CHICAGO, Dec. 14-The approach of
t'hilstmaa thinned the crowd today on
'change, and let prices ease off a little
all around. At the end of the session
wheat was down o to VW net. corn
tf ito to o. oats, k4o to So, and
ling products ViQibc to Mkj.
Wheat closed at almoat the bottom for
the day. It waa apparent the market
had no support, but shorts seemed timid
about putting on much pressure. What
decline occurred waa more due to neg
lect than because of any external Influ
ence. Crop news from Argentina, If allow
ing any material difference, turned In
favor of the bears. Then, too, northwest
receipts did not exhibit the falling oft
expected after the light run of the pre
vious day. liberal export sales reported
at Montreal gave scant help, a there was
no foreign demand for United Htates
grown wheat, and no adequate milling
call for the big stocks In Chicago. May
tanged from l7 to 87t, with the .finish
steady at iM(Wo, a decline of Ho com
pared with twenty-four hours before.
Home of the larger commission con
cerns were selling corn off and on. Pit
traders, though appeared to favor the
buying side. May fluctuated between
end 6;ne, closing easy, tatHao down
at KISaV. Cash demand was slim.
-No. 2 yellow waa quoted at "0,3 71 o for
front taking on the part of shorts af
forded the only prop under the oats mar
ket. Top and twit torn levels reached for
-May were 4WtHiWfl and 4SU'Hvc. wlth
the clone So net lower at iS'vtcWSc.
Provisions weakened In view of a drop
in prices at the yards. When the pit
was cleared pork had become less ex-Ix-nslve
by 7Ho to lor and other prod
vuen decreased In cost ZWv'm to 64 7 He.

Htfel was acaln the center of the stage
today, fcarly trading In this stock was
fpectacular. Kxclted operators ran up
(he price to 68. the highest figure since
est Heptember. and a caln from vesterdav
of IS. Within the first fifteen minutes
iraneHCtlons amounted to 1.S.000 share.
Hy the end of the first hour the total
had been swollen to 22.( shares.
After that the price eased off until the
gain had been virtually eliminated. The
day's business was the largest of several
weeks, with a total of a:f7. enure of
United Htates Bteel and 838.000 shares of
other stocks.
The general market responeded unwill
ingly to the rise In United states Kteel.
When United 8tates Hteel fell back the
whole market declined, some stocks fall
ing under yesterday's close. During the
afternoon the coalers and coppers were
moved up moderately, but the list, as
a whole, made little response. The fever
ish' bidding for United Bute Meet waa
ascribed largely to short covering.
The tendency of prices of steel products
continued upward. ,
The cupper stocks made further gain"
In response to another advance In the
price of the total, which In now at the
highest level for a long period. American
Agricultural Chemical's recent advance
had partly discounted the beginning of

ported In. The receipts for the four days
this week amount to 26,379 head, being
the largest of any elmllar period since
four weeks ago and larger than a year
ago by almost 6,00 head. Such a liberal
run would naturally give the market a
weaker tendency, but unfortunately there
has been an additional bear feature con
sisting of glutted markets at eastern
points. Chicago has slumped very badly
this week and waa reported slow and
lower again this morning.
Under the Influence of the liberal re
ceipts and unfavorable advices from other
points noted above the market on beet
steers this morning opened very slow and
dull. Possibly something right good
might command steady prices, but the
general market on the kind of cattle
coming was weak to 10c lower than yes
terday, or around 50c lower than last
'1 hui sday, wnicli was thehigh day laat
What has been said regarding beef
steers would apply equally well to the
narket on cows and heifers. 1 hey were
also slow and dull and generally a little
lower analn than yesterday, or around
50c lower than the high day last week.
This means that all the advance made on
killing cattle last week has been wiped
out and more, too.
etrlctiy good feeders were very scarce
and they have shown very little change
all the week, but the tendenoy has been
gradually downward on the medium and
common kinds of feeders and on light
stock cattle. The feeling today on such
grades waa weak to lower.

fiHEEP Most of the regular buyers of
fat sheep and lambs were out In the al
leys early and a good market existed for
anything fed out long Enough to dress
properly. In all Important respects the
trade ruled steady, but there were various
sales of medium stuff that looked a little
stronger when due allowance was made
for quality. High grade stock generally
drew the better demand and usually sold
witnin the same spreads noted recently
Well conditioned western lambs from
Nebraska and Iowa feedlots moved
around 85.osi'5.70. the latter price being a
near limit. It would take something
strictly choice In the way of tidy lambs
to pass the 85.75 mark at present, de
spuo the fact that lo.NMCUio tops were
scorea earner in the week, compared with
last week s cloBe most kinds of lambs are
closing about steady, the main feature
ol trade lately being a more severe dis
crimination between good to choice and
common to medium mutton classes.
Matured muttons showed very fair ac
tion and firm prices were paid all along
the line for anything with dressing prom
ise. Good ewes landed at and near (3.40
and some teppy yearling ewes went to
the slaughter pens at (4.16. There were
only a few strings of wethers on sale.

Indicate a trade Just about steady with
that at last week s close.
There was nothing much doing In feed'

demand were both small. Only (.000 head
of feeder sheep and lambs, according to
packers' tab, have been taken back Into
the country thus rar tnis week.
