A GENERAL REACTION
ALL GRAINS CLOSE BETTER.
GRAIN MABKETS MADE A
TiTie.it Showed the Host Strength,
but Corn Was a Very Good
Second at the Close.
Monday. Am: 27. 1LXH).
Friends of T-.lgher frlce" lor grain had
much the licit of the nr$rumnt Mils niornlng,
rnd nt the close wero grntiflel by a distinct
nnd well-tstablished ad.ani-e In values in
nil grains except oats. wheat anil oats clos
ing with net rains of He to s" ft"1 .4 and.
fo respectively, while the above-named
closd from V to o decline. Tim tmprr
of the rpeculatlve sltuitlon In (Train to-day
was reactionary, hut as a rule th- move
ment of prices was Email, and during most
of the. day confirm to narrow limit?, the
result telns that the net gains for the day
we"-e fair or.ly all round. The news of the
day, and there ww the usual domestic and
cable adv-ic's, favored an active situation j
and better prices, especially where wheat
was concerned, end that grain became jo
strong as to affect com to a. greater or lrr
extent. Pit operattors in c. general tny
were quiet a Good part of the time and thy
situation wao without much utir and !io ex
citement, in fact, outside of the undorton
of strength there wan nothing out of th
ordinary to the situation.
Wheat showed undeniable strength to-day
ad made a higher pric-d record, thoturh it
was not ablo to fully recover the lw thnt
it met with yesterday. It wn i slow mar
ket at times, a hanc-ln-the-'n infl t-ort of nn
affair, there helns 11 tie or no stir nnd no
motemcat to prices of conwqueroe, Ihotish
as a rule the strength dlsplajed earlv in
the day continued almost without interrup
tion to the close, which was at a KOO'l
and substantial gain The friends of thl
cereal were favored this morninp bv quite
a number of bullish advices asid especially
that from abroad of a statistical nature.
AH the cable Information i f-ct was bull
ish. For lnstmce, the worlds shipments
for last week were reported at STiOO'O 5u .
whereas tho week before they were G.571.C03
bu.. and one ytar ago 6.173, bu , the fallms
off being chiclly due to th'e smaller Blaclc
Sea ehlpments, which amounted to l.PlO.O'K)
hu. compared with 2.5W.CO bu. tho week
before. There was also a decrease in the
nmount ntioat of uto.000 bu., though l.iit
ear the falllns off amouuttU to 2,b4l,0'X) bu.
Cabled wero unexijectedly strong and
showed that foreljm markets, eapecially
those of England, were not inclined to fol
low our decline of last Saturday, as Liver
pool opentd "hid lower and at onco reac:ed
Ud. On the other hand, the receipts here
of 151,000 bu., which were oifis) bu laiger
than those for tho tamo day a. week ago,
were above expectations, and there was
also an increase of JW,vij) bu. in local stocKS
for the week. Keceipts at tpring wheat
points wero wondetiully large, illnneapohs
alono receiving oer w) cars. Ihete wlio
the only unfavorable considerations te
celved this mornms and had no material
effect upon prices. The opening demand
was quiet, but there was cuUMueiabltr sell
ing pressure. Stpu. started off c higher
at 70ic und c betttr xor i.-ec at 5!se, the
latter eelimg off to lie und the former be
ing offered at 7iJs -More buU infurmatiun
in tho tbapu of cables was received and
Helped the market woaderlulij. iHerpools
closing cable was verj bullish, it reporting
a reaction irora the opening decline of -".ii,
making the close d oetter than last Sat
urday. Contluenuu inarkeis were not o
favorable. Pans closing U&se tuvance, but
Antwerp was unchanoa. and ari-n and
Buda-Pesth were lotn Ac lower, "i'he daj's
exports or flour .md wheat were larje. .u

Chicago. Aus. 27. The wheat market wn.s
strong the greater part of the se -Ion ami
closed -T.C higher than it did Situiday. The
damage to spring wheat bv the continuous
rains in the Northwest and luither indu-.i-tion-i
of a lfi-ciilng of the uitittr wheat
movement weie the chief .strengthening in
Huwices. Kegardfng the effect of the rain
on wheat in tho shock, the customer of a
Chicago commlsbion-houso, lu .1 mcss.Lgo
ho sent ordering the buing In of some
wheat he was short, remarked that now,
after it had been cut. It was growing bet
ter than at any previoui time thl season.
Shorts in corn gave further evidence of un
easiness nnd bought from others, who took
tholr risk, while longs looked on. Oats
were firm, without chango in prico at tho
cIoho. Provisions wero depressed by heav
iness of tho day's run of hogs.
The damage to tho wheat lying unitarkerl
in tho Northwest was the factor that off.et

expressed concerning the great injury to

Tlio bears still had the heavy aggregate
o! primary market receipts, with which to
hold the bulls in check, but these lost most
of their force when the result of last n eric's
enormous movement, or v. hit appeared as
such, was a smJl increase to the visible

had been made nil along by the bulls of
the deceptive character of the baro figures
filcen by thcmselces of thin j ear's primary
m.irket receipts. Duplication of the daily
large arrivals at Kansas City aro repeated
from day to day, so tnat tho actual aggre
gate movement Is only nominally heavy,
as such a small increase to tho commercial
stocks abundantly prove.
The total now in tho visible supply is J -K3.OC0
