MAKE VERY FAIR GAINS.
ITHE FREE SELLING STARTED
JVHEAT OFF LOWER.
Corn Wan Stronger and Higher on
Hot Winds, Which Sent I'ricea
Up and Caused l.nying.
Mondaj. July D. 1S0O.
Th different speculative grain markets
to-day gave u ery geod exhibition of
strength, and their notions nt frequent in
tervals Indicated that there ncro a few
lulU left after their iatd f-haUlng up. nnd
If they did nrjt have full una complete con
trol of affairs, they were Btlll In a position
to make their presence felt. Tho two lead
ing markets started off quietly nnd lower,
being handicapped hy conditions of a weak
ening character, which brought nlout s me
Felling and chilled any bulll.sh t-mtlinent
that may have existed previous to the open
In? of business on 'change. This hold-back
of affairs lasted hut a short time, the t-lt-uatlon
suddenly developing cnns-Merahle
strength, und on upward movement was In
augurated by prices which assumed quite
large proportions and closed all the grain
markets higher for the day. There were
several eet-bacis to the upward movement
during- tlie day. but they were of no great
algnlncance and had no real effect upon
sentiment, which becarr.o quite prominent
as the strength continued to hold In the
face of some very bearish conditions.
The unexpected happened In wheat to
ay, and what looked exceedingly like a
bear day turned out to be Just tho oppo
site, a sharp up-turn taking place unex
pectedly and a strong market being hud
to the close. Undeniable weakness existed
right at the opening, due to some unfavora
ble news, and this grain was only prevent
ed from breaking sharply by the grc.it
strength displayed by the cheaper and
coarser cereal corn. All the leading mar
kets opened up lower, and this fact, with
large receipts here and bad cables, started
the local crowd off on the telling side of
the account, and dept. opened 33e lov.er at
VSc. and It toon went to T7-c, the low price
of She day. There was no support given
the market, except by a few shorts, but
their buying helped but little and only for
tho great strength developed by ccrn tho
declining tendency of tho market would
have continued uninterrupted. Receipts
here this morning were bejond the expec
tations of traders, tho 133,100 bu. being
largely in excess of those of a year ago,
while tho arrivals at four winttr-wheat
receiving points were nearly double thoso
of last year. Weather conditions vere im
ported as favoring harvesting operations
and the moving of tho crop, but very dry
In the Northwest, while crop advices from
that region were good, bad and Indifferent.
Early cables reported quiet markets abroad,
with Liverpool oil d and London '.id. Tho
world's shipments of i,"13,Oj; bu. overran
the estimate of traders, owing to an in
crease of almost Llw.WO bu. In ItusjU'a ex
ports, but was offset to some extent by tho
amount afloat, which decreased p'xi.voo bu.,
though last year the falling off amounted
to Liao.Oui) bu.
The buying reaction that so quickly fol
lowed the opening decline carried Sept. to
79Jic, and as high as 7;Si'i4c was bid, July
Belling at ..JiC to 7&?c and Aug. at TsUc.
This was, la a measure, brought about by
Liverpool rall)lng 5,d from Its earlier de
cline, and closing td up for the day. and tho
fact -that Paris waj c better. Berlin
showed no change and Buda-I'csth was on
ly He higher. Domestic clearances were on
ly 2S3.0M bu, and the visibto was increased
4aa0u0 bu. There was a decline to 7"-,c and
a rally to 7!k In Sept. and another drop to
TSHc. when the rtport of a splendid cibh
demand came to the rescue, ana this, being
backed by the statement that outsi-ao mills
were paying VttHio over fet-pt. tor No 2
rod, rave prices another whirl upward:.and
th close tur tJcpt. was close to tha best
price of the cay, at 'Ha sellers. July and
Aug. closed 5tc and fro higuer. at to-iC bid
respectively, 'lhe advance in faept. umount
ea to ho lot the aay.
Corn was extremely strong this morning
and actually helped wheat out of a lioiu
by unpaiuug tome of its atreii-r.h to tiit
gram, ihe ouljsh influences at the out
set were the uances of iiut, ury weather
out in Kansas and .Nebraska, and tue crop

and prices were retranted as being a shade better
than the close cf Ust week. Jiore cood mutton
sheep and lambs were wanted and several loads
of good stock sheep would also Had ready sale.

HOUSES Tlie forenoon yras iieolcd to the dl'
posul of a small supply of native horses. b-,t
the feature of the .lay rested in the sale of
about W branded Western ranse horses and
colts, which took place In the afternoon. Th
native hors-s were generally of a commonplace
character, with only an Inclusion here and there
of a good Eastern chunk. It was not a Mrf--
enoucli supply to work anv quotable change In
the situation of the trade. The range horse- sold
fairly well for thtlr quality. Carloads of medi
um to good mature horses sold at $21 to $2 per
head, plain, thin mixed bunches of mares and
gelding' at .12 tn Sis, and mixed jearllngs and
2-year-olds from S7.&J to $17.50.
MULES The opening of the new week did not
change tho aspect of the market. Practically n.v
mules were on the commission market, all of th.
half dozen car!.ads being consIgmd to the deal
ers direct. The only active "feature that at
tached to the trade trm tl.e fart that rack mules
continue to le boucht fcr the- llnxllsh army.
There Is, how-ev er. some little Eastern and South
ern demand apparent nt the outset, but It Is of
a limited nature and not calculated to create any
great Improvement In the movement.
