ONE CENT RECOVERY IN SEPTEMBER WHEAT
The Market Opened Weak, but
Turned Strong and Sold Over
683-8 C Near the Close.
FOREIGN MARKETS WERE LOWER
Clearances Fell to 209,000 Bu.—
% Good Cash Demand and Some
Foreign Inquiry.
' Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce, Aug.
a.—Wheat recovered lc to-day up to noon.
The market hardened after the opening and
the decline that has been continuing for the
past five days was stopped. September opened
unchanged from yesterday at 67% c, broke to
«7i4@67%c, and then turned upward, touching
68% c. Clearances of wheat and flour were
again disappointing/showing 209,000"bu, and
this brought enough' selling to check the
advance and give a slight setback. All the
foreign markets were off. Liverpool came %
@?4d lower. Berlin was lc lower. Antwerp
was off 12Vi centimes. Budapest showed i de
cline of %c and Paris came Hie lower. With
these discouraging foreign closes there was
the government weekly summary which
makes the general corn condition Improved
In Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, lowa, Kansas and
Nebraska. This was depressing in corn, and
secondarily in wheat, but at the end of the
report there was a saving clause to the effect
that the North Dakota wheat yields are re
ported disappointing on account of the targe
proportion of shrunken grain. Cash demand
was excellent. There were a good many
scalping shorts who were quick to cover at
the first indication of a turn. Chicago wired
that there was foreign buying there. St.
Louis receipts were 123,000 bu, against 127,000
bu. Kansas City receipts were 195 cars,
against 249.
■ Primary receipts were 1,216,0000 bu, against

--000 bu, against 661.000 bu. Minneapolis re
ceived 334 cars and Duluth 58, against 188
«nd 64 last year. v: y .v.v V :-_
The market was firm to the end, closing
September at 68%@68%c; December, 69%@
€9T4c; Chicago September- closed at 70% c.
j Cash demand was good.' Spot offerings were
taken up promptly and there was demand for
No. 1 and also for No. 2 northern to arrive.

day, and climatic conditions generally were
favorable, although there were traces of rain
in the spring-wheat country. September
opened unchanged to %c higher, at 70@70%c,

'-••-' Hides, Pelts, Tallow and Wool.
Andersch Bros., Minneapolis, say: The hide
narket Is steady and sufficient demand exists
to readily absorb receipt*. The present run
of stock, although somewhat lighter in weight
than usual,, is in good demand. : Heavy stesrs,
cows and heifers are in small supply with uo
great amount of stock carried either in the
country or packer markets. Calf and kip are
somewhat lower, as many manufacturers who
formerly used domestic skins entirely are
cow running their tanneries largely on im
ported skins. It is believed in the trade that
eventually the tariffs will be equalized either
by dropping the duty on hides entirely, or
raising skins In conformity with hides. Dry
hides are in fair demand, but supplies are
comparatively light. Horse hides show a
falling off in demand,*' and prices in conse
quence thereof have suffered.
'Present receipts of pelts consist largely of
lambs and shearlings. Demand for the for
mer is active, but owing to the very short
wool on shearlings, pullers claim, that they
are unable to use them advantageously at
present prices, '■ hence come accumulation ex
ists. - -
Conditions in the wool market show no ma
terial Improvement, although demand is fully
as good as last week. Country merchants as
well as growers are shipping scattering lots
to market, preferring to accept present valuea
to holding same out of season. We look for
a continuance of present conditions.
There is an active market for both tallow
and grease Melters are in the market lor
such lots as can be purchased on a basis low
enough for a profit In refining. The recent
London advance has helped the American
market In. tallow and in all classes of vege
table oils. . . '- f iv.-. ■ . ■ ,

CATTLE—Receipts here were not very
j large. Supplies east were very liberal, with
■ prices generally quoted 10c lower. The local
demand did not warrant any quotable decline
i in values, although buyers were somewhat
bearish In their views. Vteals ruled steady.
There were a few loads of stockers and
feeders received fresh in the yards. One load
of half-fat weighty grass western steers met
strong competition between packers and or
der buyers and finally sold to order buyers on
country account at J4.30.
