STOCKS ARE LANGUID
AFTER THE HOLIDAY.
INTERESTED CONJECTURE
CENTERS IN THE FUTURE.
Iiuk of Ti;litiiess in Money Mar
kef, Generally Present at End
of Year, Is Encouraging.
New Yoik. Dec 27. The Stock Ex
change resumed bus-intsji to-day after
three day.-.' holiday interval, with only a
languid interest and the day's market
was a nominal affair. Thl3 was in ac
cordance with expectation, and the same
state of nffalrs is expected to endure
through the holiday week.
Interested conjecture center almost en
tirely on the future, beyond the current
week.
The tlshtnesB of the money market,
which is usually a feature of the closing
week of the year, is .-ntirely lackins nt
the. present time, and the nuts for time
money to-day wotked appreciably lower.
This condition in the money market is
without doubt partly due to the extreme
ly quiet .speculation In stocks. There
are, besides, some coming requirements
beyond the end of the vear. which prob
ably have to do with the desire to main
tain quiet conditions in the money mar
ket until they are disposed of
Kor one thlnfr the withdrawal of 510.
),"X of Government deposits from the
National Hank on January 13, has to be
provided for. In foreign money centers
the event of chief Importance seems to
be the forthcoming Russian loun, which
Is expected to bo offered In Hcrlln and
I'aris towards the end of January, which
Is expected to delay the easing effect of
the reflux of funds following the annual
settlements. It Is suspected that some of
the largo capital flotations by American
railroads, which are to be iied in funding
large temporary indebtedness, will then
be not far distant.
Except on the hypothesis of future
known demands of some such character. It
is dlllicult to explain the present phenom
enal quietude of the money market. While
the stock market was but little more ac
tive to-day than during the dull session of
last Friday, the tone) was strong. Tills
was In accordance with tin- tenor of the
news, which vas generally favorable to
values. The voice of traffic oflicials, both
ISast and Wesl. was practically In uidson
on the steady expansion of traffic and the
nro-nlse or rather more business than they
will be able to attend to for the winter.
Present car shortages arc wildly com
plained of and the impression Is given
that any further demand for freight room
will exceed prtront capacity. The elab
orate lermlnil projects ot the New York
Central in New York and the report of
heavy outlay by the Pennsylvania in Chi
cago for the some purpose swnoii to be
Impressive to sentiment as evidence of the
great confidence in the railroad world of
the permanence of prosperous conditions
The rising tendency of steel products was
still perceptible.
The effectual breaking of the drought In
Penn.-.ylvaritt was a helpful ractor. The
crippling of the who service l.v the storm
aggravated the dullness or business. The
day's ndvnnces were held well until the
closing, which uas dull and firm, liondg
were firm. Total -i!es. nar value xt 4tn rvai
United States bonds were unchanged on
call.

Chicago. Dec. 27. A eclj wave of un
usual radius was the chief cau-e of a
strong wheat maiket to-day. May de
livery advanced 2'.4c and closed at the
highest point reached, c'orn is up '.ilf'ic
O.its and provisions are unchanged.
Inspiied Ii) a good ditnand. wheat
opened strong with May up Vii'.-jC to
tV at $l.l'4 to 51.121,. The weather
map exhiblitd extrernt- cold weather, as
prevailing in the Noithwest and rapidly
apreading across the whole country. The
cold wave made the probability of re
duced deliveries of wheat by faimeis
much mon; certain than bad been pre
viously apparent.
Another factor influential in producing
a. bulge was a cablegram from a Chicago
ciop expert in Argentina. Tim cablegiam
staled that mui h of the win at ciop in
Argentina had been ripened pit-maturely
by frost.
t'rom the first tup of the bell a lively
i'lutind was in evidence from commis
sion houses, but sellers were few. In cou
viucncc, lb- maiket steadily gained la
strength, notwithstanding n-poils Indicat
ing the long drouth ill the wintt r wheat
tcrritoty had been broken by rain or
snow.
Demand for cash wheat, both in the
Niirtliwe.t and Sot:thwct. was gieally
Improved ami this helped lo create a
more l.'lll.'sh scntini'nt in i-peculntive fad
ing. Primary icceipts also were mucli
smaller than "for the corre-ponding day u
ytar ago. but owing lo w re trouble theso
sliuistics ivt-r.' Inrcmplcle. During the
latter part of the session a leader of the
bull crowd was a free seller. The in
creased offerings found ready buyers,
however, ami prices continued to mount.
Tlit maiket t-losetl at ihe hlghf.-i point
of the session, linal uolatlons on May be
ing at Jl.lluiI.lcV The amount on pass
age decreased nil.ouo bu. Primary receipts
(:ncompiele were ."iDii'id bu.. compared
with 1.2ti:s.:.io0 bu. a ;.ear ago.
CORN.
Inlluenccd by the strength of wheat the
coin market held lirm throughout the en
tire sr.-sion. A cold wave, which is ex
pected to decrease the movement from the
farms and also 10 increase the con-sumption
of corn, wtts a factor of perhaps
canal importance in giving firmness to tne
market. May opened unchanged to 'n
higher at l-eUc to 4.1-iC and held within
the opening range, the. close being at AV-'U
K.iC. Local receipts were 1.015 cars (J
days), with 10 of contract grade.
OATS.
The oats market influenced by strength
in other grains, and by tin- anticipated In
creased consumption thai would result
from y.i;ro wealher. The volume of busi
ness continued very light. May opened
unchanged at 31c sold between 21i2c and

SUMMARYOFST.LOUIS MARKETS
All condltlonii weie bullish In the fe-rahi m-irkct. The hoavy storm, following so
closely on the ante-holiday liquidation, proved too mm ii of a combination for tha
bears und buying van the order of the day throughout Ua- session. All of those who
had gone short Jr. the last Wero anxious to cover. There was pr.i'tlcally no news be
cause of hampend wire service. While th'- statistics on the visible supply were not
posted, it was estimated that there had been an irureise of about l.MSo,M) bu., but
thia was onset by the prospect that Imd v atln-r would cbe(k tho movement to mar
ket during tlio rtirrent week. Local receipts wero light and the cash market wan very
strong. tijiecuL-tive offerings were small, the tidy selling noted ttlng by longs, who
sold to break tho market, with the hope of getting In at lower figures. Toward the
end of tho session there w-s an especially good demand for the May option. This
came mainly from the sharts. In the last hour buying was very brisk and closing
prices were sharply higher.
Corn also was strong on light receipts and prospects of further interference with
the movement to market. While the volume of tradius was not large, tin re was a
good buying detnaud throughout the session.

May corn opt tied ihc up and closeil Siy'vc up.
