WHEAT OFF O N SOUTHWEST SNOW: REPORTS
May Strong Until Noon, When Kan-
- - sas and Missouri Reported
Precipitation.
The Early News a Mixture with the
Bull Items Still More
Prominent.

World's Visible Increase LightAr
mour Against the Pit in
Chicago.
Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce, Dec.
9.Wheat was up and down In narrow
range In the opening hour, with firmness
shown in all markets, but little disposition
to trade very heavily either way. In Chi
cago the entire pit crowd appeared to be
fighting the big bull and in other markets
pit traders waited to see what Armour
might do before making new ventures.
Minneapolis December was dead, with
scarcely a trade noted. May sold from
Sl%c to 82%c and July between 81%@
81%c. with no heavy business in either
option The principal bull item of the
morning was the Missouri state report,
which showed not only an area 187,000
acres under that of last year, but a con
dition 11 points lower, or 85, against 96.
This was the third important state report
of winter wheat that was bullish and it
caused the shorts to hesitate. Dry weather
in the southwest is the feature now. There
has been no serious damage, nor has any
been claimed. There is probably no sec
tion that is not in fair condition and a
good rain or snow would make everything
all right. Still, the lackof moisture re
mains a very important "matter and one
that will bear watching. St. Louis mail
advices to Minneapolis houses are to the
effect that good precipitation over the
dry districts within a week will allay all
fear, and this is the time when rains or
snows may reasonably be expected, hence
no cause for nervousness exists. To the
speculative element, however, looking
ahead far anything likely to develop into
an important factor, this dry weather in
the southwest is now a matter of leading
interest. The map shows general snows,
most of them light, but more or less pre
cipitation in Manitoba, Minnesota, the
Dakotas, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri and
Kansas. There is not enough moisture as
jet shown to relieve the southwestern dry
weather, but conditions are favorable for
more. Temperatures are moderate.
Larger receipts, weak cables and the
increase in local stocks, which now
show a gain on the week of 600,000 bu,
were leading bear items. Broomhall cabled
that the Liverpool dullness and sagging
tendency is due in good part to the In
creasing wheat stocks at Russian ports.
Other foreign markets were Indifferent.
Kansas City showed up heavily with 269,-
IIOO- bu secured, against 46,000 bu last year,
and St. Louis had 86,000 bu, against 38,000
bu. Minneapolis received 445 cars, against
626. Duluth 85, against 24, and Chicago 99,
against 43.
The Chicago Daily Trade Bulletin makes
the total available world's wheat supply
174,000,000 bu, against 185,000,000 bu at this
date last year.
Bradstreet's figures, delayed from yes -
terday, showed an increase of 603,"00 bu
in the world's visible supply. East of the
which total Manitoba shows 63,000 bu, and
Ttockies the increase is 2.193,000 bu, in
and northwestern interior elevators 82,000
bu gained. The quantity afloat for
Rurope decreased by 1,600,000 bu, leaving
a net gain of 593.000 bu.
Primary receipts 1,169.000 bu, a-gainst
1.057,000 bu, and shipments 512,000 bu,
against 792,000 bu. Wheat and flour clear
ances 384,000 bu.
After noon reports began coming of
snow over Kansas and Missouri and it was
reported snowing over a wide area south
west. This was the cause in some part of
the closing weakness whioh carried May
off to 8ivs(ft.81%c closing it at the low fig
ure. December closed at 79%c and July
at 81@bl%c.
Ne w York reported 11 loads sold for ex

Special to The Journal.
Jefferson City, Mo., Dee. 9.The first
report of the Missouri State Agricultural
society made public this morning shows a
decrease of about 7 per cent in the acre
age seeded to winter wheat. The state
has 2,645,000 acres compared with 2,832.-
000 acres estimated by the same authority
on Dec. 1 last year, a loss of 187.000 acres.
The condition of the growing plant is
placed at 85 against a condition of 96 a
year ago. Dry weather is noted in many
districts, and in some places lack of suffi
cient moisture has injured the plant. The
report shows a general lowering of condi
tion over the entire state, rather than any
severe injury, extremely poor stands be
ing shown in only a few scattered locali
ties. The growth is backward and the
plant les forward than usual at this date.
The yield of corn on the last crop is
given at 204,000,000 bu. against 264,000,000
bu in the previous season.

WHEAT TRADERS HESITATECORN LOWER
OATS LITTLE CHANGED.
Chicago, Dee. 9. 1'iiees in the wheat pit to
dav began about where they left off last night,
but the market was less active, there being a
disposition manifested on the part of the pit tiad
eis to await the action of the leader of the
bull movement. The big bull operator was again
on the buying side of the market and prices
resj/onded slightly to this demand. May advan
cing to 82%e, after opening unchanged to %c
lower at 82@S2%c. Cables were lower, but the
Missouri crop leport was bullish. Minneapolis,
Duluth and Chicago reported receipts of 629
cars, against 848 last week and 693 cars a
jear ago.
Prices held steady until late in the day when
coii'inisison houses began an active selling move
ment, and with an absence of support from the
leading long prices started the downward grade.
1 here was a lot of wheat came out on this de
cline on stop-loss orders, and prices broke sharp
ly. May selling off to Sl'-ic where it closed
with a loss of %c for the day.

Ne w York. Dec. 9.Trading for a new
account in London to-day developed de
mand for American securities and a sym
pathetic effect was seen in the opening
dealings of the stock market here in a
general advance of a fraction. Amalga
mated Copper was carried up a point and
General Klectric 1%. A few of the minor
j specialties^, showed some declines. The
opening -was firm.

northern,
Profits were hastily taken in Amalga
mated and other stocks became heavy in
sympathy. Amalgamated lost all of its
rise and the average level of 'prices was
slightly below yesterday's close.
Steady buying of Brooklyn Transit dis
turbed the shorts in that stock and they
scrambled to cover, bidding the price up
on themselves until it reached 50%, a
rise of 3%. This demonstration of
strength checked the general selling and
the market recovered to the opening
range.
Manhattan and Metropolitan Securities
moved up 1, Metropolitan Street Railway
1%, Anaconda 2% and Brooklyn Union
Gas 5. Lake Shore sold at 275 for 100
shares, compared with the previous
transaction at 334% on Jan. 5. Brooklyn
Transit reacted a large fraction and the
general market became dull.
A renewed advance of 2% in Amal
gamated lifted the rest of the market to
the top again in sympathy, Brooklyn
Transit included. The general movement
was narrow.
Advances over last night of a point were
made in Ne w York Central, Rock Island
preferred and Colorado Fuel. Chicago
Union Traction rose 1%, Lackawanna 2,
Westinghouse Electric 2% and Chicago,
St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha 3%. The
market fell back a fraction and became
dull again.
Bonds were irregular.
Special stocks were taken in hand from
time to time and bid up vigorously by
the bulls to revive interest on the long
side. St. Paul, Pennsylvania, Missouri
Pacific, Erie second "preferred, United
States Steel preferred and Sugar were
benefited to the extent of about a point
by these tactics. Brooklyn Transit was
the real feature of the speculation, the
heavy accumulation of this stock lifting it
to 52%, with the buying for both, ac
counts on a large scale. Amalgamated
extended its advance to 48 and Long
Island jumped 4.
More activity and strength developed in
other local traction stock as a result of
the buoyancy of Brooklyn Transit. Man
hattan, Metropolitan Street Railway, Met
ropolitan Securities and Consolidated Gas
rose from 2% to 4%. The spurt In these
stocks was attended by a revival of old
rumors of a merger. Realizing became
heavy in Brooklyn Transit in face of the
bulge in the other tractions and it reacted
1%. Raihoad and the metal stocks fell
off rather sharply, St. Paul and United
States Steel preferred, losing a point. The
market rallied again before 2 o'clock.
A renewed demonstration for the ad -
vance carried the Erie, Reading, Delaware
& Hudson, Union Pacific and People's Gd,s
a point or moi'e over last night. Denver &
Rio Grande preferred gained 1%. Under
cover of this, excessive profit taking pro
ceeded elsewhere, completely wiping out
the rise in railroad stocks. United States
Steel preferred dropped to 57 and Amalga
mated .saved less than a point of its ad
uan'ce. The Ne w York Public Utilities re
acted between 1 and 2 points. Tho mar
ket steadied at the dedine, but the clos
ing was heavy and dull. ^

HEAVY SHOET INTEREST IN PENNSYLVA-
NIA MAY S0TFEK.
The Waldorf Hotel gosslper says: The ques
tion whether the bull party will be able to force
the bulk of the short interest in Pennsylvania
to cover continues to be discussed With avidity.
Close observers agree that this is one of the
few stocks in which there has not been a
heavy liquidation of short accounts. Yet, dur
ing the day, according to these authorities, the
volume of these commitments in Pennsylvania
was enormous. The stock has been sold by bear
operators on a scale upon the company's large
boriowiugs with such amazing confidence as to
suggest the theory that the capital borrowed had
been Inetrlevably lost. Yet the Pennsylvania
company is lending it at an excellent rate of
interest, its earnings continue far larger than
anv other system's and it still pays 6 per cent.
Si.TTSd speculators say it wil be most surprising,
therefore, if the gieat short Interest In the
shares is not forced to cover before the bull
movement culminates.
