CHICAGO, Sept. . Clear weather in the
northwest was the chief reasons for a
somewhat easy tone in the wheat market
hue today. At the nose wheat for De-
ember delivery was off c. Corn is off
ic. cuts are practically unchanged. Pro
Islons are a shade lower to 7al"c higher.
The wneat market oncned easier, with
December off a ahade to gc. Dry
weather throughout Minnesota and the Da
kolas was tha main cause of the Initial de
clines. As a result of Improved weather
conditions it was claimed that arrivals of
new wheat at Minneapolis on Wednesday
would show an -enormous Increase, t'oin
mlssion houses later became quite active
purchasers. In consequence the market for
time showed considerable firmness. De
cember advanced to 83c. The principal
source of strength lay In large export bus
iness reported at the seaboard. Anotner
bullish influence was continued demand
from millers for cash wheat. The market
soon yielded to persistent offerings from
pit traders, prices selling back to about the
opening level. The Michigan crop report
waa a bearish factor In the reaction. The
wheat yield of that state Is estimated at
19,(j,noo bushels, as against S.OnO.tmo bushels
ust year. The market closed easy, with
December at 82c. Clearances of wheat
and flour were equal to 335 000 bushels. Pri
mary receipts were 13,C) bushels, com
pared with 918.000 bushels a year ao. Min
neapolis. Duluth and Chicago reported re
ceipts of fH cars, against 469 cars last
week and 332 cars a year ago.
Sentiment In the corn pit was bearish as
result largely of the excellent weather
for the maturing of the crop. Trading was
very quiet. At the close prices were at the
lowest point of the day. December opened
unchancert to V4c lower at 43'il43 c. sold
off to 43c and closed at the bottom. Ixical
receipts were 459 cars, with 206 cars of con
A liberal Increase In local receipts caused
some weakness in the oats market. Mod
erate purchases of May by a prominent
commission house prevented any material
decline In prices. December opened HvSc

Decrease In Loan a for the Week
Over Thirty Millions, Largest
ia History of the
NEW YORK, Bept. 9 The restored con
fidence over the money market, which
caused the. rally in stocks, was somewhat
impaired again when trading in stocks
was resumed today. An active bear party
put out short lines freely in various quar
ters of the market. There was some cover
ing from this source after the bank state
ment appeared, but prlcea eased off again
before the closing, as the radical changes
In the various items of the bank stste
ment were not liked. The bank statement
In fact, showed a much heavier loss of
cash than the most liberal estimates of
the preliminary computations The high
est of these had run to 8S.5oO,nno when the
decrease shown by the bank statements
run to nearly lll.ooo.ooo. In order to ef
fect the necessary reduction in the de-
fioslt Item to keep pace with this heavy
uss of cash and conserve the surplus,
the clearing house banks had marked down
the average of the loan Item for the week
no less than 830,227. OoO. The decline In de
posits thus effected amounts for the week
to 841,166.100. These changes are far In ex
cess of the reductions made in any prevl
oua week in the history of the clearing
house, and are the more notable as they
Include operations for only seven bank
ing days. The largest previous loan re
duction for a week was less than S25."00.ftX),
and this occurred for the week following
the Stock exchange panic in May, Idol.
The large reduction in reserve require
ments caused by the cutting down of de
posits restricted the Inroad upon the sur
plus to $'167,525 as compared with last week.
That Item now stands at 84.831.3.'i0, which
Is the lowest figure it has touched alnce
November, 1908. No one supposes that
there has been any such drastic contrac
tion of credits during the past week as
the reduction of loans by the banks would
The liquidation In the stock market has
been moderate compared with previous pe
riods of active liquidation and the fluctua
tions in the money rate have indicated no
such urgency as would be caused by such
a withdrawal of credits. It Is to be taken
for granted, therefore, that a large shift
ing of loans has occurred from the banks
to other Institutions. The trust companies
alone have taken over large loans during
the week. The break in foreign exchange
has been due to the borrowing of funds
In foreign markets It Is reported also
that some western Institutions have placed
some large loans In New York this week,
ana tne upward course or New York .ex
change at Chicago bears out this supposi
tion. The comparative tranquility of the
call money market Is supposed to be due
to a large shifting of stock market bor
rowing from call loans In the time loans.

and the entile industrial outlook Is favor-

which nearly all of the financiers predicted
and confidently expected, has failed. Wages
I are high, crops are promising, the output
! of pig Iron has reached recotd figures, the
, population of the country Is continuing to
increase, the earnings of railways are satis
factory and the general health of the coun
try Is In superb condition, yet the stock
market Is tumbling.
It can only be attributed essentially to
one reason stocks have reached very nigh
figures, and the Industry and progress of
the country has been discounted by specu
lators. Tne fact Is. under present prices
Wall street has little or no attraction for
the Investor. It at once becomes evident
that when an Investor can earn as much
money by allowing his money to remalrr
on deposit at a savings bank aa he can by
Investing In Wall street values the com
parative safety of the two will opernte in
lavur of the savings bank.
Prices are ut a very high level, and al
though the chronic bull Is still predicting
high prices, I am Inclined to think that
after a temporary reaction for lilt; '1 figures
the market will react to a lower plain. As
a general thing hull movements of a radical
character do not take place unless they
start from very low niarke's The moneT
situation, more thsn anv thing else, has
been responsible for recent breaks.
n Thursday call rates advanced In New
York to 3 Advances were also made In
tendon and Parle In banking circles the
point Is advanced that although Hie banks
are losing cash to the sihtreasury and
the interior the end of the week ban
statement will be favorably reinforced by
the reduction of loana wl.lch will follow
the recent heavy liquidation.
Estimates made on Thursday show that
the loan contraction this week will totnl
over lavw fliHi. On top of the present dis
turbed condition of affairs comes the
trouble at Toklo. Another disturbing sign
Is the keen competition among railways.
The reduction by the tlrent Northern In
rates for hauling grain will act seriously
upon the plans of a number of competitive
roads which had planned on prospective
dividends on the profits created from haul
ing this grain, which profit were speedily
wiped out by the reduction of rates by the
Oould. who haa been busy pushing Ms
sstem to the Pacific, is another disturbing
factor. A sword suspended by a hair la
hanging over the neck of the Steel trust by
the threatened building of Independent
steel plants. Those who have carefully
watched the markets Insist that the Stand
ard Oil Triple have been eellers, but It is by
no means a certainty at this time. Among
those prominently mentioned as operating
on the short side of the market Is the
Qntrs crowd. The west has len playing;
the short side and the east the long side.
Reading has shown a tendency to react.
Few people venture an opinion aa to what
Is going on In Erie, but It is being verv
strongly manipulated and had best be
watched verv carefully when traded In.
The campaign of the press, ljwson's con
tinuous harangue to the public and the
tennv public exposures are unquestionably
afToctlng the present condition of affaire.
The big operators made a tremendous at
tempt to get the public Into the market,
but. although a rising market was created
for them, they declined to accept the offer.
The public Is not In the market today and
prices will decline. There innv be tem
porary reactions, but on the whole It la
generally felt that prices will reach lower

CAl'iLt-As usual on tNc last uuy of tne

This has been a week ot large receipts,

head In excess of tne record lor tne cor
responding week a year ago. While the
big end of the receipts has consisted ol
western rangers as usual at this season,
there bus been quite a sprlnallng of cauio
from the feed lots and pastures of Uie corn
The market on beef steers has been in
very satisfactory condition all the week.
Coin fed steers of desirable quality have
been quoted as at least steady every day
tins week and occasionally strong. Good
weU-flnlsned loads have sold up to $6.90.
While range steers were quoted tt little
slow and weak one day the market was
stronger again, and at the close of the
week it would not be an easy matter 10

HOGS Today's trade on hogs was a good
deal like yesterday a market, tnat is 11
opened up a little better, wilh prospects
for a hlgner market and then turned out a
disappointment. Ae was the case yesterday
morning buyers picked out the light loads
paying prices that looked a lime higher
but tne trade was not active and It waa
slow work unloading. After the belter loads
were disposed of toe niaiket slowed down
nnd became verv dull and weak on heavy
packing huge. AS a whole the market did
not show much change, the hogs selling in
about the same notches as yesterday.
The hog market has been decidedly un
satisfactory this week and still the cnaugu
In prices has been very small. On Tuesday
and Wednesday the market was quoted
generally 6c lower for each day and every
other day of the week It was Blow and
easier. In fact dullness has been tne chief
fsalura of the market for some days back
and silll at the close of the week prices are
on an average, only about 10c lower than
they were at the close of last week. Heavy
packing hogs have been the hardest to sell
and have been neglected 10 such an extent
on some days that It was almost Impossible
for holders to unload iuie arrivals si wie
yards have Deen especially iimu 10 sen
the market was closed dull and easier al
most every day and anything arriving late
was almost certain to sell lower than the

eye. After twenty-four hours of steady
rain the sheep arrived thoroughly wet and
in no shape to sell, so that the market
was the duilevt and deadest that It ha
been at this point in a long time, In ad
dition to being lower. On Thursday and
Friday values remained Just about steady
at the decline. Now, at the close of the
week, sheep are all of 25c lower than they
were a week ago and lHtnbs are 25tf4oc
lower. Otoer markets have suffered In
about the same proportion, the break In
prices not being confined to thia point by
Feeding sheep and lambs at the close of
the week are 15jj2c lower than a week ago,
tne decline Delng due to t he breaL on fat
stuff. With prices on feeders so hltrh. it
is only natural that the market should
follow down the fat sheeD market. While
there Is a very larce demand for feeders.
buyers feel that they are paying high
prices and so long aa they feel that way
they may be depended uiion to take anv
advantage of favorable conditions to force
values to a lower level.
