Liquidation by local longs and an Indisposition on tho part of traders In general to open new accounts to carry over Sunday reniltcd In a set back to grf.ln prices to-day, and May wheat closed He lower. May corn and oats were each down '4S?Jc, while Jan. provisions closed from T'.ic to l"!jc lower. WHEAT. Tho fact that cablci did not respond to the advance here jesttrday caused an cailer tone in nlieat at the start, and opening sales of May were unchanged to c lower at 82tfc to 82c. There tias a fair scattered demand ear ly, but offerings weie more than Mifficlcnt to meet the wa:its,-"1uid, after selling at SSSJJic. May gradually declined. Local longs sold freely throughout the entire session and there was, nothing in the way of news to stimulate a large buing move ment. With the exception of the July op tion, which was firm on continued dry weather in the winter-wheat section, tho market closed weak, with May '.c lower at Sliic, after filing at S2SlS2J,c. Clear ances of wheat and flour were equal to 36,100 tu. Primary receipts were 976.600 bu.. against M9.910 bu. a year ago. Min neapolis, Duluth and Chicago reported re ceipts of 676 cars, against 878 cars last w eek and SSI cars a year ago. CORN. Expectations of heavy deli erles on Dec. contracts caused liberal liquidation of that option in tho corn pit, and tho market weakened under the pressure to sell. Tho weakness In wheat also had a depressing Influence. The demand was only moderate and from scattered bources. After opening a shade to i5jlc lower at 43tc to cAc, May sold between 42V43c and fPffiVPie. closing at -13'c. Local receipts were 2)3 cars, with 7 of contract grade. OATS. Tho samo conditions that governed wheat and corn prevailed in oats and tho market ruled weak. Local longs sold-out their Dec holdings, and this affected the whole list.

A . .wwarvA The one developed claim, the "Keystone, owned by this company, is producing from $10,000 to $18,000 rjer moiini. io ucai in l.-uls ami no conservatne. wo win take last mouths record: , 'J'he compauy produced latt month $10,0OU. whleh was not full capacity, onintr to an accident at the mill. Sixty per cent of thib amount was prollt. or $0,000 in one mouth; making a total of $72,000 a year net proUt, At tho pip.sent price, CO cents a share, the total investment represents $.'100,000, as there are ouly 000,000 shares outstanding. Therefore, the company earned last month at. the rate of 20 per cent per annum on the investment. Is this not letter than promising 100 per cent proflt on a prospective advance in tho stock? In all our advertlee mentH we bare stated the absolute facts, allowing the Investors to draw their own conclusions. Tho company owns seven additional claims adjoining the "Keystone," and it Is to develop this property that 100.000 shares of treasury stoek are offered for sale. There is sufficient ore Mocked, out and in sight in the "Key stono" to return every dollar invested, with an opportunity for large profits when the adjoining ground Is opened up. Tins company has no debts, and all the property and equipment is owned, in fee simple. Two Huntington mills and a c3-nnlde plant are in full operation, and sufficient money Is being earned to pay nil expenses and G per cent per annum ou the jwr value of the stock, ror 10 per cent on the present selling price. In addition to tho above, the company is creating a surplus for emergencies. Many investors ast the question: If it is such a good thing, how is it that stock is offered for sale? The qnestion la easily answered. It will take $60,000 to de velop the adjoining claims, and the company would have to wait several years to create a surplus of eufficletit slzo to pay this extra expense, and more money could be made for all concerned If this property was opened ttp at once, for a larger production would reduce the expenses materially. Standard Oil Is good stock. Why was It offered for sale? For the very same reason it Increased the production and reduced the expenses proportionate ly. Tuts stock would have been listed on the Excnnnges an over uie country, but the public has ceased buying listed stock, as It Is subject to the manipulations of tho "stock gambler," and they are looking for permanent in vestments. The "speculative age" ts over. The fact that we are selling more Nevada Keystone than the total sales on the St. Louis Stock Exchange proves this statement beyond the pcradventuro of a doubt. ' Nevada Keystone at 60 cents a Bhare.-par value $1.00, Is an absolutely safe Investment The gold is In the mine, and there Is no competition in disposing of It, for the U. S. Government will take all the gold produced. Where could you find a more stable Investment? The bank references of the company are Ocean Park Bank, Ocean Park, CaL; Merchants' National Bank. Santa Monica, Cal.; Broadway Bank and Trust Co., Los Angeles, Cal. The Missouri Trust Co. of St. Louis Is the registrar. Any one seeking a legitimate mining Investment will do well to investigate this proposition. This stock will advance In a few days. A postal card to the authorized agents will bring full particulars.

To bo sure, trade experts, nephews of steel magnates, cousins of friends of an ex presldent and boon companions of enemies of the latter took to predicting that the stock would sell a't 40.

In the. absence of trading by tho big professionals there was a general disposition on tho part of the smaller operators to ease their lines over Sunday and to take small profits on slight advances. Most of tho legitimate market news was rather bearish and foreign prices wero on the downturn. Local and primary receipts showed a sUght decrease. Pre dictions of colder weather were not borne out, but there was still some fear that lack of moisture would retard the growth of the crop In many sections of tho South and Southwest. The commission-houses had few outsldo orders and most of thoso re ceived wtro for selling account. Armour was not actlvo and all other domestic mar kets wero on the downturn. There was some early buying on dry weather, but tho s'trength of the market latar disappeared on estimates of a 704,000,000 crop for 1501 and on an lncreaso In the stocks in store. The Orange-Judd Farmer's estimate that the year's corn crop would amount to 2,340,000,000 bushels was not very good reading for the corn bulls. Though local re ceipts were light and cables wero higher, tho market was draggy and weak. In line with wheat. May wheat opened l-16c off and closed USSc oft. May com opened He off and closed He off. May oats closed '.be off. Receipts of produce were moderate and there was a good bujlng demand for fruits and vegetables. - Local securities were extremely dull. United Railways preferred nlone wag active. Yesterday's bank clearings were $6,732,1?;, balances $$78,824. Discount rates were steady between 5' and 6 per cent. Spot cotton was linn In Uie local market. STATEMEST OF BASK AVERAGES. WHEAT VALUES ARE EASY ON SATURDAY LIQUIDATION. CORX ALSO IS OX DOWNTURN. THE Big .Crops and Generally Bearish News Cause Moderate , Recessions. After a short season of buying at the be ginning of tho session, the local market eased off and closed dull and lower. Tho manipulators, who have been putting up prices for several days, were Inactive, and tho shorts apparently had covered. Small operators wero Inclined to take profits on small advances, and there was the usual Saturday liquidation. Xews was rather favorable to the selling side. Re ceipts w ere large and local stocks In store wero on the Increase. The littlo buying done was on tho strength of dry weather. May wheat opened l-16c off and sold at: 'MUSSISC.

Tho Orange-Judd estimate that tho 1903 crop wa more than 2,000,000,000 bushels helped the downward moement. Local receipts were light and cables wero a trifle higher.

Tho Financier this week says: The feature of tho official statement of the New York Associated Banks last week ' was the net gain of 8517,200 In cash, where as the estimates which were based upon the traceable, movements of money dur Ing tho week Indicated a loss of SS&200. This discrepancy between tho official and tho estimated changes in this, Item may vory easily be accounted for by tha sys tem of averages. Payments by the assay office for Imported gold wero large, but they were unequally distributed through the week, and,, moreover, the disburse- ment on Friday of 8430.000 for gold re ceived from Boston, which had been lm-. ported by a Boston bank, though counting for but one-sixth of the amount, had somo Influence. The deposits increased Jl.348.400 as the result of the gain In cash and of the aug mentation of tho loans. Tho required re serve was Increased 8337,100 because of this gain in deposits, and deducting this sum from the net lncreaso of cash, leaves $180. 102 as the gain In surplus reserve, which Item Is now 88,306,300. Computed upon th basis of deposits, less those of 836.801,100 of public funds, the surplus Is 115.505,375. The increase In loans was somewhat un expected, but It was probably caused by the renewal of activity at advancing prices In the stock market: this, is Indicat ed by tho average dally bank clearings -for the week, which were 8218,000,000, against 8203,000,000 In the previous week. The clear ings on Saturday, reflecting Friday's busi ness, were 822803,030. The statement showed a good balance, the sum of the In crease In loans and of cash being 81.697.500. or only (331,400 more than the Increase In deposits. The surplus reserve will doubtless be augmented In the current week through the arrivals of gold from Europe, which metal is now In transit. Moreover, the transfers hence to San Francisco are un derstood to be practically at an end. The transfers to New Orleans will probably contlnue. but these will be much more than offset by the net gains on the direct Interbank movement of money. The Subtreasury operations last week were largely against the banks because of a fallmK off in pension disbursements and'of the heavy transfers of Internal rev enue collections and of payments by the banks on account of the 5-per-cent re demption fund. One feature of the state ment was the decrease in specie, wbiln t.,t tjsntlora Inrrpfuwd The loss In tuP former was probably due to the fact that foreign bankers are employing much of the gold which they are receiving from abroad in the purchase of exchange. The gain in legal tenders was most likely caused by receipts from near-by Interior points and also to some accumulations or this kind of money In anUcipatlon or hol iday requirements.
