Cora Market Hags Because ef Government
Attitude on High meet. ,
Cliicsgo. Aug. 18. Notwithstanding -that
mucb iviuk-etid evening up of contracts waa
expected l-xliiv. the corn market underwent
tcmothing of a tag. Bearish sentiment
was ascribed largely to the general atll
tuila of the government toward preventing
an excessive rise In the value of any es
sential product. Besides, fine weather con
tinued and peace gossip remained to soma
desr-jj a pcrslsteni factor. Opnlng prices,
which ranged from "4 060 lower, with le-remb-.r
at H.1201.1!t and May at 11.090
1.09 n, were followed by alight rallies, which,
however, failed to last.
Fresh setbacks In cash prices led auba
(iucntly to decided weakness In futures. Tht
close was heavy and IV04lke net lower,
with December at 11.0m 01.01ft and May
at 31.060 1.06 -
Wheat trading showed no sign of life.
The market was at a standstill and It waa
satat the government prlue-ftxlng commute
w-.l Bot likely to report until September 1.
Trifling amounts changed hands at I3.0!
02.02 i for September, aa compared with
yesterday's finish of 12.01. The clots was
easy at 13.01. net advance of le.
With at record yield of oat In sight that
cereal was subjected to heavy selling pres
sure. Complaints of car scarcity wer ap
parently disregarded. European demand aa
wel', as hog acarclty In this country tendsd
t gtv fresh impetus to advances In pro
visions. The sharpest call was for ribs.

today that the composite Forty-sec-dnd

among the Twenty-sixth having repre

'A report was current today that suf

cause it comes from a compact area,

Island, under " the new European
standard, which requires that the
strength of the individual infantry
regiments be increased more than 50
per cent. The process necessitates
the addition of some units not in
cluded in the original order, for
where one company of infantry, for
instance, was to have come from any,
state, two companies have been con
solidated to give the 250 men neces
sary. Thus hundreds of men have been
transferred to fill up the regiments
selected to go. All the other National
Guard divisions will go through a
similar process on their arrival at
their divisional camp.
Time of Mobilization Not Known.
No hint has been given as to the
probable time it will require to pre
pare the Forty-second for embarka

will take some time to get into work

also enters into the fixing of a sailing

also to the Twenty-sixth. ,.
