Wheat Gets Another Bad Fall and
doses Weak Near the
Bottom.
Stop-Loss Orders Reached and
Much Selling" Out of
Long Stuff.
Bears May Be Pressing It a Little
Too HardNews of the
Trade.
Minneapolis Chamber of Commerca, Feb. 17.
Another break In whtat was made after the
opening today. May going to 81 %c and Chicago
May to 83%c. Stop-loss orders were reached
just under 82c, and theii execution forced the
market down. The pit then felt that the worst
of the preasure was over with and on short cov
ering May went back to Sl^c. Later it ^as ru
mored that there wan more long wheat to come
out, that would be loosened ft little farther down
gome buyers had appeared, who believed SI 'jc
low enough and took on a little wheat for a re
action, but they got scared again and concluded
that they had not found low point after all, and I
when the market, after making a iespect*ble i
jaily, again fell back a fraction, they sold out.
The market went baok to former low point of
61%o, and stuck there against a new low point
In Chicago, which touched 8So. The pit was ner
vous, however, and the market shaky. Thi* I
kept buyers out and prices kept sinking until
Minneapolis May struck 81 %o and Chicago May
82%o, and there was only a feeble recovery of a
small fraction at the close.
The local decrease ran a little heavier than
the estimate, or 241,048 bu, which brought the
total in the week's report to a shade under
18,000,000 bu, or to 14,9ei,574. For one day,
however, since making up the report, there
was an increase of 60,000 bu. which puts the
total back again over 15,000,000. Receipts today
trere 816 ears here against 225. Duluth got 49
against 43, Chicago 9 against 15, Winnipeg 124

against 40,000 and Kansas City 84,000 against

A central Indiana correspondent of Kneeland
Cays: "If it keeps on freezing and thawing
{much longer there will be no wheat in this local.
ity. Wheat la surely damaged, but, of course*
cannot tell yet how bad."
Coamings thinks the speculative situation is
now getting a little precarious for the persis
tent bean, and says "fully 75 per cent of the
ales of wheat this week have been for short
account. Where they will get wheat to cover
their short contracts when they try, it is dif
natalt to figure out. W are running into a
montit where the crop damage scares are fre
.Bonlt to figure out. We are running into a
'Winter wheat can have gone thru the freezing
and thawing lt.ha* been subjected to this win
ter without doing more or less damage."
Broomhall cabled: Liverpool wheat easy at
'opening, %d lower, followed later by a further
decline of %%d The weakness was due to
further liquidation by local longs and bears
hammering. There were heavy Australian ship
ments. There was some steadiness on the de
cline, owing to a good continental demand for
cargoes oft coast. The market appears oversold.
In the Commercial West, Jones says:
"The United States, with Canada, urobably has
80,000,000 to 90,000,000 bu surplus now on hand.
This is quite an item for the bulla to carry,
barring any serious injury to the next crop,
and with a fairly full quota to ship from Argen
tina India is still in doubt and with apparent
confirmation of damage from drought, which willl
ield a smalller surplus for export than came
from that country last year. On this account
there Is a possibility that Australia will ship
wbent to India, thus lessening the supply to
Europe. At present, however, Australia Is ship
ping freely, as is Argentina, and Europe is get
ting about her requirements outside of the
T*nlted States and Canada. It Is not time for
positive opinion about the price."
Asurallan shipments for flie week were 1,538,-
ooo bu against 1,592,000 last week and 2,040,-
000 a year ago.
THE FLOUR MARKET
JKRICES HOLD TTF AGAINST THE WEAKNESS
IK WHEAT.
No reduction was made In flour this morning,
Respite the further decline in wheat. Millers
pronounced the market dull and tending easier,
Kit were averse to reducing quotations until
i assured that wheat is lower to stay for a while.
[Should the market go to 81c for cash wheat,
and settle, flour would go lower, but price
jebanges for the immediate future are not likely
pto he very great. There was complaint pf a
flack of foreign interest, and domestic trade is
moderate. Next week's production will probably
we somewhat lighter.

cast of the world's shipments showed a liberal
movement, and weather conditions In the
United States were reported as favorable to the
fall-sown crop of T\heat. May opened %c to
%c lower, at 88%c to 83%c, and for a time
held within the opening figures. Minneapolis,
Duluth and Chicago reported receipts of 374
cars, against 381 cars last week and 288 cars
a year ago.

,New York, Feb. 17.Opening prices in the
stork market were fractionally irregular with a
downward tendency. Reading, Northern Pacific,
Atlantic Coast Line, Amalgamated Coppei and
Sugar were among those that were depressed a
good fraction, while St. Paul was the mwt
conspicuous of those that moved the other way.
Lead advanced 1%.
Not enough buiing orders made their appear
ance to afford nny bulwark against Ihe selling,
and there was a general decline when the efforts
to support special stocks became futile. Busi
ness expanded as the list got lowei, and theie
was considerable selling of long stock in various
quarters. Amongtt the losses of the first hour
were Lnion Pacific. Louisville & Nashville,

Power slumped 14% on one sale. Losses ran
from 1 to 1% for the principal active stocks
with only a few exceptions. The extent of the
decline Invited profit taking by the bears and
the buying to cover shorts caused some rallies.
Rallies were feverish and were accompanied by
renewed declines at other points. The closing was
unsettled and weak.

The market ib quiet with prices unchanged. It
seems as if all good news that car be received
fiom these properties has been discounted and
that stocks are destined to go lower before they
again take on their old stiength. At a meeting
of the Keweenaw stockholders held in New
York, Thomas Cole and James oat son of the
Bonanza llicle mlne were elected to the board
of directors. Ibis was a rather disappointing
meeting, as it was expected that the "Cole"
crowd would have at least a majority of the
directors. Noith Butte has declared a dividend
of $1.25 per share. This is an increase of 50c
over the dividend paid the last quartet
