Frost Reports Come In from the
Northwest and Too Much
September Holds Back, but July
Wheat Takes On Great
Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce, May 25.
Frost in the northwest and rains in the south
westthese were the reports that put wheat up
witt* a rush this morning. May was back again
to the former high point of Sept. 13 last, or
*121%. July sold to $112Vi and September to
SflMiC. From these points there was recession, but
the tendency lemained tirm and the market
looked up again on every little turn of buying.
The frosts scared the traders not a little, but
there was still much hesitancy to buy, as some
feared there might be exaggeration. The Red
riTer valley has received some hard knocks at
times, in seasons past, and yet did fairly well.
HO there were few who believed that there has
been any Injury to make a scare Still the facts
are that there has been an excess of moisture,
a lack of good growing weather and now a drop
In temperature to a point low enough to cause
frosts at several important points A large pro
portion of the wheat area has been seeded with
light-weight ted and what the trade would
like to know is how this is going to stand ad

have felt it so mncli. but the southwest sent
bad reports also Ellsworth, Kan., said the smut

a abort time ago At least ten other southwes
tern points sent in unfavorable wires, and that
there was basis for Increased apprehension of
damage from too much moisture was proved bj
the remarkable showing of 8 08 inches of rain
last night at Kansas City. Talk of a record
breaking wheat crop has now ceased. No one in
the tiade longer speaks of an early harvest or
of a yield greater than anjthing ever known.
On the contrary, there is geneial belief that
the prospect both for an early harvest and for
the yield has been lowered To what extent is I

At a meeting of the board of trustees of the
university at Fargo last week, it was voted to
close the School here and establish a Wesley
college at Grand Forks. After this decision,
the creditors of the school, whose claims amount
to about $20,000, began to figure out ways and
means of getting their money. The assets of
the university consist of the bnildlng, furniture
and about seventy acres adloinlng the city.
The property cost about $60,000, but the build
ing is worth little or nothing except for school
The Science school has never had a building,
and no funds are available with which It can
buy, but an agreement was reached by which
the building will be leased for two vears, and
if an appropriation is made by the legislature
two vears hence the building and fifteen acres
will be bought for the amount of the present
Indebtedness plus 6 per cent interest.
The remaining fifty-five acres are to be deeded
to the city and the proceeds from it used for
building a library, gymnasium or city hall.

PIG MARKET QUIET AND LOWER PRICE
LEVEL IS EXPECTED.
New York May 25.In all the leading dis
tributing centers the pig market is very quiet,
according to the Iron Age. No sales of any
consequence for forward delivery have taken
place, but there is a fair volume of orders for
early delivery and consumers are taking their
iron on old contracts steadily. Sharp distinc
tion must be made between the volume of buying
and the current or futnro consumption. Produc
tion has been very slightly in excess of re
quirements, but that does not mean that con
sumption is noot going on at an unprecedented
rate In fact, there are some Indications that
the foundry trade is picking up a littlo.
Sentiment has changed, however, prices are
weaker an3 buyers are holding off, convinced
that a somewhat lower level in pig Iron will be
