Feat area of the Trading; and Closing
Prices on Hoard of Trade.
CHICAGO, May 1. Wintry weather In
the west and northwest was ths chief rea
son for a further advance In wheat prices
today. The market closed at net gains of
He to lV82o, compared with yesterday's
final quotations. Corn, oats and provisions
also closed firm.
Wheat exhibited greatest strength early
in the session, the market losing much of
Its buoyancy during the Isst half of ths
day, owing to profit taking, based to some
extent on official predictions of alowly
rising temperatures in ths spring wheat
country. At the start prices were HSi'HiC
higher than the previous close, the May de
livery showing the greatest strength de
spite deliveries of t,luo,000 bushels of cash
grain. Opening quotations on Msy were
at tl.24H4tl.24V and on July. il.llm.2.
During the first half hour May advanced
to $1.264 and July to $1.13. Reports from
the northwest Indicated heavy snowfall
over a large section, wtlh a bllzsard raging
in the Dakotas, but the weather bureau
fcreoast was for mora spring-like weather
tomorrow. The official forecast brought
out sufficient selling late in the session
to cause an easier feeling. The desire at
many traders to even up operations over
Sunday also exerted a depressing effect.
July-at the low point sold at fl-UV- The
market, however, reacted from the bot
tom and closed firm, with May at tl.iSV
and July at 11.13.
Unfavorable weather for farm work
caused a sharp advance in corn prices. At
tile close prices wre Ho to Ho higher-than
yesterday s final quotations, May being at
71 He and July at 680.
Oats were decidedly strong earlier in the
day, but reacted somewhat later. Prices at
the Close were VtfHo to toe higher,
with May at 5iifi0Vo and July at 4Ho.
Provisions were firm. At the close prices
were unchanged to fU7Vio higher.

from the usual participation in the mamet

law of events. Some anxiety was felt over
tn course of May day events in Pans, but
the firmness on the bourse nad a reassur

money rate left some apprehension that
next week money mantel might show
some residue of the effects of May first
settlements and the continued large bond
operations. The check to renewal of busi

The publication of statistics of Immigra

that Incoming steerage passengers for the
first three months of the yosr have In
creased again to near the record figures
of 1907. The Improved Industrial outlook
Is given credit for this development. Fea
tures of strength In the day's market were

CATTLE Receipts of cattle as usual on
a Saturday were extremely light, and there
was no market In consequence. For the
week receipts have been large, showing a
very considerable gain over last week,
though there was a falling off as compared
with the excessive run of two weeks ago.
Compared with a year ago there has been
a very liberal gain. The quality, of the
cattle coming has been pretty fair on an
average, there being among the receipts a
good many pretty well finished cornfed
The week 'started out with beef cattle
generally quoted a little lower, but the
market steadied up on Tuesday and grad
ually strengthened up each day during the
remainder jot thu week. At the close beef
steers are generally 25c highor than one
week ago and the market as a whole In
a good healthy condition. The best cattle
jved during the week sold up aa high
At the beginning of the week the market
on cows and heifers also showed some In
clination toward a lower range of prices,
but the change was slight. During the
greater part of the week prices tended up
ward quite rapidly, being at the close t5
&3oc . higher than a week ago The im
provement has been more noticeable on tho
better grades, while common and Inferior
Kinds of the canner order have changed
but very little. Veal calves have been
pretty good sellers throughout the week
and have shown a little firmness, being
generally 26o higher than last week's low
point. Bulls and stags have held up welt,
showing in fact some improvement for the
The very light supply of stockers and
reeders still continues and prices are ac
cordingly as high as they were last week.
It is generally recognised that the market
U way too high as compared to tho way
fat cattlo are selling, but the light receipts
have prevented buyers from forcing any
material reduction. There is no question
but what the market would break sharply
If receipts wsre at all liberal.

feature of the
hog trade todav the asmx na vniuroU
Naturally enougn. with such a variation
in prices on the samo kind of hogs for two
days in succession, sellers were differing
somewhat In their views. Those salesmen
who did not have overly good luck yester
day and were fortunate today, quoted their
sales at about steady, while others who
were high men yeterdsy, thought they took
off a nickel today. Perhaps to quote the
market anywhere from steady to 6c lower
would Just about cover the situation. The
trade was reasonably active at current
prices, and the big bulk of the hogs
changed hands In very fair season. A
considerable proportion of all the hogs here
sold at tti.8O'97.10. and on up aa high as
t7.t0 for good heavy hogs. There were a
number of Kales at the latter price, but It
will be remembered that yesterday there
was one load at $7.23.
Receipts of hogs for the week foot up
61,3i0 head, a gain of almost 7,000 head aa
compared with last week and over 16,1X0
head as compared with a year ago. In
other words, receipts of hogs this week
hsve been the heaviest of any week since
the third week In March. Considering the
heavy run, the market has by no means
been In bad sha;w. On Monday, however,
there was a severe break, hogs on that day
telling on an average of 13c lower than
on the previous Saturday. During the next
two days prices firmed up very materially,
the market on Wednesday reaching the
high point of the year. Since Wednesday
the tendsncy has been again downward,
and after allowing for the decline today,
the market Is about 10c lower than the
close 01 last wee.
