Hheep For a Thursday sheen and lamb
receipts were geaeroua, arrivals counting out
fifty -three ears, or something like 11,000
head. It was late la tha day before a clear
ante was finally made yeaterday. With such
ueojrmi ocienngs irom wnicn to make their
(elections this week packers have been
poor buyers of the heavy lambs as wall as
eoma of more handy weights that lacked
finish. and aome of this sort waa net
tha help of feeder buyer thy were cleaned
up at figures that were a Quarter or Aiore
.below the previous day.
. There waa a better tone to the market
1 thla morning, but lamba failed to show
much more activity than they have an pre
vious daya. While realising that supplies
have been comparatively heavier here than
at any other point thla weak aellers thought
thomaelvea entitled to aome eort of an att
vanoa today and consequently took their
time about cutting loose whan packers came
ut with ataady bids. Than, too, a number
of tralna were late and this nearly always
moana a rather slow market.
It waa noon before tha bulk of the lambs
changed hand First sales were fully
ataady, and later on the market developed
soma strength, being called generally steady
to a dime higher. On paper the general
run of sales did not show much of any
change, but the quality wan hardly up to
y?terday's standard, and thla accounted for
the. small advance quoted. Most of the
handy Umbo again sold at 111.00016,16. A
scattering of In-between klnda landed "un
der the hill," while the beat light ted waat-
erns took 112.16, The day's extreme top of
112.lt waa paid for two loada of Mexicans
' mm uw smiiub icoju wi m loose that
brought 913.49 a week ago today. Vo far
as comparing them with the bulk of the
. offerings Is concerned, they are la a clasa
by themselves.1 Clipped lamba were no more
than ateady, and alow at that. Handyweights
'that lacked flatah brought 1 11.16.

Chicago, Jan. 4. Export buslnesa on

weakness that for a brief time seised the
wheat market today, owing to -reports that
President Wilson would make a fresh effort
to end hostilities in Europe. After an ex
treme descent of lc, prices cloned nervous
at net losaaa of l01c, with May at
61.1401.64, and July at 11.41 t 1.60
Corn finished l91c down, and oata off
01e. In prorlalona the outcome ranged
from a setback of 19e to Z7a advance.
It was only for few minutes, that the
wheat market gave evidence of oeml-de
moralliatlon and Dlunaed? violently down
ward beyond ordinary limits. The accom
panying heavy selling had been Induced by
the peace news from Washington but waa
quickly counteracted by announcement that
export sales of wheat aggregated roughly
3.000,000 bushels. Holder who had been
stampeded Into the selling movement that
resulted from the changed outlook aa to the
war situation were rapidly awltohtng been

though the confidence of many bulls had
been too badly shaken for any new venture
until mora time waa afforded to get a more
thorough comprehension aa to the nature of

belligerent govern menu to an understand-
Before the peace reports ' came-4 from
WaahiogtoD. sentiment In the wheat pit
waa moderately bearish, owing tn the main
to doubt aa to the advisability of following
up the 11 -cent advance which had been
scored In the preceding forty-eight hours.
Evan the enthualaats whose; avowed aim
was to lift prices to 11 a bushel, admitted
that the rise had been over swift, and that
something of a reaction waa duo. The num
ber of dealers waa small, nowever, wno
were prepared for as radical i break as
temporarily resulted from latest hints of a
chance for peace. -f t
Corn weakened chiefly In consequence of
the enlarged country acceptances of bids
from Chicago. The market, however.'-was
steadier later by advices that the entente
allies purchased 1,600.000 bushels in the laat
twenty-four hours. Oats duplicated tha ac
tion of cam. It waa said the aales to the
seaboard yeaterday and today amounted to
Advanced quotations on hogs made provi

came from shorts.
