CHICAGO, Dec. 19.—1n the narrow range of
pries today is llluatrted the character of the
wheat market. It was of a holiday character
In the main. Leading longs evidently hail
supporting orders In all day, but there was
not a meat deal of selling pressure. Shorts
also took prolltß on the weak spots, thus help-
Ing still further to support thq market. Nev
ertheless, the undertone was heavy under quite
an Imposing array of bearish news, the chief
Item of which was the fact that primary re
ceipts today were more than double those of a
year ago. Country consignments of cash
wheat today were larger than the sales and
Include some spring wheat as well as hard
and red winter, the winter wheat from Illinois
mainly. European markets were lower.
Corn was heavy all day, but declines have
been stubborn. Local shipping anil export con
cerns say today has seen the poorest demand
of the season for cash corn, as points other
than Chicago have evidently filled up over
night bids tram the east.
Oats were (lull all day, but followed the lead
of other grains. As In wheat and corn, pri
mary arrivals today morfc than double those
of a year ago. Near deliveries, December In
cluded, have shown more weakness than the
deferred.
Provisions were rather irregular. There wag
a strong start because of the higher hoi?
market and lighter run In the went, there was
fie,- realizing on the bulge, and there were
gains Inter on renewed buying from local
source!. Hog receipts are disappointing and
there arc two sides to the, market.
