and the Missile Whlck
tatted the Japanese Raetloa
la Saa Fraaclsco.
Whrn Master Sidney Marks of San Fran
cisco shied aa old tomato can A few weeks
ago he was unconscious of ths fact that
hs was making history. He knows It now
and is proud In consequence. He waa
slmpjy, as he thought, engaging In ths
gentle pastime celled "soak ths aklppls."
Sklppis means any -old kind of a Japa
nese. The "sklppis" In this case was a
noted seismologist. Prof. Omura, wearing
a silk hat (now no longer wearable) and
studying the ruins of the earthquake. 81J- ,
ney's tomato can not only demolished ths
silk hat, but precipitated an International
Issue. It wss the whisper that starts tho
avalanche, ths feather that breaks tho
camel's back. And wo reproduce for tho
use of future historians Sidney's own plo-
turesqus account of the affair: .
It waa this wsy: There was a bunch,
of us out behind ths postoffice, when one
of the gang yells, 'Pipe the sklppis under
the dicer. Let's soak 'Im.' Ws let loose
for fair, ml to the lucky boy. I bounced
a can off his skyplece,. He wss sure sore.
But ws sent him down ths alley aftsr ths '
naughty boy who did him wrong."
Probably bis assault upon Prof. Omura, -
as much as ths dismissal of a Yasamartt
from ths Pacific Heights Grammar school,
had to do with the Indignant protests ot
ths . Japaness that have led to talks of
war, and have resulted In the moat aenaa
tional passags In ths president's message.
