11 GRAIN AND PRODUCE MARKET Argentina Wheat Harvest Will Soon Be Under Way. TO HAVE DUE EFFECT ON PRICES JSxpnrtahle supply from Southern Hemisphere U Donnd to Influ ence the Market Quotations In Thla Country OMAHA, Nov. 17, 1913. The harvesting of wheat will be under way in the north of Argentine Irt a" short time, as the crop la ripening rapidly. Tha cutunit of linseed has been under way the last ten daya or fortnight. Desirable, weather Is particularly necessary In the districts where the wheat la about ready to harvest, but ralna were repotted there on Saturday. In the southern part t -Argentina the .weather Is still dry; It Is eald that deterioration continues' and: that the likelihood Is that the exportable surplus will be further reduced In conse quence. It may bo sold without fear of contradiction that . the most- careful thinkers In the wheat trade at Chicago and other markets of America, as woll as abroad, have been slow to even con sider as a fact some of the cables that have been received from the southern hemisphere because of the4r coloring. At least one set of cables continues to come forward telling of the loss . of . large amounts of wheat In one- province or another, while this st of cables Is con tradicted by the advices from houses In that country that are considered reliable, cash wheat was unchanged. Stocks of contract corn are being re duced right along and they are small yhen compared with a- month ago. The fact that they are owned by one or two concerns makes the position of the grain stronger than It otherwise would be. Tho larmer la not selling any corn to speak ?' in!t tn toljc cornea from the country that the price will have to bo advanced before the movement off the farms Is of even moderate, proportions, when tho crop of last year, as woll as this. Is taken into consideration. There Is only a mod erate open interest In the deferred months save that of hedging character. SfJ1 corn was unchanged to Sc lower. The situation In oats Is not as weak as II wa a fortnight ago. It is expected, tnat a large amount of Canadian orrts will come Into the I'nlted States before the-close of navigation. Cash oata were unchanged to lie higher. Clearances of- -wheat and flour were equal to 753,000 bu.. and no corn or" oats. ?0B0 of "wheat at Liverpool was W higher and corn i01o higher.

CHICAGO. 111., Nov. 17.-Late favorable news fro Argentina eased wheat after an early upturn, the market closing Ir regular, a shade up to liSUcc net lower: covering by shorts firmed corn, the close showing a net gain of Uto c; oats, helped by corn, showed a net rise of a shade to ViQc; provisions, on good buying, finished unchanged to 17V4c higher. Prompt chock to a strong bull tendency In wheat came on reports from Argen tine that rains in the northern port of that country were ceasing. Fears that the near at hand harvest would be greatly handicapped were allayed and in addition to the easing thus given prices were lowered because of liberal selling by in fluentlan houses which put long lines of wheat i on. the market at the attractive early bulge. The opening strength was caused not only by the fears of rain where more was not needed, but by lack of it in the south where drouth was causing as much alarm as the wet In the opposite port of the republic, A large Increase In the visible supply further Increased the bear sentiment fostered by the late South American advices. Shorts were scared by prospects of delayed marketing of new corn, their fear being board on a forectse of unsettled weatlier for nearly the entire country. The forecast led to covering that gave backbone to the market. Though oats hardened with corn buslnees was only moderate. One of the largest-western shorts was a big buyer of provision and this firmed the list In spite of q decline at the yards. Artlclel Opcn.l High. I tow, I Close.! Hat'y.

In the first hour there was a sharp de cline, which carried down the leaders a point or so. A recovery came quickly. In the afternoon speculation was lifeless. Wall street Is watting for news. The Imagined evils of the future have been discounted as accurately as may be now. Speculators ore watching for signs that will show them whether their Judgment has been correct. Investors are doing next to nothing. There was plenty of news today regard ing Mexico, the trad situation, events at Washington, and other things In which the street la interested, but tt was not hows of first Importance. There was nothing which Indicated decisive develop ments. With no occurrences at homo to affect the market at the opening, the tone was determined by thu London market, where Americans were heavy, Tentative ef forts of the bears to extend the decline availed nothlnr. Operations on the lone side met with no more success. The coppers failed to benefit bv the strong showing made In the fortnlglHly report of European supplies, showing n decrease of more than 3,000,000 pounds. intermittent Duying in Europe has corn paratlvely little effect, on account of stagnant conditions in the domestic mar. ket.

The proportion of killers and feeders was very much like It was on most days .of last week. , The packers did not try to buy anything during the first half of the forenoon, their bearish talk still being that the schedule of prices on the local market, continued too high compared with other points. About 10 o'clock a few of the fat offerings began to change hands on n bnsls of 15026a lower on both sheep and lambs and buyers apparently did not wnnt to fill orders very badly at tho re duction. The trade, however, dragged along until everything was cleaned up at the decline and the clearance took place at a reasonable hour. A large percentage ot tho lambs were of the cornfed kind and sold mostly nt R range of J.65r7.10. the latter figure being about as high as any lambs sold during the day. There was another light supply of mutton of ferings, consisting for the most part of ewes, and to all Intents and purposes the trade followed pretty much the same course its In the case of lambs. It was another good healthv market on most all grades of feeders, with fair to good feeder lambs and ewes In the best request A good majority of the lambs sold readily at K.2M!.50. with tha moat desirable ewes going around 3.60Cf3.7S. iweryining at an decent ns reeders was Picked UP In aroody season.

Unique Question Arises Over Land Drawn by a Woman According to advices received at the land department a peculiar question has arisen lit connection with Uncle' Ham' land lottery conducted nt ' North Platte. It seems that at North Platte anion the thousands registering and among the few hundred who were lucky In the drawing was a woman who registered- aa a soldier's widow. When the drawing occurred her name was not among the first few, but It was within tha limit. ao that she Is entitled to one ot the tracts of land. Since the drawing A' pro tost has been filed against this woman, the charge being made that she la Inel igible. According to the story at one time she was the widow of a soldier, but subsequently she married, the second husband having never been in the service of the government as s. soldier. Lter on the second husband died and at the tlmo of registering (he woman took the position that once having been the widow of a soldier, she still remains kuch, the second marriage not having taken from her tha right to enjoy the privileges of such widowhood. it Is sold that this la the first cose of tha kind that has over coma before the offllcals of tha land offleea In NVhmala and 'that they are all at sea over what they are going to do In the premises. It Is said tho case has been referred to the secretary of the Interior for an opinion.
