The favorable developments In the financial situation yesterday, which fur the time being were overshadowed by the break in the copper shares, found better retleetion in the trading this morning. For one thing the details of the city bonds sale, which were not known at the close of business, made a much better showing than when a full account of them was published this morning- Instead of the lather mortinree result indicated by the first bids made public yesterday the transaction turned out to be a really brilliant success. The quotations of 102, at which the new bonds "when issued" left oft yesterday on the curb market were raised quickly this forenoon to VC. Tlie stock felt the stimulus of this very satisfactory financing more than anything else. It took more notice of the decision In the-Pennsylvania, two cent rate case which had been Ignored In yesterday's more exciting happenings. j On tile other hand a further break in copper metal In London .this morning caused a renewal of liquodatioii in the copper shares and held the upward movement In check. (irain and Provisions. (By Leased Wire to The Times.) Chicago. Sept. 11. Wheat de clined to 1 V4 at the opening on ' selling by commission houses influ-I enced by the indifferent reception of the government report abroad, absence of frost in the northwest and clearer conditions, and prospects of ample elevator room here.

Corn was off 1-SGf 3-Sc: oats were 1-Sc. off to l-2r(i'5-Sc, higher, and provisions were '.unsettled." Local longs were heavy sellers at the out-Ret and prices were carried off sharply. It was shown beyond a doubt that the market was in no condition to take care of increased offerings. The weight of the long wheat was felt. Tuoro was a lack of new buying power for the moment. There is ext remely rough weather in the Canadian Northwest, with two inches of snow in some sections. The corn market was a big one. It was weak early rallying with wheat and on covering by shorts. The southwest was a big seller. T:ie oats market was a small and narrow one, not inviting the general speculative trade enjoyed for some time past.

Several warrants have been issued for women in the red light district charging them with sidling whiskey without, license, and they will be tried this afternoon before Police Justice Badger. As a rule, where whiskey is sold at such places the proprietors are sharp enought. to have United States license, for-tins' fear of Uncle Sam is far greater than of the state courts. There are very few blind tiger cases in Raleigh, but the police occasionally run up with one.: Even in the city of Wilmington, where i.iore tiro between sixty and seventy saloons blind tigers are raided occasionally. The women arrested are Bertha Brown, Maggie Pick, and Gladys Wfhster. Hubbard Bros.'s Cotton Letter. (Special to The Kvening Times.) New York, Sept. 11. After so sharp a break a steadier market was in order today and with minor fluctuations the market has shoA'n a steadier undertone due to a covering demand. It Is to take a fresh view of the situation at the decline ns the short interest has naturally increased on a weak market, while spinners have bought a small amount of hedges on this basis. A revision of the differences will be made this afternoon after the close, which also checks business as the recent demand for the low grades and the offerings of high grades puzlcs e rue ns to the decision of the committee.
