CHICAGO, Feb. 1. The 'wheat market
wua nervous today, prices fluctuating over
a range of 2 cents. Final quotations on
the May delivery were up V&o. Corn
was He higher. Oats were unchanged and
provisions 2Vc higher to He to 15c lower.
Wheat opened firm on covering by shorts,
demand being based on a steady market
at Liverpool and on muoh smaller receipts
in the northwest. Sentiment continued
quite bullish for a time, but toward the
end of the first hour prices broke sharply
on renewed proft-taklng by several of the
large holders. The May options showed
the greatest loss, the price dropping c
below the high point of the day. Shorts
again bought freely on the break, which
soon caused the recovery. Throughout the
remainder of the session the market was
nervous, but buyers seemed to predomi
nate and prices were Inclined to advance.
Late news told of an improved demand
fur wheat and ftour by exporters and this
helped to create a firmer feollng. The
clone waa steady. May opened o to c
higher at WS'it'.1;. aold off to Mc. and
cloaed at D67'q'J6c. Clearances of wheat
and flour were equal to 4U3,OuO bu. Primary

430,000 bu. the corresponding day a year
ago. Minneapolis, Duluth and Chicago re
ported receipts of 194 cars, against 329
cars last week and 248 cars a year ago.

of wheat prices. The market was quite
firm at the start In sympathy with wneat
and on smaller orders than had been esti
mated. Prices slumped, but rallied again.

the market waa nervous, being Influenced
almost wholly by wheat and corn. May
opened unchanged at 510, sold up to 51 c,
and then declined to 6o?c. The close was
at 61c. IxK-ftl receipts were 182 care.

that traders generally were disposed to
await the monthly statement of atocks in

MUCH DISCUSSION OF MESSAGE

.Near the Lowest.
NEW YORK, Feb. l.-Demand for storks
waa torpid today and prices drifted down
ward. Sudden weakness was marked at
different times and In special stocks some
of the selling wss attributed to foreign
account and Wall street expressed fear that
distrust of Amerlran securities as a re
flection of the tone of the president's
message to congress of yesterday was Indi
cated by this selling. An Interruption Of
a reviving demand for American securities
abroad, which Is hoped for as an aid tq
absorption of contemplated new capital
Issues would be a discouraging factor in
the financial outlook. Stocks of companies
with new Issues in the market wre con
spicuous in the decline, notably Missouri
Pacific and the Rock Island Issues. Borne
of the Industrials were weak also In con
nection with suggestions that they might
be the object of fresh proceedings by the
federal government In line with the policy
formulated In the president's message.
There was much dlscuaslon of the formal
announcement of tho determination of the

other lea. ling Interests in the trade to
maintain prices. The advantage of atable
condltiona In encouraging future commit
ments In business affairs is the feature of
this policy which receives approval. There
Is the recognition, however, thut It Is by
curtailment of output and prevention of
accumulation of stocks that pursuit of that
policy Is made feasible. The effect on
attempted economics of the railroads to
meet contraction In their earnings offers
another feature of the situation which Is
given conatderatlon. Reports of some re
sumption among mills In the steel trade
proved of no effect In holding prices, nor
did the opinion of the mercantile agency
reviews pointing" to an Irregular Improve
ment In commercial lines. Selling through
out the list was freely In force in the later
market and late prices were not far from
The bank statement showed the expected
Increase In cash holdings, but the averages
Were confused by the deduction from the
average accounts of the four minor banks
which have been closed since the last state
ment waa made. The completion of pre
parations opens the way for a report next
week to the state banking department of
the condition of state banks and "trust
companlea, thus providing for a complete
exhibit of the local money situation each

CATT L.K Something unusual happened
today. Saturday Is practically a Holiday
in tiio caitle trade, no one expecting re
ceipts of any consequence on that day, but
at HI there are always a few cars reported
in. Tills morning, however, for the tirat
lime in a great while not a single cur
of cattle uas reported curly. The rrcelpla
lor 1 1 ii- week have been ijuile libeial, the
total bctnt about the same us fur laat
week and ver little abort of last year a
fig. ires. The rcceiita !or t lie month of
Jam. ai y show a very heavy falling off
us compared with the cut respi. tiding mouth
of laat year, but with the huikIm exception
of laat year they were the luiKext for the
month of January in the history of tho
yarda and were laiger than any month
since lat October.
lieef steers hefcan the week with a good
sharp advance, the trade on Monday being
both active and higher. Thut. however,
waa the only day on which the trad' could
have been reported aa entirely sutlafactory
to the selling Interests. During the next
two days prices went down bill rapidly, all
of the advance and more, too, being wiped
out, so thut at the close of the week beef
ateera are generally 10.i2nr lower than at
the closo of laat week. Contrary to the
usual rule the good rattle suffered ns much
as the common to medium kinds. In fact,
on some days the better ttrades of cattle
were liarder to sell at satisfactory prices
than the commoner kinds.
C'.ws und heifers, in fact all kin. la of
butcher stock, liepun the week In active
demand and with prices gem-rally higher,
but pi it-en on such cattle eased off the
sump hh did be.-f steers and ut the close
of the week are generally lirii lower than,
luai week. There was on some days espe
cially a very fair shipping demand for the
better grade8 of cows and heifers, so that
prices on such showed less decline than
the more ordinary kinds.
Htockers and feeders If anything were
strong. -r and a feeder buyer paid as high
as $4 8) for very choice weighty feeders.
Light stoekors If possessing iiuallty sold
generally at about ateady prices, with in
ferior grades or trashy stuff hard to move.

HOCS-Thu hog market this morning In
one r.'sp.ct closely resembled that of yes
terday; that is, buyeis were all looking for
good, weighty hogs, and neglected the
lighter and less desirable kimls. Thus,
while the general inurkel was b-'jlOc lower
than yesterday a early market, the d'-dina
was more on the ltghta than on the heaviea.
The trade on the i.. uvy hogs waa g.-neially
active, and salesmen found little difficulty
In unloading anything having weight and
quality. On llie oilier hand It waa very
bard work to dispose of the lighter weights,
excepting at much lower prices. As noted
yesterday a good many more light hoga
are coming than uausl and there haa been
a tendency tins week toward an accumula
tion of that kind. Hence It bapiiened lliat
there were oulte a good many stale light
hogs on sale which increased the Uava
supply ty Just that mu Ii. In spite of the
disinclination on the part of buyers tu take
ftorr. tub divipend pavkrs.

and the big bulk of the receipts changed
hands In fair season at the decline noted
The receipts of hogs this week have been
decidedly larger than for the correspond
ing week of laat year, though not as heavy
as laat week. The total receipts for the)
month were the largest for the month of
January In the history of tlie yards, show
ing a gain of 103.000 bead over January of
laat year. Put that is not all; the recelpta for
the month Just closed were the largest of
any month In the history tf this market.
The market this week opened with a
small advance, but since Monday price
have been lower every day with the ex
ception of a alight reaction on Thursday
and Friday. At tho close of the week tha
market Is about 15c lower than one week
ago. ' i

I'nces tended upwaid and were a good 26u

the latter part of tlie week the tendency
was downward under the influence of
large receipts at all selling points accom
panied by a very aevere break at east era
