Throughout the sessions prices fluctuated

point of the day was reached at 89-Sc. De

few minutes of trading there was a slight
spurt on the reported chartering of vessels

ever, closed easy, with May at sg-XNSSic
Final quotations on December were at 88c,
Clearances of wheat and flour were equal
to 848.000 bushels. Primary receipts were
1,108,000 bushels, compared with 1.1H8.000
bushels a year ago, Minneapolis, Duluth
and Chicago reported receipts of 776 cars,
gainst 884 cars last week and 784 a year
Veakness of wheat had a depressing ef
fect on the corn market early in the ses
sion. Slight declines occurred on moderate
selling by commission houses, later, how
ever, the loss was all regained on demand
from bull leaders. A temporary lull in ex
port demand was a bearish Influence. Re
ports of damage by wet weather had a
strengthening effect. The market closed
steady, with prices at about the highest
point of ths day. December opened Q
lower at 45c, sold between 4oo and Vtj
4c and closed at 4tvc. May ranged be
tween 4ic and 4tiiit 4tVc and closed at
4tic. Local receipts were 290 cars, with 12
of contract grade.
Sentiment In the oats pit was bearish as
a result of the weakness of wheat. The
volume of trading was very small, buying
being confined chiefly to pit traders. Cash
and export demand showed signs of abate
ment. December opened ''4c. lower at 3"lc,

SHARP BREAK IN PRICE OF STOCKS
C'loslasr Tone of Market
Easy an Slight Rally Da
to Hasty Prollt
NEW YORK, Nov. 4.-Th bsnk state
ment today, for the first time in many
weeks, agreed with preliminary estimates
based on the known movement of money
and on other fnctors. For that reason an-
parently as much as for any other it came
caused a break in prices of stocks. The
forces at work for the depletion of bank re
serves were notorious during the week and
the excited speculation in stocks gave an
obvious indication of expansion of loans,
hut operators have come to rely on a mod
ified bank statement to save the appear
ances of conditions. Yesterday's rise in call
money rates to per cent was a confirma
tion of the situation. -
The banking situation was, however, al
most Ignored today up to the time of the
appearance of the weekly statement on the
stock market tape. The response In the
market was Immediate and the closing tone
was easy, after a slight rally caused ny
hasty profit-taking on the part of bears In
the board room. The surslus reserve of the
banks la cut down by .the week's operations
io.076,60, bringing it to a meagre iz,x4,2Yi.
The heavy interior requirements for cur
rency have reduced the cash in the banks
some 17,406.100, thus effectively dissipating
the speculative hope tbat the turn In the
Interior currency movement had set In in
favor of liew York. Yesterday's sharp rise
in open market discounts at Berlin was
followed today by an advance In the offi
cial rate of discount of the Imperial Bank
of Uermany from 4 per cent to 6 per cent.
and there was a sharp drop In sterling ex
change at Berlin, further marking the pres-

in the bank rate in the middle of the bank
week In Itself marks an unusual situation.
Sterling exchange and the money markets
in New York were nominal, as is usual on a
Saturday, but the tone was firm and there
was growing expectation tnat goia wouia
ao out next week
Today's early stock market showed violent
speculative advances In a number of com
paratively obscure specialties. Reading was
under pressure and sold at one time 4 points
below last night, closing only a iraction
above the lowest. The loan expansion by
the hanks of 1,45,000 was attributed for
the most part to the speculation of the week
In the stock market, and bankers made
little dlsaulse of their satisfaction with
the check administered to the stock market

CATTLK There were sixty-five cars of
cattle reported in this morning; of this
twenty-two cars was through shipments. It
was an unusual happening to receive any
cattle at this point on a Saturday and
buyers and sellers did not know what to
make or it. The. result was that most oi
the stuff was carried over. As will be
noted from tha table above tha receipts of
cattle this week have been somewhat
larger than for the previous three weeks,
but a trllle smaller than for the first week of
last month. As compared with a year ago
there has been a gain of abut 9,000 head.
The week s trails on beef steers opened
at prices that were just about steady with
the close of last week. The run was only
moderate, and during the week the more
desirable Kinds oi cattle nave oeen miner
scarce, which, with good demand, has aided
in keeping the prices steady during the
week. All during tne wees: mere nas Deen
a decided shortage, of rornteds ana the
more choice class of cattle, while the de
mand for choice stuff of this kind has been
active, as a result choice beef steers closed
the week steady with last week.
Cows and lielters nave been in good sup
ply all week, there being an unusually large
run of cow stuff. Monday and Tuesday
the demand for this kind of stuff was
fairly active, both on the part of packers
and outside people, with the result that
cows were steady with last week on those
da vs. Wednesday came the big run of the
week on cows, about 126 cars being re
ceived. As a result, although the demand
was fair, prices were forced down about
10c. Thursday they held steady, but Fri
day witnessed another declln of about
loc. So that it is safe to say that the
market for the week closed 10H16c lower
than last week.
A very good portion of the stuff coming
forward this week has consisted of stock
ers and feeders. But there has been a
fairly good demand for this kind of stuff
the- last of the week. Monday the market
on this kind of cattle was Inclined to drag
a little, but for the remaining days of the
week there was a good demand and the
market picked up a little, with the result
that the market cloned steady to a trifle
nigner on ma inm . hvmvii v i .v.Ta , .ma,
and on the common and medium grade of
feeders tha market closed practically
HOGS Thera was a moderately large run
of hogs today and ths majority of the stuff
got into the pens at a reasonably early
hour, so that the traders succeeded In ef
(wtini a clearance In fairly good season.
The market opened in fairly good shape
this morning on the good, desirable kind
of hogs, which were in demand at prices
that were steady with yesterday's. The
liiriit-wnlirht stuff was the more desirable
and it was the mora desirable stuff that
brought the best prices. That kind of
hnt-a were In fair demand, while the com
mou and medium class of stuff was not as
strong and sold at prices that were a lit
tle easier. Taking the market as a whole
and to sum it up in a rew woras, mo sit
uation Is as follows: Trade was scttve,
with the market steady and bulk of the
stuff selling at prices ranging from J4.S6
to ft 80. The top price paia tor nogs touay
was tfi.00 for a choice lot. of stuff.
The market for the week has suffered a
decline of about 6c from the prices of last
week. Monday the market was slightly
higher than tne close or last ween, out
Tuesdav and Wednesday saw a decline.
while the market firmed up the last of the
week and closed with prices about 6c
lower than last weeK.

SHEEP There were no sheep received
this morning and there were no sheep of
any consequence left over from Hie sales
of yesterday, so that this morning there
was practically no trading at all. Receipts
lor tne weeK nave Deen oniy inooeraieiy
large, there being a smaller run than for
tha two previous weeks and al"o smaller
than the run for the corresponding week
last year by a considerable number.
While there was a good slxed run, there
has been something of a shortage in the
supply of desirable kinds of fat sheep,
wethers and ewes. There was a good de
mand tor tli same kind of stuff last week
and the supply was not equal to the de
mand, so that last week saw an Increase.
It was thought then that there would be a
good run of fat stuff this, week, with the
result tbat there would be a small decline
In prices. While there was a good-sUi-d
run this week and a fair supply of fat stuff,
there was an excellent demand for this
kind of sheep, with the result that prices
have gone up still higher on the more de
sirable sheep and the week closed with fat
sheen fcfiloc higher than last week's close,
while tha common and medium grades of
stuff closed the week steady with the pre
vious week's close. The trade has been
active all week and most of each day's ar
rivals have been cleaned up by the packers
surly and little or no stuff has hoen. car
ried over from on day to another. Tt

fce it was down to 10, and I huve not
the remotest intention of sellingr any of
It at present prices. Steel common will
cross fill nt nn pnrlv flutn unit It irt foolish
to contemplate selling It below 60. It Is
a cinch so far as anything csn be'u c Inert
In the stock, market. Steel preferred at
present prices Is absurdly low. There Is
no industry that is getting more out of
the present prosperity than the Steel In
dustry. Earnings of the next year will
easily surpass all records.
Another prominent steel authority has
this to say: "In estimating the possible,
earnings of the United States Bteel cor
poration for the last quarter of the year,
It must be taken Into consideration that
all departments will be operated to the
utmost of their capacity. In July and Au
gust steel, tin plate' and wire mills worn
not running full. Then, again, deliveries
In the last quarter of the year will rep
resent higher prices In many Instances. If
there Is no pronounced car shortage, tha
last ouarter will be the largest of tho
year from the standpoint of earnings. So
far as the United States Steel corporation
is concerned there need be no fear of a
runaway steel market.
The consensus of the situation in tha
nlir Iron market is expressed very fully tty
Rogers, Brown & Co., who say: "Interest
durig the past week centered about tha
standard BORsemer ana jviaiieame eessemer
situation. The heavy purchases oi mo
former by the Steel corporation are now
a matter of general knowledge, but specu
lation la rife as to what their needs may
be for the present month. The local sit
uation is even stronger than previously re
ported, heavy purchases having been made
by the larger Interests and a good ton
iihsta rolled un bv the rank ana file. To
the tremendous purchase of cars can be
traced tna increasing demand for malleable
, e for deliveries extending well
, , . , . i
Into next year, as tne roiiea siock cannot
dollvere D.fore next fall. Manufactur-
j t reported so heavy In all directions
,h"t fiiv ,ivanclnir nrlces for nla Iron.
8 coka may ioohe upon as
certain for well into next year."
A little natlenee will demonstrate to the
readers of this letter that even the pre
dictions of a most prominent financier may
prove wrong at times. In the past It has
not been usual for a bull market to start
from present high levels.
In discussing market conditions It is not
the nossible. but rather the probable with
whicn we are concerned, and I consider
It altogetner improoaoie ana aimosi ini-
possible for a decided bull market to start
from present prices, even though v a man
of Mr. Moore's national reputation asserts
that It will.
