Speculative selling of stocks increased today, and while the movement was irregular the prevailing tenc'ency was downward.

LANCASTER TOBACCO Average For 1914 Will be Largely De creased, Say Growers LANCASTER, April 8. A considerable amount of 191S tobacco was bought the past week at all sorts of prices, ranging from 4 to 10 cents. The extensive out of town buyers are not now in the field and many of the local packers have not yet been in the market, and will not be in unless they can get rid of some of their old grades. March showed an improvement in cigar output over February, but when analyzed there was practically no increase. There were several less working days in February than March.

Extensive cigar manufacturers report business as not brisk and at several of them they are piling r.p goods in the hope of an improved business in the near future. The dullness in the cigar manufacturing end of the tobacco industry had its effect on the business of the packers. They report very few customers, and sales in small amounts. There will be a largely decreased acreage of tobacco in 1914, compared with 191,1. If the tobacco fanners give proper attention to what they do cultivate better prices will be the result.
