Tho rally thcro, like the early rally here yesterday. v,ti9 reported to rxi due to profit-taking by fJiorts and a lull In the loc-U and Continental selling. The market hero opened up flnn and advanced 12 to It points, with tho whole list going- up to nl-out tho high point reached in yester day's rally. This improvement, however, was checked by fresh local and Southern felling, and tile market suhiequeiitly leaded and lost all tho advance 011 a continuation of this rclllnjr. There wu.i plenty of news from the South, to the effect that holders arc flrniT In their idea's and arc refusing to racrinco their cotton, and already mass meetings of farmers are being called to enter into nn agreement not to sll. Such mass meetings ar; being arranged for In many places In Texas, to lake place on December 17. The bullish effect of this news and gos sip on tho market was, however, com pletely offset by the reports ot demoraliza tion In tho yarn and cloth market?. Iho market wan tlcidier in the late trading and rallied again about 10 points ycr yesterday's clnslns prices. Covering of shorts and some buying for a turn, on the theory that there are now too many bears and all tho boar new? on the crop Is out and that prices ought to have at least nome tumporary rally, were the features. Spot cotton was steady litre and un changed at S?. and New Orleans reported .1 llrmer market there, -with prices about 1-1 lugher than yeaterday. The market closed steady. MORE CONFIDENCE SHOW:.. REPUBLIC SPECIAL. New Orleans, Dec. 7. In its summary of the cotton situation, the Times-Democrat will say to-morrow: Yesterday's cotton market was good enough, the reaction being sufficiently im portant to instill a bit ot confidence where confidence is now most needed. Mill men are not yet satisfied that safety for them lies in loadlns up. for the strength of the resistance has not been fully tested, but tho demand from this source is. neverthe less, greater than the volume of offerings. Just so soon as the fitful levers subt-ide and confidence in the price Is re-established on the new basis the talent gener ally will look for a flood of investment buying, which cannot fail to put some sub stantial starch In the stand the country as a whole has taken. "Jlcanwhilo tho fact that many short accounts havo been liquidated under the expectation of a reaction should not be forgotten, and It would also be well for tho bulls to remember that the beam are not goin? to surrender without a light anv of tho ground they havo won. Were It not for the remnant ot the short Interest in tho absence of direct bullish support, the bear leader and his stronger followers would be in a position to do with the mar ket pretty much as they pleased. Once this weak following is out of the way, strenuous hammering will probably start in again. Then will be tho time when frienda must show the kind of stuff theb aic made of. "Just now the country is feeling some what better. The absence of anxiety to sell has most certainly Improved the sit uation to a material degree and has made the consumer considerably more eager In his demands for the actual stuff. A week of this sort of thins will start the trend of events tho farmers' way. Yesterday's improvements, however, cannot be accept ed by thinking men as the result of a permanent influence, but rather of the monetary nervousness of snorts and of consumers, for underlying strength is yet to be established before confidence will be restored."

PERSONAL IN TERVIEWS AND CORRESPONDENCE INVITED. LETTERS OF CREDIT ISSUED. 3 INTEREST PAID ON TIME DEPOSITS. SUMMARYOFST. Heavy local deliver!'.-? of Dec. wheat, easy cable?, favorable crop news from the Argentine and liquidation by big professionals were depressing factors in yester eiayi local jrraln market. The Armour contingent in Chicago were said tohe on the bcllinfi- side and the break in that market had considerable effect here. There was also a sympathetic movement in line with the decline of New York stocks. Sen timent everywhere sti-med lo be bearish anil there was no outside speculative in terest on the buying side. Just why grain should slump on a drop in the price, of granger stocks was not clear to many traders, but few oi-trators cared to add to their holdings, in view of the selling by Armour and the delivery of 1.( bu. of Dec. wheat on local contracts. It was haid that this wheat was delivered because it could not be sold at a profit to millers. This indicates a further falling off in the cash demand. There were vigorous denials of damage reports from the Argentine. Weather conditions in the winter belt were generally favorable. Though local re ceipts were moderate, the amount on hand here was more than sufficient to meet the cash demand. Large receipts and good weather were bearish indications in corn. The mar ket was dull, with little outside support, and the active options were weak at the close. ' May wheat opened Sj'&Hc off and closed SitjSHc off. May corn opened He off and closed jc off. May oats closed vie off. Receipts of produce v.-cro moderate and prices of fruits and vegetables were -en-erally steady. " Local securities were in fair demand. A ississlppi Valley was the strong spot. Tcstcrdays bank clearings were $10,119,047. balances J1.161.20O. Discount rates were steady between 4tj and 15 per cent. Spot cotton was steady in the local market. WHEAT FUTURES WEAKENED UNDER SELLING PRESSURE AKGENTIXE XEWS'IS VERY BEARISH. .Corn Is Dull and Weak on Good Receipts and Favorable Weath er Conditions: Wheat values closed sharply lower in yesterday's market. Though local re ceipts were light, there was practically no outside buying interest and the cash de mand showed no Improvement. Ileport3 from the Argentine indicated tliat recent rumors as to rust had been overdrawn and this assurance caused a break in for eign markets. Armour was said to bo a heavy seller In Chicago and trading scnll men was generally bearish. The break in stocks was a depressing factor. May wheat opened i3JsC off, ranged from L11H to 1.13!2 and closed at n.llH bid. Corn was weak and dull. Receipts were fairly largo and weather conditions were favorable.
