About the ume time, a big speculator in
the St. Louis market conceUed the Idea of
running a corner In July corn there. He
calculated tliat St. Louis would not get
much corn, with manipulation on a large
scale, going on in the Chicago market.
Consequently he bought a big lot of corn
for July delivery with the expectation or
exacting a high price for settlement from
those traders who contracted to deliver
corn in July and should find themselves un
able to do so.
The St. Louis man thought he had every
thing going smoothly until a few days ago.
Then he suddenly discovered that he would
get a million bushels or more delivered on
July contracts. He did not want the corn.
He wanted a chance to force the market
up and compel a settlement at high prices
by the distressed shorts. The St. Louis
plunger sought out the man who threatened
to deliver to him a few hundred thousand

sidered by the Judges In which he does not
go around the prccrlbed course once, and
