Bull Crowd Takes on Heavy Load
of Yellow Cereal.
WHEAT TAKES NEW STRENGTH
Hinnll nrntrt la ShorrltiR Increased
Stability n n Resnlt of the
Unexpected Tnrn In the
OMAHA, Jan. 29, 1914.
The old bull crowd is again In corn,
and In a bin way. Not only the Patten
crowd, but the room speculators aro as,
one when It comes to the probable courso
ot corn prices In the future. The bullish
movement now on In tho corn pit is tho
result ol claims whoch huvo been made
by sumo ot the speculators at Uuenoa
Ayres that locusts have damaged the
crop thoro and that tho exportable sur
plus will be Krcntly reduced. Millions of
bushels of the yellow cereal have been
taken aboard heru during the last few
days and those who led In the buying
are still willing to absorb offerings. At
no time during the session was the sup
ply equal to tho amount wanted.
And while there are strong men on the
bull side of corn, there Is a coterie of
speculators in the market who are selling
freely on all bulges, and these people
are enabled to show to tho casual ob
server that corn is not only likely to
sell much too high during this campaign,
but that It Is now In a top heavy posi
tion. One of the bull concerns said last
night that there Is a likelihood of the ad
vance continuing, and that it will be
dangerous under these conditions to put
out short lines with the expectation of
securing profit. The present weather Is
favorable for the advance in prices, as
It is too mild for shelling and movement
of corn, although a cold wave has been
A great deal of the strengths hown by
tho wheat market was taken from com.
In addition to this, was the forecast for
cold weather throughout tho winter wheat
belt, and the fact that the young plant
Is unprotected by snow. Advices from
Kansas, Nebraska and other states
where winter wheat Is raised told of the
probability of crop deterioration, as tho
plant has commenced to grow again, and
it is tender and sappy and in no condi
tion to stand any very low temperatures.
Oats were stronger and showed gains
of HUvsC,. mostly In sympathy with the
Upturn In corn. The cash market here,
as well as at outside markets, was strong,
and the undertone of tho future market
seemed rather steady,
Tho further depression In provisions
and the selling In tho last few days was
tho result of action on tho part of the
largor packers, who knew that unless
something was done In the way of re
ducing prices the cash trade would con
tinue flat. Therefore prices wore let
down and a general shake-out was tho
result. The holders of tho big lino of
ribs and lard, through the houso of
Knight McDougal, have refused up to
this time to let go, and It 1b possible that
tho larger packers will level their guns
at theso people and attempt to forco

ST. LOUIS, Jan. 29. Application for tho
dissolution ot tho receivership of tha
AVabush railroad and for a decreo of fore
closure wan made to Elmer it. Adams,
United States circuit judge, here tqdayt
by attorneys representing the bond

equipment bonds. Judge Adams ' Inti
mated that he would announce a final
foreclosure decree within ten days.
Lawrenoe Qreer and George Murray,
representing the Equitable Trust com

holders ot the railroad, submitted id
Federal Judge Adams a- form of fore
closure decree, which, lt granted, will
order the sale of the Wabash properties
at auction unless the $41,000,000 mortgage
held by the Equitable company la paid
within five days.
The proceeding was not publlo and the
plans for reorganising the railroad, which
has been in tho hands ot receivers since
December, ltll, have not been announced.
Many men prominent in railroad circles
considered the sale of the road a foregone

some agreement already haa been reached
between the Wabash officials and, its
creditors, whereby foreclosure proceed?
lnga could be averted.
The Wabash was put in the hands ot
receivers on complaint of the Westing
house Air Drake company, which has Jt
claim ot $18,000 against the road. Later
