Other Western Lines Find
They Have Been Toyed
Unless It Can Be Formed
With This Road on the
it Is Doubtful That It Would
Go Into Such an Agree
Chicago. Dec 17.— Western
lines have alioat given up all hopu of
forming an association with the Cana
dian Pacific as a member. That line,
Prom all appearances, has been playing
with the other roads, and at no time has
it enterialnad serious thought of enter
ing into .in association with the others.
It announced today that if an agree
ment was reached on the west-bound
emigrant traffic, that agreement must
stand by itself, without reference to
any other arrangements Hie lines might
have. This means that the Canadian
Pacific hud no intention of joining the
general association, and a meeting of
the other lines was called to consider
the advisability of forming an associa
tion, with that road on the outside. The
trouble in forming this sort of an nsso
tion is expected to come from the lireat
Northern, which may decline to enter
any association of which the Canadian
Pacific is not also a member. With
both 1! ese lines on the outside a trans
continental passenger association would
practically be out <>t the question.

A.lumber of the general passenger

General Traffic Manager Finiey, of tin:
Great Northern, was found at his desk
yesterday after an absence at about a
week. The traffic manager*, lie says,
were trying to adjust tariffs, but after a
long session adjourned without accom
plishing anything. They were not. like
the passenger agents, tryine to form an
association, but simply making an effort
to tret rates on a remunerative basis.
There had been no such meeting for the
last two years, and the freight rates
have reached that point where there

After a Firmer Opening
Weakness Ruled the
Grain Markets.
Had Its Effect in Discourag
ing Longs—Provisions
Make Gains.
Trading Dull Throughout the
Day, With Dealings Ir
Chicago, Dec. 17.—Wheat went
down today under a heavy increase in
the visible supply, May closing %c
lower. May corn closed ,a 4 e and May
oats } 4 'c lower, but provisions made
slight gains.
The wheat market at the opening
showed a firmer tone than toward thn
close of Saturday's session. The short
sellers appeared to have discounted on
Saturday an expected 1,500,000 bushels
increase in the visible, and the better
feeling among the longs was due to a
decided falling off in the Northwestern
receipts and to encouraging cables from
Liverpool. There was a tendency
toward a decline shortly after the start,
when Minneapolis stocks were reported
845,000 bushels heavier than on Monday
last, or 100,000 bushels more than Satur
day's advices from there had led to the
expectation. The light dip in prices.how
ever, was soon recovered Iron). The
visible soon gare such evidence as in
duced the expectation of a much heavier
increase than had been looked
for, and that put an extinguisher upon
what began to assume the appearance
of a very strong market. May, which
opened at from sS,%<gsS&c, had grad
ually improved until it reached s'Jc, but
as the huge increase, which laueily
was continued, began to deepen its
shadow on the market the underlying
feeling gradually oozed out, and about
an hour from the end of the session the
price was down to 5S>aC. The later
cable news was rather in favor of the
bulls. The day's primary market re
ceipts were also giving encouragement
to holders. In the last half hour the
effect of a 2,000,000 bu increase in the
visible at such a late time of the year
whs making itself more effectually felt,
and the buying was overwhelmed by
the selling Mders: the price dropped
for an instant to 58^C and closed with
sellers at [email protected]%c.
Corn opened with sellers a shade un
der the price which was bid at the close
Saturday, and it gradually sank until
it had declined V 2 c under the highest
price paid at the start. The wet weather
which was to be of so much service to
the bulls had turned into a dry frost.
The receipts are somewhat over the
estimates. The amount ou ocean pass
age increased 320,000 bu last week, and
the visible supply showed an increase
of 1,170,000 bu against 500,000 bu in
crease on the year before. May opened
at 5O' a c, touched 4'J35,c, and closed at
49 ■„ c.
In oats the sympathy existing with
the corn market was great. The ele
vator concerns were offering quite
freely. May started at 'Z2%@32%c, sold
down to 32#c, closing at that figure.
Provisions were firm. but the improve
ment in price which was established did
not produce any activity in the trading.
Instead of 47,000 hogs, as estimated on
Saturday, only 37.000 were received.
Pork, lard and ribs each started at a
good advance, and held it fairly well in
the face of weak wheat and corn mar
kets. Estimated receipts of hogs for to
morrow of only 27,000 helped in keeping
the market firm. At the close the ad
vances established were as follows:
Pork, 10c; lard and ribs, each sc.

Sew Yorli.
New York, Dec. 17. — The week
opened oil the stock exchange with a
heavy tone to business and a stagnant
market. Trading continued dull all
day, and the dealings were irregular
throughout. London was a small seller
of St. Paul and some other of the in
ternal stocks, but the transactions for
the foreign account had little or no ef
fect upon speculation, Sugar and Gas
were the only Btocks which displayed
any activity. Sugar, which closed on
Saturday at 92, was quoted at the open
ing "3,200 shares from !)2,V to 91}^."
The latter figure was the lowest point
touched during the day. and with oc
casional light reactions on the way up
the stock reached 9: J>%> shortly before
noon. Then came a decline to 92^ and
a rally to 1)3, the closing price being
92%', a gain of %on the day. The buy
ing iv the stock was by houses with
Washington connections, but there was
no news regarding the trust, favorable
or unfavorable. A renewal of the ru
mors touching the Chicago Gas forth
coming dividend depressed the stock of
the company. An offer was made, with
out rinding any takers, to sell the divi
dend on any part of 54,000 shares
at 1 per cent cash. The shares de
clined l)i per cent in the early trad
ing, recovering % again and makiiitr a
rally of '6% in the tinal sale's the net loss
being >£ per cent. Lake Shore broke
\y A per cent on the sale of 100 shares,
and Rock Island dropped 2 per cent on
the gale of 200 shares. The grangers
moved within very narrow limits and
were lightly traded in,losing on the day
% for Northwest and % for Burlington
and Rock Island, St. Paul gaining \±.
Edison Electric, of New York, declined
1 per cent. The other changes, com
pared with the final sales of Saturday,
are merely fractional. Lead is dowu X.
and Denver & Rio Grande common and
preferred %, while Reading is up %. A
better tone was apparent in the late
dealings, and the market closed quiet,
but firm.
There was a fair amount of trading in
the bond market, and as a rule the more
active issues were quoted lower. Among
the inactive mortgages there was a bet
ter tone, and some material advances
were recorded. Southern 5s were most
prominent in the transaction, and fig
ured for $134,000. St. Louis and San
Francisco cousol 4s, $104,000. and Kan
sas and Texas seconds. $100,000. The
total sales for the day were $1,334,000.
The principal changes were:
Advances — Oregon Navigation 5s
trust receipts, '6% percent; Cleveland
& Canton firsts, 3; Atlantic & Pacific
48, 2%.

q Wheat sold up 3-« c early in the day,
but the advance was later lost. The
large increase in the visible supply was
,a; disappointment to the longs and
tnrned the market down. The export
.demand was also light. The visible
supply in the United States now
amounts to BS, 172,000 bu. A New York

and 8,000 bu No. 1 hard Duluth 3^c over

The poor class of low grade wheat
was dull aud neglected. Other grades
sold well. Receipts were comparatively
