NEW YORK. Msrch In. -The Improved
tone of the stock market today did not
meen that there wss any substantial
widening in the dimensions of the market.
Such activity as there was came In oc
casional spurts and It wss largely confined
10 a tew stocks. A favorable view was
tsken of the course of events st Washing
ton as giving promise of removal of
obstscles In the way of progress with the
The financial element regards expedition
In the work of' fixing the new tariff
schedules aa desirable shove everything
else. The buying of stocks on this account
was partly from the uncovered bear
element, which has looked for a had eiffecr
from the first publication of the terms of
the tariff bill, but which was timid about
waiting on the actual publication to act.
United States Steel was quite, conspicuous
In the light nf buying stocks, that lsue
having been a favorite medium for specu
lation based on suppositions of the effect
of the new tariff bill. The report from
Pittsburg of the resumption of dividends on
Ciuclble steel prefe.rr.vl after an Interval
of suspensions dating bsck over a year
had anme sentimental effect on the steel
Industrials. Reports of additional com
panies In the trade cutting wages were not
a detriment to the stock. Amalgamated
Copper shared quite fully In the strength
of 1'nited States Sleel snd wss not hurt
apparently by another reduction in copper
prlcea here and In tendon. Price reduc
tions both In copper and steel must bring
the level ultimately to a point where con
sumers will abandon their abstention and
begin to buy. lately there is growing up
a disposition to look upon successive price
cuts as steps towsrd this end.
The February foreign trsde statement
wss a remarkable one. both by reason of
the heavy shrinkage In value of exports
snd nf the Increase In Imports, reaching
Ml.721.0O0 in the former esse and 433.83,000
In the latter, compared with the vear be
fore. Over 930.OW.000 of the decline in
agricultural exports was due to the
check of the high prices prevslllng to the
foreign demand. Of the growth of imports
there can be no doubts of its significance
as showing the revival of purchasing
power in the country. The effect on the
merchandise balance In bringing the ex
cess value of exports down to 17.400.397,
compared with over 13.000.000 for February
of last yer. clearly explains the outward
current of the gold movement. This Is
expected by International bankers to reach
large proportion. The stiffening of the
money rate Is not lost sight of In this con
nection and In an Influence in the
much firmer tone which lias developed In
the bond market. Reports that a further
Issue of Atchison bonds was Imminent had
aims weakening effect on exlatlng affairs
In that regard. Reports , of more mining
of anthracite In preparation for a possible
strike seemed to appeal favorably to
buyers of Reading. Union Pacific held its
usual leadership In the movement of rail
road stocks. The market at the close was
the strongest and most active of the day.
Bonds were irregular. Total sales, pur
value, 92.530.000. United States bonds were
unchanged on call.

CATTLBJ Receipts of cattle this morning
were verv large, 2o9 cars being reported In
as against 270 cars on Tuesday of last week
and 193 cars two weeks ago. It waa, in
fact, t he largest run for a Tuesdsy so
far this year. Among the cattle were a
good many very decent killers, but there
mas also a considerable portion of trash.
The market aa a whole was In very un
satisfactory condition. Buyers, owing to
the large receipts andto the fact that east
ern markets have notlbeen any too encour
aging during the last lfew days, were very
much Inclined to tsket the' besr side aud It
wss well s long In the forenoon before they
went out In-the yards or made any effort
whatever to buy anything. This means that
it was midday before much business had
When buyers of beef cattle finally got
down to business It was on tne baals of
a decline of lotftloc. Rven at that the market
waa extremely slow and dull and at midday
there were still a good many cattle unsold.
In fact la was some time later than that
before anything like a Clearance waa ef
fected. Cows and heifers did not show as much
decline as steers, being quoted about 10c
lower, but they, too, were very slow until
Stockers and feeders were dull sll the
session, the best kinds being close to
steady and others 10c lower.

HOGS Hogs sold 10c higher this morning
snd the market was active at the advance.
First bids possibly were not over 5f,nc
higher, but as soon as the trade was
warmed up a little it was fully 10c higher,
aa noted above. More than that, buyers
sesmed to wsnt the hogs and they picked
them up about as fast as they could look
at them. From this It will be noted that
the market waa just the reverse or yester
day, when the trade waa slow and generally
10c lower. A good many of the hogs today
sold Inside the range of tg.4.Vif.60. The
heat heavy hogs sold on up aa high as
66 75. the latter price teing the top, as
against tr! no yesterday.
As noted esterdsy good light hogs are In
demand, but shippers should bear In mind
that quality cuts a very big figure, for
while the best light hogs are selling to very
good advantage common light hogs sre sell
ing at the bottom of the market. Todsy s
sdvaiue makes up for all of the deriine'of
yesterday and a little more, leaving the.
market somewhat stronger than It wss at
the close or tsst wees
