CHICAOO. Dec. M. Assertions that the
alleged damage to the Argentina crop
had ben made, too much of put the wheat
market today on the clown grade. Clos
ing prices liowed a decline of M,o to
',u net. Corn Untitled at H'bu to He
advance: oatn, unchanged to a sixteenth
up, and hog product varying from 60 off
to a Ilka amount Increase In coat.
Selling ot wheat waa largely dona by
local professional speculator. Their cue
was taken from the fact that Argentina
weather reports appeared greatly Inv
proved, but a mora powerful influence
waa an expert opinion that the effect of
rain would not ba as aerlou as prevtou
statement Indicated, and that the key
to the situation wa south Argentina,
where the outlook at present waa mot
promising. Fairly liberal receipts north
went of Chicago, and fin rain and snow
lell over the entire hard winter wheat
country west and southwest added to
the force of bear sentiment. Toward the
end of the day, however, buying on the
part of cautious shorts led to the re
covery of nni of the lost ground.
n During the session May ranged from
SSo to 9iic, closing firm but Vu"ac

An official prediction of unsettled
weather forced the core market to a
Mttber level. It was noticed that even
without such a further handicap the
cuuntry movement waa light and that
roads were bad generally throughout the
belt. May fluctuated between 114 and
t.V closing steady Wiio net higher at
tHitVo. ( ash grades were In anly fair
demand. No. S yellow was not quoted.
Notwithstanding that the oats market
wa alow and heavy most of the day,
valuea In the end responded a little to
the strength of -urn. The hardening waa
due partly to a desire by shorts to se
cure profits. High and low limits reached
for Hay were y,c and 4hWo, with the
close se, exactly the) ait me as lant night.
Mont of ths day's tnid In provisions
consisted of changing January holding
to May, warehousemen taking the carry

market atood virtually unaltered, within

NF.W YORK, Deo. 20.-The insistent de
mand of Herman hank for "over-year"
fund wa the significant fenture on
what otherwise was a dull day In Wall
street. Large amount already have
been loaned to Germany, Seven per cent
was paid for the greater part of this
money, and offers at "4 to a, per cent

not less than 1 120, ft 10,0110.
Cable advices were that an acute strin
gency prevailed In the Oerman money
market, an wa Implied by the urgency
of the demand for funds. The present
Ituntlon wan nald by International bank
ers to be the result of over speculation
In Germany, over expansion of credits
snd the withdrawal of fund by France
In the fall, at the lime of the Moroccan
care. Unusual Interest attache to this
situation because of the fact that a large
f'art of the loan contracted here by Her
In Interests In the course of the Moroc
can dispute, mature at the end of the
next month. Unless these loan are ex
tended, Germany's financial reaources
will be put to a severe tax.

CAT l Cattle receipts . were ex
tremely light today, oniy eighty-eight
cars being reported. For th tnree davs
this week the total foots up 8,892 head, a
against 22,179 head for the same days last
week and 12,1142 head for th same period
year ago. Ths light receipts were suf
ficient In the face of a very fair demand
to advance prices, but another bull argu
ment that had no little Influence on the
market was the feeling that receipts the
remainder of the week would be very
light. As next Monday, Christmas day.
will be a hoi day. the yards not beuig
open for the sale of stock, packers were
naturally anxious to pick up . as many
killers a possible, so as to have some
thing to carry over until next TusadAy.'
Lveryone was out In the yards early
In th morning and It did. not take
buyars very long to clean up everything
in the way ot dsoent beef steers tn sight.
I-As a result practically everything In the
yards in tne way or killers was sold and
weighed at an early hour, the prices
paid were fully 10c higher than Vester-
uay, and In some cases more. This means
that the market today was safely 20c
higher than last week s close, and in
some cases more than that.
Cows and heifers showed about th
same advance as beef steers, and they,
'.00. ar xoo or more higher than - last
The demand for feeders has been rather
slim this week, with the result that pi lea
have eased otr. it win be remembered,
however, that last week they did not
break as much as did kiliers, hence the
are still high in comparison to tn way
tat cattle are selling.
