ket showed very little animation today and
r 'rices were steady throughout tne session
he quotations n the May delivery being
up fee. Corn was WftHc higher. Oats were
up Provisions were 2Vc higher to
The Inactivity In the wheat clt was due
largely to the absence or any Important
news. A report claiming tnat a larg
amount of wheat In certain provinces of
Germany had been winter killed caused
some uneasiness among the shorts early m

Other factors giving mild encouragement
in tne Duns were moderate receipts In the
northwest and official forecast for cold
whether for the southwest and an estl-
mated decrease in this week's shipments
from Argentina. Those Influences were
offset by small clearances at the seaboard
and an Increase In stocks of wheat at
Minneapolis. The market closed steady.
May wheat opened Ho higher at 77Ho, sold
between 77Ho and 77c and closed at 77Sc.
Clearances of wheat and .flour were equal
to 72,000 bu. Primary receipts were 689.UU0
bu., against 600,000 bu. for the same day
1 last year. Minneapolis. Duluth and Chicago
reported receipts of 400 oars, against StH"
1 cars last week, and 473 cars one year ago.
. Ayntlment la t be corn nit waa inclined to-
h' ull side and prices advanced moder
'iVTn" firmness was caused by a lack
rTn-.erlngs, rather than by any demand,
.Vrovlelon Interests and shorts were the
chief buyers, while the selling was mainly
by longs. Unsettled weather throughout
the eorn belt held a strengthening effect.
The market closed Arm. May opened Ho
higher at 4744c sold off to 7S4e, and then
advanced to tho. Closing quotations were
at 47U447S3. Local receipts were 2b cars,
A with It of contract grade.
ThO Drlc of oats declined soon after tha
opening or tne market on selling by pit
traders, but the loss was soon recovered
and prices held firm for tke remainder of
the day. Trading Is drifting gradually to
ward tha July option because of the con
gested condition of the May delivery. Com
mission houses with northwest Connections
were the principal buyers. May opened
e higher at 43420, sold between 411o and
!S)C and closed at 4242Ho. Local re
ceipts were 86 ears.
Provisions were firm for the greater part
of the day on a lively demand from ahorta
and local packers. The shortage In hog
racking was the source of the strength.
The market eased off late In the day on
realising sales. The close was steady.

SHARP RECOVERY h PRICES ENSUES

NEW YORK, Feb. R.-There waa a
abrupt a reversal of sontlment from that of
yesterday In the stock market today as
there was on Tuesday from that of Mon
day. Today's recoveries placed prices quite
generally on a level with the beet price"
touched In the recovery on Tuesday.
Today's recovery was as little accounted
for by any new developments as have been
the other movements of the week. Several
Items of news that might have received a
discouraging Interpretation were Ignored.
An Important part would be allowed nat
urally to the covering operations of the
bears In working a rally after so consid
erable a decline as has occurred. There
was besides, an appearance of support for
the market and of accumulation for Im
portant accounts which determined the
Dears In buying to cover their ehorts.
Borne influence wa attributed to the ad
journment of the Interstate Commerce corn
ml nl on hearing In thle city. But opinions
In the Wall street district of the bad ef
fects on securities threatened aa a result
of that hearing were not altered but rather
were emphaalied by the later phaaes of the
Investigation. It Is therefore believed to
be impossible that the widespread publicity
rivrn to the hearing ehall not awaken some
distrust and dissatisfaction on the part of
Investors and ordinary holders of securities
with methods In use amongnt the high
financial powers revealed with the proerreas
of the inquiry. Commission houaes profess
a conviction that the public cannot be in
duced to buy stocks while these revelations
are fresh In mind. It Is feared alto that
chancea of enlisting forelc-n capital laauea
of American securities would be decidedly
Impaired by the dletruet aroused by the
reaulta of the Investigation. Reports were
published of a widespread strike threatened
amongat railroad employes In the west and
northwest, but this seems to bo Ignored.
Importance was given the highly favorable
reports from the Iron and steel trade and
the great confidence expressed by authori
ties In that trade of the soundness of the
conditions existing. The head of the United
States Bteel corporation affirmed that new
orders were In excess of those coming In
at this time last year, although showing
some recession from the last quarter's
average. This sustained condition In that
trade Is calculated to go far In quieting
tne apprenensions or a contraction in gen
I era-l business, owing to the great reliance
I placed on the Iron trade as an Index of
business conditions as a whole.
Money was firmer today, both on call and
on time. There was supposed to be some
caning or loans going on In preparation
for the March settlements, which will be
unusually large. The Bank of England's
weekly return Indicated that It Is still In
control of the London money market and
determined to hold the monev rate up as a
protection against foreign demands. Dis
counts were easier In Berlin. The Bank of
France return was a weak one, but sterling
exchange at Paris rose. The profit-taking
in urn nnm nour was wen aDsorhed and the
market closed strong and active.
Bonds were Irregular. Total soles, par
value. 81.152.000. United States Is coupon
declined H while the 3s registered advanced

SHEEP Receipts of sheep were light
gain this morning and, as was the oase
yesterday when the market opened, less
than half the reported number of cars
were In sight. In other words, there were
only six or seven fresh cars on sale In the
morning. There was a good, active de
mand for anything at all desirable and
Practically everything in sight changed
hands at an early hour. The prices paid
did not show any material change as com
pared with yesterday. The whole trade
might be summed up as a good steady and
active market. There wss nothing very
choice among the early receipts, so that
sales do not show up very good on paper.
There were, however, a few ewes good
enough to bring 86.25.
