Cattle Receipts were pretty decent for a
Wednesday and with Chicago breaking
sharply tha laat few days and local cool
ers full of beef for which there are no
cars, packers 'Were very Indifferent bidders
on the early rounds today. A few odd sales
of medium range steers were made nearly
steady, but on the bulk of the western of
ferings aa well aa native steers and butcher
stock early bids were considerably lower.
Trains were late again today and thla was
another factor In making the trade ex
tremely draggy. Late yesterday when the
bulk of the natives came In sales Were made
largely 10025a under last week's close.
Stocker and feeder trade Is almost at a
standstill, hardly any outside buyers are
here and hulk of the supply la very alow al
decline of 25040c from last week, while
good steers sold late yesterday and early
today fully 25o lower than the latter part
of last week.

however, and prlcea later reacted under a
renewal of acattered trade selling or
liquidation. Reports that some of the cost
and freight offera received were a shade

CHICAGO GRAIN AND PROVISIONS.
Unfavorable Weather Conditions Boost Cora
Prices) Oats Finally Gain.
Chicago, Dec. 12 Unfavorable weathef
conditions made corn prices averago hlglvr
today, but there waa persistent commission
house selling on the bulges. The market
closed unsettled, January (1.21 and May
$1.19, with the final range aa a whole
varying from c off to o advance, com
pared with 24 hours before. The outcome
In oats was a gain of c to 2c. Provisions
declined 25c to 30c.
Prevalent low temperatures, snowstorms
and a new cold wave In sight rendered the
prospect adverse to any likelihood of Im
mediate substantial enlargement ot corn re
ceipts. The difficulties of efficient operation
under such circumstances and with an In
adequate car supply tended until nearly mid
day to reduce offorlnga to a minimum and
to bring about a moderate advance In
prices. During the Inst part of the session,
considerable aggressiveness developed on the
selling aide of the market, and there waa
a corresponding reaction of values. Renewed
announcements were being circulated at this
Juncture that no shipments of grain couM
be made through the embargoed territory
eastward from Chicago.
Oats ascended to new high price records
for the season. Meagarnees of receipts
acted as the chief bullish factor. Besides
export demand by way ot tho gulf cut a
Provisions sagged owing to general neglect.
