The announcement by the Secretary of the

Green* Co.’s report on cotton futures savs:
“The market for cotton contracts has been
variable all day, fluctuations appearing to fol

however, the tendency was toward somewhat
greater firmness, and after at one time shading
a fraction under last evening, the market closed
fully 5@6 points higher on most months and
pretty firm, and more favorable accounts from
Liverpool helping matters somewhat. So far
as known no actual homage of a serious charac

Chicago, Aug. 4.— To-day in the corn pit,
though September had closed at 41c, the mo
ment’the o]ie)iing belt tapped there were offers
to Sell at 4'I%C. and nothing was done at higher
figures than 39%c. From this it ipiickly dropped
to 39%r, then recovered to 39%' and for a time
fluctuated between %@%c. Everybody was
sellers. On the sheet made by the weather map
there was a I Hi? rain everywhere throughout
the corn Kelt, but some operators tool the
ground that everything was so thoroughly dry
that half tin Inch of rain would make no impres
sion; that com was ruined anyway, and that
any quantity ot rain now would simply break
the market without helping actual conditions
any. Inside of a quarter of an hour September
got up to 3'.M',o Later there were re|Kirt s that
no more ruin was probable and the early bears
developed into the strongest kind or bulls.
During the last half hour they put the corn
market up at a lively rate. Nearly everybody
wanted to buy, and competitive bidding sent
September quickly from 40%e to ll)%e. The
Hosing prices, compared with yesterday, were
tie I? over for September, hut rather firm and
%e higher for Augusi. More than ordinary in
terest attached to early prices for wheat to-day,
for there was some anxiety manifest to know
whether tho collapse of the California wheat
corner would produce any effect on this market.
Two view* were taken of the’Frisco deal. The
bears partly held that prices would Is- lower,
and I lie bulls raid they discerned comfort in the
outcome. A panic had been averted, no failmwa
hod been reported, the bank bad not been in
volved. and a normal and healthy state of affairs
had succeeded the recent strain Prices on tho
strain, however, did not throw the needed light
on the situation and the crowd remained oil the
keen edge of expectancy until the 9:30 gong
made music. It was dear music, however. The
Aral sale was at 09%e, after which the dial went
down the toboggan slide until it halted at 69**0,
nearly lc Inflow last night's clooing, uil of which
demonstrated that the California corner had
bellied the D ors just a little. There were more
traders in the wheat pit than on yesterday, hut
corn was the great strictlon and wheat did very
little rtuetnatiou. Septemlier at one time got
down to 69?', but reacted %c before tho close.
The severe break in corn early carried the spec
ulative market tor oats down There wus 11 de
cline of 14® %0 for Septemlier and October de
liveries, and a break of l>ic for .May. After
wards cams a strong market and a steady
reaction near the close. Futures advanced ut
about % " %c higher an*l May sold up l%e from
Ibe inside or folly up to yesterday's •closing.
Provisions were dull and without feature. The
price changes were confined to small range.
