Grain Moving Toward
Chicago in Increased
LOTS OF OLD CORN STILL
Fanners Find a Surplus in Places
Where Supply Was Unsuspected
Rates Improved and This Feature of
the Situation Is More Favorable.
CHICAGO, Sept. 1. Better weather
having permitted freer marketing of
grain in the .Northwest, West, and
Southwest, traffic conditions improved
last 'week in every section and on near
ly all lines. The -rate situation, which
looked bad a week ago, has also
changed for the better. Chicago-Kansas
City lines have agreed to raise rates
on grain from 7 cents to 11 ,and 12
cents, and the low rates on iron to Col
orado points which have cut into earn
ings are to be replaced by a higher
tariff. At the moment, therefore, the
rate situation appears to bo sound.
Corn Soon Out of Danger.
Higher temperatures throughout the
corn belt have added millions of bush
els to the corn crop, not only in bring
ing It nearer maturity, but also in mak
ing it less liable to damage from frosts.
The consensus of experts sent out to
jasccrtain the condition of this crop is
"that within the next fortnight the
greater part will be out of danger of
frost, and In three weeks practically the
Farmers are beginning to sell their
old corn. In sections where it had been
supposed there was little if any old
corn, the farmers have suddenly dis
covered a surplus This will come into
the markets in the next two or three
1 -weeks, as it has been bought for future
New Corn Increasing.
The Southwest, Oklahoma and south-j
ern Kansas are offering new corn on
the ear at 40 cents in Kansas City for
shipment by September 10. All signs in
that section point to Increased move
ment of the new corn. The past week
has also developed enlarged offerings of
wheat. In the Northwest and in Iowa
clear weather for a few days last week
enabled farmers to thrash and in-
creased the grain offerings at country
stations. If the weather keeps good it
seems likely that the grain traffic will
shortly increase to its normal propor
tions of recent years.
Chicago Grain Deliveries.
In the grain deliveries at Chicago the
past week receipts "of wheat were less
by 83,000 bushels than those of the week
preceding; but receipts of corn were
greater by 112,000 bushels, and of oats
by 700,000 busl-els. Total receipts were
573,000 bushels, or 17.2 per cent more
than in the week ending August 23. but
4,000 more than in the last week of Au
gust, 1901, despite" a decrease of 1,170,000
bushels in the deliveries of corn from
those of last year. Compared to those
of like weeks in earlier years, the past
week's grain receipts were small, be
ing 541,000 bushels below those of 1900,
37 per cent less than 1SH3 and in 1S9S.
63 per cent less than in 1S97, when the
traffic was abnormally large, and 919,
000 bushels less than in lfc9G.
The positions of most of the Western
roads, particularly those of the leaders,
when ranked according to their partici
pation in the traffic, were changed last
week. The Burlington, for example.
which has led for months by a good mar
gin, lost its lead. .
Illinois Central and Burlington.
The Illinois Central carried 3,000 bush
els more than the Burlington. Each of
the two roads had 17 per cent, and 34
per cent between them. The Alton kept
Its high position, with 13 per cent. The
Rock Island delivered S per cent. The
"ortlr)vestern. Wabash, and Eastern Il
linois each carried 7 per cent; the St.
Paul and the Santa Fe 6 per cent each,
and the Great Western j per cent.
The grain traffic of August is usually
almost double that of July. In 1900,
thus, deliveries were 9,000,000 bushels
more in August than in July, and in 1899.
8.000,000 bushels more. Deliveries at
Chicago for the eight months ending
August 30, 1902, were 99,937,000 bushels,
or 10 per cent lets than for the same
time of 1901, 30 per cent below those of
1S00, and 41.C per cent less than in 1S99.
There was a decrease of 10.000.000 bush
els of wheat, 33,000,000 bushels of corn,
and 20,000.000 bushels of oats from last
year. Receipts of wheat were 19,280,000
bushels, corn 38,084,000 bushels, oats 44,
369,000 bushels, and rye and barley 7,

were flying along the murky stream.

the incoming cars at sunset and sought
their homes. In many a house reed birds
were served for dinner.
Danger in Marshes.
While the opening day generally
brings outfall of the crack shots, the
fact that yesterday was Labor Day tend
ed to keep many of these away from the
sport, as at present the reeds arc very
higt, making It difficult to see twenty
feet in front of oneself. For this reason
there is much danger In pushing through
the marshes, as many are out who have
had little experience at the sport, and
are careless in handling their guns.
The birds were driven from their flock
ing grounds in Xew Jersey and Delaware
because of the early advent of the cool
weather, and there were as many reedles
out on the marsh two weeks ago as there
For many years past there have been
inexperienced sportsmen who have gone
out and shot about everything that
looked like a bird. According lo" law no
crane, sage hen, or summer duck can be
shot at any time during the year. These
birds were the subject of target prac
tice yesterday for those not familiar with
the game laws. The game wardens were
rather plentiful, however, and it is not
thought that much damage was done.

Wagner, the veteran sportsmai:, who Is
authority on gunning around these parts,
predicted a very successful season. Ho
Mr. Wagner's Prediction.
"From all reports this will be a very
good season for the gunner. Two weeks
ago there were by far more birds on
the marshes at Benning tna'n there
were a any time last season, and they
are still coming. Will I go out the
first day? No, sir! 1 would like very
much to go, hut there is too much dan

places that It is Impossible to see

many inexperienced persons who go on
the opening day are rather inclined to
be careless in the handling of their
