CORN DROPS BACK
Bulls Let the Market Take
Care of Itself.
WHEAT TAKES FIRST -PLACE

Responsible for the Ad

Oats are dull, and work over ranee of
CHICAGO. June 19. Corn, though fairly act-
iive for an ordinary day, dropped back Into
second place toSay. Wheat ruled uniformly
strong throughout the session. At the start,
I Paris cables showed rapid advances, spot be
'1ns as much as 3Vic higher, whUe deferred
futures showed 3V4c advance. There was talk
,of some "deal" on In Paris, but It must have
tbeen of xreat proportions, for It Influenced
Fmaterlal upturns In flour. "Wet and cold -weath
er abroad was talked of, and some traders
were of the opinion that French stocks of
wheat were about depleted. It takes 7,000.000
bushels weekly to supply that oountry. This
Influence was abetted by firmness In Liverpool
cables. "Wet weather here also had Its In
auence. There was rain In many parts of the
"Winter-wheat country- Kansas, where cutting
Is now In prosress, reported much moisture In
the yield, and that a considerable quantity of
the harvested grain would not grade contract
because of the dampness. This talk -alarmed
the shorts. Covering started a good upturn
and stop-loss orders -were met on the advance.
July opened a shade to Hc higher, at 7214Q
72e, dipped to 72Sf73'4c, ahd then mounted
steadily to 7314c. Toward the close, some
wheat came out for profits, and July dipped a
trifle. The close, however, was strong, July
5$lo up. at 73fcc.
After some fair early strength 6hown In the
corn pit by reason of a desire of a few belated
shorts to cover, this pft. assumed something of
a somnolent state. The feeling was still tense,
and at times there were little excited fhirrles.
Prices at such times fluctuated somewhat er
ratlcally. As the day wore on, however. It
became apparent that the bull leaders were
letting the market care for Itself. July sold
between COc and 65c, covered differences -of io
several times, and closed easy. Uc down, at

The New Yofb Journal ct Commerce; la r-
viewing the crop situation of last week, has
the following to say:
There have oeen no sensational developments
the past week In the crop situation, nor any
especial activity In any staple, spot or future,
except In flour, whlch has at last betn resur
rected In part, with an active trade In Spring
patents at concessions of 10c early In the week,
followed by Its recovery with wheat towards
the close. Crop developments have not been
so favorable -as hitherto, beginning with the
Government crop report, which was much more
bullish than expected, not showing an Improve
ment In Winter wheat during May, while the
acreage of Spring was further reduced. Weath
er conditions during the week have been rathei
unfavorable, both at home and abroad, espe
cially for -wheat, though in some parts of the
com belt more favorable until the latter part
of the week, when too much, wet -weather was
complained of. While thfc new-crop situation
has therefore been less bearish than hitherto
regarded by the speculative element, which Is
still bearish, the old crop situation has been
growing more bullish on continued decreasing
receipts and Increasing premiums on cash stuff
over the options. There was an exception to
this In Kansas wheat of the old crop, of which
offerings have been more free, both to interior
millers and to exporters, resulting in consid
erable business via the Gulf for shipment of
wheat and mora free offerings of prompt ship
ments of. flour from the Kansas mills. Other
wise, everything has been tending stronger,
started by the increasing premium at Minneap
olis on July wheat, to advance 3c in two
days, ending In the sensational purchase of
1.800.000'Jjushtls cash wrheat by the PJJlsbury
Washburo Milling Company, cleaning up all
the milling grades In the Ptavey Northwestern
elevator systems, including that held at Du
luth, which, it Is said, will be Shipped ack to
Minneapolis. This emphasized the scarcity of
old Spring wheat, and Indicated that th,e mill
ers regarded It as a question of when they will
be able to get enough of the old crop to carry
them to the new. especially the mills that have
not secured stock In advance of current wants.
Simultaneously -with this movement In wheat
the flour trade suddenly woke up to the fact
that they might want some old Spring wheat
flours before the new crop, and they met the
millers at $3 B0g4 05. and took over 125.000
barrels In this marktt. This Is the biggest
business that has been done in several months,
and Is the first spurt of. activity but one since
the new year, these two" having been the only
relief to a protracted and extreme dullness hith
erto unknown to tha trade. But this activity
has not extfcbded to other grades of flour, not
withstanding Kansas straighU -were offered
quite fraoly at 10c decline, owing to the letting
out of the balance Of the old crop of wheat by
Kansas farmers before the premium on old
over new-crop deliveries shall be lost. This,
too. In face of further reduced estimates, Or
the aKnsas crop of under 40T.000.000 bushels, or
less than halt that of 1901. Oats have been
active for cash and July, and prices have ad
vanced on this demand -and 6n the covering of
JuU shorts in Chicago, while corn has been
rather quiet roost of the week, neither bulls
nor bears being aggressive; but there were 10
loads taken direct for Chicago fh two days for
export, or more than In many weeks, though
said to be on a special order; otherwise, there
have been no new features -except the foreign
buying of option vheat on wet weather in
England and France and quite liberal buying of
cash, or, rather, first shipments of new crop,
by France, whoso stocks are getting low and
will require considerable replenishing from
abrtad before her harvest.

IROX AND STEEL.
Restraining Influence of Consolida
tion Is Recognized.
CLEVELAND, June 19. The Iron Trade Re
view, discussing market conditions In Its cur
rent Issue, says:
More of a disposition to buy for the first half
of 1903 appears among the foundries, and con
siderable business has been clased'or negotiated
within the wek for Northern furnaces. Ohio
furnaces are selling for $19 SO, on the basis of
$21 and $21 60 at furnaces.
The restraining Influence of the consolidation
Is recognized throughout the market, yet the
course of prices for plates and in the East for
structural material shows that the tendency is
to push to the point at Which the restriction
of consumption is sure to result. The tonnage
of pig Iron purchases Is under discussion by
foundries for delivery next year, and prices
close to those prevailing recently for 1902 de
liveries Indicates less opposition to that high
level than might have been looked for. North-'
ern foundries are making new contracts with
their customers for the year beginning July 1,
and are compelled to ask considerably higher
prices than last year, thus tar without sign of
Pig Iron production, reduced at the beginning
of the month by valley furnace strikes, is how
cut down by the West Virginia coke strike.
Seven coke furnaces In tho Hanging Rock dis
trict are banked, but the embargo is not ex
pected to last long. In Eastern Pennsylvania
Irregular fuel supply has Increased the amount
of low-grade Iron made by the furnaces and
reduced tho supply for foundries, so that for
eign metal still finds a ready market. From a
weekly rate of 852.0C4 tons. May 1, pig Iron
output was cut down by the blast furnace
workers strike to 241,748, June 2. but It Is
now close to the May rate, equivalent to 18,
600,000 tons a. year.
Stocks tell off about 2000 tons In May, and
are no longer a factor to reckon -with.

The Salmon Ontlook.
Discussing the situation In salmon, with par
ticular reference to the market on the 1D01
pack, M. W. Uouck &. Bro., of New York, In
a circular Issued to the trade Juno 16, say. In
"Last year's total pack of salmon amounted
to about 6,000.000 cases, over 95 per cent of
which has already passed from first hands,
and the balance -will go out Tilthln the next
few weeks. This Indicates a rapidly lnornaslng
-consumption for this product. This result has,
no doubt, been brought about by reason ol the
very low price of salmon as compared with
"The greatest increase In the pack of laf.
year occurred on Puget Sound and In British
Columbia, where, at recurrent periods of four
years, there Is a phenomenal run of -fish, the
Intervening years averaging considerably less
half the quantity;, hence, while the pack In the
sections referred to was last year something
over 2.COO.OO0 cases, it Is likely during the.
present season to fall short of 1,000,000 cases,
and It Is doubtful. It the total pack of the
Coast -will greatly exceed 3,000,000 cajfts.
Therefore, If the Increased consumption, as
demonstrated this year and estimated at 4,500,
000 cases Is maintained in the future, a 3.000,-000-case
pack (which up to last year was a
maximum) will be sufficient to supply the de
mand." Referring to general market conditions, the
Seattle Trade Register has the following:
"The Eastern market seems to be awakening
to the fact that red Alaska tails, sockeye talis
and sockeye halves are -actually sold up as far
as Coast holding are concerned, and that they
will be compelled to rely upon spot stocks fur
their supplies, -which cannot, under any olr
oumstancta. hold out for more than 30 days
longer -with the present unusual consumptive
demand forthls time of yean The above con
ditions being generally known have been the
means of stiffening up the market and ad
vancing the Idea of holders of sockeye flats
upon which the trade will be compelled to fall
back In the "not far distant future; and this,
naturally, Wljl have a tendency to enhance the
values of all the lower grades of salmon, stand
ard lines of which have already been partly
broken Into. Reports from all sections of the
country Indicate a continuation of the phe
nomenal consumptive demand which has char
acterized the market for the past six months,
and which. If continued (and there seems every
probability of it), will make the carry-over of
the 1901 psck much less than was anticipated
a few weeks ago." 4

REACTION IN STOCKS
PROFESSIONAL TRADERS TURN AG
GRESSXyELY 7iO SEAR J5UXE. "
The.CircnlatloH of Alarjalasr, Rumors
Carries Dorrs "United 'States Steel
Stocfcs Sterling; Exchange Firm.
NEW YORK, June 19. There was quite an
animated, shaking out of speculative accounts'
in today's stock market, and a sharp reaction
from tho recent prolonged advance. It became
evident soon after the opening this morning
that the real culmination cf tho rise had oc
curred yesterday. The leading speculative Ip
terests in the market apparently took advant
age of the stimulating effect of yesterday's
excited rise in Illinois Central to taka profits.
This morning there wiro some operators who
seemtd to reprsent continued efforts to ad
vanco the market by one or two of the Import
ant speculative parties whose Joint efforts havo
Induced the late rise. But the effective sup
port of the principal speculative Interest was
lacking, and the professional traders were able
to detect salts to taka profits lor that account.
They needed no other Invitation, to turn ag
gressively to tho bear side, and sold the list
throughout with great freedom. Prices gavo
way readily, and fell on an average of from
132 points below last night's level.
The whole movement was technical and was
as little affected by news of ihe day as the
previous advance -bad been. The activity of
the bears was evident In the circulation of tha
alarming rumors, afterward denied. One was
that J. Plerpont Morgan was ..seriously 111.
Another was that a fresh Judicial decision
had been rendered against the United States
Steel bond Issue. The earlier weakness was
confined to stocks which have been favorites
during tho bull campaign but actlvo selling of
United States Steel developed under the influ
ence of these rumors carried that stock down
IS below last night.
The long-clntinued rise In stocks has made
the professional alert for signs of reaction,
which was considered overdue. The stirring
of interest by outsiders, which was first man
ifest yesterday, also facilitated the profit tak
ing by the nlslders In the bull campaign There
was bo unfavorable news today which has not
been under discussion for some time past.
But in the changed sentiment of speculation
additional consideration Is given by the Nation
al Convention .of coal miners and the effort
to bring about a general strike.
Sterling exchange was still firm here and
declined at Paris, both movements tending to
.increase the pressure on New York ior gold.
Individual caurfes aggravated tha weakness 'Of
some special stocks.
Bonds were weak In sympathy with stocks.
Total sales. $3,110,000. United States bonds
were all unchanged on the last calL

Watchman's Daughter to Bear frame
of Famous River Steamer.
John Stewart, the -watchman on the
steamer Telephone, Is very proud of the
boat of which he Is custodian. In fact, he
is so proud of her that when a. new daugh

since hd named her Telephono Haiel
Stewart, after the old boat. The Tele
phone has not been in commission for sev
eral years, but is lying at the foot of
Jefferson street, awaiting the company's
pleasure to restore her to her once proud
position on the river. At one time she
was tho fastest boat on the Astoria run,
and Hiss Stewftrt should be honored to
bear the name of the cx-queen of the Co

and on behalf of the White Collar Line
presented Mr. and Mrs. Stewart with a
handsome baby carriage for, the accom

Charter Party Fight In England.
The fight) against the new form of char
ter party which McNear and the rest of
the big four are trying to force upon
ships seeking grain charters is waxing
warm, and It is believed that the owners
will win. The London Times of May 20
has the following to say of the mitter:
A meeting of sailing shipowners In the North
Pacific trade was held on Thursday at the
rooms of the Liverpool Shipowners Association,
and besides local owners, representatives wera
present from the Clyde Sailing Shipowners As
sociation and the Union of Shipowners of
France. The object was to consider alterations
made in tho San Francisco charter -party.
Colonel Goffey, who presided, explained what
had been done. While Liverpool and Glasgow
shipowners were united In opposition to the
now form of charter party, French and German
owners were. It possible, still firmer. On the
motion of the chairman, seconded by L. C.
Emslle. the following resolution was unani
mously adopted and signed:
That the shipowners signing and assenting
to this resolution, being of opinion that the al
terations embodied In the new form of charter
party recently Issued by the grain-shippers of
San Francisco are objectionable ahd unfair to
shipowners, protest against the action of the
charterers In issuing tho form without,, pre
vious consultation with the shipowners, and
pledge themselves not to charter on the new

Bicycles May Warn Automobiles?
St. Paul Pioneer Press.
The almost universal comment on the
storm of Indignation that followed the ac
cident at the automeblle speed trials on
Staten Island was that If the automobli
Ists had Riven the same strenuous atten
tion to developing practical utility that
they had given to developing useless
speed the automobile would not be looked
upon " with a disfavor that closely ap
proaches hostility. The Electric Review
In this connection suggests that the use
of the bicycle as a sporting; toy and its
abuse by "scorchers" wrecked Tt in popu
lar esteem and practically sacrificed an
Industry which, promised to be large as
well as permanent. It sees In this experi
ence a warning for the manufacturers of
automobiles who, yielding to popular de
mand, have paid more attention to secur
ing speed than to developing more useful
qualities. And it adds: "The same money,
the same ingenuity and the same engi
neering skill displayed in constructing an
electric automobile to cover a mile In 40
odd seconds would very likely have re
sulted in building- a machine that would
transport a truckload of goods at four
miles an "hour over cobblestone pavements
