Mr. Col-(iuette went to Pincher Creek to investigate the hay growers company there, which is considered a mcdel of co-operative selling institutions. Winnipeg. Man.. July 17.-The bullish nature of crop reports for "western Canada had the effect of stimulating the market. Oats were chiefly affected and prices for future deliveries advanced. Trading in oats formed the chief business in the pit and trading was quite active for a couple of hours after the opening. Cash prices were a little off. Exporters and eastern buyers were in the market prominently. There was also a good demand for cash seed wheat at better prices. Other grades offered were taken by the government, it is said, but there is little coming forward. Winnipeg October wheat closed unchanged for October. July oats opened ^ to %c higher and closed V&c lower. October closed l%c higher. December closed l"'sc higher. Barley-was lVsC lower at 126% bid. July flax opened 3*4.c higher and closed ?%c up.

They are in the -midst of moving. It is combined with a midsummer house-cleaning. When the Herald reporter called on the mayor thia morning, he was sitting in his now office in the new city hail, reading a newspaper midst the din of hammers and saws. No attempt could bo made at work. But by tomorrow he hopes to be straightened round so that he can attend to business and receive visitors with proper dignity-even though the heat does demanfl 1hat coats be discarded. The olhar commissioners are fairly well settled in their offices in the second storey. The assessment and treasurer's departments, however, are still holding forth at the old offices, and it will be a couple of days yet before they open up at the new hall.
