Long Commission Co. Grain Letter.
[Furnished by Long Commission Co.,
403 Main St. Telephone No. 100.]
CHICAGO, Oct. 11.—Wheat—The
market was easier daring the morn
ing but, by m'd-day was showing
signs of strength and had recovered
over one cent from the range of in
side prices. A good deal of selling
had occurred early because Argentine
markets were lower and cables, by
way of Etagland, hinted at the possi
bility of rain. Uneasiness from this
source was dispelled later, however,
by dirtct cables to the effect that "dry.
hot weather continued and the dam
age is spreading. There is also some
unrest on the part of holders because
Great Britain is making some change
in her methods of securing wheat
but the fact of the matter is that they
are not satisfied with their prospects
for consumptive requirements later
on, and are now attempting to secure
all possible available supplies with the
greatest secrecy. Wheat is a good
investment on the breaks.
Corn—Sympathised with wheat, but
recovered quickly when wheat turned
strong. Good sized cash sales were
reported, some of which was for ex
port. Peoria reported a good demand
and higher prices. Many are expect
ing a break when the movement of
new corn starts, and, if such a break
occurs from this or other causes, the
buying side looks safer.
Oats—Oats were easy early with
other grains, but were well supported
at the decline by cash and commission
houses. The prices at which bran I
and other feeds are now selling in-1
creases the consumption of .oats and'
an advance In prices within a short
time is indicated.'. „'\v
Grain Review.
[United Press Leased Wire Service.]
CHICAGO, Oct. 11.—Uneasiness
still exists over the submarine situa-1
tion, but this' is offset somewhat in
today's grain market by Argentine
droughts and by the reported action
of the British government In com-,
mandeerlng wheat in England and
Canada, indicating a shortage. De
cember wheat was down 1% at 158
