11 GRAIN AND PRODUCE MARKET Argentina Wh&t in Pretty Fair Shape After All. SPECULATORS ARE QUITE SCARCE a 2Tr Before In the History of the rii Urn There Been Sncta. a. Lack of Uanibllnor In the Grntn, Options. OMAHA, Dec. 1, MU. After, threshing and rethreshlng the news that has come forward from Ar gentine, the best people In the trade have made, up their minds that the wheat crop there is not In as poor condition as some have been led to believe. They have had ome- "wheat crop losses In the southern hemisphere, but this has been In one or two provinces only, while there has been an Increased acreage In some further provinces, the Incrtase being said to have balanced the losses. When the fact is considered that Argentina s to have an exportable surplus of as much as 90,000 btt., the conditions there aro bearish. In addition to the Improved conditions In Argentine there are the Im provements, in, .Australia. That country has A lot of new wheat thrit her growers are anxious to plspose, and they are ot tering U to the Importing 'countries at lUlte satisfactory prices. v..e ui Iiih uruwuucKn to the strength s well as activity In wheat Is the lack Df speculation. The room trader ts In shd out of the market from day to day apd he takes his profits or losses without any great ado. The outsider, or the pub , lie. Is nojt to be seen In wheat save In a small way, and there will have to be somb greater Inducement in the way of a bull market In order to have him take a hand. The larger speculators who were once to be seen In wheat are out of spec ulation altogether. The trade In Wall street Is also said to be tha smallest In maliy years. The com market, while slumbering for the moment. Is likely to reawaken. Shorts in that market are quite uneasy as to their position, and well they might be. There is no corn for delivery on Decem ber contracts and the shorts are likely to bo unable to prepare enough of that cereal to even up their position before OJeccmbcr has passed.

Slightly Bearish, with a Tcndenoy to Steadiness Every where. NO MONEY FOR SPECULATION Call Loans Touch O Pr Cent, While Rates on Others Are Somewhat FirmerPoor Showings by Railroads. NEW YORK. Dec. 1. Although the stock market was confronted today with a variety of factors undeniably bearish It maintained a fair degree ot steadi ness. In the forenoon prices ot the fa vorite shares were marked up slightly and In the later trading they developed an easier tendency In spar. In the afternoon the market was motionless for long periods. The monetary situation was unfavor able for speculation. Call money opened at 8 per cent and time rates were firmer. Call funds relaxed later, but In view Of the poor Saturday's bank statement and the shipment ol 32.50J.OJ0 gold today to San Francisco the prospect tor easy money In the lnimedlate future was none too good. December is always a i month of un certainty owing to preparations for heavy disbursements at the beginning of the year. The Jlttolutlon suit against the Ameri can company caused sharp declines in Can common a,nd preferred, but was of lttt e Influence, on tn market as a whole, as the suit had been long expected. Traders are withholding Judgment as to the effect on the stock market of the government's policy toward corporations until they obtain a hotter Idea ot the present administration's probable pro cedure. The regular session of congress having begun It la believed that the administra tion's policy will soon be made known definitely. October railroad statements of some of the large eastern systems were poor.' Pennsylvania's operating Income de creased $2,079,000. New York Central re ported a decrease In not of 83,352,000. Bonds were Irregular. Total sales, par value, 8850.000. United States bonds were unchanged on call. ftumuvr ol na.ee nd leading quotations vii eiutita went; Btlfs. High. Low. Clot.

This Is 600 larger than last week, but nearly 4.000 smaller than the same day last year. The market opened out steady to strong, light stuff selling about steady, while heavies looked to be a shade higher, There waa not much of a de mand for lights, however, and while a few scattering loads landed at steady figures early, the later trade was not nearly so good. As a general thing light stutf was very hard to move, and values were weaker In the majority of cases. Prices paid ranged anywhere from 37.00 to 17.50. In spite ot the weakness ot light stuff, heavies held up well and while a few loads that came In late were rather hard to move the general market on weighty hogs can be quoted as steady to strong. Bulk of the sales waa made around J7.60 67.70 and tops sold at 17.75, the same as on Saturday. Beef steers were slow sellers all day, but In the end about everything was dis posed of. As compared with lost week's higher prices the market today was 10 l6o lower. Cows and heifers showed about the same decl'ne as beef steers, being In most cases around 1016c lower than last week. Ko.

SO SHEEP Considering a very good Mon day's run ot sheep and lambs on sale, bearish advices from Chicago and some of the other outside points and the wet ness of the local receipts on account of rain this morning n fairly, good market prevailed on killers. Prices on good fat lambs were fully steady and mutton of ferings steady to strong and In spots a little higher as compared with the clone of last week. Most ot the stuff offered was cornfed, being principally lambs and a light sprinkling of ewes and wethers. The best fat lambs sola at a range ot J7.301T7.o0, according to weight and quality and the latter price was aa high as any lambs sold tor the day. As was the case several days last week some of the warmed-up or halt-tat lambs did not sell as readily as the better kinds and In Instances prices had an easier tendency. Included In the sales of aged sheep were two-double decks of fed western ewes that brought aa much aa 11.40, wtth less desirable grades selling on down to tl.25 and some common to fair kinds at 14.00. Trade being lively as a rule pretty nearly everything fat was In the hands ot the packers by io:30 o'clock. The trade in feeder lambs nnd ewes wss much the samo as It has been ot late. witn uitie it any variation as to either prices or demand. Them were about enough recder oirerings on hand to meet the current demand and as a result trade had fair activity and a satisfactory clearance.

The city for some time past has been In danger ot an epidemic ot scarlet fever and diphtheria.

Many weird experiences have the In spectors accumulated during the last two months In an attempt to enforce the quarantine laws. They have been com pelled at times to break down the doors of neoptn who were suspected of diseases and who would not accept the services of a phystqtan, At other times they have searched through packing houses for men and women who had broken quarantine, even going so far as to use physical strength when everything else failed. The officers of the health department have had to threaten sometimes with fire nrms men who refused to obey tho orders of the city physician. Schhiellng contends that If the city would provide a separate house for the care ot such as were af fected with contagious diseases the pa tients could be taken out and regregated without danger to tho city at large.
