There was a slight accumulation of or
ders over the holiday, which were exe
cuted In the New York stock market -at the
opening yesterday morning for outside ac
count. Arbitrage brokers bought stocks on
a small scale for foreign account to cover
sales made in London at the higher level.
Induced by the rumor -which found cre
dence on the other dde of the surrender of
the Boer General Cronje. There was con
tinued absorption on a limited scale of the
stocks for some of the railroad companies
which have shown extraordinary increases
In earnings during the week, and to which
wa3 added yesterday Northern Pacific,
with an increase for the second week In
February of J1S3.J0S, or 41 per cent. West
ern New York & Pennsylvania, of the bi
tuminous coal group, showed an Increase of
38 per cent.- But even at the opening pres
sure was manifest against individual stocks
amongst the specialties, which served to
unsettle the market. and eventually turn
the tide in favor of the reactionists. Con
tinued depression wa3 manifest at the
opening in Third-avenue, People's Gas,
Leather and Sugar. As the day progressed
other stocks came under pressure, and the
grnup above named showed some recovery.
The iron and steel group were the first af
fected by the spread of weakness, Tennes
see Coal dropping an extreme 5 points and
American Hoop, National Steel, Tin Plate,
Federal Steel. Wire and Steel, Colorado
Fuel and Republic Steel from 1 to 3 points.
Later the announcement of the dividend on
Consolidated Gas at the reduced rate es
tablished since the local gas war was in
effect led to a raid on that specialty, with
a resulting loss of 4. Rubber preferred
lost nearly 4 points, Metropolitan 4. Glu
cose 3 and Brooklyn Union Gas 2. Third
avenue fell in the final dealings to the low
est of the day. showing a decline of 7
points net. These violent declines had a'
sympathetic effect on the general list, es
pecially on the granger and trunk lines,
and declines in the railroads were extended
to a point or over In may cases. Fears that
the cutting of rates on grain would ftad to
demoralization of freight rates had Tin in
fluence. Apprehensions of higher money
also had to do with the decline. There was
a slight rally on covering by shorts by the
bears and in sympathy with a rise in Read
ing first preferred to K. This made the
closing firm, but at net losses in practically
all cases. Preliminary estimates of the
movement of currency by express to and
from the interior indicate an increase in
the shipments by the banks, but a still
greater increase in their receipts, so that
the los3 on the interior movement is be
lieved to be less than half a million dollars.
Receipts of money by registered mail are
raid by banking authorities to be sufficient
to more -than offset this. Losses by the
tanks on subtreasury operations for the
week foot up $3,084.000. It is believed that
the loan expansion will show a consider
able falling off from the recent rate of in
crease. More or less mystery still attaches
to the phenomenal increases in loans of
last week and the week before, and the
disposition grows to attribute them to some
special operations. But a further decline
in surplus reserves of several million dol
lars will inevitably be shown by to-day's
The bond market showed decreased ac
tivity and prices declined. Total sales at

WHEAT IX CHICAGO PIT.
Mny Down a Cent and a Half Corn
and Onts Closed Lower and Pro
vision on u. Decline.
CHICAGO. Feb. 23. The enormous ex
port business done by Argentina last week
was the dominant factor In wheat to-day.
May closing lU'Sl'&c under Wednesday.
The other markets were depressed by the
wheat weakness. May corn closed UtlsC,
and May oats a shade lower. Provisions
at the close were 2f?12Vlc down.
The news from Argentina held the cen
ter of the bulletin board on the Board of
Trade to-day. Other bearish news was
merely subsidiary to it. The shipments
from Argentina, 2,3:0,000 bu, were exceeded
only twice last year, and have not been ex
ceeded often in the' history of the com
merce of that country. In consequence.
May wheat opened c under Wednesday
at 67!s5j67Uc. The price touched 67567180.
and later CTUc between which quotations
It fluctuated for two hours. Then the de
scent began. Under pressure of foreign
selling and bull liquidation, vith scarcely
any outside demand, the price of M?.y was
forced steadily down to 66Uc, at which the
market for that option closed, lamentably
weak and lfnc, under Wednesday. New
York reported twelve loads taken for ex
port. Atlantic port . clearances. In wheat
and flour, were equal to ICO.000 bu. Pri
mary receipts for two days were 1,074,000
bu, against C32.000 bu last year. Minne
apolis and Duluth reported 970 cars, com
pared with 5S1 last week and C98 a year ago.
Receipts here were 112 cars, none of con
Corn was Inclined towards firmness, but
finally sucumbed to the wheat weakness.
Trade generally was quiet. . Country of
ferings were fair, but the shipping demand
was poor. The crowd was ready to buy
with the least encouragement, and did
hoist May up a bit while wheat was mak
ing its early struggle against further
losses. The report that there were 342,000
more corn-eating cattle in the country
now than a year ago caused some heavy
buying from the provision pit, which was
Influential in the bulge. Much of this was
let out again later in sympathy with
wheat. Receipts here were 592 cars. May
ranged from 35c to 345344c, and closed
Mfi?fcc down at ZifaZic.
The trade in oats was small, and Influ
enced most of the time by corn. In view
of the weakness about it the market was
remarkable steady. Receipts here were
3o6 cars. May ranged from 23341I23c to
2iic, and closed a shade depressed at 23lic.
Provisions were dull. The market early
was easy with wheat, later firm with the
corn bulge but again weak with wheat.
A firm hog market had a steadying effect.
May pork ranged from $10.83110.87 to
$10.72H. and closed 10$12y.c under Wednes
day at $10.72U 10.73; May lard from $5.95
5.94 to $o.i0, closing: 2e down at $5.90. and
May ribs from $5.95 to $5.S5ti5.S7, with the
ciose ty2c lower at $5.8505.874.
Estimated receipts to-morrow: Wheat,
53 cars; corn, 1,060 cars; oats, 315 cars;
hogs, 23.000 head.

for ages, but they didn't have Rev. Mr.
Sandford's methods. He Just sits still and
people bring things to him. He attributes
all of his success to his happy thought
of founding the "Holy Ghost and Us So
ciety," of which he is . the head and the
chief interpreter. He says the Holy Ghost
is a man. only much stronger than ordin
ary men, and that He will supply any
body who joins the society with all the
comforts of life. Not a tap of work Is
needed. If people will only quit working
and Join the society all economic questions
will be solved instanter.
Mr. Sandford used to be a Baptist
preacher, but seven years ago, he says,
he left the church and went into partner
ship with the Holy Gho3t. Since that
time his life (and that of his followers)
has been spent on "Easy avenue." All
the ministers of all the great religious
denominations, are, according to Mr. Sand
ford, humbugs, frauds and deceiver?
men, whose s.ole purpose in life is to get
money and hold the population in super
stitious awe. The Holy Spirit repudiates
them. Besides that, these ministers work,
and in working they flagrantly violate the
injunction in Matthew, "Take no thought,
saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall
we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be
clothed? But seek ye first the kingdom
of God and Ills righteousness, and all
these things shall be added unto you."
Fashionable Boston Is taking the new
culture with all its Bostonian avidity.
Many rich young women have given up
all their possessions and joined the society,
certain that they will get everything need
ed by "wedding themselves to the Holy
Ghost," as Mr. Sandford puts it. Among
these are Miss Guptil and Miss Mary Gup
til, both of whora are exceedingly pretty
young girls, whose faith in Mr. Sandford
knows no bounds. They claim they have
seen several miraculous deliveries of food
and clothing since they entered the fold,
and they have no fear whatever that the
Holy Ghost will fail them in the future.
Rev. Mr. Sandford started his society at
Shlloh, Me., whither he was told to go by
the Holy Spirit. He built a church there
without money, and people outside the fold
paid for it. He says there Is no danger
that everybody will quit work, and so long
as people are stubborn enough to keep on
working he will have plenty without labor.
Among other pleasant traits of Mr. Sand
ford's character is his perfect willingness
to cast out devils. He will cast out devils
for a reasonable monetary consideration,
but this Is not work for him. It Is too easy
to be called work. Although he is doing
pretty well In Boston he will soon leave
for Jerusalem because God has told him to
go. lie doesn't yet know what he Is go
ing to do there. On that point the Holy
Ghost hasn't Informed him. But he will
go to Zion and wait for further orders.
The two Misses Guptil will accompany
This new apostle of no work is a rather
good-looking man, with clear, magnetic
gray eyes and a very enthusiastic manner.
He has a tremendous Influence over and
fascination for women, especially the
young and pretty ones. He is not very
strong with the men, however, but he
seems to persuade rich men to give him
Supplies, especially wholesale merchants,
many, of whom have contributed groceries,
carpets, shoes and clothing for the "work."

est In a month and the quality generally
was the best for several days, but there
were no fancy export cattle represented.
A few outside orders had the effect of
strengthening competition in the steer mar
ket and all the better grades were trans
ferred promptly at an advance of at least
10c. The middle class of steers were not
quotably higher and the market for female
butcher cattle was rather sluggish at about
10c lower prices. Quotations:

The hog market opened with salesmen
asking steady to strong prices, but buyers
were bidding lower, and it was soon evident
that concessions would have to be made.
Finally, with a very fair inquiry from order
buyers and better competition than yester
day from local packers, the offerings were
changing hands readily enough at a de
cline of 2(S5c in prices. Toward the close
there was a steadier feeling, and the last
