CHICAGO, Feb. 1 The first specific re
ports of damage to fall sown wheat which
have been received here caused unusual
activity and strength In the wlieat market
today. At the close wheat for May delivery
was up He Corn was up VeSc. Oats
showed a gain of V,c. Provisions were W0
Strength In the market developed toward
the end of the first hour. At the immedi
ate opening the market was somewhat weak
and Initial quotations on May were a shade
to HJi'hC lower at S41iMVc. Factors con
tributing to the easier tone were llleral
hipments from Australia and mild weather
In the winter wheat belt In the I'nlted
States. As the session advanced trading In
creased In volume, shorts, commission
houses and cash Interests buying freely.
Tha selling was chiefly by longs. Respond
ing to the Increased demand prb'es ad
vanced steadily. Late In the day a report
was received from Kansas City to the ef
fect that the crop In Hurton county. Kan
aas, had been damaged 20 per cent bv the
unseasonable weather In the last month.
Other reports of damage came from Mis
souri and southern Illinois. An official fore
cast of much colder weather tomorrow and
a report of a billiard In North Dakota
which might temporarily check the move
ment of grain caused Increased anxletv
among the shorts. The market closed
strong with prices at the highest roint of
in aay. r inai quitatlons on May were at
ithiiit6Sfcc. Clearances of wheat and flour
were eual to WI.OUO bu. l'rlmnrv receipts
were 47.000 bu.. against 3i.(f bu. a vear
ago. Minneapolis, l'uluth and Chicago' re
ported receipts of aw cars, against St cars
put week and 239 cars a year ago.
Despite heavy primary receipts, the corn
market was firm for the creater part of the
day In sympathy with wheat. Shorts were
active buyers und the selling ws mainly
by longs. The market closed firm, with
prices at the highest point f the dav. May
Opened a shade lower to a sbrnle i'llier n'i
444'0 44c, sold up to 447c and closrd at the
top figure. Local receipts were S-'l cars,
with 16 cars of contract (Trade.
Oats had a at run r undertime, tiased prin

but later a good demand developed. May
opened unchanged at 3 1J.i3oc, told up to
S0Tie and closed at y Jo'c. Local re
ceipts were 104 cars.
Trading in provisions was exceedingly ac
tive and the market show, d unu.-uul
strength. A 5'sjlOc advance In the price of live
hogs was the chief cause of the strong
market, but In addition to packers, com

Market Tevelops A cat Weakness and
General Level of Va'iee it Lowet.
LAhGE SELLING ORDERS FROM THE WEST
Prospect of an ExteaslTe Strike
Among Coal Operators Aronaes
Anxiety of the Spec,
NEW YORK, Feb. 3. The speculative
position In the market developed acute
weakness again today and prices yielded
easily through the list. Deen Inroads
e.,ere made in the case of some of the
speculative favorites. The nominal motive
of the selling was the danger of a strike
of coal miners which Is brought to the
attention of speculators by the rupture
of negotiations for a settlement between
th miners and operators at Indianapolis.
Apprehension over the outcome was fed
by private advices from western sources,
accompanied by large selling orders from
the western speculative element. The
taking of steps toward a strike in tha
New Y'ork building trade increased the In
fluence of the consideration given to the
The st nsltlveness of the market to these
developments in view of the public re
ports of the progress making towards them
was proof of the vulnerable position of
the speculation due to the satisfaction of
the demand for stocks from the short in
terests following the sharp reaction of the
etirly part of the week. The weak bank
return also was unforeseen and an element
In th" weakness of the stork market, al
though the bank return was not Just
what was expected. The 31,129.600 decrease
In cash was much less than expected, but
the expansion of the loan Item by 318.
2M.SHJ in the face of the large liquidation
supposed to have taken place In the stock
market was a disappointment. The net
result was to decrease the surplus reserve
if'til by 34.7u2.225.
The yieluing of foreign exchange rates
and a rise in sterling exchange at Paris
carried conditions away from the gold ex
port point. The adoption of a measure by
the French deputies authorising an In
crease in the note circulation of the Bank
of France was a bearing on the outlook
for the movement of gold. The Hank of
France has refrained from offering In
ducements for securing gold in the recent
past owing to the fact that the authorized
limit of its note circulation had been
reachi d, leaving It no advantage from an
Increase of gold holdings. There were
some rallies fiom the lowest prices of the
day. but the closing tone was unsteady

CATTLE As usual on a Saturday, there
was no market here today, the receipts
being extremely light and nothing of any
consequence doing. The total receipts this
week have been allghtly larger than for
the previous week and larger than a year
ago by over 3,000 head. In spite of this
Urge run the market has been In very
Fat cattle began the week with a steady
market and good kinds were steady on
Tuesday, with the common kinds slow and
easier. On Wednesday, under the Influ
ences of moderate receipts and a good,
active demand, values firmed up and were
generally quoted a little better than the
previous day. This upward movement was
continued on Thursday, when salesmen
pretty generally quoted their sales as
strong to 10c higher. With no material
change in value during the last two days
of the week It follows that prices are
now just about loc higher than a week
ago. The cattle on an average have not
been any too good In point of quality, but
still there were a few good enough to
bring 16.50, showing that really prime cat
tle will bring high prices.
What has been said regarding the mar
ket on fat steers would apply in the main
to the cow and heifer market. As waa the
case with fat cattle, cows and helfeis be
gan the week about steady, eased off a
little, only to strenpthen up nsaln later
on. so that at the close of the week they
showed an advance if about 10c, the same
Stockeis and feeders have alio been vry
good sellers all the week and have been
In excellent demand for tMs season of the
year. Prices during the nrst lalf cf the
week were very string, but. as Is apt to
lie the case with this k)nd of cntt!e. es
pecially when receipts are running we!'
ut with the demand, the market eased off
somewhat toward the litter ran of tne
veek. At the close of the week It is rlliR
cult to distinguish any very marked differ
ence In values between now and a week
ago. Representatives sales:

HOGS There wis a fa'r run of hogs
here for a Saturday, although the receipts
were by. no mum large, still thev were
somewhat In e.xerss of previous Situ-iiuys
of recent date. Under the Influence of en
couraging reports from nil selling points
coupled with a good loril demand, the
market orened about f.c higher The ear-y
ales were on the basis of S 5!U for gnod
hogs. This price secured the bulk of tK
receipts, with some of the better hogs s..
'ng as high as to jB and on up to $i.57'i for
choice loads. The early market was nulte
active st the advance noted above and the
rig bulk of th receipts changed hands In
ood season. Some of the hesvlest buyers
however, were st'll fallowing bear tact!r-s!
ao that after the more urgent orders wer
filled the market became less brisk and
he feeling a Uttle easier.
The course of values th1 week has hen
llmost nteadlly upward. The week started
nut with values a shade rili.or. with a
slight reaction on Tuesdv. followed hv a
rood stiff advarre on Wednesday and a
Mrht reaction the dv after and the big
idvanre on Frldav. Th further advance
iday places the msrket at a rolnt that Is

to call It a market. This has been a week
Of extremely light sheep receipts, the total
bslng less than half what it was for tlie
previous week and a little more than half
the receipts of a year ago. This listht run
has been due entirely to the efforts of com
mission men and newspapers to keep down
the receipts at this point on account of the
limited demand. Had all other markets
rollowed the same policy prices for the
week would unquestionably have been
maintained, but in spite of the fact that
the eastern mutton market was badly de
moralised shipments of sheep and lambs
were encouraged at some points, with the
result that those markets broke and car-
- wnii mem me markets at other
points. The decline for the week at South

orieepinen do not anticipate any Improve
ment in the maiket so long as the demand
for mutton Is so light In the large eastern
consuming centers. Cold weather would
have a tendency to stimulate the demand
for mutton and might be followed by a
radical improvement in the sheep and lumb
market. This means that the market Just
at present Is largoly under the Influence of
Weather conditions, a mi so f.ir as can be
seen there Is no other apparent reason for
the present weakness In values.
