Over the Present
Argentine Treacher and -crop condition have
fcr some time been important Influences. In the
speculative markets of this country, and in a
somewhat lejened way In those of Europe.
I nsettled -weather baa prevailed in the South
American republic for several .weeks, the" pe
riods of fine weather being few and iar be-:
ttreep, besides short-lived. Claims of damage
and denials of serious damage have been made.
besides assertions that damage was only to
the quality, and not to the quantity.
Te fact that a crop reporter has been sent
to the Argentine from this country to investj
gate and report the crop condition, and -that
th'.c person was employed by a Minneapolis
gra'n house that figured prominently In the
rurt care In the Spring wheat crop, which re
ports have bn proven by the Government's
crop statements to have been grossly exag
gerated. says tho Modern Miner, made the
fade -f both America and Europe discredit
tht advices ho cabled to his house. However,
t!sey exerted an Influence in domestic centers
at t.m when market was in a receptive
csrd't'on for anything of a bullish character.
The !ateat and most reliable cable from the
Argentine report the weather improving;. One
cable read. "Weather clear and fine: wheat
harvest operations proceeding- favorably."
Foreign markets that draw supplies from
Seuth American exporting countrjes evince
no uneasiness over the situation there.
The special correspondent of the Northwest'
em Miller cabled from Buenos Ayrefi, under
date of December 18:

MEW YORK MARKET. .
DuIInen of. Trading, Is .Profound at
uarge up era tors wun
NEW YORK, Dec 2a The strength cn tc-
fiay6 dull market was due lo the light offer
ings of stocks. The dullness was really pro
found: at times. The total for the day, al
though only .about 500,000 shares, conveys no
adequate Idea of tho .dullness, as this bUsi
nees, small as it was, was largely concentrat
ed In a few active stocks. The operators on
a large scale, who have made the great mar
kets of the recent past, seem to have with
drawn by common consent, and to have left
the dealings to a smaller, but still progres
sive class. There la a pretty general agree
ment that revived activity IS; not to be looked
for until 'after tho holiday period. The large
energies - and resources devoted to the great
annual setuemenis-civeri mucn irom tne stocu
mcrktst. This factor eems less operative than
usual this year, owing to the abundance -of
money offerings in the Joan "market. Tho call.
loan rate swms to begin to. stiffen toward the
end of the year, and little is done at as high
3 per cent. The loans are made on time
for periods up (o six months, hot at 3H Bd
3 per cent and there is only a languid de
mand even at these rates. Pressure continues
upon the urgent supply, and also upon that of
London, the average 'being in favor of Berlin.
Along with the central aeretment In the
probability of dull trading until New Years
are expressions of confidence In higher prices
when the market does become active again.
These expressions of confidence Influnce the
small buying such as was In evidence today.
Attention la alert also to discover eigne of the
investment buying which it la an old tradition
to look for In Wall street during December.
This Is supposed to come from capitalists who
expect to receive dividends and Interest at the
first of the year and- will see an advantage In
securing their desired holdings before others
who are seeking the same ends. The picture
of capitalists of resources sitting .down to
await the Immediate receipt of their increment
of wealth for new outlad&e not appeal for
its grea,t veruimiutudQ to all demands.

WHEAT WEAK. AT START
REAK IN' LIVERPOOL PRICES
CAUSES EASE ATCHICAGO.
Heavy Movement In tha Northwest
. Adds to the Depression Later
Revival Not Upheld.
CHICAGO. Dec 20. The greatest weakness
in the wheat market waa manifested at the
Immediate opening. Under the Influence of
a sharp break In prices at Liverpool, Initial
quotations here showed substantial losses, the
May option being off c to e. at $1.10 to
$1.10. According to a prominent British crop
statistician, the decline at Liverpool waa
caused by holders reselling Argentine cargoes
and by late offerings of parcels, from that
country at lowar figures. Another factor that
contributed to weakness here was the heavy
movement In the 2Corthwt, arrivals at Min
neapolis and Duluth today being 478 caw.
against 424,-cars the. corresponding day a year
ago. The start shorts took advantage of the
lower prices. and covered freely. Congested
conditions of the December delivery caused a
quick advance In the price of that option,
other optldns rising In sympathy. The revival
of bullish sentiment was aided by small re
ceipts In the Southwest. On the upturn May
sold up to $1.11. Realisms sales caused an
other reaction late In the day, and tho mar
ket closed ' easy. Final" quotations, on May
were $1.10, a loss Of c.
Corn was weak throughout the day. Baying
by shorts had a steady effect. May closed c
down, at 45c ,
The volume of tradlnr in cats waa light.
May closed unchanged at 31c
Provisions were easier, as a result of a
small decline In prices at the 'yards. Senti
ment later- became firmer on a demand from
packers. At the close May pork and lard were
each up 2c. and ribounchanged.
