Chicago Grain and Provisions.
Wheat—Higher cables reflected our
strength of yesterday and there was ft
.little-buying, but the crowd were
ish and sold with wheat coming' out
through commission houses and brok
ers for local bulls on rains reported in
India and forty million bushels report
ed contracted for shipment from Ar
gentine during Jainuary, February aw
March, this, however, being.a re-has'h
of matter that was brought forth some
time ago. "the weakness in corn as
sisted the bears but under $1.06 May,
there was buying, against downward
indemnities, and on the upturn shorts
covered. Good rallies were brought
about on the heavy weekly clearances
Of 6,800.000 bushels, as well as 42
loads sold for export and 'a good cash
demand in the west and southwest,
with liberal flour sales in the north
west. The northwest news was bull
ish. We look for the export demand
to continue and would favor purchases
on Recessions.
Corn—Weather favorable and while
acceptances were small consignments
were quite large here from Illinois
points, much to the surprise of the
trade. Strength developed early or
small Argentine shipments. 293,000 bu.,
but there was selling by Cudahy brok
ers and the Patten house, that sug
gested a larger movement this way
from down the state, although, Iowa
and Nebraska advices were, if any
thing. more bullish, shipments still be
iog to the northwest., Considerable
long corn came out, but commission
bought on a scale* down, resting orders
being most plentiful and we think
purchases should be made on all weak
spots.
Oats—Market dull and lower in sym
pathy with wheat and corn with some
selling by the northwest.
Provisions—The cash trade was
slow and with hogs in large supply,
with 35,000 for tomorrow, it induced
selling by the packers including Ar
mour and Swift that put a damper on
"bullish sentiment. They are talking
65,000 hogs for Monday and 280,000
next week, and it may be* well for us
to mention that this week's receipts
are the largest since 1880. On sharp
breaks we look for good buying.-

HORSE DEMAND GROWS.'
With General Improvethent in Busi

Volume.
Chicago, Jan. 10.—Tradfe commences
to display more satisfactory tone in
the demand for all commercial classes.
Inquiry from all sources is not general
as improvement is diversified. Showing
evidence of revival in certain localities
and at a standstill at other points.
New York dealers are still out of the
market with dealers at the Empire
City over-supplied With good second
hand city horses that clear, at bargain
prices. The absence of snow in the
New England states depresses the de
mand for loggers and orders owing to
weather conditions as. well as financial
stringency, are abnormally light. Sev
eral consignments of stall finished
drafters that were purchased as feed
ers at the height of last year's prices
are being forwarded to market and
sold at a loss. Owing to the high cosi
of feed it has been unusually expen
sive to fatten horses the past three
months and feeding operations ar4
money-losing enterprises at current
prices for horses. Southern demand
improves and several loads of small
chunks at [email protected]$115 were purchased
this week for consignmeht to Rich
mond, Va., and other southern points.
Demand Is broader, clearance easier
