GREAT RUSH TO SELL
Squall Sweeps Over NewYork
VIOLENT BREAK IN PRICES
In a Rally Near tha End Nearly All
the Losses Were Recovered "
Wide Fluctuations in
NEW YORK. Dec. S. A violent squall
wept over the stock market today, which
wrought havoc while it lasted, bat which was
dissipated almost as quickly as It came. Com
pared with the stormy scenes of the day, the
final market was as placid as a Summer lake
and the buying of stocks was going on as
ryatematleally aa if no disturbance had oc
curred. A review of tho day's net changes reveals
not a few gains, and even the worst of tho
losses are confined to moderate proportions.
I'nfortunatcly for those who asld their stocks,
either from fright at the crumbling tendency
of price or from necessity to repay borrowed
money, the final prices of the day by no means
represented the prices at which the largest of
the day's sales were made. There was a time
during the market when there was no apparent
demand for stocks at any price. Orders to
sell a few hundred shares could only be ex
ecuted at concession of 1 to 3 points from the
preceding sale. Such haste and confusion
characterized the selling that the same stock
old simultaneously only a few feet apart at
variations of $2 to S3 a share. There was no
each frantic fluctuation as that Jn Northern
Pacific on May 0. 1001. owing to the corner
which existed on that stock, but otherwise
the movements In the market resembled those
on that day, and the day's total sales of
2,003,400 shares compare with 3,051,700 on
Way 9. 1001.
The day probably will go down In the history
of the Stock Exchange as one of those In
which the assurance which usually sustains
men in action on preconceived determinations
deserts them and they do things under the in
fluence of unreasoning panic. A list of some
of the day's extreme declines is the- best evi
dence of this fact, taken in connection with
the subsequent almost complete recoveries,
when reason had reasserted Its control. Col

The rapidity arid" Violence of this shrinkage
of values abundantly accounts for the fears
aroused by lenders of money on stock collateral
and the urgent demands for additional margins
ent out by brokers carrying stocks for cus
tomers. There was undoubtedly some sudden
discrimination against the character of col
lateral, which added to the stringency of the
The source of the selling was not accurately
known, and it seemed to come from widely
distributed sources. It was somewhat remark
able that reports of financial embarassmcnts
did not get afloat at any time during the
break. The call money rate went slightly
above the season's previous maximum, but as
everybody was liquidating loans, the actual
supply of cash was being replenished Instead
The sererc break In tho foreign exchange
market reflected a .quick resort to that .source
of relief, and there were largo offerings of
bankers' finance fcllls in that market. Lon
don's heavy absorption of our stocks on the
break also made a large supply of exchange.
The same was true of foreign, purchases of
cotton and grain on the break In those mar
kets under the reflected pressure from the
stock market. The extreme weakness of
Amalgamated Copper had a reflex effect In
the market for copper metal both here and
The first violent recoveries were due to the
scramble among the triumphant bears to re
cover their short contracts, but the more sub
stantial buying sustained the market well to
the strong closing. There was no serious con
sideration of news developments, the specu
lative Inflation and its rupture being held
amply to account for the break.
The bond market was affected In sympathy
with stocks, but In less degree. Total sales,
$9,211,000. United States bonds were un
changed on call.

SHORTAGE IN HOPS.
This Country Shy 19,000 Bales for Homo
TACOMA, Wash., Dec. 8. According to a
table prepared by Herman Klaber & Cc, a
leading Tacoma hop firm, the hop crop of the
United States is "shy" 19,000 bales for home
consumption. Their figures are:
Total crop of the United States 240,000
Exported from New York 40,000
From other Eastern ports 7.000
To Canada. Australia, etc 5,000
En route East tor export, r. 8,000
Thus there are CO. 000 bales exported out of a
crop of 240,000 bales; leaving 180,000 bales In
the country. Imports to this country for the
past ten years have averaged 15,000 bales per
year, which amount would bring the available
hops to 105,000 bales. According to the 'returns
issued by the Department of Agriculture, brew
era of the United States used last year 214.000
bales, and as there are no old hops held over
It will be seen, according to this estimate
that a shortage already exists.

IMPROVEMENT IN THIS DEMAND,
CAUSES RALLY IN WHEAT. .
Chicago Market, After Bearish Open
ing, Overcomes Weakness, and
Final Prices Show Gains.
CHICAGO. Dec 8. Reports of Improved de
mand for flour at Minneapolis helped make a
basis for a strong rally In wheat prices hero
today. At the opening, the market was weak.
May being unchanged to c lower, at $1.106
1.10. One Influence tending to create bearish
sentiment was continued liberal receipts In the
Northwest. Another factor was a Teport of
excellent harvest weather in Argentina. The
effect of yesterday's heavy liquidation was In
evidence early In the day. and with little sup
port tho market became still weaker. Shorts
covered cn the slump, but before the decline
was checked. May had sold off to $1.00. The
sensational break In Wall street la. said to
have indicated telling of wheat here by com
mission houses.: Toward tho middle of the
day, however, the wheat market rallied sharp
ly on liberal purchasing by a leader of the
longs. The early loss- was quickly regained,
and prices soon showed good gains over Initial
quotations. On aa excellent general demand,
the market held strong throughout tbe remain
der of the sesslotu An" unconfirmed report of
large ales of flour at Minneapolis was re
sponsible for much of the late bullishness.
Another factor was the strength of wheat at
St. Louis. Shortly before the close. May
reached $1.11, the highest point of the day.
Final quotations were at $1.11.
Trading In corn wan on a fairly generous
scale, and the market ruled Arm the entire
day. May opened a shode to 6c higher, at
44?s644c mid between 44c and 446c,
and closed at 44c
Depressed receipts had a strengthening effect
on the oats market. May opened unchanged
at 30c, and sold between 30c and 30c, and
closed at 30c
Liquidation of scattered holdings caused
weakness In provisions. At the close May
pork was oft 10612c. at $12.2712.S0; lard
was down 2c at J7.CS, and ribs showed a
loss of 265c. at $6.35.
