CHICAGO, May 24. The araln markets
were thrown out of gear today by the pub
lication of the Rovernment report of iat
year crop yield. The report was con
strued quite twarlshly for a time, espe
cially since foreign markets were depressed
by l"t. In the end, however, an excellent
export demand helped traders to view the
revlited figures moat dispassionately and
July wheat closed a shade higher, July
corn c up and July oats a shade advanced,
provisions closed bQlc higher.
Wheat suffered materially at the opening.
Cables were weak, the government report
showed an Increase of 7w,OUO.0OO bushels In
last years crop over the former figures,
trade was light and the crowd was over
bold on beautiful weather talk. Kansas
olnts reported that harvest woum oegin
n tan no vh mnri mat ine conamons in
many places were fine, with prospects of
tnirty-nve to tony uusnein iu
Estimates of this year's winter crop ex
ceeded 4iO.K),0rtu bushels. Under these in
fluences and the bearish effect the govern
ment report had on the curb last night
opening prices were depressed. July V.W
So to Hfrc lower at 73c to 72.c and hung
between these figures dull for some time.
After the market there weakened on stop
loss orders coming out at 73c, the shorts
and some leading bulls started In to do a
lair business. Sentiment changed com
pletely when a good export and cash de
mand developed and prices rallied. The
northwestern receipts, which have been
running small for some time, were again
curtailed, but advices were to the effect
that a car famine in the west was prevent
ing an otherwise liberal movement. July
worked up to 73".ff'i3Vsc and closed firm, a
hade up, at lc. Local receipts were
1 cars, no contract grade; Minneapolis
and Duluth reported 126 cars, making a
total for the three points of 132, against
112 Inst week and 260 a year ago. Primary
receipts were 269.WJO bushels, compared to
i6.oou bushels a year ago. Seaboard clear
ances In wheat and flour equalled 816,000
bushels. New York reported 62 loads taken
Corn was similarly affected to wheat by
the government report. There was a break
of Ho on the arbitrary Increase of 8,o9,lAiO
acres In the area and 164,000,(i0 bushels In
the production. The crowd, however, was
Inclined to the view that consumption had
been proportionately greater. Cables were
lower and crop prospects good, with the
exception of dry subsoils tn some districts.
Nevertheless good strength developed and
July rallied sharply to &!c, after opening
as low as 81c. July closed strong, c up,
at 824c. Receipts were 94 cars.
Oata were dull and uninteresting. The
early tone was weak under the influence
of the other grains. Receipts were In
creased somewhat and crop prospects con
tinued to be favorable. After the early
weakness a fair support developed and
prices rallied. July oats advanced from
ldo to 37V337Hc and closed steady, a
hade up, at 37c. Receipts were 182 cars.
Provisions recovered some from yester
day's decline. The run of hogs at the
yards was smaller than had been estimated,
yet prices were lower. In spite of this
and the grain weakness prices opened only
lightly easier and upon the development
of a good packers' support advances were
made. July pork closed 6"e7V4o higher,
July lard Mj7',c up at S10.17Wrl0.2u and
July ribs 5c higher at S9.62H- Receipts of
hogs for the week, 170,000.
Estimated receipts for Monday: Wheat,

CATTLE There were practically no cat
tle on sale today, which leaves the re
ceipts for the week a trifle In excess of
last week, and also of the same week of
last year. The demand on the part of
local puckers has been In good shape
practically all the week and quite a few
cattle were also bought by outside pack
ers, so that there was a ready outlet for
all the desirable grades mat were offered.
Beef steers made up the bulk of the
offerings every day of the week and the
Suallty was fully up to the average. The
emand was best for the cattle that were
well fatted and such kinds Improved Wit
15c during the week. Weights or quality
did not seem to make as much difference
as the amount of fat. When It came to
the part fatted cattle the market was
slow and prices on such grades are no
more than steady for the week. The
kinds that have advanced the most are
those that were selling a week ago from
86.60 to 16 90. Choice cattle-, are quotable
from 37.00 to $7.30, and they are also strong
for the week. The commission men are
calling the attention of their customers
to the fact that cattle showing grass will
soon be on the market and that they will
come In competition with the half fat
cornfeds. A widening range of prices is
looked for from this time on.
The better grades of cows and heifers
were In good demand all last week and
prices are a little higher. There was some
very choice stuff offered, however, as Is
shown ty tne tact mat as nign as S6-2U
was paid. The better grades in a good
many cases undoubtedly sold 1015c higher
than a week ago. but still the situation
can perhaps best be described by calling
tne mantel strong ana active. Tne com
moner grades are if anything a little lower
for the week. Cows and heifers showing
grass are now beginning to come forward
and the tendency of prices is of course
downward, which means that the common
dry lot cows ana neirers must go down
Desirable grades of bulls commanded
strong prices all the week and so also did
stags. Veal calves are a little higher
than they were a week ago, as choice
grades sold as high as S7.26.
The supply or stocKers and feeders was
very light sll the week, and so also was
the demand from the country. Good
heavy feeders held about steady, but the
ugnt stocKers, ana particularly tnose lack
ing in quality, were slow sale and a little
lower. Representative sales:

HOGS The receipts of hogs were lib
eral here today for a Saturday, there
being a decided Increase over both yes
terday and Saturday of last week. As
the reports from other points came lower
the market here dropped off Just about
60 on the opening. There were a few
loads sold that were not over 24 lower,
but these were exceptional. The opening
was slow all around, but good hogs were
In fair demand at prices right around 6c
lower, and ranged mostly from S7.o6 to
87.16. and as high ss S7.224 was paid.
Medium weights went irom to Si.oo
and light trashy stuff from S6.95 down.
On tho close the market strengthened up
a little and a good clearance was made
For the week tne receipts nave teen a
little heavier than for last week, but
there la a decrease as compared with the
same wcea 01 lati year. trices nave
fluctuated back and forth to some extent
and for the week the average price has
been lower, inursusy ana Saturday were
the low days, so that the average today
was 511 loo lower than the close of last
week. Representative sales:

SHKKP Tarn car nf sheen srrlved this
morning, but they were consigned dlrcvt
to a local packer, so that there was noth
ing with which to make a test of the
market. The supply all the week has been
exceedingly light, and In fact has been
the smallest In a good many months. A
decrease of over 12.000 head Is noted as
compared with the same week of last year
As there hsi been only about 6.0W heal
on sale all the week It Is difficult to tell
muth about the market. On some days
the feeling a little stronger than on
others, but taking the week as a whole
the market Is about steady on anything
at all good. Chicago, however, broke
badly the lust half of the week and weth
ers are quoted 2f,j7 4oc lower for the week.
Ijambs are 2oc lower In Chicago than they
were the first nf the week. Old ewes snd
common stuff of all kinds are quoted all the
way from 5oc to SI lower than a week ago.
Such reports from Chicago naturally have
a bad -fri-t in. no thle market, and It Is
hard to tell what prices desirable stiKT
