stock: market
NEW YORIC, Nov. 17.— Distrust
of th* 1 artificial character of the
present market practically killed
speculative interest and -threw the
dealings almost into stagnation.
Tentative selling: operations at the
outset seemed designed mainly to
test that market. The rapid de
clines which resulted were In con
trast with the ease with which
prices had advanced in previous
sessions in response to concen
trated buying orders from a few
sources. The test was regarded as
establishing that no genuine act
ive participation was going on in
the dealings. No aggressive at
tempt was made to renew the ad
vance, and last prices were only a
little above the lowest.
Discussion of earnings in rela
tion to dividend requirements of
the spring wheat grangers and of
New York Central was a more
substantial influence and was re
flected in the special weakness of
these stocks.
The strong- weekly return of the
Bank of England showed the ex
tent of the improving money mar
ket position. There were heavy
payments, as well, to the Imperial
Bank of Germany and the Bank of
France.
Fales are being made In the
New Tork market of moderate
issues of new bonds, but at terms
which imply continued lightness
of investment demand and .the
necessity for extra attractions as
an Inducement. Success w^s re
ported for an offering of Kansas
City Terminal 4 per cent at 97 and
$15,000,000 Chicago and North
western general mortgage bonds
were sold to bankers to bear 4 per
cent, previous issues under this
mortgage having? been made at
2% per cent.
One-third of the day's business
Tras done in United States steel
and another third in Union Pacific.
Bonds were irregular. Total
sales (par value). $2,051,000.
United States bonds were un
changed on call.
NEW- YORK, f.*ov. 17.— E. F.
Hutton & Co.'s wire says: "There
was general expectation of a high
er stock marketModay as a result
of last night's closing, but from
what appeared to be manipulative
market tactics there was keen dis
appointment in the early opera
tions, when the market got a se
vere jolt from some quarter, caus
ing severe losses In the leading
railways. Many rumors were at
once set afloat, ranging from divi
dend reductions on the Hill issues
to coming unfavorable events at
Washington, but none of these
; rumors could be verified. What
\u0084 looked like, support was forthcom
\u25a0 ing in the general list after this
; sharp break and the market had
1 t> steadier tendency in the late
1 dealings, though much irregularity
; prevailed in Hill stocks. St. Paul
> and New York Central. There was
' practically no news to substan
! tlate the" various market move
• niPiits today, and it seems quite
I likely that manipulation by cer
1 tain "banking cliques was respon
> sible for the heaviness in securi
! ties.

STOCK MARKET
A large and varied business was done on the
stock and bond exchange yesterday. Stocks com
prised the bulk of the trading, as bonds were
dull. The feature was the marked advance, in
California wine from $42 to $45.50. Another
higher stock was Sprlns Valley water at $00.
Still another was telephone common at $45.50.
Hawaiian commercial was weaker at $33."
The recent advance in Pacific telephone common
is a feature of the New York stock exchange. It
is said that there is the best kind of buying on
this issue in New York, prompted by rumors that
dividends will be paid on the common sooner than
expected.

CHICAGO BOARD OF TRADE
Future Grain and Provision*
CHICAGO. Nov. 17.— Drought' in the Canadian
northwest helped put up the price of wheat here
today.. It. was also asserted that more rain was
needed in Argentina. The market closed with a
net cain of V&e to %<:, but profit taking made
the final tone weak.
Corn finished Vjc lower than last night and
oats off V*c. to %c. There was an irregular turn
in provisions, varying from 10c advance to an
equal decline. .
According to advices current In the wheat pit.
the drought west of Winnipeg had reached a seri
ous .stage, fyi consequence, the Mnnitoba market
led any pxchnngo in the United States today in
point of strength. Wheat here opened sharply
higher, was hammered down by pit traders and
then rallied on persistent buying, said to be for
leading loncs. who in the last hour realized in
wholesale fashion. The ! early dip in prices re
sulted partly from reports of a promised ending
to dryness in the southwest. Notwithstanding
the great amount of unloading on the bnlge. the
market in the end was well above las night's
level. May ranged from 06$; cto 979Ae, closing
at 9O i sic, a net gain of \*@%e.
Corn weakened on account of breaks of 2c to
3c In the cash article at Omaha and of 2c at
Kansas City. May fluctuated between 479t,c and
4Rc. with last sales at the first named figures, a
net loss of \£c/ Cash\corn was steady. No. 2
yellow closed at ,"[email protected]%c.
In oats thero was "a beginning of December
liquidation. May sold from 34c to 34^c and
'closed .at th«? lower level, a decline of %@%c:,
compared with last night.
Less disposition to sell provisions was shown,
fian yesterday. Last transaction were sc ' to
10c hlcher for pork, as against 24 hours previous:
2Vjc up to a shade off for lard, and with ribs at
2'-c advance to 10c decline. , • . . ...

CHICAGO. Nov. 17. — Wheat— E. F. Hutton &

Still Higher Prices for Wheat
Citrus Fruits Selling Off Freely
Argentina were confirmed, bnt some cable*
claim more • are needed. Continental European
markets haTe not responded to the strength
shown at Liverpool; although Paris ha* made
fair gains. Weakness of the coarse grains ha*
counted some against wheat today. No prospect
of export business in Manitoba, bnt shippers
have been good buyers at "Winaipee again tocay.
and that market Is leadlnc the American •\u25a0enters.
Extremely, dry in Canadian northwest. Snowing
in western Kansas today.
Corn— The market has deTPloped a gr?at d?«l
of weakness today, although prices were very
stubborn In their decline. Breaks of 2(33c ta^
cash corn at Omaha and of 2c at Kansas City,
however, have given the trade some indication
of the market's trend. Consignments here hare
Increased slowly, but local supplies are Hsbt.
and cash corn held steady fnr new and advanced
ii 4<4 <- for old. The latter Is wanted east, bnt
there is none to b" had here, and shippers are
unwilling to ship it to take chance* of possible
competition on arrival with lower priced new.
The market closed rrry -heavy and somewhat
lower.
Oats— Big trade In oats today. There was a
beginning of December liquidation. attpnd»d br
pome speculative raiding and some stop Io<w»
selling, the shipping call meanwhile being quite
discourasrfng. Cash oats In ,the sample market
were lower, despite Hght receipts. Shipping
sales finally were 175.000 bushel?, all sold at

Batter, Cheese ond'Ugsi
Prices - for eges showed some revision yester
day for the first time, in shout a week. Fresh
stock continued to sell readily in th» street, and
! this activity was reflected on the exchange, where
business under the call .sent the price of extras
up iJ ,ie to. 55%e a dosen. Fresh seconds, which
had 'been quoted at 30c a dozen for about two
months, were suddenly in demand and the price
was bid up'to 33c. There was no change in the
quotations \u25a0 for butter or cheese. Some dealers
reported a better feeling in butter, and the tone
of the market for extras was officially declared
firm .instead of weak, as on Wednesday. The
butter brocght \u25a0in from " New Zealand on the
steamer Aorangi a -few days ago may not be
marketed her*. At least it has \u25a0 developed that
one lot consigned to a locai house; was refused
entry because the customs service -pure fond ex
pert .-; found that some preservative was u»ed in
its manufacture.' Under the pure food, law butter
containing : preservatives can 'be sold only as
"adulterated butter,": and the, receiver of the lot
tnrned down did not care to market it; as such.
The butter was said. to be high grade In. all other
respects; and its falhirerto .withstand- th? :pure
food test was probably due to the manufacturers*
ignorance of the law.
Trading on the exchange yesterday wm con
fined to eggs, the sa!es being as follows: 2^
