MARKET IS SLUGGISH
WITH WEAKER TREND Action Is Largely Ascribed to Chicago Rumors. Corn Eases Off, Then Rallies?Reduced Ar? gentine Crop Estimates. New- Vork, February ?Domestic wheat markets were dull early In the week. Prices fluctuated Irregularly, but traders were inclined to hold aloof und await developments. The uncer? tainty as to intentions of the bull lead? ers in Chicago was an ' tnlluencc. and their failure to support May contracts tu the Chicago market was a source ol perplexity. The price difference be? tween May in New York and Chicago Widened to 5 ."-4 cents, against 3 T>-S cents a week or more ago. which led tonic traders to think Hum the deal had come t" an abrupt end Other deal? ers were skeptical . of this, as they thought professionals who were en? gineering the deal were too strong financially to give up now; Operators vi such large calibre do not generally abandon a dc;,i of such magnitude so abruptly, especially when apparently i nothing has developed to uliaoge tho situation or i?< weaken their hands. The position is seemingly .tust as fnv orublt for them now as it was at the outset. Our export trade has been dis? appointing, but this was offset by the reduced estimates as to ?he surplus in Argentina, now- placed y 1,out'.eon bushels, against 00,000,000 t<> i 00.000, ooa bushels previously, and by the con? tinued unfavorable wcatlu i in wlntei wheat territory, and especially in tho Southwest, where the plant' has suf fered owing to prolonged drought; and alternate thawingaand freezing In view of all the facts descitbed, It is small wonder that the general spec? ulative crowd felt compelled to move cautiously. A slight decline early in the week was partly attributed to dis? couraging cables. European markets being influenced by the unexpectedly large world's shipments and the re? sultant big increases in the, quantity on passage. Furthermore, there' were continued offerings of cheap wheat for forward shipment from India. Russia, .Australia and Argentina. The depres eion in domestic markets, portly in sympathy with a sharp break In Win? nipeg, where prices fell suddenly, sug? gesting free liquidation by tired and discouraged traders w ho had overload- i ed, anticipating a big rise in case the I import duty was greatly reduced or ' abolished. Evidently they discovered that they had been over-hasty In as? suming that such a radical change <">f policy could be brought about sc soon Afterwards tlure was more steadiness und a full recovery ensued, as small sellers for the decline were inclined to cover, prompted by the fairly large reduction in the world's available sup? ply, the big increase lh Liverpool stocks, and the big falling off In tho receipts at primary points and es? pecially In the Northwest, where they wore more than 50 per cent, loss than a year ago. So t;rc?< >t'hutiBo In i*rleek< l.atf In the week there was no radical change In the general position, although there was a further gradual sinking to lower levels. Nevertheless, there were numerous rallies, and I hence the net changes were rather un? important. As a mutter of fai t, there was almost nothing in the market 'news or statistics to justify wide II net tia t ions. The downward trend was checked temporarily by continued light primary receipts, und ospeciuljj in the Northwest, und partly by rather encouraging cables, Kuropcan markets being influenced t>> the smaller ox ports from Argentina than expected, but this was partly offset by the large increase In the \i.-H>!e supply in that country and the continued free offer? ings of cheap wheat f>>r forward ship? ment from India. Kussia, and Argen? tina. Drought is still Complained of III sollte parts of the Southwest, and rain, or, better still, a heavy snowfall, would be highly welcome. In other [?arts of winter wheat territory, con? ditions are considered fairly satisfac? tory. The general depression was at [ tributed partly to the indifference ] shown by exporters, the duluess th | the milling trade, and the numerous vague rumors respect inn selling bj ; Chicago bouses supposed ic represent' the big bull party. Small juice changes occurred in the corn market during the week. In fact, the situation is almost identically lite fame as noted ti week a go. Apparently every time May contracts iii Chicago broke to fit) cents prominent houses be? gan to buy, and consequently the price rarely remained long below that ligurc. notwithstanding fairly large primary receipts early in the week. During tie late trading there was more steadiness and a small recovery ensued, which was ascribed to reports of lighter de? liveries by farmers at country sta? tions and to the marked falling off lit the arrivals at the chief centres. Mean? while export demand lias been fair, and the clearances for the week were unusually heavy. The late strength w;,s al?o partly attributed to encourag? ing; cables, LIurnpcun markets being Influenced by limited shipments from Argentina, and by continued unfavor? able crop reports from that country, where continued drought and extreme heat have caused further deterioration, and hence estimates as to the probable | exportable surplus have been again reduced, the latest authentic report i making it only 21,300,000 bushels,] against 103.70S.00O bushels exported in j the past season. Naturally, therefore.] it is the general assumption that utir ! exports during the current year will j show- material enlargement. The ox- I Ports during January w ere approxl- ! niately S.100,000 bushels, against f..- j 700.000 bushels during January, 1910. j MARKET DEADLOCK HAS BEEN BROKEN Decision of Old Bull Interests to Retire Cause of Heavy Liquidation Both in This Country and in England. New York, February ?The dead? lock which has prevailed in the cot? ton market for the last month was bro? ke!', suddenly Frldhy by the develop nicht of heavy liquidation. This oc? curred simultaneously here and at Liv? erpool. It Seeths lb be the result of tlie decision of some of the old bull j interests to retire from the market. ! temporarily at least, after having worked persistently on the bull side since last summer. It Is believed the sudden falling off in business with India and China at Manchester, cutis Ine spinhers there to practically with? draw from Liverpool and Southern spot markets as further buyers, influ? enced this decision. . The progress? pi the plague in Cltimt. vauslng dr.y. g^yds fnerchants there and yarn spinners to ?either cancel or hold up orders previously placed with Enjg- 1 lish manufacturers, together with. the fall of a penny per ounce in the price : of bar silver, affecting new business , with India, seems to have alarmed, for the tittie being, the trade at Manchester and Liverpool. After having stocked up somewhat too heavily in anticipat? ing their requirements for the season. bo as to l>c protected against .1 pos? sible repetition of the 10 and ifl-Conl bull campaigns put through by (he bull cliques here last summer, many are t ow trying to hedge, while recent over enthusiastic bullish traders ate liqui? dating.

February 5.?The j loose Committee on th? regula? tion f the liquor trait'to has an? nounced a llnal and full hearing on th? Ivel I Urn bill for local option privilege in New Hanover county, and the city of Wilmington for Wednesday of this week, beginning at .1 o'clock. Ther? was aii informal discussion of the bit! at a committee conference Fri? day, during which L. B. Rogers, op? posing the Kellum bill, read a telegram from 3d. 1*. Pearsall, wholesale mer? chant of Wilmington, declaring his willingness to pay $1.000 to any State ? ?harity if Representative Kellum could prove his proposition that he repre? sents generally the best people of Wil? mington or a majority of the whole people of the city. Furthermore, that he voted for Kellum In the last elec? tion, not knowing his stood on the matter now up. In a cross-tire discus? sion between Itcpresen ta ti ve Kellum 1.. 15. Rogers, the latter contended, as heretofore, that the recorder's court is openly Jailing to make any effort to enforce the prohibition law, and .Mr. Kellum that Mayor MacRue has made little or no attempt In that direction W. C. Peterson and W. W. Koch were present with Mr. Rogers to protest against the Kellum bill. Mr. Koch in? sisting that if the local option ques? tion were loft with the people of Wil-1 mington the liquor forces of the. couti- j try would put $100.000 or more into j Wilmington to buy the election. Mr. Kellum suspected that the pro? hibition forces would lend the liquoi j people a close race in this direction Mr. Peterson believed that the passage of the Kellum bill would mean the most disastrous trouble for Wilming? ton, even if the people of the city re? pudiate tlie Kellum bill; that the city heeds and must have quiet and ia\v enforcement. Prominent legislators here regard the whole furore over this bill as misplaced entirely, for the reason, as they insist that there is not tin- slightest chance for ti.e lull to receive any considerable support in either branch of the Assent I biy. I The most unique committee hearing before any Legislature In recent years; was that before the Senate Judiciary , Committee to consider the Cobb bill to change the name of the Croetah Indians, in Robcsoii county, to "Cheto ' kee Indian.- of Robcson." A big del c gat ion of Croetans, backed up by prominent citizens of Kobeson, were Iki-c lighting fed the bill, and Chief. Welsh and Assistant Chief Sounook. of tin- < :heroke< Tribe of Western North Carolina, were here to tight any invasion of theti name, to ssiy nothing ol their entitlements thereunder to the fostering care of the government. W'th them was Superintendent Frank Ky selka, of the Indian School at Cherokee, the three forming the inner council or I the tribe. Fighting for them and I against changing Croetans to Chero* I kees were numbers of members of tho Legislature from Western counties I They, had nothing against Croetans. j but lougiit the claim that they have uhy right to the name Cherokee.

At the end of last week, the trade was still very uncertain over the situa? tion in Europe In general, and In the Liverpool market In particular. t'on tinentat mills were credited with hav? ing chocked the decline in Liverpool by buying large quantities of spot cot? ton. The bubonic plague in the Far Fast lias been given rather a prominent ?place among the features of the mar? ket because, should health conditions there become worse they would af? fect Manchester's business in cotton cloths. For this reason news from the Fast will be eagerly looked for and one way or the other will be used with effect. To soni" extent the long interest was liquidated last week, but there still remains a large speculative long interest in the market which bears are ; generally supposed to be working to I dislodge. If further liquidation is forced It will cause lower prices on the old crops and because of the danger of It the market letters from commis? sion houses that will lie read Monday morning- will quite generally iidi'lso outside traders to let the old crop months severely alone until conditions I are more settled and In the meantime turn their attention to the new crops.

OOETHALS WANTS 10 FORM GAMAL Believes He Can Do Work With His Force and Save Gov? ernment Money. [Special to The Times-Dispa teh. 1 New York. February 5.?-Colonel Geu. \V; Ct?ctlials, who arrived yesterday on tin.- steamship Colon, from Pansiniu, on rotiit for Washington in response to a cable fiom the Secretary of War, said that his visit to the capital is to report to the Appropriations Commit: tee regarding the fortifications of the canal. "Now that we have spent so much money on the canal there is Only brio thing to do. und that is to fortify It," said the c donel as the steamship came up from quarantine. "It would be a mistake to leave it unprotected, and it would also be a mistake to use tho navy to defend it. "In time of war the navy is sup? posed to take tho aggressive and seek <> I*. the enemy and destroy it as soon as possible, and the use of the navy for defending territory that can be well defended bv land fortifications would be wrong. "We should build batteries alone the scacoust and provide sufficient means for defense of the locks, so t i; 11 tiny land force could be prevented from harming them. The Secretary uf Wae asked tue to come to Wash? ing ion at once, so I caught the tlrsl boat anil shall be in Washington on Monday." Colonel Goethuls said that although the canal would be open officially on January 1. 1915; it would be possible lor boats to pass through as soon as tl.a contractors complete the locks, which nrobnbly will be in July. 1913. Wiiei* it is decided to begin the work of fortification, the colonel says be wr.nts to do the job. "The estimates wore nil prepared Uy ihc Board of Fortifications," he continued, ?'but I have got an organi? sation on the Isthmus that can handle the whole thing and save the govern? ment expense." Regarding the landslides that havo caused so much trouble at the Cule bra cut, Colonel Goethnls said this work would be the experimental lea- , tore of the canal rather than the Ob- i tun ilnm. He says the landslides do 1 not o.iuse much alarm, and that it is I just a question of waiting until the j ehrtli finds Its natural slope befot'o the slides cease. "Wo estimated that there would bo about 6,000,000 cubic yards of earth thai would slide, and we calculate that there are still 5,000,000 cubic yards to come," the colonel added. "The last slide caused a tremor of excitement because the gardens adjoining a few houses were swept away, and when tin- owners aw?ke they found that their gardens were some thirty or thirty-live feet lower." I.a.st year U.Ooo.OOO pounds of dyna? mite was used for blasting, and the explosive is received on the Isthmus In 3,000-tbn shipments. Colonel Goe thals said that it required the utmost ' vigilance on the part of the police to keep track of the; dynamite. . as the laborers steal it and sell It to llsher men. The isthmus has its four hundred, he said, and a man's position in society is dt termlncd more or less by the wages he earns, the house he lives in. the food he eats anil the quality of his furniture, All these details, however, form toples of conversation between the wives, who havo little else to ihinl: of "liven suffrage, has at last Invaded the Canal Zone-. Miss II.-leu Roswoll who organized the Woman's Club, al? ready has given a number of lectures and promises a good deal more In the line of suffrage." The force of 30,000 men at nrcsent employed on the canal will not be re? duced until 1913, when the concrete work Is finished, he said. II lacket it nr> Tobneco. Market.
