"THE BARGAIN HUNTERS" $90.00 Given away next week. Watch for th BARGAIN ADS - DfTHE WEDNESDAY REPUBLIC. WHEAT VALUES DECLINE ON LIBERAL OFFERINGS. FAVORABLE CROP REPORTS WEAKEN PRICES. July Delivery Is Down o-Sc; Corn Is Up 1-Sc to l-4c; Oats Gain 1-Sc; Provisions Unchanged. t Chicago, May 12. Reports of favorable progress by both domestic and foreign crops were potent factors In weakening wheat values to-day. At the do-"e the Jul- deliver' was down He. Corn Is up !itjlc. Oats show a Rain of '.ic. Pro visions closed practically at last night's final figures. WHEAT. A firm undertone, due to heavy rains and lower temperature northwest, pre vailed In wheat at the opening. Initial sales on July were unchanged to a shade higher, at S33c to KtgKc. A report that tire at Port Williams had destroyed a large elevator full of wheat brought out enough buying orders from pit traders to advance the price to iVitiS5"sC. Re ceipts were extremely small, and this fact also exerted a bullish Influence. Hut trading In geneial was light. The market lucked any outside support, and with a continuance or offerings the price graduallv weakened. A number of bearish reports were received during the day. Increasing the weakness. Advices from Russia stated that the surplus of wheat for expoit was still large, nnd that the weather was favorable for the grow ing crop. The Minnesota State Bulletin gave an optimlstlo report of seeding oper ations during the week. The condition of wheat fields In the Southwest was reported to have shown considerable Improvement. An Influential selling motive was lack of outside de mand, the supposition being that If there is not foreign demand between now and harve:-t time stocks of wheat In Chicago will show a big increase. The market closed weak, with July at S)?;iS4;sc, after the price had declined S4c to ElVrSic Clearances of wheat and nur were equal to 6U.50J bu. Primary receipts were 134JO) bu.. compared with 313.0 bu. a year ago. Minneapolis. Duluth and Chi cago reports receipts of TO cars, against 110 cars last week and Hi a year ago. CORN. Corn was moderately strong on light re ceipts and on covering by shorts. Offer ings were small throughout the entire session, notwithstanding the weakness In wheat. July opened unchanged to a shade higher, at 4SJc to 4Si"i.c. sold up to 40J43ic and closed at 4S?,fr43c. 1ical receipts were 71 cars, with 2 of contract grade. OATS. In sympathy with corn the oats mar ket ruled firm the entire day. Small re ceipts, good cash demand nnd lack of any material selling pressure were the main contributions to the firm tone. The bet buying was by shorts. After opening un changed to He higher at 3S"c to 2c: July sold between JSic and 33,.VW39'c. closing at 3Sc Local receipts were 62 cars. RANGE OF FUTURES. Opening.

NATIVE CATTLE Beef Steers with but a light supply of cattle th trade In the steer de partment opened rather good and most of the tidier weights of steers sold actltely and at stronger values. There was very llttl. varia tion on such classes and all arrltlng In fair season sold well. The heavier steers. 1.309 lbs. and upward, were not in roucfe favor and were very lightly wanted by packers. A sale or so cf this doss that were carried over from the previous day brought a shad. more, but the price obtained was no more than they should have brought Wednesday. Other holders of the heavier steers found a very uncertain outlet for their offerings, and some were In the pens the largest portion of the day before sold. Prices In no instances on them were any better. One let of good IJOO-ib. and another lead of rood handy steers sold at 34.90. with one lot ot heavy uneven kind ot steers rolng at. 34.85 that were very fat. Some pretty gooa lots sold at 34.7094.73. with most of the cattle going at 4.Xr4.SS for fair and medium grades. BEEF AND BUTCHER STEERS. No. Ar. Pr. No. Av. Pr. No. Av.

Good butcher and packlrg hogs weighing 2"0 lbs. or more sold readily, and In most cases showed an ad vance cf 6c over th general Wednesday trade.

Trading was rath er slow, eten on the best grades, while those that were only fair or on the common order were extremely slow aale. Buers were mors particular than for some tlm ss to quality. Cull spring Iambs ar not much wanted at any price. 1I0RSE3 The present week baa been one of very light receipts, owing to th unprepared ness ot tountry shippers, after the. big sup ply which they contributed to the market last week. Only a few of the regular consignors were abl to get In. and their offering, com blned did net amount to m.ro than one-fourth of an ordinary supply. The market was. consequently, handicapped and activity was restricted materially, because there, were plenty of buters on the market who wanted consignments, but were only able to ret about one-half or one-fourth as many as they needed. This was particularly the case with Eastern buyers, who bad liberal orders for chunks and heavy draft horses. IVIces opened strong and continued so throughout the week, much competition being sho.n among buyers for all th desirable ot' fericgs that were available. Good horses In even class sold full as well as last week, and in a few eases, under the stress of urgent de mand, a little stronger. At all events. It wss a. blghlv satisfactory week In every particular, excpt receipt.

In Ih cae cf very choice, big mules, for whclh come In qulry was leported. Nevertheless it was a fact that orders through the several branche of trade as well as buyers were very scare, and none of th dealers reported much business. Not more than two or three loads went East. As this Is the mainstay of the trade at this season. It can be judged now tight the activity was. The market on plain, medium and ordinary mules, and eten on some that might be clsssed as rood, was very slow and although th of ferings were limited sellers found difficulty in negotiating them. Mules hate been so nigh In the country for some time, notwithstanding the redactions which have taken place at market on plain and mdfum kinds, that It has been almost an Impossibility to make a profit out of them at market, or eten come out without a io.
