ALL EYES DIRECTED TOWARDS CROPS Those Who Have Fingers on Business Pulse Particu larly Interested. WILL CHANGE CONDITIONS. PRESIDENT OF ILLINOIS CEN TRAL RAILROAD SAYS BUMPER CROPS WILL HAVE ENCOURAG ING RESULT. Chicago, June 13. Prosperity is re turning rapidly, the wholesale houses here feeling much more of its stimu lus than industrial interests and rail roads, but all lines of business are watching the crop prospect with more eagerness than ever before, and hope fully, for good crops and good prices are predicted. President J. T. Hara han of the Illinois Central railway, one which is very dependent on agri cultural prosperity said: "Beneficial results attending a bountiful crop will have an encouraging effect upon busi ness generally, and I think that as soon as crop conditions throughout the land are assured there will be a gradual resumption of general busi ness activity." Dun and Bradstreets reports point out the all-importance of the successful moving of the crops which, includes the Imperative need that the system of crop marketing which cares for the surplus at harvest be not disturbed by unwise legislation. In checking the evil of "bucket shops" which do not deal in real commodities, Oklahoma recently enacted a law which for lack of discriminating pro visions drove out of the state the legi timate board of trade interests as well as the bucketshops. In expectation of the successful mo-Ang of the crops in the west the manufacturing inter ests that center here are gradually increasing their forces, as are those in the east The coal business has not yet felt this increase, and the lumber business has had an enormous falling off, awaiting a revival of building when the money frm this year's crop is put into circulation. Only a fraction of the crop will be needed at the time all of it Is harvested, but the system of exchanges furnish a market where speculative interests can and do carry the major part of the load under the future delivery system which begins with the farmer and ends with the consumer. That the commercial and banking interests were right in de nouncing attempts to cripple this sys tem has had recent illustrations in the south, where similar attempts in respect to cotton curtailed the market and reduced prices, while last year the active market of the exchanges advanced the value of wheat hundreds of millions of dollars.
