CHICA3i Nov.; 4.-Rep6Tta ' of unfavor
able weather for the new crop In Argentina
caused a Saharp- bulge In wheat prices on
the local exchange today, but all of the
advance waa loat on profit-taking, prices
at tho close being unchanged to a shade
lower compared wun Monday s nnai quota
tion. Corn closed weak. Provisions were
ateadv and oata atrnnv.
Tha advance in wheat occurred on Initial
transactions, the price eatabllahed in the
first few mlmites of trade being the high
est of the session.' Prices at the start were
up iftla compared with the clone of ihe
frevlous day and after holding neither near
he hlglv mark for a" time they gradually
declined and at the close were at the low
point of the day. . Dfcember closed at 99c
and May-at Jl. 03. The bulge at the start
followed rf advance of nearly Sd at Liver
pool, whleh wss due mainly to reports from
Argentina Which stated that the weather
there waa cold and wet. Several leading
bulls were active- buyers and this started
urgent covering iy shorts. After the first
half hour the market lost Its buoyancy
owing to later dispatches from Argentina
which mlnltrflsed to some extent the unfa
vorable conditions In the country. One re-
- port cl timed that a statement given out
ly government officials estimated th wheat
acreage damage at 11 per cent of the total
acreage anrV If the weather continued favor
able tha total crop will be about tha same
as last year, s Export new waa favorable
to tha botlai a Wye-lien t demand being tci
ported al'luluth ana Winnipeg, ' where
foity-ftve boatloada were taken for ship
ment abroad. Clearances of wheat and
flour were equal to WI.OUO bushels. The
world's visible supply as shown by Brad-
atreet's Increased 1,643,(00 bushels. Primary
rec pts, ,(KS,oOO bushels, compared with
1.886,000 bushels tho corresponding day a
year ago. M.nneapolla, Duluth and Chi
cago reported receipts of 1,170 cars, against
6&1 cara laat week and 635 a year ago.
The advance In wheat caused a firm
oienUttro, pwn, but the market soon weak

L A, WKLHH,
NEW YORK, Nov. 4-iThe'stock market
today demonstrated a striking capacity for
reaching a conclusion beyond a prevailing
asiumptlor-. It bad- been bolnted out with
great precision by a multitude of advisers
what the -exact conrae of thw mock market
following the election-would be.- There was
to be an Immediate bulge irfrlces, helped
by manipulative-tactics on the part of the
po erf ul - backers of the movement, thus
making the new outside buyers pay tha
highest -prices for their stocks and giving
the largest profits to the Inside sellers.
Afterwards the pressure' of realising sales
would Inevitably tell on .the price level ani
a -sharp reaction must "lie expected until
tho gathering ol forces sufficient to resume
an upward movement. -
The extent nf the- advancen ' Established
for Americans in London beforu trading
began In New YO'.-lf today confirmed this
view in the minds of jnaiy operators in
stocks nd they acted In accordance with
this view. So11I.-.l' from these sources waa
in aucn .volumes, in fat, that -few -or tne
opening 'prices here 'were as high as they
urnn ueen in ix.nooni- earner, jneteaa ot
advancing after the ' opening-the market
gave way slowly and on a voturoa-of sales
which has not been seen before this year.
It waa the subsequent r.ctlon of the- market
that belied the common opinion. After a
momentary pause at the end cf the first
hour, when the buying order soemed to
have been exhausted and prices were quite
generally a point below the opening high
level, there developed an Impressive r.ew
demand. The buying for the ret of the
day was persisted and determined and
rargeo over a wide field of choice In the
list of stocks. The dimensions of the orders
executed In this movement gave evidence
of transactions by. operators of the lnrcest
resources. Apparently great sutlsfactli
Was felt over the digestive power shown by
i" maraei in tne profit-taking period of
the first hour, and the profit-takers then
were believed to be amongt the largest
buyers on the resumption of the advance.
Having brought the market to tho verge
of the election period at practically the
usiiT-ai ievei 01 me year ana tacked on a
Buoyant additional rise at the opening to
dayt and having corjserved most of this
advantage after effWtlnir a v.r, uh.tnn.
tlal realisation of profits, banking interests
mm large capitalists seemed to come back
Into the market with great confidence. The
sentiment of the couMry as expressed in
the elections was construed as favorable
to capital and as opposed to radical re
adjustments of establiHhed methods or re-
iniuuo uciween capital- and labor and capN
tal, employment. A spirit of hearty cc.
operation for upbuilding amongst the
wealth producing forcea was Inferred, not
alone from the general result, but from the
various details of the election outcome.:
U? i.outbur' of speculative enthusiasm
whlqh resulted proved " a surprise to the
most careful observers.
Beyond the election news there waa nol
much of Immediate consequence in the
news to account for the day's doings. It
is generally expected that some Important
measures of corporation finance will be
undertaken before long and funda thus
aecured for furtherance of prelects of con
struction. The placing of a $5,000,000 con
tract by the Pennsylvania company for
electrical equipment Was accepted as an
Index of confidence.
veTllVl"ln.Jton0, thft etock market was
very animated and buoyant and lust prices
were close to the highest of the day. That

CATTLE Receipts of cattle this morning
numbered oniy 133 cars, wnlch was small
for this tima of the week, but no smaller
than was anticipated for the day after
election. For the three days the receipts
foot up only 8.464 head, as against 13,0.3
head fur the same days last week and 27,-
633 head two weeks ago.
there were quite a good many warmed
up or half-fat corn-feu steers among the
receipts today, and as cattle of that kind
have been selling pretty high, it was not
surprising that the market on that kind
tuoay was a trifle sticky. As a matter of
course, it is a difficult matter to tell very
much about warmed up cattle, whether they
are nigner or lower,' out the reeling today
waa certainly no higher. There were only
lew westerns in .sight, but they com
manded good steady prices.
.. cows and-helpers were-in aetlve flpfnanq
and the market on the desirable kinds Was
anywhere from steady to 10c -higher or Itxtf
100 nigner for tne two days.
uoou reaers were free sellers at prices
that were at least 10c higher than yester
day, but holders of common and Inferior
stulf complained hat there - was no great
demand for that kind.

IRON TRADE BECOMES ACTIVE
Buying;. Movement Develops In Pig-
iron Where Prices Have Been
NEW YORK. Nov. 4. The Iron Age will
say tomorrow: It is yet too early to
measure 4he effect of the election upon the
iron and allied industries, which must, of
nnnrs inrtlelnate In the fruits of the en
couragement of enterprises In all directions
which Is generally expected to follow. That
consumption of Iron and metals will In
crease Is conceded by all, and that buying
for the future and ror stocxing up may oe-
velop In considerable proportions is ex
rwwtAd hv manv.
Tn Ihms branches in which low prices
have been ruling an almost violent buying
movement may develop. There are some
indications of it In pig Iron. In other
branches, including almost the entire series
of finished products in which prices have
been more or less successfully maintained
during the last year, there la little in
ducement to anticipate, future require
ments. Chicago reports an active market for pig
Iron, with sales aggregating about 50,000
tons, which Includes one block of 20,000
Inm tn an agricultural Implement Interest,
The bulk of the whole business was taken
by northern furnaces, whose prices are
relatively lower In that district than the
prices of the southern producers. Cin
cinnati estimates that the amount of iron
sold through that market footed up 75.000
tons. There has been some good selling
In New England and in the Buffalo dis
trict. Our Cleveland correspondent notes
salos in. that district during the week of
about 40,000 tons of foundry Iron, with
large Inquiries penning, among wnicn is
one for 27.WO tons rrom a pipe snop.
From all quarters come the report of
very lare inquiries and close testing of
the markets by large and small consumers
for delivery, not only during tne uaiance
of the year, but also for the first and sec
ond quarters or ia.
The production of pig Iron during Oc
tober, exclusive of charcoal iron, was
1.663.483 tons, a gain over Septemlwr of
145,000 tons. The dally rate was 60.434 tona.
against 47,300 tona during September. We
enter November with 200 blast furnaces In
oneration, whose capacity is rated at 862,
685 tons, a gain of 12 furnaces In numher
and of close to 25,000 tons weekly in ca
pacity. Foreltrn Financial.
LONDON, Nov. 4. Money was more plen
tiful and easy on the market today and
discounts were weaker. American securi
ties monopolised the attention on the Stock
exchange.- Dealings started at 7:46 on. the
street at from 1 to 2 points above yester
terduy'a -quotations on the election of Mr.
Tafl. The buying came from America-and
was chiefly In Amalgamated Copper, United
Wales- Is nee I and Union Pacific. Large
blocks of the laat named securities changed
bands. Prices advanced and although Eng
lish and continental houses sold on the rise.
Wall street absorbed offerings Wt.lls Values
dropped In tha afternoon from V to 1 point
from -the hest, pending the receipt-el -the
Wall street' opening. When the opening did
come it cauaed another decline, but New
York supported the market later and this
made' this close unchanged at 1 ?oint
higher than yesterday. The tone, however,
was easy. In other directions the market
was dull and easy.
SUICIDE, SAYS CORONER'S JURY
Ballets Fonnd In Walla of tilrl'e
Room Do Not Tnset tha
Death from a gunshot wound Inflicted by
herself with .suicidal intent was the verdict 6
of the coroner's Jury in; the case of Mary
Weisel, who shot herself In the heart Mon
day night at .1066 Oeorgla avenue, . where
she was boarding. . Dementia is supposed to
have caused her to take her life. "
Testimony by Emma 8telnhofeI, who ttept
the boarding house where Miss Weisel was
staying, and by Jonathan Edwards, E. E.
Lemon and A. E. Shaver, other boarders
at the house, brought out the fact that the
woman : shot herself only -once, the bullet
entering-the, .breast,, Mr. fidwarda was the
only person who - heard the snots fired.
There were three, and as twq, of the Bui
lets lodged in the wall of ceiling,- It Is be
lieved that Miss Weisel . fired them In an
effort to learn how the revolver worked,
the last shot being the' one intended for
herself. , . . ,;
This theory of the shooting, necessitated
by the dlsprovaj of eaiiy reports that.. three
bullets had entered her breast,, seems quite
feasible, as It waa known that Miss Weisel
was unacquainted with firearms. Another
revolver than the one used was alao found
in the room where the tragedy ocourred '
and a letter said that she had provided two
weapons In order to make sure of being
able to do the deed without the interven
tion of persons in the house, thinking that
one of the suns might be found missing
and searched for. ', ' ' ; ,,, '
That the, woman was subject to alight
mental derangement and was of a slmble
and easily affected dispositionwas estab
lished by testimony at tha ' Inquest and by
a statement by John Weisel, father of tha
dead woman. The latter says that Jokes,
suggestive postal cards and' many other
things that' would have' been Ignored or
taken in their proper light' by most girls,
seriously affected his daughter on aocount
of her high-strung nature. , He believes
that brooding over her troubles, both real
and Imaginary, led hereto, take her life,
and states that there.wos.no lova story
responsible for her deed, i ... ,
Coroner Brewer will send the letter!
found with the . body , to the persons to
whom they are addressed, without Investi
gating what they contain.. The young
woman's father will take the body to the
home at Beemer, Neb., Wednesday after
noon, where the . funeral . -will be held
