A War Rumor Floats In and a Strike |
Buenos Aires Is a Possi- ,
ble Factor.
:
St. Louis Fears a Corner, and There
Is Gossip of a Local House
s
Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce. Dec.
24.Bioomball. the Liverpool authority,
handed out a little Christmas piesent this
morning to the bulls in wheat, in the form
of a war squib, on the strength of which
Minneapolis May spurted to 83*ic in the
first hour of trading. Chicago May mean
while selling to 84i4c It was an excited
market for a brief time, with the shorts
taking in the wheat they had sold yester
day, and traders who had sold calls male-,
lng haste to buy against them for pro
tection. What Broomball said in his cable
was that there was a% rumor going around
in Liverpool to the effect that the Jan
anese fleet had cleaied for action. Just
what was meant by this was not very
clear. but it was a war message and that
was enough The trade was in the mood
for something of firmness, anyway, for the
war gossip foi several days past has been
more ominous. Theie weie besides thiee
other items of a strengthening nature. St.
TJOUIS fears a ciueezf in December wheat,
and that there is still a large outstanding
sho rt interest theie is evident. Argentina
shipped less wheat last week, the pre
liminary estimate placing the quantity at
onlv IM.OOO bu. and there is a big strike
on In Buenos Aires which mav delay ship
ments for the present, even tho Argentine
will have plenty of wheat t o ship after
the new prop is in The^e was also some
talk of ci local house hort a big li ne of
Minneapolis Mav wheat somewhat under
the piesent price, and this gossip even
went so far as to take into consideration
the probable effect, should a n attempt
be made to cover on the present strong
maiket. A s t o the weather there was
nothing helpful to price s, Oklahoma having
ain, and som'
ing nt S2 i July at 2
and De ember
at 80c.
In tl'o cash market there was a fair trade
but no keoa demand for the pooi lots Grade
wheat sold well but pool lots went ve^-j low and
some was i nsold late in the session.
FAIR GENERAL DEMAND CONTINUES
PRICES HOLD FIRM,
Ihe tniuket it without Important change,
hut the tendency is firmer. Millers would have
advanced juices to day in line with higher cash
\ heat but. foi the fact that there hare been
loeent advances in millstiiffs. The tone, how
.ei. i sstrong and should anv further rise
oc-iur in wheat, flour prices will likely follow
l omptlr.

eral increase of wealth thruout the north
west, with a volume of business for the
year fully equal to that of 1902. On the
Pacific coast, notably at San 'Francisco,
wholesale trade has been the best for
years past at like periods.
I n the Dominion of Canada general trade,
both wholesale and retail, is quite gratify
ing. Stocks are broken and merchants
are ordering freely in seasonable lines.
Holiday traffic ha been larger than last
year. Exports have been heavy and trade
in all lines for the yoar constitutes a rec

Itoqpi tiaders devoted more energy (to Snrlher

result was a listless and uninteiestlng market.

New Yoik to Charles B. Lewis 'there is a
band here on the floor of the Stock Exchange,
playing "Hiawatha," and business will probably
l e pretty dull th- balance ^f the daj.
Finley Barrell says. There continues a fair
export demand for wheat. In Kansas City,
where receipts are heaviest, the cash market is
strong Stocks are not increasing. The weath
er is \yet over the wheat belt and there is no
snow. Severe cold weather would cause appre
hension. Expect to see wheat hold within nar
row tange over the holidays, unless something
untoreseen happens. Weather bad for movement
and grading of corn.
