8. — The bears . had another successful day in
wheat. Yesterday's decline was continued
oiid December sold down to 6534®65!45. That
all the long wheat was not thrown over yes
terday was evident from the free offerings
at the start All cuutldeu-e was lost and
holders made haste |to get out. One espe
cially weakening influence was the Liver
pool cable. While heretofore following re
luctantly on our advances, Liverpool showed
prompt response to our decline of yesterday,
and closed [email protected]\d lower.Chicago optued lower
on this foreign decline and on the increase
in northwestern receipts, Minneapolis and
Duluth receiving 707 cars, against 427 last
year. The government weekly report is fa
•vorable. The past week, It is said, waa all
that could be desired for the maturing and
cutting of the corn crop. Corn la now safe
from frost damage. There was some damage
to stacked grain by rains In South Dakotu
and Nebraska. Weather conditions this
morning are favorable for the movement.
St. Louis received 3.5.000 bu, against 53,000
last year, and Kansas City 44 cars, against
115 cars. Liverpool was %d off at first and
*id lower ou second cables, closing %©%d
lower. Paris came [email protected] centimes lower on
wheat, and on flour weak and 15520 centimes
lower. At the close Pails was off equal to
V' and Antwerp IVic. Liverpool cabled that
Kussla wiuj ottering wheat freely and there
were more liberal offerings of corn from the
Danube. Broomhall cabled that he is ad
vised that crop prospects in Australia are
satisfactory.
•Primary receipts were 1,311,000 bu, against
1,078,000 last year, aud shipments 848,000 bu,
against 697,000 bu. Clearances wheat aud
flour were 423,000 bu. Minneapolis received
667 cars and Duluth 240, againat 376 and 51
last year. '
The market recovered towards the end ami
liquidation appeared to have spent Itself.
December moved up, closing at OtiV: May
closed at ii9'4®69*»L': Chicago closed Decem
ber at 68744j69c. At the close It is though i
th» long wheat held before yesterday's break
has been about cleaned out, and there is little
pressure.
The cash market was active and steady on
all grades except No. 3 wheat, which showtf
v wider range and a generally weaker n>ue.
Ciiusiderablf of the No. 3 was very pooi.
which accounted fur the low range. No. I

New York, Oct. 2. —Opening quotations for
storks showed some good fractional gaii> •
and St. Paul advanced a point. United
States Steel shares, numbering 7.00U, sold
simultaneously at 44% to 44%, compared with
43% last night, and 2,000 shares of the pre
ferred were bought at an advance of ?»•
There was an active demand also for Atchi
son, which lifted It %. Sugar opened off
%, but immediately rallied to above last
night.
Trading became animated and broader with
professional operators buying heavily of the
western and Pucific stocks. Gains of from 1
to 1% were made by many important railroads
and specialties. Profit-taking occurred later,
but the market became very dull when prices
eased off.
The market was under steady pressure
throughout the second hour and earlier ad
vances in the railroads, tractions, Sugar
and Amalgamated were pretty generally wiped
out. Manhattan and Brooklyn Transit were
notably weak and sold [email protected]% respectively un
der yesterday's close.
Heavy liquidation in Brooklyn Transit,
which depressed it to 61% c, combined with
tiii.- postponement of the dividend action Id
Atehison common, through lack of a quorum
of the directors, induced the room traders
to put out short lines and prices of many
important stocks ruled under last night.
Sugar and Manhattan were sold freely, the
foiruer declining to 117. American Car and
GlKoae Sugar lost 23J3 while Consolidated
Gas lost 2Va- j
Buying by the shorts caused some large
fractional recoveries, but aa soon as this de
mand slackened the market ran off to lower
than before. Brooklyn Transit broke to 60%
and there was considerable pressure agalrst
iMlssouri Pacific, People's Gas, Manhattan and
Atchison. Pressed Steel Car preferred re
t.cte-1 3, the common 2V», and American Car
preferred 2%. Wisconsin Central preferred
fell 2. Evansville & Terre Haute improved 4%
but lost l\'-i immediately. .
lJrooklyu Transit, touched 59% c, the lowest
of the year, anl the decline was carried
further elsewhere, prices falling generally
below last night. International Pump, Inter
national Power preferred and lowa Central
prelerred fell from I to 2 points and Lacka
wanna 8%. The market steadied and recov
ered somewhat on covering by shorts. Amer
ican Sugar rallied 1% and Pressed Steel Car
preferred 1%. The closing was dull and
about steady.
I'or.ds were firm.

IVew York; Cotton.
New York, Oct. 2.—Cotton opened firm, 5 to
6 points higher, on active covering, some
foreign demand and support from the bull
side. The rise was increased to a matter of
7 to 8 points immediately after the call, Jan
uary touch 7.79 c. Within the first hour the
market eased off to 7.74 c for January, under
a turn for profits by scalpers, prompted by
reports that several thousand October "no
tires" were being freely circulated. The Oc
tober option fell off 6 points under this news,
dropping to last night's final bid of 7.70 c. Late j
in the morning the market showed a disposi- !
tion to do better and stiffened to 7.70 c for
January. At midday the market was firm and ;
net 3 to 4 points higher, with sellers scarce. !
