NEW VORIi STOCKS AND BONDS 8udden Death of H. H. Rogers Has Little Effect on the Market. P0WLR OF RESISTANCE IS STRONG AaSlety that aperalator' Poaltloa la Instable and Valnerable ta Proves Wlthoat Fsaada. Hon. NEW YORK. Mav 1) Tha alnrV m.rlcl has rsrely met the death of a capitalist of foremost prominence with o lntl dlsturb sme as was caused bv thp iidrten rtfuth of H. H. tloa-era today. It was concluded. irnm mis, int there wai little ground for the anxiety professed for several days past that the speculative position had become unstable and vulnerable. From . passive re aiatance to depression, the tons passed to positive strength The demonstration of resisting nower rnulit nnt tii h... other oonaequence. since the fear of over speculsUon and, a top-heavy condition of values which might lead to a violent re lapse In esse of socldent had ten the sole unfavorable factor which could be pointed out In the situation. Prices have suffered more serlou set backs often on rumors of Mr. Roger's death .r serious Illness than happened lo aav following - his death. Mr Rogers i rPrp"el to the Wall street sup position, as much as any' one man. L cn,raJ figures of the vaguerv defined "Standard Oil group," which Is the most potent of all the dimly apprehended forces which work concealed from view and supposedly armed with the most complete knowledge of conditions snd control over their regulation. The eudde-n removal of SUCh a forte mav have rilntrmta pnnu. (luences tb a speculative twaltlon. a in in w or tna sudden denth of ex-Oov-ernor Flower In the crisis of an excessive speculation In which he had been the con trolling figure. Even where there is known to be no heavy speculative commitments In the slock market, decided depression is sometimes caused by the death of n man or the vast property Interest and adminis trative activity of Mr. Rogers. The extreme effect today wns measured i decline of 1H In the price of share of Amalgamated Copper, of which company ne was president, and of i In Consolidated Oss and 1 In St. Paul, In which he wns n wiTil i J.h r" 'or this Imperturb blllty oulckly be came to be understood In the general withdrawal of Mr. Rogers from stock exchange operations of late years :L B.'"iHenr witn ni pet project of the Irglnla railway diverts u ,t. .,. tentlon. Furthermore It wb believed that "IT."; ne"h since an attack In 107.- had Induced hla retirement from many former activities and the placing Of hla affairs in order to- guard against The Impression of the ftd1tUn. of th stook market position wss not the less strong on account of these explanations of the resistance shown. Fac tors of encouragement In the outlook which have been In abeyance for eevoral days came Into play again. United States Steel, of which- Mr. Rogers was a director, was conspicuously strong, rising through Its previous record price of 6S to 50. Chrsa- rvmnn at unio at m also touched a price never' reached by that stock." The movement In steel was attributed to the restoration of wages by the Independent steel companies nnd the Inference drawn from that action as to the returning profits cf the Industry, even at the lower prices st which the receat heavy orders have been booked. News from the copper trade con tinued very encouraging and a buoyant rise In copper was In progress In the London market, when the decline In Amalgamated Copper on account of the death rf the president of the company checked tha ad vance. Crop news was considered favorable In spit of the rise In the price of wheat. The further outgo of gold to France had r.o Influence. Currency continues to arrive In such volume from the interior as to serve as an effective offset. The con troller's abrtract nf national bank reports for.

Advices from eastern markets were decidedly bearlsb, as receipts there were considerably heavier than anti cipated and this, together with the liberal local supply, made a rather depressing In fluence on the trade, prices being un evenly lower from start to finish. Some of th4 handy light and medium weight beeves such as all classes of buysrs were after did not show so very much decline, while on the other hand the' heavy grades as well as the unfinished grades were fully 10c lower thatf yesterday and slow at that. Outside orders were fairly liberal, but local dressed beef men all took a very bearish view of the situation and were indifferent buyers throughout. It being well along to ward noon before much impression had been made on the receipts. Increased supplies ot cows and heifers also gave buyers a chance to cheapen up and, while prices were fairly well sustained on the light grades, the general market was pretty close to 10c lower on the ordi nary run of stuff. Tha trade waa rather slow throughout, but the fair demand waa sufficient to clean up the offerings in very good season. Inquiry from the country for stockers and feeders has been Improving steadily this week and In spite of the depression In fat cattle tha market tor desirable stock steers and feeders held fully steady and the limited offerings of this character changed bands In good season at firm figures.

T ' T7. -.1JB ISO I K) SHEEP The bearish feeling that per vaded sheep circles yesterday was still evi dent today, but limited receipts served to bolster up values and put the market on a comparatively steady basis. Supplies were onesided ss well as meager, there being only a light sprlnklng of wooled stock. There were not enough wooled offerings among the arrivals to make, much of a market. . Clippers opened about steady with yester day and met with a cool reception. The trade was slow, considering the limited re ceipts, but salesmen were determined in their efforts to extract the limit of values nd on moat sales trading figures were not materially different from yesterday. Two loads of clipped lambs, the kind that sold yesterday at 17.90, registered In the same notch today. A small string of shorn ewis were good enough to make $6.10, but there waa practically nothing In ewes or wetli u with which to test values. While the market on spring lambs Is generally of a vary tickle nature and for that reason difficult to call at Its true level, prices on young stuff this morning appeared to suffer more than values on clipped stock. There were about three decks of spring lambs on sale, the best bunch bringing 610.00, and a band of light weights moving nt 67.00.
