The bulge In wheat followed a weak
opening and was the occasion of marked
activity In the wheat pit. Trade, in the
July delivery was especially heavy, owi.tg
to a statement here among ahorts. who
bought freely during the laat half of the
session, aa a result of report from Texas
and southern Illinois telling of Injury to
inw iiihiQwn crop. Aiwnrf or rain dur
ing the winter months was said to have
caused considerable deterioration in the
condition of the wheat crop in Texas. A
revived demand for the caiih grain helped
the May delivery. Local sale for the day
aggregated 123,"10 bu., the great bulk of
. w hlph waa red winter wheat. The market
opened rather weak, with price unchanged

NF.W YORK, March 2 A contest for ad
vantage between trie piofessional factions
In the speculation made tip the stock mar
ket almost altogether today. Another ad
vance in the price of t "fined copper boiu
in London and at the New York Metal ex
change was regarded a confitmatoiy of
report of an improved lemand. The ex
tent of that demand was subject of dispute
an.l the priijr movement was looked upoa
with some eirpressed suspicion of manipula
tion. The belief Is strong that when the j
decline In the metals has reached its limits,
there will bs a large waiting demand de
veloped which will lead to early trade re
vival. The lack of faith In the effectiveness
of the recovery In copper waa indicated by
the languid movement of the copper in
dustrials in ronnei tlon with the news. Re
ports from the steel trade also indicated
that the cut In prices had brought out
some orders, but the amount was declared
to be small.
The effect on sentiment was offnet by the
announcement of the posting of wage re
duction In the Iickawanna Steel works nt
Buffalo, the news having a somewhat
ominoua Infljence. The wage question re
ceived additional consideration by renson
of the statement published In behalf of the
anthracite operators. The special weakne?
of Krie waa due to the application to the
Public Service commission for modification
of the terms permitted for the proposed
bond Issue. The Union Pacific and South
em Pacific's net earning etstementa for
January were utilized to push the rally,
but the movement was totally without
enthusiasm. The small gain In gross earn
ings of t'nlon Pacifio and the actual de
crease for Southern Pacific offer qutstlon
ahle ground of satisfaction. In. view of the
severe depression of earnings last year,
with which the comparison is made. Reduc
tion In operating coat, also, was more mod
erate than for some recent months. Except
I In a few eouthern railroads, the roads that
far reporting show an Increase In the ex
pense item, compared with January of last
year, with corresponding modification of
the increase In net earnings. This incresse
in expense In severs! cases was so con
siderable as to overwelgh th gross Increase
nd make the net return less than even the
meager return of January last year. Can
adian Pacific. Chicago 4 Northwestern and
Missouri. Kansas & Texas were case in
point. Strength In Individual minor stocks
waa a sustaining influence in me latter
market. Hopeful expectation of the In
coming administration were also professed
by the professional buyers of stocks. The
dullness approached stagnation at times
during the day, but later advances were
Bonds were steady. Total ales, par
value, 13,680.000. V'nlted State bond were
unchanged on call.

CATTLB Receipts of catUs this mominf
were very liberal. 195 cars being reported
In. Among ths offerings were a number
ot pretty good killers, but there waa also
a good many cattle that showed a lack of
Packers all seemed to be arslr.ua for sup
plies of btef steers and the market on the
desirable grades was active and at an ad
vance of 10c over yesterday. Holders of
cattle that found favor In buyers'' eyes had
no trouble In unloading and an early clear
ance waa effected. Inferior grades did not
move off quits so freely, but they, too, sold
to fairly good advantage.
What haa been said regarding tha market
on beef steers would apply equally well to
tbe market on cows and heifers. Cattle of
that description were free sellers through
out and the offerings were disposed of at
an early hour.
No great change took place In the stock er
and feedermarket. Tbe demand for cattle
of that deacrtptlon Is none too brisk any
where, the country buying rather spar
ingly. St. 11 the market was not bad con
sidering general conditions prevailing In
other branches of the trade.

but still there was a fair run. making the
total for ths two days larger than usual.

addition to the fresh receipts there wars a
few leads betides a sprinkling of odds and

There was a fair demand and the desir
able kinds, both sheep and Ism be, sold quite
freely at steady prices. While the market
did not st any time have an active ap
pearance, still ths kinds that packers
wanted sold very freelv. Mexican lambs
sold up aa high as 17.25. wltb yearlings
up to tR8& and ewes st 1610. As regards
prices, it might be ssld that there wss
comparatively little change so far ss good
kinds were concerned, quotations on such
generally being steady. As might be ex
pected in case vt liberal receipts of yester
dsy and today, common and Inferior kinds

WASHINGTON, Msreh 1. 4rt ft mem
ber of the senate committee on Judiciary
signed ths report. declaring thst President
Roosevelt, without authority of law, eanc-
loned the absorption of the Tennessee
Coal and Iron company by the Vnited
States Steel rorpr-rstlon and that ths mer
ger was In wlolatlon of ths Srierman snti
trust lsw. Two rf the majority or the
committee, however, attached certain In
dividual views which to a degree minimise
the effect of the declsratllon.
Chairman Clark todae reported ths tlls-
sgreemont In the committee snd soon after
ward Senator Culberson presented the
views of seven members tt tbe committee.
These were signed by Senators Nelson,
Klttredge snd Foraker,' republicans, and
Culberson. Raynor. Bacon snd Overman,
The Individual views were given bjton-
stors Nelson and Bacon N In the opinion of
Mr. Nelson, the president was not, author
ised to permit ths absorption, which Is
declared to have been In violation of law.
Mr. Nelson thinks, however, thst the pres
ident may have been misled or dupjad by
the of nets It of the - Vnited Stales SHeel
Mr. Bacon expressed doubt whether tha
senate should pronounce flnslly upon the
question whether the president com mitt ed
wrongful set. for ths reason that the
senate Is Judge In Impeachment proceedings.
Ho takes the position that the merger
was Illegal, hut tha the senate should not
take any action to pre.) n dice any proceed
ings thst might hereafter bs brought be
Wowld nissolw the Wersrep.
From the report' signed snd submitted
today It sp pears that had It not bean for
the illness of Senator Bacon snd his ab
sence from the committee yesterday, the
report declaring the president acted with
out authority of lsw would hsve been
adopted. In any event. Senators Culber
son and Klttredge take the position that
a majority of the committee haa reported
that the merger was Illegal and that the
Department of Justice should proceed
against the United States Sleet corporation
to dissolve It. The disagreement on the
resolution wss placed on the calendar snd
will expire with ths close of the present
Later Senator Foraker filed tits Individ
ual views, declaring that he did not think
it necessary for ths committee to consider
whether the transaction was a violation
of tha anti-trust law. He said that the
reply of the committee should be confined
to the one Question as to whether the
president was authorised to permit the
merger and that this should be answered
In the negative. In view of the fact that
representatives of ths steel corporation
called upon ths . president, and asked his
advice concerning the transaction and that
the question also was submitted to Attor
ney General Bonaparte. Senator Foraker
took the position that thai steel corporation
should not be condemned far Its action.
