Review op the Markets, Shipping News and Real Estate Business. REYEIW OF MARKETS New York, April 10.?Interest In stock speculation to-day was on a diminished scale, tho dealings aggregating little over a half a million shares. Prices moved in an uncertain manner and a number of marked net losses resulted. There was a decline at the opening, in which the specialties particularly par? ticipated, a midday rally led by the Vanderbllts, and an afternoon decline in which the Grangers were prominent. The liquidation of Friday permitted a number of brokers to return borrowed money and call rates were generally easier, 6 to 7 per cent, prevailing the greater part of the day. Several mil? lion dollars of sterling loans were made and call money closed 3(?4 per cent. Foreign bankers apparently assumed that comparatively good prices were probable here for money for a more or less protracted period. These sterling loans were responsible for an easier tone In the Sterling Exchange market. The rocu...
