The bull movement of June and July,'
Which culminated in the establishment ;
of the high record prices mentioned I
nbov?, was predicted on the nssump- i
tion that the crop had got such a bad'
start and had been so heavily damuged
"by the excessive rains throughout tho
eastern und centrtl part of the belt
and the drought In Oklahoma and Ar
It.'ins&s during July that ths crop out
Jook was considered very unfavorable.
There was then not a prospect of the
crop turning out better than 13.000.000
bale*. The break In the drought
throughout Oklahoma nnd Texas lust
before the publication of last month's
irovernment crop report, followed by
the continuation of good growing

ACTIVITY IN MARKET
ON RESTRICTED SCALE
New Tork, September 1,?Activity In
the stock mark.? last week, although
somewhat greater than the previous
tfpli, continued on a restricted scale,
and the movement of prices was slug?
gish or fitful and lrngular. Various
explanations are offered for the uhre
Sp'ohstVcneBS of the market to devel?
opments affecting vnlurs. One of im?
mediate application last week was the
perideni y of a throe-day holidny. An
upward trend of prices was ascribed
to covering, of short contract', In prep^
aration for the holiday The predom?
inance of n short Interest, by one of
the cohtraritlos that distinguished
Speculation, did not Imply belief. In
an unfavorable business outlook, but
favorable factors i.ure been operative
for some time without stimulating de?
mand for stocks, and the professional
spei i ator argues that If prices fail
to respond to buying inducements It
nie.-ins a notice to sell.
The business prospect continued to
be .l!aET.o-/rcl as excellent, and the con?
viction gathered strength that revival
was not to be halted by the presiden?
tial campaign Nevertheless the absen
tlon from speculation |s due in part to
fears that the campaign may yet de?
velop n situation Which will make eap
itnl uneasy. The agitation regarding
political contributions In tho past was
contemplated without disfavor. In the
convlctlon that corporations would be
benefited rather than hurt by stop,
pine exactions upon them. The prchl
, bltion of railroad fuvers and rtlsi rim
i Inatlbns resulted wholly to the benefit
j <>f those companies Undoubtedly,
however, the prime Incentive ib caution
I In speculation lies In the condition of
j the money market.
j Requisition upon money supplies for
active business purposes wert- shown
! by cror-s currents In last week's money
markets. Interior money markets paid
, their d?M to the government by drafts
i on New York?the usual preliminary to
; direct shipments of currency, interior
' hank? have larger balances than usual
' In New York and ha\o borrowed ba
, sides, with corresponding Increases In
I power of withdrawal. The full volume
; of tli? harvest and Its high ju ices will
I require more money than usual Grain

' last sea'on's shortage, and the ? xeoss
1 value of exports therefore lessened,

I In New York this week rind Is bidding
