Chicago, April 20. Grains . made
their lowest prices early, and the
highest - toward the last. Houses
with eastern connections and the
loca element were free sellers.
Shortly after the opening, corn
dropping iVit, and, oats
lic under the previous' day's close.
As soon as the pressure -ceased
prices started upward and short
covering resulted in some stop-loss
orders being caught, all deliveries of
oats and May corn selling at new
high figures on the crop, the finish
being firmwith corn lJiJc up on
the distant deliveries, while oats
gained Hc. , .
,Rye was affected by the action of
other grains and crosed unchanged
to lie lower, while barley was ljc
up at a new season's high.
Sentiment in the grain trade Is decidedly
mixed. The closest students of world's
condition, believe that ultimately finan
cial difficulties reported In Japan will
spread to other countries, and that prices
for all commodities will come down.
Change la Sentiment.
Bulk of the selling of corn early was
attributed to large eastern operators who
were believed to be taking the short side
on the unfavorable developments In Japan,
having liquidated their holdings of stocks
last week. This selling waa followed by
the pit element and there was also a
marked change In sentiment on the part
of commission houses. On the break there
was persistent buying by houses with
country connections, which absorbed the
surplus In the pit and the early sellers
had to cover. "
May corn at 11.73 not only established
a new high for the season, but advanced
to a point where it showed a fraction
above the July delivery In Liverpool. Two
cargoes of Danublan corn were offered in
the latter market at 11.76, the first quota
tion in somo years. On the other hand
Brazil was Inquiring for 10.000 tons of
American yellow corn, 16 per cent teat at
Cash demand her wasslow with the east

. Oats Close Strong.
-Selling of big line ofv September oats
by a house with eastern connections was
a feature early, -but later sensational re
ports regarding seeding conditions in the
states of largest production started shorts
to covering, and the close was at the
top at the best figures of the season. Sam
ple vales unchanged to lc lower.
Reports of a slakenlng in the export
demand for rye had a depressing effect
on that grain, and Induced considerable
profit-taking, the close swing practically
unchanged... No. 2 on track was 33s
Barley offerings were small and sold
readily at unchanged prices, sales beins
at 11.621.69. '
Foreign demand for cash wheat contin
ues very active. Cables from Argentine
reiterated recent statements that an em
bargo on exports was probable. The sea
