The bear party was better defined and
more aggressive in yesterday’s New York
stock market than it has been for several
weeks and got the ascendant for a time
over the large bull contingent. The desire
of some of the very heavy operators in the
bull party to realise profits was itself a
source of weakness. But the bears made
most capital out of the yellow fever in Mis
sissippi. The stocks of roads which trav
erse the region immediately infected, nota
bly Louisville & Nashville, w>ere most
keenly affected. Louisville & Nashville de
clined at one time 2 points below’ Satur
day’s close, and other Southern roads were
more or less affected, the whole market
going off in sympathy and with the weight
of heavy realizing, sales. These incidents
somewhat interfered w ith the plan of opera
tions of the bulls, which was not essentially
different from that pursued each day last
week. The stock selected for putting up in
order to sustain the rest of the market
was Northern Pacific. This stock has not
shared in the recent improvement in prices,
owing to the poor showing of earnings
made in the weekly and monthly reports
of the company, but the apparent weak
ness in earning power of the company was
disregarded yesterday and the price of the
preferred stock was raised by manipula
tion four points, and that of the common
stock about two points. The day’s trading
last week was preceded each day by cir
culation in the street of a “tip” as to which
stock was to be pushed up during the day.
This policy wa3 pursued also yesterday,
with the effect of stimulating speculation
In {he stock named and aiding the bulls’
plan. They were also assisted by a livelier
speculative interest on the part of Lon
don than has been manifested since the
present rise in prices. Prices were higher
in London before the opening in New York,
and buying for London account was quite a
prominent factor during the day. London
bought about 40.000 shares. The orders
which had accumulated in commission
house offices over the double holiday were
also effective at the opening in helping to
rush up prices. The heavy sales to realize,
however, and the yellow fever sentiment
soon put a stop to the upward movement
and the market was depressed for most of
the rest of the dav below Saturday s close,
the decline from the opening high point ex
ceeding a point in many prominent shares.
'The buying in Northern Pacific, New York
Central. Cleveland. Cincinnati, Chicago &
St Louis and the grangers, especially
Burlington, brought the market back to
above Saturday’s level of prices, stocks
which reamined below being exceptional.
Sugar moved in an erratic manner all day
over a range of 2*4 points.. show ing
strength for the most part. The preferred
stock rose 2%. The industrial stocks gen
erally were somew'hat neglected. Stocks
which show’ sharp losses are the coalers
iexcept Reading). Flint & Pere Marquette,

St Louis seconds preferred, Mobile At
Ohio. St. Joe & Grand Island seconds

Trade Active and Collection* Easier,
with Price* Firm.
A visit tc the markets shows that a very active
trade is in progress in several lines and that with
most merchants the volume of trade is steadily
improving and in every line firm prices Is the
leading feature. A number of merchants were in
and bought good bills and mail orders were satis
factory. I'rices in nearly all lines are not only
firm, but hive a strong tendency to further ad
vance. It is noticeable that dry goods, leather,
hides, hardware and iron are in strong position,
as are staple groceries. While no sharp advances
ha' e been made, for liirec months b tek there
bas been consideitible improvement. On Commis

The Potato Crop a Failure,
The following is the weekly bulletin is
sued by the Indiana Crop Bureau:
“Dry weather continued, except that
light and heavy local rains fell in some lo
calities of the central and northern por
tions on the first days of the week. Warm
weather prevailed during the days, but the
nights were cool. Rain now; would not help
corn; it is maturing fast, and some is be
yond danger from trost; some fields in the
southern and central portions have been
cut and put in shock; because of the con
tinued dry weather, late planted corn will
not yield so well. In most fields potatoes
are a failure. Buckwheat is doing well.
Tomatoes are ripening slowly, and are less
in quantity than usual. Cabbages were
much injured by worms in the southern
and central portions, but they promise well
ir, the northern portion. The sweet potato
crop will be short, but beans promise a
good crop. It is too dry for turnips, and
they do not come up well. Early-sown rye
is coming up. Grapes are ripening, and
seme are rotting badly. A heavy crop of
millet hay has been secured. Clover hull
ing continues, and the yield of seed is good
in quantity and quality. Pasturage is dry
ing up. and, in some localities, stock has
to be fed, and stock water is getting scarce.
Plowing for wheat progresses only slowly;
the ground is too dry and hard. Wheat
seeding has begun, but, in general, farm
ers are waiting for rain; much wheat will
be sown this year. Live stock, in general,
is healthy and in good condition, except in
localities of the southern portion, where
stock is not in so good a condition as sev
eral weeks ago; many hogs died of cholera
in Posey and Bartholomew counties."

Heavy Export Business and Higher

visions Some Weaker.
CHICAGO, Sept. 7.—Wheat is getting close
to the dollar mark again. December closed
to-day at 9ti 4 4c, an advance of 2VzC since
Saturday. Strong cables and a heavy ex
port business started the market strong
and kept it in that condition. Corn scored
lc advance, notwithstanding enormous re
ceipts and denials of damage reports. Oats
shared in the prosperity to the extent of %c
advance. Provisions were affected some
what by the yellow-fever scare, but at the
close showed only a 10c decline in pork and
2 4 /5c in ribs, while lard advanced sc.
The Liverpool wheat market had advanced
before the trading commenced here the
equivalent of 4%c per bushel over the price
it closed at on Saturday last, 2c of that rise
having occurred yesterday. Paris was also
quoted 3c per bushel higher since Saturday.
In sympathy with the strength abroad, an
advance-of about 2c inaugurated the day's
business here, December starting at from
95 4 2C to 95%c, compared with Saturday’s
closing price of 93%e. But local speculators
who held long wheat over from the end of
the week before seized the opportunity of
reaping so material a profit and their offer
ings cau.#d the market to show a sagging
tendency most of the forenoon, December
declining to before any material rally
occurred. The trade statistics of last week s
movement of wheat in the direction of con
suming countries were somew’hat of a drag
to the market. The week's shipments of
wheat and Hour from all sources to the im
porting countries of Europe were 9,812,000
bushels, against 7,454,000 bushels the week
before and 7,513,000 bushels the correspond
ing week of 1596. The quantity on ocean
passage was thereby increased 2,0.0,000 bush
els. Receipts of wheat at Chicago since
Saturday morning were 1,088 cars, but of
that number thirty-five only came up to
the contract standard. The quantity shipped
from here since Saturday morning was dis
proportionately small compared to receipts,
145,000 bushels comprising the total. Minne
apolis and Duluth reported 1,830 carloads re
ceived, compared with 2,512 for the three
corresponding days of the previous year.
Atlantic port clearances of wheat and flour
since Saturday w’ere equal to 1,155,000 bush
els. The visible supply decreased 656,000
bushels and the total is now’ down to 14,817,-
OGO bushels. A year ago (he corresponding
week showed 921,000 bushels increase and
the total was 47,416,000 bushels. Closing ca
bles did not vary much from those reporting
the opening quotations. It was difficult to
get information regarding the precise num
ber of boatloads sold for export at New
York and elsewhere, but it was very evi
dent from what could be learned that 1,000,-
000 bushels or more had been disposed of.
That was the reason why the market, after
its reactionary disposition in the forenoon,
became once more very strong and was
bringing 9614 c for December about fifteen
minutes from the close. The final trading
price was 9614 c.
Trade in corn was active and much more
general than in w’heat. Strong cables anaj
very general damage reports from drought
started the market very firm, but the enor
mous receipts and visible increase, coupled
with some emphatic denials of any material
damage to the crop, caused an easier feel
ing to prevail for some time. The bullisn
ness of wheat in the last hour, however,
started renew’ed buying and closing prices
were about the highest of the day. Receipts
since Saturday were 3.737 ears. The visible
increased 3.347,000. Charters w’ere for 375,000
bushels. The shipping demand was slow.
December opened at from 33c to 33%e,
against Saturday's close of 32!£®32%c. It
ranged between 33%c and 32%c, closing at
33% c.
More interest was show’n in oats. There
was considerable influential buying and the
market ruled firm from the start. The
strength of corn was apparently the princi
pal factor. The visible supply increased
293/00 bushels. Receipts for three days w’ere
posted at 949 cars. December ranged be
tween 20%c and 20%c, closing at the top
figure, an advance of %c for the day.
A yellow-fever scare on a mild scale
struck the provision market at the opening,
provisions suffering especially. Packers,
however, gave the market vigorous support,
and before the close the market had stea
died, lard even showing an advance. Hogs
were weak and low’er. December closed 10c
low’er at $8.52%<@8.84; December iard, 2%i35c
higher, at $4.8504.87%, and December ribs
unchanged at $5.05.

Too Dry and Hot for Corn.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 7.—The Weather Bureau
in its report of crop conditions for the week ended
at 8 a. m. Sept. 6, says: “Corn has been very
unfavorably affected by the weather conditions of
the past week in the principal com producing
States. High temperature and absence of much
needed rain have checked growth of the late crop
ar.d caused premature ripening, while the x>reva
lence of hot winds have caused injury particular
ly in the States of the lower Missouri valley. In
lowa and Missouri much corn is past help and
w ill be cut for fodder. The f conditions, however,
have been more favorable to com in the lake
region, upper Ohio valley and New’ England, and
in tlie Middle Atlantic States the crop is generally
doing well."

NEW YORK, Sept. 7.—AVheat had a rise of
2V®2‘4c to-day consequent on excellent foreign
buying of futures and spot wheat, the latter foot
ing up a million bushels at New York and out
ports. The market had a midday reaction of a
cent a bushel, but aside from this exhibited a
strong undertone all day. December opened at a
dollar end near the close sold up to $1.00% or
just 4c under the best point of the year. Final
prices were near the top l’or the session. There
was no excitement at any time, trade being en
tirely local excent for the early foreign orders.
Total sales were 4,465,000 bushels. Cables were all
higher and lent color to the big export demand.
