NKW TORK. Mt.cH. t-It aas a day of
mall things In tne stork market and the
meager business came almost entirely frora
tha class of professional operators, who
mavke a living by the daily fluctuations
In prices. Tha trade's who had bought
storks yesterday on a rising scale up to
the cioe of tha day were somewhat dis
concerted over a number of developmenta
which confronted them when they etatted
business today. They unloaded their light
holdings at a consequence with some pre
cipitancy. While this selling waa light, the
demand was even lighter and the result
waa rather violent break In prtcea.
Tha professionalism of the market was
demonstrated by the suddene with which
extreme dullneea followed tne completion
of thta sailing of the trader. Finding no
Influential following for the hasty soiling
they toi over their frignt and repnr
chased the stocks sold eariler, this work
ing tha price recovery of the latter part of
th day. which, however, did not hold.
The selling from foreign sources ares
prompted by tha sudden turn for the worse
In the news of the relations between Aus
tria and Servla Tie foreign markets
plainly showed the disturbance of senti
ment caused by this news and the re
flection of thl feeling was one of t'e
factors In tha opening weakness hre. The
clearing of the euCook In the Balkan dur
ing the day waa reported too late to effect
a recovery In the foreign ma-keis. but
there eras buying of stocks hete late In
the day on the asaumptlnn that orders will
coma from abroad tomorrow to buy back
the stocks sold for that account today.
Th defeat In congresa of the ship sub
sidy measure caused a slump In Pacific
mail, a that atock had been lifted k
greuively on the strength of assertions
that the bill had a good prospect of pass
ing. Disappointment waa felt at the re
fusal of tha New Tork public aervlce com
mission to modify the terms of the.r pe'
mission for the issuance of Erie bonds.
Danger waa, feared of tha failure of the
financial pian Intended to rehabilitate the
Erte. The Incident widened m lta erfect
as a symptom of the growing restrictions
to which corporations are subjected. The
feeling of disquiet on tills scora was In
tensified by the terms of the Interstate
Commerce commission ruling on the so-
called Spokane rats cat. The detailed at
tention given In that ruling to questions
af cost of railroads, capitalisation and
manner of laeue In forming a Judjrment
of the reasonableness of freight chargea
and the specific opinion that earnings of
the Great Northern and Northern Pacific
In recent years have been excessive threw
open a wide field for conjecture of the
effects of future appllcantlone of this
method. Reading was subjected to some
special pressure because of statements In
circulation that it waa the intention of
the anthracite companies to-shut down all
the mines on April 1. pending the makiag
of a new agreement over wages witn the
miners. The opportunity, which would thus
be given to market surplus stocks of coal
and reduce interest chargea involved In
carrying the stocks, did not appeal, ap
parently, to holders of the coal storks. A
sudden drop In the p'lce of copper war
rants In London received more attention
than did the renewed cJalma of further
large sale of refined copper In New Tork.
A good effect waa produced In the latter
part of th day by the announcement of
the placing of the year's orders for steel
rails bv the New Tork Central system.
The recovery proved unstable, however,
and prices slipped back and made a weak
The low price reallied at yeaterdav's sale
of New Tork Clfv corporate stock com
pared with the ale In November had a
slight chilling effect on the bond market.
The tone waa Irregular and there was less
activity than of late. Total sale. pa

lhat same condition continued today. Buy
ere were out in the yard very eaily lit the
rnrrning eager for a chance to bid on
everything in sight, with the reettlt that
the market on bef steers cpened very early
ln the morning and waa very active right
at the oiflsej, at price that were safely
:til5c higher and in manv case even
better than that. In other words, the ad
vance today and yssterday made up for all
the loss of Monday and the latter part of
litat week, leaving price quite a little
higher than at the best time last week
Pretty good steera solj up ss h gh as

market since the middle of January.
Cows and heifers advanced in U-.e same
proportion as beef steer . ber,g fully q

rapidly, an early clearsnce being etfected.
The tdvtn in beef steers has encour
aged buyers of stnekers and feeders to sucn
sn extent that they were all looking for
supplies this morning and the few here
sold very quickly as much aa 10c higher.

The reason for such an unusual advance

naturally by a stiff advance In th market
for live hega at all points. In addition to
that waa th further fact that local re
