Car Situation Is a Little Better, But There
Is Much Room for Improvement.
Wheat prices In this market are practi
cal ly nominal. There is a little more busi-,
ness under way than was the case last week,
when all the exporters were out of the mar
ket, but the volume of trade now passing
Is scarcely enough to make a market. A
very small improvement may be nofed In the
car situation, but the lak of cars is still
to serious as practically to paralyze busi
ness. There must bo great improvement in
this respect .before the wheat movement
reaches normal proportions.
The railroad situation l also responsible
for Inactive conditions in the barley and
ouw -markets. Thtre Is a fair demand for
itf-t- cereals, but .defers and 'shippers are
laiuH-apped in Ailing orders by the lack of
Jobbers Are Not Complaining of the Course
the Market Has Taken.
No further changes were announced In
t he sugar market yesterday. One of the
l-trgst local handlers of sugar made this
: ly.tement last evening:
"A story printed in an evening paper to
the ehVct tli at the Portland Jobbers have
)o:.t a lrge sum in sugar is entirely without
foundc i ion. Even if the Jobbers had met
: h h ss, t his would be known only to
l Ik iiis Iv and certainly would be no one
ct.-e'H business. As a matter of fact, what
speculative sugai the Portland jobbers have
on hand var, as a rule, purchased at a low
figure. I do not see what right such out
ttders have to pry Into the private business
of mercantile houses."
Only Low Prices Will Move Stock Other
Poultry In Demand.
The poultry market was liberally stocked
yesterday. Chickens moved somewhat bet
ter, but at low prices. Most of the day s
sales were made around 10 cents. Higher
prices are not looked for until the railroads
to the north are opened. There was a strong
demand for geese at 10 cents and ducks sold
readily at 14 to 30 cents. Live turkeys were
also in request at 17 to 18 cents. Dressed
turkeys did not .sell so well unless choice.
The egg market was active for both Ore
con and Eastern stock.
Buiter moved steadily at former prices.
Bananas Are Due Today.
Four cars of b&nanas arrived over the
Southern Pacific last night and will be de
livered today. A ear of bananas en route to
Tacoma was in the railroad yards all day
e.nd may be disposed of here. A good ship

Trade was only fair.

Stock Prices Governed, by
Course of Money Market. "
But Mucli UosislaiKB Is Shown to
Pressure and There Is Evidence
of Underlying Strength.
Jump In Pacific Mail.
NEW TORK. Nov. 21. There was a good
deal of uncertainty in the movement of the
prices of btocks today, the varying fluctua
tions being mostly traceable to the chang
ing course of the rute for call loans. When
the ralo ran up to 10 per cent in the first
hour, th resulting downward movement of
stocks was fairly comprehensive! Afterward
the market showed no very consistent tone.
The advances were spotty and uneven, and
there wire important stocks which failed
to respond to the advance.
The general Impression was one of resist
ance to pressure and of underlying strength.
The recession tn the money rate was al
lowed to huve an important influence in the
The action of the money market was.
puzzling. The rise of the two previous days
was. In spite of factors, suyposcd to be
working for the replenishment of. loanable
funds, whll today's easing of money con
ditions seemed Inconsistent with the ces
sation of some of yesterday's favoring influ
ences. Thu recent upward course of New
York exchange at Chicago was reversed to
day, in spite of the attraction of the money
rate of yesterday snd this morning. The
possibility of a recurrence of the interior
demand for currency is not lost sight of and
the Interior exchanges are carefully watched
for Indications ol It. There was deposited
at the Sub-Treasury also 750,000 for tele
graphic transfer to an Francisco, said to
be attributable to the active work of re
construction going on in that city.
Foreign money -markets were disturbed by
the new demand for gold from Brazil, which
is making inroads on the Bank of Eng
land. London sentiment was quieted by re
ports of additional sums to be relinquished
by the Bank of France for London.
Time-money rates here continued to re
cover from Monday's recession In spite of
the decline in the latter call-loan market.
From this lime thtro Is an inclination to
look for some special cause for the course
of the call-loan market.
The yielding of the call-loan rate proved
an ..ffeetive argument for renewed strength
in stocks, notwithstanding the obscurity
about its cause. There was a noticeable di
version of speculative attention to low-priced
stocks and a circulation of rumors to 'ac
count for some of them. The rise in Pa
cittc Mail was clearly enough due - to the
strong slsud for a ship subsidy law taken
by the Secretary of State In his speech at
Kansas city, and the assumption that the
attitude of the Administration on the sub
ject might be thus Inferred. There was a
recurrence of active Interest in the Hill
stocks, Union Pacific and Reading. Illinois
Central relapsed from yesterday's violent
advance and St. Paul, United States Steele

Wheat Market Weak in Spite
of Bullish News.
l-'eature of Day at Chicago Is Re
newed Selling of December
Delivery oy J.ongs' and
Elevator Interests.
CHICAGO. Nov. 21. The feature of to
day's trading in wheat was the renewed sell
ing of the December delivery" by longs and
elevator interests. For a short time after
the opening the matket showed some firm
ness because of a sharp advance in the price
ef wheat at Minneapolis, due to a still fur
ther falling off in receipts. Arrivals today
at Minneapolis and Puluth were about one
half of what they are on the corresponding
day last .year and the price of No. 1 hard at
Minneapolis was quoted ftlic above the De
cember delivery. News from the Southwest
was bullish, an Omaha dispatch stating that
cash houses were bidding a higher premium
for wheat than at any previous time this
season. Despite these advances the market,
after the slight firmness at tha opening,
was inclined to be weak. The total volume
of trading was small. The close was weak,
with prices near the lowest point of the
day. December opened unchanged to a
shad. higher at 73c to 73 iv 74c, sold off
to 73 lie and closed e off at 7314
73 c.
Trading In the corn pit was quiet, but
the market was firm all day. Small local
receipts and wet weather throughout the
corn belt were the sources of strength. De
cember opened 14c to 14 6 c higher at
42V4e to 42'4S'42c, sold up to 42c and
closed rac up at 44(fr44c.
Oats were quiet and steady. There was
a fair demand. December opened a shade
higher at 33c. sold between 33,-4ii33c
and 3333c and closed a shade higher
at 33c.
Although trftdtng in provisions was not
active, tho market was firm all day because
of a decrease In hog receipts at 'Western
packing centers and an Increase in the ship
ments of meat and lard. January pork
was especially strong. Considerable dispo
sition was shown by outsiders to buy prod
ucts for investment. At the close. January
pork was up 15c at $14.7714; lard was 5c
higher at $S,57,4; I'lbs were 5c higher at
