' Bo far as packers were concerned there
Vast nothing doing until late In the morn

earlier rounds, and seemed to be trying to
hold prices down to a steady basts. In fact
their first bids were no more than stsady
with yesterday. Sellers, encouraged by yes
terday's runaway close asked a quarter
hlghar on th opening, and tt took them

the market was never very active, the bulk

The close was very draggy. When there

Sheep Pric declines th last tew days
were probably mainly responsible for ths
smallness of today's sheep and lamb run.
At any rat receipts were the lightest for
a Wednesday lu .uits a while, only about
n toe teen loads, or 4,600 head, showing up.
Th tout for th first half of the week
la 90,094 head, being 9.000 short of Isst
week and 10.000 lighter than two weeks
ago, but about 1,609 larger than a. year
. ago. .....
Despite th fact that receipts were so
much smaller demand for lambs remained
Indifferent. Other points reported slow mar
kets, with packers trying for easier prices,
and th local trad dragged through most
of th forenoon before much el anything
It was well along In th forenoon when
offerings Anally started selling 'at flguree
i that were about steady with yesterday's
close Outsid two or three cars the sup.
ply was only of fair quality and this. In
addition to th lightness of th run, made
. It hard to compare prices even after trade
was under way. Everything wag cleaned
up by midday. A tew cars of weighty
lambs told at 919-90 and on down, while
several loads of decent Colorado landed
913.86. A coup) of cars of good light and
handy westerns made 914.06014. 15, and the
high price of th day 114.10 wss paid
for light Mexicans. A good kind of fall
clipped lambs sold steady at 118.00.
Ewes, white not In overly large supply,
got Into th dumps today and after a
draggy session th bulk of th supply was
cleaned up at figures that were fully 10c
' lower, and might have been even more than
- that In some cases. Nothing els In tthe
mature tin was offered. Several cars of
good owes wnr bought at 111.40, which
packers consider as high ss anything would
sell, and some fair to decent stuff was
bought downward to 911.00. The prices
paid for ons or two bunches of feeders
- looked fully steady, though hardly enough
was- her to really make a market A load
of light Nebraska lambs reached 914.26,
which equals th high price of the sesaon.

CHICAGO GRAIN AND PROVIMIONS.
Wheat Is Stronger and Higher on Prospect
f Improved Hhlpplng Conditions,
Chicago, Feb, 28. Reports of sxtraor-
dlnary endeavors by the British govern
ment to facilitate shipments led to material
advances today In the value of whett. Al
though unsettled at the close, the market
showed gains of 9 to to net, with li! ay
at li.Rl to 91.ll and July at $1.64 to
91.54. Corn gained 14 to 1 '4c oats
t He, and provisions, 37o 9o $1.02.
Owing to the fact that houses with sea
board connections wore big buyers of wheat,
the trade attached mueh credence to the
statements that Hrltlah authorities were
trying to charter as grain carriers all the
vesssls possible and were offering to pay
three times ordinary rstes, besides guaran
teeing owners agalnat ail war risks. It waa
ssld also that export purchssers during the
last ten days had been materially greater
than had been In general understood. Pros
pects of an Incressod supply of railway cars
tended further to lift prices. The theory
was that the annulment of orders to send
809 rsrs a week to IIneapolls would sub
stantially enlarge the number available for
shipments eaet from Chicago. ' '
Uharu erica gains In the wheat market
eontlnued until the leal half hour of the
sesalon. Then rumor that German sub
marines had ' been seen off Uuanta-
namo, Cuba, brought about something of a
reaction. Dlaturbenoes on this scoro, how
ever, were minimised by word from Wash
ington that the rumors were not confirmed
at th Navy department. Abnormally dry
weather in the soutnwest was a, luriner
handicap to th bears.
Corn derived firmness from wheat and
from the notable advance In th hog mar
ket. Reports of Improving trafflo conditions
oil th railroads counted also In favor of
bulls, Oats hardened with other grain.
Cash bouses were good buyers.
Proviaioea soared to new high record
quotations, and closed at nearly th top
