Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce, Sept. 2.
September wheat made a sensational Jump this
morning, going up almost 3 cents In short order.
December was strong also, but in no such de
gtee as September. A bull market was on In
wheat from the start. The weather Is bad for
threshing. Reports from South Dakota are bad
In general, and In many Important localities It
will be impossible to resume operations before
Monday next, even if there should be no more
rain. If there is to be more rain, as now ap
pears likely, then the situation will be all the
worse The wheat is not coming in. The
northwest had only 101 cars, against 398 last
year, and the showing of only 14 cars In Duluth,
against 318, was extremely bullish, even allowing
for the fact that the last yeir figures are for
two dajs. Minneapolis had only 177 cars, or
108 less than this day last year, when 285 were
lu, and Chicago had only 137. against 231.
X
the southwest there was little better to show,
Kansas City receiving 214 cars, against 285, and
St. Louis 83, against 129. Locally there is the
prediction for an Increase of 80 000 bn in ele
vator stocks, this based on reports to this mor
ning. But during the session elevators received
heavy loading-out orders and it is more than
likely this intiease will be wiped out by Satur
day unless receipts Increase, materially In the
meantime. With all the strength due to the
light movement there was an excellent demand
for oash wheat, some of It coming from buyers
vtho persistently held off for the past day or two
but came in this morning.
Oyer continental Europe the weather Is bad,
and Paris made a Jump of [email protected] centimes on
wheat and 20rt?60 centimes on flour Liverpool
was strong, closing %@%d higher. Broomhall
cabled strong message on wheat. Sentiment
everywhere appears firm Minneapolis millers
reported good demand and foreign buyers taking
flour at full prices up to this morning, when they
balked at the further advance on clears, but
bids were verv close even at that.
September wheat, having closed yesterday at
82%^82^c, was up to bZ%c at the opening.
A few buving orders put it to 85c in straight
jumps December, having closed as 80c yester
day, was 80%c on first trades and 8l^@81%c
shortly. Here the market halted There was
sagging on profit taking, but the market re
mained strong in tone.
Primary receipts were 744,000 bu, against
1,224,000. Wheat and flour clearances, 311,-
000 bu.
The market closed strong and active, altho
a fraction down from high points. September
closed at 85c j December, [email protected]%c.
The cash business was on a steadv ascending
scale and the market was a very satisfactory
One to sellers. Every one wanted some wheat.
No. 1 northern followed the option on the rise
and the premium also increased a little, so that
sales of this grade were made from 85c to
86}1" for spot, and from 85c to 86*40 for lots
to arrive. No. 2 northern sold from 88V4c to
88c for spot and from 83MiC to 85c to arrive.

CLEARS ARE HIGHERQ00D DEMAND J S
REPORTED.
Prices are advanced [email protected] on clears. There
Is an especially good demand for these grades.
AM prices are firmer, but quotations on patents
were not materially changed to noon. Demand
for flour has been excellent for several days past
and a feature has been the demand from abroad.
Millers said this morning that this had been
checked. Foreign buyers were just about be
ginning to fit their views to the situation and
some bids were so close that business could
be done, but on a further advance here the
bids are again too low. Millers believe, how
ever, that foreign buyers will come In again
on the slightly higher range, as conditions
abroad as well as in our country appear
stronger.

GRAIN TRADE GOSSIP
Finley Barren wired: Small northwest re
ceipts and unfavorable weather abroad which
explain higher cables are causes of wheat ad
vance. Trade suddenly grown much broader.
Corn up mostly on strength of September. Stocks
are small and likely to be entirely reduced.
Broomhall reports the advance in Liverpool
dne to further general rains in the United King
dom, and says the crop situation is serious.
Southwest Weather: Kansas City, clear, 70
Omaha, clear, 65 Atchison, clear, 60 St. Louis,

slight declines on a small volume of business.
St. Paul opened oft % and rallied %. Pacific

The opening declines measured the extent
of the selling movement. Subsequent dealings

Minneapolis Market Record.
There is much misconception on the part of
many people as to the amount of wheat con
sumed In the manufacture of flour in the north
west. The quantity ground in Minneapolis Is
easy to calculate, as the figures showing the
barrels of flour turned out ere annually pub
lished, and it is a simple matter to reduce them
to bushels of grain used. It is quite adifferent
question with the Interior mills. Few persons
take the trouble to look up the number of such
mills or their output.
Census Figures.
Once In ten years a census of these Is taken
by the government. In 1890 the United States
census found 307 mills manufacturing wheat
flour in Minnesota and North and South Dakota,
with a production of 14,180,677 brls of flour.
Of this Minnesota manufactured all but 1,168,-
672 brls, or 82 per cent of all. The census of
1900 showed an increase of 10,469,099 brls, or
24,649,776 brls, as a total production, which Is a
gain of above 73 per cent in the ten years. The
census computation 1B based on the productions
of 1880 and 1899 respectively. Allowing for the
same rate of increase in Interior mills in the
three years sinceor 1900 to 1902, inclusive
as is shown by the Minneapolis and the Duluth
and Superior mills, the production of flour In
1902, including Superior and La Crosse, is ap
proximately 32,000,000 brls. The census figures
show that it took 4.5 bushels of wheat on the
average to make a barrel of flour, which makes
the wheat consumption of the northwest approx
imately 144,000,000 bu in 1902, 135,000,000 In
1901, and 126,000,000 bu In 1900, or 405,000,-
000 bu of wheat so groun into flour in the
last three years. Minneapolis shipments of
wheat were 34,176,750 bu i nthe same period,
and Dnluth shipped 110,538,569 bu. The seed
consumption has been approximately 18,000,000
bu annually, or 54,000,000 bu for the three
years, making a three years' distribution of
549,713,319 bu. The commercial figures of pro
duction, quite commonly accepted, atfi 115,000,-

000,000 in 1902, o ra total of 476,000,000 bn
for the three years, against a distribution of
549,718,319 bu. Some wheat came from out
side states and some wheat was shipped from
Minnesota and'the Dakotas south, into outside
states. After carefully investigating this sub
ject it is found that more grain goes out of Min
nesota and the Dakotas, to the south, without
reaching Minneapolis or Duluth, than comes Into
Minneapolis or Duluth from other states.
Northwest Acreage.
.The official wheat acreage In the northwest In
1890 was 3,143,917 acres in Minnesota, and
4,209,482 in the Dakotas, or a total for the three
states of 7,353,399 acres. The 1900 census gives
6,560,707 acres for Minnesota, 4,451,251 acres
for North Dakota and 3,984,659 acres for South
Dakota, or 14,996,617 acres for the three states,
making the ten years' increase in acreage 7,643,-
218 acres, which is above 100 per cent increase.
Claims are made in some quarters that the acre
age of wheat in the northwest has fallen in three
years from nearly 15,000,000 to some 12,600,000.
If that were true, and the rate of decrease re
mains the same for ten years,the northwest would
be back in 1910 to where it started in 1890.
The past ten years were full of similar reports of
declining wheat acreage and yet there was an
increase of 100 per cent.
