The stock market to day was again extremely
dull but firm, the result of the operations being
to leave prices mostly fractions better than
those of yesterday. There was great indisposi
tion to trade, business being mainly confined to
room traders. Most stocks were from %©%
per cent, below yesterday s final figures at the
opening. New England and Lackawanna ex
hibited some strength and the former advanced
1 per cent., but the general list was intensely
dull, though a firm tone existed and small frac
tional gains were established among those st<x:ks
traded in. Toward 1 o'clock there was a notice
able drooping tendency, which was specially
marked in Kansas and Texas, but the marxet
rallied and closed firm near the best prices
reached. Smaller coal stocks were the features
in the last hour, being strong and compara
tively active. The business done amounted to
only 62,000 shares. Most of the list are higher,
but the only Important changes are gains of 1%
per cent, each In Hocking and Colorado Coal.

Green Co.’s reoort on cotton futures says:
The market for cotton certificates did not pre
■ent many striking features to-day. Really
new business proved extremely moderate, and
most 'if the trading was confined to an effort to
even up with the end of the week, and as longs
took a prominent part, the general tone was
easier under the excess of offering over the de
mand. Liverpool seemed inclined to follow the
final break made here last evening, and with
some indications of increasing political compli
cations abroad there was no aid from the foreign
side of the situation, and home influences were
unchanged. Still, at B®4 points de
cline, buy ing orders were struck to an extent
sufficient to stop further shrinkage, and at the
close the market was steady.”

Chicago. Dec. 17.—Pork was,the favorite arti
cle on the list for brokers at the opening of the
Board of Trade this morning. On a big bid by
a local operator May option opened at sl6. But
the general crowd was only bidding at sls 95.
In half an hour the price hid eased off to sls 85.
This last figure, however, was a fraction above
last night's close, the strength being due to
light receipts. Later, on heavy bear move
ments, options went down to sls 75, but soon
after rallied to sls 82%. The record of other
markets during the first hour was similar to
that of pork. May lard opened 7%c higher at
$8 27%. May wheat opened at 83%c and May
corn ats4-%c- Trading was not unusually large.
During the morning May wheat, which had sold
up to 84c, eased back to 83%0 on large selling.
>iiiy corn sold down to 54%c. There was little
doing in either of the grain pits, and before the
close May corn sold down to 54%c, and up again
to 54%@54%c on purely local deals. May wheat,
after touching NkLc, went up to 83%c, around
which figure it held steady at 12:30 o'clock. All
provisions were held firm during the day.
