Public Speculators Badly Needed to

OMAHA, Feb. 16. 1911.
The public Is badly needed In tile
wheat market at Chicago. IJuslness In
wheat Is now between professionals
and the markets of the country may bo
called Bcalplng affairs. Of course, there
are "hrdglnn" transactions and there
ra "spreads' made between Chicago and
the smaller markets, but these transact
tlons have very little to do with the
rango of values, as they continue nar
row and unattractive. There aro many
now waiting for a chance to Invest In
the wheat market, but they will not
come In as buyers until the prospects
sre for a quick turn. Sentiment cn
whtat In bearish, with tho trade either
Bhort or oven up.
.At this season of year there Is always
a coterlo of men who buy wheat and
stand on It for a profit. Thoso who
have mado money In years gono by have
been the ones to take tho grain on tho
weak spots. It will be remembered that
the bull crowd In Chicago, who lost
money for several years past on carry
ing a big line of wheat In anticipation
of crop losses In the Argentine, and who
suffered heavy losses, became weary of
making a play of that kind and now
that tho Argentine crop has been heavily
reduced they are not to be found In the
market because of tho bearish condi
tions surrounding wheat at Chicago arid
in almost the entire world.
The bulls in wheat were anything but
idlo during the latter part of last week
In reporting the' takings of cash wheat
in various vosltlons. Duluth has con
siderable wheat afloat and It was re
ported Saturday that a round lot of No.
1 northern had been sold for shipment to
Buffalo at the opening of navigation. A
rumor was current In local circles that
a, round lot of No. 2 northern had changed
hands at Chicago, but could not be con
firmed. ,T,ho.. stitlstlcs to appear late today
will Hlt bo moro bullish than bearish
and a further Increase In the vlslblo sup
ply Is expected. While tho world's ship
ments will be only moderate, a largo in
crease in the amount on passage Is ex
pected, and this will bvorbalanco a great
Thor business In both cash corn und
pats; continues exceptionally small and
in order to- place any strength in thoso
markots there must be a change. The
east is either not using any grat amount
at course grains or It lu securing them
elsewhere. Tho weather is excellent for
the .-finishing of corn' In cribs as well as
for shelling and moving It. The roads
also are good for hauling oatB and It is
expected that tho interior will offer these
grains more freely as; spring appears,
word was received at Chicago Saturday
t Iowa was offering Increased quan
tities of corn at both Chicago and Kart
City and that some sections were
asking for bids on oats.
The larger packers in the provision
trade continue in full control of that
market and- they are on the buying sldo
on 'all recessions. The east Is expected
to continue as a buyer of live hogs in
this market.

Coffee Mnrket,
NEW YORK, Feb. 16,-Smaller Uraxll
lan coffee receipts seemed to be attrib

failed to Inspire maVh buying In today's
market. Tho opening was dull at a de
cline of 4 to 6 points and active months
sold seven to nine points net lower dur
ing the early trading .in rcsponso to dis
appointing cables and reports ot lower
cost and freight offers. A rally to
within two or three points of Saturday's
closing figures followed on covering, but
the market weakened again under ro
nowed liquidation, closing steady, but

HOGS Supplies were light this morn
ing, even for u Monday, only about
flfty-flvo cars, or 3.M0 head being re
ceived. This Is loss than half ns large
as last week, and more than 2,000 short
of tho same day last year.
Ah is usual on the first day of the
week, packers weiq slow about taking
hold, and while other markets reported
ronvlderable strength, the first bids
made here were no moro than sternly.
The moBt of tho salesmen refused to cut
loose at tho prices offered and trado
was very dull for the first hour and a
half, hut offers finally strengthened up
and when the bulk of tho offerings
finally moved prices wero quoted as
mostly a nickel higher than Saturday's
average. Trade was slow all the way
inrougn, oui receipts worp so light that
a cuaranco was euccieil by a reason
able earlv hour.
Most of the sales were made at a
range of $8.2008.45, and tops reached
$8.50. a flat nickel better than Satur
day's high price. As a rule light and
light mixed were the first to sell
this morning, and salesmen were of the
opinion inai u anyiiinig tney showed
more advance than some of the heavlefc.

trade, howover, th local market was
fully steady on the best grades of sheep
and lambs whllo on the other hand any
thing not just stiltnblo to the packer
buyers had to sell anywhere from weak
io manse lower man tho close or last
week and the movement In such klnJa
was slow at that. Considering the heavy
receipts hero and the bearish reports
from outside points sellers rrearded the
trade as fairly satisfactory, but look for
no price Improvement unless receipts
aro kept down within moderate propor
tions. Most of the trnsactlnn In tlio la ml,

been paid for two loads. Such ewes as
wero here sold largely at $4.9ilflM.15, and
some wethers weighing 12S pounds were
Rood enough to bring $3 55.
The receipts wero estimated at some
16,500 head, compared with 13.741 a week
