Bradstreet's World's Visible
Shows an Increase of
3,000,000 Bu.
Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce, NOT. 27.
11 taat could be said of wheat In the first
two hours of trading was that it was slightly
easier In tone. It offered no advantage to the
bull and none to the bear. The yolume of busi
ness wis not heavy. Chicago was dull and Min
neapolis would not take the lead. The situation
here seemed to be easing up a little with refer
ence to the supply. This was not shown in the
figures, for the local stocks decreased for three
dajs by 16,000 bo, aad receipt* were still unuor
last year. Minneapolis had only 297 cars against
452. or a difference of 155 cars. Duluth ran
over a little witl\ 521 against 407. This left
the net difference 131 cars. Chicago received
43 cars against 99, Winnipeg 609 against 713,
-while Kansas City got 87.1WO bu against 79,000
and St. Louis 40,000 bu against 78,000.
Bradstreet's report of the world's visible
bowed an increase of 3,000,000 bu. Only 1,250.-
000 bu had been expected, but as the increase
last year was 5,092,000 bu, even the gain of
8,000,000 bu was really bullish.
Liverpool closed unchanged to %d lower.
Broomhall cabled. "Wheat quiet, unchanged
at the opening, influenced by steadier American
cable*. Later the disposition to liquidate in De
cember and the easier La Plata offerings caused
a decline. The undertone at midday was steady
as a result of a fair miller demand for con
tract grades, and a small recovery was made.
Trading was dull with the market narrow. Corn
steady, with values slightly higher. There was
a firm undertone, due to the strength in Amer
lica yesterday, higher spot markets and the in
creasing demand for both American and La
Plata parcels."
The weather forecast: Illinois and Indiana,
$j generally fair tonight and Wednesday, slightly
colder tonight, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri,
Iowa, JJorth and South Dakota, fair tonight and
Wednesday, Michigan, probably light showers
or snow flurries tonight and Wednesday Wis
consin, probably snow flurries tonight or Wed
nesday, slightly colder southeast tonight, Minne
sota, probably light snow flurries tonight, Wed
nesday generally fair, Montana, fair tonight and
Wednesday, wanner tonight.
^Xbe- a&ariwt Rooird says "WbUe all ^raixi
markets are largely affected by the world's
cfops, each is within a considerable range sub
ject to local conditions. The 1804 crop in the
northwest, according to the department of agri
culture, was 158,000,000 bu. The crop of 1806
la. according to the preliminary estimate, some
175,000,000 bu. From the 1906 crop should be
deducted the durum wheat45,000,000 buleav
ing 180,000,000 to 140,000,000 bu of regular
spring wheat for milling this season against
153,000,000 bu 1904, when, on account of the
short tarop, the price averaged well above $1
a bu al i the crop year.
"The wheat crop of the northwest in 1908
was estimated by the agricultural department at
173,000,000 bu, with no durum to reckon on, and
from Oct. 31 th emarket advanced in November
from 78c to 82c in December to 84c, in Janu
ary to 90c an din February to $1.H then
tanged from 90c to SI the remainder of the
crop season. Then came the short crop of 1904
and the price rose at one time to about 31.25
in Minneapolis. This 1006 wheat crop indicates
10,000,000 to 20,000,000 bu less than the crop
of 1904, leaving out the durum, and some 20,-
000,000 to 40,000,000 bu less than the harvest
of 1903. That is, with an apparent crop of
30,000,000 to 40,000,000 bu smaller for milling
than in 1903, prices are 6g)10 lower than the
average for that crop season, and with less
milling wheat than in 1904 the price appears to
be about 20c below the average for that sea-
son."

New York to C, B. Lewis: Yesterday's mar
ket was heavy on the Union Peadfic weakness
that was caused by scattered liquidation of small

for both these accounts was due to disappoint
ment at earnings which were said to he consider
ably less than had been generally expected. Now
that the report is out, the earnings may be fig

appear as favorable as predicted, but believe
that careful study of the report will satisfy the
most optimistic and cause much higher prices
for Union Pacific stock.

ARIZONA COPPERS,
penn-Arlzona was the weak stock on this list
today, declining point. Superior ft Pitts

The fact that so many think Cananea a sale
at these prices and that there is so mum stock
being placed on the market by scattered nolders,
and the fact that all this si readily taken and
more wanted at higher prices, leads to the be
lief that the buying is a great deal better than
