NEW YORK. Jan. H.-The market was
a merely nominal affair today. Some of the
trnderV who sold short yesterday bought
to cover on the belief that thfre was no
warlike threat In the Vei.eiuelan situation
and that the labor cilspjte on the Cnlon
Pacific had a less serious aspect this morn
ing than was reported yesterday. There
was continued atsorptlon of Delaware A
Hudson, which Wat explained as being due
to reports of very large current earnings.
The extra dividend of one-half of 1 per
cent on Northern Pacltlc had not been fore
told, but it was without apparent effect
upon entlment. As Northern Securities
Is practically the sole owner of Northern
Pacllio shares and as the increase In the
Hei uritWs company s dividend already made
was presumably based npon the Northern
I'arliic evtra the episode was allowed to
(ass without a ripple In the stock mnr
kt Interest centered In the weekly bank
statement, and even more In the dav s
clearing house figures. The latter disclosed
that the balances to be settled between
clearing house Institutions for the day
were the largest In the history of the clear
li.g house, reaching a total of $24.i77.4!.
The heavy Individual debts snd credits of
a few of the largest banks In the associa
tion made It seem evident that some finan
cial transaction ot great magnitude was
carried throj",h today. The subtreasury
had a lirge credit balance, due to the pay
ment of a Central Pacific note due the gov
ernment. The large loan expansion for the
week was attributed to the Pennsylvania
lc an, which Is authoritatively stated to
hnve been nearly atn.nti.iam. It Is generally
believed that a considerable portion of the
loan was taken by foreigners and was thus
a factor In the easier tone of exchange
which developed during the week. The
re-deposit with the hanks by the railroad
company of the proceeds of the loan has
been responsible for the free supply of
funds which developed yesterday In' the
money market. The, ordinary speculator
In stocks flnda cause for hesitation about
operating In the evidence of such finan
cial requirements as was furnished by to
day's bank statement and clearing house
figures. The market sold off after the bank
statement and Jlosed dull but about steady.
I'nlted Staietl coupons have advanced 4
per cent as compared with the closing call
of last week.

CATTLE As Is generally the. case on a,
Saturday, there were not enough cattle
here today to make a market. The supply
for the week has been fairly liberal, but
still there Is a slight decrease as compared
with last week. The receipts for the month
of January, as will be seen from tha table
above, show a big Increase over last year
and also over all previous years. Other
markets have also had heavy supplies, so
that the general downward tendency of
prices Is not to be wondered at.
The beef steer market this week has been
In rather unsatisfactory condition. The
quality of the offerings was Inferior and
receipts were larger at all points than
packers needed. On Friday there was a
slightly better tone to the trade, but still
the week closed with prices 15'it25c lower
than the close of the previous week. The
bulk of the cattle now coming forward sell
from $1.00 to $4.50, with an occasional bunch
good enough to bring $5.00 or better, but
no finished cattle have been offered with
which to make a test of the market.
The cow trade has also suffered quite a
decline. As compared with the close of
last week. It Is fafe to quote the general
market a quarter lower, or 2fl(f30c lower.
The class of cows that have suffered the
most are those that have been selling
around $3.25 and $3.50, while the canners
went off the leasl. The bulk of the cows
sell from $2.50 to $3.50, with prime grades
selling up to $4.40.
As mentioned yesterday, the bull market
has be. 11 very unsatisfactory to the selling
Interests. The better grades In particular
have been hard sellers, and have brought
little more than the bologna bulls. It takes
a prime fat bull now to bring $3.50, while
the bulk sell from $2.25 to $3.25. Veal calves
have held Just itbout steady all the wee.
The week closed with the market on
stockers and feeders of good quality active
and strong. Dehorned cattle In particular
were ready sellers and brought considerably
more than the horned cattle of the same
quality. Cattle weighing from 800 to l.ooO
"pound's were in the greatest demand, but
light cattle of good quality also sold well,
but common stuff of all weights wiu neg
lected and hard to, sell at any price. The
bulk of the CHttle sell from $3.25 to $3. i5,
with prima rattle selling as high as $4 40.
HoGS Tnere. wa Just a fair Saturday a
run of hogs here today and the market
opened about steady with yesterday's closs,
or nearly a nickel lower than yesterday's
average. The market was not particularly,
brisk, but still, owing to the moderate
offeringe, practically everything was dis
posed of In good eeason. The bulk of the
medium weight hogs sold from $6 65 to $6.75.
The prime heavy hugs sold from t6 75 to
$6,824. The light stuff sold from $6.65 down.
The receipts of hogs for the week ahow
s.n increase over lust week amounting to
about head. For the month of Janu
ary there Is a decrease u compared with
the same month of last eur of about
nifmo bead. The market this week has
Teen In fairly good shMpe, although prices
have fluctuated quite rapidly back and
forth The week closes with a gain of
lust week. Representative sale:

fl ighty Factor in
Small Investors Throughout tho United States Join
Hands with the National Securities Co. of
St- Louis. Mo-, and Form a Oi
Kantio Combination'
The present rare will undoubted! v b"
known In history a- the "Financial Age.''
for never In the history of the world has
there been so much whaJ might be termed
concentration of capital as In this present
age. Formerly an Individual would make
an investment and win or lose by the inlaiht
of his own Individual capital, but by the
present system, thousands of Investors
tncrne themselves Into one company, there
by having the concentrated strength of the
entire capital. The Napoleon of this class
of Investment Is undoubtedly .1 I'lerpont
Morgan, who through keen business Judg
ment and by the confidence which he has
Inspired In the multi-mtlllonalre.M of our
country. Is able today to form billion-dollar
combinations. In the city of St. Iuils
is a firm known ns the .National Securities
l'o., whose standing in the Hnanclal world
Is of the highest nature. They ure today
doing for the small Investor who has from
toil up to Invest what J. I'lerpont .Morgan
Is doing for the mulM-iriilllonalres of our
country, and by fnrttitnii n gigantic com
bination, made up of thousands of investors
In every slate in the union. tJtey arc now
recogtiix 'd as a tnlaihty factor In tho tiniin
cial world. The general plan upon which
the National Securities Co. Is operated
does not materially differ from that em
ployed by the national tanas, that Is, the
National Securities Co., invi-et their money
that they receive from depositors in bonds,
stocks and other securities, but ;hn in
vestors In the National Securities Co. In
hteiid of occupying the relative position of
depositors in the national banks, partici
pate in the prollls of the National Securi
ties Co. and thereby occupy the same posi
tion in the National Securities Co. as the
a.toekholders do In Ihe national banks. The
national banks In at-ci-pMng your deposits
for a given time, pay from 11 per cent to 4
per cent Interest per annum and then take
your money mid reinvest It and the prollt
that Is made upon your money Ih divided
among the stockholders. The National Se
curities l'o. take your money and guarantee
6 per cent per month dividends, 72 per cent
CORN Exports of corn aro enormous, fivi'l;t block
age east practically raised, phipiiMMitN of corn the pant
week, the largest in months. Amount of corn at Chi
cago and other prominent points rapitlly deniinishing.
(.railing extremely poor. Market oversold, lloltlings
.ire largely in the hands of a powerful bull crowd ami
preparations are in order for an active bull campaign
shortly. SATURDAY RED LETTER goes into details
regarding the coming movement, the underlying condi
tions and the future selling price of corn.
WHEAT Further liquidation on wheat will come
early in the month when buying will pay big profits. I
am a believer in $2.00 wheat on the May delivery and I
have thousands of reasons to substantiate my position.
STOCKS If you are interested in Wall Street specu
lations or if you are long or short of securities in the
New York market you should consult the RED LETTER

that are to come in Wall Street. Send for SULLIVAN'S
