CHICAGO, April 2S. It wss bail weather
for the bull-traders In grains today. Al
though the reports Indicated diminishing
Supplies of old wheat and offering In corn
were ait 1)1 light, tha crops were receiving
too much benefit from the seasonable
weather to allow prices to hold advances.
These variant factors, however, caused
several rapid changes of sentiment. In
the end July wheat lost Wo, July corn
c and July jata Stfc. provisions closed
lower to 2rc higher.
Trade In wheat was only fairly active,
though the frequent change of front of the
speculators made the tension somewhat
marked. At the opening the news of gen
eral rains In the principal wheat states, ex
cept Kansas, started wheat at a liberal
decline from Saturday's closing prices. The
southwest sold liberally and helped hold
jirlces back. The situation, however, for
some time seemed to favor tha bulls. Cables
were higher, primary receipts were still
light, showing rapidly decreasing stocks,
and the northwest bought well of cash stuff
and started an advance. Prices worked up
a little and were helped considerably by
the remarkable decrease In the visible sup
ply 3.V92.0HO bushels. On the strength of
this last Influence July rose to TBc, after
opening Vd'Hc to Vac lower at 7dtr7aSc.
The pit crowd, however, was considering
the heavy world's shipments and the gen
eral weather situation and fought hard
against the advance. When reports of
n6re liberal offering!. In the northwest by
the farmers and of rains in Kansas ar
rived there was a renewal of the soiling
movement that had weakened the market
at the opening. Prices steadily declined,
with active and heavy selling at times,
4intll July reached 75c. A show of an Im
provement In receipts (though they are
still small) had a bearish effect. July
.closed weak. lfilHc lower at 754c. Local
"receipts were 23 cars, 1 of contract grade;
Minneapolis and Duluth reported 1230 cars,
making a total for the three points of 263
cars, against 237 last week and S57 a year
ego. World's shipments were 8,963,000
bushels, compared with 7.47O.0UO last week
and 7,794, Coo a year ago. Primary receipts
were 82,OiiO bushels, against 625,010 last
year. Kreadstuffs on passage decreased
6-12,010 bushels. Seaboard clearances In
wheat and flour equalled 268,000 bushels.
Trade In corn hinged on the action of the
leading bull crowd. Influential buying pre
vented this cereal from following the course
of wheat, although the break In the other
ilt eventually hud Its effect. At the open
ing prices were very steady and practically
no attention was paid to the general rains
In the southwest and to the unresponsive
cables. Offerings were very small and
were readily taken as prices advanced.
The leading house that Is supposed to be
carrying twice the amount of corn In ac
tual existence, did good buying and sent
July prices from 63Sc to 6c. Trade was
lather quiet Hie greater pai t Of the Ses
sion, but as wheat weakened there was
anme active short selling, and prices slipped
off. The marked feature of the market was
the good show of strength at the close In
spite of the bearish weather conditions,
(September closing c higher. July closed
ic down at 63',-jc. Receipts were Improved
.. at 1(4 cars.
Interest in May oats relieved the mo
notony of a quiet market and helped up
liold the other options. There was fair
buying of the bear option -and prices ad
vanced somewhat. The generous rains,
tiowever, have increased the prospects of
the coming crop and as receipts grew
larger and wheat and corn weakened oats
receded. The cash article was In good de
mand, but there was something of a dispo
sition to keep out of the market until the
possibility of a corner In May is past. May
Mold to 43ifi43l4c and closed firm 4c up at
YiVc. July new closed lower at 37c.
Receipts were 193 cars.
The provision market was manipulated
again by packers today for higher prices.
The early tendency was to sell on the
eraln situation and for profits. Ilrokers at
once began buying for packers, especially
of lard and ribs, and prices fluctuated ner-
Vouslv. Offerings bv scalners. as well
by packers, became liberal after the price
tlad been pushed up and on an absence of
any urgent demand and the wheat break
most of the early gains were lost. The hoar
market was strong. July pork closed Ho
lower ai nivt, arier selling ai 117.I1V1;
July lard 2c up at $10.10 and July rib-, a
anaue mgner hi eB.tiwri'v.ou.

In two weeks. The feveriBh activity which
has characterised the recent leadership
of the market waa decidedly lacking. If the
rather leading dealings In Reading be ex
cepted. The tone of the market was halt
ing and the movement in prices was not
The predominant movement- while It
failed to embrace the whole list, . Itself
hanged ft number of times during the day.
The failure of the conference committee
of the miners and operators to agree on
terms on Saturday was a dl-' ppolntment
and the tone of the comment of the par
ties to the conferer"e created a dlsagree-
bie impression. 1 1 result was free sen
na of Reading In the open dealings, which
1 noted the whole market. This weakness
was overcome by a strong advance In
some of the high-priced coalers.
The part played In the market by the
high-priced stocks, of which the floating
upply is very small, was notable ana
heir wide movements resulted from a
light volume of transactions.

and there were constant relapses when the
market was allowed to become quiet. New

other of the high-grade stocks to move,
but it saved only a point of its seven-point
Among the industrial specialties there
were wide advances in Pullman, Interna
tional Power, American Express, Pressed
Steel Car Preferred. Railway Steel Spring
and some others which are even more act
ive. Cotton Oils, Virginia-Carolina Chem
ical and American Agricultural Chemical
were advanced on talk of consolidation.
Colorado Fuel and Tennessee Coal were
bid up late In the day as the local trac
tions had been earlier, but relapsed again
without much effort on the general mar
ket. The varvlnc movement In the grain mar
ket was reflected from time to time in the
stock market, but not In a decisive way.
The usually active industrials were quite
generally heavy.
United States Steel seemed to reflect dis
approval of the bond Issue. The firmness
of foreign exchange reawakened discussion
of probable gold exports, but the money
market was unaffected. The market closed
dull and easy.
The bond market was moderately active
and strong. Total sales, par vslue, 34,045,-

changed on the last call.

CATTLE There waa not a heavy run of
cattle here today, as a decrease la noted as
compared with last Monday. As com
pared witn tne same day or last year
there Is not much change. The demand
was In fairly good shape, so that trading
was active at fully as good prices as
were paid at the close of last week.
Beef steers again made up the bulk of
the offerings and the quality waa good on
the whole. The' demand waa liberal from
local packers and also some outside pack
ers were on the market. The desirable
grades could safely be quoted strong and
lulte a little higher. It waa onlv a ahnrr
time Deiore tne duik or tne good cattle
was out of first hands. The commoner
grades of course did not move as freely,
but still they sold for fully as much as
the same kinds brought laat week.
The cow market waa not particularly
active and could probably best be described
by calling It steady. Buyers took their
time about looking at the offerings, but
as supplies were not large practically
everything was disposed of In good season.
The good stuff moved without much
trouble, but the commoner grades dragged
more or less ths same as usual. As com
pared with the close of last week there
was not enough change in the prices paid
to be worthy of mention.
Bulls, veal calves and stags sflso sold In
just about last week's notches. There was
n rainy gooa aemana ior ine better
grades, but the common kinds were
neglected. .
There was not very much life to the
stocker and feeder trade this morning.
There was very little good stuff on sale,
but the few that were offered sold at Just
about steady prices. The common kinds
were in light demand and sold slowly at
about last weak's quotations. Representa

To Restrain I'se of Wyoming; Water.
LARAMIE. Wyo., April 26. (Special. )
Local authorities will probably bring suit
against the state of Colorado for appro
priating and diverting water from the
streams of Wyoming, which. It Is claimed,
rightfully belongs to this stats by reason
of prior use. The case promises to bu
very similar to that of the state of Kansas
against Colorado. It Is alleged that thu
Eaton ditch In Colorado, Into which the
water will be turned in a few days, will
take water from the Big Laramie river and
Its tributaries. Sand creek, which is dotted
by many fine ranches, will suffer the most
snd many of the ranches, it Is claimed, wilt
be ruined. Nothing will be done
In the matter until the actual diversion of
the water takes place.
