Today's caah market waa very dull, both
on account of extremely light recelpta and
becauee of the fact that there waa a big
a fx-line in prtcee.
cejin wheat waa very weak, and with the
price or inia cereal ruling from 7c to c
lower, the aellere were not very anxloue to
ell at eurh a big decline, and coneequently
a good percentage of tbe aamplea were held
The Inability to ehln train from thin
market baa contributed largely to the dflll
neae tn the local cash market, ae shlppere
not want to load 00 their elevator when
inry cannot gat care to move their grain
At noon today only nix cam of wheat
were reported aold. Three care of No. 2
hard brouaht 11. 1T. 1 car of No. 3 -old at
11.14, a cer of No. 4 hard brought 1.0, and
a car of No. I durum mixed aold at 11.61.
Tbe corn market waa much the iim an
wheat, and with prlcea ruling from 3c
3o off, the trade In thle article waa very
quiet. A rurloue thlnr about the corn mer
ket waa the fact that corn coming Into thle
mantel in foreign eyetem cars wan In atrong
mand at premium price, as theee
can be ihlpped to tout hern points, whercHn,
care belonging to the domestic railroads
cannot be loaded for points outside their
n territory- No. 3 white com waa cooled
at 43 to 36c. No. 3 mixed sold et ti c.
and the only car of yellow corn which waa
aoin graded No. ft and brought 13ic.
The oala market wea at a standstill and
not a car of this cereal waa sold up
and no quotations were given on this
cereal, but the market would probably bo
lower, in sympathy with the other mar
Rye was quoted 1c lower, and barley watt
quo tea nominally uncnanged. with practln
ally no trade in either of these markets.
