M A R K E T S i Wheat Bull* Get a Chance to Rally. Chicago, June !7--Fear of blaok rust In the spring crop region gave the wheat bulls today a chance to rally. As a result the market which had an upward slant nearly the whole session, closed steady at a gain of Ho net. Other leading staples, too, all finished higher than last nleht--corn up Ii4 @1U to 1% at l%c, oats He to He and provisions 2Ho to lOc. Excessive moisture northwest had al most a complete monopoly of attention on the part of speculators in wheat It was asserted rain bad fallen 24 out of 27 day; this month all over the spring wheat country and that the chance of black rust developing before Monday was by no means remote. Prospect of a big decrease in the visible supply total Monday had considerable Influence toward sustaining the wheat advance. It was a drouth scare that put up the price of corn. Damage reports came from Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri Kentucky and Tennessee. Hot winds were aaid to have prevailed in Oklahoma for three dadys with temperatures above 100. Southern Illinois, Indiana and Ohio were also reported to be suffering Injury that threatened to become acute unless afforded quick relief. Oats were bought on account of the strength of other grain. Provisions ranged higher because of shorts covering. The incentive was mainly the wholesale reversal of feeling In regard to cereals. No Important News on Financial Situation. New York, June 27--The stock market fell into the doldrums again today. Business during the two hour session amounted to about 70,000 shares and the listless movement left little doubt of Its highly professional origin. Prices of representa ive shares were lifted fractionally above the previous day's closing: quotations and sentiment was more cheerful, the Claflin failure no longer being regarded as cause for alarm. Technically the market denoted a strong undertone. Apart from Washington dispatches suggesting f u r t h e r indefinite delay in the handing down of the eastern freight rate decision, the day was devoid of any Important news bearing upon the financial situation. Some more railway statements for May were presented, but they were not calculated to arouse enthusiasm, showing general losses in net earnings. Advices from leading mercantile trade centers were moderately optimistic, with indications, however, that merchants were pursuing their established policy of cautious buying. Actual cash loss of the clearing house banks was much In excess of all estimates, aggregating over $12,000,000 which Is a trifle more than the week's Bold withdrawals. Chicago Live Stock.

Judging; from th« uunplw so far exhibited, our wb«*t will mostly test heavy enough for number two but on account of extremely drr weather at harvest the grains wilt likely not be as plump as usual. SELLING TOO FREELT. So much wheat has already been sold for export that the vessels have advanced both their lake and ocean rates of freight. There seems to be no bull leadership In the market and we are selling Europe our wheat at whatever price they see fit to offer us. Why don't the farmers stock their wheat an* sell tt as the market will take care of It, at good prices, the same as they do their corn? Wheat threshing will be general here the coming week. The berry has cured out fine In the shock. CORN AND RAIN. Throughout most of the corn belt one hears good reports of the growing crop. In several corn states there is, as yet, too little moUtura in the grounJ to mature the crop and the rains we do or do not get In July and August will determine the yield. A corn crop should have fourteen inches of rain during the crop season to mature it properly. OATS BETTER. Scattered showers, mostly In th» northern half of Illinois, have Improved our'chances for a fair crop of oati: in most places the stand Is thin en the ground and heads short, but the outlook is some better than It was si month ago. Cutting will probably Commence her* within ten £ays. Stocks of old oats most everywhere are light, but buyers are holding off awaiting offerings of the new crop; any unfavorable reports of the growing crop would be at once reflected in prices of old oats.
