Features of the Trading; and Closing
Prices on Board of Travde.
CHICAGO, May 6. Owners of the big
concentrated holdings of May wheat hare
liad to slash prices for that delivery 4
cents a bushel today to head off shipments
which were being headed toward Chicago
from all directions. New crop months suf
fered also, but only to a limited extent,
closing easy Sf-sc to Ho under last night.
Latest figures on corn wars a down
and for oats, HVo to V4c. In hog products
there was a net gain of 6gju2Hc.
Urgent attempts on the part of com
mission houses to sell May wheat at the
opening disclosed the fact that offerings
from outside over night had reached a
staggering total. Thereupon all support
was withdrawn In a hurry. Bull leaders
ftractlcally threw up their hands and at
east for the time being let the market go
to pleoes. First sales of May were the
highest of the seBBlon, SefctjVTo, a decline of
ljia from the night before. Then there
was plunge to Wo In a minute and as
brokers vainly tried to execute stop' lose
orders, a violent smash followed, bottom
not appearing until V3Vfco was reached
exactly 4 cents Joss In all. Moderate buy

the low points. July ranged from 8&v4.o to
89o, and closed He down at SHHSSHo.

One of the i.rln. lr.ol fnlnr. in n..nrfhin,,.
mat hate clvrn a decided otnimtstie Ion
to buninena during the Inst week has been
the ac;lvttv on the stock exchange which
has entirely overcome the stagnation which
prevailed during March Bnd April
Comparer! with the dullness which pre
ceded It. the animation of the mnrket has
been the token for speculation beyond what
had been predicted hv mnrkr-t weeis. vet
prices have little altered on the whole and
th transactors fron day to day have brn
much of k profem.ora! character.
In one detail the statistical record of the
country, as published tnls week, contained
an item that was novel and of no little
significance. This was the compilation of
commercial futures, showing the laxirest
aggregate of small defaults for nnv April
for many yeari. Including April. 1!T8, when
they reached their maximum after a Ions
80 fur as foreign trr.de! goes the weeklv
port figures Indicate a matter recession,
which will perhaps be notable In the ex
port movement. '
The high prices of farm products hnve
brought a prlod of prosperity In sight for
the railroads as may be noted hv the
placing of orders for rail and equipment.
His; Orders of teel.
The Carnegie fiteel com Dan y reports rail
orders for oOO.OV) tons for the Western
Pennsylvania railways company.
The Florida Kast Coast order for 14.000
tons will be filled by the . Pennsylvania
An order by the Feabord Air IJne for
l.VmiO tons Is divided between the Tennese
Coal, Iron and Realty company and Penn
sylvania Steel company.
The Seaboard A'r Line has ordered ton
specific type locomotives from the Ameri
can ixiconiotlve company and ten consoli
dated and five heavy switching ensrtnes
from the Baldwin locomotive Works.
The United States Steel corporation has
banked no additional blast furnaces lately,
and is operating about ti3 per cent of
Finished production Is on a basis of
something like ti6 per cent of capacity.
This would seem to Indicate shipments of
28,ft) tons a day. which Is at the rate of
abtiot S0.u00.000 tons a year.
In 19 ;he steel corporation produced
8.3iO,OiiO tons of steel. Operations todav
arc only slightly In excess of what they
were trn years ago.
Notwithstanding the fact that money
was apparently the dominating Influence
in promoting whatever Improvement took
place In the stock market during the
week, there Is a growing sentiment In some
quarters that Wall street Is starting In to
discount trade betterment In the not dis
tant future. The argument used In favor
of thla Is that In many years past Im
provement has come when business was
at a low ebb. That this Is the condition
at present la shown by the week's de
velopments. Bank clearings were a good
barometer of the country's trade and show
a decrease for April of nearly 12 per cent.
Every state reported a loss with the ex
ception of the South Atlantio section,
which gained 10 per cent.
As to Crop Outlook.
Optimism overreaches Itself In descant
ing upon the glowing proepect In May. It
Is permissible to (Uncus agricultural con
ditions in the spring, but there Is no crop
prospect, properly speaking, before Au
gust. Conditions to date have been gen
erally propitious and unusually so, and
the probabilities are that the agricultural
outturn of the year will be satisfactory in
An active week on the-stock exchange
closed with a dull session today, although
prices realized were those of a strong mar
Expectations of a favorable crop report
on Monday cauaed a final recovery today
from the early declines in the market and
the final quotations were not widely di
vergent from those of last night. These
same expectations caused a sharp break
In May wheat on the produce exchange
and all deliveries closed lower, with the
final trading extremely dull. The bank
statement, too. was unfavorable. The sur
plus was slightly Increased, but. Instead
of the predicted gain in cash the actual
week-end figures showed a loss of 83.000,
000. Loans were decreased 31ll.2OO.O0O a
rather singular result In a week of ex
pandlng financial markets.
There were, of course, the foreign credits
to draw upon,' but the foreign exchange
market of the week has not reflected large
requisitions of the sort.

whleh Is due to losses at numerous latpertaBt eenters, as goad galas are etttl retaraed at
Biany nilaor points. As usual, howsTer, the most prenoaneed lass is saade by New York Cltr,
where operatioat la the speanlatiTe aad flsaseM saarkata hare been on an cananally
reduoed soale. In fact, on the Stock Exchange sales of stoektf or the past month have been
less than last rear by nearly 9,000,000 shares, which, with the lower qaotattont
that ruled,, probably aeeounta tor vary material proportion of the lost at that eeater.
In the New England States, Boston makes a much better eosnpartsoa than tor some
months past, but there U rcill some loss In the total for that section owing to a ihitmsss at
that and other Important points which are not offset by gains at LoweO, Portland and
New Haven. The returns from cities In the Middle Atlantic States Indicate a further
falling off as compared with the previous moath, aad the majority ef see tan still report

proaounoed Increases at aeaerous points reflecting favorable eeedltioat la most parts of
that seotloa over last year, besides marked improvement eompared with 1909. Among
the leading eltlea reporting gains are Baltimore, Augusta, Norfolk, Maeon, Wilmington,
N. C, Ootambus, Oa, garaaaah, Atlanta aad Jacksonville. The Central Scatea report
some loss eompared with last year owing to decreases at Chisago aad some ether

at daolanatl, aarvelaad, Peoria, Milwaukee, Can ton and a number of other eeater Indicat

Irregularity sppears, although some etnas report galas, but those are not snffieiently pro

leas lost eompared with last year by the majority of the cities thieaghout the West Is '
apparently a reflection of unsettled eondltioas In that portion of the eouatry, but there Is

CA i 1 L.B Today s market was, as usual
on a Saturday, barren of fresh receipts of
sny Importance, but the totsl for the week
has been very liberal, 'showing a large
gain over last week, although being quite
nine unaer tne record tor the corre
sponding week last year.
During the early part of the week the
market on beef steers at all points was
more or less of a drag, large receipts at
the different market centers In the face
01 a not overly urgent consuming demand
for the product made the trade in live
cattle rather dull, with the tendency of
prices tower, xnis tendency waa the most
pronounced on heavy cattle, letter on In
ths week, as the receipts fell off and as
the feeling that the coming wk might
show still smaller receipts became pro
nounced In the minds of buyers, the trade
seemed to take on more life and prfets
strengthened up. At the close of the week
handy light cattle and good grades of
heavy cattle are around 10c higher, with
other kinds steady. While there are un
doubtedly a good many cattle still In the
country snd while It Is expected that re
ceipts will be heavy on some days at lestt
for some time to come, still the prophets
are beginning to talk that receipts In the
future will be less burdensome and that
prices ought to show Improvement.
The market on cows and heifers has not
5.J.own very much change during the week.
The demand on most days has been very
fair and the trade raaannahlv aniva rinnA
light heifers have been In best demand and
they are possibly a little atronger than
one week ago. The general run of butcher
stock, however, could only be quoted as
about steady. Veal calves and bulls are
" trifle stronger thsn last week.
Receipts of stockers and feeders have
been very light throughout the week, but
the demand has also been very moderate
and values have eased off a little, so that
fL?Te .cloM of th8 week thV ro around
lower than last week.

HOQS-A good, active market, at nickel
higher prices Is the thortest way of de
scribing today s hog trade. The activity to
demand, as well ss the advance, was
largely due to a limited supply. About 85
cars arrived and as most buyers filled
orders without delay, the session wss a
short-lived affair. Complete clearance was
made by 10 o'clock.
Spreads narrowed somewhat, a develop
ment that is frequent on a strong market,
and the major portion of the crop held
within a 16c range. Naturally, it follows
that there were sales here and there that
failed to show the fat nickel advance.
'" luaiua aciiing strong to 60 higher.
Shippers and speculators provided sn out
let for about 10 per cent of total offerings.
Ixing strings ranged from 86.60 to 86.70,
good butchera moving around 86.66. Bacon
animals sold as high as 86.76, a figure iden
tified with yesterday's top, but lBo lets
tban tops a week ago.
While receipts for the week show a
natural Iocs from last week's burdensome
runs, the total Is seasonably large. Ship
pers have been buying freely on most
days and packing demand has been broad
and generally active. Bulk of today's busi
ness averages from a nickel to 16o lower
than last Saturday's market, heavy hogs
showing lesser declines. ,

BHfc.fc.p-All branches of the sheep and
lamb markets were barren thla morning
and the acale of values remained un
changed. No fresh recetpta were avail
able and yesterday's clearance was prac
Since and Including Monday dally sup
plies have been well up to the average
both In quantity and quality. About 29.000
head arrived In all. the bulk consisting of
lambs with shorn offerings more plentiful
than woolsklns. Mexicans are still running
freely, of courte. and are showing up
mostly in the fleece. Old sheep proved the
exception to the rule at all times and
amount of business transacted does not
afford a very reliable Idea of price levels.
Tone to demand lately was favorably
contrasted with dull, slumpy Inquiry last
week. All regular buyers took s greater
Interest In the trade and made their pur
chases In free-buying fashion, prices im
proved more or leas ss the result of
healthier feeltng. but advances were lira
