Tho market was unsettled during the first
half of the session, and prices were easily
forced up or down. During the last hour,
however, sentiment became bullish, and
the market closed strong. 'with prices at
the highest point of the day. Commission
houses bought freely all day, and late in
the session their demand was reinforced by

The feature of trading In the corn pit
was the active demand for the May deliv
ery by a number of prominent bulls. Shorts
also covered freely, and the result was a
sharp advance In the tnce of the ontlon.
The buying was stimulated by reports of

A decrease of l,a21,000 bushels in th3
world's available supply, as shown by
Bradstreet's, was chiefly responsible for a
firm tone in the oats market. Reports of a

of any large commitment on the long side.
After so sharp a shsking out ss tnal of
yesterday, a renewal of decline in a more
deliberate way after a temporary rally Is
not unufual. But the rally usually goes
further than that of today. The large
part played by short covering operations
In the demand which lifted prices wits In
dicated by the relatively large buying of
the stocks which were most acutely under
pressure yesterday. Amalgamated Copper
was a notable example, the determined
support of thst stock at par yesterday
apparently having convinced the sellers
that protection was to be afforded the stock
by Interests caisble of taking care of it.
The dealings in this stork. I'nion Pacific
and in Reading will be found to make up
the bulk of yesterday's total transactions.
The advancing tendency was spotty and
Irregular and did uot set In until after
a ragged opening in which a majority of
the llt sold lower than last night s clos
ing Besides the prominence of yesterday's
wenkest stocks In the recovery there was
a show of positive strength in the Wabash
securities and those of southwestern rail
roads in the same group.
The assembling of the coal operators to
coriflder the proposition of the anthracite
miners for an agreement gave rise to vary
ing rumors which were reflected in the
fluctuations of Reading. Announcement of
a deposit at the suhtreasury of t2,ni,ftu0 for
transfer by telegraph to San Francisco
gave a chill to the market owing to the
Importance attached to the money situation
from a stock market standpoint. The trans
fer generally recognised as due to the
calling home by the Japanese government
of the resources of Its bond issue which
have been on deposit In New York for
many months past, where they huve had
the benefit of the high prevailing rates for
monev In the New Y'ork market. Their
withdrawal at this time is supposed to be
connected with the new loan operations
by the Japanese government In their home
market. Much interest naturally attaches
to the extent to which this movement may
be carried, but no authoritative information
Is forthcoming on the market. Today's
money rates were not materially changed,
although the eenenti tone begins to show
the benefit of the liquidation accomplished
In the stork market. Foreign exchange
nlso was inclined to yield today. The sag
ging tendency of stocks at one time wiped
out pretty much all of the gains, but a
heavy buying movement In Southern Rail
way In the final dealings re-established
some portion of them and left the closing
tone steady.
Bond were steadv Total sales, par value.

Wool Market.
BOSTON. March . WOOL-The market
is in a strong position. This Is partly aue
to the belief that the wools now here can
not be duplicated In the west at the priced
ruling in this market. The indications are
that the stock of wool here, when new clip
begins to arrive, in volume will be un
usually small. Territories are becoming
scarce. The demand for pulled wools Is
Improving with the call still for fine As and
A supers. Foreign wools are firm. Leading

HOG8 Recetpta of hogs, numbering 12
cars, this morning looked laige as com
pared with the extremely small run of yes
terday. Nevertheless the receipts were
really light for a Tuesday, showing a very
heavy falling off aa compared with the cor
responding day of previous weeks.
The market opened with shippers and
speculators paying a little stronger prices
tnsn yesterday. Orders from this source,
however, were light snd soon filled so that
comparatively few sellers got the benefit
of the early morning strength. By the
time packers were ready to start out ad
vices from other selling points were un
favorable and they announoed right from
the first that thev must have a concession
of oVfrtOr as compared with yesterday.
Sellers were not disposed to take off that
mueh unless absolutely compelled to, which
means that the market waa very slow and
dull ull the morning. It was late before
very much business was transacted. When
the hogs did sell they went at prices that
were generally 5e lower than yesterday, a
considerable proportion of the loads aelllng
at the range. t4 litjti.324. Tlie top today,
t. was the same aa wag paid yesterday.

CATTLE Recelpta of cattle this moi n
lng numbered 2ii cara, aa against J41 iaat
Tuesday and 217 two weeks aero. It waa
really the smallest Tuesday a run in some
thing over a month.
While a large proportion of the cattle
were only fair to pretty decent killers,
there were quite a number of loads ot
quite good Killers. The market opened
rather slow, buyers and sellers lielns soma.
wiiat apart in their views nnd Inclined to
await later developments before do. nit
very much business. As is apt to be the
case under such circumstances, tne mar
ket was rather uneven and it was hard to
find any two salesmen whoso report would
agrte in every respect. Those mho hap-
rened to have such cattie as appeared good
n the eyes of buyers thougnt mat they
were able to secure good, strong prices
On ths other hand, there were salesmen
who found it difficult to secure even sieadv
prices, their cattle not being Just the kind
thst buyers happened to want.
The market on cows and heifers mat
also slow to open snd somewuat uneven
Buyers seemed to want quite a good nia.iyj
but with the number on sale they ap
parently felt that they could afford to take
their time in making purchases. The kinds
that- aeemed to suit them brought good,
strong prices, while others were slow tci
sell and ths general market was no more
than steady.
Feeders navlng weight and quality are
free sellers at good, steady prices, but
there ire not very many of that kind com
ing. On the contrary, light and thin stock,
era. especially those lacking quality and
off In color are coming in fusler then they
can be disposed of and are consequently
slow and weak.

celpts was wm.'l;it better than yesterday.
mere being a smaller proportion or trasn
and moie load of fair to good killers.
The market as a whole was Inclined to
ward dullness, there being very little snap
or enthusiasm to the trade. Some of the
heaviest packers did not appear to need
very many sheep and were consequently
In no hurry about filling orders. The late
arrival of some of the trains also contrib
uted to the dullness.
Sheep of got id quality were in fair de
mand. This would apply to both wethers, and ewes. Wethers, If anything,
were the best sellers, owing to the fact
that there were not many nere, and the
best of them sold steady and in some
esses possibly a little stronger than yes
terday. As high as Wi wss paid for the
Gibson old wethers, which were very
choice and fat. Ewes by reason of the
large number that have been coming in
during the last few days were not In as
good demand as the wethers, there being
more of that kind than packers really
need. Aa a result of this the ewes were
the slowest of anything on sale. It usually
follows that a slow market is a weak mar
ket, and there were spots in the ewe trade
that looked weak. Some of the best ewes
here sold up to 8 SO, with very decent kill
ers on down to t5.
Lambs were slow all the morning. The
fact Is, the lamb trade has been without
very much life at this point for several
days back. The demand appears to be
rather limited, and hence there Is not much
snap to the trade. Still prices this morn
ing were not bad, being steady to higher
In spots. Some good native lambs sold up
to to. 75, which was the top price of the
day. The Leavenworth lambs brought tt 60,
which was 10c higher than they brought
