NEW YORK. April 15. Anvthln of In
terest In the financial world today was
found outside the stock market. That was
like a stagnant pool, the slight stirrings
on the surface of whirl) were easily negli
gible. Some of the day'a developments were
not unimportant, but they had no reflection
In the stock market. The statement of the
country's foreign trade for March made a
remarkable showing. The point most dis
cussed was the falling off In value of ex
ports as compared with March of last year,
the decline of upwards of $16.000,ono In the
agricultural exports belnsr expanded In the
loiai exports to over 3J0.000.0TO. Failing off
In cotton exnorta accounts fnr mnr than
$18,000,000 of this decrease and the compari
son is witn a month of extraordinary cot
ton exnorta. The March exports, in fact, do
not compare badly with any March previous
to last year for several years back. Signi
ficance attaches nevertheless to the fact
that exports have fallen below those of last
year tor the first time since last October,
when the financial criala forced the basty
marketing aihroad of our commodities? Of
the K.tti0,0O0 gold which came in at that
time there haa been, until the eno-nmment
of t00,000 today for export, no reflux
abroad. The decline In merchandise exports
01 v,iv.(xju tor March compares. In fact,
with a shrinkage In Imports In the same
comparison of nearly $44,000,009. There is
much more Siamiflcant evidence nt tha ef
fects of commercial depression than in the
export items, it nelpa to explain the lack
of cheerfulness in markets abroad as well
hero and also the lanaruld interest In the
International gold movement. Interior
hanks continue to shin enrrenev to New
York on a large scale, bank notes figuring
largely in these shipments. Owing largely

tin March in, the date of the nrovtnus

CATTLE There waa another fair run of
cattle this morning, while other markets
reported equally liberal recelpta. The trado
on beef cattle was very slow and unsatis
factory from start to finish, but other
kinds or cattle sold fairly well aa com
pared with recent dava.
The market on beef steers continues
downward. Buyers started out bidding
prices that were 10&16a lower than v eater-
day. The trade was extremely slow and
dull and It was well along toward midday
it-1 ore. very many came cnangea nanoa.
Handy, light weights were the best sellers.
but they were slow to loo lower. On the
other hand heavy cattlo, even those of
good quality were hard to move. Some
puyera would not even look at heavy
Buyers of cows and heifers also started
out biding lower and tt waa very evident
that they felt that lower prices ought to
prevail In order to bring the cow market
in line witn beer steers. It happened,
however, that receipts were light and aa
there was a fair dumand, buyera did not
succeed In getting very much off. In
fact, salesmen as a rule, figured that they
got steady or pretty close to steady prices
lor tneir cow sturr. some very good heif
ers sold aa high as $5.90.
There was no great number of either
Blockers or feeders on tha market On tha
other hald, the demand was of an Indif
ferent character and the trade was slow.
While prices did not show very much
change, the feeling was nevertheless weak
owing to the unfavorable condition of
rat cattle, quite a string or Montana hay
feds sold up to $6.30.

HOGS Recdipts of hogs wera quits large
this morning and taken In connection with
the holdovers Uiere were not far from 190
cars on sale. Tha market waa generally
luij.l5c lower than yesterday, hogs sailing
largely at $6.40b6.45. with a top at $6.60.
Moat of the hogs sold yesterday at $5.60
6.66, with about half of tha aalea at the
latter price and with a top at $6.65. Tha
early market waa fatlrly active under tha
Influence of a good ahlpplng as well as a
good local demand, but after the mora
urgent orders wera filled the trade slowed
SHEEP Recelpta on paper looked quite
liberal thla morning, twenty-five cars be
ing reported, but out of that number there
were eleven cara 'of through stuff not of
fered for sala at this point. Then there
were aix cara of stuff sold yesterday for
delivery today. In other wards, there wera
enly eight trash cars on sale and the most
of them ware on the common to medium
order, there being very little in tha way of
really desirable killers. Oood light Mexi
can lambs wera weighed up at $7.7. e?eeder
buyers paid' as high as 17 for a string of
very good" but heavy lambs, which will be
shorn and marketed later.
The feeling on fat stuff wss very weak.
As a matter ol fact there wera not enough
good klllais to really make a market, but
had the. re been any great number on sale
prlcea would undoubtedly have been lower,
at least that was the wsy packers were
talking, and the wlioo. trade seemed to
The main cause for the downward move
ment In prices Is the very dull and un
satisfactory condition of tha eastern mut
ton market. Consumers are refusing to
buy high-priced meats, with the result that
prices on high-priced live stock have haa
to come down.
