the southwest and lack of It In Manitoba
had a strengthening effect today on the
lot ul wheat market, the September de
livery closing at a net gain of Ho. Corn
was up farc- Oats were He higher. Pro
visions were ao lower to 6c higher.
In addition to the unfavorable weather
for the crop In the winter wheat section
and In parts of Canada, the wheat mar
ket was bulllshly affected by a rumor
, that Spain had suspended the duty on
wheat. Small primary receipts and light
country acceptances also Increased the de
, niainl In the local market. With the ex
k ceptlon of a heavy tone during the first
I lew minutes of trading, due to lower
1 tiMes and a generally favorable weather
'tfc the northwest, the market was strong
oV day. Prices reacted slightly In the last
half hour, but the close was strong. Sep
tember oened V to So lower at 91 to 91HO,
advanced to 92, and closed at 824c. Clear

bu. against' 1.5S.0G0 Tu. on the same day

The corn market was strong all day
on buying by commission houses and ele
vator interests The chief bullish factor
was the Iowa state crop bulletin for the
week ending July 22, which suld that the

to the upturn In wheat and corn. A num.
ber of reports wore received telling of the
Improved appearance of the crop In many
localities, and these advices caused mod
erate liquidation. The market closed
, steady. September opened unchanged to

Sharp Rise in Southern Pacific Due to
Bumor of Higher Dividend.
Steel and Other Storks Decline
Because of Sales to Seenre
Panda to Invest In
NEW YORK. July 24.-The action of
Southern Pacillo today, which rose to 90 V4,
wa regarded as strongly confirmatory of
the conviction that an Increase Jn the divi
dend rate Is Imminent. No official informa
tion of the plans of the dlreetors could be
secured beyond the information that the
directors would !e In sesalon tomorrow, the
executive committee not until Inter. This
information was considered to Indicate that
a period of speculative activity in Southern
Paclflo would Intervene before dividend
action shall be announced. The profes
sional traders followed the movement on
this supposition, very Industriously. Borne
of tho rumors used with effect regarding
the probable dividend action were not con
tent with asserting the Intention to
the rate to 6 per cent, but Insisted on a
coming 7 per cent rate. Tho official esti
mates of the year s earnings mihllHhed last
week showed a balance of 3:.1,&75,1Sf after
the allowance for the dividend 011 the pres
ent outstanding preferred stock. ThlH Is
equivalent to about 12 per cent on the com
mon stock of the company. The 33'!."0O.0' 0
of new preferred stock, now In process of
payment does not yet draw dividends, tho
requirement for which would be 3iftU0.n00
each year. It will be seen that either tho
6 or 7 per cent dividend would leave a
large margin of surplus in tho present rate
of earnings. The weight of opinion in th8
trading element today was In fiivor of the
6 per cent rate. Vnlon Pacific sympathized
with the Junior security today. Tills served
to rectify, to some extent, the bad effect
of Vnlon Pacific's recent poor response to
the movement in Southern Pacific, which
threw suspicion on the latter movement.
In view of Vnlon Pacific's large holdings
of Southern Pacific and Its consequent
profit from an Increase In the latter's
dividend, Vnlon Pacillo whs expected to
move In harmony with Southern Pucllic.
The movement was not without some In
fluence on the general list, but in nothing
like the proportion that would he expected
usually of such a considerable market
demonstration In a prominent stock. This
wss partly due to the fact that there whs
some switching of traders' accounts from
other stocks Into the Harrlmuns. Accounts
In other stocks were sold out to secure
resources to put Into Southern Pacific. This
process was reported In operation in re
gard to Vnited States Steel and helped to
account for the heaviness of that stock.
The character of the discussion over tho
iron strike episode has been followed bv
a diminution of the talk of an Intended
Increase In the Vnited States Steel divi
dend at the meeting of the directors next
week. Bt. Paul showed the chtsest sym
pathy with the Harrlmans. and Amalga
mated Copper developed a degree of later
strength In compliance with the better
tone of the foreign market for the metal.
The Hill stocks were backward, owing to
the difficulties which have bee pointed
out In the way of a cutting of a Burling
ton melon for those stockholders. Monev
on call continued to decline, and at tho
same time foreign exchange made, a fur
ther encroachment on the narrow margin
which divides it from the gold export point
and kept that prospect in view. Of the
day's total sales of 682, AOO flhares. 149.4cfl
were of Southern Pacific and 176.000 of
Vnlon Pacific, thus lllustrAtlng the un
evenness of the day's market.
Bonds were Irregular. Total sales par
value 31,214,000. Vnited States 2s registered
declined V4. while the coupons advanced V4
per cent on call.

Wool Market.
BOSTON, July 23.-WOOLr-Tradlng In the
wool market Is less excessive than last
year. Many heavy dealers have withdrawn,
while buyers are more disposed to hold off
until supplies are larger and the general
situation Is more clearly defined. Most of
the prominent lnfluencxs at present are of
a strengthening character and the demand
seems to be running more than ever to flna
wools, which are not over plentiful. The
s.-ason will go on record as one of the
shortest in history. The market for for
eign wool Is dull. Quotations on western

IXJNDON, July 24. WOOL The wool auc
tion sales closed today with a moderate
selection offered, which met with ready
sale at current rntee. During the series,
good merinos met with Increased competition
on the part of American buyers and the
closing rates were partially 6 per cent
higher than the previous auctions. Klne crotss
breeds realised unchanged prices, while
poor growth and scoured merinos show a
decline of 6 to 10 per cent. Cape of flood
Hope and Natal wools were 6 per cent
cheaper. During the sales the continent
purchased fio.OnO. the home trade, TS.uoO and

CATTLK Receipts of cattle this morning
were not large, only 123 cars being reported
In, of which number eleven cars wero di
rect to packers and not offered for sale.
There was a sprinkling of all kliuK but no
great number of any one thing. The mar
ket aa a whole was slow and to that ex
tent at least unsatisfactory.
Packers were late In getting out Into the
yards and It was evident right from the
Start that their orders were not sufficiently
pressing to make an active market. The
whole market was a drag from start to
finish. Some of tho best cattle perhaps
did not sell so very much lower, but the
general tendency was lower on everything.
Medium to common kinds of fed steers,
such as show more or less grass and all
kinds of medium to pretty decent grass,
westerns have been gradually working to a
lower basis all the week. Such cattle are
2T,c, and In some cases as much as 4to
lower than a week ago. Chicago closed ?ff
40c lower last week, while there was little
change at this point. This week the
Omaha market Is having its turn and prices
are being forced down to a point that will
bring them An line with Chicago. It Is
difficult for the country to realize Just how
much lower these cattle are.
The cow trade was very dull today. Some
sellers who happened to have what buyers
wanted, thought they got out In pretty
good shape and about us well as yester
day, but, on the other hand, the general
market was lower. Grass cows, like grass
steers, have sold off sharply "lis week,
but strictly good dry lot cows and heifers
have held up very well.
Good welgnt feeders hove been In fair
demand every day this week and have sold
to good advantage., but. as noted before in
these columns, the light stocks, even the
best grades, have been a drug on the mar
ket. Prloes have slumped so rapidly that
it has been almost Impossible to keep up
with the market. They are at the best
25f(50c lower than the best time a week or
ten days ago and some grades are 6075c

SHEKP The market this morning wns a
dead tine. Tho receltps were large and
advices from eastern points were not st
all encouraging. Mure than that, packers
were complaining that the eastern mutton
msrkot was exceedingly bad. Whatever
may have leen the reason, It was very
evident that packers either did not care
fnr fresh supplies of any consequence, or
else were determined to break the market.
They were very backward about making
bids, and when they did bid. their offers
were decidedly lower. To relieve the pres
sure loc.Uly, milto a number of sheep were
shipped out without being sold. Such stuff
as did sell went at prices that were right
at 2."c lower than yesterday morning.
