Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce, Feb.
.f.Wheat was very excited to-day, sell
ing: up and down by quick sharp changes.
I The news was warlike. Traders were
iinuoh at sea. I was realized that war
might come over Sunday. Hence the pit
I was the center of a lively trade made up
of buying by those who look for a wild
jopening on Monday in case a fight is re-
}17,
orte or anything more serious develops
the general situation, and those who
.had long wheat and were afraid to stand
'over Sunday for fear that the market may
open down in case there is no bad news.
Minneapolis May wheat sold on the curb
at S4%c, opened at 93%@94c, and broke to
t2%@92
4c. A rumor came along by wire
to the effect that the'Japanese minister at
I8t. Petersburg had asked for his pass
ports, and May went to 93%c in one jump.
Tho close was on reaction to 92%c.
In Chicago wheat opened wild and high
er, chiefly because of the decline of 5-16
jln console and the filling of some buying
.orders but later it was more steady
with moderate general trade. Northwest
receipts small and cables without especial
i change. Chicago said it is a war market
lus well as a congested one, and a hard
lone to guess There was very moderate
realizing in all the pits on the early
bulges, this is the reason why prices
diopped down some. Later there was fair
i only and operators became quite nervous,
afiaid something or other would come
I up to radically change \alues, and so
Were inclined to keep close to shore.

New York, Feb. 6.The stock market
opened activa and unsteady but the de
clines were slight in response to the de
pression in foreign markets over the war
outlook. Southern Pacific fell Penn
sylvania & Southern Railway preferred
and Ice preferred a point.
Heavy selling of Pennsylvania at a de

some others.
Chicago & Eastern Illinois certificates
dropped 4, Long Island 3, and Pressed
Steel Car 2%. United States Steel pre
ferred and Wabash preferred resisted the
decline, the former advancing but the
continued weakness of Pennsylvania kept
the market unsettled.
The market came to a standstill before
the bank statement appeared and rallied
sharply on the issuance of the statement.
The decrease in reserves of over $2,000,000
disappointed the expectation of an in
crease of about that much but the moder
ate expansion of the loan item was viewed
with satisfaction.
Pennsylvania "recovered a point and the
average level of prices rose over last night.
United States Steel prefeired and Wabash
preferred gained a point. Prices wavered
slightly on the recovery but the closing
was firm at practically the best.

MISCELLANEOUS
NEW YORK COTTON, Feb. 6.Extremely
bearish news caused a week opening in tb*
oottonm arket. Prices showed a loss of 40 to
55 points at the beginning, which had been
creased from 52 to 76 points -oa the active
months before the call was completed, with
March selling as low as 13.S8C, Mav at 14.05c
and July at 14.08c Later there was a small
rally on covering, but the market ruled fe\ei
uh
Later, New Orleans became firmer and a cov
ering movement set in here that In connection
with local and soutlun bull support rallied the
market about 20 to 45 points. The advance met
very heavj selling, chiefly from outside sources,
and in the late trading the market was very
weak, being finally easy at a net decline of 40f
85 points. The closing prices were practically
the lowest, with Julv quoted at 18.99c. Sale's
wese estimated at 200,000 bales
Spot closed dull: middling uplands, 15.50c
middling gulf, 15.75c sales, 100 bales. Futures

NEW ORLEANS COTTON, Feb. The cot
ton market to-day showed a decline of from 30
to 63 points. It, however, had a holdout ap
pearance ymd shorts showed some auviety to
cover. The leading bull later bought quietlj
but heavily, and on these purchases the tone
became steadier and prices showed some Im
provement. The general feeling is more opti
mistic.
LIVERPOOL COTTON, Feb. 6The cotton
market opened steady, with prices irregular.
There was a large business but not much ex
citement until the last hour, when prices ga^e
way in some cases 25 points from the highest.
Later they rallied a little, but again weakened,
closing 4@12 points lower than yesterday's
closing, except October and November, which
was 1 point higher.
NEW YORK COFFEE, Feb. 6.A new page

750 bags were traded In. On Tuesday the total

BAD EFFECT OF THE COTTON BREAK AND
PENNSYLVANIA LOAN.
The Waldorf-Astoria gossip says: The
announcement that the Pennsylvania com
pany has borrowed S50.000.000 has Unques
tionably depressed sentiment. Even among
people who have been steadfast bulls it
has caused a revision of speculative views
and dashed the hopes of these who have
looked for a substantial rise. These ob
servers feel that for the time being the
most that can be expected in way of im
provement is rallies, one of which should
be near, for the short interest is becoming
extended.
The further big drop in cotton was a
factor and is said to have caused a good
deal of selling of stock by people who lost
heavily by the great fall in the prices of
the staple the last two days. Aside from
this, according to observant brokers, there
was little liquidation, what there was be
ing speculative.
President Cassatt says the money bor
rowed by Pennsylvania is to be used for
^providing for expenditures alreymad
?or simi"iar"wOTk~to"be"done this yearr'and
that the loan will be permanently financed I
before its maturity. The money is not!
to be used to purchase or control any i showed no improvement the first two days

strong pi ices with most of the good kinds
going at $5 and a few choice calves up to

good grades at around $30@35, but the
bulk of the common to fair kinds have to
sell as killers. Continued cold weather is

\ided there were no material changes to
day. The strength in the grain and pro
vision markets, and probable war in the
far east, will tend to hold prices at their
present level but eastern packers are very
bearish and the future market will bear
close watching.
SheepThere were about 19,600 sheep
received here this week against 81,156 last
week and 27,293 the same week last year.
The market weakened in sympathy with
eastern declines to the extent of about 10
15c during the first half of the week, but
the feeling strengthened Friday on sheep
and some of the loss was regained, while,
in the lamb trade, the choice kinds are the
only ones now commanding last week's
closing figures. Choice fed western lambs
sold Friday at $5.50, good yearling wethers
at $4.75, wethers as high as $4 and most
of the goods ewes from $3.25 to $3.40.

A GOOD PLACE TO AVOID
In the northern Shan states, on the bor
der of Burma, there is a tribe call ed the
Wild Was These people propitiate with
human skulls the demons whom they woi
ship. Outside every village in their coun
try there are many posts, all in one line,
decked with human skulls. A niche is cut
in the back of each post, with a ledge on
which the skull can rest and grin thru a
hole in front of it. Every village has a
dozen and some as many as a hundred of
these head posts. Fresh skulls are in spe
cial request at harvest time, and are pur
chased for large sums, those of distin
guished visitors being particularly desired.
