Saturday, but it is nevertheless true that
the eight and one-half millions of specie
shipment, less about $1.400,000 received in
operations with the Interior, must have
depleted reserves considerably, and there ls
reason for believing that next week's aver
ages will reveal a decided falling off in

Against the losses sustained the receipts

fldered, but as the crop season is at hand.
It is on'.y natural to look for a How of

indication of stringency in this. On the
contrary, bankers who have all along pre

in-2 market for securities In New York
was practically paralyzed last week. Deal
ings dwindled progressively until. In the
latter part of the week, the day's aggre
gate of shares sold dropped back to figures
not reached since the stagnation of Janu
ary, 17. There was even less life in the
bond market, the dally average sales hav
ing falle considerably below a million
dollars at par value. Beyond the slight
sagging tendency, which la the natural re
sult of this inanition, there have been no
imponani cnanges In prices. It would be
possible to detail quite a long list of dlf
lerent factors, all nrohahlv havlnp Orni

But these factors all converge in the money
market, and It Is there that the Index must
be watched for, which is to point the
direction of emergence from present condl-
The week has been imnortant for the de
velopments toward equalization of inter
national money market conditions. As in
terest rates in New York at present are
the cheapest in the world. It follows that
the process of equalization will raise rates
here while relaxing them elsewhere. The
center of greatest tension, as has been
evident for some time past, is London, and
how great that tension has become was
proclaimed to the world by the allotment
of over half the new British war loan to
American applicants, and the explanation
offered to Parliament by the chancellor of
me exchequer, that the very moderate en
couragement he had received from Eng
lish financiers had prompted him to accept
an offer already made by an Anglo-Amer
ican house to place half the Issue in the
United States. That is to say, from purely
fiscal considerations, he could place his loan
at cheaper Interest in the United States
than in England.
FIIANCE TOOK A HAND.
It has transpired during the week that
the New York and London bankers who
formed the underwriting syndicate had un
dertaken that $10,000,000 of the $25,000,000 al

days' Interest at 3 per cent, on the gold in
transit. In response to this concession by
the Bank of England gold engagements
were announced to go to London on
Wednesday. Then the Bank of England's
concession was met by the Bank of France,
which renewed its recent offer or interest
on gold in transit, and in consequence got
Dy Thursday's steamer. This de

ket was given a solar plexus blow by the
government crop report, which was much
more favorable than expected, and closed
at a decline of lYsC Wheat lost sie chief
ly through sympathy, and oats declined
c. Provisions closed 512c lower.
Sentiment among wheat traders at the
opening of that market was not very pro
nounced cither way, and the opening was
rather tame at 7C37GV4C for September, yes
terday's closing price being 76c There was
perhaps some disappointment over the gov
ernment crop report, which was not so
bullish as expected, but this was offset by
the continued hot weather and showers in
the Northwest, conditions regarded as ex
tremely unfavorable, but another factor
made itself felt soon after the opening, a
sudden and radical decline in corn. A drop
of lc was recorded in that market ct one
time, and the effect of euch weakness on a
market naturally rather heavy was im
mediate. Selling was quite heavy for some
time, principally by local traders who had
bought wheat yesterday ln the belief that
the government crop report would show a
big falling off in condition, and even after
this liquidation ceased the market showed
but little signs of recovery. The September
price was hammered down to 7540 before
the selling pressure was removed. There
was noticeable country selling at times,
and stop-loss orders were received by soma
commission houses. The close was heavy
at 754c. Northwest receipts were 2S1 cars,
against 227 last week and 22S a year ago.
Chicago recepits were 230 cars, 24 of con
tract grade. Aggregate primary receipts
were 1.027,000 bu, compared with 5S3.000 a
year ago. This fact undoubtedly influenced
some selling. Seaboard clearances of wheat
and flour were equal to 427,000 bu. The
visible supply is expected to show an in
crease Monday of 1,250.000 bu.
Corn was feverish and radically weak. The
government crop report was a painful ur
prlse to longs, who had been led to expect
much more bullish oflicial figures by the
complaints of damage which have been re
ceived of late, and liquidation was heavy
from the start. There was a general spill
ing out of long corn, with some selling by
local bull leaders, and prices declined very
rapidly. The September price finally broke
to 37c, but the demand improved after
the price had reached that point and
toward the close tho market became stead
ier. Country offerings were small. Re
ceipts were 16S cars. September ranged
from 37c to 23Uc, and closed lc lower at
Oats were dull for the most part, and
showed weakness throughout, the market
being influenced almost entirely by the
weakness of corn. Business was largely
local and of no special importance. Kleva-
tor people were the best sellers. Receipts
were 437 cars. September ranged from
211 to 22c, and closed Kc lower at 21'ic.
Provisions were heavy, influenced by the
grain markets and by the weakness of
hogs. There was very little speculative
Interest shown, moderate liquidation being
led by the packers. Prices ruled lower from
the sart. At the close September pork was
12c lower at $1LC0; Semptember lard, 5c
lower at $6.67, and September ribs, 7c
lower at $7.05.
Estimated receipts Monday; Wheat, 290
cars; corn, ISO cars; oats, 5U0 cars, hogs,

Aug. 1L Cattle Receipts, 10) ; shipments
none. As usual at the close of the week
there were not many fresh arrivals of cat
tle and the market was rather quiet, but
a good clearance was made on a basis of
yesterday's prices. Native steers weighing
1,323 lbs sold at $5.70, and Western cattle
weighing 860 lbs at $4. The receipts this
week show a decrease of only about 2,0
compared with last week and an Increase of
100 over the same week a year ago. Thus
far this year the receipts are less than
1,500 smaller than tho same period last
year. The market opened with a lower
tendency, in keeping with reports from
other markets, but with continued moder
ate receipts and a scarcity of choice stock
there was a more active trade later, and
toward the close of the week all good
kinds sold at an advance of at least 10c
in prices. Common to medium grades con
tinue plentiful, and with no improvement
in the demand it was more or less difficult
to transfer the consignments at irregular
but generally less satisfactory prices than
heretofore this season. There was a very
good demand both from the local and for
eign trade for good export grades, and no
doubt a larger supply could have been
handled at current prices. During the week
native steers sold as high as $5.90; heifers,
$3; cows, $4.35; bulls, $4.25; calves, $S, and
Texas cattle as high as $4.2-5. Quotations:

Hogs Receipts, 4,000; shipments, 1,000.
The hog market opened with buyers bidding
rather lower prices on account s of the
comparatively liberal receipts, but sales
men were not inclined to make any con
cessions and there were few transactions
reported at the tart. Later, with a much
better demand from local packers and
steady competition from shippers, the
trading was active and the average market
was not preceptibly different from yester
day. There were a few sales, however, that
were probably 2Vfcc lower, and for an ex
treme heavy hogs sold 2yc higher. The re
ceipts this week show a slight change com
pared with last week, and a decrease of
3,500 compared with the same week a year
ago. The receipts so far this year are 200,-
000 smaller than the same period last year.
The market this week has been somewhat
disappointing, but hardly surprising. Pack
ers for some time have Intimated that it
would not require a liberal number to fill
their wants, and they have all along pro
tested against following any advance in
prices. The unfavorable weather for ship
ping operations had a tendency to make
packers more independent this week, and
naturally they took advantage of the sit
uation and pounded the market. The re
sults, however, while no doubt in many in
stances unprofitable to shippers, were 5n
keeping with all other leading markets.
Shippers were more, liberal buyers than last
week on account of the reduction in prices,
and probably, could have used more had
not the risk in shipping been so great. The
range in prices at the low time in the week
was 15c lower than the high time, and
about 10c lower than the opening. Quota

There was the usual small Saturday's run
of sheep and lambs, and the market was
quiet with sales usually at steady prices,
compared with the way equal kinds sold
yesterday. The receipts this week have
been more liberal, showing an increase of
500 over last week and fully 300 over the
corresponding week a year ago. Thus far
this year there is a decrease of nearly 10,000
compared with the same period last year.
At the beginning of the week there was
little change in, prices, possibly on account
of the scarcity of good stock, but later in
the week the conditions were improved and
there was rather an active trade at some
advance in values. Good clearances were
made at current prices, and the market
for the week closed in rather a healthy con
dition, especially for choice stock. During
the week lambs sold as high as $5. CO and
sheep $4. Quotations:
