The wheat market closed 1 about V
cent lower. It has been an extremely
active and nerroug" market The rains
in the southwest. . the indifference of
cables io the advance here and the con
tinued liberal receipts started a selling
pressure, particularly In July, which re
sulted In a break of ! cents early In
the day. Thla waa partially recovered
later; ,-j There ''was some ; little, selling
pressure in May, but Armour supported
the price and the closing showed no lit
tle, change. Price Current says the crop
situation Is ; unchanged. Consols are
higher. The general feeling seems to be
gradually gaining confidence that there
will be no war. The congested condi
tions is to a considerable extent im
perative and confident feeling' on the
market is Impossible, In a general way
and on the general world's position we
would say that both July and September
wheat are high and we are inclined to
advise selling! them on that. The mar
ket will be subject no doubt to con
siderable fluctuations on account of the
manipulation of the May. t

The corn market was active and un
settled. The break of 1 cents early
was followed by a reaction of nearly the
whole , loss, but the close was cent
below yesterday's., Ine' weakness wss
the result of about a week's steady ad
vance and the ; resulting - speculative
situation A great deal of corn was
sold at 60 cents by some of the best
holders and this not' only filled the
shtrts, but it passed Into the hands ot
the scattered holders. Continued Soft
weather throughout the" West Induced
considerable buying on the break. There
is no change that we can see in toe cash
position and no Increase in the move
ment, from . first hands. . We are In
clined to think that on the speculative
situation com . ought to have little
further reaction, but we think wb would
K buy it.. ; There is not likely to e any
greater persistent selling more than
what Is temporary and speculative.
Oats Without Katerlal Change, ;
the oats market is without material
change. On the weakness In wheat and
corn It sold off .about 1 cent early but
regained it before the close. There are
so far no .udtcatlons of any shrinkage
In the Patten holdings and they are
qule a" factor. 7 The movement is still
small. Our advices indicate that there
la likely to be considerable hunting for
seed oats in different parts of the, coun
try,' particularly In' Iowa. In a great
many sections the quality was poor and
the estimates of the oats show that they
are deficient in germinating power. .
