II WAGNER'S REVIEW II
Closing Stock Letter.
New York, Aug. 8. As was to bo
expected, today's market was fever
ish, pending the publication of the gov-
pmmpnt croD reoort. the figures of
which when released, were about in
line with , general estimates. . There
has undoubtedly been considerable
damage to corn, but it is to be hoped
thta of this may be repaired before
it is too late. The copper producers'
statement, showing an increase of ap
proximately 700.000 pounds, which was
somewhat worse than had been expect
ed, but of course, did not include the
heavy sales made within the nst 10
days. The American Railways' asso
ciations report, Indicating a heavy de
crease in surplus cars, would seem to
bear out recent reports of a trade
revival. As for the price at which
Southern Pacific stock is to be offered.
It is still pretty much anybody's
guess, but best opinion leans to the
price of 92 and interest.

Morning Grain Letter.
Chicago, Aug. 8. Newspapers give
big attention to claim Patten party is
bulling September corn and forecast
ing a small movement of corn in Sep
tember. Chicago corn supplies are 3,
300,000. Tome sharp changes in the
September nc.fl December corn spread
may nsult. . !t "might widen to 6 or
6 cents. Buyers of September are
apt to hedge in December or May. Kan

ered with a 100 to 106 heat wave yes
terday. The question of fall plowing

Indiana, southern Illinois and Iowa
temperatures cloee to 100. In the rain
fall up to 7 p. m. Thursday sections of
Illinois, ?owa and the northwest were

severe that newspapers run special

corn condition of 75 to 76 is expected.
If above 76 it may notbe considered
immediately bullish. If 77 to 78 it will
be bearish. At 74 to 75 it will be a
standoff. Below 73 it will look bullish.
The oats estimate will probably have
little effect if larger than expected. At
900,000.000 to 975.000,000. it will be !
friendly to corn. Oats are now affect
ed by loss of pastures and certainly by
very high corn prices. Corn acreage j
is $107,000,000. Snow August guess is
75.1. Goodman guesses 77.4. Govern
ment guesses on oats reserves today.
August average is about 45,000,000.
About 100,000,000 is expected. Iff corn
reports this morning suggest a 74 con
dition. Pekin, 111., corn and oats run
ning 10. Mangolia, southern end of
northern division; looks 70 for corn.
Pana, 111. corn 50, oats 5 to 15 bushels.
A guess of 730,000,000 millions or over'
Is expected on wheat. Export demand
is temporarily slow. At Kansas City
wheat is piling up, -with shipments the
smallest in many years. Wheat tone
it a little heavier. If a bulge in any
of the grains today early, rather look
for taking of profits" and selling.
Liverpool, Aug. 8. Wheat dull but
steady. American offers and Argen
tine shipments light. Later prices de
clined on expectations of larger world's
shipments and talk of heavy shipments
to Liverpool. Three days' receipts
were large and cargoes are more free

generally satisfactory. At 1:30 p. m.
