CORN AGAIN LEADS
SCORING AN ADVANCE.
.WAS THE WHOLE THING IN
Wheat Made a Very Good Start,
but Subsequently Sold Off,
Closing at a Decline.
Wednesday. Aug. 13. 1900.
The local irrain markets to-day worn in
pretty much the same condition as they
were vesterday. Inasmuch as corn again
took the lead and made a sharp advance,
while wheat, after a good start, weakened
and lost all that It had gained early and
closed at a loss for the day. The pit trad
Ins to-dav w.as of exceedingly limited pro
portions nnd almost entirely professional.
The oarlv tendency of all the markets was
upward, and. led by corn, they made some
vcrv good net gains, hut the sencral situ
ation was tame, not to say stupid. Only a
mild decree of Interest appeared to be
taken by traders and a slow condition of
niTairs was had most of tho time. As was
slated, corn was again the leader and
hhowed unmistakable strength and bullish
ness, the ruling factors being weather and
crop conditions, bringing about a stiff ad
vance, which was well maintained and clos
ing tho market "ilc higher for tho chief
speculative option, while tho higher priced
ctf-oal was weaker and lower, that grain
losing He. Oats, in sympathy with corn,
closed Uc better for the day.
Ri-jccJ up by corn, which grain was very
strong and bullish, wheat this morning ear
ly showed strength of a mild form and
some, little evidence of life, but subsequent
ly was duller and more stupid than yester
day, and that is saying n good deal. The
movement of prices throughout the day
was triviul and insisnlficant. without any
important exception, and the aggregate vol
ume of business small. Besides the un
qoestloncl bvoming qualities of corn, there
were several otner Influences this morning
that exerted a better elfect and created
quite a Arm undertone during the opening
hours of the day's session. In the first
place there viere some signs of a let-up in
the movement to this market, the arrivals
hero amounting to 113,0) bu., which, al
though exceeding those of a year ago tj
W.a bu., were K..0CO bu. smaller than those
or last week at this time. ,, ,
Than there was a rather Insignificant in
crease In public stocks, due to the shipping
out of lOo.OOil bu. from Advance Hlevator
to Toledo. The bullish Influences were
very .ffectlvs and even over-'hadowed tne
bearish cabls. which reported Liverpool
opening Vd off in price. Other winter
wheat markets showed a decrease In re
ceipts and tho Northwest reported only ill
ears, agatnst 215 a wee!: ago, and 151 a year
ago, and as If the above was not enough,
the wceklv Government report stated that
heavy rains htd prevented a completion of
the spring wheat harvest, besides injuring
over-ripe grain standli.g in the shock as
well as In the field. The market made a
very encouraging start, the buying being
sufficient to advance prices Uc the Jtrat
half hour. Sept. opened at 71?sC. the same
as it closed vesterday and at once sold up
to TPJsc. "ad Dec. brought 7lsc.
"When buying orders were satisfied
a let-down to the opening figures took place
In Sept. nnd Dec. was ".IVit'Sc bid. Corn
continued to boom and Liverpool rallied and
closed but M,i off fcr the day, and London
was Vi to r.id higher. Pans and Buda
Pesth sent no cables, being closed, but Ber
lin was 'lie lower, and a private Hamburg
cable reported - marks decline and that
Germany hart raised a big crop. It was also
stated that Russia had reserves of two old
crops on hand and consequently a large
amount to export. The total clearances
for the day were 5J9,0j.) bu., including 230,
000 bu. from New Orleans and Galveston.
For soma considerable tlmo the market
was dead quiet and swung within a small
range, though the undertone was quite firm.
Sept. ranged from 71sc and "lsirtic bid.
back to 71Vic and up to 71-c. Dec in tho
meanwhile, selling at 74Ui!c. Near the
close, weakness was developed and prices
began to sag, the reasons being that tho
cash situation was not satisfactory and corn
failed to maintain its full strength. This
started selling and Sept. went down to and
closed iC lower for the day at 71Hc sellers
Dec was alt.o Uc off at 737gy74c Did, Aug.
isc down to 71Uc nominal and Oct. 4c lower
at 721i nominal.
Corn swum; Into line again as the leader
In speculative! grainB, a position that it held
all through the day to thu close, which,
while not right up at the top, was consider
ably higher than yesterday's close. Tho
first Incentive to strength was given by the
Government weehly report on weather and
crop condition!", which was so very bullish
as to start good active buying right at tho
send-off. In this statement it was said that
in jiarts or liissouri and Kansas late
planted corn had been materially damaged,
and in Nebraska, Iowa and Illinois had also
received injury. There were other sections,
however, tha.t showed an improvement and
promised Jlno crops, and It was stated that
tho bulk of the entire crop would be safe
from frost from Sept. 1 to 10. Receipts at
Western markets continue small at 2SS,009
bu., against KM.OuO bu. a year ago. -which in
cludes 34.400 bu. here, against 6-J.COO bu. last
year. Shipments were heavy at 1.1)02,009 bu.
nnd the export clearances were 597.000 bu.
The bullish feeling showed itself right at
the outset, when buying was lively, and as
there was but little for sale the early ad
vance was well maintained.
Sept. opened ?fifee higher at 37c, and at
once Bold up to 37-Uc. Dec on the other
hur.d, opened Uc lower at 32:c, and then
Quickly turned about face and went up to
asic OcL was offered at 35ic and shortly
atier 35c wa-j bid. There was no lot up to
this strength until late, when Sept. had
XSHc bid, which was lc higher than yes
tetdnv. Dec on the other hand did not go
abovo S3c. and OcL hold at 3CUc Then
the market commenced to show signs ot
weakness-, and prices let down, there being
Fome selling on fears of rain. At the close
there were sellers of Sept. at Tsfflc advance
for the day nt Sic. of Oct. at Vic advance
at 33&C, and of Dec at 1-Wc better at 32'i
332c. Aug. ulosed nominally He up at 37ic,
and year unchanged at 32?4C.
Tho receipts of oats at Western primary
markets this morning were reported at 801,000
bu., against 670,000 bu. one year ago. or
which amount 1:6.40-0 bu. were received here,
against 33.G0O bu. last year. The shipment.
were 33S.000 bu. and the exports 10,000 bu.
Tho great strength and bulishness shown by
corn had its effect upon wheat, which was
also strong and 2Hc was bid for Sept., and
22Vic for Oct., but there was no trading and
tho market closed at these figures, with
Aug. nominal at 21xjc and May at 24 sellers;.
Tho weather conditions were Generally very
unfavorable :aat week, says the Government
vrekly bulletin. Very Hull plowing for fall
needlnc -was done. In portions of Missouri and
Kansas, corn, mora especially late planted, has
been materially injured and the crop has sus
tained damage in Nebraska, Iowa. Illinois, al
though In Iowa the bulk Is unharmed and well
advanced toviard maturity, while tn Illinois a
laico yield In ttlll promised. The outlook In
Indiana and "iVcstem Ohio continues very prora
lsll.g. but In Central and Southeastern Ohio and
throughout ttt Middle Atlantic States, corn has
mstalned serious injury as a result of drought
and the lnter.fe heat. In tho principal States of
tho corn belt the reports lndlrito that the bulk
of the crop will be safe from frost by Scut. 1
to 10. and that the late crop will be matured one.
to two weeks later. Heavy rains in the principal
irrlrar wheat States prevented the completion
ir tho sprint- wheat harvest and caused Injury
to the overrll standing grain, as well as to that
In shock and stack.
The exports of wheat and flour during first
month of the season of la-w-WOl were equiva
lent to 11.770.:ffl0 bu.. compared with 14.S0I.O41 bu.
for srmc moith last year, 11.S37.467 bu. In IMS.
y.317.S73 bu. In 1897 and 12.10S.460 bu. In n.
Ccrn exports last month were 15.fi0.7S4 bu..
CKalnst 17.4S1 S45 bu. for same month last year;

or barley 392.2W bu.. asalnst 1.1.72791 bu. There
were also shipped last month 35,064 bbls. com
meal and 6,.ii,,B17 lbs. oatmeal. For the seven
months endinir July 31 corn exports were 109,
I91.US bu., airalnst 107.210.CS9 bu. for same period
Secretary of Aericulturo Wilson It credited
with the fftntemtnt that the consumption of
wheat per esplta In the United States was 3.41
fcu. In 1891. and that this year the average con
fumod per capital will bo nearer 7 than 0 bu.
This "nearer 7 than 6 bu." looks to be a llttlo
exacscratcd. to put It mildly, but then It is not
certain thu Secretary made such a statement.
As 100,000 bu. No. 2 red wheat was with
diawn from the Advance Elevator yesterday
for shipment to Toledo, the total public stock
of wheat In St. uis only Increased 1.000 bu.
dLrlr.c oast 24 hours. C H. Albers, president
of the Advance Elevator Company, says 100.000
bu. more Is to be loaded out. they having- had to
ell the whet to make room for that coming to
Durlnr the seaoon Just ended tho shipments
of rye from exportlnc countries exceeded 40.
000.060 bu.. ot which only 2.C94.000 bu. was sup
plied by America.
Schtrartz-Dupee wired that their European
advices are that Russia had accumulated good
wheat reserves from last two years' crops and
will have a larger amount to export this year.

Wheat Lost About i Fourth Cent
and Oats Gained Three-Eighths
Provisions Held Their Own.
rhlrajjo. Aug. 1.7. Kxcept' that corn was
inclined to act In a somewhat unconven
tional manner, there was little to arousu
Interest in tho day's proceedings on 'change.
While llie longs in corn have In all prob
ability no intention of running a corner,
they, being well concentrated, are In a
good position to give the shoiis a warm
squeeze, due to the overs-old condition of
that market for Sept. delivery. The price
rose from n7;'sc to ."'Jc, hut Dually reacted
to SSe, or -Tic above yesterday's closing
figures. Dec. corn was .'ic lower than
Sept. Wheat lost '.sfiVic. and oats gained
Whent opened tame without the anima
tion that accompanies a market holding
large interests for a number of people.
Values were steady, however, at the com
mencement in spite of reports from Kng
land and France that they were having
splendid weather for harvest. Liverpool
wheat futures were Vid lower when thu
trading started, with no change in spot
grain. Rumors wero current on tho floor
of a heavy aggregate of export sales having
been made yesterday, much more than was
reported. Such reports could not be con
firmed, and the traders preferred to await
tangible evidence before taking them into
Corn ruling strong was of some assistance
to the bull side of wheat, but they got llttlo
encouragement from the foreign demand,
during the forenoon nt least, advices from
the seaboard being generally to the eilect
that while tr.ere was no lack of bids they
were for tho most part at unworkable
prices. The tece-ipts In the Northwest were
again heavy enough to keep down the bull
isn sentiment, although the latter struggled
to break through because of the shipments
from Western points being as noticeably
heavier than laot year's as wero tho re-
The primary western markets receipts
were l,i.27,0?0 ou., compared with 479,000 bu.
the year before, while the shipments from
the same were SSl.OOO bu., compared wltn
only iMI.OuO bu. shipped from the same points
last year. Kanms City received 237,0ui) bu.
and shipped 344,OuO bu. Tno day's clear
ances liom New Orleans and Galveston
were 204,000 bu. and 214,0-JO bu. respectively,
showing that Kansas, like a reckless spend
thrift, is burning the candle at both ends.
That, of course, is the chief present conten
tion of the bulls, who are patiently waiting
for the Kantas movement to burn itself ouL
Chicago received SOS carp, Minneapolis and
Duluth 213, compared with 3S1 at the two
latter points tho year before.
Tho auvices from the Southwest pointed
to tho probable early lessening of the move

Secretary Wilson's prediction ot dollar

Sept. wheat opened at from 74Hc up to
74?ifi74!sC and closed at 74c, or VtfVic low
er than It did yesterday. The higncst it
renched was 7oic and it did not sell below
Shorts got badlv twisted and were made
to feel that the se'lllng of old corn short be
cause of a fine prospect for tho next crop
was like counting your chickens before they
aro hatched, malting your hare soup beforo
you catch your hare, eating your cake be
lore you get it, or In any other way acting
urecinltatelv on an uncertainty. Sm.-ul
stocks and a large shortage for next
month's delivery, with farmers' reserves at
low ebb, were the reasons for the bullish
ness in corn and tho anxiety of tho Sept.
Sept. corn, the clos.ng price of which yes
terday was 37:4c, opened with buyers at
from STTic to 3Sc, and 3SVic was paid Inside
of a few seconds, closing at 3S'4c. Local re
ceipts wero only 141 cars, with to-morrow's
lecelpts placed at only 115. Atlantic port
clearances wero 507,000 bu.
Oats were strong, but not more than or
dinarily active and the strength waa gen
erally the result of the rise in corn. Com
pared with yesterday's closing figures, Sept.
oats rested with a net gain of US?c, and
only l-16o below the highest point they
touched. The rungo was from 2lc to 22J
22ic. closing at 22c, against 21'c22-14c the
day before. Local receipts were 349 cars and
the estimato for to-morrow was 445. Ex

of buvlng orders in O.-t. and Dec. credited

to be considerable long oats held by Cudahy.
A Arm feeling was In for barley nt un

The market waa firm and Uc hlsher at

light offerings and the good speculative de
mand. There was some demand for cash
for shipment, but nothing was reported

Flaxseed, previous to the approach of the

but on Hearing the end hud lost most of
this early gain and finished Irregular with
a loss of $4W-7c a Kam of lc- The sharp

by shorts, but after they had been sup

as compared with those of the previous
duy. Shipments amounted to 4 cars.
Timothy uml Clover Secdn.
Timothy was strong and 15c above last
night's advanced prices. This sharp rise In
values was caused by light offerings and
good demand. Cash seed was also much
higher than on the previous day, selling
from S3.50 to $4. The firm feeling In casa
was caused by the belief that the year a
crop would be light. Sept. ranged from
$3.53 to 53.65 and Oct. the same. Receipts
were 3C3.100 ami shipments 201.42G lbs.
The only S1311 of life in the clover seed
market was when SJ.25 was bid for Oct.
Outside of that the market remained nom
inal, without trading. Receipts were 22,
1S5 lbs. and shipments 67,852 lbs.
The provision market ruled irregular, lard
showing good strength on improved cash
demand. ioik was almost neglected and
ribs were lower on aggressive selling by
tmaller packers. Trade to-day was almost
entirely 'professional, but in spite of deter
mined eliorts to break prices, the market
holds its own very wed. There Is a larga
short Interest that could easily oe stamped
ed, and the pos.tlon of supply and uemand
favors bujers. It is estimated that 22,000
hogs will be received to-morrow.

Southern Cattle Trade-Still another liberal run
ot Southern cattle materialized, the 133 cars
arriving to-day brlnplng the week's receipts so
far up to 4S1 cars, of the day's offerings 87 cars
came from the Indian Territory, SO from the
Bouthern border line of Kansas and 16 curs from
Terns. Besides these about 1. tars held over
from late yesterday were disponed if. The hold
ings were but fairly medium and there were more
plain to Inferior offerings than better kinds. The
early trade, when the most deslruol-; cattle wero
sold, was the strongest, and ome sales then were
considered nearly steady, but most of the trading
was dore on an easier lo 10-cent loner basis.
Calves found a quick demand at firm prices.

lambs sold steady, but common and cull lambs
were very slow and draggy. The stocker trade
showed no material change; except that it did not

HORS133 A fairly liberal run was on the mar
ket and the demand comprised good constituen
cies from the Iiibt. a moderate amount of activ
ity on Southern account and a small local In
quiry. "While the quality was not as good as the
aemnnd warranted, a respectable proportion of
medium to good chunks were available and a
fen- extra chunks that were- t.oken for export.
The showing of drivers better than the ordinary

little. If any different from the basis of last

day market was limited. Although no change of
consequence has transpired In the market since
the week opened, sellers report that the best
smooth bunches with size have sold at reasonable
figures, though not with nny urgency In the de
mand. The small, common and tbln classes have
on the contrary been slow and dull and have been
hard to move. The dealers of late have not had
sufficient trade from the East to Justify an active
movement In the commission market and the
fact that now contracts for British mules have
not been forthcoming has added to the quietness
of the situation.

There was considerable Irregularity shown in
cotton to-day. the situation being chiefly gov
erned bv the crop advices and the sharp selling
and buvlng which took place on these caused
prices to fluctuate freely, but the final figures
ui New York were at an advance of 6 to 13
lolr.ts for all months except Aug.. which was 2
points olf. Liverpool declined sharply on Xeill
Bros.' bearish crop report, and spots there
showed 5-32d loss for the day.
Over some portions of the central belt cotton
has Improved slightly, says the bureau weekly
retort, although ru-t and shedding are gener
ally reported, and the crop needs rain In some
fictions of Mississippi, while suffering from ex
cessive moisture and lack ot cultivation in parts
of Louisiana. In the Carolines. Georgia and Ar
l.'aisos the condition of cotton has deteriorated
materially, premature opening beinc; extensively
reported from the Carollnas. In Northern Texas
cotton has made favorable progress, but else
where in that State It needs dry weather and Is
makinc too rank growth. Some picking has been
done over the southeastern portion of the cotton
belt. and. while cotton Is openlnc In Southwest
ern Texas, picking will not be general In that
State for two or three weeks.

New Tork. Aug. 15. The market for cotton fu
tures opened barely steady at prices 1SS points
loner, and ruled generally weax durlnir the af
ternoon, owing to Dear aggression and absence
of anything line Dull advice. The leading sellers
yesterday started tn on the call to depress
prices further and dislodged a lot of weak long
stuff. Cables were sized up as of bearish, aver
age, the crop- intelligence was encouraging- as a,
wnole. while the weather reports told of needed,
rains In the eastern belt and tolerably clear
conditions west of the Mississippi Valley. At the
lowest point or tne zorenoon prices were 623
points under the closing of last night, makin;
the net loss since Monday night &ffs points.
At noon shcrts began to manifest uneasiness,
owing to the apparent oversold condition of the
market and tho belief that the long Interest had
been pretty well eliminated. From a feeling of
nervousness shorts subsequently became posi
tively frightened and were soon In full rout. ..
Covering was stimulated by a forecast ot dry ,
weather over the entire belt to-night and to-
morrow and the predictions for continued HghJ
receipts. On the upturn the forenoon loss was
not only recovered, but a considerable portion ot
yesterday's decline was wiped out. During- the
balance of the session the market was extreme
ly feverish, with a tolerably firm undertone.
