OMAHA. Vav 1 1913.
, There were ten bctut. to very bull In
vrhf at n'ket at Chicago at the closo
or business yesterday. Yht matter of
sentiment may be called a Jug-handled
affair, but many I tliws. vho are oi.i i
wheat at Chicago are long grain at Min
neapolis. Those who have tak-sn this,
stand are men with a great deal of for
tune and who bollee the possibilities of
damage to the spring wheat crop arr fat
greater than any deterioration In the
winter wheat belt. At this late day thoae
who watch conditions surrounding tue
wheat market will remember that In
former years such men as James A.
Patten, W. R. Tlnnadoe, H. Waterman,
and many lesser lights, were nearly Al
ways found on the long side Of tha Min
neapolis wheat market at this particular
season. Some trudeis believe that tt Is
a safe proposition to hold a little wheat
at Minneapolis, but there are many possl
blllUeo on the bull side jl the nurket at
Chicago as well.
The winter wheat crop Is not made by
any means, although harvesting of this
grain will s ,on commence in the fni
southwest, and It will advance rapidly
until Kansas, tho ban'i.'r wliou alnte of
the country, Is entered by the reapers.
The matter of deterioration ha been al
most an entire stranger In the south
western wheat belt, but thosn who give,
attention to the grain know thero have
been wet harvests In years none by and
that losses have been great on this ac
count. That a great deal ot wheat hud
been damaged In shock as well as in
the stack by Insects and heavy rains
during and after harvest time.
Some of the larger houses In the
trade. esDecIallv those which make tha
cash wheat market a specialty, were last
night advlslns their customers to steer
clear of the bear side of the market on
the present decline. Cash wheat was Vc
higher.
The corn market wiui lower Yesterday.
partially In sympathy with wheat, but
mainly because of advices from the coun
try tnat larmers were wining to son
their corn a great deal more freely. A
farmer from O'Neill, Neb., who was on
the exchange yesterday, said tho corn
in that country was nearly all planted
and they looked for a banner year. Cash
com unchanged.
Several things combined to bring about
an easier feeling in the oats trade yostor
day. Messages told of rains at Illinois
points that were beneficial to the grow
ing crop. Cosh oats were unchanged.

726.000 bushels; corn, 76,000 bushels; oats,

CHICAGO, May 14. Rains which have
"Improved crop prospects in both the
spring and winter belts knocked sup
port today from under wheat. Texas
requests for bids on new shipments In
July accelerated the smash- The mar
ket closed heavy with a net loss of c
to ?iI4c Corn was off HV4c to o and
oats was down He to H&He- 1" Pro"
visions the outcome was 2Ho to 12Ho gain.
Bears In wheat made much of the fact
that each day the country has been get
ting nearer the period of early cutting
and that the chances of acldent to the
crop had been greatly reduced. In addi
tion cables were lower and Liverpool
sent word of Increased Canadian offer
ings to a cut-price basis.
Temporary upturns were brought In
wheat, owing to lightness of receipts at
leading terminals and because of talk
that moisture In the southwest had been
excessive.
There were also assertions of export
sales at Baltimore. Shorts covered
freely, but then the market found Itself
without any prop. General liquidation
which developed was in rapid progress
in the final hour, especially on the part
of speculators who were loaded with old
wheat.
Primary receipts of wheat were 307,000
bushels, against 424,000 bushels a year
ago. Seaboard clearances of wheat and
flour equalled 726,000 bushels.
Decided loosening up of offerings by
country owners weakened corn. Tne
rains were said to have given the crop,
on the whole, a good start. The weather
map proved too much for the bulls in
"Provisions worked higher, Influenced
by an advance at the yards. Packers
competed actively for control of tho cash

End of National
Conventions Come,

HARRISBURG, Pa May 14. Scr
tary of State William J. Bryan nddressed
the Pennsylvania legislature this after
noon on the distinction between democ
racy and aristocracy. He predicted that
before another general election the pres
idential primary would be so genernl
that there would be no' need to hold na
tional conventions and that presidential
nominees would be named not by party
leaders or bosses, but by the people.
Speaking of platform pledges, Mr.
Bryan said: "A man who violates a
party platform and betrays his party
and the people Is a worse criminal than
the man who embezxles money."
Speaking later at the banquet of the
Central Democratic club, the secretary
referring to the factional quarrel In the
democratic party lost fall, declared there
Is no need ot a progressive party. "If
the progressives stand for principle,"
said Mr. Bryan, "they will stand for the
democratic party. If the progressives be
lieve they could help the country they
should help democracy and not stand
aside and antagonize It. The democrats
made their fight for progressive measures.
Where were the progressives when the
democratic party years ago made its
fight against Wall street domination?''
The tariff bill Just passed by the house,
he declared, the best In a, generation.

SHEEP There was a greatly improved
feeling on the lamb market this morning,
as trade commenced early and prices
were regarded as steady to strong com
pared with the general run ot sales 011
both Tuesday and Monday. This took
place In spite ot the fact that receipts
tei Cktu.v large for n 'ihttrsday and in
addition tuday's fresh supply were about
eight rnr of lambs held over from the
preceding dny. Mexican wooled lambs
seem to meet with Just an much Inquiry
as the thorn grades and tha consequence
was that tha bulk ot the good offerings
moved freely and were nil disposed of
at a seasonable hour Of course, any
thing showing too much weight or lack
ing In quality did not sell so readily,
but sold In the same notches as yester
day and the day before.
A range of $3,16418.35 took most ot the
wooled offerings with three loads nt the
latter figure, thts being the top for the
day as against $8.30 on Monday. Shorn
offerings comprised a smalltr proportion
of the receipts than nt late and nothing
rallly choice nf handy weight was offered.
The majority ot the best kinds moved
at figures largely anywhere from $6.63
to $7.00.
As expected only n few ewes, whether!
and yearlings appeared at the yards,
which was not enough to Indicate any
material change in values. A two. car
shipment of very good clipped ewos was
weighed at $5.75,
For comparison the fresh receipts foot
up 22 cars ot 6.700 head as against 3,105
a week ngo, 7,183 two weeks ago and 1,884
n year ngo. ... .
