CHICAGO. March 6 W H EAT There his
Iw-en a weak wheat market, mainly caused
by liquidation. The news also lias been
bearish. The March Ohio crop made the
winter wheat condition 91, compared with
62 last year, and the crop was well roVFred
with snow. The Price Current was bearlHh,
showli.g the good condition maintained.
There was w.me fear the approaching crop
report would show a large farm reserve.
The weather Is favorable, plenty of mois
ture and no cold weather In sight. The
early feature was selling by the northwest,
said to be on the expectation of larger re
ceipts. Northwest cars were 297, against
2.1H last year. Primary receipts, iWl.tmo bu.,
against 410,00 Inst year; primary shipments,

lr. under Miy. Ix-al receipts. 16 cars,
with none contract. Estimates for Friday,
20 cars.
CORN Market acted Arm at the opening
on the rains through the corn belt. The
trade had In mind the approaching decision
by the warehouse commissioners In regard
to kiln-dried corn, and there was some
covering on the fear that it might be ex
cluded from delivery. The break of the day
was when It was announced there would be
no change In the rules. The trade was not
large. The provision crowd .vintlnjed tak
ing the July. There was some covering of
May and reselling of July. The wheat
weakness had Its effect. Iotal receipts, 2;:4
cars, with none contract; estimates for
Friday, 290 cars; prlmarv receipts, 67R.ioO
bu., against 329.m0 bu.; primary shipments,
446,000 bu., against 268,000; clearances, 432.000
bu. Cash murket was weak and the sea
board demand slow. Price Current sold
bad roads were keeping down the move
ment. OATS Market sympathized with the
break In the other grains and also felt the
heavy selling of July by Patten houses.
There was not much demand for May at
36c and the price easily declined to 34Sc,
the lowest price for this future since early
In January. Receipts. 125 cars, with 10
ptandard; estimates for tomorrow. 156 car;
clearances, 7,000 bu; local cash sales, 40,0.
PROVISIONS The whole provision list
advanced to a new high level today. On

to break the market to buy product
cheaper, as well as covering by shorts.

decline In grain. There were 24.000 hons.
Prices at the yardn, 6(?J'l0c higher. Esti
mates for tomorrow, 22,000; hogs In the west

SEW YORK STOCKS AND BONDS.
Ill-Defined Rnmora Embarrass Mar
ket, Which is Consequently Weak.
NEW YORK. March B.-There was an air
of mystery about the weakness of the stock
market today. Rumors of financial embar
rassment in the dry goods world were cir
culated, but nothing definite was an
nounced. The direction of the rumors
shifted several tlmea during the day, how
ever, which had the effect of diffusing tha
feeling of distrust and apprehension. This
vague feeling was the most effectual fac
tor In the day's weakness of stocks. But
the money needs developed by the situation
had their positive influence by the with
drawal of credits from the stock market In
the shape of calling of loans. The prevail
ing tightness of money leaves little re
source for replacing of loans that are
called. The consequence was a dribble of
forced liquidation. This was steady and
practically uninterrupted throughout the
day. The downward course of prices was
constant, but did not make wide Jumps in
the active stocks, the recession, on the con
trary, being by successive small fractions.
But the net results upon prices lor the day
were serious, reaching from 2 to 4 points
for most of the active Issues and over that
for some dormant stocks. A more notable
example of the latter was Wells-Fargo,
which sold 284 points lower than last
month's sale. The professional bears cov
ered their short contracts at different In
tervals during the day, with the effect of
checking the downward course, but the
rallies were slight and the market seemed
to have no stamina whatever. The last
covering movement of the day was no more
effective than the previous ones and the
Closing was active, with some of the lead
ing stocks at the lowest of the day. Even
the announcement of the extra dividend on
Manhattan and the advance In the yearly
rate from 6 to 7 per cent was only momen
tarily effective either on that stock or on
the market at large, the selling coming
from all quarters, including London, which
sold 40,000 or 50,000 shares In this market
during the day. The special wer.kness of
the transcontinental group led to a sup
position that fears were aroused by the an
nouncement of the Incorporation of a com
pany alleged to be under the Gould aus
pices for the construction or a new line to
tne racinc coast, -me neavy decrease an
nounced yesterday in January earnings of
Union Pad no was also assigned as an In
fluence. The Wabash labor dispute and
strike troubles on the Canadian Pacific
gave vitality to the fears of coming labor
troubles, which were Influences on the
market. The report of. the organization of
the structursl steel manufacturers to con
test the demands for a rise In wages in
creased the apprehension on this score. The
further break In cotton had a disturbing
sentimental effect on stocks and the calls
fcr additional margins In that mr.rket had
the effect of Increasing the 'pressure for
money. The rate for rail loans on the ex
change ran up to 6 per cent In the late
dealings. Time loans were practically un
changed, but there- was Increasing disin
clination to put out funds at present rates.
The subtreasury again took over $5oO..JO
from the market, bringing the loss to that
Institution since Friday over 5,0u0,0n0, but
the treasury report from Washington
showed a revenue deficit on the day's total
operations of 12,225,530, due to very heavy
disbursements. There was continued re
sort to foreign lenders or money, as Indi
cated by continued offerings of loan bills
In the foreign exchange market. A feature
oT the day was the further break In United
States Steel 6 per cent bonds when Issued
on the curb to below 89.
Bonds were weak In sympathy with
stocks. Total sales, par value, $2,606,000.
United States bonds were all unchanged on
the last call.

CATTLE There was a good supply of
cattle on hand this morning tor a Thursday,
and as a result packers tried to buy their
supplies a little lower. In some cases they
succeeded, and in others they did not. Sell
ers all wanted steady prices, so that trad
ing was not exactly brisk.
The beet steer market In most cases did
not show much change from yesterday.
The more desirable grades, and especially
the handy weights, sold without much
trouble at steady prices, but where the
cattle did not Just suit the buyers It was a
little hard to get what looked to be yes
terday's prices. The market as a whole,
though, was in very satisfactory condition
and a fairly early clearance was made.
The cow market was steady to a little
lower. Packers seemed to want the stuff,
but they were all trying to buy their sup
plies for less money than they paid yes
terday. They were bearish on all kinds,
the better grades of cornfeds as well as on
the canners and cutters. Some sales were
made that were undoubtedly steady, while
others were 6(6 10c lower.
Bulls were certainly no more than steady
this morning, but veal calves continued
In good demand at steady prices.
The demand lor stockers and feeders was
brisk again this morning, and the market
ruled active und atronger. Some of the more
desirable grades nolo at prices mat looaeu
quite a little r.'gher. The demand rom
the country this week has been tully equal
to the supply, so that speculators all
wanted more cattle this morning and There
were not enough good kinds to go around.

IKK19 There was a fair run of hogs here
tinlay but the market opened active and
generally a dime higher ih.m yesterday.
1 Hi kers all seemed In nave liberal orders,
so it was not long before the buik of the
orft rings Whs dispt sen of. l.ooi". heavy hos
sold I rum $7 15 to 7 20. and ss high as $7 ,10
was paid. The medium weights sold largely
from $7 10 to 7 .1 5. and the lighter loads Irom
$7.10 down. Th; close of the market was
hardly as good as the opening owing to
the fact that packers had their more urgent
orders tilled.
Today's advance carries the msrket to
the highest point of the year to date. Rep

Throughout the entire day operations wi im
extr. nicly feverish, the market being Strom
and weak hy turns as the bull and bear
clement alternated In control of the mar
ket. The opening llrmnees was bused nil
better Liverpool cables than expecttd.
Large buying orders were received from
the bouth and Liverpool, hut the cotton
thus purchased was soon on sale again, .i.
the market at about 11 o'clock showed slg.i.s
of weakness, yulck to recognl.e the sit.ii
Hon bear traders, led by Wall street,
pounded the market so energetically ti.nt
before mid-day May and July, the t .vo ao
tlvn positions, were down 23 points from
the best of the morning. Following th..
sensational break the market had a perln I
of Irregularity during which the excite
ment subsided somewhat, but at 1 o'clock
(he activity broke out afresh, hut this tlnu
with bulls, evidently reinforced wlih goo I
orders from the clique leaders In better con
trol of the situation. Finding themselves
heavily oversold alter the weakness mi.i
confronted with a return of unfavorable
weather advices from many parts of the
south room traders became nervous and
started a heavy covering movement, which
continued with unabated .vigor right up to
the close. At 3 o clock the bull contingent
was clearly master of the Immediate situa
tion and successfully absorbed during the
last hour everything the bears had to offer.
From the lowest morning prices the mar
ket rallied 19 points and closed very sternly
net 1 to 10 points higher. The bull leader
was on the exchange all day directing
operations in person and seemed confident
In his position.
