Irregular, tha (September product being
from HVic lower to 60 higher.
There waa a big trade in wheat through
out tha entire eesnlon and the Arm feel
ing, which prevailed from the atart, be
came decidedly strong toward the close,
the final figure being at about the beat
price of the day. The opening waa firm on
atrong European cablea and a continued
light movement, Reptember being Vie to
fcc higher at SO&oHe. During the early
part of the session tlie general aentlment
waa bullish and the selling had a ten
dency to check the upward trend of prices.
After aelllng off to tOAc. Beotember be.
ban to advance gradually, and toward the
latter part of the session the market turned
xtremely strong on good advances In the
northwest markets, due to advance in the
price of flour at Minneapolis. Coupled with
the strong outside markets was a better
export demand at tha seaboard, both of
which features started shorts covering
resulting in a strong close. After selling
up to &!c, September closed lbrgla higher
at 81c. Clearances of wheat and Hour
were eauM to 316. 800 bushels. Primary re
oetpta were 604,6o0 bushels, against 014.200
bushels a year ago. Minneapolis and Du
luth reported receipts of 963 cars, which
with local receipts of 89 cars 23 of con
tract grade made total receipts for the
three polnta of IKS cars, against 208 cars
last week and 429 cars a year aao.
The opening In corn was firm on a good
scattered demand, due to higher cablea
and to tha bull sentiment of yesterday
but the weather In the west was reporter
mora favorable for tha growing crop and
the early firmness waa aoon dissipated by
soiling by several commission houses. The
market held rather quiet until the close
when strength In wheat caused a alight
rally. After ranging between BISc and
I3c, September closed a shade higher at
62Vu53o. Local receipts were 110 cars, with
only 10 of contract grade.
Oats moved In sympathy with the lead
ing gralna, although the market had some
independent firmness based on reports of
disappointing threshing returns and light
receipts. Trading was only moderate and
the market exhibited no special iear.ures,
The close was firm, September being up
Vi'a'io at 83Hi)'33Vic, after selling between
' 34vn and 36 Wc. Local receipts were 114
provisions held fnlrly steady In spite of
dull trade and liberal receipts oi nogs,
with a decline of 6510o In prices at tha
vnrds. Packers sold pork and there was
some loss shown In that product. The
poor demand for cash and Increasing stocks
of lard according to private estimates was
a bear factor. September pork closed 2Vio
lower at7 $13.25. September lard was bo
blrher at 88.06. Ribs were up 2a at 87.86
Estimated receipts for tomorrow: Wheat.

ins; Movement. , ,
NEW TORK. Aug. 13 The recuperative
forces In the stock market gathered re
sources today, with the result of a buoy
ant uprise In prices on an animated Pity
ing movement. The rate of activity dur
ing the forenoon session promised the larg
est dav's business for the current jenr.
The market afterwards showed some signs
of weariness at the rate of the movement.
The recovery was the result of a series of
Incidents rather than any one development.
Reaction from the recently prevailing ex
treme depression was an Important factor.
J he mere sentimental eneci oi ine recov
ery afler the gloom and apprenenaion tnai
nave prevailed so long in vtau street win
considerable. Immerse relief from the
constant effort of forced liquidation or
bankruptcy, which it Is not fair to assume
has been hanging over some houses,
naturally predisposed the whole nnanelal
community to take a more cheerful view
Of prospects. Where ertorts tor a long
time past to market securities with al
most no demsnd. has substituted a large
and urgent demand for stocks and bonds
of all grades today. The urgency of some
of the buying and the violent advances In
prices showed clearly enougti tnat enoris
by distressed shorts to cover their con
tracts before the rebound carried prloes
beyond their reach were an Important ele
ment In the market. Bidding up oi prices
by opposing professionals to force higher
prices out of the bears was another palpa
ble Influence. But It was evident beyond
this that there was a large and substan
tial buying element In the market which
was taking over stocks of all classes with
freedom and contlder.ce. It is presumed
that buyers have so suddenly changed their
opinion of the financial and business out
look. But the conviction has been growing
that the big decline in prices has been
mora than sufficient to offset the unfavor
able factors In the situation and that the
necessities of the money situation nave
been enforcing securities below their true
values. The event proves tha contention
of those who have maintained that there
was a large waiting demand for stocks
which would come Into the market freely
when the liquidation seemed to be con
cluded and prices definitely turned up
wards. Ths taking over of the Seaboard
Air Line. In the Rock Island Interest had
stimulating effect on the speculative im
agination. It furnished proof that not all
the large Interests were hard pressed to
hold their undigested aeciirltlss and-that
the securities In some quarters might prove
the opportunity in others tor extending
Influence and consolidating control. Rock
Island itself, as well as Southern Railway.
Illinois Central anfl Ijoulsvllle & Nashville
all shared In the day's strength, reflecting
the impression that the new arrangement
tends to community of Interest In the
southern railroad field. A number of stocks
of minor railroads, supposedly available
for absorption bv more powerful members.
were strong. The feature of the day was
Reading. Its sensational rise of b gave
rise to many rumors regarding new projects
for division of control and guarantee oi
A very favorable showing of July net
earnings Is expected for the road, as well
as for other coalers. Baltimore & Ohio's
Increase In July, net, of $311,626, thus con
serving nearly half the gross increase,
helped the soft coal group. ' The United
States Steel stocks did not share fully in
the day's strength, although they were
bought on a large scale. The conference
of members of the safe committee with the
riresident gave rise to resumptions regard
ng the scope of plans for financial legisla
tion, which were used with- effect to fur
ther the advancing tendency of prices. The
buying movement showed some signs of ex
haustion at. the last and the market closed
Irregular and below the best.
Bonds were strong. Total - sales; par
value, $4,345,000. United State bonds were
unchanged on call. .

NEW YORK, Aug. 13. COTTON Market
opened steady at unchanged prices, to a
decline of 3 points on all except the March
option, which was 1 point up. The declines
were In sympathy with lower Liverpool
oablcs, which encouraged realtxing and
perhaps some small sales for short ac
count, but there was little business of any
description, and shortly after the start
moderate support from the clique Impart
ed a firmer tone to the market, while sell
ers were rendered cautious by renewed
apprehensions as to the tropical storm
which was again reported to be headed
toward the gulf states. . A sagging tenden
cy struck the market, which remained the
balance of the session. The close was
practically at the low point, with August
showing the greatest loss.

CATTLE There waa an extremely light
run of cattle here today for a Thursday, but
lor tne ween to aate tne receipts snow a
sllrht Increase, aa co-r. pared with last week.
but as compared with tne same days of last
year there Is a decrease of about 1,700 head.
owing to tne iignt receipts touay salesmen
were able to get a little more for their
cattle than they received yesterday.
There were several loads of cornfed steers
In the yards this morning and aa packers
all wanted a few trading was quite active
and the prices paid were generally a dime
higher. The market, though, was rather
uneven, so that some salea looked better
than others. On the average, however, the
market could safely be quoted 10c higher
than yesterday s areneral market.
The cow market was also a little better
than yesterday. The prices paid, though.
enowea more unevenness man was noticea
with steers. In the majority of cases the
advance would be covered by 610c. galea,
men all took hold quite freely and as sup-
piles were very limited the market soon
came to a close.
Bulls, veal calves and stags could be
quoted strong In sympathy with the Im
provement on steers and cows.
A large proportion of the receipts this
morning consisted of stock cattle, but the
maricei nem rdoui sreaay. 1 ne aemana
from the country yesterday was only fair
ana as a result mere were sun quits a
good many cattle in the hands of snecu
lfltors this morning. Anv thine at all de
sirable, though, waa disposed of by commis
sion men at about steady prices.
There were a few western cattle In the
yards, but not many of them were good
enough for beef. As a result a fair test of
the market waa not made, but It would be
safe to quote good stuff strong to a dims
higher. Range cows aiso advanced 6cgioc,
while the stock cattle sold In about the
same notches they did yesterday. Renre.

HOOS There waa rather a llarht run of
hne-s here this morning, but a bis plumn In
Chicsgo was reported, and as a result prices
eauea on ners a uttie. iieavy nogs opened
close to a dime lower, while lightweights
did not sell more then a nickel lower. As
the morning advanced trading became more
active ana Drlcee nrmrrt un a lift e. so that
the general market could nnt be quoted over

Heavy packing gradea sold down as low as
$5.06 and $5 074, Good heavy hors. how

choice medium weights going from $116 to
$5 20 and llrnts selllrur from 15 9) to 15.82V..
Peveral trains were late In arriving and
that fact delayed the market to some i
