CBICAOO. April 27. (A. P.) Ex
Port buying on a large ecale turned
the wheat market yesterday from
weakness to strength. The close, al
though unsettled, was cftlc net
higher with May 1.26 A to 1.261 and
July 1.03 to 1.05. Corn finished
at Hie net decline to 5-8 t advance,
oats gained l-8c8xc to 3-8c and pro
visions 10c to 30c.
Estimates were current that wheat
export business the last 4 8 hours had
totaled as high as two million bushels.
During the first half of the day, how
ever, before the volume of the pur
chasing for Kurope was well under
stood, the bullR were at a disadvant
age. General selling In small lots took
place and moderate declines resulted,
with bears putting stress on talk of n
big strike on the part of American sea
men. New complications in the lirit
ish coal strike also tended to weaken
values. Subsequently much more no
tice was given to export dealings. A
a result, highest prices of the session
was scored after midday with profit
taking at the last leading to someth
ing of a reaptlon.
Further export demand for corn
helped to strengthen that cereal and
oats as well. Iiesides primary ship
ments of corn were In excess of re
ceipts. Packers' buying did a good deal to
bring about the upturn in provisions.
