active, but had a heavy tone. Speculators

hesvy and a general one, and seems to be
limited only by the number of care which
can be; obtained. The cash market waa
very heavy, with values ranging unchanged
to c lower.

Prices on the Hoard of Trade.
CHICAGO, Dec. 17. With the Australian
supply of wheat the largest on record and
with primary receipts In thl country
greatly In excess of a year ago, the market
here eaaed off a little today. The close
was at a net decline of a shade to He
Corn and oats both finished W&&o to Wi$
-no unuer last nigni. in provisions, latest
figures were unchanged to 10c up.
At no time during the day waa there
any aggressive buying to lift up values In
the wheat pit. The apparent reaeon was
the official report of the crop of New
South Wales bearing out assertions from
merchandising quarters that the Austral
tan yield is a large one and with 16.0OU.wu
bushels carried over from the previous
year makes the supply there the heaviest
on record. On the other hand primary re
ceipts In the United Btatea were extremely
liberal compared with twelve months back
so much so as almost to equal the volume
of corn. The tone of the market as the
day wore on was In the main fairly steady.
May ranged from 964j to 967o and closed
c off at vc.
Corn weakened because the week's re
ceipts here were nearly 2,000.000 bushels
more than were shipped out. Mav sold
from 471 to 47Ho and finished Vit'c ofr
at 47Vrt'47. Catili demand was decidedly
slack. No. 2 yellow closed at 60'VaOlc.
The Northwest sold a good deal of cash
oats to local Iecember shorts today, and
predicted large arrivals here next week.
May fluctuated between and 3Vcf414.
wun nnai sates HWfeO down at 34c.
Provisions became strong and weak bv
turns. In the end there was a net rise of
24 to 10c In pork; lard was unchanged to

in lair aeason. After orders had been filled
and moHt of the buyers had left the yards,
a few loads that were on sale late met

which was the top as against $7.70 yester
day. Receipt of hogs this week have been very
liberal, being the largest In a number of

short of the corresponding period of a year
ago by about ll.UnO head. The market
started out at the beginning of the week

CATTLE The market was practically
bare of cattle today, there being nothing of
any consequence In sight. For the week
receipts have fallen considerably short of
last week a record and also of a year ago.
The week, however, started out with very
liberal receipts and 'as eastern markets
were unfavorable, prices at this point suf
fered a sharp decline during the first half
of the week. Later on as It became ap
parent that receipts were none too large
o supply the local demand there was a
gradual recovery until the loss was prac
tically made up.
The beef steers coming this week have
consisted very largely of cornfeds, the
best heavy cattle selling up as high as
$6.60, with a bunch of yearling steers and
heifers as high as $7.16. The lew range
cattle that arrived met with very ready
sale at satisfactory prices.
Although the market on cows and heif
er was weak and lower yesterday, the
market at the close of the week I about
where it was last week. Good cows and
heifer have sold fairly well, but the com
mon and canning kinds which have been
In very liberal supply have not been quite
as active seller a usual.
Ordinary light and medium weight stock-
era and feeders have been a little hard to
move recently and the feeling on that kind
Is a little lower. On the other hand de

good a last week or even a Uttle better.

SHEEP Today's receipts consisted of a
couple of cars, most of them feeders, so
that there was really not enough of any
thing on sale to make a market. The feel
ing was Just about steady with yesterday.
Kecelpts for the week have only been
moderate, showing a little decrease as
compared with the last week and a very
considerable falling off a compared with
a year ago. While there have been a few
feeders Included in the run, th big bulk of
the arrivals ha been made up of fed
sheep and lambs.
It will b remembered that last week'
market cloeed sharply higher, prices be
ing at the best point touched In a num
ber of days. A the present week opened
out with liberal receipts, buyers took ad
vantage of the situation to pound the
market a little, killer being quoted 10
15o lower. Although receipt during the
next two day were moderate, eastern mar
kets were so unfavorable that prices con
tinued weak to lower and in spite of a
little reaction on Thursday, the week
closes with sheep and heavy lambs around
26&50C lower than the high point at last
week's close. Best light have not suffered
so much loss, but they are at least lo&lio
lower. As already hinted, the decline this
week has been due entirely to unfavorable
conditions prevailing at eastern points.
The consuming demand has proven rather
disappointing and packers in consequence
have not been as free buyers as usual and
the market has declined for the want oi
better buying support. This, however.
Is nothing unusual for the holiday season
of the year when the demand is always
more or less fickle and price correspond
Ingly uncertain. The general feeling among
operators, however, is by no means bad
and if the country continues Its present
conservative policy In the matter of mar
keting stock, there Is no reason why the
trade should not continue in a good healthy

NEW YORK, Dec 13. Quite the most
Important and significant feature of the
last week In the financial district was the
Increased demand for bonds. The move
ment doubtless gathered some momentum
from the decision of the Georgia court of
appeals, which distinctly favored holders
of income bondi of the Central of Oeorgla
railroad, and the additional fact that Jan
uary Interests and dividend disbursements
Invariably seek reinvestment in th higher
6,-rade securities. Altogether the revival of
public interest In bonds was regarded a a
In the stock market the movement wa
sain Irregular, with alternate manifesta
tions of strength and weakness. The out
come was hardly satisfactory to either
side, final prices In a majority of Instances
showing little change. There was ome
activity In the various specialties, but the
market for Issues of that clas wa largely
manipulative and elicited practically no
outside support. Trading throughout the
week was of minor proportion, and. a has
so long been the case, of n ultra profes
Political events of th week, whlrh In
cluded the new supreme court appoint
ments, resumption of tariff legislation, ult
by the federal government -against th
Southern Pacific company and threatened
action from the same quarter against the
so-called Electrical trust, wer without
much Influence marketwlse.
Foreign exchange fell to the lowest point
In almost three years, on heavy offerings
of bankers' bills. The many report of J
railroad earnings submitted reflected fur
ther reduction of operations by many of
the larger systems, and excited some mis
givings as to the stability of dividends.
An acute stage seems to have been reached
in the threatened strike of the western
roads, which affect sixty-one transporta
tion companies and 81.000 employe. An
other phase of the labor ltuatlon devel
oped In the declston of the United States
Steel corporation to suspend operations at
one of lis largest mills because of the
scarcity of business. The shutdown Is not
likely to be of long duration, but throw
a strong light on prevailing conditions In
that Important Industry. In other Indus
trial lines, however, some Improvement 1
shown, particularly In copper and lead.
The mercantile trade shows marked Im
provement, especially In the west, wher
record-breaking holiday business I reported.
