Th further Jump 4n grain and the drop in cotton are the empirical Indication ef a warlike outcome. Hut the highly artifi cial condition In -the commodity market due to the excessive si.eculatlv commit ment give them a feverish nalbllity that rob them of safety as an index of condition. The most Important event of the day to th financial market was the ten-day' notice given by the secretary of the treas ury of a demand for payment, of 20 per cent of government deposits with national bank. This calls for about $.TO,000,OuO, pay able at New York. It la highly probable, therefore, that Interior government de- Rosltarle will draw on their deposit with tew York banks to meet the government' call. As the secretary' call say nothing of further withdrawal of deposits In con templation, ome relief wa afforded from th effect caused by Intimations heard yesterday that the first call was soon to be followed by another for 10 per cent more of - deposit. Conjectural estimate of th effect on the money ' market here of the Panama carml fnyrrierft have been counted on the proportion to be drawn from the treasury aa so much-additional resource released to the money markets. The realisation 'ha been growing that a larger portion than at first supposed would have to be met by withdrawal of government deposit and the quiet acceptance- given by the market to the secre tary's call shows that it amount liad been pretty accurately' foreseen In financial cir cle. A to the effect on the money mar ket of these withdrawals it 1 clearly de pendent upon the skill of the baofclnjr in terests In maklne; the anymBU. ,'TlwrJ la ar .general belief tkat-NeWkf erk tuuk) are to be made depositaries-n: betyUf f tha foreign stockholders of be .payments from the government and that these bank have made -extensive Jnvestment in for eign exchange already to provide for th remittance of the sums due to foreigners. War talk was responsible for the sharp recession of prices just, at tho close, whloh was therefore rather weak.

Advices from other Belling point were indicating a steady market and that. Was the feeling here. While .the ide round wa not very urgent packers all seemed to want a few loads and buyers for the most part were out In good season and the offerings Were mostly cleaned up early In the forenoon. Beef steers of good quality were scarce, the great bulk of the offering consisting of common to medium kind. Buyers, how ever, took the best of them at steady price, while common kinds were loner. The same might be said of cow stuff, for as Id a from a few. good heifers there waa not much in sight that could be called very desirable. Bulls, stags,- veal calve, eta.', sold In about th same notches as yesterday. Stockers and feeder were in moderate upply and the market waa without any very material change.
