Prices on BmN of Trad.
CHICAGO, Deo. 1L Big receipts In tha
northwest on both aides of the Inter
national line exerted pressure today on
the market for wheat. Largely as a re
suit the close waa S?o under Saturday
night. Corn ahowed a net loss of So to
H'tfo and oats mjjWo. At the end of tha
day hog; products war down from 6o to
From tha outset bears In the wheat
pit had the advantage, being aided by
the fact that taea serious oases than
expected were shown In today's crop
svdvloea from the Argentine. A more Im
mediate and potent influence, however,
developed la reports that Minneapolis and
luluth had arrivals totaling MM cars, aa
ea-aliurt Til a year ago. Moreover. Winni
peg seat word of 1.421 car there, aa
compared with Xei the corresponding day
last year. In this connection the United
Ktatea visible supply Increase, although
' smaller than had been looked for, made
a rather forcible contrast with a falling
off twelve months back. May fluctuated
between ty.fj c and KHc, with tha
final tone firm, but o down, at
There was good commission buying.
Which kept com strong when other grains
were weak. May ranged from A2Hhtt'SC
to (3d, closing firm. So net higher, at
fcc. Cash grades were steady. No. I
yellow was quoted at WriTle for carlota.
Hhorts did most of the buylmc In the
eats crowd. Top and bottom prices
touched for the May delivery turned out
to be 4Hc and 4eic, with the close Vo
tip at 4S'iiS,tKSc.
Some of the larger packers sold provi
sions through speculators and broker.

SHEEP Packers needed a good supply
tt sheep Itvmbs VO keep killing guia
t work, but were Inclined to delay pus
chafe until the last moment, aa most of
the other market center were pretty
well filled, lending more or lee promise)
to a lower scale of values. This attitude
failed to get them very mucb stock, and
with the rank and file of seller holdm
out for steady figures, early buyer wet
forced to settle on a firm basis.
Supplies amounted to fully 11,000 head
nd consisted largely ol corn fed and
warmed-up classes. Only a handful of
ranee stuff was Included In the run, and
about half of the offerings that cam
under western billing carried wheat stub
ble finish, suitable for slaughter.
Despite the alse and character of sup
ply, the market opened In quiet shape at
well sustained prices, choice cornfed
lambs bringing aa much as 16.01), An
extra good kind of fed westerns moved at
2.1.75, and some stubble feds found a pack
inn outlet at 2o. 65. There were pleMy of
heavy sheep on sale, but good handy
ewes or yearlings proved the exreptlOJi,
ewes being quotable up to 23.75 and yeaf
linKs of prime quality claiming a limit of
24.75. Toppy fat wethers landed at 23.80.
Feeder business had a scattered, uncer
tain appearance, but the situation as a
whole showed no changes worth mention
ing. The country demand has dwindled
lo extremely small volume, snd even
though feeder orders were plentiful, cur
rent receipts do not offer a very ' good
selection for finishers having shed or
barn protection. Warmed up western
ewes are going back for a final flnlBh at
and near 83.00. while strong weight feeder
lambs are in fair demand at 24.6U&4.66.-
