Pacific Points Axe Exporting Large
Quantities of Wheat and Flour.
Show Sluggishness at Beginning; of
Market, but Are Strengthened
by Wlf4it and Prior Are
OMAHA. Sept. 21, 1914.
Reports reached the trade here yester
day that Pacific coast points have hern
exporting wheat on (Ul enormous scale In
the last few days, and this news was a
biff factor In rallying the market. The
Seattle correspondent ol one of the Ms
locsl houses wired that he had It on Rood
authority that 5,O0O,O"O bu. of wheat had
been sold for export from Portland in the
last week, and as much more from Ta
rnma and Seattle. This report followed
up early claims of liberal flour and wheat
loading at the Pacific coast for Ureatdus., 90c; ducks, full feathered HJc; geese,
Hritaln. and it is evident that foreigners
are buying to an advantage In that terri
tory and on an unusually large scale,
little export business In wheat was re
ported from the Atlantic coast yester
day, but exporters at Winnipeg were do
ing a large business .which gave the tocal
trade the Impression that the foreign de
mand will soon be diverted here. tt.
Iiouls reported a good export business in
flour. No local export business was re-
ported, but vessel room for 400,000 bu. of
wheat was chartered here yesterday at
15T1M.C to Buffalo. I
The wheat market here ruled wean
most of the day, bracing up In the latter
rart of the session. It was an uninter
esting trade, with the usual flurries Inci
dent to war time and war time nerv
ousness. Weather conditions were favor
able for the movement of grain In the
spring wheat country, but farmers up
there are reported to be storing their
grain to a greater extent than recently.
8tocks of wheat northwest are rapidly
piling up.
Trading In corn futures was dull, but
late strength In wheat carried prices up
substantially from the bottom and rest
in spots were about steady with pre
vious closing figures. The early selling
had apparently been overdone, shorts
taking too much stock In the market
effect of a verv poor spring trade and the
lact that the New F.ncland resellers were
tin ersell ng anyt ling that cju:d be quoted
Irom here. . .
Oats also rallied In the final hour and
closed a shade better than Tuesday. The
market was under much hedging pres
sure in the fore part of the session, and
there was also quite persistent local short
selling. Export business was curtailed by
financial stringency- at i"
has been the mot active buyer recently,
snd only 50,000 bu. were reported ao d
from here. In addition about 100,000 bu
.ash oats sold for shipment. There were
also rumors that BOO.OOO bu. oats so d from
here late yesterday for export, going out
vis Montreal. ,-,,
Provisions were Irregular. The
ness In grains and decline In hog values

holders, but good buying developed on
the slump, presumably by packers, and
the market rallied.

CHICAGO, Sept 24. Assertions that
Canada would be likely to undersell the
Fnlted States from now on In the wheat
trade with Europe had a bearish effect
today on prices here. largely In conse
quence the market t-iosea neavy ai
lc net decline, corn tinisned ic un
der last night, oats on uio ana pro
visions Irregular, varying from a setback
of 55c to an advance of 2c.
One of the leading Chicago authorities
regarding wheat was quoted as declaring
that Canadian supplies were now avail
able for export at a cheaper rate than
seemed to be possible In the I'nited States
and that as a result the Transatlantic
call for domestic hard winter grades was
virtually certain to diminish here and
elsewhere. Competition by Canada, it
was contended, would be felt the most
between the present time and the close of
navigation on the great lakes.
Corn fell with wheat. The fact that the
weather was extremely favorable for ma
turing the new crop tended to place the
bulls at a disadvantage. Sales of oats
were the smallest In weeks. Export bids
were said to be numerous, but not on a
working basis.
Much stop-loss selling of pork and ribs
took place during the last hour. The un
loading was done by tired-out longs. A
fair cash demand, howover, held lard
comparatively steady.

quotable change was reported In the mar
ket for spot coffee today. Cost and
freight offers from Brazil were steady at
about the recent figures, but there was
continued confusion with reference to war
risks, as nothing was heard from the
steamer now some five or six days over
due, and very little business was reported
for Brazilian shipment. Demand for cof
fee from local Blockers has improved
somewhat, but quotations showed con
tinued Irregularity, with a tendency to
ward a further readjustment of low
grade values. Rio 7s were quoted at about

CATTLE "Receipts this morning were
fair for a Thursday, and It was fortu
nate that they were no larger. Receipts
this week have been heavy, amounting"
to 82.763 for the four days, and although
smaller than a year ago by 1,000 or more
head the supply has been fully equal to
the demand, hence buyers were not es
pecially hungry for cattle this morning.
The best beef steers were In fair re
quest at prices that were steady with
yesterday. On the other hand the me
dium to commoner kinds were slow to
lOo lower, and It was late before a clear
ance was effected. Good killing cows
and heifers were slow to a little easier
than yesterday, but the canner grade
did not show much change.
The best feeders were steady, or not
far from steady, while other grades were
slow and as much as 10c lower.

HOGS-Today's receipts were almost as
large aa ytslerdsy's and with something
like ten loads held over the fresh suppl es
of eighty-three cars, or 6. 300 head, gave
buyers a comparttllt'ely liberal shotting
to pick from. The week's total of 18.75
head Is nearly 5,rw larger than a week
ago, but still shows a shortage of about
1.609 head as compared with the corre
sponding days last year.
Fresh declines were reported from
other points this morning, and when local
packers started bidding prices that were
a big dime lower a good many sellers
thought It high tint to cut loose. Quite
a number of hogs sold early on a 10c
lower basis, but general' movement was
slow, and when allies strengthened up
later In the forenoon there was a good '
share of the offerings still unsold to re
ceive the benefit of the Improvement.

were undoubtedly lower, but owln to
the raggednrss of the trade during the
last two days It Is Impossible to make
anything like accurate comparisons on
shipping grades. Today's top of 88.75 Is
a dime lower than yesterday, and while
mis is a poor criterion. It Is safe to say
that shippers show at least as much de-
ellne as other grades, that Is, 56' 10c.

SHEEP A very moderate supply, an
active market and about steady prices all
around on both sheep and lamba would
about cover the situation In the sheep
barn this morninc. Other markets re
ported slow trade and in some Instances
an easier tendency to prices. The receipts '
were estimated at X2.M0 head, making for
the week to date 136,S.:9 head, being 48.427
more than last week, but 10,070 short of
the corresponding time a year ago. Aa on
Wednesday, today's receipts Included no
choice killers of any kind, consequently
prices did not reach aa high as the quo
tations. Trade was all over In good sea
son with the bulk of the lambs going to
thn packers around $7.25.
The feeder demand was lust fair and the
receipts of feeders light Prices were gen
erally ateady with yesterday. The bulk of
the best grades of feeder lambs went to
the country at a range of 6.75j7.I0, with
some carrying a little flesh at $7.107 2i.
The common to medium grades, Including
culls, were picked uu around $6.2b4ii.75. it
might be added that on yesterday's mar
ket, while the best feeder lambs beld up
about steady, the less desirable kinds
were a dime lower and In some cases slow
Slslng up the general situation for the
week the receipts have been liberal and
fat lambs show a decline ot 75c from last
Friday, and mutton offerings half a dol
lar Feeder Iambs have also been In lib
eral supply with, the best lamba being
P?15c cheaper than a week ago and the
common to medium grades-l&wz&e lower.
There Is still a scarcity of aged feeders
and on account of this prices on them are
as high as ever or steady With a week

LONDON. Sept. 24 -Two squadron of
nrlttsh naval airmen made a daring raid
yesterday from Belgium sgalnst th Ger
man 7-eppelln airship bases at Dusseldorf
and Cologne.
The attack upon Pusseldorf wa offi
cially reported as having been successful.
Lieutenant C. II. Colle dropped three
bombs there on a Zeppelin shed, sweeping
down to within 400 feet of his target.
One Attnek Falls.
The attack on Cologne apparently failed
of Its object, as the official announcement
falls to mention it. An Antwerp paper,
however, says that four bombs fell on the
Zeppelin ctmp at Plckerdorf and set flra
to the hangars.
The sqadrons making the raid Into Ger
many are believed to have consisted of flvo
aeroplanes, with a navigator sad n as
sistant In every machine. Th novel x
.pedltlon started from an unmentloned
base. The weather was misty, which as
sisted In the secrecy of the air fleets'
approach to the Intended scene of opera
tion. Mitch May Hare Resulted.
It I thought In some o'role that th
weather condition may have caused a
hitch In the schedule of the aeroplane
nd that It I possible the two bombs
which were dropped on the Dutch town of
Maastricht, near the German boundary,
from a mysterious air craft mey have
come from one Of the British fliers. ' No
fr.talitlea resulted, from the explosion In
Maastricht. '

who appear to he numerous and adroit.
A resident of Maubeuge who has Just
escaped from that town says that that
city during the siege wa full of secret
German 'agent. The French discovered
a subterranean telephone which was being
used by a German emissary 'to Inform the
German officers of the French disposi
tion. Every sort la of the garrison failed
because the Germans war ready, appar
ently having been forewarned.
