CHICAGO,.. April- 8Desplte the bearish
showing of -tin government report, (he
wheat msrket toils y closed strong, because
of the active demand by shorts and eleva
tor Interests. Final quotations on the May
delivery were ! higher. Corn was T4lc
nigner. tsts were lip 40. Provisions were
7Vo to lHc higher.
llie government report on the fall sown1
crop of wheat In the United States was
given out thirty minutes sfter the open
ing of the local exchange. The report which
gave the condition of the new crop as
being 97.3 compared with a ten year aver
age of 88.2 had little- effect on the market,
It having apparently been discounted In
advance. The market opened weak, be
cause of general rains throughout the
southwest and a Id decline at Liverpool.
Sentiment continued bearish until abiut
the middle of the day. when the market
became strong on a brisk demand for May
by elevator houses and shorts. Prices ad
vanced steadily throughout the remainder
of the session,, the msrket closing strong
near the high point. May opened ij7c to
IVttJlHo. lower at 89o, to 89c, advanced to
(l4o and closed at 91c. Clearances of
wheat and flour were equal to 473.W0
bushels. Primary' receipts were 642,00
bushels, sgalnst 59.000 bushels th same
dsr a year ago. Minneapolis. Duluth and
Chlcsgo reported receipts of 08 cars against
263 cars last week, and 34 cars a year ago.
The corn market was strong all day,
chiefly because of weather conditions which
were unfavorable for the movement of
to crop. The May delivery was in good
demand and the more dlstsnt months were
less strong. The prices weakened slightly
during the day In sympathy with wheat,
but later rallied and held well under
'th close which was strong". May corn
opened VHo lower to 4uHo higher at
G6V40 to .S. sold between 6Ko and Tc,
and closed at 67fce. Local receipts were
29 cars, with 84 cara of contract grade.
The tone of the oats market was weak,
although the rally In wheat and the
strength of corn caused a good recovery.
The caah demand was poor. Rains In the
southwest were a depressing factor. May
oats opened 14Hc higher at 6) and 62io,
sold between 52o and 6244c and closed at
62No. Ixcal receipts were git cara.
Th provisions market was dull, and
prices were aidled by th strength of corn
and by non-professional speculators. Pit
traders sold early and bought on the later
bulges. At the close. May pork was 17H!
higher, at $18.50, Lard was up 10c, at IS.37V4
Ribs were Tc higher at $7.22.

NEW YORK. April -Transactions at th
Stock exchange today wer a few thousand
shares more than yesterdsy. but th price
...uYcinrni was even mor sluggish and
undecided. The rnvernmnt n..r nn h.
April condition of winter wheat and ry was
inn vsnicie ior an attempted revival
of activity. Th publication of th gov
ernment figures nillrltlv rvalH hnvar
that, no new Interest was stirred In the
maraet by this Influence. Trsders who had
bought In anticipation of a eood rron re
port sold to take profits and prices of
ran 011, aitnnugh the percentage of
the condition of wheat was fully as high
as had been exoected.
The Indifference of thn stock market to
inis ractor proved a disappointment to the
trading element and It fell back upon the
Erie financial problem as the repressive
Influence on the mstket. There was no
prospect of any definite Information during
the Stock exchange session to show whether
in pian was to become operative or not.
but many varying rumors were used 'n the
attempt to move prices. The confusion of
mind over the Erie conditions was enhanced
by the Intimation that the period would be
extended for the assent of maturing notes to
the plan. This removed the likelihood that
the project would be declared abandoned
Immediately on the expiration, at 3 o'clock
today, f the period set by the bankers for
receiving all of the outstanding notes in
aaseni. un me other hand, the question
arose Of the DOSltInn thA rnmnanv wnuM
be In with the passing of the maturity of
the notes without redemption. These notes
sold off on the curb again to below 80.
Reports of rains In Kansas offered newer
conditions for the wheat crop than were
reported by th Agricultural Departmcn and
had more effect In sustaining prices. For
eign Influences were In favor of higher
prices, though In moderate degree. Borne
distinct Improvement In the Investment tone
was discernible both In London and on the
continent. The announcement of the mer
ger plan for Mexican railroads and the
determination of the Interborough Metro
politan to attempt a bond Issue rather than
to resort to short term notes gave Impres
sion of some growth of confidence In our own
Investment situation. Dealings In the bond
division of the stock market show some 1n
cresslng variety In the number of Issues
dealt In. but the aggregate transactions
hold at a low ebb and the price movement
continues Irregular. In spite of the exces
sive dullness of the drallngs In stocks, floor
traders ' find few offerings for sale and
argue from this that no liquidation is being
Comparatively light buying serves to ad
vance prices and a strong technical posi
tion ia argued from this. Rumors that the
Erie plan would become operative grew
more positive late in the day and rallied
prices. The numerous shifts In the price
movement so far offset each other that the
day's net changes are not Important.
Bonds were Irregular. Total sales, par
value, $2,506,000. United States bonds were
unchanged on call.

CATTLE RecelDts of rattle this morn
lng numbered 238 cars and there was 1
very good sprinkling of pretty well finished
and desirable beeves among the offerings.
The market as a whole was against the
sellers and the better the rattle were the
poorer showing they made on the market
The best of the cattle on sale. were corn-
fiKl steers. Buyers were out In pretty fair
season, but It was very evident that their
oruers were more or less limited and that
they were not feling very atrong as re
gards values. Handy, light and medium
weight steers were the best sellers. Csttle
of that description sold anywhere from
sieany 10 10c lower. Heavy cattle, even
those of very good quality were very much
neglected ana were extremely hard to
move, tilds on that kind were anywhere
from 10c to 20c lower than yesterday, with
buyers not appearing at all anxious to
secure them even at the decline. The fall
ing off In the shipping and export trade
at' eastern points Is apparently responsible
for the condition of the market on heavy
Cows and heifers were In light suriDlv
anil tne goon Kinds generally stesdy re
gardless of the weakness prevailing In
the beef steer trade.
Some of the verv best feeders were per
haps steady, but the general tendency
of the feeder market was lower, with the
trade alow, while stockers were extremely
hard to move, even at the very low prices
that have prevailed of late.

HOtJS Hogs sold mostly Inc lower this
morning. In tome cases possibly the best
hogs, such as shippers could une, did not
show quite 10c decline, but there wcra
plenty of them that did sell fully that
much lower. The tradu, though alow at
the opening, was reasonably active when
once underway and the offerings were
picked up In very good scstnn. The bulk
of the hugs sold at ". 7'.' Va. 76, as afalnat
to mii &o yesterdsy. Today's dec-line wipes
out most of the advance made Mondsy and
Tuesday, leaving the market not far from
where It waa at the close of last week.

SHEET Receipts of sheep and lambs
were quite liberal this morning snd there
was a very fair sprinkling of sll kinds,
both shorn and wool-d. Conditions gov
erning the trsde could hardly have been
worse so far ss the seller's Interrsts were
concerned. The collapse of the mutton
market In the east, followed by the heavy
bresk In the Chicago market for sheep
and lambs, was as a mstter of fact at the
omiorn or tne trouble. This morning early
advices from Chicago not only reported
the market there as very slow and lower,
hut aa the next thing to dead. Buvers at
this point, accordingly atarted out not only
with Instructions to buy their supplies
lower, but with the evident Intention to
act very cautiously. Hence ' It was the
morning wore away with very llttlo busi
ness being transscted. and It wss well
along toward midday before a sufficient
number of sheep and lambs had changed
hands to really fix the msrket. Prices
generally were fully 1016c low.-r all

The defense In the gas opntrsct case :
started Ita Inning Wednesday rooming with .
a number .of denials of the evidence Intro- j
duced by the plaintiff. ' r .. I
O. W. Clabaugn. vie president and sec
retary of the gaa eompany, denied th testl-
mony of former Councilman ; Hoy that !
Clabaugh and told him, Hoye, that if he
would support tho ga contract ordinance -he,
Clabaugh, would use his Influence to
pull Tony Donahoe out of the contest for
sheriff against Hoye. Mr- Clabaugh Said
he had had no such conversation with 1
Hoye. ' ,1
Coimcllmen Huntington and Djrbgll both,
denied they had had th conversation testl- ,
fled to by Dav O'Brien. O'Brien said thy
had told him to so to see Clabaugh about
th o-dlnance. Superintendent Waring of
the gas company waa again on th stand.
He testified It required five, cubic feet of gaa
per hour to lllumlnat th entire mantel
In a Welsbach burner. Thla la th amount
called for in th con.tra.rt. Waring said th
burner waa adjusted to hum flva fset of
gaa per hour at th mlnlroum presaur
and when tha pressure mas high, .he said,
th lamp, would burn mor gaa than th
contract amount. Deputy City Attorney
Dunn on cross examination aought to show
the gas pressure -eould be - manipulated
from the gaa plant, but Mr, Waring said
thla could be done pnly by causing con
siderable trouble to other customers.
