Argentine shipments of corn Iflt week
were ,2av,io bushels. Wheat shipments
were not RUen.
Total exports of wheat and riotir from
this country sln? July l .amount to J.,701,
(m bushels, auilnst 12.i'3,fK) bushels In the
lorrespondlng time a year ago, 22,713,000
bushels two yeuis nga nnd 13,100.tuJ bushels
inree years ago.
A San Francisco inessaRO said: "Paris
cables report wet harvest in France and
quote California wheat fie per bushel hlRh
er and say they do not exis-ot any Rood
winter wneni ironi .America mis year ami
ute looking forward to the spring wheat
crop to help them out."
An Omaha railroad olllclal, well ac
quainted with the situation, wired Secrc
taiy of Agriculture .Morton that corn has
been damaged from 20 to 0 per cent In
parts of Southeast Nebraska. Despite this
the telegram predicts that with favorable
weather there will be as large a corn crop
as was ever produced In the state.
Prices of tliiM-eed have declined 10 cnts
for spot and 7 cents for futures In Chica
go since a neck ago. Hecelpts arc large
and the quality superb. It Is believed now
that this year' crop will be more than
double last, about 19.l,lJ0 bushels, against
T.Ooi.iah) bushels In 1S9I. It is the biggest
yield since lS'Jl.
"There Is no likelihood," says a promi
nent Northwestern man, ''of any consider
able movement of spring wheat for sevetul
weeks. There Is too much oilier product
moving. Our crop of potatoes has been
enormous, so that they are now selling at
St. Paul and .Minneapolis at about lfic per
bushel. The oats crop has been large. The
wheat yield, though. Is going to be very
large, and the movement, once begun, will
KxportH of wheat (Hour included as
wheat) from both coasts of the United
States and from Montreal lust week were
1,100,100 bushels, a gain of about 2uo,vJ
bushels. This is due to increased exports
of Hour, principally from New York. Hal
tltnore and Newport News. Last week s
total of wheat and Hour exports of l.liAOm)
bushels is contrasted with 2,977,i"0 bushels
a vear ago. 3,!K2.l"l bushels two years ago,
3,97S,0O0 bushels in the corresponding week
of 1M2, and l,03S,0ij bushels In a llko week
A revision of the Kansas millers' report
of the amount of wheat In Kansas makes
the total 9.003.9SI-. bushels, of which only
;!,239.:til bushels is lit for milling, the re
mainder being made unlit for use by the
excessive rains during harvest and since.
About half tho damaged wheat is lit for
seed. The seed reiiulieinents are .i.Jkj.ooi)
bushels. The old wheat In farmers' hands
Is CW.OiO bushels, so that about 2.0UU.000
bushels ate available for milling. The te
nulrements for bread aie 7,n00.i."J bushels,
so that Kansas will have to import 0,100.010
bushels of wheat if these tlgures are cor.
F. (3. I-ogan A: Co.. of Chit-ago, wired
W. W. Cow en Saturday: "In the wheat
market, no KnRllsh cables to inlluence;
exports for tho week, though meager at
14000(11) bushels, weie 2Q0.0UO bushels more
than lust week. Tho Argentine shipments
were only 10o,i")0 for the week and with
anticipated moderate Indian and Husslan
shipments next week, will probably show
only moderate foreign supplies, and this,
with an anticipated visible decrease Mon
day of half a million, against a large In
crease last year, will al.-o give rather
bullish world's decrease n.-xt week, but
elegant crop reports from the Northwest,
and belief that farmers In that section
are needing money urgently enough to
cause tales, brought liquidating and short
selling, especially when cash business re
sulting here or at .Minneapolis, and pos
sibly still further reductions may bo
looked for in values, notwithstanding tho
fact that Kansas millers' advices point to
necessary imports Into that state."

than was anticipated one week ugo, and
explain that restricted marketing Is duo
10 the delay in threshing and the unsatis
factory grade of tho grain. From tho
souiIu.ni bell of winter wheat producing
states reports come stating that where
the new wheat is only damp It leadily
drles out and becomes lit tor milling when
handled and cleaned. From all quarters
lepurls continue to come, showing tli.u the
grain of this harvest is lighter than tor
several years. Hecelpts ut some of the
prominent primal y winter wheat markets
have been inoic thnn equal to the demand,
owing to the high prices iiuoied to
millers, but there Is, nevertheless, a
laigc, uusutlsilcd milling demuud,
which appears to be awaiting the outcome
of the spring wheat harvest. We have
no advices indicating that any one of thu
winter wheat slaus will be able to leport
u hlglu-r yUld than has already been 11c.
credited. In fact, many reports from Il
linois. Indiana, Michigan and Kan
sas indicate that the harvest has
been rewllj Jess than reported,
while Kentucky reports indicate that
the yield In that state was slightly under
estimated, and the tenor of TVunesseo ad
vices is of tin- sumo order. Wc estimate
that about 10 per cent of the winter wheat
hurvt-st will be rejected by millers as unlit
for their use
"The condition of corn has not udf.ineed

of former conservative estimates, About
half a dozen counties in Nebraska and an
equal number in Kansas along tho borders
ot those slates report an Irreparable dam

also numerous from Central Kansas early
in the week, but ruin has since abated the
lavages of drouth In that quarter. Dry
weather reports come from a number of
states, and occasionally u correspondent
speaks of hat winds to the west uml south
wtst. I'p to thu time, however, the dam
age to corn in the West has been conllued
to localities, some places duo to scalding,
others to continued dry weather. The area
throughout the corn growing region is so

September wheat had declined to (i7'-,c. or
a little more than lc below the close ot
yesterday. Of fresh news, to account for
the day's additional weakness, there wan
none. The English markets were closed,
this being a bank holiday In England, niul
thorn wns nothing fresh In the domestlu
situation, The European Continental mar
kets were, however, reported to be llrm ami
higher, supposed to be because ot wet
weather, the European winter wheat har
vest being in full blast and the appliances
for tnklngcare ot the cut grain being much,
inferior to those In use here. Chicago re
ceipts wore. 73 cars, ot which 71 were new
red nnd only six of the latter were con
tract quality. 'Minneapolis-nml Dnluth re
ceived 93 cars, against 103 a year ago. Tho
total received at the primary Western mnr
kets were .liM.t-X) bushels, compared with
910,000 on the corresiKindlng day of the
previous year. The week's clearances ot
wheat at and from both coasts amounted
to 1,460,0'), against 1,203,000 bushels on tho
week previous. The day's exports were
equal to about 115.HO0 bushels. Tho Paris

Argentine wheat shipments: for the week
were D'i.OOO bushels, so that tho competition
of that country may now be considered
over for the season, I'tisslnn shipments'
should also bo reduced, temporarily at
least, and with these reductions the Euro
pean importers will have to draw from this
side. They made 11 start to-day In that
direction. Hotchklss sold 150,000 bushels for

and closed at C7(,'i&Sc.
The corn market was weaker again to
day, nnd very decidedly so. September
opened at 12c, Improved to 42Hc, dropped
to ll"ic, and closed at 41"?i U,c. Mav.
from 33c, declined to 31V. and closed with
sellers at 31'ic. It was a mere continuation
of tho effect of an expected stupendous
crop. To-day's receipts were 409 cars. New
York reported 40 boatloads taken there tot
export. Freight room for 230,000 bushels'
was taken here. Atgentlne shipments for
the week were reported at l,250,uoo bushels.

Tho provision market was nrfecled by thft
small run of hogs to start with, th('n by
tho weakness of corn, and liter by cover

cause pork recovered 12',2c of a 13c decline,
