Tba wheat market waa broad and of
unuaually large volume after price opened
much higher and advanced nearly lWc.
Other gains were strong In sympetuy with
wheat The advance met with a alight
check about noon on account of realising
and profit taking sales, but gnud buying
orders generally sustained prices.
May wheat opened at 74 c bid. an ad

vanced c The market was affected
principally by prevailing cold weather and
predictions of front tor Tuesday night.
vVlntr wheat Is backward and situation
Is Irregular, with warmth and moisture
needed. Reports of further damage by
green bugs were received, but It Is believed
that ths damago In this respect, haa been
overestimated. The foreign demand la
very atrong, as crop conditions are gener
ally unfavorable on the continent, and M2.
Oui) buahels of wheat were sold yesterday
at seaboard for export, mostly 'Manitoba
and durum. The close was weaker, with
some uneasiness, due to realising Kales
and short commitments.
Corn was strong and at higher prices. In
sympathy with wheat. Cables were higher
and the market promises to hold steady
aa long as receipts continue light. Fronts
were taken on the slight hulire In prices
and checked ths advance, although the
trade waa small. Kxport sales at seaboard
were Uu.00 bushels and the general situa
tion Is strong. July corn showed the most
strength and advanced c to 4Me bid.
Closing prices were barely steady and
original gains were Inst.
Oats were strong under unfavorable
weather conditions, and prices for all op
tions made slight gains. May cash ad

were up Ho. The market closed steady to
slightly weaker In May options, but firm
for the July and September options.

CHICAGO. May J.-Wheat rrlcea had an
other al.arp advance here today because of
the continued cold weather in the west
and southwest. At the close July wheat
was up S0-c. Corn was off Oats
were down sJc PTovlalons were up Zv
45 6c to c.
Trading In wheat today was on a very
!road scale, commission houses, shorts and
bull traders competing fiercely for the
grain. The selling was chiefly by holders.
The principal cause of the demand waa the
growing conviction that the wheat crop for
in) will be greatly lessened becauae of un
favorable weather conditions. Reports were
received today from Nebraska and other
sections of the winter wheat Delt that
frosts last night heavily damaged the
glowing crop. The prediction of the
weather bureau that similar conditions
will prevsll tonight intensified the bullish
feeling. Sharp advances In prices at the
chief grain centers of Burope wars addi
tional aourcee of strength. Late In the day
the edge was taken off the market by the
weakness of coarse grain, but the senti
ment continued bullish until the close,
which was strong. July opened Si3,;c
higher at Mqs4V. 'U at S4c and .hen
advanced to ai,c. The close was at MHc
Clearances of wheat and tluur were eiul
to liW.Ox buahels. Primary receipts wore
t4e,0l bushels, against SJI.OX) bushels f ir
the same time last year. Minneapolis, Du
lulh and Chicago reported receipts of 443
cars, against sis cars last week and 318 a
The strength of wheat lent some firm
ness to corn early in the day, but the
market soon weakened on selling by ele
vator Interests and continued rather weak
for the remainder of the day. Claatr
weather In the corn belt, which will facili
tate planting, helped to create bearish sen.
timenc. The market closed weak. July
corn opened Stjc higher at 50.i6.so, soli
at loSc and then declined to uc. The
close was at 49Vjt)c. Local receipts were
1 cars, with 1 of contract grade.
Reports of damage to the oats crop by
frost caust-d a good demand at the opening.
Prices made substantial gains, but later
the advance was lust on prurlt-taking sales.
The market closed weak. July osls opened
V,c lower at higher at 43Virt4c, sold
off to 4.',ac and closed at 12t4JC Local
receipts were 1ST cars. . .
Provisions were firm on a good demand
for lard, local stocks of which were much
smaller than generally estimated. At the
oioae July pork was up 6c at fii.K. Lard
was up THo at $ si-. Ribs were 2Wj6o

NEW YORK. Mav l.-Tne stock market
again todsy showed Itself responsive to the
course of union Pacific and not mucn to
any other development. the lone was
heavy during the early part of the day In
continuation or the depression unoer
which the dealings ended yesterday. Union
Kaclflc shared to some eitent in the de
cline. The better tone which ensued when
the Hiirrlmsn stocks turned upward was
not widespread and was not decided out-
pacific shared to some eitent in the d-
aide of that Immediate traun.
The strength of Union 1 aciflc was as
much without explanation In any f-peclal i
development aa It has been from the first I
and continued In consequence the subject '
of a great variety of rumors, for which nj
authoritative confirmation could be held,
i he apurt in the preferred st ick preceded
ths recovery In the common end served to
revive the tumors of a distribution of
shares In a company which would hold
Union Pacific stocks In other compares.
The preferred stock has not hitherto move I
In company with the common, although the
report of an Intended holding company
has been current ever since Union Pae fl
became active and strong. It was enly
recently pointed out that preferred stock
holders would share with holders of com
mon stock rights to any distribution of
Union Pacific treasury assets. The Jump
In the preferred stock today might be es
cribed either to a belated recognition of
the value of expected rights or a percep
tion of market operators of a rlae In the
common not shared in by the preferred. ;
The lack of authentic Information to
count for the Union Pacific movement
makes It somewhat unconvincing as a re
flection of general market conditions It Is
expected that the statement of net earnings
of the two Harrlman companies, which w ill
be published probably tomorrow, will make
a favorable showing. The sympathetic in
fluence of the action of the Harrlman
stocks was most distinct In other trans
continental stocks and others that have
been Joined In previous movements The
bonds bearing ( per cent Interest seem-d
10 do mooinea to some extent todsy. The
0m convertible 4s of th. romeunv rw
1 ered a part of yesterday's decline and the
general bonds market was net affect as
much ss had been feared by bond dealers
aa a consequence of the terms offered by
the company to secure new capital. Some
benefit accrued to the late stock market
from the failure of the wheat markt to
hold Its extreme rise. There was an In
creased disposition also to ascribe a part
of the keen demand for wheat to the poor
prospects or foreign harvests as well as
cur own. The money markets underwent
no marked chsnge In conditions. Weekly
reports of the great foreign banks all
came to hand today. All showed some spe
cial strain on resources attributed to the
May let setliementa The fact that monev
conditions have remained tranquil ail
through In spite of the extra requirements
helped to confirm the growing confidence
in the real and substantial nature of the
relaxation In the world's money markets
Lnlon Pacific was pushed to above 150, but
tne even figure was evidently the b
Jectlve point of the day's movement and
the stock closed there, holding the general

but buying order received during the last

CATTLE Receipts were of very fair pro
portions, but there has been a decrease 40
lar this week compared with last of nearly
2.U00 head. Compared with a year ago,
however, there has been an Increase of
approximately l.o-') head. The quality
shows very little change from day to day.
Lower markets east and the continued
liberal supplies, together with the approach
of warmer weather, created a rather wenk
feeling In the trade this morning and open
ing bids ;tnd salea were anywhere from
weak to S$j'H lower than yesterday. Pack
ers were not so anxious for the light stuff
as tlsi-v have been lately, nor -nd they
show any particular desire for the extreme
heavy cattle. Medium welg-ht grades were
In the heat request and sold to the best
advantage, while plain, heavy and common
light stuff was slow sale from start to
There was also an easier tone to the
market for cows and heifera. Neither
locsl buyers nor outside butchers appeared
to be as anxious for the stuff as they have
been lately. Aside from the choice light
and heifery stuff prices ruled a shads
lower then yesterday and the trade was
slower than It has leen for several days.
Veal calves were quotably weak at the
recent decline, but the market ' hetd Jut
about steady for bulls, stags, etc.
Fresh receipts of Blockers and feeders
were very light and largely for this reason
the msrket held fully stesdy for all de
sirsble offerings. As usual, there was little
call from ar.y source for the common. Ilarht
and medium weight stuff and the market
was very weak on anything of this kind,
also values were hardly quotably lower
than they have been recently.

a shade stronger than yes'erday. On the
other hsnd. packers hsld off a shade lower
on prices for the heavy and packing grades
