11 GRAIN AND PRODUCE MARKET Public Speculators Badly Needed to Liven Up the Pit. BULLS ARE QUITE ACTIVE Mktc Line of Whrnt In Their INm ftrialon anil Outlook la tbnt Sta tlatlcnl Xcvra "Will lie Kni-orablc to Them. r OMAHA, Feb. 16. 1911. The public Is badly needed In tile wheat market at Chicago. IJuslness In wheat Is now between professionals and the markets of the country may bo called Bcalplng affairs. Of course, there are "hrdglnn" transactions and there ra "spreads' made between Chicago and the smaller markets, but these transact tlons have very little to do with the rango of values, as they continue nar row and unattractive. There aro many now waiting for a chance to Invest In the wheat market, but they will not come In as buyers until the prospects sre for a quick turn. Sentiment cn whtat In bearish, with tho trade either Bhort or oven up. .At this season of year there Is always a coterlo of men who buy wheat and stand on It for a profit. Thoso who have mado money In years gono by have been the ones to take tho grain on tho weak spots. It will be remembered that the bull crowd In Chicago, who lost money for several years past on carry ing a big line of wheat In anticipation of crop losses In the Argentine, and who suffered heavy losses, became weary of making a play of that kind and now that tho Argentine crop has been heavily reduced they are not to be found In the market because of tho bearish condi tions surrounding wheat at Chicago arid in almost the entire world. The bulls in wheat were anything but idlo during the latter part of last week In reporting the' takings of cash wheat in various vosltlons. Duluth has con siderable wheat afloat and It was re ported Saturday that a round lot of No. 1 northern had been sold for shipment to Buffalo at the opening of navigation. A rumor was current In local circles that a, round lot of No. 2 northern had changed hands at Chicago, but could not be con firmed. ,T,ho.. stitlstlcs to appear late today will Hlt bo moro bullish than bearish and a further Increase In the vlslblo sup ply Is expected. While tho world's ship ments will be only moderate, a largo in crease in the amount on passage Is ex pected, and this will bvorbalanco a great deal, Thor business In both cash corn und pats; continues exceptionally small and in order to- place any strength in thoso markots there must be a change. The east is either not using any grat amount at course grains or It lu securing them elsewhere. Tho weather is excellent for the .-finishing of corn' In cribs as well as for shelling and moving It. The roads also are good for hauling oatB and It is expected that tho interior will offer these grains more freely as; spring appears, word was received at Chicago Saturday t Iowa was offering Increased quan tities of corn at both Chicago and Kart City and that some sections were asking for bids on oats. The larger packers in the provision trade continue in full control of that market and- they are on the buying sldo on 'all recessions. The east Is expected to continue as a buyer of live hogs in this market. Cash wheat was 14c higher. .Cash corn was Mo lower. Cash oats were unchanged to Uc higher.

Feb. 16.-Aftr aeveral W'eeks Of hesitation nnd Drnwtnp dllllnnaa. during which the level of prices was al most sianonary, 1110 siock market moved out of Its narrow groove today and turned down decisively. It was tho most Positive movement of tho year, which forced down many stocks from ono to two points. Trading was more actlvo on tho downward swing, and after tho force of tho selling movement had spent Itself, the market failed to exhibit recuperative, power and no substantial rccovory was effected. Tho sharp break was ascribed primarily to the further suspension by tho Inter state Commerce commission until Sep tember 12 of the 5 per cent Increase of freight rates by the Eastern roads. This action was Interpreted by traders as end ing hopes of a speedy Increase In rates and cause! selling of tho eastern railroad shares for both accounts, Lack of sup port for theso shares led to more general bear selling. An unsettled lnfluenco was tho softness ot steel, which had been conspicuous for several days. This stock was unloaded In large amounts, and as It gave way, the Industrials as a whole developed heaviness. Steel stocks were depressed by reports of wago reductions of steel mill workers. Extenslvo European soiling accelerated the decline. Arbitrage brokers estimated that 50,000 shares were sold here for European account. Professional traders were on the bear side, a position which most of them havo been maintaining for somo tlmo. it has been a common say ing In the street that a substantial re action was due, and when tho market showed signs of giving way today a vig orous bear assault was inaugurated unf hesitatingly. Western was strong and actlvo on tho report that American Telephone's hold ings of the stock would bo turned over to a syndicate Instead of being thrown 011 tho market.
