In the Wheat, rnrn mi ! nlt until

sibility of something turning up, however.
iiinv may piace new lire in tho various

the present time there Is nothing visible

average speculator. The outside trade la
almost nothing, and thero will be no Im
provement in this crop until there Is a
complote change In tho conditions uud cir
c"m,rVulCP surrounding tho various com-
iiiuuiutw neaii in on tho Chicago uoaru oi
rrade. The outsider has been forced to
JP'e money on wheat and has made but
little money in either corn or oats. Under
these conditions at this season of the
year those with a speculative turn of
mind are giving their attention to sonie
tning else besides endeavoring to scalp a
Profit out of grain or provisions.
The average bull In wheat, the man
who has Invested his money on the long
as well as the wrong side of the market,
points .to tho fact that accumulation of
grain In the various positions amounts to
abnormally small totals. The wheat ha
been token by people who behoved In
it and nearly ever miller In the country
is now carrying large quantities of this
grain and thoso who have ground It Into
flour and have part of it sold are the
ones that may be called good managers.
There Is still considerable wheat held by
millers and they are carrying a great
deal of flour that Is unsold. .The move
ment of corn .and tho prlco will depend
for a time .-n. lenst upon tho weather.

CHICAGO, Doc. 9. Wheat sold today
at the lowest price this season. A huge
Increase in the United States visible mip
plv total had much to do with weak
ening the market. The close was heavy
at a net decline of 5i'ic to IUQIThc
Corn finished ?ac to 10Ui c down, oata
off ',wc to Uffftio and provisions with a
loss f 5e to 2f cents
Government figures on the wheat crop
Proved higher than the crowd expected
both as' to condition nnd acieago but
came too late to affect the market. Pri
vate estimates current during the ses
sion, although against the IiiiIIh were
much less so than the official report.
Argentine crop reports of a flattering
character gave the wheat market n down
ward Impulse from the start.
Largo receipts tended further to dls
courago holders, the movement continu
ing groatlv in excess of last year's weak
ness In tho stock market acted also as
n depressing Influence.
Leading houses supported wheat at 90
cents and later at SflH cents for May,
buying moro than 1.000,000 Vushels. It
was. however, not until the price touched
89 cents, which had started at 90" , cents
that the decline could be checked, Vs
under any previous record for the pres
ent crop. Latest sales at S-lWie
showed a net loss of lU5'llc.
Enlarged offerings from Iowa and Il
linois weighed corn down, especially 'he
December option. Colder weather fu
vored marketing. May ranged between
4S and 4M4c. closing wcik. i ofr at

Provisions dropped notwithstanding that
hog receipts were less than expected.
The larger packers were Helling, nnd
there were reports of lessened shipping
trade. January pork, which led the de

NEW YORK. Dee 9 lowest prices
of stock In all classes for several
months were recorded todav. Tho selling
movement, which was checked tempo
rarily lalo last week, was resumed to
day with Increased vigor and some of
the severest looses of the present de
cline wero Inflicted Union Pacific sold
down 5 points to 162i. Reading IV to
IftiW. fteel. iU to 05i. Amalgnmnted 3si
to ViK and American Smelting 3st tu
tl)l. Mimes of 2 to 3 points were re
corded through n long list of other
stock from alt ouarterK nf thn mar
ket. At tho close when quotations wore
nt the lowest, tho average price for
two,nty-flvp leading Issues, Including fif
teen roilrouOM anil ten Induatrlafci, had
fallen to within 3 polntii of the low
nvernge of tho year, which was readied
During tho morning tho market wan
quiet, with few Important changes.
Traders did not cam to take a decided
position because of, tho chance of a de
cision today by tho United State su
premo court In ono of tho Important
caBei pending. Aj soon a word wus
received from AVnhlngton that none of
these decisions would be rendered toilio"
heavy selling began. Tho low priced
specialties whlrh figured In last week's
break wero first attacked and save way
I easily. The movement spread not only
to tho leading speculative Issues but to
high priced Investment stocks. Such a
large dawi of these Issues were In
cluded In tho break that It was appar
ent extensive liquidation w In prog
ress Brokers said liquidation was
chiefly on tho part of ol of town hokl
crs of Becurlues, while local traders
were chiefly resiMiislhle for tho hcaT
short selling. No concerted effort was
made to support the list tvnd tho so
ciilleil "big Interests." apparently were
not averse to a further drop.
There wos sonio further scaling of
loans by financial Institutions which
may havo been a factor in tho day's
operations. Although last weok's bank
statement ehownd that the dflolt had
been eliminated. th margin of surplus
reserve, is narrow enough to explain
somo of tho other reductions In tho loan
Tho copper producers' monthly state
ment showed the expected Inereaao in
stocks on hand, a gain In exports hav
ing been morn than offset by tho shrink
age In domestic consumption.
Thn bond market was very weak, with
declines in somo nctlve Issues running
from 1 to 1 point. .Total sales par
vnluo. $1,970.00). United States bonds un
changed on call.

HOflH necrlpts of hogs dmppod a
tie thlM morning In comparison with last
Monday and two weeks ago, hut were a
little larger than on tho corresponding
days a year ugo. With only a modorato
supply of hogs In sight nnd till buyers
having god demands trado started off
esrlv with an advance of Mflue. Quite a
few' offurlngs were disposed of In that
wav to tho speculators. For a short time
there appeared to on some iiin rnanuy
as to what the packing Interests wore
going to do. However, sellers were up-
HinUitc and expected the packer buyeis
to take up the trade, nt least on tho
same basis as opening prices. To make
a miio thing of it the solium held fast
and In tho end got prices for thn rest of
the offorlngs fully aa good and In most
oases better than during the earlier
trade The packing drovo wero put up
largely around 17.C0 or possibly a shade
helter.ithus making tho snles to the pack
ers generally a dlmo higher than the
general market at the closo of lust week.
Taking all tho sales Into consideration the
bulk moved at a range of Jl.fiW.W, as
against $7.!?7.) on Saturday. Two loada
sold up to 17.76, top for tho day and a
dime above tho highest prlco op Satur
day. The weakest point of the day ww
at or near the close, values showing
good part of the early advance lost. A
generally active movement was a feature
of the market and mostly everything
was dared In good eeaeon.

HUEF.P-Tho receipts of sheep and
lambs this morning were pretty much
but were considerable shor.t of two weeks
ago A fairly largo percentage of range
stuff showed up; In fact, the supply of
that kind of sheep and lambs was almost
equal to hnlf of thn total rocelpts. As
usual at this time nf the year the bulk of
tho range offerings wan' mostly on the
feeder order, though several loads of very
good klllnrs, nrrUeil on today's market.
Mostly all the buyers seemed to have
good orders and although no Improvement
In tho general trade was Indicated by the
early reports from outsldo points the local
trade begiui In vary good season and was
pilte active. Prices on good handy
weight lambs might bo icgarded as ajiy
whete from strong to a. dime higher and
biliiba Inclined to be 11 little too heavy to
Please the packer buyers scorned to sell
fairly well and If there was any change
in allies It whs for tho better One load
of Ted western iambs reached $7.70 as
compared with $7.00 on Friday.
There WJIS alsll U,t u.HV Ira.'l. 1nM In
.. ,fat sheep and prices seem to show Just
uiuuii improvement ns on lambs and
possibly a uttio more. Killing sheon sold
anywhere from strong to 10iitl&o higher
iimn win cioso or last week. A bunch or
frit ewes sold 11a I1I0I1 11 in i.nin.i
HA nt the end of last week. Horn
range wethers brought 14.8C nnd a bunci
of fed yearlings sold up to $S.1B. Almost
everything In the sheep division changed
hands readily nnd practically all the
orrerlngs were disposed of comparatively
early in the forenoon.
While thn demanrl for Oertera en.t
to bo very limited during the closing
days of lost week, there wsa a fair In
quiry ror usrriil rccder offerings this
morning. Tho feeder supply wan onlj
ralr, there being, however. Just about
enough feeders on sain to satisfy the de
mand. Trade was fairly active whlli
prices showed no material change from
hist week. Uulk of tho offerings wrus
cleared In fair season.
