Becord of Becont Years Broken in Grain Pit at Chicago. Coarse Ce
real Selling Ten Cents Higher Than Wheat Little Selling, De
spite Fancy Figures Offered and Sensational Rise Is Accom
panied by Slight Excitement and No Signs of Dis
tress on the Tart of the Bears.
GATES CROWD IS PLAYING
Chicago. III.. July 7. With scarcely nny
surface excitement and nothing suggestive
of panic turmoil, the com pit made specu
lative history to-day by sending corn for
July up to Slc, and holding It to a notch
he below that point at the clore.
It was a clean advance of 7c over the
close of last Thursday, when the Board of
Trade began a three-da holiday.
Thus the anomaly is presented of corn sell
ing 10c higher than wheat.
The events of the day. accepted as a mat
ter of course, and seeming to surprise no
one In the trade, show that the Gates
crowd of manipulators has the corn market
absolutely in Its control.
When predictions were made again that
corn would go to a dollar a bushel beforo
the end of the month, there were no
sneers. Despite the fancy figures to which
com rose, there was very little selling.
Many were ready to pay the price, but the
goods were not delivered.
PLAN TO FORCE SHORTS IV
DV RPIDLY BOOSTING PRICES.
The move indicated that the bull party
proposed to force shorts in by raining
prices up faster than the ordinary specula
tor could follow with his margin checks.
The trade was amazed that such a price
up 12 cents in a week, and up almon 23
cents in four weeks made no greater ex
citement In the pit.
The extraordinary rally only a little In
creased the July business. There were no j
signs ot ,u:siress on tne part or the tears
There was only one effort on any cale to
cover. Ware-Leland took about fOO&iO
bushels of July the largest open purchase
In some days. The other July trades were
In small figures, a scattered covering by
shorts and moderate selling b elevator
The July was given some help by the bull
crowd, some buying early by Harris Gates.
Naturally, such a corn range started talk
of private settlement:1, but there was ro
confirmation. There was a big trade In the
deferred month", and the pit Impression
was that the best selling of September was
for Armour. This, however, was througn
commission people. Openly Armour was a
moderate buyer. Slaughter. Edwards. Can
by. Wrenn. Gilford were sellers of Septem
ber. The firm of Harris, Gates' & Co.. for some
wealthy customers, supposed to include
John W. Gatest J. A. Drake and a few
other millionaire speculators, have, as Is
generally supposed, bought about 20.000,000
bushels of com for delivery this month at
between G9 cents and 5 centn a bushel.
Their AJs at 81 cents, if the average
cost of their purchases was G2 cents, would
amount to H.WO.000. That Is the stake now
being played for.
