LOWER PRICES
IN WALL STREET
NEW YORK, Dec. 3.— Today's
brief session on: the stock ex
change was without noteworthy
incident. American securities
were steady in London but opened
heavy here and this tone was con
tinued to the end, before which
some of the lowest prices of the
week were reported. The pres
sure against Union Pacific, Le
hiffh Valley, United States Steel
and other standard issues was
most marked.
Imports of drygoods and gen
eral merchandise for the week
were $1,500,000 in excess of the
previous week. a*nd the total
since the beginning of the year
is $17,000,000 greater^ Another
largre shipment of currency to the
Pacific coast was made today with
indications that the movement to
that center and. Canada had not
yet run its course. ' »
The leading railway systems
continue to submit reports of
operations for October. That of
the Chicago and Northwestern
roa.l showed a loss of $408,000 in
operating income, while Louis
ville and Nashville reported a loss
for the same account of $341,000.
On the other hand, the Burling
ton showed a decrease of $690.
000 in operating expenses and an
increase in total net revenues of
$1,260,514.
The bank statement was es
pecially interesting for its large
actual increase in loans, this item
aggregating more than $18,000,000
despite the week's liquidation in
stocks. The cash loss of $10,500.
000 also exceeded largest esti
mates. Other banks and trust
companies showed a nominal ex
pansion of the loan account.
Government bonds were un
changed on call for the week.
Total sales, $1,009,500.
NEW YORK, Dec. 3. —E. F.
Hutton & Co.'s wire says: The
president's message will be out
Monday and possibilities of an
anthracite* decision on Tuesday.
ThesA factors should make for
lower prices unless, the short in
terest is extended, which we think
is somewhat so.
Transactions are mostly con
fined to floor trading, with a little
commission business with market
backing and fillingr and profes
sionals short. No features.

The Financier will say:
"Owing to a decrease of $10,569,500 In legal
tenders and specie, the surplus reserve of the
New York clearing house banks was reduced for
the week ending Saturday by $12,631,200, which
leaves the present surplus of over the 25 per
cent minimum at $5,048,500. or less than one-third
the amouut reported for tho previous week. The
loss in cash, which was heavier than anticipated,
was due to large payments into the subtreasury
by the banks for transfer to the Pacific coast
and to withdrawals by the Canadian banks. A
feature of the statement which stems to Indicate
that the banks are taking on loan commitments,
which had been temporarily shifted elsewhere,
was the Increase of $18,270,800 in the loan Item.
"The loans of the trust companies and outside
Institutions Increased $2,298,000. so that the loan
expansion of the banks can not be traced to the
shifting of that Item by the trust companies. The
figures given above are based on the statement of
nctfi.il conditions issued Saturday. The state
ment of averages made the loss of cash only
53.474.200. the loan increase $14,664,000 and the
deleft expansion $11,074,000.
"The present surplus reserve figured on the
average statement is $11,877,050 or more" than
twice as large as indicated by the actual state
ment report."

Funds are accumulating in the. hands of private

upon the bond market, whence these, accumula

shows no improvement. Few rail orders have
been placed. Some of the railroads ore. figuring
"n bridge work, but car orders are coming out
slowly. The whole country is awaiting the out
come of important developments. The supply
of stocks is limited, but the public does not
respond to rising prices, which .are maintained

The Fresno Republican of December 1 says:
The Snge well 11 and the .Maricopa -Thirty-six,
both in the vicinity of the Lakevjew. broke
loose aatain yesterday nnd for several hours shot
oil into the air. The Sage 11 at noon blew the
tools out . of the well. - smashed the crown block
and spouted oil 300 feet above' the top of the
derrick. There was a great amount of gas. and
the volume of : oil was much less
than it appeared fn>m a distance. Yesterday's
performance of the Maricopa Thirty-six was a
little less spectacular than that of the Sage 11.
but otherwise the effect was similar. - The well
Is 1,907' feet deep and has just " entered .the oil
Rand from ' which the gas and. oil -come. It is
the intention of Superintendent- Tryon, how
ever, to go through this sand and. tap the .Lake
view strata. The Sage 11 and the Maricopa
Thirty-six: are about 1.400 feet apart, and when
both were ina ction things looked quite lively
In North Sunset.
That there Is • more, activity In the Little
Sespe district, Ventura county, at present thats
nt any time since the ; first operations were
started over 20 years api is the opinion of old
timers in the field. During: the last few months
many new rigs have been installed. ."Most of
these new operations are bclnK conducted in the
northern end of the field, above the old wells
of the Union oft company. Geological . condi
tions' in this locality are identical with those
of- the :lower or- older portion of the district,
and \u25a0'. there is ; therefore . every reason to ' believe
that -an extension of the field In the north
ern direction* will result in 'the development of
oil in the' same quantities, and of the same
quality as that produced In the Tar creek region
and farther down toward the Big Sespe creek.
Work Is being ' done, to control the Midway
.'Premier's big well by heavy- gates capable, of
sustaining \u25a0 a pressure, of 1.000 pounds- to- the
square inch, thnt . have ' been \u25a0 secured \u25a0' from tlie
Standard, and an effort will be made to attach
them to the casing. \u25a0 ': ;\u25a0\u25a0
\u25a0-.Tim ' gusher is ; producing? by latest reports
about 15,000 barrels. of oil daily.' During the
time the well was sanded up tanks were erected
for: settling the oil,: and the Standard's pumps
are '. now connected with these - tanks and are
handling about 10.000 to 12.000 barrels. Nearly
nil the oil is being saved.- hut some further \u25a0
economy will be possible when \u25a0 the new srates :
are in place.

CHICAGO BOARD OP TRADE
Future Grain anil Provisions
CHICAGO. Dec. 3. — Larger speculators of the
professional sort coolly reinstated today some of
the wheat sold out 24 hours previous during the
flurry about weakness In Wall street. Freezing
weather' coining on unprotected fielils in the south
west had much to do with the latest change of
front. The reported complete failure of the crop
in Bahia Blanca and Santa Fe. Argentina, added
to the. feeling .of strength. In consequence clos
ing prices were firm at a net advnnre of siQle.
Other staples. t<v>. all finished higher — corn up
6i(??Tic, oats %f§^ic up and provision* 5'522%c
higher.
Wheat rose steadily from the start. Predic
tions of a. cold. wave were accompanied by bullish
Argentine and French cables, and were followed
by news of large clearances from the United
States. * Primary receipts for the week showed a
big falling off as compared with last year. Anx
iety regarding, drought damage to the winter
crop was decidedly Increased. Forecasts of more
moderate world shipments developed a still
greater snap on the hull side. Final transactions
were almost at the highest point of the session.
May ranged from 96'ic to 97% c. closing Tjc up
at 07->4c i .
Eastern ca«h grain dealers reported -stocks of
corn low. • May fluctuated from 47' r ii»" to 4S"isC.
closing firm, at 4S%c. a gain- of Tic over last
night. Cash corn was strong. No. 2 yellow fin
ished at 52%' iQ 53c.
Offerings of oats were light. May varied from
345£ c to 35% c. with latest sales at 35% c, a net
advance of %ia%c.
-Fairly good buying pnt up the market'for hoz
products. The final outcome was to make pork
