Lage Crop and High Freight
Work Against Market.
VIEWS OF T. B. WILCOX
Small Prospect or Grain Going to
fw Eastern States This Year.
Forty Million Dollars for
Farmers of Northwest.
There l very little prospect of any wheal
going East thl year. In the opinion of T.
B. Wilcox, unless price here descend to a
materially lower level. Should the tonnage
scarcity become more acute and wheat prices
decline to about 60 cents In the country,
and price In the East go much higher,
shipments across the Rockies may be made.
"Ships are getting 40 shillings for Decem
ber cancelling.- said Mr. Wilcox yesterday.
"A steamer has been taken at 42 shillings
and no mora axe to be had. The price of
cargoes in the United Kingdom and on the
Continent now Is IT shillings pence. If
considerable offerings were made the price
would go lower, but on the basis of T
shillings f pence and 48 shilling ships, club
wheat Is worth about 7 or 7 cents track.
The probabilities are. as sailing ships and
tonnage of all kinds are so scarce, though
between now and January they may be a
little more plentiful, that the price Is go
ing to be rather below SO cents than above.
Last year the market opened at 77 cents.
This year It should start at about the same
Crop prospects In the Northwest are far
the biggest wheat yield we have ever had.
Another week will safely determine the
quality and tonnage of Spring wheat. The
Winter wheat crop ia made. The amount of
crop now promised and at the prices that
are likely to prevail, will give the farmers
more money than they received for their
crop last year. The crop ahould be worth
about $40,000,000 In the country to the farm
"Freight ratea to the Orient, as well as
to Europe, are going to be high and this
will have a further tendency to bold down
wheat prices. Tonnage Is fully employed
all over the world. Shipowners have had
several bad years, and are now reaping their
CPLIFT !' THE WOOL MARKET.
Law of Snpply and Demand Is Putting
Politics has nothing to do with the pres
ent wool situation. The law of supply and
demand has put prices where they are to
day, says the New York Journal of Com
merce. Consumption is going on at a great
er rate than at any time in five years and
bids fair to continue. According to wool
statisticians, the domestic clip is going to be
short, but how much cannot be stated with
aoy degree of certainty. Some estimates put
the shortage at 20,000.000 pounds, while
others make It over M.000.00O pounds. This
extraordinary condition, coupled with the
fact that the demand for Jow and medium
grade wools promises to be large enough to
quickly absorb all that Is offered, has made
the price of quarter blood and three-eighths
blood wools relatively dearer than fine. The
latter are also firmly held and good author
Hits are of the opinion that the prlcea being
paid will be easily maintained during the
remainder of the year irrespective of th
outcome of the Presidential - election.
The prices paid in the West at the open
ing of the new season were described at the
time as belag extravagant and unwarranted
by conditions. . These views have undergone
revision since the opening of the season.
Dealers are convinced that prlcea will not
reeedo and mill that bought at what were
considered fancy flgurea six weeks ago would
like to repeat those transaction.
FRUIT EHlrMEXTS ARB HELD BACK
Active Demand ea Front Street, but Snpply
la Not Large.
There was an active demand for fruit
yesterday, but the supply on Front street
was not heavy. The congestion of special
trains Is holding back a number of large
shipments of perishable produce. Three
cars of watermelon and one car of canta
loupe are among the delayed shipments.
Deciduous fruit prices were unchanged.
Loganberries and raspberries were more
plentiful and easier, but blackcaps and
blackberries were Arm. Wild blackberries
offered at 12 m cents. There waa a good
demand for good cherries. A large portion
of the offerings were cracked or otherwise
Thompson seedless grapes from the Im
perial Valley sold well at .2.30 a crate.
Bananas were firm under a sharp local
and shipping demand.
EGO ADVANCE MAY BE TEMPORARY
Price likely to Ease Off After This Week.
The egg market waa very strong yesterday,
as the . demand for strictly fresh candled
stock exceeded the supply. Current receipts
were quoted at 2 cents and candled eggs
at 2S cents, while extras brought 30 cents.
The retail market la now on a 35-cent basis.
It is probable the egg mafket will ease up
after the Elks" convention crowd leaves th
Poultry of all kinds was in sharp demand.
Hens sold at 13hk cents and Spring at 18
to 18 cents. The dressed meat market was
also strong, fancy veal bringing 14 cents.
, Butter and cheese were Arm and un

Winds in Kansas Lift Price of

CHICAGO. July 10. Fear that storm dam
age in Minnesota would prove serious had a
bracing effect today on the price of wheat.
Wheat pursued an erratic course until de
tails of storm injury in Minnesota caught
the attention of the crowd. The market
opened nrm on the Government report,
showing farm reserves the smallest in years.
' Hot winds in Central and Western Kan
sas were held responsible for overturning
henrish sentiment In the corn Pit. Much
of the early depression appeared due to the
Government report confirming estimates of
a yield far in excess of last season s

huge crop promised In the Washington es
timate, were in a stampede to cover before
