Announcement of the failure of a
prominent brokerage house actively
identified with the expansion of the

its relation to stock exchange loads,
was declared to be eminently sound. 4
Dealings fell away somewhat from
yesterday's high record, but the num
ber of Individual shares traded in was
almost as large, embracing a variety
of investment Issues, many of which
were probably liquidated to establish
year end losses.
Shorts were driven to cover just he

much of their loss of the mid-session.
Net losses of 3 1-2 to 6 points were

a feeble rally from yesterday's spec

lsh effect Wednesday on the wheat
market. Wheat closed slightly lower.
May 1.57 1-4 to 1.57 1-2. Corn lost
7-8 to 1 1-2 and oats 5-8 to 1 1-4, In
provisions the outcome was unchang
ed to 17c higher.
Lack of confidence In the buying
side of the wheat market was largely
associated w'th the disturbance of se
curity values in Wall street and par
ticularly with the fullure of a New
York brokerage house. Depression in
the cotton market was also an evident
bearish factor as to wheat and so like
wise was the absence of any big ex
port buying. Various rallies seemed
due mainly to shorts covering, and to
be of a transient character. Some
selling of wheat to go Into store here
waa reported and there wore deliver
ies today of 115,000 bushels of Do.
Oats sagged with corn.
Higher quotations on hogs gave con.
