Chlcngo. 111.. Aug. R. The wlic.it market
to-day was battered with stntlstbs regard
ing the shortage of the world's crops, until
It was knocked clean off Its feet. It was
revived and set up again, by the taking;
of about 150.00) bushels for shipment, an
extraordinary feature of which was that
72,900 bushels of the nmoilnt were for Tole
do. Al the close nit early decline of 7o
had been recovered from, and the prlco
was left nt he higher that It closed yes-1)
leruay. (.otn wns khockcu 0111 01 us 4; nit
by the falling down of a ltoston llrm which
was said to be long nhout l.WO.ti) busheli
for September, the selling out of which
for their account caused n decline of l'o
per bushel from the highest point. May
was unaffected nnd closed r higher. Pro
Visions were llrm, after early weakness,
tho close showing advances of lie each In
pork, lard nnd ribs.
First trades In wheat showed ViiV" loss
ntnl sold olT a fraction more, cased off 'jc,
ndvanced lc, ruled sternly and closed a
stated. The early show of weakness was;
due largely to tho fact that the receipts
nt St. Louis showed considerable Increaso
and then cables were Indifferent. New
York reported tho cash demand slow, ami
this cost the prices something. The En
glish visible was reported ns Increased
1, 400,000 bushels. On the other hand, tho
Prlco Current was a little "bullish" In its
remarks on winter wheat, and then, too,
the weather In the Northwest was not
ns favorable as of late, too much rain oc
curring Hi that section and showers and
cooler conditions were jiredlcted. Certain
professionals wero Inclined to fnvor thu
"long" side, nnd then buying aided thu
rally, which followed after the early de
cline. Tho disappointing exports, the total
clearings of wheat und Hour being but
7l,fti0 bushels, of which 70.5W bushels wan
In Hour, stnrted the reaction nnd the brealc
In corn wns something ol n factor. Tho
small trade was against tho price also.
Northwestern receipts were much smnller
than 11 year ugo. Local arrivals were about
one-fourth ot those ot a year ago. Tho
London Times wns reported as making thu
English crop 25 per cent below last year.
The olllcliil crop of India was said to bo
225,800.000 bushels, or about 31,0U0,uou bushel
less than reported one year ago.
Corn wn fairly octivo and rather tinn
er early, but broke later, rallied some nnd
closed with n. loss ot ?cfie for Septem
ber, a decline for October, December
down ;,c nnd .May up 7,0. Tho early
strength was duo 111 a measure to talk of
cold weather and room traders were dis
posed to favor the long side for ti time.
Initial trades were at Mf'.'jC decline nnd
soon sold up -Hc. broke ic, rallied 'Ac,
changed some, ruled steady und closed as)
stated. Tho break was attributed by
some to tho selling out ot considerables
long property for a Hoston concern which
was said to be In trouble, and the dccllna
which followed caught many stop loss;
orders, the executing of which carried
September down to 39c. The tnlk of lib
eral receipts was also a factor, 12.1 carsj
being estimated fop to-morrow, with 30)
cars In to-day. The weather was good
for wheat, but colder conditions were In
dicated for tho Northwest. The Price
Current stated rain would soon bo needed
In some sections.
Oats were unlet find e.l,vi,lv Tlnsl.m-
lions .were conllned to ic and closed with
out important changes trom yesterday.
Shorts wero fair buyers etirly and tho
mantel ionowcu corn to a moderate ex
tent. Provisions opened weak and closed firm,
making the following gains compared with
tho closing prices of the day berore. Tho
September delivery ot pork, 17','e higher;
lard find ribs, each 15c. Shorts were tho
chief buyers, but it wns claimed that a,
considerable quantity ot meats had been
taken for shipments; The l'rlcc Current

IVestern rangers nf tho better class still
tending upward, but common cattle, no
matter whether natives or range stock,
wore slow and weak. For goud to strictly

at fo.tK)Ta.8.1, the extreme range for com

principally nt $ I.Goi 5.0). Some prime 1,41,1
pound steers were sold hy Martin Hros. at

slow of sale. Western range cattle receipts
were about 3,000 head und sales were lively
at stronger prices.
HOGS-Coiislderably less than 50,000 hogs
