OMAHA. Aug 1 WI4.
Many of the strongest men In the wheat
trade are thought to be luletly, but per
sistently accumulating good sized lines of
wheat. Thl fact was demonstrated yes
terday In the atrength in the May as a
reflection of the growing belief that the
market will show great atrength and
valuta are advancing sharply during the
present crop year.
There were price galna In wheat yes
terday of lVH'ec and fluctuatlona were
sharp and continuous. Foreign grains
! led In the strength and were followed bv
wheat Crop advices from western Can
ada aa well aa from eur own northwest
were unfavorable. There were rumors
from the eaat that there Is a possibility
of the cessation of all naval oppoalMot;
10 Ultimate shipments of wheat from this
country to western Kurope. The declara
tion of war bv England against Germany
Is believed In most circles to have cut
off the exportation of all breadstuff aa
well as Provisions for a time at least.
The blockade of wheat at gulf porta has
diverted some of tree grain In Chicago
and Kansas City sold SOO.OUO, but to oome
Cash sales of wheat were small at IS, 000
btikhela, and thla wae taken by millers.
Strength of a pronounced character was
alao displayed by the corn market yester
day, prices at the finish showing gains
f 1f lt,c over previous renting spots. The
bulge In wheat naturally had some In
fluence, but the market owed most of Its
advance to the United States crop advices
and strong cash situation However, the
rain was not deemed sufficiently general
to help greatly and It Is evident that the
crop is steadily deteriorating.
Apparently, there Is almost a corn
famine In the east, and shipper were
active buyer today. Cash corn sold at
an advance of tYaAc and sales were re
ported at W.0O8 bushels.
More activity and much strength fea
tured the trading In oats yesterday. Ad
vancea of !2S" were established and
market finished right at the top. There
waa a large volumu of new outalde buy
ing, presumably on the theory that thj
time to buy is when tb movement Is on,
especially with the general feeling that
with corn a short crop, oats around pres
ent prices are good property. There was
a big demand for caali oats at lHc to SSc
advance, with sales close to 600,000 bush
els. Provisions scored some remarkable ad
vances yesterday, with the packers and
snorts bidding. Pork and ribs were strong;.
witn late demand stimulated by reports
that packers had sold 6.000.000 pounds of
meats to the British government Reports
were aiso in circulation that tb packers
had withdrawn offers on all product
suitable for exnortlna.
Wheat was lc to $o higher.
Com was lo to lc higher.
OrU were lHc to lo higher.
Clearances of wheat and flour were
equal to I7t,000 bushels; corn, 2.CU0 bushels;
oats, 2,000 bushels.
Primary wheat receipts were 1.RJ1.000
bushels, and shipments 1,77,000 bushels,

CHICAGO, Aug. C On a udden flurry,
but unaccompanied by any heavy trad
ing, the wheat market today In th De
cember and May option ran up to th
n.s nest prices of the year. Before any
extensive profit taking could be accom
plished, however, quotations had dropped
back and the market closed weak at a
point hilvKo above last night. Th only
basis for the brief stampede appeared
to be a report that some wheat had been
aold here today to bo to Montreal. Corn
wound up lVAo nlgher, oats with a
gain of VtCHc and provisions at 27MC4?
Optimistic cable cam from Liverpool
and London Implying a better prospect
regarding the moving of grain, but were
haxy in Important detail, so much that
some seaboard owners of wheat made
attempts to resell in Chicago houses at
several cent under September contract.
On th other hand a rise in cash wheat
at southwestern markets offset talk of
th railroads making emergency rates to
bring wheat back from the gull to north
ern terminal centers.
Th extreme jump in wheat today,
though only momentary, waa 4c above
last night At th apes. May touched
L074 a bushel.
Nothing occurred to stop th bullish
ness that ruled th corn market. Re
ceipt her dropped to forty-one car,
and It waa laid that estimates on th
Illinois yield had been reduced 82.000.vu0
bushels in July. Scattered showers and
promise of mor In the drouth region
exerted only a transient Influence on
th bear side. Oats reflected th strength
of corn, but trading lacked breadth.
Hope of a big demand soon from
Europe lifted provisions. The action of
.Denmark In prohibiting export led to a
belief that Great Britain especially would
call on packer here for unusually large
supplies. Remarkable scarcity of hog
teoalpt throughout the west counted
also In bringing about an almost record

CATTI.K RecelDta were
onlv. 68 cars being reported In at
thl point, with 23 car out of that num
ber feeder that wer on their way to
Colorado and not offered for al at thl
point. In other words, there were only
35 car of cattle on sale. For the week
receipts amount to 8,821 head, beln
smaller then a year ago ky over fl.Oiio
head, and the smallest of ny recent
week alnce three weeka ago.
All other point wer also lightly up
plied, and for that reason there w a
better feeling on the market at thl
point. Buyer all eemed to want few
and th meager offering were cleaned
up In a very hort time at price that
all looked to be strong to 10a higher than
yesterday. The beat yearling beef ataera
sold up high a $8.70, there having
been very little change In the best besves
compared with last week. Cow and
heifers were In such light aupply that
th few her sold in -some case almost
high a laat week, but aa a matter
of course no one can fenn a very clear
Idea as to what the market might have
been had receipts been larger. The few
atockera and feeder alo gold quit
freely at stronger figure.
Advice from Chicago and tho east ar
till very unsettled and the market at
that point far from aatlsfactory. Yea-
terdar th Chlcaao TiaDers Quoted th
trade as vary slow, with packers staying
out of the market until midday, exoept
In the cue of a few choice beevea.
Butcher stock selling to the packers waa
actually 10lSo lower, according to the
Chicago papers, so that th situation at
that point la not vary encouraging, and
nothing la to be mad by shipper pass

HOGS A good, strong shipping and
speculative demand showed up this morn
ing, and wlUi packers bidding a little bet
ter than steady It wa comparatively
eaay matter for ahlppeie to clean up
practically all of the light receipts at
price that were unevenly higher, the d
vnc being quoted aa anywhere from a
dime to 2oc over yesterday's packer trade.
Packer managed to get a very few loads
at price that were about lOu higher, but
as was stated before, ll wa almost en
tirely a shipper market. Hogs were aold
II th way from $7 10 to $t li. th latter
figure being the highest paid, and the
tuust of th talcs lauded around $7.v
I W. Owing to the tinevenness, the aver
age la rather undeiendahla proposition,
and with htvga selling at such a wide
range it Is not very reliable, but It la
safe to quote today's general trade
Movement at fnlrly active nt times,
and a clearance wits made In good sesaon.
On the surface conditions were nesrer to
normal than they have been for a week,
but with the rerelpta ao light and shippers
buying most of the hogs. It Is very hard
to say whether or not killer have aban
doned their bear tactics. There were
really not enough hoga here to test the
packing market, and none of the killers
seemed very anxtooa to take chance of
tuning a wtld-flre market by coming
Into direct Competition with th ehlpner.
It Is sate to say, though, that conditions
are becoming more settled every day.

against t.v a week ago and 18.01 on the
same dny a year ago. making for the

Inst week, 4.(M two weeka ago and 71, ss
tor tho corresponding daya laat year. Chi
cago had another light supply today:
so had the other western markets which
fact favored the selling Interests here.
While the quality of the offerings yester
day waa better than on the Drevlous dava
of the week ami better than on any dnv
laat week, today uualltv In ceneral waa
atlll better, the bulk of th lamb offerings;
being on the choice order.
Tho light tecelpt at all market last
week and the light receipts at Chicago
and other Missouri river points this week
have enabled the local seller to dlepoe
of a liberal run here to a good advantage,
thla being again the ease thla morning.
Th packer hav tried hard to keep th
lid on. but failed again today, as-the
bulk of the lamb crossed th So line,
there being several load at $3 10 and ten
care of choice Idaho latnba at $8.25, with
a very light sort at that. The lamb at
$8 26 were purchased by an outalde buyer.
The range on lamb sale wna from $7.90
to $26. There wae aunther scarolty of
feeding lambs and the demand continued
strong, th only ale of Importance being
some few hundred head of lamb t $7.00.
