THE MARKETS.
Cotton Letter.
New York, Dec. 5.—(Special.)—The cotton
market was again heavy today. Liverpool
failed to respond to our recovery of yester
day. The Turkish question remains unset
tled and threatening: the Bombay move
ment was on a very large scale; and port re
ceipts, while not equal to those of the last
three days, were decidedly larger than on
this day last week. This combination of de
pressing Influences was too much for the
market to withstand. January opened at
8.14 and gradually declined to 8.05, closing at
the lowest of the day, with the tone steady
at the decline. As long as receipts show a
tendency to increase traders here are in
clined to think that there must be some
mistake about the short crop, aud belive.lt
safer to sell cotton than to buy It. The dis
turbed political outlook abroad keeps Liver
pool depressed and these two considerations
seem to outweigh all the indications that
point to a yield of little more than 6,000,000
bales. We feel conflde.it that a day of reck
oning is coming for the bears, but for the
present we fear that the necessary support
is lacking to keep prices from going lower.

Chicago ’Change.
Chicago, Dec. 5.—Every little scrap of
bull news counted In the market for wheat
today and the result was a %c gain in prices
for the day, although the close was not at
the high figure of the session. At the top
figure the profits were tempting to the longs,
who sold oilt before the close, prices losing
something by the operation. The difference
between December and May narrowed to
very near 4c today. May wheat opened
from 60%ra60V2 to 60>4c, sold to 6114c, closing
at 61c, with the gain above noted. Cash
wheat was firm and %c higher.
Corn—Trading in corn was at a higher
range of prices, though the advance was not
enough to arouse enthusiasm or cause un
usual activity. The strength which per
mitted of the advance was attributed to the
improvement in wheat and to light receipts
of corn. May corn opened at 28%c, advanced
to 29*40, closing at 29c, higher than
yesterday. Cash corn was firm. Prices
were unchanged to y*c higher.
Oats derived benefit from the upward
movement of the other grains. The amount
of business whilst probably a little better
than has been noted lately, was, however,
considerably short of fair. May oats closed
%f(i*ic higher than yesterday. Cash oats
were firm and fully *4c higher.
Provisions—Products closed at about the
same prices as ruled at the opening, al
though there was an advance in the interim.
The hog market was flown and provisions
responded at the start. The strength of
wheat was considered encouraging, how
ever, and the scalpers bought, but offer
ings became too free for the advance to be
maintained. At the close May pork was a
shade higher than yesterday, while May
laid and ribs were unchanged.

In Wall Street.
New York, Dec. 5.—Stocks were Irregular,
but In the main weak. There were heavy
liquidations in certain of the industrials,
notably Leather preferred and Tobacco,
and moderate selling of Louisville and
Nashville, Chesapeake and Ohio, St. Paul
and Denv or and Rio Grande preferred for
London account. The sales for foreign ac
count were estimated at from 12,000 to 14,000
shares. An advance in sterling exchange
ih®re and the uncertainty of gold exports by
Saturday’s steamers added to the bearish
feeling. It is thought that at leas* $1,000,
000, and perhaps as much as $3,000,000, will
■be forwarded on the day named. The usual
ly active railway issues ran off % to V2 per
cent, the decline being most prominent in
Manhattan, Louisville and Nashville, Ches
apeake and Ohio, Denver and Rio Grande
preferred and Missouri Pacific. The gran
gers lost H<&$T per cent, hut when the divi
dend of 2V2 per cent was declared on North
western common, which practically places
the stock on a 5 per cent basis, Northwest
ern rose % per cent, to 6%, and the other
western shares rallied fractionally. In the
industrials Sugar, as usual, was the special
card, 64,600 shares changing hands at 103763>
10578- The suit brought by Syracuse parties
had not the slightest effect on the stock. In
fact, short sellers of yesterday and the day
to cover during tlie first hour, when the
stock touched 105%. When the usual divi
dends were announced the price settled
back to 103%. One broker bought 15,000
shares, supposed to be for a prominent
operator. Tobacco and Leather preferred
were depressed under free offerings of stock
for the long and short account. Chicago
Clas again recovered and was quoted at 04%
Qt05. Pacific Mail, after an early decline to
31%, returned to 32% and left off at 32% bid.
Jn the last, hour of business Reading was
more active, and on buying by Brokers iden
tified with interests opposed to the Earl
Olcott committee the stock rose about a
point, to 10%. A rumor, which lacked con
firmation, was to the effect that the assess
ment on the junior securities will be cut
down. Twenty per cent on the stock was the
figure previously reported. Philadelphia ad
vices stated that the company had retired
half a million car trusts from earnings.
Speculation closed irregular. Net changes
show declines of % to 1 per cent. Tobacco,
however, dropped 3% per cent, Leather pre
ferred 1% per cent. Chicago Gas, Reading
a! I Western Union gained per cent.
Ponds were lower; sales wore $1,360,000.
The sales of listed stocks today aggrega
ted 149,278 shares, ami of unlisted stocks

Sun's Cotton Review.
New York, Dec. 5.—The Sun’s cotton re
view says: Cotton fell 10 points early, then
recovered 7 points of the loss, after which It
dropped 12 points below the closing figures
of yesterday, closing steady at a net decline
of 11 points, with sales of 209,500 bales. Later
in the day sales! were reported at a rise of If
points from the closing prices. Liverpool
was firmer, but unchanged on the spot, with
sales of 12,000 bales. Futures there ad
vanced Vfe point, but lost this and closed
barely steady at a net decline of % to 1
point. Exports from the ports, 41,409 bales,
mostly to the continent.
The port receipts today were 25,510 bales,
against 19,071 bales the same (lay last week.
Spot cotton here was dull at l-16e decline.
In Manchester cloths were flat, while yarns
were firmer. Bombay weekly receipts, 69,
000 bales, against 13,000 bales last year. Ship
ments, 1000 bales to Great Britain and 19,000
bales to the continent, against none last
year.
Today’s features: Light receipts, con
tinued activity in Liverpool and lowering
exports caused a rally, but prices later
moved downward, owing partly to gold en
gagements and partly to continued dullness
and depression in the spot market. The
estimates for New Orleans and Houston to
morrow are small, the crop movement far
below that of 1&)2, the short crop year, and
many believe that sooner or later cotton
prices must move upward sharply, though
there may be a temijorary recession, due
more or less to disturbing political and
financial reports from Europe.

but indicate some improvement over the
average experiences for November and tlie
prospects of a material increase in business
this month. The effect of this will probably
be felt later on in the primary market. The
feature of the spring business doing just
now is tho demand for novelties in line
printed and woven patented goods. There
has been no change in the tone of the mar
ket for either cotton or woolen goods.
