THE BEE: OMAHA, THURSDAY, DECEMBER IS, 1013.
11 GRAIN AND PRODUCE MARKET Pit Talent Asserts that Market is Being "Pegged." CORN CLOSES AT HIGH POINT December Deliver)- In the Strongest Spot, Followed Closely by the i Options lor Mnr of Next Year, OMAHA, Dec. 17. 1913. The talent In wheat were complaining again, yesterday of the market being1 'pegged'' between certain level and 01 the bull Interest eecurlnn profits above and below stipulated figures. They also complain that It Is an .impossibility to head off these people, as the' qwn enough of the futures as well as the cash to bo able to control the price from day to day. 4ii6 wheat market again .narrowed down to disgustingly narrow limits, and the. volume of business was confined al- most wholly to the room traders. These speculators are satisfied with following the larger trailers In the advances and declines, not being wilting to sel or buy a lino and stand on It. These dull seasons are seen from time to time, but they are seldom as dull as at the present. There Is little on which to bull wheat, and while there la considerable on which to bear It, there Is no one In the trade with the nocessary backbone to pat out a big short line. John Barrett was the big bear for a time, but ho Is now In the camp of the opposition, and, really, he looks out nf tilnrrv his face nreeentlni a woe-DCKonc appearance, unless mere is - - . a change, for the better this old time spec ulator is more than likely to be seen again leading the bears In wheat. He has a following, not only In Chicago, but In the smaller markets of the country, because of the fact that when ho at tacks values- he goes at It In a hammer-and-tongs fashion and gets results. , A message from r-lnnlpcg said there wero big sales of wheat thero yesterday, all rail to tho seaboard, and that the purchases of foreigners during the last two days Were on a largo scale. Corn closed at the high point of the day and surprised even Its friends by reacting from tho early low levels. The December delivery was the'' strongest spot," but It was closely followed by the Slay. Outside markets reported a bet ter business In cash corn. One of the surprises for the day was the message read here by Shearson Harmlll. giving the exportable surplus of corn In Argen tine at 35O,WJO,00O bushels. A cargo of Argentine corn was offered c. 1. f. the eastern seaboard at 70c, JanUary shlp- rnent, while tho last sale was nt 73c. As In December cbrn, December oats were strong, and It looked as if there as,a lingering short Interest In that future. Tho difference between Decem ber and May narrowed somewhat yes terday. While tho provision market averaged higher yesterday because of smaller of ferings and covering by shorts, In addl tlon to this the volume of trade was much larger. Many of the larger hold ers, especially the grain men. liquidated early in the" week and tho offerings were 'small yesterday, Cash wheat was unchanged. ,. .Cash corn was HB2c higher. Cash oats were He higher. Clearances were: Wheat and flour s.coo bi ,! corn' 2- bu,: Llverpoor closed with wheat Ud higher and with eorh HVW lower.

V. . .. m.l,w,at a,aa.a,4 nff .hm.Mliat. though not nearly as much as the news ntnifuri in ti. rir.nA 1 appeared to susirnst. Tho close was steady at the same as last night to Milrwo down. Corn made a net gain of HJiHc, oats finished unchanged to l-16c higher and provisions up a shade to 1W. Previous to the announcement of the government figures the wheat market seemed to favor the bulls. Reasons for tne firmness were higher cable quota tlons. continued light receipts northwest and fear of a crop se,are In the winter wheat belt. Wet weather emphasised the complaints of rank growth In many fall town noms. Oood luilccs said the bearish showlne of tho government report would have had , ' ...u nuiviuiiiciu . l ..v. i . nvuiu im.g lin.i much greater effect but for the excessive development of the wheat plant during mo aonormauy mua weather of the last month. The unusual chances of serious Injury In case of a sudden hard freeze tended to make, speculators wary, and averted an otherwise probable determined auacK ny snort sellers. Corn displayed displayed strength from ine start, snorts were uneasy over a prediction of rough weather and because of a falling off In offers from Interior dealers, especially In Iowa and Illinois. Although business In oats proved light, the market was atdcaled by the corn bulce. Aggressive buying of ribs lifted the provision market notwithstanding that receipts of hogs, were conrldcred to be above current needs. Leading futures closed as follows: Artlclel Open. Hleh. Low.

At the same. .time that receipts worn so light, there was a fair buying demand, with the result that desirable beef steers this morning were strong to lOo higher than yesterday, Common and Inferior grades did not show any material Im provement, but as a rule were slow but steady. Desirable kind of cows and heifers sold wltrnmore freedom than either yes terday or 1 the daj before, and thy wern generally quotable as strong to 10c higher. Inferior kinds were slow sellers nnd no better than yesterday. Somo salesmen were complaining that canners, which have been selling pretty well of lata, were weak this morning. Stockera and feeders did not show much change. As notod before, the demand from tho country has not been very brisk during the last few days, and the trade at this point has been rather dull, with prices lower.
