CHICAGO, Nov. 3,-Weak owners sacri
ficed wheat today wholesale. On the re
sulting pnre tuiuole one Uealer was torced
to gUMnd and another had to trunater
all trades to nouavs possessing more capi
tal. Fear of the eltects of the federal
probe caused the break In the market.
The close was ntivous, o to 1SH'1Wo
under last night. Corn showed a net gain
of Vo to ',o and oats an advance of V'e
c to S''. In hog products the latest
trades yurled from a shade decline to a
gain of baiy.
It was a demoralized wheat pit for a
short time after the opening and there
wss a feeling of uneasiness all day. Le
Plie the fitct that the low point reached
today was a sc a bushel descent from cur
rent figures two Weeks ago and that the
cunseuuent losses were counted In mil.
lions, no important concerns were embar
rassed, the two establishments which felt
the Pini h being small.
A remarkable story that the plana for
m leoerai investigation had leaked pre
maturely nau a guoa ueal to do with help
ing wheat prices to recover in part. It
Was said that the government officiate
who had ordered the Inquiry had really no
rviueuce ai present aim that the dis
closure of their Intentions Would prove a
erious hand . tip. t,n this basis buyers
worked on the supposition II1H.1 the In
VeBtJisatlon Would lag. lietwernhe open
ing and close Itecvinber fluctunted from
.''(iy.iS,c to Wo. with last sales at DiWit
w 1 , a net oocuus 01 iViC.
Corn su.'iered severely from heavy Until
oat Ion eany, but more thun recovered
later. Liecember ranged fruin glo to Klkc.
clox'ng steady at tie, a gain of V.o over
last nlMht. Cash grades were In modest
demand. No, 2 yellow was quotod at !i'k
Stop loss orders In plenty raj-rled down
oats, but speculators took hold and forced
a rally, limn and low levels touched by
the December option proved to be 6o
and 46o, with the clous up at 4.c.

were willing to accept shuded to lower
bids, and the market aulckly shaned ur.

ply changed hands at figures almost Iden
tical wan tnose ot yesterday, but move
ment wa lacking in activity, and tt re
quired two or three hour to make a
complete clearance. Toward the extreme
close the demand became better, but no
visible Improvement In prices resulted.
Total receipts were estimated at about
sixty loads, mostly butcher and packing
stuff. Weighty offerings drew the high
figures, but preference for lard varieties
was Indicated only by small premiums.
Speculative demand throughout tha ses
sion wa fairly active, but limited, while
there were very tew purchase made on
actual outside order.
Bulk of business ranged from $6.06 to
$6.15, the same as yesterday. Long strings

BUADSTREKT'S TRADE REVIEW
Retail Trade Stimulated Thronghont
NEW TORK, Nov. 3. Bradstreet's to.

Retail trade, which now occupies the
center of the stage as regards distribu
tion, has been greatly stimulated by
colder weather over a wider area of coun

than they have since last spring.

in such lines as dry goods, rubbers, boots
and shoes, furs, clothing and furnish
ings, and the long-deferred breaking up
of stocks now seems to be under way.
Jobbing lines report a fairly good vol
ume of orders, though it is still too early
to expect much benefit from recent cold
weather. Road sales sent to wholesale,
holusen show a little Improvement and it
Is significant that woolen goods for spring
shipment and advances aro noted In sev
But in a general sense wholesale trade
outside of holiday lines Is relatively
light. At the same time there are ei.ougli
cross currents to prevent uniiorniuy.
Thus country merchants continue to buy
In a very conservative way. Industry re
mains rather quiet and the low price of
cotton Is i.uvlng a depressing effect on
trade and collections In the soutn. oi
course the low prlco of the crop means
cheap supplies for the textile mill In

DOLLARS FOR LOSS OF FOOT
ABERDEEN, S. D., Nov. 3. (Special.)
The Jury in the case of Hans Larson,
who sued the Milwaukee railroad for $21,
000 damages for the loss of a foot, sus
tained while trying to catch a train at
Mobrldge, which ha alleged pulled out
three minute after stopping, when the
conductor had told him tt would remain
thero fifteen minutes, brought In a ver
dict for $2,300.
Oa motion of tb defense a stay of
sixty days was granted to allow time for
perfecting an appeal. Larson Is tha
man who was a passenger on a Milwau
kee train and when the train reached
Mobrldge, feeling thirsty, he got off to
get a glass of beer after the conductor
had told him the train would stay thero
fifteen minutes. 'When the train whistled
to leav the station Larson hurried to
catch it. but It was already moving, and
he fell beneath the wheels, losing a foot.
Larson contends the train started Inside
of two or three minutes instead of fifteen
An intei eating f.ature of the ease was
the fact that of the twelve Jurors eleven
came to South Dakota from Wisconsin.
The twelfth man was from Canada. It
was not apparent, however, that th
native state of the jurors had anything
to do with the decision they reached.
Several of them favored giving Larson a
larger amount and one placed It as low
as $1,000. -
