The stock market maoe snother struggle today against the tendency to reaction, but uitinmieiy suc- comoea and yielded to a lower level. Net declines ran to between one and two points or many prominent stocks. An Important Influence in alscouraglng the enorts to hold the market was the heavy and per sistent liquidation lu United fc) tales bteel preferred. The fact that much of tins selling was attributed to ftttsourg account gave it a ainster Import to the speculative mind, owing to the special facilities of In formation as to trade condition at that Iron anu steel center. The weekly review by the leading authority In the trade was als) regarded aa decldeuly unfavorable owing lb the continued accumulation of stocks of pig Iron notwithstanding a contraction In production in the last two months unpre cedented for suddenness and amount. The increase In accumulation la said to apply to the southern furnace as well aa to the northern, notwithstanding the heavy sales reported In the southern market. Tha ex istence of a better current demand for pig Iron failed to offset the sftect of this unfavorable showing as did the favorable report of the better tons of the market for structural steel. United States Steel preferred ran oft three points In the nnaj dealings thus deciding the tons of tha mar ket wnlch had been wavering and uncer tain up to that time. Tha furtoua speculation In Brooklyn transit continued but served rather tq cause distrust than to foster sn advance owing to a lack of authoritative Informa tion of any substantial grounds for the buying of this stock. The stock opened at a decline of 3 to 4 points and after num erous fluctuations to 63 fell back to the lowest and closed there. The publication of the briefs filed by tha defendents In the Northern Securities case brings Into th near perceptive tha pend ing conditions In that case after the argu ment to be heard next Monday. There la a general feeling that thla decision may have an overshadowing effect on the secur ities market. The danger of money flurries before the and of toe year, while preparations are making tor the annual settlements, also comes up for consideration. The summary of tetuins made by national banks throughout the country as of November 17 Is not altogether reassuring. With an In crease In individual deposits over last rear of nearly tvW.Ouo.UiO the total cash held by tha banks shows a shrinkage of over $14. OOu.OOO while the loan Item haa expanded nearly $122,000,000. Compared with the con dition at tha time of the previous call on September 9 of this year there la ahown an Increase In Individual deposits of nearly $J0,0u0,0tiO and In United States deposits of over $12,000,000. Notwithstanding a contrac tion In loans of upward of $14,000,000, the cash holdings of the banks have declined for the same period $34,770,249. In the Items due to other national and stats banks snd trust comcanles there la, however, a fal ling off of upward of $b0,000.000 since the September statement, it was not until near the close of the market that the sum mary waa published of tha domestic export for- November. These show an increase over November Of last year of $34,787,24$. owing to the unprecedented value of tha cotton exports which reached nearly $t8, OuO.OOO. the largest ilgure for any month In the history of the country. The persistent Inward movement of gold which waa sup plemented again today needs no other ex planation. The stock market closed rather irregular but near the lowest of tha day. The tone of the bond market waa easy. Total sales par value were $J,6O6,000. United States 2a declined V per cent on th last call.

The advance was the signal for considerable bear pressure, and as the mar ket started downward rumors wer circu lated that a strong bear clique had been formed In th theory that th continued bull movement Is offsetting in the populsr mind th government small crqp esti mate, when It was found that damsnd In th spot markets was falling off. Interior recelpta-wer also running full, although ths port movements show a subsiding ti n dency and th accumulation of stocks at the Interior towns is believed to point to a good Increase In the week's visible supply figures. Notwithstanding these figures the market showed great stubbornesa under pressure.

The bulk of the early, arrival was disposed of In fairly good season, but It waa late before a clearance waa made. There were about twenty-five cars 4f corn-fed steers Included In th receipts and the, market was very slow, with th tenoency or Buyers 10 near 10 luaraw. Some of the cattle were of good Quality and flesh, but still even those were not as active as they might have been. Th mar ket could ptobabiy best be described by calling It slow and steady to a little lower. the greatest change being oa the unde sirable grades. There was a good demand for the better grades of cows snd heifers and such kinds could be quoted steady and in soma piacea sales . were made that looked a little .stronger, especially than yesteeday's late market. Cannera also held about steady but ths medium kinds dragged and In most cases were a little lower. Packers do not want the corn-feds unices they ar good, and aa a result ths half-fat kinds sell to very poor advantage. Bulls, veal calves and stags sold generally steady. There were not many on sale and the prices paid were not enough different to b worthy of mention. The atocker snd feeder market was also slow and if anything price were a little lower. Something very desirable might have commanded, steady prices, but that kind were very scare. The general run were certainly s,ow sale, with th feeling weaker. The run of western range cattle was vary small this morning and in fact there were not enough to make a fair teat of the mar ket. As a general thing they fluctuated 'about the same a noted above for th na tives. Representative sales? No. Av. Pr. No. At.
