LOUIS REPUBLIC: THURSDXY. m SUMMARYOFST.LOUISMARKETS heat lost most of the previous day's gains in yesterday's market. This was a natural reaction from tho cicitement caused by Tuesday's bullish foreign news. There was some early strength on stories or drought in the winter belt, but this was oni', temporary, and toward the close of tho sttslon trading sentiment was very bearish. Among tha depressing influences were largo. receipts, a light cash demand and lack of foreign inquiry. Professional traders gave the market Uttle support. They encour aged tho early advance for the purely, s-cltish purpose of taking profits at the top. The movement to other rrlmary points nm not as great as on the corresponding day last year. Tnls, with the occasional reports of drought, caused frequent slight gains, but the trading was mainly by scalpers and there was no bull leader in the Held. Without tho influence of renewed peace negotiations tho market might have shown a good ad vance on the legitimate new3. Tlure are operators who think that the drought con ditions in the West wlU yet be effective In working an advance. Corn showed little strength. Weather and crop reports were generally favorabl and thcro wa3 little buying Interest. Closing prices were slightly lower than on Tuesday. Dec. wheat opened Uc off and doed 167ic off. Dec corn opened 1-lSc up and closed Uc off. Dec. cats closed nominally Uc up. Receipts of produco wero moderate and prices of fruits and -vegetables were gen erally steady.

AMALGAMATED COPPER IS FEATTJEE OP TRADING. Conspicuous Favor Sr:wn in the Speculation to Ind jstriala and Specialists and Low-Grade Issues. New yorlc, Xov. a Dispatches from London this morning reported that the war panic of yestero,,y had entirely sub sided and that there haj iecn no'sround for It at any Um There was some recur rence of tinea Inec- reported in foreign markets later In the day, but it had littles reflection here. The local markctjBcdaed to havo recov-j ered 1U c-jtaanimlty.'and alter feeding tho early demand freely with realizing sale- ino advance in prices vras taKen up again, The day's market proved decidedly patchy, however, and the successive advances which were made at different points in tho market did not Induce much sympathetic response. Tho list did not move decidedly in company at any time during the day. There was conspicuous favor shown in tho speculation to the industrials and special ties, including: a number of low-grade is sues. Amalgamated Copper was the feature of the trading, and its rise to a new high level for e movement was accompanied by many rumors of a final settlement of the long-drawn-out contest of the Mon tana copper interests. Sanguine trade es timates also helped the stock. ' SUGAR. Sugar and United States Steel preferred continued to keep It company, the latter In a moderate wav. Denials of the current rumors of an option secured on the Heinze properties did not check the movement lm Amalgamated Copper. Er.d was the feature of the railroad list, and tho only news to explain tho advance, was a report that a sale of a block of several millions of Its convertible bonds bad been effected. There was no official sanction for this report, but rumors were circulated of the extensive betterments upon which the proceeds of the bond sale would be Immediately laid out- The earn ings were also said to bo improving fast. The reported Erie projects wcro a help to United States Steel preferred, as were the reports of large buying of steel products, including rails, by the Burlington. Reading was the only stock to show close sympathy with the movement of Erie. Tho Western stocks were Inclined to hang back except Rock Island and Union Pacific The belated rlBe In those awak ened little rcsponso amongst the other grangers and Pacifies. A new rumor was afloat rocardlna the 'local traction mpre-w making terms at which control of Metro politan Securities had been acquired. Strength of Smelting and Lead caused revived rumors of a lead merger. The leather stocks enjoyed a period of strength. There were other features of minor importance and of only Individual significance. There was a marked falling ou. in ine activity or mo marKet ana tne buying was inclined to diminish in each separate stock as It made its Isolated ad vance. But there was little Increase of selling pressure on tho advances and sentiment was undisturbed. The gains in net earn ings for September for the Pennsylvania and Rock Island systems were viewed with satisfaction, although duo in both cases to retrenchment of operating ex penses. Money continued easy, and tho gold engagement for Cuba was regarded without uneasiness. The bharp reaction In sterling exchange was attributed to proflt-taking by specu lative .dealers rather than to any chango in the conditions in that market. The un- cvenness of tho market continued up to the closing, which was irregular. - Bonds were irregular. Total sales, par -value. SA3.000.

New war complications having been eliminated aa a possibility for the present, there was a feeling at the opening that such rumors would leao the market without its chief support. This nervousness among holders was added to by lower Liverpool cables, and the market started out weak. But there were two important bull fac tors to be considered. The first was the unmistakable falling off in the Western movement. Tho second was tho adverse news coming from nearly all winter wheat Stutes regarding drought and Hessian fly. Under the first head Uie Northwest mar kets showed but CSS cars, against 792 last year; primary markets showed SSO.000 bu., compared with a trifle less than 1.000,000 bu. same day last year. Minneapolis houses wired that agents along the lines were reporting a further drop in the spring wheat shipments to that market. The Northwest did some buying here. There was early buying on a liberal scale for December by several leading concerns, and Cudahy brokers bought on the weak spots. Vrtltnttne made a show of selling some May wheat on the advance, nhlch was fol lowed by fair Bales by Spencer, Knight Donnelly, Ware-Leland and others. There was, however, nothing like aggressive bear operations at any time and the market closed with the trade a little dull and prices at reaction to exactly the level of the close on Tuesday. Tho weakness at St. Louis was an Influ ence in the reaction. The Broomhall ca ble mentioned the probability of a reduc tion of the Spanish duty on wheat the first of the year, Australian advices gas tho approaching harvest much short of tho yields of 1903, Detroit sent messages saying Hessian fly in Michigan wheat flelds. INSECTS IN OHIO. Ohio grain men on the floor reported flelds In that Statu alive with the Insect, and in sections of Missouri it is claimed that resecding is going on where the early fields have been seriously injured. The lo cal cash market was steady to Arm. with milling hales a little better at T5.O0O bu. or all grades. Northwest reported demand slow. Kansas City claimed that No. 4 hard wheat was selling to mills at 2a over tho dav before. The enthusiastic bulls in the trade are looking ahead and predict ing that the contrast between movement from this crop and tho enormous run of uhtat to Western market during Novem ber, 130B, wiU bo even more of a bull fac tor from day to day. Tho point was made also that interior elevators in Northwest held but S,o00,000 at this date in previous years. CORN FEATURES. Perhaps the most striking fcaiuxo in tho corn trade was tho reaction 'in tho Dec- price of c from best point and tho net loss for tie day of 34c at has been the cJilef stook In trade for corn bulls that the Dec price was likely to show considerable Enap influenced by cash premiums, light stocks and small arrivals of old corn. Tho trade had the help of 4o to lc advance in No. 3 cash corn on tho tables. Thcro was aTepetltlon of the claim of yesterday from Nebraska points that corn husking Is not up to expectations. Kansas City houses w era predicting that the movement of new com 1. likely to be quite limited all through this month. The local rccoipts were limited to CI car. and estimated is but 5 cars. There was evon somt buying of December com by Armour brokers early and one commis sion houso bought fully 300,000 bu. May corn about the same time. With all this Dec mado but Ho advance, aad lost it all before the close. The May covered tho narrow range from 45HC to 4574c and closed practically the same as yesterday. Prlngle. Freedman and other professionals were free fellers of May com at times. CHANGES IN OATS. Tradlns in oats most of tho day was characterized by considerable changing, buying of May and selling of July at about the same prlco, and buying of May and selling of Dec at about Pic difference. Otherwise conditions wore much tho samo as in corn, small receipts of 81 cars, lirm and somewhat higher cash prices and yet the market alter a 111110 upturn 01 o or more reacted and closed at cxactiy Tussday'o prices. PROVISIONS ADVANCE. Provision, made a good advance on buy ing of ribs and pork by Cudahy I'acklr:; Company. The liberal decreases In local stocks and private estimates placing tho decrease In world's lard stocks at S.'.M tierces were aoded buying incentives and pr,ces advanced ECT20C Local hog receipts t,to), estimate 21,wO, prices at tno yards Dc higher.

Conflicting statements us to the condition of the growing wheat crop had a counterbalance effect on prices to-day, a sharp rally being followed by an almost equally precipitate; decline. At the close wheat quotations wero practically Identical with yesterday's final figures. Com Is off Uc. Oats aro unchanged and provisions are Cc to 20c higher. Reassuring advices regarding Russo-An-glo affairs and lower prices in foreign grain markets wero tho main cause of con siderable selling of wheat here when trad ing began. Opening quotations on both the Dec. and May deliveries showed losses, tho former being off 'Jo to ic at JL114 to JL11H. May was down ;j3',c to Oiff'ic at JL111; to 1L11J.. Bearish sentiment, how ever, survived only a brief period. News from the Southwest was extreme ly bullish, numerous reports of damage by Hessian flies and drought being received from various sections of the wlnter-w heat belt. Somo of the messages from Kansas wero radical, declaring that the condition of growing crop is the worst ever experi enced in that region. In addition to the poor showing claimed for tho new crop, tho movement of wheat from the farms continued to diminish lnfvolume. Arrivals in the Northwest to-dav were considerably less than last car, while the total primary receipts wcro anout io per cent smancr than those of tho corresponding day a year ago. Prom the start shorts were active buy ers. Tho decline with which trading com menced wa& soon overcome and tho ad vance that followed did not halt until the prlco of Dec. had reached S1.13tj. over a cent above where It stopped the previous afternoon. May was somewhat less elas tic, although the prlco advanced to T1.12S- Sentiment In the pit then suddenly shift ed to the bear side. During the latter part of tho session trading showed less animation and the market loit almost all of tho eariy advance. Tho cauEe of tho change in sentiment was a report of a local crop statistician stating that the condition of winter wheat in Ohio. In diana. Illinois. Missouri and Kansas is not so bad as a year ago. Tho market closed barely steady at JL121S. Pinal figures on May were at ILU.v3fil.i2. Clearance"! of wheat and flour were equal to 33.000 bu. Primary rcce'pts were 8S1.C0O bu., compared with 1 2S3.O0O bu. a year ago. Minneapolis, uu luth and Chicaco reported rccelotH of C-ll cars, against 7S5 cars last week and 956 cars a year ago. COP.N. An easier tone wis manifested in the com market as a result of moderate sell ing by pit tra'derJ. Lower cables and a continuation of excellent weather condi tions wer largely responsible for the -of ferings, nwnnr was omuv local. jh j illustration of the quietness of outside dc- mand was furnished by to-day's ship ments, which were only one-fifth of those the corresponding day last year. Dee. opened a shade to 'itWic lower at 4SSc to "ST-ic, sold up to 48;c and closed at 48,p 4Sc Local lecclpts were 61 cars, none of which wero of contract grade. OATS. A feature of trading in tho oats market was large purchases of July by a promi nent packlng-housf Interest. Tho market held steady throughout tho entiro session. Shorts were good buyers. Dec opened Ho to Uc lower at 2Si'j25s;c, sold up to 2S? 29c, and closed at 2Sc Local receipts wero 81 cars. RANGE OP FUTURES. Opening, lllsfcest. Lowest. Clojlng.

Tho weather re ports hdd some early effect on values, but prospects of a peaceful settlement of Uie dispute between England and Russia was so bearish a factor that few traders cared to add to their lines.
