WALL STREET ABSORBED IN
PROGRESS OF CORN SQUEEZE.
New York. July 8. July corn was the
magnet that held the attention of Wall
street traders to-day.
From the sound of the gong on the Prod
uce Exchange which adjoins the stock mar
ket in Its temporary quarters, brokers who
pay little or no attention to grain as a rule
were drawn to the cereal mart and were
amazed by the sudden rise in the July op
tions. Attention was directed to the doings of
the Harris-Gates operators from the open
ing of thetarkeL While operators for the.
firm wete trading on both sides of the mar
ket, there was not much corn sold In the
The net around the bears seemed to be
drawn tighter this morning than at any
time since the squeeze began, and many
shorts covered their obligations rather than
stand the strain. One trader Is said to have
covered at a loss of J75.CCO. and the amount
of corn short was very small even then.

Many stories were circulated this morn

holders of July corn, and the money made
during the last ten days. One prominent

Gates' Advice lt an Old Friend.
Jo- McDonald, a friend of John W. Gates
from boyhood when they rlayed together In
a little town in this State, told to-day of
a conversation held with Mr Gates tter

asked Gates whether. If he were long a

Vast Interests IlacU or the Deal.
The peculiar feature of the present comer
In corn Is the amount of money back of
the Interests credited with running tho
deal. In the history of grain manipulation
In this city or In Chicago there never has
been as unlimited financial resources os
those commanded by the persons believed
to be at the bottom of the corner In July
corn. In the famous Cincinnati wheat cor
ner in 1SS7, under the lead of Harper, the
resources of the bull pool were limited.
When "Old Hutch" ran the wheat comer
In 1SSS, he failed to make money, owing to
lack of funds. The Coster-Martin com cor
ner in 1SS2 broke with a crah owing to
margin calls that could not be met. Even
the famous Letter crowd, with all the
money ptesented by Lelter and others, had
but limited backing compared with the
present operators In July corn.
In the local market July corn ws selllns
at 3jc. against 90c In Chicago at midday.
Produce Exchange brokers, all well known
authorities In tne trade, agreed In two
things to-day. One was that there was no
question that the Gates party had made a
very large amount of money by their
corner in July corn some estimate the
amount as high as Jt.OOO.OOO-and the other
was that If the price of corn kept on ad
vancing and the shortage should extend In
to August, the prices of several staple com
modities, such as beef, glucose and whisky,
would be materially advanced.

L His connection with the party, running
through half a century, his long and distin
guished career In th Senate, where he has
been a loading exisinent of Democratic
principle, make the expression of Senator
Vet very lmortant and interesting at this
The Senator said to Tha Republic corre
Fpondent: "I have no objection to stating that, while
I am a blmctalllst. sincerely and truly, and
believe that silver Is money of ultimate re
demption. I do not think that this Is the
time to make the free and unlimited coin
age of silver at 1G to 1 a paramount Issue.
I beli-ve that a man can be a good Demo
crat without indorsing the declaration in
the Kan.si.1 City platform for the free and
unlimited coinage of sliver at 16 to 1 with
out the consent of foreign countries.
"I will further state that I think Mr.
Brjan's declaration, made In his paper and
in his speeches at Cfailllcothe and other
places in Missouri, that no man should be
sent as a delegate to any county. State or
national convention who does not indorse
the Kansas City platform in its entirety is
a very great mistake. If this Is to be the
test of Democracy in Missouri, men will
be read out of the party who, like myself,
have voted the ticket for fifty years, but
who now believe that circumstances have
made the free and unlimited coinage of sil
ver at the ratio of 16 to 1 an Impolitic dec
laration. "If this should be the test of Democracy,
numbers of Democrats who stood by the
doctrines and principles of the party when
it was worth a man's life to do so would
be driven from tne organization. I know a
great many old veteran Democrats In Mis
souri who stood, in the dark days after the
Civil War. by the side of Frank P. Blair,
pistol in band, who would be read out of
the ranks If the lisue should be made as
repeatedly declared by Mr. Bryan.
"I am a blmetallist upon principle, but I
do r.ot believe that men should be ostracized
as declared traitors to the party becau:
they do not think that free and unlimited
coinage of silver at IS to 1 Is to be always
the test of Democracy.
"Theso are my opinions, but I do not un
dertake to Instruct the State Convention
what they should do. I have no personal
ambition to subserve and no disposition to
criticise anybody. I shall not be in the
convention, nor take any part In the can
va. and simply express what I honestly be
lieve to be the best policy for the party to
which I belong."
