Today’s Market Gossip |
(By Thomson & McKinnon)
—May 26
Stocks—lt Is reported that ran-Ameri
can Petroleum Company directors will
declare a stock dividend at their next
meeting and place the stock on a higher
dividend basis.
The National Bank of Commerce of
New York calls attention to the differ
ence between a financial crisis and a
panic, saying “a crisis means the end
of a boom period, Inauguration of slow
business ana depression, accompanied by
settling of debts and readjustment of
prices.”
A specialist In Ftndebaker shares as
serts the bulk of the late buying in this
Issue has been for short accounts.
A growing tendency toward thrift is
, reported in the Chicago federal reserve
| district.
Grain- in recognition of the ciisis in
transportation the rule penalising de
faults in grain delivered has been re
scinded for ten days.
A late message from New York yes
terday stated that 80,000 bushels of corn
had been sold for export, but a Chicago
house says the business was only for
Cuba, and the amount 5,000 bushels. It
Is reported that 750,000 bushels of oats
have been sold for export within the last
few days.
The weekly weather crop report is
mainly favorable.
A Chicago exporter says there is no
foreign demand for wheat, or rye.
A leading Chicago cash man says: “We
have talked on the phono this morning
with thirty of the best com stations In
Illinois. Their reports are unanlmona to
the effect that farmers are quite eager to
sell corn at prevailing prices, and that
shelters will commence working Imme
diately. which will be reflected bv in
creased receipts next week. Our advices
also indicate material improvement in the
car supply. The commercial demand for
corn is limited, and with a large move
ment ahead of us it seems Inevitable that
corn muat sell down to Its feeding value.
Weather and crop conditions are all that
could bfe desired.”
Minneapolis wires; "Very good cash
demand for all grains today. Eastern
millers in market for spriug wheat, which
is 5 to 10c up. Durum is Be to 7e higher,
and winter unchanged to 10c higher. Corn
is lc to 2c up; barley 1c to 2c higher;
oats lc up, and rye unchanged.
Cotton—The failure of a Philadelphia
house was blamed for a nervous cotton
market at Liverpool this morning. Com
mission houses were operating on both
sides of the market at New York.
A number of New England textile mills
have agreed to curtail production be
cause of cancellation of orders and poor
transportation facilities.
