cars of rye.
The bulk of the corn received today con
tinued to grade No. 4 and No. 5, while a
good part of the remainder went Into the
No. 6 class and several Into the sample
grades. There were several cars of corn,
good enough for No. 3 but containing just
a trifle too much moisture which put them
Into the No. 4 grades, and these were held
for a good price, sellers asking from 2c to
Sc more than they were bid. There was a
general good demand for this cereal at fig
ures ranging from yesterday's unchanged
price to 3o over. A few cars of the No.
4 grade sold at yesterday's figures, while the

ported. Arrivals of rye were only four cars,
but none of these were sold, sellers asking
2 4c over yesterday's cash price for them.

AT PEACE EFFORT
OF DUAL EMPIRE
Socialists' Declare Laboring
Classes Are United; Politi
- cal Isolation Facing
London, Jan. 23. The peace agita
tion in Austria-Hungary is receiving a
great deal of attention in Germany.
The socialist newspaper Vorwaerts
of Berlin emphatically declare the
solidarity of the German proletariat
with Austrian labor in the peace
struggle, and maintains that events
in tnc dual monarchy must nave a
deep reaction in Germany.
"We have been walking on the edge
of a precipice 111 the last few days,
it says, and goes on to demand that
the German government resolutely
take its place by the Side of its Atis
"As the fruit fan-German prop
aganda, it continues, we are nieni-
aced not only with the wrecking of
the peace negotiations with Russia
but also with complete political iso
"This danger can be averted only
if the German government declares
itself in agreement with Foreign Min
ister Lzernin s declaration (respect
ing adherence to the principles of no
annexations ana no indemnities.;
"If the government acts otherwise
the consequence would be that while
Austria-Hungary and Russia enter
into lasting relations of friendship,
Ijermany will remain excluded there
from and we shall lose our last neigh
bor and friend."
Press Expresses Irritation.
Among newspapers of a different
complexion there are indications, of
considerable irritation toward Aus
tria, which in some cases is expressed
The Tagliche Rundschau of Berlin
declares that, owing to support from
the Austrian government, democratic
internationalism has come to the sur
face, stirring up strike after strike
and preparing for democratic peace
ot the sort i rotzky stands for.
It also speaks of a fresh crisis aris
ing in Germany through the action
ot the Oerman social democracy.
Cannot Ask Unconditional Peace,
The Frankfurter Zeitung expresses
much concern at the neace agitation
in Austria, remarking that Germany
cannot be asked to agree to an un
conditional peace after such a war as
this, nor can Austria.
It complains that the Austrian gov
ernment might do more than it is do
mg to make it clear that it is not fn
the special interests of Germany that
the two nations are standing together
in the peace negotiations.
The Zeitung conjectures that the
strikes in Austria are attributable to
Count Czernin's "stage management."
Other German newspapers express
strong dissatisfaction at the attitude
of Count Lzernin.
Hold Peace Demonstrations,
A reoart from Amsterdam savs that
14 meetings, having the character of

Chancellor von Hertline'a Drnm.
