CHICAGO PllonUCK MAIIKKT.
CHICAGO , Jan. 5. ( Special Telegram to the
UK.J. ] There was u continuation of ycstor-
ilay'B battle In the wheat pit , with Hi-uni and
llloom the boar leaders and llutdilnson tlio
htrmiKest bull. As far us these leaders were
concerned , the light was rather less furloiis ,
und even with considerably more outside
trading the market wan dull for a laro part
of the session. May wheat opened at Wi o
nnd there apjicared tolx ; some bullish feeling
present which was left over from jcstcrday
afternoon's short session. The price held be
tween Sfi c and Nc ) for home time and then
droppeil to Me and later to 84 ( MS'iC , then
advanced to MJfc ( and Illietuated between
that price and KiJifc , advancing to S.V.'o when
news of the Hour exports became known. Just
before the 1 o'clock adjournment there came a
rush to sell and the price dropped almost
without a pause to t4e and rested there at
the close of the morning session. February
wheat opened at 78c usked , sold up to TSJ <
and down to Tbjiji ; , where It closed t 1
o'clock. The strongest bull news was that
concerning Hour exports. New York re
ported exports of yf > 70 barrels and li'-ViMi
nacks of flour , mid Haltimore gave exports of
27,4 I" barrels.
The corn market wim particularly dull dur
ing most of the day and the course of prices
seemed to bo more inlluenced by the alternate
weakness and strength of wheat than by any
other came. Fluctuations were within a
ran o of y& and trading was light. May
corn opened at Mtitfni and this was the
highest price. The llrst drop canted the
price to M c , after which there was a reac-
t'nn ' to MJjJe and then another decline just
before the clnso to ril\ii.'jt.1ic ( , the price
resting atM-fc } nt 1 o'clock. Fub'mury "i-iirn
opened nominally aH'.l'.jC ' and closed atI'.ii - .
The last ilccllno In price was attributed to
free solliiiK by liloom.
The speculative oats market was rather
dull but strong fur most of the session.
January oats wore bid up to IWc and that
rather helped the moroactivo delivery , which
was May. That delivery opened at : Cic , im
mediately dropped to ; itj)4c ) and then ad
vanced to ! ir > ( ii.i.Vfc : , declining towards the
close with the other rain markets and rest
ing at 1 o'clock at : MJ-H : njje. ; l-Vbrunry
oats opened at Ul c asked ami closed at
UlU'c.
Tl0 | provision trade showed considenihlo
strength , Increased arrivals of ho s reported
nt the stock yards induced the bear element
to inakfl another raid at the opening on lard
und pork , but their operations met with
rather poor success. The market com
manded much better support than was ex
pected and on the withdrawn ! of the depress
ing Inilueneos pork reacted sharply , with a
moderate following by lard. Short ribs were
comparatively strong thronuhoiit. Based on
last night's closinij the actual decline iu pork
at 1 o'clock w.is only Gc , in lard .Vii'JjO and

Jan. -iSpwlnl Telegram to
the Bci.l : CATTMJ An increase of (5,000 ( ,
cattle over a liberal run of last week seems
to be more than the trade can stiind , this
week at least. Although values were prob
ably no lower than yesterday , the general
market ruled slow and business from llrst to
last wns unsatisfactory for salesmen. The
whole troubb is that there are too many
cutVo coming to market , as the chances are
that there will ho nearly 48,000 for the week.
Texans are scarce , barely u sufficient number
arriving to make a market. Good cows and
heifers arc selling a shade better than hereto
fore , but old cows and common canning
/ ( ode remain at nearly low water mark.

The opening prices were generally the lowest
of the day. The market opened steady , but
business was very light. London appeared
to bo doing nothing , and traders wcro selling
sparingly under the impression that the Chicago
cage bear party would renew their attack on

FLUSH TIMESIN "FRISCO. "
WlieivJlnck Drivers Made $5O n Dny

San Francisco Examiner : Colonel
Mike Branniffnn , the celebrated
{ juitlo und haekmun of Kl Paso ,
Tex. , in on a visit to this city. Mr.
Brnnnipin said yesterday :
"I Imvo coino back to San Francisco
for the purpose of seeing some of my old
friomls of the Arfronaut days of 1840 ,
that is , us many of them us arc alivo. I
'
can toll you s'onip intorestinp ; things
about early times in this city. I owned
and drove the llrst hack that over
rumbled over the streets of San Fran
cisco. In 1851 I got $50 n night to drive
Catherine Hayes , the famous singer ,
and her mother , between the litizotto
house und Tom Maguiro's tlie-
atvo , which was then situ
ated on Washington street , be
tween Montgomery and Kcarny. I
also got the same sum from several
others at the time for the wimo trip.
Those wore good old days , and 1 as well ,
I suppose , as very many ethers , would
wish to sco thorn buck again. I saw
$1,200 paid for a box in Maguiro's thea
ter on the opening night of Catherine
Hayes' season. A Limerick butcher at
Sacramento paid $1 , : < 00 for a box when
she went to the capital city to &ing.
Dollars in these days were more plenti
ful than nickels are now. When the
mail steamers would arrive I have scon
a gambler give a man an ounce of dust
( that is $10) ) for his iilaco in the long
line of anxious peoiilo waiting their
turn outside the old postollleo , which
was then nt the corner of Bronham
plnco ami Clay street. Then you would
liavu to pay $12 n dozen for articles to bo
laundered , and men Ubcrt to throw tolid
underclothing away and buy now ar
ticles rather than pay for washing.
I remember when LoltiiC'rabtreo first
appeared in this city. She used to play
a banjo nnd ilanco jigs at Gilbert's Molo-
ileon at the corner-of Kearny and Clay
streets , and got ? 0 a week. I think that
was in ISol or Ifio-j. She went to Vir
ginia City in 1S0 ( ! , and made a hit.
Twenty-dollar gold pieces were show
ered on the stage for her bonolit. My
charges then as a hack driver were ? .rU
a day and all expenses paid. 1 would
like to see that state of things again ,
and wo would have loss complaints about
capitalists and the like. Kvorybody
was u captallat in the old days , and if
only u few of the wealthiest exist now I
don't know why they ought to bo
blamed.Vo all had a chance lo become
millionaires , and if wo did not , it ciui't
bo helped , and there is no use repin
