NEW TORK, June 21.?It was casy to see. thflt the extremcly nervous and varlable stnto of dotjieatlc wheat mar "fcet. carlv ln tlie week was due to the fact tliat traders were greatly con .tised bv the nunierous confllcting fac tors, Prices fluctuatcd ln an exceed Ingly spasmodlc fashlon. ralllcs nnd breaka followlng each other in rapld euneselon. By tbe mlddle of the week, i j. however, the bulls hnd galned a little. 7 8eptember was the princlpal gnltler. | " llence the premlum on July was re? duced. ' the dlfference between the two months narrowlng to 1 5-S cents ln Chieago. against 3 3-8 cents last week, and to 14 3-4 cents in Mlnne npolis. agalnst 16: wheroas here the gnp narrowed only 1-2 cent In tbe week, going from 3 cents to 2 1-2 cents, The erratlc course of the mar? ket "rts trnceab.e In good part to the fact that, whlle cllmatlc condltlons were generally fayorable all over the Wrst, further" ralns in Ihe Scuthwest gave rlse to feurs of Important crop damage. I'IoixIn Cause A|i|?rehcnslon. It Is not ditTicult to understand the Widespread floodlng of bottom lands ln the Southw^st, when it is known that ralnfall thero ln the last ten weeks has l_?en more than twke as heavy as ij. ordlriary seasons, It is fortunatc that mauy farmers have l'earned from prcvlous cxperiencc thnt lt ls better to plant corn on low lan.fs, near -__vers nnd streams, as corn Is benefitcd by a great deal of molsture, whereas vgheat is llkely to . uffer damage. As a conseo.ucnce of thls acllon on the part ctt farmers, it ls llkely that less wheat had been dnmaged by tlie floods in Kansas and Oklahoma thnn had been suppose,. at first. although sonie shrewd obseryers estlmate thnt the crop In those States has been cut down fully 10,000,000 bushels. Positlon o_f I'nrel-;n Market*. Early ln the week demand was ac celcrated ln part by the strength of Kuropean markets. Thls was particu- j i( larly the case ln Budapest, where Oc- 1 tbber contract.) galned 2 l-\. cents, | - maklng the total advance in |_hat mar? ket In less than a month 20 3-S cents. This was. however, offset ln pnrt by a weakcr feellng in Berlin, where re rnrts of a better crop outlook ln Ger many brought.*bout a decllne of 6 1-4 cents ln fhe same time. As far as tTie prospects for our own crop are con cerncd, there are many experlenced traders who believc that tbe brlght outlook has been overworkd by the bears ln their efforts to depress values, and that the larger size ot the o*rop is now fully discounted. "Why Prices Brnkc. Late ln tlie week thoro was no radl r-il change in tlie .general trend of , affalrs ln the wheat market, although.H the final outcome showed a sllght loss In values. There was contlnued j Irregularity and unsettlement, there belng occaslonal rallies. foUowed by slinrp breaks. The market seemed to "he dominatcd malhly hy bearlsh sen tii.ient. which was encournged by tlie ?dyent of moi;e. normal weather con" '?(litlons almost all over the couiUry. Thero was art appreciable decrease in .'. ihe rainfall ln the Southwest, and ad VI.c.es from many polnts indlcated that floods were subsidlng. Therefore it ls belleved that farm - ers will speedily be able to begin harvestlng in low-lying fields that have heretofore been too wet to work In. On hlgh ground harvestlng is maklng excellent progress, and as a ruk- the outturn is satlsfactory. torn Crop Bnck.rnrd. Matters have been almost atastand still in the corn market, and the fluc tuatlons have been slow and unim 'portant, although at tlmes a flrmer undertone has obtained in sympathy wltli hlgher advices from the West, where large houses are givlng the market good support. prompted by the great scarcrty of-'contract grades" and the backward appcarance of the crop. Notwlthstandlng the so-called liigij prices, the movement fro mtho interlor has not increased as anticipated, but possibly the llght movement is part ly eaused by the recent floods. There are dealers who think that July and September corn can easlly sell H.s hlgh as May dld. Trade in cash corn has been at a standstill most of the time owlng to the inslgnificnnt supply and the strong vlews of holders. Ne.v Vork CoHou Mnrkrt.
