THE -MORNING OREGONIAN, ?AVUBDAT, DECEMBER 8, 1900.
Thursday's treakness in the wheat mar
ket was followed yesterday by a decid
edly better feeling, a fractional advance
being noted all around. This caused
some Improvement In prices In the local
roarket and was about the only feature
of the trade situation which showed any
change. There was the usual brisk de
snand for stores for the Saturday trade,
and prices ruled steady. The delayed ar
rival of the California steamer left the
market short In some lines of producer,
"but the shortage, was. not sufficiently pro
nounced? to- make any difference In prices.
Eggs are Secidedly weaker and some deal
ers ftere offering guaranteed Oregon
stock as ovr as; 27 6ents,with others'
holding off fpr30cents. Eastern.are still
arriving but 25- cents Is the top figure
for the- best stock, and none of that which
Is now coming Is very good. JPoultry Is
doing -much better this wek and good
chickens were moving all right "yesterday
at t per dozen. There tAs" quite a lot
-of dressed chickens on themarket and
they were selling fairly well at 10 cents

No matter whether wheat goes up with
a. bound, or down with a thud, the same
difficulty in securing accurate quotations'
, Js experienced. Open quotations yesterday
were anywhere around 53 and 54 cents,
and sales -of Walla Walla were made
- at 54 and 55 cents. At the same time, a
oargo was sold" yesterday at 25s 6d. and
freights are firm at 42 shillings, so that!
It Is apparent that the more 53-cent wheat
a man bought for any other purpose but
holding on speculation the worse off he'
would be. Bluestem is nominally 57 cents.
The Eastern and foreign markets were
slightly better yesterday, a decidedly bull
ish factor being very small Argentine

KEMUORK STOCK MARKET.
Expectation of Unfavorable Bank
Stntemeni Causes a, De-Clae.
NEW TORK, Dec 7. The pfospect or
a. decline In cash resources of the banks
of upwards of $7J0MXX proved too much
for the fortitude of speculators today and
they sold stocles. reversing the movement
of yesterday. .Although they had the ad
vantage of new points of strength
in a number of individual stocks
among the low-priced stocks, a demoral
ised tone in one or two of the industrials
more than offset this advantage. The
Subtrcasury alone has taken up from the
banks during'the week $6,100,000, Including
the deposits at the Subtreasury for tele
graphic transfer to the Interior. The di
rect movement by express, although sup
posed to be -small on balance, is certain
ly in favor of the Interior. There
Is a suspicion also that the local move
ments of cash which, have helped out the
showing of the banks for the last few
weeks are not to be relied on this week.
These gains have been due to a large ex
tent to the operations of a single bank.
In which is centered some of the most
Important Interests In the financial world,
including copper mining stocks.
The course of Amalgamated Coppqr
durfng the week has given rise" to the
apprehension that Interests-identified with
it need not be expected to have taken
measures to conserve the general money
market situation The loan item also Is
the subject of much perplexed surmise.
While there has been some speculative
liquidation in. the .stock market, there
has been some large borrowing fpr "out
side financial operations. Including the
subscriptions to a $10,000,000 issue 6?
Third-Avenue Railroad bonds, which also
closed the day with announcement that
it has been largely over-subscribed. If
there has been any considerable loan ex
pansion, double effect on the -surplus re
serves may prove somewhat sensational,
especially with the most tring period of
the year on the money market to be im
Liquidation was not urgent in the
stock market, but was quite general.
Even the Erie securities yielded tem
porarily on the denial of a story at
tempting to explain their movement; by
alleging that the company had purchased
the Pennsylvania Coal Company. Both
,the stocks and bonds rallied subsequent
ly to top prices. 'Besides tHis, strength
was shown by the St. Louis & San
Francisco stocks, led by the second pre
ferred with an advance of 29J, and the
.New York, Chlcagp & St. Louis, led by
the second preferred with an, advance of
4. On the other hand there tvas. con
tinued weakness In Tennessee Coal & Iron
on persistent rumors that the dividend
would be passed. The stock fell at one
time 2V4. and after fluctuating feverishly
closed within of the lowest.
Pacific Mall broke nearly 4 points on
the large decrease In the net earnings re
ported for October. The unsatisfactory
results of the meeting of Western rail
road presidents to enforce the observance
of freight rates helped to depress the rail
road list. There was weakness.-ln People's
Gas, Tobacco and the local tractions. The
closing was moderately -active and easy,
and many stocks were at the lowest,
Business in bonds continued large.
There- was profit- taking In some of the
speculative issues, but there was a nota
ble increase, in the demand for high
grade bonds, which made the market very
broad. Total sales par value, $4,133,000.
United States 3s and 5s declined per

NEW TORK. Dec. 7. The Commercial
Advertiser's London financial cablegram
The markets here were less active and
generally heavy today. Americans were
dull early, and weakened further on New
Tork advices, but the declines were most
ly small. Denver & Rio Grande preferred
closed under the best, the market here
thinking the price is high enough, com
pared with, say. Atchison preferred. Erles
were better. The chief feature In them
was the rise In the general mortgage
Hens, which New Tork bought. Missouri
Pacifies were rather favored. Money was
An better demand, owing to the exchequer
bonds, but rates were steady, as the
market was overprovlded. A supple
mentary estimate of 16,000.000 for ex
penditures in South Africa and China
had no effect The best opinion Is that
borrowing will be postponed until the
Stock In Loudon.

CHICAGO, Dec. 7. The wheat market
began the day with a show of firmness
on IIveYpbol's steadiness in the face of
the loss here yesterday, the light Ar
gentine shipments-and a cable announc
ing that rain was interfering with har
vesC work In that country. January
wheat -opened 4gO higher, at 71c to
71c, and sold during the first half hour
to TlVic The crowd was Inclined to be
bearish, however, and the bulge met lib
eral selling under the theory that con
tinued liberal receipts and outside un
willingness to buy were not conditions
calculated io sustain prices. January,
therefore, was gradually pressed down
during the forenoon at 70H715c At
this point the market was reinforced by
a fresh supply of bullish news. Holland
and Portugal were reported at sword's
point, and the seaboard as well as Minne
apolis reported a stlffer cash demand.
The receipts of this news caused a rally
toTlSgc, and the close -was firm, c over
yesterday. at'TlUc -
Corn started out strong. This wns par
ticularly true of December, which felt
keenly the fact that the receipts, 211
cars, contained no corn of contract
grade. The weather was unfavorable for
grading future arrivals, which was also
a potent Influence. December was In
good demand early, but was offered free-i
ly on the bulge. The last half of tho
session was quiet and the trade profes
sional. May was rather quiet through
out, closing a shade higher at- C63S3ic.
Light receipt", small shipments and the
usual lack of interest ruled the oats mar
ket. Close, He higher, at 23c
Provisions opened lower, in sympathy
wltha drop in hog prices and Liverpool's
quotation of bacon 6d lower. The mar
ket steadied with 'wheat and corn later
in the day, but closed with a small loss.
January pork sold between $12 25 and
$12 12& and closed 5c lower, at $12 20;
January lard, between $6 S2V and J6 87$.

FIRST SHIP OF BRITISH NAVY
It Wa Built by Henry VII and Wan
Called the Great Harry.
The first ship, properly speaking, of
the British Navy, known as the Great
Harry, was built by King Henry VII, at
a cost of 14.000. and was burnt at Wool
wich, through accident, in 1553. By hi$
prerogative, and at his own expense, he
laid the foundation and settled the con
stitution of the present Royal Navy. An
Admiralty and Navy Office were consti
tuted aid commissioners were appointed
by him; regular salaries were settled not
only for the Admirals and VIce-Admlrals,
but far his Captains also and seamen, and
the sea Bervlce at that time became a
distinct and .regular profession. Henry
it was, too, wno founded the Deptford,
Woolwich and Portsmouth dockyards and
the Trinity House.
Having entered Into a league, against
France, Henry fitted out a fleet, under
the command of Sir Edward Howard.
Lord High Admiral, In tho engagement
which took place between the French
and British fleets in August, 1512, the. Re
agent, a ship of 1000 tons, which was at
that time the largest vessel in the British
Navy,, was burnt, and, to replace it, the
Great Harry, or, as it was also known,
the Henry Grace do Dleu, was built In
1515. Tho vessel appeared to be of about
1000 tons burden, and was manned by
349 soldiers, 301 mariners and 50 gun
ners. She had four masts and portholes
on both decks and in other parts. Be
fore the time of her construction the can
non were placed above deck and on the
prow or poop.
In a list of the British Navy, as It stood
on January 5, 154S, the Great Harry is
said to have carried 19 brass and 103
iron pieces of ordnance The name of
the ship is supposed to have been changed
in the reign of Edward VI to The Edward,
which, on August 26, 1552, was reported
to be still "in good case to serve."
A Bad Beginning.
Many Republicans will be sorry to bear
that the ship subsidy bill is to he taken
out of the regular order of business and
put through Congress with a rush before
anything else is attended to. Rightly or
wrongly, this bill, which as a law will
begin by taking $9.000.000 a, year from the

Tvrenty.Rival Sects "Worship at the
Holy Scpnlcher in Jerusalem.
Writing In the December Ladies' Home
Journal on "Jerusalem as We See It To
dqyf" Mrs. Lew Wallace notes that "there
Is a common lament that the shrines dear
alike to Jew and Christian are In keep
ing of the Mohammedan. For a thousand
years they have been guarded with rev
erence and decorum by armed officials,
tolerant of every religion. Were Palestine
in keeping of American Protestants, de
basing our sanctuaries Into eating-houses
and concert-rooms, I" fear Gethscmane
would become a park for picnics, and the
Holy Sepulcher, the shrine of shrines, be
made a hall for socials. Twenty rival
sects worship- there In peace and -safety.
Were the Turkish guard withdrawn there'
would be fighting with paving stones and
conrecrated candle-sticks, If other wea

The pastor of an Eastern church stated re
cently that certain teachers In his Sunday
school were paid for their services. Accord
ing to the pastor, the prime requisite of a
capable teacher Is the ability to tell stories.
That Is the form in which moral lessons can
best be conveyed. And good story-tellers, be
concludes, are always worthy of their hire.
