GRAIN MARKET STAGNANT
PROFIT TAKING AND FREI2 SELLING
aiar Corn and Oats Were Sympathetic
1 and Went Down. Slightly Pro-
visions Showed Strennrtli
and Closed Higher.
CHICAGO. Dec. 9. The grain and proTlsloa mil
ieu -were dull to-day. 'Whet was firm early, but
eased off on profit taking and rather tre celling
against weekly calls, dosing Uc under yesterday
tor Hay. May corn and May cats closed a shade
lover and srorlslons 285c better.
The nheat market was steady at the opening vita
the Initial figures tor May unchanged from yester
day, at 70US70HC. Cables vat steady and re
ceipts light, but this support failed In the face of
free selling against veelly calls and some profit
taking. The Argentine news vaa confusing by rea
son of the conflict In the reports, a private wire de
claring the weather unsettled, -while Liverpool as
serted that climatic conditions were favorable and
that the Argentines would hare 75,000.000 bushels
exportable surplus. A shade more credence w&ia
given the English advices. May ranged from C9;ic
to TOUc, closing Uc down at ESUS'Oc Primary re
ceipts were K3.&00 bushels, against 1.1S4.S00 last
year. Minneapolis and Duluth reported 4C9 cars,
against 31 "art week and S34 a year ago. Local re
ceipts were CC csrs. 11 of contract grade. Clear
ances were 2S0.GQO bushels. Primary receipts for the
week showed a falling oS of about 6,000,000 bushels
under the corresponding week last year. Towards
the close the market felt some uneasiness over the
money situation in New York. The Inanimation of
business was due largely to the scarcity of decisive
statistics and partly to the fact that it was Satur
day. Corn was steady, but very dull, end held on the
wet weather, prospects cf rain and the good all rail
demand. Local professional bulls bought May. Re
ceipts here were 225 cars. Liverpool was 1c higher
on spot, which was something of a support. Stocks
here are expected to increase 250,000 bushels. Clear
ances were 159.000 bushels. May opened a shade up.
ranged from 32"ic to S3Uc. closing a shade under
yesterday at 32Ti833c
Oats held their own In spite of the dullness, but
trade was quiet and the range Tery narrow. Light
receipts, together wltr- the supporting factors In
corn, were a steadying influence. Receipts here were
149 oats. May sold from 24c to 24Ug21Uc. closing
a shade down at 24824HC Clearances were 23,090
. bushels, stocks are expected to show a moderate
Provisions opened strong and although the market
met considerable commission house liquidation con
tinued steady throughout. Hogs were up a trlfie at
the yards and Liverpool better for bacon, condi
tions which supported the price. Trade was not
active and fluctuations accordingly narrow. May
pork sold from $9.974 to J10.00B10.05. closing 5c
over yesterday at $10.05; May lard from 15.50 to J5.55
GE.5TH and closed ic better at $5.575. and May
ribs from $5.35 to $5.374, closing 25,85c up at

An easier feeling pervaded the market yesterday,
aiming wheats were In good demand and sold very
well. But the low grades were dull and lower.
Liverpool was up a fraction and so was Paris, but
the Improvement was sufficient to affect values in
this country. The London Times reports the Ar
gentine crop prospects as excellent, and says with
the old wheat on hand that country will hare an
t exportable surplus of '0.000,000 bushels. And the
Trade Bulletin makes the world's visible 71.000.000
bushels, against 54.500.000 bushels this time last
year. After the receipt of this news the speculatlva
market weakened a little, and buyers of cash grain
held back and were bearish. Low grades were un
doubtedly lower, but there was a Question as to
milling samples, while if not off were at least weak
In sympathy with the poorer stuff. In Chicago May
sold down fie and here the same option lost c
and closed near the bottom. The cash market, as
said before, was uneven, and sympathized with the
Wtak feeling in futures. JCa. 2 bard aold at 6(J7c

Coming in a little more freely, but there was a
good demand for all offerings. Exporters were free
buyers of mixed, and white was firmer In sympathy.
The market as a whole was the quickest and sharp
est for some lime. Receipts at primary points were
slightly lighter than this time last year and the
cables were firm, though not quotably higher. But
while the cash market here showed some Improve
ment, speculation was light and showed no special
change from Friday. The May option, both here and
In Chicago, closing much the same as on the prev

The market yesterday ruled much the sane as
on the previous days of the week. A fair demand
was hsd from feed dealers and order men. But there
was no buying ahead. Futures in Chicago were
hardly so firm and the feeling here vrould probably
have been w taker, but for the better feeling and
freer movement In corn. The consumptive trade Is
about taking the receipts and as long as that Is the
case, prices may be expected to rule fairly steady.

The Chicago Times-Herald of rriday saysf Flax
seed people jesterday were treated to pyrotechnics in
the wiy of advancing fluctuations, although the vol
ume of business was small. On transactions which
aggregated less than 100.000 bushels there was an
advance of from 2c to 5c About half of this was
keld tiptop prices on the crop were made, the
December getting to 11.44, the May to $1.29. The
Dickinsons were In charge of the demonstration. The
shorts, however, were the ones really after the seed,
and the ones who kept the price Jumping. "I hae
rhlpping contracts to the extent of several hundicd
thousand bushels of seed," said one of the Dickinson
ptrty, "and It is obsolutely necessary for me. In or
der to keep my business contracts good, to have the
seed." That was the explanation from one side of the
seed crowd. From the other side came disgruntled
hints at manipulation and the claim that at every
effurt on the part of a short seller to get his contract
back there was a higher bid from some member of
the bull party. There was one point, howeer, on
which both the happy bull and the unhappy short
agreed. It was that the market was tied up In a
hard knot, and that every effort on the part of the
short resulted in drawing It tighter. Duluth set the
pace. It opens an hour cr so before Chicago, and was
up yesterday about 5c a bushel before the Chicago
trader opened his mouth or had a chance to. Jt was
a sort of torture, because the Chicago man who hap
pened to be short on the market knew to a certainty
there would be a wild time here, and at the same
time knew he could do nothing until the noon hour.
For th benefit of those who have not been keeping
track of this gentle operation it is worth explaining
that yesterday's flaxseed prices show an advance
within less than ninety aays oi aDout iuc a ousnei, a
fluctuation meaning either enormous profit or enor
mous loss to the man who has kept in the market
during that period.
NEW TORK, Dec 9. There was no change of any
importance In the dry goods market to-day. The de
mand for staple cottons is of ordinary character, and
supplies of brown bleached and coarse colored goods
continued Insufficient. Prints are in good request
at the new prices made this week. No change In
ginghams. High grade woven patterned fabrics ad
vanced 010 per cent. Print cloths quiet for regu
lars, but good demand for narrow odds: prices firm.

Stocks nnd lionds.
NEW YORK, Dec. 9. To-day's short session of
the Stock exchange was an animated one. due In
great part to the continued demoralization among
some of tho Industrial stocks. The determined liqui
dation manifest in Sugar, gave the tone to the
market from the opening and soon spread a conta
gion of weakness all through the industrial list.
OpeninK sales of 2,500 shares ran the price down
from 118 to 14415, compared with 147H last night.
The stock fell to 142?; before the appearance of the
bank statements and the covering movement by the
bears which followed the publication rallied the
price to above 144, together with the whole market.
The heavy offerings of Sugar brought out by this
advance again decided the tone of the whole market
and broke prices throughout the list. The last sale
of Sugar was at 1S3!4. the lowest, at a net decllno
cf 8K. American Tobacco kept the leader close
company, especially in the late break. It sold at
103, and on the next and last sale at 104, a net
loss of GH. There were w Ide breaches at other points
in the list of specialties, notably in Metropolitan
Street Railway, which fell an extreme S5;. The
steel and Iron stocks continued weak, but were not
so ulnerable as they had been recently, and they
held the late rally better than other specialties.
The railroad stocks were relatively much firmer than
the industrials. The extreme declines reached a
point In only a few of them. The late rally brought
prices of many railroads active last night and net
gains were saved for a number of them. Bears had
commenced to cover before the appearance of the
bank statement and their buying became rather
more urgent after the statement, owing to the un
expectedly small loss in cash. The general convic
tion that the return was untrustworthy as an Index
of the real condition of the banks helped to the
final yielding of prices. The outgo to the sub
treasury alone, which Is a matter of record, has
amounted to nearly $7,000,000 since the last return,
whereas the statement indicates only $2,675,400 al
together. That there has been a wholesale contrac
tion of loans all week hag been palpable in the
stock market and that actual new loans by the few
banks holding the surplus reserve can have offset
the contraction so far as to bring the latter down
to $C95.500 was skeptically regarded by the specula
tive public Under the belief that the vagaries of
the average system of computation clouded the re
cults In the statement, the market closed with
pressure to sell In full force again.
The week has been given over to liquidation In
the stock market and prices are lower throughout
the list. The belief In difficulties ahead in the
money market was the motive of the selling and
additional considerations emphasized the weakness
In the Industrial list, so that losses In that depart
ment ranged up to 10 and 15 points In some cases.
In the railroads, most of the losses range from a
fraction to 4. It Is probable that the money strin
gency and loan contraction were the primary causes
of weakness in the industrials, as in the railroads,
but several Incidents helped to make a poor market
for them and the farced liquidation brought some
violent declines. Monday's supreme court decision
against the Iron pipe combination In the so-called
Addison case was given cumulative effect by the
references In the president's message to the malign
effects of some of the industrial combinations in
forming practical monopolies of production and In
advancing prices. Friends of the different Industrial
stocks have been diligent In urging that the prac
tices decided to be illegal In tho Iron pipe combi
nation are not practiced by their combination, and
that they have not arbitrarily advanced prices. But
their efforts have not availed In the face of the
conviction that the coming presidential campaign
will bring clamor against the vast Industrial combi
nations which have become operative In many lines.
The president's reference to the prospective recom
mendations of the industrial commission which Is
Investigating this subject brought home to the spec
ulative mind that some concrete measure of restric
tion and regulation might be forthcoming from this
source. Stages In the gas war in New York city,
the sugar war and formulated rumors of new and
powerful competition In the tobacco trade have
served to demonstrate the vulnerability of the
"trusts" to encroachments on their fields by reason
of unwieldy capitalization and dividend obligations.
The admitted overcapitalization of many of the
newer Industrials begets a spirit of distrust. The
fact that the activity in the Iron and steel trade
has received a check for the first time since the
"boom" was reflected In the Etocks of Iron and steel
companies. For all these reasons lenders of money
have chosen loans to call first which had any of the
Industrials among the collateral with which they
were secured. Those who controlled the limited
supply of loanable funds showed equal discrimina
tion against industrial stocks In making new loans.
The supply of money in New York has suffered from
a renewal of the Interior demand, especially from
the South, where cotton Is still coming forward.
The subtreasury operations have made heavy In
roads upon the cash resources of the banks and the
relief by government bond redemptions has been
gradually running down until on Thursday It ceased
altogether. Bids for government bonds In the open
market are at a higher figure than the government
offers and the government project for refunding the
national debt prompts the owners of government
bonds to hold them with the existing surplus over
the legal reserves shown by the clearing house banks
Is partly Illusory, as fully halt the members of the
association were down to the legal limit last week.
Even those who hold the surplus are anxious to
have a little more room to turn around as the New
Year's period approaches. Provision must be made
for the largest interest and dividend disbursements
on record. The course of the foreign money mar
kets disclose an apprehensive frame of mind, the
most important incident of tho week being the ad
vance In the official discount rate of the Bank of
Trance from 3 to 3H per cent, to the highest rate in
thirteen sears. The drastic contraction both of
loans and of note Issues by the French Institution
Indicates preparations for some kind of crisis and a
determination to contest the Bank of England's ef
forts to attract funds to that center. The London
money market has shown signs of case and has been
able to repay large sums to the Bank of England.
But the bank, not content with the recuperation
from the source, has been selling government secur
ities, or. as It is termed, borrowing from the mar
ket. This Is a measure designed to keep up the
private money rate so that It will be responsive to
the bank and may be preliminary to a further ad
lance In the latter. The London money market Is
feeling not only tho cutting off of the usual supply
of gold from the Transvaal mines, but the needs of
the unprecedented activity in trade this country Is
doing. War expenses change South Africa to a
dtaln on the money market from being the principal
source of supply. The severity of the London need
for money over the end of the year yet remains to
bo developed but until It Is appeased any relaxation
In the New York money rate would certainly lead to
prompt withdrawals of gold to lend In London.
Speculators have therefore abandoned hopes of easier
money for the present and have sold stocks.
The bond market has moved In sympathy with
stocks and a smaller volume of dealings and over a
narrow range of prices. United States new 4s old
4s and ts advanced and the 3s H In the bid price.

THE GOVERNMENT OF KANSAS.
Working- In Harmony In the Inspec
tion of Southern Cattle.
Chairman M. C. Campbell, of the Kansas live
stock sanitary board, was In the city yesterday and
made the following statement of the reported con
flict between his department and the government In
inspection of Southern cattle:
"I note In the morning editions of the Kansas
City papers a special from CofTeyvllle, Kas., stating
that there is a clash between the live stock sanitary
board of Kansas and the government department In
regard to Inspection, and that government inspectors
permit cattle coming from points south of quaran
tine line to points north of same to proceed with
out further restrictions, except those Imposed at
points of destination. That la a very fair state
ment of the case.
"The points of destination for these cattle are
points in Kansas and the Kansas City stock yards.
as all the railroads bringing cattle Into the Kansas
City stock yards unload upon the Kansas side. This,
of course, makes the Kansas City stock yards a
point in Kansas and subject to its rules and regu
lations. For points beyond the state of Kansas the
Kansas board exacts no restrictions. The govern
ment officers Issue permits carrying them to these
points, subject only to any restriction that may be
Imposed by the states at destination points.
"The Kansas board is not interfering in sny way
with Interstate commerce: It simply requires all
cattle which originate south of quarantine line for
points In Kansas and the native division of the
Kansas City stock yards to comply with Its regula
tions. "The government department is In full sympathy
and co-operation with Kansas In this matter.
"The Kansas board Is not attempting to stop
these cattle because they do not pay fees, but be
cause they refuse to allow Kansas Inspectors to ex
amine them and Issue health permits where they
are entitled to the same.
"The fees are necessary to maintain the system
because the state of Kansas has made no appropria
tion by which the system can be maintained other
wise. "Even though the cattle are billed to the Kansas
City stock yards of Missouri it does not en
title them to pass the Kansas inspectors for the
reason above given, and for the further fact that
Missouri has passed the same regulations by an or
der Issued yesterday, and which was in effect even
prior to that, making all of the Kansas Inspectors
Inspectors for Missouri, and the Kansas board has
made the Missouri Inspectors Inspectors for Kansas,
maintaining a Joint arrangement in this matter.
"The Kansas board intends to prosecute all vio
lations of Its rules and regulations and the sooner
the railroads and shippers realize this the better it
will be for all concerned.
"No. thero Is no clash between the government
inspectors and those of Kansas. Each has Us duties
to perform, which do not conflict with the other
In any way,"
