, . OMAHA. May 17. 1913.
According to ndvlres from thu agri
culture bureau at Washington, a par of
nineteen bushels per acre will bo used In
making tin the June crop report com
pared with a par of 1S.1 for May. A
Pr of 19 bushels on acreage of 30,8,OOO
wllllndlcato a winter wheat crop of B4W,
C21.000 bushels, provided the condition Is
as high as that of the report which
was Issued this month. There hat been
very little wheat killed from any cause
and the abandoned an ease Is small. The
present condition rrn hardly be surpassed
and, as an old tun cash handler put It
yesterday, a bis mrlng wheat crop,
such waa mist m ihii, together with
the prospective nil, ter wheat crop, would
be against tlio farmers of tho United
States Instead of in their favor. An over
production of any grain means much
lower prices and conditions favoring the
buyer right along.
As was put by Charles B. Lewis, the
Minneapolis grain man, yesterday, two
thirds of the wheat crop In the north
west the coming season would place the
market conditions in the hands of farm
ers, and that the grown a would be en
titled to secure al least fair prices. Mr.
,Lwls wild that an over-production In
the northwest, with the blir eroD oroinlin
In the southwest, would cause geimral
and pronounced price setbacks In the en
May -wheat was partloulorly strong yes
terday and. it showed a gain of nne cent
for the "day. This strength was the re
sult of considerable Jirieaelness on the
part of shorts and the fact that tlje of
ferings wcrf held tightly made It neces
sary for those wanting that option to bid
up for IL Cash .wheat was lie iuwlt
Conditions in the corn market showed
that bears have put out nioro short corn
than they are nblu to- 'take care of.
These conditions win force them to cover
at tosses ana it win aouiiuesi maxo tnem
moresutlQUs-oix the-selltng side. While
the cash, sales yesterday were moderate
at 15.000 muhel. there were Indications
of renewal of eastern demand, as the
grain which went forward at the opening
of navigation .has been .fairly well ab
sorbed mid holders In the country are
not innllned tb sell their cash- corn on

Cash corn was Utile lower.
May oats were 'quite strong yesterday
because of small offerings, coupled with
a moderate demand. Tin-re was a big
trade In oats, with h general rush to
buy all options, which gave them an un
easy feeling .
Cash oats were unchanged.

CATTLE No cattle of any conscquenco
wero reported In the yards today and
there was absolutely nothing upon which
to base an estimate' of the market, but
this Is the usual condition on a Saturday,
For tho week receipts at this point have
been very light, being the smallest for a
good many weeks back, but, still, about
on a par with receipts for the correspond
ing week or fast year.
With receipts lighter, there was a
ratural upward tendency to the market,
but, tlttll. there was a lack of snap and
life to the trade throughout the whole
veek. It is very apparent that requiro
m6nts of buyers have not been suf
ficiently urnent to cause them to buy
with any great amount of freedom. As
a result of this prioes during the week
have advanced only 10015c, In, spite ot
the fact tbat receipts were so tight.
Cows and heifers have shown the same
advance as beef steers, being 10915c
highor for the week, but the trade has
been slow and dull.
Stock cattle have been scarce, but, still,
the demand has been so light that the
market has had an easier tendency.
Feeders have also been in poor demand.
and most of the warmed-up cattle that
in weeks past were going to feeder
buyers have, during this week, gone to
killers. The general run of stock cattle
and feeders Is around 60a lower than at
the beginning of the month.

HOGS A fair sized supply showed up
tills morning, but the demand was lively
from the outset and values registered an
advance of fully 6 cents. The demand
was not limited to any one grade of
stuff; in fact, it seemed as though tho
Inquiry was more eager on the close than
at any other time. Shippers bought
rather freely, some good lights selling as
high as $8.10. The bulk of the sales landed
at $8.2508.35, with $8.30 the most popular
price. Practically everything had been
sold before 9 o'clock.
The trade has been In fairly satisfac
tory shape all week. Owing to the sharp
drop on Monday the net advance amounts
to no mora than a big nickel, but with
the exception of tho one day values have
gone steadily upward. The demand has
been extra good all week, and wheil the
generous receipts are taken Into consid
eration, the strong tone to the trade is
still more noticeable. While the bulk Is
Just about a nickel higher than last
Saturday, tops are a flat dime higher.
This is due largely to the Improvement
In the shipping demand.
Today's receipts totaled about 102 cars,
or C.764 head, bringing the total for the
week up to 68,300. This Is over 6,000 head
.J&Z th?n week 080 atld mr than
