There I mi enormous shortage In the July wheat future at Chicago. It la be lieved by well-posted men tn the trade that tho longs In May wheat have taken tlio opposite, end of July. In case the May wHeHt Is boosted to higher level the July output Is more than likely to ympathizc. With a crop scare and the Miitrt In the May uneasy and Inclined to cover, there will bo enough Investment Mtylng of July to maek all shorts uneasy und to chatiKe their position In thstt par tlrular future. Those who arc now carry niS the May In Chlcngo, and who l.ave 'u July sold, have doubtless taken their position 'with the Intention of delivering wheat taken during May on July 'con tracts. The wheat market ha for some little time been tied up rather tightly niul the controlling Interest Is the longs In the May future. Recent price changes, as woll as recent changes In sentiment, Imvo been brought about by the forced swinging of tho speculative pendulum, with the May bulls at the lover. The tlioo Is rapidly approaching when the i rop promise will becomo mbre and more uncertain. According to accredited authorities the winter wheat plant Is do. lng well In many localities. Messages were received ftom scattering sections of the southwest saying that while the top growth of the plant Is brown and It falls to present a lively appearance, tha plant Is well rooted and that It will be heard from later on with growing weather. Circumstances and conditions surrounding the wheat was both bullish and bearish yesterday. The export trade was again In evidence with reported tak. ings In all positions of sixty-eight boat loads. Otherwise the cash markets were lull, with only 43,000 bushels changing hands at Chicago. Cash wheat was un changed to Wo lower. The corn bulla wore somewhat disap pointed because of a change In the cash situation as exporters reported bids out of line and the offerings on the Increase. Growers In the Interior were freer sellers of cash corn and with the car situation naslor the movement to primary markets will doubtless be much larger. Cash corn. Hlc lower.
