Corn and Oats, Although Some
Better, Were Generally Dull,
With Slight Changes.
Aside from wheat, there were no signs of
awakening In speculation, and another quiet
day was experienced in the sraln rit on
the local exchange. Speculative interest
was at a low ebb "arl not much better
late, and confined almost exclusively to pro
fessional room traders. The trade was
nj-riln without cables, and traders, not
knowing just exactly how the situation was
viewed abroad or how the markets there
would oren up Wednesday, were not In
clined to take risks, and so operated cau
tiously. There was no news of Brent im
portance, and little outside of the weather,
crop conditions and the usual statistical In
formation. Such as came to hand, how
ever, faored the bulls In most cases, and
the result was seen In a betterment in
prices all around, though the different mar
kets did start oft rather badly. The high
priced grain Improved the most, and at the
close was from Jc to Slic higher for the
day, while corn and oats were only slightly
better, the former being reported "Jc off to
l-16c to 1e better, and tho latter closed the
tame as corn.
There was little life to be witnessed In the
grain pit on 'change in wheat yesterday,
put the market improved later In this re
'spect. and found Itself In a much stronger
position at the close than it has been for
some time past, the TOe mark being reached
and passed. The trade was again handi
capped by the lack of foreign cables, and
especially from the United Kinpdom. all
Knslish markets still being closed. Other
information jrhtch Included statistics, and
'weather and crop conditions was the lead
ing influence, and in most Instances
checked tho desire to sell, even if It did
not increase speculation. One of the most
influential early in rtic day was the condi
tions prevailing in the Northwestern terri
tory, from which reports of drought con
tinued to come In. The weather was dry.
also. In the West, but the general belief
-.was that winter wheat was all Tight, though
damage reports were received from sec
tions. Receipts were large at this point,
and a private cable received from London,
and which was the only one received dur
ing the day. said that the moro distant fu
tures had declined US2"! The send-off
here was rather bad. July opening 1-lbc
lower at OHc. and that option showed little
or no change until outside markets came
co very strong that a demand was created
and buying improved to such an extent that
the above named future went to ssc and
Sept. which had been previously offered
at 6SSc. sold at 6Sic. and was later bid

was from the Southwest, and some
from east of the river, and especially
Illinois, the crop bulletin of which reported
decided deterioration. Dry weather In the
Northwest was also brouzht Into play, and
the result was that buying was renewed
and the July option went to 63;iS7Dc. and
Sept. was bid 6S;i'?Klc. Another help to
the market was the daj's clearances of
Hour and wheat, which amounted to 790.000
hu. Late cables reported London "-1 off

decrease a year ago. and the available enst
of the Rockies fell oft L3i000 bu. more
than the official visible of last week. There
was nothing encouraging In the cash situa
tion, but, some export sales "were made here
and about all the Ko. 2 red on hand was
said to have been taken. The buying con
tinued right up to the close, but In a. quiet
-way. and July sold right up to the top,
TOVic, and closed there. Sept. at the close
was bid 69HS63Jie, and May at 7214c asked.
$ Corn locally attracted but little atten
tion, especially, during the earlier hours, as
wheat was the attraction from a specula
tive point of .view. Later, there was some
thing of on- Improvement, but it was a
small -one only,' and at no time during' the
day was there much life shown in this
'grain. The day's arrivals" at primary mar
kets, and especially at Chicago, were very
large, and which were sont in to fill May
contracts, but country advice-i were to the
effect that the movement was falling oft
and Tecelpts -would be smaller In a short
-while. Shipments were good, and the daVs'
clearances amounted to SS4.000 bu. London
reported the market without change. Trad
ing was of a light order early, and but lit
tle change In price was noticeable. July
sold lc off at 42c. and 4242Hc was bid

when the. regular visible fell off E93.O00 bu.

the balance of the session, though July d!d
sell at 42Hc but at once reacted to 42Uc
and closed at 42Ufij",c. For Sept. 42Uc was
bW, May was quoted at 42Hc, and June was
offered at 41c
.An all-round firm market was had in oats
at this point, but trading was only fair.

good feeders' up to si.so. to common little knot
hearts, dolvn to $2.50. Country buyers were fairly
well represented, and local dealers made a
-.trong front, all of which combined to Incite n
quick. aggreslvo trade. The best cases found
the mon urgent Inquiry at strong prices, while
a few- of the very plainest kinds were slow in
moving, but by 2 o'clock the clearance was good.

of quarantine cattle on offer tonlay. nnd every
one of them came from the Lone Star State. Re
ceipts aggregated 95 carloads, and, combined
with the big run of 141 cars Monday, made a
two-day supply that has not been equaled In
years Rt this period of the season. For tho first
time this spring, grosser comprised a majority
of the holding". A train of 985-lb. fed steers
from Temple. Tex., topped the trade at 34. s5
and grass steers sold as high as S4.25. Negotia
ting wus slow early In the day. but soon as"umed
n better aspect, and from that time un'll ev
ery thing changed hand", the scales were kept
busy. Values ruled steady, with some of the
rrost desirable- feel offerings selling stronger and
the crmmnnc"! light weights a little lower.

MnLES The mule receipts continue of such
small volume that there Is Utile or no lntere"t
dlsplaed In connection with the commission de
partment. The few arrivals are In small lot",
and the salesmen find no trouble In negotiating
them quickly, leaving the pens the greater part
of the time In a state of perfect clearance. While
exterior trade this week has not opened on as
large volume as ordlnnrilj. there Is stilt an en
couraging Inquiry emanating from Eastern dis
tricts for the best grades of big mules, and any
thing on the blocky order, from 14 2 hands up.
Five or six carloads were sent to Pennsvlvan'a
coal mining sections last Saturday, but the Ina
bility of dealers to obtain enough to fill lmmdl
a.te current orders was responsible for the I'ght
movement nn Monday. Values for the kind rulo

noon did th -trade act on the belief that a
marked advance was tn order. Several slim re
actions occurred on room trading of a profit
