',ic higher, May corn ic higher and onu
Vc lip. Provisions were easier, the January
products closing at from 17',o to Zi'Vf lower.
Lower rabies and a b tinsh government
report caused an easier feeling In wheat
at the opening and there was considerable
hort selling early. The small receipts and
a (food CBBh demand brought out g neral
buying by commission houaes, part of
which waa reported to be for the leading
long. Offerings were rather limited through
out the dav and a strong tone prevailed,
the close, being; at the high point for De
cember, with a gain of )c at 75'Ac May
opened a shade to rac lower at 7ii
7e, and advanced steadily up to Tic.
Thi. rinse vai iii4e htither at 77'vif7iNc.

Corn was moderately active throughout
the entire day, the feature being renewed
covering by a prominent short who covered

heavy at any time and with a good demand
a strong tone was manifest d. although
considerable liquidation prevented any ma
terial advance In May, which closed c
higher at 44H444'So. but December showed
a gain of c. closing at 57'c. Cables wero
lower, but the prospects of unfavorable
weather overcame the bearish Influence of
the foreign news. Local receipts were 212
cars, with four of contract grade.
There was a fair trade In oats, and after
a little depression at the start, the market
ruled firm, the strength In corn being the
main factor. Commission houses were good
buvers and there waa but little for sale,
which was partly responsible for the better
tone to the situation. May closed V(i
higher at 33Vxfe 3c, after selling between
Xi e and 33Va&J. Local receipt were 100
v.eakness In the hog market caused

Haver I alnadlna; Regardless of Price
Leads to Violent Decline.
NEW YORK. Dec. 11 The stock market
had a demorallred appearance at times
today, when an eager unloading of securi
ties was In provress wlCmui regard to
prices. The volume of dealings rote to
over l.OKM"".! shares, or about double thosa
of yesterday, which were again more than
double those the day before. The throwing
upon the market of this greatly augmented
the volume of liquidation met and with poor
adsorption and violent declines were tne
result. There were points in the market
where belter resistance was shown than
In others, notably among the Pennsylvania
group, HeHdlng, Amalgamated and Sugar.
The last named closed the cay with 011 ac
tual net gain of a small fraction. On the
other hand the Rock Islands, the I'nlted
States Steelers and Pacitlca generally
proved easily vulnerable. The extreme de
cline In Rock Islimd common was 41 nud
In the preterred 4;4. The final prices were
respectively 4 and I points higher than the
lowest. Steel Irwt 3 pi Ints and the pre;errej
24. and their tinal prices were only a trac
tion better than the low points. The un
supported condition of these stocks had a
strong rentlmental effect on the whole mar
ket. The Venezuelan situation exerted
only a sentimental Influence. The real mo
tive lor the precipitate selling was the
growing conviction that a further exten
sive loan contraction will be necessary to
meet the requirements for money between
now and the first of the year. There was
more or less forced liquidation from the
refusal of lenders to extend maturing
loans, but many holders were moved by ap
prehension that the same conditions would
shortly become effective In their own case,
so thut they threw over lurge holdings.
There were some of the largest lenders In
the street, who withheld their funds from
the time loan market, with the avowed In
tention of waiting for higher rates on time
loans, i nls process servea to keep some
supply in the loan market, as high aa 9
per cent waa paid, however, for call loans.
Time loans for fhort periods were prac
tically unobtainable and rates were very
tlim for the lonaer period). The rates
quoted were purely nominal and all sorts of
devices were resorted to to increase tne ac
tual rate of return over the nominal rate.
such as commissions nnd Implied agree
ment on the nart of the borrower to with
draw only a certain portion of the account
loan. Time loans maturing at tins time
were the immediate cause of the emDar-
ruiRment of holders of Stocks. KUltlorS
were current of the liquidation of a loan of
several millions to a single bank, which
necessitated heavy realizing on collateral.
A curious feature of tne inciaeni was inai
. ni co In feral included nany nunarea
snares of the stock of the bank calling the
loan, which were sold In tne open market.
Money brokers reported that there was not
mnfti fniiinv in nf monpv nlaced on call.
and they aleo reported that where maturing
time loans to the local nanks naa to oe
paid off they were unable to secure a con
vention for norrowers irom interior utmim.
TIsr rate paid In such ciises was consider
ably above tne nominal rate, wnere me
local banks are lending at all It Is simply
to supply the urgent neede of their regular
customers for business purposes.
It was expected that more gold would be
sent to South America. The retention of
the 4 per cent discount by the Bank of
England is believed to be an indication of
confidence that the South American de
mands on London for gold can be diverted
to New York.
All rumors of relief measures by the
Treasury department met with denials. To
day's extreme declines reached from 1 to I
points quite generally and in some of the
less active specialties ran from 4 to 12. The
tone at the close was feverish and unset
tled, but quite materially above the lowest.
Bonds were weak In eympathy 'Rn
stocks. Total sales, par value, $4,340,000
United States 3s and 4s, coupon, declined
4 on the last call.

CATTLE There was another heavy run
of cattle here today, which makes the sup
ply ior tne week to oate consiaeraDiy in
excess of the same days of last week and
as compared with the same days of last
year there Is an enormous Increase, as will
be seen irom tne table above, other mar
kets have also been receiving much more
stock than usual at this season of the
year, ao that prices have been going down
ward at a rapia rate.
The beef steer market opened very slow
this morning and unevenly lower. Sellers
differ somewhat as to the amount of the
decline for the week, owing to the un
evenness of the prices paid, but as a gen
eral thing prices have declined fully 25c
and in some cases 35c. The break effects
all kinds, though perhaps the commoner
grades have suffered more than the cattle
good enough to sell from $5.00 up.
The cow market was also slow and lower
again today. As compared with the close
of last week the decline may be put at
fully 35ff40e. As Is generally the case when
prices have oeen going aown as rapicny as
tney nave tnis wees., mere is a goou oeui
of unevenness, ao that some sales look
much better than others. It was very
late In the day before the I c of the
offerings was diaposed of.
Bulls nave taken a arop 01 uiu.oc aunng
the week, but veal calves have held right
close to steady.
The stocker ana reeaer maraei was a
little lower today also. Up to today the
market held ud In Kood shape and the de
cline this morning was confined largely
to the less desirable grades, etrictty gooa
feeders have been scarce, so that they are
not much over a dime lower, but common
stuff and lightweights in particular have
been hard to sell at any price.
Western range oeci steers were in ngnt
onnlv. but sold a little lower In sympathy
with the break on cornfeds. Range cows
may be quoted ikKBtoc lower ror tne weea
and stockers and feeders are fully WW loc
lower and In some cases more. Representa
tive sales:

HOtiS Receipts of hoes were not oulie
as heavy today as they were yesterday, as
will be seen from the table given above.
The market waa lower at all points and the
decline here at the opening amounted to
tuxt about a ni( krl. Packers started in
Vididnc around $r7', for the general run
of hogs, with the heavier grade selling
at $6 in, snd us high as M 15 was paid for
a prime load wt-itihliig A pounds. By
the time about thirty loads naa cnsngel
hands the market weakened a little and
then buvers wanted to get tnelr droves at

prices, so that for a time little business
was transacted. Packers, though, finally

SHEEP-There was a
sheep here this mornlnar
but psckera re-
celved messages from Chlcsgo quoting ths
market there considerably lower, so that
they were naturally a little bearish here.
At the same tlmca they nil had to have
fresh supplies and the limited offerings
prevented much of a break In prices. The
market could probably best be described by
calling It steady to a shade lower. The
weakness In most cases was confined to
the less desirable grades.
I .am ha were scarce and there was very
nine cnange in prices, oood lambs, in
particular were In light supply.
ine reeaer market did not show any
change. The demand was not heavy, hut
supplies of good stuff were limited, so that
vanrcn remained just about steady.

market oncned firm at an advance of 2'utl
points and ruled steadily upward on active
covering and broadened Investment denritul
on continued ngnter receipts ana otnr
bullish features. The demand was the
most active since the bureau report of De
cember 3 and wss largely stimulated hy
evidences of stronger spot markets In th
south and abroad. The IJverpool m:irket
advanced 4 points on spot cotton and :(ii
Ut on the future market. Buying was fur
ther Increased by large clearances ami
claims that heavv frelcht engtgenicnts
forecasted large outward movement for th"
remainder of the month. All cl:ises of
buyers boucht In a large way in tne local
market, which, however, was led much of
the time by New Orleans, where May cot
ton was selling at 8.34c, while 8.31c was the
price here. New Orleans buying orders
were a large factor In the activity here.
The nrivance In nrlces was in the face of
unsettled Wall street conditions, on account
of which there was a good deal ot selling
bv Wall street parties who held cotton and
wished to realize in order to take care of
their .ecurlty Interests. But for this phase
of the situation the advance In the local
cotton market would have been greater, as
the buvlng was very heavy throughout the
session. Total sales reported 50u.(i(i bales
and the market was finally firmer at a net
advance of 3til7 points.

BOSTON, Dee. " 11. WOOL There Is n
very strong and active market for all
grades of wool, with a decided Improve
ment in. the price situation. Dealers re
port an Increased business, with an ad
vance on many kinds of wool of Mile per
pound. Fine wools have been especially In
demand. While In some cases the ndvanco
Is perhaps more In the asking price than
in actual sales, yet there can he no doubt
that there Is really a high level of values,
with sales being made at substantially a
