Features of the Tradlngr and Closing;
I'rlces on Board of Trade.
CHICAUO, July 30.-The local wheat mar
ket wis strong today, owing to an active
demand based on additional "black rust"
re,.otts from the Dakotas. At the close the
Molember delivery was up Vulc. Corn
was -.'(( '-' higher. Data were up He.
I UVI8.JM were c to lac higher.
the wheat market was strong all day,
imci) the exception of a brief period of ner
vousness st I ha ouset, when prices dropped
a trifle below yesterday's closing quota
tions. The dominating factor during the
entire session was the situation lfr the
northwest, where the new crop, It Is
claimed, Is In danger of being Injured by
black rust. Nearly every commission house
represented on the Hosrd of Trade had
dispatches claiming tiiat the rust blight
had appeared in the wheat fields of North
and Houtn Dakota. Many of these dis
patches, however, asserted that It was still
uncertain whether or not the crop had been
seriously damaged. A falling off in the re
ceipts in the southwest helped to Inspire a
bullish sentiment. There was liberal real
ising at times, but all offerlr.a were read
ily absorbed. Tne market closed strung.
' with prices near the niah point. September

on the corresponding day owe year ago.
Minneapolis, Duluth and Chicago reported
ereipts of 474 cars, against 34 cars last
week and o57 cars one year ago.
Corn was strong, chiefly because of the
advance In wheal prices. The market was
sffected to some extent by the hot, dry
weather now prevailing over almost the
entire- coin belt, slid by a firm market at
Liverpool. An advance of Ic In the price
of the cash grain, also had a bullish influ
ence. The close" was strong. September

Oats weic strong on active demand

NEW YORK STOCKS AND BONDS
Market is Neglected and at Timei
GOULD SITUATION FEATURE
Trader Awaited F.xpeeted Annonne
ment of Plan for Meellnsj otes,
Which Did Not Come I ntll
NEW YORK, July 30-The stock market
was much neglected today and 'or a largf
part ot the lime was practically Idle, in-
tiuence on this result was attributed to a
feeling of suspense of th wunheld an
nountemi nt of the pian of settlement of
th Wheeling & Lake Erie note maturity.
News of the settlement was expected be
fore noon at the outset, but when a further
postponement was announced to what
would be later than the session of the Stock
exchange all disposition to operate In the
market eeemrd to be lost. The show of
strength In the Oould group kept alive a
supposition that the forthcoming news
Would be helpful to values. The reticence
of all persons directly concerned In the ne
gotiations, however, and the variety of
the rumors In circulation as to the proba
ble outcome Indicated so much uncertainty
that speculative operators hesitated lo com
mit themselves. Aside from this speclsl
cause for a lull In activity, the trading
seems to have entered upon one of the usual
between periods of hesitation and seeking
for new Initiative.
The number of events In the last few
days which had been looked forward to as
important In their bearing on values and
upon which action had been taken accord
ingly In the market accounts for this lspse
Into dullness. The cessation of the buving
of the stocks which has resulted from this
stste of the market was not followed to
day by anv Important sellin Vhn a re
cession In prices occurred the selling p-
rrnim in nn suspennen entirely, profes
sional traders, however, had a suspicion
that any advance In prices was taken ad
vantage of to distribute stocks. The quiet
ness of the market was believed to be In
accord with the desire of Important finan
cial Interests, which are supposed to depre
cate undue speculative excitement at this
season of political activity and of develop
ments believed to be working out as well
In railroad affairs. Some Influence towards
repression of activity was caused bv the
published announcement bv the attorney
general of the Intention of the government
to push with renewed vigor all cases pend
ing against railroads for granting rebates
or like offenses. There Is some apprehen
sion that this mood of the government au
thorities may affect the desire of the rail
roads to advance freight rates, for which a
benevolent view from the Interstate Com
merce commission was at one time counted
upon. The copper atocks showed consider
able strength, those trad-d In on the Stock
exchange as well as those traded In out

which was a very
I, lit run e.en for a Thursday. There was
n,,thln vetv so d or very attractive among
the rec.'lt, t-. Almost half Of the ar.lvas
(unstated of coxa and lieliers, wnn quite a
sprinkliiig of western sieers, together Uh
some K rn-feds and a few b ads of feeders.
As usual when the receipts are sj light
tie mi: ket was uninteresting from s a t
10 ilnlsh. Buyers did not stem to feel that
there were enough cattle to u worth going
after very hard and ss. til there was a better
demand, so that the few cattle here n
eraby so d in pretty good a on. The
prices pad were anywhere from steady to
a little hlghfr than yesterday. Thus west
erns that brought $4.M) yesterday sold to
day at $4.65. Th're were no stilctly g iod
ct rn-ff do to make a trst of tiie maiket.
Tne stiength cevekped yesterday and to
day wlp out the ilecl'ne of Monday and
some would say more, too, leaving the mar
ket fully as good as at the clone ot last
we'k, or poss bly a little higher. This Is
espei lallv true of westerns, which did not
I teak as much (he first of the week.
Corn-fed steers have not been as much
kojk'U after ss have the wes ems and It Is
a quest in If H e top 1 ait e as week w u!d
br iim as much IhU wren, nut still there
have b en none of that kind heis to make
Ti;e tew rows and heifers here sold very
much as they did yesterday, or poss bly a
li.tle ptrongt r in opots. As has been tho
case with beef steers, cuws and heifers
have firmed up s!ni.e the break Monday
until tliey are fully us liiKh or possibly a
uttlo higher than last weak.
Tl.eie were tnly a few scattering bunches
of feeders on sale, but there was a pretty
gocti de.iiund and (ho desirable klnda s ld
freely ot good simnii prices. The (Oiin'r
demand for leeih is Iihs been he ter th 1
w.-ek and prkes l.ave shown a little more
Mnngih than last week.

Action of Railroad, They Sty, Will
Not Hurt Business.
PUBLIC INTEREST IS AROUSED
Coarse Has Been Derided 4n aa Re
tall f the Recent Ruling Mad
ky 4e Interstate Com
The decision of the railroads to withdraw
the through freight tariffs td the orient,
has set the public to wondering what the
result will be. The high officials of the
roads refuse lo throw; any light upon, the
situation, although they say. "it Is hoped
the new plan will work out all rUjht, com
mercially, and that the trade with thj
orient will not be permitted to suffer."
Officials in Omaha take their tip for sllenca
from Hill and Krutlschmltt, who refuse 14
The recer.t decision of the Interstate
Commerce commission requires that th
railroads shall publish the share of tha
rata received by the railroads on this orien
tal business. To do this, the railroads,
they affirm, could not well compete with
the all water routes through the Panama
canal, tvean lines are not subject to the
rulings of the Interstate Commerce com
mission and do not have to publish tariffs.
The rule In question says:
Ocean carriers between ports of the
I'nlted Stales and foreign countries not ad
jacent are not subject to the terms of the
act to regulate 'commerce; nor to the Juris
diction of the commission.
The Inland carriers of traffic exported to
ot Imported from a foreign coutAry not
adjacent, must publish their rates and fares
to the ports and from the ports, and such
rates ir fares must be the same for all
regardless of what ocean carrier may be
designated by the shipper or passenger.
As a matter of convenience lo the public
they may publish In their tariffs such
through expert or Import rates or fares to
or fmm foreign points as they may make
In connection with ocean carriers. Such
tariffs must, horn-ever, distinctly state the
Inland rate or fare as above provided; and
need 'not be concurred In by tho ocean
carrier, because, concurrence can be re
quired from, and Is effective against, only
carriers subject to the act.
Which ever plan of publishing thaaa rates
and fares la followed the taxlffs must b
filed and posted, and may be changed only
upon statutory notice or under special per
mission for shorter time.
Kxport and Import traffic may be for
warded under through billftsr, but eiidi
through billing must clearly separate the
liability of the Inland carrier of carriers
and ot the ocean carrier, and muat show
the tariff rate of tha Inland carrier or car
riers. The trsfflc between tha Orient and this
country has been subject to varying condi
tions and hitherto It has been the custom
to publish a through tariff without giv
ing the proportions received by tha rail
roads. This proportion has naturally varied
according to the variety of routes followed.
The only way the railroads figure they can
comply with the law and still get the busi
ness Is to cut out the publication of the
through tarifts and have tha rates subject
to the rate to and from the port of export
and Import respectively.

Plana for PrO-College.
MITCHELL, 8. D., July 3o.-( Special.)
The German Lutheran synod of Iowa Is
making some Investigations In this s'sts
with the idea; of building a pro-college at
some advantageous point. The ministerial
I college Is located at Dubuque, Ia., and tha
i pro-college at Clinton, Ia., but the lattor
Institutlon Is w (tiled with students and
cannot accept any more at the opening ot
the fall term.' which leaves ths German
Lutherans in this state without an Institu
