The New York stock market again demon
strated Its astonishing resiliency and underlying
absorptive powers yesterday. Wall street has
lived for some time past as In abounding confi
dence that the securities were bound to go up
after the exigencies of the yearly settlement
tad been met and the money supply replenished
ty a reflux of funds by disbursements of divi
dend and interest, but the largo encroachment
making on the money market has caused a
taunting dread that prices In the stock market
were liable to be toppied over by a squeeze In
the money market and a forcing of speculative
liquidation. It was not until lata yesterday that
a solution of the market enigma was offered In
Intimation that looses by banks during the week,
which are conclusively shown by the known
movements of money, has ben offset by a gain
cf over $4.0)0,000 from some local source. This
lrdtmatlon, coming on top of a series of favor
able developments, threw the market into a state
of lulling animation and buoyancy. The eager
buying demand came from all sources, profes
sional bears, who were short of the market, com
peting anxiously with the rampant bulls, who
distributed their buying orders with a lavish
band all through the list. The market was a
striking one In contrast with the close. Thursday
r.iKht. when not en a phenomenal advance tn
the Erlo stocks was able to overcome the un
easiness of speculators over the palpable show
in? of absorption by the subtreaury of practi
cally enough to completely wipe out the surplus
reserves of the tank. The misplaced confidence
cf bear opeartors in Thursday night's celling
movement was an important factor iu emphasiz
ing th? day's strength. The full strength of ths
market was by no means manifest In the early
t'.eallnrs. although the outburst in the WabaxH
securities had a, fortifying effect. The absorp
tion of the Pennsylvania Coal Company in be
balf of the anthracite group was a continuing
Influence and was helped, by the morning's, an
nouncement of the accession of very Important
representatives of the Erie board of directors.
The effect was not directly manifest In the
1'rle stocks, which were reactionary on profit
taking, but the clear evidence afforded of the
persistent policy among the controlling interests
of important railroads towards consolidation and
extension of Influence and representation had a
stimulating effect throughout the list. The cpal
en were tlrst affected as being most immediate
ly concerned, and the movement spread to th
central traffic connections of the trunk lines and
to all minor or connecting railroads In which
any community of interest or ownership couli
bo traced. Even the industrials and specatltles,
vfcleh hung back in the early dealings, recov
ered buoyantly to above Thursday night's close,
ft. Paul rose nearly four points and a, long Mst
of railroad stocks advanced from -one to three
Ivo! nts. Standard Oil sold at JvJl and !S07 a
share. Just what is the source of the special
n'ovement of cash which has offset the week's
cutgo to the subtreasury Is not definitely dis
closed, but the belief la general that It is con
noted with the payment of the Standard Oil
tMrldend. which was due to-morrow, and whic.i
mounts to 10.000.n). The conviction that som?
vt the mwt powerful financial Interests in the
country intended to foster eapy conditions in th
pir-ney market and the expectation of benefits
rext week from the payment of anticipated gov
ernment interest were the final effective Influ
ences In the buoyant outburst which ended tho
The bond market showed a large volume of
tit u lings and prices advanced, the securities
most notably affected being of the samo com
I an Irs as those in the stock market. Totai sal-,

LOCAL GRAIN AND PRODUCE.
Trnde Quite Active In Most Linea and
Values Rnlliifir Steady.
Wholesale merchants who expected a good
trade In December are not disappointed over the
business now In progress. In several lines large
Increases over the corresponding period last year
are reported, and with this steady prices are
the prominent features. In some lines where
higher prices had been looked for, as in iron,
steel, leather and staple groceries, such ad
vances have not materialized. In some descrip
tions of dry goods there is an easing off tend
ency developing, but as yet it is not marked, or
at lea3t quotations have not yet been reduced.
The produce market is active. Eggs, butter and
poultry are in good request at prices quoted. On
Commission row yesterday it was the best
day of this week, and on choice fruit very good
prices were obtained. Apples and oranges are
selling freely, with an unusually large supply.
Iirge quantities of Irish potatoes are being han
dled at prices quoted, which are good, when the
supply is considered. The flour market Is ouleL
Rut little doing in seeds.
The ft-cal grain market is without new feature.
Receipts are not reaching the expectations of
the grain men. Track bids yesterday, as report

Wheat and Oats a, Little Down, Corn a

Steady nnd a Little Improved.
CHICAGO, Dec. 14. A holiday dullness ruled
on 'Change to-day. "Wheat closed lie lower;, corn.
H8; higher; oats a shade lower, and pro
visions 2io Improved.
Wheat was a dull and uninteresting market,
the prox'mlty of the holiday season exerting
Us customary quieting influence over specula
tions. May opened unchanged to He lower, at
73He to "S'ic, the bull contingent having im
bibed a öraught .of encouragement from tha
Liverpool market, which fhowed a thade less
decline than did prices here yesterday. There
was little demand for wheat, however, and
during the afternoon' the market dropped to 73c.
At this figure commission houses bought baod
trately, probably for shorts who wanted to even
up their trades for the Christmas cessation of
business. Near the end of the session the mar
ket ruled steady on a prospect of a visible de
crease, and May rallied to 73'4c, at which the
market closed, Vc under yesterday. Seaboard
clearances In wheat and flour were equal to
SS5.000 bu. Primary receipts aggregated 781,000
bu, compared with 437,000 last year. Minneapolis
and Duluth reported 401 cars, against 467 last
week and 3S5 a year ago. Local receipts were
132 cars, 34 of contract trade. New Ycrk re
ported 19 loads taken for export.
Corn was dull; only a narrow professional
market. Light country offerings ' sustained
prices, although the undertone was rather eary
on favorable weather. Receipts were 374 cars,
none of contract grade. December sold between
36c and 37c, and closed Uc higher at 37c. May
ranged between 23c and 36c, and closed & a
up, at 36c.
Oats ruled extremely dull, with the tone
easier. In sympathy with wheat. May sold be
tween 23';ic and T?.c, and closed a hade down
at 23itf235;e. Receipts were 133 cars.
Provisions were dull and steady, prices being
maintained chiefly by a demand for lard and
ribs by an Influential operator. January pork
sold at between $12.33 and 812.224Jfl2.25, and
closed 24c Improved at 12.274- January lard
between $ß.92Vi and $.?0. closing 2'-c up at $6.90.
January ribs betwee-.i ?6.274Tit:.r,l and $6.23. with
the clcse 24c improved at $6.23'JZ6.274c.

II. Cattle Receipts. 1.2.J0; shipments, i6t. The
recelpt3 of cattle ordinarily "would not have been
censidered excessive but there is a continues
ebsence of choice stock, and the supply of other
grades was larger than required. There was a
fair demand for the best cattle in their class,
and sales were made usually at steady prices,
but they represented a very small proportion of
the offerings. The bidding for other kinds was
very backward and lower, and after considerable
hard work salesmen were finally forced to accept
about 10Q15C lower rrices. At the decline a very
fair clearance of all kinds was finally mad?.
Sales included Christmas steers as high as $5.
steers and heifers as high as $3.10, heifers as
high as $4.30 and cows as high as $4.25. Quota

Small Break In. Cotton Prices Phe

-Textiles and Cereals.
NEW YORK, Dec. 14.-R. G. Dun & Co.'s
weekly review of trade to-morrow will say:
Holiday trade has increased moderately,
and in wholesale staple lines no relapse
is seen either in volume of transactions
or in prices. Cold weather has helped New
York, but it is still behind the rest of the
country, for some recent losses from fail
ures in the textlje markets have fallen
rather heavily here. Collections in the
country continue good, and this relieves
anxiety which might otherwise- be felt over
the higher rates for money. Merchants'
accounts are in good position, so that new
hales of commercial paper are light even
for this season. Industrial conditions con
tinue with no great accumulation of new
merchandise In any quarter. In spite of
the break in cotton the market for fabrics
is still in good position, sellers having lit
tle to offer and nothing at cuts in prices.
A sharp rise to a minimum of J1.S5 in
the wholesale price of coal fully 23 cents In
two weeks reflects actual scarcity of the
product more than negotiations to har
monize the trade Even the estimates did
iot equal tha actual decrease in furnace
stocks ot pis iron during Novvmber, which
amounted to ol,0 tons, according to the
Iron Age. TIiIh authoiitj' reports an in
erearse in wcikly capacity of furnaces in
blast to tons on Dec. 1, which is
the lirst gain recorded since June. Cen
tral conelitlons as te partially manu
factureel and ilnished products in the iron
nnd steel industry are little changed.
Prices are hard and mills are working on
eld orders that will take them well into
the new year. At Pitts-burg there is still
ccmplalnt that new business is not offered,
but Chicago concerns nave no such ditll
culty. More Idle mills have tesumed and
little v.'Jtgre controversy Is heard. It is esti
mated that l.iaw.GCO tons of rails have been
ordered for next year's delivery. American
;rakers have scored atother triumph in
the African bridge contract secured In the
face of British competition.
Sales of wool at the three Eastern mar
ket increarot't to ,7S5,$00 pounds, against
5.267.S44 In the previous week. Exports of
cotton in November were valued at $15.051,
071 mor than in the same month last year,
mainly cwlng to an advance of 2.3 cents in
price. The enormous riso in quotations Is
shown by tho fact that a year ago the
average export price was 2.1 cents above
November, 1S)S, making 4.3 cents, or 2.7
rer cent., advance In two years. Ship
rrents in November fell to 841,845 bales,
bgainst 1,211.234 In the rrevious month, in
dicating that foreign spinners are less ur
gent for raw material. Port receipts have
teen heavy, and there was a collapse in
rrlco on th official estimates of the cur
rent yield at 10.100.000 bales, for a much
lower .'lguro was expected, and trailers
remembered 'that la?t year's prognostica
tions proved half a million bales below the
Cereals did not maintain their advar.ee.
Coffee has suffered from liberal reevlpts
at Brazilian ports, and No. 7 Rio i) 1
cent below the price a month ago.
Failures for the week were 210 In the
United States, against 21S last year, and
twenty-fix In Canada, against twenty-six
WHOLESALE BUSINESS SLACK,
lint Retail Trade Is in Immense Vol-
nme-Kearr Orders in Steel.
NEW YORK, Dec. 14. Bradstreet'g to
morrow will say: Favorable conditions rule
generally in all lines of seasonable trade.
Holiday preparations are, of course, domi
nant in retail business, and where this has
hitherto lagged it has been stimulated by
more seasonable weather. "Wholesale dis
tribution Is limited, as is natural at this
period, but Western jobbers are in re
ceipt of a fair reorder business. So far
the best reports as to retail trade come
from the West and South. In leading in
dustries the best report is still that made
by finished products of the iron and steel
Industry, but other favorably situated lines
are boots and shoes and lumber. New
business in the former is rather light at
wholesale, but manufacturers generally are
busily employed, and leather is firm in sym
pathy. A good export demand for the lat
ter is noted. The cereals are lower in price,
due to profit-taking on the late upward
move, the larger movement of supplies,
particularly of corn, which is favored by
the weather, and to less interest on the
part of foreign buyers.
In cotton the close of the week finds fu
ture quotations 8c lower and spots 4c off.
The goods market is eiulet, as is natural at
this perioel. and the high cost of raw ma
terial and the low cost ejf finished prod
ucts do not harmonize. Early spring trade
business, however, i3 fairly satisfactory.
The light-weight season in men's-wcar
woolen goods has proved disappointing, but
women's plain dress goods are well or
dered. Rather more has been done in for
eign wools, chiefly Australian, this week,
and Melbourne and London advices are of
firmer markets. Low-priced domestic wool
l.i rather weak, however.
While business in iron and steel, as a
whole, Is quieter than of late, there is no
apparent diminution i;t Ftrength, and actual
transactions in rails and plates compan
wtll with the best reconleel. One sale of
KJ.OOO tons of rails, divlded'between Eastern
and Western mills. Is reported, and other
sale will swell the week's business to
lOO.fX'O tons at the much-abused, but never
theless accepted. twenty-six-tlollar basis.
Another feature is the sale of ll.fciju tons for
export to Norway. The volume of rail or
ders already looked for next year Is de
clared to exceed all records. Although steel
piutes have advanced $1 ier ton, the Je
mand Is apparently undiminished, and large
pioducers are reported buying outside
makes to fill contracts. Here, again, large
orders for export are reported. As another
proof of stability, it Is reported that one of
the largest Pittsburg Interests has agreed
to tho present tcale of wages continuing
next year. Pig Iron is dull, except for
tome new business at Chicago, and per
ton ha a been conceded on besbemer at
PltUburs. EUlets are steady. Hardware
