THE SUSTDAY OKEGONIAN, PORTLJlND, MAY 1, 1904.
ARE NOT INVESTING
No Demand for Stocks
New York Market
AND tiO PRESSURE TO SELL
Vail Street, Consequently, Is Prac
tically Deadlocked Movement of
Gold to Paris Points to Issu
ance of Russian Loan.
NEW YORK. April 3a. The bank statement
was the only news of the day with any Im
portant bearing on the stock market, and It
was accepted -with languid Interest. Thlo was
partly due to the reeling: that the statement
eras not an accurate showing ot actual condi
tions. An Increase, although a small one.
the cash Item of the bank statement this week.
Including the largest EoM exports on record, is
an anomaly In ltoelf. It Is partlj explained
by the fact that the statement does not reflect
the 53,700,000 shipment of gold that went out
today, and which will be carried over Into
next week's statement. Even allowing for
thi th cash reserve Is more than $2,000,000
better than was estimated from the known
movements of money. Local cash operations
o .H-ron an the exnlanation of the difference.
It la generally believed that the outgo of
gold up to this time, except the Morgan ship,
xnent that went today, Is for oJicr purposes
than the Panama Canal payment, the princi
pal portion of which, therefore, remains to be
provided for. The details of the operation are
still Bomewhat obscure to "Wall street, espe
cially the manner of the actual withdrawal ot
Government deposits from the banks and gold
from the Treasury and their immediate lodg
ment. This uncertainty waa one of the factors
in the stagnation of the day's stock market.
The price movements were confined to special
ties. Total bond sales were $037,000.
There has been no sign of life In the Invest
ment demand for stock this weel., and prices
have drifted sluggishly. The ease and abund
ance of money keeps the market free from any
pressure to sell to procure caeh resources, and
those who are not obliged to sell have every
Incentive to keep their offerings off the mar
Jcet, in view of Its small power of absorption.
JU the eame time, the abundant facilities In
the money market have proved no inducement
to operators to accumulate stocks for specu
lative purposes, ao doubt and uncertainty over
the future course ot values offers no assurance
of profits on the operation. The market Is
practically deadlocked in consequence.
The movement of gold toward Paris, In view
of the large resources already at hand there,
strengthens the conviction that the Issue of a
large Russian loan there la Imminent. The
securities market In London has fared ratner
better than our own by reason of the relaxing
of the money rates, and has also shown a
good Investment demand for high-grade securi
ties and an awakening speculation In Soutn
African mining stocks. London has shown no
desire, however, to buy American securities.
The large gold export. In connection with the
Panama payment and the lndlffeercnce felt
towaTd It, Is in strong contrast tilth the
nervousness displajed at the time the pay
ment waa first considered, and the numeroJs
contrivances then ""discussed for casing the
strain of the operation.
Bonds were dull, but prices steadily main
tained. United States new -Is have advanced
per cent on call during the week.

Light Deliveries of Barley on May
Contracts-Potato Market Now

SAN FRANCISCO. April 30. (Special.)
Leading cereals were quieter and closed

ness. From indications, deliveries of barley

of May wheat was delivered on expiring con

ADVANCING TENDENCY CHECKED.
Bullish News In Chicago Grain Pit, Followed
by Trout-Taking. ,
CHICAGO. April 30. Indifferent cables and
brilliant weather throughout the Northwest
and Southwest caused an easier tone in wheat
at the opening, the July delivery being down
c to 84c. An active commission-house de
mand, however, soon developed, with shorts
free buyers of May. In consequence, the May
option cold up about a cent, while July ad
vanced 4c The leading factor In bringing out
the improved demand was the almost sensa
tionally bullish crop news from the Ohio Val
ley Late weakness In corn, and a desire on
the part of a few holders to take profits over
Sunday checked the advancing tendency, but
the close was firm and near the high point.
Final quotations on July were at 85c after
the price had touched S56S5c. May ranged
between 88c and 00. closing at 89c
The corn market was heavy all day. July
opened unchanged to a shade higher, at 484
4Sc. and closed at 4848c May closed at
There was some good feujlng In oats early In
the day. The market continued strong until
the last half-hour, when some of the advance
was lost on profit-taking. The close, however,
was firm. July closed at 33c, and May closed
The principal business In provisions was In
the way of changing from May to July, al
though there was some liquidation through
commission houses. Indications are for in

NEAR END OF SEASON
But Two Grain Cargoes Were
Shipped Last Month.
SOUND HAS POORER SHOWING
Lumber Movement From Portland in
April Double That of the Preced
ing Month-Cargo of the
" Chlng Wo.
Only two Trtieat "cargoes were, shipped
1 roin, Portland In April. They were car
ried on the French barks Armen and La
Bruyere, both sailing for the United
Kingdom for orders. These cargoes and
the small amount sent to San Francisco
aggregated but. 193,450 bushels, only a
little more than half what was shipped
In the same month last year and about
a quarter the amount that went forward
In April, 1902. The showing, however, Is
better than that made on the- Sound, all
the ports In the North only sending- out
105,046 bushels, of which 7f,7SS bushels
went to California. For the cereal year
to date, Portland has shipped 4,115,346
bushels of wheat, as against 2,075,044
bushels shipped by Puget Sound ports.
Flour shipments from this port were
also light In April, amounting to only 47,
633 barrels, while in April last year they
were 94,100 barrels, and In April, 1903,
111,579 barrels. Although the Portland
exports were but half what they were a
year ago,-the shbwlng made In the North
was far more unfavorable, Puget Sound
exporting 74,195 barrels last month, as
against 237,336 In the month of April last
The table given , below of total ship
ments from Oregon and "Washington ports
for the season up to date sets forth plain
ly the market falling oft in the wheat
and flour business this Year:

12,061,430 feet of rough and dressed lum
ber, as compared with 6,795,710 feet In
March. 16,741,116 feet In February and
13,303.741 feet in January. Of the April
business, seven cargoes went to California

her since she left the Eastern Coast
Ships laden with coal oil often consume
in the neighborhood of 200 days on the
passage to the Asiatic Coast, but the
Engelhorn has been almost a month
more than the usual time In making the
passage and has not yet been heard
from. The rate for reinsurance is quoted
at 15 per cent and It is likely to be ad
vanced if the ship is not heard from soon.

official statement for the week of the New
York Associated Banks showed a net increase
of $1SS,000 cash and the surplus reserve was
reduced by only a- Htjle more than $1,000,000.
Even nnder the average system of the clearing-house
banks, the shipments of gold for
the week should, it would seem, have shown
a less ot nearly $3,500,000 of cash. Tues
day's exports of $6,500,000. calling for the
whole of that amount, because the withdraw
als were made early in the bank week. Thurs
day's export of $2,500,000 for one-half of
this eum, and Saturday's export of nearly
$1,000,000 for one-sixth of the amount, the
total of these averages making $8,500,000 as
above. Inasmuch as the remainder of the
amount exported, or $4,250,000, waa carried
over, under tho average system, into the cur
rent week, the statement was clearly made
on largely declining averages for cash.

borrowing by $3,246,600. carrying thla Item to
a new higher record. Cash Increased $188,
000. the specie decreasing $961,000. and legal

ancy of $1,064,300 between the estimated and
the- actual, change In cash. Deposits showed

or $1,5SS,000 more than the amount called
for by the sum of Increase in loans and the

not balance. The required reserve was aug
mented by $1,243,350. through the Increase in
deposits; deducting from this sum the net
gain in cash left. $1,059,450, as the decrease
In surplus reserve to $33,144,450. Computed
