WHEAT MARKET MADE A TURN FOR THE BETTER
Early Weakness Broke It Again,
but July Sold Back to 68c
Near the Close.
JULY AND SEPT. ON SAME LEVEL
Good Cash Demand and Foreign
Flour Sales Help the
Market.
Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce, June
13.—Wheat broke again this morning and
with continuation of the extreme weakness
In July and relatively firmer tone in Sep
tember the two options finally got on the
same level, both selling at 68W:@66%c after
the first hour.
The opening was very quiet, July barely
steady at yesterday's closing figure, 67^c.
There was noticeable hesitation at first and
not much business. Scalpers seem to t>e
doing the bulk of the trading just at pres
ent. Sentiment shows some change. After
the severe decline and utter demoralization
of (he market for the past ten days it would
seem that reaction . should jbe In order even
If only temporary in character. Every day
tea* : th» close some long wheat is ; taken
en la the hops that bottom, has been ?'struck
on this decline and that the .morning .will
bring reactionary firmness, at least enough
for a ' scalping turn. The market,' however,
Is without even enough good support to ab
sorb these . moderate offerings, and every
day sees a little temporary,strength at the
■tart and a new low price made cm the' sub
sequent decline.: At to-day's low , sale July
was nearly 9c.under th« late high point. Ad
mitting that this high point was in part
the result of the dry weather talk then going
on and fear of drought, and that conditions
since then have shown wonderful improve
ment, that the outlook is such as to indicate
an enormous general yield, and admitting
the force of all the bear arguments that
har* been put forth of late, it follows,
nevertheless, that 9c is .a pretty heavy de
cline. The persistent bearishness continues
uninterrupted ard during the * decline there
has ' been no' reaction worth noting... July
may,' sell to 65c or under, but there is a
growing feeling that improved conditions
have been well enough discounted for the
present, and •while the market has probably
gone permanently to a lower level there is
a hard spot due to develop somewhere pretty
soon. Th« market is oversold and- the ques
tion Is whether the bears are not overdoing
it. On the-whole there seemed more confi
dence this morning than has been shewn for
some time, notwithstanding the market made
another decline.
The rains continue over the entire western
country and last night brought another gen
eral downpour. The heaviest rains were at
Springfield, Mo., 2.10 inches, -and 1.26 inches
fell at Wichita. ; All the country, from Mani
toba southeast, extending over the Dakotas
and parts of Minnesota, is more or less
rainy, or cloudy. The forecast is for more
rains over the northwest.
The Prloe Current says conditions of all
crops are being maintained or improved
upon. Wheat la filling well. Fly complaints
art* scattering and complaints of drought
have about ceased. Paris cabled that the
prospects la France are for a crop about
equal to last year's production, or in the
neighborhood of 310,000,000 bushels. Paris
closed wheat 5 to 10 centimes lower and 5
centimes lower on flour. Budapest was %c
higher, Berlin He higher. Liverpool futures
were %d lower for July and %d lower for
September.
Primary receipts were 491,000 bushels and
shipments 250,000 bushels, against 607,000 and
218,00 ft lust year. Clearances wheat and flour
729,000 bushels, corn 482,000 bushels. Minne
apolis received 237 cars and Puluth 93,
against 251 and 192 last year.
The market took a sudden turn for the bet
ter just before noon. Damage reports from
southern Illinois started St. Louis shorts
covering: end a spurt followed in all markets.
Minneapolis July sold up lc to 67% c; Septem
ber sold to 67%@67%c. There was good cash
trade reported from all markets and millers
had more active foreign inquiry for flour
than for some time. At the close the market
•was firm, July closing at 67% c, September at
67^0. Chicago July closed at 71@71%c.
Caah wheat waa again in good sale, al
though the market did not show the snap of
yesterday at the start. Prime milling wheat
Is In demand and holds well up in price. No.
1 northern sold at lc over July for ordinary
and at l\ic over for choice. No. 2 northern
was salable at 65c to 67c. 'No. 3 ranged from
C2c to 65M-C Rejected held around 60c to
63c for good lots and sold to 58c for poor. No
grade brought 59c to 62c, very poor stuff
selling lower.
THE FLOUR MARKET
Heavy Export Business Reported
To-day.
The flour market is greatly improved all
around. Besides a good domestic demand,
there was a noticeable increase in foreign in
quiry and good sales were made to go abroad.
All the millers reported business and It
looks as If the foreign buyers are at last get
ting ready to take hold. Sales for foreign
account were put at about 50,000 barrels for
the day, which Is very good, considering the
dull tone that has prevailed and the marked
tendency to hold off. First patents are
quoted $3.80@3.90; second patents, $3.60@3.70;
first clears, $2.65@2.75; second clears, $2@2.10.

about a point each..

rgain to. 113^ and some other prices got
back to the top. The close was active and

cept some 1: of the convertible issues, which

SPECULATIVE GOSSIP
The Northwestern Miller's preliminary re
port of New York, Ohio, Michigan^ Indiana,
Tennessee, Illinois and Kansas shows in
creased damage to wheat from fly. It is
■ claimed that the New York crop is practically
i wiped out though looking well two weeks ago,
Chicago to Watson: Bids on cash corn
i are %c better than yesterday. Liquidation
i and short selling has been heavy to-day.
Think long lines have been nearly sold out.
Our advices on the Kansas crops.are "that it
got bad start and that acreage has been
largely reduced." Unless the crop makes
rapid improvement in the next-two weeks be
lieve market will work higher.
Chicago to Lewis: Dull and quiet and
steady; oommiseion houses liberal buyers
around 68%@69c. Local crowd the sellers
weakness in July due to continued liquidation
by scattered longs. Professional pit traders
have quit trading in July:
Chicago to I. G. Andrews & Ca: Consider
able pressure on the July option has had a
depressing effect on the September wheat,
though the difference has narrow.cd. Looks
as though a good short interest developing
and with crop not ye£ harvested, the Septem-
I ber should, not look high. We are getting re
j ports of damage to corn, necessitating re
i planting. Should complaints become general,
the December option, now about 3c to 3%c
under September,' could easily go to a prem
ium.
St. Louis receipts: Wheat, 24,000 bu, against
12,000 bu last year; corn, 36,000, against 100 -
000 last year; oats, 33,000, against 20,000 last
year.
L. T. Sowle & Sons say: The foreigners are
beginning to buy our wheat and flour again
heavily and with large clearances shorte are
gettig anxious. Looking at the rapidly
declining stocks of old wheat and the well
known shortages abroad, we expect to see a
good rally In July price.
Clearances: Wheat and flour, 729,000 bu;
corn, 482,000; oats, 41,000.
Logan, Chicago, to Jolley: St. Louis buying
September wheat. Some of the local bears
covering their shorts in July and September
wheat.
The lowa June crop report makes the win
ter wheat condition 97; spring wheat, 93;
corn, 90; oats, 89. Farmers hold about 15
per cent of the 1900 corn crop.
INVESTMENT GOSSIP
Waldorf gossip to Watson & Co.: Brokers
say it was another day of professional trad-,
ing in the stock market. The fact is the
theory that the large interests are permit
ting the room traders to raid or bid up
stocks within a narrow range finds very gen
eral belief. Morgan's return the latter part
of the month is talked of as an event which
may mark a turning point in the dullness.
There is a report that all is not harmony in
Tobacco camp. It seems that the deal for the
absorption of the American and Continental
companies by the consolidated company has
bred dissension among insiders. Duke, the
head of the American Tobacco company, is
reported to be opposed to the deal on the
grounds that terms accorded to the Conti
nental company are much too liberal.
