Chicago Grain and Provision.
Chicago. March 6 Aggressive specula
tive buying due largely to assertions that
commercial values of corn were much be
low the feeding worth led to a decided
advance In the eorn market today, but
most of the gain disappeared under profit
taking. The close was unsettled 4c net
lower to c up, with May $1.294 to
$1.29, and July $1.24 to $1.24. Oats
finished c to 40 higher, and provisions
down 2a to 20c.
Many big houses became active on the
buying of corn and there was a scarcity
of offerings until figures had been touch
ed over-topnlng any since the middle of
January. The heavy snow fall east of the
Mississippi, it was said, would tend to
curtail the movement from the farms and
to Increase feeding. As the visible sup
ply showed a total of only about one
quarter the average amount for this sea
son of the year and as farm reserves were
generally believed to be light, attention
focussed a good deal on reports of de
creased corn acreage and on tre large
number of hogs still In the hands of grow
ers. In the last part of the day, however,
many longs yielded to the tempt'stlon to
realize on their holdings, and there were
signs also that the new advance had led
to freer country selling.
Oats merely followed corn.
Packers selling more than offset In the
provision market the strength of grain

Now York, March 6. The protracted
advance in the stock market cams to an
abrupt halt today, further offerings of
railway shares soon extending to various
speculative issues, causing general Irregu
larity. Failure of congress to provide funds for
maintaining the railroads was viewed as
leaving the country's transportation sys
tem in an embarrassing position, but the
opinion prevailed that emergency require
ments of roads with established credit
would be met by private banking ac
commodations. This view was supported by Director
General Hines, who Issued a statement
emphasizing the gravity of latest condi
tions, hut dismissing reports of the early
intention of the administration to retore
the properties to private ownership.
Losses among rails ranged from 1 to 3
points, injeatment Issues meeting with
support at concessions. In the group com
prising motors and their accessories the
setback was moro extensive, although
Kelly Springfield tire was again absorbed,
repeating Its recent maximum.
oils, leathers and shippings contributed
largely to the advances of the early and
mid-st-ssions, also tobaccos, sugars and
fertilizers. Some of these grains were
largely forfeited, towards the close, where
they were not entirely cancelled, free sell
ing of United States Steel contributing
to the heavy close.
Call money was abruptly offered at
prevailing rates and easier conditions
ruled In the dull market for time funds.
Interior banka reported Increased buying
of commercial paper.

M. E. Smith & Co. Entertain
Merchants at Style Show
More than 500 merchants, their
wives and friends, attended the
spring style review given by M. E.
Smith and company, Wednesday
morning. The event was one of the
features of the spring market week.
The latest styles in ready-to-wear
garments of all kinds were shown on
living models, including not only
those made by the company in 'ts
own factories, but some more ela
borate gowns and wraps shown by
courtesy of T. L. Brandeis &
Sons. Thomas Kilpatrick & Co., and
the Burgess-Nash company."
A feature never before attempted,
was a showing- of dresses and
skirts, made in the M. E. Smith &
Co. factories from the spring
silks and dress goods, thus giving
the visiting merchants an idea how
piece goods they had bought for
spring trade might be made up by
their own customers.
Following the style review, a tur
key luncheon was served.

" For many years William Berg
lived in Omaha and was a wagon
maker. Not long prior to his death,
which occurred four or five years
ago, he organized the William Berg
company and engaged in the build
ing of wagons and carriages. Upon
his death the company went out of
business and later the organizers
and promoters of a potash company
bought the William Berg corporate
name and at once attached it to
the potash company that was the
owner of some lakes in Cherry
Now the name, a name that stock-,
holders contend has been a hoodoo,
is to be dropped and one that will
have to do with potash production
will be selected.
While the new officers of the pot

lined their plans, they assert that
enough money has been saved out
of the old organization so that they
can go on with their work. They
assert that new and additional cap

liquidated and the company placed
upon a sound financial basis.
