CHICAGO, May . Hlghr prices ruled
throughout th list on the Board of Trails
today. Wheat, after a rather weak open
ing, oeveloped firmness and the cire?
showed a gain In July of 'qW- '"rn
was firm, with a fair advance In prices,
July closing "c higher, while oats ginned
VWcHc. Provisions were 7V4"Oo up.
Abundance of rain In the wheat nelt and
lower cables caused a weak start In wneat,
July boing off at the opening V1'4c at
'(3Vs'S'i3n. Heavy selling by Armour on
the bearish outlook caused a sharp break
In May, prices declining 2,c; a portion of
this was regained Inter on bidding by the
same "long." A bullish sentiment at Hi.
Louis caused a demand from commission
houses and scattered sources and started
prices upward, July late in the session
touching 74c, and the close Was firm at
Tib&H'Mo-a gain of 4ifi'Wc. Damage re
ports offset In a measure more favorable
crop advices and aided lit" the upturn. Hit
traders who were short were the best buy
ers late In the day. Clearances of wneat
and flour were equal to 218.812 bushels.
Primary receipts were lM,36i bushels,
against lM.i&l bushels last year. Hnd

of 114 cars, which, with local receipt of
J7 cars none of contract grade made total
receipts for the three points of 141 cars,
against 136 cars last week and 116 a year
Rains throughout the corn belt Imparted
a declining tendency to the early market
after a steady opening, with July un
changed to Vc lower at 44y4ru-M')fcc. There
was some selling early, resulting In a still
further loss, but liberal buying by a prom

nrlnclnal bull leader carried it back to
about yesterday's figures. After the open
ing flurry there was general steadiness and
a strong undertone. The outside interest
has not been so large as earner in me
week, but was sufficient to conceal the op
erations of any particular house. Clear--
ances for the week, 8.293,000 bu.; today's
clearances, 625,000 bu.; seaboard reported 6
loads taken for export; there were no local
sales of any amount; local receipts, 27 care,
with none contract; 85 estimated for tomor
row. CORN This morning acceptances from
the country were the largest yet, about
1,600,000 bu., but the hedges were well taken
and the early decline wholly recovered, al
though the entire range was not great.
There was some speculation as to who was
buying tne corn, as a snarper decline was
looked for when the size of the counxry
offerings became known. May has gone to
a slight premium over the July, Influenced
by the small arrivals and the moderate de
mand for good cash corn. Cash market
was &c higher; Argentine shipments
were 862,000 bu.; today's clearances, 323,000
bu., and for the week 1,814,000 bu.; there
were sales reported from here of 2u0,000 bu.,
which seemed to have more effect than
country acceptances of several times this
amount; New York reports IS loads taken
for export; there were 10 loads worked di
rect from here to Liverpool: local receipts.
27U cars, with 19 contract; 440 cars estimated
OATS There was hurried selling In oats
on the opening. Influenced by the change
In the weather, general rains having fallen
where most needed, and the outlook ma
terially Improved thereby. This liquidation
caused a fractional decline. Around lowest
figure shorts began to take profits and buy
ing 01 mis nature aeveiopea in such pro
portions that the market was advanced
llo and closed considerably over yester
day' a. Country offerings were light and
did not reflect the same change that the
range naa in speculative markets. Re

were 75.O0O bu. sold for shipment east; 196
cars epumaien xor tomorrow.

NEW YORK STOCKS AND BONDS.
New Bankers' Syndicate Canses Mar
ket to Look I P.
NEW YORK, May 23. Today's ' early
stock market did not give good promise of
maintaining the strength which developed
yesterday, but the announcement that a
bankers' syndicate had been formed to
underwrite the new Pennsylvania stork Is
sues caused a sudden upward spurt In
that stock to a level of 2 points over last
night. The stock held that point but mo
mentarlly and did not get back to the top
level again for the rest of the day. In
the general market the averager high level
for the day was touched In the atternoon,
when the preliminary estimates of the cash
movements or tne week were published,
showing an unexpectedly heavy receipt on
balance from the Interest, thus offsetting
the loss by good exports, which It was
feared would make tomorrow's bank return
very weak. There was sufficient selling
to take profits during the last hour to
make considerable Inroads upon prices, and
the closing was dull and heavy, bolow the
best. The net changes for tne day are
mostly very smsll and are mixed between
gains and losses. There was continued
heavy selling this morning by St. Paul &
nine ana united states steel stocks were
Inclified to be reactionary, the latter on
account of the further cut in prices of Iron.
union r-acino was incimea to lag tnrouitn
out the day In spite of the claim of a
definite settlement of its labor dispute.
The news of the underwriting of the Penn
sylvania stock Issue did not hold its first
stimulating Influence. The underwriting is
in erreot a protective measure to assure
the taking up of the issue at 120, at which
price It was offered to stockholders. When
the offer was made Pennsylvania was sell
ing above 140, so that the right to subscribe
at 120 seemed sumcientiy attractive, nut
from the first knowledge of the issue there
has been persistent selling of the stock
sgnlnst the expected new issue and of the
rights to subscribe to the new stock. The
decline this week to 125 brought within
measurable distance the extinguishment of
the value of the stockholders' rights to
subscriber. The news that sufficient money
had been sent to New York from the In
terior to offset the rather heavy outgo of
gold came as a pleasant surprise. 1 ne
known movements of money Indicate a net
gain by the banks of several hundred thou
sand dollars, the receipts an bnlaniv) from
the Interior amounting apparency to over
84.000.000. The subtreasury absorption.
which includes payments tor Tne goia ex
ported, was 83.3S4.000. But this 0oes not
take account of the 81.000.000 In gold shipped
to South America last Saturday, too late
for effect on last week's bank statement.
Arrangements have also been made to ship
31.600.000 to South America on Monday.

CATTLE There was a light run of cattle
here this morning, but buyers seemed to be
rather Indifferent, the same as they havo
been for the last several Fridays. The mar
ket waa rather uneven, but as a general
thing was steady with yesterday.
The beef steer market could best be de
scribed by calling it about steady. It
should be mentioned, however, that tho
? rices paid were very uneven as is very apt
o be the case when prices have been
fluctuating back and forth as rapidly as
tney nave tnis week, in some pieces sales
men thought they got a little better prices
than they did yesterday, while In other
Instances they bad a hard time to do as
well. As compared with last Friday the
market was right around a dime lower on
the average. Trading was not very brisk
at any time today, but owing to the light
run practically everything was disposed of
before the middle of the forenoon.
The cow market was also about steady.
The feature of the trade was the poor de
mand for good stuff and the good demand
for cheap stock. AU the packers seemed
to be anxious for canners and cutters, but
did not care for the kinds selling from
83.60 up. Buyers claim the reason Is that
cow beef has been costing them too much
on the hoof as compared with steer beef.
As compared with the close of laBt week
good cows are safely 25o lower and In some
places the decline looks much worse than
thst. Canners and cutters, however, are
fully steady. Bulls, veal calves and stags
all sold In Just about yesterday's notches.
There were very few stockers and feeders
on hand and as is generally the case at the
close of the week the demand was very
limited. Unless very desirable the few that
arrived had to sell a little easier. Repre
