WHEAT SOARINfi Prioss Continue a Determined Up• ward Tendency. Advance of Three Cents Recorded on the Chicago Board of Trade- In Other Citie*. Chicago Oct. 19. —A further senst- tional advance of three cents took place In the price of wheat Monday morning. On Saturday, December—the active speculative future — closed at 75y 8 cents,, but on the curb it was quoted at rey a cents. Monday morning, before the regular opening, 79Vi cents was the ruling unofficial- quotation, and when trading on tbe regular board began transactions rajigcd from 78% to 7D'/ S cents. The opening was a furious one, but trading soon settled into a more quiet form, the advance being accepted rather ns a ma-tter of course and as being justified by the prevailing coalitions of supplies and requirements the world over. Liverpool, London, Beriin nnd Paris all quoted an.extraordinary rise in price, and, as the foreigners seem to control the situation, this market simply coincided with their action. A verv notable feature of the present market, nnd one 'which is unusual, is the almost total absence of any prominent or influential "short" interest Those who have been short on the future" have been so simply as n. hedge against the cash purchases at interior points i-o that, while apparently loners, they arc iu reality not so. Margin calls were hi-nvy Monday morning, commission in™ iising e\ery effort to protect themselves, n market which jumps around two or three cents over night being calculated to inspire a sense of self-prepervation beyond the ordinary. -\t the expiration of the first half hour December stood at 78% .cents, three cents higher than it closed on Saturday. Almost every prominent professional identified with the present extraordinary rise in wheat sold some Monday. It-is- not believed, however., that they disposed of sullicient to importantly : impair their lines, but; in the aggregate the amount thrown on the-market was enormous, and yet no serious. break..occuEred. Prices ieacted some, as was but-natural they should, butstill the undertone'wasnerv- ous and any further favorable development in., the situation would likely prod*«te J ft.''ir«pe.titip»,.of the previous exciteiife'ni. Closing European advices shdwed . no abatement of strength in that quarter; San Francisco advices were in no degree modified as to their bullish tenor, and the expert demand continues to prevail—New York reporting 75 loads, equivalent^to 600,000-bushels — taken for shipment Monday. The range^on December .during Monday's session wns between 77% arid 79% centa, and the close wns at 77% cents, a net gain of 1% cents.over Saturday. . • Excitement at St. LooU. St. Louis, Oct. 19.—The excitement over the rapid rise in the price of whcnt continues and trading on the floor of the merchants' exchange is livelier than at any time during the past six months. December wheat opened at' 81%c, an advance of lie over Saturday's closing, price. It gNidually rose to SCc, but. later on receded lo 81%c, and nt 11 o'clock ; it was quoted atSl%o. Brokers declare there is no danger of a loc:»l "squeeze," as parties''who have sold "short" are protected by their ca?h holdings. Advance* Six Cent* »t Minneapolis. Minneapolis, Minn., Oct. 19.—There was a wild scene on 'change Mondiiy morning. Wheat advanced six cents within an hour and there was n great scramble of shorts for cover. It is said thflt some of them will not be nbl<i lo raise the money to cover their margins. .• The enrlv advance in wheat on this market was not sustained. Big offerings at the higher prices caused a reaction and enabled the shorts to cover their sale's. It is believed that the \v6rst is now over and that there will, be no failures. The feeling, however, Monday morning was decidedly nervous. It is said that the short interest in this market has now been reduced to small figures, but there-have been some heavy losses. Opinons differ as to the course of the market Wednesday, but the ma.- jori-ty predict a reaction from the late decline and higher prices. . At Toledo, O. Toledo, 0., Oct. 19.—The local wheat market opened excitedly Monday morning and iwjthin an hour an advance of four cents over closing prices Saturday liad been recorded. The prospects r.re that the market, will go still higher. Excitement Unabated at San FranoUco. San Francisco. Oct. 19.—The excits- ment in the local wheat market continues unabated. At the opening call .board session of the produce exchange at lOilS'Monday'morning the first sale of December'-wheat was' at 52 cents, rapidly rose to 54y g cents, finally closing at 53% cents, an advance of T/ 4 cents over Saturday's closing price. May wheat opened 54% cent*, advanced to 571/3 cents and closed at 50% centa, » gain of 8y, cents over Saturday. " At second aessipii, which closed shortly before noon, May wheat' advanced one cent and -December one quarter of a cent. -The sales for-the morning were over 11,000 tona." -. , .-'. ...A benev.oler.t.

Stricken with Bloomington, Ind., Oct. 19. — Gen. Morton C.
