Bears Work for Reaelloa, hat Ara

aloa Ends with Baoyaat
NEW YORK. April 17.-The stock market
today gave further evidence of some unset-
llement of speculative aentiment. The
sharp reaction of the day before and argu
ment of the unfavorable bearing of the
wheat market aituatlon stocks hHd the ef
fect of bringing In selling orders. Part of
these were executed In the London market
bt fore the opening here and the price In
New York opening at the London parity or
below, represented considerable declines
from the level at which the market left
off. The professional traders on the floor
worked Tor a reaction. The manner In
which the market absorbed the atock ot
tered and the apperance of support for
prices had an Intimidating effect on the
bear and Inspired some covering of shorts.
The bear took to flight in tbe late deal
ings and caused the buoyant rally which
ended the day.
Foreign markets were still disturbed to
some extent by the troubles in Turkey.
The recent large gold outgo to Bouth Amer
ica, together with the considerable syndl
cate operation In connection wtlh bond
flotations, has led the lender of money on
time to attempt an advance In rate of
interest, but borrower hold off and the
result is great decline In the money mar
ket. Reading waa exempt from Its recent
week-end depression In anticipation of a
poasime decision on Monaav in tne com
mndltles clause cases. Central Railroad of
New Jersey rose buoyantly with helpful
effect on Reading and the coalers . gener
ally. The pronounced trength In the coal
ers was the Influence which prompted the
vigorous rally and the. strong closing at
general net galna. The bank statement
showed a heavy loan expansion, both by
the clearing houae Institutions and the
trust companies, supposedly due to the
week syndicate transactions.
Bonds were Irregular. Total sale, par
value, 32.620.000. United State 2a, coupons,
and the 3s have advanced per cent on

and hla aaslstan Yre pleased with
the outcome of tr'fe 'unniinl contest of the
Western Intercolliaitp .unastlc associa
tion, held 1n the' utan'tistty armory last
night. The victory of Cornhusker Mitchell
In the Individual conteat give the local
student great satisfaction, for It wa won
against the beat athlete from three of the
leading school of the west Minnesota,
Chicago and Wisconsin. Nebraska did not
expect to win the team contest, for Or.
Clapp had only thrte athletes who could
perform well enough to be entered in the
contest. Two of these Morehouse and
Trump are new at the work and had no
chance against the more experienced men
from the other schools. Mitchell, the third
Cornhusker, however, has for three years
been regarded as a star, and It was In him
that all hope for bringing honor to the
scarlet and cream was centered. His spec
tacular work, despite a sore hand and
wrenched ankle, won for him applause from
all hi cnmpttltora and from the large aud
ience. He was easily the star of the con
test. Mitchell won the medal by securing first
place In two event; second place In two.
and fourth place In another. Berndt of
Chlcsgo, who was Mitchell's closest com
petitor, took first place In one event, sec
ond place In one. third In two and ninth In
tumbling. Berndt'a poor work In the tumb
ling allowed Mitchell to get the lead that
gave the little Cornhuaker tbe contest Un
til that event.' which was the fifth, was
held, the two rvmnasts ewre tied for first
honors. Mitchell In the tumbling outclassed
his opponent, winning first place In th'
event with 76.4 points, while Berndt msde
but 60.8 points. These two gymnaat scored
as follows In the five events: Horlsontal

Mitchell second. 78.6. Bide horse: Berndt
third, 76.6; Mitchell fourth, 76.9. Flyong

75.1. Tumbling: Mitchell first, 76.4; Berndt
Chicago's winning of the team contest so
eaally. wtlh a margin of 174.8 points over
Its nearest competitor, came as a surprise;
for both Wisconsin and Minneaota had been
held as fsvorlte over the Maroons. Minne
sota, who had been regarded as a sure
Winner, hsd to take second place.
The Chicago team was better balanced
than the Gophers. A trio cf the Windy
Citv men Berndt. Kennedy and Bartlett
were all stars and were the ohlef factors
In winning the mret tor tneir scnoot. in
no hnriaontal bar the three men won
second, third and fourth places; In the
parallel bar they won nrst, tnira ana into
p'aces. Leviton and Smith alao did some
apltndtd work for the Maroone. In the

conteatanta outrlaafd and won first plac
with a good margin of point to spa. re.
Leviton scored fourth in this event.
For Minnesota Ussel was a star and he

rbov sixty points in each event, his total
betrg 826.8. Baker of Minneaota dd good
work In ths sidehorse. having a score of
Wisconsin, winner of third place In the
team contest, waa greatly handlcanped by
the absence of Ulllus, a spectacular per
former on the bars and sidehorse. As It
were the Bedgers were only 26.8 points be
hind the Gophers. Sr.lvely. Osthoff and
Faber did the best work for Wisconsin.
Osthoff won first place in th flying ring
and econd plaoo In the tumbling.

association and did surprisingly good work
corsldering that It had only one athlete
In the Individual and team contests. Nolte

PATTEN REPLIES TO WII,JOv,
Ball Leader Rldlcale Figures of '
Secretary of Agtrlealtar.
CHICAGO, April 18. After a memorable
speculative week the tickers' "good night"
was received st noon today with s deep
sigh of relief from Beard of Trndc men,
not to mention an army of laymen drawn
Into the vortex of the wheat pit hy tit
publicity given Jsmes A. Patten, the bull
leader, and his following.
"Good night" meant a day and a 'inlf
for quiet reflection on tbe great problem of
the season. Will the public est tills year's .
or last year's wheat three mi nlhs hence?
Today Mr. Patten personally left Hi
market to Its fate, which lute, from ll4
view of the Palten crowd. Improved con
siderably, aa prices advanced over a cent
In May and July options. Mr. Patten paid
his respects to Secretsry of Agriculture
Wilson, declaring that the latter's estimate
of available supplies Is a joke and lectured
reporters who he alleges have been more
entertaining than accurate In their atcrlaa.
Tariff on Wheat
As to talk of removing I! tariff on
wheat as a slap at manlpulttto Mr. Pat
ten was for it.
"I'm In favor cf removing It right now,
because we will have to do It at the end
of ten years at any rate. It would not
affect the price of wheat a penny for the
natkets of the world are on a parity right
now. Take off the duty on corn, oata and
live stock, too, for It will ml be long be
fore we will bsve to import them. I li.ive
aid this before and Jim Hill hit been
preaching It to th farmer along his rail
road for the taat three or four years.
"As to Mr. Wilson, lie Is absolutely In
correct. There waa not 143,000,000 bushel
on farm on March 1. It wa nearer 100.
000,000 bushels. My information la 'Better
than hla and I know what I'm talking
about But don't take It from me; go to
any big trader who pay out hi money
for accurate Information on which to risk
his capital. They Bay I have a corner in
wheat. I have not. The wheat I . have
could not feed the world for one day."
Paaalagr of May Deal.
The week' place In speculative .history .
la du to the practical passage of the so
called "May" deal and the active engage
ment of bulls and bears all along the lino
concerning ths proper price of July con
trscts for wheat.
From this time on the pries of May may
fluctuate erratically, but It la slated lliut
there will be little trsding In It. The. beaig
admit that Patten won in that strugjle and
that he ts arbiter of the price. - However,
few settlements of tilts delivery. It Is said,
remain to be made. The price 'dj l ic Li"
week ranged between 81. and 81.23' and
closed today at ll.3'.
Whether thl price I too high or loo
low cannot of course, be known until thu
time for delivery on contracts, both Secre
tary Wilson and Mr. Patten have remarked
that "time will tell" and "time" In ths
preaent Instance means ths two months
and a half from the present. That th
fight between opposing Interests a 111 be th
most exciting on the Board of Traua no
one doubts. la the aggregate It will bi
wgged between those who believe In thl
accuracy of the government reports am"
those who) pin thsir faita is rua
