CHICAGO, Dec. 3.— Boih the May ana >>e
cember futures in wheat closed today at
substantially unchanged prices. Figures on
the B tocka yet In farmers* hands and rumors ,
of forthcoming heavy shipments to Chicago 1
played havoc with prices for a while, but the |
1 xport engagements came to the rescue. Corn
was weak and closed %@%c lower. Oats
and provisions showed very iittle change at
the close.
Wheat started nrm at 90M,®90',4c for May
and at 95?»c for December, advances of %c
and %c respectively. May socn after ad
vanced to Bo%c, on moderate buying by local
shorts and by houses with foreign connec
tions. The strength was due mainly to the
action of the Liverpool market, which opened
with a slight decline, but was back to yes
terday's closing quotations before trading
crunmenced here. In the course of a few
minutes more the Liverpool prices had
further advanced to from Vid to %d gain
for the day. The Northwestesn receipts still
held at a volume too great for any confirma
tion of the claims made that farmers' deliv
eries in the Northwest had materially de
-i^Vaied. On the other hand, Beerbohm was
reported to have made a final estimate of the
quantity of wheat grown in the world this i
year, which mada it 160,(00,0:0 bu short of (hat
f the year previous, and 138,000,01.0 bu less
than the world's r-rop in 181*1, in which yea!
the United States and Canada raised the
heaviest crop in their history.
The export clearances keep up in a remark
able manner. Six ports cleared nearly 700,
--: win-a: and flour, for the day. The
estimate on stocks. Northwest markets, is
an increase of 650,000 bu at Minneapolis and
a decrease of 750,000 bu to 1,000,000 bu at
Duluth. Minneapolis and Duluth received
7.".9 ears against 498 last year. Chicago re
ceipts were 146 cars. Thoman's crop report
came out during the morning. It claimed
that the anio-unt of winter wheat seeded this
fall was 76 per cent in excess of the area
harvested last summer and that 48 per cent
pf the crop— equal to 275,000,000 bu— was still
In tkind, which is 90,000,000 bu more than at
1 !iis time !ast year, and would leave as avail
able for export up to July next 115,000,000 bu.
:he statement was so bearish that, although
- was vigorously denounced, it caused eharp
iquidation, and a decline in May to 89i/6c
Jven Decemiber, which had sold up to 9Sc
inder good buying was let go of in quantities
.ufflcient to cause a break to 94i£c. There
vere renewed reports that the accumulation
I 500 cars at Minneapolis was for the pur
ose of bringing wheat to Chicago In the
,;vent of navigation closing soon.
After midday the market was better sup
wrted. New York reported 60 loads taken for
•xport. This stimulated buying toward the
:lose, and May rallied to 90c. It was selling
it 89% cat the close and December at 95c.
Corn was very heavy and readily sympa
thized with the downward tendency in wheat,
vheu that market was declining, but did not
0 readily Incline to follow the latter on its
atcr advance. The selling was the same
lind as yesterday, by elevator people and pro
sssionals, with come December liquidation,
ieceivers reported country offerings liberal.
Mearances were 888,000 bu. Receipts were
!6o cars. May ranged from 28% cto 28% c,
dosing %@Vic lower at 2S%c. Covering by
norts caused the late rally. Oats were weak
r and K@ftc lower early, but rallied and
■losed with only %c decline. There was
•onsiderable selling of a general nature while
•'heat was en the decline, but offerings were
airly well taken a.nd the market easily re

MINNEAPOLIS GRAIN.
MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 3.— The local tr%de
felt a little hopeful this morning at the open-
Ing, feeling assured that all conditions war
rg^jfrd a firm stand. They reckoned without
tWfr hosts: the enemy was too strong. The
traders had not taken Into consideration tlie
silent force of electricity, combined with ex
pert figurers with powerful imaginations.
Prices for May wheat held within l-16c of a
cent from 0:30 to 10:20 a. m., then dropped
sharply a full %c with another drop of %c
within ten minutes, thereafter— caused by a
flash light on Mr. Thoman's brain giving
the outline of figures as to what the farmers'
bins contained. The gossip of the day in
clined to keep up the scare regarding the
December deal. Today we are advised that
the deal is now nearing its climax. The next
three weeks will be critical ones, the last
week of this month will see the crisis. It is
such gossip ns t'«e above that retards all
speculative venture..
inber wheat opened at BS%c, against
yesterday; advanced to 88%@8844c
dropped to BS%c, firmed up %c, declined to
87% c, gained %o lost %c, and gained %c by
noon. May wheat opened at 88c against 87%
@87% c yesterday, gained l-16c, *i remained
steady for an hour, slid to 87 l-16c, firmed
up to 87i4<f87%c, sold at 87 1 / 4@B7^4c and
gained l-16c by noon. The cash wheat market
was dull for all grades. Receipts here were
599 cars; shipments, 55 cars.
The market during the noon hour was weak
the greater part of the time, firming up a
little towards the close. The feeling is weak
with mystery the cause. December wheat
closed at 88c and May at 87% c.

OTHER GRAIN MARKETS.
GRAIN GOSSIP.
Gossip by private wire to C. H. F. Smith
& Co., St. Paul, members of the New York
stock exchange and Chicago board of trade:
Modern Miller: Wheat in the Western
states, north of Oklahoma, was treated to a
snow yesterday. In the Miss.M.ippl ani Ohio
valley the tender plajtf was put to the ttst
of a hard freeze, which couid not benefit it
any and doubtless Injured it to somj ex
tent. The plant has had a very ranis growth
and is very tender. Its true condition will
not be known until after a thaw. The '..our
trade in the East and abroad has shown im
provement, while in 'he South and on the
Pacific coa&t business was incline} to dull
ness, and the volume transacted was small.
Feedstuff s, including spot corn, continue in
brisk demand.
London — Wheat, off coast, nothing doln?;
on passage, buyers and sellers apart. Corn,'
off coast, nothing doing; on passage, rather
easier. Paris steady; December, sc 'higher;
January, 20c higher; December flour, 5c low
er; January, unchanged. French country mar
kets steady.
Since July 1 to Nov. 29 the receipts of
wheat at Minneapolis and Duluth have been
70,300,000 bu, and for the same time last year
they were 69,900,000 bu, and in 1895 73,400,000
bu. Considering the incentive to ship wheat
to terminal points on account of the premium
for cash, the above showing is not 80 bearish
as would seem to be the case with the talk
there has been of the large Northwestern re
ceipts.

NEW YORK DRY GOODS.
NEW YORK, Dec. 3.— A flurry of orders,
the direct result of the announcement of the
reduced prices in cotton prints and other lines
is recorded in the dry goods market. This
however, it Is believtji, is not a radical move
ment for better traue so much as the re
lease of orders which have been held for the
announcement of the threatened reductions.
Store traders were not so much in evidence
as was expected tcday. either at first hand
or in the secondn*- • market, but mail orders
were somewhat more numerous with the
aggregate result quite gratifying to sellers.
In staple cottons there is less activity than
in other lines. In print cloths there has been
a number of bids registered for extras at
2% for February deliveries, but sellers will
not part with goods for this late delivery
at this price. .

THORN SENTENCED.
Murderer of Onldensnppe to Die
Early in January.
NEW YORK, Dec. 3.— Martin Thorn,
or Torceswisky, convicted on Monday
of the murder of William Gulden
suppe. was today sentenced to be elec
trocuted in the week beginning Jan. 10,
IS9B.
When Thorn was brought into court
in L.ong Island City he stepped as
briskly, walking between two officers,
as he had done on the days when he
was on trial. He preserved the same
calm, impurturbable expression of
countenance that he had worn at every
crisis in the working out of his fate
during the trial and when, as a pre
liminary to the placing of the sentence
of death, Justice Maddox put the cus
tomary questions to him, he responded
promptly, collectedly and without out
ward evidence of emotion.
"My true name," said the murderer,
"is Torceswisky. I was born in Ger
many and am thirty-five years old. I
am a barber and have never been in
prison before. I was brought up in the
religious belief of the Roman Catholic
church. I can read and write. My
father is living. I am not married.
Then Judge Maddox proceeded to
pass sentence solemnly and impress
ively. He said:
"Thorn you were indicted charged
with having premeditated and deliber
ately designed and caused the death of
William Guldensuppe. You have had a
fair trial, in the course of which you
were defended by the ablest and most
astute counsel. They could not have
done more for you. Every effort was
made by them to save you. After that
the jury found you guilty of murder in
the first degree and the punishment
for that is death.
"Reflect upon it. Reflect upon the
death of him whom you slew. It is
the duty of the oourt to fix a time for
the execution — the law pronounced the
punishment. I shall give you a rea
sonable time — the: law permits me to do
that. It is needless for me to state
anything touching th© facts in this
case, more than to say that the evi
dence justifies the verdict.
"The judgmentof the court is that
you shall be taken hence to the state
prison at Sing Sing within a reason
able time and- that there you shall be
executed in the form prescribed by
law in the week beginning Jan. 10,
1898." I"
Thorn listened ; -without moving a
muscle, and when the judge had fin
ished he inclined Ihis head slightly for
ward as If bowing- to the court. The
prisoner's lawyers then handed up an
affidavit applying for an appeal. Jus
tice Maddox took the affidavit and will
pass on it later.
After consultation with Judges Mad
dox and Smith, District Attorney
Youngs has decided, it is eald, to ac
cept a plea of manslaughter in the
first degree for Mrs. Nack, the accom
plice of Martin Thorn in the murder
of William Guldensuppe, according to
the Herald. The extreme penalty for
this degree of crime is twenty years'
imprisonment, with a commutation of
seven years and seven months.
STOGK WST JIIX-UP
THE MOVEMENT OF PRICES IN THE
MAIN IRREGULAR AND
ERRATIC.
NO VERY MARKED TREND.
FINAL SPURT IN MANHATTAN
SAVED THE MARKET FROM
GENERAL LOSSES,
THE FIELD LEFT TO LIE FALLOW.
Outside Public and the Big Oper
ators Conspicuous by Their Ab
sence From the Pit.
NEW YORK, Dec. 3.— Outside buyers had
withdrawn from the market today and the
field was apparently left to lie fallow by the
large operators who have been prominent in
the manipulative movements of the week.
The heavy throwing over of stocks by large
operators yesterday to realize and by others
later to save losses, discouraged the outside
public. The bears were In evidence from
time to time today, but their offerings
seemed to be well absorbed without effecting
any marked declines, though there was no
evidence of any effort to mark up prices.
The action of the market suggests that large
operators may be attempting to pick up a
line cf stocks at the decline before pushing
prices again with the purpose to realize while
the public is still buying, as was done on
Monday, and again yesterday.
Sugar was exceedingly active all day and
acted In a very feverish manner. This was
partly duo to realizing on stock bought in an
ticipation of the treasury decision to apply the
countervailing duty to sugar Imported from
the Netherlands and partly to confusion of
mind as to how far the differential on re
fined sugar would inure to the benefit of the
Sugar trust.. A large portion of the specula
tion was taken up with this stock and the
offerings and the weakness increased as the
day progressed.
Union Pacific manifested some weakness at
times on account of the firmly expressed in
tention of the government to qualify as a
bidder at the Kansas Pacifio sales so as to
protect its interests if necessary by bidding
in the property. Denials were ateo offered
on behalf of the reorganization committee
that any agreement had been arrived at with
the g^rvernment for acquiring the subsidized
portion of the line In Kansas. There was
good support apparent for the stock notwith
standing this published news and the Kansas
Pacific consol 6a trust receipts were also
steadily held.
The wide and irregular movement of some
special stocks kept the general list very much,
unsettled during the day and it was difficult
to discern any marked general tendency la
the trading. London was again a seller of
stocks in this market to some extent. There
was little general news bearing on the situ
ation and the movement of prices was due
almost entirely to the technical causes. The
weekly statements of St. Paul and other roads
and the esibmated gross earnings of Rock
Island for November were regarded as favor
able, but had little effect on the market.
A late spurt of Manhattan to 105, a net rise
of 3 points, stiffened prices and brought many
of them above yesterday's closi'g level. Other
wise losses would have predominated. The
rise in Manhattan was due to a false rumor
that the underground rapid transit plan had
been declared unconstitutional.
In bonds business was somewhat curtailed
but still large. Prices held firm. The total
sales were $2,590,000. There was a net ad
vance in the bid price of U. S. 2s of % and
of the new 4s of %.
The total sales of stocks today were 313,000
shares, including: Atchison pfd, 3,930; Burl
ington, 19,263; L.. & N., 5,060; Manhattan L,

FOREIGN FINANCIAL.
NEW YORK, Dec. B.— Evening Post's Lon
don calblegram: The stock markets here
were stagnant and irregular today. English
rails were good during the day on better re
ports from the strike, but the close was un
certain on a report that the engineering env
ployees are to submit an ultimatum to the
men which it is feared may be refused.
Americana opened rather dull on New York
prices, but rallied later and showed consider
able backbone. The continued absorption of
bonds by New York Is almost phenomenal,
South, American stocks recovered yesterday's
fall. The market today had to pay for £.
-500,000 of India bills, thus causing a rise in
short money rates and fresh borrowing from
the Bank of England. It Is believed that the
bank haJJ temporarily acquired control of the
India money Just raised. Gold is 77e ll^d.
Today's sharp rise in the Berlin and Ham
burg discount markets surprised London. It
comes unusually early in the month. The
Paris bourse was firm on the buying of inter
national stocks and mines and the Berlin
market was quiet.
