conditions over the entire winter wheat
belt Advices are beginning to pour Jn
to. ths ntculatlvo market from the In

age of a serious nature has yet taken
Place there are many grave apprehen

Tho situation Is one having many
peculiarity as far as the speculative
market Is concerned, and foremost among
nil of them is the fact that it would not
take much of an Incentive In tho way of

wheat There is now such a tendency,
although on all of the sharp advances
considerable wheat finds its way upon
the market, which gives prices a normal
setback. Such wore tho conditions yes
terday. Tho early market was full of buying
orders, but before the final transactions
there was enough grain thrown on tne
market to cause a liberal reaction from
the best prices. Gossip on wheat ,Jasi
night was more mixed than usual, with
a good percentage of It bearish. It wan
noticeable that tho northwest continues
a liberal seller of cash wheat to come tcr

HOfJB The hog trade firmed up a little
this morning as the genera! run of sales
was steady to a nickel higher than yes
terday. As on yesterday there was very
little demand from shipping and speo'l
latlve' quarters, thus making tho trade
largely a backers' market. The Docker
buyers nere out comparatively early look,
tug for good heavy hogs and eventually
took the big bulk of the offerings at rrrleea
as noted above, the improvement being
more margeu on 1110 uesi graues. ror tne
most Dart trade on the light and highly
mixed kinds was rather slow compared f
wiiu inn tiny urn niujuriiy 01 me iinavr
offerings were disposed of. Ths general
movement was no better than fairly ac
tive and everything was not cleared until
a late hour In tho forenoon. In the end
the bulk of the sales ranged from 17 to
17.20, as compared with 37 to 17.15 on
Thursdays market There was aulte a
sprinkling of good hogs tt 37.25 and some
011 the extra choice order sold up to 37.30,
fulb a nlckM hlghfr tnan the highest
point reached yesterday.
A fairly large run showed up for a Frl
day. as the supply foots up 110 cam. or
7.fVO head A against 8.413 head a wdeK
ago, 7.090 head two weeks ago and 11.681
hrad on the same day one year ago. Gen
eral quality was very fair, thnre being

IKXSTON, Jan. 3. The Commercial IKil
letin will say of the wool market tomor
Our canvass of tho country shows that
the total supply of all kinds of wool, for
elgn and domestic, In deaJcrs' hands and
unsold on January 1. Is S3.460.3&6 pounds.
of which 66,457,818 pounds In domestic and
tne bniance, 17,002,537 pounds, foreign,
These figures show a decrease of over
31,000,000 pounds, ns compared with the
total supplies on hand In tho whole coun
try on January 1, 1912. Domestic wool,
wnion on uuu aa.it wan computed at. 108,
128.900 pounds, shows a decrease nf nearly
40,000,000 pounds, as compared with last
year, while foreign wool has shown an in
crease for the country at large of 4,617,720
The Boston Wool Trado association's
computation shows a total of 43,849.855
pounds on hand in Boston, of which do-
mestla Is 31,922,3IH pounds, or approxi
mately one-naif or that in dealers' own
ernhlp last year. Foreign wools havo
shown an Incrraseof nearly 4.000,000 pounds
being computed at 10,327,5.77 pounds.
Those figures twar out the contention
that stocks In the country at large are
phenomenally light. .This Is also true of
the stocks In growers' or dealers hands
throughout tho world. The shipments of
wool from Boston the" first two days of
the year were l,287.0i6 pounds, against
1,535,610 pounds ror tne same period last
