Chicago, July 31. Wheat opened
a trifle firm this morning, but trie
firmness was soon taken advantage
of to sell wheat against purchase
by cash houses. After this tempo
rary firmness, the market resumed
I the same aspect as it has for the pant j
three days, gradually selling off, t-.-
day. The
new low record each
market rallied about 3S i
in the last half hour and clewed dull
with a slight loss frr th day.
CORN Opened higher on the the
ory that the rains in Illinois. Iowa
and Missouri have been insufficient
to become optimistic over the crop
condition. !n the last hour, how
ever, there was Mberal selling by
July longs who became apprehensive
of large deliveries en July contracts
and they did not wish to take the
corn and pay for it, this brought
about a severe break in that option,
'closing the market weak with a loss!
j cuairacia. was uu iiimiuuh-iu uaru
in this cereal to cause almost a panic
to long holders of oats. July option
lost two cents a bushel, September
and ir.:ty one each.
PROVISIONS Weak in sympathy
with corn and general liquidation of
July ami September pork by belated

Merchants in
Calumet R
Form an Association.
The business men of Lake county
soon to organize what is to be
known as the Calumet Basines?
association. The significance
to thi- may be appreciated when it
is known that the primary purpose
of this organisation will be to se
ep re the co-operation of the leading
men of affairs in all of Uw cities
of the Calumet region asd to en
courage them to work harmoniously
together for the industrial advance
ment of the whole northern part f
Lake county.
It is proposed to hold a banquet in
'the near future at which all of the
! leading business men of the northern
i part of the county will be in at t end-
ance. Here a disotmdon of the in
dustrial situation will take place
and plans will be made to provide
some permanent organization which
will afford it- members the oppor
tunity of meeting ouch month to
discuss any plan that mny be pre
sented for consideration.
One of the most prominent busi
ness men and land owners in Indi
ana Harbor started the movement
and it has received the cordial en
dorsement of Hammond business men
without exception.
Mr. Maling of the East Chicago
Land company said in regard to
the plan: "The people of the Calumet
region should no longer censider
their cities independent communities.
In the larger sense it makes no dif
ference whether factories are built
in one of these cities or the other.
Their interests are identical and
what bene fits one, ' benefits all."
There is no section in the whole
country where outside capital is do
ing so much for the industrial ad
vancement of a communtiy and the
Calumet region has an opportunity
that its business men should prove
themselves worthy of.
New Clioms Has some of Best Sing

The members of the Hammond

Domberger and the Misses Hammond

The following ladies were present
last evening: Mesdames Olwin. El-
ridge, Minard, Kingwill, Bomberger
and the Misses Hofer, Gero. Cham
pagne, Robbins, Hammond and King.
Each one of the members has gain
e da reputation for herself as either
a singer or a performer on an instru
ment, and consequently Prof. Learn
ing will net be compelled to drill
raw material.
There had been talk for a long
time ahout organizing a ladies' cho

Hammond male chorus became evi
