{Associated Press]
NEW YORK. Dec. «.—Heavy selling
of United States Steel shares based
upon rumors (which were officially de
nied after the close of trading) that
the company would soon announce a
partial shutdown at some of Its plants
j because of the poor business outlook
I caused a general unsettlement of prices
In today's stock market. The move
ment was of fairly large proportions
and in numerous Instances brought
; stocks down to the lowest level record
In some weeks.
The movement be^an ln the after
noon, some time after the publication
of the president's message, which was
;in no sense a factor. Indeed, conser
vative Wall street seemed disposed to
I extract much comfort from the pres
' Jdent's recommendations, particularly
'"his plea that no legislation dealing
•with regulation or control of corpora
tions be enacted pending further test
' of existing laws.
His efforts at Increased economy ln
J the conduct of governmental affairs
came In for much favorable comment.
During the early part of the stock
market session the Gould group dis
played a renewal of last week's heav
'"4ri6SS
St. Louis and Southwestern common
and preferred were heavy, and it was
a matter of board room gossip that the
'■ dividend on the preferred stocks
knight be reduced if not entirely sus
pended. The weakness in this Issue
'had a sympathetic effect on Missouri
Pacific and Denver & Rio Grande pre
ferred, but the slump as a whole at
tracted little attention, inasmuch as
• the demand for these Issues of recent
years has been extremely limited.
London was reported to have sold
16,000 to 20,000 shares here.
The further decline in consols to a
new level seems to have cast a gloom
■ ever speculative circles at the British
metropolis.
Demand for money was light today,
but rates showed Increased firmness.
No additional shipments of currency
■were reported, but It Is believed that
further advances to Canada and the
'pacific coast will have to be made.
The bond market was easy, with to
tal sales (par value) $2,210,000.
United States 3s and 4s, registered,
advanced V* per cent on call.

NEW YORK COTTON
Special aervlce to The Herald by J. C. Wll
eon. 212 West Fifth atreet. Los Angelea
NEW YORK, Dec. 6.—Lack of eupport and
some commission house selling caused cotton
to ease off during today's session, but the
volume of business was limited. Liverpool
changes were unimportant. A prominent bull
issued a report that 93% per cent of th* crop
has ixyn ginned to December 1, 1910. The
National Glnners' association estimates the
amount of cotton ginned to December 1 at
10.020,000 bales, and the total crop 11.128,000
bales. The Mercantile Cotton Crop Reporting
corporation states that replies from 1197 cor
respondents indicate a yield of 10,837,000 bales.
In view of the fact that trade conditions
abroad are considered fairly good, and as it
is probably true that American spinners are
awaiting the government's figures before mak
ing commitments of a largo scale. It la not
improbable that If the government figures ar*
under 12,000,000 bale* of the crop the trad* aa
a whole will not conalder these prices too
high. The glnnera' report by the government
Is due at 10 o'clock Thursday, and the final
report by the government, giving number of
bales (600 pounds), Is due at. 2 o'clock Friday.

CHICAGO GRAIN
Special service to The Herald by J. C. Wil
son. member of the Chicago board of trade-
New York stock exchange and San n£ "™
bond and atoek exchange, Sl2 Weat Fifth
street, Loa Angeles.
CHICAGO. Deo. 6.-Wheat was lower' «■*£.
higher later, large Interests, including local
professional speculators of the heavier type,
scalping from the buying aide, and statlsuca
largely bullish were the main legitimate fea
tures today. Meanwhile, however, there were
a great many rumors in circulation regarding
cash wheat sales, but It has been Impossible
to verify them. There were actual wlw late
yesterday and not previously reported of 60,wu
bushels to an outside mill. Actual sales today
were found of 16,000 bushels. Claims of 250,000
bushels sold to a large Minneapolis miller with
branches at Buffalo and Louisville were denied
by the reported seller. It has been claimed
also that a leading harvester concern bos re
porte from Its Argentine force that the wheat
crop la no larger than last year. European
prlcea were all lower today. More anow aouth
weat. The government report la due at noon
tomorrow, Chicago time.
Corn waa weak from the etart. Heavy ealea
from the country late yesterday were further
supplemented, but on a smaller scale today,
but thero waa no improvement In the cash
demand. Cash corn finished about lo lower.
Recent bulge shut off export trade, but a de
cline la expected to revive It.
Oata were es weak as corn. The short In
terest haa been eliminated by recent bulgee,
which In turn brought a large Increase in
sales from the country. There was consider
able selling of May oats today by elevator peo
ple and some of the cash concerna, as well as
by one of the larger and most successful spec
ulator.
Provisions were easy. One of the packers
who bought heavily and helped to frighten
shorts to cover sold very freely through com
mission houses and brokers today. Local shorts
among pit traders were the best buyers. Llv*
hog market was Arm.
