Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce, Dec. 13.
Wheat held pretty well this morning, selling
off a little, but showing no great weakness.
Receipts here were 44S cars against 491, and
I at Duluth 138 against 52, and there was noth
lug In this to put prices down. The increase
in Minneapolis elevator stocks of 700,000 bu for
fire days was a bear card, but stocks are so
light and have yet so far to climb before the
total can begin to look like anything, that this
had little effect. Nothing in the outside mar
kets made much difference in sentiment, which
eppears to be conservatively bullish. Liver
pool closed %d lower. Broomhall cabled: "The
Liverpool maiket was quiet with a decidedly
narrow range in prices. The tendency was
toward a lower level, prompted by the easier
American cables yesterday and a lack of specu
lative interebt. Corn was quiet in tone, with
prices lower. Selling preessure resulted from
the larger American offerings and the apathy
in the spot market."
There has been some comment of late as to
Improving Uour trade and the probable effect
upon wheat values. Of this the Northwestern
.Miller sajs: "The Minneapolis flour output
lost week increased 10.393 brls. The quantity
turned out was 290,855 brls against 882,035 in
1900 and 279,370 in 1904. There has been some
changing around among the mills and the out
put the current week promises to approximate
275^000 brls. For the corresponding week in
1905 It was 318,990 brls. On the whole Minne
apolis mills reported business dull last week.
Howe*er, there were instances where pretty
liberal sales were made. This included soma
orders for patent booked in the United King
dom, a dip In wheat on Wednesday and Thurs
day permitting millers to accept bids that had
been put out by importers. Baltic markets
took some clear flour, but Holland was hard to
lntest. Bran, after declining 7Bc a ton, has
recovered pretty much of the lost ground, and
Is again held at close to the former high prices,
Howeyer, it is not over active. Middlings and
red dog went down with bran, but have not
shown the recuperative power that bran did."
Chicago received 41 cars against 12, Winnipeg
110 against 119.
Argentina shipments for this week will be
bout 800^000 bu, compared with 176,000 last
week and 1,386,000 a year ago.
Primary receipts 887,000 bu against 708,000.
Clearances wheat ami floor 639,000 bu.
Marfleld's office Issued an estimate today- of
the oats minply. It reads as follows: "ffroni
kifownatlon that la absolutely reliable (the
same having come from our own people or
those closely connected with us), we eaU at
tention to the following facts regarding the oats
crop movement and present stock, as compared
With last year. In our opinion these figures are
sensational and warrant persistent purchases and
holdings of cash and May oats. Receipts and
stocks given below as to 'country elevator re
ceipts,' and 'on hand in country elevators' were
given by 409 country elevators thru Iowa, Min
nesota and South Dakota on the 8 Paul North
Westarn, Illinois Central and Minneapolis & Stu.

ing factors in the local market Yesterday an
announcement of an early consolidation of the
Te^nmseh, La Salle and Caldwell properties by
Calumet & Hecla interests effected a substantial
advance in TecumBeh. Michigan and Franklin
responded in sympathy, their firmness, together
with strength in Tecum&eh and Greene being
the feature of the market. The buying of
Greene amounted to 34,434 shares, was said to
be for New York account. Afternoon prices

1,000,000 bu went to Canadian crushers.
THE ffHEAT CONSUMPTION

STATES' MILLS^ CROP YEAR OP
1905-6, 138,435,970-BUSHELS.
The requirements of northwestern mills in
wheat for the year Is a point next In importance
to that of how large a crop was raised, says
the Northwestern Miller. With the flour output
of Minneapolis and Duluth definitely known, the
only uncertainty has been as to quantity of
wheat consumed by the Interior mills of Minne
sota and the two Dakotas. The "outside mills
have developed wonderfully in the last six
years.
For the crop year ended Sept. 1, 1903, the
Northwestern Miller made a similar estimate and
found the wheat consumption of the interior
mills to have been 66,833,600 bu. On that occa
sion the consumotion of about one-third of the
mms, including some large ones, had to be
estimated. This year, reports were obtained
from all the large mills, while the number of
small mills not reporting was reduced to a very
low point. As prepared, the Northwestern Miller
has the utmost confidence in the report for 1905-6
and in this position, It has the support of the
Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce.
The statement was compiled from confidential
reports received from 349 mills. This left 134
to be estimated, all of which were of minor im
portance. The statement as worked out follows

Shipments of flaxseed from Duluth from Sept.
1 to the clqse of navigation total 11,882,000 bu,
compared with 12,087,000 bu for the same time
in 1905, according to the Duluth Commercial
Record. The shipments for export this fall were
1,881,000 bu, of which 872,000 bu went'to Ca
nadian crushers the balance going to
eastern crushers. During the fall of 1905 Cana
dian crushers took 417,000 bu and Europe 1,515
000 bu, a total of 1,932,000 bu. While the total
shipments this fail were practically the same
as those a year ago, all of the eastern crushers
are short on what they would have taken had
the November price been reasonable. With the
single exception of the American Linseed com
pany, all tne eastern crushers have taken out
less seed than they did In 1905, and the ex
cess of the American company over 1905 is only
about 600,000 bu. *With the expected increase
consumption everywhere yearEuropIs It very
probable thaOtr eastern crushers will all be anx
