1 Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce, Dec. 20.
Liverpool followed the decline in American mar
kets of yesterday, but the small receipts in the
northwest more than offset this Influence and
the market opened up a small fraction, followed
by a little further advance to above calls. On
the advance holders of calls sold, the market

market is very narrow, the trade practically all

The market showed little change during the

the demand seem* tc be enough to take offer

cash demand was very strong. No. 1 northern

Liverpool again cabled that weather in Ar
gentina *as unfavorable, but this can hardly
be serious as the markets mainly affected by
reports from that country show no apprehension
of any difficulty from that source and refuse to
advance".
Local stocks increased 800.000 bu for five

Broomhall cable: LiverpoolWheat was
easier at the opening with values %d lower,
being influenced by the weaker cables from
America yesterday and continued liquidation by
.smaller traders. Toward midday some steadiness
'developed. May gaining %c owing to a private
cable, which reported wet weather in the Ar
gentine and the expected advance In the bank
rate taking place. Corn was easy at the start
with values unchanged. Trading was extremely
dull with the market neglected.

Today has been a" duplicate of the two pre
ceding days. Market opened weak in all stocks
excepting Cananea Central, Greene Consolidated
and Greene-Cananea, which opened strong and
higher. Later selling and proftt-taking carried
them back to their low prices of yesterday.
There Is a determined effort being made to hold
these three stocks at their present level and
there is no doubt but that they are on the
absolute bottom.
The buying In Superior & Pittsburg wiich was
started by the strike of ore In their Hoatson

counted. Business was very quiet during the
early session and fluctuations were irregular,
with prices holding within 2 or 3 points of
last night's finals. There was Borne buying
here to undo straddles between this market and

situation, the difficulties of the shorts are in
creased.

wheat offerings very light. Crowd all short.
ChicagoWheat market same small affair
that has characterised the trade for several
days. Comstock and A. Hazelhurst bought some
.May wheat, Peavey Grain company buying De
cember 4e under May.
New YorkAmericans in London are all
strong. The fact .that the Bank of England
did not raise its rate should Induce a more
cheerful feeUng, and we think the market today
will show further recovery.
Chicago to Stephens1The
wheat market Is
badly in_, need of new ground on which to
build" a stablW basis for operations. This will
come, ln my Judgment,, from a lower level,
and would like to see a good sharp break on
which export, business would be attracted as
the fundamental influence of a legitimate sort.
Can see nothing to bring about any advances
other than a fractional one, ad should such
occur advise the sellig side, with scalping in
tentions.
