and Spring Wheat is Fast Losing Ground
A big, broad, active market has characterized the price movement of Wheat for more than a week. Values are materially higher and underlying condition; are unusually strong.
We. have had reports of damage by 'hail, and advices being received almost daily indicate that the situation throughout the Northwest is extremely critical.
Extensive moisture has caused stunted and backward growth and many of the samples received are not only very small, but of very poor color. All previous estimates of a bumper crop in the Spring Wheat section are
shattered, and every rift of sunshine is followed by more soaking rains than before.
That Mack lJust exists in many of the Wheat fields of the Northwest is unquestionably true, and to properly mature the plant we must have very soon the sunshine and warmth that has been lacking so far. Everybody is
familiar with Mark Kust, in so far as it affected the Spring Wheat crop last year, and the fear that a recurrence of this dreadful scourge (and it is a disease) will largely reduce the previously estimated enormous yield for that
section, is largely responsible for the present strength in the spei ulative markets.
Professor Ho) ley of the North Dakota Agricultural Department says that in the sections visited by heavy rains the rust spores have been washed to the ground to some extent; but at that, the infection is already there and
with clear weather, is liable to spread further.
We do not believe in taking alarm unneeessarily, and have been conservative all along against damage reports, because there was a chance for the crop to recover with improvement in the weather, but any one can see at
this late date, with the Wheat so backward, Red Rust very general, and a weather outlook still uncertain, it is time to abandon all prcious hopes of a big yield and consider rather if the Northwest is going to produce even
a satisfactory crop or not.
Wheat, on a commercial basis, should not be worth less than present prices even with a good crop, and with a poor crop there is no telling how high the price will be a little later on. Field glasses and experts are not
necessary to reveal the situation as it now exists, and any observing man can see it.
A year ago we were the first brokerage firm to sound the note of warning that was followed by such disastrous results to the Wheat crop, and our extensive private wire system reaching every important Wheat section of
the Northwest has enabled us to compile the following reports that tell a story of crop deterioration that, should the threshing returns verify them, must result in enormous hisses.
Willmar, Minn. This section is almost like a lake. A few more days
of rain will result in very serious damage.
Appleton, Minn. Only Wheat that is any good in this section is Mac
aroni. (Iround soaked and farmers very blue.
Granite Tails, Minn. Plenty of Red Rust and some Black Rust. On
close inspection situation is very discouraging.
Hector. Minn. Fields soaked with water and Wheat is four weeks be
hind. Fields are choked with weeds and mustard. Prospects very poor.
Grand Forks, N. D. Hundreds of acres of Wheat in this territory
destroy ed by hail. '
Marshall, Minn. Severe hailstorm of last week destroyed several hun
dred acres of Wheat.
Montevideo, Minn. Red Rust and some RIack Rust discovered here.
Watson, Minn. Have had too much rain in this section and Wheat
turning yellow. Farmers discouraged and situation very critical. General
run far below average at this time of year. Grain on low lands very spot
ted, much of it under water; some drowned out entirely. Yield in this terri
tory will not exceed ten bushels per acre.
Redwood Falls, Minn. Advices from Sundown. Willow Lake,
Three Lakes and Charlestown Townships state that several thousand
acres completely wiped out by hail.
Sioux Falls, S. D. There has been an over abundance of moisture
in this section. Conditions on high ground favorable, but farmers west
of here say crop will probably be nearly a total loss.
Aberdeen, S. D. Reports from southern part of state indicate
damage from excessive moisture.
Neche, N. D. The crop is late, and fields in this vicinity cannot
stand very much more rain. Low lands suffered most. Must have good
weather from now on.
Ortonville, Minn. Prop one to two weeks late; some damage on
low lands. Fields thoroughly soaked, ground soggy and cold.
St. James, Minn. Rust prevails throughout this section and pros
pect for Wheat extremely poor.
Milan, Minn. Some Mack Rust in this vicinity, and unless wanner
weather arrives soon crop will be a failure.
Yankton, S. D. Rust threatens big damage to crop in this section.
Winnebago City, Minn. Too much moisture. Fanners all complain
ing of Red Rust and rank growth; say must have good weather at once to
insure any kind of yield.
Lake Crystal, Minn. Fields full of Red Rust, and if heavy. rains con
tinue yield may not exceed ten bushels per acre.
Osakis, Minn. Farmers complaining of too rapid growth and too wet
on low ground; some Ded Rust. Raining hard now.
Itismark, N. D. Late reports indicate some Mack Rust, and Rod Rust
is very general.
M-andon, Manitoba Red Rust is general in this section and have had
entirely too much moisture.
Royd, Minn. Hundreds of acres under water. Situation critical.
Sheldon, Iowa. There are reports of lodging from excessive rains. Sun
shine needed.
Echo, Minn. Crops of six or eigh t farmers in southern portion of this
township completely destroyed by hail.
Thief River Fails. Minn. Fields wet and weedy; prospects very poor.
Parker, S. D. Wheat damaged to some extent by Red Rust. Acreage
in this locality very light.
Our reports from nearly every section of the entire Northwest are to the effect that there is lots of Red Rust and some Black Rust; that the crop is just at the point where any more rain will practically destroy the present prospects.
A special report from Crop Expert Jones says that even should the right kind of weather prevail from now on. the yield of Wheat for the three leading Wheat states will not exceed 160,000,000 bushels. These states raised i
1904: 153,792,784 bushels; and in 1903: 173,146,171 bushels. This indicates a condition but little better than that of a year ago at a time fully six weeks later than this.

Veiper Boat Club Beats the Cambridge
Crew at Henley.
Veiptr end Utsder Crewo Will Row
for the Grand Challenge
Coach Demsejr la Con.
HENLEY, England, July 4. The crew of
the Vesper Boat club of Philadelphia cele
brated Independence day In England by
winning lta heat against the beat uni
versity crew competing at Henley this
year and by making the best time of
any eight. Indeed, all Henley seemed to
be celebrating the Fourth of July. Ameri
can flags were flying all over the pretty
Thames-side town, and as the American
boat swept on tn victory the Stars and
Stripes were waved from all parts of the
grand stand. The shores were filled with a
record gathering of Britishers and Ameri
can, visitors.
Rap for Grand Challenge Cnp.
The great contest between the Vespers
and the Ieanders tomorrow unquestionably
will be the most Interesting event from the
International as well as the oarsman's
view, ever known In lienley. The most
expert critics of rowing differ In their
opinions and the Englishmen hold that
the American style cannot prevail over
that of I-eander on the ground that the
Americans use a sculling style and fail
to put In body weight. In today's results,
however, when the Club Natlque of Bel
glum beat the Thames Rowing club by
using much the same style with short
oars, the blades of which are somewhat
aimllar to those of the Americans, the
theories of the rowing sharps were upset
and consequently tonight there is much
guessing over tomorrow's struggle, which
unquestionably will decide who will be the
winner of the grand challenge cup. though
the successful crew will row against the
Club Natlque.
Coach Dcmpsey of the Vespers said to
the Associated Press:
"I believe the American style to be
much better than the British."
His belief Is strengthened by observa
tion of today's racing. Mr. Pempsey Is
confident of success and said that none
of the men was the worse for today's
Blar Event of the Par.
Outside the grand-challenge cup, In which
the Vespers of Philadelphia, Pa., and the
Belgian crew mere competing, there was
little of interest In the regatta. The rac
ing started with the first heat of the grand
challenge cup. In which the 'zanders, on
whom the British pin all their hopes of re
taining the trophy In England, won prac
tically as they liked from Jesus college,
Cambridge. The Belgians won an easy
Victory over the Thames Rowing club.
Then came the big event of the day. the
heat for the grand challenge cup. In which
the Americans led all the way and de
feated a strong Cambridge collegiate crew.
AH anticipations regarding today's heats
for the grand challenge cup were thus ful
filled, except that Christ college gave the
Vespers a harder row than expected. A
slight wind toward the Bucks shore gave
the Americans, who hud I lie lierki side, a
alight advantage. The Vespers got well
away, led almost Immediately and at the
quarter distance were more than a length
la front. wlu at the half way ost the
Americana were leading by two lengths.
At i ho I point iiir Cambridge nwn nui'lr a
splendid spurt and steadily overhauled the
Pniladvlphtan until mere only a
length Ixjtwcen the bona The V'i-r
stroke quickened, the erew gamely re
g'juuacd 4id tea Americans completed a
punishing finish with the advantage of a
full boat's length In the best time of the
three heats. Both crews showed the ef
fects of the sharp struggle.
The Americans started with a slower
stroke than either of the winners of the
previous heats. Leanuer got off at forty
one and the Belgians at forty-six, while
the Vespers struck- forty to .he minute.
The Phlladelphtans appeared to bo working
hard from the outset, so that when half
the distance had been reached the Cain
bridge crew were more easily able to pick
up with their quicker stroke.
Oreat enthusiasm was manifested on the
crowded banks of the river throughout tho
entire race and both crews were warmly
The first heats were decided as follows:
I,eander beat Jesus college, Cambridge,
by a length and three-quarters. Time:
The Belgian crew beat the Thames Bow
ing club easily. Time: 7:1S.
The Vespers beat Christ college, Cam
bridge, by a length. Time: 7:12.

Control Is Easier and

LONDON, July 4 In view of the present
hostile attitude of the public toward motor

and horse drawn vehicles. The conditions
were, If anything, in favor of the latter,
since tho sodden travel of the terrace gave
a good grip to the hoofs of the horses,
while It slightly i educed the adhesion of
the wheels of tho motor curs. Trials were
carried out with vurlous types of both
forms of locomotion, the motor cars being
driven at the sauie speed as the horse
drawn vehicles, the drivers pulling up aa
best they could at the fall of the flag at
a point not previously known to them.

motor car could be stopped in one-thlrl
the distance required by the horse. At
Andnver lately one of the justices had
stated that a car passing a certain spot
at ten miles an hour was dangerous to
the public. It would be only logical to ask
him if In passing the same spot In his own
carriage he slowed down to about three
miles an hour, for otherwise, on the rela
tive power of control shown by the tests,
he must be driving to the danger of the
public himself. Mr. Edge looked forward
confidently to the time when there would
be no differentiation between the various
clauses of traffic and no special regulations
for motor cars, but when all would be
governed by the common .sense test of dan
ger to the public with severe penalties for
any driver who offended.

to note that a pair-horse vun traveling at
about eight miles an hour cannot be
stopped Under twenty-four feet. In the
thiid t, at the. driver of tiie car was taken
unawares by the signal, a circumstance
proved by the much better result shown
I In the fourth test at the higher speed. In
the fifth test the driver of the motor car
did not do justice to his brakes. In the
sixih lest the motor car result is doubt-
ful, for, although It is possihlc that under
most favorable circumstances, ths prob
ability Is that the car In Its endeavor not
to outstrip the horse had dropped a little
behind. The results shown In the tenth
and e leventh tests are specially interest
ing and instructive. The ti oiler driven
by Will Bishop of the Coliseum was a
very handy animal and showed surprising
stopping powers. Practically, of course,
it had only itself to stop, for the momentum
of the dilver and the sulky was but slight.
The general Inference is that only trotting
sulkies and motor cars are safe vehicles
to use on the pt reels. A local government
bnaid ofliclal nas present at the t. ms, an l
the lessobs will doubtless hear fruit.
At the conclusion of the trials Mr. Edge
