Peatarea of the Trading; and Closing
Prices on Board cf Trade.
CHICAGO, May l&.-Ralna throughout
Kansas and other portions of the south had
a weakening effect today on the local wheat
market. At the close wheat for July de
livery showed a net loss of He. Corn and
oats were unchanged. Provisions were up
i lie wheat market was weak all day and
the volume of trading was rather small.
The market was afftcted for the greater
part by weather conditions In the winter
wheat sections. Rains were reported over
the entire wa.t and mor showers weia fore
casted for tonight. Prices at IJvcrpool
were a trifle lower and this had a depress
Ing effect here. During the entire session
pit traders were persistent sellers and offer
ings were taken principally by bull leaders.
Toward the end of the day shorts were
fairly active buyers. The market closed
weak. July opened Hfoltc to Sfi'ViC lower
nt H'cix sold up to 81c and then de
clined to 80c. Final quotations were at
'(&S0Sic. Clearances of wheat and flour
were equal to 7..) bu. The world's vis
ible supply, ss shown by Brodetreefs, de
creased 3.8"0.0OO bu. Primary receipts were
214,000 bu.. compared with 153,000 bu. one
year ago. Minneapolis. Duluth and Chicago
reported receipts of 304 cars. against lot
last meek and 1R5 cars a year ago.
Trading In the corn pit was very quiet
and the tone of the market was steady
because of a fair demand for cash houses.
Continued smsll local receipts formed the
basis for the cash Inquiry. The market
closed steady with fit-ices practically un
changed from yesterday's final quotations.
July opened a shade to He lower at 46e
to 461Ilti!Vc. sold up to 4ya;s' an(1
cloed at 4fie. lineal receipts were 117
cars, with 21 of contract grade.
Despite more liberal receipts than had
been expected the oats market was steady.
Shorts were moderate bidders for the May
delivery and with small offerings the price
of that option was advanced nearly He.
This had a bullish effect on the more dis
tant deliveries. Small stocks of contract
oata In store In Chlcsgo furnished the
main incentive to buyers. July opened a
Shad higher at SIVfcc, sold at S21t32'4e and
closed at 32c. Iocal receipts were 178 cars.
Provisions were easier early In the day
because of selling by pit traders who were
Influenced by a weak market for live hogs.
Later a firm tone developed on a fair de
mand by the local packers At the close
Julv nork wss un ISc at 815.60. Lard was
up 2c at I 62Vs. Ribs were 687Vc higher
at I WpS a,).
Estimated receipts for tomorrow: Wheat.

Market OiTea 6icni of rllin: Into Bull
and Uncertain State,
Prospect f Tlht Maney Market
for Bevcral Maatha Teads
to Dlacaaraga gpeeala.
NEW TORK. May 15 Today's stock mar
ket gave signs bf falling Into the dull and
uncertain state which Is the rule after the
first recovery from such a sharp break
aa that which followed the San Francisco
property losses. The reason Is that the
first recovery results from the decline hav
ing been over extended rather than from
any radical change In the conditions that
caused tt decline. A variety of explana
tions waa found for the hesvy tone de
veloped la the market. This variety ar
gued some confusion of mind among the
Interpreters and did not warrant the con
clusion that all of the offered explanations
played a part In the movement ot the mar
ket. The fact Is that much has been ac
complished toward covering up the con
tracts on the short aide of the market
which were put out during the period of
acute depression of sentiment. The exist
ence of tne short interest and Its potential
requirements waa made a useful medium
for the aggressive professional operations
for ad anting prices.
With these two foreea approaching a
balance again the market is free to re
spond to the conviction that the conditions
which caused the break In prices were not
fictitious, but real. The element of re
stricted cspltal resources to meet the heavy
requirements pressing to secure a supply
was brought into prominence today by ine
announcement of the Pennsylvania not
lssu for $60,000,000. The fact in Useif tnal
tesort to this form of financing was con
sidered by the most powerful railroad cor
poration In the country was an adverse
one on sentiment. It amount to the ad
mission that market conditions are not
propitious for the offering of capital Is
sues of a more permanent form and which
may be expected to follow to provide re
sources for taking up the temporary note
ISHue.-i. The inference Is discouraging to
hopes of an Improved demand for other
securities. The terms of the Issue also
were unfavorably regarded. While the In
terest rate on the notes waa called 44 per
cent the understanding of the price at
which they were sold pointed to a yield
up to 6 per cent, while the supposition of
a commission In addition to the bankers
brlngiae out the Issue opened the way to
an usATimptlon that the company was pay
ing a still higher rate for the use of the
it was reared that other Intended capital
Issues might be Impeded by the same un
favorable conditions and mere waa some
talk of another possible era of railroad
note Issues Impending, as the volume of
rojeeted capital Issues Is known to be
arge. The money market gave no reflec
tion of scarcity of funds and rates for time
loans continued to be shaded under the in
fluence of offerings front out-of-town
sources. This did not preclude the con
jecture that efforts to replenish the money
market might lie designed to further the
flotation of coming Issues. The news re
ports of large railroad extensions In the
1 laiiBuuiiLiiirinai nriu iniur" 111 iui uiai u -
slon In the same connection. The market
showed some relief on the announcement
of the prompt placing of the Pennsylvania
note Issue and the Intention to keep the
proceeds on deposit with the banks. The
falling off in the activity In the market
waa ascribed In part to a disinclination
10 enter upon stock marKet commitments
until after the adjournment of congress.
Something was made also of the standard
Oil dividend declaration, which waa at the
same rate as for the corresponding period
of last year, but less than for the pre
ceding quarter of this year. Bearish traders
attempted to couple this Willi yesteraay s
reduction In the dividend of a small sub
sidiary company of the Amalgamated Cop
per company to form an Inference of a
sentiment against a rise In the market on
the oart of the powerful group Interested
In these companies. The market had the
advanlaa-e of a considerable rise before the
decline set In and of a late rally again, so
that the net changes are small as a rule.
The closing tone was firm.

CA'l'l LE There .wit another large run
of cattle today, over it") cars being reported
In. which maae the total for tne two days
about 430 cars, which was somewhat smaller
than for the corresponding two aay ot
last week, but larger than tne week before.
There were comparatively few loads of
anything but beet steers, the great big bulk
ot an tne arrivals consisting 01 mat aina.
In spite of large offerings, the market
ripenea In very good season. W hile some
of the buyers' (list bids were a little weak.
It soon became apparent that there waa a
very good demand for both heavy and
light beeves with the result that the trade
was not only fairly active, but a little
stronger aa a rule than yesterday. Under
such condition the larger proportion of the
receipts changed hand sum llni before
Cows and heifers were fully steady with
vesterdav. there belna- a very fair demand
in the face of moderate offerings. Holders
of desirable loads found no difficulty In dis
posing of them at prices that were en
tirely satisfactory.
Verv few atocaers and feeder war in
cluded among the day arrivals, but (bar
were quite a good many cattle of that
description atill In th hand of (peculator
and yard traders. ine country nemanu
for both stockers and feeder haa been
notably alack during the last week or mote
with the result that although receipt have
nniv been moderate there haa been a
tendency toward an accumulation of uch
cattle In the yards. In consequence of this,
the demand for the fresh arrivals this
morning waa not especially brisk, but still
the few her sold at not far from steady
prices, which means 10ttfl6e lower than last

considerably lower and their nrst, bids weie
on th basis of about 36.6 for strings of
hogs a against 18 80 yesterday. In other
words, first bid were right at 60 lower.
Seller did not sea It that way and for a
time th movement was rather slow.
Gradually the market firmed up until
88.37H was the popular bid at which the
hog began selling quite freely. As it be
came apparent that the demand waa some
what better than appeared earlier, the mar
ket shewed still more strength, becoming
quite active with the general run of hogs
selling freely at 3n.27Vt06.SO, with the better
loads at 34 Sl'Vt and a top at 36. 3R. As will

SHEEP IJsrht recelms and all lamb yes
terday made A dull market, but light re
ceipt with A fair mixture of ewe and
lambs made an active market today. Buy
ers were out early and everything in sight
met witn very ready sale at most satisiui:
tory prices. Considering the quality of
th receipt It would be a very moderate
estimate to call the market lOtfloo higher.
Quite a string of shorn iambs sold at
lo. about one-half of the total receipts
being lambs of that kind. The Johnson A
Oranam lamb sold at 36.26, as against 6 16
yesterday. A single deck of good western
lamb brought In. 40, which mas the hign
price of the day. Only one car of good
wooled lamb was Included among the re
ceipts and It sold to a feeder buyer at
17 .00.
There were no wether or yearlings, at
least nothing of any consequence 011 the
market. There wr, however, aeveral cars
of ewe which met with very ready sale.
Among the offerings was one single deck
good enough to bring 36.40. Th Berry ewes
old at 36.40, as against 35.80 on Thursday
last week and 36.26 the first nf last week.
It 1 hardly necessary to add that the
heep and lamb markets are in a very
strong position, there being a good demand
for deal ra bit killers, while prospects all
favor light receipts.
