RECORD OF IMPORTS
Heavier in February Than in
Any Previous Month.
SMALL EXCESS OF EXPORTS
Decrease in Figures of Shipments
Due to Fall in Price of Cotton
and Decline in Grain
"WASHINGTON. -March 21. The imports Into
the United States" in February. 1905. were
larger than in any earlier year In tho history
of our commerce, and the excess of exports
over imports -was smaller than in any month
since June. 1807. The only earlier month in
the history of our commerce In which im
ports have pateed the $100,000,000 line was In
April. 1S97. when large quantities of foreign
merchandise, especially sugar, were being
rushed. In to escape the Increased duties levied
by the Dingley act. which went Into e,ffect
in July of that year. The total value of im
ports In that month (April. 1697), was S101.
222,400. while that ot the month of February,
1903. was $103,007,052.
The imports of February, although a short
month, were $103,000,000. as against $89,000.
000 In February. 1904; $62,500,000 In Febru-.
arv. 1903; 5C8.000.000 In February. 1902; $84.-f-00.000
In February. 1901. and $69,000,000 in
February, 1900. The exports of February.
1905. were $109,000,000, against practloaljy
$110,000,000 in February of 1904; $125,500,000
In February. 1003; $101,500,000 in February.
1P02; $113,000,000 in February. 1001. and $119,
000,000 in February, 1600. The excess of ex
ports over imports In February. 1905, was In
round terms $0,000,000, as against practically
$30,000,000 in February, 1904; $43,000,000' in
February. 1903; $33,000,000 In February. 1902;
$48 000,000 in February. 1901. and $50,000,000
lo February. 1900. For the elgbt months end
ing with February. 1905, the imports were in
round terms $729,000,000. as against $651,000,
C00 In the corresponding months of the pre
ceding fiscal year; while the exports wro
' ''1O.OQ0.000, as against practically $1,048.
000,000 in the corresponding months of the
f-ereding year. ,
The excess of exports over imports in the
eight month ending with February was $2S1,
000.000. as against $393,500,000 in the corre
sponding month of the preceding fiscal year.
Mi $491,500,000 In the 'corresponding months
of (the I'scal year 1901. The February Im
ports, as already Indicated, are larger than
those of any earlier month in .the history of
our commerce, and tho exports are smaller
than those of any earlier February since
3900. with the single exception of February,
3902; and the excess of exports over Imports
Is smaller than In any month since October,
1S95, except the three months of April, May
and June, 1897, when Imports were excep
tionally high by reason of preparation for the
change in tariff which occurred In July of that
year. These figures are from the official pub
lications Issued by the Department of Com
merce and Labor through its Bureau of Sta
tistics. Tills reduction In exports is, as has already
been Indicated, due chiefly to the falling, off
In the quantity of wheat exported and a re
duction in the price per pound of cotton ex
ported. The wheat exports In the month of
February amounted to only $103,C31, against
$1,203,043 In February of last year, and the
flour $2,675,145. against $5,611,841.
The exports of cotton In February 'fell near
ly $11,000,000 in value below thbee of Feb-
ruary of the preceding year, and this was
due entirely to the fall In prices, the quantity
exported in February, 1905, being considerably
greater than In February. 1004.
Turning to the Import side, the large In
crease In importations apparently occurs
chiefly In manufacturers' materials and arti
cles of food. The detailed figures of the Im
port by articles aTe. only available up to
the end of January, tho February figures not
yet having been completed. The seven months
ending with January, however, show an In
crease of $33,000,000 in Imports of articles
in a crude condition for use in manufactur
ing and of about $30,000,000 in articles of
food. The Increase in- Importations of manu
facturers materials occurred chiefly in India
rubber, nearly $6,000,000, raw silk $12,000,000.
and about $8,000,000 In certain other article
used by manufacturers. The Increase in Im
portations of food stuffs occurred chiefly In
coffee, about $17,000,000, and sugar about
$14,000,000. la manufactures the figures for
the seven months ending with January enow
a slight reduction as compared with the cor
responding month of last year, though in these
statements with reference to details of imports
It should be understood that the figures are for
the coven months ending with January, the
details for February not having been completed.
Grain, Flour, Feed, Etc
There Is a revival in the Eastern demand
for Northwestern wheat. It has not resulted
in much business yet, but has caused holders
to ask higher prices, which have to be met
if the grain Is to be secured. Oats and bar
ley continue qu4c$. and hay Is dull and weak.

RUMORS OF DIVIDENDS
REPORTS ARE MADE USE OF TO
High Money Rates Cause Large Hold
ers, to Transfer Their Securi
ties to London.
NEW YORK. March 21. The narrowing lim
its of the speculation was a. tact clearly de
fined by the day's events In the money market.
and It Is generally believed that the money
outlook is the factor making for restriction.
Not only was the volume of dealings largely
curtailed. 'but It caused prices to sag.
The hope that yesterday" late ana strong
rally marked a resumption of the upward move
ment did. not last longer than the first neur
today. Profit-taking was freely In evidence.
and there was no substantial demand to follow
the align topenlng advance In prices. There
was a resumption of strength at some points
during the rest of the day. but it was In the
less important grade of stocks that failed to
Impress sentiment In the same degree as sim
ilar movements In stocks of the first class.
Neither was there evidence of strength well
sustained, the whole market chawing the effect
of the diminishing demand.
Industrials and epeclalties made up the
largest portion ot the day's showing of
strength. The Southern Iron merger report
was revived In full vigor, and taa railroad
equipment stocks still were responsive to the
brilliant business .prospects In that department
of Industry. The unvarying growth and ex
pansion reported from all lines of trads ana
Industry bad a natural Influence upon the
securlUes representing different industries cov
ered by these reports. In addition, there were
many rumors that dividend resumptions and
increases were in definite prospect, wnlcn
eventuated la the Tennessee Coal dividend.
The Corn Products stocks were ln contrast
to the rule, and suffered from expressed doubts
of the maintenance of the dividend. Justified,
as tho market closed, by the announcement of
a reduction. Sugar reflected the shutting down
of Its principal jeflnery. In the Chicago Union
Traction stocks, the obvious trouble was tne
action against Its franchises by the Chicago
In the railroad department, while tho interest
was small and the movements mostly abortive.
the reports upon which they were based pointed
to projects of grandiose proportions. Thus it
was said that Pennsylvania was taking over
Atchison with the purpose of guaranteeing a
5 per cent dividend on that stock. There were
vague Intimations of an immediate dividend
to be forthcoming on Southern Pacific Tne
Chesapeake & Oho movement also was connect
ed with dividend rumors.
The easier tone ot the call money market
was attributed to the passing of the effects of
the Government's withdrawals of deposits from
the banks last week. It was said also that
same large holders of securlUes were transfer
ring their fltock on a large scale to London,
with a view to taking advantage of the lower
money rate. The effect would be to relieve
the local' money market of that much demand,
and It is thought to confusa somewhat the
estimates of the demand for our securities for
foreign account. Time money was firmer- Ster
ling exchange continued weak. Tb"o closing of
the stock market was weak and at the lowest
Bonds were irregular. Total sales, par value,
$3,635,000. United States bonds were all un
