II WAGNER'S REVIEW II
Closing Stock Letter.
New York, Aug. 26. The first part
of this morning's session showed ir
regularity and some weakness that
was natural enough, but it was soon
the same old Btory, namely, the losses
were recovering and then the market
grew dull. As we see it. the attractive
proposition is buying into the market.
Big Four dividend on the preferred
stock was passed today.
Liverpool, Aug. 26. Wheat influ
enced opening late strength in Amer
ica yesterday. The expected increass
in the visible here ana the fine Wea
ther in France and Germany served to
check the advance. Later shorts cov
ered moderately and prices advanced
on light Russian offer:, "and disappoint
ing offers of new wheat everywhere.
Strength in corn had an effect, corn
higher. Shorts covered on the strength

and the firmness with spot market 4c

A Few Things.
Chicago. Aug. 26. la 1910 Russia
commenced to export wheat heavily I
Aug. 13 to 20. In 1911 her weekly to
tals were signally light ail fall. In
1912 her 3,000.000 to 4,000,000 weeklv
export amounts commenced Sept. 7.
For the week ending Aug. 23, 1913,
Russia exports about 2,000,000 only
and she must, make her showdown In
the coming two or three weeks. If
her wheat surplus is small then little
old North America must mark up the
The after crop raising movement of

crop promise, though springing from
the fag end of a 2,530,000.000 yield.
The weekly North American ship

our big surp"us, but also shows Euro
pean dependency. Corn market is in
the fluctuatory stages, which always
follow star upturns. The heat, lime
light being removed, corn seeks its
natural economic leveL .
The long distance side of the coarse
grains retains its glamor. Lesson of
the approaching September-October
period in products is to avoid pur
chases on advances except when a real
scarcity of hogs and products.
By end of week the corn market will
have endured a lengthy spell In the
ro'.e of "hea orphan" and we shall be
closer to positivism as to Its imme
Any further attack on the grain list
should bring a lively rally. The main
tenance of advances however depends
on change of news.
Morning Grain Letter.
Chicago, Aug. 26. Temperatures
were 100 to 102 In Kansas, Oklahoma
and parts of Nebraska on Monday. No
rain of consequence fell in the corn belt
yesterday. Cash corn prices in the
west are 70c to 75c. September corn
threatens to sell at 75c again, as there
are only 900,000 corn in Chicago. Gen
eral ideas favor rallies in wheat, corn
and oats during this week. There are,
however, ten mlllioi. wheat and eleven
million-oats in Chicago at elevators.
which fact may hold the bulges. Chi
cago No. 2 red Is quoted 3c above the
September price. Kansas and Nebras
ka corn news is worst on crop. Form
er complaints are overdone. Fifty re
ports this morning. Rains helped corn
in Iowa, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.
Nebraska requires rain. Soil in 60 per
cent of winter wheat belt is in fair
shape for plowing. Cotton market Is
having Its damage turn. The previous
80 cotton conditio n is cut to 70 by pri
vate reports due to hot dry weather.
Judging from basis of our reports this
week the September government con
dition of corn will be lucky to exceed
68. Northeast Nebraska sends 25 per
cent guess in sections. In central west
some hope is entertained of late corn
making a fair yield, all things consid
ered. One year ago September corn
held the 72 to 73c level from Aug. 26
to Sept. 30, recoving from dips. Last
September the crop promise was tre
mendous, but entering the month of
September Chicago corn stores were
nothing at about half a million. Also
last September Chicago received a
very large amount o corn, but shipped
liberally. The situation this Septem
ber is such as to encourage belief in
sharp September corn upturns.

The northern low has moved east

ers and thunderstorms in the eastern
portion of the lake region and In the

re also noted in the lower Missouri
valley and most of the Rocky moun
tain region, with the greatest barom
etric depression over northern Alberta,
and ahowefs have occurred at occas

plateau. The barometers are highest
on the Atlantic slope and the north

Amendments Proposed at Chi
cago Meeting Called Dis
ruption of Reform.
Washington, D. C, Aug. 26. Presi
dent Wilson will veto any currency
bill sent him by congress carrying a
provision for a central bank of con
trol of issue of currency or any of the
other cardinal features of the recom
mendations of the bankers' conference
The president considers the sugges
tions of the bankers disruptive of the
entire currency reform plan of the dem
ocratic party and in direct antagonism
to the provisions of the Baltimore con
vention platform which demanded
equal, treatment for all bank custom
ers. Congressional -friends of the presi
dent carried this idea of the presi
dent's position on currency legislation
to the house democratic caucus yes
terday and it was injected into consid
eration of the Glass-Owen currency bill
and senate tolerance of amendments
to which agreements had been given1
The bankers' recommendations will
not be considered by the house unless
tbey are presented by a republican
member, and then they will be bowled
ovr with as little discussion as possi
ble. The bankers will make their fight
in the senate. House members would
not even discuss the bankers' amend
ments yesterday. Cnairman Glass and
other members of the house banking
and currency committee agreed in con
demnation of the changes proposed.
Representative Henry, leader in the
figirt.for an agricultural currency, wis
deserted by his followers aud saw
them vote for the following compro
mise provision, which was written into
the currency bill without a dissenting
"Upon the indorsement of any mem

BUFFALO BILTS NEW DEAL
He Hat Signed Up to Finish the Sea
son With a Rival ShoA.
Buffalo Bill, after a long and spec
tacular career as a public showman
has fallen upon evil days in his old
age. His show became bankrupt in
Colorado and word now comes that this
was due to the action of Bonfils and
Tammen, proprietors of the ' Denver
Post and a paper in Kansas City. It
seems that these gentlemen are the
owners of the Sells-Floto show, and
that they loaned the Buffalo Bill aggre
gation $20,000 to start the season with
They also, according to the same story,
stood good for the printing account
with a Cincinnati concern. This
amounted to $66,000.
As soon, however, as the Buffalo
Bill-Pawnee Bill show got inside tht
Colorado state line, Bonfils and Tarn
men closed It up and put it out of busi
ness. They then signed Buffalo Bill
at a handeome salary for next season Argus.
