mission to retain control of the Pacific

would only tend to Increase the rates on

Condition in Market for
CHICAGO, Nov. 7. Wheat was ner
vous today, prices keeping within rather
narrow limits. Speculative trado was
comparatively light. Thcro was nn ex
cellent export call hero and at & number
of other points. Underlying sentiment
wan bullish, nffectcd by tho persistent
demand from abroad. It was asserted
that tho Italian Government has at
tempted to nil a buying order for 1,000,
000 bushels hore, at Minneapolis nnd at
Knns&t) City. Prices In tho northwest
r ruled comparatively strong. Cash sales
woro E25,O0O bushels. Futures closed 74c. to
Corn was dull In a speculative way,
but thcro was an excellent export call
and a fair business was closed. Offer
ings of old corn for prompt shipment are
far below the demand. Country sales of
now to arrivo are tho smallest cvor
known at this season, largely duo to
tho how Government grading and to tho
expectations of producers of a largo de
mand later. Cash sales were 393,000
bushels. Futures closed M to '4c. higher.
Oats kept within a narrower rango of
prices relntlvely than other grains. Tho
market closed strong. There was a re
vival in tho Eastern domestic call, and
somo significant Inquiries on foreign ac
