There was a derided change of sentiment
In, the wheat nit at the opening toduy from
at manifested at the previous close. The
wKft. cloard yesterday In a flurry of
buying bused on sensational report of
Uumige to the Argentina crop, but at the
opening today many of yesterday' buyers
were In a tamietle to sell owing to fresh
advices from Argentina which were less
bullish than prvvtous report. The failure
of the Liverpool market to respond to-
the advuuee here yealerdav also Inspired
fvcr selling. Price at the Btart were
6tWc to c lowor and before the end of
the first hour further declines of about

early activity, the market lecame dull
nd trading continued quiet the remainder
nf th session. Prices aiso failed to rally
from the early weakness and the market
closed at ulmiwt the bottom point, with
December at $1 and May at $1.034,. There
whs only a moderate demand for cash

According to a local export concern, there

NEW YORK. Oct. 81. -The day s stock

movement on the purt of speculative hold
ers to get out of their holdings on the eve
of the presidential election. It Was the
supposition of olwervers In the neighbor
hood of the stork exchange that this move,
ment came trotn the lesser following of
the powerful suet ulative leaders who hm-A
controlled tho recent market.
1 he notion waa tiromntpd hv oneorlulr.lv
over tlie posltinn and Intentions of the apec
ulative leaders. They are credited with
holding most of the floating market sup

supplied wltii cheap credits to hold theni.
Their ability to nut prices to a Mir her
level after the election, thrrofnr l. n,.
doubted. The extent to which a general
day from outside sources for stocks will bs
Biiriieica is what Is doubted. It was this
ooum that prompted the cleaning up of
speculative accounts which was In progress
uiiny in continuation of the similar move
ment yesterday. The circulation of re
ports of the closing out of some very
heavy accounts In Cnlted States Steel yes

tendencv. Sales for Ivondon account were

the occasion. News was not much attended

showing increases In gross earnings and
heavy cuts In operating costs. It was con
sidered that the strength of these returns
would opernto against the attempt credited
to the railroads to bring about a general
advance In freight rates after the elections.
The lank statement presented no great
surprise. The excess over the preliminary
estimates of the cash losses reappeared. In

CATTLE There was nothing In the
yard to make a market today and re
ceipts have been very light all the week.
The total, as will be noted from the table
above, has been a little more than half as
large as last week's large receipts and
very much smaller than a year ago. The
arrivals have constated almost entirely of
Not enough cornfed steers have put 111
an appearance this week to make a test
of values, but what few have arrived have
sold quite readily at very satisfactory
figure. The fact 1 receipt of rangers
have been free sellers throughout th week
packers have been forced to pay more at
tention to cornfeds. There wa a fair de
mand for desirable range beef and the
market ait the close I 15cji26c higher than
the close of last week so far as the better
grades are concerned. This, however, does
not any more than make up for the de
cline last week. Common and Inferior
grades have been slow sale all the week.
The better grades of cows and heifers
have been free sellr throughout the week
and price on such are safely 26c higher
than last week's close. This practically
wipes out the decline of last week. On the
other hands canners and all Inferior kind
of cow atuff have been alow sellers, with
very little Improvement in prices. The life
and activity which ha characterized the
tanner trade for some weeks back has to
a great extent disappeared.' The tendency
at the present time Is to widen the range
between common canners and good to
Blocker and feeders were very active
sellers during the early part of the week
and prices advanced sharply. At the close
some little weakness has been developed,
as is very apt to be the case at the end of
the week In that branch of the trade. Still
prices are safely l&'ul&c higher than the
low point last week.
