New York, April 19. Heavy sell
ing of industrial stocks occurred to
day after fair progress forward had
been made in early dealings. The
reasons for what was a rather sud
den onslaught against quotations
were not plain on the surface of
business,, although it was evident
that a renewal rate of 9 per cent for
call money hastened the output of
offerings toward noon. That the
nioney situation was not the primary
influence behind- liquidation was
shown, however, in the fact that the
call loan rate declined to 7 per cent
early in the afternoon, but there was
no accompanying recovery of stocks.
On the contrary, the selling pres
sure was most pronounced late in
the day. .
Motor Issues Declined.
Motor issues were cromlnent In the de
cline, General Motors receding $ points
net for the "old" shares, but petroleum
and steel Insues were forced down abruptly
and numerous specialties lately the favor
ites or large speculators, were weak
throughout the day. At the close net de
clines extending from 2 to i points were
widely spread about." The railroad de
partment continued sluggish with moder
ate price changes. '
Again Liberty bonds were put upon the
market lp quantity larger than the de
mand could absorb, despite large insti
tutional buying reported by dealers.
The hearlnh element seemed to find
material to promote their undertakings
In the remarks of Chairman Gary of the
steel corporation, which emphazled the
necessity for maintaining large .cash bal
ances at all times. This , was construed
as an indication that extra dividends
could hardly be looked for in the near
future by holders of steel common. As
a matter or - rart. Mr. uary a oDservs
tions at the annual meeting of share
owncrR contained sound business principles,
referring to the larger necessities of the
nour in respect to me conservation or
working capital rather than dividend possibilities.
The current high cost of capital Is caus
ing corporations In every line to add
to their assets and to handle day-to-day
operations to as great an extent as pos
sible without recourse to the loan mar
Watch Jap Finances.
It was notable in brokerage house dis
cussion of the stock market that atten
tion wsa being paid to news of financial
difficulties In Japan. Thut.far the cables
have brought little Information of what
has been going on in that country, but
privates advices of the last few days show
that an Industrial readjustment is In pro
gress -which caused depression of com
modity as well as security quotations. The
Toklo stock exchange was closed for a day
or two last week, but has since reopened.
a large banK was lorced to close its doors
and there has been some distress among
bill brokers. Evidently recent events have
been a culmination of altered trade out
look which flrseshowed its effect in Jan
uary. An overdone speculation in stocks
has been corrected, but there is still plenty
of evidence, according to local Japanese
sources, of great credit stringency. The
discount rate of the bank of Japan has
been rslsed to 10 per cent, ait extraor'd.ln
oxily high point; and the Japanese finan
cial leaders are striving to prevent an ex
tension of credit strain. The speculative
element in securities here are moved to
developments inasmuch as it is recalled
that the famous "peace" break of: prices
In December, 1910, was preceded by a
violent decline on the Toklo erehange,
Tha foreign exchange market was
marked by strength of French, . Italian
and Belgian rates and ft steady tone of
sterling. Lire at the final quotation of
31.00 recorded a rise of 63 points. French

Chicago Tribune-Omaha Be Leased Win.
Qiicago, April 19. New high fig
ures were made for all grains today
as the result of continued wet and
cold weather over the belt and a re
alization that receipts of grain at
terminal markets under the best of
conditions- could not be large for
some weeks to come owing to the
delay in farm work and the scarcity
of cars. There was heavy profit
taking in corn early, but offerings
were readily absorbed, and sellers
of offers had to protect themselves.
Toward the last the break in stocks
and renewal of selling by longs
made a good, reaction, but the close
was at net gains of H2sAc on
corn and 15lJ4c on oats, 22c
on rye and 79c on barley, the lat
ter on September, which closed at
Heavy Sale of Corn.
Provisions were stronger with grains
early, bat failed to maintain the advance
and closed with pork unchanged to S6c
higher, lard 2o lower to 6c higher and
short ribs unchanged to 60 higher.
- Extremely heavy selling of corn by
throo commission houses featured the trade
at the opening. The hulk of It was re
garded as long grain, but the market was
little affected, the sales falling to cause
a reaction of more than o. Sentiment
was generally bullish, and news favored
that side. Short covering and buying by
the pit element and another set of com
mission houses readily absorbed the offer
ings and later stoplosa orders were un
coveted. Export demand for corn was good at the
seaboard and was fairly active, one In
quiry being for a quantity that would re
qulro 1,500,000 bushels of grain to fill.
Sample values unchanged to 2o higher.
No. 1 mixed sold at 11.71, or lc under
the outside figure on the May.
Big Trade In Oats.
A big trade was on In oats, the feature
being the keen bujjing of the July by
houses with country connections. Trade
was heavy at times and while longs were
disposed to accept profits, the undertone
was strong tnrougnout tne aay.
. September la selling at the hlgheat fig
urea known. Closing trades were on a
good reaction. Seeding, of oats has been
greatly delayed, and with tho forecast for
more rains, the country naa Become ap
prehensive and bought futures. Sample
values lc to 2c higher.
Rye Makes Advance. .
General buying of rye by cash and com
mission houses and local professionals re
suited In prices being advanced 4c over
Saturday's close, with the finish on a
