Bear Clique and the Money- Situation
Together Unsettle Speculative Sen
timent A Fair Local Trade.
At New York yesterday money on call was
firm at 203 per cent; last loan, per cent.
Prime mercantile paper. 53-4 per cent.
Sterling exchange was very weak, with actual
business in bankers bills at 4.S3Ts?4.S4 for de
mand and $4.8M?4.80H for sixty days; posted
rates, $4.81t.&'3l.2 and 4.SV34.se; commercial
: Silver certificates were M'iSCic: bar silver,
4'ic; Mexican dollars, S0c. Bar silver at Lon
don was 2D 11-1SJ an ounce.
Trading on the New York Stock Exchange yes
terday was marked by a revival of a considera
ble bear party, whose activities were aggressive
and persistent. Their efforts to depress rrices
were contested by the speculative holders of
lens stock, who were successful last week in
lifting prices. In spite of tho various unfavora
ble factors which developed in the situation
The conflicting forces at work were reflected in
a feverish and Irregular movement cf prices
The marked depletion of banking reserves, re
vealed b7 the Saturday bank statement, had the
effect of unsettling speculative opinion. There
was a constant variation of apprehension over
a constriction of money supply and the prospect
o! relief by imports of gold. The coavletlon be
am e pretty well settled, as the day progressed.
that gold would move from London towards
New York this week. The market for foreign
exchange fell feverishly by successive stages
throughout the day. and demand sterling closed
a full cent on the pound below Friday's level.
which is the Last active day of business in the
exchange market. This price is within a email
fraction of the level generally agreed upon as
offering a profit on Imports of gold at the present
price of gold and rate for money in London, and
probably Is within the limit that would allow
the special transactions which generally precede
a regular gold movement in a straggling fashion
Owing to the temporary abundance of money in
London, on account of government financial oner
atlona and receipts of gold from India, In pay-

uieui tor silver, discount raies continue to lall
there and offer no resistance to the Dressur fur
gold. The small movement of gold from London
to Berlin yesterday was in response to the trans
fers of sterling trom New York to lierlln, which
have progressed in connection with payment cf
subscriptions to the Oermin loan. A member
cf the trerman loan syndicate broadly Intimated
that requirements for exchange in payment of
subscriptions to the loan were about satisfied,
and expressed the opinion that the same was
true In connection with the Dritish loan. There
was an appreciable narrowing of the money sup
ply offering in New York. The prevailing rate
held at I per cent, for call loans, and ran up to
I'i ptT tent, during the afternoon, but the higher
rate brought out an abundant supply to fill the
small remaining- requirements, and the rate ran
eft to 2Vi It cent. The interior movement of
currency continues unabated, and the deposits
at the subtreasury alone yesterday for transfer
to tne interior loot up tnree-quarters of a million
dollars- witn tne exception cf a period of
strength in the iron and steel stocks, led by
Tennessee Coal and Colorado Fuel, the reaction
ary tendency Is predominant, and the leadlnz
stocks were off from one to three points. With
the late break In call money and the fall In ex
change to about the gold point, prices rallied
somewhat, but the market closed feverish and
The active bond issues were weak, but there
were exceptions among high-grade bonds. Total
ales at par value were $1.000.000. United States
bonds were unchanged on the last call.

Changes In the Other Products.
CHICAGO, Oct. 8. "Wheat was quiet ana Ir
regular, to-day, with lower cables and gool
weather the predominating Influences, November
closing S6Jic under Saturday. Corn closed ;e
higher, oats unchanged and provisions 2Hc lower
to 5c higher.
November wheat opened ic lower, at 77Ue to
7T-tc, and, on selling, part of it for the forelsn
account, dropped during the forenoon to 77c.
In this the factors were a decline at Liverpool
and clear, cool weather in the Xorhwest. t-
gether with liberal Northwestern receipts and
the closing- of some of the Minneapolis mills.
There was considerable short selling early, on
the expectation of a half million decrease In th?
Visible. The visible statement, however, showed
800,000 bu decrease, and, on rebuying by those
who had sold at first, November rallied sharply
to 77ic. Shorts being satisfied, the market de
clined again and closed weak, November Q!ic
lower, at 7Cc. Primary receipts were 1,579.000
tu. Minneapolis and Duluth reported 951 cars,
against 857 last week. Local receipts were 12
cars. 3 of contract irrade. Seaboard clearances
were equal, in wheat and flour, to 560,000 bu.
New York reported nothing for export. Accord
ing to board figures, world's shipments, last
week, were 8,133.000 bu, practically the same as
those of the previous week and a year ago. The
amount on passage showed 1,171,000 bu decrease.
' Corn was fairly active and firm on a good ship
ping demand, 200,000 bu being worked here for
export. Receipts were 803 cars. 243 cars over the
estimate. Country acceptances were moderate.
Trade was principally In October, which sold
between 40'c and 40c, closing He down, at
4CUc. November sold between 37ic and STTic,
closing c up, at 37ß3Sc.
Oats were extremely ami. xovemDer seiun?
between 22Vc and Uilü2Zc. and closing un
changed at 22V(f22sic. Receipts were 431 cars.
The corn tirmness helped the market.
Provisions were quiet. The market showed
firmness early, because hog receipts were S.oo-)
head under the estimate. October pork sold off
fiom J17 to 16, and November relinquished its
early gain in sympathy, lard and ribs also easing
off a trifle, but cloving steady. January pork gold
between J 12 and JH.So, and closed 2VaC lower,
at. J1LS74: January lard between 17.024 and
16. 97 Vi. closing Sc higher, at $7, and January
ribs between S6.37U and IC.32V4. with the close
a shade up at $6.32Va&6.33.

Oct. 8. -Cattle Receipts, 173; shipments. 73. The
tcelpts of cattle were larger than usual at thi
t'rae In the week, but consisted principally of
etock that were not suitable for killers, and thl
being an off day for other kinds the market was
necessarily quiet and few sales were reported.
Most dealers considered the outlook at least
steady for all choice cattle In their class, but
buyers did not Intimate that there will te an-
liberal demand. Quotations:

Hogs Receipts, 2,000; shipments. 200. Ths re
ceipts of hogs were not much different from a
week ago and a year ago. but larger than tho
average at this time in the week. The quality
generally was not very satisfactory, and there
were quite a number of grassers represented.
The scarcity of choice stock had a tendency to
make buyers more independent and early bids
were considerably lower than the close of last
week. Finally, however, with local packers the
principal buyers a good clearance was made on
a basis of a shade lower prices than Saturday
morning for the more desirable grades. Prices of
grassers were very irregular, but generally con
sidered lower. Fancy heavy hog3 would probably
have sold as high as $3.40, but on account of the
quality there were no sales reported above $5.30,
and light grassers sold as low as $4.73. Quota

were not enough fresh arrivals of sheep or

other places this morning Indicate a healthier

There was not a car offered that would average
