Cuttle Receipts were fair sized for
Wednesday and with the tendency lower
elsewhere packers were out to buy cattle
at wesker prices If they could. As was the
case on former days of the week, the heavy
steers were hardest to get action on. In
the end beeves sold pretty close to steady
as a general thing. But trade was very slow
and undertone, weak. Cows and heifers
were about steady, movement being hardly
as active us yesterday. There was a little

Oats were cent off to '4 up, with
the bulk of the sales unchanged and

The wheat was all taken over by

from nearly steady to 25c or more lower, the
greatest declines having been on good heivv

Hogs There was a fairly liberal run of
nogs today. The market was entremelv
slow. Shippers were only light buyers and
packers were bent on forcing declines. Up
to a late hour only a few hogs had changed
hands, and these went at prices that looked
all the way from 16 to 20o lower than
yesterday. The best price paid was $16.66,
while the hulk moved at $16.86 10.40.
Sheep Only a small run of sheep and
lambs arrived this morning. Sellers were
asking higher prices ail around, buyers
rerustng to take on anything at better than
steady prices. The deadlock was unbroken
at 10:30, hardly anything being sold at that
time. A couple of bunches of light lambs
Drought $16.36. The undertone was fairly
good with prospects for steady prices at
least, and possible advance over yesterday
There was a fairly good demand for feed
ers, little or nothing showing up. Bidding
was nominally steady.

Renewal of Peace Gossip offsets Hlight Gains
Chicago. Jan. 2. Renewal of peace gossip
more than offset In the corn market this
afternoon some slight gains which had been
scored during the first part of the session.
Prices closed weak, at the same as yester
day's finish to 4c lower, aJnuary $1.2684,
and May $1,244 to tl.!4S5rl.24. The out
come In oats was unchanged to io down.
There were declines of 20c to 70o in provi
sions. Until peace talk gave the bears an ad
vantage, corn averaged higher, chiefly as a
result of ab ulge, which liberal export buy
ing brought about In the oats market. At
first, however, corn had a downward slant
due to warmer weather that pointed to an
Increase of arrivals. Aside from the effect
of the strength of oats, therefore, the corn
market was in a condition to reapand readily
to selling, which after midday was based
principally on London reports giving Munich
authority for assertions that within the
next 10 days the central powers would make
a new declaration regarding peace.
Export purchasing of oats aggregated
about 700.000 bushels. It was said, though,
that the seaboard demand had now been
filled for the time being.
Holders of provisions realized. The out
look was for a bearish showing In warehouse

Cars of Coal Are Rushed
East to Relieve Plight
Washington, Jan. 2. Hundreds of
coal cars, released from yards where
they have been stalled behind .ship
ments of higher preferential ratings,
were moving over eastern roads today
to relieve the acute coal shortage in
All existing priority orders were
suspended .by Robert S. Lovett, prior
ity director of the war industries
board, on recommendation of the di
rector general, with the expectation
a freer movement of nil freight as
well as coal till result. The director
general also broke a railroad preced
dent by ordering the Pennsylvania
railroad tunnel under the Hudson
river, heretofore restricted to pas
senger traffic, to - -id to move coal
trams into New York.
Railroads Will Cut Out Most
Of Advertising During War
In the elimination of expense rail
road men are anticipating that a good
deal of the advertising is to be cut
out while the government is in con
trol of the lines. They say this must
be the logical result, since the pool
ing plan has been completed and put
in operation. Rock Island offices in
Omaha have received instructions that
until further notice no advertising will
be placed. Officers of the other lines

OF HIS CHURCH
Among the most patriotic people
in Omaha are members of Hillside
Congregational church. Their pastor,
the Rev. W. S. Hampton, is no less a
patriot, and it is mainly through his
zealous work and endeavor that the
parish has come to be known as one
whose ideal is pure Americanism.

The story of the Best family, 3309

American People Ate More
Beef in 1917 Than In 1916
American people ate 10 pounds of
beef apiece more in 1917 than they
did in 1916. This fact is revealed by
government tables now available, in
spite of the great campaign that has
been made to save meat.
The average American consumed
more than 65 pounds of beef during
the 12 months just closed. The food
administration is anxious to reduce
this per capita consumption of beef.
The food administration believe that
this reduction can now be accom
plished in the present year since the
nieatless days are welt established.
The figures show that America ex
ported to Europe 33,000,000 pounds
less of beef during 1917 than in 1916
The food administration is anxious to
reduce home consumption of beef and
increase the export of that product to
