wheat crop had a depressing effect on wheat values today and so too did increased hedg ing sales of newly harvested wh at Closing prices for wheat were heavy 1 to cents net lower September 130 to 130 and December to 134 Corn scored 1 to 4 cents gain oats finished unchanged to lower and provisions unchanged to 20 cents higher According to current private esti mates the wheat crop in the United States as judged at present suggests 46000000 bushels greater yield than was indicated a month ago and is about equal to last final returns Under such' circ*mstances the wheat market soon underwent a material setback in price with selling given further impetus by liberal receipts especially at Kansas City and Chicago oreigners and commission housesbecame active buyers on the down turns in wheat prices and brought about sharp rallies that were also associated with a resumption of black rust reports from both north and south of the Canadian boundary One report from Manitoba said that con sidering the stage of wheat the rust had the earliest start which had been seen either in the United States or Canada in five years Realizing sales and pressure from hedgers however forced the market down during the late transactions and the close was near the lowest level Corn owed its strength chiefly to persistent buying based on smaljness of receipts here As a result Septem ber delivery established a new high price record for the season Oats were easier owing to sympathy with wheat and as result of oats crop estimates indicating material improvement since July Expected falling off in the number of hog arrivals here gave firmness tc the provision market Leadioi utures at Chicago Merchant Bankrupt A voluntary perition in bankruptcy was filed in the United Stales district court at
