CHICAGO. April 'Si. Wheat prices on the
Board of Trade, broke 'today from 14c to
4,o per bushel from -the filgh point of the
day and 'the market closed extremely weak
and pnly a trifle above the low mark.
Corn closed about steady;' oats were easy
and provisions weak.,'
Almost complete demoralisation prevailed
til the wheat pit for a brief period late In
the session and only tha most determined
support by bull leaders saved the market
from utter rout. Immense quantities ot
wheat were dumped. 'Into the pit during
the day and the strength of the bulls wss
taxed to the utmost to prevent the occur

the session. As It was the price' declined

the bulls and the. "weather, man,'.' with
July a
tentlon. Leading bulls ttave contended that
wheat for
on account of drought last fall It would be
impossible to deliver on July contracts any
great amount of wheat from this season's
crop, but reports received today from thel
souttiweiA seemed to disprove this asserv
tlon. With the advent of "growing"
weather the new crop waa said to be mak-;
Ing rapid headway. One dispatch claimed
that the outlook In central Missouri had
greatly Improved during the last few days
nd that "fields pronounced dead early In
the season now show prospects for an av
erage yield." Tho situation In the north
west waa equally optimistic. Sending In
Minnesota and tho Dakota Is In full blast
snd wlth-ntln,ua4-. favotable weatber'lt
was predicted that by the end of the week
the work-would be completed and that the
acreage would be the. largest ever known.
In addition to thoao domestic conditions
the foreign situation waa against the bulls.
Cables were decidedly week. Liverpool
being off Id to Had, and tho weekly crop
summary claimed that the outlook for the
wheat orop of Etiropo In general waa ex
cellent. Following so close the exceed
ingly liberal shipments from Russia last
week, f as reported yesterday, this news
proved too much for the market to with
stand. The market ppened weak t prices
off to lfjlVio. compared with yester
day's close, the July delivery showing the
greatest loss. Initial quotatlona on this
option were tl.lM to II. 15V Before the
end of tho first hslf hour the price had
declined another cent on general selling.
The market then ' rallied considerably on
covering by short and for & time held
comparatively ..steady. In the final hour,
however, the market again slipped from
the control of the bulls and prices tumbled
from 2ltn to 4So from the high potnt of
the day and from ia to Co compared
with yesterday's high mark. The bottom
for Julv was reached at II.IZ. May sold
oft to ll.SiVa and September to 1 04. The
close waa weak, witn July at i.izi. May
2lor4 at U.24& and September at J1.0&3
-The corn market held uo remarkably well
considering the- oevere slump In wheat. At
the cloao price were c lower 10
higher, compared with yesterday's flnjJ
quotations.' May sold between TOo and
nun and closed at 70c.
Oata were firm at the start, hut eased
att later. Tho Iowa crop bulletin, which
showed that seeding had been delayed by
wet weather, was a bullish faotor sarly in
the day. At the close prices were Vio to
Ho lower to c higher than tho previous
Provisions displayed moderate firmness
early In .the dsy, but weakened later. At
the close prices were a shade higher to 15o

strength of Readinr was the outgrowth
psrtly of the persistent rle In price of
Central Railroad of New Jersey, of whluli

roaa or isew jersey, no news wss forth
coming. The advance In Delaware. Lack
awanna st weatern and the seeming em
barrassment of Its directors to find it plan
ror suitaDie distribution or the company a
surplus, ha a stimulating effect on all
the coalers. One report that srlses In
conneotion with this movement 1s that tho
plan for meeting the possible confirma
tion of the commodities clsuse of the
Hepburn law will nrovlde for some distil.
ouuon or assets among stocKholders in
the anthracite companies.
The avmosthetlc nature of the strength
of this group and of a miscellaneous
collection of specialties was not convinc
ing ana tn general list did not. at anv
time, respond. While the demand In the
Reneral list failed to respond, there wss
esltatlon about selling. The const iuence
was a considerable reduction In the vol
ume of the market's activity outside the
coalers and a narrow price movement.
The selling became more conspicuous late
in tne asy. The hlililv speculative na
ture of the ordinary Reading movement
and the doubtful character of some of
the aoeclaltlea broutrht forward Into
prominence caused their Influence to
wane. Part of the repression on the mar
ket was due to an apprehension that a
crlsl might be aonroachlna In the wheat
speculation. Growing disapproval of the
speculative movement in wheat is nenrci
in the financial district, but a sudden
collapse in wheat would not be without
power of disturbance In other markets.
Chicago reported some Improvement In
the demand for money for mercantile
uses, snd this was accented as a prom

buyers took advantsge of the decreased
demand and started out bidding decidedly
lower, In many cases as much ss htflOe
lower than the asms kind ot hogs sold for
yesterday. It Is hardly necessary to add
that the market on light hogs was very
slow, salesmen being backward about tak

wss effected on thst kind.
When th light hogs finally sold It was on
the basis of prices that were weak to 6c

light loads were hard to move, bids on
that kind being IfriO lower and at the

this morning, but still a very heavy falling
off as compared with Tuesday of last week.
Ths receipts for the week to dat are de
cidedly short of the record of last week,
but are still about up to the average.
As was the case yesterday, the supply
of stockers and feeders was comparatively
light and as there was a good demand the
market opened first on that kind of cattl.
Prlue paid were steady to a little stronger
on Kim if tha best kinds. One bunch of
Wyoming hay-feds reached $6.76. the. high
est pries paid so far this year. tor western
feeder. Everything in sight waa soon dis
posed of, the trade as a whole being very
satisfactory to the selling interests.
Cows and heifers were In fair demand
and they sold In good season, though the
ma.-ket wss at no tlm very active. The
best heifers sold up to 16.60, with spayed
Wyoming hay-fed heifers at 16.20 and 16.30.
Beef steers wr slow sellers all day long.
Buyers picked out here and there a few
loads that Just happened to suit st prices
that were close to steady, but, on the other
hand, they were bidding a muen aa 103l&c
lower on other cattle, and a good many
had to sell that way.
