Interesting Analysis of Govern
ment Final Figures for the
1905 Crop.
Dullness in the Market and Prices
Still in Very Narrow
Range.
Increase of a Million HereThe
Flour Mills Gradually Clos
ing Down.
MInneipolis Chamber of Commerce, Dec. 21.
The bulls were surprised and greatly dlsuppoint
ed this morning to see wheat open weak and
May sell down to 85Vbc early. It was thought
that the snow over the northwest might stimu
late trade a little and break the market out of
its extreme dullness. The contrary was the case.
The snowfall was not heu\y enousth to sug
gest much interference with the move
ment of grain to market. Local eleva
tor stocks increased 1,W0,00 bu for five dajt^
Receipts bete weie slightly above a year ago, 507
tars against 402 The mills were reported clos
ing for a probable ten-day period rather than
the over-Christmas four-day layoff talked of
jesterday, and cash demand was slow, No. 1
northern making relative to May and selling
at Uc under. The foreign markets were dull,
Liverpool was weak at the close. Paris off
Antwerp %c and Budapest %c lower and Ber
lin aloi.e 'sc higher. The various reports cov
ering the new crops in our country were favor
able, the Price Current finding no chunge in win
ter wheat and the high piomise fully maintained.
'Jhe government repoit came out late yesterday
with final figures for 1903, and thev were big
Wheat is put at tt$)2 000,000 bu and corn at
2.707,000.000 bu. the latter being especially bear
ish The maiket was dull and heavy In all the
pits
Duluth got 128 cars against 50, Chicago 29
against 14 Winnipeg had 209 against 159 St.
Louis receipts weie :8,00 bu against 27,000,
and Kansas City 38,000 against 43,000.
John Inglis and V. Jones make this state
ment toTheJourn al today on the United
States wheat crop "W have been awaiting
final government figure* on wheat production be
fore submitting conclusions as to the wheat
ci op. Int August we estimated the wheat crop of
the United States at 624 000 000 bu against 683,-
000,000 bv the government in October. During
the fall we have made investigation of results
and find that on the basis of leading mill and
^levator opinion in the several states that our
figures were too high at 624,000,000. The gov
ernment's final figures, issued yesterday, ln
reas the October estimate to 694,000,000, while
state results indicate not above 615,000.000, and
more conservative opinion suggests 600,000,000.
In our judgment, the government makes two im
portant errors They report the yield by meas
ure, then bv applying their weight figures, their
yield of 694 000,000 should be reduced on winter
12,000,000 and on spring 16,000.000 bu, bringing
the total down to 664,000. We estimate an over
estimate of winter acreage bv the government
of 1,50.000, and of spring 1.000,000. ThiB calls
for further reduction of winter wheat of 21.000,-
000 bu and of spring 12,000,000 a total of 38,-
000,000 or only 7 000,000 more than our August
figures. The government estimate is too high
BU the states of California, Texas Oklahoma. Ne
vada, South Dakota, Iowa and the Ohio valley.
On the basis of 615 000 000 bu and not to ex
ceed 50.000,000 brought over Julv 1. the country
has 665 000,000 bu of wheat market and 50,'-
000,000 will be carrier over July 1 next, leaving
available for use 615,000,000. The United States
wants 500.000,000 and has exported 40,000,000,
leaving 75,000,000 for export to Julv 1.

CHICAGO GRAIN
WHEAT MARKET WEAKCORN BULLISH
OATS STEADIER.
Chicago, Dec. 21.The wheat market today
was wetk, pit traders and commission houses
being free sellers. One of the most important
factors in the situation was the government re
port confirming previous estimates of an enor
mous crop of fall-sown wheat. Minneapolis ele
vators also reported, large increase in their
stocks, and this was discouraging to the bulls.
Mfl opened %fti%c to %&%c lower at 87%c
to 88c, and declined to 87 %c. Minneapolis. Du
luth and Chicago reported receipts of 664 cars
against 556 cars last week and 586 cars a year
ago.
The low point for May was reached at 87
87%c. A fumer tone developed late In the day
en reports from English statisticians, who esti
mate that there has been a liberal decrease in
the shipments from Argentine. The close was
easy, with May off Uc at 87%@87%c.

Rains over the entire corn belt revived bullish

more possible bj the wet weather, which will

CROPIA
7,500,00 0 BUSHELS YET TO
COME FORWARD TO MINNE
APOLIS AND DULUTH.
The Duluth Commerial Record figures that
country elevators contain from 5,000,000 to
7,1)00.000 bu of seed practically ul lof which
is sold to Duluth for May delivery or sold to
Minneapolis crushers to arrive daring the next
four months.
Assuming that the larger figure is too high
and that the lesser one, o,000,uoo bu, is conect,
it appears that farmers have disposed of 20,000,-
000 bu of this ear' crop.
The Commeicial's estimate of the crop was
27,500,000, son^e have gone higher, the mapority
are higher, while others go as low as 25,000,000.
The 27,500,000 figure is high enough and shows
that fully 71 per cent of the crop is out of farm
ers' bands and probably 75 per cent would be
r-earer correct. In this connection attention is
once mere called to the fact that terminal re
ceipts are no index in arriving at farmers' mar
ketings, and this year less than ever. With the
flax now in country elevators, Duluth and Min
neapolis could receive 200 cars a day for the
next month and not a bushel of it for sale, ail
having been sold before arrival.
The residue of the crop to be marketed, 7,500,-
000, will probably not crowd on the market.
