The change waa due partly to an apparently ove rsolrl wfonditloa of the market and to reports of damage to the crop In Missouri. An Im proved demand for cash wheat here and In (he northwest also served to create a better feeling. A feature In the cash situ ation which waa freely commented upon and which undoubtedly hsd some effect on trading was the smallnesa of local receipts, only one carload being reported for today, while the estimate fur tomorrow showed absolutely no wheat in prospect. The top point for July was reached at H.ltV Prices sagged aomewhat from the top on profit taking, but the close waa about steady, with July at $1.U.

The largest part of the transactions In stocks today was made In a handful of selected securities Th reasons for the selection were obscure so far as any authentic news was con cerned. There was a cloud of rumors in circulation all day, but none of tlnse was confirmed. The anthracite group amongst the rail roads was the favorite subject of these rumors. The supposition persisted that something was about to occur which would Place ot value to the stockholders. Tht favorite rumur was that the coal mining properties would bo separated from the rail roads and, In some wsy, distributed to the railroad stockholders. Tha special atten tion given to the Delaware Hudson gave rise to a rumor that It was ta figure In the prnpoaed adjustment In a particular way, owing to the broad scope of the charter privilege. The assertion that an Increase of the Delaware & Hudson dividend was Im minent was met with the explanation that this company declares a full year's dlvl dend In December for quarterly distribu tion, leaving no occasion for a decision on the subject earlier than next December. The speculative sentiment was tinged more or less with suspicion by these evidences of Inconsistency In the explanations of some of the market movementa. Tha Rock Is land demonstration was attributed to the recent return from a foreign trip of one of tha capitalists most prominent In that and a number of other properties which have moved In response to the supposed resump tion of srock market activities by this In terest. The upward start In the Southern Railway stocks was unexplained by anv special news. This, coupled with that in Rock Island, gave an appearance of favor for tha low priced stocks, which awakened some sympathetic movements In other stocks. In the day's market the general tone was firm, but the movement was nar row. Prices gave way at tha Inst after holding all day. The Harrlmans started upward, but met selling pressure ngain, such aa has been In evidence in those stocks for some time past. The news with most bearing on the pros pect for affsirs came from the western grain fields, where abundant rains were re ported with greatly increased promise for the rapid progress of the crops. Tha re views by accepted authorities on Iron and steel trade conditions were regarded as confirmatory of the more confident feeling that has been growing up concerning the outlook there. The foreign exchange rate was firm and private discount rates rose both In London and Paris. The time monoy market here was reported a trifle easier, without any quotable change In rates. Favorable deductions were drawn from the unimportant dimensions of the French strike demonstration. The caution of the speculation In view of the suspicious signs In the market waa exemplified again In the way In which price gave way at the end of the day and closed weak. B.inds were firm.

This makes tha total for the week over 6,000 head less than the same days last week, but about on a par with two weeks ago and a year ago. The quality was very fair again this morning, there being being a large proportion of well finished beef cattle. Buyers of beef steers seemed to feel that they put on more than was necessary yesterday and as a result they started out prety cautiously this morning. As a result their bids were decidedly lower and as salesmen were backward about taking off, the trade was a good deal of a drag an the morning. Yesterday's market was ao wild that it was no easy matter to make comparisons that would suit all cases. Thus western hayfeds sold at the same prices as yesterday, while on the other hand cornfeds in many cases were as much aa 10c lower, while some salesmen thought they had tu take off all that was put on yesterday. There were thirty or thirty-five cars of eowa and heifers In sight and as the de mand wa good, they sold quite readily at the same price as yesterday. Pretty much everything along that Una was cleaned up in good season. There were no heavy feeders to amount to anything coming, but there waa quite a little supply of Blockers and they were extremely slow salu at prices that were fully 60c lower than the high lime a week ago.

While salesmen held on. doing their best to force an advance. In the end they had to give in, with the result that th bulk of the hogs sold In yesterday's notches, that la, largely at H. 987.15 and on up aa high as 17.30 for the best heavy. In snlte of the fact that the market was very slow all the morning, pretty much everything had changed hands by ll o'clock. SHEEP In mob respects this morning's market was practically void of any new feature. In Itself this fact is worthy of note when a contrast la drawn between to day session and the spectatular sessions of the laat fortnight. Receipts were light, consisting largely of lambs. Wooled and shorn supplies were about equally divided. Outside of a few cars of first class stuff, the bulk of re ceipts consisted of common end even trashy stuff. Prices ruled about stesdy at the opening and the bulk of sup plies were sold on this basis. In a few Instances, trading flgurea looked to be a shade lower than yesterday, but limited, and common receipts made It very difficult to come to a definite conclusion regarding any decline. The general mar ket was steady to easier. The trade waa slow, especially a.fter some of the better quality lambs had changed hands. Three loads of Improved Mexican lambs brought the top of the day 19.26. This Is a dime below the record price. Two or three lots of spring lambs sold at HOOD. There was nothing extra good In shorn lambs with which to test tops. The best band of westerns brought IM.00. A string of pretty good shorn ewes moved at lii.JB.
