ANOTHER BULL TURN CARRIED SEPT. TO 70& c
The Wheat Market Active and Ex
cited, All the News Favoring
the Strong Side.
VERY HOT AND DRY EVERYWHERE
Jones' Report Sugra-esta Moderation
as to Northwest Eatimatei
(iencral News.
Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce, July 24.
—Wheat got back its strength this morning.
yesterday's weakness was thrown off prompt
ly, and the market was again on the higher
level. September opened at a straight 2%c
advance over the previous close, with the
first trade at 70c. The early buying put it to
70% c, a new high point on the late bull turn.
Following this came realizing and a slow,
sagging tendency, carrying the market off
14e, September striking 69c. About noon this
liquidating depression appeared to have spent
Its force, the market turned up again and
September sold to 70% c, December selling to
71% c.
Chicago had an excited opening with a
scramble for wheat, this following the higher
sorthwestern markets. Commission houses
were the principal buyers, but there was said
to be some buying for foreign account.
General conditions favored an advance. The
drought wae unbroken, the government week
ly summary and the report of Snow were bad
as to corn conditions, and Liverpool, against
out decline of yesterday, came in %@94d
higher. This Liverpool advance was very
unexpected, and Broomhall cabled that it was
on bad advices received in Liverpool as to,
Russian crops, and on rainy weather in
France. With this naturally strong news.
there was the report of Jones covering the
Bortbwestern situation. This report, which
re»d only as a general survey was interest
ing, it being the first report put out present
ing the more conservative view as to ths
probable total yield in the three states.
It suggests that while the northwest
1» probably in line for a satisfac
tory yield, yet extreme optimism and
talk of a phenomenal crop is not war
ranted now, however favorable may have been
the outlook some time ago. A great deal is
seid to depend upon North Dakota and any
unfavorable development in thst state during
the next week or ten days would mean a ma
terial lessening of the prospective iotal yield.
Aside from this the report suggests the possi
ble passing of the corn crop ruin as the lead- !
Ing factor. While there will be no shade lees j
of interest in the corn crop and general !
southwest situations, :t Is probable the trade
will watch :he northwest and especially North ]
Dakota with increased interest from now on.
As yet there is no relief in the southwest,
or at least nothing: thf.t can be called relief, j
A few showers fell in North Dakota and i
Manitoba, but the entire west and southwest
country remains hot uud dry. Cooler weather
Is predicted for the northwest, but the tem
peratures early this mi rning were indicative
of a day to follow probably as hot as any
previous. At 7 a. m. the thermometer in i
Minnesota and through the Dakotas showed a |
scattered range between 62 and 78 degrees. |
The late forecast said fair and cooler to-day
and Thursday, and possibly cooler to-night
for Minnesota end South Dakota.
The Washington weekly crop summary
■ays the corn prospect has diminished during
the week, and that early corn is practically
ruined in Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri and
Oklahoma. Late corn in these slates will
make half a crop with rain. Spring wheat
harvesting, "t says, is under way, and the
yield is shown to be impaired in South Da
kota and southern Minnesota, but will be
good in North Dakota.
Liverpool closed %@%d higher. Paris was
lMc higher, and 30 to 35 centimes up on flour.

timistic Ideas on Corn.

Recoveries Follow, but the Market
Lapses Into Dull and Droop
ing; State.
New York, July 24.—WaH street had some
misgivings this morning over yesterday's op
timistic ideas of the relief to the corn crop,
and the Grangers and Pacifies were sold free
ly. Thirty-five hundred shares of Atchlson
were sold at 72 to 71%, compared with 73%
last night, and 2,500 shares of Union Pacific
at 98% to 97%, compared with 100%. St.
Paul was depress d 2%, and Southern Pacific,
| Atchison preferred and Missouri Pacific from'
1% to 1% Tennessee Coal dropped 1%. Rock
Island was lifted %.
The opening decline met suport which ral
lied the leaders a point or more, but prices
i yielded again to below the opening. The
loss In St. Paul reached 3%, Union Pacific 3%
and Missouri Pacific 3%. Active stocks *>.-.
erally were 1 to 2 points under last night-
There was a dull and feverish rally again be
fore the hour had expired. Missouri Pacific
rallied 2%, St. Paul and Tennessee Coal 2,
and United States Steel a point. The other
| Grangers were up over a point.
The market fell back into its dull and
drooping state, and recoveries were lar^elyl
lost again. Union Pacific was marked up
aggressively to 99%, but with slight effect on
the general list outside of Southern Pacific.
The stock fell back again over a po:nt and
fluctuated feverishly. Chicago Term.nal
Transfer dropped 2%, and National Lead 2.
The Pressed Steel Car stocks were firm on the

There was a rise of 1% in Pennsylvania, 1%
in Norfolk & Western ard 2% in Baltimore &
Ohio preferred. Otherwise ihe market was
listless and offered no feature.
There were sharp advances In a few stocks,

developed a feverish tcne in the late deal
| ings, which resulted in some wide declines,
the grangers leading the movement as on
former occasions. Atchison snd St. Paul got
back to the lowest of the day. The decline
was on very light dealings, and the market
steadied again. There were slight rallies, but
the closing was feverish and irregular.
Bonds were dull and heavy.

make the rate, as regular shippers are doing
business at 40 cents, and claim they are get

Chicago— a grain charter was bnade up
to > noon to-day. The line - agents came on
change early and worked late in their en
deavor to get , enough grain to fill out car
goes. At least a dozen . boats have been
turned from grain to Iron ore the past few
days. Comparatively little will be done in
grain freights until the flurry in the markets
over crop damage comes to an end.
