NEW YORK. Juply 26. -(A. P.)
A far measure of activity and strength,
especially among steels, equipments
and rubber, sugar nnd tobacco spec
ialties. marked the opening of the
week on the stock exchange. Part of
this advantage was concealed In the
idle drift of the later dealings, the
market closing Irregularly. Sales 285,
Failure of a prominent brokerage
house with local and Philadelphia con
nections suggested that certain weak
features in the market's technical post
tion were in process of further read
justment or liquidation.
Offerings of call money at 5 1-2 per
cent, later shaded to 6. were larrer
than since the disbursement of July In

rates held firm, hut Interior banks
again bought liberally of merchants
Foreign exchange was the one
branch of the financial markets in
which reactionary conditions prevailed.
The London rate for demand bills fell
to a fraction under J3.57 and contin
ental quotations yielded variably.
Trading In bonds was moderately
active, industrials and rails adding
fractionally to last week's gains. Lib

Causes Wheat Itiilgo
CHICAGO. July 26. (A. P.)
Wheat priees bulged at the last yester
day because of reports that wheat
bought by Belgium in Australia was
being received out of condition. The
market closed firm S-4 to 1 1-4C net
higher, -with September 11.234' to
$1.23 3-4 and December $1.26 1,; to
J1.2SV4. Corn gained 3-8 to 5-So, oats
lost 1-2W3-8C to 5-8c, and provisions
finished unchanged to 15c lower.
Late strength of wheat was em
phasized by gossip that exporters could
not ohtain their requirements In the
market -here. Renewed attention was
thus drawn to a statement from Secre
tary Hoover putting stress on a fore
cast that United States surplus grain
would be in demand for Europe. Un
til ruled heavy owing to continued big
receipts here and to a likelihood that
the total primary receipts this week
might exceed any previous record. Be
sides, hedging pressure was such in
evidence during the morning and
premiums for fancy spring grades were
i.hot to pieces, tumbling 25c in some
cases compared with Saturday. On the
other hand, a decided falling off in
hedging sales took place in the Inst
hour, shorts covered freely and com
mission house demand was said to be
of a good class.
Export sales of 500,000 bushels ral
lied corn from the bearish effect of
rains, but hedging sales kept oats
