New Trading all But Ceases. Total Business Only 57,300 Shares New York, November 24.—New trad ing all but ceased on the stock ex change today. It is necessary to go back 25 years to find a duller mar ket than today. Most of the time the ticker was silent. Not one of the favorite stocks moved up or down as much as a point. When tlu* five dreary hours of trad ing had come to an end it was fount tiiat the* total business was only ,57, 300 shares. There has not been a day as dull since the blizzard of 1888 when trad ing on the exchange was practically tumbled over by a mad race to get away. On March 12 the total was 15, 388. The best that could be said of to day's trade was that the undertone was film. At the start there was some irregularity with evidences of re newed heaviness among the metal stocks, but the small early losses were soon recovered and in most cases the leaders made fractional enhancements. Holders of long stock derived some encouragement from the market’s firm undertone in the face of discouraging news. A good deal of emphasis was placed on the two weeks’ report of railroad traffic which showed a large increase in idle freight cars. Nows from the steel and copper trade was pessimistic. It was reported that some sales of new copper had been made at 14%. Apathy in the stock trade was re flected in part by falling off demand for money needs. An easier tone de veloped In tlie call money market and commercial paper rates were off some what. The gold movement to Canada waa continued which is probably not at an end and the absolutely necessary prep aration for December interest and div idend payments may affect loaning rates temporarily but the outlook is strongly for easier money. Bonds developed an easier tendency, t Total sales, par value, $815,000. United States bonds were on call unchanged. , Bonds I . S. ref. 2s. registered . }»7 U. S. ref. 2s. coupon . 97 I .

Fresh buying for long Bit cunt was not much in evidence, but there was a steady demand from the short side and the ring found it diffi cult to meet the inquiry. - Tile opening was steady at a decline of 7 to 12 points on poor cables and a prl vate bureau crop estimate of over 15,uoo, fy hales. Around the call there was rather heavy short selling, but Imme diately after It let up. so that first prices were about the lowest of the day. The decline was gradually recovered until at noon the most active months were 1 point over last week's close. In the aft ernoon buying increased and the advance was widened to 7 to 9 points. The close was steady at a net gain for the day of 1 to 9 points on the trading months. Weather conditions were most favorable and reports from the belt showed good headway being made with picking and ginning. This led to bearish predictions regarding the amount of cotton being turned out in this ginning period. There were also rumors during the day of an important private crop estimate to come of 15,400,000 bales. These reports did not lead to much of any fresh short selling and bulls claimed that the trading of last week had resulted in an oversold market. New Orleans Cotton Futures _ Open, illgh. Low. Cl.Bd.

The total is no .v only 500,00*) bushels more than last year .s total. It was ale » printed out that ihe Canadian visible had fallen away and h id become smaller then last year’s available store. Excessive moisture in Argentina where, harvesting is in progress gave wheat, bulls the advantage from the start It was 3aid the yield was disappointing and tnat black rust was on the spread. Sales of haul winter grades hero to exporters tended also to discourage attempts in the direction of forcing a downturn. Rumors were current too that millers were lib eral purchasers. Corn ranged lower on account of larger prospective receipts here. Pine weather was predicted and advices from Missouri river centefs told of free marketing by farmers. Cats suffered owing to ie ports of heavy Canadian shipments on the way to Ch cr.go. Trading was of scanty volume. Persistent buying on the par: of hading packers aided the provisions trad?.

IRREGULARITY IN COTTON MARKET Conflicting Estimates of the Crop Made—Offering Well Absorbed New York, November 24.-—CopfUetlng estimates of the crop seemed the cause of considerable irregularity In the cotton market today. An early break followed reports that a statistician formerly con nected with the department of agriculture estimated the crop at 15,200,00) bales, and the reports that a Shreveport expert had increased his estimate from 13,850,000 to 14.310.000 bales. Offerings were pretty well absorbed, however, and the market rallied on the publication of more bullish estimates, and continued reports from the soyth that picking and ginning were much more nearly completed than during the average season. The close was steady at a net decline of G points on November and De cember, but generally 2 to 0 points higher. There was considerable trade buying on the afternoon advance, which was said to be partly for New England account. The market opened steady at a decline of 4 to G points and prices sold about 10 to 12 points net lower during the morning, under liquidation, foreign straddle sell ing, local and southern pressure. Tho larger estimates of the crop, combined with the bearish interpretation of tho last ginning figures, appeared to be mak ing a considerable impression on senti ment. Most of the buying* on the early decline was attributed to covering of shorts, but offerings were gradually ab sorbed and the market firmed during the afternoon, with the advance encouraged by the failure of southern offerings to in crease sufficiently to suggest any weak ening of the interior spot situation. The members of the Savannah coton exchange estimate the commercial crop at 14.209.000 bales, including linters, and the members of the Augusta exchange esti mate the yield at 14,285,000 bales. A Memphis authority estimated 13,747, 000 bales, excluding linters, und t Chicago firm issued a preliminary estimate of 13, 900.000 hales, including linters. New York Cotton Futures Open. High. Low.

Mor ris avenue merchants report that busi ness is so good that they are having difficulty in filling all the orders that are coming in. Turkeys, geese, ducks, hens, cranberries, nuts of every de scription, celery, lettuce and all that goes with a correct Thanksgiving din ner are to be had in abundance. Ev erything seems to be on the market and everything 1h in demand. Poultry dealers say that turkeys are more in demand than they were last week and it is believed that the pres ent supply will be exhausted unless there is an unforeseen slump in the demand*. The price on turkeys is only 22 cents a pound and some can be had for 18 cents. Eggs are in great de mand and the price of 28 to 34 cents, seemingly has no effect oji the de- I mand. • In the produce division the dealers arc hard pressed to fill orders^ It seems ; that everybody was waiting until Mon- j day to send in their orders, for the ! business last week was only fair. Yes- j terday, however, the merchants were j working hard, sending out cases and grosses of cranberries, bushels of nuts, crates of celery, crates of oranges and barrels of apples to every section of Birmingham. Not a few out-of-town customers were served via express. In the fish market the demand is getting better. Oysters and Spanish mackerel were in great demand yes terday. The price is stationary and tile supply plentiful. -...

Hubbard Bros. & Co.’s Letter New York, November 24.—(Special.) Another sharp decline at the opening and during the early hours followed by a rally later shows the trade freely selling at these prices may not he made with impunity. The opening was weak on selling by the south reaching stop orders, coupled with short sales on trade and crop advices, both pro fessional and Wall street. A large crop estimate, 15,200,000, had minor in fluence. but the resistance was feeble I till the lower prices attracted buyers ; and profit taking. The raljy was to be j expected as the demand below 13 cents 1 asserts itself on any decline. A large i proportion of the crop Is reported picked and it is claimed that this will be shown in later official figures. Liv- 1 erpool should be 4 points better.
