CORN BULLS DESERT MARKET Thoae Who Put Out Short Lines on May Product Hare llrcn Forced to Walt Until Condition Turn to Their Favor, s. OMAHA. Jan. 20, 1913. A little bull news sprung on wheat came to light on Saturday, when it wan hinted that the reserves In the sprint? wheat country are smaller than generally believed or credited. The buying of goodly lines of the May future by brokers acting for Bartlett-Fraxler caused a rumor to be put In circulation that B. W. Snow of that house hod sent out a report that the northwestern reserves were smaller than Known by the casual speculator. Secretary FcAYaJ?1 p&Kb ot Bartlett-Frailer said that Mr. Snow had not sent out a report to the public, it was txulr.ved, however, that this big house, which is second to none In the world. In gatherin greUabte Information from all the grain growing countries had In Its possession some bull. Ish news, it Is a perfectly legitimate move to take advantage of any Informa tion one may have, as this information Is Kenerally quite expensive. Those who are in a position to know say that a great ileal of wheat la sUll to iro out of thin country and Into the Importing nations or the world, and that our stocks will show a material reduction all around by tha tlmo these sales are filled. At this sea son of tho year tho flour markets of the I nlted States are generally full and wearc, nut they nre now reported as being quite itctlve, with prices strong. The sales re ported at tho northwest during several lays of last week were quite large and fair quantities were on European account. At tho southwest there was also liberal bookings, and in addition to this shipping orders on old transactions were liberal. .No one In tho flour trade at Chicago or elsewhere Is able to recall a year when the situation wan as strong as. It is this season. Cash wheat, ?4fjlc lower. S Some of the old-time bulls in corn have deserted tho market and arc now to bo seen on the bear side.

CHICAGO. Jan. 20. Wbeat declined KCplic net today, corn and oats were steady and provisions scored a further advance. The decline In wheat began at the open, ing. It was checked momentarily bv purely local influences, but was weak thereafter. Lower cables, nn Increase in the visible as compared with a big d"-. crease a year ago, and Increase of 2.MW,H bushels In the quantity afloat and heavy world shipments were too much for tht price. Export business was flat, as -vus tha tin tho spot market. The close was only 14c-over the bottom. whllo the corn market had the ap pearance of heaviness, it was firm , compared with wheat, receding oniy UeHc. Trade was dull. Receipts were heavy and the cash market stagnant. Oats wore quiet and steady. Prices ad vanced early, but the gain was lost when wheat declined and tho close was un changed from Saturday. Packem were still buyers of provisions owing to the light receipts at primary points. Hog cholera, according to an expert authority, and other causes have cut the supply II per cent under that of a year ago. Closing prices were from IMc to 17Hc over Saturday.

FALSE RUMOR CAUSES BUYING Report ot Snppoacd Decision of Mln lieaotn Tint? Cnsc by Supreme Court In PTor of Null roads la Mistake. -NEW YORK. Jan. 20. The demand for stocks was light today and moderate offerings were sufficient to depress prices of the' leaders nearly to the low point Of the present movement. Tho market was dull and larding dragged. The only llve'y period of tho session came In the early afternoon when for a few minutes there was excited trading on a rapidly rising scale of prices. Tho spurt was due to a report that tho supreme court had decided the Minnesota rato 1 caso favorably to the railroads When It wan discovered that this case was based on an error In the reading of a telegram and that it was an Incon spicuous case Instead of the long-awaited Minnesota case, which had been decided, prices fell off as suddenly as they had risen and soon reached the lowest level of tho day. On the upward movement I'nlon Pacific gained threo points and other shares one to two. At tho low pqlnt a number of tho leaders showed recessions of one to two points and Amalgamated nt 70s. was at n net low quotation for tho movement. The copper shares were once more depressed, being Influenced adversely by the sharp break of the metal In London and reports of sales here as low as lfi cents. Steel nlso was under pressuro and there was renewed weakness among spe cialties which have been heavy recently. American Tobacco moved over a wldo range, rising 7t to 2SS only to fall back eight points later. In the last part ot tho day there was unusual activity In Rock Island securities. Tha common and preferred stock and tho collateral 4s wero weak, tho bonds losing 2Y,. Reports from western railroad man agers Indicated that business momentum was unchecked and that traffic on the western lines was being moro than main tnlned. An additional engagement of $2,000.00 gold for Europe brought up tho total for tha movement up to $9,000,000. Bonds were heavy. Total sales, $l.
