Halt In Export Business
Drop Wheat at Chicago
CHICAGO. Dec, 8. Wheat under
went a sharp decline In price yester
day, owing largely to an apparent
halt in export business and to misgiv
ings about the banking situation In the
northwest. Closing quotations were
heavy, 714 to 9c net lower, with De
cember 1.70 and 'March 1.(7 1 to
'.87. Corn lost 2 to J 1-8 and oats
1 1-8 to 1 1-2. In provlsons the out
come varied from 40c decline to 12 ad
Refusal of exporters to follow the
recent upturn In wheat prices gave a
decided advantage to bears. Selling
was said to come In a considerable
degree from foreign Interests. Part of
the selling was also ascribed to uncon
firmed gossip that officials of the
Canadian government had completed
arrangements with Minneapolis mills
to devote 3,000 cars to the hauling of
wheat from Canadian terminals to
Minneapolis during the winter. On
the other hand, knowledge of addi
tional bank failures In North Dakota
incjudlng one federal reserve Institu
tion, was positive, and did a good deal
to deprive the market of support ex
cept from shorts who were In a posi
tion to collect profits.
Corn and oats declined with .wheat.
Weakness of grain and hogs made
provisions average lower.
