Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce,
Aug. 26.Abnormally cool, very unsea
sonable and uniformly unfavorable weath
er was the showing this morning, and
wheat was up another cent, September
(Belling to [email protected]%c and December to 81%c
'in the first hour. Over the northwest
conditions were much the same as for the
past several days. The wind blew from
the southeast, drizzling rains were re
ported at scattered points, and the fore
cast posted on 'change was for showers
to-night and possibly Frldaj . At 9 a. m.
there were no further rains and to 10:30
a. m. no change of importance, the whole
northwest being threatened, but actual
precipitation not alarmingly great. Over
Iowa and Nebraska temperatures were
lower. Omaha had a total of 6.98 Inches
of rain since the storm at that point be
Igan, and Missouri was cooler and showery.
Out in Wyoming there was frost, which
scared the corn men a little by giving rise
to talk of possible frosts over corn. All
markets felt the effect of the uncertainty
attendant upon - weather conditions more
uncertain than any for a long time. Not
was the weather the only incentive to
strength.
Liverpool was %d higher and cable ad
vices were of continued bad weather in
the United Kingdom and of injury to
wheat on the continent. In Minneapolis
the receipts showed 257 cars wheat,
against 294, Duluth getting 37 against 5.
Chicago had only 51 against 184, Kansas
[City 97 against 142 and St. Louis 52,000
b against 181,000 bu. Local stocks are
'off by 150,000 bu for five days. Primary
I receipts were 67,000 tm against 935,000,
'and shipments 195,000 against 722,000.
Wheat and flour clearances, 655,000 bu.
The Price Current says corn is moder
ately improved, and that a yield of 2,000,-
000 bu or more is probable. The wheat
situation is not materially changed, but
the tendency in the interior is to sell corn
and hold wheat.
Holdredge. Neb., sent Veiboeff report of
.excessive rain and damage to corn. Much
.wheat will be lowered in grade and ren
dered unfit for milling ppurposes.
Eight loads were reported for export.

New York, Aug. 27.(Wall Street.)-
The opening movement of prices was ir
regular and within a very narrow range
for prominent stocks. Erie was carried
down % by realizing on the favorable an
nual report. Texas & Pacific and St. Paul
fell about as much. Among the 'special
ties Colorado Fuel rose 2 Anaconda, 3%,
and Wheeling and Lake Erie second pre
ferred, 4, while North American fell 1%.
v Professional traders resumed their sell
ing tactics of yesterday, and forced the
prominent railroad stbeks a large fraction
below yesterday's close. The western
stocks and coalers were the most affected,
large sales of Atchison and Erie diffusing
the weakness in kindred stocks. Ana
conda moved erratically and reacted 1%.
Snuff and Hide preferred dropped 2, and
Erie second preferred, Rock Island and
National Railroad of Mexico preferred
lost 1 International Paper preferred ad
vanced 1%.
Further progress towards a lower level
was made by stocks in which there were
many dealings. Delaware & Hudson sank
2 points the Eries, Reading, Wabash
preferred, Southern Pacific preferred,
Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago & St.
Louis, and 'Republic Steel preferred, 1.
Scarcely any of the usual favorites were
dealt in and speculation was more life
less than at any time since the market
lapsed Into its present rut. *
Prices drifteG steadily downward, losses
reaching a point in St. Paul, New York

Rock Island bonds were weak.
There was a dull hardening of the mar

Paris, Aug 27.French wheat growers,
particularly those of Norman dy and Brittany,
are suffering a tremendous disillusion m re -
gard to the present crop. It has been several
years since conditions were so favorable at
the outlet, but persistent and ill-timed rains
not only have hurt the wheat, but are inter
fering disastrously with the harvest. Many
acres of wheat have been ruined befort it
was possible to gather the grain.
"It looked at first as th o the crop would
amount to 130,000,000 hectoliters (360,330,000
bushels)," said an expert who was sent by
the ministry of agriculture to examine into
the crop prospects, "but now I should say
thai the losses of the farmers in the north of
France because of the rains will amount to
60,000,000. They are much disgusted with
the situation, which is sure to have a consid
erable effect upon our markets. In the cen
ter of France, and practically all Tourrame,
whole fields of wheat were inundated after
being cut. Ii my opinion the crop will not
he .is large as that of last year, which was
below the average."

The Carnegie Institution has located its
"Desert Botanical Laboratory," on the
shoulder of a mountain two miles west of
Tucson, Ariz. The Tucson Chamber of
Commerce has given the site, anfl -will in
stall a water supply and an electric plant
for the laboratory. The object of the un
dertaking is to study the plants charac
teristic of arid regions. The mountain on
which the laboratory is to stand and the
adjoining mesas possess a splendid repre
sentation of these forms of vegetation.
Proposed sites in Texas, New Mexico,ferred,

:
Arizona, California, Chihuahua and Son
ora were examined before the location
was finally chosen.
The effect of the use of pure and adul
terated tobaccto will be the study taken
up by Dr. Wilsy of the agricultural de
periments in the effects of adulterated
foods he is now conducting. It is his in
tention to take men who are regular
smokers and to ascertain their physical
condition as to heart action, breathing
and digestion while continuing the use of
tobacco under normal Conditions, and
then to have them suddenly cease the use
of tobacco entirely.
It is asserted in the department of agri
culture that cassava will make the south
ern states a great stock-raising country.
Slabsided cows from the pine forests
which were fed on cassava more than
doubled their weight in seventy-five days.
The cost,of the live weight produced was
1 cent a pound and the profit made in fat
tening beef 59 per cent. Hogs did equally
well.

FOREIGN KINGS
Cannot Be Arrested or Prosecuted While
In British Ter-
rVtory.
London Correspondent New York Tribune.
As the Sultan of Johore, sovereign of a
large kingdom to the north of Singapore,
subject to the suzerainty of the British
crown, is to pay a visit to this country,
after leaving Australia, it may be well to
draw attention to the fact that he cannot
be sued or prosecuted in any American
courts, from the jurisdiction of which he
will be just a s much exempt while in this
country a s any of the foreign ambassadors
at Washington. Attention has been called
to this prerogative enjoyed by foreign
sovereigns when they travel abroad by
the failure of a suit brought b'y a Mel
bourne artist against the sultan for pay
ment for a n illuminated pedigree of one of
the sultan's race horses, which he had
been commissioned to pain t. The Aus
tralian courts informed the unfortunate
artist that they could do nothing for him,
since a foreign ruler, even when on Brit
ish soil, could not be sued in any British
courts, and added that they could sug
gest no legal course by which he could
recover the money due him. The failure
of this suit serves to recall the fact that
the sultan's father had breach of promise
proceedings brought against him while
staying in England in the English courts.
In this instance matters were complicated
"by the fact that the old sultan, who "was
light complexioned, had wooed and won
the fair plaintiff, not a s sultan, but under
the name of Albert Baker. Indeed, it was
not until after the matter was brought
into court that the identity of the de
fendant with the Su'tan of Johore was
made known. A s soon a s this was estab
lished the case was thrown out of court on
the ground that British courts had n b
jurisdiction over a foreign sovereign, no
matter whether he was living incognito
as a private citizen or under his own name
and title, surrounded by roy al pomp.
There was a scandal about the matter,
and the British government intimated to
the sultan that it would be well for him
to return to his dominions, which he was
about to do when he died.
Professor Pfluger of the University of
Bonn maintains that one-third of all
the deaths registered in Munnich are due
to heart disease, brought on by the im
moderate use of beer, and that tobacco
also claims a large percentage of the vlc
I tima.

THE IRON TRADE REVIEW.
Cleveland, Aug. 27.The Iron Trade Revii
this week says:
The iron market is still dominated by th
feeling that prices havp not yet fully reflecte
the changing telation between supply and dep
Thus far tbe buying by the leading hata
vesting machinery interests has been the onl.f
conspicuous development. Its pig iron put?
cha*e for its gray iron and malleable foundrie
are in the neighborhood of 75,000 tons, an.
contracts for 15,000 tons of sheets and 6,001
tons of pipes and tubes have been added. IL
While some new modem furnaces are starting}
up. adding to the make of foundry iron, the con ,
railment movemont Is greater and may soon bej
come a factor of some moment. 1
