The wheat msrket whs weak for the
greater part of the day, but toward the end
of the session covering by shorts brought
about a firmer feeling. The easy tone
early In the day was the result of Increas
ing receipts and stocks In the northwest
and reports o( a large yield from the har
vost In Argentina. Bradstreet'e report on
the world's visible supply showed a de
crease of 1,090,000 bu., against a decrease
of 7,6C0,0u0 bu. for the corresponding period
of last year, which seemed to give no
encouragement to bull traders. The selling
was quite general throughout the day and
the demand came chiefly from shorts. The
market closed easy. May opened He lower

Notwithstanding the weakness of wheat,
the corn market was steady all day. In
creasing receipts had a tendency to de
press values, but the unsettled condition
of the weather offset this Influence. Cash
houses were the principal sellers. The mar
ket closed steady. May opened a shade

Prices In the oats pit were slightly lower
In sympathy with the weakness of wheat.
Most of the selling was by cash houses
with western connections. The demand

ftlt traders. May opened a shade to ViSo
lower at 3Tinc, sold up to &ie, where
It closed. Local receipts were 112 cars.
Provisions were firm all day on buying

NEW YORK, Jan. 1 Prices of storks
wavered uncertainly today and showed a
tendency to settle back to Monday's dos
ing level. The volume of business was on
an Insignificant scale. The constraint of
the speculation wss not explainable by any
Immediate developments, these being mostly
favorable. But the longer outlook was the
subject of much consideration and of
greatly mixed Interpretation. There wa a
wealth of authority In evidence In the an
nual reviews on th great showing ot the
year Just past, but there was In all -of these
a rather surprising unison In the note of
caution mingled with even the most hope
ful passages, and from that ranging down
ward In the scale of optimism to an admis
sion of probable early commercial reaction
and depression. This had its effect on stock
The future of the money market also
seemed (ar from clear In spite of the prompt
relaxation which was manifest today In
this market and in foreign markets as well.
Berlin discount rates eased In a way to
give gratifying evidence of the successful
Iiasslng of the year and crisis In that mar
;et, which was especially dreaded. London
discounts ran off In a pronounced way. The
early 20 per cent rate for call loans here
was not held long. The huge volume of the
clearing house exchanges was witness to
the Important progress already made on
Monday In disposing of ths annual require
ments. Conditions seemed tending quickly,
therefore, towards the money relaxation
which has been relied on to revive stock
market activity. A modifying factor which
must be reckoned with Is the course of the
treasury operations In the future and which
were especially dwelt on in the January
circular of the National City bank. Provis
ion Is already Implied (or the return of
110,000.000 of government deposits held by
the banks, half on January 20 and half on
February 1. and the latter date was also
mentioned as the period for beginning the
return of the $27,000,000 of deposits made
with the banks In September last. The olr
cular estimates that exceaa of government
revenues over, payments between now and
January no win amount to KiK.udo.uuo ad
ditional. The opinion Is expressed that
money rates will be sustained by these
causes up to the time of the maturity of
the $115,wo,C00 of 4 per cent bonds, when
the outlook will he affected by the alterna
tive of redemption cf the whole Issue or of
partial refunding. Meantime prepayment
has been made of all the government In
terest falling due up to and Including
a striking feature of the day s financial
markets was the violent advance in the
foreign exchange market. The demand for
remittance seemed urgent In SDlte of the
easing of money markets abroad. It was in
terred mat obligations which were deferred
during the stringency in money here were
Demg covered on a large scale. The price
of demand sterling rose fully I pence In
the pound over that of last week. Ths
high Interest rates charged on stock mar
ket account for December had a discourag
ing effect on holders of stocks on margin.
The average rate for the month charged by;
me biock exenange nouses was 12 per cent.
The Impending inquiry Into the relations of
the Harrlman group of railroad properties
by the Interstate Commerce commission
was the occasion of some depression. The
HB1 stocks were supported and there was a
subsidence of the rumors of money troubles
growing out of the severe decline In those
stocks. There were other points of oc
casional strength, but thev yielded In the
course of the trading. The market closed
irregulaw and near the low prices of the
Bonds were IrreaTilar. Total sales, nar

HOOS Hogs sold 2H6o lower this morn
ing. IDs trade opened slow and It took
buyers and sellers some time to get their
ideas adjusted to a trading basis, but when
the Ice was once broken the hogs moved
off rapidly, so that the big end of the
receipts changed bands by 10 o'clock or
soon after. The bulk went at 4"-'0.BH.
as against 1.'U and 8426 yesterday. In
other words, the most of th hoars sold
only 2Ho lower, but there were esses where
salesmen were forced to take ort so. as
will be noted from the sale below the
popular price was 36.20. One choice load of
MO-pound hogs sold up to 86.27H. which wag
th top, as against 86.80 yesterday. The
market closed about steady with the open
ing, there being very little change through
out the day.

of his time In the Interest of humanity.

grounds committee and has endeavored la '
many ways to mnke himself a useful cltl- '
sen, devoting considerable energy to help
ing mankind, especially the little folks.
Thirteen years ago he was married to Ml" 1

WHY MISSIONS AP.E SEPARATE
Part of Geaeral Plan of neorgaalsa- '
i tloa of Benevolences, Say
Rev. J. R. Smith.
"Though It ha been contemplated for
some time, this was entirely a new ventur
for the church," said Rev. J. Randolph :
Smith, referring to the action of the Metho
dist church In divorcing home from foreign '
missionary work. "It la a part of the plan
of the reorganization of th benevolences
of the church.
Two years sgo, at the general confer
ence meeting at Los Angeles a committee
was appointed to effect the reorganization,-"
whlrh Is rflmmnnlv nnnken of aa a consoll- .
datlon, since In several Instances the work -
of various societies has been combined, t
For Instance, what wa formerly the work
of the Southern Educational society has '
come under the -management of th Educa-.,
"This committee recently completed its (
work, at A meeting held at Buffalo. For
elgn and home missionary work wag
formerly don by th same organization; "
now it will be, done by separate depart
ments. Th separation went In fore Jan
uary 1. Dr. A. B. Leonard, former cor- ;
responding secretary of the missionary so
ciety of the church, has been appointed oor-i.
responding secretary of the Foreign Ml-:
sionary society. Mr. J. M. King 01 fnna
dolnhla. former secretary of th Churchy
Extension society, has been made corr- -
ponding secretary of th Horn Mis-,
sionary society. Th appointments will
bold until th next general conference, '
'In 1907 It will be our aim to raise 1.-
000,000 for home missions and $1,000,000 for
foreign missions. Last year w had 'only
81.600,000 for both. The dlvlrlon of the. two
lines ot work 1 calculated to bring mor
money for both." ' . '
