CHICAGO. July 12. -Corn prices today
soared to the topmost point so far this
season. Buying credited largely to a noted
speculator furnished the greater part of the
motive power. Higher figures were touched
tn the last fifteen minutes and there was a
buoyant close at an advance of o to lc
net. Latest figures showed wheat He up
to li-(jSc off, oats with VtfHc to 4o gain
and hog products varying from 24o decline
to a rise of 10c. '
Estimates purporting to make reasonably
certain 'a 10 per cent Increase of damage
to corn since July 1 had much affect tn
bringlnr about the bulge In the market
for that cereal. Many shorts were thus
led lnto a rush for cover. It was mainly,
however; owing to local assertions of a
widening area of damage that the course
of values headed for the senlth. The
total purchases made by the leader on the
bull side were alone said to be aggregating
$2,000,000 ' or more. During the seaalon the
September option ranged from 64e to 67c,
closing strong lo net higher at 67V067Xc,
Cash corn was firm. No. 2 yellow fin
ished, St 6&60.
Inrluenaed largely by the great bull dera
onstratlon In th corn pit, wheat gradually
hardened after an. early display .of weak
ness. Other factors that counted against
the bears were black rust rumors from
Minnesota, the pesslmlstto tone of the
North Dakota state report and a prediction
that Russian shipments would soon undergo
a rapid decline. September fluctuated from
Sla te B0o and In the end was ttc up at
8C. . .; . '
Oats more than recovered the lost ground
when Influential Interests took the buying
side. September high and low limits proved
to be 47H4To and 464o, with the close
V'iWftk!, a gain of o aver last night.
The provision prop was an out of town
demand for January options. At the final
gong .pork had Increased In cost 6o to 10c,
lard waa 2o off to 2l4e up and ribs were
dearer by 2o to 7ViB'10c

amounts, except thst Canatllan Pacific and
a few Inactive Industrials declined a point
Southern Railway waa an active feature
of the market. On the execution of a num

its lilKhest price of the year and within a
fraction of the top figure of lest yeer.
Speculative Interest centered largely on
United States Steel. That stock was sold
heavily In the early part of the session, but
seemed to be well absorbed. Particular
attention was directed to United States
Steel because of unconfirmed rumor that

CATTLE Receipts of cattle were sub
stantially the same as on yesterday, and
about the only change In the quality of
the offerings waa the Increased proportion
of half fat and grassy stuff. There was
little change In th general market, both
local packers and shippers taking bold
of the desirable, well fattened grades
freely at. fully steady prices and shading
values wherever possible on the medium
and common grades. There was not the
same snap and activity to the market
that there wse yesterday, but the cattle
kept selling and a very fair clearance was
effected some time before noon.
Demand for cows and heifers continues
broad, and while supplies were somewhat
more liberal than recently, the movement
waa reasonably active and good atuff ot
all kinds commanded fairly steady flg
urea. Stock cows and heifers have found
a better demand so far this week and
prloes have firmed up more os less and
the canning grades have also shared In
this improvement. In the main, however,
It was a good, steady trade and everything
changed hands In good aeason. Veal calves
were in liberal supply and weak, but bulls,
stags, etc., sold at steady to strong fig
ures. Improvement continues In the stocker
and feeder trade and there were a number
of country buyers tn the yards looking
for good stuff of alt weights. Compared
with the low time last week, values are
25$36c higher, and the tone to the trade
Is better than for some time back. Volume
of business, however, continues with mod
erate proportions, although a good clear
ance. Is made every day.

HoOti nehtsr managed to obtain anad
higher prices for the bulk -of hog receipts,
but It was uphill work to put anything
over the scales at nickel advances. Sales
ranged from steady to So higher, larger
drovjs costing only a little more than those
of yesterday. A reasonably broad demand
from all quarters was the main factor In
producing strength, but as soon as this
demand began to taper off,, the market
weskened, closing Just about steady with
About l'JO loads were received In all, of
ferings ranging from sklppy bacon grades
to well-flnlahed heavies. Animals weigh
ing from 200 to 36 pounds made up a large
portion of the run and quality was none
too attractive. This phase of receipts has
had ths natural result of merging spreads,
and the poorer kinds of light hogs are now
selling on much the same basis as good
It 0a V aWat
During the early rounds there waa a fair
degree of activity to the trade, but inquiry
late in the session was very quiet (Ship
pers called for a full 10 per cent of the
entire supply and selections consisted
largely of heavy butchers and good lard
loads. There was little or no demand of a
purely speculative character.
Yards were cleared ef bulk before 11
o'clock good heavies selling around 84 2t
and decent light moving at or near 8 Si.
Heat lights reached S6.42S. a split nickel
above yesterday's high price.
