SUMMARY OF ST. LOUIS MARKETS.
All eralns worked lower In the local market yesterday. Foreign prices. whl"h xere
believed to have been manipulated Thursday, went back to the normal level and outside
traders mere mostly on the selling side Receipts here and ut other primary points were
heavy and offerings were very free throughout the session. 'Weakness was largely due to
favorable crop reports from nearly all sections of the winter-wheat belt. Northwestern
points added to the bearish feeling by reporting good conditions for the seeding of spring
wheat. There was no apparent professional interest on the buying side and most of the
trading In wheat was In the hands of scalpers and small traders, with the -olume or busi
ness below the recent average.
Corn opened fairly well, but eased off on light receipts nnd decreased cash demand.
Toward the end of the session there was a rather harp slump, m line with wheat.
July wheat opened 'ic up and closed fi'ic off.
July corn opened sc off and closed lfelHc efl.
July oats closed Uc off.
Produce prices were uuout steady, except for choice stock, which was In demand
Transit was the feature of the local securities market. Heavy sales were made nt
higher prices. Other Issues ere barely steady. Hank of Commerce eased off after mak
ing a new record.
Yesterday's bank clearings were JS.S!?,7r-G, balances $956,SS7. Discount rates were steady
between ii and 5i per cent.
Epot cotton was quiet and unchanged in the local market.
