A Berlin correspondent of the Xe
York Journal of Commerce writes as ro
lows: From all parts of the empii
there come dally reports as to the grov
ing scarcity of meat. Trices have ri:
en and there la abundant evidence I
show that the poorer classes of the pe<
pie have put themselves upon short n
lowances. Reports which have recent
been collected from many of the munlc
pal slaughter houses of the empire sho
a marked falling off in the number <
animals, particularly hogs, brought I
to bo butchered. Thus, at the Berl!
stock yards in the month of Septembe
the deliveries of cattle, sheep and hof
were 3D.114 head behind those of tw
years ago. although the city with its si
burbs has increased by over 100,000 sou
during that time. Of hogs alone the d<
liveries were over 21,000 fewer than tw
years ago. aond nearly 14,000 behlr
those of 1807. The figures for Septen
ber. 181)6, were 83,456; for last mom
they were 6:'.fl07?the falling off beta
thus over 34 per cent
From other parts of Germany the r
ports are of the same character. J
Nuremberg the falling off amounts
over 1.100 head of hogs a month, and i
Oarlsruhe the number of hogs killed \
the city slaughter house during: the fir
six months of the year was only 13.6
head against 16,809 during the first ha
of 1897. At Hamburg the decline is st
more striking, amounting to 2.000 to J
<*w) r*?r week. -At Spanau the falling c
reaches .10 per <*ent In a population

As cattle may still be imported withoi
hindrance from Austria the falling off
the number brought to market has n
been so great as that of hogs. StettJ
however, reports 20 per cent loss th?

Some obvloua effort was required to
sustain prices to-day above the level ot
Saturday and the mid-day rise was not
maintained to the close, prices In some
caJM declining below Saturday's level.
An Inspection of the list will reveal that
outside ot a very few cases net changes
are unimportant. Some observers believe
that auch strength as the market
has. 1? due to the support ot very powerful
aggregations of capital which
are Interested lo seeing higher
prices for net* securities. Quite
a large proportion ot the total business
to-day was In Tobacco, the price of
which was rushed up seven points to
143K. Quite a lot of Federal Steel securities
was dealt In, the preferred stock
rising nearly two points to 75*c. The

which Is the stock exchange phrase for
buying what has not yet come Into existence.
There are to be (200.000,000 of
the Federal Steel itocks. There are to
be 160,000,000 of securities of the new
Continental plug tobacco annex of the
American Tobacco Co. As .these securities
ere In process of flotation the Importance
of sustaining vnlues in the
general market for their benefit is undeniable.
The task of doing this to-day
was not an easy one, and in the late
dealings, with selling of Northern Pacific
on a large scale and talk of fresh
complications in connection with that
road's relations with other roads, the
burden apparently became too heavy
and pretty much nil the earlier gains
were wiped out. Tobacco and Federal
Steel were conspicuous exceptions.
There were other points of strength in
the market during the day, particularly
among the western and southern railroads.
St. Paul's September statement,
showing an increase in net earnings of
$253,331 in spite of large additional outlay
for operating expenses, served to
counteract the effect of Burlington's
poor statement, published Saturday.
There were strong statements also from
Denver & Rio Grande and Chesapeake
& Ohio, while in the Erie statement the
decline in gross earnings was offset by
economics in the operating department,
leaving an increase in the net earnings
of nearly $50,000. But there was no general
public Interest In the market and
some attention was paid to large naval
i and military preparations making in
Great Britain. The weakness in the
wheat market early in the day on the
* big Russian shipments was also an Influence
in the market. The small demand
for money la not regarded as a
' favorable Indication now that there are
1 abundant funds in the market.

CHICAGO?Dealers !n provisions to;
day had a sensation In n squeeze of
shorts In October ribs. Though few in
number the shorts were crowded badly
as eyldenced by an advance of $1 45
above Saturday's closing price. The
llnal figures showed a net advance of
9.1o, January pork, lard and ribs each
advanced 2*?c.
Wheat also closed %c higher on a renewal
of the recent war scare. Corn
advanced Oats left off a shade
higher.
1 The early information about wheat
from foreign sources was quite bearish
and domestic receipts so fur as known
up to tho time of the opening: of the
market here were sufficiently liberal to
be a pood second to the foreign lead. As
u result, the trading In December commenced
very weak and nt figures con- i
slderably below the put price. The i
' market became exceedingly dull after 1
' the preliminary drop, and kept sluggishly
around the opening price for .
over an hour. '
At the end of that time a report was |
circulated that English consuls had de,
cllned ** per cent, and that net the war
j fever raging again. For about twenty |
minutes trade became active and even
; somewhat excited, and the price forge 1
ahead until December showed a ?aln of
l%U\%c over the opening decline. The
advance did not hold, however, ns the
amount of the deellne In Oonsolr. was
somi discovered to have been exaggerated.
The day's statistical Information
i\'a* fairly well divided between bullish
and bearish. Chicago received 329 cars,
compared with 1SI the corresponding
day of last year, while Minneapolis and
Duluth receipts were 1,871 carloads
against 1,451 a week ago and 1.8'?fl cars
n year ago. World's shipments were
8.457.000 and the quantity on ocean passage

Hour to 1,000,000 biiMhels. Liverpool rc
covered nearly all of its early decline
and New York reported fifty boat loads
taken for export, while 00.000 bushels
were "old hore for all rail shipment to
the aeaboard. Thla resulted in renewed
huyliur by HhorlK and the market
wound up within a fraction of the hlffh
point for the day. December opened

to accomplish their ends. Receipts

But for a squeeze In October ribs
provisions tvould have been lifeless and
as It was the flght over the termination
of the rib deal affected so few people
that it did not produce the usual excitement
that attends a corner on the
day of its climax. The longs In the
rib deal were houses with English connection*.
while the shorts were said tin
be a couple of Chicago's most prominent
packers. The result of the matter was
that October ribs that closed Saturday
'at IS SO. made a very- substantial rise of
tl 45 per 100 tbs. and closed with a net
gala of nlnety-flve cents. Private set?MUilnn

The fluctuatlona in lard and January
