CHICAGO, Dec. 30.—Liberal ship ments of wheat reported today from India, Australia and the Argentine took off the edge of buying enthusiasm here. However, a moderate demand developed at a email decline below last night's figures. Private estimates of the Argentine surplus were a little more bullish, and there was a decided disposition shown to keep away from the short side of the market, motives for caution in this respect being for eign purchases and also the apparent large holdings of the big bull houses. The fact was noted, too, that local stocks were decreasing. Prices opened a snade to % lower, with May at 97 to 97%, showing the same variations the market as a whole. Later there was a rally to 97%. Assertions that the government had overestimated the spring wheat crop led to increased firmness, but profit taking and predictions of heavy world shipments caused a sudden decline. The close was easy, % net lower at 96%. Talk of general rains in Argentina eased corn, but purchases by the same firms that were buyers yesterday braced the market up. May started a shade to % down at 48% to 4S%#48% and react ed to 48%. An estimation that the total yield in the United States was much under the government figures added strength to the market. The close, however, was easv with May at 48%#%, a net gain of %. Oats, although slow, held more steady than either corn or wheat. May opened a shade up to a shade off at 34% to 34% and sold at 84%#84%. Provisions were higher with hogs, but trade was scatter'd and light. First sales were a shade to 15 up. with May options at 18.70 to 1875 for pork, 10.17% to 10.20 for lard and 9.80 for ribs. NEW YORi.

BANK EXCHANGES SHOW A MARKED DECREASE, j NEW YORK, Dec 30,—Dun's Review tomorrow will say: Pronounced de crease continues to appear in the vol- i urne of bank exchanges, the total this j week at all leading cities in the United i States amounting to only 12,181,761,011, a loss of 18.7 per cent, as compared with the same week last year and of 25.5 per cent, compared with the active year 1906. The percentage of loss in the daily average figures, which more closely represent the actual volume of transac tions, Is also slightly greater than lhsi year, although It remains the same with 1906. Most of this additional de crease Is due to further contraction at j New York city, where the loss this week Is 26.0 per cent., against 20.2 per cent, a week ago, and is largely ac counted for by the extreme dullness in the stock and financial markets. Of the cities outside New York, Baltimore Is the only point In the East reporting a gain over last year, but in the West Chicago makes slightly larger returns and Cleveland a good gain, while Kan sas City and St. Louis continue to re port Increases over both years.
