OMAHA, Dec. 7, Ml
During most of yesterday's session the
bears were In control of the various miir
kits and It looked us If their hold could
not bo broken during the day. There
Were early losses of c to lo In wheal.
He to c In corn and c to 'Hi In onta.
Nearly tho entire speculative world was
astrido of the market and tho matters
of price seemed to he a ' secondary con
dition. It wan expected that the visible
supply would show a fair nixed In
crease, but. Instead, there "was a de
crease. To eraphaJilzn matters, tho Cana
dian vtslblit decreased nearly 3,00.000
bushels. While the. figures showing the
losses of the two countries came late In
the day, there was enough time left be
fore the close for- carl" louses -to have
been fully regained, and closing prices
Bhorved net adances o! Ho to Ho.
The feature oX the day's trade In wheat
was the heavy buying of December nnd
selling of May by two of thf. larger ele
vator concerns, one of them changing
fully tOJ'.OCO bushels and tho other 7TA
OM bushels. This polling co.usl a great
many room traders to dispose of some
of tholr wheat and assisted In the mid
session declines. Tho deliveries on De
cember contracts amounted to JTtftro
bushels, but as this wheat was won
takn care of. It fallbi to affect the mw
ktl. TV, Trlnv'v henvv deliveries of onta
on Deoember contracts was the signal
for heAvy sailing during tho morning and
prlcea were carried downward with the
othor grains. Commission houses were
heavy sellers, of the December, while tho
vere the largest buyers.

gave the general market n somewhat bet
ter tone, nnd trndo on practically all
kinds of rattlo was more active than yes
terday and to that extent at least more
rntlsfactory to the selling Interests,
ilio supply of noef stoers was very
small this morning, nt least the supply
of desirable kinds of killers. At tho same
time there was a reasonably good de
mand, and buyers were out In the ynrds
In good season In tho morning, Tho tradn
proved to bo quite active with prices
ranging nnywhero from strong to 10c
higher than yesterday. This means that
part of the decline yesterday was re
covered today.
Cows and heifers were In nulto liberal
supply nnd for that reason they did not
snow much ir anv improvement: How
ever, they sold somuwhut more freely
il an yesterday witn prices general y
quoted as steady
Stock cattle and feeders of Rood nuality
were In d em nnd at good, steady prices.
The trado while not especially active,
was fairly so and the best of the offer
ings sold In good season. Inferior grades,
becauso of the number of that kind on
sale, were a little slow with the tendency
posnlbly lower.

or 12,600 heftd. Tills makes the two days
total something like 1S.4J7. about the same
ns for last week, but nearly 6,000 smaller
than the corresponding days of last year
inr wcnn ciose on .Monday, with only
a moderate run here. Indicated a very
bearish tendency to the trade, and this
Indication was fully borne out today.
when with a generous supply to tilek
from, packers opened tho market bidding
around a dime lower. During the first
rounds, a fow bunches of good quality
heavy and butcher hogs were sold nt
prices that were no more, than 5Jfl0c
lower, but as soon as the most uruent
orders had been filled the demand slacked
off, nnd from then on the trade In hoav-
les settled down to a dime lower nasi.
Hulk of the butcher and heavy weight
offerings moved nt 17.4W.C0. with h
sprinkling nt $7,65, nnd some real choice
stuff nt $7.70, tho top,
Tho demand for lights continued very
poor, and while a few scattering sales
looked to bo nearly steady, the general
market was unevenly lower. Owing to
this unevcutiess. and tho extreme slow
ness of the trade no very accurate com
parisons are available but It I safe to
say that on the whole values are fully a
dime lower, and In many cases sales
show oven more decline than that. Light
hogs sold largely at a rnnge of $7.00iT
7.35, but there Is quite a sprinkling of
sales scattered on down to $6.75.
Biting up tho general market values
are a big dime lower than Monday s
average. Trndo was very slow through
out, and as there were two or three trains
that did not arrive till rather late, It
was well after midday before any kind
of a clearance was mauo.
