CHICAGO. Jan. 2.—Wheat scored the'
highest price of the season today on
heavy general buying, but broke sharply
later on profit taking and closed weak,
May iic lower. Corn closed &«!*4c lower,
$oats. we liig.'ier and provisions practical
ly unchanged.
Wheat was irregular, excited and im
posing in vo'iuine. . A rough estimate'
based en the reports of two leading com
mission houses places the quantity of
wheat-- to change during the session a.t
15,00\C0tf bu. "May opened unchanged to J
%c lower, at" 77% cto 77c. The depressing !
factor was to be found in the delivery !
of 1,500,000 -.- bu on January, contracts. |
i There were no Liverpool quotations for |
futures, but the spot article on that j
market was strong. The initial selling
met' with a good, demand and within j
thirty minutes the weakness turned 1
stronger. Early sellers reinstated their |
lines and there was investment buying
on a large ■ scale from quarters hitherto \
out of the-market: The rally was helped
along by a decrease In the world's visible
Of 1,715,000 bu, by an advance of 6d in
flour at Liverpool and by a Minneapolis
report of. heavy flour sales. May soared
during the forenoon to 7Sc and" at this
point the demand lagged. Earlier sup
port was . withdrawn and those who of
fered to secure profits found difficulty in
finding takers. Under pressure of great
magnitude May broke sharply to 77Vic
and closed weak, .%c under Monday at

and Hour, were* equal to 1,000,000 bu.
Primary receipts aggregated 611,000 bu,

receipts. Jtf cars, and responding with
unwillingness to wheat when that mar
ket was at its best. May sold between
3i'.»e and 36% c and closed steady, Vs@M,c

Oats were active and the trade was
_ broader than it has been in months. The
demand, both local and outside, showed
considerable improvement. -May s old be- I

The fluctuations of wheat were In
fluential in determining prices, but while
the market responded readily enough to
the bulge on the big market, the answer
to the Jailer's weakness was less rea.lv
Receipts were 427 cars.
Provisions opened higher on an ad
vance at the yards and the fact that
there were no deliveries on January con
tracts. There was little outside support,
ho«vev. r. and selling by packers caused
a- reaction. The cloee was only fairly I
steady. May pork sold between $12.72%

any special increase In Hour sales, wuich
was a disappointment to the bulls, ana
induced some rea.l/.ing. The country wa 3
not a heavy buyer today. , • , '■
The market, turned weak on the (he
and lost lc from the (noon level, closing
well at the bottom for the day an X about
at opening prices. This lack of sup, o t
was generally accepted as an indication
that the advance, had been rather ire
and that less haste'would'make the basis
for an advance more secure. May w.ic;-t
closed at i •I.2''<77;;c, a loss from Monday,
based on closing prices.in outside mar
kets. July wheat closed at 78& c;
Cash wheat sold well in the top. grades;
but dragged in anything below good No.

were not buyers to any extent, but this
was offset by brisk demand- from the
third company. . James Marshall bought
the bulk of the No.. .1 northern. A 1
prices were .on higher range .in con

milling grades buyers''would hot follow
the bulges on all- trades. One cent under
May was the basis foe No. 1. No. 2
northern sold at 3 to 3'^ under, showing
prices varying between 7,2*.£ and 74% c- se
lected No. 2 selling to 2e: Tinder.. There
was some fair No. 3 wheat unsold late,
also poor low, grade. Low grades on .the
whole were well taken, at price's 3c to
5c higher than ruled on r Monday. The
best rejected brought 69 to '70c!, poorer
lots went above Gsc and' scarcely any

NEW- YORK. Jan—Z^Today's stock
market opened with f< "upward rush of
prices, .and closed With"'something- very
like a slump and with I} the list in a very
ragged condition in the matter of N6t
| £hang..'.s. The professional bear traders, •
I who had watched the* market for days
to detect the expected"turning point to
wards reaction, fell upon the market to
day with visor and enthusiasm. But the
professional bear operators have made
many mistakes in the last tew weeks,
and opinion is greatly divided in Wall
street tonight as to whether their time
has come. Certainly the market - today
showed an astonishingly large demand
I for stocks, and in the early dealings the
supply was sufficiently limited to cause
a _ volatile spurt of prices in a number
01 stocks. The general level of'the mar
ket was. in fact, lifted so considerably
as to offer very attractive profits even
on a day's turn, and a considerable vol
ume of the selling was undoubtedly due
to profit-taking. The ; realizing was well
absorbed. if regarded from the stand
point of buyers of stocks on Monday, but
the relapse from the high price today, at
which there wag a considerable volume
of purchases, makes disappointing re
sults for those who got in at the high
I level. The market must be considered
also in connection with the positive ele
ments of weakness which developed.
The violent break in Sugar was a de
cidedly disturbing Influence and had more
effect than similar breaks have had in
the immediate past. This stock was
pushed up ;1% this morning on the pub
lished reports that ..the proposed advance
in the price of pacKage . coffee was the
forerunner of a settlement of the Sugar
trade war. which has *- been .1 puzzle to
Wall street for many months. This
comforting- assurance for holders of Su
gar certificates received a rude shock
from the announcement which quickly
followed of a cut in the price of granu
lated sugar by the American company,
which was followed by: the other' com
panies, bringing the prices by all to the
same basis.
As the American r.ccwhpany has b en
holding its price aboVa. of the other
companies, the b:ing.in& of prices tr the
same basis-is alleged; equivalent to
a settlement. But i&ij-' dM not. avail to

WALL STREET GOSSlP—Strong,
Sturgis & Co wire Holbert & Son: Our
market opened with a very strong stimu
lus by people who were recognized there
for investment, but who recognized there
would be a fcoavy demand for high grade,
securities. This was demonstrated by
■extensive purchases of Pennsylvania
Railway.: The chief interest in the street
has furthermore concentrated itself In
St. Paul, the Northern Pacifies, Great
Northern and-Erie, 1 upon the theory that
the lease of ■■ the ■ St." Paul road would'
be perfected and that an extensive com
bination would: be arrived ;at whereby
all of these properties would be directly
benefited. Doubtless steps of importance
are being:- taken -in this direction, but
it is not wise at the present moment
to look on them as completed, still the
stocks are favorably regarded and may
go romewhat higher. We cannot refrain
however, at this moment from calling
the attention of our friends to the hi--*h
range that stocks in general have reach
ed. Since election stocks have risen.from
ten to forty points • and many people
here are trading in thousands of shares
when the other operations should be
lhr.ited_ to hundreds. Though we recog
nize- that ; the tendency of the country
Is all toward prosperity and better prices
we cannot refrain from offering words of
.FOREIGN FINANCIAL-New York,

which was counterbalanced. by free gen

here now depresses the boom, . pointing
t£l*?Ta evidences of "re manipulation
that Pacific roads have risen two points
lately, while Canadian Pacific, benefited
