Continued unfavorable reports from AT
gentlna anil strong Kurnpran markets lent
a bullish tendency to wheat. Armour and
other big dealers wr supporting the mar
ket and got May to 9Sc. Later It dropped
off to a little above yesterday. The situa
tion waa strong at Kansas City. Minne
apolis and HI. LiOum. May closed at &ie.
July at 4So and September at s-ic.
Corn waa strong. May early advanced
So and standing outers to buy at 44c
kept the marat i around that figure. May
clotted at 44V(i44rc and July at 4ti'c.
Oats nere strong, but there was link of
Interest. May closed at U2Sv and July at
clearances were 18.000 bushels of wheat,
to.ontt barrels of flour, 319.HO0 bushels of
corn and 3'i2.u"o bushels ol oats. Primary
wheat receipts were 44.0i0 bushels and
shipments r.4,' bushels, against receipts
last year of Mfi.Oci bushels and shipments
of 2?,uj bushels. Coin tecclpls were ..
O) bushels and shipments 64ti,ij0 bushels,
against receipts last year or dush
eis and shipments of (M.OOn bushels.
Uraiistreet s total wheat increase was
7.Sl.ir0 bushels, corn Increase 1.317,000 bush
els and oats inrrease tsjl.duu bushels.
Minneapolis wheat stocks Increased 1,650.
000 bushcis for five days this week.
Liverpool closed '..d higher on wheat and
's'rjVI higher on corn. There was some
disappointment In American cables, but
later a disposition arose to support tho
market on acnunt of unfavorable reports
from Argentina and the fuel that offeis
from there were 3d higher.
A wire from Toronto fays: "The cash
grain business Is very flat. Deliveries In
Ontario seem to be practically dried up,
and the Manitoba grain Is not moving any
too freely. In spite of the fact of an
excellent demand and a strong undertone,
and we have not the grain to do the busi
ness with."
Uroomhall, at Liverpool, tabled news re.
reived by him from Lisbon, that official
permission is expected for additional Im
portation of 2,,'i bushels of wheat Into
J'olliiKBI under me present tow umy.
From the Trice Current: "Some reports
of III effect of freezing and thawing on
wheat manifestly without much, If any,
definite Injury. Crop mostly quite promis
ing. Conditions i luting to coi n and move
ment about as previously Indicated. Mild
weather conditions, favoring stock, saving
grain consumption."
Private cables from Argentina toward
noon said weather was improving and
there waa some selling in Chicago on the
strength of the rejKjrt.
The Minneapolis flour output last week
waa the lightest since May, 1904. it de
creased 145,1(06 barrels, being less than half
as large as In the preceding week. Ex
port trade la of a most limited character.
One or two mills reported a fcurprtslngly
good domestic demand, considering the sea
eon. ft Is claimed that the large arrivals of
wheat northwest are simply the trans
fer of the grain from country to terminal
elevators by the large owners at Mlnne
apolla and Duluth, and that farmers are
not selling any wheat.
All the flax seed markets of the world
were lower vesterdav, with the exception
of Hull. Eng. At Duluth there was a net
decline of 2"e and at Chicago lc. Antwerp
waa 2ic and London waa lower.

net weather, with other factors less In
fluential, mad" bullish wheat market here
tod-iv. At the rloe wheat for May dellv
ery waa up VjiBt.e. Corn shewed a gsln of
lir. Oats were practically unchanged
and provisions were 7W higher.
The news of the day was generally favor
ahle to the hulls. Advices from Argentina
were somewhat conflicting, but the un
favorable reports seemed to carry the
greater weight. Other Influences that In
creased the demand for wheat here were
the Russian situation and rumors of a pos.
slble war between France and fWmanv. A
small advance In the price of wheat at
IJverpool had a bullish Influence at the
opening of the market. Another encourag
ing feature to the bulls waa an Improved
demand for rash wheat at the prlnclp il
grnln centers of the I'nlted States. The
rhlef encouragement for the bears during
the day was found In Bradstreet's report of
the wnrld's visible supply of wheat, which
showed an Increase of 7 5rt0o0 bushels. This
brought about considerable short selling by
local traders at about the middle of the ses
sion, but many of these covered later at
higher prices. Several leading longs were
rerrlstetit buyers during the day. The mar.
Fet closed Arm. The range on Mav for the

head of the Influential banking firm of
Kuhn. Loeb & Co., sent a tremor through
the speculative fabric of the stock market
today bv his utterance cf the opinion that
unless something was done to Improve the
currency system of this country there
would be a panic with which all panics
which have gone before would seem as
child's play. The sensational terms of this
utterance and the bulletin form In which
the knowledge of it first came to the stock
market precipitated heavy liquidation which
broke prices with some violence and caused
a weak and disorderly closing The violent
slump In Anaconda and Amalgamated Cop

On the Produce exchange today the but
ter market was Arm: creameries, KfiJlHc;
the New Y'ork market, and loans on lime
for the shorter periods continue to com
mand a considerable, premium.
In foreign markets as the release of nc
cumulated funds proceeds through the an
nual settlements it becomes manifest that
measures will be sustained for mutual pro
tection against demands from on another. 1
Serious account evidently la taken of the
coming conference on Morocco and the re
ports of extensive precautionary military
preparations Induces some pause In specula
tion to see the outcome more clearly. The
Paris market seems determined to maintain
Its unusually high level of bank reserves
and the Rank of England Is reported to be
preparing to borrow money from the open
market with the purpose of keeping up the
Interest rate as a protection against outside,
demands. ery large repayments of call
loans were reported as being made on the
stock exchange today and this bad a
natural effect on easiness of rates In this
department. The rates for time loans were
Inclined to advance even un to the six
months' period, showing some shifting of
call loans Into borrowings on time. The
hesitation reflected in the narrow fluctu
ations of the day gave away to the acuto "'"V", ""
