JULY BROKE TO 65c, RECOVERING IN PART
Bearishness Shown at the Start,
and Little Effort Made to
Support the Market.
HARVESTING IS PROGRESSING
French News Wu Bullish, but Paris
Shovred. No Change—wit of
the Session.
Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce, June
20,—This market led in a weaker turn this
morning, and sold off a full cent, July go
ing to 65c on a sharff break in the first hour.
Duluth broke and Chicago was off as
well, but the local pit Beemed to hold a lit
tle more bearish sentiment than other mar
kets. The weather map shows conditions
very favorable. The most important change
for the better is found in the dry weather
et present prevailing in the southwestern
districts, wh«re harvesing operations are go
ing on. Up to yesterday there was fear that
rain might interfere with the work, but this
morning telegrams report no rains in Kan
sas or Oklahoma. Further north, over Ne
braska and lowa and extending into South
Dakota, there were showers. A cablegram
from Paris said that the French wheat crop
is far short of the average and that more
than double the quantity of wheat will have
to be Imported from America than in 1900.
The crop, it was said, has been retarded by
cold weather. The sentiment that would nat
urally be expected to follow this report was
not reflected in the regular market advices,
Paris closing wheat unchanged to 5 centimes
lower. Neither do the reports of deteriora
tion la the French crop agrea with the offi
cial estimate, which makes the total pros
pective yield 310,000,000, or about the same
as last year, and some 20,000,000 bu under
the average yield of the past ten years. Ber
lin closed htc higher. Budapest was %c
higher. Liverpool was up %d, but at the
close was unchanged from yesterday,
Primary receipts were 468,000 bu, against
619,000 bu; shipments, 831,000 bu, against
162,000 bu. Clearances wheat and flour, 579,
-000 bu. corn, 263,000 bu. Minneapolis received
231 cars and Duluth 98, against 251 and lie
last year.
The market closed on reaction from the
low point and fairly steady, July at 65% c;
September, 65% c. On the dip, July was a
full Vie under September and under to
close. Chicago closed July at 69*4 c.
The cash market showed a good demand
at first, but this was checked later by the
sharp decline in the option. . No. 1 northern
Bold at 67%<g"68c, which was lVs@2c over the
July price, but this was hardly a fair basis
for the entire grade, some lots going rela
tively lower on late sales. No. 2 northern
aold at 65%®66c. Xo. 3 brought 62@64c. Re
jected sold at 60@62c and no grade from 55
to 60c.
THE FLOUR MARKET
Demand Lessened by the Slump in
Wheat.
The market shows no especial change aside
from a less active tone and a disposition to
go slow for the present. The mills are all
grinding heavily, and for one reason capacity
1b being pushed to take advantage of present
eastern rates, an advance being scheduled for
July 1.

STOCKS ABE HIGHER
But Prices in London Are on a Still
Loftier Scale.
DECLINE FOLLOWS THE OPENING
Minneapolis .V St. Louis and lowa
Central Strong and •
Active. V
New York, June 20.—London made some
wide advances over night iv prices of Ameri
cans. The opening quotations here were
higher than last night generally, but not
up to the London parity. Union Pacific ad
vanced %, compared with a gain of 1% in
London, and St. Paul rose" 1%, compared with
an advance of 2 1 / 4 In London. There were
gains' of about a point here in Atchison, St.
Louis and San Francisco, Minneapolis & St.
Louis, and Colorado Fuel and Sugar rose
1^:. A few stocks showed small fractional
losses.
International stocks were the leaders in the
decline, which set in directly after the open
ing. The failure of the market to reflect any
of the London strength discouraged long
buying and professional bears offered leading
stocks. St. Paul, St. Louis & San Fran
cisco common and Atchison lost their ad
vances and Amalgamated Copper, Missouri
Pacific and St. Louis & San Francisco second
preferred sold I*4@2 under yesterday's close.
Liquidation was renewed in Colorado Fuel
and it lost 7 points, and Tennessee Coal over
2. Prominent stocks generally were under
pressure but there were scattered points of
strength in the inactive quarter. Minne
apolis & St. Louis improved 4y 2 , General
Electric 2% and North-Western, Chicago
Great Western, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chi
cago & St. Louis, Consolidated Gas, Distilling
preferred, Malting preferred. Smelting pre
ferred and lowa Central issues I@3.
lowa Central stocks were unusually active
and strong in sympathy with Minneapolis &
St. Louis. The common stock rose 4 points
easily to 42, and the preferred 3*4 to 69%. As
the general selling became less, the traders
bid up special stocks. St. Paul, Atchison,
Union Pacific and Southern Pacific got up to
about their opening figures. Vanderbilt
stocks were bought in anticipation of dividend
announcement to-morrow. Colorado Fuel re
covered 4 points, Tennessee Coal 2%, and
Chicago & Eastern Illinois reacted 4% and
rallied 3%. General Electric extended its
gain to 8 points.
The market fell into a condition of semi
stagnation. Gains in the lowa Central stocks
reached 3 for the common and AVz for the
preferred, and Colorado Fuel scored a full
recovery of 7 points. Minneapolis, St. Paul
& Sault Ste. Marie rose IVi and the pre
ferred 1%. General Electric rose 15 points in
all. The weakness of Amalgamated* Copper
which got 4 points below the highest, affected
the general market. North-Western dropped
3, Lackawanna and Rock Island 2, and Vir-
ginia-Carolina Chemical 2%. Amalgamated
Copper rallied 2 points on the declaration of a
dividend but the closing generally was dull
and heavy.
Bonds were firm.

New York Cotton.
New York, June 20.—Cotton opened quiet
and firm, with prices up 2 to 5 points on
room and some foreign buying, prompted by
a firmer ruling of the Liverpool market than
expected, and surprisingly good trade ac- [
counts from Manchester and Fall River. The
market hardened rapidly. July advanced to
,8.24 c, August to 7.75 c, October to 7.41 c and
.January to 7.42 c. There were reactionary
movements later, but the undertone of the
market held firm. Spot closed dull, 3-16 c

CATTLE—The cattle division to-day offered
only a few fresh arrivals. There was no
material change on conditions east and prices
here on strictly good beef steers ruled firm,
while everything that was not good in butcher
cows and heifers and particularly grassy
kinds, ruled rather slow at the 25c to 50c de
cline quoted during the past two weeks.
All good quality stockers and feeders sold
quickly at prices strong at the recent
strength. Common kinds were slow.

IX'VESTMEXT GOSSIP
& Co., from New York: Our special
able reports that market for Ameri
cans strong and a quarter to one and a quar
ter above parity. Stock speculation is now
dominated by possibility of dearer money be
fore the end of the month-, and, while there 13
no reason to warrant any higher rate than 5
per cent, calling of loans may cause a tempo
rary flurry and high rate. Laelc of confirma
tion of the reported St. Paul deal, uncertainty
regarding the money market and absence of
outside support are against any upward move
ment at present and prices show a disposi
tion to sag. The disbursements for the July
interest and dividends will release a large
amount of money that will have to find em
ployment, and a considerable part of this
will come into market.
Verhoeff, from Milmine: London prices
quarter to one higher. St. Paul and Uniou
Pacific feature. Speculation dominated money
situation. Expected dearer money before end
of month. Traders will sell on" advance in
money rates.
New York stock gossip: We have to re
port a rather unsatisfactory market to-day
and lower prices for the general range of
securities. It cannot be said that there is
any very distinct reason for the decline in
Drices. and it may properly be attributed
more to a disposition on the part of small
holders to realize than to any more impor
tant element. Some disappointment has been
felt by holders of Smelting securities that no
notice was taken of a dividend on the com
mon stock at this time, but metter informed
parties did not anticipate that any would be
taken. Wall street is so impatient that it
is unwilling to await combinations and ar
rangements which are frequently being made.
On the other hand, it is equally prone to
anticipate them; therefore, it is difficult for
conservative Judgment to define the present
status correctly. Doubtless, there are forces
at work which, in a narrow channel, may in
crease certain values, but, on the other hand,
the general market is tired and shows the
effect of overspeculatiOH, and also of the
very high prices to which many n&n-interest
producing securities have advanced. We do
not feel at all alarmed about the market in
the sense of looking for a sharp decline, but
we anticipate a dragging and unsatisfactory
condition of affairs for some . weeks. The
large and successful speculators are not go
ing in at this time and the smaller traders
are likely to become discouraged and to sell
out their holdings. This means a market
which, from the speculators' point of view,
is unhealthy. On the other hand, it must
not be forgotten that large amounts of money
will be seeking investment arid good dividend
paying securities are more likely to advance
than to decline. As a conclusion, therefore,
we should be disposed to confine our opera
tions more to securities that are likely to
be in demand for investment purposes rather
than to the more purely speculative ones.
SPECULATIVE GOSSIP
Chicago, to I. G. Andrews & Co.; "Cash
wheat people here are generally inclined to
view the situation as bearish. Business in
old spring is light and poor demand for
wheat."
Price Current: 'JWheat crop conditions
are fully maintained. Where harvested, it
is meeting expectations. Corn is Improving
and is of nearly average condition. Oats
are improving, but are short crop in surplus
states."
Kansas City receipts: Wheat, 72 car*,
against 57 last year; corn, 28 cars, against 22
last year; oats, 8 cars, against none last
year.
Logan, to Jolley: "Light showers have
fallen through the southwest in the past
twenty-four hours. Weather conditions are
favorable. Steadiness here yesterday was
due to shorts covering on fears of unsettled
weather. We see very little on which to base
an expectation of an advance. Advise sell
ing on rallies. Corn keeps strong on both
country and local speculative buying. Light
receipts are the principal bull card. De
mand is poor and delivery day approaching;
cash corn selling %c under July. Advise
taking profits on long corn. Provisions are
steady and firm. No change In the general
situation."
DAKOTA GRAIN CROPS
General Stand on the Prairies as
Good aa Ever Known.
Specials to The Journal.
Mayville, N. D., June 20.—Those who know
say they never saw crops In better condi
tion than they are now. Wheat Is magnifi
cent. In some places It is so rank that a
heavy rain would be likely to make It lodge.
Flax is not looking so well as wheat.
Milbank, S. D., June 20.—Crop conditions,
in this vicinity are about the best ever
known. Small grains are looking beautifully,
the stand is even and the color as fine as
could be desired. The only "drawback to a
bumper crop is the fact that, while wheat
was stooling there were a few hot and dry
days, which injured the stools. Present con
ditions would warrant the prediction of an
average crop.
Woonsocket, S. D., June 20.—The crops in
this section are in as good condition as ever
known. Over five inches of rain have fallen
since June 1 and the soil is thoroughly
soaked.

Chisholm, down-bound, is reported aground at
the Middle Ground at Round Island. She is

Milwaukee life-saving crew has been removed
by order of Secretary Gage. He preferred
charges of insubordination. against two of
his men, but as a result of the examination
he lost his own position.
Cleveland — Vessel owners would at
tempt to force an advance to 45c In the Mil
waukee rate, but for the fear of retaliation
from shippers to Lake Superior, where coal
is scarce and vessels plenty. Otherwise there
is no sign of a change in the freight market.
Detroit—The western liner Arabia left for

Chicago.—Charters were made for boats to
load corn to Buffalo at 1% cents. For the
past two weeks the rate has hovered between
1% and 1% cents, and vesselmen who offered
shippers boats generally found it the latter
figure. The line boats have been taken care
of for the present and a number of charters
of outside boats were paced during the past
two days.
Cleveland—Duluth shippers to-day paid 3
cents on wheat to Buffalo for vessels to
load during the last half of September, and
that business has strengthened the market
all around. Tonnage to move about a half
a million bushels was placed and more fig
uring is being done. Ore cargoes were
offered freely and rates firm. Milwaukee
coal boats are scarce and owners are taking
60 cents.
Buffalo.—The active loading of coal during
the past few days has practically cleaned up
the stock in sight. The scarcity affects all
of the docks. To-day's charters were the
Lewiston and Mauch Chunk for Chicago at
40 cents; Cranage, Duluth. 35 cents; Fasiett,
Manitowoc, 40 cents.
