With simple funeral services In the par

the rcmtlni of Andrew ftosewnter. city en

laid to rest yesterday afternoon.
Before the service bcg.rn at S o'clock
those close friends who so desired viewed
the body In the rich black casket covered
with flowers, as It rested near the center
of the hall on the second floor of the Pax

water had had apartments.
Something of the real regard in which
Mr. Rosewater was held by prominent cit
izens of the community, by his brother en
gineers and the small army of worker un

"It Is characteristic of our civilization
that wc do not pass lightly over the death
of such a man as Andrew Rosewater."
said irr. Ixivelsnd, after reading a few
verses of scripture. "And It Is character
istic of Americans that at such a time they
forget all the small things of life. We show
by this how much nearer we aTe to the
Ideal brotherhood of man than some other
nations. We are even prone to forget such
things as religious differences; we brush
from our memories anything of political
platforms and disagreements, and today we
come not as Jew nor Ocntlle. not as Cath
olic nor Protestant, but we come as men.
as human brothers, to put a flower on the
casket of Andrew Rosewater.
"Most of us have to dlo before we are
understood. We have to atep out of sight
before we are appreciated, the same as we
must get far away to see the mountains,
the same that to view the ocean we must
be back almost to where It Is beard no

never know how msny lives have been

MONEY MARKET HOLDS FIRM
Government Treasury Contains Mora
f.old and o Apprehension la
Frit of Mrlnarrncy Deal-
NEW YORK, April 18. There was a lack
of uniformity about the development In
the stock market last week that Indicated
some confusion and Irregularity of specula
tlve sentiment for which It was difficult
to trace the motives always In the news
events coming to hand.
Special stocks were In eager demand and
lifted sharply, while selling predominated
at other points. The extent tp which the
previous rise had gone and the lengthened
period of the advance offered a leading
motive for the selling, which was prompted
by the deslro to realize accrued profits.
Selling on this account had behind It no
doubt of the favorable progress of coming
events, but simply a conviction that prices
had enhanced sufficiently to measure ade
quately the progress ahead;, in sight.
There was an admixture of anxiety over
some of the developments In affairs, which
might -account also for some of the ele
ment of depression in the market. For
eigners manifested distrust at the rato
which prices were advancing in this mar
ket and sold stocks here quite freely when
business was resumed abroad on Tuesday,
after the long Easter recess. This selling
proved a weight on the markrt and had
considerable, sentimental effect as well.
Speculation ' Wheat.
It Is evident that consideration of the
grain crop outlook Is gaining in Importance
from the standpoint of the financial out
look, and that the present promise lacks
cheering effect. Due consideration is given
to the highly speculative clement In tho
high price level ruling In the wheat mar
ket, to the effect of small foreign stocks
of wheat and to Impaired yields of foreign
crops. After allowance Is made for all
these factors in the situation there re
mains a nihslantl.il residue of anxiety
over the backward development of pur own
winter wheat crop. Until that condition Is
corrected there will be lacking confidence
In the improvement In the condition of the
crop over the government's April 1 esti
mate, which Is relied on to Insure against
a trrtalcued shortage.
Weather conditions have been considered
unfavorable also, for the seeding of spring
wheat, a large crop of which would relieve
the shortage of the winter wheat. A ma
terial shortage of the year's grain harvest
would be a grave defect In the situation
hoped for to push forward the restoration
of prosperous conditions in the country.
Ko Shortage of Cars.
Another inharmonious note was the re
port of a fresh Increase In the number of
Idle freight cars In the country for the half
month ending March 31, following succes
sive, though small, reductions which had
been going on since the first of the pres
ent year. As the net result was In spile
of a substantial reduction In surplus coal
cars, due to the rush to stock up with coil
In fear of a possible strike, unfavorable de.
duutlons were drawn of the progress of
freight traffic and general merchandise
From the metal Industries a better Im
pression came. A factor in creating this
feeling was the report of the Copper Pro
ducers' association for March allowing t
growth in that month of only 9.000.000
pounds in the stocks of marketable coppers
In refiners' hands in spite of a production
for that month In excess of that cither for
February or January. This result was duo
to the rise In the month's deliveries and
exports to in8.OS3.0H7 pounds, compared with
only 74.646,814 pounds In February and a
little over 90.ono.000 pounds in Jmuary.
This was regarded as proof of substantial
betterment In the demand for refined cop
per. Orderu for structural steel were on a
large scute, giving promise of an outstrip
ping of the March record In that depart

will be a strong revenue producer.
Senator Daniel and other democrats will
