.CHICAGO ((BAIN AM POVMION".
Wheat After CauUeas Stevi Scores Moderate
Chicago. Feb. 2. Rumors that an Ameri
can ship had been sunk and that loss of life
had resulted brought unsettled close. The
finish ranged from 2o decline to e ad
vance as 00m pared with yesterday's latest
figures Corn and oats wound up vlrutally
unchanged and provisions lOo to Slo higher.
Kiuriled trading In wheat did not de
velop until the last hour of the session and
wits confined .chiefly to the May option.
The fad that the sellers were led by a
house which had successfully anticipated
yesterday's big break in prices did e good
deal to emphasise the weakness acoom
panted the rumors of a naval mishap. On
the other hand lack of confirmation of any
attack on an American craft served to check
a general fall In prices. It was not until
after the day's business was at an end that
the probable basis for the rumors was found
in dispatches referring to the destruction
of a Bulglan relief ship which may possibly
have had Americans on board,
Hxertme cold endangering the winter crop,
especially In Illinois and Missouri gave a
moderate lift to wheat prices during the
earlier part of the day. Venturesome buy
ers were disposed alee to take the ground
that the absence as yet of any rapture be
twetn the United States and Germany af
forded hope that a break In diplomatic rela
tions might still bo averted. A majority
of dealers, however, seemed inclined to
preserve a cautious attitude pending definite
developments and there waa not much
volume to business prior to the commotion
1 due to disturbing rumors after midday.
Indications of a revival of seaboard de
mand fof com-strengthened that cereal
. temporarily but profit taking on the part
of buyers resulted afterward In a reaction,
Hprlnfleld, Ilk, sold 200,000 bushels to go to
the seaboard at the highest premiums on the
crop. Oats merely kept pace with corn.
Trade waa light.
Provisions bulged on account of buying
' that was credited to packers and to eastern
houses. The beat demand waa for lard.

Hog Hog receipts continued very light
under the Influence of cold weather, some
sixty-eight cars, or 6.000 head, putting In
their appearance. The total for the five
day is 07,348 head, aa compared with
87,001 a week ago, 11,134 two weeks ago and
II, 101, a year ago.
The market wao a mors or lea dreggy
and extremely uneven - affair. Despite the
lightness of receipt and reports of treen
strengthening In provisions, packers again
had very bearish Ideas and early in the day
talked half dollar declines, but refused to
make bids. Shippers were very quiet, and
bought only a couple or three scattering
loads early, which looked about steady with
yesterday's packer market, or 26930c be
low the higher shipper market
When packers finally did start t they
had revised their early Ideas a good deal,
but they were still talking lower, making
first offers anywhere from 10c to a quarter
tower than the prios they paid yesterday.
Sellers were entirely up la the air, but In
view of the present unsettled conditions and
the fact that provision were aUU consider
ably lower than two days ago, the eon
eeaelone packers were asking did not look
exhorbttant and It was not long until the
bulk of the hogs started moving at the de
cline named, that Is 10926e under yester-
aeys packer trade, or s9c lower than
yesterday's early ahipper market, which
mesne a decline of somewhere around 109
3 60 from yesterday's average. The bulk of
the offerings sold at 111.16911.40, with scat
tering lights below this spread and a few
loads of god heavies as high aa 111.60.
As a general thtnR weighty kinds showed
less ot a slump than lights, though this
was not true In every case.

BBADSTBEET'S TRADlJ REVIEW.
Trad fArclee ' Disturbed By Crave
Character of Not.
New Tork. Feb. 3. Bradstreet'e will say;
Trade circles have been disturbed by
the grave character of the new German
note and speculative markets depressed by
waves of liquidation shipping rates and in
surance risks sharply advanced and hesi
tancy In buying of bulk commodities
engendered pending developments. But
most of the week's business had been trans
acted before publication of the note and
all accoonts agree In chronicling remarkable
activity, with wanti rather than hlgtt prlcee
propelling buying .while scarcity of goods.
Insufficient productive capacity, lack of
labor, and shortage of railway cars loomed
large as ever,
Dtetributlon by .retail dealers has been
animated by cold weather over a wide area,
anrl lo consequence re-orders for winter
good expanded. Industrial lines manifest
activity, hut the shortage of railway facili
ties, made worse by cold weather, restricts
receipts a well as outbound shipment.
Bank clearings, $6,140, 003,000, a loss of
4.3 per cant from last week.
