CHICAGO, Aug. 22. Vicious and savage
trading characterised the business on the
board of Trade today. St. luli shorts In
corn and wheat were punished severely.
There waa nothing particularly bullish In
the. early news, but yesterdays exceptional
bulge In corn frightened the corn ahorts
f nd at the opening there wa a wild rush
o cover. After price all around bad been
boosted to figures to ault the big holder,
manipulation made price jump back and
-forth erratically. In the and the shorts
suffered, the local longs secured fancy
'profit for their holding and price closed
weaker. September corn closed unchanged,
December corn c lower. September wheat
'Hilttc down, September oats llHc off and
September provisions suffered lossea of 10c
fit. Ivouls aborts had sent orders for heavy
covering at the opening of corn. Prices
would have gone easily to or more
had It not been that the big longs wen
competing with each other to unload on
the unfortunate outsiders. This willing
ness cn the part of the bulla to sll at
fancy figures, however, did not prevent an
excited and much higher opening. Septem
ber corn started Wo to lc up at 674c. to oc
and with wide fluctuations jumped to 694,0.
Here big quantities came out and soon
l.ouj.oOO bushels or more had been turned
over to the shorts. This broke prices
bwdly and aa soon as It waa thought the
short Interest had been eliminated Septem
ber touched 6tVc. Every bid or sale made
a quick change of from "4C to lc In the
market price. September trading through
out the entire session was sensational.
'Influential houses hsd December for sale,
but the early advances In September sus
stalned the latter month. Conditions that
usually rule the pit were hardly considered.
There Is still a fine prospect of big har
vest, cables were higher and receipts were
till smnll, otherwlHSj the situation was
practically unchanged. Near the close
September rallied and December fell off,
September closing steady and unchanged
at 67c and December Tic down at 42yc.
Kecelpta were only 28 cars, six of contract
Except that the weather map was almost
perfect, moat of the early pews In wheat
favored buyers. Cables were strong on
the reports of frost and dry weather in
Argentina. Receipt were lighter and con
tract grading was very small. Above all,
shorts were frightened both at the advance
In wheat and the tumult In the corn pit.
St. Louis waa heavily short and wanted
over 1,000,000 bushels. The result was an
excited opening, with September Krnc to
Vfllc higher at 71T4C to 72itc. After the
rush of buying orders waa over broker
let go freely, the crowd followed and prices
broke to 7uc. One of the factor waa the
falling off In the cash demand, with Minne
apolis cash premiums off 2 Ho from yester
day's figure. Much of the early heavy sell
ing wa by a prominent elevator concern
that haa had September options congested
for some time. After the whlp-aawlng
procesa had shaken out many of the taller
there was a fair rally. September, how
ever, closed rather wealc, ht'vc down, at
71 Sc. Local receipt were 221 car, only
two of contract grade, and Minneapolis and
Duluth reported 296 cars, making a total
for the three points of 616 cars, against SOS
last week and 711 a year ago. Primary
'receipt were 1,010,000 bushels, against
.1,022.000 tet year. Seaboard clearancea In
wheat and flour were liberal and equaled

Helling ror a leading sun caused weak
ness In oats. . Even the great strength
tarly In wheat and corn had Utile effect
nnd after a little spurt prices fell back.
The motive for the sharp selling by longa
waa said to be the Improving weather west
and northwest, which la expected to result
soon In Improving the grading. Short still
wanted stuff, but when stop loss order
accentuated the decline . trading fell off.
September sold from 84o to 83o and closed
weak, llKc down, at 83c. . Kecelpta ware
178 cars.- . . .
Provision advanced early on a better hog
market and outside buying. Later long
unloaded generally and the liquidation
caused decline in all the list. Even the
unuaual advance of as much as 86c in hog
and a good consumptive demand did not
prevent a weak close. September pork
closed 20c lower at $16.65, September lard
Soo down at 810.77V, and September ribs 10a
off at tl0.C2U. '

last few days. This was caused bv the
liquidation in Colorado Fuel, which it was

stocks elsewhere in the market. The an.
pearance of support In that stock and Its

was an Important factor in reassuring
sentiment and its effect was emphasized

The points of strength In the early day
were somewhat scattered and might be
attributed to special causes. In the late
dealings the strength became more general
and the market broadened out under the
immediate influence of a t-potnt rise in

strength In this stock was not obvious
beyond the fact that the speculative leader

ments of the latter being restricted to
Ths granger. Pacifies and Southwestern
quite generally participated in the late
movement in southern Pacific. The re
action in the wheat market may have
helped this movement.
Yesterday's flurry in September corn,
while without any bearing on the coming
crop, is significant of the very small move
ment of ths tag-end of laat year's crop,
which has been reflected in late returns of
gross earnings of railroads in the corn
The. freedom from flurry in the money
market, with the demand for loans to carry
over until Monday, had a reassuring effect
and aroused hopes that the bank atatement
tomorrow would show a strengthened con-
oition. ir tnis proves to be tne case It
must be by reason of loan contraction by
transfer of credits to the trust companies
and to foreign lenders. The interior cur
rency movement seems still to be slightly
In favor of New York.
The sub-treasury operations which had
yielded to the banks up to Wednesday
evening $1,335,000, took from the banks yes
terday $1,168,000, thus nearly wiping out the
previous balance. The net result promises
a gam in casn tor tne week or less tnan
$500,000. Another transfer was made to
New Orleans today of $130,000 and New
York exchange at Chicago dropped to 20c
discount, after having recovered to par
earlier In the week.
The advancing quotations for govern
ment bonds are believed to be due to the
expectation that the treasury may take
eany steps ror tne reiier or the money
market, cither by Increasing deposits with
the banks or by redemption of bonds.
Bonds were firm in sympathy with stocks.
Total sales, par value, $1,370,000. United

CATTLE There was a big slump today in
cattle receipts, and, in fact, there waa only
about a Saturday's run. This has been
an eventful week, however, for receipts
have been exceedingly heavy for this time
of year and far in excess of the same days
of laat week or of last year. Considering
the large number on sale the market has
held up in very satisfactory manner.
So far as today's market is concerned
there ia not much to be said, for the quality
of the offerings was inferior. Packers
were not at all anxious for what was on
sale, and as a result the market was dull
and weak. '
Corn cattle for the week have not shown
much change where the quality wss strictly
prime. The beat steers may be quoted
steady, but the kinds that sell from $7
down sre lower because they come in com
petition with the westerns.
The cow market held up In good shape
and the best grades sre very little lower.
The medium grades have suffered the most,
but even those have not declined more than
lf15c on the average, and In extreme cases
20c. Prices ruling here have been very
high as compared with other markets, and
In fact the Chicago market haa been In
bad shops the last few days.
Common bulls have been very slow sale
and lower all the week. Good fat bulls
have held about steady, and so also have
good dehorned feeder bulls.
There has been an active demand all the
week for Blockers and feeders of good qual.
lty and the market may be quoted steady.
The common kinds, however, are alow and
Western range steers of good quality
have sold well all the week, But still they
are a little lower. Ths decline, though,
would be covered by 15'g26c. Prime de.
horned western feeders have held steady
but the horned cattle that were lacking In
quality have been a drug on the market
and are a good deal lower. What might be
called fairly good beef cattle that either
packers or feeder buyers would take have
not declined very much, but the medium
grades of killers that feeder buyers did not
want have slumped off in bad shape, and
in some cases sre 60976a lower than they
were a week ago. Representative sales:

HOGS Receipts of hogs rontinued light
today and owing to a higher provision
market and a active demand on the pari
of packers the market opened lofl 15c higher
and soon became close to 15c higher. Ths
big bulk of the sales went st $7.00, with a
sprinkling on up to 3710. The commoner
grades sold below $7.00. At those price
the hogs changed hands quite rapidly, but
all of a sudden packers stopped buying
and claimed they did not care for any
more at tha prices. Sellers were not at
all Inclined to cut loose at any leas thaq
the morning bids and as a result tha closa
wss very slow.
Today's sdvance carries the market bach
to the highest point reached since August
11. Representative sales:
