Prlcea on Board of Trade.
CHICAOO, Aug. 12. Semi-official dnlal
of serious damage to the Husstan wheat
crop caused weakness In the wheat market
heir today. Clear weather In the 1'nited
Hiates emphasiz'd the dejiresshnu. At tiie
lose the September option was down l1!
MVe. Corn la oft Oats show a loss of
Provisions were practically unchanged.
The fient market was weak from the
start. W ith no news of a 1 bara ter to In
spire active demand, prices gradually
sag Red. At the opening, the September
option was off to Sc at 82n to HiKc.
I'll traders and commission houaea were
liberal lli-ra. Tiie main reason for the
silling was a cablegram from an Knglish
crop statistician staling that according
to a a.itil-ofncial report the condition of
the Kussian winter wheat crop Is generally
above the average. The domestic situa
tion wae ronMilered favorable to the bears,
the majority of reports from the north
west giving glowlag accounts of the con
dition for hte n"W crip. In September
tie lowest point of the day was reached at
K1V'. Ijfltcr in the session i)rlc' rallied
on covering bv aborts, but the close
whs weak with September at lVtf
MV. Clearances of wheat and flour
Were eiiual to 14'.v10 bushels. Primary re
ceipts were 776,10 bushels conpared with
KK.tO bushels a year ago. Sllnneapolls,
1 nil nt ti nnd Chicago repiorted receipts of
?' cars against J" car lat weem and
-IT i-ars a year ago.
An ofilcial forecast of sho-ers through
out the middle west was the cause of per
sistent selling of corn. A a result the
market was weak the entire si sslon. Com
mission houses sold Iiecemlwr nnd May
nnd cash Interests aold Reptcmbor. The
break in wheat was an additional weaken
ing inlluenee. The market cosed weak
with prices at the lowest point of the day.
September opened unchanged to 1-c lower
at r4 1 to M-'iic; sold off to c?,Sc nnd closed
at the bottom. Local receipt:! were 'Ml
cars with of contract grade.
Hearish sentiment predominated In the
oats pit. The principal weakening factors
we c "1 ?al receipts anil lower prices for
the other grain. Cash houses were the
el.lef sellers. The market closed at about
the lowest point. September opened un
changed to V'le lower at 2Mi to '.'fiV'i 2ti
sold 01T to 'M nnd closed at 2'a Iti'ac. Local
receipts were 4:"iU cars.
Provisions were a trifle easier In sympathy
with grain. The volume of business was
extremely small. At the close September
pork whs unchanged. I14.27H- I -aril was a
shade lower at S7.7TVi4i7.ttO. Ribs were un
changed at IT.fiTH.

CATTLE The receipts of cattle this week
were liberal the first three days but light
on the last two market daya. They ahow
an Increase of about 278 car as com
pared with last week and are aome 224
cars heavier than the same week last
year. Thev were made up of western and
corn-fed cattle of good quality.
There wer not enough cattle here today
to make a test of the market and there
was very little business done on the hill.
Market conditions have been very satis
factory this week and there is a good
strong feeling to the trade. On Monday the
market opened ateady to strong and there
was very little change In price any day
during the week. The general market is
fully steadv, or. the good kinds closed up
a little better and the common cattle
were a little lower. With the Increased
receipts of western cattle the range of
prices Is widening some. There are sev
eral unusual features noted In the week'
trade that are seldom met with at this
time of the year. It Is not often that so
many good corn-feds are marketed at this
time" as there were last week. Also, the
supplv of western cattle has been light at
a'.i points so far. Here, there have been
very few westerns except sand hlllers.
Cows and heifers for the week are In
the same shape a the steer stuff, gen
erally steady. On Thursday n slight break
was noted on the commoner grades, but It
was regaLned Friday and there Is no
quotable change In prices. The demand
for she stuff waa good all the week and
the choice grades could aafely be called
a little stronger.
nulls, veal calvea and atngs ruled ateady
all the week and have been picked up
readily at the prices.
Stockers and feeders were In good shape
all tho week and there la a good strong
demand for cattle of this class. As with
the steers, the good heavy cattle are
stronger, while llgntisn graues are a snaae
off The market eased off on Friday, but
this was a usual feature of the trade, a
yard buyer do very little at the week a
HOGS Conditions In the hog yard were
better again today. The run was light,
only about seventy-four loads being on
sale, and the demand from all sources
was good. Rough heavy packers were
not Bought after; although they show a
slight advance along with the general
run of the hogs. The market opened
early and there waa considerable activity
to the early trading, although after the
more urgent order had been tilled the
market was a little slow. Prices on the
opening were 6ii1oc higher than yesterday
and a good part of the light weight
changed bands at tne aavanee. After
the nral round prices eased off a little
and the hoga weie disposed of at 6'i7c
advance. The bulk of the hoga old at
$ 9)o.i.OO, with the popular price $.'..95.
Top reached the high figure of the year,
$6 05. The market was in fair condition
all the way through and the big end of the
receipts wa dlsoosed of In good season,
but the close showed part of the advance
