CHICAGO CHAIN AND PROVISIONS
Featnre of the Trading and rio.lng;
Price on Board of Trade.
CHICAGO, Dec. 4 The railroad strike In
the northwest ' had ceased to be a factor
In the wheat market today and tne eye
of the traders were again focused on Ar
gentina, where ather conditions were
said to be favorable for harvesting. Fa
vorable crop reports from the, Mouth Amer
ican country caumd a heavy tone In the
market all day and at the close pr.ce
were VtVSc below the final f Inures of the
pievloue session. Coarse grain and pro
visions also closed weak.
Although sensational rumors were cir
culated on the floor of the exchange be
fore the opening of trading predicting to
aene.ral strike on all railroads as the out
come of the situation In the northwest, the
reports were given no credence In favor
of the more optimistic tenor of t new
emanating from the scene of the labor
trouble. Traders, however, were inclined
to await further development before opening
up new deals, and as a result the volume
of business was small. The rapid spread
of harvest operations In Argentina Inspired
more or less selling throughout tne day,
which resulted In moderate weakness In
all deliveries. Cold weatner was the offi
cial forecast for the entire winter wheat
belt, but this failed to have any bullish
effect, owing to the newly-seeded crop be
ing covered with snow In many section.
The range on the May delivery' for the
.y was between 6l.OiVW8l.06H. Tre mar
ket closed only a trifle above to the low
eat point, with May at 61.057.
The corn market was weak and cloeefl
almost at the lowest point, with prices H
Ho to He below yesterday' closing.
Oat were moderately firm at the start,
hut developed an easier tone early In the
session and became weaker as trading
progressed. At the close prices were a
shade to Ho lower than yesterday' final
Provisions were weak. Price at the close
wero 7Hfi27Ho lower.

NKW YORK. Dec. 4 The recovery of

responsibility attributed to the demand
from uncovered shorts. The speculative
community protested the Ufual confidence
In Its fore-knowledge of the contents of
President Taft s message after It had ar
rived at the print stage. The outlines of
the coming message which were accepted
as authentic In brokers' offices had the
effect of soothing some of the apprehen
sions frlt eariler In the week as to the
manner in which topics hearing on corpora
tion interests would be handled.
Tho resumption of aggrexsive market
operations In 1,'nited States tsteel of a oon
certud character had a marked sentimental
effect on the whole market. Reading fur

CAT 1 LB Thers waa nothing of any .con
sequence doing In the cattle market mis
morning, there being almost nothing on
aaie, an usual on a Saturday. For the
week the receipts have been uuue iioerai,
footing up about the same as for last
week and a little more than a year ago.
The fact Is, considering country roads, tne
supply of cattle has been larger tnan any
one had reason to expect.
Strictly desirable cornfed steers havo
not been very plentiful any day this week,
while there has been a large showing of
very common to pretty decent kinds of
half-fat siuff. The demand all the week
for the good kinds ha been brisk and the
market on anything of that description Is
firm, as compared with last week's olose.
Common and inferior stuff has naturally
shown more or less dullness from day to
dav. althouKh everything has been sold.
Cows and heifers have been in large
supply all week, a very large proportion
of the recelnta conslstlnc of that kind ot
stock. Tho faot Is it would seem as if
more cow stuff, than usual at this season
of the year la com nu forward. The do
mand. fortunately, has been good and the
butter a-rades hava sold freely at gooo
steady Drlces. On the other hand, common
to medium grades have been slow seller
all the week and show more or less weak
ness at the close.
With country roads and feed lota In
about as bad condition as could well be
Imagined. It was hardly to bo expected
that there would b very muoh demand
tor stock cattle and feeders. On th eon
trary, the demand was very good all tne
week, suppllea being of desirable feeding
cattle meeting; with ready sal at gradually
strengthening prices. At th close of the
week good feeding steers of all weights
are fully llkalbc higher than on week ago.
while the medium and common grades ure
just about steady.

liOGSTh quality or the hogs received
today was so Q.lterent from yesterday that
It is a difficult matter to make an accurate
comparison as to prices between th two
days. This morning's receipts, that is the
eany arrivals, consisted largely of light
mixed hogs, running down to pigs, wl.h
very few good weighty loads and no strictly
good heavy hogs, such as sold at tne top
pile yesterday, with a fair demand, th
better hogs sold strong to a little higher
than yesterday, bringing t8066j8.07tt and on
up aa high as 38.10 for a pretty decen
kind. On the other hand light hog sold
from S..06 on down, quite a good many ot
th fair to decent klnda going at 37.961
7.97Vt. Salesmen as a rule were quoting th
light hogs as easier, but packers were al
quoting their purchase aa strong to So,
higher, taking the quality and weight into
consideration. While th market waa slow
in opening, th early arrivals changed
hands In good season.
Keoelpts of hog this week show a fall
ing off of a little over 2,000 head as com
pared with laat week, but a very heavy
decrease as compared with a year ago. It
has been a matter of surprise to th trad
that there has not been a still heavier de
crease, owing to th impassable condition
of country roads. Th market throughout
the week has been In fair condition aa
viewed from a seller's standpoint. Thus
It started out with a big 6c advance on
Monday, going still higher on Tuesday,
that day proving to be th highest day
since September. On Wednesday there was
a sharp reaction wruch wiped out th
sdvanc, but a littl stronger market dur
ing th latter hair or th week leaves
prices about wher they were at tfie close
of last week.

SHKKP Ther waa no fre.h offerings
today and the sheep barn waa practically
bar of supplies, a is usually th case on
The total count for th past five days
la about 1,000 head short of th count ot
last week, on day or which waa a tipltday.
Receipt, for this week, a year ago, num
bered 44,000 head.
Aside from the Improvement In live mut
ton values, ther have been no especially
r.w features to III trade lately. The move
ment at all time has been aotlv.. packers
buying freely from the opening and priors
have advanced iwu2ac unuer the Influence
of warm competition on th better clasaea.
Th character of the bulk of offerings ha
been about th same a last week, prac
tically everything showing more or lea
finish. Sixty-day stuff has been selling
very well a a rule, but buyers sre Inclined
t give preference to th scattered ship
ments of eighty and ntn.ty-day claase.
A w-aa noted yesterday, th supply of
fat lamb this week ha been limited. In
fact, ther have been -vary few strings of
really good native or fed westerns with
which to teat top. Anything at ail suitable
for killing purpose, however, has sold
readily at good strong prices as compared
wtth laat week's.

CANNOT ACCOUNT FOR IT
Uaffllns Mystery ot Aeoastle '
PLnys Santa Snrprlalnn;
Th partial failur of th acoustics of
the New theater In New York City, al
though expert talent was smployed to
proauc in best results, has started a
discussion of thst baffling mystery. Th
Indianapolis News contributes a Strang
confirmation of th statement as to th
rhanc or unknown factor In acoustics.
"At our .tat fair, grounds," relate th.
News, "was built a larv hiuMIn r.t mlnnm
hilr.W mwA , l u m li... k ,1
Ion. It ha seats In tiers all round and
In th long flat space a tan bark arena.
It is a handsome structure. Its us wss
asked for a popular assemblage and mov
able seats ware placed In th arena.
Altogether there la room for 11,000 people.
(Th surrounding seats, when" used as a
liv stock psvilion, accommodate 5.000 1
But when th building I filled to capacity,
a It wa at s.veral of th. conr.rt ol
tha Nstionsl Saengerfest and on th oc
casion of the Bryan notification meal
ing, It waa discovered that the myster
ious and eluslv quality of acoustic had '
been attained In th rarest perf'.-rtlonl ,-r
"Here is a great building of 12.000 seU
lug capacity built for th display of liv.
stock at a stat. fair, with no thought ot
acoustics, yet wh.n tried It turn out to
be as perfect acoustically as almost any
building ever built. It is a triumph in. i
deed, one of th greatest of its kind, fetul' I
It only adds to the mystery of acoustic.
L'ow it cam about, none know. But w
all rejolc In the bussed fact, for In
;iara has thus one of the largest halls ut
It kind, whlca la, what few other large
hall, have, perfect acoustic properties."
