Work Toward Sounder Basis
NEW YORK. June . (A. P.)
Dun's report says:
Another month has passed wlthou
general recovery in business, but con
ditions are steadily working toward a
stronger and sounder basis. Changes
essential to revival have 'long been In
progress, and there Is hope that a more
decisive turn for the better will be wit
nessed after the ending of summer.
With special causes for hesitation, the
present situation is marked by waiting
in many Quarters, the disposition being
to defer important action until neces
sary readjustments have been extend
ed. While exceptions to this policy ap
pear in certain Instances where liqui
dation has seemingly been completed,
the attitude of most buyers is reflect
ed in their persistent disinclination to
operate beyond Immediate require
ments, future price consideration being
a factor. That the yielding in some
commodities has been checked is evi
denced by one smaller number of de
clines in Dun's list of wholesale quo
tations, but the prospect of additional
recessions is assigned as a reason for
the withholding of demands in not a
few lines and this phase is still promi
nent in the great iron and steel indus
try. Weekly bank clearings, tr,70S,
Tight Moncj llrings
NEW YORK, June 4. (A. P.)
Liquidation and short selling effected
further price impairment in the stock
market yesterday. Standard shares
lost one to five points, while specula
tive Issues fared even worse.
Pressure accumulated through tight
money, indications of trade depression
and further dividend omissions. Chief
among these were Cuba Cane sugar,
preferred, and Armour Leather, pre
ferred, while International Harvester
announced a cut in the common divi
dend. The Cuba Cane dividend action evi
dently came as a surprise. The stock
sustained an extreme loss of 13 points
on heavy offerings which included a
block of 4000 shares.
Other sugar shares were extremely
weak, as,were many food stocks, mo
tor subsidaries, cheaper oils, chemi
cals and shipping. Ralls were dull
and irregular. Weakness ruled at the
close on a turnover of 635,000 shares.
Call loans opened and renewed Into
next week at 7 1-2 per cent, a quota
tion that prevailed throughout the ses.
sion. Rates for time funds were unal
tered, hut supply diminished.
The heaviness of foreign exchange,
particular sterling, was associated with
selling from London on rejection by
British coal miners of the govern
ment's proposals. German and Greek
remittances alone showed comparative

Slower Export Demand
Lowers wheat Price
CHICAGO. June 4. (A, P.)
Sharp setbacks in the price of wheat
took place yesterday after the market
had touched new high record quota
tions for the July delivery. Slowing
down of export business counted as a
bearish factor, and so. too did ideal
weather conditions. The finish was
heavy at 3 V, to 3 c net. decline, with
July $1.37 to $1.3714. Corn lost 1 to
2c, and oats to lc. In provisions,
'he outcome varied from 2c declined
to 5c advance.
Wheat values began lo break as soon
as the opening figures were posted
showing that the season's high price
record had again been outdone.
It was said that large offerings to
Europe overnight had not been accept
ed, and that Italy would need only 40,
000,000 bushels of wheat this season
as agnlnst ll'')00,000 bushels Import
ed last season. ,
Some eastern buying on the declines
caused one decided rally, but the effect
was more than counterbalanced later
as a result of arrangements to start
trading In the September delivery here
Corn and oats were depressed by a
renewal of large receipts of corn. The
arrivals of corn were estimated to total
Provisions averaged a little lower in
sympathy with grain and hogs.
