CHICAGO GRArV AND PROVISIONS.
Prices AdTanoe Owing to Skepticism Regard -.
. . ' Ing An Earljr Pence.
Chicago, Jan. 9. Grain advanced In price
today, owing more or less to skepticism re
garding an early peace. Corn' closed firm,
ty4ic to He net higher, with January,
$1.27 and May fl.26Vs. Oats gained c
to 1C and provisions 15c to 27c.)
Feeling that peace was more distant than
had been hastily assumed yesterday by ultra
bearish traders gav the corn market an
upward slant from the beginning. Through
out the day, also, renewed talk of a -possible
lifting of the maximum price limit on
future deliveries tended to strengthen val
ues. Much attention, too, was bestowed on
the continued meagreness-of receipt, for
which snowdrifts on railroads and country
highways were chiefly, held responsible. In
this connection, forecasts ot more snow and
of severe cold seemed far from reassuring.
Oats rallied more sharply than corn, as
declines in oats yesterday on account of
peace selling had been greater than was
the ease ot the corn market. Besides, It
was said, a week of favorable weather
would be required to bring transportation
back to- normal. ,
Scantiness of hog supplies here made pro
visions k ascend. Selling by packers failed
as an offset, possibly because- the output ol
western- packing houses last week fell much
under the t tal of a year ago.

NEW YORK STOCKS
Gains Are Recorded in First
Half of Market; Partly Re
linquished in Later Operations.
New Tork. Jan. 9. Leaders rose 1 to 2
points and various Kpecialtlrs as much as
3 to 10 points In the first half of today's
restricted stock market, but part of this
gain was relinquished In the irregular
course of the later operations.
Trading owed much of Its initiative to
professional Interests, public Inquiry dwin
dling, probably because ot the conflicting
views entertained regarding the Immediate
effect of the president's message to con
gress S esterday. ,
Vinanclers in close contact wHh tendon
and Paris expressed the belief that the
next move nniKt come from the central
powers, but the tereir of the day's Kuropean
advices and the Inert foreign exchange
market conveyed no Intimations from that
Hrokiirs representing the bull account
were Inclined towards the steel shares, oils
and affiliated issues, so far as (hey favored
any espeolal division of the list, but the
movement In these stocks probably doubt
less resulted . mainly from the existence of
Ji vulnerable short Interest.
The trend of United States Steel, ..which
absorbed more than Its quota of the day's
moderate total, was typical of the general
movement, that stock forfeiting about half
its two point gain at 94 (,c.
The final hour was enlivened by 1 to 3
point gains in fertilizers and some of the
utilities, notably American Telephone, ship
pings also . rallying. Sales amounted to

ing heaviness. Liberty 3Vs sold at 98.73

Sells Bee In Winter
C. W. Andrews, better known as
"Legless" Andrews, is selling The
Bee now at Sixteenth and Harney
streets. "Legless" is a "smut sack
rider" in the summer time. In other
words, he makes balloon ascen
sions. It was in this work that he
lost his legs in 1911. It was at
Telahoma, Tenn. An accident oc
curred while he was making a para
chute drop from a height of 3,000,
feet.' Both legs were broken in a
number l places and he suffered
other injuries. The legs were am
putated and he is as well as ever
except for the loss of h'.t legs.
His "smut tack" is stored in
Kansas City now and he will sell
The Bee until spring. Then, with
his brother, he intends to go back
FLOUR ORDERS BACK
Product is Darker Now, By
Order of Food Administra
tor; white Flour is
Thing of Past.
Housewives Sft sending back flour
which they bought recently because
it is darker than that they have been
accustomed to. They learn, however,
upon returning the flour to their gro
cer that flour is being made darker
now by order of the food administra
tion. Millers, by the new rules have been
ordered to make more flour out of a
bushel of wheat than they ever made
before. That means that they are to
grind into the flour a greater per
centage of the bran. That makes the
flour darker. ,
"In fact after the present supply of
old flour is exhausted," said State
Food Administrator Wattles, "there
will be nothing but this darker flour,
for all flour made henceforth will be
made under this new rule which re
quires that a greater percentage of
the wheat go into the flour.
"Strangely enough," continued Mr.
Wattles, "this will not, reduce the
price of the flour as one would at first
suppose. The reason for Jhis is that
the food administration has fixed the
price of shorts, bran and other coarse
feeds for hogs so low in order to en
courage the growing of hogs and
other meat producing animals , as to
seriously cut the profit to the millers
in this coarse feed business."
Rummage Sale for Omaha
City Mission to Be Held Soon
Flans for a rummage sale and auc

men of the; World building. The sale
will be in progress from January 21
Those having this sale in charge
do not wish to appear as opposing

were so far advanced when other an
nouncements were made that it was
impossible to avoid confliction.
"Everybody is helping to get the
kaiser, but somebody must heir the
unfortunates at home," said officers
of the mission, "and we need all of
the help we can get."
Anything that you cannot use will
be accepted by the mission for this
sale. Old clothing, shoes, dishes,"
fruit's, vegetables,, poultry and live
stock will be ..especially .acceptable.

CORNISH SAYS ALL
WORK TO WIN WAR
Former Omaha Man Gives His
Views on the War Situa
tion as it Now
K. J. Cornish, president of the Na
tional Lead company, New York, for
merly a resident of Omaha, is visit
ing relatives here for a day.
He ohserves that -Americans are di
verting all of their activities in the di
rection of winning the war. He ex
pressed himself as follows in connec
tion with the war situation:
"The war is absorbing the nation's
energies both in the east and the west,
l'.ven polities has ceased to divide our
people and all rejoice in a president
capable of expressing so forcibly and
truly American ideals and purposes.
The, Declaration of Independence is
again found to express the spirit of
our institutions and command the al
legiance of the nation.
"We now see that the real issue
of this war is modern industrialism
against ' individual militarism the
brotherhood of man, with its in
dividual initiative and responsibility,
against the idea of obedient and disci
plined masses under the control of a
Jove-descended, 'God's-atiointed,' or
"The end of this war must be the
abolition of all war by establishing
reason instead of force as the final
arbiter of international disputes, An
international tribunal supported by in
ternational armies would be a menace
to peace and freedom unless there is
a just international law recognized and
supported by all peoples.
"Therefore, this war would fail in its
divine purpose unless it establishes in
the conscience of all peoples the prin
ciple that 'governments derive their
just powers from the consent of the
governed.' So considered, this is pre
eminently our war and, as its hidden
divine purposes are being' revealed
from day to day, the American people
regardless of ancestry are showing
greater and greater willingness to
sacrifice their lives and fortunes for
the preservation of democracy and
overthrow of militarism."
Government Man Talks
On Poultry Raising
A. G. Peters of the United States
Department of Agriculture spoke
Tuesday night at the Young Men's
Christian association on "Why the
Government Wants io Increase Poul
try Production." He pointed out the
necessity of extensive poultry raising

Rail Officials Differ
On Solicitor Question
Whether or not, under theNnter
pretation of the order of Director
General McAdoo, railroads have a
right to solicit freight and passenger
business is still an open and debat
able question. The Union Pacific of
ficials say they have such right, and,
taking that horn of the dilemma, have
sent their solictors back into the field.
Heads of the roads that have not
sent their men back into the field
say that there is no question about
what was meant when the order to
cease soliciting business was received.
They contend that to ask for business
now would be a direct violation of
the order and would subject the of
ficials of the roads and also the so
licitors to all the fines that are' pro-;
vided for. tV
