The Omaha speculative imtrket in grain was very dull. broKers being cautious. The lmg continued bulling or pi leva tnrounh rumora and lha nuanlpjiaiion of Ar rrroor and others had cujk1 the mora con ervatlve element to withdraw irom Ina floor In Chicago and aa a consequence the market fljctuaied largely on emn-,1 transactions. The heavy liquidation an coarse grain caused lha market to de cUna sharpiy from the opening and a alutnp of centa un May cum followed on the Chicago. Omaha almost mat this. The almost positive assurance of war helped to hold the whpit up a little. A rahy for the rlorlng hour waa expected aa morning but waa not realised. May corn waa the tnly future whjch en gaged Omaha speculators. It opened stronger than at Chicago where the ..pn Ing waa So off from the close of Satur day rYom a bid of 45c It declined sharplv to 44c and then rallied So.

DOUBLE THREAT FACED WITH COMPOSURE Aetlea et Market Regarded Geeal la Fare ef Fact that thleage aaal Beatea Flrea Beth Orea. sleaeal Paalea. ,JEW YORK. Feb. S -The stock market today had to face the two-fold effect of the fire In Baltimore and the breaking off dip lomatic relations hiv.aii iiu-t 1 Japan, either of which was sufficient to ! Justify a break. That the events were not sumcienny discounted waa clearly enough shown by the demoralised condition of t:ie trade on the Parts Bourse, which Is the Point upon which the effects of RusnUa troublea would narrowly converge. But our own market fared this douhie threat with great apparent compoaure at the opening, the first decline falling to carry pricea down to the parity of the London level before trading began. Support was evidently uut Into the market and prices Milled and a quiet tone that seemed one of cmfldence was brought about. It la d-iubtful whether this wan effective in convincing anybody that the slight spilling out of stocks at the opening measured ths whole effect upon the Baltimore disaster. Th harm already accomplished waa sufficient to mark the event aa a great national calamity and "here was nothing doing in 'he early part of the dy to In dicate the ultimate limits of the damage. It was early perceived that the dimensions of the disaster already exceeded those of -v mvvlnn. fleA In v. ( . .... w..k. . j possible exception, with the record of the 11 rago rre itself In Imminent danger of being exceeded. When It Is borne In mind that both the Chlcsgo fire and the Roston fire were the occasion of stock exchange panics the action of the present to-k mar ket must he regarded as good. The liquida tion, which waa an Inevitable consequence of the wiping out of property value ap proaching the cost of the war with Spain, caused declines during the day In the principal active stocks from 1 to over a points. The rally of the last hour demonstrated that short selling to a considerable extent went hand In hand with the liquidation and was not backed with sufficient confidence, to leave contracts open over night. The re lapse in prices failed however, to attract any effective demand for stocks, leaving the outlook still uncertain. Baltimore Ohio was nnturallr a special sufferer ow ing to local causes. P4insvlvan'a was heavllr sold J1 day with expressions of dlsaatlsfic'lnn over Its heavv borrowl-g. I'nlon Pacific was a conspicuous suffrer. Some of the day's selling, both of stocks and of bonds, wss attributed to the ac count of the Insurance companies In rep aration for the heaw claims to ne met. All other considerations dlsirpeared before the two great fpctora of the fire and the war. Ponds were weak.

II. 71. 74 SHEEP There was quits a liberal run here this morning but the msrket on any thing decent held generally aleady wiih the close of Inst week. There was s.mi shipping demaaal and that helpctl tn hold up the market. The choicer grades were easy to dispose of but when it same to the commoner kinds the market wa slow and salesmen found It a difficult matter to dis pose ot what they had at fully steady prices. The bulk of the arrivals was dia poaed of in fairly good setaeon but a clear ance waa not made until rather a late hour. There is nothing new to be raid about feedera aa receipts are very light and prices unchanged.
