i'lllt'AOO. Jan. 21 There was the wild
est of selling of wheat In the last half hour
today . . Canadian reciprocity talk and the
report' of closing of more nulls Ailnne

More than a cent a bushel was clipped
from the price of May wheat In a few min
utes just before the gong cleared the pit.
Local longs unloaded by the wholesale on
slop loss orders. At the same time north
west houses sold here heavily. In the
opinion of soma brokera, aigna pointed to
extensive liquidating for bull leaders un
der cover. Gossip about reciprocity with
Canada was quite definite, but official
confirmation did not become common
property until shortly after actual trading
had ceased. Reports also regarding the
shutdown of additional mills In Minneap
olis 'were parried with denials minimizing
the effect until the market collapsed In
earnest. Karller In the session, support
bad been forth, -ornlng an l uppaiently was
much needed at the dollar level for May.
May fluctuated between 9stC to $1.0O,

Poorness both of domestic and export
demand made corn dull and heavy. eUy
ranged between 4HT()'(K0c. Cash corn waa
weak; No. 2 yellow finishing at 47fcr47'c.
oats were relatively steady because local
receipts of the week were but little In ex
1 esa of shipments. Price changes for May
kept within He limits and in the end were
precisely that much under last night's
level at 34V.
Weakneaa of the grain list counted
agaiual provisions. Th outcome was to
leave pork 7VfllO" l"1' down; lard, 60 to

CATTLE There were no fresh receipts
of cattle of any consequence this morn
ing. Receipts for the week, while showing
a slight falling off as compared wiih last
week, show a moderate gain over a year
ago. The arrivals have consisted largely
of warmed up and half fat cattle, the
proportion of trash on some days being
very large. On the other hand, there have
been a few good cattle arriving all the
Beef steers have been good sellera nil
week, the better grades showing a little
strength and being at the close of the
week quotable anywhere from strong to as
much as 10c higher han last week. On the
other hand, heaw and rough cattle, if any
thing, are a trifle easier than last week,
the demand for that kind being limited.
While no strictly choice cattle have been
received this week, there have been sev
eral bunches good enough to bring $6.35
The better grades of cows and heifers
have been strong sellers and they are In
some cases as much as 10c higher than
last week. On the other hand, the general
run of fair to medium butcher atock is
only about steady, still there has been a
good healthy tone to the trade throughout j
the week. One lot of heifers was received
good enough to bring 86.(6, which was the
top price for the week.
The demand for feeders has been very
active every day this week, with prices
slowly but surely working upward. The
demand has been such that everything of
fered has been snapped up In short order,
and at the close of the week prices are
safely Wit lie higher on the better grades.
On the other hand, the common to medium
kinds have remained only about steady.

HOGS A moderate supply of hogs moved
on a market steady to a shade lower
than yesterday's average trade, packers
taking the big end of receipts. In other
words, this morning's trade averaged
lower than yesterday's opening and strong
with yesterday's close. Slack demand from
shippers resulted in a quiet tone to com
petition and rather slow movement. Clear
ance waa made before midday, however,
bulk of smooth butcher and bacon offer
ings selling more readily than the heavy
offerings of rough mixed.
Heavy loads were more freouent than
lately and brought $7.65 and less, aualltv
determining the price. Good light mlxod
sold around $7.70 and choice lights had to
move at $7.76. Closing trade on all weights
waa ami at ngures weak to a dime lower
No very great changes tn the scale of
prices were apparent during the week, most
01 tne Dusiness neing aone within 16c range.
Until yesterday, trade ruled slightly higher,
but any early improvement been loat and
preseent prices are little better than steady
wiin inose 01 a weea ago. supplies have
been moderate with average quality good.

Receipts during the week have been ud
aeasonably large, fully 4".ou0 head of ani
mals showing up since and including Mon
day. Bulk of offering consisted of fed
westerns of long finish, the proportion of
native stuff being too small to afford a
trade of quotable Importance. All classes
of stock were available on most days, but
wethers have been rather scarce aa a rule,
this phase of the trade is due to the popu
lar Intention of feeders to hold their old
sheep for shearing.
As viewed by daily sales, the trade has
been In very good shape from start to fin
ish. Handv weignt w enters sold up as
high as $4 36. yearlings topped at $.Vlu and
good ewes are closing around $s.90ji4oo.
These prices show small advances when
compared with thoae of last week's close.

and shaded toward the close. Present val

the investment demand from capital went,
on, last week, though In more moderate
decree and afforded n basis for some
operation' In slocks. ihe tendency was
most strikingly reflected In the Inind de
partment of the stock evctianke Itsiif. the
volume of dealings swelling to a dally
n crace seldom eiiialled In the last e:ir.
Each dav brought lis announcement of a
sale of new bonds by participation in the
subscriptions heme a notable feature In
Advlcf s from abroad showed an active In
terest In foreign banking circles in the
forthcoming New York City bond issue.
Quotations for the new bonds "when Is
sued " at th" stock exchange, at a pre
mium foreshadowed the success of the
Investment demand was fostered by the
relaxing money market, which was In
fluenced 1y the heavy reflux of funds to
New York from Interior points. The mer
cantile VPer market benefited from the
increasing plenty or money supplies, thus
correcting one of the discrepancies In the
money market which had been a drag on
commerce through a period of apparent
ease. The December foreign trade state
ment showed another discrepancy In course
of correction. In the Piling up or a credit
balance of $'ai.000.0ii0 available for our money
market to draw on. That this was not
availed of was explained by the stlffer
money market in London, where the last
year was In contrast to New York, with
an active speculation, an unprecedented
volume of new capital Issues and expand
More t'hrerfnl Sentiment.
The course of the Investment market haa
brought courage to needy seekers for new
capital and haa disseminated more cheer
ful sentiment in various directions. Further
hearings before the Interstate Commerce
commission on the question of rata in
creases received less attention and the re
hearing of the anti-trust cases before the
supreme court was followed with compara
tively languid Interest.
The fact that current bond sales show a
rale of Investment return which remains
high compared with other periods. Initiating
a revival has not Impaired the feeling of
confidence begotten by renewed demand.
Recognition by borrowers of the necessity
of a higher price for capital had come to
be regarded as a necessary preliminary to
loosening the deadlock in investment mar
kets. Signs that the question of price,
rather than lack of supply, was at Issue In
enlisting capital come as a relief to appre
hension. The tentative measure of monetary re
form issued by the head of the monetary
commission has received abundant atten
tion In the financial community, with hopes
of beneficial results. The complexity of the
problem and the many contingencies still
tn meet before final success deprived the
matter of any very active influence in the
direct movement of .values. The break In
prices In butter and eggs was accepted as
favorable for the vexed problem of high
cost of living.

NEW YORK. Jan. 22. Activity continued
In foundry Iron at the expense of prices
In the east and south last week, but four
sales of stub-making Iron were affected.
Contracts for about 75.000 tons were placed
In all sections, of which 35.000 tons were
placed in the eastern district.
The largest tonnages went to manufac
turers of machine tools at Easton, Pa.,
makers of Ararlcal equipment in New Eng
land and to pipe works in the east, south
and in the Interior. New Inquiries came
out for about 35,000 tons, the largest in
cluding manufacturers of heating appara
tus and of blowers In Massachusetts. In
all about 76.000 tons are still under negoti
ation, including about 15,000 tons of basic
In the central west.
One feature was the freer offering of
furnace accumulations of all sort, and
kinds of metal and the taking up of about
30.000 tons by pipe works, mainly In the
south. The only feature of encouragement
for the steel mills was the release of many
small orders for plain structural material
accompanied by specification, and for qui ok
Some larger export orders were secured.
Beyond this the situation was unchanged
and It is notable that round tonnage. In

NEW YORK. Jan. 22. A larger volume
of business has been placed in cotton arooda

prices are so unremuneratl ve that mill,

fabric, and merchandise that will have
to be ordered by merchant. If It I. to be

Prices named on cotton blanket, show
increases of from IVc to 60 ner nair in
advance of last year while cotton Is higher
