Market Drag-glna:.
OMAHA, January t, 1907.
Th liquidation In wheat wn heavy and
price declined So of a cent. That the
rnarket did not Hhow more effect of the
heavy telling t due to the of
none, foreign markets were weak be
cause of large offerings from Argentina.
The Russian situation, generally favorable,
remains unchanged. There Is some talk of
a demand for flour from China and Japan.
Corn acta weak, but closed unchanged,
refusing: to sympathise to any extent with
wheat. Receipts were larger than lust
year, but cash prices held steady.
Primary wheat receipts were ts,000 bush
Is and shipments 324.UU0 bushels, against
receipts last year of 644.000 bushels and
shipments of 14.000 bushels Corn receipts
were 1,068,000 bushels and shipments Ml.imo
bushels, against receipts last year of KSs.OOK
bushels and shipments of 64ti,O)i0 bushels.
Clearances were 323,000 bushel of wheat,
140.44; bushels of corn, 2.750 bushels of oats
and flour and wheat equal to 360,000 bushels.
Liverpool closed M,Sirti lower en wheat
and unchanged on corn.
Bays the price Current todsy: "Normal
Winter thus far; growing wheat maintain
ing excellent condition; corn slow In drying
out; live stock wintering well. Packing.
490.000, against 610.000 last year."
A cable came from Buenos Ay res saying:
"Damage to wheat less than at first re
ported, quantity large, quality good com
pared to last year. Bhows Inctease of 10
per cent."
The shrinkage In the Minneapolis flour
output last week was 115.000 barrels, as es
timated by the Northwestern Miller. With
Christmas falling on Tuesdsy all the mills
were Idle for two days. The quantity of
flour turned out was 190,877 barrels, sga-lnst
1 12.080 In 1906 and 13,160 In 1904. This week
the mills are working on n normal banla
and a heavy gain In the output Is certain.
Minneapolis mills had a dull trade In flour,
and shipping directions came In slowly on
old business. An exception to the rule
was one Minneapolis mill, which made
good sales. Export business was Impossi
ble with most mills. However, a few sold

down prices In the wheat pit. Larger and
cheaper offerings of Argentine wheat at
Liverpool made another factor for lower
prlcea. Throughout the day offerings were
very heavy, many local and outside longs
being active on the selling side. Numerous
atop-lnss orders cams out aa prices declined
and still further increased the weakness.
The main support came from shorts. The
market closed decidedly weak, with prices
close to the lowest fxilnt of the day. May
opened He. to H : V lower, at 76Hc to litf
Hc, sold at 76Sc, and then declined to 75
Ji75c. Final quotatlona were at 754o.
Clearances of wheat and flour were equal
to 361,000 bushels. Primary receipts were
808,000 bushels, against 644.000 bushels for
the same day last year. Minneapolis, It
luth and Chicago reported receipts of 613
cars, agulnst 638 cars last week and 433 cars
one year ago.
Trading 111 corn was quiet and trading
was easy as a result or selling by cieh
houses, which was based on the prediction
of a cold wave throughout the corn belt.
' The drop In temperature. It was claimed,
will facilitate the crop movement and also
aid In the curing of the new crop. The
market closed steady. May opened a shnde
lower, at 43p4c, sold between 43c and 43Wft
4.1Sc, and closed at 43HTl43'4C. Local re
ceipts were 420 cars, with 4 of contract
Oats wers easier and the volume of trad
ing very small. Weakness of wheat caused
soma selling by pit traders, the offerings
being tsken by cash buyers. May opened
unchanged, at $(4c, sold off to 36c, and
closed at 3H4336c. Local receipts were
208 cars.
Provision were firm on buying by cash
houses and local packers, the demand being
based on a 6Hfl0c advance in live hogs.
Belling was chiefly by longs. At the close
May pork wss up 6c. at $16.67V. Lord was

NEW YORK. Jan. $ The stock market
of today failed to reflect any pronounoed
views on the speculative outiooa. xne
operations were largely In the hands of
professional traders and the movement of
prices indicated that they shifted tneir po
sition from time to time from one side
to the othsr In the effort to scalp a profit.
There was some evidence of a supply of a
numoer or prominent stocks ana in omen
there was enouch damsnd to form a re
sistance when depression was prevailing
elsewhere but there was In the first case
little pressure to dispose of holdings and
on the other hand the demand waa so
languid as to cause only a sluggish move
ment of prices. The Harrlman stocks were
still under some special pressure and this
was naturally attributed to the coming In
vestigation of ths relations between these
properties by th Interstate Commerce
commission which I to begin In New York
tomorrow. Reports of an Indisposition of
the president of th company may have
affected the stocks. Delaware A Hudson
fell away sharply In spite of the Increase
In the dividend rato which was not, how
ever, as large as holders have contended
ror. Amalgamated Copper waa a promi
nent Instance of strength due to current
reports of an Intended further Increase In
the dividend rate. Atchison was helped
by reports of the same character. The
market was made up almost entirely of
Individual movements of this kind due to
special causes. The list as a whole was
lethargic and save no aim of the working
of any reinvestment demand uch aa often
iouows the distribution ot profits Vat thi
time of the year.
The money market continued to relax as
It was expected It would do after the first
of the year. The maximum early rate for
call loans was 14 per cent compared with
20 per cent yesterday and the rats got down
to 6 per cent comparatively early In th
day. while 2H per cent was the lowest point
loucnea. Another day s large clearances
ai mo clearing house showed the rapid
progress of the annual settlements althouah
the settlement was adjusted evidently to
cover two days' Instead of one, so that
me clearings ror the first business day or
the new year are nowhere near the record
touched last year, although the total of tha
settlement effected Is much larger. Ths
sharp reaction from the high figures of
yesterday in the foreign exchange market
Indicates that the urgent demand for re
mittances had been met. All three of th
great foreign banks made weekly renorts
louay ana ail mree snowed tne errects
of the great year-end strain, especially
the Imoeiial bank of Germajw. for which
tho decrease In cash for the week amounted
to $17.6,000, the loan expansion $37.445 000
no me increase in note issues 37.8K,w.
There was some recovery In the discount
rate In Berlin from the drop of yesterday
iui ine aiscoum rate in inaon continued

LONDON, Jan. $. Money was plentiful
and In fair demand In the market today.
Discounts were weaker. Trading on the
stock exchange was fairly active, hut the
tone was somewhat Irregular. -Some home
rails and first-class securities yielded to
realisations, while consols hardened on the
easier rates for money and the better bank
statement. They declined, later, owing to
profit taking. Americana were rather de
spondent at tha opening, but light pur
chase during th forenoon lifted, prices to
a fraction over parity, but the support
slackened and values eased. The receipt
of the New York opening prices caused
moderate fluctuations and the market
closed irregular after a small amount of
business. Foreigners wer steady, in sym
pathy with continental advices. Kaffirs
were easy. Copper shares, with the excep
tion of Rio Tlntos. were In good demand.
Japanese Imperial ts of 1904) closed at 101 "4.
PARIS. Jan. $. The tone on the bourse
today was unchanged. Russian Imperial 4a
closed at 77.80 and Russian bonds ot 1904

CATTLE There was another very fair
run of cattle this morning, making the re
ceipts for the week to date about three
times as large as last week and consid
erably larger than a year ago.
The cold and snappy weather this morn
ing seemed to put more life Into the mar
ket and there was a decidedly better feel
ing to th trads In beef steers, although
prices were very little changed. Buyer
acted more aa If they wanted the cattle
and they were out In fair season looking
for desirable killers. While late trains de
layed the trade very much, the cattle sold
about as fast as could be expected and at
good, steady prices. There was one bunch
of steers good enough to bring $0.00, the
best price paid In several days.
Cows and neiters were aiso in pretty
good demand, at leant the desirable kinds,
and the movement was abuul aa active a
It could be with trains coming In all the
forenoon. While the market could hardly
be quoted better than steady, th! feeling
wss a little better than yesterday.
Stockers and feeders were scare again
this morning and the few here commanded
good, strong prices.
