Chicago, April 6. The D.iily Trade
Bulletin publishes a summary of the
estimates by its correspondents
on the percentage of damage
to wheat by unseasonable weath
er the past two months. East
of Indiana the damage is slight. Cal
ifornia's prospects are excellent. In
the remainder of the country the out
look is decidedly discouraging. Indi-j
cations are that the average condition
in the United States will not exceed
255,000.000. or 20,000.000 bushels
less than last year. The seeding
of spring wheat is decidedly backward
