THE MORNING. OBEOONTAN FRIDAY, APRIL 5, 1901'.
The salt trust has announced another
advance of 50 cents per ton on coarse
and of S2 per ton on fine grades. This
change is in line with the policy of grad
ual rise which has been pursued for sev
eral months. Salt which once was be
tween $3 and $12 per ton is now between
$11 and $20 per ton. Tealers have no
means of knowing whether the new fig
ures are permanent or subject to further
Eggs were uneasy yesterday at quota
tions. A few small, lots went at 13 cents,
out such sales seemed to be merely for
the purpose of fueling the situation, for
no large amounts were offered at that
price. Some dealers attempted an ad
vance to 15 cents, but later announced
a firmness at 14 cents. It was suspected
that the former .figure was a manipula
tion to secure stability at 14 cents, which
there -was solicitude to maintain. But,
despite brave reporjts, eggs were decid
edly weak, with the majority of sales at
13 -cents. Dealers look for Bteadtness
until Easter, and lor decline next week.
Eecolpts continue large and out of pro-
portion to demand. Prices are a little
high to encourage storing, but some mer
chants may prefer to keep their large
supplies rather than to suffer a drop.
Other dealers are waiting for lower
prices before storing. It Is evident that
the present overstocked market must be
relieved soon, either by Increased orders
at existing figures -or by decline.
Butter was sluggish and weak. Cali
fornia supply is still large, and Oregon
is Increasing. Although the mutual pres
sure is considerable, decline tills week Is
not looked for. Oregon cheese is still
limited and In eager demand. California
Is sufficient for orders. Poultry was firm
yesterday. The small receipts moved oft
California produce is well cleaned up,
and the steamer due tonight will replen
ish an empty market. Domestic vegeta
bles are increasing, which will have the
gradual effect of lessening shipments
from the South. A small lot of strawberries-
was -on hand" yesterday. Potatoes
have livened up a little lately, owing to
a better outlook in California, and per
haps also to the fact that few farmers
"have come in this week with supplies.
Prices on all kinds are firm. A carload
of bananas is due today, and also a large
.supply of oranges.

The wheat market was still moving
downward yesterday, but it had lost some
ot the velocity that characterized the
clump of the day previous, and the net
loss in the East was only about a quar
ter of a cent. In the local market, there
was a continuation of the stagnation
which has been a feature of the situation
since the decline began. Walla Walla
was nominal at 57 cents, but there was
nothing selling. The only news in the
freight market was the charter of the
steamship Monmouthshire at a rate which
was withheld, but generally believed to
be about 39 shillings, as she was offering
the day previous at 40 shillings. The.
milling demand for wheat is not very
brisk, on account of the dullness in the
lOriental flour trade. Hong Kong advices
of 'March 9 report 800,000 quarter sacks
of 'Oregon and Washington and 250,000
quarter sacks of California on soot, with
liardly any demand and the damp season

JfEW YORK STOCK MARKET.
Day of Wild Speonlntion and of Ex
NEW YORK. April 4.-Today was one
of violent excitement and extreme nerv
ous tension" in the stock market. Prices
-fluctuated in an unprecedentedly violent
and erratic manner all day. The specu
lative spirit had apparently run wild and
nothing seemed too great to attempt In
the feverish imagination of the excited
The boldness and recklessness of the
manipulation have probably never been
equaled on the New York Stock Exchange,
and variations of a point or more between
sales were viewed with as much equa
nimity as a fraction of In an ordinary
market. Blocks' of thousands of shares
of stocks were tossed backward and for
ward ano millions of dollars wero ven
tured with no more concern than though
pennies were being pitched. News or ac
tual conditions of properties "played no
part whatever in the speculation.
The method of operations was largely
to follow designated leadership. A sud
den and violent advance In any stock
was sufficient to attract an overwhelming
following, In which the scramble to buy
caused a volatile rise, with quick prollts
for the leaders, who hastened to unload.
Monday seemed a remote period In the
view of the speculators and their opera
tions did not appear to be destined to
go beyond the day's trading. The mar
ket was an admirable one in which to
unload stocks and It is within reason to
suppose that the excitement was stimu
lated by every possible artful device to
further this object. How far It was tak
en advantage of may be Inferred ' from
the comparatively small number of stocks
which retain any Important net gains, In
spite of the appearance of extreme buoy
ancy which the market had the most of
the time. The trunk lines, Illinois Cen
tral, Amalgamated Copper, Colorado Fuel
and some of the dormant investment
stocks may he set apart, although none
of them closed near, the highest prices.
Otherwise '-smalt gains of considerable
losses will he found to be the Tufe.
The precipitate manner In which long
stock was unloaded on the opening bulge
showed the eagerness of the bulls to
take their profits. The violent manner in
which prices broke showed that a point
In the matter was of little account in
consideration of making a quick sale.
The outside public were excited buyers
at the opening, attracted by yesterday's
extraordinary advance and the execution
of their orders which were apparently
without limit as to price, caused an ebul
lient opening. Profit-taking met the -ad
vance immediately. When the first itorm
"oTTTqaidaTJorTTiad" spent "Itself, efforts
were- made to -revive the speculative en
thusiasm by bidding up new stocks. The
attempt met with' -considerable success al
though profit-taking continued heavy under-
cover of thelate advance In the
trunk lines and Amalgamated Copper.
The market's sensitive spot was clearly
indicated by its action, under the influence
of the flurtywiiy-tSdll "money to above 6 per
cent. Some of the stocks touched the
lowest level of the day la the spasm of
liquidation this forced. When the money
rate fell back, covering by shorts caused
some violent recoveries, but the closing
was exceedingly feverish and Irregular.
The large demands from the interior for
cash and the prospect o'f a weak bank
statement explained the flurry.
Business in bonds was not so large -tele-tlvely
as in stocks and the movement of
prices was irregular. Total sales, par
United States 4s, old cuupon, advanced
per cent on the last call.
Speculation has been fairly rampant on
the stock market during the short week
and the violent price movement and the
unprecedented volume of the "dealings In
the stocks which have held the foremost
place in the dealings indicate wildness
and reckless excess. The speculative fe
ver Is evidently widely extended and the
telegrpah plays an Important part In the
dealings, bringing orders to the Stock Ex
change In Immense volume from all over
A notable feature of the market is that
the stocks most notably affected have
been the- high-grade dividend-paying
railroad stocks. There have been many
old rumors Tevlved regarding these prop
erties to carry along the advance, but of
actual news regarding " them there has
been none of Importance and the rumors
have been met with emphatic official de
nials In many instances. These denials
have been totally Ignored by the specula
tors who have continued to buy the
stocks on an enormous scale and to bid
up the prices with reckless confidence
.and then to cite the continued rise In
prices" as confirmation of the rumors.
The increasing, wildness of the specula
tion haa been viewed with misgivings by
many observers, and many of the more
conservativa commission-houses have ad
vised their customers to sell out and take
their profits. But such advice, counts
for little when the selling la repeatedly
followed by renewed buoyancy and further
excited advances., ,
Tho conviction tias been widespread that
much of the, buying, was for investment
by hankers .and capitalists and instigated
by reports of others seeking extension
or Interest and control, but this supposi
tion canndt be Verified in any authorita
There has,, been enormous profit-taking
at every stage of the advance and this Is
adduced as evidence of the health of the
market. But It Is to be borne In mind
that the taking of profits involved a
buyer at the high level, as well as a sel
ler. No adequate judgment can be formed
of the health of the market until the
character of these buyers, who are the
present t holders, becomes better known.
This can -"only be by a considerable reac
tion in prices.
-The Money Market.
. The quarterly disbursement, of Interest
and dividends have afforded relief to the
money markets all over the worjd this,
week. In New York the purchase of
short-term Government bonds for the
sinking fund by the Secretary of the
Treasury '-was an additional factor to
Tvards relief. London, borrowed, gold in
New Y.ork. as being the cheapest money
center and shipped it to Paris in pay
ment of obligations. Lopklng to the
future it is expected that the British
Government will off.er Its $250,000,000 war
hian for subscriptlbn In the latter part
The Easter movement of cash ire 'the.
English country markets Is making .heavy
inroads on, the Bank, of England's re
serve, this- week's decerase In bullion
amounting, to over $10,000,000. London
financial authorities do not expect 'a
large return flow during April. That the
flotation of the loan will lead to a coni
elderablc movement of jjold from New
i York to London direct Is therefore to
considered as one of the probabilities of

CHICAGO. April 4. Foreign Influence
came to the aid of holders of May corn,
and, Phillips, the bull leader.- had "little
to do stive to witness a favorable turn
of the market as a recompense for yes
terday's setback. The Liverpool market
rendered notable service In refusing to
follow thevdecllne on this side 1 yesterday.
This attitude frightened shorts and for
an hour at the opening trade was tvild.
Compared with the previous close at
41, the market, opened with bids rang
ing from 42 to 43. Phillips took 200,000
bushels. The market worked back to
42 during the forenoon. About noon
a commission Jlrm offered 250,000 bushels
May at 42. Phillips look It and offered
the same price for another similar lot.
He did not get It, but the affair 'created'
renewed alarm among shorts, advancing
the price to 43. The close was ot 43
lc over yesterday and only c under
Wheat was the least firm of the. f-raln
markets. ' May opened a shade to c
higher at 72 to 72c under the influence
of the Liverpool market, -vVhlch did not
respond to the weakness on thlB sfde yes
terday. Yesterday's buyers became sellers
and the market eased off. Country lots
came out on the decline and May was"
iorcea aown to vic c under yester
day's weakest point. A sharp cash de
mand and the strength in oats and corn
later caused covering by shorts and May
rallied to 7272c. The close was
steady, May c lower at 72c.
Business .in oats was not heavy, but
prices were strong in sympathy with
corn. May closed c higher at 25c.
The undertone of the provisions mar.
ket was easier on selling by packers. May
pork closed 25c lower and lard and ribs
each 5c depressed.

STEEL TRUST ISGRQWING.
Has Acquired More Properties Ir cm
Mnrltct Is Strong.
NEW YORK, April 4. The Iron Age
-The announcement of the organization
of the United States Steel - Corporation
has brought some surprises, notably as
to the absence in the directory of a larg
er rftnreeentatlon of the principal men
ln some of the constituent concerns. , The
scope of the new concern is now being
enlarged) more particularly through the
acquisition of more ore properties. Tho
Oliver Sixth, of the Oliver Mining Com
pany; nottcbntrolled by the Carnegie Steel
Company, has .been added; the Aregon,
with a product of 400,000 tons, has been
purchased, and an- option has been se
cured on the Cleveland Cliffs Company,
the most extensive and valuable of the.
outside concerns, with their transporta
tion interests and their charcoal fur
naces. It Js a fact, too, that negotiations
are pending for the purchase of some of
the large steel plants, which Still linger
In single glory.
The Iron markets ae very strong
throughout, and every suspicion of ma
nipulation to help along the floating of
the great consolidation has appeared. The
demand in every direction proves to be
enormous, and there Is no doubt but it
has for 'the present, at least, outrun tho
active capacity, great though it be. Pig
iron or steel purposes for prompt de
livery continues very scarce, and billets
are Simply unobtainable for early ship
ment. In fact, some' of the rolling mills
belonging to the consolidation are Idle
because the steel plants cannot furnish
them with material. Prehilums are the
rule, not alone for steel, but also for
a large variety of finished products, and
heavy orders are being placed.
As yet there are no Indications that the
danger point In values has been reached,
although' some'of the most Conservative
of consolidation managers avow that It
Is not .far off." There are no signs of
speculation anywhere, but on thet con
trary there Is a growing disposition to
Cover requirements for more distant de
livery, In some cases Into the fourth
In foundry Irons, buyers representing
a wide ' variety of- consumptive require
ments are etill coming Into the market
and good purchases continue, 1n spite of
the fact that the Southern furnaces are
now asking 511 75 for No. 2 foundry. As
an instance of how great the change has
been we may cite the fact that one lead
ing company last week made shipments
to Europe on old contracts, which netted
only 57 50 at the furnace.
t Another Instance of the sharp ,sirugglo
which European manufacturers are en
gaged In against, American competition Is
furnished by the bids for the second In
stallment of the famous Java cast-iron
water pipe order. The first, for about
3500 tons, was taken by R. D. Wood &
Co., of Philadelphia, last year. The sec
ond, for about 3600 .tons, has been captured
by a large French works at a figure
which, It is claimed, was 54 per ton below
the low.est American bid.

Tne Metal Markets.
NEW YORK, April 4. A reaction of
about 50 points occurred In the local metal
market today, principally due to rise of
1 in London and a scarcity of sellers
here. The close was firm at 525 S0)26 00,
while at London the close was also firm
at 114 173 6d on spot, and 112 10s for
futures. Copper was 2s Gd higher In Lon
don to, 68 15s for spot, and 69 6s 3d for
futures, but was deplorably bullish, with
prices more or less nominal on a basis
of 517 for lake and 516 62 for casting.
While a decline of 3s 6d was noted In
lead abroad, prices at the close here were
unchanged at 54 37. Trading In the
market for spelter was slow, with the
