J About Noon To-day a Few Reports
32. Hinting at Damage Began
. ^ Gonung In. ^
Jhe Southwest Is Dangerously Wet,
tfrat It Is Late to Expect
Traders Not Quite So Afraid of Ar
mour and Some Short Selling
Noticed.
. Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce, April 29.
The wheat market opened this morning with
little of new influence in the view, no develop
ments of importance over night, a dearth of
gossip of interest, light trading and slightry low
er range of prices. The easier feeling that
marked the course of the market yesterday was
shown again to-day. Tradeis seemed to have
thrown aside the great fear of the short side
that ruled a while ago when the Armour influ
ence was more In evidence, and on the wiiverlng
following the opening there was considerable
sh6rt selling, or, at least, what looked like short
selling. The May option, having opened at
- 74*&e. sold down to 74%@T4%c on this. The
weather was generally rainj except In the terri
tory where it took the form, of snow, and pre
cipitation extended over the western wheat area
almost from end to end. It was below the
freezing point in Minnesota, the Dakotas and
Nebraska. Kansas and Iowa had very heavy
rains. Kansas City wired that reports from
Lenora. Edmond, Logan and Portis aie of heavy
rains last night, and snowing this morning and
freezing. There are some reports of snow from
Portis to Downs and from Downs to Stockton
of heavy rains last night, with freezing now.
From Downs to Siottville there were good rains
of from one to three inches and it is still driz
zling. From Scottville to Greenleaf, there were
good rains last night, and it was still raining
lightly. From Barnson to Atchison there were
verv good rains
The cables brought in little that was new.
Liverpool closed '
that the Liverpool market is steady, with small
stocks, which are well held. The weather, both
in England and on the continent, continues favor
able for the growing crops. There is nothing
in the weather in this country that can harm
winter wheat, unless there should come a very
cold turn. In fact, the rains in theh southwest
will be of great benefit to the growing crop. In
regard to corn. Rycroft says much depends on
the weather and the movement to market. Cash
demand is. verv quiet. Merchants abroad hesi
tate to buy freely, being afraid of the condition,
as a good many arrivals recently have been" in
bad shape. This tend* to
markets steadv and their stocks small, but is not
a bull factoi for our market.
Minneapolis stok have decreased over 300.000
bu this week so far Local receipts were very
light, onlv 8-i cars coming in, against 115 last
year, Duluth getting 17, against 47. Primary
receipts were OIS.OOO bu. against 220,000 bu,
and shipments 247.000 bu. against 383.000 bu.
"VTheat and flour clearances equaled 260.000 bu.
New York Reported 15 loads of wheat taken
and five loads* of corn The clearances were a
disappointment, many traders having looked for
a better showing.
After noon, a few reports came from the
southwest of a bad nature. Verhoeff had one
stating that there had been actual damage around
Hodgeman. Iate they began piling in. but
were very conflicting. Everything wowm seem
to depend upon how low the thermometer may
go. Conditions are certainly ripe for immense
damage in case of very cold weather, but, on the
other hand, it is rather late in the season to
look for a freeze. A Chicago bear wired that
there was a message from St. Louis telling of
some crop damage in Missouri, but nothing at
all serious. Armour got the message and ad
vertised it. Pei- contra, the dry spots in Kan
sas and Oklahoma have good rains. We can
stand. saj-s this man. 10 per cent loss in acre
age and condition and then produce 450,000.000
bu winter wheat, and we are not going to lose
10 per cent either way.
The market closed at 74/ for May and
at 74%@74%c for July.
The cash market was not very active, receipts
being too light to afford much opportunity for
business. Demand was only fair.

New York, April.Opening prices advanced in
continuation of the upward movement in progress
late yesterday. The movement was without
animation and dealings were small. Sugar rose
1% apd Amalgamated Copper %. Rubber
Goods preferred, dropped 2 point*. ' Colprado
Southern1
first preferred declined 1% and New
Haven 1 point.
Buying for the long account was stimulated by
the opening show of firmness and the subsequent
absorption of theEries and, local tractions. New
York Central fell off a point at one time, which
caused a momentary check to the rise, but that
stock soon rallied and the general list went .up
again. Railroad stocks moved within' narrow
limits, but the firmness of the transcontinental
group contributed to the market's tone. The
Erie stocks moved np [email protected]% on yesterday's good
earnings statement. Delaware & Hudson* St.
Paul. Canadian Pacific, Amalgamated, Metropoli
tan Street Railway and Manhattan were also a
point better.
Prices eased off during the second hour for lack
of demand rather than for any pressure to sell.
Reactions reached a point only in St. Louis &
San Francisco and Sugar. There were advances
of [email protected] points by Morris & Essex, Detroit South
ern preferred, Rubber Goods and Railway Spring.
The bond market at noou was quite broad, but
dealings were small and changes irregular.
Fresh buying orders opcurred in the Erles on
the decline, and they rallied well above their
mqrning prices. A block of 5,500 shares of the
common stock was met at 35, which was readily
absorbed, and the price went a fraction higher.
The second preferred made the largest gain,
touching 55%, a riBe of nearly 3 points. Good
rallies were made elsewhere, and Louisville rose
1% and Leather preferred 1.
While the demand foe stocks was slight, there
was a steady appreciation in values, which
reached substantial proportions in a number of
cases. The persistent buying of the Eries acted
as a tonic. Some of the more important ad
vances Included a point or over in Northwestern,
Ontario & Western, Wabash preferred, Baltimore
& Ohio, Illinois Central and National of Mexico

Bismarck, N. D., April 29.Light to heavy
rains fell in nearly every portion of the state
the past week, mostly on Thursday, in some
places retarding work for a day only, and in
others stopped it for the rest of the week. Some
snow fell in the northern and western portions.
Killing frosts were general, and, while only a
little has been sown in some sections, in others
it is practically finished The favorable weath
er, if it continues, will cause a larger amount
of wheat to be sown than was first contemplated.
Some oats and barley have been ROW n in different
sections Grass is starting well in all parts of
the state, although backward for the season.

FINANCIAL GOSSIP
New York to Charles E. LewisUnless fur
ther engagements of gold for export are an
nounced to-day there'should te some improve
ment in the stock market aa the franchise tax
decision is now out Of the way, has been dis
counted and stocks are scarce, a fact which
was evidenced yesterday 'when' the" shorts = en
deavored to cover, disclosing an oversold market.
President Winter of the B. R. T. says rela
tive to the franchise tax decision: The contin
gency of an ultimate adverse decision has been
provided for by the company,, and sums of
money have been set aside at regular intervals
so that the enforcement of the law will not
work any hardship at the present time.
Rock Island reports show a total income for
March of $1,397,000 and for nine months $13.-
000,000. The net and total Income, $14,200,000.
Whalion, Case & Co. from New YorkSpecu
lative discussion reflects disappointment over
the continued dullness, but larger commission
houses are not deterred from the long side
either by apathy or by such developments as
franchlse
old shipments and the adverse decision in the
tax case which have furnished pro
fessional traders with ftesh incentives to sell.
It may be stated that people who were bearish
on Amalgamated Copper for over a year and a
half are now firmly of the belief that hence
forth and for a long time to come, it can be
safely dealt in by those who buy when it looks
weak.
The Financial Chronicle saya: The large gains
in net earnings reported by the Baltimore &
Ohio are ascribed to the economies which are
now possible in handling the company's traffic.
The improvement in net profits is estimated as
likely to bring the total sum this year up to
9 or 10 per cent.
There has been a pronounced improvement in
the silver situation during the last three months,
the price having advanced about 3 cents an
ounce during that time. While it is true
that there has been a large increase in the de
mand in the country, principally in connection
with the purchases by the government for coin
ing Philippine pesos, there has also been a
heavy foreign demand.
Canadian Pacific net earnings for March in
creased by $203,650.
New York to Watson: Expect dull and irrig
ular traders' market, tho prices should improve
somewhat.
Waldorf Stock Gossip to Watson: Speculative
discussion reflects disappointment over the con
tinued dullness, but the larger commission
houses are not deterred from the long side
either by the prevailing apathy or by such de
velopments as gold shipments and adverse de
cision in the franchise tax case, which have fur
nished professional traders with fresh incen
tives to sell. Comment is made that the metal
can be spared that the tax decision was pretty
generally expected and that from now on fac
tors of greater importance will influence prices.
Thus it is pointed out that while two weeks
ago there were universal predictions of many
strikes around the first of May possibly two
thirds of these threatened troubles have since
been settled. Colncidentally money rates have
greatly related and winter wheat has made
such progress as to assure au unprecedented^
favorable government crop report next month.

BRAIN TRA3JE &0SS1?
St. Louis wired Stephens: Crop complaints
dropping in from all directions now. Just saw
letter from Mexico, Mo., stating wheat had
gone back to 20 per cent on account of the
Hessian fly.
Verhoeff from MilmineOur Holdridge, Neb.,
office wires: Heavy frost and sleet there- last
night. Crops badly damaged.
Logan Wired Stephens: It looks as if there
was July wheat for sale around 71%c by Ar
mour brokers, but the market slipped away
from there so easily that they were unable to
dispose of much. More or less long wheat
came out on stop orders from 71%c to 71%c.
The bulk of the buying seems to be against
puts. Peavey is selling a little July wheat at
71%c.
The Chicago Board of Trade officials have de
cided to drop Fort William and Port Arthur,
the two Canadian points, from the visible sup
ply statement. Tne reason for tb.e action is
that with no exchanges at these pointB the fig
ures are not reliable.
Weather forecast- Wisconsin, Minnesota, rain
or snow colder. Iowa, rain, turning to snow.
Nebraska, snow, colder. Kansas, rain, turning
to snow: colder. North Dakota, snow. South
Dakota, fair, warmer.
Farnum to Lewis: I don't think the buying
in wheat at 71%@72c is good. The trade got
short at 71%c and are simply getting it back.

discussion in North DaVota this spring over seed
ing macaroni wheat. The farmer who
are sticklers for high grades and proud of the
reputatiou of the No. 1 bard protest against the
increased acreage given macaroni, and assert
that it will ultimately be mixed with the other
kind and have a tendency to lower the grade.
Farmers who have raised that particular kind
of wlieat are going into tne crop this year more
extensively than formerly. They declare they
get from 5 to l" per cent more wheat to the
acre, and practically the same prices.
