Feat ares of the Trading; and Closing
Prices on Bonrtl ot Trade.
OHICAOO. Aug. 13. Purchase of wleat
by foreigners had much to do with making
prices here today. The clone, which was
at nearly the Joent figures of the session,
showed a net. advance of tttic. Other
grains finished lower, corn V(tlVc off and
oats VtlfrHc lower. Provisions gained 10r35c.
There were rumors of export sales of cash
wheat today from Chicago, but the leading
Interests discredited such reports. lndlrecfly
the market here felt the effect of the Ar
gentina drouth and the wet weather in
southern Russia and Roumanla. Altnough
trade was limited In volume the tone at tne
close was firm. September ranged from
$1.0l!1.03 to $1.034 and finished Ho up
General rains west made corn weak. Sep
tember sold between 64c and 6oc, closing
with a net decline of lc at 64c. No. 2 yel
low closed at 67Mtl74e.
September oats varied from 30 to 37VbC,
with the close V4c down at 3t?ic.
Smallness of holding receipts received the
blame for a rise in the coat of provisions.

Hopeful Feeling- Among Merchants
and Manafactureri of Country.
OUTLOOK FOB BUSINESS BRIGHT
Crop Conditions satisfactory and
Again Money Oeei Into Circa
lalloa to Take Care at
NEW YORK, Aug. 13. -(.Special Tele
gram.) One of the moat gratifying features
of the week from the standpoint of legiti
mate busineas wss the Increasing output
of commercial paper, and what added to
the significance- of this as Indicating trade
Improvement was the diversified character
of the notes offered for discount The dry
goods snd hardware trades, the packing
and grain elevator Interests and the textile
mills, together with miscellaneous smaller
Interests, were represented in the paper
that came upon the market Herein Ilea
the Importance of this new feature of the
situation. Nothing like It has been witnessed
for months past and everywhere there Is
a more hopeful feeling among merchants
and manufacturers as to the future of
the business of the country.
It can be said most emphatically that the
long expected favorable turn In the tide
has at last been reached and this is a matter
for general congratulation. The enlarged
offerings of paper this week were, for the
purpose of supplying present and prospec
tive wants of merchants and others who
are now disposed to make preparations for
a more active autumn business.
More Cash Circulates.
Another highly Important Incident of the
week that bears a close relation to this
matter of commercial paper has been the
loosening up, so to speak, by prominent,
banks of their enormous cash reserves.
For some time past these banks have con
tinued their loaning operations toiiieily to
call money, not doing much in the way of
loans nor of buying commercial paper. This
policy has recently been changed, especially
as to paper, and merchants now find that
the New York banking interests are ready
to buy or discount their paper freely. In
order to facilitate the rising tide of busi
ness. The significance of this can hardly
be overestimated, as it means that legiti
mate trade Is to be furnished with all the
capital necessary. Thus, the great accumu
lation or bank reserves at tills point for
weeks pubi is to be applied to the purpose
of assisting the country back, to a porlod
The influences back of this loosening up
of capital form an Interesting chapter In
the monetary situation. For some time
past New York bank officers have Im
pressed upon banking officials of the cen
tral reserve cities of the west the necessity
of greater liquidation of loans In order
to be better prepared for the autumn trade
and crop movements. The wisdom of this
has been- generally acknowledged, and
small country banks have been paying off
loans 'to larger institutions and these small
banks have notified farmers that they must
sell .their produots as they are harvested
and pay off their farm mortgages and
other obligations, some of which have been
contracted to Indulge In extravagances.
" Crop Conditions Good.
There has been no effort to force drastic
liquidation, such as has been witnessed on
the New York Stock exchange In the recent
past, but rather a steady and gradual
payment of debts to banks in the interior
by farmers and others who have been en
gaged In land speculation. The gradual
and orderly Uqulaablon now going on will
be completed without any detriment to
trade, and already Its beneficial influence
! is reflected in large marketings of wheat
by fanners, which have brought tne cereals
within the limits of exporters and shipping
engagements are now being made at some
of the out-ports and at the west
Crop conditions as developed this week,
have certainly been an incentive to trade.
The government report, Indicating a total
yield of spring and winter wheat of 657,
000,000 bushels and of corn of 2,900,000,000
bushels, inspired confidence in trade cir
cles, especially the situation In corn has
Improved since the date of the government
statement. There has been some Improve
ment also In cotton, with the exception of
portions of the state of Texas, where tt
can be said that the dry gooda trade con
tinues to show increasing activity with
an advancing trend to cotton goods.
. The boot and shoe Industry Is also doing
better, and the same Is true of the copper
Industry, which - has been benefited . by
curtailment fcf production.

CATTLE The cattle market, as uBual
on a Saturday, was bare, or almost bare
of supplies. The total for ths week foots
up 23,9o6 head, being a falling off of about
$,300 head as compared with last week, but
a gain of over 4,000 head as compared with
a year ago.
In spite of the fact that ths market on
beef steers at Chicag-o and other eastern
points has shown more or leas weakness
during the last few days the market at
this point has continued very satisfactory
throughout the week. Prloea have gradu
ally firmed up, being a little stronger from
day to day until at the close of the woek It
Is safe to call the general market on corn
fed and western beef steers as 10 20c higher
than at last week's close. -
No great change has taken place during
the week on cows and heifers, which have
been quoted as about steady from day to
day. The demand, however, has been fair,
so that supplies havs bean wall cleaned up
every day, thus keeping the market in a
good healthy condition. Veal calves have
advanced 2&t50c for the week, while bulls
and stags are a little stronger than one
The market on stock ers and feeders has
been In splendid condition throughout the
week. The country has been a free buyer
and values have steadily advanced until
at the close of the week they are 1620c
higher than one week ago. It might be
added that the supply of stockers and
feeders has been ununually small as com
pared with the total receipts of cattle
this means that a larger proportion than
usual of the range cattle is fat enough for

HOGS In point of Improvement, today's
hog trade was almost identical with that
of yesterday. Prices advanced in both
division, the big end of a moderate supply
moving at figures fully a dime higher. De
mand was active from all quarters, and
while shippers' orders were not very large,
a very good clearing was made during
.arly hours. -Average ' cost of total pur
Cnases passed the $8.00 mark for the first
time In two weeks, but the scale of prices
was very uneven, loads of similar weight
and quality frequently selling a dims
Heavy hogs claimed all of the average
sovance aa a ruie, gooa neaviea ranging
from $7.90 to $8.10. Medium weight mixed
of good quality moved around $8.30(18.25 and
lights brought the high figure. Selected
bacon hogs sold at the top, $860. Killers
are showing some reluctance about buying
high-priced loads, however, and range is
narrowing a little as a result. A spread or
$7.80t8.26 embraced the long strings today
as compared with yesterday's bulk, $7.80
Tone of trade during the week has been
decidedly bullish. Supplies have been
liberal, but packers have been free buyers
on all days, almost everything selling
shortly after arrival. Current sales are
fully 36c higher than those ol last. Satur

HUP Receipts consisted of four cars
of sheep and lamb, consigned direct to a
parser, so met the market remained un
changed. The trade during the week has been
heavily supplied with range stork. Over
t.O00 head have arrived since a aeek ago,
the largest week's run thus far this year.
Monday s supply was especially generous,
over one-third of totsl receipts showing up
on the opening day. Feeder shipments were
plentiful throughout and offerings of both
killers and feeders ran largely lo lamha.
K.arly demand was rather backward and
the tendency of prices a little lower on all
classes of sto-k. except half-fat kinds
suitable for the feed lot. Oood fat wethers
and ewes had to sell at reductions of lot
16c, $3.90 buying best Wyoming brands. Fat
lambs dropped to figures about a quarter
lower, choice ones selling around $6.60.
Closing trade, while more or less uneven
was generally stronger. The $4 00 quota
tion on wethers was recovered and strictly
prime hsndy-welghts might even sell as
high as $4.10. Fat ewes are selling on much
the same basla Fat yearlings would bring
$6.26, If they were choice, but actual sales
on good ones did not pass the $6.00 mark.
In a general way, the fat sheep market Is
right around weak to a dime lower as com
pared with prices at last week's close. Fat
(amba also regained much of the meek
ness. The feeder market la still In excellent
shape. Despite a very large supply, orders
were ample and the barn at present Is
practically empty. Prices were well sus
tained from the opening, and today finds
a set of quotations that are qtiotably strong
with those of a week ago. Desirable feeder
yearlings have been selling around $.'.0tfj
6.10. with feeder lambs at $6.91X416.00, and
even as liL;h as $6.10.

ERA OF PROSPERITY IS SEEN
Values Remain High, Except to Spec

WAGES OOOD OVER THE COUNTRY
Despite Drop of A boat m Million Dol
lars oa Paper Vilsri of Kxchanae
neai rssoiiio 01 i o-niry 1-y
Declared to lie Splendid.
BY PRESTON C. ADAMS.
NEW YORK. Aug. 13 (Special to The
Bee.) If we are not In for an era of pros
perity then some of the keenest observers
are mistaken and all signs will have failed.
It Is true that there has been a drop of
something Mke a Mlllon and a halt In stock
value in Wall street from the high point
of the year, but this losa haa been of paper
values and has affected only the specula
tors and weak holdera who have been
shaken out. Dividends and Interest pay
ments have been on an unprecedented
scale, workmen are receiving higher wages
generally and the farmers continue to buy
automobiles, despite the horrified protests
of Wall street, which hates to see so much
good money diverted to other channels.
The last steel trust statement of earnings
Is a pretty good Indication of business con
ditions, showing aa they do a gratifying
increase In net earnings over last year.
Scoots Well Pleased.
Then, two well-known New York men In
close touch with large financial and other
businesses, who take an Interest In the af
fairs of the country, have Just returned
from a more or less extended trip to the
west. They are A. Barton Hepburn, presi
dent of the Chase National bank, and W. C.
Ri-oWti, president of the New York Central
railroad lines. Mr. Hepburn pawed through
eleven states, but did not go beyond the
Mississippi. Mr. Brown's trip of ten days
took him Into the Dakolas and Nebraska.
Both brought back words of good cheer.
Mr. Hepburn says: "In my recent trip,
weet I crossed eleven states and, although,
not n expert, the crop conditions seemed
to me to be very good Indeed. The oats
and wheat was practically all harvested,
some In process of threshing and some be
ing stacked, but mnet of It Is still standing
In stacks In the fields. I did not go west
of the Mississippi, but am Inclined to think
that the crop damage, especially In the
northwest, has been largely overestimated.
What 'Millers Report.
"A committee of millers, lust returned ta
Minneapolis from a tour of inspection
through Minnesota and the Dakotas. re
ports that the money value of the crops of
Minnesota, South Dakota and the aouthern
half of North Dakota will exceed Uiat of
any previous crops. Conditions In the north
ern half ot North Dakota are serious and
tney estimate the crop value as about one
third the average. The price of flax is
$2.06 and the flax crop will an far towards
making up the loss upon wheat.
i nat tne Dunincss or the country as a
whole Is In good condition and orofltalile Is
eviuencea Dy tne very 'large volume of busi
ness. I am very optimistic as to general
Mr. Brown said: "I have not only made
as close personal observation and investiga
tion as possible, but have employed reliable
men of good judgment to go through Minne
sota and the two Dakotas and most o' .N'e
braska and Kansas and report oiy Ci'dl
tlons. From the Missouri river tbAr5fr to
New York I have mode a personal exam
ination and the country looked like a garden
all the way,
drain Is Excellent.
"One of the best crops of small grain as
to the quality that I have ever seen, and
about normal as to quantity has been har
vested and Is either In the stack or being
threshed out of the shock, and the result
of every Job of threshing that 1 saw ex
ceeded the expectations and estimates mad
before the harvest.
"The corn from the western part of Ne
braska right through to the Atlantlo sea
board is at or above the average at this
time of year. In the extreme western part
of Nebraska, on the edge of the sage brush,
plains, and In the western and southwest
ern part of Kansas there has been some
damage from hot weahter and lack of
moisture, but to this time I do not believe
the damage will amount to 2 per cent of
the corn crop of the country as a whole.
"Minnesota will raise about 86 per cent
of a small grain crop and 60 per cent of a
normal hay crop. The corn la exception
ally good, and with seasonahls rains from
this time until the first of September will
make better than a normal crop. The two
Dakotas will raise 60 per cent of a normal
orop In small grain and better than a nor
mal crop ot corn."

"Though the cotton manufacturing Hade
In Lancashire haa been bad all this year,
from a producer's point of view, the turn
over haa been considerable.
