Wheat cables and lower, reflecting easier Win nipeg market yesterday. Looks like trading affair, but prefer working from the buying side for possibilities there is in same. Corn cables lower. Showers and rains scattered throughout the belt Local stock of corn increased for the week 56,000 bushels. Today's weath er conditions are expected to change the "trend of the market temporarily and give lower prices. Oats Local stocks show a slight in crease for the week but are still heavy. Canadian exports of oats have ranged during last five years from 3 million up to 10 million. Feel friendly on minor reactions from here. Wet Blanket on Grain. Chicago, Sept 16. Weekly , govern' ment forecast prophesying a fair amount of moisture for the entire grain belt acted as a wet blanket on the grains today. An active demand continues for cash wheat. both to domestic millers and exporters. The . southwestern states report considerable wheat feeding and millers are reporting good sales of flour. We feel that this cereal is a purchase at this leveL Corn market today Is a disappoint ment to its friends and further reces sion is probable. We see nothing to change our Yievts and advise the plac ing of purchasing resting orders. Oats held well. Receipts are mod' erate considering the size of the crop. Less heard of Canadian Importations. The high plice of 'feeding substitutes should prove a help to the price.
