Strength was removed In the New York stock market yesterday, but there was nothing like resumption of the speculative enthusiasm of last week. There were more stocks that moved; strongly upward than Wednesday, and there were fewer that closc4 the Cay lower than thej left oK Wednesday nljht. but there was never theless a continuances of the irregular tendency In the market. The joints of strength, though more numerous, were still somewhat Isolated. anI the market did not at anjr time show perme ating and vigorous strength. The gains- seemed to b due either to the Operation of speculath' pools working for an advance In special stocks, or to causes affecting the Individual stocks. General Electric duplicated Its gain cf Wednes day with another six-point rise, carrying it to HO1 oa the larse earnings reported. We-3ue das strength In the - coalers became largely localized in New Jersey Centra!, which was up at one time 4H points on reports of a coming Increase in dividends. The movement of broad est scope for the di was In the winter wheat grangers, which advanced between one and two points all around on the good weather for the crop In that territory. The movement n Great Northern preferred and In Union Pacific was at tributed to the reports of a working agreement, looking to extension of tra-nc Into each other's territory. Northern raclfic, after a rather slight advance, fell back to about Wednesday night's level. Consolidated Gas. Continental To bacco. People's Gas. Tennessee Coal, Brooklyn Transit and some other rcialties were strong lt the same wy. London bought a small num ber of stocks on balance. The .professional pres sure against the market was relaxed, and there were no fjrther signs of urgent üqulJation, al though profit-taking was in evidence at some points all day. Money was appreciably easier, and a favorable bank statement on Saturday is beginning to te discounted. The subtreasury op erations have contributed about $2.500.000 to the market by reason of the falling off in internal revenue collections and l.irse disbursements fcr Tensions. There have been light currency thip mcnts to New Orleans, but Chicago exchange rose to par. Reports from Interior money mar kets are cf easy conditions, due t& a process f tmlooeeclng after tho election similar to those which occurred in the New York market. Ar rivals of over J3.C0O.C0O In Australian gold are expected In San Francisco in a few day, which can be made available by telegraphic transfer through the subtree suries to the each reserves of New York banks. There is a feclinj that the large war loans Impending In England and Ger many probably will net b offered urtil early next year. The statement of the foreign trade for October gives Increased confidence In the country's financial resources. v The total ex torts, as well as th excess of exports over Im ports, are far greater than these for any previous month in the country's history, the excess of xports showing the astoundln; total of i$2,472. t'JS.

Trade luiprovlns; Under FavoraMe Weather nnil Financial Conditions. Not In many years b-s there been a time when merchants of all classes wero more on .the alert for business than at present, and seldom are their efforts crowned with more success. The dry goods houses, th drugzists. the leather dealers, the hardware and Iron merchants, the tvholeeale confectioners, all report trade as ex cellent. The wholesale grocers, who thought that their business for months past was good, are surprised' at the Increase the last few days, and the eagerness of retail merchants to stock up to advantage and their promptness. la meet ing bills, many discounting them in advance. In fact, conditions could hardly be more heali.hr and satisfactory. The produce markets are very active, poultry, butter and ejgs being very firm at prices quoted. The demand for poultry is increasing dally, and prices have a hardenlns tendency, especially on turkeys. Tropical fruits are la better demand. Bananas are scarce and firmer. But few Florida oranges are yet on the market. An early advance In the price of flour need not bo a surprise. Provisions are moving freely, with prices tdeady at the revision of Monday. The seed market Is quiet. The coal market Is active and prices firm, as revised on Thursday. The local grain market Is active. The Board of Trade inspections range from 60 to 110 cars a day.

Corn Stands Alone and Helps Itself PpOat Firm and Unchanged Good Gains in Provisions. CRfi'AGO, Nov. 13. Wheat, having been soi l to a standstill, rallied to-day, chiefly on proQt taklng by shorts, although there was some news of a bullish hue. December closed Uc over yes terday. Corn closed a Bhade higher and oats un changed. Provisions advanced on light hog re ceipts, January pork closing 32Vic, January lard 15c and January ribs 20c higher. At the beginning of the session the talent beheld a paradox, the market steadying on bear ish news. Liverpool fully reflected the decline here yesterday, and shorts, taking advantage of the liquidation, which was renewed In a moder ate way on this fact, covered to insure profits. Thus, December, which had opened Ho lower at 724c to 72?c, rallied to 72c This trifling rally brought out more wheat, with the result that December dropped to 71ic low price for thi crop. Here the market gave evidence of having been sold to the last speculative bushel, and prices steadied with a jerk. The long wheat, which shorts had sold at the start, was less In evidence. An Argentine cable reported 40 per cent, damage to the crop of that country, and while this was denied by others biter. It had its effect among shorts. The opening of recently closed mill3 at Minneapolis also had its. effect, and December alvaneed to 72g72?ic, around which figures the market held steady the remain ing hoar of the session. The rapid accumulations of stocks and the prediction of a good Increase in the visible and in world's shipments militated against any radical action by bulls. The trade was largely local throughout and no heavy quan tities of wheat changed hands. As a result of the December covering the December-May dif ference narrowed to 31?34c. New York reported thirty loads taken for export. Seaboard clear ances. In wheat and flower, -wer equal to 378,000 bu. Primary receipts were 719,000 bu. compared with 837,000 bu last year. Minneapolis and Du luth reported 359 cars, against 426 last week and 7CC a year ago. Local receipts were U cars, 10 of contract grade, Corn was able to stand alone, and did so. helped by a good shipping demand and the stiff backed attitude maintained by a young operator credited with being In control of the market. Country offerings from Iowa, Indiana, Illinois and Ohio points were freer, but the estimate for to-morrow was not suggestive that thers was any rush among farmers to take advantage of the excellent weather for moving their holdings to market, despite the premium No. 2 corn If now commanding in Chicago for delivery this month. The market waa not active, and tho bulk of speculative trading was for the local account. Receipts were $44 cars, and this num ber being 24 cars in excess of the estimate, caused a shade easier prices at the opening. December sold between S5i36Hc, and closed a shade higher at 35Vtf36o. Oats were quiet and Arm, Receipts were only 106 cars, 34 cars under the estimate, and the estimate for to-morrow gave no indication of Improvement In that respect. The shipping de mand was restricted to prices at which business could not be done profitably. December sold be tween ZVa22c and 22422&c, and closed un changed at 22c. Strength and a fair amount of activity held sway In the provisions pit. Packers and com mission houses were liberal buyers, largely to cover shorts. The market was influenced by a run of hogs 7,000 under the estimate, and by a sharp advance in prices at the stockyards. Jan uary pork sold between $ 11.62'. i and $11.824, and closed 32Vc over yesterday at $11.824: January lard between $3.83 and $6.97H. closing 15c higher at $6.97. and January ribs between $6.20 and $0.35, with the close 20c up at $S.35. Estimated receipts to-morrow: Wheat, 123 cars; corn. 325 cars; oats, 105 cars; hogs, 27,000 bead. Leading futures ranged as follows: Articles. Open- Illfh- Low- Clos Wheat ing. est. eat. Ing.

Tawney, of the ways and means com mittee, shaking of the meeting Jn Wash ington Nov. 30, says: "The object is to consider the extent to which the war revenue taxes can be re moved and amendments to make the law more satisfactory in administration. Th problem as to what taxes fhall be re moved will be a perplexing one. I think, however, it is pafe'to say that the stamp tax upon instruments of eonveyanev, iiich as notes, deeds, mortgages, inheritances for charitable and benevolent purposes, will bo removed; possibly the taxes upon propri etary medicines and some others. It will be the desire of the members of the com mittee to remove just as many of tho stamp taxes as possible, but like the re moval of the stamp taxes under the civil war revenus act. this will probably have to be done gradually, to as to avoid sail ing too close to the danger of a deficit."
