RUSSIAN SHIPMENTS DEPRESSING IN WHEAT
Foreign Markets Lower, but the
Cash Wheat Situation Firm and
N. W. Receipts Moderate.
SEPT. SOLD ONE CENT ABOVE DEC.
Visible Increase of 1,753,000 Bu.—
Clearances 717,000—News of
the Grain Trade.
Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce, Sept.
28.— new factor came into wheat this mor
ning and helped depress the market. 'Russian
shipments -were larger that for a long while
and the quantity sent i out by Russia for the
past week ran close to the figure for American
shipments. Liverpool was ; [email protected]%d lower. This
lin itself was not especially depressing, and
was offset in a measure by the northwestern
receipts/which were not so heavy as had
been expected. The fact, however, .that Liver
pool was lower, and at the same time Russian
shipments v were nearly three times as heavy
as last week, made it look as if our late bull
'turn had "cost us some foreign business." The
inference was that while we were following
«he bulge in corn and putting lup our wheat
on the scare in that cereal, Russia increased
her wheat sales to England against our high
er prices. Under this impression trading be
gan, and it was difficult to work up 'much
bull support. December opened^ %@%c ; lower,
at i>Bc, and sold to ti7*4c May wheat opened
%@%c lower, at 7O?Jc, and sold to 70%@70%c.
Against this the local situation was firm.
Contract wheat was in. sharp demand in the
cash market, and September passed the De
cember option, selling a full cent over, to 69c.
At noon this cash strength began to be felt
and December sold back up to 68% c, May go
ing to [email protected] 1,4 c. The weather is tending
colder, but is generally *lry and favorable
for maturing corn and for the movement of
grain. Broomhall had estimated about 8,000,- ;
(HX» bu for world's shipments, but the figures
showed 9,344,000, the increase coming from
the larger Russian figures. America shipped
8,840,000 bu; Russia, 3,568,000 bu; the Danube,
fcSO.OOO bu; Argentine shipments were 192,000
bu; Australia shipped 525. 000 end India 338,000
bu. Liverpool stocks are unchanged. Th»
amount on passage increased 40,000 bu. The
■visible made an increase of 1,753,000 bu, mak
ing the total now 32,6215,000 bu.
Liverpool closed %d lower. Paris opened
lower after the holiday, and showed a loss
equal to l&@2c since Wednesday. Southwest
ern receipts were light, St. Louis showing 70,
--000 bu against 229,000 bu last year, and Kan
sas City 129 cars against 407. Primary re
ceipts were 1,813,000 bu, against 1,727,000 bu
last year, and shipments 1,121,000 bu, against
791,000 bu. Wheat and flour clearances, with
out Newport News, were 717,000 bu. Minne
apolis, received 599 cars and Duluth \ 445,
against 711 and 139 a year ago.

The cash wheat market was active, with an
exceptionally good inquiry for No. 1 and
choice lots in other grades, but not quite so
good a demand for the ordinary or poor lots.
Millers bought the No. 1 northern freely to
arrive, taking * some round lots at [email protected]%c

promptly. No. 2 northern sold at l%c under
In good part No. 3 ranged from 63c to 65c
according to quality. This grade, .as well as
other low grades, was unsettled, and in gen

with Saturday. ' Some of the very low prices
were on low grade lots that barely held their

/- INVESTMENT GOSSIP
, New York ,' to Watson: Market to-day re
flects the fact that a large element, the He
brew traders, : are absent from the street
which lessens the volume of trade. - We look
to see the Vanderbilt properties well support
ed, probably without a corresponding action
as regards ,the industrials, particular^ Cop
per, which will not rule as a favorite among
outside operators for a time. The Steel stocks
will probably not show weakness, as reports
are current of a not unnatural accumulation
of orders incident to the strike situation, as
also a corresponding exhaustion of stocks' in I
dealers' hands. The monetary situation will
continue to show Improvement during the
early days of the week in any event.
> New York to ; Sowle: ' Traders are rather
bearish, believing that Standard Oil 1 interests
are working Ito . bring about a lower range, of •
prices. > The Morgan: interests ■ are reported to
be still ■ bullish and there is undoubtedly fair- j
ly good' support sto their stocks while such
Standard Oil stocks *as St Paul and Copper
