CHICAGO. Feb. 6. Big clearances and
Kood export demand at the Atlantic coast
brought about a reaction In wheat to-day
and May left off at an advance of Uo aft
er a break of lc early caused by liquida
tion of long property. Corn closed with, a

Early wheat news was not of a nature
-to bring- in fresh buying orders and the
market opened weak. Liverpool cables came
equal to "54c per bushel lower and the.Lon
don markets showed even a greater de
cline. The amount of ocean passage in
creased 2,560,000 bushels during the past
week, and the world's shipments amounted
to about 9,000,009 bushels', or 2.000.000 above
requirements. May opened Uc lower at
714T2c. and as there were a few buying
oraers irom Jot. louis .ana rew xoru to
bo filled, it touched 72Vic The Russian ship
ments for the week were only 656,000 bush
els, which was the most encouraging
feature the bulls could find In the early
information. Chicago received 87 cars, of
which only four graded contract. Min
neapolis and Duluth got 621 cars, com
pared with COO the corresponding day a
year ago. Primary AVestern market re
ceipts were 125,000 bushels, against 714,000
bushels last year. The visible statement
when completed showed 400.000 bushels in
crease where a decrease had been looked
for. 'When this became well understood
there was a general effort to getrid of long
wheat and the pressure 'soon carried May
off to TlVSc After that decline, however,
the market gave some indications of re
covering as there was an undercurrent of
opinion that the fall wheat has suffered to
(some extent from the recent cold weather.
Shorts became active buyers on the an
nouncment of clearances at Atlantic seaboard,-
which amounted- to 703,000 bushels.
In the final dealings. New York reported
that CS boatloads had been sold for export
and that caused more activity in the buy
ing, the conseqence of which was an ad
vance in May wheat to 72$jc and 72rs72i4c
was it closing rate.
Corn suffered a little early. In sympathy
with wheat but wae, on tho whole, re
markably firm, considering the large re
ceipts at primary points and the enormous
estimates for to-morrow. Local bulls in
creased their lines- on the bears and this
buying, together with shorts, brought
about an upturn. Receipts"7 cars. May
opened llSc lower.
Receipts 743 cars. May opened,14c lower
at 36i, sold at 30 then improved to
37h, the closing price.
A good cash demand and the advance in
corn .were the strengthening influences in
oats. Receipts were 251 cars. Mav opened
unchanged at 2754, sold at 27 then firmed
up to 28 buyers at the close.
Provisions developed an easier tendency
at thp start on moderate selling of pork
and ribs. Later, however, buying of lard
by English houses, together with heaw
purchases of pork by representatives of
packing houses, brought about recovery.
Mav pork opened 2.Q5c lower, at H0.02W-!B
10.05. rose to $10.17, and closed at $1015
310.17. The range in lard and ribs was
narrow.

A vtrr cood demand was had yesterday for most
orTerings, but as cables came In lower and the re
relpts were very good, values were a trifle weaker.
The visible supply In the United States and Canada
also showed an Increase of 401,000 bushels, which
favored buyers. Speculation, however, was a little
better than Saturday and the market closed firm
t the prices with most offerings disposed of. By

There was mors In yesterday than for some time
and cables were bearish, which caused buyers to
hold back and squeeze prices a little. Mixed went
off 54c and white 5ic and even at this reduction there
was no especial life to trade. Futures were a trifle
stronger than Saturday, but In the face of an In
crease of 1.069.000 bushels In the visible supply In
the United States' and Canada this had no Influence

Stocks and Bonds.
NKW YORK, Feb. . Stock prices were extremely
variable to-day, but .ended with only fractional net
changes, the majority of which were upward. Many
conflicting reports reached the street as to the proba
bilities of confirmation or rejection of tho peace
treaty, and these were Instrumental In staying val
ues. The first effect of the uprising at Manila was
discouraging. Stocks opened below London parity,
and there were soon material declines in a number of
cases. Lake Erie & Western preferred dipped 3H.
Southern Pacific 3?, and numerous other shares to
the extent of a point or more. Tobacco ran off 25i,
and later extended its decline to over 6 points on the
announcement that a rival company hod absorbed an
Important Independent concession. London sold about
15.000 shares of stock. Traders bought on the decline
and prices Improved. Although dealings were much
contracted compared with recent averages, prices
rose above Saturday's closing. A number of high
priced stocks, including New York Central and Penn
sylvania, together with the local traction and ras
stocks, were conspicuous in the recovery, as was Pa
cific Mall and Chicago Great Western preferred "A."
Prices again fell off presently, stop-loss orders were
reached In some cases, and commission houses sold
freely. Twin City Rapid Transit dropped 4, while
Sugar. Lead. People's Gas, Federal Steel and Omaha
sagged to the lowest. Houses with Washington con
nections were watched narrowly with a view of get
ting some Intimation by their dealings as to ths
treaty's chances, but no decided tendency one way or
the other could be detected. Toward midday the
market again worked UDward. with minn- n.Hi,
depression, but gradually top figures were eenerally
reached. The Impression prevailed in some quarters
that the outburst of the Filipinos assured the treaty's
ratification, and on the theory that settlement of the
uncertainty would be beneficial there was buying of
stocks. On the other hand, many decided to reduce
their commitments over night as a precautionary
measure; and these contending Interests rave the
market Its appearance of Irregularity. The feverish
ness which prevailed In the early dealings in a meas
ure gradually disappeared as the day wore on. and
the middle and low-priced stocks sympathized in the
advancing tendency of gilt-edge stocks. In the final
dealings there were slight recessions from the best
prices.
The bond market showed marked heaviness In the
early transactions, but later improved In spots, clos
ing Irregular. United States old 4s coupon advanced
54. and the old 43 registered and the Ss 54, in the bid

A light run yesterday favored sellers and they
managed to keep prices fairly steady in the face of
a lower Chicago market. Sales, however, were slow.
There were no choice cattlo in and nothing to en
courage Eastern and export buyers. The best price
of the day was J5.20, paid for 20 fleshy cornfed na
tive steers, averaging 1.2S6 pounds. Some few early
sales were steady and Crm, but the close was dull
and weak. Cows were In light supply and the
killers steady and In fair demand, but low grades
dull and weak. Stockers and feeders sold fairly for
Monday, but mostly to speculators. Prices ruled
much the same as Friday. Range cattle, like na
tives, sold very well at the opening and brought old
prices, but the close was slow and weaker. Not
many milch cows 1n and demand fair and market
firm. Common, J1502O; medium to fair, J2502O. and

The run yesterday was light and most of the offer
ings in only medium to fair quality, quite a per cent
ot the arrivals being Indian and Southwest; hence
little to encourage trade and sales slow. Choice
heavy were about the same as Friday, but light and
medium weights were weak to 6c lower the last halt
ot the day. in sympathy with declines east ot us.
Packers were all out in the yards and in a quiet
way made fair purchases, and by the close most ot
the fresh arrivals had been disposed of. The extreme

OF INTEREST TO STOCKMEN
HXCH FEWER CATTLE OX FULL'
FEED THAX EXPECTED.
Grave Fears for Cattle In the Wests
Owing to the Severe Weather
Yesterday's Visitors at the
Yards With Stock.
It has been known for some time in a
general way that the number of cattle on
full feed In the AVest was much shorter
than last year, and the general belief in
this wa3 largely responsible for the higher?
prices of the best class of cattle of late.
The Drovers" Telegram has been asking
for Information on this subject for the past
week, and printed yesterday its first batch
of answers to its inquiries. It appears
from them that the shortage in full fed
cattle Is even much lighter than generally
credited by the trade. In Kansas, tha
counties of Barton. Clay. Cherokee and
Jefferson report only 20 per cent as many
cattle on full feed as last year, and fewer
cattlo being roughed through. In the coun
ties of Cloud and Dickinson there Is said
to be only 23 rer cent as many
as last year on full feed. Geary. Sumner,
Washington. Marshall and Morris claim
40 to 45 per cent as many cattle on full
feed as a vpar n-ro. whlli, Harner. Jewell.
Mitchell, Russell and "Wilson say they have
SO per cent as many. In Missouri, as well
as Kansas, there Is a general shortage,
though it is not so marked as in Kansas.
Atchison, Hickory and Johnson say they
have 50 per cent as many cattle on full
feed as last year. Cass, Clay and DeKalb
claim 73 per cent as many, while Davles
and Lawrenco say they have but 33 1-3 pec
cent as many.
Tamblyn & Tamblyn had a letter from
J. T. Spears, of Quanah. Tex., yesterday
in which he says cattle are wintering well
In that section. But little snow and no
loss so far. B. T. "Wear, of Amarillo. Tex.,
says cattle are doing well and wintering
better than last year.
Colonel A. W. Glllett. who Is running "
George S. Tamblyn's farm for him in Linn -county,
says cattle In that section ara
doing very well. About the usual number
are being roughed through, but very- few
cattle being on full feed.
DENVER. Feb. 6. "The live stock own
ers will be heavy losers on account of tha
continued storms In the mountains and out
in tne plains." said President J. V. Spring
er, of the National Live Stock Association.
in speaking or the results of the last few
days. "Reports which we received from
our horse ranch in Montana to-day shove
that tho temperature up there Is 4o below
zero, and the outlook is not bright for
warmer weather. Down in Texas cattle aro
dying by the thousands. A heavy rain
has been followed by a long-continued wind
storm, and the cattle got chilled and have
been dying for several day a on account
of the cold."
Mr. Springer says that soon as practic
able he will have the secretary of the asso
ciation telegraph to all the principal live)
stock regions of the "West and a bulletin
will be Issued showing the extent of tha
losses. Me cas very grave fears that the
West is now passing through an experience
almost as disastrous as that ot the winter
of 1SS6.
LINCOLN, NEB.. Feb. 6. The stats
board of agriculture has begun to receive
reports touching the stock losses In tho
states as a result of the late severe weather.
The indications are that much loss has
been sustained by both cattle and sheep
owners. The weather has been unprece
dently severe for the past two weeks, con
cluding with the blizzard of February 2 and
3. During this period thousands of sheep)
perished of the cold In all parts ot the
state. These sheep were principally bandi
that had been brought in from the South
during the past summer for feeding pur
poses and had not become Inured to tha
rigors of the Nebraska winter.

Kansas Shorthorn breeders, will be held

Genesis of the Manhattan CocktalL
From tho New Orleans Times-Democrat.
"The Manhattan cocktail Is a delightful
appetizer when properly prepared." said a
local connoisseur in the art of living, "but
it Is easily ruined by unskillful hands. It
is the Invention, by the way, of a native
of New Orleans, nnd the story of Its origin
Is rather curlou3.. Tears ago Colonel Joe
"Walker was In Now York and went on a
little yachting trip with a party of friends.
By some oversight the liquid refreshments
in the Icebox were confined to Italian ver
mouth and plain whisky, and It occurred to
the colonel that a palatable drink might
be made by mixing the two. The result
was so good that he experimented a lit
tle on his return to New Orleans, and soon
perfected the Manhattan cocktail as it la
known to-day. It was. christened In honor
of his friends on Manhattan island, and
tho fame of the decoction soon spread all
over the country. The truo Manhattan
cocktail Is always made with Italian ver
mouth, but at half the places where they
undertake to serve It French vermouth ia
substituted, and the fine flavor Is alto
gether destroyed. Jtench vermouth is a
sort of wine, while Italian vermouth Is a
cordial pure and simple. They are as dif
ferent as milk and molasses. A cocktail
made from the French brand Is no mors
a .Manhattan than it is a Spanish ome
lette." A Great Man's DIMcnlty.
From the Washington Star.
""When I made a Joke the other day,"
remarked Senator Sorghum, "nobody,
laut-hed."
"That's true."
"And when I made a serious speech, Z
awoke the hilarity ot a nation."
"It seems so."
"Well. I give It tip. I don't, know which
Is harder: trying to be funny, or tryins
not to."
A Texas Hanging.
This Is how a Dallas fTex.1 renorter
