BREWER'S DEATH IS DISCUSSED
Derision of Manresae Jest Ires et to
A ttend Fnnrrnl les It lee to Be
lief that American Tobacco
Case tClll be Settled Early
NEW TORK. March 81 The stock mar
ket today further disclosed It narrow limi
tation. The trader operated on one side
of the market for a time and then shifted
to the other side, while real buyers and
sellers apparently refrained from taking
any action at all.
Great uncertainly exist as to the sig
nificance of the decision of the supreme
court not to sccompsny the body of the
late Justice Brewer to Its resting place In
Kansas. The desire to avoid 'delay In the
public business gives rise to a supposition
In the financial district that the American
Tobacco rase maj be decided Monday. The
opinion la universal in sioca maraei cir
cles that the decision will be followed by
a pronounced movement of th market In
one direction or th other.
Another matter receiving much attention
wa the rumher of railroads following th
example of the Pennsylvania by advancing
wages. That action wa or mixed errect
on speculative sentiment. Th view ex
pressed by labor representative ascribed
a motive of caution to the action as de
signed to weaken prospective demands for
larger ln"reasee than thoee recorded. Tnt
the step would facilitate greements, how
ever, was assumed.
Uneasiness over the crop conditions wa
revived by the failure of predlctlona of
general rains In the Suuthwset and by the
cooler weather reported there. Another
wave of depression emanated from the
Granbv mining episode In the Boston mar
ket. The gravity of th Incident wa In
ferred from the news of Its Influence In so
remote a field as the Pari Bourse.
London sent reports of confident expec
tations of an early movement of gold from
New York to that center. An easing of
discount rate In London today was t
trlbuted to that prospect. The local money
market w-aa unaffected by the preparation
for the heavy April payments.
Bonds were easy. Total sales, par value,
$2,198,000. United States bonds were un
changed on call.
