WHEAT FELL INTO DULLNESS, BUT HELD FIRM
Scalping Bulls Were Discouraged
by Yesterday's Break, and
Did Very Little.
NOTHING NEW AS TO ARGENTINE
Liverpool Opened Firm, but Closed
Lower— (iomslm of the Grain
Trade.
Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce, Oct.
22.—The wheat market took on a quiet tone,
following yesterday's decline, and through j
this morning's session held in tight range, i
December opened at 67% c, sold to 67%e, and I
at toon stood at 67%@67%c. There was no
indication of any increased speculative inter
est in a largo way. and the pit element
■how ed little disposition to work for a price
change. A good many small traders had
Just about got their bull enthusiasm warmed
up yesterday, when the change in the tenor
of the Argentine news threw the market
back. Midway in the session the market fell
Into extreme dullness. Chicago had the same
report to make, except that la that market
there was a little weaker tone, in sympathy
With a wavering in corn. Foreign advice*
Were mixed.. Liverpool again opened higher,
by V<i'id. but, rs was the case yesterday,
tbe ariy strength was lost on later selling j
pressure, and the pica* was Mid lower. Paris
closed 5010 centimes lower. Advices from j
Argentine contain nothing especially new,
and in the absence of further reports of bad
conditions, are taken as a little more favor
able. Hradatreet's figures that the world's
vUibie supply increased 2,300,000 bu for the
week.
Pi Unary receipts were 1,115,000 bu and ship
ments 633,000 bu, compared with 1.080,000 and
608,000 last year. Wheat and flour clearances
equaled 3SS,i>22 bu. the bulk or it in flour.
.Minneapolis received ;'.3S cars, against 401
Us*, year, and Duluth 398, against 172.
The close was quiet. December closed at
*>;\(§ C"iie, and May wheat at 70?»e. Chicago
December closed at 70*<:@70%c.
Cash wheat sold slower, and there was not
quite the sharp edge to the market that was
noted yesterday. No. 1 northern held firm at j
l'-e to \'\c over December, a good part at
the latter figure. There was another active j
turn in wheat to arrive and sharp inquiry
(or No. 1. Sales of this grade to arrive were
made at 69c to 69& C The No. - northern
was a shade easier, and sold at l 4 c to M>c
under December. In No. " wheat there was j
also a slightly weaker turn, due to heavier
offerings of this grade. The bulk of No. 3
sold at 65>ic, with a range of 65c to 65% c. Re
jected wheat and no grade sold at 57c to l 2 <'.
Towards the close the No. 3 wheat was very
weak, and to avoid carrying over some lots
were sold late as low as 64e.

CHICAGO GRAIX
Corn on the Down Grade, While
Wheat Does Better.
Chicago, Oct. 22.—Heavy early liquidation
on a poorly supported market started corn
on the down grade. December opened fairly
steady at 55%@55V:>e, on weaker cables and
lack of cash demand. The Liverpool market
continued to sag and though early offer-
Ings were small, the foreign slump started
a selling movement that quickly brought De
cember to 55c. Receipts were 289 cars.
Corn was oversold early and on a recovery
in wheat reacted to Its highest opening price.
Later December sagged off again on a dull
market and closed weak and %c lower, at
65V&@55»4c.
Close: October, 54c; December, 55V 8 @55Vic:
May, 57% c. Cash: No. 2, 55^c; No. 3,
55%@55&c.
December wheat opened unchanged to %c
higher at 70% cto 70% con steady cables. The
news of rain in Argentina which, with weak
cables yesterday, depressed the market, had i
lost its effect, but the liquidation on corn j
brought heaviness in the wheat pit and prices
sagged in consequence, December falling to j
70%@70%c. Later renewed reports of hot
and dry weather in Argentina brought a reac
tion of a shade and steadied the market.
Local receipts were 176 cars, one contract.
Minneapolis and Duluth reported 786 cars,
a total for the three points of 962, against 1,044
last week and 902. a year ago.

INVESTMENT GOSSIP
New York to Whallon:Steady buying of Chi
cago Great Western in a quiet and unostenta- :
tlous way during the last few days, indicates
that the real status of North-Western leal
is being withheld from the public for h pur
pose. Without Great Western it would be
possible to create a very unpleasant rate
situation in both the northwest and south
west.
Lewis from New York: There is an uncer
tainty to the market, which remains narrow
t with trading confined to room traders. This
: element rather favors the bear side, but fail
ing to force any large amount of long stock
; on the market they are continually shifting
their position. The money situation at pres
i cut is being closely watched by both Interests,
and with the banks carrying over $800,000,000
of loans, and currency atill leaving this cen
ter, we are Inclined to look for further ir
regularity in prices.
J. Arthur Joseph, New York, saya: "The
quality of speculation is strained. Profes
j sionals are almost all bearish. They have
made up their minds, erroneously, of course,
that Northern Pacific affairs have struck a
new snag. The Standard Oil crowd tempo- i
rarily is only buying Coppers on a scale. !
Good support will be given to Union Pacific, I
St. Paul and Louisville & Nashville on every
recession. Chicago shorts are covering Peo
ple's Gas. lowa Central and Minneapolis &
St. Louis may be bought and held."
Waldorf Gossip to Watson—lnterest in the '
general list shows only a Blight increase, and
, the general tone of the stock market ie a
waiting one. The developments in the north
west railroad situation Is still the leading In- ,
terest, while in the Industrials there Is a
tendency to hold off any possbly contemplated
new deals and wait for the president's mes
sage to define the policy of the administration
towards the trusts.
Johnson from Mcßeynolds—We are advised
that farmers deliveries of hard wheat in Ne
braska increased liberally.
Counsel man to Pettit: With the exception
of American railway shares, which are im
proving after the tame opening, everything
in London is reported weak. The depression
is ascribed to apprehension of closer work
ing of the money market. This is the day of
the settlement in the mining department.
The annual report of the Great North
ern yesterday shows a decrease in gross earn
ings which the president explains is due to
the practical failure of the spring wheat crop
I last year. Mr. utt] says that not only was
| there less wheat to haul, but as farmers re
ceived less money from their crops their pur
chases were reduced, and ther* was also a
falling off in the corn haul.
Northern Pacific gross earnings for the sec
ond week of October increased $175,265' from
July 1, increased $2,114,876.
Great Northern earnings for the fiscal year
decreased $1,525,943; the balance decreased
$1,504,787.
Jersey Central increased net earnings dur
ing September by $180,234. From Jan. 1 the
increase is $825,637.
SPECULATIVE GOSSIP
Chicago to Edwards & Wood—Late cables
from Argentine report conditions unchanged,
weather hot and dry. As long aa this lasts
no Important weakness la likely. Corn con
tinues to act heavy. Demand is poor and
speculative confidence seems declining. Some
reports of Increased offerings In the country.
Weather favorable for movement.
An Argentine cable this morning read:
"Continued fair weather; 50 per cent damage
In the best wheat provinces; no rain; con
tinued drouth appears to have set In again,
with every prospect of its continuing.
