Chicago.Fcb. 1L Wheat declined ",'nK to
day, liquidation by strong local holders and
the general news of the foreign market
imparting a decidedly bearish tone to the
market throughout the session. Corn and
oats were easy on a, small amount of busi
ness, but. closed at substantially unchanged
prices. Provisions suffered another light
May wheat, which closed yesterday at
7GSic opened to-day at 7o?i76?ic Thero
were only a few sales at the higher of tho
quotations, as the influence which prompt
ed the advance lasted for only a few mo
ments. This was" the decline in Englisn
ccnsuls. whleJi. taken in connection with
the unsettled European political situation,
was thought to indicate growing danger
of war. But this -Bias almost Immediately
lost sight of. Liverpool opening cables
shewed a half pence decline. This did
not indicate any apprehension on the part
of foreign speculators. The cables brought
tho information that a lot of the California
wheat shipped to India will be reshipped
to English markets. -The effect of this
news was to cause a break to 75?lc in a
short time. At this point there was a
rally on buying by shorts and a little
bull news in the shape of corn damag
reports which carried the price to 76Xc by
11 o'clock. Then the big slump of the dav
occurred, the market in half an hour tak
ing a straight 1c drop. This was started
by the report that 75 cargoes, above 12.
000,000 bushels, were now afloat for Europe
and will arrive next month; The pre
Kiimptlon was that such a large amount of
wheat would break the market there. It
led to exclusive liquidation, in which some
of the strongest holders In the pit partici
pated. After tho scramble to unload was
over, the market quieted down somewhat
and a slow recovery to 75"&c ensued. This
was only temporarily, however. Liquida
tion started again during the last hour
and the market "already weakened by tho
largo unloading was easily lorceu aown to
75Uc The market had recovered to 73t4c
at tho close
Corn suffered a little In sympathy with
the decline In wheat, May getting down
ta 23J4c. which Is the lowest it has so far
bold this season, or, indeed, at any lime
since it has been traded In for May de
livery. Local shorts did some, covering, at
the concession in prices, sufficient to causa
a rally to the opening ligures. The export
figures. 674.000 bushels, were considered a
favorable factor. May opened unchanged
at 2?.Hc sold between 23"c and 233Jc, clos
ing at 23-ic
.Oat5"were quiet and featureless. At tho
opening', a steady feeling existed, but later
on In the day, when wheat declined, a sim
ilar action took placo here. There wa3
some scattered selling, and buying was
fair atid general. May opened a shado
hisher at 1714c, sold to 17"4c dropped back
to 17c and closed with that price bid.
Trade- in provisions was light, and prices
suffered another small decline, in sym
pathy with the lower yard prices. There
was some covering by shorts near the
close, nnd part of the early loss was re
covered. Packers were the principal sell
ers. May pork closed about 2"4c lower, nt
J7.G7U: May lard, 2&c lower, at t2.H0, and
May ribs about 2V4c lower, at S3.S2ij.

There "was a want of life in the market
yesterday. Cables were again lower and
tho speculative markets all off. The Je
suit was buyers were backward and want
ed concessions, while holders asked old
prices. Hence little trading and the mar
ket closed with huycrs and sellers apart.

New York, Feb. 11. With an abundance
of money still to be "had at cheap rates and
eagerly seeking an outlet for expenditures,
the trading on the Stock exchange contin
ued to be confined to almost insignificant
proportions, and was further restricted to
day owing to the fact that to-morrow will
be a holiday. Aside from the dealings of
the professional element the crowd seems
to be waiting for .Improvement in the gen
eral trade situation, a number of depress--Ing
Influences combining being sufficient to
put a stop almost entirely to speculation.
Much more than half the declines were
again confined to tho Industrial shares.
The market was heavy and drooping al
most throughout under combined influence
of the reflected uneasiness In London and
on the Continent over the rupture between
Turkey and Greece, or Crete. The general
closing was weak and about the lowest of
The bond market displayed heaviness on
decreased transactions, which were largely

HOGS BRING FANCY PRICES.
FIRST SALE OF FINELY BRED SWIXE
EVER HELD IX KAXSAS CITY.
Forty-nine Head Sold at an Average
Price ot $lS.u:t, the Top XotcU
Being SflSr, for n Po
Between 400 and 500 people were In attend
ance yesterday at the first public sale of
fine bred hogs ever held In Kansas City.
Tho sale was conducted at the horse and
mule market of Robertson Bros., Twenty
third and Grand avenue, and was in tho
nature of an experiment, which proved to
be a marked success. The bidding for each
animal was highly competitive, the high
est price paid for a single sow being $185,
and the lowest $27.50. The total proceeds
were $2,333 for forty-nine head, or an aver
age of a fraction over $13.63 per head. The
sows were from W. P. Goode's Kansas City
herd, Lenexa, Kas., and Klrkpatrick &
Son's Rlvcrvlew herd, Connor, Kas. Colo
nel J. W. Sparks and Colonel S. A. Sawyer,
assisted by Colonel James N. Harshbarger,
were the auctioneers.
A circular pen had been erected in tho
sales room, overlooked from the amphithe
ater, and special seats had been construct
ed to the north of the ring, yet a large por
tion of the crowd were compelled to stand.
The hogs were housed in the south row
of stalls of the horse market, and were
driven into the ring through a chute.
It Is seldom that such a splendid collec
tion ot high bred porkers is seen. About
half of them had been bred to Hadley. Jr.,
13314, "the Emperor of Poland China." Had
ley was on exhibition, and probably no lin
er specimen of the first ramily of Virginia
Poland China ever headed a herd. The
largest sow in the sale. Spot II. 2d 23567,
sold for $185. She will weigh 700 pounds In
breeding condition, carrying this immense
weight square on her toes on a set of
strong feet on short legs. She has a neat
head and ear, very deep back and ham,
smooth and well finished, and Is the dam
of Lady Longfellow, Miss Longfellow and
other notable progeny.
Two sows sold at $100 each. These were
U. S. Rollo 3rd and Black U. S. Rose. U.
S. Rollo 3rd Is a typical black U. 3. and
contains as much black U. S. blood as jt is
possible to get without in-breedlng. She
will be bred to Iowa Chief. Black U. S.
Rose is a daughter of Heyl's Black U. S.
She is bred to Black Chief's Rival, a son
of Black Chief. Faultless Model, sired by
Klever's Model, sold for $30. as did also
Daisy Hidestretcher. a daughter of Hide
stretcher. Both are bred to Hadley. Jr.
W. B.'s Jewel 96594. by W. B.'s Tecum
seh, brought $77.50. She is a large yearling
and raised a good fall litter. She Is a half
sister to Hands Off, and is bred to Guy
Wilkes 2nd. She has an extra fine head
and ear, fine style and splendid finish. L.'s
Darkness and L. s McQueen, Dotn daugh
ters of L.'s Tecumseh, and bred to Hadley,
Jr.. each sold for $75. Both arc extra line
Model Queen 2nd. with a little too much
white to suit the eye of the technical crit
ic, but, in spite of this, a beauty, brought
$60. Had her color not been against her
she would have sold for much more money.
She has the blending ot Klever's "Model
and Black IT. S. blood and is bred tcrt H.
& B.'s Chief Tecumseh. Black Governess
2nd 3SS64 S. a line bred Black U. S., by
Governor C. 2nd, dam Governess 3rd. sold
for $52.50. She is bred to Hadley, Jr. Three
head of Hadley, Jr.. lined sows sold for $50
each. These were L.'s Lady Lightfoot. by
L.'s Tecumseh, dam Lady Lightfoot 40th;
Profit I Know, by Chief I Know, dam
Profit 2nd; Oxford Maid, by Maid's Hum
mer, dam Oxford Beauty.
AH of the remaining sales were made at
figures under the average price, though
many of the sows were splendid animals:
The sale is regarded by its promoters as
having been highly successful, and is like
ly to be followed by frequent similar sales.
Breeders heretofore have usually conducted
their sales at their farms, but the ad
vantage of holding them at a central loca
tion was made apparent by yesterday's
FRATERNAL AID OFFICERS.

HOGS Movements for the past 24 hours:
An active but unsettled market was had
yesterday. The opening was hardly so firm
in sympathy with weaker market3 east
of us, but as the day advanced the market
hardened and it was not long before the
early loss was recovered and prices ruled
steady, with a few higher sales of choice
lots toward tho close. Packers were free
huyers with some little order demand.
