identity opposite to his first infor
mation, dropped from his coat pocket
to the tloor ot the court room, result

found to contain an emphatic re

been bearish on December and May
corn, but they have changed and now
they are predicting that for these
months the cereal will be much high
er. Some of them arc even talking
dollar corn, due to the fact that crop
reports indicate an enormous short
age throughout the entire southwest
and in most of the corn-growing area
east of the Mississippi river.
Omaha grain dealers assert that the
conditions of two years ago are cer
tain to be repeated and that with the
splendid corn crop that is assured for
Nebraska this market will be flooded
with buyers from the south, the
southwest and the east. At this time
cash corn on the Omaha market is
selling at 79;481 cents per bushel,
an advance of several cents during
the last week.
PRICE UP 1 TO 2 CENTS!
Another red letter day was marked
up at the Omaha Grain exchange.
Wheat advanced 1 to 2 cents and sold
at $1.46(0)1. 49)4. Corn, however, un
der heavy offerings, ruled from '
cent lower to Vi cent up, selling at
79!-i8 cents. The first of the
new oats put in an appearance and
its excellent quality forced the mar
ket up Yi cent to 1 cent. The ruling
price was 424-? cents per bushel.
There has seldom been a day when
the demand for wheat for export was
greater. During the early morning
300,000 bushels were sold for export
through New York, and a little later
150,000 bushels through gulf ports. It
all goes out carrying the Omaha in
spection, obviating the necessity of
any further inspection. The wheat
receipts were 178 carloads and the
shipments almost as great.
A feature of the Omaha option
wheat market was the fact that New
York buyers were taking the grain
for export at prices 9V5 cents above
the Chicago price, for December de
livery, this price being on the basis
of $!.47'j per bushel for cash wheat.
