July 18--Wheat declined today on account of disappointing cables from Liverpool and because of tint weather northwest. The market -was bearlshly affected also by liberal acceptances on overnight bids from here to the country. After opening % to *4c lower, prices suffered a material further setback. A bulliEb Canadian crop report helped bring about a slight rally. The close was steady, % to ?io lower. Corn sagged with wheat. A bulge at Liverpool due to the unmerchantable Quality of Argentina shipments was virtually ignored. The opening, which ranged from c off to a shade advance, was followed by a moderate drop all around. No Important recovery took place. The close was steady at % to Ho net decline. Lack of demand weakened oats. Sell- Ing, however, was not of an aggressive sort Scantiness of ho? receipts at w«itern points held provisions steady. The total arrivals were but HtUe more than half as numerous at at the corresponding time last year. Shellabarger Plant to Have New Equipment.
