CANADIAN CHOPS. j „ Are Unfavorable and Will Not Cut TneyM,c . Any Figure in Exports DYNAMITE on the track. Cartridge Discovered od the Line to Be Traversed by the Spanish Royal Tritjn_Tlie Propeller Grand Traverse Sunk. Toronto, Opt 20.—The last and most authentic information of the crops of Conada shows that the statistical posi tion of Canada this year is far less fa rm able than for a number of seasons. As a matter of fact Canada will not cut any figure at oil among wheat ex porting countries in 1896-97. Last year Manitoba raised 33,000,0000 bushels. This year there are only 15,000,000, or barel v enough for home requirements and seeding next season. In the other provinces the crops are also short and in the place of exporting 10,000,000 or 15,000,000 bushels, as was done last year, these provinces will need for their own use all the wheat they raised this year. Cash wheat is now selling in Ontario at 78 to 89 cents, and No. 1 hard Manitoba wheat afloat at Fort William, Lake Superior, at 77 cents, which is considerably above an export basis.
