SUMMARY OF THE DAY'S TRANSACTIONS IN THE MARKETS
WHEAT BREAKS IN
SCALPING MARKET
Closes Lower After Nervous
Session on Slackness of
Cash Demand
Giuin was lower in all pits. Stocks I
were active and the late broadening ten
tlericy of the market was again in evi
dence.
What the Brokers Say
M. Doran & Co.'s grain letter:
Wheat halted after ten days of pretty
ooiitinunus advance. The market was
nervous on a large trade, of which the
pi-pater proportion was of a professional
character. The pressure came from real
izing sa-les and short selling for a natural
tlon. Operators both ways were in
fluenced by the speculative conditions
lather than any decided change in the
Situation. The Southwestern markets
were inclined to easiness on some let up
in the ca?h demand and on prospective
larger marketings now that the fall plow
ing is completed. No. 1 northern in Min
neapolis sold at 5%c over December and
there was a rumor current of further
importations of Manitoba wheat. This,
however, was never confirmed. The flour
production in Minneapolis last week was
a little short of the previous period, but
about 19,000 bbls larger than last year.
The Northwestern Miller reports trade on
the whole satisfactory, with sales in ex
<•( >s <if output. We see no reason to
change our bullish position on this mar
ket. Liverpool closed %d lower. Esti
mated cars tomorrow, 92.
m—The reactionary bulge in corn
on pit conditions spent its force by mid
session. Shorts at that time were* pretty
well in and renewed selling by influential
interests changed the whole tone and
resulted in o.uick decline and losses in
all options for the day. The December
Buffered most, the selling of it being espe
cially persistent. The bad weather for
• movement forecasted yesterday was real
ized only in lowa. In the balance of the
corn territory lower and seasonabie tem
peratures are a favorable feature. Price
Current says previous indications are ful
ly suppoted by later conditions. The
evidence of good quality is maintained.
Such export demand as existed has been
phut off by the advance. Not a bushel
of coin was cleared today from the Atlan
tic seaboard. May will go lower and we
again suggest the purchase of December
against such sales. Liverpool was *[email protected]
s^d higher on good demand. Estimated
cai-s. 104.
Oats—The early buying by cash houses
and elevator interests made the day's
high prices, but values quickly followed
the lead of corn whon that market
turned weak. The shipping demand to
Eastern points is increasing somewhat
and a few loads are being worked daily
for export. If the present level of values
is not advanced a gradually increasing de
mand may be anticipated. There was
nothing cleared from the seaboard. Es
timated cars, 104.
Provisions were pretty much within
control of local operators. Prices were
liid up early as offerings proved to be
light. A reaction occurred coincident
with the break in corn. Estimated hogs
tomorrow, 14,000.
J. C. Geraghty's stock letter:
Logan & Bryan—The market seemed to
be again gathering strength. It is still
an active market, but a little less so than
yesterday. This probably indicates less
in the way of liquidation and profit taking.
The tone is at least steady, and under
the circumstances we think strong. We
can see nothing to make any permanent
weakness in the market. Profits to a
great many holders seem attractive,' as
the market has had a long and persistent
advance, but stocks are not yet high,
money is cheap and seems to be tending
cheaper. What can the big fellows do
with their money to better advantage
than hold stocks which are paying con
piderably better than current rates of in
terest. We see nothing to make more
than scalping reactions.
O'Connor & Van Bergen's New York ad
vices:
The market has developed quite a vig
orous rallying tendency, especially this
afternoon, recovering; most of the early
decline and showing in places distinct
strength. Traders were quick to follow
advances in several of the more active
stocks, some of them covering shorts and
taking the long side. They seem to find
a strong bull argument in the fact that
with all the strength in St. Paul no real
news has been made public to account for
it. It is said if the movement had been
manipulative there would have been any
quantity of rumors, each more plausible
than another. .The buying looks good,
even on the advance. The bull talk on
Brooklyn Rapid Transit included a report
that another traction interest, supposed
to be Metropolitan, had offered to buy
the property on a basis of 3^ per cent
guarantee, ■ but had met with refusal. We
do not think much of this story. It is
said the uptown crowd are carrying an
unusual heavys line of stocks, some of
which have been disposed of today.
The market was irregular, with some
heaviness in the morning on heavy selling
by Western houses, which depressed prices
without causing real weakness. At the
lower level the volume of trading fell off,
a good symptom in a bull market. Late
recoveries were on a light business and
influenced in part by strength of special
ties. The tractions were features. Met
ropolitan was bought from the opening on
a weil distributed pointer that it would ad
vance. Ontario & Western was well
bought at the opening and later made a
sharp advance oil enormous buying or
ders clearly, for accumulation and not for I
speculation. The close was irregular,
with better tone all through the list.
-' '■ Coffee and Sugar
NEW YORK, Oct. —The market for
coffee futures opened steady at unchanged
pricas to an advance of 5 points. Euro
pean cables were steady. Brazilian re
ceipts moderate and primary markets un
changed. There was also another private
cable from Brazil practically reiterating
previous reports concerning the coming
crop and following the call there was a
continued good demand from Wall street
sources and the prices gradually work
ing upward. The advance was aided later
■by a closing gain of Vt franc at Havre

WHEAT HAS A DECLINE

Due to Reported Scarcity of Milling
Wheat—Break in Minneapolis Brings
Out Heavy Sales
CHICAGO, Oct. 20.—Increased primary
receipts and lower prices for cash wheat
caused a decline in speculative wheat
prices here today. At the close the De
cember r silvery was down %c; May was
off 34c. Corn shows a loss l%c. Oats are
ofE %c. Provisions are unchanged to 5c
higher. • '~ '■■- ••• •••■*'..-.■ „„. ,•■ "
Notwithstanding liberal . receipts.. In the
Northwest and easier cables, a firm un
dertone prevailedi In the wheat ' market
at the openinjg. December TCaslup %@%c
to %@%c.' at $1.14%'"t0 $1.15%. while
May was %c lo.wer to %c higher, at $1.13
to $1.14%. The initial firmness was due
mainly to -reported scarcity..- of milling
wheat. :,, A sharp break in prices at r Min
neapolis, however,.' soon ■ brought • out
heavy sales here by pit traders and com
mission houses/ the , impression 'v appar
ently being that . the ! lower prices -in- the
Northwest foreshadowed: a still greater
increase in the country movement in that
section. In consequence sentiment for a
time was rather -bearish. The "declining
tendency x was checked by an active -demand
from shorts and some of the big bull oper
ators. Following a v rally •of Minneapolis
the market here also became strong, De
cember advancing to ,; $1.16%. .' May also
sold up to $1.14%:*:0n a sTiarp break in
corn about this time the wheat market
was subjected, to heavy realizing sales as
a result of which 'sentiment became; quito
weak. Selling pressure was**increas'ed by
larger arrivals at Kansas. City and St.
Louis and by exceedingly small exports
for the day. ,' The market was further
weakened by the execution, of stop loss
orders and, by a slackened demand for
cash wheat at all outside | points. The
low point on December for the day was
reached at $1.14>4, and on May at $1.12%.
Some recovery was 'made.' on covering by
shorts, but the close was weak, with De
cember. at $1.14%(5)1.14%. Final quota
tions on May were at $1.13%. '
Clearances on r wheat and flour- were
equal to. 7.50 C bu, the exports consisting
entirely of flour. Primary receipts were
1,059,700 bu. compared with 901,800 bu a
year ago. -Minneapolis, Duluth and Chi- j
cago reported receipts of 878 cars, against
827 cars last week and 575 cars a year
ago.
Corn Shows a Loss ;';
Firm cables and wet -weather in por-'
tions of the West caused >an active -de
mand for corn early in the session, . result
ing in a strong market. Sentiment sud- :
denly became extremely weak, however, ',
in consequence of general liquidation of
December. The j selling. was due to an
announcement . that five cars of new corn,
grading No. 2. had been received at Kan
sas City. During. the last half hour the
market rallied slightly on covering.' but .
predictions of clear,- cool weather, for to- 1
morrow prevented any decided ; advance. '
December opened unchanged to %c higher
at 49% c to 49% c, sold between 48c and
49%®49%c." and closed: at 4S%e. Local
receipts were 79 cars, with 3 of contract
grade. ' ~'-" ■ .\ '
The action of wheat and corn was the
dominating. influence in the oats market.
Commission houses were, fair buyers . on
an early advance, but sold out later in
the day. December or>ened a shade high
er, at 29<g)29%c. ranged between 128% c
and 29%@29%c,and closed ' at 28% c. Lo
cal receipts were 114 cars.
Provisions were steady on fair support |
by pit traders. Trading, was very quiet,
partly as a result of a, scarcity of offer
ings. At the close January pork .was up
5c at $12.40. Lard • was down - 2%c at
$7.17%. - Ribs: were unchanged at $6.47%.

Minneapolis—Against unresponsive ca
bles and much bearish gossip the wheat
market held strong: and advancing. An
early drive put prices off 2c from the
high points of Wednesday, but reaction
was quick ana December came up from
$1.17% to Sl.l9*<i with a jump. By con
certed action, or what looked like it. the
cash wheat buyers forced prices off a lit
tle, relative to the option, and No. 1
northern was l^»@2c nnder December, and
No. 2 northern 2c under. The fact that
the edge was off the Minneapolis cash
market was sent broadcast. With this
there were 6CKS cars posted here against
873 last year, and this looked like big
prices drawing in wheat, and was likewise
used for bear effect. Later the figures
were changed to 606, the report having
erred by 100 cars. Then the sellers of
wheat who had acted on the big receipts
changed about. Following was the rang©
of prices:

Flour — Notwithstanding the higher
prices buying orders for flour were large,
considerably in" excess of what had been
expected. At the higher level there has
not been the curtailment of trade usually
noted after the market has made an ad
vance. The 25c added to prices recently
has not scared buyers, who are appar

Tells Why H« Opposes Roosevelt
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Oct. 20.—Ex-
Senator David B. Hill delivered an ad
dress before a Democratic mass meet
ing here.
Mr. Hill, among other things,
discussed the question of a rea
sonable revision of the present tar
iff rates. He contended that the
"stand pat" policy of the Repub
licans at the present time was in
every way injurious to the best in
terests of the country. He paid con
siderable attention to the Philippines
and Panama questions, and in conclud
ing, said:
"I am opposed to the re-election of a
president who has either traduced or
ridiculed nearly every one of his pre
decessors in office and who seems to
imagine that- this country had never
amounted to anything until the little
skirmish with Spain occurred and he
suddenly blossomed out into a military
power as a lieutenant colonel."
Mr. Hill predicted Democratic suc
cess in West Virginia as well as In
diana, New York, Connecticut and New
Jersey.
Fervent Expression From Miles
NEW YORK, Oct. 20.—Gen. Miles call
ed on Judge Parker today. Later he
said:
"All that is possible is being done for
Judge Parker, and when the voters go
into the booths in the presence of their
God alone they will vote the Democratic
ticket."

STOCKS REACT FURTHER
WEAKNESS IS AT NO TIME ACUTE, j
::• HOWEVER v /
When i Selling Exhausts Part of Its Force
Another Movement Toward Recovery
. Develops—Close Is Firm ; }- ,: • / '.-}[■.
NEW YORK. Oct. 2O.—The reaction in
: stocks • went further today, - but, the mar
ket gave proof of \ the wardship \of power
ful , supporters ■ and the weakness was lat
no time acute. Vigorous .- supporting
measures were : adopted at:the - opening
against the early flood .; of profit taking
wnic-h was brought in over night by yes
terday's ■'■ sharp break "- fn prices. The re
action was then seemingly allowed to take
its course for a time, and when, the sell
ing had exhausted part of ,: its. force an
other movement- towards; recovery devel
oped. ' News ,' bearing ,oh > values . play
little part in the movement. ■.-; .•"■•"
The: determined ; liquidation yin United
States Steel - stocks had as ; much effect
on sentiment as -anything else has and
occurred in spite of the news of excited
buying of pig iron for • forward delivery
and of very large orders for new freight
cars by j the . railroads • in- expectation of
an active revival of business. Yesterday's
report of the Republic Iron and Steel com
pany, disclosing the extent of the slump in
the trade last year, came in for some con
sideration, and > the new interests repre
sented in that company may have aroused
attention to i the possibility :of : new oppo
sition- to .the corporation. There 'were
also -rumors intended closing down of
furnaces by the corporation. The com
placency.- with',- which the reaction was
generally regarded S was due " to the I sup
position that r the ; great " financial forces
which have m ade.; the market favored a
reaction in order to shake off 1, weak fol
lowers and give . opportunity for them
selves, to secure stocks at a 'lower' level j
which had been sold at a profit. ,- .
Buying of Best Character ]
In accordance with this idea was the I
assertion ; which" found ' circulation at va- '
rious times during the day that the buy
ing on the decline was of the best charac- :
ter. As . the art of » concealment of acts .
is : the one most prized in stock market
operations, it follows that l the floating in- j
formation on i this . subject is ■', peculiarly ;
liable to error. The conviction, however, '
that powerful financial -interests were
taking stocks on the decline and that
a waiting demand existed; at lower prices
did have a strong I influence, in dissuading
holders from parting from ~ their stocks
and in sustaining the tone of the market.
The special movements of the day were
in the local 1 tractions, ' including In
tertorough Rapid Transit on . the < curb and
Ontario . & Western. The'^movement- in ,
the former was in connection with revived
rumors ■of a " comprehensive ■ merger in the
local traction field. '.. The, report. of a pur- ;
chase of Ontario & Western in the interest
of : the New ; Haven, which was : officially
denied yesterday, .-was ■ revived today.
Amalgamated Copper weakened in the .an
ticipation of only the regular dividend be
ing ■ ' declared and rallied on the ' actual
declaration. .>: St. Paul and Atchison offer
ed relatively good resistance ■ to depression
and Chicago Great Western made a show
of strength. The furious buying. of On
tario & Western toward the last held the
market firm : at the . rally to the ' closing.
The day's net changes in consequence are
very small - and show mixed gains and
losses."-...,-■ .-r- -."•-- ■•■-■•■"• "■ : /■' .'- -..-. ■
