THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: SEPTEMBER 1, 1912.
GRAIN AND PRODUCE MARKET
Trade looks for Big Accumulation
of Wheat by Tuesday.
CAE SHORTAGE AFFECTS TRADE
While Shipping Easiness In OmU Ha
Bern Large of Late, It U Small
In Proportion to the Slse
of the Crop.
OMAHA Aur. 31. 1912,
It was the popular thins after toe close
yesterday to ta.k bearish on wheat be
cause of the prospective big run from the
spring crop. They have been bulling
wheat for two weeks because the crop
did not move. The drop in cash wheat
premiums at Minneapolis was the most
natural thing in the world in the face of
the large receipts. No doubt there will
be a complete loss of the premiums In
that quarter today or early next week.
The trade will naturally look for a big
accumulation or wheat by Tuesday morn,
ing. Grain men are inclined to think the
trade here will attach too much impor
tance to the first big run of ppring wheat
and will get oversold. Because of the
long, wet period abroad foreigners may
want large quantities of dry wheat from
this side of the ocean, and it will not be
surprising if they buy on any sharp de
cline. It looked at the close yesterday as If
the local trade had overbought In corn
around the top prices, and when the re
action In wheat came there was an over
scelling. Some of the cool-headed leaders
replaced their lines on the breaks. The
situation in this trade has not changed
materially, with the new crop months at
an abnormal discount under September
and cash corn traders think this suggests
the buying side of the new crop months
on any forced setback. The car shortage
win have to be remembered, as the coun
try has a bumper crop and shippers may
find It difficult to fill sales to the last,
even for the early winter months. Okla
homa was offering new corn for Septem
ber and October shipments yesterday, but
cash people here do not look for much of
a movement in the new crop months for
While shipping business in oats has
been large of late, it Is so small in pro
portion to the size of the crop that they
have not made a dent in it yet. The
weakness in the September oats yesterday
was attributed to hedging sales. Export-
era said they were afraid to sell oats east
because of the scarcity of cars which
may prevent them from delivering enough
oats to fill sales already made, .

CHICAGO GRAIN AND PROVISIONS
Features of the Trading and Closing
Prices on Board of Trade,
CHICAGO, Aug. 3L-Selllng out by
traders who did not care to hold wheat
over two holidays made prices today
weak from the start. The lose was
within He of the bottom figures of the
session and lc to VAc under last night.
Corn showed a net loss of c to lZc and
oats a fall of c to c In " pro
visions the outcome varied from 10c de
cline to an advance of 7c.
In consequence of the break of wheat
prices, export business picked up some
what. Attention of speculators, how
ever, fixed Itself tenaciously on the fact
that primary receipts had reached
nearly double the total of a year ago
and that for lack of storage room wheat
at stations in western Kansas was be
ing piled on the ground.- December de
livery ranged between 92c and 94c, clos
ing l4c net lower, at 93o even.
Corn weakened owing to predicted
frost turning out to be a myth. Decem
ber fluctuated from 55c to 5W4&55c and
closed steady o off, at 665oc. Cash
grades were in fair demand. No. 2
yellow was quoted at 7980c.
Oats sagged with wheat and corn.
Outside limits touched for" December
were SiMc and 32c a net loss of c.
Provisions joined in the general weak
ness. Lard and ribs, however, raliisd
as a result of support from packers and
wound up at prices ranging from last
night's level to an advance' of 7c. In
the end pork was off 6c to 10c.

CATTLE There was the usual Satur
day's lack of cattle for the making of a
market today, there being nothing of
any consequence on sale. For the week
receipts have been quite liberal, being
about on a par with the two previous
weeks, but as compared with a year ago
there has been a falling off of almost
10,000 head. Receipts have consisted al
most entirely of range cattle with a com
parative small sprinkling of native grass
ers and corhteds.
Owing to tiie large receipts of cattle
and to a decrease in the consuming de
mand for beef, the market on fat steers
this week has shown a sharp decline.
Choice cornfeds have not changed so
much, but the general run of talr to
pretty good cornteds and western rangers
are 25c lower than last week. One in
fluence that helped to break the market
was the poor country demand for feed
ers as many cattle were left for packers
that would otherwise have gone to feeder
Cows and heifers broke very sharply
during the early part of the week, but
owing to light receipts and a pretty fair
olivine demand. th mat-bar firman un

parent that the country was not buying
win uio expeciea ireeaom, tne trade
became very slow and prices dropped
off rapidly, closing around 50c lower
on all but a few of the very best fleshy
feeders and yearlings. The poor buying
demand on the part of the country seemed
to be due entirely to a feeling that cur
rent prices were too high.

SHEEP-With the exception of about a
deck of native Iambs and ewes nothing
else arrived on the market and in conse
quence values remain practically th
same as yesterday. The ewes and lambs
sold at steady prices.
While the supply was liberal the first of
the week, there was a marked falling off
during the last days. On the whole the
receipts were no more than moderate,
as about 7,900 head more were marketed
last week and approximately 42,000 more
were yarded durng the corresponding
week a year ago. Packing Interests took
a large percentage of the offerings as a
good share of the stuff was Just fat
enough ' for killing and a little heavy
and too fat to suit the majority of feeder
buyers. Demand was good and trade
was generally active, a good clearance be
ing made on most days. At the close
very little change is apparent In th
prices of lambs from the and of last
week, rood to cho'ce heavyweteht w
and wethers selling all of 15ft25c
higher, while the fair to good kinds show
an advance of 1015c. Very little If any
difference Is quotable on yearlings.

TIMELY REAL ESTATE GOSSIP
Charles W. Martin Enters Business
STAND AEDIZE MORTGAGE FORMS
National President Jndd Suggests
t se of Blanks to Be Negotiable
at Any Bank Speaks Before
Real Estate Exchange.
Handsome offices in the Omaha Na
tional bank building have been established
by Charles W. Martin, formerly vice
president and secretary of the Norris &
Martin company In The Bee building. In
the new place he will continue alone with
a real estate, rental and insurance busi
ness. His former partner will continue busi
ness in The Bee, building under the firm
name of Norris & Norr'.s.
Mr. Martin is highly appreciative of
Omaha as a location for1 his real estate
business. Prior to the establishment of
his firm. Charles Vf. Martin St Co.. Mr.
Martin made a trip to the west coast.
In Portland, Ore., he made a study of
his line of business. Portland, he de
clares, is the liveliest real estate market
along the western const, but at that It
is far below Omaha In that line of busi
ness. Competition, he says, Is unusually
strong there and real estate prices are
abnormally high. And this runs along
with slow business.
Showing the difference in compet'tlon.
Martin points out that the Portland
telephone directory has l'sted 900 rental
firms. In the Omaha telephone directory

Joy Rides Furnished
With Marriage Lines
Rev. Charles W. Savidge, the "marrying
parson," united in wedlock two young
couples yesterday afternoon and at the
end of each ceremony treated the newly
weds to a joy ride In his automobile. In
cidentally the parson admits he exceeded
the speed regulations.
At 3 o'clock George Arnold and Clara
Barker of Council Bluffs called at the
Savidge residence to be married. They
forgot the license and the minister had to
take them to the court house to secure
one. He then tied the knot and hustled
them to the dpot In time for them to
catch a "honeymoon special" train.
When he returned to his home the
parson found another couple awaiting
him, and in a similar predicament as the
first two lovers. The same performance
was again gone through, and when the
finishing "touches" were put on. Rev. Mr.
Savidge looked at his watch and found
that he had married two couples, boosted
the business at the county Judge's officu
twice, acted as a taxi chauffeur twice and
cotlected a couple of fees all in one hour.

Advices from leading cities, both east
and west, with scarcely an exception,
speak of a bigger volume of trade, larger v
advance orders, better employment of
labor and a growing confidence that the
now practically assured crops make tho
future secure. In every part of the coun
try, business optimism is the rule and
til other considerations are practically
ignored In the conviction that a period
of national prosperity has set In which
only some great, and Improbable calamity
