The wheat market made a brief show of
firmness at the atari, owing to a sharp
bulge tn the prico of May com. but heavy
sales by prominent longs soon caused a
decllra In all deliveries. Tbo selling was

vailing over the entire country and Canada,
and talk ot a shutting doom of a large
number of flour mills In the northwest, due
to an accumulation at stocks oc flour. A
number of prominent caah Interests were

NEW TORK. May Ill-While the atrergth
In today s market for stocks waa mani
fested, there was no mistaking its d
eidej character and the upeculat on showed
an animation and considerable variety, the
principal operation being attributed to the
laraer financial powers and the powerful
element waa timid about venturing to sell
th market.
The purposo to fostr the demand for new
capital Issues waa believed to prompt the
measures for supporting the msrket. snd
as th Harrlman Fsrtflcs are credited with
larast Interest at present, in this purpose,
owing the Imminence of new Isnues, the sus
taining operations were commonly believed
to emanate from sources In sllince wl'h
those cnmpanlee. The meeting of the di
rectors of ths t'nton Pacific and the
pVuthTn Pacific resulted in the declara
tion of the regular dividend on both sioks
and that action helped the stocks, but
they were more, affected by rumors rega-d-lng
the coming financing, on which no an
nouncement was made. The volatile rl
in Southern Pacific preferred. Indicated
the credence that was given to a report
that It was In contemplation to waive ih
company's privilege to releom the 7 per
cent preferred stock at 115. The fTlsen-
of this privilege has had the effect of
holding the price of the stock close to tht
leveL The motive for this supposed In
tention is said to be the desire to msrket
the balance cf authorised preferred stx-k
In the treasury of the corntanv. The ru
mor of an Intended extra distribution on
Northern Pacific stock wss revived. Both
the Hill stocks and St. Paul are benefitted
by the large sales of new stock effected be
fore the financial depression set In. Suppo
sitions as to the benefit to the companies
of these funds In hand available for ex
penditure during the period of depression,
and low prices of materials, plav a part la
the strength of the stocks. Stocks of com
panies which have Just efected financial
plsns responded to this news, efpeclallv
some of the railroads of doubtf-il credit,
supposed to be confronted with difficulties
In this regard. The fact that note, instead
of bond issues were resorted to In these
Instances suggested a gradation In the
prospects of coming securities Issued in
proportion to the security offered, cr the
financial strength of the' companies. The
Prevailing temner of the sneenlmw-.n
clear from the aridity with which hln'a
of favorable events were seised uron to
rasn up prices, while events seeming to
bear unfavorably on the outlook for values
were ignored.
The engagements of gold for export,
while large, were entirely exrwrted on ac
count of the abundance ot monev here,
the decline In the foreign trade balance In
our favor, and aome remarketing here of
i"TTiHn noimnrs or American securities.
The foreign allotmente of the Pennsylvania
bonde are reported as being resold In this
market in spite of their denomination In
pounds sterling, instead of dollars Dis
counts receded today in London and Ber-
im. ana a reduction In the Bank r.f
England official rate tomorrow to ;u ner
cent, was under discussion.
Bonds were steady; total sales, jar vain-'
34 47H.000. Cnlted States bonds Wtre un

CATTLE Receipts of cattle were quite
liberal for the middle of the week at this
point, with very fsir showing at ctner
markets as well. The bulk of the receipts
consisted of corn-fed steers, there being
among the offerings a good many very
desirable killers.
The weakness in the market for beef
steers which developed yesterday was con
tinued today, the market being both slow
and lower. Buyers were Inclined to bold
back and wail developments, while sales
men were not disposed to lake off anything
In the price without a struggle. Thus the
forenoon was well advanced before very
much trading was done. As to prices the
market was safely lOQasc lower than
Cows and heifers were In very fair de
mand and. as the suppiy was by no means
burdensome, the market was quite active
everything changing bands In very good
season. Choice yearling heifers are very
much sought after and are selling at very
high prices.
The supply of feeders waa small and the
market without any noticeable change.
Light stock cattle, on the other hand, were
very dull, holders of such finding it no
easy matter to move them.

SHEEP Receipts were light this morn
ing, but they were plenty heavy enough
considering the demand, which waa far
from urgent. Buyers picked out such stuff
as pleased them, buying the good handy
weight lambs at fully steady prices. Thus
lambs that sold at 166 oh Monday brought
the same price today. Most of the receipts
consisted of heavy lambs, for which the
demand was very light, especially so st
prevailing prtcea Advices from Chicago
as well aa from southern markets all Indi
cated that prices at this point sre higher
In proportion then other marketa. Hence
It waa not surprising- that buyera thla
morning were backward about taking hold
freely. At the same time packers have
shipped in direct cheaper southern lambs
which had reduced to some extent the local
demand. Taking all In all It was not sur
prising that the trade waa dull tnroughout,
but It waa no duller than Is to be expected
considering that local prices are right close
up to Chicago.

Damage to the amount of several thou
sand dollars was done by the storm of
Tuesday evening In Omaha, public work
such as atrevt improvement, paving and
sewer construction suffering the most.
Mud wss washed onto the pavement In
low places in great quantities, families liv
ing in the hollows suffered considerably
from the overflowing of eewers and on
sewer burst, causing much damage In the
Immediate vicinity.
On Twentieth street from Poppleton ave
nue to the railroad bridge the mud Is esti
mated to be on the average of two feet
thick over the entire pavement for a d La
tat ce of about three bloc-ke. On Thirteenth
street for the distance ff about four blocks
south from Jones the mud covers the pave
ment about one foot thick and this la the
condition for the distance of a couple of
blocks south from Leavenworth on Four

"I estimate that the cost of removing the
mud from the pavements will be close to. (j
If not quite, 35.000," ssyt Thomas J. Flyne. 4
street commissioner. "The storm was on J
of the worst I ever aaw and I doubt if f
such quantities of mud were ever before
washed onto the pavements In this ciiy. f,

The Ixard street sewer, near Twelfth,

and the water flooded the entire bottoms.
The sewer burst out for the distance ot
about fity feet and ia tn sucn a condition

not think It will pay to repair lt The
aewer la too small for the district, and h
says that a large aewer, plans for which
were recently rejected by the council over
the mayor's suggestion, is the only way to
remedy the difficulty.
