New York, May 21. The improvement In
the stock market continues, and an a result
of to-lay's trannaeilonn a higher range
of alut- W4 established. This specula
t.ori w,is mainly conlliu-d to the lo-'al trad
er the foreigners also being entirely out
"f h- market. There were, however, a
ii'imber of onlers from out of town on
I -oil tiln of the account. The volume of
bu uet-s was moderate. Distilling leading

1 ombined to depress the stock J?i per cent.
'lne market continued strong up to and
be-ond midday, the upward movement
r.gt being checked until about 1:30, when a
tiear demoiiiitrutton was made ugalnnt the
grangers, on the circulation of a report
that it was a settled conclusion that at the

, The New York World yesterday printed
telegraph reports from nearly sou points In
the wheat belt. "These reports," It says,
"show that on the vast wheat farms of
the .Northwest, In Minnesota mid the Da
kotas. the wheat ctop Is not only unin
jured, but actually Is In better than the
nvernge condition. 'Never better' Is a sig
nificantly frequent expression of the cor
respondents from that section or the conn
try. l-'roni the southern section of the
wheat belt there come a tlirferent story,
Kansas retsjits Indicate les than half a
crop. In Illinois, Indiana and Ohio chinch
btiKs, rust and other Ills have aided the
frost In tlnlng extensive damage to wheat.
Missouri anil Michigan also report heavy
ios-ej. im ine i-aciiic slope, wnicn is oe-t-otnltig
one of the largest wheat producing
sections lit Hie country, all reports agree
that the crop l above the average. Tak
ing the whole wheat belt together with
the I'uclllc slope, It seems clear from these
reports that the present prospects are for
nt least an average etoi). I-'avor.ible condi
tions and an Incrensed crop In the vast
Ileitis of the Northwest will easily make
tip for the lessened crops In the diminished
wheat area of the Central states."
The agricultural department's May re
port on foreign crop conditions says:
Throughout Western Europe the season Is
very backward and In Northern Europe
there Ins been little moisture. Cereals
In .treat Itrltnln are promising and there
Is an excellent prospect of nn unusual
rrtilt season. In Ktance both the wheat
and sugar beet areas have been considera
bly re.lut ed The wheat crop will be heav
ily r dut.sl, one estimate placing the
prodiii t at 2.sS,000.n00 bushels. Repot Is from
liermany are unfavorable, as winter set-dings
have not advanced satisfactorily. Pas.
tuns have suffered from the lack of moist
ure ami clover Is thin. Complaints of
considerable damage come from Saxony
ami Prussia. Itye appears to be unite
yellow and sometimes black. Over n large
area It will be replaced by summer seed.
In Helglum and the Netherlands farmers
hae made up at rears anil 11 good hat vest
Is expected. Spain has suffered from
heavy rainfalls, though an avenge har
vest is now cxpei ted. More than any oth
er European country. Italy has been fa
vored by the weather and the prospect
tor soon crons is nigniy rnvornuic. tup
season in Austtla-llungary Is very back
ward ami the crop may suffer from the
severe winter. Wheat Is promising, but
barley prospects are nut so favorable. Cop
ious warm rains have brought winter
seedlngs in Koutnanla into good condition,
though Interfering somewhat with the
Held work and limiting the area of the
spring seedlngs. liussia retsirts are uni
formly or nn tinravoraiile tenor anil large
areas have hail to be resown, especially In
Poddla. Volhynla and Klen. The winter
left the niitumn sown plants In Poland
In bad condition, but In Caucasus pros
pects ore excellent.
Washington, May 21. The crop conditions
of Europe and changes In the area tie
voted to crops In this country are reviewed
in 11 icport prepared nt the agricultural
department. Spring plowing throughout
this country Is shown to be rather more
forward this season than usual nt the be
ginning of May. Tile work, however. Is
not evenly balanced, nnd there Is a mnrketl
deficiency in the New England, Middle ami
Southern states. In the New England and
Middle states, the pastilles, though back
wanl from local drouth and cold weather
and excessive rains, have set well ami
promise a line crop. In the South the out
look Is favorable, flrazlng lands on the
Paclllc coast, except in California, have
beer, iiijuietl by dry. cold weather, and
pastures In mountain states generally have
not developed well. Meadows generally
fall 10 per cent below the standard of nor
mal condition, a general decrease of the
area devoted to wheat throughout the
entire wheat raising legion Is reported
due both to low prices and the winter
killing of the crop. There is a material
Increase in the corn area, and In the South
ern states the disposition to reduce the
cotton area ami to substitute corn is
glowing. A general Increase of fruit and
vegetable mining for the markets Is 1 im
ported from the Smith, and expansion of
the potato area Is promised throughout
New England, the Southern anil Middle
stntes. and most of the Western, oats
and barley will supplement corn In taking
up the tlecieased wheaT area ami llax area
shows a slight Increase In Kentucky ami
some Western states. Strawberries ami
pent, are receiving more attention in the
South and the raising of sweet jrn and
tomatoes for canning is to dimlnisa on ac
count of a reported depression In tin- In
dustry. Foreign reports show that through
out Western Europe the "eason Is very
backward, and in Northern Europe there
has b.-cn little moisture. Cereals In (.rent
Itrltnln are promising, ami there Is an ex
cellent prospect of an unusual fruit season.
Onuses there are all backward and clover
ruth, r thin over considerable areas. Pota
toes are very high anil choice seed potatoes
are selling in the Western countries at $10
a ton. Sales or English wheat since har
vest are estimated at 27.iVM.0'io bushels, anil
storks In llrst hands at I3.i).0iio bushels, a
falling olf of over 7,0tW,n00 bushels since the
coiiet-poniling period last enr. Imports
of corn during tie- eleven weeks of the har
vest year ending- April 13, aggregate 30,
(tOO.iioii bushels, a decided decrease, but
prices have not advanced.

IVero I'Uc tower and Provi
Chicago, HI.. May 21 -The edge was tak
en off the bull movement on the board of
trade to-day anil everything closed loner.
In comparison with yesterday's llnal fig
ures, wheat finished IV off; corn l'.c,
oats ic pork 3tV, lard nnd ribs 2V each.
The weakness In grain was owing tn
heavy realizing sales made In the face of
the most gloomy crop reports yet received,
and that In provisions was the result of
the heavy receipts of hogs and the weak
ness In corn,
A reaction was In order In the grain mar
kets. The commission houses that for two
weeks have been urging their customers
who nan good proms in wneat uougni iu
takv them, succeeded In length In Inducing
a stilllclent number to sell to cause a
considerable setback In the price. Although
the Llverjiool wheat market opened 2d
lower than It closed yesterday, and It had
ralnetl In Knnsas during the nlghl, the mar
ket here opened with some buyers willing
to pay 79o for July wheat, Not many,
however, paid that; the great majority
were willing to sell nt 7SV, or the snme as
It was worth at the close of yesterday's
session, and some even pressed some wheat
for sale which had a good profit In It at
7$i,e. A great deal of wheat was wanted at
from 7SHc up to 7Sie, anil before the
early buying orders which succeeded the
opening urenk could be all filled the price
rose again to 79o. For about fifteen or
twenty minutes, the price heaved up nnd
down In Irregular swells and depressions
between 7SR(, and 79c, and then came a
crash. Corn, which was showing heaviness
on account of the liberality of receipts of
that article, commenced to tumble, and
when It had broken to Uc below the price.
It had closed nt yesterday, then wheat hail
a sympathetic spasm and collapsed sud
denly to 77',c. The reviving Influence of
fresh buying orders was again npplled and
before many minutes It had again recov
ered to 79!,c. The llrst downward plunge
was due to the lower cables, sales by long
and the execution of stop loss orders. On
the next turn It declined to 75c and then
kept wobbling" lazily for nn hour or more
between 7S!ic nnd 79c. The volume of trad
ing was very much reduced as compared
with the tremendous bulk of business tlone
every day for ten days back. There were
considerable Intervals during which there
was actual dullness In the pit, but nt no
time was there an entire absence of nerv
ous watchfulness that kept tho pit tilled
with brokers, all alert for contingencies.
The reiwrts from the country concernlnd
the crops of the states of Indiana and Illi
nois were woeful In tlielr mnnnlnnnus reit
eration of destruction. In addition to those
states, Ohio, Kentucky nnd Missouri Joined
the doleful chorus, nnd even the North
west had some complaints to send about
unfavorable weather for spring wheat, but
It was raining In South Dakota this morn.
Ing, so that, n regards spring wheat, tho
iK-llef In 11 good prospect for It did not suf
fer. The market began to weaken very
much after the noon hour nnd lone wheat
kept coming out in heavy chunks from
that time up to the close. That resulted
In a rapid and heavy tlrop In the price.
Thcte were strong lights during the de
cline, tit 7Sc, 77ifce and finally 76ic, but It
was not until the latter point was reached
that the selling onlers censed to prevail.
There was a rapid recovery, to 77c. In the
last few- minutes, but at the close there
were sellers nt 77e, and It dropped to 765,0
before tho crowd separated.
The corn market again suffered from
heavy receipts anil favorable outlook for
the next crop. A good demand from the
senboard, resulting In the sale for export
of 25O,(ki0 bushels, sustained the price early
In the day, but the afternoon weakness of
wheat and the line weather were the most
Influential factors In the end. nnd a con
siderable decline resulted. The opening
price for July was. M)ic. or Uc under the
previous days closing quotation. It was
prevented from getting very weak while
the cash business reportetl was under wav,
but gradually worked down to 5314c. It
had a quick reaction to SSc, which was
the price at the close.
Further and more discouraging- reports
of crop damage by the weather started a
comparatively llrm feeling In the oats mar.
ket. It did not Inst long, however, weak
enlng with wheat and corn. There was freo
selling on the decline and nt times some
dllrlculty was experienced In llntllnff buy
ers. Taken ns a whole, however, business
wa.s active anil sales heavy.
Provisions were weak from beginning to
end. The hog receipts are providing more
than the cash demand will absorb, and
corn Is weak.
Is lowered. With receipts of only nliout
.I.SOi) head to-day, cattle were active, and
stronger, with somo sales nt an advance.

left over from yesterdny, and there wero

abled buyers to obtain what they wanted
at an average decline of 5c per 100 pounds.
At reduced prices a good business wan
transacted, and the larger part of the sup
ply was uisposeu or, the nest heavy hogs
selling at JI.50 and the best light weights
at $4.60. At the close, however, the best
heavy hogs soltl at $4.65, und tho best light
at $1.30. The continued Increase In the re
ceipts as compared with recent weeks,
and tlie corresponding time last year. Is
regarded as a pretty good Indication that
liogs are much plentler In the AVestern
states than had been generally uilpposed.

SHEEP Receipts, 9,000, This has been

The receipts continue fair, hut aro not
equal to the demand of local dressed
meat firms, antl prices promise to mount
still higher. There Is no doubt that the
supply of fat sheep is now seriously re.
ducetl and until the Northwestern sheep
now feeding are ready to ship to market

to be too small to meet tho wants of buy
