Chicago Nov 27 November corn
touched 50 cents yesterday It made
an advance of 5 cents for the day of
10 cents a bushel for the week and of
ulniost 15 cents within four weeks
young Mr Phillips sold what corn
changed hands at that point shorts
did the buying that advanced the mar
ket to the 50 cent quotation The 5
1 cent advance over the close of last
week made the day the notable one
so far for the campaign A roar and

toward the already overcrowded corn
pit from all over the lloor The tip
top figure was made In the first hour
November starting at 40 cents selling
between 40 and 50 cents and closing
at 40 cents The slight linnl reces
sion was like the others which have
been experienced brought about by
selling by the bull leader
The man with the corner in tho hol
low of his hand Is apparently not
ready to let it get away from him He
hns watched the speculative careers
of other men with corners and believes
that most of them lost because of
their greed to extort the last penny
All morning the little corn king stood
on the edge of the pit and watched
the ebb and flow of the battle When
ever the clamorous short howled up
tho price In the face of unresponsive
takers he pushed to the front of the
line and let out more corn
Some of the dealers thought the ju
venile looking speculator was in straits
and was running to wind up his string
They jumped on the market nnd tried
to sell corn at 47 Phillips turned In
stantly from seller to buyer from bear
to bull and snapped up every man who
was offering to shade the price that
he was making The decline stopped
nt once Phillips showed to the corn
pit that he was its master that he
could regulate It nt will
The receipts for yesterday Including
Sunday were more than 000 cars Not
more than 10 per cent graded No 2
Compared to the requirements for set
tling day this was not a drop in the
bucket Advices from the corn belt
are that corn Is damp nnd uuder
grade Very little of the new crop
has been taken from the husk The
rains of the past two weeks have
stopped outdoor operations
The excited market was the unmis
takable admission of the corn trade
that Phillips has a cinch on his cor
ner Some of the other brokers who
tried to nurt c a little corner in Novem
ber corn last summer and who got
tired about the time they hud worked
the bulk of the contract corn off the
market and left a smooth path for their
successor envy the llttlo fellow but
they nre not throwing anything lu his
path
Phillips conduct yesterday won him
great praise Few men have been able
to keep u cool head under like circum
stances He parted with 1100000 bush
els about one tenth of his holdings
He bought 100000 when the bears tried
to drag him off his pedestal He made
30000 Apparently he Is going to
keep the settling prices around 50
cents If the shorts nro meditntiug a
coup on the last day they may wake up
to Hml that Phillips has closed out his
Hue He claims now that ho cannot
be squeezed whatever may happen
As long us he keeps on selling more
than he buys nnd holds tho market
down to 50 cents he is seemingly too
nimble to be crowded off the market with
