CHICAGO, March 17. Possibility of a de
orenee In export" from Argentina hecauac.
of a atrlke of dock laborers strengthened
the local wheat market today. At the
close, wheat for May delivery was up Vic.
Corn was up fV3fe. Out a was down Wi
.- Provisions were 51e higher.
Early In the day the feeling In the wheat
pit was toward lower prices, because of
lower cables and an increased movement
of wheat from Argentina, tho shipments
from that country for the week being
1. 430,000 bit., sgalnstJ 834,000 bu. hist week.
About the middle of the session he demand
increased and - the market becamo Arm.
Prices responded readily to the Improved
demand and continued to advance through
out the remainder of the day. The markot
closed strong, with prices at the highest
point. The Slay option VfcfqWc lower, at
7XMjC84C, sold up to 7K7o and closed at
the top. July ranged between 77Tc and 780
and closed at 78Sf',''-'. July ranged be
tween 777o and IxhUi and closed at 7it
7!(4c. Clearances of wheat and flour were
equal to 10S.SO0 bu. Primary reeeipla were
311,004 bu., against 3!,0n) bu. a year ago.
Minneapolis, . Duhilh and Chicago reported
recelpta of 2A5 curs against 3M cars last
week and 270 cats a year ago.
Small primary recelpta and the strength
of wheat caused a firm tone In the corn
market. The total movement for the day
was 820,000 bu., against 117.000 bu. for tha
corresponding day laat year. It was
claimed, however, that a large percentage
of the decrease waa due to the poor uou
dltlon of the country roads following the
recent show alorm. Shorts and commis
sion houses were the principal buyer.
The opening waa a trifle weak In sympathy
with wheat, but the close waa strong, with
prMea almost at the highest point of the
day. May opened a shude to o higher,
at 43V4Hc; sold between 13V: and 43?c
and closed at 4.'iS$43Tc. Local receipts
were 142 oars, with nvo cars of contract
Lxispite the lute, firmness of wheat and
corn, the oats market was Inclined to be
weak all day. Ixjcal bears were persistent
sellers and brought uhoul motieraio de
cMiibs In prices. The greater part of the
offerings was taken by a prominent bull.
May opened unchanged to a shade higher,
at 39SUlMo, aold between 2' and ;V'
itV nd closed at the lowest point. Local
recelpta were smalt. arrlvaU today being
DO cars.- .
Following an advance of Si&lOc In the
price of live hous, the provision market
was firm. The volume of trading, however,
was small. At tha uloaa May pork was
uji 10c. at IllOIVi. I.urd was up 7',. at

upheld. Americans opened steady and wero
lifted mostly to nbov parity on good sup
port. They closed easier. Grand Trunk

CATTLE As usual on a Saturday, the
yards were practically bare of fresh sup
plies of cattle, there not being enough of
anything on sale to cnll It a market.
The receipts this week foot up about tha
the same as for last week but heavier than
a year ago by not far from 8,000 head. The
market for the week has been In a very
satisfactory condition as viewed from a
While beef steers have been In llbertvl
supply on nearly every day this week thcro
has been ail equally good demand with the.
result that the market ha been In a he.iltiiy
condition. The trade has been about tho
same on nearly every day. As a rule the
market has opened rather slow in the morn
ing with sellers asking good stiff prices and,
wicn Duyers nesiisiing sdoui putting, any
ihtng on. Lattr on buyers and sellers would
got together on the basis of a good strong
market and the cattle would bo all sold -in
good season. This means that while tiler.
hus been no very marked advance on any
one day there has been a gradual upward
movement In values so that at the close of
th week It Is possible' to quoto ilnslrahle
beeves 10315c higher than they were one
Desirable fst o and heifers have been
In liberal supply all the week, but that has
not prevented the market .from being quoted
steadv to strong practically every day.
The fuel Is, g'HKl cows aud heifers have
been wanted and have, lieen free xelleis all
the week. At the close they arc generally
Intfil'io higher than one week ugu. On the
other hand canners and cutters have not re
ceived any benefit from the strength prevail
ing on other kinds and are no higher than
they were a week ago. Some uuld even
tiuote them a little lower than last week.
The supply of stockers and feeders has
been very much reduced this week, com
pared to what It was a week or ten days
ago. The heavy break In the market lust
week evidently discouraged shipments and
under the Influence of the lighter supply
values on the best grades have Mdvauced
sharply. It Is safe at the close of the week
to quote the best grades of cattle, having
both weight aud quality, as 15i2oc higher
than a week ago. This meuus that they
are si high ut they have been anv time.
While the best of tha lighter Kittle have
also experienced impi ovement, the com
mon and medium light cattlo and every
thing of Inferior quality have been some
what neglected all the week, buyers being
apparently afraid of them. r niter such
condition no very marked advance could

HOUS The market this morning waa no

est loads early at prlcea that were con
siderably higher, but packer evidently did
not care cnwgh for the hogs to put on
over ac. In fact. It was very hard to got
them to put on even thut much, and In a
good many spots they were bidding only
y,iO higher. Tho trade was slow at tho
advance noted, and it was In o'clock or
after before very much business was trans
acted. The hogs sold mostly at ft; ln'uo.l.l,

flHEKf There were no fresh receipts of
sheep this morning and very little In the
way of stale offerings, so Unit there was .
practically no ninVkct.
The receipts this week show a total or
over ol.Ojn. which is a gain In round num
bers of 20.000 over at week and almost .
Is.'") over the previous week. The re-
ceipts this week were also over I8fl") in
excess of the arrivals of the corresponding I
neck of last year, (liven these figures and
the further fact that the consuming de- !
mand for mutton has been rather slack j
and anyone could figure out for mmscii
shout what the market hus been. In the
first place with so many to select from
buyers have naturally confined their pur
chases very largely to the choicest of the
offerings. This means that everything ex
cept the very choicest has been more or
less neglected all the week and dldlcnlt to
sell. As the supply of strictly choice sln-cp
and lninhs has not been very large at any
ilme prices on that kind have not shown
very much decline for tho week, still they
are off a little. The medium kinds, owing
to the excessive supply and limited buying,
have suffered more severely, medium kinds
of cnes for the reason thai they have
been most numerous getting the worst of.
It. These latter are iSWmo lower for Hie
week. The market haa been very uneven,
due to the excess of receipts over the de
mand, and hence no two salesmen have
had exactly the same experience or look
upon the market in exactly the same way.
Notwithstanding the weakness that hos
prevailed In prices at this point during the
current week this market Is still well In
line with others and shippers can make
nothing by sending their stock by this mar
ket. At the close of the week there seems
to be a little better feeling, salesmen talk
ing that prices are- now getting down to
where feeder buyers are taking hold, which
ought to make some active trading even
if It does not bring about any Improvement
In values. '

The reports which luiVc la-en coming
from the south for some months r-at re

from lis old bed. and its Uischnrgv Into the
depression In the Colorado desert known as
the Snlton basin, appeared to Is- assuming
a serious aspect that li. wns deemed
sufficiently Important by the 'Chronicle"
to send a member of its staff there to
ascertain the actual conditions. From the
intake of the Imperial irrigating en mil to
the Gulf of California the old river bid
is now "dry, while the stream has taken
possession of the artillclal waterway con
structed for irrigating purposes, nnd is
discharging Its tofal contents into Saltnu
basin, which Is being gradually converted
into a great lake and threatens to lnvadi
the whole of that rich territory In the Im
perial district reclaimed from the desert
during the last four or five years.
The engineering problem created by Ibis
freaky action of the Colorado has thus far
baffled the efforts of some of the best
engineers In the country. The river has
dereated all attempt to close Its new chan
nel and turn It back into Its old bed. In
fact, the endeavor to bulkhead the gap
which tho stream has made In the right
bank resulted apparently In making matters
worse, by aiding Instead of retarding the
scouring action of the current. Attempts
to dredge a new channel down stream on
the left bank have been defeated by the
current Itself, which Is so heavily charged
with slit that It mired the dredger with Its
This unexpected conduct of the river,
which the Imperial eannl builders evidently
