CHICAGO, March 20. Increasing receipts
Ju the northwest and the proepect of a rec
rd-breaklng crop In the aouthwest had a
weakening effect today on the local wheat
market. The tone at the close waa easy
Sjtnd the May option waa down 4c. Cora waa
Tn hc. oats snowed a gain ot "40. r rovis
ions were a snaoe lower to 1H0 nigner.
Sentiment In the wheat pit throughout the
day was bearish and although - prices at
times were slightly above the closing quo
tations of last nlgbt there waa a tendency
toward lower values. There was no Innu
enttal buying in evldenoe and the market
received Its principal support from shorts.
Fit traders and commission houses were the
chief sellers. The main encouragement of
the bears waa found In reports from Kansas
City that the prospects for a large crop of
winter wheat are dally growing blighter.
Heavy receipt In the northwest despite the
poor Condition ot country roads also tended
to reduce prices. Factors that strengthened
the market - were firm cables and a de
creased estimate of the Argentina surplus
available for export. The market closed
easy with prices at the lowest point of the
day. The May option opened unchanged to
VfWic lower at 78tf7OTiJ to 74c. sold be
tween 7R4c and 7!4c and closed at 7a4o.
July ranged between 77H5 and 74c and
closed with a net loss of 4ttka at 77SU7740.
Clearances of wheat and flour were equal to
18.000 bu. . The world s visioie supply as
shown by Brtulstreet'a Increased S8.000 fau.
l'rimary receipts were 422.000 bu.. compared
u.lth l mi ho. a Vear Bin. Minneapolis.
Duluth and Chicago reported receipts of 3tf
cars, against. 263 cars last week ana .la cars
a year ago. .
Small local receipts and firm cablea caused
a aianriv corn market and prices throughout
the day held within a narrow range. Early
tn the day there waa a fair demand by
commission houses and offerings were read
tiv taken. Latter, however, the market
weakened somewhat because of reports In
dicating an Increase In the movement of the
ornn in tha near future. The close was
steady. May opened a shade lower to 4c
higher at 44'i 44V c to 4c, soia on iu w aim
.!.. .1 t the low point. I.ocal receipts
were 279 cars, with six cars of contract
'riffe were firm all dav. There waa good
buying for Investment account and a fea
ture ot the trading was liberal purchases
of the May option by a prominent commis
sion house. May opeuea uncmiuru ot
sold un to 3oVfi9i4c and closed at 304o.
1 ..l rx(nta were 2?9 cars.
Provisions sold at prices which marked
new high led for the season. Lard in
particular wtvs strong and had a bullish
effeet on t. entire list. Shorts and local
..nkr mre active huvers. Iater. how
ever, the greater part of the gain was lost
on liberal pront-taklng. A UllOc advance In
the price of live hogs and an excellent e
n,.n f,.r caaii lard were the main bullish
Influences. At the close May pork was up
7'o at $1.?74. Ird was up 00 ai .y.
Rll.s were a shade lower at W.tv."yn.tia

MARKET GENERALLY WEAK ANO SLUGGISH
CUelng la Flrna, with ales the
Hlahest of the Day Boad
Market Steady and
NEW YORK, March 20-The demand for
stocks, which caused today's partial re
covery of yesterday's losses, was not of
an important character. I ne snnnsage in
the volume of the transactions Is Itself
evidence of this fart. So also is the dis
tribution of the day'a recoveries on lines
closely parallel with yesterday's declines.
inis is pretty clear evidence always 01 me
covering operations by professional bears.
The responsibility of this element for some
part of yesterday's pressure on the market
waa evident from the character of some
of the rumors circulated on the Stock ex
change and which were shown this morning
to be totally without foundation. Sudden
failure of health and death for half a dosen
prominent capitalists were alleged In these
rumors, which could only have been origi
nated In an attempt to depress prices In
view of the lack or foundation proved lor
The demand today to collect the short
contracta put out during the circulation
of these rumors was a natural consequence.
That the buyln extended beyond these
limits was generally disbelieved. Foreign
markets gave an Impetus to the recovery,
owing to the encouragement felt over the
proepect of a settlement of the difficulty
over Morocco. News of actual develop
ments, however, had very little reflection
In the market and offered no Important
changes from conditions existing yesterday.
News from the conferences looking to a
settlement ot the coal mining labor dis
pute snowed no detinue outcome in pros,
pect. An advance In the price of Sugar
was an Incident of the day. The recovery
In Amalgamated Copper gave rise to dis
cussion of the growing foreign demand for
the metal, although the prices in lxndon
yielded today after a sharp advance yes
terday. Oross earnings of railroads reporting for
the second week In March showed a de
cided shrinkage In the ratio of Increase
over last year compared with that since
the first of the year, which la attributed
to the Increased difficulties of operation
caused by the bad weather conditions.
The situation In the money market was
not changed and no effect waa shown bv
the payment of the final Installment on the
Japanese loan. Money rates here were
unchanged and discounts yielded In London.
roreiarn exchange here was inclined to
yield but very slowly. Reports were cur
rent of the probability of further remit
tances to the home market of Japanese
funds on deposit here.
The last half hour of the trading In the
Stock exchange waa the moat extensive
of the day, the demand from the short
interest showing Increaaed energy. The
market was favorably affected also bv
news that definite terms of settlement of
the Moroccan dispute were believed to
have been agreed upon. The closing tone
waa decidedly firm and at about the top
Bonds were steady. Total ssles. nar

CATTLE There was a liberal run this
morning, about 300 cars being reported In,
as sgalnst 228 one week ago and 222 two
weeks ago. One year ago today there
were only ?18 cars reported In. it will be
noted that the receipts continue very heavy
and decidedly In excess of a year ago. In
spite of this fact the general market Is In
fair shape, although prices this week are
Owing to the very large receipts of beef
steers and to the further fact that-lower
prlcea were reported on the opening at
all other selling points, the market here
opens slow and weak. Buyers and sellers
were some time In getting together on a
trading basis and when they did the cattle
did not move any too freely owing to the
fact that buyers were diaposed to take
their time on aec tint of having so many
cattle from which to make selections. The
general market might be described as slow
to Wo lower ...
Cows ard heifers. In spite of the large
receipts of cattle were In moderate supply.
At the snrce time there was a good de
mand and In snlte of the weakness on beef
I cattle both cows ind heifers sold at good.
I steadv prices. In some instances those
who happened to have what buyers eape
' clullv wanted thought that they got out
I even hetter than yesterdsv.
I Feeders were also scarce and In active
demand, ao much so that buyers were
watching for that kin of cattle as they
came Into the yards. The result was that
all the desirable kinds of feeding cattle
sold at good, strona- prices.

however, were bearish and were holding
off. so thst when the more urgent orders
were filled the market became easier, a
portion of the earlier advance being lost.
This weak spot was not of very long dura
tion, the trade reviving again as It le
came apparent that the demand waa really
very good. The hogs sold freely at tha
advance noted on tha opening, the nulti
going at K1SJH.1T4, as against $0 K.it
4 1 24 yesterday. The top today. was
74c higher than anything brought ester
day. The sales ott nepr would Indicate even
more than So advance, hut a portion nf
this was due to the fact that th quality
of the receipts waa very good, there being
a large proportion of right desirable loads

In brief tells the whole story of the sheep
trade, not onlv here, but at other market
points as well. Values seem to be on the
down grade, and aa the country keeps
pouring In the sheep and lambs, they con
This morning's offerings at this point
consisted almoet entirely of lambs, there
being very few sheep or ewes in sight.
The quality of the lambs was generally
good, although right choice stuff was
scarce. The demand on the part of pack
ers was about on a par with what It has
been of late, which means that It waa not
equal to the recelpta. Hence the trade was
very slow, even at prices 10c lower than
yesterday. Unfortunately the lambs gen
erally were too good for feedera, which
prevented buyers of that kind from doing
very much, although there were plenty of
orders to he filled.
It was very late in the day before much
business was transacted and. as was the
case yesterday, the market waa prolonged
Into the afternoon.
