Thorn was llttlo change In the price , llttlo
posltlxo nons to ullect prices , llttlo disposi

clthrrlioavy buying or selling. Wheat ruled
about steady , between 07J c and O'Uo tlio first

Thn wheat market ruled at lower prices
than the average yesterday , but Rcnorally
better than at the close last night. Thcro
was fair Intcicst early , but Ions Before the
close tlio pit wns quiet. The action of May
wosOi'iO toMMcto97'lo to 07 0 to O' o to
074o ! to 03o to W'io at 1 o'clock. July sold
nroumlKJc , mostly between DJ'iO and 03Uc.
The news was illxldcd , much as on previous
flays for the week. The cash Hltuatlon here ,
and elsewhere , Is strong , making It dangerous
for the shorts , \vhllo tlio most of the outsldo
news was on tlio bear side. To begin with ,
the weather , whatever Its elleets on tlio fields ,
liad a depressing and bearish olToat on the
triulo. Receipts wore pretty liberal all around.
Minneapolis had 213 oars , Duluth 31 , making
241 cars at trto points , against 1.1S a jcar ago.
Kansas Olty had 53 earn , seine of It said to bo
Orefion and Washington wlioit , Chicago had
25 cars o\cr the estimate. India and Haltlc
( hlwnCMtsto the United Kingdom and the
continent for tlio week aggregated about
! , My,000 bushels. Now York cleared 81,003 bush
els of wheat und 10.0'jO ban els of flour
.but Ititltltnoro clcaroil novhcit : and 5,003 bar
rels of flour. Tlio I'tlcc Current dispatch
called tlio growing wheat condition well
maintained at a high average , Wheat of 1833
In farmers'hands In nine , western states Is 20
percent of a crop , against 31.0 per cent for
March 1 , 1890. On this class of news the low
prices of tlio morning wore mado. Then ad
vices rcgaidlns cash wheat came In. Minne
apolis reported a gooJ demand at 0.1'o ' ! or lo
under May. Duluth reported a sale of No. 1
northern to Now York at (1.15 and another to
Duirnlo of No. 1 hard at { 11414. Later thcio
was another sale of No. 1 northern tit Now
York at $1.10 and. still later , S. V. Whlto k Co.
had a message giving a sale of northern at 81.17.
Karly In tlio day New York icportcd three
boat loads worked thcro late yesterday for
export. That point also asked for offers of
cash wheat hero to go uy all rail. The eastern
mills wore said to bo negotiating for 150,000
bushels of red wheat. Thcro was llttlo con-
fiplemms trading. Ten minutes before the
close May rccoiorod again to O7' o on good
buying , Wheat showed Rood support at the
close with .May at 074G077iO ? bid. This was a
net gain from last night of UB c against
much odds and bear news. 1 cbruary was
quoted as low M U2io ? and as high as 03c ? ,
closing utUJ'ic.
Corn hold the ! io range for the session up

bo ii scarcity of Influences on which to specu

Omnha Tlio wheat market has hccn ( julot

U o for Jlny. It sold ns low us l)7'jo ) ! during the
session. The principal fe.ituro In the d'ly's
business has been one oromlncnt scalper try

tlnuo eood for the season. The weather Is
fine. The oTerlngs to the United Kingdom
and continent are liberal from Australia , the

The small vlslblo stocks on tlilc slilo of the
Atlantic may glvo -advance between this
and the growing crop bclmr reaped , but the

Yoitic , Feb. li [ Special Telosrara to
Tun HCE.I STOCKS There was no sljm of Im-
pro vomont In the stock market at tlio open
ing. In fact the first action was a continua
tion of the downward tendency o' yesterday.
The market was narrow nnd of a professional
character. A few stocks developed marked
weakness and In distillers and c.ittlo
feeders , which was adversely affected by the
disclosures of the plot against the rival dis
tillery. the loss extended to 1U per cent.
Among the active stocks , however , Durllngton
& Qulnoy followed c'osoly , losing Us , while
othorlosses were conllnod to loss than 5s per
cent. This was followed by n full recovery In
everything but llnrllngtoa , and In many cases
the opening prices were surpassed , but the
market remained very dull for everything ox-
iciit llnrllngton , AtchNon and n half doen
tliers of the le.ullng shares JUKI , later In the
our , there wns no perceptible movement In
Ithor direction. Vlllnid stocks were well
upportou fioin the start , but without any
material advance. The period fiom 11 a , M ,
.o 1 o'clock wasdovotd of Interest. Tlio market
dosed dull and prices a shade under tboso of
bo opening.

NChango frutcrnlty thought last night
hat HlmpU ) dullness w.is the principal
cnson for the partial reaction In pi Ices and
tagnntlun In operations at the close of the
lay. The theory th.it was Iptit for-
ivard In seine circles that there
ivould bo no Important Improvement In
peculation until congress adjourns found a
e\v believers and It may hnvo some fotindn-
lon and may not. W , II. Wheeler sajs that

luetuntlons. It Is said bv a good sourcothat
( Jould will not remain In the south
over n week or ten days but
.s . coming right back to Now York.
The stock miirkot has been under tbo liillti-
Pnco of firm rules for sterling exchange nnd
Eonio shipments of gold for Kuropo. It is
claimed that shipments aio not warranted by
current rates of exchange , but that the Jl.COf- )
000 taken will go to the continent und will
iiobnbly bo used In repairing the loan from
.ho Hunk of France to the Hank of England.
the theory belli ! : that the Hank of Kngland
can send gold to I'uils fiom Now York to bet
ter advnntn'o than from Its own vaults. Gold
hlpmcnts always scare speculators In stocks
ma there has been no execution today : The
disposition today has been not only to sell out
'ong stocks but go shoit of the market und
irloes haxo consequently boon depressed.
The market has not been a Inrgo one but ti
midity of buyers has been nniiurcnt and sol-
lois have had to accept shrinking quotations
as the day progressed. The news from Wash-
"ngton nolnts to the failure of the free coinage
.11011 to got any legislation this wlnUir
and silver certificates were weak In conso-
iionco. The fnot that no free colnngo will bo
nncted should help tno market nnd probablv
did sotno In sustaining prices , Tlio resigna
tion of President Norton of the Louisville fc
Nashville wns followed by quite n sharp de
cline In the price of that stock. The street Is
full of rumors that other causes brought
about the resignation than the one , given by
the retiring president. It Is said he did not
approve wholly of homoproooscd action of the
board. The inarUot had a lltmcr tona towards
the close and rallied somewhat from the
lowest price. Total sales , 101,474.

Country Produce.
Tlio markets on country produce were de
cidedly qulot yesterday. The receipts wcro
not lurpo , but there was wanting that nctlvo
demand nopossiiry to the making of a i > or-
fectly satisfactory market. At tlio snnio tlmo
prices on everything excepting eggs \\uro \
llrm. The very fitot tliat prices were so
strong undoubtedly had much to do with the
lightness of the demand.
Kaos The market wns weak and a peed
many of the sales were reported at 17tf. Tliero
wns a llttlo buying In n small way at 18c , but
that wns really an outsldo price. The receipts
were fair anil the supply on hand consider
ably larger than was thocaso with most other
kinds of produce.
I'oyt.Tiiv Supply not largo nnd prices
steady , but not nitteli snap to the undo.
The strong prices of the past week appear to
ha\olntlm > ncod the public toward the buying
of seine other kind of meat than poultry.
Chickens sold at HftOo ; gccso and ducks , 8 ®
llr" turkeys. lllUa ! ! ,
HUTTBH The condition of thobtittonnarkot
did not present any changes jcsterduy. The
bcstcountry rolls continued lo command 17ffj )
IScaiid good rolls 14Qilc. ( ! Low grades sold
even below lOc.
OAMK Small rabbits sold as high us $1.00 , as
there were almost none here.
II tv Hccolpts light and arrival sold readily
at W.00 < a7.7.1. An occasional ear of extra
bright hay brought KOO , but that wns con
sidered nu outsldo price nnd could hardly bo
quoted as tlio market with safety. With tlio
opening up of the country roads dealers still
look for largely Increased receipts and loner
prices.
