Minneapolis Chamber of Commeice, April 7.
Easy cables, growing crop reports from the
winter wheat states and flue weathei g*nerallj
were against the price of wheat todaj. Chicago
held up after the market opened and was a
shade above yesteiday's close, and this Chicago
strength checked Selling here. Locally the tone
was weak, and so fine was the weather and
bearish the feeling it engendered that Minue
apolis, in all probability, would have had a
sharp break but for the outside strength. No
news of importance came along to account for
the action of the Chicago market except the
ale of 160,000 bu cash wheat to eastern millers,
followed by buying of futures led by Bartlett.
If one were to draw the inferences natural
to the present situation he would see an effort
to hold up the market 4n Chicago, and to sell
heat quietly meanwhile. Such inferences might
'.be wrong, but the action of the maiket would
warrant them Apparently the longs in Chi
cago May, finding no change to delay sending
in the northwest, ho let up in favorable wintei
wheat crop news and steady accumulation of
northwest stocks still continued, are trying to
i let go their May. Xaturallj they would not
iT
throw it on the market at once They are
4 sending out bull new from Chicago, meanwhile
1 peddling it out In small lots.
The increase in local elevator stocks was
850.752 bu for the weok, which raised the total
to 17.887,718 bu in the weekly report, and, with
^S,000 bu increase for one day since making it
tip, the actual total today is 17,912,000 bu. Foi
^ue day the receipts here were comparatively
Ijeavjl, 242 cars compared with 146 a year ago,
i and for other points the comparisons were 17
and 7 inJ)uluth, 5 and 15 in Chicago, 126 and
42 in Wlnnlpfg, 27,000 bn and 58,000 in Kan
sas City and 49,000 and 28,000 in 8t. Louis
Cash demand was good at l*4e over May for
No. 1 northern. Reports of continued good cash
demand in Minneapolis stirred up the Chicago
Bpais today, and one of them wired D.
Fraser asking "How is it that, with only a few
hundred cars in Minneapolis every day, and cash
fre
emand always reported as good, elevator stocks
increasing daily?" It was a posor. It is
like the question cf continued poor flour de
mand and shipments today of over 83,000 bar
rels These things are mysteries.
Bartlett, besides buying wheat freely, bought
Considerable co in Chicago and strengthened
'all the markets.
Marfleld was a seller of September wheat in
Chicago and a buyer of July at %c difference.
The figures covering the stocks of flour in the
Ilnited States on April 1 appeared There is a
total of 646,000 barrels against 576,000 last
month and 770,000 a year ago
Primary receipts were 387,000 bu against
287,000 a year ago, and clearances of wheat and
flour equaled 183,000 bu.
Winnipeg May closed l%@l%c over Minne
apolis, a most unusual difference.
The southwestern crop bulletin, issued at Kan
sas City, says "Rarely, if ever, was the grow
ing wheat more promising on April 1 than it is
this season. While somewhat late in more de
rated portions of trans-Missouri territory, it is
showing healthy color everywhere, and no com
plaint of any kind is heard at this time, which
Is very encouraging when it is considered that
the southwest grows over 40 per cent of the
winter wheat crop of the United States The
tact is that not one of our numerous correspond
ents, reports anything except that which is en
couiaging at this time."

'"""The fact that posted flour shipments were
larger today than for some time was attributed
"fey the millers to a cleanup of old orders and the
beginning of a heavier movement towards Duluth
lor the opening of navigation. One large local
mill will probably close down tonight and the
prospect is for a somewhat lighter output next

neapolis, Duluth and Chicago reported receipts of
284 cars against 899 cars last week and 168 cars
