Hoga Packer war In a bearlah mood
thla morning and la tha absence af any
definite report on the day'a run tbey

making very few blda of any sdrt. An AAA

meat too amall - bo wort;, of mention.
and, with aellera all aaklng around ateady
pncee, no pacaar aoga aaa aold up ta mld
forenoon. ' -
In tha end the market opened larglly
a dime lower, and for a while movement
waa fairly active, aollera having come to
me oonoiualoa that they were slaying
losing game and being, willing to cash atuff
aa long as packer would take it. Tha re
waa ino usual unovenneee in ina trade, ana
oplnlona of the market were many and
varied, soma tradora ealliag tha saarkst

By aoon whatever Ufa there had been
la tha trade had died out Moat of the

and at midday It waa estimated that there
were between twenty.flvs and forty loads
In first hands. Packers were Bot showing
much Interest In these, such bids aa tbey

Sheep Not much more thaa half of the
estimated supply had been yarded when
packers started out, but there was some
doubt as to whether the belated trains would
. get lir ta time for today'a trade, and, aa
' packers were hungry for lamba after yes
terday's short run, tb market opened early,
good klnda aelltng freely at prlcee that were
largely a dime higher. Early aalea included
a good bit of stuff up to $13.ft6t 13.10, and
a top of 11116 was made. Several loads of
feeder thai were on offer were enapped up
readily at about the same sort of an up
turn, a very desirable kind reaching 113.36,
with others aa high as 13120. Advance
of lis much aa 10 01 to were noted in the
early mutton sales, a string ot ewe touch
ing 11.66, with wethers at 11.36.
At noon th situation had failed to show
much of any change. Quite a bit of stuff
that aellera Were eipecllng had not yet
arrived, and la some cases It was doubtful
If shipment would get tn for today. A
fair clearance of th ariy arrivals had
been made at midday. Nothing had aold
abov 111.16, which Is a new record for
thle point. Clippers reached new levels, on

Ministers Asked s
To Help Buy Shoes
, For Poor Kiddies
An appeai for shoe money ii to be
made from the pulpits in Omtht, if
the advisory committee of the Asso
ciated Charities is successful in per
suading the ministers to join with it,
A special committee, consisting of Dr.
I. ,W. Porter and Rabbi Frederick
Cohn, was appointed at the noon
meeting to write a letter to all the
ministers asking of they could make
such an appeal from their pulpits,
some Sunday soon. "The need of
money witb which to buy shoes for
the poor children of the city is very
great," said Rabbi Cohn.
There is a feeling among the advis
ory committee that with the many de
mands at present being made on the
people of Omaha for charitable work
and for subscriptions to many noble
and worthy projects, there is danger
that many may forget the regular es
tablished charities which annually re
quire large sums. "The poor are al
ways with us," said a member of the
committee in discussing this point.
"The projects now being pushed for
public subscriptions are all worthy
ones, but we hope that the drain will
not be so heavy as to interfere with
the needs of the Associated Charities."

TRADING EXTREMELY DULL
Omaha, December 13, lilt.
Today cash market was an exceptionally
dull affair and while the buyers were will

ket prices, the sellers did not feel like
selling at such a heavy decline, the whaat
mant-ei oemg quoted several cents lower.
About the only trading on the floor wan
done In wheat and the sales of that cereal
wore ettremelr light, only a few oar of
No, 3 hard wheat being sold up to noon.
The beet salts of No. 3 hard today were
about c under yesterday's average price,
while the bulk of today's offering went at
a 6tc decline.
Considering the big drop In wheat the
corn market held 'up very well, and while
the sale of thl cereal were aleo very
light, a car of No. I yellow corn sold for
ISu, a cent under yesterday's price, -
There was practically no trading in oats,
the only sale up to noon being a car of
sample white, which brought Glo and a
few sales of No. t white at filOSlc.
No aalea of rye were reported and this
market wax quoted nomlnaly 2&Za lower,
while barley was quoted several cent
lower, the only sales of this cereal beln a

CHICAGO GRAIN AND PROVISIONS,
Wheat Price Crumpled by Germany's Peace
Chicago. Dec 12. Germany's offer today
to make peace smashed the wheat market.
Selling became almost frantic, especially
after what purported to be the math points
of the offer were learned. Prices fell In
some casea 1144c a bushel and closed wild
at ll.l&tt 01.66 for May and 91.420
1.41 for July, with the market as a whole
4 lfto under yesterday's finish. Corn
lot !U.O4o net and oat 3U.tf3e. In
provisions th outcome was a rHse of 6066c.
Although the first flash of peace news
reached Chicago at nearly th exact mo
ment. of the opening of the wheat market.
It was not until a quarter of an hour later
that trader In general were aware of the
announcement, which had been made at
Berlin. Meanwhile th market had been
displaying weakness that was ascribed for
the most part to th stoppage of export
sales and to the chance of a serious dis
agreement between Washington and Berlin
over attack by submarines. As soon as
dispatches appeared In print, however, tell
ing of th oerman oner to negotiate for
peace, owner of wheat began to throw
holdings overboard seemingly without limit
and price plunged downward in earnest.
Fully an hour and a half went by before
excitement subsided and then only to flame
out again when near the end of the day at
tention was centered on Washington ad
vpoes credited to the German embassy set
ting forth a statement said t outline the
basis of th Oerman offer.
Semi-demoralisation ruled the wheat pit
; the last, as opinion seemed to gain

Corn showed stubborn resistance t"' sell
ing pressure. Prices gave way only by slow
degrees as compared with wheat. Somie
liquidation owing to the peace outlook wan
witnesses, but the volume of offerings could
not be described as very large. The action
of oats paralleled that of corn. Baying at
times was lively, but stop-loss orders from
owners were numerous after wheat started
a second whirl downgrade.
