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.

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
The local grain market Is active. The Board
of Trade inspections range from 60 to 110 cars a
day. Track bids yesterday, as reported by the

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.

Object of the Meeting; of the House
Ways and Means Committee.
WINONA, Minn., Now 13. Congressman
J. A. 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."
