CHICAGO. July 29. Uncertainty reardln
the extent of damage, If aay, to the spring
wheat crop in the northwest by black rust,
kept the wheat market in & turmoil today
and prices moved over a wide range. At
the close a weak tone prevailed, prices
being off "4c to SJMic Corn cloeed fairly'
steady, oats weak and provisions firm.
1 Denials of Injury to the new crop .of

Tiack rust, together with cooler weather
lrt the northwest . prompted considerable
selling at the opening of the market, which
resulted in a decline of US,o. . Tbe mar
ket was also bearishly affected by the
' magnitude of local receipts, arrivals todav
being 268 car or 60 carloads more than
bad been officially estimated. Toward the
end of the flrat hour a sharp rally oc
curred on buying' baaed on confirmation
from two different sources of damage by
rust In one section of North Dakota. On
this bulge the price of the distant delivery
touched the highest point of the day, .Sep
tember advancing to H.US,. There Waa' a
considerable reaction from the top In the
final hour. During the day July aold be
tween 21.07H and 21. OK1. Delleverlea on

Poeelhle Deadlock, Waa Cause of
laeaey Feellag. Which Later
New York. July The usually active
speculative stocka fell into neglect today
but a diversion of interest to tne irs
prominent quarters of the list rectified
the dull appearance of the market ana
supplied points of strength that gave tone
to the whole.
The news from Washington up to the
time the market closed was regarded an
offering ominous pomOblllue of a dead
lock In the final stagrs or tne tariri eei
tlement which might negative the results
of all the labor of recent months and
leave the business of the country In a
state of renewed uncertainty over Ihe fu
ture. This fear, however, was proved to
be unwarranted by later events.
The decidedly firmer tone In the time
money market was another dissuasive in
fluence on speculative activity. The pre
monitory symptoms of the seasonable de
mand from the crop moving sections are
appearing in the banking world and the
possible consequence to speculative bor
rowers are beginning to be taken Into
account. Some of the western banks are
withdrawing loans placed on call In this
market during the Idle period of the home
demand for funds.
The Inference Is drawn of a developing
requirement for banking facilities outside
of the speculative markets In the great
centers. The lifting of interest rates on
time loans In this market has caused a
resort to foreign quarters to borrow, and
this foreign borrowing was offered as an
explanation of the sharp fall In foreign
exchange rates whtch occurred today.
London was a purchaser also of stocks
In New York o seme extent, and this
made a supply of exchange which had Its
part In driving rates lower. No further
gojd engagements were announced, but
the engagements for several weeks ahead
remain to be shipped to South America.
The disorders In Spain and the threat
ened aspect of political affairs there was
a disturbing Influence abroad, but had
verv little Influence here. The Spanish
newa was a factor In weakening Rio Tlnto
copper mining shares, but Amalgamated
Copper did not show Its ususl svmpathv
with the movement and made a good
show of strength.
Oraln cron advices were considered fa
vorable. The price currents report In
stilled fresh confidence on the subject,
and the clearing weather In the northwest
removed fears of damage to wheat by
rust The cotton crop Is the subject of
apprehension, and the poor condition re
ported by the National Ginners' report led
to anticipations of a dlsoouraglng 'nlolJ
by the government report to be published
on Mondav. Stocks of railroads In south
ern territory, some of them distinctively
cotton carriers. were. nevertheless
amongst the principal features of strength
In the market.
These Included a particular movement In
the Oould group and also In Louisville
and Nashville, Atlantic Coast Line and.
In a less degree. Southern railway. The
grangers, on the other hand, were ne
glected and this added to the most Im
movable course of I'nion Pacific end
T'nlted States Steel compared with their
recent aggressive leadership, was largely
responsible for the ' lethargic appearsnce
of the market. New York Central con
tlnued to reflect the influence of the sup-
evr lerk Money Market.

in. This brings the total for the four riaya
this week to a point that Is over 2.000
head In excess of last week' run and
about 2,400 head In excess of the same days
a year ago.
There were not enough beef steers In
sight to make a market so that the trade
was dull and uninteresting throughout
the morning. There was one string of
cornfeds good enough to bring 86.76 and
there were a few scattering lots ot west
There were only a few cows and heifers
on sale, but the demand was, by no means
urgent, and the market was dull. Packers
did not seem to be overly anxious for
supplies, but still they kept picking up a
lead or two at a time. As to prices, there
was not much change, hut the feeling, if
anything, was weak. Now and then a
salesman thought that he secured a good
strong price for good killing cows, - but
there wer other who thought they sold
a little lower.
There were not veyy many Blockers of
feeders In the yards, but what there were
sold In about the same notches, there be
ing little chang In any direction.

HOGS Hogs sold 6910c lower this morn
ing, but meetly 10c lower. While the trade
was not active, there was sufficient de
mand to clean up the receipts In very fair
season. The hogs all sold very largely at
$7.2097.30. with $7.26 the popular prlco.
Heavy packing hogs that Is, old rough
sows were very slow sellers at bottom fig-urea.
It would look very much as If the beers
had both live hogs and the provision mar
ket on the run. During the last three davs
prlcea have declined 80936c. it being the
largest break that has taken place in the
market for a long time. Today's decline
takes the market to the lowest point

Among the recent awarda of merit certi
ficates to soldiers in the regular army
for exceptionally gallant and meritorious
services between July 1, 1908, and Jung 30,
1909, was one to Corporal Roy F. Cog of
the Cnlted States signal corps, formerly
of Fort Omaha. He Is well known to many
Omahans, as well as regarded as one of
the most competent and valuable men In
the signal service by his commander, In
cluding Lieutenant W. A. OlSesford, under,
whom Corporal Cox received roost of hie
signal turps Instruction, being a product
of the Fort Omaha Signal school.
Corporal Cox Is still a member of the
Signal Corps on duty In Alaska. He won
his medal for an act In December of last
year, which the War department has of
ficially recorded as "highly meritorious."
t'sually no adjectivea ace used by . the
War department.. Corporal Cox waa gta-i
tinned near Sitka, Alaska. One day the
commanding officer at Fort Gibbon, got
Information that a civilian who waa travel
ing in Alaska wild alone was stormbound
and perishing about thirty miles north of
the post and sixty-five miles distant from
Fairbanks. The company was formed and
the commanding offlctr told the men' that
a volunteer was needed to make an at
tempt to rescue the stranger. A bllxzard
was raging and the man who Was to go
knew that he would go alone and that
he would have to make the Journey on
snowshoea and drag a sled on which he
would have to draw Ihe stranger. If foun.l
alive, lo some distant place, probably to
Fairbanks, where hospital accommoda
tions were available for his treatment.
Corporal Cox stepped out of 'the ranks
and said he was ready to go at once. Two
hours later a fur-clad figure, dragging a
small sled, left Fort Gibbon. Most of the
delay In getting away was due to ihe
farewells he had to make, fur few of his
comrades of Company K believed thai lie
would ever return.
