Business Condition. t
NKW YORK. IH-c. 24 (Special Tele
gram.) Uuslness was unusually dull In
Wall street during the week. The swing
of the market has not been more than
two points during the last two weeks and
trading has been limited to a very narrow
scoh.. The sessions of Tuesday and
Wednesday were moderately active. This,
to some extent, relieved the dullness of
the week and brouuht the average dully
changea up to 2:.0W shares. Natural to
this season of the year, was the better
Investment demand fur sureties, espe
cially for bonds.
An enormous amount of dividend and In
terest monev will be released on January
1. It Is estimated that as hlh as r-W0.-
against jao.oon.on) a year ago. Two
years ago January disbursements did not
exceed $100,KMino. and the total payments
on stocks and bonds then were about
$750,000,000. On the earnings of 110 they
will be nearly $1.2."0.0i'0. of course, this
represents an enormous amount of new
Interest bearing bonds. At the same time
no small part of It Is the product of capi
tal that was earning nothing in the
earlier vears and now Is highly productive.
A case In point Is that of the Lehigh Val
ley railroad, whose dividends were sus
pended around 1H"0 and which havo Just
been placed on a 10 per cent basis.
Tho bank statment for the week fulfulled
the favorable expectations of yesterday,
although the actual week-end statement
showed barely half as large gain In cash
as had been expected. The l-'.itoWO ad
dition to that account, however, nvre than
offset a $6,200,000 loan expansion and the
resultant increase In deposits, so that sur
plus reserves Increased $."!0.ono. The actual
surplus reserve Is now slightly below that
of this week In 9 and Is also less than
In 1807 or 1!4. With other recent years It
makes a favorable comparison.
Loans Kxceed Deposits.
Among other changes of the week the
excess of loans over deposits Is cut down
$S,1W,000. That excess Is now $J4.A-XA. It
was t-W. 90o.oi" a fortnight ago, and
$1.100.0UU at this time last year. At the
closing week of 1909, the loan excess rose
to $2i,lii0,0U0. but disappeared altogether
two weeks later.
The wide fluctuations of the week In
foreign exchange markets direct attention
to what usually follows In January after
the year-end settlement obligations have
been adjusted. The gold movement be
tween I'nlted States and Kurope In that
month haa been sufficiently Irregular to
give Interest to tho probable course of ex
change during the next five weeks.
Business Interests In Wall street are look
ing to the opening of the new year for a
general revival along all Industrial I nn.
The merchants have enjoyed an unusually
large Christinas trade and the removal of
spring orders by the Jobbers calls for re
newed activity among the manufacturers
of all staple products. The farming Inter
ests of the country hav had a prosperous
season and their prosperity will In a like
iiiMiiiier imu 11.1 wuy ukck iu mo uiuunumi
and general business Interests of the coun
Itailroad. Karnlnsra Increase.
The surprising feature of the general
trade situation Is the manner In which the
railroad gross earnings cont.nue to In
crease. For the two weeks of December
this gain amounts to 74 per cent. It com
pares with an Increase in two weeks of
November, as against the same two weeks
In 1WW. of a Utile over 1 per cent, and for
two weeks In October, as against tho same
weeks in 19U9, of less than 2 per cent.
December's Increase mny be accounted
for somewhat by the earnings of the north
western lues and lines centering around
Chicago, which at this time a - year ago
were operating on a very low basis on ac
count of the switchmen's strike.
Other parts of the country where these
troubles were not a factor have been show
ing good gains. One section In particular
that has made a fine record Is the south.
Traff.c there holds up Btrong and so does

CATTLE There were only a few cattle
here today and there was nothing ot any
conseuuince on sale, in fact not enough to
make a market. The receipts for the week
though very much smaller than for pre
vious weeks, were nevertheless large lor
the week preceding the holidays, ahowlnK
a total of 16.800 head, as against 12,700
heud for ths same week a yar ago.-
During the first half of the week under
the influence of moderate receipts and a
very fair buying demand beef cattle of all
kinds snowed a sharp advanoe. In many
canes sales were quoted on Wednesday a a
much aa 26o higher than the cloee of the
ptevloua week. Later In the week, as the
market came more' and more under ths in
fluence of the holiday season, the demand
fell off and as receipts unfortunately con
tinued very fair the market slumped oil.
All the sdvance of the early part of the
week was lost, so that at the close values
are only about where they were at the
close of last week. .
Cows and heifers advanced rapidly dur
ing the first half of the week, but on
Thursday and Friday they broke badly,
wiping out In the two days all the gain
that had been maife. At the close they too
are only about steady with one week sgo.
Calves, bulls and stags are also about
where they were at last week a close.
Very few feeders arrived during the
week, but there) was a very fair demand
and everything In sight met with very
ready sale at strong prices every day. in
fact the market. If anything, firmed up a
little from day to day, and at ths close
of ths week the desirable kinds are quoted
1016o higher than one week ago.

HUGS- Hogs opened i10c higher this
morning. As has been the case every
morning for some time back the demand
was the most active for the light hogs
and they sold pretty generally 10c higher
than yesterday. Still, heavy hogs showed
a good advance and the early arrivals were
soon disposed of. A train that arrived at
10 o'clock changed hands as soon as It
could be unloaded, the market, if anything,
being a little stronger even that ear,y,
pretty much everything showing an ad
V(tnc of 10c.
Heavy hogs sold largely at $7-50(87.60, and
the mixed loads of light and medium
weight around $7.604j7.7O. with good lights
ranging from $7.70 all the way up to $7.&5
for the best. The latter price was the top
for the day and for the month so far.
While receipts of hogs this week have
not been quite up to last week s record
In point of numbers, they have been larger
than for the same week last year by 7,000
head. The market during the week has
jumiied up and down, but the ups have had
the best of It. At the cIohc of the week
the general market la fully lEc higher
tharf It was at the close of last week, and
the highest that it ha been any time since
the middle of November.

SHEEP While there were no fresh re
ceipts of sheep today the run for the week
has been fairly liberal, showing a consider
able gain over the corresponding week of
last year 'lo put It another way receipts
this wrek have beeu tuliy aa large as toe
market could well lake caie of, consider
ing that it was the week before tn no.l
days. when the demand is not expected
to be very brlik. -
The prices paid this week have been In
the main satisfactory. Chicago expel I
enced a very sharp Jump In prices one day.
but went to pieces the dav following,
closing badlv. The market neither made
the high Jump nor the low close, but re
mained moie nearly stationary. If any
thing prices have firmed up a Utile and
are around Wis 15c and In some cases 3jC
higher than the close of last week.
The fact that prlcea are higher than a
week ago should not be taken, however,
as an encouragement fur free shipping of
htock during lh next few days. As has
been pointed out with great frequency of
late the sheep and lamb market Is always
more or less uncertain during the holiday
week and the only sale policy for snippers
to follow la one of censervatism. While
with light receipts prices may prove very
satisfactory, anything like a large run
during the hiiliday week Is almost in
variably a signal for a sharp break in
prices No one looks for anything more
than a very moderate demand until after

On tho Ocean Liners
Will Be Elaborate
Stewards and Chefi Are Now Busy
Getting: the Delicacies Heady
for the Table.
NEW YORK. Dec. 24 Not ths least Im
portant part of the cargo of the ocean
liners sailing from New York last week
have Vcn the Christmas trees, decorations
and costumes for the Christmas celebra
tion. Although thousands will pass the
holidays at sea from choice or necessity,
there will be no lack of Christmas cheer
aboard. The mere landsman knows nothing
of the delights of Christmas on the ocean.
On the Gorman boats especially the entire
crew from the captain to the last steward
tnkes some part In the celebration. A
Christmas tree Is trimmed elaborately anil
the cnblna hung with greens. The Christ
mas dinner Is the event of the voyage.
A score r more of stewards In costume
bear In the desserts marching about the
cabin to appropriate music. Everywhere
the spirit of Christmas prevails, and the
very isolation of the ship's company lends
a new test to the celebration.
A recent order of the management of the
Alaska Steamship company provides that
every one of the boats from the best pas
aenger to the smallest frelKhter. will have
the Christmas dinner this year served In
a way that will ever be remembered by
crew and passengers alike. These boats
ply between Seattle and all parts of Alaska.
This year the Christmas dinner will, be
served on each boat and the purchasing
department has bought turkeys, plum pud
ding and all the accessories for an elabor
ate menu. Those who are among the pas
sengers this Christmas day will have the
opportunity of testing the ability of a doien
chefs In getting up an elaborate Christmas
dinner at sea.
Check Crook Regrets
Crookedness of Pal
Harry Collins, on Way to Prison,
iinds that Companion Took
.His Fine Clothes.
Harry Collins, who pleaded guilty to rais
ing a check and was sentenced to serve
two years In the penitentiary by Judge
Estelle Saturday, says he Is convinced of
the falsity of the maxim, "There la honor
among thieves." He ays they are Just
as dishonorable as anybody else.
After he was sentenced Saturday morn
ing he went down to the police station
to secure his two suit cases, which, he
said, contained two suits of clothes, a lot
of fine silk underwear and pyjamas, and
some olher valuable personal effects.
Reaching the station he learned that Jacob
Schlutter. who collaborated with him In
raising the check and getting the money
for it, played a mean trick on him.
When Collins and a sheriffs deputy were
on their way back to ths county Jail Col
lins told about rroperty at the police sta
tion. He said the police took It away from
him when they arrested him a few weeks
ago. He wanted to go and get it. That
sounded fair enough to the deputy. But
alas for hope. The desk sergeant said:
"Bchlutter took those suitcases and
clothes with him when we sent him back
to tbe Missouri pen to finish a term there."
Collins and Schlutter Induced an ac
quaintance by the name of Adrus to give
them an $8 check by giving him $8 dollars
and explaining that they wanted to send
ttie check to a friend In Kansas City In
lieu of a money order, the postof flee money
order department being closed. Andrus was
willing. He started to unlock his desk to
get a pen and Ink when 'Collins offered htm
his fountain pen. The check was made
and given. Collins and Schlutter added a
"0" to the figure "8" and a "y" to the
word "eight." Then they had the check
certified by a bank cashier. They were
caught shortly after they got the check
