Foreign Sews of Bearish Nature Tends to
Lower Wlnat Prces.
Other Matters Affecting- Trade Are
Opening of Danube Savlaatlon,
Argentine's Fine llarvrstlna;
Weather and Rnailan Wheat.
CHICAGO, Jan. 1 Bearish foreign new",
as the main cause for lower price In
Wheat today and May closed 4c lower. Mty
corn wus off 4c, with oat down VdNc.
Way provlalona closed from 74c tu loi.-o
lower. Wheat ruled quiet anil lower, with
a Rood deal of long etuff on the market and
but little demand. Liverpool cable were
weak and northeaatern markets alfo were
easier. Northwest receipts were consider
ably In excess of those of the correspond
ing time last year. Advices from Argentine
reported favorable harvesting weather and
a report waa current that offerings of
wheat from Ruts I a were more liberal on
rumors of the speedy reopening of naviga
tion of the Danube. Offerings continued
very free during the entire session and the
market declined gradually, closing easy.
May opened 4c lower at 7t'c and sold be
tween JBVa'MsC and 764(?iT64c, closing 4c
lower at 7o4c. Clearances of wheat and
flour were equal to 712.0UO bushels. Pri
mary receipts were 955,000 bushels, against
434.000 a year ago. Minneapolis and Duluth
reported receipts of 87 cars, which with
local receipts oi 44 cars, none of contract
grade, made total receipts for the, three
pulnts of Sol cars, against 673 cars last wees,
and 866 cars a year ago.
The corn market was rather dull, but
firmness at the etart on unfavorable
weather throughout the west. Commission
houses and shorts were good buyers of
January and that month was neirly :t
cent higher at one time, and the strength
In the current month acted as a supporting
Influence to the May option. Large esti
mated receipts for tomorrow were a bear
factor, and when wheat commenced to go
down the corn market waa affected sym
pathetically and prices receded to a trifle
under Weonesday close. May closed 4e
lower at 424c, after ranging between 4?r
4270. an! 434c Ixcal receipts were 306
cars, with 4 of contract grade.
Oats were nulet and easy, the weakness
In wheat being the principal depressing
factor, although there -was considerable
liquidation hy Toenl longs throughout the
day. The shorts closed with a profit. The
close was easy, with May 4ft4c lower at
S34c. after selling between 34c and 3c.
Local receipts were 111 cars.
The chief feature In the provision market
was the marked gain In January pork,
caused by active covering by shorts, which
resulted In an advance of from 2.Vfj274o to
bixii .i24o at the opening, rales belnrt made
at 117.7518.01). The strength of this month
helped the entire list, the realizing by local
longs caused n break at. tne close was
easier, with January pork 3.Mi3.4c higher
at $17.85. May pork wus 74c lower at
$16.30, lard lower at inS124c lower at $9.40
.424 and ribs down 74c at JR.H'.tflS.S'i.
Estimated receipts for tomorrow: Wheat,
I'm cars; corn, 865 cars; oats, 330 care; hogs.

NEW YORK. Jan. 2.-The trading on the
Stock exchange started off with great ani
mation this morning and something like a
bulge In prlcea. Buyers of Tuesuay and
Wednesday took advantage of the rise to
secure their profits. Prices ran off under
this process and the market became dull.
The advance was renewed again at some
points, but the snap seemed to' be taken
out of the market and a tairly general sell
ing movement developed in the alternoon,
when chII money rates stiffened to lp J'er
cent. Reading was vlgoroosly advanced
to above C3 and rerved to steady prices, but
the selling was renewed bctore the clce,
wh:ch-was highly Inai'ilar. Sugar nn eff a
point below Weunesuay.
The opening cnll loan rate of 10 per cent
revealed a stiff demand for funds, but
caused no uneasiness. Other developments
pointed to a relax condition In the loan
market and the sterling exchange market
made a sharp break, with the cearatlon of
the demand for cubles to meet the year
end settlements In London, which was a
feature last week. The London market
showed Its. usual prompt response to the
turn of the year, and money nnd discounts
mnde added declines under the a'jundant
oflerlngB In the market. This was acceptei
as a hopeful Indication of a light demand
for the future trom that center upon New

currency movement, which rtins up to J
Wednesday night. indlcaUn that the banks
have gained upward of $3.:!o0,Ia)O on the reg
ular' express movement with the Interior, j
wnlle tne sumreasury nns uiaen irom ioe
banks 1, 425.000, this Indicating a net gain
of about $1,8(U,000 for the banks.
The week'e grain exports were disap
pointing, while the Imports of dry goods at
New York rose in value several hunared
thousand dollars over those of last week
and exceeded those of this week last year
,by over $fi-W,000, thus explaining tne large
customs collections of the week. The stif
tenlng of the call loan rate late In the day
Indicates that there will be the usual delay
In the return of funds to the channels of
the New York money market following a
disbursement period.
Today's statement of the Reading's earn
ings for November proved disappointing
and the late advance In thli stock was un
explained. Other statements of November
earnings showed gross Increases more than
wiped out by Increased operating expenses
Louisville & St. Paul, however, snowed
moderate net gains remaining. But these
s Locks were rather more affected by realis
ing than others. The announcement of tha
profit-sharing plan of the I'nited State
Steel Corporation caused a sharp rise In
the preferred stock. Amalgamated Copper
continued to advance, but reacted sharply.
Brooklva Transit was somewhat depressed
and affec'ted the other local tractions. Mis
souri Pacific se ling ex-dlvidend was notably
strong and helped the Southwesterly gen
erally. The early flrmnrsK In the bond
market cave way to an Irregular tone In
sympathy with stocks. Total sales, par
value, $3,300,014) I'nited States bonds were
all enhanced on the last call.

NEW YORK, Jan. 1 COTTON Tlie mar
ket opened strong at an advance of 3014
points, ruled very active, with prices stead
ily working upward, and closed firm at a
net rise of 11&-31 prints. The advance was
started by a strong attitude shown at
Liverpool during the holiday hour. Today's
cables showed a net rise of 8 points on spot
cotton and 4tj0 points on futures. Ac
cording to private cables the English ad
vance originated In the appearance of an
active demand from China and better Man
chester conditions. Superintendent King
makes the port receipts for the week
254.148 bales, against 301.851 last year, and
the amount brought Into sight for the
week 333.67 bales, against 381,227 last year,
which brings the amount brought into
sight, according to the New York Cotton
exchange figures, 6.1-37,5(1 bales, against
6.M25.738 last year, when the crop, according
to the Chronicle, was 10.7(11,000 bales. Shorts
who have been depending upon a Inrge
volume of receipts have been actively buy
ing to gover. while the public demand has
been further stimulated by strong spot
cotton markets throughout the LOtton belt,
thtse generally showing an advance of

NEW YORK. Jan. 8. The so-called
equality or factor plan In the sugar trade
will be dine away with by the American
Sugar Ketining company tomorrow and
national granulated will be quoted at 4. (Vic
ler pound net. thirty days, loss 1 per cent
for cash without rebate.
The plan has been adjusted by refiners
for years. By It the grocerp received pro
tection to the extent of 25c per l'A) pounds.
The clulm Is made that as the grojera
have not adhered to the terms they made
and failed to sell by the factor plan terms,
this step becomes necessary.
The refiners say that New England Is
the only section of the country which has
stood by the plan strictly, although the
grocers of New York and Pennsylvania
have followed cloeely. Hereafter all sales
will be on a net cash basis.

yesterday was a holiday, the receipts were
as large as could be expected. Packers took
hold with a little more life than tney ma
yesterday and the general tone to the mar
ket was considerably better.
The few cars of cornfed steers tnat were
offered changed hands In good season. The
better grades. If anything, sold a shade
stronger, but the common stuff and
warmed-up cattle could not be quoted any
more than steady. Buyers claim that these
warmed-up rattle do not kill out at all well
and for that reason they are afraid of
The cow market was quite brisk, espe
cially at the start, and the prices paid
looked a little stronser all around. !t was
only a comparatively short time before the
bulk or the early arrivals was disposed 01.
There was no special feature to the trade.
Hulls, veal calves and stag:! were all in
light supply and the market held Just
about steady with yesterday.
There were no new developments in tne
stocker and feeder market this morning.
There were only a few odd bunches In the
yards and, owing to the time of week, spec
ulators did not care for many. In fact sup
piles have been so light all the week that
It Is difficult to tell much about the true
condition of the market, but with mod
erate receipts the general Impression Is
that desirable grades will And a ready out
let at satisfactory prices. Representative

HOOR There was not a heavy supply of
hens here this morning and ss ckers
nil seemed to be In need of fresh supplies
the market opened quite active and strong
to a shade higher. In some cases the
better grades of butcher weights sold ss
much nn a nickel higher. The bulk of the
hogs sold from $6.V. to $6. 40, with the prime
loads selling from $6 40 to $S 45. The lighter
loads sold largely from $6.3" to 6 3o, but
the extreme lightweights sold from $6 30
down. About the mliidle of the fotvnuon
the marhet suddenly weakened and as sell
ers all wanted the morning prices the close
was not only weak, but very slow. All of
the advance of the morning was lost and In
some cases more. but. as hns been the
case of lste. It w ss mostly the lightweights
that were left until the last. Represents

SHEEP There wa a very light run of
sheep and lambs here thle morning and
as packers all hnd to have a few the
market on good stuff was active and fully
steady. Wet tern ewes sold as high at $3.00
and western sheep and yearlings brought
44.60 and some straight yearlings sold at
$4.65 Owing to the light supplies the mar
ket soon came to a close.
It was very evident this morning that
packers were anxious for good stuff, but
the commoner grades and half fat stuff
was not In such active demand.
There were not enough feeders on eale
to tell much about the market, but de
sirable grades would probably have sold
at about steady prices.
