based upon the domestic conditions, and i
th present stocks decrease further ad
vances are predicted.
Receipts of corn are more liberal, with
the more favorable weather and the ad
vance In prices haa checked the export
saies, and the local demand Is epasdomlc
snd values decline quickly when buylna
Whefit- cables responded well to our ad
vance yesterday, causing a strong opening
today. Later wheat came out freely on thu
bulge and selling was heavy hv commis
sion houses and local lonus. May wheat
opened at I1.02H and olosed at Sl.olH.
The corn market suffered a setback,
owing to the heavier receipts as a result of

Feat ares of the Trading; and Closing
Price on Board of Trade.
CHICAOO, Feb. 2. An increase of nearly
6,000.(00 bu. for the week In the world's
visible supply of wheat created bearish sen
timent In the wheat market here today
and caused a net loss at the close of V'f
Sc. Corn, oat and provisions also closed
There was a reversal of local trade con
dltlona In the wheat pit today, from the
market of the pievlouB . clay. IsenTlment
In the pit being bearish throughout the en
tire day. The course of the market was
largely ahaped by the leading . bulla, who
sold quite freely from start to finish. The
fact that the short Interest waa eliminated
to a great extent by yesterday's bulge,
helped to weaken the market. A noticea
ble feature of today's pioceedings was
the shifting over from the May delivery
to the July option, owing to the congested
condition at the former delivery. The chief
weakening factor was Hradstreeta' state
ment of the world's visible supply, which
howed an Increase of 4.800.000 bu. for the
week. There was a mild show or firm
ness at the opening, due to the strength
of the fu.-eign wheat markets, but .this -was
oon sidestepped'. '-The- market closed Weak
and onlv a trifle above the lowest point
of the day, with May at ll.wiv, and July
at 7',a98c. Clearances of wheat and flour
wer euual to 143.0O0 bu.
The corn market developed considerable
weakness. In expectation of considerable
receipt on corn from the Interior. The
market closed down ss4T'Hc. compared with
the previous clove. Final quotations on
May were at KlVifOS'ic, arid on July, 63'c.
Oata exhibited a weak tone during the
entire session. The market closed weak,
with prices down i&c to VjC, with May
at 61c and July at 4ic.
Provision were weak on general liquida
tion, local packers being among the chief
seller. The market was bearishly af
fected by unexpectedly large stocks of pro
vision at outside packing centers. At the
close prices were 7V&15c lower.
Th leading future ranged a follow:

the effect that supplies were unuually
heavy and prices sharply lower. Thl
naturally- had a vary depressing influence
upon the local trade and elealer wer very
slow arbont getting down to business.
DreaaecT beef men took their time anout
getting out into the yard and bids were
generally in tne naignoornooa 01 luttriao
lower than early Monday morning. The
trade was naturally slow and price very
uneven, but the feeling was aecmeniy
weak and the Indications were that busi
ness would done on a decidedly lower
basis if anything like a clearance was
made. Up until a late hour In the. after
noon comparatively few c&ttle had changed
The market ' for cowa and neirers wss
slso very dull, and unevenly lower. Most of
the demand came from local packers, as
there wa very little inquiry tor snipping
account. Bid and sales wer generally all
of 10c lower than yesterday, while common
and canning grades could hardly be moved
at all, even at the prevailing low figures.
In stockers and feeders the volume of
busines waa comparatively small. Prices
were anywhere from steady en th mora de
sirable grade to fully 10c lower on tne
medium stuff. The movement was slow
from start ta finish.
