[Associated Press]
NEW YORK, Jan. 3.—An attempt
was made to start the new year with
an advance in prices of stocks as a
demonstration of cheerful confidence
in the opening prospect. Immediate
ly, however, the higher price encoun
tered selling orders sufficient to turn
them downwards. *•
The rate for call loans had risen, ear
ly in the day higher than was touched
during the whole of last year, and in
fact the year before, which' ran into
the- after-panic depression following
the disappearance of the money strin
gency In January of 1903. The highest
call 'loan rate in that month was »
per ont, compared wtih today's 14 per
cent.
The bank statement published after
the close of the stock market Friday
made clear the reason for the con
striction of supplies in today's money
market. The surplus reserve was de
pleted to a slender remnant, while the
huge money settlements are still to
be provided for in large part. Reduc
-tion of loans by the clearing house in
stitutions was thus made imperative.
The great private banking houses
most largely concerned with the finan
cial operations of the principal rail
road and Industrial corporations of the.
country have given such evidence of
abundant cash resources in the. recent
past as to imply ample ability to re
lieve a flurry in the money market.
Absence of such relief today brought
an Inference that higher rates lor
their money is more desired by these
powerful sources than higher prices
for stocks.
Magnates See President
In other directions the speculation
saw discouragement. Railroad presi
dents were in consultation with Pres
ident TaXfc to voice their opposition to
his proposed recommendations for ex
tending the powers of the interstate
commerce commission over the rail
roads.
An effect was produced by reports
of differences ■ between the United
States Steel corporation and some of
its employes, and the sentimental in
fluence of the support weakness of
United States Steel on the whole list
was considerable.
The large attention In the annual
summing up of conditions by the
great authorities in economics to the
high cost of living gave added force
to the wage question. The support
weakness of United States SteeL
Reading and Union Pacific contrasted
with the resistance shown by Rock
Island, Chesapeake & Ohio and Amal
gamated Copper pointed to a dlverg
rnce of sentiment in the speculative
forces, but the forces of reaction
proved predominant and the weakness
became quite acute with,the final flur
ry in call money.
Bonds were heavy. Total sales at
par value amounted to $3,965,000. i.'nit
ed States 2s declined i per cent on
call.

Special service to The Herald by J. C. Wil

York Stock exchange, and San Francisco Bond

Los Angeles.
CHICAGO, Jan. —Demand for cash wheat
was the all-important but not the only feature
of strength in the wheat market today. Ar
gentine' crop, market and statistical news
has been bullish, weekly statistics were main
ly bullish, and the extreme cold weather pre
vailing northwest Is expected to again crip
ple and delay movement of wheat to market.
Small accumulation of wheat and expectation
of demand from the unusual sources In the j
next thirty or sixty days were among the :
bull cards today, and the buying which ad
vanced the price was mainly done by the heavy
local speculative traders.
The corn market showed a firm tone, partly
due to the strength of wheat, partly to every
Indication, Including official forecast, and re
turn of very severe weather which is likely
to again cripple the rail movement. Al
though it Is generally believed that there are
a large number of cars on sidetracks, the cash
v.as ii to %c higher. A leading shipping con
cern reported that the country Is selling very
light despite stiff bids put out from here.
Oats were fairly strong, but trade light.
Corn traders and a few local longs scold on
an early swell causing a brief reaction, but
the market rallied later, ranging higher. Cash
oats in sample market were steady to %c
higher. ...
Provisions higher on light run of hogs which
«raa unexpected following the recent mild
weather. There were very lisht deliveries on
January contracts, and shippers were disap
pointed because of the small deliveries In
lard. Last week's hogs here averaged litest
la weight of any week since last April.
