COURSE OF THE WHEAT MAR KET WAS STEADILY DOWN WARD. KEPT PACE WITH STOCKS. SOMETHING OF A PANICKY '.'-. FBKUXC. ALL OVER THE .. - - PIT. "" ARMOUR IS BUYING HEAVILY. Lonfl-H in a Hurry to Liquidate mill lite Short* in No Haste to Purchase. CHICAGO, Dec. Depression took possession' of wheat operators today at the opening of the session and gripped them so tight that there was no escape during the entire course. ' Compared with last night, wheat closed I I?b@lHc lower, corn \v- lower, oats ' s c I and provisions lo®l2^c lower. Wheat I op tied weak and finally became pan- I icky, selling off before noon Pie from the close last night, and there was no material reaction. The disastrous panic in stocks sot the pace for wheat, for. outside of that, the news was not much worse Chan yesterday. North western receipts were the smallest for some time, and while the rain had fillet! the ground with moisture there was some danger of a cold wave, which would hardly fail to injure it more or less. But the conditions abroad were such as to thoroughly demoralize it. There was a panic in American se curities in the English stock ex changes, where nearly everything American was being pressed for sale. This was soon reflected in the New York stock market. Gold shipments were expected to increase, confidence was speedily eliminated and the wheat . commenced to follow stocks. I. onus made haste to liquidate, so that before noon the price had dropped ITse from the close yesterday. Even the shorts, who had also profited, did not seem anxious to take, as the con ditions seemed to warrant the expec tation of getting more. So the down ward pace was easy and rapid. May sold early at 58^055?4c— being quite unsettled— sold quieklv to 5814fi oS'sc on buying by Armour, who is said to have taken over 1,000,000 bu; then Off to 5714 c, and at neon was 57V>c. i There was some reaction during the I last hour and May sold to 57 7 c, but I off to ."'..c, closing at 57%@57%c. Corn was heavy. Influenced chiefly by the slump In wheat. A falling off In I receipts served in a measure to cheek I the weakness. May sold from 28c to -.'■ 4 c. The market held quiet during the last hour and closed at 27% c. Oats were heavy, but without any serious break. May sold at ISVsC to l'X't \'->\^.-. There was a steady feeling I during the final hour, with May at ; 18%@19c. Provisions started weak on account ! of heaviness in grain. These features, continuing throughout the session, ' prevented any but a very limited ' change in feeling. The reactions from i bottom prices of the day were small, j and th. close showed the following ' losses: Pork, 12^; lard, 5©7 1 / ic, and ! ribs. 7%c. ■ " } Estimates— Wheat, 170 cars; corn, 265; oats, 146; hogs, 19,000.

After his death this tribute to the honesty and integ rity of Judge Thurman arises to beau tify his memory. The will, drawn- Oct. I 29, 1879, remains unchanged, with the exception of a codicil transferring 'his law library from a relative since de ceased, to a grandson, Albert Lee Thurman. To his daughters, Mrs. Cowles and Mrs* McCormick, he gives fifty books each, to be selected by them from his library. To his son, Al -1 len, he gives his surveying instru i ments of early days.

Railways; Industrial* anil Mlm ; ce'ilaueoiiN . SeeuvitleM ! Decline — •'?■. ?>- Three Failure;*. - NEW YORK, Dec. 20.— 1n a general way the average Wall street habitue was -'prepared, after .the close of busi ness yesterday, for probable depression in the stock market today on account of the Venezuelan message episode and the renewed heavy outward move ment of gold. The actual developments of the day accordingly caused a sensa tion in financial circles that has not been equaled since the Baring panic. In fact, in' some particulars, that gloomy event was overshadowed ■'.- in point of interest. ? The first shock came in the shape of a panicky market In American securities in London, with the declines extending to 5 per cent British consols also came lower? The successive cables reported great ex citement at that center and wholesale liquidation of the Industrial stocks at rapidly receding figures. Before the opening, however, it was definitely stated by gold shipping houses that $2,400,000 of the $5,000,000 which was ex pected to go out tomorrow would be arranged for today. .; J The combined influence of the develop ments noted' was reflected in a wild opening in the local stock and bond markets. Trading was very heavy from the outset, and in the initial deal ings -breaks occurred extending to 4% per cent in St. Paul. After a momen tary recovery of . 1 to 1% per cent a fresh outpouring of stocks occurred, which, . as in the case of the London selling, reflected chiefly liquidation by scared holders, and prices crumbled right and left. Stop orders were caught in large numbers, and this, of course, accelerated the downward movement. Slight rallies occurred several times during. the afternoon, but the con tinued-selling pressure swept them away. The lowest prices, extending to 15% per cent in Lead preferred were made around noon. Rubber preferred dropped 17% per cent. Other of the extreme declines were in Consolidated Gas, 13; Louisville & Nashville and St. Paul, 10%; Rock Island and Kansas & Texas, preferred, 9%; Metropolitan Traction, 12; Rubber common, 10%; General Electric, 9%; New Jersey Cen tral and St. Paul & Omaha, 9; Sus quehanna & Western preferred, 8%; Sugar and Manhattan, 8%; Tennessee Coal and Laclede Gas, 8%; Lake Shore and Lead common, and Lake Erie j & Western, 8; Michigan Central, North western, Missouri Pacific. and Burling ton, 7%; Chicago Gas, 7%, and Dele ware, Hudson and Pullman, 7. =A great many declines, material but less extensive than the ones noted, occurred In other stocks-. Incidental to the fail ures of S. S. Sands & Co., Nich'ofs-?? Frothingham & Co. and De Neufville & Co., which were announced. Sales of ' scurities under the rule were made. . . yy • .^ The volume of business was on ?a tremendous scale. Dealings in the first half hour registered 141,484 shares, and' in the first hour 243,135 shares. Trad ing in bonds was also on at almost -a correspondingly large scale, and ,the losses ranged up to 25 in Wisconsin^ Central trust receipts. The unfavorable: general conditions affecting the specu- I lation were aggravated by sensational I advances in the call money market. ; j l The first figure quoted was 6, andj-by* I 12:40 the price was bid up to 25. Large? sums were loaned at and between? these figures. ,The sterling exchange; market also ruled firm and higher, actual rates for demand rising %d over yesterday's rates, while several leading firms advanced posted quotations for sight bills to $4.90%. Towards 1 o'clock the selling pressure abated and a sharp rally in prices occurred, followed by a reaction, in which a large part of the Improvement was lost on a jump in call money to 80 per cent, the highest I figure. of the day. A break to 6 per I cent stimulated liberal buying in the last hour, causing recoveries from the ! extreme low price ranging up to 11 per cent in Lead preferred, and in the more active shares up to 6 in Manhattan. Near the close money again stiffened to 50, and closed at that figure. This fact caused recessions from the im provements noted and contributed to an irregular closing. The market left off unsettled at net declines extending to 8% per. cent in St. Paul. The aggre gate sales were 743,276 shares, includ ing 118,700 in Sugar and 100,500 in St. Paul. .-•- ■ ._■: :-.- The sales of stocks Included: Amer ican Tobacco, 37,200; Atchison, 31,400; Burlington, 47,700; Chesapeake & Ohio. i 5,300; Chicago Gas, 36,500; Consolidated i Gas, 6,000; Delaware & Hudson. 4,000; Denver & Rio Grande preferred, 6,700; Distilling and Cattle Feeding. 28,100; General Electric, 7,100; Kansas & Texas preferred, 9,700; Laclede Gas, 3,200; Louisville & Nashville, 19,100; L., N.

The railway and miscellaneous bond market was In as demoralized a con dition as the share market, and heavy blocks of bonds were thrown over on liquidating orders. The foreign selling was very large, and the International Issues sustained material losses. In this class Kansas & Texas seconds dropped 13% to 45%, with a subsequent recovery of half of the loss. Wis consin Central trust receipts fell off to 33, and closed at 36. Sales of Kan sas & Texas seconds were made under the rule for the account of one of the failed firms. In sympathy with the stock market there was a sharp rally in the late afternoon, the recovery! in prices reaching 6 per cent. Dealings were on a heavy scale, aggregating 33,478,000, or about three times the re cent dally average. Governments sagged sharply on sales of $20,000. Staje , bonds were heavy, particularly ' for Virginia centuries. The dealings footed up $50,000. ■- ' ■'.?: — " The following table shows the fluc tuations of the leading railway and Industrial stocks yesterday: r 'W Minnesota Iron 60-; Am.
