NEW YORK. March 31 The stock mar
ket today manifested- a degree of vigor that
proved of notable Influence In forming spec
ulative sentiment and In confirming the
feeling of confidence that has hoen grow
ing up In the shape of affairs toward bet
terment. The general oatlook Is held ac
countable for the starting up of values and
the reviving of speculative interest. With
stocks offering stesdv resistance to news
of discouraging comlltiona In business day
after day the conviction has been forming
that operations In the stock marlcet, so
far as they might be prompted by such de
velopments, had been concluded In the pei
lod of depression thst has been passed.
There Is sdmittedly a' large dmand. both
speculative and Investment, which has been
watting for an amirance that the effects
on securities of unfavorable factors have
been meaaured. As to tha ultimate emeng
enre of affairs from tha adverse conditions
which have weighed upon them and the
resulting great enhancement of values
which is to follow, no doubt has ever been
'-It. The action of the stock market in
face of some of the later developments
counted discouraging suggests thst these
developments In themselves may mark the
culmination of depression and the turning
point of Improvement. Such a development
was the open cut In steel products by the
I'ntted States Steel corporation making tha
abandonment of the doubtful polloy of ig
noring the lack of demand by holding prlres
at artificial levels. While tha new dnmand
H 'Y 1 1 a I .l k, lh. An im Mrnrfr
yet advli.es In the last few days are thai
such demand Is growing and Is expected to
expand materially with the demonstration
that bottom prices hsve been touched, The
small profits which must result fm busi
ness booked at prevailing prices, the dan
ger of labor disputes from cutting off
wages, the prospect of prolonged apathy in
trade while the tariff bill la being worked
out and all similar unfavorable possibili
ties are pointed out and have prompted per
sistent efforts by the bear element in the
speculation to force down prices. In the
week that the cut In ateel products was
announced United Statea Steel sold at 41.
after having sold the week before at above
m. loaay s price touched 4t. The recov

Ths market on beef steers started out in
very good shape. Packers all seemed to
want a few and the early market was
safely steady to strong. Later on, as It
became apparent that tha demand was
not so urgent as It might have been, It
eased off, closing somewhat weaker than
Cows and heifers sold very wen mis
morning, being steady to strong and now
nd then It was possible to una a sales
man who thought he got as mucn aa ioc
highar than yesterday. The market was
reasonably active and most of ths cow
stuff sold In fsir season.
For the middle of ths week the demand
for stackers and feeders was quite good
and anything having sufficient quality to
find favor in buyers' eyes commanded
steady to strong prices.

HOGS Buyers started out this morning
bidding prices that were Just about steady
with yesterday, but salesmen were ss a
rule pricing their holdings higher and by
holding on they eventually forced packers
to raise their bids. When the trade was
once under way prices generally wera 6c
higher than yesterday. While the market
waa at no time active pretty much every
thing changed hatida In fair season In the
morning A considerable proportion of the
lings sold at $8.6041.773 and on up as high as
KflO for the best heavy
' It will be well for shippers to remember
that common light hogs and everything on
the trashy order is not selling to very
aood advantage and that buyers are mak
tug a wide spresd between loada of that de
scription and those of ths sums weight
but possessing better quality. Thus, today
while the better hogs aold higher, as noted
above, the more common loads did not
participate to any great extent In ths Im
SHEEP-Recelpta of sheep looked quite
large again this morning on paper, forty
nine cars being reported in. This makes
the lotal for the three days thla week
29000 head, as against 78.000 for the lame
days laat week and 22.000 for a year ago.
Numbers, however, In this case were a lit
tie deceiving; 31 cars out of the total re
ceipts were Colorado laniha, consigned
through to an eastern feeding station and
not offered for sale. Thua It will be seen
that the actual offerings on the markt-i
were really small for this point. The de
mand was very good,' buyers being out In
the yards early in. the morning and it did
not take them very long to pick up every.
tiling in the way of really desirable killers.
As to prices the market was anywhere
from steady to 10c higher on- the - best
grades. Thus good lambs reached $8, ths
same aa ass paid on Monday, while yester
day s top was only x,.90. mgnt good Mex
ican ewes sold up to $.10. ths highest price
of the year to date, and the highest at
sny time since April of last yesr. when
$1.70 was the high price. Thera wars no
earimgs or old wethers on sale, at least
none of any consequence, to really make
a test of the market on that kind.
