the sales amounting to 135,100

Exjret,n ila review of the British
grain trade during the pait week,
says: Spring work is at a stand still
on account of frosty The position Is
very rerious. The wheat trade is dull.
Fine English red is 61 dearer. Tbe
sales of English wheat during the
week were 04,421 quaitrra at 20s 9d,
against 51,710 quarters at 31a 41 dur
ing tbe corresponding week last year.
Tliore have been continued deliveries
of Ibur. Prices are not materially
altered. The foreign wheat trade is
gradually haidening. The supplies
are unusually short, yet Knglish wheat
ccn'inues to nndanell foreign equiva
lents at 53 to 10 1 per quarter.. Some
sorts of Imported wheats are ridicu
lously dear comrared with native
wheats. The diilerence is partly at
tributed to tho alteration in 1st) years
in the London milling machinery.
Four ca'goes of wheat arrived. Two
cargoes were sold. Three cargoes were
withdrawn, and one (Cilitomian) re
mained. Trade forward is more active,
and prices are against buyers. The
market to-day was slow for English
wheat, asd 6dls more was de
mat (I'd. Flour was 6d dearer. Oats
were 6d dearer.

dawnwa'd sUct in wheat, bat after

fluence. Lsater, Eldredge & Evering.
ham tried to stop the break, but inef
fectually. Wall Etreet was a big seller
until about noon. A change in the
"visible" situation also helped the
weakness. Toe decrease was reduced
to as low as 300.000 bushels. Many
put it at 350,000 bushels. .From bot

Chicago, III., March 15. The pro
vision market all day was particularly
active, acd dragged everjthirg else
down with it. The opening was
steady, bot it remained o only a mo
ment, and thereafter ruled decidedly
weak. The drop aggregated 30a per
barrel. There wa a rumor at one
time during the morning session that
the Howe combination was bus'ed
and unloading its enormous holdtrg,
but this could not be traced lo any re
liable source and failed to receive
much credence. The generally ac
cepted thoory was that it was being
pounded by or in tie interest of Ar
mour, who od a lower market would
be able to work down his average,
and, once loaded no with cheap pork,
would bull it for all there is in it.
About the only buyers to-day were
the chronic beats..- Laree quantities
of country pork had to go overboard.
The pit was unusually well filled dur
ing the mornieg, though no excite
ment prevailed. Later the market re
covered 6c, and at 1 o'clock closed
easy. Provisions mess pork sales
