Argentina Wheat Harvest Will Soon
Be Under Way.
TO HAVE DUE EFFECT ON PRICES
JSxpnrtahle supply from Southern

In Thla Country
OMAHA, Nov. 17, 1913.
The harvesting of wheat will be under
way in the north of Argentine Irt a" short
time, as the crop la ripening rapidly. Tha
cutunit of linseed has been under way
the last ten daya or fortnight. Desirable,
weather Is particularly necessary In the
districts where the wheat la about ready
to harvest, but ralna were repotted there
on Saturday. In the southern part t
-Argentina the .weather Is still dry; It Is
eald that deterioration continues' and:
that the likelihood Is that the exportable
surplus will be further reduced In conse
quence. It may bo sold without fear of
contradiction that . the most- careful
thinkers In the wheat trade at Chicago
and other markets of America, as woll
as abroad, have been slow to even con
sider as a fact some of the cables that
have been received from the southern
hemisphere because of the4r coloring. At
least one set of cables continues to come
forward telling of the loss . of . large
amounts of wheat In one- province or
another, while this st of cables Is con
tradicted by the advices from houses In
that country that are considered reliable,
cash wheat was unchanged.
Stocks of contract corn are being re
duced right along and they are small
yhen compared with a- month ago. The
fact that they are owned by one or two
concerns makes the position of the grain
stronger than It otherwise would be. Tho
larmer la not selling any corn to speak
?' in!t tn toljc cornea from the country
that the price will have to bo advanced
before the movement off the farms Is of
even moderate, proportions, when tho
crop of last year, as woll as this. Is taken
into consideration. There Is only a mod
erate open interest In the deferred
months save that of hedging character.
SfJ1 corn was unchanged to Sc lower.
The situation In oats Is not as weak as
II wa a fortnight ago. It is expected,
tnat a large amount of Canadian orrts
will come Into the I'nlted States before
the-close of navigation. Cash oata were
unchanged to lie higher.
Clearances of- -wheat and flour were
equal to 753,000 bu.. and no corn or" oats.

Prompt chock to a strong bull tendency
In wheat came on reports from Argen
tine that rains in the northern port of
that country were ceasing. Fears that
the near at hand harvest would be greatly
handicapped were allayed and in addition
to the easing thus given prices were
lowered because of liberal selling by in
fluentlan houses which put long lines of
wheat i on. the market at the attractive
The opening strength was caused not
only by the fears of rain where more

south where drouth was causing as much

NEW YORK, Nov. 17. -Speculation was
listless all. day long and except In Isolated
Instances price chlngrs were Insignificant.
In the first hour there was a sharp de
cline, which carried down the leaders a
point or so. A recovery came quickly.
In the afternoon speculation was lifeless.
Wall street Is watting for news. The
Imagined evils of the future have been
discounted as accurately as may be now.
Speculators ore watching for signs that
will show them whether their Judgment
has been correct. Investors are doing
next to nothing.
There was plenty of news today regard
ing Mexico, the trad situation, events at
Washington, and other things In which
the street la interested, but tt was not
hows of first Importance. There was
nothing which Indicated decisive develop
ments. With no occurrences at homo to affect
the market at the opening, the tone was
determined by thu London market, where
Americans were heavy, Tentative ef
forts of the bears to extend the decline
availed nothlnr. Operations on the lone
side met with no more success.
The coppers failed to benefit bv the
strong showing made In the fortnlglHly
report of European supplies, showing n
decrease of more than 3,000,000 pounds.
intermittent Duying in Europe has corn
paratlvely little effect, on account of
stagnant conditions in the domestic mar.
Assets realization fell twenty points to
forty. It sold at 18) earlier In the vear.
Officials of the company sold they knew
of no reason for the slump.

largest decline was noted, A number of

general market values look to be around

Movement, which was rather slow all
the way through, became very draggy
towards the close, but tha market showed
little or no change, and the last sale ap
peared to be about steady with the early
decline. A heavy supply of pigs served
to weaken values considerably, the decline
amounting to anywhere from a shade to

The proportion of killers and feeders was
very much like It was on most days .of
last week. ,
The packers did not try to buy anything
during the first half of the forenoon,
their bearish talk still being that the
schedule of prices on the local market,
continued too high compared with other
points. About 10 o'clock a few of the fat
offerings began to change hands on n
bnsls of 15026a lower on both sheep and
lambs and buyers apparently did not
wnnt to fill orders very badly at tho re
duction. The trade, however, dragged
along until everything was cleaned up at
the decline and the clearance took place
at a reasonable hour. A large percentage
ot tho lambs were of the cornfed kind
and sold mostly nt R range of J.65r7.10.
the latter figure being about as high as
any lambs sold during the day. There
was another light supply of mutton of
ferings, consisting for the most part of
ewes, and to all Intents and purposes the
trade followed pretty much the same
course its In the case of lambs.
It was another good healthv market on
most all grades of feeders, with fair to
good feeder lambs and ewes In the best
request A good majority of the lambs
sold readily at K.2M!.50. with tha moat
desirable ewes going around 3.60Cf3.7S.
iweryining at an decent ns reeders was
Picked UP In aroody season. Indicating a
gooit country buying demand.

Arises Over Land
Drawn by a Woman
According to advices received at the
land department a peculiar question has
arisen lit connection with Uncle' Ham'
land lottery conducted nt ' North Platte.
It seems that at North Platte anion
the thousands registering and among
the few hundred who were lucky In the
drawing was a woman who registered- aa
a soldier's widow. When the drawing
occurred her name was not among the
first few, but It was within tha limit.
ao that she Is entitled to one ot the
tracts of land. Since the drawing A' pro
tost has been filed against this woman,
the charge being made that she la Inel
igible. According to the story at one
time she was the widow of a soldier, but
subsequently she married, the second
husband having never been in the service
of the government as s. soldier. Lter
on the second husband died and at the
tlmo of registering (he woman took the
position that once having been the widow
of a soldier, she still remains kuch, the
second marriage not having taken from
her tha right to enjoy the privileges of
it Is sold that this la the first cose of
tha kind that has over coma before the
offllcals of tha land offleea In NVhmala
and 'that they are all at sea over what
they are going to do In the premises. It
Is said tho case has been referred to the
secretary of the Interior for an opinion.
