Exceedingly Irrcsrular and Confused
Movement All Day.
NEW TORK. May 15 Operations in the
stock market continued to be left largely to
professional liands today, the movement being
exceedingly Irregular and confuFed all day
General speaking; it could be falrlj wild that
railroad stocks were Ann to strong, while the
. industrial v,ere -weak. This distinction was
obvious at the opening of the market, and the
fiays trading tended rather to emphasize it,
except that the demoralizing tendencies in the
ateel industrials ultimately affected the whole
list, and dragged back even the strongest of
There was a brief show of strength after the
opening by Tederal Steel and Steel i Wire,
probably on coverings of shorts, sold on je
terda's break, but in the late trading three
stocks, as well as others of the group, fell to
the lowest. The declines ranged all the way
from 1 to nearly 0 points, the latter for Ten
nessee Coal. There was no definite news to
account for the weakness, but rumors were
plentiful that dividends would be reduced or
passed, -and that further deep cuts were- pend
ing In the price of the output of the largest
competitor of the steel companies whose etpvks
are dealt In on the stock exchange. The
declaration of a first dividend on the common
stock of National Tube, and the reports of the
reopening of sundry mills, had no effect In
checking the decline.
Among the .notable exceptions to the weak
cess in the Industrial department were the
group of Nw York City stocks. Including
Aaedc&a lcc Consolidated Gas led ia. the
rise of S points, and the local tractions r-'
rpoaded. A meeting of the directors of tho
American Sugar Refining Company caused an
"uneasy demand from the shorts, which lifted
the .stock at ono time 2H- 1 the railroad list, i
Burlington continued In good demand at an ex
treme advance of 1. in spite of denials of the
nrrecred refunding plan.
The granger group and Western stocks were
most benefited In sympathy, and showed good
advances. In spite of reports of declining traf
fic, both East and West bound. There was
said to be large buying for account of an out
standing short interest In the West In the rail
road list. The relief to the London money
market afforded by the receipts of Russian gold
aroused tho hope that no Immediate" demand
would be made on New Tork by London for
gold. This rcas -an Influence ia the da'3
strength In our stock market, though It is ex
pected that further -shipments will be made to
Paris by Thursday's steamer.
The statement of the April foreign trade of
the United States, disclosing a maintenance of
extraordinary favorable conditions has ele
vated somewhat the evidences of continued re
action In Interior trade. The market closed
heavy and unsettled by the break In the steel
lnaustrlals; the railroad stocks holding only a
part of their gains.
The bond market -was not active, but prices
were well sustr'ned. Total sales, par value,

WASHINGTON, Hay 13. The War De
partment has maSe public simultaneously
liere'and In Havana the schedules of the
revised Cuban tarlfff which go Into effect
tlune 15 next The revlseay tariff, it Is cal
culated, -will slightly Increase the revenues
of the island, which were last year ap
The primary purpose o the revision of
the Porter tariff Is not to DrOvide asrainst
a deficiency of, revenues but to stimulate
.Importations from the united btates. 'xae
Ltrade between Cuba and the United States
has not augmented elnce the American
occupation, and even tie application of
the Porter tariff was not attended by any
heneftt in the .increase of, the aggregate
volume of. trade. Of the Imports into Cuba
less than 50 per cent originate ia the
The Porter tariff made cuts in the old
Spanish tariff, and in the beginning atten
tion was directed to food products. It was
felt to be just that these necessaries of life
should sustain as little 'tax as possible.
Bo cattle "were admitted at a duty of $1
per head, and food stuffs generally paid
only IS per cent ad valorem. The military
authorlUes In charge of the Island vere
surprised to witness the effect of. these
changes. The prices of food did not go
down in Cuba; several staples at least
actually advanced. "Lack of competition
and conservatism, are the reasons assigned
for this- state of. affairs.
There may be a remedy In reciprocity
with the United States. At any rate the
tariff revisers felt that they could do little
to meet this strange situation and rec
ommended that the few changes they
submit be tested for another year before
more radical measures are employed.
Th,ere(ore, about the only important re
duction mado by them in the food schedules
is in the duty on salt cod and stock
pbh (largely consumed in Cuba), which Is
reduced from $2 to $1, and in the duty op
wheat flour, reduced from $1 30 to $L The
duty on cattle is raised from $1 to $2 per
There are many other chinges in the
other schedules, howo er, that are belleA ed
to be of greater importance to American
exporters doing business with Cuba. These
changes relate largely to manufactured
