HEAVY PRESSURE ON A STUBBORN MARKET
Wheat Made Only Moderate Decline
Although Everything in Sight
Was Bearish.
HEAVY N. W. AND PRIMARY RUN
World* Vittible Supply Increased
. 7,000,000 Bu.—Foreign Mar
kets Soft.
Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce, Nov.
26.—Wheat was off a fraction at the opening
this morning on large northwestern receipts
and easier cables. Minneapolis and Duluth
showed up with 1,263 cars, against 486 -last
year. Primary receipts were twice as heavy
as last year. Liverpool was % to %d lower
on wheat and %d lower on corn. This corn
decline was discouraging to coarse-grain op
»;r»}or8 and brought lower openings In both
t-jt-n and oats, tome of this effect working
Into wheat. St. Louis was the strongest mar
ket' oa wheat, taking the relatively firm tone
from a, new lot of reports of dry weather
southwest. May wheat opened at 72@72}&c
and December at bit Vie, both holding in Me
range to noon. No heavy offerings were
noted anywhere. Commission-house trade
was light and featureless. New buying or
ders ran, about as much to December as to
_ May. Broomhall's correspondent in Argen
tine cabled report of moderate damage by
bail in Santa Fe province. Continental mar
kets were very dull. Paris showed a trace
of further strength, tout lost it, closing 6
centimes lower on wheat and flour. Antwerp
"was again unchanged. Bradstreet figures the
world's supply to show an Increase of 7,000,
--000 bu. Last year at this time world's stocks
decreased 312,000 tru. Of this week's increase.
6,541,000 bu is east of the Rocky mountains
and 1,400,000 bu in stocks in Europe ana
afloat. This, in connection with the Increase
of over 10,000,000 bu last week, was the bear
ish item of the day, and In Chicago the scalp
ing element turned sellers on it. Some press
ure was felt, but the market held.
Receipts at primary points were 1,438,000
bu, against 784,000 bu last year, and ship
ments 424,000 t>u, against 653,0t>0 bu. Clear
ances of wheat and flour amounted to 560,000
bu. Minneapolis received 405 oars, against
i!9S last year, and Duluth had 798 against 190.
At the close the selling pressure forced an
other small break and the market closed
•weak at 71^c for May and 69c for December.
Chicago May closed at 75 1,i@756 / j,c.
The cash market showed continued good de
maud. Local elevators and millers bought
freely and a tow outside buyers were agaiu
in evidence. The price basis remained prac
tically unchanged, No. 1 northern going at
over December and No. 2 northern
at lc under. Xo. 3 wheat sold from tiae to
6tic and rejected and no grade from 59c to 64c.

Decline in Wheat and Steady Open
ing in Corn.
Chicago, Nov. 26.—Lower cables brought a
decline of %c to %c in December wheat at the
opening, with prices at 72% cto 72c. Offerings
were liberal and heavy receipts, especially in
the northwest, influenced an easier feeling.
The outsldo markets were sellers here, but
this pit took the offerings well and the sell
ing- pressure fell off shortly after the open
ing. A fair scattered demand sprang up and
the pit took on a firmer tone, though prices
continued to hover around opening figures.
Receipts, 102 ears, 21 contract; Minneapolis
and Duluth reported 1,163 carß, a total for
the three points of 1,365, against 1,369 last
week and 776 a year ago.
The market ruled duil to the end of the
session and closed at the bottom price De

Corn opened steady, notwithstanding lower
cables and larger receipts than were estimat
ed. December started Y*c to %c lower at
62^0 to 62c, but the offerings were still small
and the demand fairly active. The effect
of yesterday's profit taking could be seen
in this pit, but prices began to advance
coon. At the end of the first hour December
sold at 62% c. Receipts, 94 cars.
The close was easy, December %@%c down

had been weakened by the advance in prices

INVESTMENT GOSSIP
New York to L, T. Sowle: The stock mar
ket started out active but quite irregular.
Copper had a feeble rally, but it seems now
to have taken its old position at the head of
the forces that are pointed downward. New
York Central, on the other hand, 1b leading
the bull forces forward. Sugar is active.
New York to C. E. Lewis: Union Pacifio
and Copper are the conspicuously weak fea
tures. The renewed selling In the latter is
bringing in some pressure on the railroads.
New York to Smith: Standard Oil crowd
are buying Amalgamated Copper. Insiders
say the limit of decline has been almost
reached, and a 10-point or more recovery
is due to follow. We are inclined to look
for higher prices for Erics, Atchison and Mis
souri Pacific.
Whallon, from New York: Manipulation
has a hard hit in the Copper decline. Losses
are very heavy. One house sold 2,500 shares
on which there was 40 points loss. Think
everything points to a general inclination to
take profits.
New York to Wetion: The meetings of the
various executive committees of the Vander
bilt roads being held to-day are preliminary
to the annual meetings usually held during
the third week in December. Later we expect
some important developments, which will ex
plain the continued „ strength of New York
Central and absorption of the stock.

STOCK PRICES FALL
Opening in Wall Street Marked by
Irregularity.
AMALGAMATED COPPER HARD HIT
Market Becomes Firmer. Vet Closet*
Very Dull and About
Steady.
New York, Nov. 26. —The course of prices
J was very irregular in the opening dealings in
I stocks. There were 4,500 shares of Amalga
i mated Copper sold at B*o to 80%, but heavy !
j seling drove prices down again to 79%.' There !
j was some depression among the Pacifies and I
: one or two of the coalers and Baltimore &
Ohio. Pressed Steel Car preferred dropped
1%. New York Central was lifted 1% on large I
buying and Pennsylvania advanced a point, j
and there were numerous fractional gains.
Sugar and People's Gas were advanced a i
point, but liquidation in Amalgamated Cop- ;
per carried it down to 78% and induced heavy I
; selling elsewhere. New York Central and j
Pennsylvania reacted to % below yesterday's ,
close, Baltimore & Ohio, Lackawanna, Loco-.!
motive and Smelting a point, and St. Paul, '
Manhattan and Sugar a point from the besr, j
Buying .by the shorts steadied the market j
and the bulls bid prices up strongly, Sugar
rebounding to 122% and New York Central,
St. Paul, Manhattan and Amalgamated rally- ;
ing a point from the lowest. St. Louis South- j
western declined 1% and Hocking Coal and
Pump preferred gained a point. The course I
of prices turned downward again toward 11 j
o'clock.
Prices dropped rapidly for a time, Amalga
mated Copper dipping to 78 and the general j
list ruling between 1 and 2 points below early
high, prices. There appeared to be a con
certed movement against the short interests ;
at 11:30, as St. Paul, Pensyivania, New York \
Central, Wabash preferred and the tractions, i
Sugar and Amalgamated were marked up !
from 1 to 2 .points, and other stocks hard- }
ened decidedly. The market wavered un
certainly at the : advance and the activity
decreased.
Sugar and Manhattan were advanced to j
123% and 137% respectively, but there was 1
dullness and irregularity elsewhere. The !
leaders fell off later and there was some
liquidation of Baltimore & Ohio which low- |
ered it 1%. Manhattan again rallied to the
top. Trading was almost at a standstill at j
times. :;;•-_:-
The irregularity of Amalgamated Copper,
■which covered a point range, . frequently
checked operations in other stocks. The stock
rallied to 80, broke to 79 and was again lifted
to 80%. • Baltimore & Ohio and St. Louis & j
San Francisco, fell steadily, the last named,
losing over 2 points.
. Amalgamated Copper recovered to nearly a
point over last night and the general market
was firmer in sympathy. Wabash rose about
a point over last night, the preferred 1%, St.
Paul 1%, Hocking Valley 1% and Wheeling &
Lake Erie second preferred and Southern !
Railway preferred a point. General Electric
rose 7 in all. A check to the recovery in
Amalgamated' Copper once more affected the
general market. St. Paul reacted over a
point. The closing was very dull and about
steady. • :: :^,-? :;
Bonds were irregular.

*®F THE LAKES, .
Cleveland— situation is somewhat weak
er again to-day, and it looks like a tame I
1 wind-up for the season. Some ore is to be
J had from the head of Lake Superior, but
1 very few cargoes are still to come from Es- ;'
| canaba. Vessel owners are afraid of Lako j
! Superior ore on account of the danger of | ;
' frost making it unfit to move. Coal ship- i
pers are trying to send forward a few more ':
I Lake Superior cargoes and are, therefore, :
' offering in the meantime as little coal as j
S possible for Lake Michigan. j
Chicago—The grain trade has gone Into the 1
doldrums, which always marks the near ap
proach or the end of navigation. Boats were
on the market to-day at 2%c on wheat—a
I drop from 2%c, which has ruled for two or '■,
; three weeks. At the decline, vessel owners '
are hesitating about sending their boats out
i again, with a good prospect of being held up
! at Buffalo on account of the grain blockade,
I and it is likely that a number of vessels now
; unloading coal will go direct into winter
quarters.
Detroit—The Detroit, Belle Isle and Wind
sor Ferry company has let a contract with
the Detroit Shipbuilding company for a new
steel passenger propeller for the Detroit and
! Bols Blanc route. The new boat will be
1 twice the size of the. steamer Pleasure, the
■ new boat In the line. The boat will have
' a greater carrying capacity than the Pleas
, ure, Promise and Sappho combined, and will
! be launched at Wyandotte early In June.

SPECULATIVE GOSSIP
Chicago to Whallon: "The action of yes
terday's wheat market clearly Indicates that
the persistent buying must be ever present
to maintain prices. The news is decidedly
bearish. The market should sell off some
what, and, If one is bullish on the market,
take on a small line on a break. Corn has
had about all the rise It can stand for a time
and the market looks lower for the present."
Chicago reported grain freights dull, with
rumors of lower dates. So far as could be
learned, the rumors were not confirmed by
actual charters. Business reported was to
Buffalo.
Total clearances: Wheat, 301,000 bu; flour,
35,000 brls; corn, 151,000 bu; oats, 12,000 buj
wheat and flour equals 459,000 bu.
