NEW tOtlK, March l.-Tlio strength
ihtwn In the slock market at the close
W on Balurdfty continued ftt tho openltiff to
day, although the volume bl business was
light. Fractional roIiis were, made in a
number of the leading Issues. Iluyers
showed some hesitation on account of tho
belief that Great Britain might announce
drastic action In the course of tho day
M, mt.ttl.r- nf itoolllllff food Blld Other
I: iupplles from Germany. On the whole,
however, tno leeiing in mo dumi mw
more cheerful. Sentiment was materially
Improved by the bellof that Congress
will soon adjourn nnd that there will ho
no extra session, After the early Btrength
there was a slight reaction at tho end
Of the nrst hour, but prices soon cumo
back to their high on nupporthig orders.
During tho afternoon tho market re
malhed strong. The announcement that
the British Government had proclaimed
nn embargo upon all commodities In
tended for Germany did not adversely af
fect tho market, as It had been generally
xpeoted in tho Blreet that action of this
sort would bo taken In retaliation for tho
placing by Germany of u war zone around
the British Isles.
A featuro of strength throughout tho
day was New Haven. Tho stock at ono
time was 254 above tho final on Saturday,
at 47?i. In tho later trading some of tho
advance win lost. The strength In tills Is
sue was thought to bo duo to tho enact
ment of n law In Massachusetts allowing
the company to ndvanco passenger rates.
General Chemical rose 10 points to 182.
The buying of General Chomlcat was
thought to be caused by the fact that tho
company will soon Issuo somo now stock
which will bo olTercd to stockholders at
par. Tho new iesuo has already 'n au
thorized, but tho amount which wlil bo
placed on tho market at this tlmo has not
been announced. The Street thought that
the buying today waB by romo ono who
wanted some of the new stock.
The most business was ilono In Beading,
Gtcel common and Copper, all of which
showed advances over tho ilnhl on Satur
day. Traders turned their attention to
tho wheat market at Chicago, wlfero tho
prices of nil grains wero lower on heavy
selling, caused by the success of tho
Allies in penetrating the Dardanelles,
Tho announcement of tho arrival of
$700,000 in gold from London furnished
something of a stimulus, as It took tho
Strcot completely by surprise Tills
caused some Urgent buying of stocks, both
for long and short account. The arrival
of this gold did not havo any strengthen
ing effect in the torolgn exchange market.
Demand cables wero lower, while marks
dropped to tho lowest point In hlBtory,
81$. Italian llres followed tho course of
marks and declined to 6.S5, also tho lowest
point they havo ever reached. The weak
ness was primarily caused by tho ab
aenco of demand.
As tho result, probably, of tho drop
In exchange rates thero wan n. rentir-
rence of foreign selling. Tho selling
from abroad, however, wns principally in
bonds, appearing on the tape as "Soliors
,10 flat." The fact that German ex
change touched a now low suggested
that a largo amount of this selling wns
for German account. The Issuos sold
were all high class and Included North
ern Pacific 4s and 39, Contral Pacific
first 4s, In which sales wero tho lnrgost,
and Southern Pacific bonds.
Tho ndvanco of 1 a ton on bars, plates
nnd shapes went into effect today.

CfltCACIO, Mnrch l.Prlcos of nil
nrnlna broke nhnrply nt tho opening of
tho Hoard of Trnde today, largely on no
count of the continued progress ot tho
nllled fleet penetrating tho Dardanelles.
Tho sharpest break was naturally In
wheat, because n largo supply of tho
Russian product, which Is being held In
readiness for shipment, would bo rushed
through tho Danlaiieltoil and placed on
tho market as soon as tho gatowny Is
opened. May wheat opened nt $1.61. oft
2)4 cents n bushel, while July showed
it loss of 2 cents, at $1.22. In tho later
trading the prices weakened further.
Helling wna heavy.
May closed nt $1.4'M, otf 6)4 cciiIb from
Saturday's Anal, while July ended 6)4
cents lower at $1.18)4. At the lowost
point of the day May wns nt $1.46 nnd
July nt $1.17)4, or 7)i and 7)i cento re
spectively, under tho llnni on Saturday,
Hxport sales of wheat on Saturdny
were unusual, iib high ns 1,000,000 bushels.
The weekly shipments of wheat from
North America amounted to 8.G13.000 bush
els, tho United Kingdom receiving 2,052,
000: tho continent, B,1G8,000, and non
Guropc, 703,000 bushels.
The foreign purchases of wheat lit Italy
are placed at 40,000,000 bushel), half ot
which hns already arrived. This will be
distributed where most needed at fair
prices, thus provisioning tho country un
til tho next crop.
With weather conditions fnvornblo In
Argentina, nhlpmonta from that quarter
nro expected to ossumo larger propor
tions than heretofore. Olllclal reports
from that country show a new corn crop
of 335,945,000 bushols and places the ox
pottoblc mirplus nt 201.000,000 bushels.
Cash Bales here wero 60,000 bushels of
export and the Seaboard reported 750,000
bushels for export. Tho Seaboard also re
ported thrco cargoes or oats for export
and a rumor wns current that a largo
nmount of corn hns been sold nt Chicago
no well as Eastern points for foreign ship
ment. Tho visible supply in tho United
Htntes decreased 2,073,000 bushels to a total
of 40,CS6,0O0 bushels compnred with 57,021,000
bushels a year ago. TIjo visible supply

Tho Interstate Commerco Commission
held today that mllllnK-ln-trnnsIt charges
of l'A cents per 100 pounds on local and
ex-luhe grain, t. o. b. from Buffalo, N. Y.,
Is not unreasonable. Tho ruling was on
the complaint ot various milling com

New York and Pprjnsylvanla. It was also
held that the application of through rates
on grain or by-products from origin to
destination on mlllcd-ln-trunslt grains
