Wheat ahowed a alight tendency to
weakneaa. though the close 'waa practically
unchanged. Boars are getting frightened
by the continued strength In coarse grains.
The Russian situation was unchanged.
Primary wheat receipts were 2t,0Ui bush
la and shipments 210,000 bushels, against
recelpta last year of 430,000 buetiels and
shipments of 249,000 bushels. Corn recelpta
were 444,000 buahels and ahlpmenta $00,000
buahela, against reeclpts last year of 453,-
bushels and shipments of 378.100 bush
els. Clearances were 177,000 bushels wheat.
21.1109 barrels flour, 542,000 bushels corn and
10.000 bushels oats. . . , .
Liverpool closed unchanged to d higher
on wheat and SVH higher on corn.
nroomhall cabled: "South Australian
wheat crop estimated at 2O.4SO.O0O, against
20,143,001) last year and 12,000,000 two yeare
go. They eaumate the exportable surplus
at 18.800.000 bushels, which Is about equal
to that of last year."
Northwestern Miller says: "The Min
neapolis flour output last week decreased
88.740 barrels. The quantity turned out
was 211,786 barrels, against 267,900 In 19"
and 285,000 In 1906. The desperate situation
with the railroads Is seriously affecting
the local mills, and the smsllest capacity
Is this week In operation In a long time."

CHICAGO, Feb. 7. An urgent demand
by exports for American wheat caused
fresh strength today In the local wheat
market. At the close wheat for May de
' livery was up c. Corn waa unchanged.
Oats gained o. Provisions were lOlio
At the opening of the market prices were
somewhat easier because of the compara
tive weakness at Liverpool In the face of
the decided strength ahown here yesterday.
Before the end of the first hour, however,
the weakneaa was dispelled by liberal pur
chanes by commission houses, and through
.out the remainder of the day the market
1 waa atrong. Export newa was the -main
source of strength, although substantial
(advances (at Berlin, Parts and Antwerp
. Were minor Influences. One report from
- an export- house at Duluth stated that the
foreign situation Is the strongest for
years and there Is an urgent demand by
x porters.' A local house also reported
a bid from London for a large consignment
f tor ahipment to St. Petersburg. These
reports were partially confirmed by an
nouncement made ahortly before the close
that forty boat loads of wheat' had been
taken In New York for export. This re
port caused active covering by shorts and
sent prices up rapidly within the last few
minutes of trading., The market cloned
strong, with prices almost at tho highest
point. May opened H4i0 to c lower at
?fi79c, sold at 78t7o and then advanced
to w.c. Final quotations were at sawto.
Clearances of wheat and flour were equal
to 272.6UO bu. Primary receipts were 298,000
bu., agatnst 430.000 bu. for-the same day
Isst year. Minneapolis,' Duluth' and Chi
cago reported receipts of 204 cars, against
147 cars last week and 829 cars a year ago,
The corn market waa Arm early In the
day In aympathy with oats, but later the
tone became re her weak, because of
realising sales by some of the larger
- holders. Just before the close, however,
prices sgain became steady. In sympathy
with wheat. May opened a shade to W&'hC
lower at 474t'4ic, advanced to 47o and
sold off to 47o. The close waa at 47
47e. Local receipts were 278 cars, one
of contract grade.
Light recelpta and an excellent demand
by ahlppers caused a further 'advance In
the price of oats, the May delivery selling
up to 41VtJ41Vic. The feature of the trad
ing was the buying of the May and July
option by one of the largest holders now
tn the market. This demand caused active
coverings by shorts snd there waa heavy
profit-taking on the advance. The market
closed Arm. May opened unchanged to
lower at 40tm-c, advanced to 41641Ttr
and closed at 41c. Local receipts were 80
Provisions were weak, because of a lflc
decline In the price of live hogs. Trading
was not large. At the close May p g
waa off l&o at 07,75. I,rd was down ,e
at 8987. Ribs were loo lower at 89 87.
Estimated recelpta for tomorrow: Wheat,
9 cars; corn, 898 ears; oats, 89 cars; hogs,
26,000 head. " t
The leading future ranged as follows- ,

NEW YORK, Feb. T. A hesitating snd
Irregular advance broadened out In the
final hour of today's stock market Into
a more animated and comprehensive rise
than has occurred at any time since the
decisive downward tendency of prices set
In. The Inspiration for the moment is
largely In rumors of Washington origin
of a hew development there that should
relieve the corporation world from the
aense of hostility on the part of the ad
mlnlatratlon of the government. Up to
that time there were long periods of
dullness In the trading and the same lack
of follow-up to the movement that has
left the market without definite result.
There was an absence of the weakness
In Individual stocks which has been an
unsettling Influence in recent markets,
even when the general tendency was up
wards, and this was In favor of the mar
ket. A temporary eetback In Missouri
Pacific after the first recovery was the
only exception of Importance. There was
no clear reflection in the day s marxei
of any Important developments In the
condition of affairs. Sentiment was fa
vorably affectVd by the advices from the
winter wheat regions of ample snow cov
ering to Insure the safety of that crop
from freeilng weather for the Immediate
ruttire. The wheat market waa affected
at the aame time by the promises of extra
xoreign requirements ror wneat irom
Russian and Argentine shortages. The
southwestern railroads were mostly Im
mediately affected by this outlook.
Assertions of an Intended Increase in
the dividends on Atchison and Southern
Pacific, which have been often heard.
were also used with effect, especially In
the case of Atchison. Southern Pacific
was sluggish and did not respond even
to the later rise In Union Pacific upon the
reppriea return to his omce arter a pe
riod of Illness of the head of these sys
tems. Erie was a conspicuous feature
of the strength, the movement showing
evidence of being under the same auspices
as former large operations, In Reading.
Pnpspeeto for the proposed Increase In
rreignt rates. Which are being canvassed
extensively In the railroad world, gave a
subject for continued discussion. This
served to counteract to some extent the
showing of decreases In net earnings of
railroads by reason of Increased operat
Ing cost which has now become a general
tendency.' The traffic managers' plan for
raising freight ratea Is looked to aa a
possible means of Increasing earnings and
at the same time adding to the efficiency
of the present supply of equipment. The
intention of railroad companies to re
trench their plans for any fature projects
of Improvement Is now generally accepted
as a fixed determination. A reduct'pn of
the pressure for new capital Is expected
to result. But also a subsidence of part
of the demand for materials and for labor
is to be accepted as an Inevitable conse
The aunstlon of how far thla nrocesg
of readjustment may carry the reaction
in industrial activity la now believed to
account for the recent action of the stock
market where operations were reflected
tt persons Informed - the determination
oi railroad authorities to curtail their
Improvement plana.
The feature or the day In the money
market was the free offering of funds on
time supplies coming Into the market
f nom many sources and causing a. material
recession In ratea. Foreign exchnnare was
firmer, although the strong position re
ported by the banks of England and
France showed the growing strength of
the foreign financial position in solte of
the retention or the 6 per cent discount
rate by the Bank of England. While the
late rise In stock broadened out to some
extent, it waa still largely specialised
In the early favorites. The closing was
strong at trie nest.
Bonds were firm. Total sales, car value.
$3,080,000. United States bonds were un

CATTLE The market was absolutely de
moralised this morning. Yesterday tho
market closed off vsry badly, at leaat 10c to
16c lower, and thla morning it opened atlll
worae. buyers did not go out Into the
yards until late, and when they did their
bids were at least 26o lower than yesterday
morning, and on a good many cattle ail
of 6uo lower. This was true of all kinds of
killing cattle, steers, cows and heifers.
Feeders were not so much off, but they
were dull, a buyers could not extract to
take hold freely when the market on beef
waa In such an unfavorable condition.
Th reason tor the demoralised condition
of the market was to be foond In the fact
that packers were loaded ud with cattle.
while their refrigerators were full of meat
and there were no cara to ahlp the product
to consuming points, rur several days
back there has been a shortage In meat
cars, but everyone has been expecting that
the cars would begin arriving more freely
In a day or two, and packer have been
steadily buylpg the cattle at satisfactory
prices, aa they had plenty of orders for
meat on nana, xesteraay, wnen tne snort
age still continued, some of the packers
dropped out, and hence the low close of
the market noted above. This morning.
with the shortage aa bad a ever, It was
not merely a matter ot price, but a ques
tion of getting aome one to even bid on
the cattle. Even when' blda were made it
looked a good many ttmea aa if th bidders
did not want the cattle and were careful
to bid low enough so a not to b in
danger of getting them.
At th time ot closing this report there
were not enough cattle sold to, make much
of a test of the market, but It Is safe to
quote It 24x8600 lower than Tuesday - and
very dull. A good many cattle will un
doubtedly be carried over, or else shipped
to Chicago.
Shippers should hold back their cattle
until packers are able to clean up their
surplus meat and kill out the cattle that
they already have on hand. They cannot
do this until the shortage In refrigerator
cars Is raised.

SHEEP Ther waa a fair run of she
and lambs this morning, which together
with th holdovers rom yesterday made the
totsj tirreringn quite large for tnis time 01
the week. Th market yesterday closed
slow and weak, with something over 3,000
head unsold. Buyers this morning an
seemed to be looking for a few loads of
good killers, both sheep and lamb, and the
mantel could ssiei) 0 quoieu as aimut
steady on the good to choice klnda. Un
fortunately there were not many loada that
would come under that head. On the other
hand, the common to medium kinds of both
sheep and lambs were not only very slow
sale, but generally lodiliic lower.
The weakness In the market srtrear to
be due almost entirely to the Inability of
packer to ship out the mutton on account
of the shortage of refrigerator cars. The
snow blockades in some localities ana tne
general demoralisation of railroad service
have tied up refrigerstor cars so that there
Is a scarcity at all points for shipping pur
poses. Under the circumstances It would
look like good policy to limit shipments to
all market points for a few days until
r ackers have had an opportunity to clear
heir refrigerators. There docs not appear
tn be any ahortage In the consuming de
mand and there la no reason for hurrying
forward sheep and lambs now on feed In
the country.
