OMAIIA. Dee. 22, 191J.
i., t . 'Kero Is a neneral absence or
fmliS '"wheat, including both caah and
ir,iu'thero 18 11 bu movement brow
I"K..tllat i likely to Rssume wide pro.
portions beforo another month rolla
nrour.d. It may be, however, that those
vno are- accumulating the May future
ore doing so with th expectation of se
curing handsome profits on crop damago
l?.por,s 111 tno spring. Or thore Is a possi
bility that thoso peoplo had in their minds
probable crop losses in Argentina from
weather and an outlay for them in tho
dnapo of handsome profits.
It was reported on Saturday that rain
wan falling in at least threo of the im
portant wheat raising provinces of that
country, and a continuation of the rain
would make a change for the bulls, not
only thoro, but in tho world at large.
Those who are long on May wheat in
the Chicago market may possibly be
forced to sell out at losses, aa sucn
things have happened in years gone by,
but the present holders have bought their
line well, and It will not take much of a
bull market to place them in a position
to fight the boars from all standpoints.
The bears who have sold tho wheat ac
cumulated by the bull party point to tho
last government report on tho crop pros
pects, and they also point to tho big
crop raised last year. It is true that th
wheat surplus in this country Is liberal,
but It cannot bo called burdensome It
Is true, also, that tho condition of the
growing plant as shown by the Docombcr
report will moro than likely prove to bo
the best promise of tho season, as deteri
oration is certain to be seen, and that in
a, marked way beforo the crop has passed
out of tho winter and Into tho spring
Tho greatest drawback to the wheat
trade at present is tho lack of Interest
by tho outsider. Tho foreigner 13 in tho
Chicago market on the bull side, but his
orders aro filled only on price recessions
and ho is, therefore, an unknown quan
tity. Cash wheat was Uo lower.
It seems that the men who have been
banking on December com advanced to
a. much higher altltudo so that they
would be enabled to see handsome profits
on their longs are to be disappointed.
Liquidation has been on a liberal scale
of late and there aro Bald to bo large
linos still held which tho longs are
anxious to dispose of, but the buying
power has at last partially disappeared
for tho time being. The greatest draw
back to tho corn market has been tho
absenco of a demand for cash corn and
with no outlet for tho actual grain the
matter of Bentiment has switched from
the bull to the bear side.
Cash corn was unchanged.
Oata have held up remarkably well
during Uio lost fortnight and this, too,
In the faco of continued talk of large
movement of Canadian oats into this
country. Tho cash trade, however, is
giving our own oats moro attention than
previously and Argentina samples which
havo been sent here are hardly up to tho
wants, or reeuers nnu shippers.

CHICAGO CHAIN AM) PROVISIONS
Fraturcn of the Trmllnif mid Clonlng
Prices on Hoard of Trade.
CHICAGO, Dec. 22.-Huge receipts of
corn 4 hero today pulled down prices for
all grain. Net declines were as follows:
Corn, ttmio to i4o; wheat. Ho to
hiic, and oats, MtUc. In provisions
tho outcome was unchanged to an ad
vance of 7140'lOc.
Estimates of the amount of com arriv
ing In Chicago today ran as high as 1,500
carloads. The consequence was a brean
of incro than lc a bushel in the Decem
ber option. Other months wore affected
also, but to a lesser extent. Immenbc
quantities of low-grade corn went on
sale at unprecedented big discounts, com
pared with quotations for futures. Tho
offerings, however, wero all taken finally
by elevator concerns that expect to find
a. profit in drying.
Omaha reports of 2,000,000 bushels of
corn on the railroad tracks there waiting
to be unloaded acted, as an additional
burden on prices here. So also did ad
vices from New York that a whole train
of Argentine corn had been sold there
to go to Wllkesbarre, Pa. Nevertheless,
shorts failed to smash the market as
completely as had been hoped for and
they covered at a fair upturn during the
last part of the session. t
Snow in the winter crop belt, combined
with the break in com, put the wheat
bulls at a disadvantage. An unexpected
increase of the United States supply
counted, too, In favor of the bears, but
there was some offset in the shape of an
estimate that the Argentine exportable
surplus would not exceed 60,000,000
bushels the smallest total named. Im
proved milling demand helped make the
market at the close firm.
Oata suffered from the setback in
torn and better support from resting or
ders. Shipping call was light.
Provisions rose with hogs. Some re
action followed, though, because of an
expansion of selling on the advance.

NMW YOn, Dec. 22.-A further re
sponse wus made by tho stock market
today to tho news from WnshlnKton of
the currency legislation and tho admin
istration's attitudo regarding enforce
ment of tho anti-trust law. In respect
to both these Influences, which wero
threatening factors In last week's ad
anco report, there were additional de
velopments on which a favorable con
struction wus (laced. Changes made In
tho currency bill In conference, pnrtlcu
larly tho defeat of tho provision for
guarantee of bank deposits, wero to tho
liking of Wall, street. From the White
Houso came tho news that the policy
pursued In the cose of tho American Tel
ephone and Telrgraph company would
be followed with other corporations
whose operations have .brought them un
der the co of tho Department of Jus
tice and that certain of these corpora
tions were ready to take the initiative
In effecting reorganization.
During tho fore part of the day tho
effect of these considerations wero nulli
fied, so far as concerned stock market
movements, by other Influences. Ex
tensive European selling hero was In
keeping down prices. Ixindon unloaded
perhaps 30,00it shares here, and there was
direct selling fr6m Paris, Herlln and
other points. The outlook at Herlln for
a strained money market at tho end of
tho year was said to be responsible for
heavy selling of Canadian Pacific Tor
Uorlln account and tho quotation was
depressed over Friday points. Amoin;
traders In this market there wns a dis
position to take profits. Reallilng Bales
and foreign offerings kept tho market
In check during the morning, with espe
cial heaviness In a few stocks, "t""
Union made a new low price at Mm, and
Missouri Pacific at SWlSU reached the
lowest quotation for years.
The market turned nttcr word camo
from Washington regarding Jclfyro8p.
for settlement out of court of differences
between tho government and corpora
tlons bb was done In the case of Amer -can
Telephone. The most marked eUeet
of this' news was tho quick bidding up

UATTL13 Receipts wero very moderate
this morning, only 101 cars being reported
In. it was fortunate, howovor, that such
was tho case, us no great number of
cattlo Is wuntcd during tho holiday week,
l'hero was, however, a fair demand for
a fowl decent killers and the market
opened early In tho morning with audi
kinds as buyers seemed to want selling
freely with prices around 10c higher.
Kinds less sought aftor were nonet ally
steudy with last week's close. It was all
hi alt a good, healthy market, both on
stoors and cows. There ulso was some
llttlo demand for feeders and whllo the
requirements of buyers wore very lim
ited there wero so fow cattlo hero that
thoso ok salo generally chaugod huuds to
the advantugo of sellers.
It would be well for shippers to bear
In mind that there will bo no market on
Christinas day und that thero novcr Is
much demand for cattlo during tho lust
week or ten days In December. Thoro
Is, however, cull for a fow cuttlo nnd It
frequently huppciiH that when receipts
aro very light good prices prevail during
tho holiday season by reason of tho
Bcarclty of supplies. On tho other hand,
with anything llko liberal receipts tho
market could hardly fall to bo unsatis
factory. It follows then thut shipping
any great number of cuttlo during tho
holiday season is decidedly hazaidous.
