CHICAGO. Oct. 13.-A report that Japan

In the market lor thai cereal today, and
With the added Impetus afforded by a
harp cash demand, Uecember closed with
a net cam of lc. Corn, on the other hand,
yielded to doroestlo condition and dropped
U'uSc. December oata cloned V4o down and
provisions for January delivery unchanged
lo 12"4o higher.
The demand for December wheat waa
quite sharp, but the offering were limited
and ea a reault the price of the delivery
allowed a food fain. Shorta were active
buyer throughout the entire amnion and
the demand trom thla aource waa respon
sible for much of the advance. Opening
r rices were steady on a private despatch
rom Liverpool stating that Japan was
buying wheat In India. December being
Ho lower to o higher at 7'3;95ic, but
with the market In the nortnwest snowing
a good advance early In the day, prices
followed suit and continued strong the re
malnder of the session, although there
were some alight recesslona on realizing.
December aold up to 8oo and closed at
fco, a gain of lo for the day. Clearances
of wheat and flour equaled 612.000 bushels.
Primary receipt were 1,011, 600 bushels,
against 1,210,000 bunheia a year ago. Hrad
street'a exDorta of wheat and flour for the
week were 2.866,000buahela, against 6 241.000
bushels a year ago. Minneapolis and Duluth
reported receipts of 683 cars, which with
local reeelota of 104 cars, none of contract
grade, made total receipt for the three
points or but cars, against iui cars last
week and 874 cars a year aeo.
f'nnt immfl riiillneaa In IrnriA rllacnitrfl led
corn holders and there was heavy liquids
tlon of long lines, with commission houses
also on the selling side. Cables were lower
and had a weakening Influence at the start.
The throwing over of a line of 2.000.000
bushels by an outside holder was a fea
ture of the trading. After selling between
44'Vff46c, December closed WQbo lower
at 4474c. Local receipts were 823 car, with
42 of contract grade.
A feature of the trading In oata waa the
eng out through brokers of ft big long
line of May for a prominent operator and
thia selling was responsible for the weak
tone which developed early In the day.
Freer country offerings and a falling off
In cash demand were assigned as reasons
for the change of front of several Influ
ential local traders. Towards the close the
market waa helped by the etrenght In
wheat and December closed only i,o lower
at StHc, after ranging between 8t453G.
Local receipt a were 271 cars.
Lower prices at the yards and Increased
Stocks caused an easy tone In provisions
at the opening, and with only a small de
mand the market showed little Inclination
to advance. Packers were more disposed
to support the market 'than of lute. A
steadier tone prevailed late In the day and

CATTLE Recelnts of cattle this morn
lng were not excessive, but as Is apt to be
the case on a Friday, the demand was not
very brisk, and while there was little or
no change In ru'.lng prices the market was
slow and no more than steady.
Cornfed steers, sold In lust about the
same notches thla morning that they did
veaterdav. Packers aeemed to want a few
and aa tnere were oniy a tew ouncnes in
eight the market held steady. Comfeds of
desirable quality are fully steady for the
week and even the commoner kinds have
shown very little change, although trading
s been dun on mat ciasa, witn prices
There was no treat life to the cow trade
thla morning, as buyers seemed to be
pretty well filled up and apparently did not
care whether they, got many or not. The
market for the week, though, haa been
very satisfactory, as the demand nas teen
little In excess or the supply snd prices
have advanced all along ths line, fully
1027160, with some sales showing even more
or an advance man mat.
. There la little chance to note In bulls,
veal calves and stag, as prices have held
lust about ateady all the week.
There were only a few stockers and feed
ers In sight, so that In rplte of the fact
that the end of the week Is at hand, prices
on anything decent held about steady.
Common stuff was extremely dull the same
as usual. For the week the best grades of
heavy cattle or choice ngntweignrs are
verv little If anv lower, but the plain and
common cattle are dull and fully 104J15O
lower, with some sales even worse.
The few western grass beef steers that
arrived this morning aold without material
change In the market, or at fully steady
prices, as compared with the close of last
week. Range cows wre a little slow, but
all of 10(gl6o higher than last week, while
stockers and feeders looked .fully lOtftlao
lower than last week n closing prices un
less the cattle were or very gooa quality,

HOGS The upward tendency of hog
valuea waa auddenly checked thia morning
and In fact the bulk of the advance of the
last few daya waa loat. At the opening of
the market a few of the beet lightweights
aold ateady to a little lower, aa high aa
$5.60 being paid, or the aama as yesterday's
top. Aside from those few loada, however,
the market waa very alow and lu'JOo lower
than yesterday morning, or fully a dime
lower than yesterday a bad cloae. Packers
were bidding 16 .x6 30 for heavies, Jo. SO J
686 for mediums, hlle the lights sold
from that up to 35.60. Salesmen were
hardly prepared to take off aa much aa
30o on ths heavy hoga and aa a result
trading waa vary alow and tt was late be
fore a clearance was made.
The cloae of the market was very slow
and weak at the decline, the last sales
being fully 20c lower than yesterday morn
ing. At noon there were still some tralna
back, so ths market did not come to a
close until a late hour. Representative

SHEEP There wss a liberal run of sheep
reported today, but thev were very slow In
arriving, and In fnct It was noon before

that descrlntlon met with ready Bale at
fully ateady prices. The bulk of the offer

BOSTON. Oct. 16 WOOL The Commer
cial Bulletin will aay tomorrow: The gen
eral market has Wen quiet thla week, but
the demand Is stl'l fairly active and some
housea have closed a good business In terri
tory wools, bom ampie aim i-..jiiim.,
Transactions In fleeces are curtailed
cause of the small supplies, most dealers
having contracts to fill. The market is very
firm. Dealers can find no incentive to
break pricea. In fact, It la asserted that a
6 per cent reduction In pricea would cauae
speculation and that operalore are ready
to take advantage of any eueh outcome.
Thla refers more particularly to the finer
gradea. Medium gradea are In su h a atrong
position that prices are "boat certain to
advance with any increaae In activity. The
ahlpments of wool frorn Boston Jo data
from December 21. H2, are 18t..fSl 8
