Chicago, Mnrch I. Wheat followed the
fashions tn-tlny nivt look ltd t-tit' from
Paris. French wnrkets were excited nml
higher ntut this, with oilier bullish hews,
u-sullcd In 11 ilrm market licit-, Mny clos
ing c higher. May i-orn closed unchnngeil
nnd Alny ont.t unchanged, hut provisions
ilntohpd nt ndwincos.
Tho wheat market started Ilrm with
plenty of buyers of May nt CIV. whereas
the majority were sellers nt that, tin trad,
lug enmn to n Imlt on Saturday. Inside of
tlm lit wt ten minutes the prion hud reached
f.lt(JIL'. Tho foreign tnnrkets wero nil
quoted strong nt the opening, mul llmt
coming lifter n rather weak ilay on tltla
tddti on Sutilriln-, una tho cause of tho
upward tendency here. The Trench ware,
houso stock report showed l,Rit).Uuv bushels,
itgnlnst 19,niv,t0 bushels Inst year, ami thlfl
marked decrease caused much of the
utreiiRtli shown lioth here and nliroud.
London, Liverpool, Furls and Iterlln were
nil strong mid higher at tho opening. The
English nnil French markets retained thi-lr
strength to the i-lose, tint llerlln was
quoted an winding up with 1 malk decllno
for March mid U mark for later months.
Tho Paris market showrd n further gain
to-day of from o for March to ahont 2e
per bushel for tho May-August term. Liver
pool Blocks of wheat arc i;,t"J tons, or 211,
WH bushels less than they wero n w it-It
ago. Tho receipts til .Minneapolis ami Du
Hitli Welti IM cars, against tM a year ngo.
Tho total quantity received ut primary
markets was SNS.ocm hilshels and the ship
ments of Hour from all primary Western
Points wero equal to uhout 23.VniO hushcls,
Tho amount of wheat on Ocean passage In
creased wo,nii-i hushi-ls dining tin- week,
which more thntl orrsct a ip-crcaso In tho
vlslhlo hero of 716.000 hushcls, hut that did
not prevent another rlo In price hero to
63a for May, which was mainly In consc
quoneo of tho French necessity for wheat
mid tho advance In prlco there. Tho mar
ket reacted to 65',s,e, nt which figure- thero
wns free realizing, causing a ilroji from tho
top, but Aluy closed Ilrm at r.Re.
Tho corn market was Purely sustained by
llrmness In wheat. None of the day's
news was of n character to change pre
viously formed opinions, llecelpts wero
about as expected, and for to-morrow t.V)
cars nru estimated. New York reporteil
buying orders from London, hut the cash
demand for through-billed here was not
any brisker than before, and that absence
of Knstcrn demand Is tho weak feature
w'hich for snmo time has been breeding
bears In this market. The visible In
creased 707,Oii hushcls last week, compared
with 955.1O0 bushels on tho corresponding
week of tho previous year. .May opened
nt lisle, and closed at that price bid. Tho
lowest was 4l7iIIT;c, tho highest Kite.
Nothing of Importance wiih reporteil In
the oats market and u very quiet session
was passed. Prices wero llrmer during tho
creator part of the session, In sympathy
with corn, but at the close was L"JiBe for
May, utter having sold as high as 29jr.
Tho visible supply showed a ilecieas,- In
oats of lMt.noo busm-ls, which may possibly
liiivn helped tho early firmness to some ex
tent. Provisions wero Ilrm at the opening and
It developed In tho course of tin- session
thu offerings worn not sulllcleut to supply
tho demand, which was supposed to be
largely from Cudahy. t'ndcr such clrrum
stnncos the prlco kept hardening and at tho
closo tho best rates of tho day were ob
tainable. The day's gains for the May
deliveries wero 17Hc In pork, 7'-c In lut'd
nnd 10 cents in ribs.
AN OKLAHOMA LOBBY.

Territorial I.t-gNlutiirr ti u
Guthrie, O. T., .March I. (Special.)
Xottvlthstnmliiifr tho fact that hut four
more days of thu session remain, tho
legislature spent most of tho day In fili
bustering, and very little business wns
In the lower house a combine of four
teen members has been formed to locate
various institutions, ami a measure of
any other member, m matter what Its
character or how vital or how impor
tant to tho whole territory. Is voted
down without any consideration.
The iniluence of one of the most cor
nipt nml bold lobbies ever seen In the
West is being seen on every side, and
people who are Interested in the passage
of bills have been openly approached by
prol'essionnl lobbyists, who threaten to
have the hills defeated unless It Is made
an object to them to interfere. The state
house has been deserted of a large part
of tho members during the day, a num
ber of whom have been In caucus in tho
olllco of one of the leading lobbyists
The bill to establish n normal school
at Alva was defi-ated and the bill to
tax transient property went to a con
ference. JS'one of the tax or bond bills
have yet been agreed mi by the two
In the senate a bill was Introduced to
make all warrants good In paying taxes
mid one organizing the territorial board
of equalization, while a bill was passed
amending the Australian olet-tioii law.
The houso passed one little bill chang
ing tho time of listing of property for
taxation from February to .March 1.
This evening Speaker Harnes appoint
ed a s-ifting committee to go through
the calendar and bring up at once all
bills of general importance. It is now
almost certain that tho appropriation
bill will have attached tu It a lot of
vicious county seat legislation and other
schemes, tin- belief being that the gov
ernor will not dure veto this bill, as it
would closo moat of the territorial In
stitutions. SPITE AGAINST KANSAS.

Washington, March i. (Special.) Tho
Fort Hayes military reservation bill,
donating that reservation to Kansas for
agricultural purpos-es. Is smothered to
death at the "White House, Its olllcial
death will bo known as tho "pocket
The Kansas members of tlm late con
gress worked together to get that bill
through nnd In a. very short time sue
ccedeil. It went to the president .Sat
urday, but no attention was given to It
at all. It Is piled up with a number of
other bills which tho president refused
to consider. It la suggested that had
thero been any gold bond rako off so
that a few millions could have been
taken In by some of the Intimate flnnn
clnl friends of the prei-Ident the bill
would hnvo been signed.
Colonel .Moore, of tho Second Kansas)
district, Is also out of luck with tho
president. Tho colonel got through a
bill JuNt one and It related to the re
moval of desertion chui'ges against Cap
tain Seaman, of Fort Scott. The bill
was sent to tho president some days
ago, but It was treated with silent con
tempt. It )s also understood that tho pension
claims of Salmana Alungould, of Car
bondale, and Louisa Alayberry, of North
Topeka, havo shared tho samu fate.
It has been decided by the court of
claims that tho president ran consider
and sign bills ton days after tho end of
the session, but this plan cnlls for a lit
tle moro work on the part of the presi
dent, and hence It Is concluded by Sir,
Cleveland "'"' 10 wl" "ol conform to
this plan. He will consider nothing
after the end of the congress. Had It
not been for the postmaster general he
would not have signed the antl-lottcry
bill. Tho work of Cardinal Gibbons and
others Interfered with tho fiorman
llrlce sehem' on thut measure to such
an extent that they concluded' to allow
It to get through. It was sent to the
president by U o'clock, and the postmas
ter tfen ral Induced tho president to add
his name to It, making It a law.

market for all offerings. There were hut
few good native cornfed steers In and what
offering sold quickly and generally brought
lOo more money. Cows were In light sup
ply, steady und In good demand. Choice In
some instances brought a little more
money Stockers nnd feeders were in very
good demand for Monday and ruled steady.
Hangc cattle made up three-fourths of the
offerings. And under the Iniluence of In
creased supply the market opened slow nnd
a little lower, but became stronger as the
day advanced, nnd closed a little higher, as
many native cattle buyers had to Anally
take Texas. Milch cows steady and in

another good market. Less than 12.000 head
came In to-day mid there were orders hero
for a considerably larger number. Compe
tition was strong enough to carry up prices
10fii3c at tho start, and strong enough to
hold them there. Almost anything In tlm
shape of n sleer was saleable at better
than $4.00. while the bulk sold about $1.10,
from $1.30 lo $3.60 being the popular prices.
Choice qualities were ut $5.C5'!?5.S5, and
extra around $0.00. Good to choice cows
and heifers showed corresponding Improve
ment, and so did stockers and feeders of
the better class.
HOGS Hecelpts. -10,01)0. The market was
n little uneven, being weak in the Rock
Island and Hurllngton divisions, nnd fully
steady In the Northwest, but the variations;
In values were too slight to make necessary
a change In quotations. The receipts wero
as the "talent" had expected. There was
not a very active demand either from pack
ers or shippers and some hogs were left In
sellers' hands. Sales were at $3.8.Vin.40 for
verv common light to prime heavy. Aver
ages of less than 200 pounds sold princi
pally at Sl.liivff 1.15, and SI.15ftl.S0 bought tho
bulk of the heavier weights.
SHEI1P Receipts, 12,im. Good to best
grades of sheep and lambs were stronger,
and the poorer kinds were nt least steady.
The receipts, which at first It was thought
would reach 11,000 head, turned out to be
less. The close, therefore, was better than
the opening. Quotations ranged from $2.50
to $1.00 for poor to extra sheep and $3.2.iSi;
5.50 for lambs.

This gave tho other buyers a good oppor

slow with the buyers bidding lower. In tho
