July Wheat Sells at Chicago for Loss than a Dollar a Bushel. A PROSPECT FOR LOWER PRICES A Weak Co?n Deal and Prices Suffer a Further Decline. PROVISIONS SOMEWHAT BETIER A Healthier Tone to the Speculation in Stocks on Wall Street. CHICAGO. L Special Teleerara to the Globe. 1 Chicago, Jane 29. — The strongest mar kets to-day have been provisions, which, despite the demoralization in^^^^H closed, bat a trifle under yesterday, and when pushed down in the general decline bounded up again in short order with a very encouraging show of life. Wheat and corn appeared to have no bottom, the •Jnly option in both going begging for akers, and August being regarded with great suspicion. The bright weather, warm and pleasant, promising favorable conditions for the winter wheat harvest now in progress, and just what corn nteds together with lower prices in New York and Liverpool and fairly good crop re ports, caused a weak and heavy feeling in all articles at the opening on 'change, which was increased by a rush of selling orders from the country where the absurd rumor that Phil Armour had failed or vied, or something equally unlikely had just reached. Wheat opened at 98j*£e, July advanced by eighths to lOOj^ from which point it receded to 99j£c at 1 o'clock aud on the call broke sharply to $%%a or l r .,c less than it was left on call yesterday. August opened at 1.01% against a close of $1.02i£ reached $1.02 and by 3 o'clock was back tO §1.01; J ;;. Corn opened at 52c July, lo under yes terday, and ended the day at SOj^a "There is no telling anything about the markets," said a member of the firm of H. P. Wad hames «fc Co. "Wheat flops up aud down so fast you can't handle it. lam a bear, but can't tell when bottom is reached. I've been looking for a long time. "When we think wheat is on the upturn and evary thing is safe, something knocks a Drop out and down she comes. Pork and lard are out of sight. A. very injurions thing for ocr market is the rumored failure of such houses as Ar mour's. It's ridiculous. He has bought an immense amount of lard I admit, but he ha 3 also sold it again. It is not on the market, but gone to the actual consumer. Hi has got the money for it and is per fectly safe." "The statement of McGeoch's affair," said Mr. Jno. R.Bensley, the receiver, to day "will not be out before the middle of next week. I cannot see that investiga tion materially changes the showing. The liabilities are $6,000,000. The banks who hold say $4,000,000 worth of lard are abont secured. The others are not. Noth ing further can be said now." The state board of agriculture has been figuring again on crop prospects, with the following results: The estimated in crease in the acreage of corn over that of 1882 is about 3 per cent., making the area of the state for 1383 over 7,500,000 acres . The condition indicates three-fourths of an average yield. The May reports indicated a yield of 20,000,000 bushels of winter wheat and the returns for Jane show a reduction of the crop equal to 4,000,000 bushels. The area of oats has inoreased 90,000 acres, making this year's crop not far from two and one half million acres, which are expected to produce 700,000,000 bushels. The condition of rye has im proved. Flax, rye and barley have fallen off 10 per cent. The decrease of 8 per cent, in the area of spring wheat planted makes the area this year 85,000 acre 3. The aggregate trading in wheat to-day wa9 quite large on speculatire account, but there were times at which the market ruled rather quiet. The feeling developed was very unsettled, and prices irregular during most of the session, and early in the day decidedly weak. The market opened from l^iaV.yC lower, and very unsettled, fol lowed by an immediate farther decline of t^'c. This weakness was a continuation of the weak feeling which set in yestt ""H afternoon; besides, corn was heavy, and] there was a general pressure to sell at the opening. The decline, however, brought ST. PAIL, MINK, SATUKDAY MORNING, JUNE 30, 1883. oat a better demaad, and as the offerings fell off somewhat, the market ruled firmer and prices were advanced lla(y,lj^cl l a(y,lj^c with August showing the most strength, again weakened, declining slowly about J^@lc, fluctuated and finally closed about 1 ' i; a l?ijC lower than the closing on 'change yesterday. On the call July and August sold off badly under a rash to sell, but the large futures were very firm . There were 68 oars received and less than 5,000 bush els reported shipped. While a good many looal operators have been buying for an upturn, yet it is predicted the prices will open lower to-morrow. Poole, Kent & Co. are advising their easterners to hold off for the time being. They say they admit not having the foresight to say just where the taming point shall bo, but those who have held aloof from the short side thus far they advise to consider the opportuni ty lost, for a considerable reaction might come quickly. Corn was unusually active to-day. Large offerings were the rule, which were readily absorbed for a while, but the crowd failed to stand up under continuous selling by large houses, and the market gave way. Walker was again a large seller of August, as were one or two other houses. L9ster bought a few of his shorts in, but he, as well as all the prominent shorts, have in creased their lines. Receipts are large, the weal'.ier fine, and wheat w* ■ k, all of which helped the baats*r -At the close of the morn ing session the situation looked decidedly lower, and a reaction is expected as long as such strong men remain on top of the market. At one time to-day there was a rally of 1 ( glj^c, but this was nil lost, and the clo«e on the board waa 2 i i'^o under yesterday, which liberal oJorintrs oa call, and the sale of 925,000 bushels increased to 2r : lie. Sohbs & Kershaw were buying on the call. There were :*,d'2 cars received to-lay and 166,000 bushels shipped. The charters were for 105,000 bushels. No. 2 oats in store were firmer. Sales were made at 32i£@322£c for car lots, which was %@,%c advance over yester day's price, and a round lot brought 33c. There was a fair shipping demand. Other grades cash oats were quiet, and sample lots were in fact dull and easy. Specu lative trading was fair early. Little was doing about the middle of the session, but more interest was shown in the market at the close. June opened %@,%c lower, but advanced lc and finally closed }^c better than yesterday, and at slight premium over July. July opened %@%g lower, reacted %c, and finally closed }i@,Uc lower. The market was lower all round early, on account of weakness in the lead ing markets. Vessel room for the ship ment of 225,000 bushels was engaged to day, and 107 cars were received. Rye was quiet but U'c lower at close. Considerable activity was noticeable in the market for hog products to-day, but the feeling was greatly unsettled. Early in the day there appeared to be more pres sure to sel!, especially on speculative account, and prices ruled lower on ail lead ing descriptions. About the middle of the session a sharp reaction set in, the demand was more active, and the parties who were short purchased with considerable free dom, and prices were rapidly advanced to outside figures. At this point the offerings were increased a^ain, and prices settled back to medium figures of the day and closed comparatively steady. Foreign ad vices still continue unfavorable, and a further reduction of 6d was noted in lard. Receipts product were fair and shipments of all kinds liberal and widely distributed 1 The market for mess pork was greatly unsettled and prices ruled irregular. Ear ly in the day the offerings were free and the demand only fair, resulting in 25ig30c decline on»the closing figures of yesterday. Later there was more pressure to buy, the competition for the offerings brisk, and prices rallied 40@45c. During the latter part of the session an easier feeling was developed again and prices receded 15@ 20c and ruled with considerable irregular ity with a smaller range to the close. Call values ruled irregular and lower for the near futures. July pork is 17}<jC cheaper than la *t evening, but the deferred futures are s<? 10 higher than then. War ren, Cadahy and others have been large buyers to-day and the steadiness of prices at the close indicated a feeling that would quickly respond to any encouragement and advance prices materially. Armour is working on the bull side, and the July deliveries now being provided for there is seemingly little or nothing to occur to de press values of products at present. Speculation to-day on lard was brisk, but prices ruled with considerable irregu larity. The market opened weak at 50; 7 1 o'c decline per 100 ponds on the closing figare of yesterday, which was followed by (Elntie. ■An mOa^%^ wMm *W*C»£ vt&zazF %ssae& <s> $ a further reduction of Srcf 10c. Later the feeling was stronger and prices rallied '20^; 25c, with free trading at the advancing scale. Toward the close the feeling was not so firm, and prices settled back again 5@7%c. The shipping demand was only fair. Call prices were a trifle lower, July olosed ">c less than last evening, August and September unchanged, October 2J^c higher and year 7j^o higher.

As of late the coalers were among the strongest, Reading selling above 59. There was a good deal doing in Denver. It was quite a favorite with the room traders for a quick turn. West ern Union was sold off on the announ ce ment that the decision of the court which was expected to be made this month would not be rendered until the fall term. Pullman Palace made an advance tol3B; 58.5 8. It closed last evening at 132 14.1 4 . The late quotations on Lake Shore, Michigan Cen!} tral, and Canada Southern are all ex-divi dend, the books having closed this after noon. The market became some what dull at the last, but prices remained quite steady, and, as a general thing, are higher than last even ing. Thsre appeared to be a good demand for Reading & Jersey Central in the final dealings. It was announced that an im portant alliance had been ejected between the Grand Trunk, Wabash and Baltimore & Ohio. . The contract, which is understood to b.2 for twenty years, gives the Grand Trunk a line to Chicago, shorter, it is claimed, than the Michigan Central. The route will Le, Grand Trunk to Detroit, Wabash, from Detroit to Auburn junction, Ind., and Baltimore &, Ohio, from Auburn junction to Chicago. Mr. Sage said, refer ring to the matter this morning. "This arrangement is not a combination against the Vanderbilt roads, and it does not im ply any hostility against any body. It is simply a business arrangement for mutual advantage. There has been some talk about building a cut off out there. This may postpone that for a time." The weakness of Missouri Pa cific is attributed to reports that the suit against Commodare Garrison is likely to bring out evidence which will be made the basis for attacks upon the legality of the foreclosure proceedings upon which the existing company was organized. Friends of the property say that the position of the company is impregnable, and that the people who sell the stock short en that hypothesis are likely to acquire wisdom«in the expensive school kept by experience. Bear rumors on St. Paul have [come from sources usually good. The fact which is to make the stock go down i 3 not stated but the rumor] been supported by good gelling. A prominent Vanderbilt broker said this afternoon: "I think affairs are moving admirably. We have had liquida - tions in stock?, liquidation in iron, ia cot ton, and now liquidation in grain and pro visions. This brings as down to hard pan and to a position from which we can start a new advance. If you look at the grain charts for years past you will find that the line indicating prices point downwarn in the main from Jnne towards September. The line indicating the prices of stocks, on the other hand, usually tend upward early in July. I think you will see the upward movement in stocks begins early next month and continues with considerable force until well towards autumn."
