Fluctuations Were Narrow and "Xo

Aside From Ease.

Wednesday Sept II. lOuO.
Concerning the general situation and the
movements In the various urali! market,
eliirlng the day. the-ie is very llttlo that is
interesting to Iw said. Doth a rt cards tho
the extent of the pit dealings m 'change
an'l fluctuations In prices the speculative
situation as a whole was nearly a repeti
tion of the dull, narrow and professional
conditions that have been witnessed fre
quently of late. An undertone of vveaknc
succeeding that of the strength wltnecd
csterday was a feature throughout the en
tire day. One cereal alone, showed some
thing like strength, and that was oats,
which showed Rains of -5c to ,c for the
day, hut the two leading grains, wheat and
corn, eased off, the former closing with
lossM of from c to ic. This unsatisfac
tory condition of affairs was in a measure
due to a lack of speculation, owing to wire
interruption, caused by the recent storm,
preventing the receiving of news, tele
graphic communication with various points
In the East and North, to a considerable
extent, being either cut off entirely or
seriously interrupted. There were other
unfavorable Influences, however, not least
among which was tha tame markets . very
whtro and the extremely lisht speculative
interest shown throughout the 'day.
Wheat to-day made no headway towards
higher prices. On the contrary, the up
waid movement received a cneck and prices
took a step backwards. The evldem.es of
increasing interest In speculation, which
have been encouraging featuns of the past
ilav or two, in this market, hero and else
where, was noticeably absent in to-days
deallngs.and In their stead came a dull, nar
row and whollv professional market.
J-argel as a result or the general dullness
prevailing, the movement in prices was
much of the time of a iltful and uncertain
character, with a down te.ndtn.-i, still there
were other causes that contributed to the
tame end. Among these were the receipts
of spring and winter wheat, which still
continue iarge. but are expected to show a
increase in the near future
The initial cables reported Liverpool -vl
lugher. but London stated that btive' were
indifferent. On the other hand unfavorable
weather conditions in the Northwest had
eiiapieared. being replaced by clear, cool
weather; et the .Minneapolis market held
tat lemarkably well. There was a slight

and bear conditions was not conducive to

giesslve, and as this was the case elsewhere
a dull, slow market characterized the situ i
tion throughout the day. The closing IJver

vas '-d higher for the da.v. l'aris was 34o

clearances were small at SVl.oxj bu. There

market continued to sag and Dec. went oif

the setslon Dec. went up to only 74V('7i1iC

The cash situation heie was far from being
satislactorv. No. 2 red declining to':c un

taken for export at the seaboard imparted a
little better tone near the close, and Dec.

In the Southwest were still heavy mid

west. Clearances or wheat and Hour from

to 74se-, which latter point It reached alHtut
an hour from the end or the session Some
aecdesl ucslstance came to the bulls by the
news froai New Yolk that boatloads hail
been sold for export, causing Oct. to react
from 7l'c to 74V. the market closing with
buers at 744. a loss on the day of Vti-c.
Corn openeil at -Uerda 's closing prices,
but the trade was very slow and tne weak
ness developed by the wheat market affect
ed corn to a slight extent. There were no
new features to the trade, llecclvers sold
some Sept. corn In j the pit against their
eountry purchases of eiri. Much or the
.small business was elnnu in changing Sept.
to Oct. and more distant deliveries. The
premium of Sept. over Oct. vvas j.enerally
lne. and there wast much to change, but
the orders seemeel limited to 14c between
the present and next month. Dee. sold at
from 4"(.c discount under Oct. The local re
ceipts of corn nuniltcresd s)s cars, and ."CO
were estimated for to morrow. The dlttlculty
of telegraphic communication nitn theKit
hindered the brokers who do the shipping
business. Oct. ope-ncd al from 23c to SJc.
and from that sold gradually down to Ssc-jC.
There wns some little rally after that, but
no life In the business-. New York reported
SU boatloads sold for export and lJOf) bu.
were fcld here for shipment. The closln?
price for Oct. corn vvas Csc, or c below
csterda's tinal figures.
The market was lllelrss except for a few
minute's when wheat was running down like
a watch with a broken spring, when torn?
j-calpers had long oats for sale ami de
pressed the market u little more than It
otherwise would have been. Changing Sept.
nt:i Oct. holdings to Dec. was the charac
ter of much of tho limited business. Iaicai
receipts were 242 cars, with 4'vi estimated
for to-morrow, that Indicated addition to the
receipts causing some of the weakness that
prevailed. The exitort clearances from the;
senbontd amounted to GTsOiM bii Oct. oats
stnrteii at sc and declined to :itc the clos
ing price being the lower figures. Vessel
room was taken for shipment of 4:000 bu.
The rye market eased off a little in sym
pathy with the weakness of the leading
market w heat. The market at all times
vvjs very tjulet and dull, with only one trade
in options. Holders nf grain were sUd to be
stubborn and not inclined to let go or thVIr
possessions at present prices. Offerings
from the country were light, and In some in
stance's damp, and said at a smart reduc
tion. Dec. closed at oSc, a loss of c since
tho previous close. No. 2 on track sold nt

Barley was strong at almost former quo
tations, with the excerption or cboico malting
grain, which vvas said to be about lc high
er. Although the market was firm. It vvas
not active, owing to moderate offerings,
which were quickly absorbed. Malting
grain, poor to choice, averaged from 40c to
M)r. with feed lots selling Irom 38c to Xfc.
Receipts were 67 cars. Shipments amounted
to 3.7t7 bu. There were no exports out of
