Minneapolis, June 20. Wheat
Notwithstanding the fact that Liver
pool came a quarter lower lor wheat,
our market opened unchanged from
last night's close. The situation In
tins Northwest Is hourly growing more
and more critical and if wo do not get
good general rains within a very few
dayH the crop will be seriously dam
aged. The future course of the mar
ket depends almost entirely on the
weather conditions. Should wo get
good general rains, the market would
probably sell off a little. Should it
do this, we believe wheat should bo
bought as the situation Is a very
strong one at all points,
