'i'ha packer trade waa a flrat elaaa exhi
bition of a ragged affair, being. If anything,
atawer than yeaterday, and bavlng an un

Tha lamb market waa repetition x of
prevloua daya of tha week, being vary alow
and having a. generally eaaler tendency.
JJven with tha comparatively moderate re
ceipt, thera eeemed to be more lam be hero
than packera really wanted, and It waa not
until 'aeveral care had been picked up by
buyera of ahearlng atook that killera ahowad
much latereet tn the trade.
Uvea then It waa a dull affair, and while
aoma aalea were about ateady with yeater
day, other Were aa much aa a dime lower.
Real toppy klnda were lacking. , Tha beat
Meilcana here, which, were light, but .could
have been better finished, eold up to 14.16
14.10. tha latter figure being high for the
day. Moat of the dealrable weatern landed
around 12-4 and 114.06, and a few loada
of atrong weight moved on down to lxi.60
Bwea alao abowed another 19o alump, tha

C HICAGO GRAIN AND PROVISIONS.
Ijirga Offerings of Wheat are Absorbed aad
Market Harden Nllghfcly.
Chicago, March 4. Axaertlons that rait'
way traffic difficulties were being diminished
and that foreigner wera buying future de
liveries here gave an upward swing to the
wheat market today, Tha close, although
unsettled, wa c to 1q net higher, with
May at 91.63 to 91.81, and July at 11.6614
to 11.68. Corn finished half to o up and
oat gained c to 0- In provisions
the outcome ranged from 2V4o decline to a-
i rue or 7tac
; Reports that tha scarcity of railroad cars
had snown some amelioration and that
hope of a further betterment of domeatlc
shipping facilities were not without con
slderabla warrant, put the wheat bear at
a disadvantage almost from the outset. Be
sides, It was ald that export sale Yes
terday bad been on a liberal seal and that
despite rain In Texas, the greater part of
the southwest was still suffering from lack
of mol4ture. The Impetus to buying, how
ever, did not add la maximum force until
sign vwere noticed which seemed to In
dicate that European Interest had been
absorbing offers of the chief speculative
options. After that discovery prices con
tlnued to ascend and were checked only In
tne lust naif nour or tne session.
Vague peace rumors brought about' much
realizing by holder of wheat as the day
approacnea an end. The fact that little
had been heard of.any fresh export buying
at the seaboard tended also to shake In
some decree the confidence of the bull
and to cause a reaction in which a good
share of the, gain Uiat had been acored
Corn hardened with wheat Smallness of
receipts counted likewise In favor of higher
prices, but free veiling on the part of a
leading houao formed a decided offset. Oat
merely reflected the strength of other ce
reals. Mont of the trading waa local.
New, high record value were reached In
the' provision market, bat failed t last.
The rise accompanied temporary upturn
In the price of hogs.
