i the Year Ends with Wheat Still
on Decline but Somewhat
Stubborn.
Nothing in the Foreign News to
Weaken ItLiverpool I
Fairly Strong.
But Receipts Here Heavier, with
a Liberal Increase in
Stocks.
Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce, Dec. 31.
lie year closed on 'change with the bears In
control and prices again lower. May wheat down
early to 77@77&c. The situation Is mixed.
Opinion Inclines either way. There Is an im
portant bull element that believes In higher
prices later, and is content to wait. Some time,
they say, it will be found that the wheat ifi
wanted, and that it Is legitimately -worth the
money. However this may be, the bears have
control at present and do not seem afraid to sell
freely. Liverpool was not otr very much at
i/fc@l% lower, considering the sharp decline here
Saturday, nor was there anything especially
bearish in the foreign news. As for the re
ceipts, comparisons were lacking because of
the holiday a year ago, but there were 798 cars
of wheat received here, and this and the in
crease of 375,000 bu in local Btocks for two
days were the principal weakening influences.
Duluth received 38 cars. Chicago 137, Winnipeg
XOT against 120 Kansas City 1SS.OOO and
St. Louis 78.000 bu
In the world's figures there was a decrease
of 1,200,000 bu in the quantity on passage, leav
ing a total of 27,656,000 bu. World's shipments
were 8,ll-2,000 bu against 8,624,000 last week
and 9,408,000 a year ago.
As the trade is pretty evenly divided in
opinion, and this is the last day of the year,
the situation as viewed from either side may
be interesting. A bullish summary coming to
UcKinnon read as follows- "The year will
close with the greater part of the contract
took of wheat in Chicagoall except very
fancy premium gradesIn the hands of wealthy
speculators and investors to whom the holding
or the expenses It entails Is a comparatively
trifling matter. The holding was originally not
Well bought and now shows a large loss, a
lemalns to be seen if merchandising conditions
or speculative opportunities develop to pay a
profit to the present owners The domestic
merchandising position, promises well as the
flour situation is far different from that of a
year ago When the trade was loaded with stocks
bought on the Russian famine prospect."
Evidently it is opinion here that after Jan. 1
Improving flour trade and better European de
mand will put wheat up Many feel that way
The bearish view of it Is fairly well repre
sented bv the following from Jackson of Chi
cago. He says: "The year of 1906 expires
with the wheat situation very weak, and with
being offerecda cheaper, taon EuropeI thans the cur-
rent Amerinprices an ncreae In the
wheat area of India, which crop win be ready
to harvest in March, tends to Intensify these
conditions. Since the fall months of 1905, when
the trade generally believed that Russia was
to withdraw from the exporting column, the
sentiment has been almost unanimous that wheat
values -would advance Since that tlrae prices
have declined 23c In the face of every imagin
able bullish advice that could he produced,
and, strange to say, the sentiment at this writ
ing is of the same character, In spite of steady
and perceptible development in favor of lower
prices. Chicago has increased its stock of con
tract wheat to the largest proportions since
1900, and has established a carrying charge on
May delivery only exceeded In recent years dur
ing the panic period of 1803 1R05. The World's
available supply on Jan. 1 will be the largest
on that date since 1806 The northwestern and
(Canadian country elevators have record stocks
of wheat which will be released as soon as
the railroads can furnish transportation, and it
is possible that the visible supply will increase
for a longer period than ever nefore."
Primary receipts 1,388,000 bu. Clearances,
13,000.
The market rallied near the close on short
covering induced by the reported sale of 40,000
brls flour to Europe by a Minneapolis mill.
Liverpool cabled: "Wheat easy, %d lower at
opening, influenced by weaker American cable*
and the cheaper offerings of La Plata. At the
close there was some little steadiness, prices
nhowing slight reaction, dne to shorts covering
Corn, easr, unchanged at opening. Toward tho

January and with unexpectedly heavy snip
ments from Russia, prices showed a fractional
decline."
The visible increased all around, wheat 801,000
bu, corn 114.000. oats 44,000 The wheat total
la now 44,727,000 against 42,951,000 last year

GOSSIP O THE MARKETS
London to WhallonLiquidation of a big ac
count in Canadian Pacific Is still continuing.
The shares are nearly 2 points below the open
ing. The bank will probably secure the bulk
of the million pounds cold offered today ad
dition to Which there is considerable ronte
from Paris. The market is of a semi-holiday
character.
J. D. Fraaer from ChicagoHeavy commission
house selling led by Wrenn, Prlngl and local
longs, buying was entirely on resting orders in
hands of commission houses.
Piper from Chicago: Wheat opened weak on
general selling by commission houses and pro
fessionals. Ware and Leland leading buyers.
Shearson sold 300,000 bu May wheat. Corn
opened a shade firmer on general rains and
mild weather and local receipts, cash nouses
offering freely.
New York to 0. E. LewisA flurry ln call
money is expected and an irregular stock market
is probable.
Chicago to WatsonWheat weak under scat
tered liquidation on the lower Minneapolis mar
ket and larger recelptB and heavier Russian ship

Randolph to PiperIt Is generally believed
that the recent liquidation, particularly* in
Reading, means that a highly speculative
Hebrew Interest in this stock has liquidated and,
temporarily at least, has been eliminated as a
factor in its? manipulation. Looks as if the
stock would dirto buy now.
New York to LewisIn our opinion stocks
will have a good advance next month. There
is an uneasy feeling, however, over possible
financial troubles, and it might be wise to hold
off a day or two until we see if anything is
wrong.
I-oehler says. Tight money caused oy the in
adequate railroad service in all parts of the
country, and consequent congestion in an lines of
business, has finally discouraged enough holders
to cause liquidation of a decided character in
wheat. The situation based on supply and de
mand is unchanged. There is, however, one
feature that may in the end modify it, and that
