In the later stages of the trading the mar

one of various signs that the strength of
the market was not due to an Important

Ftocks which were weak yesterday were
Ihe principal gainers In todny's movement, j
while those that offered firm resi tince to

an end to the forced selling of stocks by
withdrawal of credits. The early rate for
call loans was aa hleh as it per cent,, but
the rate receded to 10 per cent before noon
and to 7 per cent afterwards. This result
was plainly due In an Important degree M
the liquidation effected In the stock market,
especially yesterdny. The result was seen
In the number of brokers who were paying
off loans, having sold their stocks. An
effect was produced on the tone of the
money market by Ihe announcements of
the rallrond companies that they would
prepay dividends and Interest due on Janu

example of the New York Central annunced

still flooding Chicago will have tt tendency

only one thing for sellers to do and thnt
is to wait until the demand revives again

have been any time. To sacrifice fat stuff
by sending It to Chicago or any other mar

CATTLE As noted yesterday, receipts of
cattle this weok have been heavy and far
In excess of live coirvfUioodjBg week of

the result that prices nowhere have been
very saliaiactory to the selling Interest s.
Hal I road service has been particularly bad '

here Is no exception to the general rule I
may be readily seen by reading market
reports from other selling points. Yester
day's Chicago Drovers' Journal said:
"Heavy liquidation the laat week has sent '
the market 2&&40C lower and a considerable
number of the $6,004)6.60 steers today were :
cited by both the buyers and salesmen as
selling 60c off from the high prices paid
ror tnem Monday of last week. The same
thing is true at this point, where prices
on a good many ot the cattle are at least
50o lower than the high time.
This morning the receipts were not quite
so heavy, but trains were very late In
arriving and the market was prolonged
throughout the whole day. The opening
was especially slow and during the morning
It looked more like Sunday in the yards
than like a Thursday. As to prices, it
was hard to say, ,but with the trade drag
ging It was hardly possible for them to be
any better, and the general market might
best be described aa slow and weak.
Cows and heifers were also dull some
ui inn uuyers oeing pretty wen ruled up i
iiu no 1 idling, apparently, ior ao.dlUon.il
supplies, at least not to any extent. The
result was that cows and heifers were also
slow and weak.
No great change took place in the feeder
trade, the market being in about the same
vuiiuiiiuii as uuuineo yestercay.
