NEW TORK. Nov- 7 Thn excitement In
the speculation was maintained today, as Is
Itnessed by the transactions of nearly
l.ooo.otio shares during the two hours' ses
sion. The list of different Issues deslt in
Is an unusually large one, thus testlfylr
to the variety and breaulih of the market
The dealings In fsct, gave many signs of
a widespread buying feyer. such as breaks
out in rwrioda of a great bull market.
The character of the attendance In h rov
ers' offices. snd the floating discussion In
the financial district showed this also. The
aigestive power of the market Itself was 1
(he best Illustration of this condition.
Enormous realising sales were made from
time to time by the wary professional ele
ment ss has come Into the market to take
good care of Itaelf. But Jhe flood of buying
ordera was uninterrupted snd the specula
tive appetite gave no evidence of being ap
peased. It waa stimulsted by the roste
ylews of the Industrial outlook contained
In published reports of great orders placed
for commodities, wholesale resumptions by
mills and sudden activity In commercial
lines. Thene reports wers borne out. In
part, by the more sober and detailed can
vass of the commercial agencies, whose
weekly reports testified fully to the re
vival In progress. In the case of some de
tailed reports railroad orders bn an enor
mous scale for new equipment and other
outlay, there came specific denials. A
lively effect on the speculation was caused
by the belief that the railroads of the coun
try were embarked upon a concerted at
tempt toward higher freight charges. The
temporary injunction granted against the
enforcement of the Interstate Commerce
commission for reduction of Missouri river
rates fed the conviction that the railroads
re to have a freer hand In fixing charges.
Some effect on prices was mads In the
second hour by the extensive realising
sales, but new points of strength were de
veloping where the market cloaed In great
animation. The sharp reduction In the
banking surplus was predicted before the
market closed, although th statement was
not published until afterwards.
The bond market was active and strong.

CHICAGO, Nov. 7. Fears that the entire
winter wheat crop has Jieen seriously dam
aged hy drouth caused an advance of more
man lc per basnet In wheat prices on tne
local exvuangn today, and flnul quotations
Mhnwed net gains of IvlHc. Corn, oats
and provisions were also strong.
Anxiety among wheat trudnra concerning
the new corn crop was aroused by ih
Aihlo stats report, which was made uiiblio
yxaterday ana which showed a serious de
terioration . In the fTowing crop in tout
. state Owing to lack of moisture. A local
crop expert In a report published today
maintained that the Ohio report was only
a forerunner of many similar pronounce
ments, and the' December government re-
fort would show that new sown wheat In
ndlana, Michigan, Illinois, Tennessee and
Kentucky whs In the poorest condition re
corded In many years. It was slso claimed
that the condition of the crop in Missouri,
. Kansas and Oklahoma woulu be found to
be very low. As a result of these advice
and owing to sharp advances at th prin
cipal European centers, demand for wheat
here waa urgent all day and prices ad
vanced steadily throughout th entire ses
sion. Demand for cash wheat here showed
some improvement and prices were a trifle
higher for the best grades, while low grades
were rather weak. The market closed
strong at almost the best prices of the day,
with December at !.1S and May at 31. (ft.
Clearances of wheat and flour were equal
to 4u4,W) bit. Primary receipts were 1,149,00
bu., compared with G&A.OOO bu. the corres
ponding day a year ago. Minneapolis, Du
luth and Chicago reported receipts of Ktl
crs, against HA cars last week and 4-14 cars
a year ago.
Local hulls were actlv.e bidders for corn
today and as a result the market was firm
all aay. The buying was baaed chiefly on
the continued small receipts dessiite the fa
vorable conditions for the movement of
the new crop. Advices from the country
stated that farmers were not willing to
sell their corn at present prices. The ad
. vance In wheat also Inspired some !(mand.
The market closed strung with prices up H
JHc. with December at lalc and My
at 66z'62Vlc. almost the top point of the
season. Local receipts, Wi cars, with 2 of
Oat were firm on fair demand by rash
'houses. The market closed firm, with
prices c to 46c higher. Final quotations
on December were tKHJUffc. and on May,

CATTLE! There were no cattl here to
day to make a market and for the week the
mcelpts have shown a very heavy falling
off as well, as will be noted from the
figures st head of column. Receipts look
small even as compared with last week's
unusually light run.
Under the influence of a good buying de
mand, coupled with bght receipts, prices
this week hsve steadily strengthened up
ana tne market, as a whole, has been In
a very satisfactory condition as viewed
from a seller's standpoint. More cornfeds
ar arriving as the season advancea and
as the supply of westerns diminishes, they
are selling to better advantage. Anything
ai an accent can be quoted 26c higher for
the week, but as most of the cattle have
been on the common to fair order there
has been nothing upon which quotations
can be advanced on paper. Range beeves
have sold very freely all the week, and
they are aafely 2d40c higher than last
week s close.
All desirable grades of cows and heifers
nava teen free sellers every dsy this week
snd they are at the close, 26340c higher
than last week. Common grades, gen
erally known aa canners, have not parti
cipated to any great extent In the advance,
that kind being rather dull most of the
week, but still price have been well main
tained and they are now possibly a trifle
hlghor than last week's clos.
Feeders hive been- In good demand
throughout the week, and while they, too,
have aold higher, It will be remembered
that prices on that kind of cattlo were
pretty well up last week, so that there was
not room for quite so much advance as
for beef csttle. While some kinds might
show more advance, generally speaking,
the foeder market Is lVo'JSc higher than
last week and the trade in a good healthy

HoOS Receipts of hogs this morning
were small, as they have been all the week,
but In spit of that fact th market was
slow In getting stsrted and It was at no
time very lively. The best hogs sold from
pretty nesrly steady to 6c lower, with the
close slow rind weak. Cimmon, light ho
were poor sellers throughout the morning
at bottom prices. The most of the hog
sold at t3.7(X(i6.HO, and on up to 35.96.
Receipts of hogs this week have been
slightly higher then last week and week
before, but still the run has been very
moderate. Prices advanced steadily durlr
the early part of the week, reaching the
high point of the week on Wednesday,
when the market on an average waa 0c
higher than the close of the previous
week. During the latter half there has
been a downward tendency, so that at
Hie close the nuuket ! only 510c higher

8HEKP- Receipts of sheep this .week
l.ave been light, but r.o lighter than was
vntictpnteil. Reports at th beginning of
the week allowed that there were oniy a
few rangers on the road, and It ia yet
too early to expect very many cornfeds.
v, Ith receipts lighter snd with the de
mand very good, the market on killers
strengthened up until at the close of th
we.k fat sheep and lambs are safely 2S4f
40c higher than one week ago. More than
that, the demund hne been very good at
the advanced futures and everything re
ceived has met a lib ready sale.
Feedere, both sheep snd lamb", havs
been active aelUra all the Week, but the
market en that kind waa high last week,
so that comperatlveli; little change has
taken place In pricey this week. The
innrket, to Bay the least, h:is been strong
and sctlve throughout and er.llrely satis
factory to the sellers.
As has been slated before In these col
umns, the demand for warmed-up sheep
snd lsmhs is never good at this sraxnn
of the year, and packers will only buy
stuff of that kind when conielUd to hy
a shortage of tho more desirable grades.
Hence it follows that they discriminate
very sharply sgainst it, and shlpers who
send in either sheep or lambs that are
not ready for market must expect to re
ceive a mean pi H e.
All prospects would seem to favor th
belief that light runs will continue during
th coming week.
