In producing and distributing channela, as in banking circles, caution continues general and many Interests are still waiting, but there Is no lack of the confidence whloh Is essential to the economic welfare of the nation. That activity has abated In some branches In snd aout all aectlone Is not sur prising In view of the unexampled rise In prices and limits to which the buying move ment was previously carried,' and nearly everywhere commitments for the far future are undertaken with prudence, With more open weather less is heard of delays In transportation and the adjustment of the railway labor controversy has removed an unsettling and retarding element.' iilfiir ulty In obtaining raw materials has not been eliminated, however, and manufacturing operations remain hindered with the short age of skilled hands, an added drawback.

Sham advances In the value of wheat today resulted largely from reports of sever crop damage In Ne braska and Kansas. The market closed strong, 10 to 44c net hig'ier. with Mky at 21.90 to $1.90 and July at 11.60 to fl.40. Corn .finished 3o to So up and oats gained 14a to lo. In provi sions the outcome varied from the same as yesterday' wlndup to 16o higher. Although further destruction of American shipping and- lives were responsible for con siderable oc the strength that developed In the wheat market, the upturns In prices came chiefly after traders had been alven attention to the crop damage advices which nooded in from many different sources. In dication! pointed to a decided lowering of .condition In the winter belt aa a whole, but especially throughout important sections of Nebraska and Kansas, where big tosses by winter killing were said to be evident. Ac cording to one authority, 35 to It per cent of the wheat was dead In Reno and Paw nee counties, two of the Isrgest wheat countlea In Kansas. Some places In north ern Kansas went even further and said all of the autumn sown wheat was lifeless. Notably broadening out of the volume of trad In wheat took place aa the session continued and some of the heaviest of speculative short were forced to cover In the last hour. Country buying orders In particular In creased and were alone more than offset by the bearish Influence of rains that had fallen aver part of the winter wheat re- glon. At the top price of the day. May delivery was wllhln to of the highest level rearnea mis season. Corn as well aa wheat ehnwed unusual activity and ascended to a new high price record for the 1010 crop.
