principal selling was by a prominent bull, I 5.1?".V Di',,

from Argentina told of delayed harvesting
because of wet weather. Later advlcea.
however, contradicted these statement
from South America. Commission house

offerings. There waa lesa selling pressure
durlnc the last hour and the market cloned

and 79 cars a year ago.
Trading in the corn pit wn quiet and the
market wa Influenced chiefly by the weak

declared an Increase of 46.t.00l bu. la the

Intense excitement prevailed In tha oat

aa though a sensational decline wouin or.

the montjr rrarket exempt from a renewal

decided Improvement In the showing of the
tanks in tomorrow bank tatement. Most
of the casu gain Is due to the ubtrpury
operations, which had bern In favor of
the banks up to Thursday night to the
extent of t").4Jfi.O0. In addition to this the
Interior movement has been in favor of this
center, but the balance of the movement
shall be a small one. The gain in cash
I thu indicated In Itself sufficient to re
store a considerable margin of surplus in
the resfrve of the banks. The action ot
the lock market during the week points
to a considerable loan contraction having
been effected. In view of the heavy re
qnlrements confronting the market. It la
not believed that the reaourcf In hand by
the banks will be more tnen sufficient t-
meet the demands without any compli
cating factors, such as a renewed specu
lation. Advices from London pointed to a
netable recuperation of reserve also, by the
Bank of England by the receipt of over
.!. from Paris and over se
cured in the open market in LonJon. Ad
ditional gold Is expected to go from Paris
to London this week. London credits fts
exemption from a demand for g.ld from
New York to the compliance of New Tork
bankers with the neds of the London mar
ket. It Is believed also, that some ac
commodation may have been given for the
extension of credits to New York, falling
due on the first of the yesr. It ia to be
remembered also, that the railroad com
panies which are making large new stock
Issues are among those having the largest
number of foreign stockholder. Subacrip
tion to new stock by these foreign stock
holders will establish credits for this mar
ket abrosd which will Increase the supply
The day market offTed few features.
The prominent place held by St. Paul In
the recovery was not strange. In view of
the violence of Its fall, preceding. The
Hill stocks continued unsettled to some
extent and were slow to respond to the
general upward movement. There wss
further weaknes alno. In Reading. The
speculation waa. on the whole, restrained,
and the volume of dealings small. The
strong showing of the. Southern Pacific an
nual report seemed to have more effe-t on
I'nion Pacific than on the stock of the
subsidiary company. Minor Incidents f
the diy were the threatened strike of rail
road yard men In the neighborhood of New
York, and reports of damage suits against
railroads In Texas for delayed traffic. There
was some concessions from the best prices
of the day befere the market closea.

SHEEP Fieoeiits of sheep t'-is morning
Were very lirht and of the few r:irs re
ported In six were Montana wethes, the
same as have be n coming during the l ist
lew 1rb. They sold very readily at tl 1 .
the same as yesterday and diy bef ire. The
fact Is there Is a very active demand st
this point for both feeder sheen and lambs
and anything desirable In that line has met
with very ready sale at prices i-ntinly
nitsf actory to owners. No erne re's be
at mid to ship In desirable weslern feeder
at the present time.
The supply of killer was very limited.
Thsrs mere a few little bunches carried
2,5 over from yesterday, but th freh arrivals
1 i wocm vrv mukiffur The demand, however.
31. 71 t m;s also small and Is likely to continue so
:f7.T7 untii after the first of the year. It Is
31.7Si vnry evident that packer at -h" present
I .v3 time do not need very many of either sheep
3S.9 or lambs, and the best thing shippers c m d 1
17.113 , to sil down and take life easy until the
coming of the new year. This Is true not
only of this market, but ot other markets
as well. Advices from Chicago Indicate
that the market there has been overloaded
and prices are at the lowest point "f the
sensing, owing to the combination of large
receipts and small demand.

CATTLE Receipt of cattle this morning
were very light, there being about fifty cars
reported in. Some of theie did not arrive
until late, so that there waa at no time
enough on sale to make very much of a
showing. The general situation in the
market haa not changed, but remains prac
tically the same aa was detailed yesterday.
As usual during the holiday Season, th"
demand is light and is not likely to be very
brisk until the coming of the new year.
This Is the case not only here, but at every
nients for the next wk or two The mar
ket at Crdcigo, especially, has been demoral
ized and prices everywhere are oeclde-1'7
lower. The decline is anywhere from iaii
5oc from the hiuh time.
The few cattle here this morning sold
about the way they did yesterday, cer
tainly no hlrlier. and the trade was slow
and generally featureless. Thia would apply
to both steers and cow stuff.
There were very few feeders here this
morning, but aa usual toward the last of
the week, no great number wa wanted.
Such aa there were sold very little dlfftsrcnt

hold up values, but It waa impoeaible In
the face of the overwhelming bear newt
A usual with a lower market, the tra1e

aa so good that the market did nut clu
much different from the opening. It will
be noted that the bulk cf the hoi; aold at
