Extraordinary Jump In July Wheat Feature
Chicago, May 12. Stoppage of trading In
the May delivery of wheat did not long
delay fresh advances In the price of other
options. Although the markst at first
showed material declines on account of lack
of support buying was soon resumed In
sufficient quantities to make quotations
jump In the same extraordinary fashion that
nae oi late Kept the wheat pit in a tur
moil, July delivery leaped up ISc to $3.69.

compared with $2.49 02.50 at yester-
nays iinisn. aieanwniie September soared 1
to $3,27, a rise of 901Oo over night. j
The immediate reason for ths big new
advance wae the Issuance of an .official
statement by the board, which was con
strued In some quarters as indicating that
the supply and demand situation was even
more bullish than bad been generally as
It wss said the entente allies were large
holders of July and September contracts,
and presumably, as In regard to Msy, would
Insist on delivery of the wheat that the
contracts called for. Lack of offerings and
continued demand characterised the rapid
bulge in values, in the late dealings July
went to $2.76, a rise of 29o from opening
figures. September ascended ,32o to $3.46,
The close was excited. 22028c net higher,

Cash Advances Ten to Four
teen Cents Per Bushel on
Millers' Demand; Chi
cago Ban Anticipated.
Prices on cash wheat on the Omaha
Grain exchange went soaring yester
day. The price advanced 10 to 14
cents a bushel.
Receipts were forty-three carloads
and the offerings brought $3.33 to
$3.45 a bushel, with the demand ex
ceeding the supply. Nearly every
thing was taken by millers in Omaha
There was a greater advance in the
July option than in the cash. Friday
night it closed at $2.55 and Saturday
it opened at $-' 53. It soon sold up
to $279, the high point of the day.
The Chicago July option Friday
night closed at $2.49)4. opened this
morning at $2.4914 and sold up to
The fact of Omaha prices on July
being 8 to 9 cents over Chicago is
said to be due primarily to the heavy
demand by millers.
Corn failed to share the advance
with wheat, though it sold up a cent,
going to $1.60 to $1.65 a bushel, with
ninety-two carloads on the market
Oats were up '4 to 54 cents a bushel
and sold at 71H to 72J4 cents, with
the receipts thirty-five carloads.

May wheat did not cause a ripple of
excitement on the floor of the Omaha
Ten days ago members of the
Omaha exchange anticipated a wide
fluctuation in May, and at that time
ceased trading in the option. Terms
of settlement were agreed upon and
all trades' were closed at and around
$3 a bushel.
As a result, yesterday when in Chi
cago there was a scramble of the
shorts to cover, Omaha grain traders
were in the clear. Barton Millard,
president of the Omaha Grain ex
"The action of the Chicacro Board
of Trade has had no effect here. Few,
if any, of our traders have been
caught short. We anticipated the
situation and the prospect of high
prices and I am of the opinion that
every trade in May wheat was closed
fully ten days ago. Two weeks ago
most of our people quit tradhr in
the May option and ten days ago all
of the deals were closed. I think
everybody is in the clear.
"There was no hunch given to any
one, but, on the other hand, we con
cluded that the option was high
enough and got out."

Minister of Commerce Believes
Closer Business Relations
Will Follow War.
TARIFF BUILDS BARRIERS
(Correspondence of Ths Associated Press.)
Paris, Feb. 21. Etienne Clementel,
minister of commerce, is giving con
sideration tc the expansion of trade
with the United States after the war.
"The interests of America and
France," said he to a correspondent of
the Associated Press, "have grown
so much closer during the war that
I am sure they will continue to de
velop when peace comes. The tfade
policies of both your country ana of
mine before the war made exchanges
difficult. Our financial relations with
the United States during the war
make it desirable, from our stand
point, to increase our exports to the
United States, and you, on your side,
have been showing a great interest
in expanding your foreign trade.
These motives ought, I conceive, to
bring about a new working arrange
ment, in which both countries shall
treat on-a reciprocal basis. From
such information as I have, I believe
that the goverments of both countries
will be disposed to take up this ques
tion at the proper time."
M. Clementel considers that the
trade barriers between France and the
United States are as much the crea
tion of the American government as
of the French. "The obstacles raised
by the French tariff against free im
portations from America," said he,
"are largely the consequence of the
American tariff policy. French manu
facturers and exporters do not com
plain against high rates of duty as
much as against the uncertainty of
the interpretation of your tariff laws
by customs officials and the inquisi
torial practice of investigating the
selling prices in Europe and the cost
of the manufacturer in assessing the
ad valorem duties.

Russian Thieves Have
Mass Meet to Reform;
Bystander Loses Purse
Petrograd, May 12. (Via Lon
don), May 11. A mass meeting
of thieves was recently held at
Rostoff on the Don to demand a
share in the new freedom and a
chance to turn over a new leaf.
The chief of the local militia
and the president and several
members of the council of work
men's and soldiers' deputies were
present on invitation.
Practically all branches of the
profession of thievery were rep
resented and several of the most
accomplished members made
speeches, in which they outlined
the difficulties confronting them
and declared that if was impos
sible to return to honest pursuits
without help and support of the
The speakers complained that
recently the population had risen
against them, and in some in- .
stances went so far as to lynch
some of their brothers.
Chief of Militia Ralmikoff ask
ed for help and support by the
people in aiding the efforts of the
thieves at reformation. .
One of the bystanders com
plained that he had been relieved
of his purse containing six rubles.
The thieves roundly protested
that it was not the work of a pro
fessional and took up a collection
to reimburse the victim.

Amsterdam (Via London), May 12.
The first item on the business pro
gram for next Monday's meeting of

It is believed, says the newspaper,

matter so that the
speech by Chancellor von Bclhmann
Hollweg on Germany's war aims is
not expected before Tuesday.
Stock for Subscription
The first Is to sell the stock and then with the proceeds determine the value
of the property.
The second is to prove up the value of the property before asking the public
to purchase the stock.
In announcing the 200,00(9 shares of tbe Cypress Copper Mines Company for
subscription at 76 cents per share, we personally spent tn excess of $10,000 in
preliminary development work (SI assays from various workings of the property
show an average of $32.28 per ton) for the purpose of ascertaining the value of
the Company's holdings. Accordingly we feel fully justified in recommending the
shares of this eompany as splendid investment.
The prevailing high price of copper with indications pointing to higher prices,
should mean substantial return to the careful investor in copper stocks.
