Increased Confutcnce !
Shown in Wheat,
CHICAGO, March 6. Increased
confidence in values showed Itself in
the wheat market yesterday., largely
on account of crop conditions and ex
port business, but also owing more or
less to optimism based on President
Harding's Insugural speech. The
market closed firm, 1 1-1 to 3c n't
higher, with March 1.7S 1-4 and May
1.(3 1-1 to 1.(3 3-4. Corn gained 3-8
to 5-8 3-4 and oats 1-i to 3-8. In
provisions there was a setback of 7c
to 15c '
At first the wheat market appeared
to be In a hesitating mood, with some
traders Inclined to the selling side as
the resut of the failure of the emer
gency tariff bill. For the most part
the pit regarded the tariff situation as
having been discounted In advance.
Selling was not pressed, and with the
receipt of green bug advices backed
with buying orders, the market soon
turned upward, especially as export
ers seem to be renewing their activity
at Kansaa City. Moderate further
gains were scored after the substance
of President Harding's . address be
came known. Reactions which took
place later were apparently of a tran
sient sort due to profit-taking.
Corn and oats sympathised jwlth

BOSTON, March 5. (A. P.) The

"Business has been limited In the
wool market during the week, buyers
apparently waiting for final disposi
tlon of the tariff. Importers who had
considerable quantities of wool en
route from the foreign markets were
greatly relieved at the ending of the
suspension. Prices are somewhat er

"Some buying is reported In the

around 23 to 23c and fine clips around
30 to 35c, dep tiding upon staple.

Trade Reports , " . .
NEW YORK. March 5. (A. P.)M
Bradstreet'a today says: -.
Trade and industrial reports con
tinue very irregular, varying. Indeed,
with almost every line and market re
porting, but while general character
ization is difficult, if indeed not Im
possible, it may be said that the appar
el and food trades, while noting cau
tious buying, present about the most
cheerful advices and exhibit the chief
strength, whereas many so-called ba
sic trades, and notably Iron and steel,
the other metals, coal and building
materials reflect the least optimistic
feeling and native weakness.
Even within these two great classi
fications, however, varying degrees of
activity and strength are noted, and
it is difficult to depict except at great
length the different shades of acivity
and price changes. Thus, in the ap
parel trades the weakness of raw cot
ton has been imparted to many staple
products, such as yarns, print cloths
and sheetings, and the underwear
trades, dependent upon the great
southern staple, also reflect some de
pression. Keekty bank clearings 17,357,8?!,-000.
