Features of the Trading and (losing;
Prices on Board of Trade.
CHICAGO. Aug. 1-Clear weather north
west made prices continuously weak In
the wheat market here today. At the
close the September option was off UWVc.
Corn Is down 'un. oats show a loss of
Ssr. Provisions are 5o lower.
The wheat market was under continuous
selling pressure throughout the entire ses
sion. At the opening September option
was a shad'! lower to a shade higher, nt
fi.r. M a to 85',c. A holiday at Liverpool turned
first attention to the wheat fields of Minne
sota and the Dakotas Weather in the
northwest was ideal for the ripening of
wheat In the northern sections. There was
an absence of reports claiming damage by
rust. Extreme weakness at Minneapolis
was taken here as Indicating that there
had been at least a temporary collapse of
the blight scare. As a result of the con
ditions named prices here gradually crum
bled. An official forecast for fair weather
tomorrow for the northwest added learlsh
sentiment. About the only encouragement
from the bulls came from decreased re
ceipts southwest. Small holders and pit
traders were the principal Bellers. Offer
ings were taken by commission houses.
From the street prices steadily declined,
the market closing weak at the lowest
point of the day. Final quotations on Sep
tember were nt 3T4c. Clearances of wheat
and flour were equal to 31.5O0 bushels. Pri
mary receipts were 912. bushels, com
pared with M3.2nu bushels a year bko. Min
neapolis, Duluth and Chicago reported re
ceipts of 40ji cars, against 567 cars last week
and i'xl cars a year ago
Kxcellent prospect f B humper crop
caused weakness in the corn market. Lib
eral acceptances and weakness of cash rorn
contributed to the slump In option prices.
The market closed at practically the lowest
September opened mf10 to H5
lower, at 53V''Vc to 53SC sold off to
52Mii.te, and closed at 53o. Local receipts
were ISO cars, witn 20 of contract grade.
Oats were weak on prospects of a large
gain In local stocks. Cash houses were the
principal sellers, although there was con
siderable protit taking. Weakness of other
grain had a depressing effect. Peptember
os'iied Ho lower at 27yc. sold down to
au;c and closed at 2b7ifo27c. Local receipts
were 313 cars.
Provisions were a trifle easier on profit
taking by small holders, not withstanding
a small advance In the price of live, hogs
Weakness of grain was a bearish influence.
At the close September pork was off Bo at
$1.1.57',. Lord und ribs also were down 5o,
closing nt I7.4TH and 12H. respectively.
Estimated receipts for Monday: w neav.
2f'5 cars; coin, itti cars; oats, 4a2 cars.

CATTLE There were only seven cars of
cattle received today and of these six
were consigned dlreco to a packer, leaving
only one car on sale, not enough to make a
test of the market.
Beef steers for the week are Just about
steady with the close of last week. There
has been little change In prices all the
week and the market has held ud In good
shape. The choicer grades are stronger
and In some cases prices look higher. There
nas oeen a good Btrong demand tor sup
plies all the week, packers being free buy
ers. The western cattle are beginning to
come In pretty freely now and are selling
well. Receipts this week have been light,
giving salesmen an advantage. The short
fed and half-fat cattle have been some
thing of a drag on the market all the week
and slow sale, but salesmen have man
aged to hold prices Just about steady.
She stuff has been In good demand all
the week and activity was a feature nearly
every day. The supply of cows and heifers
has been rather small and with a good call
from all sources prices have flowed steadily
upward right along. The advance noted Is
fully a quarter, except on the commoner
grades, which could not be quoted that
much higher. Canners were alow sale and
are only steady.
Bulla and stags are a shade higher for
the week, ith a fair demand, while veal
calves are Just about steady.
There has been a good call for stockers
and feeders both from yard traders and
country buyers, and sellers have had little
difficulty In finding a buyer for their hold
ings. Prices have been stronger and on
some of the good kinds higher.
HOGS There waa a light run here even
for a Saturday, only about sixty-two loads
being offered. With these light receipts
sellers had the advantage and prices were
higher. Salesmen early were holding their
hos at pretty stiff prices, more than buyers
wunted to pay, and as a result trading was
slow and dull and very little was done till
about the middle of the forenoon. After
buyers and sellers got together, however,
the stuff was picked up pretty briskly and
a clearance was made In good season.
Prices today reached the high point of the
year and the top price was the highest paid
since last September. The bulk of the hogs
sold at $5.72416.774, with tops reaching
$5. 85. The market was generally 6'.)loc
higher than yesterday. Representative

SHEEP There were only four cars here
today and they were all consigned direct
to a packer, leaving only one or two small
bunches on sale. The market for the week
Is In very satisfactory condition and prices
on the close show a big advance. The de
mand for both killers and feeders has been
very good, and although thero has been a
good deal of slowness to the trado, due to
the fact that the sheep had to be sorted
closely, the market has been In good shape.
The western run Is now fairly started and
big receipts may be looked for from now
on. Old sheep for the week show nn ad
vance of b7jT5c. while an advanre of Xc
Is noted on yearlings. Lambs were In the
be3t demand ail the week and are up 2oU
The feeder supply has not been up to the
requirements of the trade and competition
on these kinds was keen and prices fur
the week have advanced loi.il5c.

CHICAGO, Aug. 6 Financial writers who
have seen fit to decry present conditions
existing In the stock and money markets
are not entirely Justified In the positions
which they have t;ikcn. Statistics of fail
ures last month, and so far this year, may
naturally be Interpreted as in Heating a
stable and sound Industrial condition. As
a matter of absolute fact, not only are the
number of failures In July the smallest
of any month since August. 19.W. but they
are also the smallest of anv In J'lly -l iring
twelve years. July failures really number
04. as against 771 of last vear.
It must be stated, however, that the
showing on liabilities has not been so
good a total of $10,5o3,000, as against 35ii,
e) a year ago. For the seven months of
the present year the failures have num
bered $5,942, as against $6,118 of last ynr.
Inabilities for the same period have born
$71. 131, urn, ns against $91,440,on0 In the same
p 1 lod In HM.
Generally speaking, the reported earn in us
of transportation Industries Indlcnt" un
usual prosperity. The most protrn snt was

United States Steel corporation and who
sold most of their common stock ehove 50
and again took It In at 10, are no-v holding
large lines or the Issue.
What they expect to do with It Is a
difficult thing to understand. Recently
there has been considerable talk about
restoring the stock to a dividend basis.
Bome prominent operators hold that the
common stock will not yield another divi
dend until the company has accumulated
a surplus of at least $:$'). ooo.noo others
arc or the opinion that an over-plus of
over $100,000,000 will be sufficient to Induce
J. P. Morgan to put the stock hack on a
4 per cnt basis. It Is noted that from
a point of view of actual surplus profits
the neglect of adequate outlay for depre
ciation during last year's lien earnings
had mn.le necessary an abnormally large
appropriation of the sort In the last quarter.-
The upshot of this prudent policy la
that the surplus over all charges and ap
propriations during the quarter ending
with June was but slightly larger than In
the same period a year ago, although the
earnings grew enormously. When com
pared with the second quarter of 19"3, tho
present surplus balance Is reduced $12,0oo.
000, even though two years ago tho divi
dends on steel were being paid. in n
great many ways the steel corporation Is
stronger than it was two years ago, but
the surplus fund has fnllon almost i'3,
OOD.nooO since that time, and Is recovering
very slowly. The talk which comes from
Pittsburg with relation to tho formation
of a competitive company to be headed by

There was a time, a few years ago, when
anything that looked like a stock cer
tlticate sold very readily to the public.
The preferred system was then Inaugurated
nnd the legal preference given this class
of securities found great favor through
out the country. Subsequently the Invest
ing public learned neither one nor the
other was as good as It looked. The coun
try Investor became careful his experience
bcann to tell. When clever promoters
found that the sentiment of the country
was changing and that the preference of
the Investors seemed to favor bond Issues,
no tlmo was lost to devise a system
wherebv bonds might be sold very freely,
wlille the corporation assumed little or no
Today the Investing public Is buying these
bonds as freely and with as much careless
ness as It did the green and gold stock
certificates of ten years ago. Bonds such
ns "debentures." which pay Interest when
the Interest Is earned; -collateral trusts."
which nre a kind of lien on the corpora
tion s securities, but not on the railroad
property itself; "convertibles." which are
merely an option on tiie shares at a stip
ulated figure, nnd "Incomes," which are
essentially no different from the shares
themselves: all of these are examples of
our present day high finance. None of
these are first or second mortgnges. Most
people who buy bonds of tills character
believe they are all first mortgages.
Investment that Pay.
Among the smaller organizations sueh
conditions do not prevail. Private greed
and cllossal ambitions have not yet taken
root. There nre several manufacturing
oni-poratlons In Chicago nnd other cities
whoso securities have been closely Investi
gated, and whose management has re
mained honest and sincere even In this
age of trickery and deceit. A very rare
opportunity exists In this direction for
making good Investments. 1 am of the
firm belief that the sentiment of the en
tire country Is about to change, and that
smaller, but honest and meritorious, busi
ness enterprises, which have not been re
ceiving their share of public: financial sup
port, are going to benefit by existing con
ditions among the htige combinations which
have been so largely over capitalised that
little or no opportunity presents Itself for
betterment until they am gone through
the throes of honest reorganization.
After carefully observing the tendency of
the Investing public, it becomes apparent
that much of the country's money, which
formerly went Into listed securities, Is
being devoted to the smaller and less
gigantic enterprises. In other words, thef
trickeries and high finance methods of
some of our Wall street giants have re
sulted In awakening the country Investor
to the existing conditions.
As a matter of fact, there Is as much
safety and greater honesty to be found
among the smaller corporations, which are
doing a straightforward, clean, legitimate
business, free from the greed nnd avarice
of the big promoters. I have looked into
the affairs of several of these companies
and I was agreeably surprised by the com
parative cleanness of tho business methods
find by the high standard of commercial
ethics employed. It Is to be hoped that
these Institutions will receive the sup
port of the puhllc which their merit and
commercial Integrity deserves.

SUIT FOR VAST ESTATE
lawyer Will Push
IV ew York.
'NEW YORK, Aug. 6-Joseph T. Cowan
of Dallas, Tex., dropped In on New York
yesterday for the purpose of putting into
motion a claim made some time ago by
several heirs o' thj late Andrew Hartstlell
for a large panel of valuable real estate.
It la declared by these ersons HarUfl-)M
owned all that section of the city lying
west of Fifth avenue, between Seventy-tif tr
anil One Hundred and Twenty-fifth streets,
Iart of Which Is now Central park.
This tract, embracing 16o acres, Is worth
much more than $4t),UiO,ooitl says Mr.
Cowan, who appraises It at more th all
n.OKi.OuO.Coo, but is willing to settle on a,
reasonable cash basis, It Is said, with the
present r.puled owners.
The Huilstield, or Hatfield, claim Is not
a new one, but the heirs have now got to
gtther, and, according to Mr. Cowan, pro
pose to take active steps toward asserting
their rights. Cowan first came lo Nnv
York latit November and placed the claim
before the controller and the city cham
ber lit In.
Win 11 his claim was questioned the law
ycr said he would go to the register's olMca
and procure tho volume of the record
wherein It Is recorded the lease to the city
of Andrew 1 lartsficld's 160 acres for ninety
nine ycats and a day, beginning with the
year 171)5. Mr. Cowan did riot find the rec
ord. He now asserts that a certain Indi
vidual, w IjO Is known to him, surreptltu
oiibly purloin, d one of the recotd books
containing a cop) of the lease. It Is nor
his Intention lo apply to the courts to
compel the custodian of the record to
pruduoe It in court.
