II WAGNER'S REVIEW II
Closing Stock Lettsr.
New York, July 1. Stocks showed
a better tone today, closing firm. As
we pointed out earlier in the day, the
improvement was mostly based on the
rainfall in the southwest, which means
much to the crops of several states
which have been drouth-stricken for a
fortnight. Oklahoma, Kansas and
Missouri were the ones affected. As
an offset to this, the government

Money Stock Letter.
New York, July 1. With the Union
Pacific decision out of the way, the
stock market will turn to other mat
ters. The actual handing down of the
decision resulted in general apathy in
our stocks in London. Some have
held the money situation the chief
influence. This may be patrly true,
but to our mind it is only one of sev
eral. Nobody can forecast how crops
will weather the present month. New
steel orders are reported to be only
half of the 'output. Stocks of copper
metal have heavily increased, accord
ing to current reports. The Balkan
matter is unquestionably an important
influence abroad and incidentally here.
It may get worse, but may suddenly
blow over. Stocks should not be
bought except when very weak. Take '
moderate profits. '
Opening Grain Letter.
Chicago, July 1. Illinois, Indiana
and Ohio received most of the Monday
hot wave, with 94 to 99 temperatures.
There were many cool spots in the
northwest. In the past 24 hours 14
out of 24 west central reporting sta
tions have received rain. Canada was
cool Monday. '
Wheat clearanres are small. Wheat
movement is liberal. Not much in
IcagO, but liberal amount has been
bought t0 arrive this month.
There is now a lot, of corn at Chi
cago. Total'ia 60,600,000, and without
a' strong eastern demand It will be
enough for the moment. Cash demand
for com and oats is only moderate. .
Winnipsg writes that export demand
for wheat is 'still flow and wheat
