CHICAGO , Aug. 3. The high price of. corn
tempted holders to unload today ami the
market dccllnwl In consequence , closing Vic
lower for September. Wheat wont down In
sympathy wltli corn , loslns % c , but oals
wcro firm , closing % o lilglior. Provisions
finished at an advance all round.
Wheat was quite active during the first
liour , but later only ordinary Interest WHS
displayed. Tlio feeling was a little easier.
Initial transactions were the same to n frac
tion as the dual figures of yesterday , with Sep
tember at filc , and soo" sold down % c ,
rallied from "fcc to % c , changed some and
closed at 53 % for September. The market
was Inclined to fluctuate with corn , the early
decline being duo to that Influence , though
the liberal receipts , both here and In the
northwest , were something of a factor. Tliero
was fairly good buying on the decline , and
when corn advanced wheat followed , cables ,
as was expected , helping the advance to
Komo extent. There wns said to be an uc'lvi ' *
demand for vessel room nt Toledo to lo.id
wliuat to this point , but rates were advanced
and nothing of consequence was transacted ,
though It was rumored at one tlmo that
100,000 bu. had been taken. The export
Clearances of wheat and flour were light and
aggregated 201,000 bu. , of which 78,000 1m.
wro In flour. The weather In England was
said to lie fine.
Corn was active and unsettled. The feel
ing was nervous and prices fluctuated sharp
ly and frequently within from I'/ic to lc
range. Initial transactions were at the same
to Me under yesterday's closing , at 40Uc for
September , and sold up a trine , broke sharply ,
then sold off lc for September and l\'tc \ for
May. rallied nearly as quickly , recovering
the break , cased off from ? ic to % c , changed
seine , ruled Irregular , and closed with Scp'
tcmber at 49Uc. There was evidently a de-
Blre on the part of some of the larger holders
to unload today , and offerings wcro very
heavy during the first half hour , several
largo concerns selling freely , which started
the smaller holders to realizing , and as there
wcs less support from the outside the price
declined rapidly. On the break the demand
Improved , room traders who sold early en
deavoring to cover and found offerings very
light. The price was suddenly advanced and
helped along by the prediction of frosts to
night In exposed places In Iowa.
Oats declined early on the break In corn ,
but reacted later on good buying. The mar
ket was fairly active , with a range of % c
for September.
Provisions were generally firm on better
prices at the yards and good buying. Offer
ings were scarce and the close was near
the top.
Compared with last night September pork
Is 224c higher , September lard Is 15c higher
and September ribs 7&c higher.
Freights slow at % c for corn to Buffalo
and % c to Port Huron.

Information which guides the operations of
powerful speculators was undoubtedly re-
vponslblo for today's stock mark-it. What
ever the Immediate motive mov have been ,
the course of prices In ttio I.iit two hours
left little doubt that the bear party , which
for n week past has controlled the ir.nriifrt ,
was now In full retreat. Not until the c'oa- '
Ing hour was the purchasing power cf the
week's bear speculators turned full upon the
market.

FRIDAY , Aug. 3.
The receipts today In round numbers were
SOO cattle , 'G.SOO hogs and 485 sheep , as
against 1,445 cattle , 11.000 hogs and Gl sheep
on Friday of last. week. For the week thus
far there have been received 7,600 cattle ,
G9.250 hogs and 1,078 sheep , as against 9,417
cattle , 61,246 hogs and 1,323 sheep for the
same days of last week. In spite of the light
receipts today , 8,000 more hogs have been
received this week than last.
While the packers arc killing both cattle
and hogs , their operations are necessarily
limited by the strike. The fact that they
bought some stock today would seem to Indi
cate that they have hopes of tlio old men
going back. In that case there would , with
out doubt , bo an Immediate demand for stock ,
but until the strike Is finally se'tled there
must of necessity be a good deal of uncer
tainty regarding the market from day to day.
CATTLE For the first tlmo In- several
days there were a few pretty good corn-fed
steers In the yards. There was no shipping
demand but local wan'cd few
, packers a cat
tle and there was a stronger feeling to the
market. Packers appeared to be buying In
anticipation of a possible settlement of the
disputes with their employes. One bunch of
1291-lb cattle brought $1.40 , the highest price
realized In several days. There were only a
few really good cows In the yards and there
was a pretty fair demand , though limited. In
consequence , the market was stronger on
such and on the best grades lOc to IGc higher.
The common grades did not show much If
any change. There was some little trading
In stoekers and feeders. The supply Is much
lighter than It was a few days ago , and , as
the demand Is fully as good , It not a little
better , there Is a better feeling In the mar
ket. A few loads sold at $2.25 to $2.40. Uep-

HOGS The decrease in the hog receipts
by about one-half , as compared with yester
day , and the fact , thai one of the packers
was quite a liberal , buyer , put the hog market
In much better shape. There were , however ,
a good many holdovers , but the demand was
sufficiently heavy t < r clean up everything
that wasof--any account. There"was 'an ad
vance of from 6ct io lOci'on the better gfades
of heavy and butcher weight hogs , while the
advance on the commoner hogs , which sold
extremely low yesterday , was even greater ,
amounting to all of lOc to IGc. The best hogs
sold largely at $4.65 to $4.75 , with $4.80 the
top. The commoner light and mixed loads
brought from $4.40 to $4.60 , while the trashy
stuff went at still lower prices. Represent

Wool Market.
BOSTON , Mass. , Aug. 3. The American Wool
nnd Cotton Reporter nays of the wool market :
There has lx.cn nearly 5,000.000 Ibs. of wool sold
since the 21th ult. The nmount disposed of
since January now exceeds by several million
pounds the quantity sold In the corresponding
period of 1893. The tone of the mniket Is very
perceptibly stronger. liiees alt nronnd nre Ic
higher than a fortnight ngo : the decline Is
checked nnd nn established price Is more gen
erally recognized thnn for n long tlmo ; this
strength has continued for n fortnight with In-
dlcntlons of permanency. At any intc It will
require some very unusual occurrence to rele
gate the market back to the condition of a fort
night ago. Dealers nre busy packing and ship
ping the wool that has been sold. It may be
paid that 76 per cent , nt least , of the Immense
quantity of wool sold In the last two weeks
was taken to satisfy an actual demand for
stock. Manufacturers bought largely to cover
goods sold , many of them having received re
orders for heavy weights. Fleece wools nre a
full Ic per Ib. stronger than they were two
weeks ago. The demand Is nctlvc ; stocks nre
light. Upward of 1.000,000 Ibs. of nil kinds of
Ileeco wool hnve been purchased In this mnrkel
since the 24th ult. The cnll has been quite mis
cellaneous. The demand for territory wools has
In no wise nbated since our last review. Ijirge
sales have been made on the scoured basis of
from 33c to 33o for line nnd line medium , nnd
from 2Se to 30c for medium. The sales of the
week In Hoston amounted to 4,837S50 Ibs. domes
tic and 100,000 Ibs. foielgn. making a total of
4.937,850 Ibs. , against n total of 6.335,400 Ibs. for
the previous week nnd a totnl of 973,050 Ibs. for
the corresponding week last yenr. The sales
since January 1 , 1891 , nmount to 7S,034.,1S5 Ibs ,
ngalnst 74,567,050 Ibs. a year ngo. The dales tin
the week In Now Yoik ncgrcgnto 1,780.000 Ibs.
The sales for the week In Philadelphia nggregnte
1 805 600 Ibs.
