Corn lost 1-8 to 1-2 5-8; oats 1-S

From the outset industrial and cron
conditions gave the bears an increasing-
advantage in the wheat market,
but especially so after definito an
nouncement was received that railway
employes and transport' workers had
joined in the Pritish coal strike. Con
tentions on the part of the bulls that
the difference of present grain prices
from those of a year ago was more
than a sufficient discount failed to
cause .much Impression in the face of
reaisuring advices from crop experts
accompanied by sellins oiders .from
the southwest. On the other han 1,
talk of exporters re-selling lacked
verification, and there were estim.it 's
current that Kuropeun interests hal
purchased 400,000 bushels of wheat
and 60,000 barrels of flour.
Corn and oats sympathized with
the weakness of wheat, but scantiness
of arrivals operated in a check on de
clines. Provisions were offered freely with
few takers. The downward tendency
of hogs and grain was the chief fuc-
uniformity, A broadening of retail
trade in some quarters is a hopeful In
dication, but part of It is duo to sea
