In cattle prices. Offerings today were
largely butcher cattle, and included some
of good quality. Packers were liberal
buyers, and yards were cleared early. In
tne stocker and feeder divisions there wa3
but little fresh stuff on sale and trade
was quiet Should the stormy weather
continue it will undoubtedly have a bad
effect on this branch ,of the trade, es
pecially if receipts are at all heavy.
Much cows are slow sale. Receipts in
cluded a train of feeding cattle not
placed on sale. Representative sales-

NEW YORK, Feb. The professional
element among the stock operators show
ed a rather hopeful spirit this morning,
and started with some confidence to buy
the transcontinental railroad stocks. The
movement seemed to be based on an as
sumption that the supreme court would
hand down its decision today in the
Northwestern Securities company case,
for within half an hour after the time
for the sitting of the court the morning's
g&ins in these stocks had been wiped
out. . -1
The dealings in Southern Pacific were
especially large and gave evidence of
operations by a speculative pool. There
v.tre very large dealings also in St. Paul
and Union Pacific, "but their gains were
entirely wiped out. Efforts were made
to revive the market by inaugurating
a movement in the coalers. Lackawanna
spurted 14%, very little stock coming out.
Rumors were received that the stock
•was to be doubled - with valuable rights
to present holders. The dealings.; in
Amalgamated cepper were on an "enor
mous scale, the number 'of shares sold
being about the largest for a single day
in the history of the stock.
The favorable statement of net earn
ings for December was responsible for
strength in the Minneapolis, St. Paul &
Sault Ste. Marie stocks, the common
rising 2*4 and the preferred 3*4,, with
final reactions of about a point. "Weak
ness in Metropolitan was attributed to
reports of an early retirement from busi
ness of one of the company's large cap
italists. The large increase in loans by
the bank last week was the subject of
much discussion without throwing much
light upon the uses for which the bor
rowed money was designed.
The fact that nearly $10,000,000 of the in
crease, or half of the total, was made
by two of the leading tanks in the
clearing house, which are affiliated with
the financial power which orignated
most of the great combinations last
year, encouraged the supposition that
large syndicate operations and possibly
new projects are in hand.
Subscriptions to a number of new rail
road bond 'ssues might also be respon
sible. The money market continued easy,
notwithstanding the expectation that the
outward movement of gold is to be re
newed. In fact, the ease of the money
market is the permissive factor In the
export of gold.
Railroad bonds were moderately ac
tive and irregular. Total sales, par
value, $4,245,000. United States bonds
were all unchanged on the last call.

MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. Firmness rul
ed the wheat market this morning 1, and
the week started with a moderate gain,
May holding- just under 75c at noon. Tne
Northwestern movement is Very light and
this tends to make the local pit quickly
responsive to any show of strength, and
at times today the local price was rela
tively a fraction firmer than "other mar
kets. Oo!d weather is general in the
North and West,- with snow flurries in
the Dakotas and Minnesota. It is gen
erally clear in the West and Southwest.
Light snow fell over Sunday in some
parts of Kansas arid Missouri. The Wash
ington weather bureau report for Janu
ary says the principal winter wheat
states have had ample snow protection.
Primary iece 4 were 467.000 bu, against
1,135,000 bu, arid shipments 227,000 bu,
against 314,000 bu, • but th« last year fig
ures are for two days. Wheat anil flour
clearances equaled 630,000 bu. Receipts at
Minneapolis were 242 cars, against 492 cars
.last year, and at Duluth 12b cars, against
a holiday.
Near the close the firmness in corn and
oats began to be felt in wheat and^?.
further buying May went to 75% c. At t*j
close May was 75%e. Jury 76%@7G%c, and
January, 74% c. Chicago closed May ii<t
78% c.
The cash market was about on the
same basis as Saturday, with this differ
ence, that the presence of the regular
Monday morning outride buyers . made
the demand a little i&ore active. Re
ceipts were light, and this helped the
strength. No. 1 northern was salable
at May price. Buyers expressed prefer
ence for Milwaukee and Omaha cars, but
there was less discrimination against the
Great Northern cars, and wliere they con
tained good milling wheat they went
pretty much on the same -basis as the
others. No. 1 northern sold at 74% c
for the average, and at this figure to
arrive. No. 2 northern sold from 72% c
to 73%e» a good part at the latter figure.
No. 3 ranged from 71c to 72% c.: Re
jected and no grade brought anywhere
from 61% cto 71c, according to quality.

trade today. May wheat closed with a
net gain of %@%c; May com l@l%c, and
May oats %@%c Provisions closed 5®
% to 10c higher.
Aside from the early weekly statistics
the news of the wheat pit was bullish
Northwestern , and local receipts were
small. Northwestern elevator stocks were
decreased, there was a fair demand and
cables were slightly up to start, though
their early advance was lost. The cold
weather and storms threatened a slower
movement and increased feeding. The
coarse grains, especially corn, were
strong, and reflected a good deal of their
power to wheat. The monthly report
from Washington gave a poor showing
. for the condition of the winter crop.
?Shorts became nervous and set to cover
ing, and May, which opened a shade low
er, to a shade higher, at 7S@7S^c, ad
vanced. The visible supply was report
ed decreased 1,444,000 bushels and sent
May to 7S%c.
Toward the end of the session realiz
ing eased the tone slightly. The ruling
feeling:, however, was firm throughout
the day, and May closed firm %@%e up,
at 78% c. Outside markets were higher,
but the absence of any marked outside
interest in this market led to a quiet
trade. Local receipts were 39 cars, two
of contract grade; Minneapolis and Du
luth reported 370 oars, making a total for
the three points of 389 cars against 312 las;
week and 1,017 for two cays last year.
Primary receipts were 467, " bu,
against 1,135,000 for the two days a year
&?o. World's shipments were 8,284,00)
bushels, .compared with 7.2530.00 . bush
[last week and 7,312,000 .bu&heis a year ago.
The on-passage. statement showed an
increase of .2,552,000 bushels. Sea.boar.l
clearances ;n wheat and flour equaled
620,000 bushels. The seaboard reported
lethargy in exports.
Reports that the cold weather would
continue for some time infused consider
able strength in cold and set bears guess
in gas to the wisdom of their attitude
toward the market. Cables were firm
end receipts very small. An early in
vestment demand ' began' to spring up
md shorts covered freely. There was ' it
tie corn for sale early and May ait?r
opening %@%c higher sold up to V "to
Gl^e. The visible supply bulletin read
"unchanged" in corn, for the first time
in the history of the board in such a con
nection. Cash business was restricted -by
light offeiings. . Altogether corn showed
a strong feeling. Late in the day the
advanced prices brought some realizing
and a consequent easier; feeling. May
closed strong l@l%c up at 63%<§:64c. Re
ceipts were only 62 cars... ,~- .
Traders in oats kept near shore. They
feel that when something does happen
again in oats it will be decided, and they
are not anxious to be caught again as.
they were last week. Consequently the
oats market was small, though it fol
lowed corn and showed some strength.
May opened well .up,: but fluctuations
were over a^narrow- range. • The close for
May was firm. %%%c higher, at 44% c. Re
ceipts were only 54 cars.
A "better -cash ■ trade than -has exited
in provisions for some-time, together
with the grain strength,-helped prices
well. The opening was lower on increases
in stock, but pork- had a good demand
and advanced other products. • May pork
closed 10c up at $15.87*4; May lard s@7i£c
higher at $9.45, and May ribs 5@7%c up
at $8.45. ■■:■*• •',-•.■ :--»:--^- : --v
