THE EEPTJBLIC: .THURSDAY, AUGUST 9, 1900.
AND ALL GRAINS DECLINED.
CABLES A2JD EEGETTTS AF
Speculation at the Declines Was
Slow and Drajrdn and Mar
kets Tame All Day.
f Office Republic.
Wednesday, Aug S. 11-00.
The influential conditions governing wheat
and com were changed from thove of a lmll
I h cliarai tcr to tho--e of a bearish and the
attitude of these two markets and the
courso ol prices was changed completely,
sn all-round let down In prices t iking
place and dull and slow trading being the
lule throughout the day.
Even in tho dullest times such distrcsMng
Iv --low and sluggish mirkets as those of
to-day ha o s-elilom been ci)crienc -d. Pjiec-
lilation stagnant and for lon,r period
the pit on 'change nas almost entirely de
serted. 11 the bpeculative grain in irlcets
of the country wore atfeeted .Uiko in tins
icspect. and it w is seldom that an thing
of a redeeming mturo came to relieve tho
dead and monotonous conditions of speculi
tinn. To add to tho unsatlsfactorv condition
of affairti. tho markets were, one and all,
alllieted with weakness and a lower range
of prices was established right at tho out-s-et
in bath wheat nnd corn, ono being as
badly oil' as the uti'cr. There were few
changes in value, buch fluctuations as there
wcro coming at long: intervals, and being
b'n.ill and narrow, giving tlie professional
j.calpcr& few opportunities to make a turn.

Asido from the general w.eaKnc-'s dls
llajeil :uid tho let-down in values., thero
vas little tint vai of imporunce or of
j.encral sigmilcanco developed during to
ilaj'b wheat dt-alings. The speculative dull
ness, which has been more or less a feature
of late, was interisafled, and the feeling of
v.eakncss which took poases-ion of tins
grain right at the OutbCt grew more and
more pronounced as the day advanced and
the selling out of long stuff continuui. The
influences that created the bull market ve
terday created a bear one to-Ja. These
veie the Engil&h cablet, winch were higher
jesterday on reports of bad harvesting
weather, and lowtr thib morning on an im
provement in these conditions. Liverpool
and London were -d oil at tno opening,
me former going oft that much more. I'ol
luwing theso aderse cables came the post
ing of moro heavj receipts here and at
otlier v inter wheat points, together with
increased stocks at this point. The arrivals
lor the day here vvero J01,b bu . or J9.3I0
Ini in excess of last Wedne-ida, and 133.SJO
bu. larger than those of a vear ago, tho lo
cal stocks the past twenty-four hours hav
ing increased over 150,O) bu. The early
weakness was increased by the tact that
outside markets reported large recupts and
were lower and the fact that foreign buing
appeared to have let up. as. there were no
acceptances reported trom Europe on list
liignt's offers. There was no great quantity
if whrat for sale at the start, though it
e.ime out far moro freely later.
'I lie opening for fcept. was at 'sfi'iC de
cline, at T2e sales, but, as the buving was
n little better than the selling, that op
tion at once reacted to and sold at 7c. and
72j7c was bid. Dec., in tho meantime,
sold atc lower, at T5'-c. Lite Liverpool
cables showed that a rally had taken place
there, as that market closed onlv Ud lower
for the daj, while Paris was up 1c to lliC
on bad weather in Trance. Antwerp was
also up sc, but Uerlin was off f'sc, and
Juda-lcsth sc Kxport cleaiances were
Minll, at STK.CmO bu.. but Chicago was out
with a bullish estimate, making the jield
of the three Xorthw estern States 73.000 .(XK)
bu. On the strength of the aforementioned
elides, Sept. advanced to 72c, and Dec. to
T"ic. Subsequently the market ruled very
heavy, the trade showing little or no in
clination to go in extensively, though Chi
cago reported sales of 200,u00 bu. Xo. 1
Northern and EO.OO bu. Xo. 2 hard for ex
port, and Xew York of C2 to SO loads taken
it the seaboard. The weakness continued
and Sept. sold off to 72c, back to 728c and
llnally closed at c lower for the day at
72c asked. Dec sold down to 73c, and
closed the day at H,c decline, at ToVjC. Oct.
closed ,e off, at 73'8e asked, and Aug. was
nominally 5gC lower, at 72c,

Weather conditions still continue to enter
freely into tho course and actions of the
local corn situation, and this morning were
the ruling Influence. The condition? were
weakening In their effect, rains having fall
en in Kansas that, while not heavy, were
sufficient to do away with fears of hot winds
for the present, at least. The weekly Gov
ernment report stated that although rains
were neeaea. it was oni late corn in the
Central Mississippi and Missouri States that
was likely to be injured. The response at
Liverpool to our advance of yesterday was
feeble. bing onlv 6d. and it eased off from
that and closed Ud off for the day. Heceipts
at Western markets were onlv C72.O00 bu ,
ugainst 6w,000 bu. one vear ago, including
E1,2j0 bu. here, against 39,400 bu. last vear.
Shipments were 731.000 bu. and the exports
2iG,000 bu. There was a pressure to sell right
at the opening, and Sept. opened 'c oft at
S7Hc and sagged down until offered at 2c.
Dec in the meantime sold at 33Uc to TBc.
and year had sellers at C3'ic The market
was heavy and dull all through the dav, al
though late in the day It was reported that
liO loads had been worked for export at the
seaboard, but this hid little effect. It is true
that Sept. did manage to get up to S7c but
it soon fell back to and closed 34c off for the
day at Si?ic Dec and j car closed Uc low er
at 33yc asked. Oct. brought CCc and Au;j.
was nominally c lower at 37c.
As was to have been expected, the specu
lative situation in oats was weaker in svm
jiathy with corn and wheat. Th cash mar
ket wai also easy and the speculative trad
ing dull and without special feature. The
Government report Bald that the thrashing
i.o w going on Indicated good jields gener-nllj-.
Sept. sold c off at 21c. at which it
closed. There were bids of 21Mc for Oct.,
ZPSc for Dec and 23; for Mav. but no ell
r at those rates. 'Western market receipts
were SS5.000 bu.. against 5S3,000 one vear ago.
St. Louis receipts were C1,".W bu , against
35 600 bu. last jear. Shipments were 2C7.VJ0

Chicago, 111, Atig. S The IcailitiK motive
for yosterdav'a advance in vvtient havliiK
been removed, the market ruled heavy and
closed nt a decline of c a bu. The boister
ous weather in i:n-rland had abated, leaving
hope of the British farmers heintr able to
secure some of their diminutive wheat crop
in (jood condition, but the demand from
that country for American wheat was suf-
ticient to absorb about 730,000 bu In ad
dition to tlie previous daj's enormous pur
ch.ibc.s. Corn ruled heavy and lost ".fi'sC
Oats declined ic to He pork 10c, lard ifec,
and ribs l'ic.
A decline of ""id a cental in price of wheat
futureb at Liverpool before trading; com
menced hero turned the current of specula
tive sentiment once more to the tie.tr side
and caused the openimr liKures to show a
sharp decline. Sept., which closed yester
day at 76ic, started at from 737sc down to
"Ir-iC, with a few- trades at 7:"i'g73'4c about
tho same time. The decline thus started
enabled the working for shipment of 100,0(0
bu. Xo. 1 Northern spring; wheat and 50,ll0
bu. Kansas hard.
It was explained from Liverpool that the
lower prices resulted from prospects of
clear and warmer weather throughout
Great Britain. An estimate of the condition
of FJiigllsh wheat as it was Aujr. 1 mad it
SOS, compared with &U 3 the month previous.
The Missouri report for August gave the
averafre yield per acre at 1G bu. Trie num
ber of cars inspected into store at Chicago
was "MO, while Minneapolis and Duluth ic
ceived 245 cars, against 1-1 tho previous
The aggregate of the da's receipts at
"Western primary markets was 1.24J.000 bu ,
while last ytar's were only B33.0C0 bu., but
the dav's shipments from the s line points
were Im),C10 bu , against only 221,000 bu. tho
vear before. Clearances fiom the Atlantic
seaboard of wheat and flour wero equal to
120.000 bu. Duluth reported a continuance
ot the previous dav's good shipping de
mand, and thtre weie numerous dispatches
received here trom the L"ast, making in
clines with a view to business, but heavi
ness of domestic receipts strengthened the
bears' position and gave them courage to
press their offerings.
Of 217 carloads received at Minneapolis',
59 were winter wheat and 07 new spring
wheat. Pans quotations were up to tho
equivalent of lc to l'4c a bu. tor wheat
futuies, and Antwerp Sc a bu. The advanco
it Paris was reported as being caused by
unfavorable weather, and Liverpool, on
such Information, recovered all but d of
its early decline.
Although an excellent demand for wheat
for shipment developed here, the result
of which w.is the taking of about lOO.OuO
bu of hard Kansas wheat, and 2U0.C00 bu.
No. 1 Northern here and SO boatloads at
New York, the price for future delivery
steadily declined, and Sept. near the end

"A fair business has been transacted In the
wool market during the last week. The demand
cannot as et be considered as very excessive
consumers are still conservatively Inclined Tliev
are gauging their purchases in accordance with
actual requirements and are still disposed to do
a good bit of chopping'before finally purchasing.
The manufacturers looked for weak spots, but
did not succeed In finding them. The tendency
of prices Is firm, and holders ln some Instances
have been able to get slightly better prices In
some llres than they could have obtained two or
three weeks ago. While the new- light-weight sea
son has not started In as actively as somo an
ticipated, the present season continues to de
velop In the West, notably In Montana, there
has been more activity ln new wools lately at

heavicr than on the previous day. Ship

exports out of New York.
Owing- to the continued enlargement ot
country offerings to arriv i, the flaxseed mar
ket ruled heavy and lower. The decline was
from lc to 2!c for futures and 2c for cash
seed. Cash flaxseed void at .i1. Auk.
opened and closed at $1 27i Sept. began at
$1.27, reacted to $1.26'-'. and went still lower

local run -was 24 000 head, but the total In
the West was C2.C0O, against 60,300 the cor
responding day last year. The demand for
cash meats was good, but tho absence of
speculative interest in the products was
against the bulls. Sept. pork closed 10c

Telegraph Companies to Appeal
Chicago. Aus. S. The Western Union and
the Postal Telegraph companies will Jointly
appeal to the Federal Court for a dissolu
tion of the permanent injunction granted
jesterday by JudRe AV. A. Henry of Kansas
City to the Christy-Streat Commission
Company and the Grain Brokerage Com
pany of Kansas City, which restrains tho
telesrranh companies from rpfnaint!- tn ii...
nLsh them with market quotations of the
Chicago Board ot Trade.
A conference of the attorneys of the) two
telegraph companies was held to-day, and
It was resolved to co-operate ln tha fight
against the injunction. Meanwhile, both
companies, according to the telegraph offi
cials, will ignore that part of the Injunc
tion which compels them to furnish the.
quotations, on the ground that to do so
would compel them to break the State laws.
As neither company now furnishes ticker
service of the Chicago markets, tho only
way quotations could be obtained by tho
telegraph companies, the officials say, would
be by stealing private information front
messages passing over their wires, thU3 di
rectly -violating tne criminal code.
