Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce, Stpt. 17.
—The bulls got active in wheat this morn
ing and r»n it up over a cent. There was
little in the wheat situation proper for them
to work on, but the corn market gave inspira
tion for a sympathetic upturn. Frosts in the
northwest, and predictions of frost to-night
for the corn belt geared the corn shorts badly,
and there was a rush for cover. Snow looked
up the records and reported that last night's
frost was the earliest sluoe 1889, and that
the corn crop on the whole is later in matur
ing this season than for many years. This
helped the strength. Wheat opened a shade
higher, December at 67%0, and with strong j
corn talk in the air the wheat shorts also
got nervous and began covering freely. De
cember wheat sold to 69c. May opened at 71c |
and sold to 72*ic. September started at 67% c ]
*nd touched 69c. Another heavy run of wheat
was shown in the northwest receipts, with
1.479 cars posted. Of this, however, the great
bulk, or 1,110 ears, went into Duluth and
from this there was no heavy selling pressure.
Foreign markets were at first dull and un
responsive, but on the last Liverpool cable
that market was up %d, which helped ma
terially in maintaining our higher market.
Antwerp was unchanged. Paris made an ad
vance of 10 to 20 centimes on wheat and flour.
Eiaas-treet's figures on the world's visible
supply are for an increase of 2,584,000 bushels.
Southwestern receipts were light. St. Louis
received 47,000 bushels against 126,000, and
Kan&ar City had 476 cars against 950 last year.
pTiitary receipts were 2,059,000 bushels, com
pared with 1,233,000 bushels, and shipments
876,000 bushels, compared with 1,086,000 bush
els latt year, Minneapolis received 369 cars
«ud Duluth 1,110, against 284 and 221 last year.
Clearances for the day were disappointing,
showing 333,000 bushels of wheat and flour.
At the close the market showed continued
■trength and fractionally higher prices were
touched, the market closing strong near the
high points of the day. December closed at
69V»@69&c; September at 69% c, and May
wheat at 72% c. Chicago closed December at
71%@72c.
Cash wheat sold at about yesterday's basis
all through. No. 1 northern averaged Me
over December, selling at 68Vic to 68% c. No.
1 northern to arrive was in good sale on a
range of 68% cto 69c. For No. 2 northern
l^c to 2c under December was the basis
for the average, and on No. 3 wheat 3%c
under December. Low grades sold well and
ranged from 60% cto 65% c for rejected and
no grade.
THE FLOUR MARKET
Pflces Firmer—Trade Quiet, Espec
ially Foreign Trade.
Quotations are 5c per barrel higher. De
mand is moderate and orders to-day compara
tively light. There was little foreign busi
ness. The effect of the general depression
and tone of hatf-suspension of business since
Saturday is felt. With further closing of
business on Thursday, millers are inclined to
look for moderate sales in the aggregate until
after this week.
Shipments for the day were 47,930 brie.
First patents are quoted $3.90@4; second
patents, $3.70@3.80; first clears, $2.85@2.90;
second clears, $2.25.
THE CASH TRADE
Flax Advanced Ten Cents—Corn and
Oats Higher-Rye Firm.
—There was considerable excitement
in flax this morning and a lively bull market
all through. Frosts over the northwest were
in part the cause. Opinions differ widely as
■' to the possible damage, as not much flax is
believed to be so immature as to suffer.
Nevertheless, the possibility that the big
figures lately put out for the northwestern
yield may be cut down was an incentive to
buying, and the market responded promptly.
Spot No. 1 sold at $1.58@1.60. With this
there was quick covering in September.
Many traders had sold September flax, look
ing for a free movement from North Dakota
before this time, but rains in that state have
delayed threshing so that receipts have not
been anywhere near what the sellers had
figured on, and on fear of not being able to
make good on deliveries there was free bid
ding for September. October was the most
active option here, selling from $1.43 up to
11.51. Minneapolis sold up even to Duluth
after being 2@2&c under that market for
: some time.
Minneapolis received 14 cars, against 21 last
year, and Duluth 35 cars.

been affected by the report of frosts in the
west and northwest. December wheat opened
with a very light trade in the pit, %c to
%@Vie higher, at 70% cto 70%@70%c. The
offerings were small and in sympathy with
corn, which felt the effects of the frost most,
grew firm and reached 71c. On moderate sell
ing the price fell to 70% c again, but soon ral
lied to 71%@71 lAc, where it steadied. Local
receipts were 362 cars, 11 contract. Minne

of 1,841, against 1,707 last week for the three
points and 815. a year ago.

WALL ST. ACTIVITY
Trading Brisk, but With No Large
Deals.
PRICES OVER YESTERDAY'S CLOSE
Market Becomes Irregular, With
Narrow Movement in the
General List.
New York, Sept. 17.—The opening trading
in stocks was active, but no very large blocks
changed hands. A disposition to take profits
was manifest, declines in one or two cases
running up to a point. Other prominent
stocks showed fractional gains, but were in
clined to yield somewhat after the opening.
Stocks were offered more treely after the
uneven opening. Some of the specialties lost
a point, including Amalgamated Copper and
Brooklyn Transit. Large buying orders then
appeared for Manhattan, lifting it 2% to 121%.
Other stocks joined the upward movement,
Metropolitan Street Railway rising 1%;
Brooklyn Transit, 1%, and some of the less
prominent railroads a point. Prices else
where ruled about on a parity with yester
day's close. Realizing in Manhattan and
Metropolitan Street Railway forced them
down a point, and the market's tone became
easier. St. Paul spurted to 153% and pulled
the market upward, but reacted again to be
low 163.
The market continued irregular in tone. I
There were advances here and there, but the i
movement' in the general list was narrow.
Rock Island rose 3 points; Sugar, 414- St
Paul touched 164, and Illinois Central,' some ''■
of the Coalers, Western Union, Union Pacific ;
and Colorado Southern second preferred
gained from Ito 2 points. }
Prices sagged away again in a dull mar
ket, the reaction running from 1 to 1% in
Sugar, St. Paul, Amalgamated Copi*>r, Rock
Island, Western : Union and the New York
tractions. St. Paftl was bid up strongly
again to 164%, and Union Pacific, 101%.
Lower prices were generally made for
stocks during the early afternoon, the de
cline from the best reaching about a point
in some leaders. The frequent advances and
reactions in St. Paul made the traders cau
tious about operating in other active stocks,
and trading was small. Rock Island had a
renewed advace to 144%, and large purchases j
of Missouri Pacific advanced it 1%.
People's Gas was marked up over a point
but that did not avail to hold the market, and
prices melted away under a constant dribble
of realizing. Only the strongest of the earlier !
active stocks had even small fractions left !
as gains over last night. .The general level
of prices fell below last night. Amalgamated i
Copper fell an extreme 3. There were a few
spasmodic rallies, but the closing was mod
erately active and weak, near the lowest.
Bonds were ■ irregular,

MISCELLANEOUS
New York Cotton.
New York, Sept. 17.—Cotton opened firm
and 3@5 points higher. Continued heavy
rains in the eastern and central belt, with
heavy frost north of the western belt, gave
a scare which did not subside until January
had advanced to 7.74 c. The trade as a whole
changed its views on the crop outlook in the
central section of Georgia, which is a heavy
increase over last year, and may offset the
shortage in the western belt. Spot closed
steady and V&c higher; middling uplands, B%c;
middling gulf, B%c. Sales, 2,412 bales.

lasses—Steady. Coffee—Steady; No. 7 Rio,
OV2P The markPt for coffee futures opened
steady in tone at an advance of 6@lo points
on local and foreign covering, prompted by !
better advices from the French and German '
barkets, an absence of sellers and a higher
Rio exchange rate. Immediately after the
call sellers became more aggressive, but
failed to force values down. During the'fore
noon a steady undertone prevailed, with the
opening level the basis of operations Trad
ing was moderate. The feeling at midday was
tolerably steady, with prices net s@lo points
above the closing figures of yesterday. Sales
up to noon footed up 25,000 bags, including
September at 4.85 c; February, 5.30 c; March,
