CHICAGO. Feb. 20. Mild weather In the
Vnlted Ktates and an official report showing
an Increased wheat acreage In France
caused a slump In the local wheat market
here today. At the close wheat for May
delivery was off Hffc. Corn was down
rrtc. Oats showed a loss of V8S.C Pro
visions were "HtjliHc lower.
The wheat market waa weak from the
opening. The initial Quotations showed
May down Wdc at 82V27e and before
ine ena ot tne nrst hour tne price had
dropped to 81TiC The principal cause of
the decline was the French crop report,
which showed that 16.0M,0u acres had been
seeded to wheat, against 16,632.000 acres last
year. As trading progressed additional
news of a bearish character waa received.
chief of which was a report from India
that additional rain had t alien In several
provinces. The world's visible supply as
shown by Brsdstreets Increased l.".60,(mo
bushels, against a decrease ot J9,0u0 bushels
for the corresponding time a year go,
Total prmiaryrsceipfs of United States
for today were tfcs.OOO bushels, against
Mt.MQ bushels a year ago. Around sic fur
-May mere seemed to le an almost un
limited number of buying orders. Borne
of tnese were the result of damage reports
from Missouri, but the larger part was in
the nature of covering by shorts. Prices
rallied somewhat lste in the day. but the
close was weak with May at IS-'SUa-'tc-Clearances
of wheat and flour were eoual
to 21,lv0 bushels. Minneapolis. Duluth und
i.nlcago reported receipts or 34 1 cars,
against 9o cart last week and 300 cars a
Wet weather in the middle west caused
active buying of corn by commission
houses early In the day and under this
demand the market waa stesdy during the
first hour, loiter, however, persistent sell
ing by cash houses and pit traders, who
were actuated by liberal primary receipts,
lower rirlces for caslr corn and the slump
In wheat caused the market to weaken and
the cloae was easy. May opened unchanged
to a shade lower at to t.T.frta-t.e. sold
up to 4T-Sc and then declined to 4:c. Final
quotations were at 43c. Local receipts were
4m cars, witn nineteen cars or contract
Becauae of profit-taking by a number of
f imminent longs, the oats market waa wenk
hroughout the day. The break In wheat
waa the chief depressing Influence. May
opened a shade to VbV lower at 29e to
2wc. sold between 24iSc and closed a
2StKc. Local recelnts were 199 cars.
Provisions were weak on profit-Inking by
local longs and the decline in tne grain
market. Lard and ribs showed less weak
ness than pork becauae of active buying
bv Deckers. At the close May pork waa

NEW YORK STOCKS AND BONDS I i
Market it Irregular, Generally
READING THE FEATURE OF THE DAY
Extensive Rnylnc by korts and Prob.
able F fleet of t'onrt nerlslon
end Prleea ( m and
NEW YORK. Feb. 20.-The eidence that
Urgent preeaura to sell was completed for
the time being, which made itself man
ifest In yesteruay's stock market, was con-
nrmeo by tne early action ur prices loony.
There was some wavering during the first
hour of trading which earned tne level
below last night's close for a brief time.
The latter action of the market, however,
demonstrated that this selling was mostly
for bear account In an effort to renew the
decline. The demand to cover short sales
then made, helped the general strength of
the later market. The advances were
rlelded abruptly before the close on the
per cent loan rate. There were some out
standing shorter accounts to be covered.
wnicn were of longer standing, especially
represented more substantial speculative
sentiment. Buch short covering was very
obvious In Reading. This stock was the
feature of the day and Its furious activity
caused by the enormous blocks absorbed
on the advance overshadowed the whole
market. In spite of this congestion of
activity In Reading, and to a less extent
few other prominent stocks, tne vol
ume of tha dealings contracted considera
bly. The yield nar tendency of the market dtir-
ng the first hour. In which Reading fully
shared, was due In large part to the de
ductions drawn by speculative operators
from the decision of the supreme court
against the Chesapeake 4k Ohio In the mat
ter of transportation charges for coal sold
for its own account. It was Inferred that
the present status of the anthracite com
panies would bring them within the scope
of the decision with wide-reaching effect
on the business of the combined anthra
cite companies. This opinion was modl-
ned upon closer study of the decision oy
the court and clauses were found even to
be Interpreted as giving legal sanction to
the present condltlona of operating In the
anthracite trade. The vigorous recovery
In Reading owed something to this con
sideration. With the relaxation of the
pressure to liquidate demonstrated there
was some natural turn among proiession.il
operators to take the long side of the
market again. The buying was fitful and
Irregular, however, and Inclined to make
Itself most felt in the stocks which have
long moved under the control of market
combinations. The Hill stocks were again
conspicuous, and there was a very large
proportion or the less prominent Industrial
specialties In the list of gains.
The time money market reflected tne sub
sidence of the rush among speculative bor
rowers which aggravated the scarcity last
week. Bankers report also a large Influx
of funds to the local money market for
account of out-of-town Institutions. The
rates for call loans, however. Jumped late
In the day. The effect waa pronounced In
the stock market, coming at a time when
the room traders were tempted to take
profits on the day's rise anyhow. The late
lllng was due in part also to tne mod
erate proportions of the demand attracted
by the check to the reactionary tendency
of the market. Hopes that a very large
waiting den.nnd would come forward when
the limits of the decline seemed to be
reached were disappointed. The flurry In
call loans to 8 per cent was due to the
shifting of accounts Incident to the pay
ment of subscriptions to the 130.000.000 of
New York City bonds sold last week. The
example of the sensitiveness of the money
market and the future payments of a sim
ilar character In prospect on other bond
subscriptions were not relished by the
speculative sentiment and prices yielded
so sharply aa to carry the level generally
back to below last night and make the
closing tone easy.
Bonds were steadv. Total sales par value
$2,085,000. United States bonds were all
unchanged on call.

CATTLE The receipts of
morning numbered ZA cars, which was the
largest run of the year to date; In fact, the
largest of any day since me second week
In December. With so many cattle in
sight and with the quality on an average
none too goon, buyers were in a position
where t lit v could afford to take the bear
side of the deal. Hence fl'ts general ten
dency of the market was towu4 a lower
level of values. v
Buyers were out In the yards In ve.v
fair season, but with the number of cattle
on sale they were apparently disposed to
look over tne yaras quite thoroughly be
fore making extensive purchases, hence
the trade was a little slow to open and
was at ho time very active. In a few
cases seliors who happened to have beef
steers that Just suited a buyer thought
that they were able to get very close to
yesterday's prices, but such cases were
few and far between and the general mar
ket could hotter be quoted 10c lower. Aa
a rule the beef steers were on the common
to fair order, and hence sales do not show
up any too well on paper.
The situation as regards butchers' stock
was very much the same as with steers
that Is. the supply on sale waa unusually
large and buyers were able to take their
time in filling orders. Hence the trade was
slow in opening and the forenoon was well
advanced beforu very much business waa
transacted. AS was tne case with steers,
there were a few instances where sales
men who happened to have something that
just suited a buyer's-order, prided them
selves on naving gouen out in very good
shape, but It would be no misrepresenta
tion to quote the general market as loc
Stockers and feeders for the first time In
a long while were a little slow and any
where from weak to loc lower than yes
terday. The feeder market had been strong
and active for every day for such a long
time past that It hardly seems possible
for it to be anything else, but with the
liberal receipts this morning, and the fear
on the part, of speculators that there would
be another large run tomorrow, acted as
bear influence, which brought about a gen.
era I shading ot values, aa noted above.

HOGS This was a day of Urge receipts
or cattle, hogs and sheep, all showing the
heaviest runs of the year to iinte. In the
rase of hogs the receipts ran ,ar ahead of
the early estimates, no one having antici
pated anything like the numoer mat out
in an appearance.
Considering tne large receipts, the mar
ket from a seller's iandint, was by in
means bad; on the contrary it was In the
main a good market. Prices were only
a shade lower than yesterday and tne
trade as active as could be expected with
over. w fresh cars on sale. Tho hogs sold
very largely at 6.86'uii.OO. which was about
the same tange as yesterday. There was
this difference, though, that there were
more sales at the lower price today, while,
according to some of the buyers, tne qual
ity was better. Cnder the influence of a
good buying demand the larger iirt of the
hogs sold In reasonable season at the range

SHEEP In spite of the fact that the re
ceipts were the largest of any day since
November (, the actual offerings of desir
able killers were small. As a matter ot
fact, there were a few loads of right good
sheep and lambs, but the number was
small, it beinc estimated that not to ex
ceed one-third of the receipts consisted of
desirable killers. Among tne arrivals was
, . , . , , 1 .. .
a very consiaeraoie sprinkling ui iuu,
South Dakota, and Colorado sheep and
lambs of very ordinary Quality, over one
third of the total receipts was made up
of stock from these three states. All were
d saDDolnllna- In oualltv.
The size and the quality of the receipts
would naturally have a depressing eflect
upon the market, but In addition to that
other market points were sending out re
ports of large receipts and lower mar
keta at the ooenina. A still further baar
Influence was the fact that local packers
were all large purchasers yesterday, none
of them having anticipated anything like
such a large run today. In consequence
none of them were In any great need of
supplies. With so many bear Influences at
work It was not surprising that the market
waa In anything but a satisfactory condi
tion aa viewed from a seller s standpoint.
The trade opened very slow and was a
drag from start to finish. It n late In
the forenoon before all the stuff reported
had arrived; It was still later before the
market really opened, and very late before
anything like a clearance waa made. As to
prices, it is sare to quote tne inaraei an
of 'Sa'2Lc lower.
