CHICAGO, Dec ".— Outsl<3e of a sensation
al spurt in December wheat, which took place
shortly after the opening, the grain and pro
visional markets were dull and uninterest
ing today. A jump of 3c in December on an
attempt to buy about 150, 0U0 bu streng
thened the belief that that option is very
securely "cornered." It closed 2V t c higher.
May was firm all day and closed %@%c
higher. Corn and oats closed fairly steady
at substantially yesterday's prices, and pro
visions elopfd a sade lower all around.
Wheat started off in a whirl of excitement.
Opening sales of both December and May
were at practically last night's closing fig
ures — 96c for the one, 83c for the other. It
soon developed there was some December
wanted, undoubtedly to fill shorts, with none
offering. On this account the price advanced
at once, December gutting to 99c and May
to DO'^c In the first fifteen minutes of the
session. The alleged bull clique stopped the
advance by selling only a small lot, less
than 50,000 bu, the big premium over May be- 1
ing against its policy, because if allowed to
stand it would turn wheat marketings all
this way. So the price fell back to 97% c
for the one and S2%c for the other.
Before the regular session commenced, the
feeling was nominally weak because of a
decline of %d at Liverpool and '/iTi%c at
Paris. Northwestern receipts were also con
siderably larger than Tuesday of last week,
the arrivals today being 704 ears against 452
last year, and 1,040 last Tuesday. The trade
bad in mind two stfrring facts, however, one
that the alleged bull clique had been a big
buyer of calls Monday afternoon and the
morning newspapers told of freight room be
ing engaged at Boston for 1,500,000 bu of
wheat for January and February shipment.
This was construed to mean that when the
line of December wheat was delivered to the
bull clique here it would ship it abroad by all
rail to the seaboard if the water route was
closed. It was semi-offlcially given out that
the short line for December in the market
was over 11.000,000 bu, with less than 3,000,000
bu of contract in store here today. May was j
well supported at S9-?4c, the enormous export I
clearances— on equivalent of 1,032,000 bushels |
of wheat— tending to create nervousness on |
the part of the shorts and a report that j
Franco would yet require 50,000,000 bushels
of outside wheat was not calculated to allay
this feeling. Primary receipts at western
points were 879,000 bu, but the shipments
were also large, 841,000 bu, nearly 600,000 of
it from Duluth— all at the latter point having
been sold to Chicago elevator men, Eastern
shippers and exporters.
At 12 o'clock May was 90c, December 9S^c.
Up to within fifteen minutes of the close the
market held very firm, with narrow trading.
Efforts were then made to break the price
below calls and May was sent down to 83% c,
closing at S9%@?ic b'.a. December closed at
»B%c.
Corn was dull, but firm all day mainly in
sympathy with wheat. Offerings were more
moderate, and the demand from shorts more
general which kept prices a fraction higher
most of the session. There was some buy
ing in expectation of a reaction after the re
cent decline. Receipts were liberal, 654 cars
The visible supply figures were corrected to
read 1.109.0C0 bu decrease, instead of 2,109 010 I
as officially announced yesterday. Clearances j
were 640,000 bu. The close was easier fol
lowing the little break in wheat near the end.
May ranged from 25%(g28%c to 28% c, closing a
shade lower at 28^4@28%c. Oats were firm and '
higher. The market, however, was extremely j
dull and without interesting features. The 1
Btrength in wheat and corn was sufficient '
with the slack trade, to cause prices to ad
vance. Elevator concerns and commission
houses did all the buying, while the selling
was scattered. Receipts werp posted at 597
cars. Seaboard clearances were 267,000 bu
May ranged from 22>^c to 22% c, and closed a
shade higher at 22% c.
Provisions, though very aull, ruled firm and
a little higher until nc v the close. Receipts
of hogs were smaller than expected and this
with a fair local and outside demand, caused
a Blight advance. Toward the close the mar
ket became easier on realizing by local oper
ators and the advance was lost. January
pork closed 2%c lower at $8.30; January lard
a shade lower at $4.27%?» ; 4.30, and January
ribs a shade lower at $4.22%®4.2. : ;. Estimated
receipts Wednesday: Wheat. 245 cars; corn
450; oats. 315; hogs. 43.000 head.

MINNEAPOLIS. Dec. 7.— The early market
did not lack a stimulant this morning and
as a consequence Initial transactions were
strong, higher and active, and so ruled up
to midseesion, after which the market was
very quiet, but at no time weak up to noon.
The stimulant was In the form of a wild curb
market iv Chicago, which indicated a little
squeeze in the December option in that mar
ket and more or less reflected In the May
future. There was, however, a counter ir
ritant from Liverpool, showing a decline and
very dull markets in London and Paris. This
caused our local traders to act with caution,
and while the December wheat at Chicago
advanced from 96c to 99% c, our markets only
advanced from 87V s (!TBS%c, and in leei than
15 minutes their judgment was Indorsed by
the reaction In Chicago to 97c. This flurry
In December affected the May future, caus
ing a steady and strong market at a good
advance over yesterday.
December wheat opened at 87% c, against
87%e yesterday, advanced to 88% c and sold
at 88% cby noon. May wheat opened at 87c,
against 86%0 yesterday, advanced sharply
to 87% c. lost %c, gained %c, sold at 88c, and
declined to 87% cby noon. The cash wheat
market was active and stronger today. Re
ceipts were liberal but the demand good. Low
grades were in demand at a relatively higher
price, and by noon the sample tables were
cleared. Receipts here were 529 cars; ship
ments, 129 cars.
During the noon hour the market was
quiet with no particular feature other than a
nervous feeling that something may turn up.
Trading was "next to nothing." December
wheat closed at S9c and May at 87%@87%c.

Flour— Quotations remain the same. Trade
is fairly good, and as far as can be learned
millers are asking more than prices quoted.
The property is worth more when the price

MAJfKATOJ ASSIGNMENT.
A Result of th.^ Repent Failure of
Mr. Willard.
Special to the Globe
MANKATO, Minn., Dec 7.— The Mankato
Knitting mills, owned by J. A. and C. K.
Willard, filed a deed of assignment today.
The liabilities are estimated at $85,0C0. The
mills started five years ago, and gave employ
meat to a large number of people. The
recent assignment of John A. Willard is the
cause of this crash.

NORTHERN PACIFIC VP NET POINT.
Large and Aggressive Operations
Reflected in the Action of the
Market — Bonds Higher.
NEW YORK, Dec. 7.— Today's stock mar
! ket displayed noteworthy strength through- |
out the day and the demand for stocks was !
broader and more widely diffused through the '
| list than has been the case in a long time.
j There was hesitancy at the opening, prob- ;
< ably induced by the lower prices from Lon
; don and some of the stocks which developed
I most aggressive strength later showed small
| losses at the opening. This was notably true
' in the cases of Louisville and Atchison pre- I
i ferred. The early strength in the market
j was In fact most notable in the specialties.
There was a scramble of competing orders in
j Sugar, which carried that security up 2%
per cent in the first fifteen minutes of trad
ing. It dropped 2 points almost as quiek
j ly on offerings to realize. The largest gains j
! in the first hour were all in the specialties, j
I Southern preferred was the first of the rail- |
i road stocks to attract marked attention and ■
| the price was advanced a point. New Jer- |
j sey Central also showed a tendency to re- j
| cover from its recent weakness, though its j
tone was rather feverish. This and the
irregularity of Sugar checked the advance
! and activity of the market at times and there
were several periods of dullness on slight
reactions during the day.
It was not until the afternoon that the
j strength of the railroad list became aggres
! sive and general, the Southern and South
western roads being most conspicuous and
holding their gains most firmly. Burlington
advanced at one time a point, but reacted
j a point before the close, and the grangers
I and Western stocks did not compare favorably
I in strength with those in the Southern region,
I which tcday began to feel the influence of
j the remarkable showing of gains in gross re
! ceipts for the fcurth week in November,
| which have been reported during the week
by the roads in that region. Even Northern
1 .Pacific does not respond as readily, though
| its preferred stock gained a point net on a
', fourth week statement, that shows an in
crease in earnings over the corresponding
week last ye ar of $354,770, which is only a
I shade less than 100 per cent. The compari
i son, however, is with a week of not very
! large earnings last year. The statement for
' November of the New York Central was
: regarded as disappointing, the increase be
ing only $78,000, as comparing with a month
of not very heavy earnings last year. Great
Northern for November showed an increase
! of $32«.135. and Illinois Ci ntral $664, 5G1. The
. market was hdped also by the dividend de
| clarations announced today and these in prcs
pect.
The street was full of rumors regarding the
dividend en Sugar, but no authoritative an
nouncement accompanied any of them. The
action of the market reflected very distlnct
, ly the large and aggressive oper-
a tions of manipulative combinations,
and there was very little out
j side interest manifested in the stock di
\ ision of the market. London, besides mark
| ing down prices before the opining here, sold
i stocks very persistently in this market, not-
I ably St. Paul.
The bond market continued to reflect a very
\vldo and varied inquiry and continually
■ brcacUning demand. Some sharp gains were
led during the d;iy «nd prices in all
t cases were higher. Total salt*, $4.i I.

FOREIGN FINANCIAL.
NBW YORK, Dec. 7.— Evening Post's Lon
don cablegram: Except for home rails and
Argentines, which were firm, the stock mar
kets here were lifeless today. A further
large sum was borrowed from the Bank of
England today. Much interest is felt as to
the prcbable announcement tomorrow by the.
Indian council as to the resumption of the
weekly drawings. It is generally believed
I that they will be resumed, but very gradually.
I Americans opened dull on newspaper criti
| cisms of President McKlnley's message, one
• and all reflecting no great admiration; still
1 operations in Americans here are now so
i pmall as scarcely to be a factor. As New
York bought this afternoon, the market closed
firm. Southern Railway preferred was strong
on dividend rumors. Mexican rails, which
had risen sharply on reports that -freight
rates were to be raised by the government
I because of the fall in silver, relapsed on the
1 belief that the government would not allow
j the value of silver to influence the matter
further. The Paris bourse was irregular and
! the Berlin market was dull. The Bank of
France is chareing a premium of 3 per millo
to prevent gold exports.

JUDGE KILLS HIMSELF.
JuHtice Buck, of the Supreme Court
at Mo 11 tan 11.
HELENA, Mont., Dec. 7.— Judge
Horace R. Buck, associate justice of
the supreme court of Montana, shot
himself throughout the right eye about
midnight at his h rri" in Lenox, a sub
urb of Helena. He had spent the
evening with a party of friends at a
neighbor's house, seeming very cheer
ful. After chatting for a while with
t his family he went to his room and
soon afterwards the shot that ended
his life was heard. His wife ran up
stairs and found him lying on the floor
dead.
The Judge had been breaking down in
health for some time and it is expected
he was seized with a sudden impulse to
end his uneasiness. He was forty-four
years of age, a native of Vicksburg,
Miss., and a graduate of Yale. He
came to Montana in 1879.

FREIGHT MEN WORRIED.
Steamnliip Fl«ht May Involve the
Western Roadx.
CHICAGO, Dec.' 7.— The "Western
freight men are much disturbed over
the news that the fight between the
Mallory line of steamships and the
Lone Star line has broken out again.
The trouble between these lines has
been the cause of the low rates that
hay been made in trans-Missouri and
in transcontinntal rates, and now,
with the trouble broken out in renewed
force, the roads are fearful that they
will be compelled to reduce their rates
still further. It is said that In some in
stances freight has been carried by
the steamship lines from New York to
i Gulf of Mexico ports for 2 cents per
100. This gives a through rate to the
Pacific coast and to Colorado points,
which the Western roads cannot hope
to equal, and, if the steamship com
panies keep it up for any length of
time, the roads will have to allow
their traffic to go from them or carry
It at a loss.
Acting on the reports of the low
rates made by the steamship lines, the
railroads late today announced that
they would make the rates of $1.04
first-class and 65 cents second-class
