rlona were 2VfiifiC to 7Vtriil0c higher, 1
The market opened weak because of re-
ports of rain ln Kansas. These advices
vere found later to have boon somewhat
ixaggerated. ln addition the weather bu
reau predicted fair weather tonight and
tomorrow for the entire state. Numerous 1
reports were also received from all parts of !
the southwest telling of ravages of ths '
green bug, and these wsre supplemented by
a number of similar reports from Illinois, .
Indiana, Ohio and Michigan, where It waa
claimed the crop is rapidly deteriorating.
These advices caused active buying by
shorts and local bulls and resulted In a
strong market for the remainder of the
day. Indications of an improved demand
for export also strengthened the market.
The market closed strong, with prices
almost at tha top notch. July wheat opened
a shade to V'uHo lower at aoVuaoVic, ad
vanced to glsattielVtO and closed at slVV
Ho. Clearances ot wheat and flour were
equal to ISH.ObO bu. The world's visible

bu., compared with 281.0U) bu. for tha same
day a year ago. Minneapolis, puluth and
Chicago reported receipts of 72 cars,
agalnat 636 cars last week and 246 cars
year ago.
There was very little trading In corn,
but the market waa firm almost all day. A
moderate decline at Liverpool caused a
slightly easier tone at the start, but this
w us soon overcome by the strength of
wheat. A lively demand for the cash grain
helped to strengthen the options. The close
was firm. July corn opened unchanged to
a shade lower at 4hV4j vs,c. sold off to 480
4HV.U and then advanced to 4ho. The does
was at 4So. Local receipts were 297 cars,
with II cars of contract grade.
Oats were weak early ln the day be
cause of free selling by local holders. The
market rallied later on buying by 00m
mtSHton houses and pit traders. The de
mand was based mainly on the strength
of wheat. The close was firm. July oata
opened V4ao lower at 4l'40c., advanced
to 41VkC and oloeed at 41c Local recelpta
were 410 cars.
lrovllous were quiet all day, the feature
of trading being the changing from May
to the more distant futures. The strength
of grain and a 60 advance In the price of
live hogs were the bullish factors. At the
close July pork was up TVu loo at 314 Oa.

NEW TORK, April 23. The speculative
element In the stock market waa greatly
disappointed today over the way In which
prices were turned backwards from their
upward course of yeaterday. The action
today waa accepted as conclusive of the
professional character of yesterday's rise
and of the large proportion of covering
by shorts In the buying which caused It.
The casual encounter between Mr. Hill and
Mr. Harrlman and the fact It gave rise
to no outward anow of hoatlllty aeema to
have been the Drtnclnal bnala foe the most
of yeaterday a buying, which. It will be
remembered, converged largely on the Hill
and Harrlman railroad stocks. This seems
to have been recognised today as rather
an unsubstantial ground on which to base
a renewal of a bull movement in stocks,
although there was a show of excitement
In Union Pacific, late In the day.
Today's reaction did not by any means
wipe out all of yesterday's very aubstan
tlal gains. The movement mjght be bet
ter described simply as a doelstlng from
yesterday's operations for a rise. The
effect Waa to throw the markot hack Inln
the deep neglect which waa so notable
last week. So far aa veaterdnv'a rise an.
due to expectation of Improvement In the
wneai crop news, tnere was ground for the
reaction today In the disappointment of
the hopes of abundant rains In the sec
tions from which complaints have come
or me need of them. The reality of this
need was brought out In the weekly bul
letin of the weather bureau. Its report of
unaeaaonably cold weather and want of
rain In much of the wheat country east
of the Rockies emphasised the effect of
today s report that the expected showers
had proved scarify. There was some re
. J.of ,he tone of apprehension over
the Industrial outlook which haa weighed
recently upon the market. Attention was
attracted by a report of a large reduc
tion In the working force by an Important
western electric equipment company arid
the offered explanation that the demand
J?ro.(1uct wa" falling off on account
or Its high price level. A rise In prlcea
to a level dlacouraglng to consumption,

CATTLE There was a moderate run of
cattle today and the quality was very good
as a rule. The two days' supply "has been
rather lighter than for Monday and Tues
day of last week, but considerably heavier
than for tne same two days a year ago.
Tha fat cattle market opened out rather
slow, with packers Inclined to bid lower
on ail out tne good light anu nanny weignt
beeves. It devedopeo later, however, that
there were liberal outside orders tn the
market and this fact, together with tha
vigorous local demand, made trading more
active and strengthened prices as the
morning advanced, so that In some cases
Values were as much as 6410c higher than
yesterday. The heavy cattle were sin
sale throughout, although hardly quotably.
There were only twenty or thirty loads of
cows on the market and the local demand
whs as tfood as It has been any time lately,
while the number of outside orders was
rather larger than usual. The result was
a strong, active market and an early clear
ance. Veal calves were about steady and
the market for bulls, stags, etc, was un
changed. In stockers and feeders the trade waa not
rerv active, as fresh supplies were very
limited. Prices were well sustained for de
sirable offerings of all weights, but as
usual the market was stow and draggy on
the ordinary light weight or off quality

HOGS Receipts were rather lighier than
dealers were anticipating both here and at
other points and the market was active
and stronger from start to finish. Light
hogs were mostly pretty close to 6c h'gher
than yeaterday, selling largely at 16 403
6.42, while the heavy hogs were not over
a shade higher and sold largely at 86 S?Hr
4 J7'4. The movement was brisk all fore-
noon and although the cloae waa rather
slow very little of the early advance wis
lost, l ops brought 16 5" as against td
yesterday and the bulk of the trading was
36 HW16 40 as agalnat M SiVa J7Vg yesterday.
