WAGNER'S REVIEW II
Morning Stock Letter.
New York, July 17. London did not
respond to our advance In stocks.
Prices sold one-half to two points off,
with Canadian Pacific weak. It was
noteworthy that the buying power on
the rise was light and after prices
were bid up bids were frequently with
drawn in active issues, such a3 Union
Pacific and Reading. In a word, much
of the buying came from shorts, and
when they covered, the demand van
ished. There is an element of danger
in the eastern labor situation, due to
the demand of the railroads that their
request for reduction of certain wages
be entertained in the forthcoming ar
bitration. We have reason to believe
that the men will, refuse to arbitrate
such demands. If they do, we will
again be face to face with danger of
a strike. The Mexican situation is
considered by some as more grave,
President Wilson so far lias ignored
the position of other nations so far as
we can judge. Now something must
be done. Germany is reported to be
pressing for action. Yesterday's sharp
rally was, in our opinion, nothing
more than a move against the shorts,
These having covered, prices will slip
back. Under no circumstances would
we buy except on sharp declines.
cash stuff Wednesday was only fair.
There is a printed report here cover
ing oats threshings of 21 bushels
against 46 last year in seven states.
Chicago wheat receipts are enlarging.
All grains show marked disposition to
adopt a rallying tone. Export sales
of wheat are heavy. Howard Bartels i
figure 248,000,000 United States wheat
for export and carry over, about .11,
000,000 above last July. They have
also figured the grain promise. They
make the oats promise of Illinois, In
diana, Ohio and Iowa 350,000,000 bush
els against 572,000,000 last year. If
the final oats yields are in line the
fall run of oats will certainly be dis
appointing. Kansas City September
wheat is 23c below Liverpool Octo
ber. Chicago September wheat is
17 c below Liverpool October. The
last similar hot wave in the south
west during 1911 cut Kansas corn
about 50,000,000 and Nebraska corn
about 40,000,000. Wheat and oats are
possibly a sale on any bulge today

day of 100 to 110 temperatures on

of these states registered 100 to 102.
The northwest and Canada are again

would reduce the August condition to
80 or 81. Shipments of wheat, corn

from Illinois. My oats repdrts run 20

About half say some gain since July
1 and the other half say loss. Gen
eral oats condition shows little im
provement. Bear pressure Is entirely
due to old crop liberality which will
vanish in September and October.
Our Wednesday corn reports again
average high. Southwest news indi
cates a 20 point loss in Kansas and
10 in Nebraska; otherwise as a whole
corn condition is ' reported liberal
Impression pertains that December
corn Is the leader and the September
premium is not justifiable. Alabama
and a few southern states will show a
big corn decline this month.
Hay crop looks 75 per cent of last
years' . giant yield and is a factor in
the coarse grains. Period of July 4
to 16 has brought extensive rains over
central west The amount is perhaps
below a July average but delays rain
anxiety for moment
On the July dip, corn has resumed
much of the wondrous speculative an
ticipation that marked May and June.
Would follow December corn. Claims
of certain big oats improvement on
the July rains can be doubted. Com
parisons of late improvement are fu
tile as we can see now that oats In
1912 were never below 100 per cent
The provision market regards the
July 15 amount of provision supplies
as too moderate. Position of July
longs is strong. Pork prices are 25
per cent above last July. Ribs and
la'rd are 10 to 20 per cent above last
year. Supplies are 40 per cent be'.ow.
After the July shorts are in markets
should break somewhat
September wheat closed June at the
90c level and a 4c decline for July is
a full average.
Pleasant Place to Stand Isn't It
-In Front of an Electric Fan?
There is a lot of comfort for a few cents a week in that
littje fan. Put one in your home and you will find use for
it every minute of every hot day. In the evening', too, to
go to sleep by. Let it run all night. A couple of cents
will pay the bill for current. Ever hear of cheaper com
fort? We are selling large numbers of the .residence type
fans this year. Decide to make your home comfortable
with one. The 1913 models are the most economical and
efficient, and the lightest fans ever made.

Liverpool, July 17. The wheat mar

by strength in America yesterday.
Later there waa some realizing in a
moderate way stimulated by the pres

declined. The weather in France was
better and private advices received
here from Russia reports better wea

New York, July 17. During the first
part of the morning stocks were, we
might say, unsettled, the trading being
influenced by the foreign tendency;
subsequently the tone was very satis

exception of California petroleum, as
is usual in the case of a decline in a

United States Steel common; the Hill
stocks and the Tractions showed a
very steady tone. In Steel, the talk
was all of a bull pool, but the chances
rather favor, we think, a belated siiort
interest being forced to go home. The

would seem likely, will be a question
of crop news, but it has been demon

yesterday afternoon by appearing at
the weekly meeting of the Women's
Social and Political union. Miss Kea
ney was arrested during the uproar
caused by a clash between the police
and sympathizers with the suffragets.
After the meeting Mrs. Pankhurst
evaded the officers, but she was cap
tured later and taken to jail by a
detective who saw her leave the place
in a taxicab and pursued her in anoth
er. The two vehicles engaged in a
wild race through the crowded streets.
Mrs. Pankhurst said she had come
to the meeting against her doctor's
orders, but that if she was well enough
to be tortured in prison by Reginald
McKenna, the home secretary, she
also was well enough to attend a
meeting of her comrades. She le.-ied
heavily on a table as she addressed
a few fervent sentences to the audi
ence. "I am a rebel, as is Sir Edward
Carson," she said. "Both of us are
rebels because there is no other way
open to us to redress our grievances.
I would sooner be a rebel than a
slave. I would rather die than sub
mit. I mean to be a voter in the land
of my birth or die. My challenge
to the government is, 'Give me freedom
or kill me.."

plained the state of affairs. I prom
ised to play along, to do the best I
could, and to remain in Chicago as
ioug as possible. They agreed to re-
main and take a chance. I thought
then that I could pay chorus salaries
on Tuesday. When that day came
and I found I could not I assembled
the chorus and explained tluU we
would play the week out at least; that
1 could not assure ihem their salaries,
but that I did assure them their hotel
bills and transportation home.
"Acting on this proposition, I asked
the chorus to bring their hotel bills
to the theater last Saturday. I had
about $700 with which to meet them.
To my amazement some of them pre
sented bills &s high as $40 and $5.0.
These were from choru3 girls and
men earning $20 and $25 a week.
There waa no question but that either
tliey had lived at an extraordinary
rate or that the bills were padded un
der an understanding that the amount
in excess of the actual bill was to be
refunded to them by the hotels. So
far as possible I paid these bills. Also
during the week I gave various mem
bers of the company small sums for
immediate expenses. Consequently,
the management owes the chorus only
about an average of $3 each.
"In an effort to raise funds, we gave
an extra Thursday matinee, Miss
Scheft appearing, and took in $950.
That money went to tho company.
Before leaving Chicago I told the
company that I was going to New
York solely to get money for them,
and that is what I am doing here.

When the sun arose this morning it
found plenty of opposition in the Mo
line railroad yards where Hingllng
brothers' trains were unloading all of
their red and golden circus. Four
trains brought the big show into the
city with 86 cars bringing 1,300 people.
COO horses, herds of elephants, and tha
famous harness teama of camels and
zebras. No alarm clocks were needed
to get the small boy out of bed this
morning, for he was down at the
tracks before dawn waiting for the
first glimpse of the circus, and there
was with this youthful throng a large
majority of those real, redblood-.d
boys who never grow up, and are al
ways Peter Pans when the circus
comes to town and just as eager to
lead the spotted ponies to water.
The afternoon performance began at
2 o'clock and the big tent was crowd
ed. Opening the bill came the spec
tacle of Joan of Arc, the characters
telling in pantomine the dramatic
story of the Maid of Orleans, who
went forth to battle for country and
her king. Nothing so richly costumed
or so effectively presented has ever
been given here before. The opening
pageant, theballet of dancing girls and
the tournament were veritable sur
prises. The spectacle was followed
by the circus performance in which j
375 men and women appeared. More
novelties than ever before are present
ed, the Ringlings having brought from
Europe the majority of their people.
The final performance will take
place tonight at 8 o'clock. The doors
open an hour earlier, allowing time
to visit the extensive menagerie tnd
also to enjoy the operatic concert ren
dered by the military band.
The show grounds are at Fourteenth

that he and the star did their best to
prevent the disaster and to mitigate
the consequences thereof.
Tho revival of "Mile. Mcdia't" was
the enterprise of the Fritzi Schuff

investors interested by Mr. Anderson I

was made, and an engagement iuaug- j
