NEW TORK. Ma-ch 1. Lxiens.ve cover
ing of short contracts wjs the accepted
cause for much of the strength In the
stock msrket today. This wss notsbly the
esse In Reading. In which there has tome
to be a continuing simulation based on
assumptions of the forthcoming decision of
the supreme cou't in the coal rads case.
As Monday is decision dsv with that court
the besrs bought heavily of Readjng be
fore the court convened, lo reduce iheir
very extensive short lines In the stock.
The result was a five point rise In Reading, i
bringing it lo wnhin two points of the
level. from which last Tuesdays
lo-pomt downward plunge was made. The
buying of this stock was not accompanied
by any alleged information that the su
preme caurt would decide In favor of the
rsilroads. The speculative covering of
shorts In Reading ceased when the court
had convened and It became known that
no decision in the case would be handed
While the rise In Reading constituted
an Important sympathetic Influence on the
whole lisi, the fhm tone wss extended be
yond the reaction In Reading There was
no Important selling of, stocks at any lime
to serve as an obstacle to raising the
prices, making the buying that much more
effective. An effective factor In sustaining
Hie market was the strength of the copper
group. This was due to the insistent te
por;a In circulation of some large sales of
refined copper for export which had been
effected and assertions thst specifications
now in hand promised early sales of yet
larger amounts for forward delivery. These
saiee. It was also alleged, were being cloaed
at prices above those of recent sales. Cop
per quotations at the metal exenange and
In London were advanced. That the report
regarding the copper tmde developments
wete anonymous, and the rartiea to the
alleged transactions unnamed, threw some
suspicion about the stones, but they proved
efficacious in prompting large buying of
the. stocks concerned in that trade. The
effect w-.is beneficial on all the metal
stocks. United States Steel included. Noth
ing waa learned of any definite develop
ments in the steel trade to change the
conditions of price cutting and still lag
gard demand from consumers in that trade.
The rise in United States Steel was en
couraged by the news from Washington
that the senate would take no action on
the Instigation of the circumstances con
nected with the merger of the Tennessee
Coal and Iron company with the United
Statea Steel corporation.
The announcement that the advances in
transcontinental freight rates, which went
Into effect on January 1. were to be re
scinded in part seemed to be viewed with
contentment, although; the prospect of
these advances was a long, effective factor
In lifting prices of atocks. The esrly re
turns of railroad net earnings for January,
of which but a few have been received,
gave satisfactory comparisons. The Har-
rlman Pacifies were sustained by the belief
that their January earnings would be re
ported tomorrow. Foreign Influence was
propltous to the market, the quieting po
litical outlook Joining with the easing
money markets to bring thla about Tn
oue own money market the call loan d
vision was aensibly affected by last week's
heavy cash withdrawals, ny tne mommy
settlement requirements ana preaumaoiy
bv the subscriptions to the Argentine loan.
The $9,730,000 allotment to the United Statea
waa ofered and over-subscribed before
noon. It la now apparent that the placing
of this lon here has affected the large
outgo of gold from New York to Buenos
Ayrea. The strong tone of tha market waa
Impaired before the end or tne aay ny real
izing sales and by subsidence of demand.

CATTLE There was a moderat run of
cattle here today, 14o cara being reported
In. Among the offerings were a few pretty
decent killers, but there was also a con
siderable showing of trash. The market as
a whole did not show so very much
With only a few desirable beef cattle in
sight ami with the buying demand fair,
the market as a whole was In a good
healthy condition. As a rule, both buyers
and sellers were quoting prices about the
same aa those which prevailed on Friday
of last week. The most of the cattle sold
in fair season and the market was without
any especially new or Interesting features.
Cows and heifers were also generally
about steady with Friday, but there were
quite a good many Inferior kinds included
among the receipts, stuff that had been
shipped In on account of muddy yards and
thai was not in very marketable condition.
Such stuff did not aeil any too well, but
still it went about as well as it would have
done last Friday.
There waa nothing new or very interest
ing in the stocker and feeder trade. Tha
receipta were quite moderat, but tha coun
try demand was not very good and specu
lators were none too eager for cattle, so
that last week's low prices were not im
proved upon any today.

HOGS Receipt of hogs this morn'ng
were very liberal for a Mondav, ninetv
cars being reported in. as against fortv
elght cara one wwk ago and llurty-fir
! tars two weeks ago. Advices from other
selling points were unfavorable, large re
ceipts and lowur prices being tbe general
luie. Hogs at thla print sold very un
evenly, sales ranging anywhere from
alearty on some of the boat shipping hogs
10 loc lowi-r or. the general run of packers.
The trade was fairly active and prc-tty
much everything in sight chsnged hands
before 11 o'cl.K-k In the morning. The qual
ity of the he gs, according to buters' re
porta, wss net as good aa on most days
last wrek. there being a scarcity, of good
heavy lugs Taken aa a whole It waa not
a bad market aid owing to the quality of
the receipts, there waa really not as much
decline as the sales might show on paper.

SHEKI' Receipts of slitcp tl inornii
were the larccst of the year to d.iie. li.
fact, t lie largest of any rit.y since tlie mid
dle of last November. Among the arrivals
were perhaps a disen tars ot wethers unci
jesrlinga, nnd aside from that the reieip'.s
consisted almost entirely of lambs and
ewes. The quality of the tecelpt on an
average was very fair; that is, there whs
a good showing of fnlr to good killers, hut
at the same time there was a considerable
i-linnkliiig of stuff not overly desirable by
reason of a lack of flesh c r too many bui re.
The market opened with buyers picking
up the most desirable of the offerings ul
prices around Italic lower, with even some
of the first sales as much as 20c lowei.
As the more urgent ortleis were filled buv
ers were able to be a little more partii u
lar. with the result that later the sales did
not show up as well, msking the generul
market Vm&c lower than last week's close.
In addition to the demand for packing
house purposes, there wa also consider
able Inquiry on the part of buyers for
shipping account. As a tnr.tter of. course
thty wanted such stuff as would do t.
shear and feed out. The demand Irom
thtB source helped very materially In ef
fecting a clearance and tended to keep tin
market In a good healthy condition.
