II WAGNER'S REVIEW I
Morning Stock Letter.
New York, July 18. We look for a
mixed position in stocks for the next
few days. They should not be bought
except on drives for turns. London
came higher today, perhaps bid for
the purpose of selling here. Senti
ment abroad seems improved, not
withstanding the Balkan situation is
cloudy. The newspapers are full of
strike talk. Yesterday it was thought
the eastern railroad men would back
down and would have to arbitrate
everything. They say they will not
arbitrate the railroad's demand. Will
the companies yield? We think there
will be no strike, perhaps there will
be a little tension for a few days re
flected in the stock market. We do
not believe stocks will be carried
much higher. The public gives little
response. Traders furnish most of
the buying. The banks have agalp
lost heavily to subtreasury and with
the time money very closely held they
will hardly encourage much rise in
Morning Grain Letter.
Chicago, July 18. Local cash men
back from seaboard say export wheat
sales are biggest In many years. Eu
rope has bought our wheat greedily
at the 85 cent wheat level and senti
ment is crystallzing in favor of cur
rent prices being low enough. If
wheat dips today cover your sales.
Oats bulls are regaining their courage
Standard oats are 40 to 41 after ail
this noise. Early threshing reports
run 30 per cent below last July. Cash
demand for corn and oats continues
fair, but lacks dash. Big grain house
at Wichita gives corn a 60 condition
over 20 counties In Kansas. Doug
las, Kas., corn 60, and early corn gone.
One of the biggest mills in south Kan
sas says Sumner county corn is 25
and oats 50. with hay drying up. Oats
has gone back. Corn is burned up
except la the bottoms. Kansas tem
peratures ran 92 to 106 on Thursday;
Iowa, 92 to 96; Missouri, 100; south
half of Illinois ran up to 100;. parts of
Nebraska rah 100.
Until rain arrives over southwest
corn cannot break seriously. Corn Is
fine in north central Texas, but we
are receiving 25 to 75 Mr cent re
ports from Oklahoma. Kansas reports
show. a loss in oats condition. Parts
of Iowa also claim loss in oats this
month. Some corn was sold Thurs
day on chance of hot wave breaking
after a five-day period. Cool in north
west and Canada again yesterday. Re
cent rains through central west and
slow cash inquiries have held the corn
market in check. Chicago corn sup
plies not reducing so fast ar expected.
Provisions are too high to tempt the
investor unless absolute hog scarcity
develops. Generalnnarket details fav
Liverpool, July 18. WTheat steady,
American cables offset by the larger
arrivals and pressure off coast car
goes. World's shipments are expected
to be large and reports from the har
vesting centers are more favorable as
regards the weather. During the
morning the market displayed some
steadiness and advanced slightly,
with France buying on the decline
and a somewhat Improved continental
demand. Spot markets easy and ex
pectations are for liberal arrivals dur
ing the next few days, and these
served to check the advance. Corn
lower with the undertone easy. Real
izing was induced by the weakness in
spot and the pressure of plate offers.
Argentine stock are increasing.

Southwest Corn Loss.
Chicago, July 18. Corn reports out
side the southwest mainly maintain
their generous promise. A 20 .point
July loss lu 20 per cent of the corn
belt on excess heat would suggest an
A?ust condition of 81 to 82. At sucn
figures the August promise would be
around 2,900,000,000 a decline of 70,-
000,00 from July 1st.
We have received reports from Kan
sas that place the corn condition 60
a decline of 21 points. The corn trend
hinges on southwest rain and heat de
velopments. High temperatures have
run five days. We prefer to advise'
December corn, as the September pre
mium may dwindle.
Wheat is under the domination of
the remarkable 1912 and 1913 sequence
of a 150,000,000 United States surplus
each year. A 730,000,000 August re
port is outlined. Wheat is a cheap ar
ticle but unless Russia suddenly shows
up with a small surplus will hardly
display, extended bulges.
Only July oats report are just as ir
regular as the 20 to 80 per cent re
ports of June. The district that feeds
the primary movement will be heav
ily below last year. Oats are in no
haste to desert the 40 cent level. In
vestment hedges after advances are
due but would replace.
July pork at $22 and other products
in proportion apparently mark the end
of the July bull campaign. We do not
care to sell products but we recognize
the investor will not follow these
prices into higher labyrinths.
We accept clover seed orders for in
stant execution in the Toledo market.
October seed figures $8.65. Market
usually has an advancing tendency in
July with a fulmination in August.
Closing Stock Letter.
New York, July 18. Stocks devel
oped a good deal of strength today,
on private advices from abroad, telling
of improvement in the Balkan situa
tion. Curiously enough, there was no
confirmation of these, but It may be
assumed that Bulgaria must yield
within a few days, at the outside. This
should help the money market, but It
may be found that the news has been
generally discounted. Most of the
trading was in half dozen issues, in
which it is known the largest short in
terest existed. Today's news from the
corn be.t was less favorable. In many
sections rain is urgently needed.
orn was strong today on damage
stories. We would not follow stocks
up but use the opportunity to sell long
holdings. There will be plenty more
chances to buy them back.
