time local trading Is very light, and values are
almost nominal. It la not probable that farm
ers could be found who would sell eiub wheat
on a basis cf,S5c Portland,' and at the easae
time dealers doubt whether they ceuld ell
even at this price.

REACTION IN THE STOCKS
BEARS RAID PRICES WITH CON
Outsiders Inclined to Sell Out Their
HoldingsEasier Money Con
ditions Are Expected.
NEW YORK. Feb. 2S. The reactionary tend
ency in stocks gained force today, and was
of more lniluenoe oa speculative eeatimeat
than, yeeterday. The day's operations dls
cloeed a weU-organlzed bear party In the trad
ing, and their attacks on prices and the suc
cess that met them were testimony to the
vulnerable condition into which the speculative
situation had fallen.
The falling back of prices was net attended
with unfavorable aews developments, and was
dearly due to technical causes. For one thing
the newcomers In the market for the outside
public were disappointed at having bought
stocks yesterday morning at the top level, only
to see them decline. There was. In conse
quence, a eignlflsant decrease In the outside
demand for stocks and an Inclination by the
outsiders to cell out hokHRgs. The failure of
confirmation by official announcements of any
ot the numerous reports recently circulated
beget a .spirit of timidity among buyers. Many
buyers' were prompted to take profits offered
rather than ran the risk of the failure of re
ported projects to be consummated. The
shaky conditions of prices yesterday bed the
effect of inducing the placing ot stop-loss or
ders to a very large extent at prices below
the current level as a precautionary measure.
In the recent feverish condition of the mar
ket, brokers have been lacliaed to insist o&
this measure ot precaution oa the part ot
cuatomerz. This condition by the bears, who
could be sure to 'buy In and cover their shorts
at a profit If onee these stop-Ions orders were
uncovered. The action ot the market shewed
very plainly that raiding tactics were resorted
to, 'wide declines and sudden recoveries stow
ing the eager haste to raver shorts on the
part ot bears.
Recent favorites In the speculation were
naturally most vulnerable, and New York Cen
tral. Union PaeMc. Southern Pacific and Penn
sylvania, consequently suffered most severely
la live day's movement. . In the pericd of re
covery, special stocks were pushed upward
apparently with the purpose ot supporting the
market and extending the rally. Amalgamated
Copper, the New York tractions, Erie and a
number ot epeeialUea, including the high-grade
Industrial!, made such, advances from time to
lime. The immlsesee ot the hearing la the
Northern Securities appeal may have been an
influence in the realist ag which was In prog
ress, as the expected decision in that care has
been made the baaia for euoh long dob tiaued
move2nt In the various stocks affecied that
further results from the aaBOUBcemectt are
hardly to be expected. Yesterday's advance
in United States Steel came to a pause, al
though further heavy purchases of pig iron
by this corporation were reported.
The day's record clearing-house balances and
exchanges only slightly below the highest rec
ord, witnessed the heavy requirements ot the
Southern I'aciftc bead payment made yester
day. With this operation completed, easier
mosey oondithwa are to be expected, but this
did not serve to cheek the speculative liquid v
Uon ta stock!. The feeble rally aggravated
the tendency to throw over stocks, and the
pressure increased, making low prices for the
day In the flaal dealings, and making a de
csdedty weak dosing. New York. Central's
Iota ran to nearly 5 points, and the other
active speculative leaders were down from
2 to Z points.
