There -was no relief for the longs In yesterday's grain market. Eoth wheat and corn
were again on the downturn, with no effort to check the declines in evidence. In wheat
the roost depressing Influence was news from the Northwest that favorable weather con
ditions for harvesting and shipment prevailed In that section and that the receipts at
Minneapolis and Duluth were being very slowly absorbed. Millers and export buyers In
these Important centers were playing a waiting game in anticipation of loner prices. Re
ceipts at St. Louis were again comparatively heavy and there was practically no outside
speculative demand for options. The cash Inquiry was not sufficient to form the basis of
hull movement. Foreign markets were generally dull and lower for American breadstuffa.
Bright weather was a dead weight on the corn market. All other domestic centers
reflected the bearish feeling cf speculators and investors and rriccs were even weaker
than those of wheat.
Sept. wheat opened ?Jc off and closed 9c off.
Sept. corn opened c off and closed IVic oft.
Sept. oats closed l-16c off.
Receipts of produce were heavier than for several days, but the buying demand for
fruits and vegetables was good and declines were' slight.'
In local securities Mechanics' National Bank was again the feature. Other Issues
were a trifle easier on light trading.
Yesterday's bank clearings were $5,935,737, balances JSIS.IaS. Discount rates were
steady Between 5 and 6 per cent.
Spot cotton was quiet and unchanged in
Northwestern Advices Show Fa
vorable Conditions for Ship
ping Spring Wheat.
None of the excitement of the last few
days was In the local grain market yes
terday. All hands were apparently of the
opinion that the bearish viewpoint was tne
proper one, considering the weather out
look and the character of the statlsti:al
In the preceding twenty-four hours little
rain had fallen and advices from the North
west were distinctly bearish. Cash prl;cs
for spring wheat In that section were es
pecially weak. Offerings were again free
ruid outside buying orders were scarce.
Trading was mainly In the hands of local
professionals and scalpers. Receipts at St.
Ixmls were on the Increase and foreign
markets were weak.
The Cincinnati Price Current in Its week
ly summary says: Spring wheat thrashing
progressing moro favorably than last week,
though there were Interferences by show
ers early in the week and In some sections
delays by rains havo mado harvesting and
thrashing a little late. Winter wheat move
ment normal and while receipts continue
i to grade low there seems to be a tendency
to slightly improve. The rains in the South
west Interfered somewhat with stack
Sept. wheat opened c oft and sold at:

There was not a gleam of encouragement
for the corn bulls. All other domestic Mar
kets wero sharply on the downturn and
longs here, as elsewhere, were willing to
let go on a declining scale. Aside from fair
weather In nearly the entire belt there was
little news calculated to affect the market.

Xcvr Torlc Curb Market.
New York. Aug! 23. The curb market was de
void of special feature to-day. The volume of
business was smaller than on any previous day
for a week past, and although the general tone
of tho market was steady, price changes were,
for tho roost part, confined to the small frac

aDout micaay mere were sales 10 realize proms
which resulted ln a reaction to 110. buuse
quently, however, there was a rally to 111 and tho
price ended the day with a straight gain oer
vesterday. About 2.VQ shares were dealt ln.
There was a marked falling off In the transac
tions in the Rock Island Issues and especially in
the new fours but prices showed very little
change from tho final bid quotation of Wednes
day. About 500 shares of the common sold at ft
down to 424. and a few hundred shares of the
preferred changed hands at 7S. The bonds sold
at S9SSS for about 540.000. A few hundred
shares of Greene Consolidated Copper changed
hands at 26T27. The bond department was un
usually quiet, but firm. Sales were as follows:

Js "Weak and Lower.
Chicaso, Aujr. 2S. Brlsht wtathcr ECner
ally was the bearish factor in grains to-day.
All cereals suffered recessions at the start,
on general and free liquidation by longs and
for some time bears h.ul free rein. Later
there was something of natural reaction,
especially in oats. The close. howeer, was
weak in the main, Sept. wheat "s'i'lc down.
Sept. corn lj.sc lower and Sept. oats ':C
higher. Sept. provisions closed loc to C2',o
Wheat ruled weak and was active only In
ipots. With lower cables and weather the
best that could be desired there was a good
amount of long telling eatly and prices took
a quick tumble. There was con-tant talk
of a 1)1 movement of spring w.neat soon
and god propecis for a little better grad
ing. Active thrashing of the new v.hcat
was repotted under way. Following weeks
of .idvtr.-e weather, the unFMnr turned all
the crowd to the bearish view, and stop-losj
selling orders came out. Alter the break,
however, there was good bujmg at times'.
Sfpt. felt tho most strain, because of poor
( euprort. Late cash business wa.s fair and
poit. In scner.il. the nsreet of the wheat
market lnuicatcd tli.it the big lonps, wanted i
to get out of the market reiore it found si
loner level, and the support was largely by
those who covered for a profit. Sept. start

Corn felt the effects of fine weather, low

Receipts were still light, at 29 cars. 1 of
contract grade, but promises were for a
much better showing. The crowd turned
uniformly bearish at the opening, and on
the Initial slump Sept. was at one time 2c
depressed. Almost every one in the pit had
stuff for sale. In general, the speculators
in this pit thought manipulation in Sept.
was at an end, but a latent fear that such
might prove the case held this option some
what nervous and subject to quick fluctua
tions on any definite news. Kansas City
sent out conflicting reports to the effect
that plenty of corn would be offered there
within fifteen days, but that new corn
would not grade there until Oct. 13. There
was no doubt, however, that there was
sellins: pressure on the Southwestern mar
kets because of news of new offerirgs. Sept.
sold from 57c to 55t2c In the first few min
utes of trade, but rallied to np.-c on fairly

HORSES The native supply of horses during
Ihc week was only moderate, but with the Iarg
ctierlngs of range hordes which arrived, tne
total supply was iery heavy. The market was
not as good rs last week. The chief reason
was that the supply was confined principally to
tho medium anu plain grades, which were not
ln especially actiie demand. The best kind
were wanted and held to a uniformly strong and
tho medium anu plain grade:
MU3.tH.iur- loiie, nut tney were comparamety
few. Eaftem bmers sought the best chunks
and drivers assliuously, but were only able
to obtain about oae-third enough to fill their
wants. There was some Southern demand. But
It was not sufflclnt of Itself to uphold a steady
basis on the plain and medium classes. The
market was weaker, but there was- no radical
brtak and 13 closing In ery good condition, so
far an the disposal of offerings Is concerned.
The ranse horses sold very satisfactorily.

MULES Ultimately the market has not proen
as good as last week. It startettout in good, active
shape, but the continuance nf a liht exterior de
mand and liberal offering- h.ue finally had their
eiteci. me weeK s receipts thus far are about ai
large as a week ago. The dealer, have reccled
a lair number, but the bulk of consignments
have been directed to the commission market.
One class of mules had held to a steady and
firm tone throughout, and thee were the choice
big ones, which, howeier. were so few as to fur
nish hardly any basU for quotation. The other
elapses dragged somewhat, dealers showing 1-si
eagerness for them, ami In most case asking
for concessions to effect tran-actlcns. In short,
the local necessity for medium mules Is not as
keen as during the two weeks Just past, and
with the exterior demand showing Itself in rather
small limitation, the outlet did not justify fne
malntainance of so strong a dealing demand.
Sellers hae been unwilling to accept easier
prices for the arrivals, and as a reult quite a
few unsold ones were on the Thursday market.
Tho tendency Is weaker, at least, for the time
