'HIOAX, Jan. 8. A marked Improve

wheatmarket today. At the close prices
were a shade lower to V,c higher, compared
with the previous cloae. Corn and oata
closed, firm and provtstona steady.
Following a severe slump during the first
few minutes of trade, the wheat' market
1 allied sharply and continued firm the re
mainder of the day. . Tha docllna at the
start was due to general selling inspired to
soma extent ky - Uw normou movement

declined near lc In the first ten minutes
of tbo svaslon. A number of the leading
longs .then came to the rescue with vigor
ous support, which started active covering
by slmi!f.aml resulted in a full recovery..
Claim uf lurs sales of wheat to mills

The alunip In wheat caused a slight de
cline In corn pricea arly in the day, but
later settlement in the pit was bullish.
Receiving houses reported that offerings
from the country were more noerai, coijc
tlally those from lows, and that eastern
demand was leas urgent. The continued

NEW YORK, Jan. a There was a very
Irregular tone In the stock market at all
time today. Slocks whjch are often left
In an obscure position for Jong periods
were made conspicuous with successive
spurts to higher prices, but the tone of
the general list was distinctly heavy early
in the day in spite of these advances.
Eater, when the estimate of the week's
changes appeared, and partly nullified the
Impression made by the gold export en
gagements, there was some Improvement
In the general list, but weakness was gen
eral at the closing.
The Individual advances, wlUle sensa
tional to a degree, had no cause to ex
plain them. The bad effect produced by
the engagement of $2,900,000 for ahlpmont
to Pari tomorrow was due rather to Its
Indication of conditions in London than to
any direct effect apprehended In the local
money market. The movement is a meas
ure of relief for Ixindon from the Pari
demand, as yesterday' engagement for
South America was of relief from th de
mand from that source on Ixindon. The
liondon discount rate was sharply affected
today and report were received of a prob
able advance In the official discount rata
of the Bank of England and a movement
by that institution to accumulate gold.
The dimensions of the Inward movement
of cash ti the New York banks deprive
this proernyt of power to ala-m sentiment.
The treasury ha contributed $7,448,000 to
the bank thi week and the estimate
of the express movement from the interior
run to a large um. An important part of
the gain from the eubtreasury is on ac
count of redemption of national bank note
which ts also a feature of ilie movement
from the interior. The arrrint of bank
notes in the United States treasury has
risen again to over $30,000,000, the clerical
force of the department being; Insufficient
to keep up with the task of sorting them
for return to the issuing banks. The ef
fect of this 1 to find a temporary rest

packers did most of th buying and paid

at all useful In the way of butcher or beef
