COMMERCIAL AND FINANCIAL
Eirly Period of Weakness Followftd by Strong
Grain and Provinion Market.
DECEMBER WHEAT BOUNDS UP OVER A CENT
KfTrrt of Storm on ConnlrjSlilptnrnli

Demand .11 nIii Cntmrn for
Advance * Scored.
CHICAGO , Nov. 22. The market for
Kraln and provisions became very strong
today after the early period of weakness.
The effect of the storm on country shipments -
monts and the heavy continued foreign de
mand for American grain were the main
causes for the advances scored. Wheat
closed ? 4C higher , and corn nnd oats nbout
He higher. Provisions advanced ( /3\W.c.
The llrat hour and a half In wheat tradIng -
Ing was marked by exceptional dullness
nnd prices during that period scarcely
moved from the point ut w filch the market
rtarttd. It teemed as If the bllzz.ird had
fiozen all Inclination to buy and sell wheat
nnd trades of any Importance were r'-
rnnrkable for their scarcity. There was
some selling pressure at the start , enough
to causa l-SQVic decline on the leading
options , May opening at CG'-iOCC 3-ic and
Dictmbcr at G7 l-SQ < i7'ic tlurly Liverpool
quotations thawed a very small advance.
The selling , however , was apparently al
most altogether by shorts Liverpool cables
for the lust six days have bten entirely
from this country , and this nnd the de-
i reusing thlpments from Russia and the
Dannblan countries had evidently left a
permanent Impression on the speculative
mind , us very little long wheat has been
for mile Northwest receipts were heavy
MKiiln , Minneapolis and Duluth reporting
2,177 ears , eomp ired with 2,030 ears last
week nnd lot ! a year ago , Chicago re
ceipts were 39J ears.
A remarkable feature of the northwest
markets won nn advance of Ic In cash
wheat In spite of receipts of 1,831 cars at
that point. This was the jtarter for n.
notublo advance here. After 11 o'clock th.
market became active and very strong. The
lillz/tird niglng throughout the west nnd
northwest was expected to result In a great
falling oft In receipts and also caused fears
of an early closing of the str.iltf. This
frightened December shorts nnd heavy buyIng -
Ing from that sourcecontlnu d for some
tnno , fending the Dectmbcr price nt onetime
time to a premium of 1 l-8o over May.
Atlantic ; port clearances of wheat and
flour amounted to 672,000 bu. New York re
ported good acceptances from abroad of
last night's rallied offerings. Three boat
loads ottered direct from Chicago to Liver
pool worn acceptd. Before the noon hour
December had udvanc'd to G73-80G7c and
Slay to GO D-8c. Bradttreet's report of the
world's visible showing a total Increase
of 7,032,000 bu. was considerably heavier
than expected and arrested the boom fern
n , time , realizing nnd Increased short selling
e.iuslng some reacting In prices. The cash
Flttmtlon , hov.cver , was too strong for the
mnrlft to be held down nnd near the close
Imvlng bccnmo very active again , the m ir-
Keit advancing and holding firm to the end.
December closed nt GS 1-fcc nnd May ut 67 1-8
C < fi7tc. .
The market for corn was active through
out. Harly there was n slight dip on the
theory that the cold weather would Im
prove the quality of now corn. There WITO
buyers for every bushel offered , however ,
and the market grew very ttrong. The
seaboard demand was enormous , 115 loads
being worked for export. Receipts were
light , 300 cars. Near tle ) close the bullish
ness of wh at gave bujcrs fuither encour
agement and trading was quite heavy
toward the close. May ranged from 34 l-SfrD
3l'ic to ' ! 5c , and cloied 3-Sft'Ac higher nt
31 7-8ft'Hc.
Oats followed corn closely , opening weak
.and closing strong. Then- was a good deal
of short selling by scalpers early In the
day and their covering later helped ma
terially to strengthen the market. Thorp
was a good local nnd export demand. Re.
ertpts wcra 2G9 cars May ranged from 2Gc
to 267-80 and closed 3o higher nt 2G'lic.
Provisions , though rather qultt , were
firm snd followed closely the advance In
the grain markets. Packers were moderate
sellers , but there was nn Increased commis
sion house- demand nnd all offerings were
taken. At th * COM January pork was 12HC !
higher nt $9.2214 , January lard 5c higher nt
$310 nnd January rlbo 7 ! SJ10c higher at
ll70iT4.721/ ? .

NEW YORK , Nov. 22-PrIces were
sharply advanced at the opening today nnd
for a number of stocks closed near the
best. But the market In the meantime
went throuizh n period of depre slon nnd
thp bulk of the day's business was done
below ; the best prices nnd In some very
prominent stocks below last night's closing
prices.
The opening advance was emphasized bv
the discovery of the spurious character of
yesterday's report of Senor Montero Rlos'
refusal to proceed with the p'aco negotia
tions at Paris. The bears who sold short
yesterday hastened to cover this morning
and there were besides n largo
amount of commission orders from the
country nt large. Rock Island , Atchlcon
profprred , Baltimore & Ohio , Denver & Rio
Grande preferred and Norfolk & Western
preferred were up about n point , nnd Fed
eral Btepl prpfprred , Manhattan , Tobacco
nnd People's Gas ro o from 1 to lsl points.
This sharp advance In prl Invited realiz
ing on a very large scale nnd there vvns
In addition renewed heaviness In the north
western railroad properties on revived re
ports of an embittered war In pro pect
hetvvttn the Northern Pacific nnd Oregon
Navigation nnd Its extensive , allied Inter
ests. There was a slncl < e lng up also In
the advance In the grangers , probably on
account of the prevallng storm in the
west. Very marked weakness developed In
the Federal Steel stocks , the preferred stock
dropping 2H per cent. The reputed ground
for this weaknehs Is the nllegc'd unwill
ingness on the part of some financial In
stitutions to accept thp e newlv floated se-
curtle * ) as collateral There was a marked
falling off In the ? lately conspicuous move
ment In Atchlson after the heaviness in
the general market developed In imrkod
degree. These B .venl points of weakness
appealed for support to some of the most
powerful Interests at this financial center ,
and the support was forthcoming In quite
a vigorous manner toward th rlose of the
dav. The rise In Northern Pacific was at
tributed to the large baiiKIm ? Interest
which exerciser the dominant control In
the property. It VVTS regnrdPd as signifi
cant that the stocks of other companies
In which thp same Interest had been domi
nant In reorganization or formation weie
advanced simultaneously with Northern Pa
cific. Such stocks were Southern prnfernd ,
which rose to extreme 2'i points ; the
Reading stocks , the Erie stocks nnd 7 ed-
eral Steel stocks It was the Inside sup-
and manipulation In this group and
Cert Federal Steel which rallied the mar
ket. Incidentally , there was .a recovery of
zy2 per cent In Delaware & Hudson nnd of
ne-arly C points In Chicago & Alton.
New York bank clearings ran up today
to over J220.000.000 This nrtlvlty In the
loeal money market , the slight disparity In
rates between here nnd Ixindon , although
the Ixindon raid hardened today , and the
falluro of the private discount rate In Ber
lin to fully respond to the advance in the
bank rate there led to an easier tone In
thci exchange market today
Actual rates for sterling were shaded
and postpd rates were reduced ijc. The
bond market also showed decided activity

The Evening Post's Ixindon financial ca
blegram : The stock market hero today vvns
hetter generally , the factors operating be
ing the continued Pate of money nnd the
trade agreement between Frnnro and It.alv.
Italian stocks roi over 2 per rent nnd thrre
was nn Important fall In Italian exchange
nn London. Amerle-ans were good nnd
closed steady , but there was. perhaps , less
nctivlty , owing to the Improvement In other
markets. The recovery In Canadian storks
caused considerable reallratlons from Ber
lin , which Is Important as placng that mar
ket In funds for dealing In Amerleans or
for other purposes Copper shares were
strong , notably Anaconda , which was
bought heavily. The money outlook here l
perplexing. The Bank of England Rtlll
borrows from the market , but the heavy
maturity of the German bills held here nnd
not renewed adds dally to the unemployed
ciush balance. I learn on undoubted au
thority that a scheme is under dl ° eusslon
at Berlin for abolishing the tax navable by
the Imperial bank when the nole does not
exceed a fixed amount The Idea Is op
posed by the best banking authorities. It
Is Impossible , to say whether tlws proposal
will be formally made or not.

tlir Force.
"Once , when 'Long John' Wentworth was
tnavor of Chicago , " e.ays the Journal of that
city , "a hot campaign was In progress. Thorough
rough clement was showing signs of turbu
lence , and 'Long John' knew that the police
force was totally unable to cope with it If
there should be a riot. There wasn't much
of any police force In those days. The few
iffleers that there were didn't have any uni
form outside of n plug hnt. On the front of
ihls was a Beml-clrcle of tin , with the can's
number on It. There was no money to pay
for additional otllcers , so 'Long John' lic-
.hought himself of a bright scheme Ho had
a flgttro ' 0' added to the number on every
me of those hnts. On election dav the ditfer-
; nt members of the force were stationed con
spicuously where the trouble- wan mos likely
o break out The roughs saw the numbers ,
230 , ' ' 200 , ' ' 330 , ' etc. , where they had before
seen onlv ' 23 , ' ' 20' and ' 35. ' The word went
iround that 'Long John' had added several
uindred men to , the police force , and the
ough crowd were so Intimidated that they
lover dared to do a thing. ' "

The emptiness of the yards this morning
reminded old-timers of the great blizzard
of ten vcnrs ago , when no stoek was re
ceived at the yards and when buMnsss
came to a complete standstill. In the
early years of the stock > ards at South
Omaha there were a number of storms
which were severe enough to Interfere with
the running of stoek trains nnd on several
occasions the yards were bare of supplies
from that cause. During more recent years
thu storms have not be n so severe or else
the railroads have been better prepared to
rope with them , so that the-e have been
few occasions wh n there was not at least
a moderate supply of stock on sale
CATTLC Only twenty-five loads of cattle
were received , but there were quite a num
ber of stock cattle held over from the day
before. Of the cattle here there were seven
loads of medium fat cattle , which was
hardly enough to make a market or to
awnksn any Interest. The feeling , however ,
was Heady and It would be safe to say
that had there been anything of any im
portance there would have been a good
market. In fact sellers of the few here
thought they got fully steady prices. A
bunch of forty-five head sold ut $1 CO
There was almost nothing here In the way
of butchers' stock or cow stuff to make a
test of ths market. The market , without
doubt , would have been steady had there
been anything here to eell.
There were quite a good many stock
cattle on hand , which were carried over on
account of the storm , but there were very
few buyers In from the country and the
morning passed with very little business
being transacted and the only thing that
could b said of the market was that It was
slow , with price * steady at the recent de
cline. Late In the day some cattle changed
hands , but the total number was small.

linve all been wanting hogs nnd that they
have not been able to get enough to keep
Ihelr houses running to no full capacity as
leslred has been the cause of the strong

ELEI'IlAVn.ttC OBESITY.
Maritime Yaccn'ii Snd Experience with
n Wen I Ih of Flpuh.
It would seem from a number of Incidents
which might be wearying to recite that
whenever lovely or unlovely woTnan enters
the field of competition with rude , unsym
pathetic man , the latter tries his beat , cither
: overtly or openly , to thwart her ambition
ind discourage her efforts.
A case In Illustration of this opposition
> f the sterner sex to the gentler In their
jndcavors to snatch the bubble reputation
llthcrto pre-empted and monopolized by
masculinity appears In the sad experience
) f Madame Yucca , related In the St. Louis
Republic. Nature and months of practice
) vcr the washtub and with the scrubbing
iiop had developed this gentle being's
nuscles until she could carry folding beds
upstairs on her shoulder and lift the Ice
man's wagon out of a nit whenever the
lorsea got stalled on a rainy day In front
> f the door of the house where she worked.
These feats of strength got to the eira of
i circus manager , who sent for her and gave
IOT an engagement. She was billed on the
mow posters as The Female Sandow. and
> ne of her tricks was to lift an elephant
vhlch weighed 1,500 pounds for $ ir.O a week ,
> r at the rate of 10 cents a pound. It was
i pioud moment for Madame Yucca when
iho walked Into the sawdust arena , Just
iftcr the leather-lunged ringmaster had
( escribed the character of her wonderful
le-rformance and , with the greatest eate and
he aid of a bewildering arrangement of
itraps , yanked the tusked mammoth off his
'cet and 'tossed ' him over her head , while
ho populace shouted and the band played
'Throw Him Down , O'Orady. "
Ono rrlght she could not elevate the
lachyderm , though rtio tugged at the task
111 her hairpins flew out and her shoe-
itrlngs broke. The audience Jeered and the
nanager discharged her.
The female Sandow went to a lawyer. Ho
irought suit against the circus owner for a
argo amount of damages. He had "Pitz-
u ; h Lre , " which is the name of the ele-
ihant , put on the scales , and It turns out
hat his avoirdupois had Increased to a
on. Ho had exceeded his contract weight
> y 500 pounds because envious male per-
ormers had tak n him surreptitiously off
ho diet of whisky and tobacco which kept
ilm within the lifting limit and allowed him
o gorge himself nightly on tropical fruits ,
Imothy hay and other fat-begetting foods.
Mad-xme Yucca should have the sympathy
if every chivalrous man and of every
vonian who opposes masculine monopoly of
nuseularltv U Is to be hoped she will win
UT suit. This thing of trying to flx nnttcrs
o that having fun with the elephant la
onflned > io men only should bo stopped lor
nco and all.
HHC.I i > It.
Chicago Post AftiT stretching him n 1H-
lo on the rack the Inquisitors laid him on
i table and pounded him a while with
lallets. When they gre v tlrod and paused
a rest ho roused hlmcelf , and the next In-
tant they were startled by the question :
"Who's got the ball' "
Afterward they retired to delnto among
tiemselvcs and ceo If they could devlsp some
ystom of phsteal torture that would not
pern BO much like the regular thing to a
jot ball player.
