LOSSES AND CAINS FEATURE
THE STOCK MARKET TO-DAY
War Specialties Fall Back Again at the
Outset of Trading, Then Rising and
Declining Alternately Trading
Was Relatively Light
By Aisociatcd Press.
New York, May 4.—Wall Street.—
War specialties fell-back again at the
outset of to-day's trading, pressed steel
car losing 6 1-2 poiuts and the declines
oi 1 to almost 2 points in General
Electric, American Locomotive, Bald
win and National Load. U. S. Steel
[ yielded half a point on heavy offerings.
Standard railways were mostly lower
while minor stocks of that class made
slight gains. 'Coppers were variable.
There were partial recoveries before
the end of the first half hour.
The market repeated its course of
the previous session, rising and de
clining alternately, with indications of
further selling at every favorable op
portunity. Foreign offerings were not a
factor, although Steel anjJ Coppers
were sold tor European interests in
moderate Amounts. Trading was rela
tively light, becoming increasingly dull
towards midday, when representatives
shares showed genernl gains. Indus
trials and the miscellaneous group pre
sented a mixture of losses and gains,
motor issues being especially strong.
Bonds were irregular.

Mervin H. Bogner, Who Seeks Divorce,
Says Wife Can Hire Counsel
Mervin H. Bognes, of Steelton, vig
orously object's to paying for the serv
ices of the attorney who is to defend
his wife, Nellie, in the divorce suit he
h)as lodged against her and so stated
in papers his counsel tiled in court this
morning. The wife denies the charge
that she deserted wilfully and
maliciously and without reasonable
cause and haSobtained * rule to show
.cause why 'he should not pay her law
yer who will fight the charge.
The Bogners were married in New
Cumberland, on December 22, 1900,
and thev seperated on M'.trch 22,
1901, tlie date on which Bogner con
tends he was deserted. They lived to
gether but three months. Mrs. Bogner
claims she always was and even now
fs willing to live with her husband and
she further asserts that she was obliged
to depart from him because of the
treatment accorded her bv Bogner s
sister, with whom the couple lived.
Bogner claims that his wife is
financially able to employ counsel to
prepare her case. He declares that he
has paid his wife $1,500 since the
separation. This money was paid in in
stallments of $8 a month under a
court maintenance order.
