longer duration than on yesterday and the
net gain wus small. News regarding rain
today was somewhat discounted because
the showers were said to be scattered and
not of the best variety. Announcements by
railroads that recent crop damage narra
tives had been exaggerated, especially as
to tho effects of cold snaps, were more than
offset by seemingly countless advices by

NEW YORK, April 3 . (Sp clal Tele
gram. I Active, but weak, ep.tomlred the
ginersl tone of the stock market during
Ihe greali.r part of the present week.
H.iarlsh Interests have lieen In
ilueiKing every Incident of business to
lend an unfavorable aspect to the general
sKculatlve situation. To some extent
ti.ey have succeeded In intensltylng the
dlrptiFltton ot the financial community lo
hold aloof lor a time. Call money this
week went to 7 per cent, the highest since,
January. The calling of loans was di
rectly responsible for the hardening of
the market. The. awplua in ban4i nave
lien depleted through heavy exports of
gold and It was necessary to ca.ll loans
this week to make up the reserve. Hith
erto the outgo of gold has betn counter
balanced by the currency receipts, but tnls
week the movement was modified. The
New York bunks: lost approximately
I4aO0,0OO In cash reserves up to today. In
the currency movement there Is shown for
the week a. net gain of So.lM.WX) offset In
a measure, by a loss of S2,7oS.OOO to the
'Ihe unprecedented gold flow of S17.50O.0OO
abroad i last week s bank statement,
was complied as tha chief Item. A tem
porary enevk has lallen upon exports by
the uctlon. of the Bank of Lngland In low
ering the price of eagles In London. The
mon-.y situation Is Just now a big fac
tor in the market.
While calls upon banks Incident to May 1
Involving disbursements have been held by
some as a factor In the hardening of tiie
market, we must look outside of New York
for another cause which may have helped
harden the market.
Ilauks Loaning Heavily.
For some time It has been hinted thai
the Interior banks were becoming more and
more loaned up and tnis situation has now
been ltallsed by M all street.
The heavy laud speculation that lias been
gaining headway iniough the middle wesi
Tor tne last several months has now
reached proportions that it-call the serious
occurrences of previous similar occasions.
The ty4ng up ot resources of the interior
banks in real estate loans means, ot course,
thut Wall street cannot look lo tho Interior
as a gruat reserve for funds whenever there
Is a stiffening of the rates ill the eastern
money market, as has been the case ever
since the panic. Appreciation of this tact
at this stage among the batiks and largo
borrowers Is without doubt the underlying
reason In chief tor tho new development In
the money market.
The action ot tne United States Steel cor
poration directors this week In placing the
common slock upon a 6 per cent busis has
had a most salutary effect. And now a care
ful analysis ot the past and present Income
of the steel corporation leads lo the belief
that the company will have no difficulty
in maintaining the basis of lis ttock. Had
the company paid 6 per cent on the com
mon stock each car since Us organization
there would have remained a balance of
X206.o00,000 a-vallable for new construction.
Steel common Is now selling at X24. It
has been looked upon as a speculative slock
and the irrand rises and falls have scared
away Investors. Hut the action of the
directors raising the dividend makes it de
sirable, no mailer what Its board quota
tions are-. Its holders will lose the cnance
ot "professionalism."
Railroads liaising AVnges.
The feature of the railroad situation Just
now Is the wage-raising movement. Fif
teen of the great railroads will Increase
wages 145,000,000. These fifteen roads, which
Include all the affiliated New York Central
lines and all the lines of the Pennsylvania
system, show annuul gross earnings of ap
proximately SI. 100,000,000. Their aggregate
surplus Is annualiy about S6JI.000.0o0, so it
can lie seen Increased wages will not hinder
development. At the same time It Is likely
that maturing flnanclul plans will result In
the Issue of S200.O0O.O0O by various railroads
shortly. Within the last few days there
have been Indications that several of the
roads are ready to Issue new bonds aa soon
as market conditions become better.
Directors of the Chicago. Milwaukee &
St. Paul are expected to authorize an Issue
of bonds for extension and Improvement.
The amount will probably be in the neigh
borhood of S50.000.000. The proceeds of this
Issue will be used in furthering a plan for
the improvement of the St. Paul and Its
Puget Sound extension. The St. Paul
proper Intends to spend S2.000.0O0 for double
tracking. There Is no doubt of the ability
of the St. Paul to carry the burden. If it
had not been for the severe winter the an
nouncement of a S50.000.000 bond Issue by the
St. Paul would have attracted no attention.
The stockholders of the Baltimore & Ohio
nave approved a proposition to issue S37.
200.000 worth of new convertibles and S37,
200.000 capital stock.
Railroad Earnings.
In nine months Baltimore & Ohio has
earned 7 per cent on its outstanding stock.
The Southern Railway Is well ahead of last
year's earnings so far. The surplus for nine
months Is S4.O00.000. Damage to the cotton
crop kept down revenues. Hard winter and
liberal expenses-have kept down the figures
of the Atohlson, Topeka & Sunt a Fe. Nine
months' figure are not yet available.
There was a boom in International buying
this week and several copper and metal
stocks were purchased for foreign buyers.
The weather this week did considerable
damage to crops and fruit.
Advices from Washington today stated
that final action upon the administration
railroad bill might not be taken until June
and that congress would hardly adjourn be
fore July 1.
Business conditions In the south continue
to Increase In prosperity, although the cot
ton crop was badly hurt by cold weather.
Tho bond market continues firm.
Bends were rosy. Total sales, par value,
SI. 371. 000: 1'nlted States 4s. registered, de
clined 4 P- cent on call during the week.
