For half an hour the general tendency
was tin. and the range of the llil-tiiatlons
was between MfftlUr and 51V. The weak

ndvleec from the Continent The Paris
market was quoted about steady and Iter
lln from 14 murk to l mark higher, nnd
j.'Cnnd cablegrams rather ronllrmod tho
feeling of uncertainty regarding ihc
Trench crop, which the oomparallw llrm.
nvss of Continental markets appeared to
Indicate. The New York market was rel
ntlvely tinner than Chicago. .Some orders
were reported to have been received there
from l'rance mid there wee having or
ders hero also ror the Continent. The
market here tended upward during the
forenoon, after h.ivtiiK Its Mrt weak spell,
but the extent of the rei ovirv did not
carry It above 51'-.' and very tittle could
be sold at that. The llrmiross referred to
was In anticipation of Ilradstreet's visible
ttipply statements over a. bullish feeling,
nnd the etfect of such a report having been
discounted when It was received, the mar
ket. Immediately began to wenken. In
about ten minutes It dropped rrom MVii
M'&e bid to 5l'e sellers. The Minneapolis
nnd Ptilulh reeelpts were 227 cars, ugalnst
3"; cars 11 year ago. The total primary
market receipts were 310,00,) bushels. Clos
lng Paris cables were not encouraging and
the market tlnlshcd weak at 33"'.c.
In the corn jilt the traders had no spec
nlatlon In their eyes and very little In
their actions and business was therefore
of the slimmest kind. The shipping houses
reported a better Inquiry rrom the sea
board for No, It yellow and some was re
porteil to have been worked. The heavi
ness of the wheat market was against
any speculative advance in corn, 11114! such
fluctuations us there w.io favored a
flight reduction In pries. Porn opened at
HV. sold ns low as OMMIV and as high
as 4l';?il5e, and eoeii ,it 41V.
Fluctuations In 0.11s were narrow and In
fluenced entirely bv the course or the
other markets Sales were few and far be
tween: nil small. .May started at 2Mi!")';o.
cold at 2l"-c down to 2S"i,1720e and closed
at that price. To-day's arrivals aggre
gated ninety-six ears, seventy-four of
which were graded contract.
Provisions opened rather eav, but did
not remain so. A demnnd developed which
changed the feeling of wenkness Into one
of decided strength. Shorts were supposed
to be the heaviest buyers, but some was
taken also for long nreount. The offer
ings were not very frte until after pork
had advanced rrom $10.42'.. .it the opening
for May, to $10.72'-. At the latter price
there was more than was wanted, and a
decline to $10.02',.. occurred, leaving the
gains for the dav at 17'o p.r barrel. Itlbs
shared with pork In the Improvement and
made a net g.iln to-day of 5c. but lard
showed at 'ie close no change.

Washington, March 0. The increase of
the enlisted force of the navy by l,(Nf0 men,
allowed by congress, will, It is estimated
nt tho department, afford the means to
put In commission live ships which have
been lying Idle at the navy yards. They
are the Hoston, which has been out of
commission at the .Mare Island naty yard
for nearly a year, meanwhile undergoing
extensive repairing; the armored oiulser
Maine, built at the New York r.ivy yard,
but never In service; the double' turreteil
monitor Amphltrlte, begun back In the
Chandler administration and onlv recently
finished nt the Norfolk navy yard; the
Lancaster, a man-of-war of honorable rec
old, transformed at the Now York navy
yard last fall Into a school ship for sea
men gunners, and the .Marlon, which was
repaired at the Mare Island navy
yard last summer after long service on
the China station. The addition of the
Hoston and the Mai ion to the 1'aelllc sta
tion will greatly aid the navy department
In its efforts to provide a suitable Meet
early next summer for service In the Heh
rlng sea patrol.

western Miller say: Minneapolis mills
last week ground lX2,fti. barrels of Hour
against 139,330 the xveek before. Heporteil
sales of Hour last xveek approximated -j.-0i"3
barrels. The advance tn xvheat stirred
up buyers n little and when millers showed
a disposition to ask more for Hour they
were willing to buy more freely nt the old
quotations. Millers are now asking about
13c per barrel nilvatu e and this has made
business quiet. Haying Is of strictly con
sumptive chnractcr. Low freights have
greatly helped millers, but rumors are cur
rent that sales are to be advanced. The
export shipments were 47.350 barrels
against 43,013 the week before. Superlor
Duluth mills made 20.S70 barrels against
14,!S0 the week before. IMgures should
show something of an increase ror the
