CHICAGO GHAIV AND PROVISIONS
1'ratures off the Trading; and Closing:
Prices ou Board of Trade,
CHICAOO. Aug. 7. Fnurrled by worse
and worse reports about black ruat in
i.lunitoua the rtrneat market today made a
violent upward Jump. Closing prices were,
at nearly top ilgurea reached, to l&lSc
htgntr. Loin unlHhed a ahada to Wfla
up, oats oft ftiPHc and provialona at an ai
aucs of .-wuwo to 17i'uc.
louuy was the first tima that Canadian
autuunt is acknowledged the crop situa
tion to be serious concerning the black
rust In wheat. At Chicago the admission
caused less surprise, and excitement than
appeared to be the case at markets nearer
the sceno. There wt-re advices that North
Dakota ileitis, which had promised 'M
bushe.a an acre had shriveled to 8 bush
tls ih.s morning and that half of the
titmiiin huu become apparent within the
last i wo days. It was also stated thai
tiom Hreckenrldge, Minn., north" to tho
boundary line wheat had been damaged,
'i ho Kansas oftlclal report Indicating a
yield the smallest since 1899 was another
Imllleh influence In profit taking which
led to a reaction tor a while and ao
did comprehensive statements that the
shortage In' Kussla waa exaggerated. Ac
tive baying was renewed however, and
latd right up to the cloae. During the
day, September ranged from 924o to 93c,
cluaing steady, Vs'Hnc net higher at 93 c.
Oenurul rains weakened corn as com
pared with wheat. September fluctuated
between 6414 and 65c, with tba close ateady
at tH4,c, a net gain of Vic. Cash grades
were easy. No. if yellow finished at 64V4i
Light offerings took the snap out of
oats. September Taxied from 411e to 42,c
and In the end waa So down at 4ZVtc.
Liberal exports toned up provialona. The
result was an all around advance pork,

Market Shows Further Unsettlement
Daring the Day.
MORE ADVERSL CROP REPORTS
fapport Accorded Steel Sbarea Leas
Effect I re Thaa that Given to
Other Stocks In the
NEW YORK. Aug. 7. That the stock
market should have shown further un
settlement today was hardly surprising to
those who have watched the recent trend
! events. Week-end developments em
braced number of adverse crop reports,
some more unfavorable railroad earnings
including Bt. taul with a deficit for the
liscal year of 83.300,0i0 after payment of
fixed .charges and dividends, the harden
ing of discounts In London and affairs po
litical and Industrial at home.
The attitude of the Stanley Investigating
committee at last Paturcays session in
this city waa the subject of no little dis
cussion in the financial districts where the
opinion seemed to prevail that the United
Statea Bteel corporation may have to di
vorce from its transportation companies If
It Is to keep within the bounds of the anti
On the whole the support accorded the
steel sharea today was less effective than
that given to other stocks In the same
class. The stock was again sold principally
by brokers recently active on the "short
side." The bear account was Impartial,
however, lis attack on Union Pacific, Le
high Valley and Bt. Psul as well as many
Ishues of lesser Importance putting the
bull faction on .the defensive throughout
The strength of the Hill stocks, the cop
pers and some of the apeclalltes may be
explained on the ground that British price
levels before the recent decline rendered
ir.em less vulnerable to bear assaults.
Trading langulshd during the afternoon
until well toward the close when a buy
ing movement of some proportions sent the
list to Its top level. The recovery met wltn
some resistance and prices snaded from the
best here and there, but final quotation re
sulted In many substantial gains.
London was again observing a bank holi
day so the usual channels of market bro
kerage were closed there, but local houses
reported aome buying for that center.
The bond market was Irregular with total
sales par valua of 31,449,000. United States
government bonds were unchanged on call.
Number of aales and leading quotations
on stocks were as follows;

CATTLE Cattle receipts were very large
tine uivi utiis, tara Deing reponea in.
This Is the heaviest run of any day since
November 14. The receipts consisted very
largely of western catt.e, thers being more
angers In sight than any day so tar this
season. At the same time the offerings of
native cattle were lighter than has been
the case of late. With so many cattle In
sight it waa not surprising tnat buyers
were inclined to bear prices and that
their early bids were sharply lower on ail
kinds. At the same time sellers were not
prepared to make any concessions without
a hara fight and were Invariably holding
for steady or stronger prices. As a result
01 mis eany morning passed with almost
nothing being done and It was well along
toward midday before the trade was really
when buyers and sellers finally cot to

HOGS Hog supply dropped to ths lowest
level of the season, only forty-two cars
showing up. Not since the latter part of
March has the car record been less than
this estimate and only on two or three
previous occasions during the slack period
following New Year's did receipt dwindle
to less than 2,000 head.
A run of famine slse naturally . caused
a panicky scramble In buying circles and
yards were cleared In hurried fashion at
broad advances. Ths main market was a

load of weighty butcher or lard hogs
brought figures fully 15c and perhaps 20o

and northwest Nebraska and northwest
In the past the territory named has been
under ths Jurisdiction for legal purposes of
the Omaha legal department of the road
There have been two attorneys K. E

of the legal affairs of the road in Colo

Kansas, and E. T. Clark at Sheridan,
Wyo., In charge of Wyoming, South Da

Under ths present plan both of the at
