oars and barley receipts, three ears.
Activity In the corn market today was
unusually slow, practically no sales being
made during the- forenoon and only a few
samples disposed of by noon. The local de
mand was rather dull due partly to tho
failure of an Increase In eastern shipments
following the lifting of the .latest Imposed
embargo on corn and oats. The car condi
tion has Improved materially during the
last day or so and the outlook Is tor In
creased shipments as long as the mild
weather continues. Railroads are giving
preference to corn in almost every Instance,

hard to get ears in which to ship their
oats. No. 4 white sold at 1 4 5 4f 1 . -1 7 and

months, amounting to 29,400 head.

REVIEWS OF THE WEEK-
New York. Dee. 23. The market for se
curl ties was again governed by the trend
of foreign and domeatlo war Incidents. For
the most part these received unfavorable
Interpretation, aa wss evidenced by the
large number of new low records registered
by stocks and bonds.
Belief that this country Is to share ta a
greater extent In burdens and responsibilities
of the forelga conflict, delay In the settle
ment of the railroad situation, and Indica
tions of further trsde restrictions, ac
celerated the setback from which slight ral
lies were made towards the end of the week
The most obvious feature of the stork
market is its purely nomtnsl and technical
character. Deaplte the safeguards Imposed,
short selling continued to exert more than
Industrials owed much of kholr reversal1 to
the coal famine which seriously affected
some of the more Important plants produc
ing steel. Iron ami kindred products.
Kails were again handicapped, not Only
by the situation at Washington, but more
particularly by Indications that dividend
disbursements sre In line for downward re
vision. Money held at recent firm rates for
call loans, with Increased scrutiny of col
lateral, time funds again being In scant
supply. Virtually no money Is obtainable,
except lor the shorter terms. This condl
tlon la expected to prevail until well Into
the coming year.
t.raln and Provisions,
Chicago, Dec. 22. Skyward , bounds In
values 'and accompanying removal or rail
road embargoes eaat of Chicago have maiLc
an exciting week In the corn market, hut
extreme top quotations could not be held.
Net gains for the week were 20 to 3 He.
Oats advanced l'o to 2V.c, and provision
6 it- to 31.69.
The .biggest single leap by ths corn
market was In the May delivery, which at
one time showed an almost vert tele rise
of 6c a bushel. At the ame lime. Im
mediately following the announcement that
tho embargo had been cancelled, the De
cember aad January options ascended to
within Ke of the highest level petslble
under existing ruhs.
Uosslp wua current that the maximum
price limit en future dollverlta would be
raised, but dentals were promptly forthcom
ing, and the snlur of bulla then began to
subside. A further reuse of reaction was
the fiict that lifting of tho embargo ap
parently failed altogether to stimulate
shipping demand. ,
Oats sonred wit., corn, but to a less sen
sational degree. Holder of oats displayed
greater readiness to realise profits.
Upturns In the provision market were uz
crlbed in large m wsure to curtailment of
the hog supply a rklng renters. Prev
lously, arrivals of hogs had been excessive
'for Immediate requirements.

with the market closing at a net. advance
of 10 to 13 points. No fresh new feature
