Clews.) Wall .Street, New York, July D.—Tho financial markets, have shown little disposition toward any new trend. First.-of ihemonlh dls-bursemouts. atiftj readjustments of funds, Government withdrawals from banks, continued I uncertainty regarding European prospects, and reluctance on. the part of tho public to make commitments have in some decree offset tho effect of I good crop conditions, excellent freight traffic- and larger domestic demand. The Basis of Business. The essential element in the pres-! ent situation is tho actual position of business. As to tills, there have) been several indications of unusual interest. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York In an extensive survey of general prospects has shown "production and shipment ui goods in heavy volume'—"active distribution of commodities" — a "money market quiet and relatively easy"- — and declines "in the loans of reporting member banks." Another fact of Biirnl- ficanco has been a further rexessiou of I'js points in the general level of wholesale prices of commodities during June. The fact that bank credit demands are amply provided for is well illustrated by the. lessened activity in the turnover of bank deposit credit in New York and other centers. This shows,-that there la no good reason to expect, largo new demands on Ihe banks for the immediate moment tor use in furtherance of commercial requirements. Altogether it seems clear that tho commercial and business world is well financed aud is amply provided with funds, oven without resort to the banks, whilo output is well sustained in most lines and demand unusually cood. In Agriculture the fiirures both of the Government and of private estimators show conditions of about averasto character, with every reason, lo expect a satisfactory yield at fairly good price;). Readjustment of Values. In theye uircitmstauces prices of securities should show stability instead of the weakness tivat has lately prevailed. Thoy have evidently been out of line with trade conditions. This bus been due to doubt as to- leRisla- tive and other prospective conditions. Revival of Uio bonu.s agitation In an aggravated form, positive slaiements ou the part of federal 'legislators that they will not countenance- efforts to reduce taxation, despite a substantial surplus at the end of the fiscal year cut June 30, and intimations even In unusually conaervative quarters that "iome" reduction of railroad rates can he endured by the lines have been the unfavorable features of the outlook. Tho public clearly wants to" know more about these lonir-ranjre elements $7.35; packing sows mostly $ti .2r, (l.4i); desirable weighty pigs $*;.f,0J 7.00;' heavy weight hogs $»1.63 ft 7.5,5 medium S&OOtfT.gS; light $6.75«7.t:>, ... light Hfrhts $8.75ft 7.00; packing ROIVI j lhe Present levels being in most cases smooth $6.00(317.50; rougi $5.60 ; <j 0.10; i f r ? low as 7Ju"Ked either by probable j bllllnB pigs 1«.25«7.10.

As pointed out in recent advices, merit ha3 been entirely Ignored, tho rush to sell stocks having boen duo to a state ot nervousness tor which It is hard to account. Certain It is there was nothing in the trado situation to Justify th» gloomy talk which has recently been going the rounds. The very heavy car loading, allowing quite conclusively that, there has been no particular abatement In trado activity, and while there is some Jiill, which is not unusual nt this season of the year, indications are not lacking that, business in all channels will be sufficient to keep practically everybody employed for a long time to come. One could not ask for ttioro wero it not for the excessive wage demands of labor coupled with exacting working conditions which naturally handicap new construction enterprises. On tho other band, it it) obvious that these demands could not be met if the country at largo were not In a highly prosper ous condition. With respect to tho sharo list, there is good reason for believing that large, financial Interests have been quietly picking up stocks as they have been thrown overboard, •which has reduced the floating supply,' with tho effect that the market is now resting on a sounder foundation. The result Is that sentiment, which, as is well known, has a powerful influence on values, has undergone a change for tho better. This does not necessarily mean, how ever, that the. upward movement will continue without reactions as the buying power Is still insufficient to readily absorb stocks when they aro pressed for sale. Tho most that can bo hoped for, therefore, In the Immediate; future is that the market will present a moro two-sided appearance; hut even this will bo a distinct improvement as compared with conditions which ruled a week ago, when prices were diplng without interruption to new lows. Picking up stocks hereafter when offerot^ai concessions ought to be worth flBtno. Tough Luck.

Foreign Trade Problems. Foreign trade problems continue an important factor affecting domestic business and financial conditions. A series of four successive months with unfavorable merchandise balances leaves us at the eiul o fthe half year with a balance of imports over cxporta not less probably than $lbO,OWI,000 and possibly $30,000,000 more than that. This la at the rale of $45,000,000 to $500,000,000 per annum should conditions obtaining for four months past be maintained. For the past half year foreign financing .here hua amounted to about $185,000,000, while foreigners have Bent ua something like $100,000,000 of specie. Due to the reversal ot the merchandise balance, j the sharp decline in the amount of j securities sold here by foreign countries has not preventod them from maintaining a balance here about equal to that of last year. Some current statistics accordingly indicate the existence of a balance of about $450,000,000 in ravor of foreign 'countries on the books of our banka. At present our merchandise exports may be figured at about 20 per cent below normal level, while imporla are about 25 per cent above that level. Thin con. dition of affairs is partly responsible for the reaction in wholesale prices ot commodities and needs to bo rectified. Financial Conditions. It Is evident that the financial f markets will not lack Banking and 'credit support during the current season. Recession In brokers' loans continues. During' the past few days reports have shown that loans by the Reserve Bank of New York to member banks were at low, level for tho year. This situation coincides with tho existence of a gold reserve ot practically record amount, whilo unfavorable morchandis'o balances have not reduced our specie stock; It having, in fact, been materially enlarged In the meanwhile. So far as the financial situation is concerned, it has been free from tho effect of stringency, there being plenty ot funds at all times to meet requirements at reasonable rates.
