CIIICAOO. Nov. It. Liberal receipts of
wheat In the northwest and southwest
caused weakness today In the local market,
prices nt the close being down o . com
pared with the previous close. Corn and
oiits were also weak, but previsions closed
Following a slight advance, at the open
ing, the wheat market was weak the re
mainder of the day, pit trndera In general
being disposed' to sell. Offerings, however,
were held In check to some extent by con
tinued dry weather -In many parts of the
winter wheat belt and by a report which
claimed a 20 per cent decrease- In acreage
seeded til wheat this year In Kansas com
pared with the previous year. There whs
no evidence of- selling by the leading longs
and trade during the greater part of the
session Was quiet. The chief reason for the
selling - pressure was" the continued free
notment of wheat to the northwestern
and southwestern markets. Receipts at
Winnipeg today were 1.106 cars, as against
Ml on the corresponding dsy last year, and
those ati Minneapolis and Duluth were also
liberal. (At Kansas City and Bt. Louis the
arrivals j were Snore than double those of
Isst year, Thej total absence of flour trada
nlded Inj weakening the market. The close
was weak at almost the lowest figures,
final quotation on Deoember being $i'.02H
and Mavat 117. Cleararces Of wheat and
Hour were equal to G6J.O0O bu. The amount
on passage decreased 80.000 bu. The visible
supply Increased 1,134,000 bu.", compared
with a decrease of 1.61,000 bu.
Corn opened firm "eO wheat, but soon
weakened on profit-taking and continued
weak the balance of the session. Cash
houses reported that consignments from
the Interior were larger and for the first
time this season offering of corn from
Iowa to arrive were received. Prices at
the Sample tables were Ho lower and east
ern demand was very slack. The market
closed weak at the lowest point, with De
cember tj44c lower at 62c. May cloeed
Oats displayed moderate weakness In
lympathy with wheat and corn. Increased
receipts also had a weakening influence.
Demand for cash oats was alaek and prices
at the sample tables were Steady to Ho
lower. At the close December was 'o
lower at 48o. May. closed at 604c.
Enormous receipts of live hogs at west
ern packing centers caused weakness in
provisions early. In the dev. At the close
prices were 2V4o lower to 2Vic higher.

NEW YORK, Nov. 16. Mixed views over,
the speculative outlook found thetr reflec
tion In the spotty and somewhat Irregular
tone of the stock market today. The con
tents of letters and circulars from stork
commission houses show the growth of con
servatism In that element, due to the extent
and the rapidity of the advance In prices
which has occurred since the election. Point
was given to this advice by the reactionary
tone of the market at the close of last
week. The result waa the receipt of a
fair volume of selling orders from outside
sources with the opening of the week.
These selling orders came from abroad as
The origin of a good part of the foreign
orders was ascribed to Germany, where
the agitation over the Kaiser's course wss
said to bn a disturbing factor. The early
decline which these selling orders caused
gave place to recovery later. The up
ward movement was constrained and lan
guid by comparison with last week s vig
orous movements, and the prominence of
stocks of a minor grade in the rise left It
with less convincing power on sentiment
toward the market, even when It was
sought to remedy this by bringing forward
again the high grado railroad storks It was
evident that they were not so readily moved
as was the case last week.
Specific reasons for the check to the
speculative accumulation were not clear. It
was based apparently more on the general
consideration of the extent to which dis
tributions had been going on at the high
level of prices and the suspicion that with
such distribution affected the market would
enjoy less fostering care from the power
ful Interests, which have had It In con
trol all through the summer and up to the
time of the election. Attention reverted
also, to some of the incidents of last week,
which were Ignored or overcome by the
flood of the speculative demand then pre
vailing. The court decision that the American
Tobacco company Is In violation of the
Sherman anti-trust law Is receiving closer
attention, and the further study of its con
tents Intensified the impression of Its wide
scope and the sweeping application it must
have to all the great corporate formations.
M-ore attention was also given to the ques
tion of tariff revision and its probable
bearing on business activity on special In
terests. News of the government suit to
collect back taxea from the American
Sugar Refining company weakened that
stock. A decline In General Electric was
traceable to reports for orders received
and the volume of sales of the company
for the third quarter of the year, showing
so large a declino from the corresponding
quarter for recent years as to dampen
enthusiasm. This report, also, was pub
lished last week, but without effect until
today United States Steel continued to
struggle against the consideration of the
rapid rate at which It has already risen
and the statement of Its president that the
present rate of activity had grown only to
60 per cent of capacity. Another reduction
v 1utlns for copper at the New
York Metal exchange and a severe decline
in the price of London copper warrants
were accompanleed by admissions from
some of the large Interests In trade of a
lull in demand from domeirtlo consumers.
. f;' t this admission, as much as
li?1.?' .th.decllne n'elt- Aspired the feel
ing that the large Interests back of fie
stock market were prepared to countenance
a reaction. Railroad traffic officials gave
some varying accounts of the rate of Im
provements in freight carrying. The for
eign sales of stocks stiffened the foreign
u.f? "i"1"1""; b,,t the money market
was little changed. Heavy deposits Tor re

CATTLE There was a libera! run of cat
tle this morning, 2! cars being reported
in, but that was none too many to supply
the local demand without in any way weak
ening prices. Unfortunately Chicago re-
orted an excessively large run with a
reak of lOQV&c in prices. Kansas City and
all other market points also reported large
receipts and lower markets. Tne result of
the unfavorable outlook naturally produced
a vtjry weak feeling at this potnt on killers,
and it waa very late in the morning before
buyers and sellers got down to a trading
Wlille a considerable proportion of all the
cattle in the yards "consisted of feeders,
the demand wns sd good that desirable
kinds sold very freely, the market opening
eany In the morning, with prices generally
steady. The most of the offerings of that
kind of cattle changed hands in very fair
season. Common and Inferior grades were
pretty dull and weak throughout the whole
Later advices from other selling points
were still more discouraging, most of them
reporting breaks ofalacolfio, with Chicago re
porting a record breaking run and the mar
ket 1540c lower than last week's close.
Under such conditions It would bs only
natural to expect beef teers to sell lower
at this point, but with .noderate offerings
and with a good demand tho market was in
very fair condition, a good many of the cat
tle selling at or right around steady prices
and from that on down to 10d16c lower In
Cows and heifers throughout tha day
were very uneven, selling all the way from
steady to lal6c lower tlian last week. It
was not always the better grades that
sold to the best advantago either. Thus,
some salesmen figured that they got out
steady on their cannera, while other sales
men called their better grades about steady
and the common to medium kinds decidedly
lower. This simply bears out the assertion
made above that the market was very un
even: Quotations on cuttle: Good to choice

HOGS Generally sold 10c lower than Sat
urday and the trade was moderately active
at the decline, the big bulk of the receipts
changing hands in fair seaaon. A good
share of the hogs sold at and right around
5 fM(5.66. while on Saturday a good many
of the hogs brought $o.65(&8.75. The run
being light, as usual, on Monday, it did
not take buyers very long to clean up
everything in sight. Today's decline leaves
the market only a shade stronger than It
was at the beginning of last week.

SHEEP-Recelpts of sheep at this point
wero quite numerate, only 75 cars being
reported In. The arrivals consisted largely
of fueders with only a comparatively light
sprinkling of fat sheep and lambs. As Chi
cago repurted a big run wtlh early advices
ludicating a break of lOfr&c, there was

Weilern railroads are now voting In
Chicago on the proposition of keeping all
passenger rates up to 1 cents at mile In all
the territory between the great lakes and
the Rocky mountains In ths states where
the legislatures enacted the 2-cent maxi
mum passenger rats law. It Is understood
that all t,he roads have cast their votes In
favor of keeping up the rate, except four,
and these have not voted.'
When the legislatures enacted the 2-cent
laws tha railroads decided that ' as tho
peopln wanted 2 cents a mile tha top
rate. It should be the' minimum, and to that
end for a year and a half no reduced rates
were given, A break was made for the
Iowa State fair this foil snd then pressure
was brought to bear from all sides, with
the result that many fairs and big affairs
In the west had rates. Now the roads
want to revert to the old standard and
make an agreement among themselves to
refuse all requests for rates In the future
except for national conventions or some
thing big. . ,
Passenger business Is picking up all over
the country and reports of the roads for
September and October show an increase.
A further Increase Is also noticeable since
Freight business in the west also shows
an Increase. Sbme of the western roads
are really pressed for oars to handle the
Increased business which is being- moved.
While the west is showing an Increase,
some of the tines to the east are not pick
ing up as well.
Railroads In Wyoming.
Wyoming wlll.be the scene of great In
dustrial activity during- the-comlng year,
and the Indications are' that building of
railroads and other activities will far sur
pass any year In the history of that state.
It seems certain the Burlington will build
its line from the Big Horn basin to con
nect with Its line from Nebraska to Guern
sey and thus make a second through line
from the Missouri river to connect with
the greet Hill roads on the north. Tha new
line will be a great freight carrying line
because of Its water level practically all
tho way. The Union Pacific will continue
Its double-track work on the malrJ line, Is
oontemplating a branch from Wamsutter
south into Routt county, Colorado, and
probably will continue Its Broken Bow
branch by way of Wheatland to Medicine
Bow. Irrigation work will require thous
ands of laborers, and oil wells,' cement
wonts and new farms will require many
Vnlon Paelfle Officials.
The third annual meeting of the operating
officials of the Union Pacific is being held
at Denver. This meeting waa scheduled for
June, but Was postponed because of the
high water In Kansas, which kept many
of the officials from attending.
