At the start tlie bulls had Slightly the advantage, but they were decidedly at a disadvantage when the session was out. An effort was made at the opening to boom prices on dry weather reports from the winter wheat belt, showers for that section, which were predicted yes terday, not materializing. In addition to this the sensational dispatches in regard to the Venezue'»n question appearing in some of the morning papers rather tending to make shorts uneasy. The demand was not of the kind that sustains, however, and be fore many minutes had passed a decline set in which was only stopped by puts. The belief wasted that the visible supply would show almost 3.000,000 bushels increase for this week. That tended to the increase the weakness as did also a large estimate for Monday's receipts—508 cars. December opened 60% to 604fee, declined to 60c, closing at 60@60Vfec, Wi>%c under yesterday. Cash wheat was easy and Vfec par bushel lower. Corn—Activity was unknown in corn to day. The situation was practically the same as it has been for weeks, prices vary - ing but little and the trades finding but scant encouragement to do business. The ups and downs of wheat defined the course of prices, but fluctuations were slow and narrow. May corn opened at ED** and closed at 2914c. the range being within these figures, a loss of Vic for the day being noted. Cash coin was steady at unchanged prices. Oats—As a sample of bow* dull oats were it may be stated that for upwards of five minutes after the opening not one transac tion hnd been recorded. Dater a few trades were made, but most of tlie session was on a pgr with the opening. The close, was weak through sympathy with surrounding markets. Muy oats closed V*c under yester dav. Cash oats were steady. Provisions— Business in this market was far from bri*k although there were occa sions when fair trading took place. By far the greater part of the session was with notiiing at all doing. Some stwidiness was seen at the opening, hut the decline in wheat and a loss in value o live hogs pre vented products from maintaining firmness. The close was 12V*;e lower for January pork, 2l-fa5c lower for January lard and 7l,£e low er for Jautiawy ribs. The domestic markets were quiet and easy. The leading futures ranged as follows: Articles jOpening i Highest i Lowest jCJosiug, Wheat Oct. Dec. May. Corn— Oct. Nov. Dec. May. Oats— Oct. Dec. May. Port— Oct. Jan — May. Lard— Oct. Jan. Mav ...

New York, Oct. 19.—The Sun's cotton re view says: Cotfcon declined 58 to 60 points in N0w Orleans dnd 24 to 25 points In New York, closing weak In New York with sales of 287,200 bales. On the curb in New York sale.s of January are said to have been made as low as 8.60, which, if true, would make the total decline in New York for the day 85 points. Liverpool declined 8 points for future delivery and 3-32d on the spot, with sales of 7000 bales. Spot cotton here was quiet at *6c decline with sales of 145 bales for spinning- Middling: uplands 9%c. The New Orleans receipts on Monday are estimated at 18,000 to 21,600 balas, against 16,022 bajes last Monday, 31,250 bales on the same day last year fluid 18,250 bales on the Came day in 189*. Memphis received today 6890 bales, against 5112 bales for tho same day last week and 4094 bales for the same day last year. Houston eereir-ed 9068 biles, against 7530 for the same day last week and iv,220 bales for the same day last year. The southern spot markets were generally f.lower. Galveston declined 7-16c, Norfolk Vic and Mobile. Baltimore, Savannah, Augusta i and Wilmington *4c. Memphis sold 1700 bales. Augusta iOGa anu Galveston 1000 bales. The port receipts wens 44,111 b&U**,against 44,576 bales last Saturday and 53,4x1 bales for the same day last year. / The exports from the 'ports were 16,011 bales to Great Britain and 33,384 bales to the continent. It is denied that Ellison & Co. have issued a crop estimate of 7,500,000 bales. Today's fiatures: The liquidation here .and in New- Orleans was enormous and prices broke badly in these markets, par ticularly in New Orleans, where there was a-break of (^'points, due largely to a flood of sealing orders from 4he country, producing a' sfemLpanii.Xor the. tiiftr being. Liverpool was decidedly lower and the sensational re ports circulated of late in regard to the New Orleans speculation have had much to do SvitH^ThjTdecided fall in prices. The boars maintain that they m*e likely to go considerably lower. Bulls affirm that on the other hand that while there may be a further recession, it will merely bring prices to a basis at which exporters will buy even more freely than they have of late, and thus pave the way for another movement; that a gowt ‘'deal of weak long cotton has been cliniifmtfcd and thait sooner or later the beneficial eli'eets of this elimination will be apparent even to tM most radical bear. Today there was heavy selling here for New York. New Orleans, Liverpool and conti nental account, and there was also heavy buying on the decline LotIi lor long and short account. It is well known that tho clearances of cotton has latterly been in creasing steadily. Cotton bulls maintained that on the basis of supply and demand prices must ultimately go still higher; that the facts in regard to the crop have not been changed by the selling movement within the last few weeks. Chicago Board of Trade.
