SHORT INTEREST REDUCED

NEW YORK. Sept 18. A large reduction
In the outstanding short Interest In the
stock market was assigned as the prin
cipal cause for the Isnguld subsidence In
the brisk upward movement which was
In evidence yesterday. It was conaldered
significant of this condition that return
mas made ot some large amounts of stocks
which had been borrowed for delivery.
The elimination of this requirement fytn
the situation left the demand feeble nd
Ineffective on prices.
The progress of the taking of evidence
In the government suit to dissolve the
Standard Oil company was of more In
fluence on the msrket than yesterday.
The progress of a- new phaae In the New
York traction merger Investigation with
the coming return of Important witnesses
sharpened the attention to activities of
this kind. Traders on the floor of the
stock exchange drew unfavorable lnfer
encee from the selling of eo"-. very large
blocks of United Ststes steel, owing to
an assumption that the personality of the
sellers represented affiliation with Impor
tant snd well Informed Interests in the
steel trade. The Incident was decisive In
ending the upward movement which de
veloped after the Irregular opening In the
market. Actual happenings with Im
portant bearing on values were few. The
maintenance of the present dividend rate
on New York Central wag of favorable
effect, although the previous fesrs of a
cut have not been held for several days
past. Good inferences also were drawn
from the Intimation that the number of
stockholders In this company had doubled
since the 1st of January last, although
this was not ancepted as assurance that
this was a condition that would hold true
of the railroad companies In general.
The Immediate feature of the money
market is the large offerings of mercan
tile paper, the result being a stiff T per
cent rate even for the prime grades,
while names less well known are reported
to be paying considers bly higher rates.
The call money slso shows the effect of
the psyments making for the New York
city 4H per cent bonds. Satisfaction was
felt by some Interested in the money . msr
ket over the showing of the national
banks aa contained In the controller's com
pilation of reports of condition on August
22. On that date the proportion of legal
reserve' to deposits had arisen to 21.33
per cent, compsred with 21.22 per cent on
May 20, the date of the preceding call,
and 20.70 per cent on September 4, the
nearest corresponding date last year. The
comparison with the nesr period shows
an Increase In specie and legal tender
holdings of over 810.000,000, and that with
the more remote period an Increase of
877.600,000 Individual deposits were 83,844,700
less than In May and IU9.097.092 more than
In September of last year, while the loan
account had expanded 847,440,277 since May
and 8379,O0.802 In the yearly comparison.
In the Item of "due from bankers and
reserve agents," there has been decresse
since Msy of 268,3.19,925, reflecting the de
cline In the amount of the reserve of the
smaller banks on deposit on the reserve
centers. Lessened power of interior banks
to withdraw currency from the reserve
renters would be Implied by this show
ing. Another cut In copper at the metal
exchange brought the bid price below 15o
per pound, with offerings of electrorytlo
copper at 15c. This hsd the effect of
shsklng confidence that has shown signs
of growth In an arrest of the decline in
the neighborhood of 15c a pound. 8tocka
recovered part of their declines.

CATTLE There was a fair, but not ex
cessive run of cattle for a Wednesday.
With a very decent demand the market as
a whole was In fairly satisfactory condi
tion viewed from a seller's standpoint.
The supply of beef steers was very
moderate. In fact, there were not many here
yesterday, considering the total receipts.
With moderate offerings sellers generally
figured that they were able to get about
the same prices as yesterday for their hold
ings. The trade was late as usual on ac
count of the railroads delivering the stuff
so late at the yards and It was well along
In the day before anything like a clearance
There were quite a good many rows on
sale this morning, she stuff constituting a
considerable proportion of the arrivals these
days. The market was without any note
worthy change. Most sales looked just
about steady with yesterday. There was a
little more life to the trade than on some
The feeder trade was also about the same
aa yesterday so far as prices were con
cerned. Sellers as a rule figured that they
secured about the same prices as yester
day snt the general 'isrket was quoted aa
Steady. Feeders are selling at least a
qtiarter lower than a week ago and tho
break has brought the market down to a
point that Is more -s.rlv In line with buyers

SHEEP Receipts of sheep yesterday
proved considerably larger than esti
mated, the oHlulal count showing 12.183
head received. Today the receipts were
disappointingly small, being only about
half as large as yesterday. More than
that, trains were late, so that when tho
market opened only about half of the es
timated run was in sight. It was late
before everything was In.
Feeder buyers were out In full force
and they did not wait for late trains,
but started In at once buying up every
thing In sight as fast as It could be put
In shape to be shown. Moreover, they
paid good strong prices. Five cars of
feeder lambs- sold on the opening to a
feeder buyer at 87.15, the highest price
so far thla season. The fact that Chi
cago sent out opening telegrams Indi
cating a lower market there the same
as yesterday did not have any apparent
effect, everything selling early and much
faster than It could be weighed. It was
a good, strong and active market from
start to finish.
There was 110 quotable change In the
market for killers. The supply was far
from large and with a reasonably good
demand steady prices were maintained.
One thing western sheep men must
guard against and that is sending too
many sheep or lambs to Chicago, espe
cially at this time of the year, aa Chicago
does not have the feeder trade to take
care of them. If too many are sent there
the Chleaso market breaks very easily
and that has a naturally weakening; effect
upon the Omaha market.

The prospect Is good for a fine displs)
