Hogs Tor a Monday the hog market was
very liberally supplied, estimates calling for
1H cars or 13.100 head. With the excep
tion of three wee Us sgo this Is the largeat
Monday run In months, being more than
1,000 larger than last week, over 3.000
grealer than Iws weeks ago and A gals
of several hundred head over Iks sons
spondlng day laat year.
Considering the fact that supplies vers
so large everywhere, markets were In good
condition all around the loop. Chicago had
almost 70,000 hogs, but eerly wires pre
dicted a steady market there, and the local
trade opsnsd out fairly early at steady to
In no caee more than to lower figures. Ship
ping demand did sot seem to be aa broad
as on last week's close, but at that the
outslds outlet waa very fair.
, Movement waa active, and a good nhars
of the offerings bad changed hands before
10 o'clock. Packers did not take any too
kindly to some of the real light and plainer
mixed kinds, but that is nothing vnusual,
and everything thai was desirable moved
rredlly enough. '
The market averaged lust a shade under
lest week s close, ealea ranging, as noted.
from steady to not over a nickel lower. Bulk
'of the aupply moved at A apread of 11.10
T 01-10. and nothings sold above fio.oo.

Sheep The run of ahfp and lambs waa
smauer von man last mono ay, anu, in
.fact, the smallest for a Monday since July.
Herelpte wer estimated at forty-two cars,
or 10,000 head which la 800 abort of a week
ago, only tuff as large as two weeks ago,
and almost 8.000 smaller than for the same
Monday or last year.
W hile receipti were not overly heavy, the
trade failed to fVaot from laat Friday's de
cline. Indications were that a sharp slump
was In order elsewhere, a combination of
extraordinarily tiigb prlcea. and the usual
letup In the demand previous to the holi
days, bringing a bearish tendency every
) where. Locally, packer started out bidding
as much a a quarter lower than Friday's
' . general market.
There waa little done until after mtd
forenoon. but when movement finally did
' start offers had been raised some, moat
of the sale being called 10tc lower than
last week ! close. On paper prices showed
declines of all of 10016c and In some rases
even more, but quality of the offerings was
hardly a good as on the cloalng days ot
the week. Best lam he stopped at 813.70,
with bulk of the deatrable itufC upwards
irom ll J. 60.
Ewe showed fully as much decline as
ismba, and were tlow at that. One band
sold at 18.36. and thl. with another string,
which waa still In the pens at midday.
( roaoe up tne Hum or the mature offerings.
Feeding lamb wera unchanged. Only a
couple of car were on offer and these
sold at 111 00ffi:.J6. Feeder ewea also

Ebb and Flow of Peace Rumors
Vital Factor of the
New York. Dec. 11. The ebb slid flow
of peace rumors constituted the most vital
actor of today's market, advances ano He
lloes at limes occurring In bewildering
fashion. There were occasional reminders of
the turbulent movements that created such
serious unsettlement and attrition during
the previous week. Industrial Alcohol re
cording an extreme decline of almost 10
polnla, with pronounced pressure verging
upon weekness In motors, metals, and ship
ping shsres.
Dealings lacked breadth and rrll away
to the comparatively small total of 1.260,
000 shares. More than half of the trading
took place In the forenoon, industrials, cop
pers and secondsry rails being the most con
spicuous efstures.
Favorab s auguries were founa in me en
ter bank statement and the continuance of
easy money rates. Nevertheless, responsinie
financial Interests again counselea caution
and special stocks experienced a further lev
eling In bank loans. Public Interest wss neg
ligible, except In railroads, or wnicn toe
recent inquiry was well sustained.
Gross advances or l to almost s points
were scored by low-priced rails, with free
takings of Wabash preferred shares. Lake
Brie A western, Wheeling s Le .rie.
Western Maryland and Chicago Oreat Weat-
ern preferred, coalers ss a group re
flected the shortage of that commodity,
which threatens to curlall ths Immediate
output of leading steel and Iron mills.
Southern Rellway was the most active of
all rails, but reacted on realising sales.
United States steel led tne entire list,
fluctuating 3 points and closing at a net
loss of 1H. Coppers were consistently
heavy, a condition attributed to reported
price concessions by soms of the big pro
ducers for future deliveries of the metal
and by producte dropped In some of the
petroleums. Harvestsr issues ana ciner
stocks of less definite description weere
offset by reversals In ssaaoned shares, the
tone at the close being distinctly irregular.
Uxchsngs on the Teutonic countries yieiu-
sd perceptibly from last week's recovery,
llres also receding abruptly with rubles and
a moderate shading of francs.
Chile Concern 7s featured tne uneven nono
market at an advance of over 5 points. Total
sales of bonds, par value, 13, 460,000. United
Statea bonde were unchanged on call.

Omahs Future Market.
Wheat had a firmer tone today with a
strong cash situation and a renewed ex
port demand the principal factora In the
market. For a time during the early trad
ing hours it looked like the boara had again
taken control, a May wheat declined about
lc, but the May article reacted and reamed
a high point of $1.60, where It closed.
The loral trade was very active and waa
confined mainly to May wheat and corn,
although there was aome local Interest In
oat. The wheat situation 1 regarded by
the trade as very uncertain and while the
political situation Is a bearish factor, the
belief Is that while there Is any amount of
export business, prices will hold their pres
ent level.

Wheal Open Lower on Romors of Peace
Confer dco Next Month.
Chicago, Dec. II. Varying opinion" re
garding the chance of peace formed the
basis of moot of the speculative trading
In wheat today with, increased peanlmlsin
at-the end that Lloyd George's reply to
Germany tomorrow would nut point to a
speedy stoppage of the war. Quotation
closed strong c to 2c net higher, at
11.64 to $1.64 for May and $1.38 to
$1.38 for July. Com gained 1 c to 2c.
and oati, 0 c to c. In provisions the
outcome ranged from 16c decline to a rise
of $.
At first th bears had the advantage
In wheat. Confident German assertions that
a peace conference would assemble about
January 16 and that hostilities would ceaso
within ninety days put fhe market on the
downgrade, and It waa not until a sub
stantial decline had been registered that
buyers began to take hold more freely and
to bring about a rally. Subttequently other
sag took plaee a a result of a big In
crease of the United States visibly supply
to talk and because the government crop
report showed a material enlargement of
the dome tic area planted with winter
wheat. Aa to the greater acreage, however,
there was something of an offset In the
fact that the condition of the crop was
shown to be at lowest since 1911. In the
late dealing sentiment concerning the peace
outlook seemed to have veered altogether
away from the optimistic views current
earlier In tha session. Published London
comment were Interpreted a almost uni
formly advene to hopes of a favorable
respopM to the German proposal. In ad
dition, goeaip waa current that big European
order for flour were In the market, a
curcustance which appeared to be evidence
of probable continued fighting.
Complaints of a scarcity of railway cars
at rural stations had a bullish Influence In
corn. Bealdes the weather was such as
to Increase feeding on the farms. Oats kept
within relatively narrow limits. Tho com
parative steadiness of the market waa due
to covering by shorts whenever prices tend
ed to fall.
Provision like wheat fluctuated In value
mainly owing to assumed changes In the
peace outlook. Trade wsa light and the
market affected.

Organized Under the Laws of Arizona Capitalization, 4,000,000 Shares.
Fully-Paid and Non-Assessable
at 5
ha big proven Copper property of 176 acres on which approximately $500,000 has
been expended in development and equipment. Properties cover apex and extension
of great persistent fissure vein 10 to 60 feet wide on surface for two miles, opened up
by two shafts, the finest equipped in the Southwest, to the depth of 400 feet, showing
four big ore bodies and placing in sight values estimated by engineer to that depth of
Formation and geological conditions similar to those of Butte and experts say that
the properties have the making of ANOTHER ANACONDA MINE.
Company has all-steel construction mill, 300-horsepower electric plant, auto
trucks, etc. Plant electrically driven.
Values based to various depths on already proven ore bodies are estimated as
follows ($10 per ton): to 800 feet, $32,000,000; to 1400 feet, $56,000,000; to 2000
feet, $80,000,000; to 3200 feet, $128,000,000.
It is desired to sell the present allotment of treasury stock to add a few mill and
power installations, the management planning to make it a DIVIDEND PAYER six
months thereafter.
In accordance with our custom this stock will be offered shortly for
listing on the Boston Cuicb Exchange.
Reservations may be made by wire at our expense. Remittances may follow by
next mail. Allotments of stocks will be made in the order of receipt of orders.
Only the remainder of the allotment of 200,000 treasury shares may be ob
tained at 50.
This is, in our opinion, the cleanest cut, best developed and best equipped copper
proposition offered within recent years and those acquiring the stock at the present
low offering price receive the unusual benefit and advantage of years of labor and
several hundred thousand dollars in invested capital, bringing this mine practically
to the point of large and permanent production.
We believe this offering will be at once largely oversubscribed and therefore
urge immediate forwarding of orders.
