Prices React Strongly and Close Below
Opening; Quotations.
NEW YORK, Dec. 19. Today's stock
market showed the natural effect of the
elimination yesterday of a large short In
terest and the consequent lack of an Im
portant sustaining influence. Yesterdav'e
rush of prices upward led to realizing. The
professional traders on the floor, appre
ciating this state of affairs, worked for a
reaction all day and were rewarded In the
latter part of the day. by a sharp break In
prices, which carried moet of the leaders
generally below last night. Some renewed
anxiety was felt over the Venezuelan situa
tion, owing to the provisional nature of the
reply from Great Britain and Germany to
the proposition for arbitration. The fore
cast of the weekly bank statement did not
show as good a showing as was counted
upon In the middle of the week, and there
WHd some selll.ig. due to disappointment on
that score. London also turned seller to
day, reversing the position of yesterday.
Most of this selling, however, was purely
arbitrage business, the advance here going
ahead of London and allowing opportunity
to cover eules here by buying In London.
Published reports of a heavy flotation of
railroad bonds and of the Vanderbllt sys
tem In London attracted some attention
this morning and contributed to a sharp
rise In New York Central. This develop
ment promised such Important res u I to In
the exchange situation that It was accepted
with avlllty by bullish traders. Unfor
tunately the rumor met with denials from
authoritative quarters, and this helped to
turn the market downward. 8t. Paul was a
conspicuous center of strength, with con
tinued rumors of an early Issue of the new
stock authorized. The advance was ac
companied by some evidence of manipula
tion and the gain was almost entirely
wiped out. The continued eager demand
for anthracite sustained the coalers. Great
Northern preferred roae sharply without
explanation. The sharp advance of copper
in London helped Amalgamated Copper.
These special points of strength served to
sustain the market during the early part
of the day In face of the realising, which
was In evidence from the start and most
notably so 1n those stocks which have led
the week's advance. Southern Pacific. Mis
souri Pacific, Sugar, Manhattan and Ixniis
vllle & Nashville were all sufferers on this
score, i here was some check to the sell
ing before the close, whlcn was firm. The
fact that the loss of the hanks to the sub
treasury this week Is $4,315,000 less than It
was last week, while Interior exchange on
New York has ruled nt high rates, gave
rise to hopes of a large recuperation this
week In the cash reserve of the banks, but
It seems that the regular Interior move
ment has been sufficient to offset this
largely decreased drain to the subtreasnry.
Consequently a small net loes of less than
$100,000 Is Indicated for the week. This did
rot Include today's transfer of $350,000 to
New Orleans, which Is supposed to bo duo
to the large speculation In cotton at that
point. The news of this transfer was a
factor In brer.klng the market today. The
report of the weekly exnorts of grain was
also a disappointment, the outgo of wheat
being more than 1.030,000 bushels lets than
In this week a year ago. and the growth in
the corn exports proving but moderate.
Sterling exchange however, made a fur
ther decline today, making the time loan
market show the effect of arrowing sup
plier, the rate for short periods falling to 6
per cent flat, with no additional exaction
for commission.
The bond market was better sustalred
than stocks. rrflecMng some lnvs'ment de
mand in anticipation of the January cou
nore. Totnl sales, par value. 53.950.OO.
United States bonds were all unchanged on
the lust rill.

CATTLE Receipts of cattle were again
quite liberal at nearly all points and the
general tendency of prices continued down
ward. The market here was slow In open
ing, and when buyers finally did start out
It was very evident that they were not
fiartlcularly anxious for fresh supplies un
ess they could get them for less money.
There were about 16 cars of cornfed
steers Included In the receipts, and the
quality was rather common on the whole.
Buyers were generally bidding a little
lower than yesterday, so that the prices
paid were certainly no better than at the
close of last week, and In some cases they
looked lower.
A large proportion of the recelpta this
morning consisted of cows and heifers, so
that packers had a good opportunity to
pound the market, and they were not slow
about making the moat of It. As compared
with yesterday the bulk of the stuff sold
easily a dime lower, but the market was
rather uneven owing to the rapid fluctua
tions that have been taking place this
week, and for that reason some sales looked
considerably better than others. The gen
eral market, though, was safely a dime
lower than yesterday.
Bulls, veal calves and stags also eased
off a little. Choice veals, though, held
right close to steady.
There were only just a few stockers and
feeders In the yards, and very few or them
were what could be called good. Specu
lators claimed they were willing to pay
fully steady prices for good stuff, but that
there was no demand from the country for
the common stuff. As a result sellers found
It a difficult proposition to dispose of that
class Tt stock at any price. Representative

SHEEP There was not a heavy supply
of sheep am lambs on sale this morning,
but prices took quite a tumble. Packers)
claim they have been paying too hlsh prices
here for some time, an compared with other
markets, and that thev are now going to
get this market down In line with others.
As compared with yesterday afternoon the
market Is fully IOiSMSc lower, or. as com
pared with yesterdav morning, the decline
amounts to fullv lf.3'2fo and In some cases
sales were made that looked even worse
than that. The least decline was on strictly
choice nstlvcs that packers could use for
their Christmas trade. Owing to this sud
den tumble In prices trading was naturally
rather slow and it was late before a clear
ance was made.
The stocker and feeder market continued
hoiit steady. Supplies were light, ao that.
W'hlle the demand was also limited, prices
showed very little change.
