PRIVATE WIRES. 300 I. FOURTH ST. STOCK MARKET BREAKS AFTER OPENING HOPEFULLY. NORTHERN SECURITIES DE CISION ONE MOTIVE. Special Cause of Flurry in Money Placing of $10,000,000 Pennsyl vania Oar Trust Bonds. New York, Nor. S. Tno opening deal ings In the stock market this morning rave every evidence of a renewal of strong npirmrd movement. Price, were generally higher, .sd the volume of activity was Considerably above that for several days post. It wa. evident that advantage was taken of the higher level of price, to market stock. Thla has so frequently been the action of the market through the recent period of its advance that not much apprehen sion was caused, especially as new points of strength were developed and large buy ing ordora passed from one to another. The fact that only one or two stocks were strong at a time, aroused the suspicion that the market was being supported for the purpose of realizing. The existence of this suspicion made the market vulnerable, and when the rate for call loans flurried. to 4 per cent in the afternoon, stocks came out freely from all quarters of the room, and prices broke rather precipitately. Some of the features of strength had nominal explanations for their advance, but the subsequent market caused the Impression that the advance fbould have been manipulated for pur poses of sustaining the market. 3he electric stocks made wide gains, the heavy demand for copper pointing the argument that electrical Industries are very active. The special movements in Atchison and Louisville, and Nashville were based on corn and cotton-crop pros pects. There was some accumulation of Read ing, but its early advance was- fractlonaL. There was enormous absorption, both of "United States Steel preferred, and of the sinking-fund bonds and tho operations were attributed in large degree to the operations of a pool. Colorado Fuel was the only one of the independent steel stocks to show marked sympathy. The movement in Brooklyn Transit and Man hattan was paralleled by that in Inter borough Transit on the curb. BALANCED BT CURB. On the other hand, the persistent heavi ness of the Pacifies on tho Stock Ex change hod Us counterpart In the decline of Northern Securities on the curb. The motive seemed to be disappointment over the further postponement of a decision In the Northern Securities case. But these scattering points of weakness were en veloped in the latter decline, which over came the -n boie market and wiped out the gains In the few strong spots. The special cause for the flurry In the money market, was said to be the plac ing of over JIO.O0O.O0O of Pennsylvania Car Trust bonds. But many larger transac tions than that have been conducted In the money market in tho last few weeks without disturbance. It was perceived this morning that some of the largest recent lenders of money were not in the market, and those who delayed fllllnc their re quirement until late, bid up the rato to the -per-cent level. There wore no further engagements of gold for export, but the foreign exchange market continued Ann, Last prices were only slightly above the lowest and the closing tone was weak at losses, generally of between 1 and 2 points.

REPUBLIC SPECIAL. Chicago, Nov. 22. Because the Liverpool market responded to the Influence of wet weather In Argentina, rather than to that of the decline In American prices, with an advance of Z'M1. because liquidation had for the moment tun Its course, and still more because of tho lar?e ahsorp tlon of wheat by Annoti- jctcrday, the local market opened str'-ig and excited, from -Sl'io higher, with anxious cover ing by scattered shorts, who had been banking on a continuation of the de cline, on profit-taking and Felling by local traders, who feared the Armour wheat would be on sale on any bulge. There were reactions; but at Its weak est May showed a gain of c at S1.004. and touched 1.10. a net advance of lic. Heavy offerings here forced another sharp break, but on all the dips, instead of liquidation, was a fair speculative de mand, and tho market alu'ays mlll.d. closing at Sl.CJ-'i sellers, a net gain of lUc lor the day.

Northwest receirts still heavy, the flour demand and the milling demand fcr wheat generally rather dull, nlt.iouh there were some scattered Indications of improve ment. Local scalocrs were timid about bujing. for fear of getting another flood of Armour wheat on the bulges, and pos sibly becaus-o of this sensitiveness there were no marked symptoms of Armour bell ing, anil some open Duymg by mat in tercut at the close. Tho early buvinc was led br Bartlett- Frazlcr and by Spencer for the St. Louis Dull coterie, tepiacing sales or 3'esteruay. There was selllne on the bulges of Re quena. Kneeland. Logan-Eryan and Pea cy. The Southwest sent renewed com plaints of drought damage and buying or ders. A local miller had a hid from Lon don for 5.&X) nick? of flour, the first In a long time, only 7c out of line with the wheat market at yesterday's close. The local ca.sh market was dull po far as millin; oemaud was concerned, and low grades dracglng, hut there wa3 some spec ulative buying; sales altogether, 4a.UW bu. COI5N RECEIPTS DROP. Corn receipts dropped to a lower figure than grain men. who had been expecting arrivals of 1,WJ curs a day this week, looked for. only 233 cars, according to the tstimate represented on the sample ta bu s, and under a fair shipping demand and covei ing Ly dealers who had been un able to llll sales made for shipment from the country by November 20. cash prices recovered l'c. This was an Important influence In the pit. where prices ruled strong, closing near the top at gains of nearly fc for all de liveries, Dec at 49c sellers. May at 437(0 bid.

As thero liad been a great deal of overselling, it was not difficult to put the market up on generally bullish conditions at home and abroad. Though there wa3 still a disposition on the part of many traders to sell, tho offerings were very well ab sorbed and a conslde-ralilc portion of tho previous day's losses was wiped out. Altera good strong opening on higher cables and renewed talk of drought In tho Southwest, thero were occasional recessions, but the market was further strengthened by reports of crop damage in the Argentine, where thero was said to be too much moisture. Thus both rain and lack of rain were used for the benefit of the bulls. Tho Argentine news was believed to have been the main cause for the foreign advances. This raised a. hope that American breadstuffs might be put on an exportable basis and there was a consequent Improvement In the cash demand. A falling eft in receipts here and at other primary points also had a bullish effect. Corn, though dull, was strong. There wa a. scarcity of contract grade, thou;h total receipts were larger than on the corresponding day last year. Dec. wheat opened HBc up and closed l'.s-Sl'ic up. Dec. corn opened So up and closed J4c up. Dec. cats closed !Bc off. Receipts of produce were In fair volume, but there was a good demand and prlcc3 of fruits and vegetables were generally steady. Local securities were dull. United Railways preferred eased off 'and trust company issues were strong. Yesterday's bank clearings were $10,023,150. balances 51.027.K3. Discount rates were steady between 4'i and 6 per cent. Spot cotton was '.4c lower In the local market. WHEAT FUTURES ADVANCE ON BULLISH WEATHER. DROIT; HT IS AGAIN A FEAT URE. Too Much Rain in the Argentine and Scarcity of Contract Grade Help the Buying Side. Wheat values were on tha advance in jesterday'a market. Overselling and gen erally bullish news put an effectual check which sent prices crawfishing toward the dollar mark at the previous session. Thero was not enough rain In the Southwest, and too much In tho Argentine. The re sult was good, strong markets both at home and abroad. Though thera were occasional recessions, all offerings were well tnken. and prices were sharply high er at the close. Dec. wheat opened ?i5gic up. ranged from Jl.OStt to tl.W1,, and closed lHSUic up. Bradstreefs report the available sup ply of wheat cast of the Rockies for the past week at 2,3,000 bu. increase, and stocks in and afloat for Europe In creased 8)0,000 bu., making the world's visible supply increase 2.639,000 bu.. against an increase of 5.51S.00O bu. a week ago. and an increase) of 5,631,000 bu. in 1'ju3. Though total receipts of corn were large thera was not much contract grade In sight, and values were further strength ened by the advance of wheat.
