LOWER PRICES RESULTING.
THE SITUATION ALL DAY.
Wheat Reacted From Early De
dine and Showed Small Losses,
but Corn Declined Sharply.
"Wednesday. Sept. .. A
There, was nothing in too conditions or
the actions of the arious markets to-day to
arouse enthusiasm anions traders or to
create ary groat stir In the local pram iit.
Weakness was plainly apparent, the Thol
tpeculativo situation heins honey-comlc(l
-.vith It from the opening to the close. In
fact It was the kejnoto to speculation dur
ing tho day. and sellers were largely In tho
majority. This state of affairs was natural
ly reflected In values, which underwent (in
other qutto serious set-back riKht at tho
start, crcatly discouraging those who have
beer, friendly to the Ions side. The differ
ent markets, and In particular corn, .ap
peared to posess little If any recuperative
powers, the occasional reactions belnE of
the narrowest, while the reverses were fiulto
revere. Wheat declined largely at first, but
later did better, there being a recovery from
the low point, and closed the chief specu
lative option only c off for the day. while
the coarser grain was from -c to .c lower
and weak nt that. Speculative operations
wero not large at any time during the day
and tho aggregate volume of business trans
acted was light and chlelly in tho higher
There was enough in the earlier news con
cerning wheat to plainly show that nnother
bear day was to be cperlenced, and this
was mora than demonstrated right at the
outset, when a declire set in that received
no check of importance until near the close,
when prices recovered somewhat, and made
a. much better ending th.m had been antici
pated by the most f.mgulne among the trad
ers. 1'retty nearly ail the advices, both for
eign and domestic, were bearish. First
thero was the regular Government weekly
report on crop conditions, in which thero
was nothing that could bo well construed
as fato.-ablo to the bull side of tho account.
Thrashing was said to be progressing en
couragingly and the rain-injured staexs in.
South Dakota had Improved material..,
though those in South Dakota Iwd been ser
Ioul dam.tged. Tho report also on fall
Tilonmg and seeding was encouragingly sat
isfactory. The llrst cables from Liverpool
rrpcrled that market quiet at jd decline
tdnce jisterday's close and London firm for
white, but dull for red cargoes, and lino
weather in England. The most influential
factor, however, was tho postings of ar
rivals at the primary 'Western markets,
which continue very large with every evi
dence that they will increase steadily from
noyv on at least that seemed to be the opin
ion among well-informed traders. lle

As the above was an incentive to sell thero
was no hestitation en the part of local
traders and they started right In a? soon as
the market opened up for business. Dec.
sold at Tie to i-iyT4H.c and declined still more
until 73c was reached. Oct,, after opening
Kg lower at 72e, went down -without inter
ruption to "lc On this decline there was
a large amount of long stuff came out, and
this naturally Increased the desire to sell
and depressed prices. Lata cables were no
better than those received earlier. Liver
pool closed Hd off for tho day, Antwerp was
unchanged, lierlln -c lower and Uuda-Pesth
'.c l'arls was said to be unchanged to c
higher, with line weather prevailing in
France, which, to say the least, was not en
couraging to investors; neither were the
clearances of I76.00tf.bu. of Hour and wheat.
Bradstreet's reported an increase of I,T,0"J
bu. In the world's vtflble. against an In
crease a year ago of ZESLOv) bu. The avail
able east of the Rockies was increased 717,
4j0 bu. more than the official visible of last
week. As the close of the day drew near
there was a change for the better, brought
about by talk of export buying, together
with reported sales of hard winter for tho
Continent, by St. Louis, Chicago and Kan
sas City. On tho strength of this there was
some cry good bujlng. and. selling letting
up. there was a reactionary movement to
prices and Dec. went up to "IHc. which was
He lower for tho day and at which It closed
buyers. Sept, at the close waa the sume as
-tsterday-that is to say, 71tc and "lUc bid.
The weakness that has characterized the
local corn situation for several days was
raoro than ever evident to-dey. and especial
ly so this morning. The break In wheat had
much to do with this", and, with Ad lower
cables," good receipts and the favorable Gov
ernment report, caused selling right at the
outset, so that Dec. after opening r,;C lower
at 33c, declined to ZTJaC, Sept. sold lc lower
at ffic, and Oct, brought Sbc and later had
Sellers at 35uc.
According to tho Government report, corn
is ripening and cutting becoming more gen
eral, except in Northern sections In the
principal States most early com is beyond
possible damage from frCst. but late sown
hows no Improvement in Central Kansas,
and is a falluro in certain parts of Missouri
and Arkansas. The arrivals at primary
points wero posted at GM.W9 bu., against 1.
031.000 bu. a year ago. Including 31.3M bu.
here, against btX) bu. last year. Shipments
were 4H.0uO bu., and tho export clearances
630.000 bu, from the seaboard. Bradstreet's
reported a decrease of 2.166,000 bu. in the
available supplies, where the regular visible
decreased 2.U7.000 bu. On the late rally in
wheat and reports of some export business,
which waa Fald to be HO loads or L12O.O0O
bu. at New York and Chicago, the local
market picked up a little, a lot of 20.000 bu.
taken hero at a big premium over Sept.
helping. Dec. sold up to 23'ic, and closel

According to the postings on 'change to

pathy with other grains this market was
easy during the early hours, and was rot
materially Improved later. Dec sold at 22c
nnd closed He off for the dav nt that. For

May -aras that much lower at 2ic
In its T(rtly report on weather ar.d crop

Corn Loses a Bit, Oats Are Firm

Chicago. 111., Sept. 5. Wheat was in brisk
letninil for exiort at a decline which was
brousht about by the continuation of heavy
receipts'. The rally on the shipping bui-ii-s
was f.tint-hcirted, and the price at the
close wius lc lower than jesterilaj's. Some
of the lat fl bulla not only mM out their
lor.s wheat, but sold a3 much more abort,
which should bo sutllclent hint for a rally
unless the ti-nul signs fall at this time.
Corn lost .-p of lis value for Sept., and
Uc for Oct. O.its closed ilrm nftt r bcins

fepecijltles. 1'laxseed shorts wero again put

Wheat developed treat wealtness, which
looked like the suntndcr of another batch
of wearied bulls. The scarcity theory looked
ragged and Kood for nothing but to wrap

to the InnRs appeared to be gathering lu tho
Northwest, whence came the report
that from now and to continue for some
titno receipts of wheat at Minneapolis and
Duluth would show a considerable Increase,
the bail condition of much of the wheat be
ing thrashed noces.-ilating its immediate

The receipts of winter wheat were liberal
alo. and now appear to have settled down
to a sfady movement that may lJst ln
dtlinlte!. Chicago recolvtd 01 carloads,
compared with 203 cats tho corresponding
day of last 5 ear. and although a very large
proportion of to-daj's uumbir of cars had
undoubtedly been lounled In the receipt-

to the Individual who encounters It in many
dlnctions, as he shifts about endeavoring
to reach some point outside the windings
of its sinuous length.
Tho decline that occurred during the first

Local receipts of corn were T&2 cars. and.
although that was quite moderate, as com
pared with ill the llko day of the previous
ear, it seemrd heavy, in view of the fact
that 31i) was the estimate made yesterday of
to-d.tj's receipts. The latter feature of tho
comparative receipts was the one that more
powerfully appealed to the local crowd,
who took it for the forerunner of a freer
movement from farmers. The Increase is
coming from tho liittrlor of this State, the
acceptances cf bids sent west of the river
being still Insignificant.
Tho longs startitl to renew the selling be
gun by them the day before, and not until
a trrsh decline had enticed Eastern buers
to take hold did the market give sjmptoms
of reviving. A heavy Kastern demand re
sulted in large sales for shipment, cause-d
some reaction, and helped holders who had
not previously parted with their lines.

was tW.liOo bu.. against 1 077,0O bu. the sim

afttrnoon was accepted. A heavy trade for
export was reported from New York, tho
quantity named being 110 boatloads, and of
that about l.oU0C0 bu. wero bousht here.
The market made only a slight response to
such n heavy shipping business, closing

over the previous day's closing figures. The

Flaxseed early was very strong and about
SUftlO'tc higher for futures and Sli'tflOViC
higher for spot seed, but on approaching
tho close eased off a little and lost some of
Its big gain, owing to tho heavy telling
later. At the close the market managed to
retain an advance of 3V4S6V4C above former
prices. Tho rise Is values was helpei main
ly by manipulators and shorts becoming
alarmed. Spot Northw?stri sold at Jl.St
