MARKETS BY TELEGRAPH.
New York, Nov. 20.—(Special.)—The mar
ket had a more hopeful tone today—the first
news from Liverpool was disappointing and
brought in a flood of selling orders, which
forced Januar> down to 8.05 on the opening
call, but after these had been executed
.prices rapidly improved, and the advance
was not checked until January sold at 8.18;
realizing sales then caused a reaction iti
.which January sold back to 8.12, but in Die
final trading the demand again improved
.and the close was steady with January at
&15'&8.1C. The trade is still very undecided
as to what the crop shortage is going to be
by the end of the year. We hope the receipts
will have conclusively settled that point and
then we shall expect a material advance,
<saean time we shall probably have a fluc
tuating market, and we advise those of our
^friends who are content with a moderate
• profit to buy cautiously upon weak spots.

agreement of the trunk line representatives

•Ex-dividend (Bid. lAsked.
Chicago. Nov. 20.—An unconfirmed rumor
of the death of the sultan of Turkey, which
obtained broad circulation yesterday after
noon, was the means of advancing wheat
on the curb and with the gain which was
then secured still adhering to prices the
market opened this morning. The scalpers
and floor traders were disposed to work for
a further appreciation In values at the
start, but were soon convinced that the ef
forts In that direction were futile, after
which the trend of the market was down
ward. Wall street was said to be a good
seller, but taking the entire day’s business
Into consideration the tfade was far below
an ordinary day’s transactions. December
wheat opened from 6744 to 6744©®74*c, de
clined to 57V4c. closing at 5744c, a shade low
er than yesterday. Cash wrheat waa quiet
Corn—The range showed fluctuation* cov
ered 44c, but the bulk of the trading was
at one quotation. Weakness was the pre
dominating tone, although the opening was
quite firm. Orders either to buy or to sell
were something of a curiosity, and a trader
who had one was quite an important person.
The feeling- of wheat extended to corn and
ruled the action of prices. May corn opened
at 29%c, sold at 29%c. where it closed, %c
under yesterday. Cash corn was quiet and
Oats—About noon there was quite a
gathering in the oat pit, and from a distance
it looked like an excited market, but upon a
near approach it was evident that there
was more noise than business. May was
freely offered at 20%<Ti20%c, with 20%o bid,
but trades were few. The balance of the ses
sion was undisturbed by any incident. May
oats closed a shade under yesterday.
Provisions—By way of a change in the
inactivity of the provision market there
was rather a lively time during a portion of
the morning. A prominent scalper enliven
ed proceedings by selling and offering free
ly, his efforts accompanying a decline, al
though a moderate one, throughout the list.
Hogs were quoted firmer, but products de
rived no benefit from that direction. At
the close January pork was 7Mlower. Jan
uary lard 2Vfce lower, January ribs 5c lower.

Sun’s Cotton Review.
New York, Nov. 16.—The Sun’s cotton re
view says; Cotton fell from 4 to 6 points,
but recovered this and advanced 6 points,
after which there was some reaction but the
close was steady at a net rise for the day of
4 points, with sales of 226,000 bales. Liverpool
advanced 2V4 points and closed very steady,
with sales of 2000 bales on the spot today and
18,000 yesterday, at unchanged prices. New
Orleans declined 6 to 7 points, but recovered
this and advanced 6 to 6 points, after
which some of the Improvement on January
was lost, leaving that month 3 points high
er. Spot cotton declined 1416c at Mobile;
other spot markets were unchanged. New
York sold 208 bales for spinning and 700 bales
were delivered on contracts: New Orleans
sold 6000 bales. Mobile 1200 bales, Augusta
803 and Savannah 772 bales.
Port receipts were 86,322 bales, agslnst

123,000, 276,000, 207,000 and 40,000 bales in the
previous five years.
Today’s features: A good many were dis
appointed at the Liverpool news today for a
decided advance had been expected In that
market and accordingly nrice.s first took a
dow'nward course. But later on a bullish
tide set in and easily carried the market
upward, owing mainly to the buying by
German houses here for short account, and
the impression that element In the market
now favors the bull side for at least a turn,
the leason being that the erOp movement is
much smaller than the believers In lower
prices have been expecting. The arrivals at
the ports and interior towns today were
moderate, the estimated receipts tomorrow
at both New Orleans and Houston are small
the exports are large, the spot markets are
active In this country and in England there
ia a growing belief* that continental spln
nfers nave contracted for goods far in ex
cess of their supplies of raw cotton. In the
rise today there was more or less liquidation
for New* York and New Orleans account,
but the tone was more hopeful than, per
haps, at any time for several weeks past.
