H WAGNER'S REVIEW
Morning Grain Letter.
Chicago, Sept 16. Wheat cables
and lower, reflecting easier Win
nipeg market yesterday. Looks like
trading affair, but prefer working
from the buying side for possibilities
there is in same.
Corn cables lower. Showers and
rains scattered throughout the belt
Local stock of corn increased for the
week 56,000 bushels. Today's weath
er conditions are expected to change
the "trend of the market temporarily
and give lower prices.
Oats Local stocks show a slight in
crease for the week but are still heavy.
Canadian exports of oats have ranged
during last five years from 3 million
up to 10 million. Feel friendly on
minor reactions from here.
Wet Blanket on Grain.
Chicago, Sept 16. Weekly , govern'
ment forecast prophesying a fair
amount of moisture for the entire
grain belt acted as a wet blanket on
the grains today.
An active demand continues for cash
wheat. both to domestic millers and
exporters. The . southwestern states
report considerable wheat feeding and
millers are reporting good sales of
flour. We feel that this cereal is a
purchase at this leveL
Corn market today Is a disappoint
ment to its friends and further reces
sion is probable. We see nothing to
change our Yievts and advise the plac
ing of purchasing resting orders.
Oats held well. Receipts are mod'
erate considering the size of the crop.
Less heard of Canadian Importations.
The high plice of 'feeding substitutes
should prove a help to the price.
Reports of hog cholera, though not
yet a market factor, promise to be
one to the provision market
