"Slowness continues .the' chief characteristic

if anything. Finished lines continue dull.

"T"be iron and steel trade Is still confronted
with a consumption of only half ' the producing
capacity, and the dry goods \u25a0. business with the
problem of costs, but there Is an' absence of de
moralization, speculation and = overstocked . shelves
in all mercantile lines, while the general feel
ing of | conservative I commerce makes conditions
better than trade statistics : indicate.

CHICAGO BOARD OF TRADES
Future Grain and Provisions
CHICAGO. Dec. 30.-~- Wheat today made a
marked advance above yesterday's close. Because
of profit • taking, however, and predictions of
heavy world's shipments the latest sales were
at a net decline of %@%c. Compared with last
night corn; finished l%c up to %c off. oats un
changed -to !\u25a0«,<* \u25a0 down and provisions a shade
easier to 10c added cost. •-,
The temporary gain in wheat grew largely
from assertions that the government bad over
estimated . the spring crop of three northwestern
states. A well^nown expert figured the yield
for the district at 150,000.000 bushels, against
177,000.000 .bushels as sent out officially from.
Washington. , Generous shipments by Australia.
India and Argentina gave .the market an easy
start, but -leading longs bought openly and forced
prices to a point at which many commission
bouses had selling . orders. Professional specu
lators -who had observed this situation grabbed
profits and overloaded the market. Simultaneous- ;
ly word came. that world shipments wpold prob
ably, reach 11.000.000 bushels,, whereas the total a
year ago \u25a0 was 8.720.000 bushels. The close was
easy at almost rthe bottom for the day. Fluctua
tions tn the May option were between 96% c and
97%@97%c, with final transfers at 963JC. a net
loss of .%c. , -
The corn market during late dealings was easy
at* a: substantial .backset from an earlier • bulge.
May ranged from 48% cto 48"*6@49c, and at the
end of the day was 4S%("~*:4S%c, a net gain of a
shade. Cash corn closed firm, with No. 2 yellow
at 46%@46%c.
•Oats followed other grain, but in a dull, nar
row fashion. Ma.7 kept inside 34@34%c. and fin
