,".. tne sentiment on wheat may be
called bearish, the men who are arrayed
on the bear aide of the market are slow
to put out big short lines around tho
present price level, but are satisfied to
make all commitments and to even tip
their position fiom day to day. While
the recent snow and rain throughout the
southwestern country has been a great
help to the growing plant and Is consid
ered a tall feather in the cap ot the
bears, the conditions aro at least par
tially offset by the Improved cash trade
In wheat on export account and a better

milling account. The wheat markets that
were open In tho United States yesterday
and tho Winnipeg market as well showed
but little changes and the trado was

A message from Minneapolis reported
the volume of business there as small,
with the pit crowd taking a little May

lng up of this grain ti.e trade looks for
a dull and narrow markri It was the
belief among wheat traders yesterday
that the market Is not likely to do much
until the figures on farm reserves are
given out March 10. There Is nothing but
the export business, that drifts from day
to day, to trade on at present, ns the bull
edgo has been taken off tho drv western
scare by recent snows and rains. Chi
cago traders as a rule ore doing llttlo
In the market, nnd while many are bull
ish, they arc satisfied with small profits.
Cash wheat Ho to ?ic higher.
Tho corn markets In tho old world were
about neglected yesterday because ot a
holiday In Chicago.
It Is believed by the more conservator
men In the corn trade that the largo hoM
err In the Mav option am more than
likely to be forced out of their position
because of liberal receipts at Chicago,
coupled with tho increase In stocks ni.d
the fact that Argentina Is still In he
market with a fair-sized quantity of old
corn. The bears believe that the farm
reserves of corn, as well as oats, will
prove quite heavy In the March inp-j.'t
Issued by the government. Some of the
moro conservative .houses In the trade
are advising customers to use cautlin In
taking on a line of corn, with the ex
pectation of securing a- profit out of It.
Cash corn. Mo higher, ,
Now that the Fnlted States Is practi
cally out ot export business In oats, be
cause of liberal offerings by Argentina
and the free supply In Canada, this mar
ket will be forced to depend wholly on n.
domestic basU to take care of It. Lash

corn, 17,000 bushels of oats and wheat and
flour equal to 946,000 bushels.

Corn 'Inlshea at a net advance of Q

Firm cables gave wheat an upward ten

estimates were reduced 15,000,000 bu. be

Prlmarv receipts of wheat for two days
were 1.5i7.aiO bu., against 791,000 a year

equal to I'tbOOO bu.
Aggresslvo support by leading bulls

8HEKP There was a further declin
of fully 10015c this morning In lambs and
In spots more than that. The tone to th
trade was decidedly bearish from start trj
finish as sollers In many cases had dif
ficulty In getting buyers to even look at
their offerings. The total receipts wer
large and lambs made up the big end of.
the supply. The depressing news from
most outside points did not improve mat
tcrs any and It was well along towards
mid-day before the majority of the. hold
ings was disposed of. During tho ppenlns
rounds lambs on the Mexican order"
brought $8.35 and a hunch of short! lambs
changed hands at $7.35. Quito a. sprink
ling of feeder Iambs were among the
and a bunch of a fairly good kind of
and n. bunch of n fairly good "king of
handy-weights going to a feeder buyer1
The market for aged sheep also acted
a trifle slow, but remained pretty closely
to a steady basis. The demand was only
fair compared with yesterday, and It
was not until lato In the forenoon be far
a olearanee was effected. Fed westers
owes of choice quality old up to $0.10,
while the bulk of the fair to good offer
Ings went to tho packers at a range of:
$5.8608.00. A shipment of Jearllngs and
Wethers was disposed of at $6.60.
A liberal run showed up for a Wedncs
day, some sixty-three cars, or 16,000 head,
being yarded. This is about twice at
largo as n week ago nnd around 4.7TA
head more than wero hero two weeks
ago. For tho first threo days of tho
week the receipts foot up In the neigh
borhood of 40,600 head, as against 33,50)
during tiro same tlmn last week and 26,309
for the same three days one year ago.
