DECEMBER SHORTS COVER
JN LOCAL WHEAT MARKET.

!War News and Flour Parcbases
by Japan Help the Upward
Dec, shorts wero rushed to cover In
yesterday's local grain market. The price
of the option was advanced to 90c, the
highest price paid on the present crop.
Outrido of this purely manipulative ad
vance thcro 'was little encouragement for
the bulls. War talk and reports that Japan
had been a heavy purchaser of flour In
the Padflo Coast markets -were the main
features In the news,. The May option,
though strong, teas only moderately active.
Corn followed wheat on the upturn and
closed at an advance on light receipts and
fear of further adverse husking returns.

bales. The market opened at an advance of
7 points to a net decline of 1 point en coverlm
and buvtng for long account, promoted by re
ports of more or less general frrwts throuch
the central portions ef the belt. Receipts for
the day were also rather light, but the cables
were under expectations, tra notwithstanding
the reassuring tone of this morning's newspsper
reports, thsrs Is still uncertainty over the far
Eastern situation. After a little further firm
ness on the call, the market, influenced by the
latter considerations, apparently. In connection
with expectatiens for a. heavier movement next
week, eased oT to about last night's prices and
ruled rather quiet but steady around that leveL
