Wheat Prices Make Jump of Eleven
Cents On Omaha Grain Exchange
Soar Early on the Report of
Heavy Buying for Export
Trade Orders Filled
on Nebraska Grain.
REACTS 4 CENTS AT CLOSE
The Omaha grain market was a
regular whirlwind and prices changed
with such startling rapidity that trad
ers could scarcely keep track of them.
, As a result, there were no fortunes
made or lost. Deals in futures were
light, yet the cash sales were heavy.
On the floor of the Omaha Grain
exchange, wheat bumped along to
ward the $2 mark, touching $1.81 for
cash, a net gain of 11 cents over the
high price of Tuesday. The low was
$178, 2 cents better than the high of
the previous day. The advance of
the day was figured at 9 to 11 cents
per bushel. Prices eased off toward
the close of the session, but higher
prices are looked for.
The cause of the sharp advance in
wheat prices was attributed to almost

QUOTATIONS CRASH DOWN
Chicago, Oct 25. War-torn Europe
succeeded, at least temporarily, today
in accomplishing what all the embargo
agitation In the United States had
heretofore failed to effect the stop
page of the wild wheat advance, which
has been in progress virtually un
checked for nearly four months. After
the market here made a fresh jump of
7 cents today, Europe not only stopped
buying, but turned aggressively to the
selling side and forced a setback that
offset the greater part of today's up
turn in prices.
Sudden withdrawal of British gov

most simultaneously the enthusiasm

stand the shock of word that foreign
ers were reselling their holdings, both
for immediate and future delivery.
. Quotations Crash Down,
As some of these' holdings had been
acquired only yesterday, at prices
nearly 13 cents below today's top
level, the bearish influence on the mar
ket was electrical. Quotations came
crashing down, and at no time during
the remainder ot trading was there
any lasting rally. The close was un

THE BEE: OMAHA, THURSDAY, OCTOBER
a complete crop failure in Argentina
and to the further fact that England,
it was reported, late Tuesday night
closed a deal for 2,350,000 bushels of
wheat, 1,000,000 bushels of oats and
240,000 bushels of corn. Of this pur
chase, it is asserted that Omaha is
supplying something over 1,000,000
bushels, the bulk being wheat, and
wheat that was bought around $1.25
and $1.J0 per bushel.
The big sales of wheat on the
Omaha exchange were made early
in the session and consequently the
holders reaped the big profit. The
reaction, when it came, dropped the
price some 4 cents and it was said
that the decline was due to agents of
foreign houses having suddenly be
come sellers instead of buyers.
Omaha wheat receipts were 113

had as a goal $2 a bushel, once rea

Hutch"' in a "corner'! in 1888. The
sole other high once record not ex.
celled today, was shortly after the
American-civil war, when sales were
made at $3.10 a bushel.
The Argentine Situation.
Alarming advices in Argentina re
garding increased drought damage
gave the immediate impetus to the
transient bulge in prices today. Grain
buyers for Europe had originally fig
ured on a surplus of 64,000,000 bushels
trom Argentina to meet the-crop short

other countries, but this morning it
seemed uncertain whether Argentine
would raise enough wheat to supply

A NEW BRITISH LOAN
American Banker to Lend
England Three Hundred Mil
lion Dollars More.
RATE IS FIVE AND A HALF
New York, Oct. 25. Official an
nouncement was made today by J. P.
Morgan & Co. that a new British loan
by American bankers, aggregating
$300,000,000, had been arranged. It
will bear interest at 5'j per cent and
is payable in two installments, one of
three years and one of five years.
An interesting feature of the loan,
according to the announcement, is that
because of the easy money market
here it was arranged in advance of
the time contemplated by the British
government. Another is that it is ex
pectedto cause for a time at least a
cessation of the enormous inflow of
gold to this country, which is said to
have caused apprehension in banking
circles of late because of danger of
inflation and fictitious values.
J. P. Morgan sailed for England re
cently to arrange the loan and is still

been in contemplation at the present
time, but the prevailing ease of money
and the difficulty which the banks are
having in profitably employing their
funds have led us to indicate to the
British government that the present
is a favorable time for it to establish
additional credits in America, even
though such credits may not be im
mediately required. Accordingly, the
British treasury has today accepted
the views of the American bankers
and has authorized them to proceed.
"The British treasury has of late
renewed its shipments of gold to this
country upon a large scale. This con
tinued influx of the metal has caused
some concern in the banking com
munity and it is believed that the
issuance of the proposed loan will
tend to cause at least a temporary
cessation in gold imports."
Final details have not been ar
ranged, but the notes to be issued will
be amply secured by high-grade col
