said regarding th"1 action of Con
gress: "After a long debate In which con
siderable acrimony was displayed, the
final result on the tariff m"nsure was
reached with apparent good feeling.
Th.s was largely due to the tact of
President Taft who accomplished
wonder In harmonizing the oppo!m;
forios. Some wnuted higher ami
dome wnnt-d lower duties.
"The schedules as adopted reaffirm the
protective principle. There was no
llkellhin.il at any time that It would bo
overthrown or abandoned. Wherever
rates ha,ve been advanced they apply to
articled that may be classed as luxuries.
On practically all other articles the
tendency has been downward where
charges have been m.-do. (Vntrnl New-

appreciable extent. The new law a' a

the original plan Is to ride thn same

"If the Texans wanted to be up-to-date

at 2 p. m. the department of agriculture
will Issno Its August crop report on the
vleld and nnalltv on August 1 of winter
wheat, the condition of spring wheat at
harvest, alco of corn, oats, barley, pota
toes, tr.bncco and flax, the acreage and
cordltlon of buckwheat, the acreage and
production of rve and hay and the stocks
of oats in farmers' hands.
Thnt the report will show bearish fig
ures there Is nttle or no doubt, say
Pnlne, Webber & Co. As to the market
effect, rpitte number nre nf opinion
that bearish crop nnd other conditions
hnve been w-oll discounted In present
prices of nil grnlns. New Tork says tho
new No. 2 Red arriving there Is not ns
good nunllty ns Inst season, mnny ber
ries being shriveled nnd blenched nnd
rather light overage weight. Type sam
ples of new winter wheat received nt
Liverpool from Chlcngo nnd Knnsis City
have failed to come up to the F.nglNh
standard, and lienco are not pronounced
contract grndn. The snmples, however,
were mnde np from the early run of
wheat, which wnn generally damp, but
which, will douhtleess Improve with con
tinued dry weather, Kxperts estimate
that the entirn spring wheat crop of tho
Northwest would bo harvested nbout
There Is no doubt thnt thn winter
wheat crop lias turned out much larger
than tho trndo generally anticipated, and
the spring wheat crop has developed
under the most favorable conditions In
many years, says Wrenn Bros, Ar Co. It
looks ns though the country was going to
raise about 7'V.000,C1.1 bushels of wheat.
That we will have an exportable surplus
to dispose of Is assured, The important
factor, therefore, In thn price making,
will be the volume of the export demand.
At present prices Kurope should he tnk

Hint there Is a good export uuslness bo-
Ing done which Is not being reported. So
far as the Chicago markets are con
reined, prices hern are more legitimate
than for some tlnin past. Thero Is no
doubt but thnt when the spring wheat
crop commences to move thnt somn de
cllpe In vnhies will occur, but we are of
the opinion Hint tho greatest shrinkage

crop progresses thnt winter wheats will
