Chicago. Jaly It Extraordinary
weakness developed in tbe wheat
market today, and prices made a
steep descent. Tha December de
livery In which most of tha trading
centered, fell more than 10c a
bushel 'before showing signs of a
rally. There waa a notable lack of
buying orders. Bearish weather re
ports tram the northwest and talk
of money scarcity explained in
some degree the actios of tha mar-1
set. A part of the selling was said
to be on foreign account. Opening
pricea which ranged from the same
as yesterday s to 9 c lower with
December at S2.60V4 to 2.68 and
March $2.74, were followed by a
further decline to $2.60 for Decem
ber and then a reaction to $2.62.
In the corn pit, there waa active
selling on the part of the same
commission houses that were con
spicuous on the bear side yester-
day. Demand jas lacking except
for shorts. After opening . lc
down to 114c advance, including
September $1.50 to $1.50,. the
whole market declined sharply, but
later recovered most' of the loss.
Oats weakened with other grata
September opened c off to c up
at 75c to 76Vic, declined to 75c
and then turned upgrade.
Provisions were steady to 'firm, in
sympathy with an advance in the
hog market . ..
Slight rallies ensued as a result
of buying on options that the de
clines of late had been somewhat
excessive. The cloqe was 'unset
tled at the same as' yesterday's fin
ish to c higher, with September
1.49 to 1.49, and December
1.37 to 1.38.
Demand became more active lat
er. The bulk of the buying was for
seaboard interests, and there was
some exchanging of futures against
sales of wheat for export Prices
closed heavy, 10c to 10c net lower,
with December $2.60 and March
$2.64.
