Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce. Sept. 23.
"Wheut was stubborn again thib morning and
aarU to force dowu. Yestei day's low points
were reached but the pilceb \.ei e steady after
the dip, aud the general tone much bettei.
Lightei receipts weie the piiuclpal influence,
and the bulls took coinage fiom the showing.
The Duluth figures were positively startling,
with only 52 cais In against SS7 last year. Last
jear's receipts covered a forty-eight-hour move
ment, but even so, the comparison was a stiong
one. Fifti-seven cars of jesterday's Miunr
auolls leeelpts turned out to be winter vhtsat.
ah is morning Minneapolis had 311 cais agalust
4J0. Chicago 103 against 310, Kansas Cltj 200
against US , and St. Louis 102,000 bu against
150.000 bu. It was such a showing on the whole
as to make the bears a little neivous at tirst.
but the effect of it was largely offset by a
demand outlook. The locul millets weie
ot in the cash market, as was Quite to be ex
pected HI view of the verj dubious outlook for
operating the mills. With a tie-up in sight and a
laboi situation showing no improvement over
night, the millers were not disposed to mi up,
and some of the big buyeis would not take a sin
gle car of wheat. The elevators took it, and
the cash market did not suffer very much consid
ering everything, but the impoitant point was
that bad the millers been buyers, much of the
wheat would have been lost to sight, whereas
the purchases to-day went principally to ele
vators and helped swell the local stocks which
eo far this week have already lncieased by
600,000 bu. Outsiders have been watching the
ai in Minneapolis stocks, and the leport that
here this week is likely to run close
to 1,000,000 bu has had bearish effect all around.
Chicago showed no important change in senti
ment. The early strength there was largely on
corn. Colder weather is predicted for to-night
and frosts are llkelj in northern Iowa. This
made the oorn shoits cover and gave a better
feeling, but even so, there was no bull enthusi
Wheat is likely to follow pretty closely on any
change in corn, hence wheat traders were In
tel ested to learn that there are, in Chicago,
some veiy influential bulls in corn. "History is
repeating itself is the corn market," said James
Patten last night. "I have been on the floor
of the Chicago Board of Trade twenty-five jeara
and have seen a number of frosts come in the
month of September which affected the corn. In
variably there were a lot of traders in the coun
try who would report that no damage had been
done to the corn and on the contrary it had done
the corn good. I never have seen the time when
a tempeiature of 32 and under would assist in
maturing a crop of corn In the past, when frost
has occuired, the market has gone down on re
ports of no damage similar to those that are
being circulated to-daj. We are getting
tronger reports to-day of damage to the corn
crop than we have had yet,, I am of the belief
that this corn is going to sell materially higher.
It is simply common sense to believe that a
freezing temperature will do damage."
Bradstreet's report showed an increase of
4,779,000 bu In the visible supply The quantity
east of the Rockies increased by 2,179,000 bu and
the quantity in Europe and afloat gained 2,600,-
Broomhall oabled "Larger and cheaper Rus
sinn offerings caused an easy opening, and the
market wag still lower later on a very favora
ble Rumanian crop report. The Rumanian of
ficial report estimates the wheat crop at 71,000,-
000 bu against 73,000,000 bu last jear. Oats.
83.000,000 bu against 26,000,000 bu last year.
Clear weather continues thruout the west,
northwest and southwest. The only rain shown
on the entire map is a trace in Manitoba. Con
ditions could not be improved upon for the wheat
movement and threshing. There Is a decided
drop ia temperatme, and fieeaing thru part of
the northwest lip to 7 a. m. there was no
freezing teranerature la the corn belt, but indi
cations are for colder Temperatures about sea
sonable thru the west and southwest, but looks
as If the corn belt might get frosts to-night.
Primary receipts. 1.235,000 bu against 1,659,000
and shipments, 006.000 bu against 386,000 bu.
Clearances wheat and flour, 332,000 bu.
The market had a sharp break after noon.
Statistics were ail against the price and on a
little wavering many made haste to sell, Decem
ber going to 75%c and May to 77%c.
The close was easy, December at 75%@76c
May, ulfafa 78c, and September, 82c.
In the cash market the elevators took the
wheat, thetmillers, being out of it. No. 1 north-
84ru 84ftp , and No . 2 northern at
51% Co 82c for the average. Oood wheat sold
fairly well, but the low grades suffered in price
and some were slow on sale.
THE SITUATION PECULIAR AN D THE OUT
The situation is lather mixed in flour. Millers
are Inclined to feel a little easier on prices in
view of the easier cash market, but against
this there was the consideration that the clos
ing down of the mills, should a strike result
from the present labor contioversy, would be
an offset Millstuffs have had considerable of
an advance of late and feed prices would prob
ably be affected very seriously by a prolonged
strike. Demand for flour was reported erratic
this morning, some buyers taking flour freely
and others holding off, some actuated by fear of
the bull effect of a possible lighter production
and others going on the basis that there will
bp no strike and that meanwhile wheat is on
the decline and flour prices should follow
Suipments. 42,222 barrels.

Chicago, Sept. 23.There was wheat for sale
at the opening to-day, and the market was a
little easier, with December at 78%@78%c to
78%@78%c. Lower temperatures in the north
west, piedicted light frosts and heavy buying by
commission bouses offset the influence of large
country offerings, prices bettering early. Decem
ber went to 78%c, and receded to 78%c. There
was a large trade in May wheat, which opened
at 80%@80%c to 80%c, and held at about the
lower figures. Minneapolis and Duluth reported
receipts of 363 cars, which, with local receipts of
103 carB, only 2 contract, made a total for the
three points of 466 cars, against 760 cars last
week, and 985 a year ago.
On weaker outside markets with free scattered
selling and light demand, the market later be
came very weak, December receding to 77%c, but
rallying on buying at the decline to 77%@77%c,
closing easy at a loss of l%c .

market. Influenced 1 cables and covering in the
near months, opened steady, 4 points higher to
3 points lower. After a few minutes of steadi

of the expanding movement and clear weather,
under liquidation and bear pressure, September
broke to 11.30c. October to .70c and ttfe latter
position showed net loss of from S to 12 joints.
This decline attracted profit-taking by shorts,
however, and also brought in buying orders from
commission houses, which were heavy enough to
rally the market 5 to 9 pints from the bottom.
At noon the market was quieter and several
points from the bottom on a flurry of profit,
