SUMMARY OF ST. LOUSS MARKETS.
Weather conditions w ere again the principal factor In the local market yesterday. The
bulls had speculative conditions well in hand and, despite attempts to break price, both
wheat and corn closed In better shape than on Thursday. At the opening there was a
general rush to buy. Advices from nearly all sections of the -winter-wheat belt showed
that heavy rains had fallen during the night and the outlook was for more moisture.
Too tret" was the general comment of traders on both sides of the market. It was
known that there was a heavy short Interest, and until this was covered there was no
evidence of a movement to break the market. Later profit-taking by comparatively small
traders caused a break, but toward th- close there was more bujtng and prices advanced
rapidly Corn was almost entirely neglected
Receipts were fair! heavy and country offerings light.
July wheat opened tsfitliC up and closed
July corn opened He up and closed He up.

mand Trading In local securities was light, with tractions lower and trust-company Issues

between 5 and 6 per cent.

Both Wheat and Corn Close
Higher, Despite Lack of Out
Tcsterdij's market was again based en
tirely on the weather. The opening coher
ing by shorts carried values sharply on the
upturn. There was an early advance of
nearly lc Later profit taking caused a
slump Toward tho close there was a good
buying demand. The Modern Miller says:
"The movement so far of n-v wheat to
market Is small Rains have prevented
harvest operation In many sections, nota
bly in the Southwest. Quite a number of
reports of disappointing thrashing return
are arriving, but the general average Is up
to expectations The quality of the now
crop Is good but the weight test Is not up
to last j car, as a rule. Interior mills are
taking new wheat freelv. and there is some
bujing by Gulf exporters

WHEAT BULUSHLY ACTIVE
ON BAD WEATHER REPORTS.
KAIXS INJURE GRAIN THAT IS
READY FOR CUTTING.
Close Is Higher, in Company With
Corn and Oats Provisions
Chicago. June 20 Wet weather Influenced
breadth and bullish activity in wheat to
day. Continuous rains In the standing
wheat and much excitement In the foreign
markets over similar conditions In France
and England put pr.ces up and the general
bullish sentiment cuiiendered by the news,
held prices, ery nenr the top ligures. The
bulls In the corn pit rested, but the wheat
influence was enough to put prices both in
corn and cats on a stronger basis At the
close July when w.:s ic higher, Jul) corn
'iC up. and July oats n1c advanced,
t-rovliions shotted raarnea Independent
Mrensth and closed lOiil-SViC nigher.
From the outset, wheat was buil'sh. Liv
erpool made- qood auvance, .md l'aris. in
addition lo esterua i stren-ttn, showed In
creases of ii,c to 1'2C I'orcmn markets
were ottremei. nervous over tiiu prospect
of short crops m conseiiuence ot wet
weather. (Jaigo";, ott coast were in great
demand, and prices wero advancing for spo
cereals and flour. At home, rains fell con
tinuously and more were predicted general
ly. Advices from Nebraska stated mat tb
wheat was ripe and awaited cutting, but
that the groui.il was In such a bouked con
ditpn that farmers, could l ot attempt tho
work. Further than th-s, grain that had
been cut In other SU-tes was dam? and
would not grade contract. What with this
bullish news and a general Improvement in
outside business on the Hoard of Trade,
Uiorts considered It time to cover. Senti
ment was bullish and grew more strongly
so every moment with advancing prices,
lhere was a fair cash demand and tne fu
ture market showed no soft 3pots It was
supposed that there was a large long in
terest In Julv wheat, but If such were the
case, not enough of tre hJl'l.ngs were un
loaded to make a"j perceptible change In
tho sentiment. .Business was more active
in wheat than for a long time. Julj nneat
opened Hf'sc higher at 73sc to 74c. grad
ually atlaintd 74Wo;J,c. and on a little real
izing, eased, but ended with a strong close.
Tie up at 74tc Trading was very good In
deferred futures. Local receipts weie 25
can 2 of contract grade, ilinueapolls and
Duluth reported 21'1 cars, making a total for
the three points of SIS cars, against 245 last
week and J3i a jear ago. Primary receipts
wero 339.100 bu.. compared to 417.VUO bu. last
j car beaboard clearances lu wheat and
Hour equaled 171.01 bu. Argentine ship
ments were 701,100 bu . compared to Ml W0
bu. last week The beaboard reported 13
loads taken for export.
Corn was strong and higher most of the
session, but ruled comparatively ejulet. The
big bulls were seemingly dormant, awaiting
another opportunity in which to carry out
their manipulative plans. Trade was small
and was done mostly by commlsslon-hruses.
There was a fair demand In the more dis
tant futures and nothing new developed In
the July "deal." Strength of wheat and
the wot weather were the bullish Incentives.
There was most no selling pressure. While
receipts were Increased nt 223 cars, only 22
cars graded contract. July sold between
CViC and 63c. and closed firm. Uc up at
Water In the oats fields was a threatening
danger to bears In the oats pita, and at
once started some of the more diffident
shorts to covering. Cash stuff was In good
demand and some of the better grades sold
to-day as high as 4Sc. There was only a
littles scattered selling, and. although trade
was not lnrse on the buv lnsr side, the nori-
tlon of oati was si strong that July new
again sold at 4"c. Tho close was very firm,
July HKc up at 33"c. Receipts were 161
cars, only 10 of contract grade.

rected toward a eiulet and tna'-tlv market. Few
horses were held over in the barns, and the
prospects are that the wek will end with a
thon-ugh clearance It has not been an active
week on the plainest klrds of horss, but com
mission Interests hnve 'n some wnv succeeded In
effecting their sale "fl 1th the better kinds there
has b-en no difficult), the demand ruling artlve
from the East for all that were available. About
half a dozen carloads of Eastern purchases went
out from the market Thursday, representing some
cf the purchases during the we-ic, Considering
th sea-cn of the tear, the market is holding up
well on the best classes of horsis.

REPORT ON ELDORADO TROUBLE
Colonel Ewert Says That No Bace
SprinEfieUi, 111.. June 30 Colonel Tee
doro Ewert, Assistant Adjutant General,
presented to Governor Yates to-day his re
port on his investigation of the alleged ne
gro outrages at lUdorado, and In Saline
County. Colonel Ewert went to Eldorado
on a special train Tuesday night, tinder in
structions from Governor Yates to make an
ofllclal Investigation, and to ascertain the
exact situation there.
The report recites in detail the Informa
tion obtained by Colonel Ewert. and sum
marizes his conclusions aa follows:
That the lair In Eldorado and Saline county
was violated by persons unknown.
That no one In Eldorado or 9allne Cormty can
designate any person connected with these viola
tions of the Inw.
That two families received wanrlnr to leave;
that others moved away of tnelr own accord, be
ing frightened, and that lamates of the colored
Industrial school left on the advice of the bberlff
of Saline county.
That the disturbances were not a race war"
nor an organized movement by the citizens
against the colored residents.
That. In the opinion of Colonel Ewert. the
trouble originated from a spirit of fun. deviltry
or bravado, on the part of young and irresponsi
ble persons, and that It was kept up and main
tained because some of the colored residents be
That the citizens of Eldorado nnd Saline Coun
ty generally deplore the acts ot these unknown
Tliat thse eltlzens will endeavor to stop all
future lawless acts.
Colonel Ewert concludes that the entire affair

firmly believes that no reputab'e colored cltlieas
are In dinger of either life or property.

halted by two negroes armed with revol
vers. Bartley carried a revolver hlmsalf.
but was unable to use It, as they had tho
drop on him. While one of them covered
him with a revolver, the other negro
searched his clothes, taking $3. A diamond
ring, which Bartley were in hl scarf,, was
also taken. The ring Is valued at $100.
When they had taken all the booty they
could find one of the negroes kicked Bart
ley in the stomach and then the two started
away, forgetting or neglecting to search his j
pockets for a revolver.
A soon as the negroes left him he leaped
to his feet, and followed them about 150
feet, firing two shots after tbem. Neither
of the shots took effect, as far a9 known.
When he fired the secord shot he fell un
conscious to the sidewalk, where he was
found a short time afterward by Policeman
