THE REPUBLIC: SATUED'AY. OCTOBER 13, IDOtf.
A CHANGE OF FRONT
AND GENERAL ADVANCE.
"A Distinctly Stroiis Tone Was Dis
played iii All of the Markets,
Frldav . Oct. 12. 19".
Tho Ions-delayed and fondlv hoped-for re
action In speculate e grain i allies took, place
to-day. greatly to the gratification and en
couragement of those traders who have
been friendly to tho different jtralns throiich
out their troubles and dilllcultlcs of tho past
two weeks or more. All the markets de-
eloped a distinctly strong tone, and in par
ticular corn, which was Indeed the leader
In this reject and served to Influence other
Grains for the better. Some liesitan-y was
shown early bj these Kralns. but beforo thi?
end of the session was reached tho bulls
v ere In control, and had things pretty much
their own way. The speculative situation
was slow and backward at first, and It
was found to be a somewhat hard matter
to work prices up, ono reason belnsj the
mixed feeling; existing nnd the fact .Jut
tho news was not altogether favorable.
1-ater. however, there was a very decided
change for the bitter In many was. and a
most emphatic betterenicnt in values nil
round, the speculative markets one and all
closing largely higher, and in raot Instances
right at the top for the daj. Speculation,
in consequence o: tills change, was more
activo and broader, and the volume of pit
transaction larger than they have been
tor mail a day.
Weakness In wheat has been the pilnclpal
feature so long ihat the change for tho
better to-daj. slight as it was, greatly en
couraged those who have been llv.mj in
hopes of Just such a change, but tlie could
hardly realize it. when It came. The bend
off was by no mcui.s one to encourages the
bulls, there being much less disposition
shown to buy than on previous t!us, .end
more of a desire to sell, which was just the
opposite, to the way this market has opened
up heretofore. This was, in part, duo to
the nature of tho early advices, ard a feel
ing that had evidently developed over mht,
that there was no good in uie long slue n
wheat. 2 he nrst to discourage tile trade
was the reported loss of 'id at .Liverpool
and which was attributed to the Argen
tine shipments ef S44,tw bu.. as eoiupa.-ed
with 6trl,W0 bu. a week ago, and LlitVvo bu.
a jear ao. Then lolloped the posting of
the receipts here of 71.o" bu. against
36.W0 bu. last j ear, and which were
fully as bearish as the cables,
fchlpments were liberal, however, reaching
i2.7v0 bu. On the strength of the above the
opening for Dec was J.c lower, at74'iC, and
at. 784c for May. There was a quick recov
ery from this, owing to shorts buving most
of the wheat thrown upon the mark-:, rnd
iea rallied to 7418.c ana May to 7ic Other
domestic markets did not appear so weak, as
St. lyou'.s, Minneapolis showing considerable
strength, receipts there nnd at Duluth be
ing only 5e4 cars, as against 1.1S4 one jcar
ago, and there were Indications of rains In
that section. Tie little reaction did not last
long, weakness again coming to the burf.ice
and selling resulting that sent Dec. down
to 74l;c sellers, and .May to VsMjr&fcc, with
out a buver coming Into H.glu. About this
time th- strength shown b corn began to
be felt, and this, wttb the tact that a lcai
lng exporter was in the pit buving rinat
and left brought about a quick reaction and
a full recover' In price:., Dec. going as high
as ilJiofl'-jc. and May to ib-iC
La to cables were not In the least encour
aging from a bull standpoint, Liverpool
mowing a loss of 'id. Paris He. and Ant
werp ?tc Berlin was unchanged, but Buda
Pcstlt tso higher. Kxport clearances of
flour and wheat w era moderate at 416,000 bu.,
and a cable received stated that the Argen
tine crop was In excellent condition. The
market again let down on these, and went
off to Tic for Dec, which was tho low
point of the day, but May did not go be
low TSc. The market continued to Im
prove as the session drew to a close, the
buving for long account being better, nnd
the little selling was by the bears. The
bulls showed most confidence and were
further encouraged tl the good cash de
mand at Chicago, where 342.W0 bu. No. 2
hard ana I62.W!0 Du. .No. 2 red had been sold
for export and milling, while the seaboard
reported 17 loads for export. The week's
clearances of Hour and wheat wcra reported
at 4.232.0UO bu.. against 4.4&vbi) bu. last
week, and 5,266,000 bu. a jear ago. Tho
snorts commenced to grow uneasy over tr.o
strong showing made late, and their good
buying helped advance the market mater
ially aurlng the last half hour. Dec finally
brought 7Sejc, and closed ?jc better for tho
day at that sellers. Oct. wound up tho
session ?c better also at TJHc nominal, and
Slay was ?ic higher at 735,c buvers.
There was more real well-sustained
strength shown by corn during to-day than
has been witnessed for weeks past- This
strength was followed by largely higher
prices, and was also the cause of largely in
created speculative Inquiry and a better
ment In pit business. This Improved con
dition In corn was brought about by tho
statement that the jleld this jear and the
supplies in sight and in the country were
smaller than last year. Tho light move
ment from country points to market and
tho large shipments also had a good effect.
Primary receipts to-day were reported at
ES3.000 bu., against S21.0U0 bu. last jear. In
cluding 66,100 bu. here, against C3.5 bu. a
year ago. Shipments on the other hand
were 24LGU0 bu., and tho exports 277,000 bu.
from the Atlantic and Gulf ports. Tho
market hero opened up in the most encour
aging manner for Dec, that option being
H'c higher than last night's closing at
331c. and was then bid up to 3li,ijfiic with
Interruption. May sold $tc higher at So'ic
The market held up remarkably well dur
ing the balance of the session, the advanco
In wheat and Increased speculation giving
good support. There was also a brisk de
mand on the part of the short Interest, and
Oct. sold at SijC, and closed at that, or jo
higher for the day. For Pec 34fj"Jc was
bid. and closed llc better at 3l,c asked.
Tear sold lc higher at 34&C and May was
o better at STa-jc bid. The exports for the
week were 2,S7J,jiiO bu.. against 2.361,000 bu.
last week, and 3,837,000 bu. last j ear.
Like other grains, there was a noticea
ble Improvement In the market for oats,
both as regards speculation and values, the
former being more active and tho latter
higher, Doc. selling at 22?,c to 23c. closing
at the latter, and May at S4ijc to 2lc,
which was unchanged from jesterday.
Oct. was nominally ,c higher at 22c
."Western market receipts were 451.000 bu ,

ceived 44.400 bu.. against 6L2rt) bu. last jear.
