t'HICAOO. Oct. SS.-Weakness of the
V:tiropen grain marketa had a depresalng
effect today on the local market, final quo
tations showing net losses Of 4 to tT4C
t:rn was firm, oats steady and provisions
With the exception of a brief period early
In the day, the wheat market waa Inclined
to be weak, and at the close prlca were
almost at the bottom. Influenced by de
c!:nea at European grain centers, the mar-sri-t
opened easy, with prices 4-4c to H4c
below yesterday's close. Within the first
ten minutes, however, prices had been run
up about half a cent on active buying by
commission houses and pk traders, which
was baaed on a portion of a dispatch from
Argentina regarding the amount of damage
to the growing wheat crop by the recent'
frosts. According to first versions of this
dispatch, the damage waa estimated at
a limit 40 per cant of lha total crop. Later,
when it became known that the 40 per cent
leferred onky to one district and the dainuge
to the entire crop was no more than had
been previously entlmated. a great muny of
the early buyers turned sellers, which
caused a quick decline. During the re
inumder of the day the market continued
weak and before the decline wa checked
prices had dropped approximately one cent
troin the high point of the day. Wet
weather in the aouthwest Inspired some Bell
ing throughout the entire session. Rains
were HKuln general In the winter wheat belt
west of the Mississippi river and snow was
reported In Nbrasaa and western Iowa,
but the precipitation east of the Mississippi
river was atlll a negative quantity. Re
ceipts of wheat In the southwest showed
some falling off, but the movement in the
northwest was still liberal. Exporters
tlHlmed an absence of export buslnesa hera
or at the seuboard. but the actual clear
nnea of former sales were liberal, being

The following Is a list of the cities:
NEW YORK, Oct. 23. There were many
cross currents in the movement of stock
quotations today, but none of them was
very w4du. The tone was unsettled and
confused In consequence. The dominant
Influonee In oVternilnli g the altitude of the
professional traders town d the market was
the action of the handful of prominent
stocks which have been the leaders of the
market throughout the sumrrer. In these
It was rather ebvajua that the price move
ment war restrained by encountering orders
oppoied to the movement before It had run
far. An advance In the price attracted
selling pressure, while ny recession
brought In buying orders sufficient to
cherk the decline.
The selling developed each time at about
the price where dealings yesterdaj left off.
Such a movetnet.it suggests a feeding out
of stcck to take profits, with careful sup
tort asserted when the selling makes any
Impression on the price. It was partlou
larly notable In the two Harrlman Faclfics,
et. Paul, the two Hill railroads and Read
ing. It was the cause of the final decline
and weak closing. At the same time there
was some positive strength shown at other
points which served as a sustaining force
againat the current of the profit-taking.
The copper Industrials were a prominent
Instance. This group. Including the mining
and smelting stocks, war helped bv the
rews from the coppi r metal market. Prices
were advanced agnlr- at tho New York
Metal exchange and It was reported that
sowiethlng like excitement was beginning
to be shown In the buying by consumers
of copper. In American Sugar nleo there
was the effect of trade deve!opment,
grades of refined sunsr having risen In the
qui tailons. Cnlted States Steel, while mov
ing moderately, touched tfie high price of
the year at 4t4. on September S, the day
before the list quarterly dividend was de
ducted, the stock touched the same quota
tion. The quarterly report of the carpora
tlon Is to be published next Tuesday and
the speculation Is Inclined to assume a
favorable showing as to earnings and un
filled orders on hand. Reports of Intended
purchases of equipment bv railroad com
panies are In favor of the steel stocks also.
An advance In traction shares was at
tributed to the result of the election In
Cleveland agairjit the 3-cent fare fran
chlse, as an Indication cf the drift of public
sentiment on the question of restrictions
on public utilities corporations.
The general news events of the day had
little reflection In the stock market. For
eign markets showed some revived un
easiness over the reported hitch In the
negotiations for a settlement between
Turkey and Bulgaria. London sold some
stocks In this market and there was an
early upward movement In the exchange
rate. The promise of a amall gain In rash
by the banks as a result of tho week's
currency movement was a corroliratlor
of laat week's evidence that the present
interior requirement for currency had been
appeased. '1 here was a slight discount on
New York exchange at Chicago todav. how.
in advance ever, which Is the first time this week. The
falling this money market remains In a tranquil state.
Announcement mat hearings will be
begun next month In the government suit
to annul the merger of the railroads under
Harrlman control served as a reminder of
such a suit, which loomed large at one
time In the speculative view, but which
has long been lrst sight of.
The week's exports showed a heavy move,
ment of grain. what with flour. 1U27.926
bu.. ag against 4.45S.027 last week, while
there was a Jump In corn exports to 181,417

CATTLE There were only a few cars of
cattle reported In this morning and ao far
aa could be observed very few wanted. The
trado was very slow and dull throughout
tha morning, no one being very anxious
for supplies of any kind. The fact Is the
market yesterday wound up In very bad
shape with prices, In the language of the
yards, "rotten." It would be a hard mat
ter to say Just how much lower cattle
did sell yesterday, but It Is safe to say
that in extheme cases declines of fully 40c
could be noted. While the very choice
cattle, of which very few are coming, have
not shown much loss, It would be very con
servative estimate to place the decline
on tha general run Of a fair to pretty good
steers at 25c as compared with last week
Cows and heifers have declined fully aa
much. A good many feeders are still In
the hands of speculators and are selling
anywhere from 25c to 50c lower than were
paid for them at the beginning of the week.
It would seam as If any one wanting a
cheap bunch of feeders could find pretty
nearly anythlny that they might want In
the speculative division at the present time.
