Trading it Dull to the Point of Stagnation.
alaes Are Taraed Downward To
ward the (lose by Isrresst 1st
Kastaatesaeals of Uold for
tslpmest Abroad.
NEW TORE, May 17 The stock market
gave signal evidence today that the large
operations which have caused the show of
animation for some time past has been dis
continued. The trading was dull to the
point of lethargy and the movement of
prices sluggish to the point of stagnation.
Persons of authority and Influence In
finance continued to be quoted In confi
dent opinions of the prospect tor renewal
of prosperity and there was a marked
unanimity in looking for active revival
with the completion of the tariff legisla
tion. The price level of stocks gives
abundant testimony that speculation has
not waited on the passage of the tariff
legislation to see Ita advantage coming
from the revival. The stress laid on the
crop prospects In the hopeful views ex
pressed by the trade Improvements keep
the Speculative sentiment sensitive to the
crop news. That from the southwest to
osy counteracted the beneficial effect of
the reports of the rains last week. Not
only winter wheat, but cotton comes within
the calculation.
News of Industrial conditions was favor
able. Reports of heavy orders for railroad
eiiulpment and supplies had an effect on
the electrical Industrials, hut not so much
on the steel group. An advance In wire
prices also waa without much Influence on
that group. The engagement of fJ.ono.OnO
gold for export and prospects of future
outgo to South America revealed the con
tinued demand of the New York supply
for foreign markets. Th was
known to be destined for Europe, but the
proportion for Paris and that for Holland
was not stated, lxindon's gold supply In
the open market was taken for Austria.
The gold outgo is clearly called for by the
state of the International exchanges, the
recent small excess in value of our mer
chandise exports over Imports being more
than overbalanced by the persistent llnul
dation of foreign holdings of American
securities. The relative state of the money
markets here and abroad, however, wuulil
prompt the retention of funds here, since
Interest rates obtainable In New York are
somewhat better than those abroad. Bor
rowing abroad has been going on, as a
matter of fact, to a considerable extent
and has restricted the gold export In pro
portion. That foreigners should continue to
aell American securities without the pres
sure of any money exigency to push them
makes an effective impression of the Idea
held abroad of our price level for securities
as excessive. The free selling of this sort
coming from Holland is of special effect on
sentiment owing to the reinvestment Judg
ment of the Dutch. The Increased gold
shipments from 2.0ii0,0oo In the morning to
f3,isi0,000 th the afternoon was the deter
mining factor In turning prices downward
to the closing.

CATTLE The week starts out wlih a
rather moderate run and about the best
quality that has been seen here this year.
Advices from eastern markets were not
ery bullish owing to liberal receipts, and
neither local dreesed beef men nor eastern
shippers seemed to be particularly anxious
to take hold. Bids we.e generally steady
with the close of iast week on the light
and handy weight cattle, but the
tendency was to bid lower on tho heavier
beeves and the general market was alow
from start to finish.- It was well along
toward lUe middle of the forenoon before
much trading had been done and prices
ranged from very nearly steady to aa mucn
as lic lower In some cases.
Supplies of cows and heifers were very
moderate, only about thirty loads, and with
both local packers and outs de butchers
taking hold freely It did not take long to
clean up the offerings at prices that com
pared very favorably with the close of last
week. As usual the light grades were the
best sellers and 'brought the tup figures,
while common ami Inferior grades were
slow sale at bottom price.
Supplies of stock. rs and feeders were not
yery extensive. Buyers, wanted the offer
ings, and everything sold in good season
at prices a shade stronger than last week.
The volume of business, however, was not
vefy large, and It did not take a great
many cattle to meet the requirements of,
the trade.

HOGS Buyers and sellers were wide
apart In their Ideas this morning and as a
result the trade was very slow nt the open
ing. Shippers and order buyers picked up
a few selected loads on the early market
that looked to be about steady with Satur
day, but the amount of trading done on
this basis was of little consequence. Buy
ers for packers started out bidding 6fil'ie
lower. Salesmen were backward In allow
ing any conression and tt was well along
In the morning before they could get to
gether on a trading basis. The bulk of the
earlier sales showed a decline of about a
nickel. In a few instances the break ap
peared to be as great as a dime, but the
extent of the decline on the bulk was not
that great. A big nickel would, perhaps, j
cover the decline on moat of. the sales.
The receipts were fairly liberal, totaling
right around 6,400.
1 he situation did not improve any, as
the morning advanced and the trade con
tinued slow throughout. Tne bulk moved
around f6.9m&7.:H). with the best hogs sell
ing at, a dime below Saturday's top.
SHEEP Sheep and lambs commanded
about ateady prices this morning, although
in spots the feeling seemed to be a shude
easier. Receipts were comparatively light,
consisting mostly of clipped lamhs. The
trade was reasonably activo and everything
was weighed up In good season.
There was nothing extra cnolce among
clippers to test tops, five loads of the best
lambs selling at fe. One double deck of
clipped ewes moved at 16 (m.
There were hardly enough supplies In the
wooed department to make much of a
market. Two loads of lamhs headed to
day s price llBt at 19 00. There were no
wuoled ewes or wethers of any oonsequence
on sale.
One of the noticeable features of the
market lately is the partiality of the pack
ers for clipped supplies. Gent-rally, If
valuea are on the decline, the break has
been less apparent nn shorn stuff. This, of
course, is only logical with live mutton
values at their present levels. The mutton
eater has become more fickle In his habita
and retail demand as a result Is of a
ingniy nniuii'. i ne nerase pm'Htr realizes
this and does not care to tie up any more
money than he ran help In snet-p, espe
cially at current va;uea of wuoled stork.
