GRAIN AND PRODUCE MARKET
Reports of Corn Deterioration Con
tinue to Come in.
MAKE PERSONAL EXAMINATION
Denlera Take Trip Through Belt In
Which the Crop la Groirtns; and
Find It In Poor Condition
OMAHA, Aug. 7, 1913.
There) were many reiterations of further
and pronounced losses In the corn belt
because of the Ions drawn out drouth re
ceived hero yesterday. Some of the com
mission men In the market have made
personal examinations of the growing;
corn In order to convince themselves of
Us actual progress.
Frederick Schneider, a member of the
Chicago Board of Trade, returned yester
day from a, trip through Iowa and north
ern Missouri and he says that conditions
could hardly be worse, and that those
who have not been over the fields can
not possibly realise the sensational losses
shown. In addition to this there were
many roports. received from the best au
thorities In the belt telling of total losses
of the corn crop.
The best Judges of conditions on the
farm are giving their attention to the bull
side of corn and thoy are backing up their
opinion with their money.
With the scattered showers of Tuesday
and yesterday It looked as If a complete
reversal of condition surrounding tho
corn market were about to be seen. The
lowest prices of the day, however, were
reached early in the session, when not
only the old time bull crowd, but those
who put out short lines early in the day,
as well as those who sold out their
long corn, entered the pit as buyers.
Cash corn was U6tto higher.
Wheat has displayed rather poor rally
ing power since the break of Monday,
yet corn pulled It upward WQc yester
day. Tho wheat market Is in anything
but a strong position at the present, be
cause of the poor cash trade, as only
10,000 bushels were sold at Chicago yester
day. Cash wheat was unchanged.
Traders endeavored to break the price
of oats yesterday, but they discovered
their efforts were Ineffectual. Cash oats
were Ho higher.

CHICAGO, Aug. 7. Information that

Rain scattered over tho northorn part
of tho belt with additional moisture pre
dicted for tonight and tomorrow inclined
many speculators to a bearish view of
the corn. Nevertheless all the offerings
were well absorbed, some of the larger
bulls becoming aggressive and adding to
their holding. The September option, In
which some leader is supposed to have
a big line, was especially tight at the
wlndup, after a series of rapid changes

NEV YORK, Aug. 7.-ManlpulatIon ot
a professional character, aided by such
factors as betterment In the Balkan sit
Uatlon and hopeful rains ovei some of
the parched agricultural centers ot this
country. Infused a measure of underlying
strength in today's stock market. The
movement as a whole, however, was so
irregular and spasmodic! as to carry little
conviction of public Interest, much levi
Politics played nn Part In tho day s af
fairs, although emergency notice ot the
currency commission of the American
Bankers' association for a meeting to act
on pending legislation at Washington
served as a reminder ot the attitude ot
that Influential organisation. The Mex.
lean situation continued to bo ignored,
with no movement In the shares ot tho
railway propertlcs'controlled by that gov
ernment No small part of tho further rise wns
made in the face of continued resistance
by the bear faction. Steel's advance to
Its best figure In some months was tho
more surprising, inasmuch as it disre
garded reports of price concessions for
certain finished products.
Tho effect ot the Improved crop outlook
was seen In the better tone of tho south
ern and southwestern railway share,
whllo Reading and Lehigh Valley, espe
cially the latter, probably owed their ri
eovery to excellent earnintr exhibits. St.
Lout A San Francisco also reported Very
good earnings, wltlch were reflected In a
smart rise in tno general bs.

DIES AFTER BEING IN BED

WELLINGTON, Mo., Aug, 7.-Thomas
F. Lockhart, after spending thirty-seven
years In bed practically In one. position,
today came to the death he for years
had prayed for. Lockharl'a joints were
ossified so that the only movements of
ot the body he could make were a
shrugglnrf o fthe right shoulder and the
mlddlo Joints, of two fingers on the right
hand. With this shoulder and finger
movement Lockhard had written an auto
biographical book which brought him
funds sufficient to purchase the home
here in which he died and to pay for a
nurse to care for him constantly.
Lockhart took to his bed Christmas
night, 1886, following a long ride through
a cold rain. He never left It One after
another his joints became useless until
his whole body was stiff as a board.

Will Start Preliminary
LONDON, Aug. 7. The second Balkan
peace conference having concluded peace
on a basis of compromise, which' la un
satisfactory to l states concerned ex
cept possibly Rumania, the question Is
being asked how soon a third Balkan
war will break! out.
Bulgaria has obtained under the agree
ment reached in Bucharest today, a con
siderable portion of northern Macedonia,
much more than the allies wero at first
Inclined to give it, and also about sixty
mller of the Aegean seaboard, which Trill
enable It to build its projected railway
from Phlllppopolla to the Aegean
Loss of Port Ilnrta Ilnlsrara.
Bulgaria, however, deeply resents being
deprived of Kavala, a port on Kavala
bay, which goes to Greece. Also It is
confronted with the task of expelling
the Turku from Adrlanople, It being clear
that the powers will do nothing In this
Bulgaria will seek to Introduce In the
peace protocol to be signed at Bucharest
tomorrow a reservation practically ap
pealing to the European powers for av sub
soquent revision ot the peace treaty.
BUCHAREST .Aug. 7. Peace wag con
cluded tonight between the Balkan states
nnd the preliminary treaty will be signed ' '
'omorrow by the delegates of Sorvta,
Greece, Montenegro, Rumania and Bul
garia. The, agreement was arrived at
only after another exhibition of the utter
helplessness of Bulgaria to face Its ring;
Wednesday the discussions tn the peace) ,
conference threatened to became Inter
minable, but M. Mojoresco, the Rums
nlan premier and president ot the con
ference, clinched matters by threatenlnr
that unless Bulgaria accepted the modi
fied frontier proposed by tho allies Ru
mania's army would occupy Sofia next '
Saturday. This threat had the desired
effect and an agreement wm arrived at
today after numerous private consulta
tions between tho delegates and a four
hours' sitting ot the conference.
The Ifew Frontier. ' .
Tho new frontier aa agreed to start
at a point on the old frontier west ot
tho Struma rivor, follows the water shed
to the west ot tho town ot BtrumnlUa.
thence runs almost through the Struma 1
valley' to tho Beleth mountains and
thenco easterly In almost a straight lino
to tho Mesta river, thus leaving the 1
town of Btrumnlts, the port ot Lagos and
Kanthl, to Bulgaria and the port ot ,
Kaval to Greece. The new frontier Is a
deep disappointment to the Bulgarians,
who still nurse hopes for Its eventual
revision by the powers.
It is believed that an agreement for
tho demobilisation of the various armies 'f
will be signed tomorrow. The news that
peace had bean arranged caused great
rejoicing here. 1
