CHICAGO, April 24. -Drouth in Kan
pus , furnished the chief incentive to a
further advance in wheat prices here to
day, the July delivery clising at a net
gain of V2C Corn was also up 4c and
oals Wi'Mc. Provisions were 7&10c to
UVzC lower. -
.The continued absence of rain in Kan
sas as shown by the weather bureau
caused a ntrong- opening in the wheat pit,
there being an active demand. An ad
vance of VtS,d in the price of wheat at
Liverpool said to have been due to un
favorable crop from this country and
also advices of a similar kind from Ger
many and. other parts of Europe nerved
to stimulate additional bullish sentiment
among: local traders. Demand continued
urgent all day and in tpite of heavy real
izing tialej, prices were well maintained.
A report from New York which claimed
ninety boatloads of wheat had been tak
en there for export tended to inspire
fresh enthusiasm among the bulls late
in the session. Primary receipts were lib
eral, total arrivals today being 733,000
bushels compared with 272,000 for the cor
responding day a year ago. This brought
out active profit-taking but all offers
were readily absorbed. . The market
closed ntrong. July opened W$c ioy
c. higher at 8)4H81c, sold at
Sl'4c and then advanced to 81c, closing
fit 8iyiiSlc. Clearances of wheat and
Hour were equal to 133,000 bushels. Min
neapolis, Duiuth and Chicago reported
receipts of 595 cars against 93 cars last
week and 177 cars a year ago.
Trading in corn was more active than
for some time past and the tone of the
market was strung. A sharp advance in
the price of com at Kansas City had a
' bullish-'effect on the market here. Other
infimnees contributing to the strength
were the advance in wheat, smal' re
ceipts and unfavorable weather for farm
work Shorts aril commission houses
were the principal buyers while local
longs were the chief sellers. The market
closed strong. July opened '4c to Ac
higher at 4HiSc, advanced to 49
49',ic and closed at 49c. Local receipts
were 111 cars with seven of contract
Oats were quite strong early in the day
because of numerous crop damage re
ports and also because of the strength
of wheat. Later the marke: reacted
somewhat owing to the free selliug by
longs. The volume of trading was only
moderate. Increased offerings from the
wountry had a depressing effect. July
opened 'ic to ijuVo higher at 41c to
4i,,i4114o, sold at 41V4c and then declined
to 407'ke. The close was 4iy8f41Vic. Local
receipts -were 221, cars..
, There was little trading i provisions
and the tone of the market was rather
weak. x A StilOc decline in the price of
live hogs brought out moderate Helling
by local packers. Demand came chiefly
from shorts. At the close July pork was
off 10c at $15.90. Lard was down, V&c
at $8-70. Ribs were 7VTyl0c lower at S.o6.

Receipts continue liberal and the three
days' supply has been about as large as
for the first half of last week. The
quality of the offerings was very good,
the big bulk of the receipts showing that
they had been in the feed lots for several
Early advices from eastern markets
were decidedly bearish and while there
was the usual srood demand from all the
local dressed beef men, as well as con
siderable inquiry for shipping account,
all classes ( f buyers were Insisting on
lower prices and bids were generally
pretty close to 0c lower than yester
day's figures. Salesmen were slow to
accept the situation and competition for
the light and handy weight grades was
sufficient to hold values very nearly
steady. Most of the plain, heavy nd
unfinished cattle, however, sold 5f10o
lower than yesterday and were slow at
, There were only about thirty loads of
cows and heifers on the market and the
demand for them was fully as good as It
haa been and the limited supply changed
huiuls in good Heason. Voa calves were
nlow and about 50e lower than last week.
The market for bulls, stags, etc., was
fairly active and fully steady.
Receipts of stockers and feeders were
very light and with a good demand from
all the speculators the market was active,
an far as it went, and prkies were fully
steady. There was not a J;ry extensive
country demand, but the general tone
to the market was fully steady.
Hog receipts were of fair proportion
and there' was littie change In the gen
eral character of the offerings. On ac
count of liberal receipts at eastern points
and lower prices there the trade opened
out slow with bids and sales generally
about 5c lower than yesterday. As has
been the ca.se for some time past the de
mand was best for the light and bacon
grades, and these continue to command
a good premium, while the rough, heavy
and packing grades are 8low and unsatis
