Chicago, April 9. Action of the
wheat market last week was such
as to puzzle traders on both sides. It
u-ai ripi'irinrllv a two-dricri attair and
is expected to be for some time, with
sharo fluctuations within a fair
range. Liquidation by holders of May
was combined with increased pres
sure from the bear interests who
were induced to sell by reports that
around 2,000,000 bushels cash wheat
is to come here from Missouri river
markets, of which 700,000 bushels
has been sold. This wheat is to be
'delivered on May contracts and part
of it is in transit. All the wheat
coming from the southwest to Chi
cago is not for May delivery, as a
cargo is to go to a Buffalo miller.
It would not be surprising to hear
that the bulk of the wheat to be
brought here will go to eastern mill
ers, although it might be delivered
, on M?y saies first.
Under present market conditions
there is a better market for the sur
plus wheat stocks now at the Mis
souri river in Chicago than else
where. But suppose that 5,000,000
bushels wheat comes here between
j .i i r hj :. A

only make around 7,000,000 bushels.
This should not be considered as
burdensome. It is a good supply at
the end of the crop year", and should
the new harvest be large, it might
have a depressing effect later in the
Eiport Bnsinea Slump. -
Kitport bualncsa ha fallen-off and mill
ing demand is not larg. although giving
Indications of betterment. Foreigner are
taking Manitoba and Argentina wheat.
Export from Argentine and Australia
conUnu heavy and stocks on passage
may ahow an increase for th wjek.
Should Germany aecur the 163,000.000
'Argentina credit under negotiation it may
v Chang th world wheat situation by
forcing other countries lo depend upon
th United Statea and Canada for their
Thla 1 th aeason for crop report.
Those from th aouthwest are spotted.
Th lat sprouted wheat has not stooled
and may not mak a good yield. One ot
th xpert aya crop reports from there
at present ar of little value and it is
Impossible to tell how much acreage will
be abandoned. In other sections the
loss of acreage is expected to be small.
Short Hay Cover.
Th trade, in the man. haa th Impres
sion that ther has been an absorbtion
of wheat ty atrong interests and that
eventually It will be found that it has
landed In atrong hands. Whether local
ltd seaboard Interests who ar long will
want th cash whet to ehlp out remains
to b seen. There I ssaid to be an ex
tended ahort Interest which may cover
lor a few days at advanced prices.
Foreign buying of corn has fallen off
and doraeatlc demand Is unusually small.
Chicago received 1,3:3.000 bushels last
week or 96.000 bushels more than th
previous week and 7,000 bushels below
last year'a. Th primaries had SSI, 000
bushels leas than last year.
Oat seeding is one to fiv weeks late
nd unles weather improvea will be lat

She was glad when the meal was

Royston held out his hand.
