OMAHA, Aug. 31. 1911
It was the popular thing after the close
yesterday to talk bearish on wheat be
cause of the prospective big run fiom 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 ot
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 of wheat by Tuesday morn
injr. Gialn men are. Inclined to think ths
trade here will attach too much Impor
tance to the first trig run of spring 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 U
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 sugKts
the buying side of the new crop months
on any forced setback. Trie car shoitage
will have to be remembered, a the coun
try has a bumper crop and snippers 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
some time.
While shipping business in oats has
been large of late, it Is so small in pro
portion to the slxe of the crop that they
jhave not made a dent in It yet. The
weakness in the September oats yesterday
was attributed to hedging sales. Export
ers said tiicy 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.

Prices Board of Trade.
CHICAGO, Aug. Sl.-Selltn out by
traders who did not care to hold wheat
over two holidays made prices today
weak from the start. The close was
within 1c of the bottom figures of the
eenion and lo to 114c under- last night.
Corn showed a net loss of 'c to c and
oats a fall of H&c to o. In pro
visions the outcome varied from 10c de
cline to an advance of 7Hc.
1 la 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 9214c and S4c, clos-
' inn 114c net lower, at V3o even.
Corn weakened owing to predicted
front turning out to be a myth. Decem
ber fluctuated from 55c to t&i)c and
cloned steady So off, at SSCwVsC Cash
grades were In fair demand. No. 2
yellow was quoted at 7ho4c.
Oats sagged with wheat and corn.
Outside limits touched for Iecember
were 32'4c and S2io, a net loss of 14c.
Provisions joined In the general weak
ness. Lard and ribs, however, rallisd
as a result of support from packers and
wound up at prices ranging from last
night s level to an advance of Vfrc. In
the end pork was off fa 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 gross
er and cornfeus.
Owing to the large receipts of cattle
aad 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 fair to
pretty good cornteds and western rangers
are 25o 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
tnat wouia otnerwise nave 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
buying demand, the market firmed up
later on, so that at the close It is if
anything a little stronger than ono week
Speculators and yard traders were very
free buyers of stockers and feeders dur
ing the early part of the week and the
market was strong and active at the
beginning. Later on as it became ap
parent that the country was not buying
with the expected freedom. ' the trade
became very slow and nrices dmm..ri
off rapidly, closing around 50c lower-
on an oui a lew 01 tne very best fleshy
feeders and yearlings. The Door buvine
demand on the part of the country seemed
10 ue uue entirely to a reeling that cur
rent prices were too high.

HOG8-A few bogs sold to shippers and
speculators at the opening of the m.rM
at prices steady with yesterday, but a
i.iko ir m uie morning ouik of the
supply went into the hands of the pack
ers fully 610o lower and in some in
stances 10c lower on light mixed grades,
lacker buyers were very bearish and
rthe end a very fair clearance of the of-
lermxa was maae in good season. Some
good light hogs weighing' around 225
pounds brought $8.40, top price for tho
day and 16c below yesterdaVa hirh murw
There was a fair supply on sale at about
iicau anowea up at tne yards, be
ing slightly larger than a week ago. The

about 10i5o over prloes prevailing at the
end ot last week. Today's top price is
Identically the same as last Saturday.

else arrived on the market and In conse
quence values remain practically the
same as yesterday. The ewes and lambs
old at steady prloes.
While the supply was liberal the first ot
the week, there was a marked falling off
during the last days. On the whole the
rlKf . " , n,or than moderate,
as about 7,900 head more war m.Hr.tJt
last week and approximately 43.0UO more
were yarded during the corresponding
week year ago. Packing Interests took
m iercenire 01 me oilerings as a
good share of the stuff was Juat tat
enough for killing and a littl. h-..
and toe fat to lult 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 tha
prices of lambs from the end of last
week, good to cho'ce heavyweight ewes
ana wemers veiling ail of 15ff2Eo
higher, while the fair to good kinds show
an advance of 1 OS 15c Very little if any
difference is quotable on yearllnsra.
Owing to a small , proportion of the

A glance at the contents of the September 8th issue: ,
Speaker of the House of Representatives has written
"Presidential Lihts That Have Flared and Failed" '
An able and scholarly retrospective of the many great men who have failedof
the highest gift within the power of the people and why.
Speaker Clark's comprehensive review of Presidential Campaigns from the days
of Washington to those of Taft is written with an intimate knowledge of traditions and
conditions. He 'writes with a master hand from a mind stored with historical anec
dotes and illustrations, and from a vividly recent personal experience.
This is the first of two notable articles by Speaker Clark that will appear in the
magazine section of this newspaper. The second article, "ROUGH ROADS AND
ROUGH RIDING TO THE WHITE HOUSE," will be published In the next issue of
utm kJ Waa Wl Mi illiWin it
Base ball comes next to politics in popular interest at this season, .and the artiole
ase Ball-For What's in it
shows how the national sport has developed into a great national business a trust for
supplying honest base ball to the people of the United States. - The facts are new, and
many'of the figures given are startling.
"Hoohgwe, The Sun-Daughter"
A gripping romance of Indian life in the Southwest, is the strong fiction feature
of the issue and is vividly illustrated by Maynard Dixon.
"THE WIDOW WREN," a cleverly written story of an elderly wooing, by Min
nie Barbour Adams; a remarkable prose-poem entitled "PRAYERS," by Margueritte
0. B., Wilkinson, strikingly illustrated by Frank Booth. v
: The cover design entitled "THE PIRATE," by W. G. Krieghoff, in two colors;
emblematical of the summer girl burying her treasure of captured hearts at the end of
the vacation season. - ' ,
