CHICAGO. Oct. 6. A record-breaking in
crease in the world's available supply of
whest wss sn important factor in causing-
slump In wheat advices here today. Final
uitoiatlnns showed a net loss for the day
of Ha to lifi'IStc. Corn, oats and provisions
were also weak. . . .
The wheat market wa n'rvons the entire
session and trade was-of" only moderate
volume. There was considerable aelllnit at
the start -of the wheat bought on yester
day's war scare, when early cables dis
closed the fact that the foreign a-raln mar.
kets apparently reflected no excitement In
Kurope over the prospect of the beginning

Continued- liberal recelDta In the northwest
alao Induced moderate selling- early la the
day. As a result of the. proflt-taklnr prices
declined nearly lc on the tlocal exchange
during the first half hour.-- A aharp rally
occurred later In the saasidn o wins' to an
unconfirmed report that, war had actually

bu., compared with l.,0n0 bu. on the cor

Profit-taking by local longs on a liberal
scale cauaed weakness In tha.corn market.
Much of the selling was duetto numerous
reports received today- which seemad to In
dicate that the new crop had not been seri
ously Injured by the- recent frost. Prices
at tho close were almost at the bottom.
Docal receipts were 167 cars, with 38 cars
of contract grade.
Oats were dull and weak, the bearish
sentiment being largely due to the weak
ness of wheal, although a slow demand for
the cash garln was partlv responsible for
the heavy tone. Prices for the cash grain
were Wifte lower. lcal receipts were 413
Renewed selling of provisions by local
packers caused a fresh slump In the price
of the hog products, following the steady

NEW YORK. Oct. 6 Whether on ac
count of thi Bslkan war cloud or for some
other reason, there was much nervousness
manifest In todny's stork market. Fitful
and irregular fluctuations of prices fol
lowed each other all day.
A vigorous show of resistance to the pre
vailing depression of foreign markets was
made at the opening, when, heavy buying
orders forced prices upwards with some
violence. The sggressive operations In
Union Pacific led to a supposition thst the
leadership of the market was being reas
serted by th forres long supposed to b
In control. Buying to cover by the short
Interest which sold freely In the final
break yesterday was sn element In the
epuit. The news arriving from abroad
by that time was alao of a reassuring
character and the report of the Turkish
sultan's Intention to appeal to, a conference
of the powers rather than to' declare war
agalnat Bulgaria was regarded as offering
a means of peaceful solution of th compli
cation. Th alignment of the powers on the
new situation presented Is watched with
manifest snxlety and sll Indications that
serve to define their attitude are welcomed
on the financial markets. As much signifi
cance was sttached to the action of the
foreign exchanges and the grain markets
as to that of the stock market, as the in
fluence of other forces was manifest In the
stock market. .The adjournment of the
Northern Pacific directors, for Instance,
without declaring that large extra cash
dividend which was confidently predicted
yesterday, proved disconcerting; to a con
siderable! speculative element which has
been operating confidently on the strength
of these predictions. Northern Pacific
weakened materially after th adjournment
of the dlrectora' meeting and carried the
list with It to a level below last night.
This was In spite of the favorable showing
mad by the outline of the annual report,
n wnicii tne depression of the Inst fiscal
year was reen to have made but moderate
Impression. The failure of the Northern
Pacific rumors to come true cast ana.
plclon on a number of other rumors which
were effective In vestenlav'a anemia t Inn
and awakened a fear that they had been
prompted simply by a speculative manip
ulation. The afternoon weakness was
traceable. In part, to the news of the em
barrassment of an important bond house,
having connections both In New York and
fiosion. ana to the knowledge of the meas
ures which had to be taken to conserve
the large resources Involved. The decided
strength developed by the foreign exchangs
nan ratnr an impressive effect, as Implying
an- elffecaAve foreign demand for tilth.
drawal of funds from New York. The de
mand was associated with tho war news
and was the occasion of some misgivings
as to the accuracy of the more superficial
Indications. The wheat market, also,
strengthened In th latter part of th day
trcm ine more serious consideration of the
war prospects abroad. From this Interim
of weakness the market waa lifted again
by the buoyant advance In Rock Island
prererred, which rose to fifty oh transit
ions n, very large Individual blocks. The
rJss In that stock was explained by news
concerning the property and was regarded
as most Important In Its Indication of the
speculative opinion of th financial group
controlling th property. The market ended
strong under the Influence of the animated
dealings In Rock Island preferred.
Honas were irregular. Total sales, oar
value, $3,290,000. United States bonds were
unchanged on call.

MOOS-Conditions In the hog market re
mained about the eame as noted yesterday.
The downward movement in prices which
set In some time ago still continues and
buyers are decidedly hearten In their views.
The market this morning sufteted another
decline ot about 16c, or, aa some would put
It, Km20c. While the trade was at no tbno
sctlve the more desirable of the offerings
kept selling and the greater part, changed
hands In pretty fair season.' A good many
ot the hogs sold around 86.26ft6.35 and nil
up to i.4) It -will be remembered that
there waa a top of $1.65 yesterday, wliilo
the most of the hogs brought 6.4Oo!.60.
SH'EfciP Receipts were again very light
today, the. total run for yesterday and to
day not being any more than enojgn 10
make one day's ord nary it elpts. The mir
ket on fat snet-p anu lambs was akaui
wihlly higher, prices being at least i'6c
higher than yesterday and in acme cases
more than that. Pretty decent Wyoming
lamba sold up to 16 SO, with yearlings at
$4.40, old wethers at $4.75 and ewes at J4.50.
Everything that would do for killers was
snapped up In very short order by packer.
The trade on feeder sheep and iambs waa
not very active, the movement beng a
little dull, due perhapa tn large part to thu
fact that sellers were all trying to force thu
market up to keep It in iina with killers,
while feeder buyera seemed to think that
prices were already hltih enough and Were
not Incline! to pay any more than yesterday.
The result was that the feeder maiket was
at no time very active and prices would not
show very much change. As lece pis were
light pretty much everything change! hands
in pn-lly ialr season In the morning. Homo
pretty good feeder lambs sold up as high
In order to fully realize the advance that
nus taken place in the market, ii la neces
sary to look back aeveral days. As com
pared with the low time laat week, the
market today on fat sheep and lamba is
safely tl.wij 1.25 higher, and some cases
could be pointed out where the advenes
might be even greater than that. Feeding
sheep and lambs have not shown as much
advance as have killers, but they are
safely CooOc higher, and, in some cases

CATTLE While there were not us many
cars of rattle here yesterday as there
were on the big day, September 14, the
official recount showed that ther were
12.U6 head, which exceeded tiie number
received on the big day laat month by 174
head. In other words, the receipts of cat
tle yesterday were the largest fur the year
to date; in fact, they were the largest of
any time since October 20 of laat year,
wru-n 12,871 head were received.
On top of yesterday'a big run there was
another large run today. To make the ait
uatlon still worse for the selling Interests
other market pointa were reporting large
receipts for Tuesday, with pricea every
where quoted considerably lower. Under
such circumstances it waa not surprising
that buyera here were inclined to hold off
waiting for newa from other pr.iiita before
attempting to do very much buainesa. The
result waa that the market was late In
opening, the ssine as yesterday, with the
trade dull and the feeling weak right from
When buyers and aellers finally got down
to business the best kinds of range beeves
did not show much change, prices looking
about on a par with yesterday. On th
other hand, the common to medium kinds
were slow to 'a little lower all round.
Cowa and heifers were In very fair de
mand and the market waa generally ateady
on that kind uf cattle. A peculiarity of
the trade was that the common to medium
kinds seemed to be In Just about as good
demsnd a the better grades and sold Just
as freely st the prevailing prices.
Strlrtly good feeders were sought after
and the market on that kind did not show
much change. There aeemed tn be a very
fair demand for the kinds rsrrylng flesh.
On the other hand, the msrket was very
slow and dull on the common to medium
kinds and prices were again a little lower.
