CHICACK), May . Wheat prices la the
market today advanced more than Vc be

almost 2c above that mark. At the close
the July delivery showed a net (fain or i
to lVc. Corn and cats .were each up 4,0.
Provisions were 12yl6c to 0c higher.
The sharp upturn In wheat waa caused
by a revival of the fear of damage by the
green bug and the weather. The belief
that the acreage sown to spring wheat will
be much smaller than usual because of
the continued cold weather also strength
ened the market. The wheat pit was
flooded with damage reporta from all sec
tions of the country. The report causing
the greatest disquietude came from Winni
peg and claimed that the winter weather
in the northwest had caused a shortage
of from 26 to aO per cent In the wheat
acreage of the Canadian northwest and
declaring that the same conditions prevail
in Minnesota and the Dakotaa. A sharp
sdvanoe in prices at Winnipeg partly con
firmed this report. Although weather con
ditions In the west and southwest were
more favorable for the growing crop, dam
age reports from tnose secions wore as
numerous today aa neretoiore. the claim
being made that the warmer weathor Is
bringing out more clearly the blighting ef

NEW TORK. May 4,-The Indecisive tone
or speculative sentiment In the stock mar
ket was deflected today In the irregular
fluctuations of prices. An attempt of some
energy was made to advance prices, but
V i wlln such poor response that it
anuunea and the reaction showed some
additional force from the fact of the pre
ceding advance. Evidently the reports of
poor crop conditions were much on the
market and left small Inducement to enter
upon large commitments until the actual
conditions of the a heat cron are clear! v
nderstood. Efforts wer. tnU,l lr .,tl.u

j. iic uaennooa or exaggeration In
tatements mnde for NTwMilutiv.. ffri .,n
the grain markets was pointed out and con
fidence professed that the monthly govern
ment report next Friday would prove a
much lese discouraging document than cur
rent market reports Indicate. The effect
of the statement was helped by the de
cline In the price of wheat when trnrl Inn-
began In- that commodity, but the later
violent upturn In wheat proved too much
for the equanimity of stock traders and
they reversed their earlier poMtlon.
LnlOn Pacific WBN An Imnnrtanl fatrtf An
ths course of the whole market as for some
time past That stock was affected by re
ports of new steps In the government
activity against the Harrlman combination
of railroads. News and rumors from
Washington were given a good deal of re
newed attention in the dav's market.
Further metuiurea In the overnri it'
prosecution of the Standard Oil company
were reported tu be at hand anrl it
rumored that In his address at the un
veiling Of the Statute of (lenernJ 1 M wlnn
at Indianapolis on Decoration day Presi
dent Roosevelt will deal with the question
of government control of railroads. The
Saturday bank statement came In for some
uniavoraoie aiccusalon owing to the rapid
rate of loan exuanslon which ham ium
going on for several weeks past. Lenders
or money, while offering declining rates
for short term loans, show their feeling of
doubt over the fall money markets by their
disinclination to make loans for periods
carrying over that season. The keenness
of the Paris competition for mid in .th.
London market and a harar ton r.f ti.o
discount market In Paris today was a fea
ture in me international exchange situa
tion. ,The fact that sterling exchange con
tinued to advance here brouaht prices
very. near the level at which gold ship
ments would be profitable from here to
Paris In conjunction with London bankers.
Paris secured but a small proportion of
fold In the London bidding today, but the
lank of England was obliged to raise Its
bid sharply to secure the bulk of the sup
ply. Copper reacted In London today.
Reports of excited buying of iron helped to
noia tne unitea elates Stuc: stocks com

CA'i'l'LK Receipts were verv moderate
today and the quality of the offerings waa
very fair as a rule. Indications are favor
able for a let-up In supplies this week, as
farmers are getting out into the fields and
this always means a let-up In receipts.
With favorable advices from eastern
markets and active demand both for local
and shipping account, the trade opened
out briskly with prices bid and paid rang
ing from strong to Mi 10c higher than Fri-
,H I day. All classes of fat cattle were in ac
ta i tlve request and about the only kind to
and unfinished grades. An early olearance
There were only about thirty loads of
cows and heifers on sale and with a vigor

104 nuuM, hnvera htiafnena wna llvelv from the
li start with prices mostly 6fM0c higher than
the close of last week. The tone to the
trade waa decidedly strong and the limited
offerings changed bands In good season.
Veal calves were about steady with the
cose of last week, but the market was a
shade stronger for bulls, stigt , nd rough
There was a better Inquiry from all
sources for stockers snd feeders this morn

higher than the cloae of last week all
around. As usual the Inquiry was best
for the good weight and quality steers, but
the light stuff met with more favor than
recently and everything on sals changed

HOGS The week opened out with a very
fair run of hogs and a further decline In
prices. Tbe situation seems to be mure or
less bearish and win probably continue so
us long as receipts both here and st other
p- Ints are liberal as tiiey nsve been or lute.
The provision situation Is very unsatisfac
tory and (Ackers are all more or less bear.
Ish In their viewa Eastern markets were
reported lower this mornJng and liberuliy
supplied and first bids here were llSiio
lower than Saturday. Desirable light and
bacon grades hardly showed that much de
cline, but a good share of the heavy and
packing bogs were tuny 00 on, tne markets
closing weak at a decline. TVps brought
16 36 today, the same as Saturday, but the
bulk or tne traauig was st to.a.'gv.iu, aa
against $6 2!-t6.27H Saturday.
