Thorc Was But Little Life Shown
by Any of the Grain Markets,
and Transactions Small.
"ffico Republic
Friday. Ami;. 3, IS).
There is little that is interesting to be
said about the speculative Rrain situation
locally to-day." it being; an almost feature
less one and without redeeming features in
Himp respects. Weakness characterized iho
coarser srains throughout tho entire day.
but wheat showed a moderate undertone of
strenptth and succeeded in making somo
slight pain. Thsrc was little or no life
manifested in any of tho markets during
tho day. one of the dullest and most un
intfrestinc; speculative situations being ex
perienced, and especially during the earlier
hours, when the different markets were
practically dead one?. There was a very
good attendance in the pit, but traders did
not seem inclined to operate- with anything
like freedom, and trade languished most of
the time. There were no price changes of
significance to-day. the fluctuations being
very narrow, unusually eo In fact, and
throughout the day they did r.ot move one
way or the other more than a fraction, and
a good part of the time not at all.
The local wheat market to-day had lis
periods of weakness and of strength,
though neither was of much significance,
and made but little impression upon val
ues. The advices favored selling mostly,
and there was more of that Indulged in ear
ly in the day than buying. Among tho
bullish influences may be mentioned 4he
Argentine shipments, which were reported
at 1,051, Old bu.. and which had a strengthen
ing effect upon English markets and also
on this side. Reports of yellow fever in the
South had some effect, they giving riso to
fears that Gulf ports might be closed and
exporting prevented, but by far tho most in
fluential wero the receipts, which were
again heavy, the arrivals hero nlono
amounting to 22S.900 bu., which was 44.4M
bu. larger than those on the same day last
week, and 140,100 bu. in excess of last year,
while the total at the four Winter wheat
markets was G01,000 bu.. against 451.00 bu.
on last Friday and 292,000 bu. a year ago.
The semidemorallzed condition prevailing
on last night's call, which caused Sept. to
sell at 72c, or HSsC lower than tho regu
lar close, was expected to show this morn
ing, but. to the surprise of many, they
found conditions of such a bullish nature
as to causa them to try to get their 72c
wheat back again, which was due to tiie
fact that Liverpool and London wero v.d
higher. However, there were too many
sellers, and not much of un advance was
gotten out of the market at this tinir-,
though tho bulls did better later. The open
ing for Sept. was 1-lCc lower, at 72'tc. and
it sold up to 72r8c, and back to 72kc the first
few minutes of tho session. Dec. had 7i1.tc
bid, and afterwards sold at 75HgUc to 75c.
The selling continued for some time after
this, and was sufficiently heavy to depress
Sept. to 72c, and caused Dec to be of
fered at 747sc
A very friendly feeling developed later in
the session, and buying on all soft spots
became pretty general, tho selling, how
over, gradually dropping ,off. the beats
showing a hesitancy about putting out any
more short lines. Cables reporting Berlin
r'c higher and Paris up Wua afforded
eonsiderablo .ucouragement to the bulls, as
also did some good clearances from Xew
York. As tho finish drew near it was seen
that ail outside, markets were becoming
stronger and moving toward a higher level
of prices. The cash markets heard from
were not overly good, though Chicago re
ported 150,0(0 bu. taken, but choice wheat
here continued to command stiff prices over
Sept. That option had been ranging from
72Vc to 72iic with light trading, but late
moved up o 72:Hi3'c bid, and closed at 1-lCc
advance for the day, at 72c. Dec clased
He better, at 75t4c Oct. at 73c sellers and
Aug. unchanged at 71c nominal.
The weather conditions early were tho
chief influence in corn and were of such a
character as to start the market off quite
strongly. This strength, however, did not
last for any length of time, shortly giving
place to weakness that becamo marked lato
In tho day and caused values to sink be
low those of yesterday. Tho cables gavo
no encouragement, as Liverpool was -sd
lower and London reported cargoes on pas
sage easier. Receipts at Western markets
continue small, the total arrivals being re
ported at 3$0.(w0 bu., as against S22,0, bu. a
year ago, and of which S3.500 bu. arrived in
St. Louis, as against S9.100 bu. a year ago.
Country acceptances were said to be small.
The shipments amounted to SO3.000 bu. Tho
hot weather and some talk of damage from
this cause, together with the strong turn
to wheat right at tho start, gave this mar
ket an upward Impulse, Sept. selling at
S6i;4c, Dec at 32&S?ac and year at S3ViC
all being t&o better than they closed yester
day. Indications cf rains and milder
weather, yellow fever talk, together with
lower provisions and the fact that the cash
demand had fallen off materially, had a
bad effect, bringing about Belling on which
Sept. went off to J6o and Dec. to 82c While
toning up soms In sympathy with wheat
from the early let-down, this grain did not
show very much strength during the bal
ance of the session, though Sept. closed
only ?so lower at S6Hc bid. Dec sold
at 31fcc and closed Sic off for the day at
31o bid. Year closed c lower at 3V&a and
Aug. nominally o down at 37c
Tho movement of oat3 to 'Western mar
HetB, which has been growing for eome
time of lato, is now large, tho arrivals to
day being reported at 512,000 bu.. or 137I0O
lm. smaller than a year ago. St. Louis to
day received 111.700 bu., as against only 6,200
bu. a year ago. The shipments were 2S6,,A')
bu. There was little trading in futures and
few changes. Sept. was offered at 20;c. and
later sold at 21c. which was He off for the
day. and at which It closed asked. Aug.
closed fee off at 2014c nominal.
Trado Gossip.
Snow's weekly crop report deals entirely with
the spring wheat promise In the Northwest,
s-pecial returns have been secured from country
bankers, managers of local elevators, railroad
Matlon agents and farmers, each return making
an estimate for th township in which th ob
server in located and with which ho is person
ally familiar. UsUmatcs are Included from 137
country banks, IIS local elevators, fcO railroad
agents and 140 wheat jrrowers, and the territory
included covers 92 pr cent of tho wheat acrcaca
of Minnesota. 97 per oait of South Dakota and
S4 per cent of North Dakota. Ths averages ro
lortcd from th various cources are 03 follows:
J'cr cent acreapo abandoned Stlnnesota. 7; South
lakota, a: North Dakota, 40; yield per acre of
remalalnc Minnesota, 10; South Dakota, C.3;
North Dakota, 6.3. On the basis of Snow's orig
inal estimate of acreage theso tlfrures would in
dicate a total crop of 47.431.000 bu. In Minnesota,
19.SOS.000 in South Dakota and 1S.80O.WJ In North
Dakota, a total of SO.23S.000 bu. On tho basis of
the Government estimate of acreaao the total
would be 77.323,000 bu. It Is slrmlllcant that tiio
reports from local elevator managers make quite
poor a showing Aa those from other sources.

By the way, how about those estimates of
Beerbohm and other English trade publications
made late last year that Argentine would not
nave 66,000,000 bu. wheat to spare for export?
Smith Brlckey, who went down to Ids lower
river farm yesterday, says wheat in the shock
was so saturated by late rains that the wheat
is stuck tosether as tliouch glued, and It has
to be pulled apart a day berore It Is thrashed
in order to dry it out. The quality of the wheat
U badly Impaired, the best not going above No
2. and most of It No. 4, where it would have
gone No. 2 if rains had not hurt It, Ho looks
lor tills week to about clean up tho shocked
This week's world's shipments of wheat
Fhould be about 6.000.000 bu. unless Eastern
Europe increases its exports very materially oer
those of last week.
Liverpool Is not receiving so much wheat
now as a short time ago. This week's receipts
were 6So,O00 bu.. ot which 470.000 bu. American
and the total last week was M8.000 bu., and one
year ago S4C.000 bu. Corn receipts this wee.c wero
340,000 bu., against, 241.000 bu. last week, and 444,
000 bu. last year for same week.
The Llverjccl mariet will now be closed until
next Tuesday.
The J. I'. Te.isdale Commission Company
have receiva a letter irom a grain dealer of tne
City of Mexi in which lie says a great dull at
the corn croo cf Mexico is damaged and the
balance In danger und ne asks for terms in
American com. as SIcico will have to buy m
this countrv.
The Argentine wheat visible has been reduced
1.C.O00 bu., and the ijtal of 2,400.0V bu. is 5.
SOo.dOO bu. smaller than a year ago. The com
visible Is LllCOfiO bu. against l,ol2.000 bu. a
week ago and 6,624,000 bu. a year ago.
An Increase in the wheat visible is now- cer
tain, and may be 1,000,000 bu. or more.
Wheat receipts at primary points, 977,000 bu.
against 804,000 bu. one week ago, GSS.OuO bu. one
year ago. and 441.000 bu. two jears ago.
The Modern Sillier Outlook: The clear, fine
weather during tho week has enabled farmers
in a large portion of the winter wheat belt to
thrash the wheat, which previously had liccn
held In the ihock. It has developed that somo
damage lias resulted to the grain, as a much
larger percentage of the wheat received at tho
martlets Is grading No. S uiid Xo. 4. but tho
luantlty has suffered no marked reduction. Most
of thu Wheat held In tho shock has been
thrashed Hnd marketed, and it Is evident that
farmers Intend to hold much of the wheat In
the stack for better prices, flowing for fall
ceding has begun In somo sections.

Chicago, HI., Aug. 3. Wheat rallied from
Initial weaknesa by the large quantity re
ported taken for export and closed ic high
er than it did yesterday. Dulutli reported
2U0.0UO bu. sold to-day for shipment. From
i0.000 bu. to ICtf.liuO bu. wero reported dono
here, and New York advanced sales for ex
port of about 7G0.000 bu., while Minneapolis
disposed of S2.000 barrels of Hour, and Chi
cago of S0ajO barrels for foreign shipment.
Corn was weak, o.iIh lirm on tho close, and
provisions under the ban of a yellow fever
The day's exports of wheat and Hour from
American ports were equal to -IS3.0W bu. I'.i
ceipts at Wstern primary markets wero
iO.OiX) bu., against C71.0W bu. a year ago.
I'aris noted a quarter cent rise in wheat
futures, Antwerp c a bu. fall. Reports of
shipping business in wheat being made
from day to day have been received by the
trado heie with much skepticism, but It
was definitely slated to-day that one Phil
adelphia export house had so far this week
purchased from Chicago houses 410.0iiO bu. of
Kansas wheat for export, and inquiries at
Dtiluth continued reports from there of C00,
(V0 bu. of spring wheat having been sold
there yesterday for shipment.
Dulutli reported a good shipping demand
still existing. A Chicago house had 4 boat
loads No. l Northern accepted that they
orfered by cable yesterday afternoon. New
York reported 30 boatloads sold for export
to-day, and the total sales here were about
St),WA) hu. The market became lirm ori the
cash business, Sept. advancing to 7,'V. ami
closing at 7,wi'a7fflic or lie higher than it
did yesterday.
The Liverpool wheat market closed at 1:30
p. m, to remain closed till Tuesday morning,
and at the time of adjournment, which was
prior to tho opening here, futures of wheat
wero from d to ijd higher than they closed
Thursday. Spot wneat was quoted k per
cent higher for American No. 2 red. and Id
lower for La Platte. Chicago received 214
cars of wheat, and Minneapolis and Dulutli
received 241, compared with 303 the corre
sponding day of the year before. Minne
apolis reported over 50 cars of to-dav's re
ceipts us hard winter from Kansas, and of
the spring wheat received 11 cars of it new
irom Southern Minneapolis, and its grade
was No. 1 Northern.
Corn had a momentary' spasm of firmness
at the opening, but Immediately thereafter
commenced to givo Indications of extremo
weakness, that continued till from 37&e,
paid for Sept. corn at thu opening, it had
declined to 2Cic. The favorable prospect
for tho next crop and diminished shipping
demand were having their legitimate elfect,
as they left the market with only one leg
to stand on, nnd as that was the smallne.-s
of receipts from the previous crop, it would
naturally become weaker tho nearer the
approach to the next harvest.
Iteceipts were 272 cais, against 20) ex
pected, with to-morrow's receipts estimated
at 275 cars. The total received at Western
primary markets was 4W.000 bu., compared
with 5!s7,0O0 bu. the previous week. Argen
tine shipments for tho week wero l.L'iS.O'W
bu., against 73G,0t;Q bu. the similar time last
vpnp. ClMranrp.4 from Atlantic norts wen
637,000 bu. Liverpool was 4d lower for spot
corn, and from Vd down to '.d up for
futures. Business was active for an hour
and a half, during which prices were tum
bling, and after that trado came almost to
a standstill.
Tho market was heavy during the fore
noon, but woke up near tho end to the ap
parent discovery that 21c for Sept. oats
was a low enough price to mako buying ap
pear safer than selling. There was a mod
erate shipping business, and 100,000 bu. were
sold. Tho day's clearances Irom Atlantic
ports amounted to 51,000 bu.
Local receipts of 453 cars, in place of 2S0
estimated, and expectation of 420 cars to
morrow, were the weakening features of
tho early trado. Sept. oats opened at 21Hc,
and after touching 2l',ic, dropped gradually
to 21c, then rose near the end to 21UC,
which was tho linal price.
Traders experienced another day of dull
ness. Though offerings were light, the mar
ket closed at a loss of- ltc since the pre
ceding day. The feeling of depression was
caused principally by lack of speculative
Auir. closed nominally at 46Hc. Sept.
opened at 4Sc and stopped at 17 &C. Oct.
rested nominally at 4Sc. Iteceipts were 1G
cars and shipments nothing. Kxports out
of New York also amounted to nothing. No.
2 f. o. b. sold at 49c, 49!c and GOe. No. 2 to
go to store sold at 48c. No. 3 f. o. b. sold at

310 bu. Malting grades ranged from 40c to
42c, feed lots from 35c to 37c and screen
ings from 32c to 34c.
The market was again weak and declined
from &C to 314c Tho declining tendency
was thought to bo caused by the inclination
of country dealers to sell, also to the fact
that there was little desire '.on the part of
traders to take tho country offerings. There
was only a Btnall amount of cash llax sold,
and that was disposed of at $1.42, right near
tho closing time.

Thero was no disposition on the part of
traders to deal in clover seed to-day. There
were no offerings or sales. The market re
mained nominal at $8 for contract and $0 for
Oct. Receipts were 001 bu. and shipments
30,750 bu.
Tho report that the Governor of Ala
bama had quarantined his State against
tho yellow fever, said to have broken out
at Tampa, Fla., caused provisions to open
weak, and more or less of the baleful in
fluence of such announcement was felt 11
day in the provision market.

CATTLE Native Cattle Trade With i
urgent demand and a small supply, beef steer
offerings changed hands Immediately on what
was considered a little better footing than Thurs
day. Butcher cows and heifers ruled steady nnd
there was no apparent change In stock cnttlo
values. A fairly liberal and representative bef
supply has been placed before the buyers this
week, and. Induced by an even greater consump
tion, prlc-s advanced Wc to 15c. In this par
ticular class It has been one of the most satis
factory weeks experienced this year. Desirable
butcher holdings found a strong Inquiry at all
times, but the medium and canner grades showed
a slower and easier disposition. Good stock steers
and feeders held active and tlrm, while the com
moner kinds weakened to the extent ot 10c to
15c. Veal calves went oft 23c per ISO lbs., bulls
remained steady, and, although good milkers
sold readily on a tlrm plane, the plainer ones
were slow, dull and about $2 per head lower.
Sales to-day Included beef steers, 1,203 to 1,333
lbs. average nt $3.50 to $5. CO. with the lighter
weights at the top price: butcher cows and heif
ers at $2 to $4.50, stock steers and feeders at
$3 to $4.25, stock cows and heifers at $2.40 to
$3.C5. veal calves up to $6.73 per 100 lbs., bulls
at $3 and milkers at $29 to $44 per cow and calf.

HOUSES An extremely quiet market was oc
casioned Friday for the reasons that a thorough
clearance was madi Thursday and no fn-h ar
rival were reported. The market subsisted dur
ing the current week on a much lighter supply
tiian last, and It was also a characterisMc of the
trade that the demand through all channels was
correspondingly smaller. A sllgh'ly tasler tone
was the consequence, but no general changes
mR1"' Vt representation of the choicer
qualities or chunks and drivers obviated a com
parison with the previous week, but the drift r
Sffi. 1. wa3 ,hat ,h,-y were altogether steady,
ihe cheaper Southern kinds had not so many
ym" them, and In instances where .the
q i ,! V v'aa Ver' common a weaker tend"ncy was
exhibited. All things considered It was not a
much varied market from the previous week,
but was on a more limited basis.

New York. Aug. 3. To-day the pressure of
cotton was general, except for occasional and
brief Intervals of reaction, with a very few
houses buvlng on the reaction theory, following
a belief that the market had been oversold.
Opening steady at a decline of 2f7 points, under
ndverfe cables, tho market soon became unset
tled and selling was active by all classes of
traders. Irlces broke 6310 points more. Crop
accounts were generally brilliant, reports from
the South Indicated an increased desire to sell
spot cotton, while spinners showed a procrasti
nating policy and dry goods people reported an
unastlsfactory call for cotton goods, licking is
In general progress, and reports indicate a gen
erous harvest and a good quality of lint. Ljcal
traders have been taking this to mean an carlv
rr.ovemcnt of the new crop, with only a small
volume of speculation to help bear the burden
of receipts. On this account the feeling In local
professional circles remains bearish. During the
afternoon tho market was particularly nervous
with a wide range of variations. Prices broke
to the lowest of the day under stop order sales
The market was finally quiet, a net loss of Sfj
