Dec. 7.—Considerable business has been done during the week, though principally in small lots and car loads. An ■unusual amount of figuring has been going on among buyers, “almost persuaded’' that mow is a favored time in which to contract Ifor future wants, and many’ of these nego tiations are crystalizng into orders, though ut prices somewhat under those of ten days ago, but the large majority, realizing that (the old axiom that “iron is the barometer of trade’’ signally failed this year, have little confidence in the market, and have decided to await developments. The general market is heavy and irregular in consequence, a fact patent to all interested. Pessimists and bears think prosperity has stone bruises on both heels and cannot get here at all. but pig iron makers claim that some panaceas are near at hand in the forms of an able pa triotic congress, and very low stocks of raw iron, both at furnaces and at the yards of consumers. There are indications that the concessions made by some of tlie southern furnaces dur ing the past fortnight will not be repeated in the near future. The principal makers in the Alabama district have reaffirmed their schedule of August 30. and owing to their very meager stocks, purpose maintain ing it. The month of December may continue the history of its tirst week, though a larger buying will in all probability mark the lat ter part of the month. We quote for cash f. o. b. cars.

New York. Ne w York, Dec. 7.—The standoff between buyers and sellers of iron continues. De cember is generally a light month In sales, because of the usual custom of running stocks low prior to inventory. This year there Is the added inducement of buying to break down prices in a contest of strength ■with producers. The umpire in the con test is general business, and he will render his decision early In the new year. Mean while. a majority of furnaces have plenty of unfilled contracts to work on. The few that do not are cutting prices more or less to fill up their order books. The drop in Bessemer and the dullness In foundry irons ts a dampener on the few remaining fur naces, north and south, that were making preparations to go in. Indeed the margin Is so close for some of those that have start ed that a further decline will raise awkward problems. The business outlook, viewed from this center, is better than a month ago. The Kadlr scare, the war scare the assem bling of congress and the gold exports have ceased to alarm. The balance of trade is for the time in our favor, and the gold move ment will not continue long. There Is con fidence that whatever financial legislation a republican congress and President Cleve land may unite upon, will be conservative end helpful. Nevertheless the prevailing temper is hesitative. There is an absence of speculative spirit, not only on the ex changes, but all through the range of busi ness.

Liver pool Improved, and although the receipts were larger than the bulls had expected, the market had a good undertone frotn start to finish. March, which closed at 8.26 on Saturday, opened at 8.27 and advanced to 8.36. The close was steady with March at firstname.lastname@example.org. The feature of the day was the ex , pensive catering of shorts by the leading German houses. There was no great eager ness to buy, but as nobody cared to sell a very small demand sufficed to stiffen prices. We think that cotton is cheap enough and believe that whenever the market softens it w ill pay to buy it. RIORDAN & CO. Chicago 'Change. Chicago, Dec. 9.—A decrease in the visible supply of wheat of 117,000 bushels. Instead of an increase of about 2,000,000 bushels as had been looked for, caused consternation in the bear camp today. An advance of 1‘4c resulted in a singular feature—ihe relative small amount of stuff sold on the rise. Shorts sold and took the wheat back again on each fractional advance. Early the crowd was presenting an unusually active appearance. Under the effect of the ex pectation prices easily declined 14c, but as the figures were received from the different points included in the statement it became apparent that there was misapprehension and values steadily recovered what they had previously lost. The final announce ment caused a strong bulge. May wheat opened at 61%®61Mji\ sold between 6114 and G3V*c, closing at 62%&?63c, 114c higher than Saturday. Cash wheat was firm and 114c higher. Corn—The corn market depended entirely on wheat for impulse. The downward In clination of the finer grain early was more willingly participated in, however, than the later advanced tendency. The trade in this grain looks with considerable doubt on any immediate appreciation in values, and for that rojison was adverse to buying any thing. May corn opened at 2!fe, sold between 2S74 and 2914c, closing at the outside, un changed from Saturday. Cash corn was quiet but steady. The oats market was in its usual lethargic state. A very harrow range, with the tem per of the other markets governing the mod erate fluctuations noted. May oats closed unchanged from Saturday. Provisions—Again the hog market was lower this morning, and product traders were discouraged on the news. Packers sold considerable today and holders of long stuff were disposed to liquidate. At the close May pork was 5c under Saturday, and May lard and ribs each 214c lower. The leading futures ranged as follows: Articles i6peniug|Highest■ Lowest iCiosing. W heat Dec.

The transactions In it were 202,000 shares, an enormous total, leav ing only 108,233 shares for the remainder of the list. Of this Chicago Gas, Sugar and Leather preferred figured for 1MM100 shares, so that the sales of the usually active list dwindled down to Inslgnlflcent proportions. Tobacco opened anywhere from 66 down to 63 ruled comparatively steady around 63 and 64 until the afternoon, when It bounded up to 72 and left off at 71%c, against 67% on Saturday last. It developed during the late trading that a big short Interest had covered and that Insiders were willing to accord the stock some support One bear house re turned a block of the stock which It had borrowed some time ago, and It was cur rent gossip that the deal had netted Its prin cipals several hundred thousand dollars. The return of this stock thoroughly fright ened the smaller bears, who made frantic efforts to get back their contracts In the late trading. There was some buying of the stock for the long account on the theory that all the bad news about the property had been made public. The stockholders’ movement against the directors is making progress, and it is expected that several other stock exchange houses will join with the Rolston, Bats and Bache company shortly. It is understood that a professor of a trust company has been offered the chair manship of a committee to investigate the company's affairs, and that a definite an swer will be given in a day or so. The pre ferred stock dropped 8% per cents, to 90, and rallied to 98% and 98. Leather preferred fol lowed Tobacco so far as activity is concern ed, and 52,700 shares changed hands. The stock first broke 3 per cent to 59%, and then recovered to 01% on covering of short sales. Chicago Gas was w'e&ker on moder ate dealings—15,900 shares, ana receded to 6?%&68. A holder of Fidelity Trust receipts who turned them in under the Olcott-Flower committee agreement lias demanded the re turn of his original certificates. The officials of the Central Trust company have refused to return them and a suit has been brought before Judge Bisehoff of this city. Sugar was firm, and after receding to 105% rose to 107%3/106%. The railway list was quiet, but firm, except for Reading, which fell from 9% to 8%r«/9%. There is a disposition to get out of the stock before the 20 per cent as sessment is levied. The weakness of the sterling exchange market and a belief that the gold exports would be limited had a strengthening influence. Speculation closed firm, with prices anywhere from 1% to 4% per cent higher on the day, the latter in Tobacco. BondsTwere lower; sales were $892,000. The sales of listed stocks aggregated 270, 318 shares, and of unlisted slocks 99,915 shares. New York, Dec. 9.—Money on call was steady at 2% per cent, last loan at 2 per cent and closing offered at 2 per cent; prime mer cantile paper, 4%#5% per cent. Bar silver, 66%e.

New York, Dec. 9.—The Sun’s cotton re view says: Cotton rose 9 points, lost 4 or 5 points, then rallied and reached a position 10 to 11 points above the prices of last Satur day, closing Bteady, with sales of 189,300 bales. Today's features: It was a narrow, over sold market, and prices therefore advanced easily under the stimulus of exceptionally favorable Liverpool advices, where prices were not only higher, but spot cotton con tinued active, arfl^i better spot demand In this country at rismg quotations. Spot or ders on the short side were reported and the market closed firm. The German houses were buying. Not only local operators, but New Orleans, bought here. The receipts were larger than had been expected, but there were too many shorts and too good a demand for the actual cotton receipts to have an influence, particularly as many operators believe the crop is going to bo very short, whatever temporary spurt the receipts may show' from time to time. New' England mills are believed to be buying more freely at the south. The market cer tainly responds more quickly to bullish news than to news of an opposite character. Ex porters bought much more freely here to day at higher prices. New York Cotton Market.
