CHICAGO, May 21-WhMt was weak
throughout the session, closing prices being
pear the low point, July allowing a loss of
1&1C. Corn opened steady, but Boon felt
the Influence of wheat prices and closed
bout steady nt a decline for July of H'ric.
Oata showed a loss of lV'tlVtC, while pro
vlalona were off 7W to lic.
Weak cables and rood rain reports
started the decline In wheat and many
timid tonga sold out. A scarcity of ad
verse crop reports helped the downward
tendency and a lot of wheat came out on
top-loss orders. There was fair support
early and prices were steady at the open
ing, with July HVaHe lower at 74Wc to
741S74ie. selling up during the Aral half
to V4Vl 3c. 8n offerings became liberal,
however, and there was a gradual descent,
the market showing no rallying powers
until near the end of the session, the low
point, 7:!4c. was reached. Fair buying by
the leading long prevented a further slump
and the market steadied at the close, July
showing a loss of lrnmc at 73c. Cash
wheat was strong and receipts small. Clear
ances of wheat and hour were equal to VZ3.
.14 bushels. Minneapolis and Duluth re
ported receipts of lai cars, which with local
receipts of 11 cars, none of contract grade,
made a total for the three points of &
cars, sgainst 14V for the last week and 1-3
a year ago.
t orn snared In the general weakness, a
good deal of long property being marketed
when the hearian feeling in other grains
became pronounced, fit traders supported
the market early and held it Arm, but there
was too much corn on the market. The
close was about steady at the decline, July
showing a loss of Hfi'c at tc, after
ranging between 44c and 4 .Sc. Trade was
on a fair scale, with considerable selling
by elevator houses against acceptances.
'1 he cash demand was small, with country
offerings showing an Increase. Local re
ceipts were 1U1 cars, with 10 of contract
Oats show the heaviest loss In the grain
pits and It was due to heavy selling by the
long holders, with no-support to the market.
The early sentiment was bullish, but on re
ports of rains In southern Illinois and In
sympathy with wheat and corn prices,
broke, July closing at 33Vu S-l'iC after sell
ing a shade lower at a loss off lVtalVc.
Provisions were weak. Free offerings
early, with but little demand, resulted In a
decline through the list. A firmer feeling
prevailed late today on buying by brokers
at the decline, but prices were all down on
weakness of hogs and In the grain markets.
July pork closed at 116.70, a loss of UVic;
lard was off 12WT15c at $$.92, while rlba
wera off 7V4&10C at $9.26.

Omaha Branch llO-lll Board of Trade
CHICAGO. May 21. WHEAT General
rains where most needed, too much com
pany on the buying side and sympathy with
tne weakness in coarse grains nave caused
the decline In wheat of from lc to 1VC
under yesterday's figures. The news all had
a bearish tinge and there was considerable
liquidation from all sides. New York re
ported offers to cancel purchases from
abroad, which contributed to the heaviness.
At the lowest ngures there oeveloped con
siderable support, based on nothing espe
cially except that It was generally consid
ered that the decline waa sufficient. The
opinion has been freely expressed today
tnat aitogetner too mucn credit has been
given the damage reports of recent' days.
Two hundred and forty-five thousand
bushels of northern were shipped from
here. Clearances, 722,000 bushels, and 15
loads taken at New York. Minneapolis
stocks show a decrease of 950.000 bushels
for the last five days. Local receipts were
11 cars, with none contract; 25 cars esti
mated for tomorrow.
CORN-rConsiderable Increase In the
country acceptances and the hedging sales
against them, together with the wet
weather, haa caused the bearish feeling In
corn which was responsible for today s re
action. Cash figures were Ho under yes
terday. Receipts were 161 cars, 10 contract,
and the country acceptances put around
6iXi,000. The early selling was by cash
houses, but the crowd tailed on and
dumped enough to help the decline. There
were 8 loads taken at New York for export.
Two hundred and clghty-flve cars estimated
lor tomorrow. Clearances, 157,000 bushels.
OATS Have been weak, off from Vic to
IVic, the biggest break being In the cash
market. Rain throughout southern Illi
nois and the Ohio valley was the deoresnlng
feature and caused a general selling of
large volume. Receipts were 110 cars, with
$ contract. The Price Current reported oata
west of the Mississippi In a fairly good con
dition. Aside from the drouth being broken
there was nothing new In the way of news;
140 cars estimated for tomorrow.
PROVISIONS Market opened eteadv.
There was moderate buying of lard by
Cudahy. Selling was scattered. Lard was
again weak; looked like liquidation. Esti
mated stocks In store: Pork. 17.700 barrels.

There were 30,000 hogs; market opened slow

morrow, 21. ouO head. Hogs In the west

Heavy Early Drop Is Met by Orders,
Which Stiffen Prices.
. jontv, may zi. 1 nere was a snort,
TVharp conflict between the contending ele
ments In the stock market this morning
with very feverish fluctuations during the
first hour. The pressure to sell fairly
overcame the market at one time and car
ried prices to a new low record
for the movement below last night. But
the supporting orders, which were In evi
dence on a large scale from the start,
absorbed all offerings until the pressure to
sell had spent Itself and the decline was
effectually checked. Half the day's total
transactions were done In the first hour.
Afterwards there was a slow but Increas
ing upward movement and the market
closed firm and quite active at the top
level. There was a continuance of liqui
dation from the first hour as shown by
the large and concentrated selling In St.
Paul and the United States Steel stocks
and some of the Canadian stocks which
suffered In yesterday's speculative col
lapse. The selling of the United States
Steel stocks waa based on the somewhat
equivocal tone of the weekly Iron Trade
Review by an authority In that trade. A
downward tendency In many branches of
the trade was pointed out. The argument
that an abnormal condition In Iron Is be
ing abandoned by yielding prices for a
more normal and therefore staple basis Is
coupled with the admission that the price
at which buyers and sellers will finally
come together is still a puxzle. The sell
ing of St. Paul was believed to be for
Important Interests owing to Its volume
and It waa feared that the demand of
freight handlers In the northwest carried
a threat of serious trouble. The weakness
of Northern Securities on the curb and
selling of the Burlington Joint bonds were
attributed to the same cause. But the
same confidence with which tho heavy
offerings thrown upon the market were
absorbed served to relieve the fears of a
wiping out of margins and shrinkage of
collaterals which have aggravated the
weakness of the market for several days
past. An Important factor In the support
of the market was the heavy buying for
London account which Is estimated all the
way from 75,000 to over 100,000 shares for
the day. This made itself effective not
only In the stock market but In the for
eign exchange market, where the appear
ance of bills from the arbitrage broker
age houses broke the rate some 10 points
and left the possibility of further gold ex
ports a matter of doubt. The reduction
of the Bank of England discount rate from
4'(i3 was the basis of the improved tone
of the English speculation. The weekly
statement of the Bank of England with
Its decrease In "other securities'' of 88.
780.000, shows that the enormous loans of
last week to float the transvaal loan have
practically been repaid.
It shows the confhfence of the bank of
ficials that the large supply of foreign
capital now loaned In London will not be
disturbed by allowing the Interest rate
to relax. The likelihood of further de
mands upon our own gold supply Is there
fore diminished. Finally the decided re
action In the cotton market served as a
restorative of confidence and relieved the
pressure of liquidation of stocks to cover
losses by the shorts in cotton. The market
lost much of its animation on the up
ward course and the day's net advances
failed to wipe out entirely yesterday's
losses. But the demand was well main
tained at the higher level. A feature of
the day was some further wide declines
In the marketing of inactive stocks.
The bond market was irregular. Total
aales par value, $2,660,000.
United States bonds were all unchanged
on the last call.

NEW YORK. May 21.-COTTON-Opened
easy at a aeciine or lirnis points under
very weak Liverpool cables, heavy esti
mated for the day's receipts and con
tinued favorable weather. Following the
call there was a brief period of uncer
tainty, then came a rally under bull sup
port which, however, was confined en
tirely to the new crop options. After this
came the closing Liverpool cables denoting
a demoralised condition in that market
with the near months net 19fa22 points
lower and the later decline of 74j9 points.
This brought about one of the most ex
cited and heaviest realizing that this mar-
aet nas ever witnessed,, in the course of
ten minutes or so July had sold down to
10.80c: August. 10.62c and Sentember to
9.75c. All classes of traders seemed to be
selling and the cotton; apparently was ab
sorbed by certain bear Interests who found
substantial nronts In the decline of over
$2 a bale from Wednesday s close. -Then
speculation quieted. For a time the market
was comparatively Inactive. Prices fluc
tuated narrowly with, the bull leaders
showing Increased dintaosltlon to auDUort
as they found offerings subsiding. A rally
ensued which carried prices upward from
9&11 points but,' the estimated receipts for
tomorrow were neavy, ine interior move
ments bearish and from all points a de
creasing demand for spot cotton was re
ported. It was also stated that owing to
the highly speculative atmosphere here
surroundlncr the market spot dealers were
nnuing aiiucuity in oDtaining suuaoie casn
advances and this encouraged the bears
who again began hammering values. The
bulls became less aggressive and values
gradually developed a declining tendency,
the prices being forced downward, slowly
at first, but with gathering rapidity to
ward the end of the session and at the
close they had reached a ne 1 low level
for the day. The market wtis fnally Ir
regular, closing easy at a net Ium of 27fi35
points, July closing at 10.70c, showed a loss
of over 12 B0 a bale since last night; Aug
ust closed 10.47c; September, 9.G5c; October,
9.27c, and May, H.bOc. Total sales futures
were estimated at 1,000.000. Port receipts
were 5.575 bales against 2.921 last year. The
southern spot market waa quiet and gen
erally unchanged while the New York mar
ket was 10 points lower at 10.25c and spot
cotton In Liverpool was 12 points lower
with sales there of 8,000 bales.

CATTLE There was a very light run ot
cattle here this morning ana besides that
a number of trains were late in arriving
owing to the heavy rains of last night,
whlcu crippled the rallrouds to some ex
tent and aulayed trains. Buyers took hold
wim much more lite than tney uid yes
terday and prices were soniewiut better.
Beef steers sold freely at an advance of
6410c as compared with yesterday s low
market. All the packers seemed 10 be in
need of quite a lew cattle und as receipts
were very limited it only look a short
time for everything to change hands. All
kinds improved, but the greatest advance
was on the handy . weights ot , good flesh
There were very few cows and heifers on
sale this morning and as a result talesmen
experienced no dllllcuity in getting good
pteauy prices for a 1 kinds. Buyers uid not
show any great anxiety for supplies, but
still they went around early in the morning
and bought up everything in sight at yes
terday's quotations. Sellers tried to get a
Iittlo more, but packers were not at all in
clined to advance prices.
There was no particular change in the
prices paid for bulls and veal calves: Any
thing at all desirable sold freely at steady
Supplies of stockers and feeders were
again very limited and the market could
safely be quoted steady on anything decent.
Speculatcra sold practically all the good
cattle they had on hand yesterday ana as
a result they all wanted lresn supplies this
morning. The few cattle that did arrive
changed hands free'y at fully steady prices.

HOGS Receipts of hogs were not Very
excessive at any point this morning, but
still the tendency of prices continued down
ward. Chicago was quoted fwt 10c lower, but
the decline her only amounted to Sitiw'.
Trading waa not very active, as sellers
thought they ought to get steady prlcea in
view of the light receipts here, but th
break ac other points enabled local packers
to take oft a little here also.
The bulk of the sale went at right around
$4 85. The choicer loads sold mostly from
$6 ITTtt to U Kif. whl the commoner grades
went from $4.22S down. As will be noticed
from the sales below there is not as much
difference In the price of heavy and me
dium weight ho aa Lhr waa a abort
time ago. Frker "w look at quality al
most ss much as thev do at weight.
Practically sll of the eariy arrivals were
disposed of In good season, but several
late trains delayed the close until a late
hour. Iteprrsentatlv sales:

1. Where property In large amount with--'
out fraudulent Intent, haa been turned over1
bv an insolvent debtor to his attorneys In
consideration of past snd future services
and a general retainer for himself and wife,
any creditor desiring to attsck Such trans
fer should do so before services to the full
value of the nronertv are rendered.
2. Former conclusion as to defendants
Whedon and Magoon. so far as relalea to
such property, adhered to. .
3. Taking a general money Judgment and
Issuing execution which Is returned wholly
unsatisfied, is not a waiver of attachment
lien by garnishment.
4 Taking no order against a garnishee
who denies holding property, not a waiver
of garnishment liens.
6. Garnishment lien may be enforced by
bill In equity In proper case.
6. By promptly resorting to equity after
Judgment In principal action, a garnish
ment Hen is extended thfough the equity
7. Garnishee turning over money on order

law where, however, defendants have re
quested special findings substantially em
nrsclng this question they can not after
wards complain of an Instruction submit
ting Its decision to the Jury.
2. Evidence Is held to support th specl.il
findings in this case If the Jury accepted
plaintiff's ff-stlmony as they had a right
5. Defendants having procured plaintiff's
arrest on the grotind that there was dan
ger thst he would leave the state to avoid
an examination In proceedings In aid of
execution, the county Judges finding thst
the evidence did not disclose such Inten
'.lon is admissible In evidence nt the trial
of plaintiff's action for malicious prosecu
tion, based on such arrest and proceedlnc.
especially where the termination of such
proceedings ls disputed.
4. Evidence of plaintiff ss to his Intentions,
with regard to leaving the state, end a to
his arrangements to remain shout the time
of his arrest, defendants not being charge
able with knowledge of either, snd sti"h
proof merely tending to show plaintiff's
innocence of the charge made by defend
ants Is Immaterial In nn action of mall
clous prosecution, and where It mav hav
created some sympathy for plaintiff. Its
admission Is prejudicial error.
6. It Is not error to refuse. In on action
for maliciously procuring plaintiff's arrest
In proceedings in old of execution, nn In
struction that mskes sn Intention on the
part of the plaintiff to leave the state a
sufficient ground for arresting him. The I
