CHICAGO, April 26 Wheat experienced
a normal reaction irom yesterday's bad
lump and with numrroui bullish factors
behind lent lta strength to other grains.
Trade wai not heavy, but July wheat
closed '.: higher, July corn o higher
and July oris '.'S'tc higher, rrovlsions
gained Ktyc to 17'c-. .
Lettclemy of moisture In Kansas and al
most freexins temperatures In many parts
of the wheat belt was enough to mart
wheat upward at a good pace at the open
ing of trade. To augment the strength ta
bles were firmer than had been expected
and receipts both primary and northwest
ern were small. Inasmuch as the shortage
'in receipts has been apparent for aome
time at:d comparisons have been made
against a short-crop year, the beam be
came discouraged again and shorts cov
ered freely. Excepting rains, every argu
ment waa In favor ot the bulls. Traders
were of the opinion that It takes some
thing more than a rain or two to make a
barvest. After the Initial upward Impulse
trade waa quiet for a time prices fluctu
ated weakly. Concerning Kansas llrad
treet'a had a special report saying a
three-fourtha yield at the best and ) per
cent probable waa to be expected.
Weather forecasts had a bad effect.
Frosts were predicted In many of the
western slates and In Just the places
vtiere warmth Is most necessary. Then
rcame the report of seaboard clearances of
16,n00 bushels, exceptionally large and of
a fair outlook for export business with
France. Prices worked up, trade became
more active and the greater part of yes
terday'a loss waa regained. July opened
AiC to higher at TorctlW to 75Vir76.
advanced to 76c and closed Itrm, Tc up at
74i764e. Local receipts were M cars.
Bone of contract grade, making a total
for the three points of 18 cars, against
143 last week and 349 a year ago. Aus
tralian shipments were only 152.000 bushels,
against 676.000 bushels last year. Primary
receipt! were 2l&,mxi bushels, compared to
445,0ii0 bushela last year.
Brokers on corn reported the lightest
trade In that pit for Saturday In many
Weeks. One explanation waa the bad wire
ajervlre on account of the storms, which
almost shut off outside trade. Another
cat.se waa the hard Jolt speculators re
ceived yesterday and which they had
hardly gotten over today. W hnt argument
there waa favored the bulls. Wheat
strength and firm cablea aided In an early
upturn, but prices were very narrow most
f the session. Speculative offerings were
very light and consequently there was lit
tle selling pressure. The cash demand was
(ood and southwest was very bullish, 1st.
outs reported good cash sales and more
desired than could be obtained. In gen
eral corn waa without feature, save lta
strength. July sold between W.TiWc and
closed firm, ,c up at 6.ic. Receipts were
4 cars.
After a firm opening In oats In
Sympathy with the strength In the other
pits there was a momentary selling press
ure dun to the recent heavy rains and
their effects on the aown oata. When thi
pressure waa removed there was some re
ponae to light demand and prices ad
vanced. July (new standard sold between
87Hl(87Se and 37c and closed firm, fcCa'ic
UP at 3"Hti17Hc. Receipts were 13 cars.
Trade In provisions was largely local be
cause of wire service. At the start the
grain Improvement and a steady hog mar
ket reduced buying, which (even as hog
prlcea weakened) continued to Improve.
There waa a momentary disposition to sell
on the hog situation, but a very good
packers' support developed a strong mar
ket. Pork waa In best demand, but lard
was also wanted. Trade In general waa
dull. July pork closed UVjC higher at
517.06; July lard 12Vc up at 110.07V and
uly ribs 12Vic higher at 19.47W.
Estimated receipts for Monday: Wheat,
f6 cars; corn, 126 cars; oata, 205 cars: hogs,

ence on the stocks of subdlary or allied
companies. The 12 point rise In New
York, New Haven & Hartford was sup
posed to have aome connection with the
strength of the two principal trunk line
stocks.
T herp were aharn advances In a number
oi inausinea ana specialties wnicn nan
no apparent connection and were not ex
plained bv any news develnnment.

downward In many important atocks to
low nmhf level. Yesterday a support
tnB United States steel stocks waa lad
rrled
to be-
pport for
s lackins:
and those atocks were heavy throughout.
The grangera seemed somewhat affected
by the firmer tone of the grain markets.
i nere was no sequel to tne late spurt in
Southern railway and that stock nagged
until the close. The closing generally waa
active and easy.
The session of the committee having In
hand the attempted settlement 'of the an
thracite miners demands was a repressive
influence on speculation, but the tone of
the market seemed chiefly due to the dis
position of operators to take a whole hol
iday Instead of a half day after the con
siderable activity and excitement of the
week.
Speculative and convertible bonds have
been very active, moving In sympathy with
stocks. United States 2s advanced 4 per
cent over the closing call of last week.

LONDON. April 26. Money was at ?4
per cent today. There waa a better suoply
and the demand was less pronounced. Busi
ness on the Stock exchange waa quiet, and
there waa a cheerful undertone. The set
tlement was concluded without any dl
cloaure of difficulties. Public interest In
most departments seems to have broadened.
High clas securities were easier. Ameri
cans opened Irregular and grew Armer.
Southern railway was the feature. Hlo
tlntos, with copper, were generally harden-.
Kaffirs were hrm, with fair Inquiry. It
was said the big houses were taking all
the shares offered. Gold premiums are
quoted: At Buenos Avres, 143.10; at Madrid,
37.07. The amount of bullion taken Into
the Bank of England on balance today was
7o.0io.
PARIS. April 26 Three per cent rentes,
Wuf Doc for the account. Exchange on Lon
don. 2of 18';;C for check. The official lint
of stocks on the bourse weakened today.
Kaffirs were Itrm throughout. Italians
benelltted by a good demand, resulting
from the news that the Italian Chamber
of Deputies approved the issue of a new
84 per cent stock. The private rate of
discount was 24 per cent.
BERLIN. April 26. Prices on the bourse
today opened weak, influenced by lower
Vienna prices and the British war secre
tary's statement regarding the peace pros
pects In South Africa, which helped to
depress prices. Toward the close there waa
a firmer tendency on bear covering in view
of tne week-enu.
Bank Clearings.

CATTLE The cattle yards were prac
tically empty today, and no trading to
speak, of was done. The table of receipts
above will show that for the week tha
supply Is a trifle In excess of last week
and of same week of last year. The mar
ket huta been rather uneven and while there
la no great change for the week, prices
fluctuated more or less from day to day.
Beef steers made up tne bulk ot the offer
ings all the week. The quality was the
best that haa been aeen here this yenr.
Tho first part ot the week trading waa
quite active and the tendency of prices
waa upward, dui tne iat,t nan tne market
waa slow and prices broke. Aa compared
with the close of last week choice cattle
are probably not over 54jloc lower, but the
medium grades ana unaesiraDio came or ait
klnda are safely 104j lc lower, and In aome
cases the decline Is, perhaps, even mora
than that. The choice export cattle and
the lightweight cattle ot good flesh and
quality continue to sell to the best ad
vantage. As high aa $7 haa been paid thla
week for cattle weighing 1,629 pounua.
Prime steers may be quoted from $6.50 to
$7.00. Fair to good from $6.00 to $6.60, and
the commoner gradea from $6.00 down.
The cow market waa also In good shape
the first of the week, but toward the close
the tendency on the part of packers waa
to pound the market. The very best grades,
such as sell from $5.60 to $6.00, are prob
ably not much of any lower, but there are
very few of that class of cows and heifers
being offered. The general run of cattle
are probably 10i&15c lower for the week, and
common stuff In aome cases sold worse
than that. On Friday In particular unde
sirable grades were very hard to move.
The bulk of the cows are selling; from $3.60
to $5.00.
The best grades of bulls are right around
steady for the week, but others are a little
lower, 'ins same is true ot amen, luuih
veal calves will still bring $7.00, but any
thing that Is a little lacking in quality Is
lower for the week. , t
Tka ainv.r and feeder trade has not been
particularly good this week. Toward the
close of the week, in particular, the demand
waa very llgnt, ana 11 wtm tuougui
the lack of rain waa the cause. Operators
as a rule were looking for an improve
ment In the demand after the rains of
Friday. Tne very Dent ntavwtijui
are perhape not much lower tor tne weea,
but all others can safely be quoted 1525c
lower. It takes a cnoicw uuuvu ui te
now to bring around $5.00.
HOGS 1 nere waa a "
. nut an other markets were
ouoted lower prices at thla point eased off
about a nickel. Packera started In and
tried to buy them DtBlOC tower, out aenera
held on for more money and the market
finally settiea oown 10 j ;
decline. The heavyweignts boio large.y
from $7.t to st.iu f"""; b- -
47 ut tn 47 25. The medium weights
sold from $6 90 to $7.00 and the lighter loads
sold from w oown.
market was not so much different from the
first part, except that the lighter loads
were left which made the close seem alow
and weak. Trading waa not active at any
time, but as there were comparatively few
hogs on sale everything waa disposed of In
good season.

celpta for the week are fully as heaty as
they were laat week, but there la a big
decrease as compared with the aama week
of last year. The tendency of prices was
downward the first part of the week in
spite of the light receipts, but on Thursday
and Friday prices Improved and the Friday
market was the highest of the year. The
decline on Saturday carried the market
nearly back to where It waa at the cloae
of last week. Repreaentatlvs sales:

SHEEP There were no sheep on saie this
morning, so that a test of the market was
not made. For the week the receipts have
been exceedingly light, a big decrease be
ing noted both as compared with last week
and also with the corresponding week of
last year. The demand has been in good
shape all the week, so that prices have ad
vanced. The better grades of both sheep
and lambs may safely be quoted lOoloc
higher and that Applies to both clipped and
wooled stork. The top on clipped lambs
for the year was lii.40. Dald this week, and
clipped wethers sold as high as IS.25, which
is also the top price of the year. While
some of tha ofTerfnerfl were rhnlre the srreat
duik oi tns receipts on several days was
of rather inferior quality.
Very few feeders are coming forward, but
whenever a bunch does arrive it sella at
very satisfactory prices.
