Cables were WMk sjraln this morning snd
Sentiment van strongly bearish, with iifw
from all point favoring the down Bide of
the wheat market with the txeeptlon of
the receipts In northwestern markets,
which are light, owing: to the tleup by the
switchmen's strike.
Corn values are be'.ng forced lower by
heavy selling In anticipation of Increased
reoi'.lpts with the return of more favorable
weather.
Wheat started week on weak cables and
entlment was bearish on the general fa
vorable crop outlook In, all sections. The
market firmed lster on the strength of
the cash market and the closing figures
ahowed a gain over yesterday.
The corn market was very dull and re
mained unchanged and was featureless.
Cash corn was strong, bringing better
f rices fur all grades, owing to the scarc
ly of offerings. Receipts have fallen
below the requirements and cash stuff In
bringing premiums over the option.
Primary wheat receipts were 806.000
bushels and shipments were 938, QUO bushels,
against receipts last wear of 700,000 bushels
and shipments of 1.713.0(H) bushels.

and shipments were 234,000 bushels, against
receipts last year of 845,000 bushels and
shipments of 688,000 bushels. ' .

CHICAGO GRAIN AN rROVJSIOJIS
Feat area of the TraaUnal and Closing
Prices on Board of Trade.
' CHICAGO'. Dec, 1 Threatened spread of
the swltchmen a strike caused a stampede
among aborts In the wheat market today
and transformed a previously weak market
Into one of decided strength. At the close
prices showed net gains for the day of
He to o. Corn closed steady, but oat and
urovlslona were strong.
Possibility that the labor disturbances
which have almost completely tied up
freight trafflo Id the northwest might be
extended to other railroads wag the pre
dominating Influence In the wheat pit dur
ing the final hour and entirely offset the
effect of a number of bearish faotors which
had created considerable weakness earlier
in the session. Shorts In December were
especially eager to even up trades and In
their anxiety to cover, bid the price of that
option up 1H0 above the low point of the
day. This In turn affected the' more dis
tant deliveries! although-the July option
showed only a moderate upturn. The range
on December for the day was between
11.0M4 and 11.06. while May sold between
U.OtV and Jl.Oo'4. Final quotations were
almost at the top, December being at 11.06
and May at tl.&Vifl.06.
Wet weather and the bulge In wheat held
the corn market firm the greater part of
the day. The market closed firm, with
xrlcea unchanged to "o higher.
Oats were strong all day. At the close
prices were Wo to 3t above yesterday's
Iinai figures.
V rovlslons were rather weak at the start,
but soon rallied. The close showed net
J.uns of 740 to 12Ho.

L. A. WELSH, Local Forecaster,
NEW TOTtK. Dee. 2. Speculative atten
tion was diverted from the main current
of affairs In the stock market today In
sorr.e bye-channels having to do with spe
cial developments concerning railroad
properties and their relations. The separa
te n of the Uock Island and the St. Louis
ond Pan Francisco systems has given
fc-round, from the first, for supposition tf
reodjnstm'-nts to follow, which might In
volve momentous consequences to the
existing bnlance of relations and control
amergnt railroad properties.
Today's announcement from the Lehigh
Vallev of the coming entry Into its ill-
rctorate of the dominnnt powers In the
Rock Inland company, afforded light In one
direction, which the readjifttment was tak- 1
Ing. The new forces In Lehigh Valley were
at some pains to disclaim any' interest in
Wabash railroad, which has been In
fluenced for several days by an aswumptlo 1
that it was to come Into the plans for the
direction of Lehigh Valley. The sup
position pointed as on alternative to the
Delaware, Lackawanna and Western ss
nn eastern outlet for the Hock Island, to
be linked by the Wabash. This alternative
did not weaken the effect of the Lelilgh
Valley transaction owing to the clone
banking relations between the new forcas
In Lehigh Valley and the Lackawanna
element in the old Irfhlgh Valley control.
The reports of plans for extension of the
Western Maryland reorganized property
revived the conjeotures of a possible com
pletion of its Unking with the Wabash
I'lttsburg for the carrying out of the pro
ject for an ocean outlet for the Oould
system, supposed at one time to have been
abandoned. At the same time a wide field
for surmise was offered by the possible
recasting of relations to follow the ad
question of the St Louis and San Fran
cisco as an adjunct to the Hawley hold
ings. From this was Inferred a possible
resale of the Missouri, Kansas and Texas,
lately acquired by the same rapidly grow
ing power In the railroad world. The Joint
effect of these reports was not stimulating
to the market. Considerable effect has
been felt already from the preliminary op
erations In connection with these develop
ments and It is evidently feared that the
consequence of the actual accomplishment
would be reactionary.
The market was affected, as well, by the
reduction of demand for the short Interest,
which was covered In the rise In prices
yesterday. The liability of the call money
market to Ylurries under the Influence of
continued exports of gold and the require
ments of such large transactions as are
Involved In the readjustment of the rail
mad nwnorshtn hpifets caution In the snecu
latlon. The serious effects of the railroad
switchmen's strike In the northwest and
the fear of Its spread had a depressing effect-Bonds
were steady. Total sales, par
value. 85,257,000. United Stales bonds un
changed on call. -

fHEEP Very limited supplies proved a
stimulating Influence ti buying demand
this morning and everything changed
hands early as a result.
Receipts were mostly fed sheep of dlf.
ferent kinds, there being very few lamb
and practically no feeders on sale. Aside
from a greater activity In purchasing clr-
clea, prices were also strong to some higher
than yesterday. A broad test of values, of
course, was Impossible, but most strings of
fed sheep realized figures that looked
easily strong to a dime higher. Sonid
toppy fed yearlings sold at 36 40. Fed lambs
remained quotably steady, one string of na
tives changing hands at 37.60.
The live mutton trade during the four
days this week leaves current quotations
right around lrKyfco higher than at the
close of last. Outlet for good fat stuff
has at all times been liberal, snd while
the fed offerings have not shown as much
suitable has sold readily. Lambs have been
In a rather limited supply and the average
quality none too good. No positive ad
vance Is apparent in this branch of the
trade, but a good, healthy tone has fea
tured Inquiry, and if there has been any
change In prices. It hss been In the direc
tion of stronger figures.
Plenty of orders for stock sheep and
lambs are still unfilled In the hands of
00m mission men. Hardly enough feeders
have been Included In. the total run this
week to make a normal one day's assort
ment, euttable classes are still In vigorous
request, however, and prices are quotably
firm with last Friday.

and about 2,000 head larger than for the
same time a year ago.
The demand for beef steers was very
fair and as the supply was - small the
offerings for the most part changed hands
in good seaHon in the morning. ine prices
paid did not show any very material
change as compared with yesterday's, most
salesmen calling It a steady market.
as usual lor some time uacn. a con
siderable proportion of the arrivals con
sisted ot cows and neuers. 1 ne market
on this class of offerings was also about
steady, there being no material change as
compared with yesterday.
Although It is aeetlnx late In the week.
the yards were so well cleaned of feeders
yesterday that there was again a very
good demand this morning at good steady
to strong prices so far as the desirable
kinds were concerned. All In all It was
a good, healthy and entirely satisfactory
markot for a Thursday.

HOGS The market yesterday closed in
bad shape, so that sellers' opinions of
today's trade differed widely, depending
upon the time 01 day yesterday when they
sold. The early market might be described
as strong as compared with yesterday s
best time, or strong to 60 higher than
yesterday's general market. The market,
however, was uneven, the trade being
more active and stronger In one division
than in the other. Thus while the early
arrivals generally sold In very good season
In one division, as noted above, the trade
In the other part of the yards was slow,
with sellers generally quoting the bids
only about steady with yesterday morning.
After the more urgent orders were filled,
the market became very dull and fur a
lime pracUoeUy nothing was doing:
