Compared with a week ago, corn quotations this morning varied, from 1 cent decline to 4c advance. Oats were unchanged to M:c higher. In the provision list, the net differences spanned from 77c decline to a gain of 2c. Despite indications of strenuous effort to vercome railway traffic rtiffifMlltipa nnrt in hnatpn tho crnn movement, the fact could not be ignored that the amount of con corn in Chicago was far less than usual at this 'season and that the 'visible supply as a whole was the smallest in 30 years. A prospect that a largo food loan to Austria, Poland and Armenia would be voted by congress was also a bullish in fluence. The record breaking drop lr. foreign exchange together with ! high domestic money rates de prived the corn market of much support at intervals, the more ac tive speculative options in partic ular. Buying for the seaboard gave firmness to oats. Provisions averaged lower in symparthy with foreign exchange. Chicago Livestock. Chicago, Jan. 31.

TODAY ALEDO LEGION TEAM BESTED IN POOR GAME Bostoniang Show Ex-Soldiers Fine Points of the Indoor Pastime Poor Crow4 Out. Superior playing coupled with lack -of practice by the losers gave the New Boston basketball quintet a decisive win over the Fallerans post at William and Vashti gym nasium last night Aledo "started with a dash, scoring the first bas ket after a few seconds of play. But there they stopped, with New Bos ton forcing the play throughout for a final score of 17 to 8. Bradford for the Aledo team was the only player who seemed to be able to cope with the BoStonians. Brashear was the star of the in-, vading team. He displayed won derful form and was always able to get away from the Aledoana. This is the second defeat in a week for the former soldiers. It can be laid at the door of over-confidence and lack of trainng discipline. Although the quintet is possessed of good material it is in the raw state and needs a great deal ot curing before atiy real basketball ability can be shown. It is expected that last night's defeat will arouse the ex service men and they will come back with the determination to form a winning combination. - Not more than a mere handful of spectators was present but the in tense cold of . last evening was partly to blame for that. No means of heating the gym", a fact of which' basketball fans is aware was the cause of the small turnout Aledo people have not taken the proper amount of interest in the welfare of the legion, although it is evident that every resident of the city is highly enthusiastic in wishing the legion a successful organization. The enthusiasm, however, seems to stop with the wish. When the leg- ion meets its next toe, wnicn win probably come from sojie nearby town, a great cnange 111 iu aiie of play is predicted. real crowd of enthusiastic supporters is ex pected to be present.
