EASTERN MARKETS
NEW YORK STOCK MARKET.
NEW YORK, Dec 4.— The price movement of stocks shifted many
times sgain during the course of the day's trading, reflecting either the
genuine doubts and hesitations of operators or the manipulative effects of
professional operations designed to conceal the real course of the trans
actions and to confuse the minds of observers. The market was rather
greatly depressed in the Nearly part of the day and manifested vigorous
strength in the latter part. The early depression was traceable in -part to
the effect of selling for foreign account and the unfavorable view taken
abroad of the contents of the president's message, or rather of its omissions.
The Japanese incident seemed to be seriously regarded in foreign circles
also. The copper stocks were an active center of weakness. Successive
dividend reductions of different copper mining stocks have worn upon the
courage of holders. The United States Steel stocks shared in the depression
lo some extent, especially the preferred stock.
The weakness of American Smelting was attributed to fears of a re
duction in the dividend rate, but its greatest weakness was shown after the
announcement of the declaration of the regular dividend on the stock. The
disposition to take advantage of the good news to sell the stocks created a
bad impression.
There was another decline in the price of copper and it was feared that
the recent heavy shipments of copper to Europe represented rather a transfer
of holdings to a more convenient money market than an actual marketing
of stocks. The vigorous rally in the market found its initiation in the Hill
railroad group. Definite news for the active buying at rising prices of
this group was lacking. It was accompanied by large lending of money on
call by banking interests closely identified with these properties. Subscrip
*:.cns. to Great Northern new stocls c:JI for a payment of an installment of
l: 3,000,000 on December 6, and those for Northern Pacific new stock for an
.\u25a0 Tstallment of $11,625,000 payable January 1. There was a pronounced re
.^xation in the call money market and the premium on currency fell back
a^ain. This was connected with the issuance of the comptrollers call for
imports of the condition of the national banks as of December 3. It has
been assumed that some recent purchases of currency for account of interior
banks^were to strengthen their showing tcr be made in response to this call,
rc*v expected for many days past.
Banks also are always more liberal in extending credit liabilities im
mediately after complying with the call from the comptroller. The expected
demonstration that the deficit now existing in the reserves of the New York
banks will be found amply accounted for by the recruitment by interior bank
reserves in the process of withdrawal from New York will go far to cure
apprehension over the New York reserve position, which is in fact about
20 per cent of deposit liabilities at the present figures. It must be borne in
mine that the 25 per cent requirement on central reserve banks is based
on the double function filled by the portion of the reserve made up of
deposits of other banks on which loans are made both by the central reserve
banks and the depositing banks. With deposits by other banks drawn down,
the potential requirement on the reserve is logically reduced. _ A prelude
to the responses to the comptroller's call was found in the re"port of the
mOney in circulation in the country on December 1, according to the monthly
statement of the treasury.
The increase in the circulation medium for the month of November
reached the prodigious total of $131,873,000.
The increase in October, although the spasm of the panic did not develop
•until the fourth quarter of the month, was upward of $70,000,000. making
the total expansion for the two months considerably over $200,000,000 and
actively extending since the Ist of December. r The per capita circulation
of the country was thus brought up to $34.71 on December 1. A reduction
in the Bank of England discount rate tomorrow was discussed as a pos
sibility, and helped to the later strength of stocks, which was maintained
to the close.
Bonds were irregular. Total sales, par value, $4,076,000.
United States bonds were unchanged on call.

hear much encouraging talk in the money situa

short interest is as large as ever, furnishing
the ty-st kind of a bcsls . for a good advance.
Local manipulation was responsible for the rise
In Arcs dlan and we do not think it has any
significance."

NEW YORK, . Dec. 4. — On strong cables the

advance, with the market actlva and the trad
ing the largest of any day of the soason. The
strength of Liverpool rras quite a surprise to the
trade here, many claiming ft was bought up from

mand by spinnere. Th« large spot demand there
confirmed this later cable. . Spots In the south

CHICAGO BOARD OF TRADE
Future Grain and Provisions
CHICAGO, Dec. 4. — Weakness in the wheat
market developed toward the. middle of the ses
sion and ' continued until the close. Prior to
that time a strong tone had prevailed owing to
active: demand by commission bouses^and" shorts,
aue to the strength in corn , and oats nnd to an
advance In the price of wheat .at Liverpool,
me situation : in "the -northwest was the princi
pal reason for the selling pressure that carried
prices down from*l%@l7*e from the high
point of the . session. Receipts of wheat at
Minneapolis and Duluth today were nearly ." 100
cars In excess of those received the correspond
ing day a year ago, while those , at : Winnipeg
were 3*6 cars against 21C cars last year.' A re
port from : Minneapolis was to the effect. that th«
movement would . continue to be heavy all win
ter. : A slump In "coarse grains helped to weaken
the market during the last hour of trading. The
close was weak. May. opened %@%c higher ot
$1.01% @1.02%, sold up to $1.02 % and then
declined to $1.00%. Tbe close was at $1.00%
<ai.oo?i.
Cora prices advanced from % @lc early in
the day as a result of active demand by shorts,
who were, actuated by continued urgent inquiry
for • cash corn -by eastern shippers. Leading
longs sold freely on the bulge.\ which caused ; a
loss of - all the early gain. The - market closed
weak. May opened %@%c higher at 66%@57c,
advanced vto 679gc and then declined to 50Uc
The close was at 66%@66%c.
' Sentiment . in \u25a0 the oat pit was decidedly bull
ish early in the session, owing mainly to urgent
demand for cash oats. The price of cash grain
was up from I@2c, the advance being , at
tributed chiefly to an- active demand from the
south. Nearly all of this gain was later lost on
realizing. The close was easy. May. opened
KSl&c higher at 53Uif$5S%c. advanced to
54»4c and then declined to 52 &c The close
was at 52% (252?; c.
; Provisions advanced sharply early in the' day
on renewed ; covering by shorts, based on the
smallness of local stocks. Much of the gain
wrs later lost on profit taking. At the close
May pork showed a net gain of 7%c. Lard was
np 7%*r> Ribs were 10c higher.

Wheat— Chicago was lc lower and weak, and
a broker's wire from there said: "The selling
in the northwestern markets forced prices down,
and this took the -. support from wheat .here.
There is no renewal of export business at these
prices, as many expected. There . was some i
selling from the northwest In onr market.-"Re
ceipts of -spring wheat continue very large. '
The market will . naturally have • some recovery \u25a0

been followed up by a statement that the mla«
owners and the miners intend to flght Ujelr
difficulty to a finish, which has a depressing
effect on the southern Nevadas. th«r« wre no
marked declines yesterday, but the market was
weak and very dull, with no important n«w«
