Itween now and the issue of the gov
ernment report we look for trading
markets and believe sales of all grains
can be made today near yesterday's
close for a turn. Buyers looking at
present good accumulations of all
grains will not make purchases on ad
vances, which is but natural. Tariff
bill will be signed by the president
most any hour now. It means the
importation of Canadian oats, but not
of wheat. We therefore feel that for
the present purchases should only be
made on sharp breaks and the policy
as outlined above should be followed.
Little fear of Argentine corn importa
tions amounting to anything, their sup
plies being nearly exhausted. Hog
cholera reports are coming in to an
alarming extent, and we are impressed
with the great possibilities on the buy
ing side of all products, especially
sews all tne time The
Rains from the St. Lawrence ralley
and the lower lakea southward to
North Carolina and ehowera from the
southern plateau states eastward to
lxuilar.a hate resulted from the
northeastern low w hich is off the north
Atlantic coai-t and from the south
western depression which remains cen
tral over Ariiona. The northwestern
area of low pressure and higher tem
perature has moved from Saskatche-
vlclnity tonight and Saturday, with
probably showers. It will be warmer
tonight and cooler Saturday.
