Tk< grain markets weakened today and' the stuck market rose again Venter ? da>'s damage reports were backed by a violent ri;;e In grain prices and the leaders of the stink speculation wore] intimidated. At this critical period of the crops sensational reports fori speculative purposes' are looked lor. and guarded against as lar as po<s-j Sible. j This effect was resisted fairly' well even yesterday. The measure of relief (ell over today's belt r news' was- unmistakably shown, however. J by the renewed activity and Btrongtb. of the stock market It is admit-j ted in many quarters of the present participation in stock operations that' a long lisik ahead is being taken an:l neater possibilities of ^unfavorableI developmetiis are being ignored on an assumption 'bat they must prove but temporary. | Spring wheat continued the subject of discussion as to the probable de? terioration. A sharp fall from the figures, of the July government report is count (l u|K)ti in tomorrow's re? port. The early market was not without considerable irregularity from the remnant of the influence of. yesterday's crop report. i The advance gathered force uu -J venly and was hampered by sone weak reatiirci. Canadian Pacific was hurt by the extensive strike ol its shopmen. The growth of general interest in the stock is followed I ? be still small und the bulk of the buying is attributed to the same m t ulative sources as for some time past. The driving in of uncoven d shorts, some of them long staining, is another important influence in thol persistent rise in prices. The cheer? ful reports of the iron and steel trail ?, Journals over the course of affairs in these trades was a helpful inlla ence In lost, ring the price advance.I The publication of the argument tu I be presented against the vali lily o! the commodities clause of the Hep? burn law on In-half of the anthracite carriers pointed to one cause of the strength in the coalers, notably Read-1 ing.
