Chicago, Oct. I.?[Special]?The
wheat trading was good on speculative
account, and the feeling developed some?
what unsettled. Prices again averaged
higher but advance not sustained. Course
of market yesterday influenced many
traders to change to long side and most
of local crowd was bullish, as the ad?
vance did not meet with any particular
opposition, but was rather helped along
by a majority of traders. The early ad?
vance was accomplished without any
special effort, but there were rather free
offerings at top prices, parties who
bought the past day or two feeling in?
clined to accept their;profits. Cables
were a little stronger and some bullish
news came to hand from northwest.
Opening was about the same to \ higher
than yesterday's closing, steadily ad?
vanced %, then eased off 1 c?nt for De?
cember and 1 for May, fluctuated some
and closed about % lower for December
and % lower for May than yesterday.
Corn was fairly active and easier, a
lower range being established on all fu?
tures. Decline was due almost, entirely
to free offerings of a heavy local spoe"u
lator, who sold in the neighborhood of
half u million bushels through brokers,
which had a very depressing eifert on
