OMAHA, Doc. 24. 1906.
Trading was decidedly of a holiday char
acter and snap was altogether lacking In
the market. Wheat was Arm on large
anticipated decrease In the visible, with
Incomplete returns. May ruled at about
Saturday's price. December was lower,
but no Interest was shown In that op
tion, as It Is practically a thing of the
pant. Foreign markets were closed. Min
neapolis storks decreased 8J&.000 bushels for
two days this week.
Corn was firm also, though trade was
light. The dope Is, however, for lower
f. rices on corn, on account of the Increase
n the movement. Msy corn closed un
changed and December Ho lower. The
oash market was Improved.
The government report on oats seemed to
take the tuck out of a good many bulls,
and It would not be surprising to see oats
drag a little lower.
Owing to the holidays at various points
flHther primary receipts nor clearances
The Omaha Uraln exchange will be closed
World's wheat shipments were 8.824,000
nu , against s,738,ono bu. last week and 11.

8,713,000 bu., against 4.84A.0OO bu. last week,

According to a private cable from Ar
gentlna the weather Is favorable, but offer
ings are more scarce. Another cable says
that iLuropean crop outlook Is unchanged
A prominent miller ststes that while flour
business is dull and they don't look for any
Increased demand until after the holidays.
they sold a little abroad Friday and that
foreign markets are not much out of line
on Kansas flours. They look for business
to turn good after the nrat of the year.

weakness early In the day because ot sell
Interests. Traders wera somewhat at sea
because of the fact that many exchanges,
both In America and Kurope, were closed
today, and this had a tendency to restrict
trading. Weekly foreign statistics favored
the bulls, the world's shipments being less
than generally expected, and the amount
of breadstuff on ocean passage showed a
decrease of 1,792,000 bu. This was the only
newaxj .consequence -Commission iioueee
were the best buyers until the last hour,
when local shorts became active bidders.
The market closed firm. May opened un
changed to a lower, at 77WyT7c, sold up
to Tike, where It closed. Primary receipts
and clearances were not available because
of the holiday. Minneapolis, Duluth and
Chicago reported receipts of 707 cars,
against 782 cars last week and a holiday
one year ago.
The corn market was easier In the day
because of free selling by cash housa.
The offerings were brought out by reports
that the movement of corn from the coun
try Is on the Increases. Later the market
became more firm because of covering by
shorts and buying by commission houses.
The close was steady. May opened Vo
lower, at 43Vo, advanced to 43c an.l
closed at 43Va Local receipts were 614
cars, with one car of contract grade.
Oats were firm for the greater part of
the day. Cash Interests and commission
houses were the chief purchasers. Prices
were affected somewhat by reports that
country acceptances were smaller than last
week. Belling was scattered. May openod
unchanged to higher, at S5V'36Nc, ad
vanced to 367c, where It closed. Local re
ceipts were 233 cars.
Trading In provisions was active and the
tone of the market was strong. There
was a good general demand, based on a
fiU'lOo advance, in the price of live hogs.
The bulk of offerings came from local
longs. At the close May pork was up 2Tc
at tl.9f. Lard was up 2fc. at 1.42Y. Ribs
were 12H'515o higher, at la.0?Vi.
Estimated receipts for Wednesday are:

NEW TORK, Dec 24. There w a fur
thelr shrinkage In the price of stocks today,
followed by sme recovery and late re
lapse again. The demand became almost
stagnant at the recovered levels. It was
the common belief that such buying as was
done at the lower levels was largely for the
short account and represented the taking or
profits by the bears. These profits on the
shcrt side have reached attractive propor
tions In the course of the recent decline,
but the clneing out of these short accounts
deprives the market of a source of potential
support and leaves It correspondingly
weaker from a technical standpoint. Some
part must be allowed to the eve of the holi
day fir the profound neglect Into which the
market fell In the late trading. Many brok
ers left the afreet at an early hour In the
afternoon to get away for the Christmas
celebrations out of town. .
The rush of liquidation during the first
hour carried prices downwards with an ugly
iirninrann Th. rallies were on meagre
dealings and were In effect a readjumment
In lHk n.lvAntAjre far tne cessation tu w.-
urgent selling pre'sur- A feature ot the
drop In prices was the comparative ease or
the rail mnnev market during the period of
wenicnoaa In stocks. Ths rate ran Off to be
low 6 per cent by noon and was not above
84 per cent earlier. Yet the liquidation was
believed to be due to the monpy situation
more than anything else. It was believed
also to come from a wealthy class of pe
tlntra-a hn u.r ImnerViOUM to the effect
of the recent money flurries. The failure of
the present superficial ease to relieve them
from the necessity of reducing holdings is
the more remarkable. It Is suspected that
provision Is made for expected ruture neces
sities rather than for urgent present needs.
The beginning of the London settlement
was an Imcor'ant Influent- on the market
owing to the very high charges for carrying
over Americans Into the next settlement.
These reached as high as 12 per cent. It Is
reported that at the last lAndon settlement
there was a very large extension of the ac
count In Americans to take advantage of
the then easier rates for money in the Lon
don market. Today's high charges dis
lodged some of these accounts and the sell
ing bv arbitrage houses agalnnt the sales
In London was a large fartor In the weak
ness here. Sturday's break In prices also
had the effect of Inducing large calls for ad
ditional margins and where these were not
responded to holdings were sold out. The
week-end reviews Induced some liquidation
of long accounts on a general view ot the
outlook. The action of the Hill storks and
St. Paul has Induced an Impression that in
side Investment holders of those stocks are
dlsatlsfled with the terms of the new stock
Issues and are reducing their holdings on a
scalo very unusual with the conservative
holdings In those companies. The neces
sitous liquidation, although comparatively
small, was of aggravated effect on prices
owing to the paralysis o the demand. The
selling was believed to come from pools and
strong operators, whoee supporting meas
ures have formed the only substantial basis
for holding prices. With this element forced
to the selling side of the market Its artifi
cial character Is disclosed. Hterlng ex
change declined In spite of the easier money
market here and London showed Itself so
licitous over money market developments
Bonds were heavy. Total salea par value,
$2,168.00). United States bonds were un

the money market, v. huh created a more

situation. There was a moderate attend

consisted chiefly In arranging the settle

8.t dear. Consols hardened fractionally, but
t'v. eaaed later. Home rails were buoyant ow
ing to dividend arrangements. Operators
were surprised at the stiff carry-over rates,
10 to 11 per cent, which the banks charged
owing to the site of the American 1 t m
of the account. After 101114 hesitation
steadiness occurred and part of the parity

until late In the forenoon. That was not
enough to make any showing at all.
Buyers were out in good season, ana as

ShiDoers should understand that the
mtdholiday season Is a most risky time In
whk'hi to market came. Buyers usually
want a few loads each day, but the demand
is limited; hence If the receipts happen to
be light they are likely to sell to very
good advantage, but heavy receipts are
imost certain to sen meaner man any
time. The excessive receipts of common
to medium cattle laat week sent prices at
all points to the low notch of the season
and markets or tne country arc in no con

HOGS Opening bids were generally 243
6c higher than Saturday's market. A little
later the market became 6c higher, on
which basis the most of the early arrivals
changed hands. The trade was not very
active owing In large part to the difference
of opinion between buyers and sellers.
Sellers as a rule were pretty bullish In
their views and were making a strong
effort to force the market higher, while
buyers were reluctant to put on very
much, some of the heaviest packers not
being willing to advance prices even 60.
Later trains sold about the same wsy,
the market closing In good season In the
forenoon with practically everything sold.
As will be noted from the sales below the
big bulk of the hoas sold at tti UVit).15, as
atralnst $6 O'.tut.lQ at the close of last week.

evMnt from the ocvnveraaM Ion of buyers
that no treat number of sheep or lambs
Is wsnted Just at present. The feet that
the feeling today was better Is a good In
dication that If shlrpers will only use a
little patience until after the holidays prices
will quickly recover all the late decline
and 1 s nlsh as ever.
There la a pretty fair demand for feeders
at this point and anything desirable along
that line may be depended upon t sell to

number of sheep or lambs being wanted
this week would apply to other markets
as well a to this. Hat unlay 'a Chicago
Drovers' Joumsl In speaking on this very
subject, savs: "Though total nrTertn this
week (at Chicago) fell 44.0(4) under the pre
vious week, thore has been a further de
pression In prices for both sheep and lambs,
and unless moderate runs are landed here
nent week traders have no hope of evsn
maintaining the range In force lste this
week." The same paper quotes lambs 1HJ
260 lower for the week.

EASY TO SPOTTHE DEADBEATS
Restaarant Man Has !to Troahle Dla
rrrnlnc Honest aad DIs
"That, stranger Just left me the money
for a. meal he got yesterday," said a waiter
at the Boston Lunch Monday morning,
pointing to 'a man who was leaving. "He
came In yesterday and wanted something
to eat. Bald he had forgotten to cash his
check Saturday. We didn't want to cash
It, but filled his order.
"Q, follow here gets to know human
nature pretty well and we hardly ever
got fooled. Of course we don't make a
business of letting the grub go without
money, but what's a fellow going to do
when a hungry, honest looking man strikes
him? We learn to spot a deadbeat the
minute we sec him, but we learn to tell
the man who has left his money In his
other clothes or who has forgotten to get
a check cashed. A week ago a man who
left his money In a pocket of his Sunday
trousers ate $0 rents worth be re. Wo
didn't see him again until yesterday, when
he came In and laid down the money."

Father McGovern Looks After
Mea Who Agree to Lead
James Murphy and Thomas ifoMahan,
who held up and robbed Patrick Curry of
6 cents last Scpteinber, will not have to go
to the penitentiary for the deed. Judge
Sutton Monduy afternoon, on lils own mo
tion, granted a iew trial and discharged
the two men In the custody of Father Mo
Uovern of Bt. I'hllomena'i cathedral. Father
McQovern promised to look after them on
condition they would take a pledge to leav
drink alone for five years, would go to
church every Sunday and approach the
sacranlent at least once a month. To this
the men readily agreed. Judge Sutton said
the case would remain on the docket for
six months, and If at the end of that time
he was convinced the men had reformed
he would dismiss It. .
Both men promised to go to work and
become good cltlsens. The case attracted
considerable attention, as the amount ot
money secured was very small. They
might have been sent to the penitentiary
for fifteen years.
