Cattle There was a real liberal run of
cattle here' for a Friday, receipts amount
ing to about 3,800 head, and packers took
advantage of the oversuprly to further de.
press values. Sales ranged anywhere from
barely steady to 1016o lower than yester
da;tf with the weighty cattle showing the
most declines. ' Even the light and medium
steers, which have held up best all week,
are a little lower than a week ago, while
the higherprlced kinds, that is, steers, f.-om
irom sii.To up, are sse to tog down for
the week. Good to choice cows were about
steady again today, but medium grades and
canners and cutters showed further weak
ntas, and all but the good kinds are 1626o
lower in the last two days, having more
than lost the advance made early In the
week, Feeders heid steady today at (he
week's advance of 25o or mere.

CHICAGO OBADT AND PROVISIONS.
Fresh Strength In Corn Owing to Scantiness
Chicago, Jan, 4. Fresh strength developed
In the eorn market today owing largely te
scantiness of receipts. The market closed
firm. e to o net higher at $l.t7 tor
January and $1.25 1.26 tor May. Oata
finished unohanged to O0 up, and provi
sions unchanged to a decline of 12 Ho.
Almost, from ths outset, corn prices dis
played a tendency to advance. Notwith
standing that traffio conditions on the rail
roads were said to have Improved to soms
extent, the fact remained that no substantial
Increase of arrivals here had yet taken
place, and otferlnga were not large, On the
other hand big quantities of soft eorn ap
peared to be still awaiting disposal on the
part of rural holders, and there were pre
dictions current that supplies available here
next week would be more liberal, enpeclally
If temperatures were favorable for railroad
operations. Advances kept the referee
within moderate limits.
Oats climbed to the highest point yet this
season and finished at the topmost level
reached. Demand from the shorts was per
sistent and receipts were meager. The readi
ness, with which the market responded to
buying discouraged the bears. v . -
Despite higher prices In the hog market,
upturns In provisions were more than wiped

for coffee futures showed Increasing strength
and activity today. An opening advance of
6 toil points met considerable profit-taking
and there ay also have been aomu scattering
trade selling on a theory that the reported
government arrangements tor the use of
neutral tonnage would help Importations.

setbacks, however, and the market soon
firmed up on continued buying by brokers,
with Wall atreet and European connections.
March sold up to 8.41c and September 8.91c,
with the market closing at a net advance
of 14 to It points. Very few fresh offers

WITHHOLD DETAILS v
-OF ANTILLES INQUIRY
Daniels and Baker Both Re
fuse to Comment on Re-
moval of Officers From !
Important Posts. , f
i Washington, Jan. 4,i-Secretary
Daniels declined today to disclose any ,
information regarding the inquiry into
the lots of the American army, trans t,
port Antilles, recently torpedoed with'
considerable loss of life, , ,'.
Only meager details of the loss have
been made public. Admiral Benson
yesterday told the house naval com
mittee it was due in part to convoy ar
It ia known, however, that follow
irig'an investigation, Rear Admiral
William D. Fletcher, formerly, in
Charge of the American convoying
forces in French waters, was recalled
tn the United States. There appears, .
however, to be some question here a,!
to the number of war vessels furnish
ed to him for convoy by Vice Admiral
Sitns. There is no available official .
record to show that the recall of Ad
miral Fletcher was connected with the
disaster. ; "' - v
Secretary Baker, in the War depart
ment, apparently takes the same posi
tion a .does Secretary Daniels jn re
gard to removal of officers from im
portant posts.- He has made no ex
planation as yet of the recall of Majof
General Sibert, commanding the flirst
division of American troops sent to
Prance, and has v requested that no
speculation as to the reason behind
the recall of high oflicers.be indulged
in. So far as known, however, th
only purpose of the request is to pro
tect the feelings of the individual of
ficer and not the concealment of mili
tary information that might be of
value to the enemy (! ;
