In the last few days there has been a
M-ceturp to big crop-ideas and yesterday a

Bros, estimated the crop at U.SOO.OOO bales,
.ftaainst previous rumors that the estimate
.would be 14,250,000. A. Norden A Co.
'published their estimate of U.J55.000. The
traveller, of Weld k Co. gives his

Texaa this year has a better supply of
Hikers than ever before tn the history of
8tyie State. 'The Insurrections in Mexico
have distributed the laboring classes of
Chat country so much that thousands have
tjirae across the line into Texaa to get work
at fcMkrep themselves from starving. Mr.
Aoales states that his advices from Texas aay
Butt it U almost Impossible to get a seat on
V. 5it railroad trains in some parts of Texas
ylfitlhs to the migration of the Mexican
tickers from one part of the State to
M tjiiother in search of new work in the fields.

Sttikt the bumper crop of Texas may have
been handled with extraordinary rapidity

Wheat again nought a lower level, pur
sued by big receipts., declining foreign
markets and heavy liquidation. To many,
of the grain trade the Balkan situation
took lew threatening. Liverpool seemed
to feel the tame way, certainly, aa Its prices
were lowered V to Id. Antwerp too fell
lXo., Budapest 2Hc, Berlin to 1H0.
and Paris on some option H to-Me. All
this was considered striking testimony
to a tern apprehensive feeling In Europe
concerning the ultimate outcome of the
Balkan war In a rearrangement of the map
In the Near East. The flour trade too In
the Northwest was admittedly less active.
The export demand for wheat has fallen
off sharply. In short with prospects of what
might be termed a peaceful peace In South
east cm Europe, with hig receipts and with
a slack cash demand whether for home
or foreign account, prices weakened.
The flour mills at the Northwest. It Is
said, will close on Saturday. Foreign houses
were good tellers of wheat at Chicago
yesterday. December liquidation was a
feature. The only thing to check the de
cline was covering of shorts. New tow
levels were made on both December and
May deliveries. Argentine crop newa was
favorable. Spring wheat markets were
quite as weak as Chlrago.or the European.
On the other hand some were looking for
a rally after a decline of four days In suc
cession. The tendency Is to build up a good
short Interest. Although there Is no ex
port demand the country Is buying cash
wheat heavily In the Northwest. There
wns steady buying by commission houses
on a scaledown yesterday. In fact there
has been for three or four days past.
But tn the main the sentiment Is bearish
here. The spring wheat movement is ex
pected to continue large. The stock at
Minneapolis In five days has Increased
750,000 bushels. (Mowing crop reports are
being received from Argentina. .
Corn declined here and in Liverpool .as
well as Buenos Ayres. I'eorla reported
larger arrivals of new corn; It expected 60
cart there yesterday. December was espe
cially weak at Chicago. All the important
corn centres report Increasing receipts of
new crop. A point within fifty miles of
Chicago sent a car of new Nn. 2 yellow to
that market. New corn declined ic. at Chi
cago and old 2c. Liverpool declined J tol-Sd.
and Buenos Ayres U to !c. Chicago trad
ers were selling December and buying May.
The tendency is to accumulate a
considerable short Interest. "Thereby
hangs a tale" perhaps. Moit people are
bearish on corn. Colder weather was pre
dicted. That would favor husking and
marketing. Chicago had over fifty cars
of new corn. Covering of shorts seemed
to be about the only check on the decline.
Oats declined slightly. It was only
slightly, let it be observed, for good buy
ing of December took place. This buying
was done too by houses that are under
stood to want the oata to fill shipping en
gagements. Not a few of the shorts in
May deemed It advisable to cover. Avail
able stocks are not burdensome, to say
the least. One house at Chicago bought
700,000 bushels of May In covering shorts.

EUROPE BUYING COPPER HERE.

For the first time linearly two months
European copper consumers have entered

In tho trade say that Indications point to a
contlnuanco of this buying, It is known
that foreign supplies have been allowed to

Place Large Order.
The feature of tho day in the stoel market
was the report of an order to be placed by
the Chicago nnd Northwestern Railway
Company for lis new locomotives. Details
of the' transaction were aot made public,
but it Is understood that It will entail an
outlay of between 12,000,000 and 13,000,000.
It Is probable that the bulk of the order
will go to the American Locomotive Com
pany. Thla is the largest equipment order
to be given out by a railroad In torn
months. Th locomotive are to be de
livered In 1913.
It I also understood that the Delaware,
Lackawanna and Western, which ha had
out an Inquiry for twenty-two locomotives
and 3,200 freight car will shortly close the
contracts. Other equipment Inquiries in
clude two for light rails for foreign ship
ment, one from Peru and one from Brazil,
for a total of about 6.000 ton. Tha Boston
and Main Itallroad it also In the market,
having placed an order with th Baldwin
Locomotive Works for fifty consolidation
locomotives for delivery In the early spring.
Advice from the Pittsburg district state
that there Is a large demand for steel plates
and that plate makers are sold further
ahead than at any time in the past. A sur
prising feature of tho developments In this
line is that Inquiries have been greater than
bookings. Prices are steadily advancing
with Indications of even further Increase.
The United States Cant Iron Pipe and
Foundry Company advanced the price of
Ita product 11 a ton yesterday. It was said
that owing to tho Increases In the ptice of
pig Iron and the heavy demand for cast
Iron pipe this action was neoeesitry. The
company la now operating eleven of Ita
twelve plants, and when repair and exten
sions are completed the idle foundry will
be put Into operation. It was also sold that
the company now hat more orders on its
books and Is gettlnr better price than for
three or four years.
Steel orders continue to be heavy, The
United States Steel Corporation, It It under
stood, Is selling a large amount for delivery
during tbe'thlrd quarter of next year, and
since the first, of the month the dally busi
ness has been as high as 100,000 tons. This
Is not the dally average, but orders have
been coming in so liberally that a further
Increase In unfilled tonnage In the current
month Is predicted. This will probably
eertously Interfere with deliveries, and in
commenting on this situation the iron Trade
"Some of the leading steel and Iron man
ufacturers in the Pittsburg district are un
able to promise deliveries on finished prod
ucts until the third and In some Instances
the fourth quarter. The leading interest
continues to quote 11.43 on steel Dlatea
and Htructural shape and. most of the In
dependent mills are asking II. SO for forward
shipment. Several Interests, however, are
refusing to accept additional contracts
and some talk of an advance I heard."

Coffee declined both her and In Europe,
and what many regarded at quit aa sig
nificant, It failed to advance at Brazilian
markets, something on which not a little
emphasis wat laid, aa there were rumors
on Wednesday that Santos prices had
rallied. Yesterday's advices did not confirm
this rumor. What is more, costnd freight
quotations receded. The Interpretation not
unnaturally put upou this fact) was that
Brazilian holders are not Indisposed to sell
at current quotations. No attention was
paid to another Santos rumor that there
was a tendency to reduce Santos crop esti
mates. The rumor committee was In bad
odor. A good deal of the business here was
in switching from near to far off months.
There was not a little local liquidation and
also a certain amount of hedge selling
against recent purchases in Brazil. On the
whole the developments of the day were
not of a kind to encourage aggressive ope
rations on the long side, though It Is true
that leading local bulls were understood
to be giving more or less support. Also
It Is to be remarked that the decline was

Argue With President
TALK OP NEW HAVEN DEAL
Abandonment of Work on Rail
road Project Has Excited
All New England.
A question of railroad policy and
lnanoe which Is now filling many oxcltod
columns of Kew England newspapers
and is the talk of Eastern railroad men may
be answered in this city in the next two
The question ia this: Will the Grand
Trunk Railway permanently abandon
ita projocted extensions to Boston and
Providence and effect an understanding
with the New Haven road whereby tho
Grand Trunk gets terminal in these
cities by using the New Haven's tracks,
or will the Grand Trunk, refusing to make
an agreement with ita rivnl, go ahead
with its interrupted plans and build its
own extensions from White Kiver Junc
tion to Boston and from Palmer, Mass.,
President E. J. Chamberlin of the Grand
Trunk came to New York yesterday
and put up at tho Waldorf. President
Mellen of the New Haven was alto in the
city. No word could be got from either
as to whether or not they had conferred.
It won said that Uiero had been a con
ference and probably would be another
It is certain that there will be a con
ference at the Waldorf at 10 o'clock this
morning between President Chamberlin
and the Attorney-General of Rhode Island!
Herbert A. Rice, and that .William C
Bliss, chairman of the Publio Utilities
Commission of Rhode Island, will par
ticipate in It.
Tho State of Rhode Island, through
Representative O'Shaunessy, laid be
fore the Department of Justice in Wash
ington yesterday formal complaint
against the alleged agreemont between
the two big trunk lines. To-day Attorney-
General 'Rloe, representing Gov, Pothier
of Rhode Island, will tell President Cham
berlin of the Grand Trunk just how badly
the smallest New England State feels
and what it purposes to do if the Grand
Trunk decides to abandon the line from
Palmer to Providence.
"If the Grand Trunk and the New York,
New Haven and Hartford persist in car
rying out the doal," Attorney-General
Rice said last night, "the State of Rhode
Island will unquestionably resort to re
taliatory measures and neither road will
profit by the undertaking."
"The Grand Trunk baa torn up our
State from Providence to the Massachu
setts line at Blackstone," Mr. Rloe con
tinued. "I understand that it has already
spent about $4,000,000 in preparing ita'
right of way between Palmer-and Provi
dence. It haa two boats being built in
vtumington. Dei., war. were to piy be
tween Providence and New xork in com
petition with the New England Naviga
"The State of Rhode, Island haa already
spent half a million dollars on wharfage
and other harbor improvements in antici
pation of the Grand Trunk's arrival and
the representations of the Grand Trunk
that better facilities would be needed.
"A pier has been especially constructed
to meet the convenience of the railroad.
On it tba tracks are depressed so that the
doors of freight care will be on a level
with the pier as requested by the Grand
"Moreover, the city of Providence is
spending 1125,000 on the harbor at l-'ields
Point to provide facilities for the Grand
"It is generally understood' here the
Attorney-Oenerai paused between sen
tences and phrased them very carefully
"that the drand Trunk and New Haven
roads began conferences two months ago
and that A. W. Nmithers of Ixnidon,
who is chairman of the Grand Trunk's
board of directors, took part. It is-rumored
that at this conference the entire
outlay of the Grand Trunk Railway in
ita extension from Palmer to Providence
was discussed, and that reimbursement
of the Grand Trunk for these expenditures
was also under discussion.
"I am credibly advised that If in
vestigation is started by the appointment
of a committee of Congress, under the
direction of Attorney-Uencrol Wicker
sham, them arn those who will place
honor before railroad advancement and
will reveal the whole transaction. Neither
Mr. Mellen nor Mr. Chamberlin haa as
yet denied tho substance of these rumors,
and I think that both would be too honor
able to do so in case of an investigation."
Mr. Rice wished it said that in meeting

Attorney-General Wlckersham, it was
said in Washington last night, will closely
watch development of the proposed
agreement between the two roads, and the
federal Uovernment will act promptly tai
case tne agreement is in violation of law.
The officials of Uie Department of Justice
have no definite information aa to tho
sco pa of tho proposal. If it in merely
a trackage agreement br which the
, Grand Trunk, through tha payment of
rental, is permitted to use) tne new uaven s
right of way the Government will prob
ably be powerless, says a Washington
despatch to TllK Hun. If, however, tho
agreement contains features wliich result
in suppressing competition or restraining
trade tho Government will of cotirso
intervene. No action will lie taken until
Mr. Wlckersham is fully informed as to
thn nature of the undertaking which
Presidents Mellen and Chamberlin are
supposed to be considering-
It was said hero yesterday , apparently on
thn best of authority, that the contemplated
agreement merely permits the Grand
Trunk to uso the) New Haven's tracks
ami is in no sense a trafilo agreemont.
From the samo authority it was learned
that if the Grand Trunk does use tho New
Haven's tracks in reaching Boston and
Providence it will consider itself u com
President CTham berlin said yesterday
that his object in coming to this city
was to confer with representatives of
the Wabash road relative to the renewal
of on agreement. The Wabash now
uses the Grand Trunk's tracks between
Illack Hock, Canada, and Detroit, and
the agreement' is about to expire.
President K. H. Kitzhugh of the Central
Vermont is also in town. It was he who
negotiated with the Rhode Islanders
when thn now Una from Palmer to Provi
