Cotton Letter.
Now York, Dec. 26.—(Special.)—Liverpool
bting closed the brokers exepected a dull
market and they were not disappointed. In
the forenoon prices were fairly firm on very
light receipts. March opened at 8.01 and ad
vanced to 8.06, but the announcement that
the receipts of Now Orleans tomorrow
would be heavy changed the temper of spec
ulation. A selling movement began, and on
light offerings March sold down to 7.92. The
close was quiet, but steady, with March at
7.94^(7.95. The flurry over the war and tha.
finance*.seemed to have spent its force, at
least as far as cotton is concerned, and the
immediate future of prices is going to de
pend on receipts. The bears claim that the
January movement will be a liberal one.
The bulls say that it will be very small. We
shall see which is right.
It IORDAN & CO.
Chicago 'Change.
Chicago, Dec. 20.—It was still Christmas
to all intents and purposes in the wheat
market today. There was a burst of activ
ity in the last half hour, but it was the re
sult of selling out in response to the weak
ness which assailed stocks in Wall street
at that time and not indicative of a desire
ion the part of the traders to do business.
The action until the time mentioned was
fvery slow, with prices slightly above Mon
day’s close, but the firmness disappeared
flyate in the session and prices rested at a
decline from that. Bradstreet’s reported
an increase in the world's stosks of 3,716,000
(bushels. The Thomas report was out, giv
ing an estimate of 235,000.000 bushels in farm
ers’ hands on January 1. Lt was argued that
the figures were bullish, but it was noticea
ble that the. privileged few who had the re
port early evinced a pre-ferecne for the sell
in gfiide. May wheat opened at 58%<g>58%c,
sold between 58% and 57%(&57%c, closing at
67%c. %(®%c under Monday. Cash wheat was
Steady, but closed weak with the futures.
Corn—The same conditions ruled in corn
as in wheat, with a smaller break at the
close There was no effort or desire to trans
act business, and only the necessity of li
quidating compelled the temporary activity
at the end ol’ the session. Bradstreet’s re
ported an increase in stocks cast of the
Rocky mountains of 1,160,000 bushels. May
corn opened at 28(§-'28%c, declined to and
closed at 27%'u27~fcc, under Monday.
Cash corn was %c lower.
Oats—The normal condition of the oats
market being full, ail round inactivity had
no particular effect. Anyhow prices declin
ed near, the close in sympathy with wheat
and corn. May oats closed *4c under Mon
day. Cash oats were ty&V&c lower.
Provisions were up Tn the morning, with
bogs down in the aftrenoon with grain and
stock* The trade was not completely inac
tive. Commission houses were fair buyers,
whilst professionals did theb ulk of the Gell
ing. At the close May pork was 2under
Monday, May lard 2V&c higher and May ribs
unchanged. Domestic markets were quiet,
but steady.
The leading futures ranged as follows:

In Wall Street
New York. Dec. 26.—Stocks showed consid
erable strength during the early hours, the
easier condition of the money market, lower
j*atca for sterling exchange and a belief
that there will be favorable legislation at
Washington being the contributing eauses.
The opinion was also universal that .meas
ures will be taken cither by congress or thq
executive looking to the restoration of the
gold reserve, and this led to buying of se
securltiea in certain quarters. Hankers
were making preparations for the expected
Issue, which it is now thought will be at
least 1100.000,000. There was any amount of
gossip about the Issue, but people usually
In touch with the government’s financial op
erations either did not know or did not care
to go on record as making prediction* about
the matter. The war scare also abated and.
London was a moderate buyer of Louisville
and Nashville, St. Paul and other stocks
with an International market. The opinion
as to railway earnings in the west also led
to buying of stocks of wheat and corn car
rving roads. The easier condition of sterl
ing exchange put an end to the foolish talk
about a premium on gold, and a leading
bullion dealer stated that only Inquiry for
.the metal was from Intending purchasers
of the new government loan. The improve
ment in stock prices In the first hour ranged
from 1 to 4 per cent higher. Lackawanna
rose 4V4, to 165*4; Michigan Central 3. to 98;
Cotton Oil preferred 3, to 64; Lead preferred

2%, to 87%; Consolidated Gas 2%, to 152%:
Lake Shore 2%, to 147; Louisville and Nash
ville 2*4, to 47%; Northwest 2, to 100%; Can
ada Southern 1%, to 50; St. Paul 1%, to 69%;
Rook Island 1%, to 68%; ersey Central 1%, I
to 102%, and the other active Issues % to
% per cent. The advances induced sales to
realize profits, and a reaction of U to 2 per
cent followed, Rock Island, Rig Four, Lake
Shore, St. Paul and Manhattan being most
conspicuous in the downward movement.
Lackawanna, which had sold at 165% early
in the day, was subsequently bid for at 100
and offered at 162%. Reading, Burlington
and Quincv and for atime Leather preferred
were weak and lower. Reading was sold
by holders who do not wish to pay the heavy
assessment. Leather preferred was sold
down to 61% from 64 on a board rumor that
the dividend will not be paid. Later there
was a recovery to 63 on semi-official denials
of this reoprt. Baltimore and Ohio fell 3%
per cent, on the revival of the unfavorable
reports about the company’s financial con
dition. The market ruled quiet during the
greater part of the afternoon, and the
course of prices was irregular until the
close, when speculation became firmer ow- i
ing to a sudden rise in Sugar to 103%. The
buying of Sugar at this time was based on
the belief that there will be no adverse legis
lation so fin* as . this.-*company is concerned
at Washington at this session. Net changes
show gains of % to 8% per cent for the day.
Reading, Union Pad tic, and Chicago, Bur
lington and Quincy show losses of % to l per
cent. Baltimore and Ohio, however, lost 3%
per cent.
Railway bonds, after a firm opening, be
came weak on sales to realize. Total sales
\viMfc $2,023,080.
The sales of listed stocks aggregated 214,
390 shares; unlisted, 89,749 shares.

Dry Goods.
New York, Dec. 26.—The dry goods market
opened today with an extremely quiet ap

ments to effect any change therein. The
action of mail orders for two days helped
to swell the bustnesa in progress, but even
in this direction conservative buying was a
feature.

Sun’s Cotton Review.
New York, Dec. 2(1.—The Sun’s cotton
review says:
Cotton advanced 3 to 4 points, then lost
this and declined 9 to 11 points, then ral
lied slightly and closed quiet but steady,
with sales for the day of <155,200 bales.
Today’s feature^': Trregularity charac
terized the market today, which was
under the influence of conflicting factors,
that is to say, there was an early ad
vance, due to small receipts, local cov
ering and some buying by New Orleans
and the continent, but later on prielTs
gave way under the influence of large es
timates for New Orleans tomorrow. Ger
man houses sold. There was a good deal
of switching, many selling January and
buying March and May. In a word, it
was a small and regular market, so small
that anticipations of liberal receipts to
morrow were potent enough to put prices
down, although any increase in the re
ceipts Is expected to be only temporary.
