Assertions that the alleged damage to the Argentina crop had ben made, too much of put the wheat market today on the clown grade. Clos ing prices liowed a decline of M,o to ',u net. Corn Untitled at H'bu to He advance: oatn, unchanged to a sixteenth up, and hog product varying from 60 off to a Ilka amount Increase In coat. Selling ot wheat waa largely dona by local professional speculator. Their cue was taken from the fact that Argentina weather reports appeared greatly Inv proved, but a mora powerful influence waa an expert opinion that the effect of rain would not ba as aerlou as prevtou statement Indicated, and that the key to the situation wa south Argentina, where the outlook at present waa mot promising. Fairly liberal receipts north went of Chicago, and fin rain and snow lell over the entire hard winter wheat country west and southwest added to the force of bear sentiment. Toward the end of the day, however, buying on the part of cautious shorts led to the re covery of nni of the lost ground. n During the session May ranged from SSo to 9iic, closing firm but Vu"ac , uown at MUa, An official prediction of unsettled weather forced the core market to a Mttber level. It was noticed that even without such a further handicap the cuuntry movement waa light and that roads were bad generally throughout the belt.

Notwithstanding that the oats market wa alow and heavy most of the day, valuea In the end responded a little to the strength of -urn. The hardening waa due partly to a desire by shorts to se cure profits. High and low limits reached for Hay were y,c and 4hWo, with the close se, exactly the) ait me as lant night.

NEW YORK STOCK MARKET Insistent Demand of German Banks for Funds Feature of Day. MONEY SCAECE IN GERMANY Heavy Bnylns of ftterl Prodnet Ri pected from Eallroads and Oea rrally Favorable Conditions Are Reported. NF.W YORK, Deo. 20.-The insistent de mand of Herman hank for "over-year" fund wa the significant fenture on what otherwise was a dull day In Wall street. Large amount already have been loaned to Germany, Seven per cent was paid for the greater part of this money, and offers at "4 to a, per cent advance of this rat were reported. The amount of American credits In tlermany Is, of course, unknown but It I believed not less than 1 120, ft 10,0110. Cable advices were that an acute strin gency prevailed In the Oerman money market, an wa Implied by the urgency of the demand for funds. The present Ituntlon wan nald by International bank ers to be the result of over speculation In Germany, over expansion of credits snd the withdrawal of fund by France In the fall, at the lime of the Moroccan care. Unusual Interest attache to this situation because of the fact that a large f'art of the loan contracted here by Her In Interests In the course of the Moroc can dispute, mature at the end of the next month. Unless these loan are ex tended, Germany's financial reaources will be put to a severe tax. . In th stock market buniness fell oft sharply. With no new Impetus sufficient to a decided trend, prices moved In an Irregular, aimless way. Some appear ance of strength wa lent by a two point advance In Union Pacific and a continua tion of the upward movement In special ties which have been prominent recently. The electric shares, International Har vester, American lleet Sugar, Central leather and American Linseed common and preferred scored the best gains. I-e-hl"h Valley, after an early advance, fell back sharply and on the announcement that the director hud taken no action In regard to an extra distribution. Amalgamated Copper rone In response to ths advance In price of the metal to 14'4, th lilghent price for nearly three years.

For th tnree davs this week the total foots up 8,892 head, a against 22,179 head for the same days last week and 12,1142 head for th same period year ago. Ths light receipts were suf ficient In the face of a very fair demand to advance prices, but another bull argu ment that had no little Influence on the market was the feeling that receipts the remainder of the week would be very light. As next Monday, Christmas day. will be a hoi day. the yards not beuig open for the sale of stock, packers were naturally anxious to pick up . as many killers a possible, so as to have some thing to carry over until next TusadAy.' Lveryone was out In the yards early In th morning and It did. not take buyars very long to clean up everything in the way ot dsoent beef steers tn sight. I-As a result practically everything In the yards in tne way or killers was sold and weighed at an early hour, the prices paid were fully 10c higher than Vester- uay, and In some cases more. This means that the market today was safely 20c higher than last week s close, and in some cases more than that. Cows and heifers showed about th same advance as beef steers, and they, '.00. ar xoo or more higher than - last week's clone. The demand for feeders has been rather slim this week, with the result that pi lea have eased otr. it win be remembered, however, that last week they did not break as much as did kiliers, hence the are still high in comparison to tn way tat cattle are selling.

I 1 flrlEEP Conditions In the sheep and lamb trade favored selling Interests only nngniiy, ine general marget naving many Phases In common with yesterday's ses sion. Good lambs ruled strong to about a dime higher, while medium iambs and all kinds of sheep sold at figures steady. or very nearly so. Packing demand cen tered upon tnppy corn-fed Jambs, despite an Increasing proportion of this class of stock, and the brisk Inquiry for quality string was plainly responsible for Im provement. Retail orders for fancy scored carcasses are more plentiful at this time ot the year and In order to fill these orders properly packers unually show a decided partiality for plump, corn-fed stock. Total receipts were limited to about S.OvO head, an estimate that served to put additional life Into the trade, and by 10 o'clock almost everything with finish had changed hands. Choice fed western lambs touched 6 and near prime offer ings, both natives and westerns, landed at $5.90. Medium lambs moved at and under $5.50. the full dollar range In prices being preserved. Matured muttons were purchased In fairly active fashion, but did not find nn outlet an readily as fat lambs. Ewe sales were frequent, and business In heavy wethers proved rather light, a fat ewe.t, rather than wethers and yearlings, mada up the bulk of the nheep supply. Attrac tive ewes with more or less weluht brought $3.40ft3.60, and Inferior grade sold under $3.25. Something strictly choice In the way of corn-fed ewe would prob ably sell at $S.li'3.66. prime wether ar quotable up to $4. Display of feeders had a remnant ap pearance and nothing much happened lo afford anything like a fair tent of val ues. The two days' purchase on country account, according to packers' tabs, amounts to only ,200 head. - Spreads showed the usual 60-cent range between prime lard and poor light grades, the best heavies on sale selling at 86.20 as compared with yesterday's top of $0.16. Butcher animals moved around $6.006.05 and light averages sold from $6.00 down to 6.$S5iffS.70.
