Not Much Animation in Stock
Harrimans Are the Principal Fea
tures of Strength, Union Pacific
Touching the Highest
Point of the Year.
NEW YORK. Nov. 17. Th. character of
today's stock market was much th. asm.
as that of yesterday. Th. current
of theprlce movement was not consistent
at any time during th. day. The show
of strength, which was considerable, was
made np of successive advances of Individ
ual stocks or groups of stocks. These suc
cessive advances were alwaya concurrent
with a sagging tendency In other stocks,
aome of which had been conspicuously
strong earlier in th. day. A market of
this kind suggests artificial support at some
points to facilitate selling at other points.
The decreased animation of the specula
tion wss attributed in a general way to an
exceaa of caution and to the extensive rlso
already achieved, which has reduced the
rate of the Income yield on everything
traded In. Conference, of traffic officials .to
diacuaa proposed freight advances also af
fected these stocks.
There waa a movement of genera! in
fluence In the Harrlman and Hill groups.
Union Pacific, as usual, absorbed a large
proportion of th. day'a total dealings. Ita
rise to In3t carried It through the highest
price touched during 1907. which wa. 183
In January. 'Today, price has been equalled
only In excited .peculation in the atock fol
lowing th. advance in ita dividend rate from
6 to 10 per cent, whiclt carried th. quota
tion up to 1U3S on September 4. luoo. It.
rise today, in which Southern Pacific kept
It company, waa accompanied by revived
rumors of a pending financial plan involv
ing the distribution of assets or increased
dividends. Th. executive committee, of the
two roads met during the day, but ad
journed with an announcement of only rou
tine business transacted.
United States Steel had alternate periods
of heavlneaa and strength. This was true
of practically the whole list, but with ex
treme irregularity throughout the day.
Bonde were strong. Total aalea par value,
$.M3e.o0. United States bonds were un

Sharp Upturn in Wheat at
Further Reduction. of 22,000,000
Bushels in Argentine Crop Is
Estimated Revival in the
Export Demand.
. CHICAGO. Nov. 17. Activity and strength
marked trading in the wheat pit during the
final hour of the session, following a period
of dullness and depression. At the same time
prices advanced 1 to 2 cents from the low
point of the day. The greatest rise waa in
the May delivery- The sharp upturn was due
principally to the reinstalling by a leading
bull of a line of wheat sold out yesterday.
Several bullish features In the news gossip
developed In the meantime to further stimu
late demand, the chief one of these being a
report of a well-known foreign crop statisti
cian which claimed that a further reduction
of approximately 22.000.000 bushels would
have to be made in the estimate of this
year's yield of wheat In Argentina. Another
important factor waa a revival in the export
demand. Winnipeg reported an improved ex
port call also. Demand at 'the principal Eu
ropean grain center, waa responsible for much
of the bullish sentiment. Closing prices on
December were at 1.03fil.M and May
fl.08. - ,

the day. but later became firm. The cash
grain at the sample tables was steady to
Vc lower. The market closed firm at an ad
vance of He compared with the previous

ter demand developed. The market closed
firm, with prices up o to c. with De
cember at 49H9!4c and May at 51
