CHICAGO. Aug. 27. Wheat ruled higher
from the start and closed ltlMic up. Corn
borrowed strength from the wheat pit and
finished feWc higher, while oats on a
moderate trala advanced and closed 'Afcc
Up. Provisions showed a strong tone and
finished from 2V4B22'o higher, with pork
leading the other products.
Reports of export sales from Chicago,
although moderate In volume, controlled the
Wheat pit toil ay and were the basis for
a bullish market throughout the session.
At the start prices advanced sharply and
on the upturn shorts began buying.. The
export sale gave promise of larger ship
ments and traders listened willingly to re
ports that the continental and English mar
kets would need much wheat later to Im
prove the grade of the home crop. North
West receipts were liberal and arrivals for
the week at all grain centers while smaller
than last week totalled much more than
those of the corresponding week last year.
Kstlmatea of enormous world's shipments
and a notable lnoreaae In the visible supply
for n.)xt week, were bearish statistics will oh

The dividend payments next month will

The disbursements for the nine months of
this year tincludlng September) are (1,194.

same nine months of last year. Already
this year dividend and Interest disburse
ments are $J7,OU0,0n0 ahead of the disburse
ments of the entire year of 1907.
In the face of these conditions It Is the
height of absurdity for any man to at
tempt to discount prosperity. All of the
underlying conditions of business and fi
nance today are firm. It is true that few
Wall street Napoleons, who are alarmed
over the political trend, have been attempt
ing to falsify actual conditions, but the
statistics herewith set forth, eloquently
deny all false assertions.
o Cause for Alarm.
It Is said here that the New York bank
surplus will not be sufficient In tne eariy
fall to assist the middle west in the move
ment of the crops. There Is nothing for
alarm In this statement, for the financial
conditions In the Interior are such now that
financial help from New York will not be
needed. There is plenty of money in the in
terior. In fact, bankers from the middle
west have complained that they have too
much money on hand.
On the currency operations 01 me piwui
week. New York banks have lost approxi
mately 8726.000. A gain of $!..000 was mude
on money transactions with the Interior
but this was onset oy tne met him
$1.2I6,0u0 was paid to the United States
sub-treasury more than was received. To
this must be added $500,000 gold, which wus
withdrawn on Thursday for shipment to
Failure on the part of the Bank of Lng
land to increase Its rate of discount ac
coidlng to expectations in certain quarters
here caused no marked change In the foi
eign exchange market It was said that
spculatlve committments for and against
such u, development pretty well counter
acted one another in the subsequent trad
ing. As a matter of fact. It is only thO
outsldo discount rate in Jjonaon mai is
earning concern.
Crops Are Satisfactory.
Crop conditions are highly satisfactory.
Such creat industrial corporations as the
International Harvester company and the
United States Steel corporation, wmon
keep In close touch with crop conditions,
have issued statements that they are
eminently satisfied with conditions aa
they exist at present t.irougnoui tne mia
dlewest and the western states. Late re
ports Indicate a decided Improvement In the
cotton fields and It Is said that the corn
crop will go to three billion bushels.
With these broad conditions so satisfac
tory. Industrial aik financial men are
teurnlng to the New Year to see what It is
going to orfer. Torn tne industrial ana
mining fields in Pennsylvania, Alabama,
Indiana and Illinois come optimistic signs
for 1911. The labor difficulties which have
seriously affected the coal and steel trade
are now about done. Already the order
books show a substantial showing for the
Initial period of the new year.
Progress in tne raureaa iieia nos oecn
somewhat handicapped through the dull
ness of the bond market, and the caution
of American and foreign investors.
Frankly speaking, railroad men will he
clad when the November elections are
over. There have been sundry expressions
appertaining to the activity 01 Colonel
Rooaevelt. Political enemies of Colonel
Roosevelt have declared that hla utterances
will cause unrest In Wall street. However,
that will do no great harm, unless Wall
street takes it into its head to act as It did
three years ago.
Adds to Working; Capital.
The Colorado Fuel and Iron company will
not likely pay off Its accumulated preferred
dividends, as the new policy of the com
pany is to accumulate working capital
against an unexpected Increase In business.
The company Is over $1,000,000 in arrears on
lis preferred dividends. However, the
finances of the corporation have now grown
to the point where no alarm Is felt. The
company will not be compelled to borrow
money. In fact. It Is predicted that It will
be doing a gross business of $30,000,000 next
year. It has spent nearly that much In
the Improvement of Its properties In the
last decade so that It Is Just now settling
down to a steady upward movement In
Dullness prevails in the copper market.

year without outside assistance, learnings
since early last year have been large and
the aggregate amount of cash carried is
above the average. The cash In bank held
by the United States Steel corporation runs
over $26,000,000.
International Harvester Is so long on re
sources that It has turned a lender. Stand

Steel company, Westlngheuse company and
others have the biggest cash resources) on

Cows and heifers have been active sellers
all the week and at the close they are
safely 10&2oo higher, the amount of the ad
vance depending entirely upon the kind and
quality of the stock.
Feeders have been very free sellers
throughout the week and cattle ot that de

SHEEP Four doubles of sheep and
lambs arrived today, but they were con
signed direct to a packer, so that the open
market remained unchanged.
Trade during the week has been heavily
supplied with range offerings, over 120 000
head showing up. This is the largest
week's run of the year. Feeder shipments
made up ths bulk, supplies running largely
to lambs.
In point of demand, trade could hardly
be In better condition, with the result
that prices have been well sustained
througnout the week. All classes of buy
ers bought freely, but feeder outlet proved
to be especially broad, the week closing
with a perfect clearance. Feeder lambs
brought 6 264;.60 and even as -much aa
MSO. t must be remembered that these
figures call for good killing ends, larTThs
that are thin and light selling below pi 26.
Feeder sheep and yearlings have been
selling equally well, as Is Indicated by
current quotations.
Fat stock trade has been In very healthy
condition at all times. Best lambs have
been selling up to 64 71 with good ones
at 16.60 and better. Good sheep have been
moving at 4.00"t.. wethers bringing the
high figures and ewes the low ones. In a
general way both sheep and lambs are
closing steady, yesterday's sales appearing
little different from those ot last week's

Apple Crop Conditions.
E. H.. Shepard, vice president ot the Hood
River Apple Growers' association, and one
ot the best posted authorities on apple
conditions in the Pacltlo northwest, is
making his first visit east primarily with
the view of studying conditions In the
several market centers and particularly in
New Yoik. Mr. rihepurd is a grower'' of
apples of many years' experience and be
lieves that the market is susceptible of
considerable development.
In speaking of tnls trip he said: "Ths
object of my viait in the east Is to see
what kind of apples are most wanted, and.
among others, to find out what we,, as
growers, should do to bring our fruit Into
great prominence, and' more general con
sumption. 1 visited the International Apple
Bhlppcr's convention In Niagara Falls, and
at the solicitation of Mr. Wagner ot Chicago,
the association's president, delivered an
address on grading and packing apples.
After the convention I visited the more
important growing and shipping sections
in New York state. From my observations
I should say that the crop will be good
and be of fine quality. The fruit la well
set on the trees.
"Out In the far west the conditions are
alto good. It looks now as though Oregon
and Washington will produce this season
at least 8,000 car loads of apples. The total
number of cars In California, Colorado and
Oregon and also Washington la estimated
about 20.000 car loads. The principal varie
ties grown, in the northwest are the New
tons and Spitbenbergs. In the Hood river
section we will have fully 600 car loads
this season, all varltles.
Steel Trnst Affairs.
The Steel Trust is eating up the orders
on Its books . at ths rate of more than
1,600 tons per diem. Wall Street regarded
this showing as quite satisfactory, which
throws significant light upon existing Ideas
ss to the state of the steel trade. The first
monthly report ever Issued by ths corpora
tion shows unfilled orders on hand at the
end of July of 8,970,931 tons, against 4,257,794
on June 80, - the decrease for the month
havtrg been, therefore, 286,K16 tons. The
shrinkage during the previous three months
wax 1,144,720 tons, or at the rata of SSL66O
tons per month, against 266,863 tons In July.
The monthly report affords no clue s tr
the percentage of capacity operated, a
point that might with advantage be dealt
with In these statements, since It Is the
avowed policy of the company to glva
the public the fullest Information possible.
