CHICAOO, May 23. Wheat wu rather
quiet early, but ahowea firmness later
with a slight advance. Near the close a
weak undertone developed and the close
wan lower, July showing a Inu of ttWc.
Corn wai firm, with llgnt trade, final lia;
ureii being at yesterday's close. Oats
showed conquerable strength, July show
ing a gain of toe Provisions were fairly
steady at an auvance of 2,tfjl0c.
'I'he early wheat market was easier on
the cables and generally Improved weather
conditions, July opening a shade to Vt-a
lower at T.iaiJc, but predictions of frosts
lit Nebraska and some bad crop news from
the Ked river valley caused pit traders
end commission houses to buy and a firmer
feeling ensued, July advancing to 74'e.
Liquidation near the end of the session
caused a reaction, Armour being credited
with unloading considerable July, and the
clone was easier with July down WC'c at
7.1Sc There was no noticeable Improve
ment In the cash. Clearances of wheat
and flour were equal to 2oO,W9 bushels.
1'rimary receipts were 3i,Js bushels,
against 258.784 a year ago. Minneapolis and
lJuliHh reported receipts of ls3 cars, with
which local receipts of So cars none of
contraot grade made the total receipts for
the three points of lit cars, against 167
last week and 132 a year ago.
The sentiment in the corn pit was mod
erately bullish on the crop situation and
there was scattered buying by commission
houses and local traders. On the other
hand. Increasing receipts and liberal coun
try offerings were bear factors. Under
these conlllctlng Influences the market
ruled ateadv, July closing c higher after
ranging betwen and 44Vy--t7c. Trade
was light, due in a measure to the light
offerings. Local receipts were 445 cars,
with 1W of contract grade.
There wan not a large trade In oats, but
the market was quite strong on small of
ferings and a bullish sentiment on the crop
situation. There was little feature In the
trading and but little Improvement In the
cash demand. July closed He higher at
33'Ao, after selling between 33)c and 34Vc.
Looa! receipts were 182 cars.
Provisions were supported by the pack
ers and the market held fairly steady.
There was some pork and lard on the mar
ket early, but a fair demand from brokers
caused offerings to be quickly absorbed.
July pork closed 6c higher at $18.86: lard
showed a gain of 2Mc at $9.06, and ribs
were lOo higher at 19.40.
Estimated receipts for Monday: Wheat,
85 cars; corn, 480 cars; oats, 246 cars; hogs,
6.010 head.

NEW YORK. Mar 23 Hopes of a turn
In speculative sentiment were again dis
appointed by the action of today's stojk
market, in which scute weakness devel-
Oied on a free outpouring of stocks from
free liquidation from all quarters. The
selling movement gathered force with the
progress of the trading, which was most
active at the close and at about the low
tolnt of the day. A violent break In
nlted States Steel stocks soon after the
opening had a very unsettling Influence.
The explanation of this was a rumor that
me Chicago plants or the company naa
shut down. The trading was somewhat
disconcerted also by the large Increase In
the engagements of gold (or export to
Argentina on iMonday. bringing trie total
shipments for that date up to $2.25),o00. In
tne early selling mere was support tor
Pennsylvania, and Its apparent steadiness
served as a partial offset to the weakness
elsewhere, but that stock was among the
leaders of the decline at the last, losing
3 full points. The most conspicuous liqui
dation, however, was that in St. Paul,
which was forced down m points unaer
enormous offerings, making a new low
record for the movement by a margin of
nearly 2 points. The llnal break took the
average level of the market to the low
record of the year, effectually wiping out
the recovery of yesterday and the day be
fore. The unfavorable criticism of the un
derwriting of the new Pennsylvania stock
at the subscription price to stockholders
was a depressing factor on the general
1. . . n"i.A i . . . i ( .. .1 .......

a commission to a syndicate to secure sub
scriptions to the stock was regarded as a
discouraging indication of the condition of
the market for securities. The special
weakness of St. Paul was attributed In
part to the reports of a threatened strike
amongst the freight handlers at Chlcigo.
The bank statement dlsclossd a decrease
In cash of $1,326,010, compared with the ex-
Sectatlon of a gain of from $l,000,wou to
!,000,iXK). But the loan contraction of
$6.4i6.1oo reduced the reserve requirement
sufficiently to leave a small surplus for the
Increase. The markets steadied a moment
on the appearance of the statement, but
f trices plunged down again in the late deal
ngs. Union Pacific, Southern Paclllc, Mis
souri Pacific, Atchison, Reading and Amal
gamated showed the greatest losses.
Prices of bonds hare moved irregularly
on a larger volume of dealings, due prin
cipally to the transactions in the new
United States sinking fund 6s. New United
States 4s declined per cent, as compared
with the closing call of last week.

CHICAGO. May 23. WHEAT Action
has hinged almost wholly on the
weather and has had little else
of weight to Influence It. Our latest
reports Indicate a marked Improvement In
the weather throughout the winter wheat
belt and a continuance of the fine weather
In the northwest. The rains seem to have
obliterated from the memory of many of
the facts that the drought was seriously
damaging as the crop damage reports the
last aay or iwo nave oeen iew ana iar
between. A general view of the situation
showing the lightness of stocks In all
fiosltlons, the poor outlook for the grow
ng crop abroad together with the healthy
demand and steady consumption seems to
us sufficient reasons lor favoring tne bun
ide of July wheat lust at present. The
crop damage we look on, as more of a
side Issue and attribute It almost wholly
to efforts on the part of Interested parties
to Influence the market, in favor of the
southwest which would like a high,' buoy
ant feeling so as to enable It to hedge
Its growing crop. September wheat should
be sold. T here is no question In our minds
but that sales based on present prices
will show splendid profits before the crop
begins to move.
corn This week nas seen tne first dis
position on ths part of farmers to market
their reserve or last year s crop or corn
with any freeness and the acceptances
total ud well towards 6.000.000 bushels.
There Is no Increase In the dally arrivals
and little improvement in the grade, but
there are still thirty days before the first
of this corn contracted for Is due to ar
rive. Acceptance of 1,000,000 to 1,600,000
bushels of corn a day would be a very
bearish actor, if they were to continue
for very long, or If there were any sup-
f tiles of corn on hand, but In ths present
nstance with the stocks as low as they
are and the demand so urgent, there Is
little likelihood of any more corn coming
In than will be taken care of, and we
question very much whether all of these
contracts will be filled. The speculative
markets hsve been firm and have not suf
fered anything from the Increase In coun
try acceptances, although the hedging
sales must havs been large. At anything
under present prices, corn can be fed or
manufactured to such a profit that there
will arise a greater demand for it than
la srDarent lust now. acting as a natural
check and Influencing the market towards
OATS The drought kept the shorts in
oats uncomfortable up till the middle of
the week when the situation was relieved
by general rains and a sharp slump in the
July and September followed. The merits
to the p. Ices of osts, however, were clearly
shown by tne position in wnicn the short
sellers found themselves even with the
help of the rain for which they had been
praying. After the first break of a cent
or two under high prices, the friendliness
of outsiders evinced by substantial buying,
turned the tide ftom extreme bearlshness
to quite as extreme friendliness and set
values back to almost the high point. As
we have advised our friends, the weather
and outlook for the new crop may be the
Immediate Influences from time to time
but the actual cash market, the supply
and the demand of good merchantable oats
will be the factors to ultimately determine
oat prices, and one need only to notice
the premiums being paid for cash oats
over the futures to see how well our opin
ion la baaed.

grades of cattle selling much worse t
fhat. As stated above the market Is so
Ivin that sales look all the way t
nearly" steady to 1520o lower tnan'ine
p?l" s7 prevailing list week: All kinds have
suK ere, bur undoubtedly the heavy cattle
and especially those lacking in quality have
been Bounded the worst. Common cattle
a?e Quotable frorn 83.85 to $4.25. fair to good
from 34.30 to 84 60. with the choicer grades
largely from t4.80 to 84.80. A prime, bunch
woSfdundoubtedly bring $y
than that, but at the sametime it takes
rood cattle to bring over 34. 16.
The cow . market has suffered much worse
w,u for beef steers, and prices
are very uneven. The good cows, such as
have been selling from 34 .00 up. ba suf
fered .the. worst decline and are fully
lower, and In some cases the decline Is-as
much as 40c. Canners and cutters, how
ever, have sold freely all the week, and
prices are. If anything, a little stronger.
Packers have not been at all anxious for
gc!od "ws this week, which Is rather an
uncommon occurrence, but they explain It
by saying that cow beef has been costing
them too much as compared with steer
beef. The fair to good cows are sel Ung
largely from 83 25 to 83.75, with the choicer
,!.. rnine vvrv largely from 83. 5. to
84.00. It takes something extra good to
bring much over 34.00.-
nulla and vbilI calves have held Just about
steady all the week where ths quality was
satisfactory. . M .
The demand for stockers and feeders this
uir k.a hn mnflned very largely ta
tlie cattle of god quality, and such kinds
are a little stronger than they wre a week
ago. As high as $4.90 has been paid this
week warmed-up came, . nowever, nave
been rather neglected and are only about
steady. Representative snies:

SHEEP Receipts of sheep this week have
been fairly liberal for this time of the
year, as there Is an Increase over the
same week of last year amounting to about
7,0u0 head. As compared with last week,
however, there is a decrease of ubout
4,000 head.
The Quality of the offerings received here
has been very much on the common order,
taking the receipts as a whole. Packer,
have not taken hold very freely and Con
sequently the tendency of prices has been
downward. Home days they would appar
ently have to have a few and the prloes
paid would be much better, and the next
day the market would again be way down.
As a result tha market may he quoted
very uneven, but as a general thing sheep
are fully Ij&Xc lower than a week 'ago,
and so also are all but the chotoaet grades
of lambs. Choice lambs are In good de
IPnd st steady prices.
The liberal receipts of grass shees st
