Heavy Uxportn tame u Itenction Ot b
er (irnina Are Loner at the Close
Advance In I'rovlnlons.
CHICAGO, March 20. Gran markets fol
lowed a nervous and erratic course to-day.
Speculators wero atlvc-rse to the considera
tion of anything but weather reports and
these being abundantly bearish prices slid
downward until wheat seemed to have ar
rived at an export ba?is. Litrge pales on
the decline revived tho dormant bull senti
ment and helped other pits sympathetic
ally. At the close May wheat was a shade
higher, corn He lower and May oats He
lower. Provisions closed 5c to 10c higher.
There was a general landslide in grains
before noon, led by wheat. Rains in the
West and Southwest smashed prices, corn
vaa weaker oa the warmer weather and
Southwestern selling, and oats felt pan
icky for a time. Wheat opened easy on
cables and the weather, but received fair
support lor a time. A fair number of buy
ing orders were executed, but soon came
the slump In the Southwest. Kansas City
and St. Louis were earnestly bearish and
prices in those markets were rapidly slip
ping off. .At one time St. Louis was 2&c
under yesterday's May closing price. The
local crowd here, who had been taking in
some stuff, turned about to sell. Longs
liquidated, stop-loss orders were met, caus
ing still further weakness, and before May
had stopped on its downward course al
most lc was lost. Speculators overlooked
bull news; Liverpool continued steady at
a small decline, seaboard clearances were
large and receipts were small. Statis
ticians reported the crop in a less favor
able position. There was a better conti
nental demand reported early, and millers
were reported large buyers of May. Not
withstanding these conditions the weather
seemed all powerful. May, which opened
!c to i,c lower at 71c to 73iC, sold off to
7JUc Then came some covering and the
break was stopped. The big influence, how
ever, came late In the shape of reports
that wheat was on an export basis. New
York reported 50 loads taken for export
and local cash traders worked the same
number. The earlier bullish factors then
became more apparent to the trader, and
May wheat shot up to a steady close, a
vhade higher at 7iutCiMc. Local receipts
were 27 cars, none of contract grade; Min
neapolis and Duluth received CJJ, or 366 for
the three points, against 422 last week and
4y a year ago. Primary receipts were
C37.0O0 bu. compared with 637.00) last year.
Seaboard clearances in wheat and flour
equaled 701.0UO bu.
Corn, like wheat, had a firm support the
first hour, and then a sharp break. This
market was influenced largely by the bear
ish feeling in the Southwest. St. Louis was
selling here. There was a large trade, much
of which was liquidation. The sentiment
generally seemed bearish on the good
weather In the Southwest, which is ex
pected to hasten, pasturing and increase the
interior movement. Cables were lower, and
after the eay opening the wheat break
tumbled prices downward. Stop loss orders
brought further declines, as did news that
conditions favored seeding. When wheat
reacted corn followed. There was a fair
cash business and omc stuft was worked
hero for export. The recovery, however,
was not so g-ood as In wheat, and May,
'after selling down to GofcMc. closed easy,
ic down, at 6CifU61c Receipts were 72
Speculation In May oats was extremely
nervous. At one time they were hammered
aggressively and prices were Hc down. At
this time large quantities were unloaded.
Again tho market was comparatively strong
and there was nothing for sale. The weak-
riesH In corn and wlieat affected the market
accordingly, and the later revival of
strength helped In a recovery. Added to
theü factors, however, was the important
rumor that the leading bull In May had un
loaded bis holdings. Traders did not know
which way to act. July and September
options suffered with other grains, but
closed fairly well. May, which opened un
changed to i.c down, at 43-c to 430.
dropped to 42i. reaeted and closed easy, gc
lower, at 4S,c. Recilpts were 79 cars.
In spite of a large run of hogs at tho
yards, a lower hog market and the de
preiselon in grains, provisions held up
strongly. Packers and commission houses
were buying" all products. Ribs were par
ticularly a purchase, and the strength in
that product helped pork and lard. At no
time did any of the list show a tendency to
decline. May pork closed 3c higher at
$15.52, lard 5c up at $0.45, nd ribs 5o
higher at $S.50.
Estimated receipts for to-morrow: Wheat,
25 cars; corn, 105 cars; oats, 110 cars; hogs,
33.0 n) head.

Sharp Decline In Wheat Catche Heav

NEW YORK, March 2ö.-Under violent
liquidation wheat prices broke to 79'SiC for
May to-day, catching the heaviest export
trade In months. Upward of 1C9 loads, or
1,112.000 bu, were taken by exporters, in
cluding 4:) loads at New York, 43 loads at
outports and 47 loads at Chicago for direct
shipment. An encouraging feature of the
business was the engagement in New York
of tJ loads ocean freight room, nearly all
of it being for the continent.

but Jobbers have quita moderately of both staple

with the exertion of ticks, coarse colored cot

NEW YORK, March 20. The so-called
specialties still occupied the largest share
of attention in the stock market to-day.
Their movements were not quite so wide,
nor so feverishly erratic as yesterday, but
there was still an eccentric irregularity in
this portion of the market. As for the
standard stocks that usualy make up the
bulk of the trading by reason of their large
capitalization and representative character,
they were neglected and sluggish, as for
some time past. There was some heaviness
among the anthracite carriers, caused by
the rather threatening attitude assumed, by
the miners' conference at Shamokin, but
the declines in that group were limited to
fractions and good recoveries were made.
There was good support in St. Paul, with
out any explanation for the buying, which
gave rise to the supposition that the sup
port was part of the plan to facilitate the
operations of speculative pools elsewhere
in the market. Colorado Fuel was again
a conspicuous figure and touched yester
day's high level again at 107, closing with a
net gain of 48 after a very erratic course
during the day. Thia movement seemed to
have a sympathetic effect on Tennessee
Coal and Hocking Coal, but the United
States Steel stocks continued neglected and
heavy, as they have been ever since the
proposed bond Issue was announced. Sugar
was sold early on professed disapointment
over the terms of the bill for reducing the
Cuban sugar tariff, but later it rose strong
ly and closed with a net gain of a point.
Amalgamated Copper continued quite ac
tive and was bought by the shorts to cover,
yielding a net gain of about a point. Among
the minor stocks there were some new can
didates for favor, while attempts to market
other stocks recently bought at high prices
made broad inroads on those prices on very
small scales. There was a conspicuous de
mand for Chicago Union Traction and In
ternational Power and the newly-listed
Corn Products stocks were advanced more
than a point over their first sale pric The
local tractions advanced in response to the
announcement of the favorable action of
stockholders in the Brooklyn Transit Com
pany and the Metropolitan Street-railway
Company on the proposed capital readjust
ments. The rise of S'i in Long Island
seemed to be in sympathy with this group.
The market closed quite active but irregu
lar. Growing consideration is given to the
question of money supplies between now
and the time of the April quarterly settle
ments. The gain by the banks on subtreas
ury operations as a result of the closing of
the government's offer for redemption of
bonds shows a tendency to dwindle from
the renewed effect of the surplus revenue
returns, notwithstanding large daily dis
bursements on account of pensions, now
running at the maximum for the month.
The question arises as to the effect on the
money market when the pension payments
fall off again and the sub-treasury renews
its collection of a considerable daily sur
plus balance in its operations with the New
York money market. The continued firm
ness of the London money market and the
large government loan operations looming
in the near future there and on the conti
nent are also subjects of consideration.
The active speculative issues In the bond
market were inclined to be heavy, but Ihe
general list was irergular. Total sales, at
par value, were $2.450.000. United States
bonds were all unchanged on the last call.
The Stock and Produce exchanges will be
closed on Oood Friday March 2S) and the
Stock Exchange on the day following.

March 20. Cattle Receipts, MX); shipments,
200. The receipts of cattle to-day were about
1U) larger than a . week ago and a little
larger than a year ago. As usual for sev
eral days past there was a good variety of
grades represented, and tho quality, if any
aifferent, was a. shade better than
yesterday. On account of the supply
being nearer equal to the demand there was
an inclination among buyers to press the
market to-day, but salesmen were holding
their strictly fat cattle at fully steady
prices and were iinally successful in disposing-
of that class on nueh a basis. In
fact, a few dealers claimed that they real
ized strong prices for their best consign
ments. The demand for common to medium
cattle was not as good as it has been for
several days, and it was more or less dif-
iicult to effect sales at barely steady prices.
Evidently the undercurrent is not as strong
as it has been for probably a week, but
there stem to be very few dealers that ex
pect lower prices for the really desirable
cattle. Steers sold as high as JG.60, and the
top price for heifers $5.73 and cows $3.

Hogs Receipts, 3,000; shipments, 1.500.
The receipts of hogs to-day show a little
improvement over a week ago and are not
quite as large as a year ago. All buyers
were in the market at the opening, and
under the influence of a good shipping
demand the bidding was fairly active, it
is possible that buyers were wanting lower
prices at the start, but good competition
between packers and shippers developed
rather early and sales were generally con
sidered steady compared with yesterday.
The extreme price reported to-day, how
ever, was 5c below yesterday, and there
were possibly occasional sales of other
grades that did not show as much strength.
On account of a few shipping orders that
arrived late the closing market was active,
and fully steady prices compared with the
opening were realized. It is evident that
the market here is relatively higher than
elsewhere, and therefore It will not be sur
prising to see some reaction In values when
the receipts are fully equal to the demand.
Sales to-day ranged from $3.900.55, and a
small proportion of the supply was re
ported below $'3.20. Quotations:

compared with the iame time last week and

a year ago. The receipts to-day were about
4(U larger than a week ago and 5oo larger
than a year ago. The arrivals included 50
head that were contracted. They averaged
IS lbs and sold at $5.25. The supply on sale
waw too small to Interest buyers to any ex
tent, and, therefore, there was not much
animation in the bidding, but sales were
usually at steady prices compared with yes
terday. Spring lambs sold at $S. others at
