'''His remarks re. chemists are again in line with the rest of Ins letter. I refer him to the local press, where our sanitory Inspector is in Edmonton, taking a coarse to make him capable of analyzing our-water time. In answer to his last paragraph, playlrig tuc-Held act, etc. I have not the pleasure of knowing Iilr. Lowtlier, but1 feel certain by his letter that at half Mr. Grace's salary that would be twice as much as he has earned; and consequently dear at any price to this city. Better waitr Mr. Lnwther, till the taxpayers nominate you to solve our troubles. Tours faithfully, W Lloyd. 'TYiunipeg, Aug. C5. Winnipeg wheat closed 3 ceuts higher for Oc- tober, ceuts higher tor December, and cents better for iiay. Oats were -'so up for October and Hc high- er for December. Barley dropped "Flax was better for Oct- ober. higher for November and for December, J .Minneapolis wheat, was 5U cents higher for September option, 5 cents higher for December option and 4 Is cents better for May t option. AH markets ended in a closing rally which took quotations up to the high points. The margin of fluctuation was widest in being nearly 10 cents. .Wheat. looked .exceptionally weak in the morning on very much lower cables .and the report on the Saskatchewan crop did ndt help. The statistics were also 011 bear side. With- in 30 minutes wheat had broken more than it did all day Monday. j sent out a very bullish report which l'turned the tide'completely. It-start-1 ed a strong bullish sentiment which! took wheat up nearly 10 cents. The' trade was entirely speculative. The j smallest amount of'straight buying of I the month took place. The exporters refused to trade until the prices set- tled down. The public, commission i men and others had a great time 1 scalping and spreading in one of the j heaviest trades of the season. The cash demand was indifferent. Oats were poor and only the first'grades of wheat were wanted. Engineered by Germans London, Aug. Daily Tele-! graph today, .says that the opinion is expressed the local wheat! market that the rise -in wheat prices was the result of a conspiracy on the j part of the German-Americana in Chi- cago to force prices up and embar- rass the entente allies, "The rise is wheat is condemned here as says the Daily Telegraph "and the whole business seems to have been engineered in America."
