WEAKER TURN IN ALL THE GRAIN MARKETS
Wheat Sold Off Under Pressure of
Heavier Receipts and Bearish
Statistics.
VISIBLE INCREASE 8,718,000 BU.
Moderate Declines in Liverpool—
Clearances 540,000 Ha.—
General Sewi.
Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce, Nov. 18.
—Liberal Pecelpts in the northwest and an
easier feeling abroad threw off tie wheat
market to st«t the week. Fourteen hundred
and twelve cars came Into Minneapolis and
Duluth, the bulk of It or 1,094 cars into Min
neapolis. Liverpool closed %@">4d lower on
whaat and scattered on corn, or Vfed higher to
Sud lower. Foreign exporting countries in
creased th-eir shipments somewhat. Coarse
grains were easier. Against the combined
effect of these items it was impossible to hold
the market. May opened %c oft, at 72^c, and
•oil down to 72(g172iic, and December sold off
from 70%<3 to 68%0- The visible supply made
» material Increase. This latter item had
**en pretty well discounted. It has been evi
dent from the increasing primary receipts
and lighter shipments that stocks at western
points would help along a visible increase,
and a showing of about 3,000,000 to 3,500,000
was expected. The figures showed 3,718,000
bu increase, making the present visible 45,
--677,000 bu. This is still 16,684,000 bu less than
the visible at this time last year.
America shipped 4.983,000 bu for the week,
while Russia and the Danube ports shipped
5,€24,000 bu. India shipped 168,000; Argentine
36,000, and Australia 160,000 bu. The total
figures were 8,971,000 bu, against 9,362,000 last
week and 7,774,000 bu a year ago. The
amount on. passage shows an increase for the
w«ak of 1,920,000 bu. Liverpool stocks de
creased 144,000 bu, leaving the total 2,920,000
bu. Wheat and flour clearances, 640,000 bu.
Primary receipts were 1,660,000 bushels,
tgainat 1,310,000 bushels last year, the fig
ures for shipments being missing. Minneapo
lis received 1,094 cars, against 760, and Du
luth 318 cars, against 106 last year.
The market sold off again later, but near
the oloee rallied in part. May wheat closed
at 78%®78%c; December at 69%@69%c. Chi
cago May closed 75ft@75%c.
The cash demand was good. With a declin
ing option there was the usual disposition
to hold off, and on No. 3 wheat in undesira
ble ears there was some dragging. On the
whole the demand was active and the mar
ket withstood the pressure of heavy receipts.
No. 1 sold at l%c over December for the
bulk. No. 2 wheat sold at 66%@670. Rejected
»nd no grade ranged from 60%@64%c.

OTHER GRAIN MARKETS
CHICAGO GRAIN
Steadier, but Easier Opening in the
Wheat Pit—Corn Lower.
Chicago, Nov. 18.—The wheat pit opened
steady but a trifle easier to-day, as a result
of Liverpool's response to the Saturday de
cline here. December sold a shade to %@%e
lower, at 72% cto 72c. Weed-end statistics
were moderately bearish, which also influ
enced a lower trend of prices. Local re
ceipts were small. Northwestern receipts
had increased materially, as had likewise the
amount of breadstuffs afloat. The visible
supply was estimated at a large increase, and,
influenced by a mixed trade, prices hugged
72c for December during the first hour. Re
ceipts were 63 cars, one contract; Minneapo
lis and Duluth reported 1,412 cars, a total
for the three points of 1,415 cars, against
1,837 last week and 951 a year ago. World's
shipments were 8,972,000 bu for the week,
against 9,862,000 bu for the week before and
7,774,000 bu last year. The increase on pas
sage was 1,920,000 bu.
Wheat fluctuated narrowly for a time, but
on the heavily increased visible supply re
port December dropped off to 71% c. Cover-
Ings for shorts brought a small reaction and

71% c

December corn opened %@%c lower, at
59% cto 69%e, on lower cables. Receipts
were email, but the weather was good for a
free movement, and the Danubian and Argen
tine districts were reported as shipping more
than America. A little later there was a
small demand that brought December to 60c,
but this failed soon and prunes dropped back
again to 69% c. Toward the close of the first
.hour the market turned heavy, but without
pressure. Receipts were 112 cars.

STOCK PRICES FALLi
Railroads Within Influence of N. P.
Settlement Depressed.
IMPROVEMENT THAT LASTS NOT
Losses Extend to the Entire Active
List and tlie Market Be
comes Very Dull.
New York, Nov. 18.—Stocks of railroads
within the influence of the northwestern rail
road settlement were depressed at the open
ing on the threat of legislative obataeles to
the plan. Union Pacific dropped IV* and St.
Paul a point, and other stocks were lower in
sympathy, but there were points or firmness
elsewhere in the list. The gain in Denver
&. Rio Grande reached 1%. American Loco
motive stocks were in demand at advances
of about a point each.
The transcontinental stocks became steadier
when bull manipulation developed in the spe
cialties. This was most pronounced in Metro
politan Street Railway, Amalgamated Cop
per and Consolidated Gas, which rose from
1 to 2 points. The general run of stocks,
however, did not vary much from last week's
close, and the prices reached on the rally
were not long maintained. The effect of
selling Sugar and the announcement 'of
$4,000,000 gold engaged for export forced the
market off before 11 o'clock. Sugar and New
York Central declined a ,point. Metropolitan
Street Railway \y z and the Pacifies and gran
gers receded to the lowest.
Losses were extended throughout the active
list In the second hour on realizations and
short selling, induced by uneasiness as to the
monetary outlook. Quite a number of the
leaders ruled between 1 and 2 points under
last week's close. Pacific Mail dropped 2^i.
Notable exceptions were the Pacific Coast
stocks and General Electric, which advanced
1%@2. Wells-Fargo jumped 18 points, to 195.
American Express roee a point and United
States Express %. The market hardened be
fore noon, but became Intensely dull.
The pressure increased upon less prominent
stocks, and Twin City Rapid Transit, Illinois
Central, Erie second preferred, Chicago, In
dianapolis & Louisville, Chicago Terminal
preferred, Chicago & Alton and Minneapolis
& St. Louis yielded from 1 to 3 points. Prices
of the leaders were scaled down further
through midday selling, being especially felt
In Atchison, Missouri Pacific, New York Cen
tral, St. Paul, Union Pacific, Brooklyn Tran
■it. People's Gas and Amalgamated Copper.
There was an Improvement in the tone of
the market despite additional engagements of
gold, bringing the total to 16,500,000. Where
recoveries occurred they did not exceed }£
per cent, but were strongly held in the face
of a later break to par by Missouri Pacific.
Other Gould stocks became easier in sympa
thy, but the general market became very dull.
The coalers rallied strongly in the last
hour, New Jersey Central rising 3, Delaware
& Hudson, I 1* and Lackawanna 2%, and the

CATTLE—LocaI receipts fell considerably 1
short of estimates, being only about one- |
third of last Monday's supply and only about
one-half of the supply a year ago to-day. 1
Eastern conditions warranted lower prices, !
but the strong demand here for both beef and
butcher offerings caused a full, steady mar
ket. There was only a fair inquiry for
stockers and feeders at prices which ruled
steady. Sales:

HOGS—Aggregate receipts of hogs at lead
ing markets to-day were again very liberal,
being about 73,000, as compared with 61.00U
last Monday and 71,900 a year ago to-day.
Early conditions here warranted weaker
prices and sales right from the start generally
ruled a flat nickel lower than Saturday. The
best on sale sold from $5.40 to $5.56, with
mixed grades selling largely from $5.20 to $5.35
and common rough packers at $0.20.
