CIIICAaO , AUR. 20. The grnlti markets
Etnrttd weak today , but wound up flrni and
With a nourish. Good demand In wheat and
corn canted the strength In these markets
and oats followed. Wheat closed with a
Kaln of l'/4c ' for September. Corn closed lo
higher and oats gilntil He. I'rovlslons flu-
iihcd higher nil around.
Wheat wag quite iictlvo within the cslnb
llshed range of lc. The feeling displayed
was etroneer. Initial transactions were at
n Uo to Uc decline , at G.1c for September ,
end gradually advanced from % c to Ic , cased
off Vic , rallied Ic , changed some , held steady
and closed with September ut 65'Ac. ' The
easier opening was duo to Rome extent to
the action of corn , which opened oft several
fractions , due to the large receipts of i,113
cars. New York , however , was ( Inner and
there was a decrease on ocean passage , which
counteracted the weaker tone , and , on free
buying by the local crowd , the price advanced
nnd was further helped later by the In-
crcas ? In the vUlble supply being smaller
than expected and the free acceptance. ? by
the continent of offers from this side. Ca
bles came In stronger and contitirntal advlcei
were "bullish" In ton : , which helped advance
prices. The weather In France was reported
\vet nnd was nlso something of a factor. The
moderately sharp upturn In corn also aided
the upward tendency. New York was a
iood ; buyer and the shorts , who sold freely
Saturday , covered on the upturn today.
Corn was weak nt the start , but soon
firmed up. Local players were covering
shorts and did not find sellers as plentiful as
they expected. The country sent some more
buying orders and both classes of buying
were In active competition at times for very
limited offerings. Crop reports were gen
erally as bad and In some cases were worao
than before. There was an active demand In
the cash crowd for tbe earliest offerings to
KO to store atJc per Imshel over the Sep
tember price for No. 2 yellow and at Septem
ber price for regular No. 2. September sold
nt the opening at from G2c down to 62Vic.
It rose to G-tV&c and closed at 53c. May
began at from Glc to Glc , sold as high as
DSVAo nnd closed at GS'/ic. '
The activity In the oats market did not
amount to very much , but during the session
quite a good business was transacted. Even
with a decrease In the visible supply of
cats of 1,789,000 bu. , the market ruled
firmer , Influenced by corn. September opnecl
Uo lower than It closed on Saturday , nt
29 0 , sold right up to 30c and closed nt
30V6c bid.
There was n fair amount of trade done In
the provision pit , but prices were higher
from the start , differing In that respect from
the grain markets. The markets stiffened
ns the session progressed. The hog receipts
were only SI,000 today , Instead of 31,000 , as
had been estimated , and only 1G.OOO head Is
tJtlmnted for tomorrow. January pork found
buyers at the opening nt J13.4G , ns ngalnst
$13.40 nt the close of Saturday , and ad
vanced to nnd closed nt $13.60. Lard Is lOc
higher than at the end of Saturday's ses-
elon nnd ribs 7',4o higher.

As usual on the first day of the week there
vra * not much change In the market on country
produce. The poultry market might be quoted
u little stronger , but aside from that the mar
ket was steady nt S.iturdiiy'H prices.
Some veiy Interesting flguiea bearing on the
Imlter and egg business have been complied by
N. Wateibury of New York , who tu looked upon
ns quite an authority In that line. His estimate
of CKRH In storage | 8 ns follows , exclusive of
Chicago , I'hlladelphla ami New York :

Mr. Waterbury estimates that Chicago had ut
thin lime from 25,000 tu DO.UOO cases more than
laxi year ; Philadelphia 20,000 tu 40,000 more ,
und New York alxiut BO.OOO In excess ut n year

This docs not look m > very bad , says Chicago

LONDON. Aug. 20. During the last week
money showed n slightly llrmer tendency , owing
to the prospect of war loans , and unless n for-
Hgn demand for gold arises no permanent Im
provement can be hoped for. lluslness at the
Stock exchange was livelier than for-u long time
past. The settlement of the account nnd reallz-
Ings to secure piollts checked the upward move
ment to some extent , but even the announcement
ut twu failures had little effect upon the buoy
ancy of the muiketa. Public conlldenca Is being
lestored and buyers will noon come for cheap
American and other stocks.
With Individual exceptions , filch as Oreek se
curities , which were weak on dllllcilltles that
have arisen In arriving nt n settlement with the
credltois , the rise was general In all the nur-
kels , more especially those for North nnd South
American securities. The doubtful harvest pios-
pect * here , duo to continued bad weather , are
offset by the belief that the passage of the
American tariff bill will quickly stimulate orders
for merchandise uf all kind * from the United
Stales ,
Canadian railway Keciirltlea followed the ad
vance In American railroad bonds und Sugar ,
which were ready to rc/pand to uiiy rise In Wall
street. Tlio advancei were : Denver & Illo

NE\V \ YORK , An ? . 20. The share specula
tion today was fairly active. During the
morning tlio trading was Irregular , but In the
afternoon the tone was decidedly strong , run
prices nt the close were at or near the besi
of the dcy and \ & \ per cent higher as com
pared with the fln.il sales of last Saturday ,
t.undon wns n small seller at the npnlng
but later bought moderately. There was at
times sales to realize the prollls of last
week's rise , but there was also a renewa
of the covering movement. Sugar led the
market , both In buoyancy and activity , sell-
Int ; upIV4 per cent to 114 % . and closing
within % per cent of the highest ; the pre
ferred gained 2 % per cent. The o her le.id-

Importations of all drugs are prohibited.
The Intention was to stop the bringing In

The new bill In the revenue sections taxes
playing cards and so If It becomes a law
nothing can be sold without a revenue stump.
Of these the treasury has none nnd It will
take- several months to have them engraved

The Kvcnlng Post says : A noteworthy
feature In today's trading was the narrow
fluctuations In the grangers , In view of the
comparatively heavy volume of transactions.
The range did not exceed one-half of 1 per
cent. This * was construed as reflecting n
support , which a moderate realizing move
ment did not weaken. Those who took a
broad view of the situation look for a slow ,
steady advance In values , accompanied by
healthy reactions. The news affecting the
market was In the main bullish.

MONDAY , Aug. 20.
Today's receipts consisted of about 2.20C
cattle , 3,800 hogs and 1,730 sheep , as agalns
1,000 cuttle nnd 0,100 hogs on Monday o
last week.
H will be noted that the receipts of hog
were the lightest for any day In a lorii
time. The cattle , as will bo noted from tin
representative sales , Were made up largcl >
of westerns , which are coining forward quite
rapidly at the present time.
CATTL.K There wcrc not many good
native beef steers on the market today , bill
theie was quite a showing of western steers
The weaker markets In the east nnd large
supplies had a naturally depressing effect
upon the TTiarket here and the trade was slou
at a decline , amounting In many cases to
lOc. A good deal of the advance made It
the market last week was lost today. There
were no native cattle good enough to brltif ,
$4 and the highest price paid was $3.90
The market on butchers' stock was also lower
on the more common grades , though the best
cows and heifers brought close to Saturday's
prices. The market on stockers nnd feeders
did not show any material change. The re
ceipts are not very large and the demand Is
limited. The general trade Is slow at very
low prices. Ilcpresentatlve sales :

HOGS Not only were the receipts of hogs
light , but the quality was poor. The ship
ping demand was light and advices from
eastern markets unfavorable , which made the
general trade slow. As to prices , the market
was all of 5c lower and In some cases lOc
lower. At the close the feeling was better
and the market a little stronger than at the
opening. The bulk of the sales were made
at J4/JO to $5.10 , against 14.90 to { 5.15 on
Saturday. Representative sales :
