liberal realizing acalea materially reduced
the galna, final quotatlona showing ad
vances of He to 4CuHc. Corn, oat and pro
vision closed easy.
The wheat market opened excited and
, strung with price HaC higher than the
previous close. The unsettled political situ
ation In Europe had aroused intense bullish
enthusiasm in the local market and the
demand for that cereal at the opening was
extremely active, within the flrat few min
utes the December delivery hod advanced
' to 11.01 H and the Hay option to tl.04,
after opening at ILCHo'l-OlH to f l.OItt,
respectively. A decline In the price of
British consols snd higher prices for wheat
at Liverpool added to the fears of a possi
ble European wsr. At the same time the
market waa bulllshly affected by the con
' tlnued drouth In the American southwest
' and In other section of the winter wheat
belt. During the first hour trading waa of
a boisterous character, but at tho end of
that time a lull came in the buying and
with enormous reallaing sale prices grad
ually eased off until they were below the
opening quotatlona. The market, howover,
exhibited no signs of weakness, being
buoyed up by the urgent demand for flour
and cash wheat in tho northwest. Trade
during the laat hour was comparatively
quiet and the market closed firm, with

Oats were firm early In the day, but

Influenced chierly by wheat and corn.

Market Closes with row
NEW TORK, Oct . The war cloud over
eastern Europe was the principal topic of
consideration and Influence still, although
the tenter of the resulting disturbance 1n
the securities shifted somewhat. The ef
fect in New York was modified to some
extent by counter factors. Today's condi
tion In the London market were described
In cables to Wall atreet a most psnlcky.
Foreign exchanges all turned strongly In
favor of London, the movement being most
marked here, but notable also at Berlin
srj'l Paris. The pries of British consols
vnt down a full point at one time during
tie day and other government securities in
London were acutely depressed. The Liv
erpool wheat market also waa greatly
perturDea. xne mobility or the British
fleet In the Mediterranean waa the direct
cause of this awskenlng of apprehension in
London itself, that movement aeemlnc to
threaten -the Immediate entry of - Oreat
uruam into tn lleia oc warlike prepara
tion. Tho direct effect on tho New Tork mar
ket waa much the same aa vesterdav and
estimates of ths number of shares sold for
foreign account ran close to those of yes
terday. The response wa even mors pro
nounced tn the foreurn exohanre market.
The tone of sterling exchange was called
demoralised, so much so that bankers
were disinclined to undertake any drawing
In view of the seeming Imminence of goid
output. The barrenness of this supply of
bill was responsible as well as the strength
of tho demand for til a movement of ex
change. Demand for sterling rose at one
time 60 points over the close yesterday
and remittance by cable were about as
mucn atiected. The local stock market
was helped by the strength of Rock Island
and the Harrlman Issues, which wa due
to tne significance attached to the an
nouncement of th provision for the $7,0i),
0U0 St Louis & San Francisco notes matur
ing on December 1. A favorable effect on
sentiment was to b expected from this
relief from threatened embarrassment of
an extended railroad system, especially with
the assurance Implied that next year's
neavy not obligations or the same system,
amounting to over 823.O0O.O0O. would be
similarly taken 'care of In due course. Oood
prospects for a permanent refunding of this
indebtedness waa Inferred from this de
velopment. But the SDeculatlve element
rushed to far wider Implications from ths
fact that the provision for these notes
was announced by the banker who finance
all the Important Harrlman transactions
ana not by the firm closest to the Rock
Island management. A new direotlon for
Mr. Harrlman'a supposed complex project
was thus indicated to the speculative con
jecture, iius accounted lor the promt
nence of Union Pacific, Erie, Missouri
Pacific and such Dronertles as Mr. Har
rlman has been credited with designing
tor nis neipiui ministrations.
A the money market remained tranaull
no attention was paid to the estimates of
a cash outgo for the week of over $3,000,
000. Not only In the stock market, but also
In foreign exchange, In British consols and
In wheat there was reaction from the day'a
most violent extreme. Final prices of
stock. In fact, show little change from
those of the day before.
Bonds were weak. Total sales, par value.
United States bond war unchanged on

CATTLE) Only thirty-seven car of cat
tle were reported toaay, which wa not
enough to maae any snowing on Uie mar
ket or to Interest buyers to any material
extent The teehng, however, was about
steady and what liule stulf there was gen
erally sold in about tne same noicuoeai
voatarduv. Tim trail, as usual Oil a FtI'
uay, was dull and unlnlorestlng, with no
new features worth menllonuig.
For tuo week the receipts have been very
liberal, being about on a par with tho run
a year ago, but considerably larger than
last wee.. A feature or me weea s
ciita was the fact that the arrival con
sisted largely of feeders, with a small pro
portion of killing cattle. It will be re
membered that during the greater part of
amt nmnth It aoomnd US if ttia SnOBt Of the
cattl coming were killers, with only a
mall aprinaling or leeoer. xium
Not nough cornfed beeve have arrived
this week to really maks a test of the
, !,, m,A tha tjv thut have nut In an
appearance have naturally enough sold
vory unevenly, the pric depending very
largely upon how badiy packers war In
need of something of that kind on that par
ticular day. Strictly good to choice range
beeves hav also been in vory moderate
supply and th few cattle good enough to
bring $5.00 or better have old at about
steady prices all th week, a high a $o-
being paid for the best. On tho other hand
there has been a very liberal supply of
common to medium cattle and as feeder
buyer have not been bidding up so well on
.i,. itinera wem arlven an opportunity
to buy thera lower. Cattle of that de-
acription are around 25c lower for the weea,
'cowr'and'for. were a little lower the
first of th week, but they gradually firmed
up under the influence of the very god
buying demand and at the close of th
week are not very much different from
what they Were a week ago. In tact most
buyei and sellers are qujtlng the market
steady. A feature of the week s trade in
tow tuff Is the very good demand that ha
prevailed for th common to meuiuiu n-nm
which have sold Just as readily at prevail
i ..ri,.u. havaj tha best trades.
Strictly good duhorned feeders of good
weight and good breed hav not oeen very
..,..?.!,, i ,f .tin fnr tha week they are
around 16:5c lower than last week. The
flood of common to meaium inu ui oou

kind of cattle and they are at the present

SHEEP Receipt of sheen this morning
were not heavy enough to really make a
market. All told only eight cars were re-
rortd and three of them were single decks
rum nearby point. All the stuff her was
sold quite readily at prices not materially
difforcnt from those that prevailed yester
day. Thus pietty good Idaho lambs sold
up to $6.85, with western ewes as high as
$4.50 and breeding ewes at $3.75. In addi
tion to the ires 11 receipts mere were also
a few bunches carried over from yesterday,
but pretty much everything waa disponed
of in vety fair season.
KeceiDts lor tne weeK nave been ex
tremely light, showing a falling otf of a
good deal over one-half a compared with
ast weeK, in ract tne total to aate is only
about one-third as larr an Inst week's
htavy run. Under the influence of th light
reie.pt and the good buying uemand prli.es
Jumped upward at a rspid rata so far as
Killing sueep and iambs were concerned.
The market yesterday on 'lambs broke
sharply, as noted at the time, but even
alter the decline the market on killers of
all kinds is at least $1 h.gi.er than th low
tlinu a week or more ago.
feeder have also suuwn considerable
improvement, but not so much as killers.
There Was a feeling among feeder buyers
mat taking the Dries ot corn and the
future outlook for fat stuff into considera
tion, th market on feeders waa al
ready high enough and they hav accord'
lngiy opposed every advance In prices. It
s also a noticeable fact that as prices
gradually firmed up the buying demand
steaully eased off until it became pretty
dull, but still there vfua sufficient
demand to take everything coming
and price at the cloae of tbe week are
2oo and in some cases possibly as much as
400 higher on the general run ot feeding
sheep and lambs.
