CHICAGO GRAIN AND PROVISIONS
restart of tke Trading and Closing
Price oa Board of Trade.
CHICAGO, Dec. 30. Prospects that the
Sue, canal would become part of the
war aone had much to do today with
causing higher price In the wheat mar
ket here. The close wa bouysnt at lc
to 2Vf-'Hc net advance, with May $I.U7H
and July $1.18. Other leading staples
too, all showed gains corn. '≤ oats,
Ke to i4Hc and provision 22ci&''6f!.
Wheat trader In general assumed that
as a result of th Increasing war risk
which had caused the trebling of Insur
snoe rate on vessel routed oy way of
Hue any active competition rrom Aus
tralia or India would be largely shut
off. The outcome was an Immediate ad
vance In prices here. Reports that the
Canadian government had been selling
commandeered wheat led afterward to
setbacks, but denials followed, and th
market developed greater strength tnsn
before and specially when word came
that cargo quotations at Uverpool had
gone sharply higher.
Decreased receipts In the Amerlcsn
northwest cut considerable figure In
spreading bullish sentiment as to wheat.
Despite liberal selling on account of
favorable weather corn rose with wheat.
Recelpta were disappointing to the bears.
Oats hardened with other grain. It wa
said there would be a liberal movement
of oats from here as soon as the embargo
against shipments to the seaboard was
Provisions advanced owing largely to
buying on the part of grain houses. A
substantial upturn In the price of hogs
gave declderi help In lifting provisions.

waa received today, estimates railing for
239 cars, or 16,800 head. Receipt for the
four day are 60.8x7 head, being 30,000
smaller than a week ago and 4,(m0 short
of two weeks ago, but a gain of 13.600
over the aame days of last year. To
day' supply puis the receipts for th
month in record -breaking notche.
Shippers got going In fair season and
started out paying fully 6c higher price
for the ort of hogs they wanted. They
paid as high a $6.60, and bought th
bulk of their hog around S6.40fto.4u.
Packer were slow getting started, and
their early offers were no more than
stesdy. Advices from other market
were, however, very encouraging and
nothing started selling until killers raised
their bids to the nickel higher notch.
Even then only a few hogs were i ashed,
and values were largely fglOc above yes
terday, when the bulk finally began mov
ing scaleward. Movement was not a
active a might have been expected on a
higher market, and trading dragged
through the greater part of the forenoon.
General market was largely tVtflOc sbov
Wednesday, good lights. If anything,
showing the most advanca. In other
words, all of yesterday' decline wa re
gained and current value are a big dim
above the close of laat week. Despite
the fact that Ihls month's recelpta have
been of the record-breaking variety, prices
today are 6il0c higher than they wer
on December 1. Bulk sold at u.V(j ...
a good many loads reaching $6.50, the top.
As usual, soma of the common light and
mixed hog were overlooked, and while
the close was almost as good a any (lino
on anything packer wanted, noon found
a number of bunchea that no one seemed
to fancy still In first hands.
