common, however, and buyers tnok their
lime about filling orders with the result :
that hardly any sabs were mad" .luring the
early part of the morning. Percentage of

i united demand f..r good duality f coders
on the earlier rounds, anil a few sales were
made nt prices that were weak to a little
lower than the low time last week.

New York, Dec. 17. There was renewal
of English buying In the market for coffee
futures here today. The demand was not
active, hut it was supposed to reflect a
r-'latively cheap market here compnred with
Hrail and possibly an increased use of cof
fee in England, owing to a scarcity of tea.
These features combined with the continued
steadiness of the cost and freight situation
seemed to hold sellers In check and after
opening unchanged to 6 points higher the
market made a generally steady showing.
May sold at 7.38c and September at 7.78c,
closing at a new advance of 2 to I points on
the general list. December, 7.05c: January,

4.KAIX AM PROVISIONS.
Weather and larger ('onHlgnmentH
Ilnvft llenrlsh K.ffert on Corn,
Chicago. Ills., Dec, 17 Mild weather sc.
companied by rural notices of larger con
signments had a bearish effect today on
corn. The t lose was unsettled hut to K
net lower will) January 1 1 . 20 to $1 21
and May 111 lk7i- oats also lost to .
Provisions scored an advaiu e of 25e to 70e.
Growing likelihood that the near future
w-ould witness a substantial accumulation
of stocl.s dominated the corn market
throughout thu day. Arrivals over Sunday
were liberal, and complalutH of car scarcity
had noticeably diminished. Besides. the
oaullly of receipts shewed steady Improve
ment, ihe embargo on shipments eastward
from Chicago remained uumodifii d, and the
visible supply total went up to a fair ex
tent. L'nder such circumstances declines
set in from the outset, no Important rally
took place and what demand there was
camn almost entirely from local indus
tries. Oats, like corn, eased down as a result
chiefly of betler operating conditions f..r
the railroads. Shutting off of export In
quiry, however, had an evident further de
pressing Influence. Leading commission
houses were conspicuous on Ihe selling side.
Higher quotations on hogs gave strength
to provisions. The fact, though, that ex
ports for the week were much smnller than
last year tended somewhat to i heck the
upward course of the market.
