' - OMAHA, March 29. 1913.
1 here was a bull market In wheat
dUritltr the nmi-nhif. Vu.lnnlav vvllli ii
decidedly good upturn of i cents for
tim, mic monius Htid n cents .for amy
from the close Thursday. The Liverpool
market did not show tho weakness ex.
pected following the late break In all
markets on this side of the ocean Thurs
day. This was very surprising because
Aigcntlne shipments were given very
Inrge at 6.104.000 bushels and the total
supplies from south of tho equator at
nearly double Uiobo of a year ago. Min
neapolis stocks increased TS.Ono bushels
for the week ending today. Dulutli In
creased 400.000 bushels. There was no
cash business reported In Chicago and the
only export trade mentioned In reports
were lO.UW bushels at Winnipeg. There
was some bullish news with an "If In
It nt times during the session.
One feature was tho claim that the
llJOds lnlshl rulu;j tl-.e win- avfri-ufe
on lowlands it th plant had bemm to
grow. Another was that tlu tw i ur
three cold spells over Tcxbh nnd Okla
homa the last few days may have done
some Injury to tin pl.int. Strength wab
shown at Minneapolis when the May
price went to $6c. This encouraged sonw
buying In Chicago and Omaha. The mar
ket uppoarH to be without any decided
tendency nt tho present, a llttla over
selling one day followed by a good rally
the next. Cash wheat was unchanged.
There Is a tired feeling In the specula
tive trade In corn futures. Two or three
times yesterday tho May price was ad
vanced close to 63Vo nnd July at one time
closo to 6454C. Tho trade was extremely
dull at the time and tho market was
helped by the bull turn, In wheat. Tho
cash trade all over the country Is par
alyzed by the floods, which prevent busi
ness with tho east. Sentiment In tho
Chicago trade Is bearish, but there Is a
hesitation nbout pressing the selling side
of the market because on each break of
any Importance bull leadership Is felt
and sellers aro obliged to cover w'th
losses. Cash corn was unchanged to Ho
Oats advanced about He yesterday.
Argentina shipments of oats for tho week
aro a llttlo over 2,000,000 bushels. Ship
ping sales In Chicago were limited to
40,000 bushels. Cash onts were unchanged
to Ho lower.

bolt offset today higher cables and fears
that diimnge to thr crop In tho Ohio nnd
Indiana flood district would bo great.
Tho effect was to make the range of
prices narrow. The market closed steady.
Ho lower to He higher. Corn finished
with a net gain of I-I60 to He, onts with
11 similar net advance and provisions a
shade lower to 74c higher.
Reports that flood damage to growing
wheat In Ohio. Indiana. Illinois and Kc n-
tucky would he at least 15 pT cent caused
a good demand nt the beginning of the
ilnv nml t ie market oneneil strong una
neilve. but under ready selling soon
eased off. Advices that crop conditions
In Kaunas were never better also helped
to check tho bullish tendency 11s did ad
vices that a lending northwestern road
had refused further shipments of wheat
for Duluth for the prefiMit ns all available
storage-room thero has been taken up.
Later reports from the flood country
aided In keeping the price advance In
Check, It being held by some Investiga
tors the damuge to wheat whs confined
to narrow strips and was more than
counterbalanced by the benefit from
moisture on the uplands
Prlnmrv receipts of wheat wcie 649,000
bushels against 352.000 bushels last year.
Statistics on seaboard clearances of wheat
and flour were not completed.
Business In corn today was confined
largely to local dealers. Though the tone
was dull, light shipments kept prices
firm. Buying of oats b elevator Inter
ests was tho feature of trading In that
ceieal. , ,
After a firmer feeling In provisions,
owing to 11 light hog run. prices eased off
on n lltle liquidation .

CATTLE There were no cattle of any
consequence In the yardH this morning
and the total for tho week roots up only
16,351 head, being slightly smaller than
last week and tho smallest of uny week
for several months hnck, as well as
smaller than a year ago. At tho samt
tlmo receipts havo been plenty largo
enough to supply the demand. The hlgl.
water In thu east cutting off rallroau
communication has made It very diffi
cult for packers to forward meat pro
ducts and still ihore difficult for east
ern packing houses to ship live cattle.
As a result of this tho msrkt on
all kinds or cattle has experienced n
sharp decline during the week, notwith
standing tho light receipts.
At tho close of the week heavy beef
steers are right around 25c lower, with
the lighter weights around lotfSOo lower
Cows and heifers, and In fact all kinds
of butcher stook shows about the same
decline, being generally 15If46j lower than
a week ago.
Stock cattlo nnd food,qrs havn not es
caped, hut havo suffered In about tht
same proportion as klllertf.
Fir.od conditions in the cast aro sun
very bad and It would bo a wlro policy
for cattlemout to ship Very lightly until
tho eastern railroads Are In condition to

shipping by this market, ns all markets
of the country' are, ns a matter ol

HOOH Receipts wero rather liberal this
morning, but advices from other markets
weru of an encouraging naturn and me
feeling at the local yardu wan better
from tho outset. Shippers and speculators
apparently had good sited orders and
they started ont buying light und butcher
weight hogs at prices that were any
where from strong to Ec higher. Puck.
ers seemed equully eager for anything
on the light order, but mixed and heavy
hogs wero In very poor demand and prlcos
for this class of stuff wero at no tliuu
better than steady, Towards the close
prices on all grades weakened und
dropped hack Into about the tamo notches
as yesterday, with the heavy offering
possibly a little lower than at yesterday's
beat time. From start to finish buycia
discriminated against the heavies und
only bought these grades under protest.
Bulk of the hogs sold at $8.8008.90, with
good lights up as high as $3.96. Tho
movement early was fairly active, but It
easeduoff on the close and It was well
along -towards noon before the last hogs
were disposed of.
The market has heen rather uneven ah
week and not much change has been
noted In either direction. Heavies havo
Just about held their own all week, whlln
light are from Do to. In tho case of
toppy stuff, as much as a dime higher
than at the close of last week. On thn
whole, values aru a hcunt nickel higher
than last Saturday. Since thn storms of
tho first of the week the demand has
been slacked off. Owing to the fact that
r.onu of the eastern roads are maintain
ing a service up to the average und
some of them are almost entirely out ol
commission, packers are not Hiking on
any surplus supply, and the demand for
live stock has suffered accordingly
Today'a supply amounted to about Hi
cars, or 8.000 head, carrying the week'
totul up to 69,618. This Is over 13.000 largoi
than lust week, 4.000 heavier than lwe
weeks ngo and almost 6.W0 more than
wero received during the corresponding
week last year.
