more adverse developments ut home
New low records for the year were
reKhtfered by a number of Industrial
favorites, especlully steels and equip
ments. Minimum quotations for a
long period marked the downward
trend of various Investment rails.

points. Among industrials Republic

recent backward tendencies with oils,

sluggish flnul hour, but losses far ex
ceeded gains, the latter being limited
to unimportant specialties,
Rales 4S5.000 shares.
The British 'industrial situation wnj
viewed with greater apprehension by
international bunking Interests and
impelled recurrent liquidation in this
market of foreign owned stocks, such
as Canadian Pacific and Royal Dutch.
Conditions In the money and foreign
markets were unaltered, call loans
holding firm at 7 per cent, with nom
inal offerings of time funds. Apart
from the Italian rate, which continued
to strengthen, International remit
tances took their cue from the British
quotition, these being moderate low

eries, and some foreign Issues also Im
proved but domestic rails were affect
ed by the heaviness of stocks. Total
sales, par value, $8,875,000.
Hesult In Ik'profwktll
CHICAGO, April 14. (A. P.) Re
newal of anxiety regarding labor con
ditions In Great Britain had a de
pressing effect yesterday In the grain
market;. heat, corn, oats and rys
declined to the lowest prices this sea
son, and closed heavy, with wheat I
to 4lj down, May 1.22 V, to 1.23 and
July LOT to 1.07. Corn lost 1 6-
and oats Mil 1-8 to 1 Mil
1 1-!. Provisions closed from 15c de
cline to a gain of 2 l-2c.
A fresh wave of liquidation gathered
increasing force soon after the market
opened and it became apparent that
the overnight developments in the
British coal strike had deprived the
market of any immediate aggressive
support. Bearish domestic crop ad
vices tended further jlo weaken sales
and so did despatches saying Cana
dian wheat yas being rushed into the
L mted States to forestall the proposed
emergency tariff. Something of a ral.
ly near the end was not well main
tained. Europe took 750,000 bushels.
Corn -and oats lacked support ana
receded with wheat. ' ;
Provisions were ' comparatively
strong owing to upturns in hogs, and
to timely bids from a packer.
