On the Chicago Board of Trade Wheat
Was Regarded as Uncertain
A Strong Element on the Bear Side Was
the San Francisco Col
Transactions in the Financial Circles of
Wall Street—The General
Chicago, Aug. 29 — Wheat was regarded as
uncertain stuff early to-day. The final and
complete collapse of the San Francisco cor
ner was the strong element on the bear side.
Reports from the Northwest contained much
about dirty wheat and about disappointing
yield in Dakota and elsewhere. September
wheat opened %c lower, but in thirty min
utes it was selling at GB*4C, only Vie under
Saturday's close. As the session advanced
decided interest was taken in the visible
statement. Traders were prepared for any
thing in the neighborhood of a million bush
els decrease, and were therefore agreeably
surprised at the official exhibition making
the decrease 1.425,000 bushels. The effect
was an almost immediate advance to G9c for
September. This comparatively high
figure caused more or less realiz
ing, which carried prices back,
the last sale being made at [email protected]
for September. Corn also at lower prices.
There was considerable nervousness for an
hour, but prices soon rallied under a fair de
mand, and September corn started at 40% c,
told up to -lit and steadied before noon at
40% c, the closing price Saturday. May corn
first sold at 44t,2C, %c under the close, but
later sold up slowly to 44% c, the last price of
the week. The visible supply statement an
nounced an increase of 230,000 bu for the
week, and it had ■ discrediting effect on buy
ers. and there was a decline to the close.
September closed at 40Vsc or Vie under Sat
urday. May reached 45c for the highest
point and closed at 44»4C, or Vfec under Sat
urday's closing. Oats were slow and heavy,
speculative orders were light and the special
spring demand was hardly adequate to the
supply. September opened at 24V2C,
sold to 24% c and closed at 21% c.
Provisions exhibited a quiet and easy feeling
and there were no important changes to note.
A few orders from outside shorts tended a
steadier feeling early and slightly improved
prices were paid in a few cases, but outside '
figures were not fully supported to the close.
Offerings of all descriptions were moderate
and there was no particular pressure to sell
and the demand was confined to providing
for a few contracts, or transfers, from Sep
tember to October deliveiy nt the current
differences. The shipping demand was
moderate and the offerings were fair. The
receipts of products were not very large, and
the shipments of all kinds quite liberal and
widely distributed. Eastern and foreign
markets exhibited no particular change.
September lard opened at $0.40, sold down
to $0.35 and closed at $0.371.2. September
short ribs opened at $7.90, sold down to
£7.85 and closed at $7.90- Mess pork was
practically unchanged.

Duluth "Wheat.
Special to the Globe.
Duluth, Minn., Aug. 29.—A fair business
was done on 'change to-day. and prices were
slightly above Saturday's close. The demand
was moderate for futures and very good for
cash. Indeed. cash wheat does not want for
purchaser*, the demand exceeding the sup
ply, and far round lot* it is worth as much as
October. The clearances from the seaboard
were light, and it is generally thought that
for the coming month they will full off con
siderably. The decrease of 284,000 bushels
in store here whs Jess than was
expected. Receipts are growing larger here
nnd will be heavy iii a few days. The re
ports from the West are that threshing is
going on at a rapid rate and shipments will
be fair. The close whs easy here at about
yutrfde prices. Cash Wheat—Sales of 7 cars
of No. 1 hard were made at 71Vjc, and 4.000

stock market to-day presented few features
of interest, and in a measure subsided into
the duuness existing during the week before
last. I nder the improved feeling generated
on Saturday, stocks opened strong, and the
demand from London and the shorts made a
further improvement. But when this had
been satisfied, which was not long after the
opening, the usual dullness appeared and
considerable pressure was brought against
the list. Operators are a ting developments
in the Oregon Northern Pacific stocks, and
these were attacked again, and Oregon
Navigation. which had opened
up 2 per cent.. was knocked
off 2*4. and closed unchanged.
Oregon Transcontinental and the Nortnern
Pacifies were weaker on the general list early
iv the day. and Western Union and Pacific
Mail later. Missouri Pacific led the early
advance, spurting up sharply though most of
the gain was afterward lost. There was an
utter absence of news and the bears seem to
have ceased the rumors and talk which bad
influence upon speculation last week. The
first sales were made this morning at ad
vances of from 1* to % per cent over Satur
day's final figures, and on a fairly active bus
iness further gains were established in the
early trading. Missouri Pacific being most
prominent with a spurt of 1% followed by-
Wheeling and Lake Erie with 1%. The lat
ter held its advantage, but the general list
was soon depressed below the opening fig
ures, and Missouri Pacific lost most of its
gain. The market then became very quiet
with scarcely any movement in prices until
in the afternoon, when a further fractional de
pression was brought about. The dullness was
then intensified and lasted until the last hour
when some advances were made, and the
market closed quiet but firm. The entire ac
tive list, with but few exceptions, show
small fractional advances, but Wheeling and
Lake Erie is up 3 and Missouri Pacific lVfe.
Railroad bonds were dull and featureless.
Sales. (715,000. The general list was steady,

There was some inquiry for wheat, and
buyers began to show some disposition to
take hold of new. The higher grades of old
wheat still have a decided call At a premium.
Corn is steady and firm. Choice qualities of
oats are scarce and higher. Barley is dull
and in light demand. Rye is quiet and
steady. Ground feed is without change.
Corn meal steady. Bran unchanged. The
hay market is glutted and we would advise
shippers to withhold shipments till the pres
ent surplus is worked off. as the indications
are that there will be a still further break in
the market. Potatoes steady. Eggs are

The quality of apples continues to show
some improvement, and with a good inquiry
from both local and outside retailers trade
keeps up to an active figure. Receipts are
free ana all wants are easily supplied, though
not many fancy stand amies are seen. .Sales
hold at $2.5tXR3. But few cranberries are
arriving yet. and owing to the small and un
attractive appearance of the berry and tlie
abundance of other fruits, prices are not
steady. Butter is wilhout change, with re
ceipts holding up quite liberally, and only
moderate inquiry for anything except fancy
dairy and choice creamery. Cheese is with
out change. Eggs are much firmer, and have
advanced lc since Saturday. Sales are firm
at 12c. Stocks on hand are not large and the
present inquiry just about keeps receipts
well cleaned up. Grapes are lower. Prairie

On the local board there was a fair activity
from local millers and a few outside orders
were being filled. Very little change from
Saturday's market were apparent except that
sample "tables were rather more profusely
covered. Prices ruled steady and averaged
about the same. Local stocks for the week
show a decrease of 2t'6.250 bu. At SL Paul
they are 20,000 bu less and at Duluth they
declined 284.628 bu. leaving at that point
less than 1.000.000 bu of wheat, and less
than 250.000 bu of the No. 1 hard grade.

Flour—There was a quiet but steady trade
through mail and wire orders for domestic' i
distribution, . and some movement reported j
on foreign account. The latter is now about
on a parity with the home request, and ' to- !

as fast as made. Prices have undergone very
little alteration for several weeks, and while
the wheat market remains so flat there is lit- I
' tie prospect of any sharp changes in flour
values. The late high prices of bran and
