CHICAGO, July 17. I'nder the stimulus
of a freah hurat of bnHiKhne at Liverpool
snd the untitled conditlnn of the Knro
pesn political situation, the wheat market
here opened strong, Initial quotations on
September heina; up Vf'Vc to .iia at
4iX!"c. From the etRtt there was an active
neral demand. The hleh point on 8eo
temher ws reached at faiSic. A slight re
action occurred Just before the c!e, final
ffjures on Hcptember lieins; at IteVCfBc.
Ciearnncea of wheat and flour were equal
to X.t,2i7 buahele. Primary receipts were
ii9.2n) buxhels, compared with 671. 6- bushels
a year ao. Mlnneapflls, Duluth and Chl
cago reported receipts of 218 cars, against
211 cars laet week snd cars a year bro.
As a reault of the decided strength of
wheat r firm ftelihg prevnlh'd In the corn
pit. Rpptember opened Wn'e higher at
41, -9 lfi'n. sold between 4!VlSe snd fA
and cloeed at 497ac. Local receipts were ITS

mlaaion houses on the strength of wheat.
September opened a e hade hlgker at K')tc,
ranged between SSVifXio and 83Ho and
cloaed at SJaC- Local receipts were 61 cars.
Pending a settlement of the stock yards
strike the provlxlons market was practi
cally lifeless. A smnll. riemnnd from pit
tradera, with only llirht o(Terlnrs, caused a
firm undertone. September pork and ribs
wereech up ifHo at thi clnse, final flfrures
being $12.85 and S7.R'c7.2'4, respectively.

NEW YOB K, July 27. There was further
speculstlve liquidation of stocks today snd
tne bears pounded stocks Increasingly.
Te!r raids on stocks were covering of los
orders. It waa thua demonstrated that
large speculative holrtlnra are In a vulner
able poaltlon end capable of being dis
lodged by declining prices. The sentimental
eflect of tne decline was In Itself strong
Snd the eagernees profeaaed amongat a
certain claaa of (peculators to buy storks
at any fraction from the recent high level
did not hold out In the face of the falling
prices. The action of United States Steel
preferred was watched with special Interest
and its leadership of the decline was a
material factor In deriding the tone of the
market. The first 6i0 shares sold above
last night's prices, but an Immediate de
cline followed and was unrelieved.
A good deal of attention was given to the
possibility cf en Issue being rald be
tween the United States and the Ruselan
government If the Vladivostok snuadrons
encounter any ships in the pacific under
the American flag. Reports of setbacks to
crops gained currency. The few reports of
groas earnings of railroads for the third
week of July pointed to a poor svernsie.
Rumors of a rupture in the anthracite
concllllntion board snd resulting strikes
had a keener effect by unrest In other de
partments of labor. Kncouragcnient at the
inability of the market to withstand the
seillr.5 arid another pes'imistio view of the
Iron ade by the Iron Trade led to another
Bonds were easy. Total sales, par value,

CATTLE The situation -remains un

The supply of cows and heifers was lim

There is no demand for canning grades and

HOGS Forty odd loads, or around 2,800
head, were received this morning, while
there, was sufficient demand from, both
packers and shippers to take care of the
day's arrivals, packers took hold more
freely than at any time since the renewal
of the strike. .
At the start the outlook was rather un
promising and trading at the start was any
where from pretty close to steady to as
much aa a nickel lower, and early trading
was along those lines, Later reports from
Chicago coupled with a fair demand here
helped out the market and trading fol
lowed at pretty cloee to steady prices on
desirable kinds and the market became
fa ly brisk at the prices.
Armour was a pretty free buyer, all
things considered, and Swift was also on
the market for a few loads. Shippers took
on the remainder and a clearance was made
in good season, the market holding up well
The situation la decidedly unsatisfactory
as yet and the demand Is rather uncertain,
although as far aa the trade today was con

Sales today ranged from la to $3.25, or
practically in the same notches as yester
day, while the bulk compares quite favor-
