Omaha, Dec 10, 111$. In looking over the professionals In the wheat market yesterday the writer was unable to find many bears. Such en old time short and bear as John F. Barrett, the. well known professional, declared yesterday that he ha Joined hands with the bulls and that he believes prices will not only hold firm, but that they are likely to advance. It may be said that Mr. Barrett was the last of the old time crowd, who have adhered to the bear side for months and months, to desert the bears' camp and join hands with those who believe prices are low enough. It la a noticeable fact that tnose who bought wheat yesterday were cautious, as they seem to believe the market Is growing Into a one-sided af- rair and that any heavy liquidation would be likely to play havoc with values. Tho fact that those who are buying and selling cash wheat tn the different positions throughout the coun try were still unwilling to mane uiwr trftnajactlnria nuhltci wu nrobablv the cause of some buying by soattored shorts as well as by Investors. Tho situation In our own northwest, as well as In western Canada, is becoming more and more bullish. The best author ities in that country, both sides of the International line, say that wheat was riovef as well cleaned up as at the pres ent time. The railways have offered amplo facilities for the movement and the weather has been favorable almost every day since the crop was harvested issi summer. There was a weather market In com, with prices again lower and the old-time friends of this cereal wore slow to take hold on the buying side. Corn was under pressure on more occasluns than one. and It will take only a few days more favor able weather to force farmers out of their holdings, which Is likely to be accom panied with price recessions. A timmlnxnt Innir was the leading seller of ribs and there was some selling of lard by smaller packers. There was a llttlo bear pressure noticeable on pork from Pit traders. casn wheat wan uucnangea. Cash corn was Hfflc lower. Cash oats were Wc lower. nicsi-jintM of wheat and flour were 063,000 bu., corn 1.000 bu. and oftta none. At Liverpool wheat closed unchanged to 4d lower: corn HWd lower.

Spirited buying for prominent speculators gave a list today to wheat. The market closed firm. Uc to MCHc net higher. Corn finished Irregular, H0o lower to a like advance, and oats the same as last night to a shade docllne. Provisions wound up at a rise of 7H10o to 30c Sales to exporters were responsible for much of the bullish sentiment regarding wheat. One house here disposed of 250,000 bushels for Lisbon, It was said also that Kanra's City was selling wheat back to interior Kansas ror milling, and that Ne braska farmers estimated 35 per cent of the crop In their state, would be fed to live stock. Favorable weather for the Argentine harvest was offset by continued advices that the yield there was short poor, in duality, and -of light weight. Further more, the chances of winter killing by the recent ireexo in me ran sown neias south and west of Chicago were steadily kept in mina ny traaers. on the otner hand, bearish gossip was current that eastern roads In the United States would loan all tho cars required this winter to move grain to Atlantic ports. Realizing sales on the swells acted as an additional check Hgalnst a more substantial upturn. corn was under heavy selling pressure most of the day, but In the last half hour the market rallied, owing to alms that P't offerings were golnc Into strong hands. iieparts varied as to whether supplies from farmers showed arty decided Increase because or improved weather. Commis sion house buying steadied oats, but ship ments from Canada were said to be again a factor In the east, and there were con tinued liberal receipts In the Canadian northwest. Packers took an active hand at buying provisions when the market early gave way in sympathy with a decline In the price of hogs. Shorts were forced to "cover In a lively manner. Futures ranged as follows: Cattle Very Slow and Steady to Ten Centi Lower. HOGS UVE TO TEN CENTS OFF Shep and Lambs Slump, Bring Largely Ten ia Fifteen Cents LTrer Feeders In Light Sanely and Steady.

Unfortunately for the selling Interests Chicago was heavily overloaded with cattle, with tho reult that the market there broke sharply and caused a lower tendency at other nolnta. The beter grades of beef steers were rainy active at this point and generally steady. Good yearlings sold up as high as .$9,06. On the other hand the less de sirable kinds were slow to 0a lower than yesterday. Cows and heifers were slow all tho morning and It was lato before a clear ance was effected. Prices were gener ally all of 10c lower and tn spots worso than that. The demand for ttockers and feeders has been very poor all the week and as a result of tho slack demand prices to- aay were siow 10 ivo lower.

C 14 SHEEP Ths Packers were slow buyers this morning, which afforded considerable contrast to the active market of yester day. There was enough In tha way ot bear news, chief of which was tho heavy receipts and weaker tendency to prices nt Chicago, to cause sellers to be satisfied with steady prices here It they could gel tnem. The receipts continued moueraie, being placed ut about 1,100 head, sgalntt 12,044 on thti sumo day last week and 23.405 hend two weeks ago. and, atlde from a few wales the rest or the trading did not take nls.cn until rather lato In the forenoon. AVhen the market was over the best grades ot Inmbs and ewes looked steady to a dltnn lower, and anything on tne medium omer round a mean recep tion, nrlces being all of 1W11.V) lower than the best tlinn yesterday. While the movement wns not as active as on tne first two davs of the week, a fair clear ance was effected at a reasonablo hour. Fed western offerings and a few scat tering small bunches of natives comprised the receipts, mm these were practically all lambs and ewes, lambs being most numerous. Lambs tanged nnywhero from $7.25 to $7.66, according to finish and quality, It might be well to mention litre that It Is the consensus of opinion tmonr traders that there are Indications of a continued poor market for anything only hair tat, ami conditions in this re spect nro not Itkely to Improve now that the holiday season is drawing near. On the other hand, traders are confident there Is a good strongkundertone for any offerings well finished and the general situation In such kinds looks healthy for the t Inter.

KBff YORK. Dec i0. There were a few weak spots In today's stock market, but the general movement was narrow. The tone while uncertain, was better than yesterday. The Improved tone Induced shorts to take the profits shown In stocks v hlch had declined sharply snd covering operations caused a number ot sharp I pturns. m At the opening the whole lltt eased Off.

Mexican Mumped 6 points nnd the pre ferred nearly as much on Ihe report that Ihe directors nan passea me nivirna on Ihe preferred. Rock Island Issues nnd Western Maryland were heavy. , , The improving tendency of the market In the latter part or tho day was ascribed In part to the unexpectedly good showing rt.ade In United Mate Steel's monthly statement of unfllkd tonnstfe. The shrinkage of 117,000 tons was much mllr thud Innkpd for. II till steCl lllOVed up following the appearance of the state ment. Tho amount of unfilled orders at the first of tho month was me amaucm In two years and represented the eleventh successive monthly decline, woritm aninir infiiipnced the market for a time. London disposed of about 12.000 shares here.
