TRENTON, N. J., Jan. 14. Governor
Wilson, for whom the majority of the
states in the union today officially cast
their electoral votes for tho presidency,
proclaimed in a speech to tho New Jer
sey" presidential electors that he Inter
preted his election as the distinct ex
pression of tho progressive impulses of
"I. shall not bo acting as a partisan,
when I pick out progressives, And only
progressives, to aid mc," tho governor
said in analyring the spirit that he said
had been produced by his election.
Tho governor predicted no division In
the counsels ot tho democratic party,
but foresaw solidarity. "Those demo
crats," ho said, "who hitherto havo been
slow to align themselves with tho pro-
resslvo banner of the party aro every
where yielding. Tho business men of the
country, .too, are swinging around to an
unselfish 'and broader view of their
duties to tho people."
Tho speech was delivered at a luncheon
given for the electors by tho democratic
state committee Just before tho official
ballot was cast. It was the last Mr.

OMAHA, Jan. 14, 19li
Traders havo claimed for some tlmo
that the holders of May wheat In tho
Chicago market are among tho strongest
concerns in tho grain world. Their
holdings nre variously estimated from
10,000,000 to 15,000,000 bushels and In addi
tion to this big accumulation of May
wheat they also control the cash article,
not only nt Chicago, but some of the
other markets of the country as well.

they arer holders of any great amount of
wheat In the northwest or not traders
are unable to say, but a few conservative
men In the trade at Chisago believe that
they also own wheat at Minneapolis nnd
Duluth, but that this fact will be fully
demonstrated later on. It will be remem
bered that the present holders of wheat
havo been on the bull side of tho market
ror many months and that they have
seen values decline In a most serious
manner-to them. Tho outlook at the
present, however, is for a reaction and

CHICAGO, Jan. 14. It was a day (t
profit taking In the cereal pits. Volume
ot business was moderate, and prices
changed but little. Provisions advanced.
Longs who sought to realize profits un
loaded cautiously, nursing the market
tenderly on dips. In this they wero as
sisted by a professional bull clement
which seemed to bo attempting to bring
about a strong market. The range of
prices was only He and the close was a
compromise between the extremes. For
eign markets were generally higher and
there, was a good cash demand here and
at outside points.
In corn, as In wheat, there was plenty
of evldenco that longs were taking prof
its and fhorts their medicine, thus ad
justing differences brought about by tho
recent advance, ready for now specula
tion. It was a fluttery market, but the
net crsult was a slight recession In prices
There was little demand for export, but
It was observed that the best buying
of spot was done by a firm which re
cently has sold heavily to the foreign
Thero was a fair shipping call for oats,
but profit taking depressed prices. Ar
gentina reported heavy export sales.
Provisions were firm with hogs and
the volume of business fairly large. Tho
principal buying was said to be for an
Important packer, operating under cover.

CATTLE Cattlo receipts were liberal
again today, being about tho same size
11s yostcrduy. For tho two days 11,148
head were reported In, being about the
same an last week and week before., but
larger than a year ago by almost 2,000
The market on beet steers oponcd very
slow and weak. As was tho case yester
day advices from eastern points wero not
encouraging and buycrx weru very much
inclined to hold off und awult later ad
vlcos beforo doing very much business.
In the end heavy steers, sold ut least 103
16o lower and fully 26c lower than last
weolc. It Is, In fact, hard to realize Just
how dull and unsatisfactory tho heavy
steer market Is. On the other hand the
light and handy-wclght cattlo of good
quality moved mora freely and prices
wore steady or very nearly steady to
possibly a llttlo lower.
Puckers were bearish on cows and
heifers and generally starred out bidding
lower prices. However, tho demand on
the part ot speculators and outside buy
ers wus so good that it wuh not possible
to bear the market very much. In tho
end the bulk ot tho cows and heifers sold
at prices that wero steady to possibly a
little easier In some spots.
Tho demand for stock cattlo and feed
ers continues very brisk nnd In tha face
ot light receipts tho market was strong,
everything In the way of feodern changing
hands in good season In the morning.

11OOS A change for the better took
pllice In hogs, resulting in un upward
trend In values. Though the rccelpts'were
liuerui coiupareu with last Tuesuay ann
two weeks ago tho (tcmntid was broad
enough to warrant n higher range of
prices, tho gonerul trndo uelng n. nickel
Higher than tho Kcnerul run ot salea yes
teiitay. llusluess, however, was more or
ICss uneven, and If anything tho range ot
prices for the hull; ot tlvo ottcrlngs was a
little wider t lui 1 1 on the previous day.
As usual of Into the majority ot tho hogj
went Into tho packers' hands 'at hirgeiy
around $7 Cuff i. 20, ns ugalnst $6.ydtf7.,10 on
.Monday, ino most nuvanco was on in J
light grndus. us a good many of thai,
kind showed an Imnrovrmcnt of ftftlOc.
und In sputA more tnuii that. On the othir
hand hogs 011 tho heavy packing oruer
may bo regarded xs strong to nickel
higher, the most ot them unnglng prices
around $Mi7.2o. While the general
movement was not anv better tnau fairly
active, thero was a hot spot In tno trade
when hogs moved auita tree y. put bum-
liens slowed down again to Its former con
dition. Most of tha holdings wero oleared
111 a very satisfactory way.
Whllo thu supply was a little larger
than 11 werK ngo and considerably larger
than two weeks ugo, there were not nearly
so many nogM on xnie ns on tne samo nay
a .viur ugo. More light hugs wero in ovi
dunce than on the day before, and as
they snoweu me most improvement tne
general situation lu tho hog trade la bet
ter than It looks on paper.

SHEEP Only a moderate supply
lambs and sheep were on hand today
there being about S6 cars, or 7,600 head,
reported In. This Is around 2.970 head
short of lust Tuesday and 1,937 less ian
two weeks ago. Compared with the cor
rcHpondlng duy ono year ago the receipts
fell short by 6,444 head. Tho general
quality ot the offerings was below the
standard of yesterday and not nearly so
good as during the closing days ot last
week, consequently tho buyers proceeded
stimowliut slowly, picking out tho most
dcslrubla killers nrs:. duch lambs and
bIiocp sold gonerully anywhere from
Btcudy to a dime higher, but any offer
ings only halt finished or weighty sold
more or less at a disadvantage. While
the packers apparently had a pretty fair
demand for good killers, trade at the
best time could bo described as no- better
thuu fairly active. Ah very few offerings
of good quality were among the first ar
rivals business was a little slow in get
ting started, fho packers apparently watt
ing to see the late arrivals.
Included In the early trade were some
fall shorn lambs that sold at $3.35, and
some Mexican yearlings which Drought
us much as $3.16. A three-car string ut
Improved Mexican yearlings changed
hands ut $8. A bunch of fed owen brought
$6.10, and some fed wethers sold at $5.16,
tho sumo kinds of wethers that com
manded $3.66 yesterday. Though trade
seemed to bo devoid ot much life a fair
clearunco was effected In satisfactory
