Italy and Groat Hrltaln were pur
chasers of both cash and futures, and
the situation was ono of great activity,
and cons.derable strength was siiowu
nearly all day. There were some In the
wheat market who hint paper profits to
their credit, and In nn endeavor to tisns
fer the paper profits to actual money
the market displayed nunc or less weak
ness, and resting spots for the day wcro
at net losses or VuV'.
It was a difficult matter to learn as to
the amount of cash whe.it taken In all
IHisitlona, but the general Impression
here was that the total sales wers
around 2,000,000 bushels.
A cable from Llvei iol says that nisr
ket is inclined to trail on after tlio price
changes at Chicago. The situation tneru
was affected by the upturns here of
Tuesday, but this was offset In a meas
ure by Increasing offers from India and
Argentina and butter weather In the lat
Corn was up l,((ft and oats showed
gains of mi'V. both of these grainu
showing more or lesa activl.y. The lasii
sales here were S10.000 bushels of corn,
with 176.H00 bushels for export, and
1.116,000 bushels of oats, with l.OXI.iOJ
bushels fur export.
l'rovlsions were sctlve with a good
share of buying on outside orders. Back
era sold May ilelU erica freely, and this
pressure closed prices lower, tt Is said
that the price of hotts mid products rhow
a good "cutting" profit, and this will
account for hedging sales by packers.

In provisions was utn'lisnged to 10c
lOxpnrt houses watched their chance
and promptly took offers of wheat as
sunn as the market had undergone a set
back. The down turn desired by the
representatives of foreigners came early
a a result of a decline of 2c at lluencs
Ayres. where. In addition to favorable
weather for harvest, estimates of a big
exportable surplus had caused depression.
wnicn was Increased bv almost prohibi
tive rates for vesaol room to Kurope.
On tho other hand, the bullish renejon
here whs accompanied by announcement
t li nt export clearances from the t nlied
Mates during the last two days had
amounted to as mucli as 3.0.tK bushels.
r riends of high prices were gratified 1
over the fact that durum wheat today at
Minneapolis touched $1 46 a bushel, over
topping all previous records.
The American supply of this grade Is .
said to be now virtually exhausted, tho
result of Immense purchasing for Italy.
It was estimated todsy thai the Itnlian
government had bought In the 1'nlted
States S0,0"0.0u bushels of all k mis of
wheat so far this season, and would need
as much fore In the near future.
Predictions of unsettled weather helped
to broaden the doman for corn. Rural
offerings continued to be less free than
was expected. Oats hardened with corn.
The chief feature was the buying of May
by cash houses.
In provisions the call from outside In
terests more than offset hedging sales

CATTLK Receipts were not very heavy
this morning, either here or at any
market points, but tliov were plenty
large enough to meet the requirements
of the trade. As noted before in those
columns the demand lor beef Is always
limited at all market polvte during the
holiday Beacon. No one Is looking for
an thing like a brisk demand for cattle
until after January 1.
The few beef steers here this morning
moved slowiy at pr.ces that were cer
tuinly no better than steady and If any
thing a little lower than yesterday, esiie
Maily on the close. The best beeves
here were good enough to bring $X.6j,
there being nothing good In sight.
Cows and heifers generally commanded
good steady prices, but the market
There were not enough storkers or
feeders to cut much figure In the trade
and prices w?r without noteworthy

Htiua-Reoeipts were fair this morning,
bout 12o cars, or 8 300 head, being re
ported. About xixteen loads of these
were consigned direct. For the four days
the run totals 30,6Htt head, a gain over
lost week of 2,000 ami 20,000 larger than a
year ago. The fact that the Christmas
holiday enmn on Thursday last year Is
partly responsible for the big gain noted.
ine market opened out auu tins morn
ing, and as other points, especially Chi
cago, reported sharp declines, the local
trade opened with shippers and specu
lators buying at btiioc lower prices.
i'aokers' early offers ware even worse
than that, being In most Instance a flat
dime off, but by the time a general move
ment started they had Improved until the
big end of the offerings finally sold at a
fulOo decline. Trade remained dull
The bulk of sales was made, at M SOtf
6.95, with quite a sprinkling at $7.00 and
a top or 17 on. F or tne weeg to nute
mices are around a nickel lower. Pack
ers have Ixen bearish ail through, but
heavy shipping and speculative buying
helped to hold values up. Lights, which
havo been In poor request, probably show
tho most decline, but It haa been notloed
that the big, rough, packing grades
have not sold so readily as they did last
SHEEP The packers were good com
petitors for another light run consisting
for the most Dart of lambs and a sprink
ling Qf ewes. The demand for killing
laniDs was so good that sellers were ante
to realise nrices strong to lntfrl,'o higher
on luinhs and fully steady on ewes. If
anything tho general quality of the lamb
offerings was not quite as good, though
some pretty good lambs were on the
market, there being averal loans good
enough to command $8.55, with tbe bulk
going at $k.26TrN.40, the moat Of which
were on the wrtcatflnld order. Moil of
the ewes on sale brought $5.30(06.50, wlh
the quality In manv respects like yea
terday. Trade being brisk the clearance
was naturally early. Two cars of feeder
lambs moved at $7. no.
Friday being Christmas today prao
tlcally clones the market for the week,
with lambs Improving 4O'ifi00 since Isst
week's close and ewes showing an ad
vance of 15 a -'P. Yearlings havo been in
meager supply and moved up lufylRc,
The upward tendency to prices and the
healthy cunditlvn of the trade this week
has been attributed largely to the fact
that the country has been conservative In
shipping to market, the receipts for the
week to date being very moderate. In
the iielKhl4rhood of only some lti.7-0 head
have been reported In, against 29.34 last
Week and 2K.4..9 bead two weeks ago.

NEW YORK, Deo. 24 In Its essen
tials today's stock market conttnued to
traverse ths ground of the last few days.
More minimum prices were registered In
shares in Investment and speculative vsl
ties, the list Including Canadian Pacific,
Baltimore Ohio and the Southern rail
ways, while I'nlted States Steel and

More than a score of Inactive and mis
cellaneous stocks sold lower than before.
Ttnillng bore the familiar ante-holiday
aspects, ths volume of business falling
below recent days. Opening prices re
flected the same degree of Irregularity
so long prevalent, followed by rallies
which carried the leaders one to two
points above yesterday's close. The ad
vance appenred to be the result of short
covering more than anything elee, and.
when the demand from that quartet"
teased, stocks fell back from sheer
Renewed weakness In Canadian Pacific
an I Southern Railway preferred on ex
tensive offerings unsettled the list In the
afternoon with lowest prices of the day.
In the final dealings some buying of
Amalgamated Copper and Reading Im
parted a belter undertone, but the closing
was heavy tid uncertain.
Weakness of the high priced railway
shares indicated thst the reduced divi
ded! declared yesterday by the directors
of the Pennsylvania company, with Its
resultant effect on Pennsylvania rall

hension respecting tho dividend status

vidend on Its increased capital stock Im
parted firmness to the Yanderbllt group.
A loss of more than $10,000,000 gold was
the interesting feature of the Bank of

NEW YORK, Dec. 24. Dun's Review
will say on Saturday:
Ths railroad rate decision, ths contin
ued big exports of wheat and other pro
ducts and the colder weather, which stim
ulates retail distribution exert the most
important influence In the markets this
week. December, with Its holiday Inter
ruptions and Inventories Is not usually
a month for large developments In busi
ness activity, but the recent progress In
finsnrlal recuperation, the rapid establish
ment of a big balance of trade In favor
of this country, and the rate decision giv
ing a lsrge pert o the relief aaked for
from the Interstate Commerce commis
sion, combined to create a favorable sen
timent In business The better feeling
has undoubtedly Impaired a brisker move
ment to the Christmas trade, which,
though less in volume than last year, baa
been much more activa than appeared
possible a few weeks sgo.
Hank clearings for the week were)
$2,008,108, a decrease of 11 $ per cent as
