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.

' Prices an Board of Trade.
CHICAGO, Jan. 18. All board of trade
markets were dull and featureless today
the usual weekend rltuatlon. Prices de
clined slightly.
There was a report that one of the
most Influential traders was buying
wheat, and this was formally denied, but
not until It caused a slight upward flurry.
In general the pit followed any Important
buying or selling orders, and In the ab
ense of these did notldng at all. Pri
mary receipts for the week were larger
than a week ago, the grain coming from
the southwest. Northwest receipts de
creased a little.
"Weakness in corn was bailed on reports
that down state points were selling spot
at concessions whloh could not be met
here and to the evaporation of the ex
port demand, Cash corn declined '4c. Im
portant longs were best sellers, and white
those who took It checked the decline,
they found themselves well supplied when
the session closed.
The dullness in oats was profound, and
the tone heavy In sympathy with corn.
Provisions closed unchanged to 2c lower
a steady but dull market. Packers
-bought moderately from local traders.
The western hog run for the week was
480,300 head, as against 544,000 the previous
week, and 70s,ti0o a year ago.

The general movement was narrow.
Further shifting of loans from otit-f-town
banks to local Institutions, which
was chiefly responsible for the Increase
of more than jw.coo.ono In loans last week,
was reflected In today's bank statement.
The actual table showed a loan Increase
of J33,(W.U0O Tho cash gain of J16.0H0.'J"
was lu line with expectation.
Although satisfactory gains In business
over the corresponding period of lost ye.r
were reported by the mercantile agencle.
It was noted that the coming revision of
the tariff was responsible for a feeling
of conservatism. large sales of ruppei
were reported today and it was said that
the cut in the price of the metnt had
stimulated the market, at least tem
porarily. Engagement of a small amount of gold
