Chicago, Juno 17 -After a 2ic break on
ihlg foreign sh.pnicnts, weak cables nnd
1ctter crop reports, wheat was rescued to
vlay by phorts nnd closed but 1'iO lower
than on Saturday. July corn closed Ha
'higher, September oats !ic higher nnd pro
visions without change.
Moro long wheat wag for sals at tho
opening and no buyers could be found for
'It at (hat tlmp within from ic lo Ic per
bushel below the price it closed nt on Bat
iiirday, The first transactions In July wero
.from 73)ic to 7IUc, against "I'bC at the
VIosd of the session on Saturday, On Sat
urday Juno sold as high ns Slc, so that In
exactly ten days a decline of S cents per
bushel took place. Tho additional weakness
wns dun to tin early Intimation In n Llver
pool telegram received before the opening
that the other exporting countries of the
world had more than made up for the fall
lug oft In the shipments from this side,
dt quoted Id lower in the price nnd added
'the significant remark, "shipments large."
'Later In tho day, when over fi.noo.000 bush
VMs wero round to have been put allo.it last
week, although this country and Canada
had only contributed 1,700,000 bushels of the
Vpnintlty, the weakness with which husl
nesM for the day began wns Intensified to
vover purchases of wheat previously short
iwere heavy enough for nbout half nn hour,
liecauso a reaction from around 7lc and
7l',ic to 71Hc, but the Immense amount of
'the week's shipments told how they were
'regarded by the crowd, when nbout 10:30
Wclook a droii to 73'io had taken plncc.
The mnrket became weaker nnd weaker
as tho session progressed, up to about 12
o'clock, when tho decline was arrested.
The reaction which followed the further
'decline to 72Uc was not duo to any notlce
'able buying outside of which was being tak
en to cover shorts. Crop news was not 11 n
plentiful as for somo days bnck, but such
as catnti to hand showed no general im
'provement. From 'Missouri tho tenor of
the majority of the dispatches was that
the damage In that state had been over
stated, placing the outlook at no mora than
unit a crop, and that It would turn out
about 73 per cent. From Ohio, on the other
hand, tho extent of the damage wns de
scribed In almost sensational terms and
such as lead to a. probable destruction of
'one-half of the wheat nnd oats crops. In
'dlana and Illinois appeared to have censed
'mentioning .their damage, but the trade
for the most part accepts tho fact of tho
most extensive harm to wheat have hap
pened In those two states and Kansns. Tho
visible supply decreased 2,022,000 bushels
'and tho total Is now down to 47,717,000 bush
els, compared with 67,105,000 bushels In 1891
nnd 06,37.1,000 bushels at tho corresponding
time in 1803.
Tho Northwestern receipts were 233 cars,
compared with 272 a year ago. Atlantic
port clearances since Inst reported on Sat
urday wero equal In wheat and Hour to
only 163,000. One of the Items of the dny's
news which helped the bears was a cable
gram from Odessa saying that the Russian
grain crops promised lo repeat tho heavy
yields of 1893, rye being especially good.
Tho price began to Improve from 12 o'clock
and trading at 74c for July was ln progress
within n few minutes of the close, the
market ending nt 73c.
The corn market wns under a spell of
weakness at the opening which lnstcd till
the agony was passed In wheat. The feel
ing ln corn did not nt any time approach
the heaviness of that In wheat, and after
tho receipts estimated for to-morrow be
came known as only 160 ears. Instead of
weakness there ensued a feeling of ctnll
dencc. The receipts were 174 cars and 11.
() bushels by canal. The visible supply
decreased 797,000 bushels, against 411,000
bushels decrease a year ago. The total In
sight now Is 10.785,000 bushels, compared
with 7,003,000 bushels at the corresponding
time last year. Argentine shipped 587,000
bushels to Europe Inst week, but tho
amount on ocean passage now Is 60,000
bushels less than It was last week. July
corn opened nt IS'dc, compared with -ISsc
at the close on Saturday. The tendency
nfter the Hrst few minutes was toward Im
provement, and after following wheat for
an hour or so it struck out for itself and
landed nt 4!)c.
A very active market was reported for
oats. The early session was remarkable
for the weakness created by free selling
by New Y'ork nnd nlso generous offerings
of long stuff. Later on tho buying became
general and from Hint time on a llrm mar
ket was noted. Prices rallied and closed
steady for July and higher for September.
September ranged from 27Hc to 2S;iC, clos
ing nt 'JS'Kc.
The provision mnrket was affected for
an hour nfter tho opening by tho various
changes In wheat, but later in the dav
it took corn for Its leader nnd recovered
a small decline made at the start, leaving
off llrm without change from Saturday's
slstcd too largely of common natives and
Toxans, there being few choice llocks.
