OMAHA. May tt. 1914.
The May wheat futures swung between
9T'y snd 95c yesterday, which was nar
row, when the open Interest In that
month la considered. The longa were not
Inclined to permit a runaway market, as
thev Mrnlahed the buyer with the grain
ns they bid for It May wheat was more
or less congested and with only four more
business days in which to even up their
position, short aro likely to make an
attempt to set out via the pit or private
pettlement before the close) Friday.
There Is no corner Intended by the largo
holders of the May wheat as comers arc
a thing of the past In the Chicago mar
ket. being knocked out by J. C F. Mer
rill several years ago.
The cash wheat situation, while quiet,
may be called strong. Advice were re
ceived hero yesterday from Interior itoo
tions of the southwest saying millers are
scouring the country for supplies and that
the old wheat will doubtless sell much
lower Tho transactions here yesterday
on milling account amounted to only
io.OOO biifhels. The deliveries on May con
tracts amounted to 290,000 bushels, show
ing that the wheat which was bought at
Kansas City and brought here by Uie
cleator concerns Is being used to oven
up tho position of some of those who sold
themselves Into a hole.
C 11. Jenkins, one of the leading millers
of Indiana and located at Noblesvllle, In
a, message to Paddleford, said the wheat
plant not only In that section of the
state, but elsewhere, according to his
advices, is deteriorating. Mr. Jenkins Is
on of the best posted men on crops In
the "Hoosler" state, and he can see
nothing but higher prices for the cash ar
ticle, as the bins of the farmers have
been pretty well cleaned out
The government June report will make
its appearance on the fth day of next
month, and, according to advices received
by B. Frank Howard, from tho Agricul
tural department at Washington, a par
of 19.5 is to be used In figuring It. It the
decline In condition should reach 90 per
cent, the approximate yield would bo 621,
000,000 bushelf, and it the condition Is un
changed the yield would be 0)1,700,000
When the bearish conditions surround
ing the corn market are considered, that
grain held well. The more favorable
weather In the Argentine caused freer
offerings In the pIL Not only were longs
sellers ot corn, but there wcro short lines
put out. World'a shipments were smaller
than comparative periods; In fact, there
were decreases In nearly all the routine
statistics, Including the visible supply, as
well as stocks hold In the regular eleva
tors at Chicago, The cash trade was
alow at 160.000 bushels.
The market for oats opened higher and
closed strong at fair advances. Tho In
creased complaints of dry weather
throughout tho belt wero tho principal
bullish Influences, Cash sales wcro small.
The heavy hog run at the yards ami
decline in price was tho leading help
favoring the bears. 1 'ackers offered
moderately. The demand came from
shorts. Cash trade in meats was reported
as only fair
Cash wheat was Ho lower.
Cash corn was UWlko lower.
Cash oats wore unchanged.

hot weather caused stock to take on a
heavy fill and all classes of buyers weru
inclined to await developments and lot
tho cattle shrink na much m noHalbla.
Strictly desirable yearlings and the best
of the hoavy cattle were peaked up in
fairly Hood season at not far from steady
tlHUres, but on tho goneral run of cattlu,
until heavy and light, bids were wesJt tr.
a ulmo lower than Monday and the bulk

John Redmond Says
Division Equivalent
to Passage of Bill
LONDON, May 26Wohn B. Redmond,
the Irish nationalist leader, In c state
ment tonight says the division In tie
House of Commons Is equivalent to the
passage of the home rule bill Into law.
Today's division," .Mr. Redmond con
tinued, "marks the death after an In
glorious history of the 114 years of foo
union of Pitt and Castlercagh. Its place
is to be taken by a new union founded
on mutual respect and good will between
the two islands."
The nationalist leader asserted that
"only two eventualities, both of them im
possible, could prevent the bill from be
coming a statue within a few weeks
the first, that the parliamentary section
should come to nn abrupt end; second,
that the House of Commons should go
mad and decide not to submit the bill
for royal assent both as absurd con
tingencies as the suggestion that the
king would withhold his assent."
