Some attrition was given also to the Broomrmll rcporl of the morning saying Argentine wheat was worth nroui:d $1.12 per bushel if Mew York duty was paid, or about the same as our domestic red winter. Selling was not aggressive bul pit observers were at a loss at to where the offerings went. Good support was evident on the '.le- clincs and with the relative firmness In .Winnipeg, the toiu ic- niAintd relatively firm. Corn and oats were lower wt'.h wheat.
