HIiiiiilnrilH of Judgment Are
\iiiv of Little Value.
NEW YORK , May 8. Henry Clews , head
, tt the banking house of Henry Clews & Co. ,
.writes of the situation In Wall street :
Stocks have already undergone n very
uubstantlnl advance. Under ordinary con
ditions a reaction In prices would bo about
tluo : but the situation Is an unusual one
nnd ordinary standards of Judgment arc of
HUlo value Just now. For tills reason I uo
not believe that the upward movement has
even approached Its climax. Irrgularltlcs
must bo expected with the fortunes of war ;
the uncertainties of diplomacy nnd the
niulcty to take profits that may manifest
themselves at any tlmo will also affect
vnlucs : so that the situation favors a more
octlve , Irregular nnd advancing market for
uonie time to come. Our magnificent vic
tory at Manila and the evident collapse of
Spanish nov.cr foreshadow still further suc
cesses on water and land. The pcoplo are
rapidly recovering from the shock caused
by the opening of hostilities and the former
leellpg of dread of consequences is rapidly
clvlng way to ono of confidence. Later on
of exultation leading
wo must expect a period
ing to excesses not approved by sober Judg
ment. Already there arc signs that many
of the undertakings checked by the war
with Spain will soon be resumed as usual.
Buyers are taking hold with more confi
dence and those In command of business
nnd Industrial operations recognlzo that
ccitalnly IB inking the place of uncertainty
ntU tlmt opDcilunltles nro abundant to men
of courage and sound Judgment. These are
not gooil times for the ovcr-tlmld. Our
rut'ro.iiln ' roiitlniifi prosperous In spite of
senseless rate cutting , to which stockhold
ers buplncly submit. In the third week of
Anrll sixty-nine roads earned nearly 13 per
cent moro than last year and In the second
\vco < clihty-four : roads reported an Increase
of over 14 per cent. With plenty of traffic
In sight nnd rates already low , it is utter
folly for the roads to waste their profits In
n wild scramble for business nnd their
managers should be brought to strict ac-
couct. The present phenomenally high
nrlces for wheat and other cereals arc des
tined to give a powerful stimulus to misl-
r\f.-a \ In the interior. Western farmers are
emerging irora debt with wonderful rapidity
nn.l tnelr Incuased purchases must add
greatly to the prosperity of the Interior , to
say nothing of the Increased industrial
nctMty already in progress ; all of which
will benefit the railroads and bo anticipated
in Wall street.
On Tuesday last the gold premium In
Spain was 02 today It Is 111. Spanish 4s
nre now down to 30H. which puts them on
n basis of 13 per cent. Just prior to the
Malno disaster they sold at G2'/4. United
States 4s today arc 121. ex-Interest recently
oaltl. The cold reserve In the United States
Biibtrcasury Is $180.000,000 , ns against no
gold reserve In the Spanish treasury. The
I'lilllpplno Islands , Spain's most valuable
colonies , have fallen into our hands through
n victory uncciunlcd In naval warfare , since
last week , and Porto Illco. which still be
longs to Spain , will most likely have the
United States Hag flying upon Its forts early
rext week the same will be Cuba's fate
within n very short period. Spain will then
liavo no coaling or supply station on this
Bide of the Atlantic ocean or In the Pacific
ocean. Centuries of dishonor and cruelty
on the part of Spain are at last meeting
with terrible but just retribution and the
"effect must Inevitably bo to finally convert
cruel , treacherous and inhuman Spain ,
whoso mode of government Is a relic of the
barbarous ages , Into a nation purified and
redeemed through flro nnd blood , qualified to
rule over a Christian people.
Naval warfare with all its modern nppll-
nnccs Is a science. The firing of a big gun
with precision requires mathematical calcu
lation , l > < tales a thoroughly trained eye.
The American sailors , llko the American
war weapons , arc thoroughly up to date ;
but there is a sad lack of up-to-dato trainIng -
Ing and Intelligence amoncst the sailors on
Spanish vessels. The victory achieved at
Manila , therefore. Is not surprising. A sim
ilar ono may bo expected In the Atlantic
waters when the Spanish fleet comes within
meeting distance. If It over does. Admiral
Nelson said of the Spaniards : "In times ol
peace they are great braggadocios , In times
of war great cowards , but great thieves all
tbo time. "
Commodore Dowcy's magnificent naval
victory affords the first evidence of the ma
terial of which our navy is constituted and
strengthens the growing hope that the war
will bo a short ono. The fleets under our
other commanders will show themselves
capable of equal skill and bravery ; and there
is no reason for expecting that the Spanish
Atlantic navy will show Itself to bo of rela
tively better fighting quality than that which
displayed Its Impotence In the fight at
Manila. Tlmo will soon reveal when and
where the meeting of the opposing fleets
on the Atlantic will take place. Our suc
cess In that battle should bring the strug
gle to a speedy end. The Spanish vessels
being got rid of little will remain but the
capture of Cuba ; and that cannot be a re
mote achievement. Even If the govern
ment should deem it Inexpedient to land
there any considerable military force , owing
to the fatality of the climate during tbo hoi
months , it Is certain beyond question that
our deprlval of the Spanish army of , sup
plies will compel it to surrender within al
most a month or six weeks. It seems wholly
reasonable to calculate upon these results
with entire certainty. An important re
verse to our arms could not possibly come
from any superiority of fighting resource on
the part of Spain. By universal testimony
Spain's soldiers are made up of the poorest
material conceivable. Those In Cuba who
constitute the force with which wo should
have to deal are largely mere boys , en
feebled by the climate , discontented from
lack of pay and only half trained. What
they and their officers are Is evident from
their impotence In dealing with the In
surgents for the last three years. The navy
Is , according to all accounts , In quite as bad
a plight. Doth branches of the Spanish
service are blighted and enervated by the
dishonesty of officials and the country's In
ability to keep pace with the progress of
The greatest danger we have to fear Is
from the plotting of Spanish diplomacy am
seeking to entangle us with foreign pow
ers ; and that danger Is Increased by the
political disorganization spreading so rapidly
throughout Spain. It looks very much as
though the situation may become complicated
through a triangular civil war the presen
kingdom , the Carllsts nnd the republicans
being pitted against each other. That Is a
situation which would almost certainly bring
into the melee ono or moro Intervening
powers ; and there are more than one of the
continental governments that might show
little hesitation about making such a con
dition of things an excuse for Intervening
between the United States and Spain. Ou
path Is thus beset by pitfall * , the Importance
of avoiding which la very plainly appro
elated by the president.
It Dewey'a victory la M big as rcpre
ented , Spain may well hesitate to risk its
'Atlantic fleet to meet ours and thereby bd
destroyed. I venture the prediction tha
Porto Rico and Cuba will bo surrenderee
without much loss of blood ou our part am
that will end the war. This Is a great da
for the Eagle.
Already , the evidence la clear that th
United States Is now entering upon a new
era In Its history. It has broken loose from
the trammels of Its youth and by this dts
play of Its power affirms it * rank amen
the world' ! greatest nations. Europe al
ready recognizes that we can no longer b
regarded as restrained by the limitation
which have hitherto been accepted as becom
Ing the formative stage of the republic ; am
our own people are aa quick to appreclat
the great change that baa come over ou
political relations with the rest of the world
It U significant that , alone with this grea
consummation , there cornea a feeling afte
closer relation * with the other great branche
of the Anglo-SaxoB race , ahd that Englani
and her colonle * are equally ready to hole
out the hand of sympathy toward us , wit
cordiality that we have received from n
country. Theie unconictou * exhtbl
of race affinity may pror

CHICAGO , May 7. May wheat advanced
: o $1.70 per bu. on the 13onrd of Trade to
ny. It closed yesterday worth $1.49)4. July
uddcd 5-Sc to Its value. The week closed
with the most exciting session In years.
Mny , or cash wheat , after opening at $1.50 ,
climbed steadily to $1.70 , 6c at a jump , and
closed at $1.67 , a net advance for the week
of exactly 60c per bu. Joseph Leiter has
undoubtedly proven himself complete mas
ter of the situation , with entire control of
: bo available wheat supply and shorts at
ils mercy. Even those who had Bold July
option , expecting to fill contracts with
wheat from the new crop , wcro driven to
cover today by the continued strength
ibrond. Coarse grains were dull , but
strong. Corn gained Ic and oats ' /4c. Pro
visions ruled dull , pork losing Bo ; lard and
ribs gained 2 ! e each.
Another surprising advance at Liverpool
oday started the wheat market hero strong
ind drove from the mlndH of local scalpers
for tbo tlmo being all thought of the big
reaction they were calculating upon with
great confidence the day before. July ,
which closed yesterday at $1.01 , opened with
buyers at from tl.WA to $1.03 , and in the
course of forty minutes it sold up to $1.04 1-8
vlthout material setback. September In the
Kama tlmo rose from around 84J4c and 85c ,
where it liumr during the first twenty mln-
; ites , to 85e , Its closing price yesterday
mvlng been bS 7-8c. Mny started only Uc
ilBher , or at $1.60. The next short to como
n , however , did It at $1.65. The advance
n May wheat at Liverpool was equal to
V c a bu. , and In July 5c. The quotations
per cental at Liverpool showed the price
of May wheat to bo bringing the equiva
lent of $1.54ft , July $1.48 1-8 , September
H.14J4 and December $1.03'/4. Primary mar
ket receipts were 415,000 bu. , compared with
319,000 bu. a year ago. Local receipts for
he day were 214 cars. Minneapolis and Duluth -
luth reported 372 cars , compared with 495
the Saturday before , nnd 2S3 the correspond
ing day of 1897. Frantic efforts to buy the
golden cereal began again after a brief rest
at $1.15 for July and $1.55 for May. The
market got at last where bearish reports
no longer Influenced It. It became a mere
matter of disappearing margins with shorts
and aggressive confidence with longs. July
rushed up from around $1.05 to $1.00. dropped
In two minutes back to $1.05 % and five min
utes after It was bringing $1.06 % . In the
last fifteen minutes of the session It surged
up nnd down In great , swelling billows of
excited trading between $1.00 and $1.00 % ,
the closing bell tap cutting It short when
(1.06 ( 3-8 was the current price. May , after
reaching $1.70 , closed at $1.67 , an advance of
l7'/ic for the day. The net gain In July was
> 3-8c ; September rose to 87Hc and closed al
67Wc , or 3 3-8c net advance. Leiter reported
cash sales of 150,000 bu. No. 1 northern to
The trndo In corn was not much more
active than usual , but It sympathized in a
measure with wheat. The day's advance
was Ic a bu. In May corn and 7-Sc In July.
A heavy business was reported done by
shippers and country purchases were only
moderate , but the principal source of the
strength came from the action of the wheat
market. May opened at from 33 7-8o to 34c ,
nnd gradually rose to 34c , which was be
ing bid at the close. July from 34V c and
34 3-iic at the beginning got up to 35c near
the end , and closed with sellers at 34 7-SiJ
35c. Liverpool quoted spot corn Id lower.
Local receipts were C32 cars.
Oats ruled firm on light trade. May longs
sold on hard spots. Seaboard clearances
were 600,000 bu. Local receipts , 3'l8 cars
Despite the liquidation May showed the
most gain Tic for the day. July opened
l-8c higher at 2G7-8c and advanced to 27c
at the close , a net gain of Vic.
Provisions had the Liverpool market to
contend with , in addition to heavy receipts
of h'ogs , nnd under the double load prices
were maintained with dlfMculty. In the end
July pork was 6c lower for tno day , lard and
ribs each 2V4c higher. Liverpool quoted a
decline In cut meats of 6d for 112 Ibs. for
one kind nnd Is Cd for another. Hams were
likewise Is Cd lower. The receipts of hogs
at western packing points were 45,000 to
day , against 35,000 a year ago.

IMPORTANCE OF THE COFFEE CHOP.
Sonic IntercntlnK StutlHtlc * About the
Poor Mnn'H Drink.
Although every pound of coffee used In
the United States must bo Imported and
much of It IB actually brought from the
most dl. tnnt ends of the earth , the Ameri
can pcoplo hnvo the reputation of being the
greatest buyers of coffee In the world. They
use moro coffee than the people who llvo
In countries where cofTco Is ono of the chief
products , they use good coffee nnd they pay
good prices for It. For the llscnl year ended
June .10 last there was Imported Into tha
United States 737,654,670 pounds of coffee , at
n cost of moro than $81,000,000. This Is a
pretty big coffee bill , but It Is getting larger
The bulk of the coffee used comes from
Brazil , nnd this Is cheaper than any of the
other coffee Imported , costing only 9.G cents
a pound , while the coffee from the Dutch
East Indies costs nn average of 18.8 cents
n pound , thnt from Hawaii IS cents nnd the
Mocha from Aden 16.8 cents. The Importa
tions of coffee from Central America , Mex-
co and the West Indies nre Increasing. The
Mexican coffee commands 15.8 cents a
pound , nnd last year the pcoplo of the
United States used moro than 28,000,000
Mexican planters nro beginning to realize
the great value of the coffee crop. They
can lalse coffee almost ns easily as It can
bo grown In Brazil nnd they are nearer to
the market. Yet the Mexicans use com
paratively little coffee. "If In Mexico there
was n similar demand for coffee , " Bays the
Mexican Financier , referring to the market
In the United Slates , "wo should have to
become Importers of the article ourselves ,
nnd on a great scale ; but the mass of our
pcoplo arc not coffee drinkers , and the poor
of our cities are only acquainted with a
most adulterated article. "
Coffee Is properly classed ns one of our
luxuries something that could bo dispensed
with If necessary nnd yet It Is used In
practically every American home , nnd that
is why the consumption of coffee averages
nbout ten pounds per capita In the United
States. If our poor Mexican neighbors nro
willing to go on raising coffee to sell to us
without doing anything to make It possible
for them to enjoy the luxury of coffee on
their own tables , that Is their affair , and
In the meantime American people will con
tinue to cheerfully pay their coffee bills.

London Money Mnrkct.
LONDON , May 8.-Wlth the completion
of the Japanese Indemnity the supplies 01
cash have sensibly diminished with a < \ -
sequent advance In loan nnd discount rates
The announcement of the Greek loan fur
ther hardened money. The quotations
coming simultaneously with the American
drain and the uncertainty In regard to the
amount demanded from that source , it re
mains the chief market factor. . If the
war Is prolonged and the loan' Is floated
further largo amounts of bullion will cer
tainly go to America , causing 'the Bank
of England to lose Its accumulations. Even
If peace comes soon the shipments must
be Important , owlnn to the advance In the
price of wheat and the heavy shipments
of produce which America has made to
Europe for some tlmo past. What will bo
done with Japan's money Is not clear. The
general opinion Is that not much of It wll
be released for the present. The marke
prospect , therefore , Is tightness for some
tlmo to come. On the stock exchange fo
the week , apart from the quotations In
American securities , which shot up on the
news of Commodore Dewcy's victory , bust
ness was generally sluggish , though there
was a tendency to higher values. Specu
Intlve dealings were on a small scale am
are likely to continue so until the end o
hostilities. The tone of the Marquis of Sal
Isbury's speech to the Primrose club ha
added to the general uncertainty. The ad
vance In the price of American securities
which resulted from the victory In Manila
was not maintained In the absence of de
tails , but they rallied on Saturday , In ex
pectntlon of favorable news from Hong
Kong. Norfolk & Western , Wabash , Read

GENERAL Receipts today were the
largest for a Saturday in a long time , 229
fresh cars being reported In the yards
Considering that It wus the last day of the
week and the most of the stock purchased
would have to be carried over until next
week the markets vcre. In very good condi
tion.- With the exception of hogs there was
very llttlo difference In values and most
everything changed Hands In reasonably
good season , though ad might naturally bo
expected on the last day of the week with
largo receipts , the movement wus not
CATTLE There were moro cattle hero
than on any Saturday lust month and more
thanat any of the other markets. There
wus , howevpr , a pretty decent demand for
a Saturday , both locul-and shipping- .
Native beef steers were In good requesl
and holders of such an were dcslrablo hat
llttlo dllllculty In selling out promptly at
good , steady prtees.- Heavy westerns
coarse and badly branded , were Inclined to
drag and the feellng"ds has been the case
most all the week on thnt kind , was easier
Butchers' stock' ' 'appeared ' to be In gooi
demand and prices were steady , though It
could hardly bo called an active market
Bulls and ; stags brought good prices am
deslr&blo veal calves sold qulto readily at
$8.25.- . -lln
In- stockers ana Tefcd6rs there' was" very
llttlo doing owing to there being if ew cattle
of that description here.
As , will ba noted from a glance at' ' the
figures at the head of this column this has
been a week of large-cattle receipts. Other
markets have also had plenty of cattle am
the result Is that prices were given a down
ward tendency. The week opened with a
break of 6@10c , and on Tuesday values were
still lower though the market that day
closed a llttlo better than it opened. It
could safely bo said , however , that cattle
sold on Tuesday 10 < & 15c lower than at the
close of the previous week. On "Wednesday
there was something of a reaction which
wiped out a portion of the loss , while on
Thursday and Friday.there was no materla
change In values. In'other words the gain
In the market the latter part of the week
was hardly equal to the decline on Monday
and Tuesday. This was especially true o
heavy and coarse cattle which were moro
or less of a drag all the week and which
exhibited a good deal of weakness.
Owing to light supplies the market on
butchers' stock has not shown much change
during the week. . .Desirable cows ant
heifers have been In active demand all the
tlmo and any weakness that may havt
resulted the early part of the week In con
sequence of the break on fat cattle was
speedily made up. "Very llttlo business ha :
been done during the week In stock cattle
for the very good reason that the cattli
have not been here to sell. There Is a
the prscnt tlmo a very good demand fo
likely stock cattle , but very few are coming
forward and no ono expects any great num
bcr of the right kind until westerns com
mcnco arriving toward full.
HOGS A weak -feature In yesterday's
market was trie expectation that there
would bo a largo run of hogs today and
that expectation wus fully realized. In
fact it was not only a largo run for a
Saturday , but it was the largest run of any
day in a good many weeks , 135 fresh loads
being on sale.
Largo receipts on the last day of
week would ordinarily bo sufficient to
produce more or less weakness In the
market , but In addition to that there wai
the still further bear inlluenco In the shapi
of weaker eastern markets. As a resul
this market opened weak to 5c lower than
yesterday's close and 5c lower than yestcr
day's early market.
Fortunately for the selling Interests there
was a large local demand which was. sup
plemented by a few shipping orders BO tha
the trade was active at the decline and 1
was not long until ninety or 100 cars hai
changed hands. Naturally enough th
market did not show , any Improvement to
ward the close , but rather slowed up ant
If anything was eafter toward the last
but everything sold In good season. A
good many of the hogs sold at $3.87i03.W !
as against $3.9003.95 yesterday.
The hog market this week has been
decidedly In favor of the selling Interest
ns compared with previous weeks. Th
fluctuations for the most part have been
small , the market showing changes 'from
day to day of only 2t to 3c. The week
opened with values-a-ihado higher , droppe
back a llttlo on.JEuoaday and advance !
again on Wednesday ana Thursday. I
turned out that .Thursday was the high
day of the week ap'd'from ' that date value
gradually fell off 'again so that the week
closed In very nearly , trie same notch as the
previous week. The'Veek ' as a whole may
bo described as thn'HIch week of the yea
to date , hogs on Thqrsday selling at tin
highest point touched do fur this year. Tin
demand was good ftll'the week nnd receipt :
though large were- ' none too large. Rep
SHEEP There were tonly nine fresh load
here , and two of tlittaft were consigned ill
rect to packers , aha Were not offered fo
sale , but In addition' ' 16 the day's arrival
there were eleven loads carried over from
yesterday. They weroiall lambs , and there
were no mutton aheutnihere to make a tes
of the market , dooa/vmutton sheep woul
probably have brourthtnflrm prices , us there
was a good demand. fTlie prices paid fo
the lambs were Ju t aboutBteady , the sum
prlco having been oald for the same klnt
yesterday. Representative sales :
