The big and active Wheat market of last
week has continued on a more extensive
scale, and prices made rapid upward strides
toward the $1 mark, gaining 5 cents for
the week. The beats early .attempted to
make capital out of the closing down of the
flour mills of the northwest, and the larger
world's shipments, but this was of no avail,
as outside millers and buyers came Into the
jnarket with increased force, and have so
drawn on receipts that stocks will show a
Jarge decrease, even with 20 mills closed
down. It is announced that the big mills
pre soon to resume. Millers are active buy
ers, and commercial wheat is commanding
p. good premium over the May. Of the
world's shipments last week, we furnished
by far the largest part, and will supply a
larger percentage this week, as Argentine
(shipments are being delayed by unsettled
weather and as for Russia, she will have
iittle more to spare, for, with a war as good
as declared on her hands she must look to
her reserves. The situation, then, evolves
fn our home supplies, where we find primary
receipts constantly growing lighter and the
Wheat that 1B coming to market is drawn
from country elevators whose combined
slocks are under 6,000 000 bushels, the
smallest lecoid for January. In the south
west, where Wheat was reported only a
short time ago in piles on the ground, ship
pers are requesting that bids be discontinued,
|is theie is no more Wheat to ship. Our
visible supplj, and the world's visible as
well, dccieased heavily, the loss last week
amounting to 2,500,000 bushels, against an
increase of a like amount in 1903. The big
interest in this market continues to buy more
Wheat on all dips, and it is certain they
have considered the situation from all points
of view and are confident of the merits of
their position. There is scarcely enough
Wheat in sight to make a good showing for
filling May contracts, to say nothing about
distant futures, and, further than this, it is
daily becoming plain that every bushel of
Wheat we spare during the balance of the
crop year will be at the expense of reserves
and the price.

While all markets have made splendid
advances. Corn has been particularly strong,
and prices have advanced to the extent of
0V6c for the week. The upward movement,
which has been most steady, from 41c for
the May, on the clearer understanding of the
peculiar western situation, the poor grading
of the crop and the small movement to mar
ket, was further influenced by the heavy
buying early in the week for
the same account that has been
so prominently connected with the Wheat
market, and on the Argentine cables report
ing damage from drought. For years now
It has been an easy matter for us to dispose
of the largest of our cereal crops. Ih 1908
we did away with 2,500,000,000 bushels. In
1902 our crop was short, and price* were ad
vanced to 90c. Receipts so far of the last
crop, and the several state reports, clearly
indicate that the last crop was greatly over
estimated, and the attempt to establish and
hold values at a low level was just as
much in error, for not only have our de
mands Increased for Coin for feeding pur
poses, but the Inroads cereal compa
nies and the many other companies
manufacturing Corn products are making,
have not been taken into account, and it is
claimed that the low quality of the present
crop requires a larger amount to be used,
so that with these increases there must be
a corresponding increase in the price. The
enoimous movement to the south and east
continues, foreign orders have followed our
advances and our dally shipments and clear
ances are more than equal to receipts. The
piesent receipts are largely from elevators
and, with this supply exhausted, there will
be little corn to teach market centers until
well Into June. In the sj&eantlme, stocks
of contract corn are only 2,000,000 bu, and
the amount of the visible supply but 6,000,-
000 bu. The undertone to the market is one
of decided strength and, while we look
for occasional declines as the result of re
alizing of profits, we anticipate broad and ac
tive markets, affording excellent opportuni
ties for making investments that will yield

The week opened with a sharp recovery
from Saturday's decline, which was more
the result of a misunderstanding of Secre
tary Wilson's report than on any special
development ot weakness, continuing with
the higher grain markets, and on the report
that a crisis in the political affairs of Russia
and Japan was near at hand, until new high
prices had been established on Thursday.
Naturally this resulted in stronger fcrelgnr
markets for our products and a rush to
replace lines sold on the advance the vresk
before. Hie supply of hogs to reach the
market this week has been tinder the esti

cured meats run heavy, although interfered

hogs closer than at any time in their experi

will not permit any further reduction of
prices, which are right now below cost of pro
