Bull Market
iSpeeial Telegram to the Globe. \
Chicago, Feb. 9.The week ending to
day has been one of greater activity
in grain and provision circles than for !
pome time past. Outside orders have been
larger, but the bulk of the business was
local, and by the same crowd of operators
■who were foremost in the markets for the
past two months. There is a growing ten
dency among the moat conservative brokers
and speonlaturs to go slower as the time is
now at hind when a sharp npturn is liable
to occur, and those who have watched mar
kets for j eara think the indications for
such a movement are becoming more ap
parent every day.
Wheat was the leading feature in specu
lative markets to-day. The receipts for
the week foot up 186,000 bushels, and the j
shipments 91,900 bushels, and stocks will I
show an increase. Taking tho amount
in store here to-day at 13,000,000 bushels,
and the stock that is liable to accumulate
between now and the opening of lake nav
igation, it will require an average weekly
shipment of 1,250,000 tons to take it all
oat before August. The market to day
was active and strong, and advanced lj^c.
Advices from New York quoted a better
tone, with a Chicago party, supposed
to be Sid Kent, buying in that
market to help his friends to bull wheat
here. Cables, however, were weak and
dull, as on previovs days. A very strong
undertone was developed, and was helped
along by reports of cold weather in winter
wheat regions, and a decrease in the visi
ble supply of 1,250,000 bushels. As the |
latter is one of the chief bull arguments
usoi the report was taken with a little Bait,
but it served the purpose of the bulls ad
mirably. The market opened rather easy,
any many expected another break and
Bold heavily for a few minutes, but the
market held up and with free buying by
Nat. Jones, Ream, Poole. Kent & Co. the
Spruauee packing crowd, and Boch.
Much of the takings of the latter was re
ported to be for Lindblom, who has been j
short a long time; but as Roach is known j
to be his own best customer, and one of
the most difficult operators to follow, on
account of his propensity for sudden
changing, it' is impossble to tell to a cer
tainty exactly what he is Tip to. The gen
eral opinion is that he was buying for an
upturn. Opening sales were at 99%0,
9y?^c for May, and prioes advanced un
der presistent buying, to fl.Ol
with few fluctuation it receded to $1.00%
and closed firm at $I.oo^@l.oo^,
which was 2o above the close one week
ago. On the curb the strong feeling con
tinued and long loat gales were made at $1.
Winter wheat removed dull with not
enough; doing to establish quotations,
millers ordering very sparingly, and the
few orders received for sample lots were
filled without difficulty.
Corn was about the dullest artiole on the
speculative list except ' oats and
rye. Trading was light and enterely
local scalping and at time,
it was almost deserted. The feeling was
weak from opening to close, and was only
supported by the strength in wheat and
provisions, and the prospect of a marked
falling off in reoeipes next week. Arrivals
to-day were 356 cars, 83 o irs being con
tract, and for the week aggregated 1,515,
--000 baehel?, and shipments were 676,000
bushels. The visible supply is expected
to show an increase of 1,500,000 buehele.
Opening sales were made at 58J^c
for May. Nat Jones bought moderately
for a time and sent prioes up to SSJgO
but the advance could not be maintained
as there was not enough general buying
and prioes receded to 55^0 and finally
closed at 58%e on change and at 58% oon
the curb. In sympathy with the advance
in wheat the shipping demand for low
grades was moderate and supplied from
car lots on track at lower prices than Fri
day. During the week vessel roem was
engaged for 195,000 bushels, but only 100,
000 bushels of No. 2 was loaded.
Oats were quiet but stronger and }£@
Vc higher, the strength being entirely due
to the upward movement in other articles,
as the demand from shippers was light.
The receipts of hogs were small, aggre
gregating 91,734 for the week, against
121,089 for the previous week, and 132,271
for the corresponding period last year.
The quality is poor this season. The
market is stronger and advanced 40@500
per 100 pounds. Shippers took 50 per
cent, of the (offerings, which was an
unusual thing for this time of the year.
The supply of hogs at interior points were
also light, any many small |honses have
been forced to close for the season. The
number of nog 3 packed here to date is
1,882,000, against 2,272,000 in 1882, and
2,258,000 in 1881. '
The provisions market, while not ex
hibiting as much life as on former days,
was quite active at times, but trading was
mainly on local speculative account, and
for May delivery. Baldwin, MoHenry,
Cudahy & Stevens and a few others bought
pork quite freely in a quiet way at inter
vals, and a strong undercurrent prevailed
from the opening to the close, which was
20@25c per barrel higher than last sales
of Friday. Since the opening of the week
prices have advanoed 1 at, 1.20, and olosed
firm at outside quotations of the week.
Lard was traded in to a fair extent by
local speculators, but outside orders were
light, a very strong feeling prevailed, and
prices advanced 10@12}£o per 100 lbs.
from last night's close, and for the week
showed an appreciation of 50@G0o. There
was more shipping demand, and 5,000
tierces were taken for export to Liverpool
to cover shorts there.
Short ribs were quite active, Gndahy
& Stevens bought freely all day, and their
takings are estimated at 3,000,000 lbs.,
which caused an advance of 10@15o, end
they closed at the outside quotations of the
• . ■ ■",'■■.
day, whioh were 37^@400 over the last j
sales of one week ago..
The shipping demand for meats was I
moderate as the southern trade will - not ;
purchase much in the market until stocks ,
at interior points have been exhausted. A.
M. Wright & Co. says: "Pork active and
stronger; lard firm and moderately active,
with strength largely due to soaroity of
hogs and advance in pork; short ribs mod
erately aotive and speculative futures ad
vanoed 150 per 100 pounds and olosed at
about outside prices, the demand being
chiefly to cover shorts." Mill
mine, Bod man & Co. say: "Wheat
market here ' opened 99% c May and
under aolive demand from the shorts Bold
up almost from the opening to $I.oo}£,
and later, on buying by prominent local
operators, wbb advanced to % 1.01 closing
steady at $1.00% @ 1.00%; corn firm,
opening at 58)^o for May, it sold up to
58^c, and olosed at 58% c. Some outside
buying orders were received. The mo3t
noticeable feature in the market to-day
was the great scarcity of offerings. Corn
has many friends among the solid houses I
here, and higher prices later on are oon- I
fidently predicted. As with wheat, we
think it a safe purohase on all soft spots.' |
The receipts of cattle were smaller by
1,000 head than on any day this year. j
There was a sharp demand for all sorts j
and values ruled considerably stronger and j
in some instances higher than at the close i
yesterday. The receipts of hogs to-day, :
like those of cattle, were the lightest since I
the opening of the year— 7,000 head.
There was a liberal demand from shippers
and packers; the former, however, secured
the bulk of the offerings, but were forced
to pay an advance of s@loc per 100
pounds on account of tho competition
from packers. Receipts of sheep were j
0,000 head. For the good lots offered . a
sharp demand existed and the highest
prices of the week were realized, the
market being very strong. Common and
ordinary lots were steady, with a fair cull
for all on sale.

Chicago, Feb. —In the local money
market this week the demand for money
by the board of trade men and others has
been moderate and below the wishes of
oar leading discount bouses, i.nd with a
good supply of idle capital seeking em
ployment, all the gilt edged paper that
appeared was promptly taken at 5@7
per cent. Rail rates to the sea board
have been unsettled,but now are quoted on
a basis of 300 per 100 lbs. on grain and
350 per 100 lbs. on provisions to New
York. The bank clearings to-day were
$7,007,000, and for a week foot up $45,

responding week in 1883.

New Yobk, Feb. 9.--The syndicate for
the purpose of advancing the price of
shares was full of business this morning, |
and the market vas one of the strongest |
that has been peon in along time. Central
& Hudson was th 9 card during tho early
hours. Rumors that the Vanderbilt inter
ests and the west shore wore harmonizing
assisted the advance. Delaware and Lacka
wanna came to the front cmong the coalers,
and was rather the leader all day, rising
from 12G)4 to 127 . Pullman Palace was
reported next with a bound from 111 Jd to
114. The grangers just about
held their own. The Northern
Pacifios, Oregon Transcontinental and the
non-dividend payers generally were not
sought after. There was some very good
baying of Rock Island as tho day wore oa
The shorts covered large linec in sever ,4
of the leading stocks, but still the demand
continued. At 2 o'clock the market was
fairly booming with a good bt>-ones3 ]
throughout the list. Being the clo"3 of We !
week there was naturally cor>,s>dpr&b'.'j j
realizing at the last, and s'.ight ifaoticEs
were in order. The tone at the close v. ,-*
steady. The bank statement was a favor
able one showing an increase in receive.
To all appearances, we have bad to-day
an old time bull market. The opening
was very quiet, but also very firm. La?a
wanna was moved to the front as leader,
and soon the Yanderbilts rallied and the
Chicago, Burlington & Quinsy, Rook Is
land, and all the good dividend papers'
joined the advance, and without dash or
spasmodic effects the lust gradually moved
up, with now and then a halt for breath,
and apparently to make sure of their foot
ing, cloeing at about the best figures of the
day. Leading room traders acknowledge
they got left out in the cold in the last
downward turn a>id say they now look for
better prices for all gocd dividend stock?.
The buying in Rock Island was extremely
good and the stock shows a gain of 3}^
points for the day.
Prominent parties wer9 loaning Lacka
wanna flat, making it very plenty, and they
can make it worth a round premium when
they get ready. During the middle hours
and up to the close dividend stocks were
active, especially Rook Island, Chicago, j
Burlington & Quincy, New York Central,
Lake Shore, St. Pan", Missouri Pacific and
Lackawanna. St. Paul, while very active,
did not show the strength manifested by
the others, but held from 93 to 93% all
day. West Shore bonds were very uncer
tain in their movement. 'Vanderbilt is
said to have control of the North River I
Construction company. The market closed
very bullish in tone with indications of a
still further advance.
Cutting Rates on Lumber.
The ten-cent cut rate is still in effect on
lumber from Chicago to the Missouri
river, at common points. The St. Paul
roads reduced rates on the same basis from
Rock Island, Clinton, Lyon, and lower
Mississippi river points. The rate from
St. Paul, Minneapolis and Still water re
mains fifteen cents, and Eau Claire and
Menomonee seventeen cents, the same as
the rate prior to the cut from Chioago.
The rates from this territory are solid by
way of either of . the three
routes from * St. Paul. The
out rate from Chioago was the outcome of
the refusal on the part of the Eau Claire
Lumber company to waive its contract of
rates of two cents per 100 above rates
from Chioago. The consequence is, that
the whole country will be filled with Chi
oago lumber, as the lines from Eau Claire
cannnot meet the rates in consequence of
the lines running from Council Bluffs
notifying the St. Paul and the Chicago,
Milwaukee &■ Omaha roads that they will
not pro rate with them on any out rates.'

order allowing the receiver of the New

The adverse decision of the senate judi-
I ciary committee on the nomination of
Paul Strobach does not seem to be so much
the result of senatorial opposition to the
administration as it is of a division of the
administration against itself. It is sup
posed that in making appointments the
president consults the head of the depart
ment in which the appointment is to', be
made, but this nomination in the depart
ment of justice was opposed by the
attorney general, who sent a letter ■to the
committee that while Strobachwas acquit
ted last summer when tried for collecting
false emolument returns when marshal
before, that the attorney general had
abundant proof that Strobaoh . was guilty.
This decided the committee against him.
One surmise is that the president had rea
sons for wishing to make the nomination,
but didn't want Strobaoh confirmed, and
another is that Mr. Brewster has become
alarmed over discoveries made by Mr.
Springer's oommittee, and concluded it
would be discreet to prevent Strobaoh's
confirmation. It appears that Strobacn
collected his illegal fees as a campaign

a free interchange ;of opinion
in that subject, V which may
have a tendency to seaure moderation on
the part of the lenders of a majority of
the party, but it is conceded '■' that unan
imity cannot be hoped for, nor will the
minority agree to be bound by the action
of a caucus. Permanent officers of the
caucus are to be elected in place of Gen
eral Rosencrans, chairman, and Mr. Bel

Forty-seventh congress. While there is
some dissatisfaction with Bosencrans as

. Several months ago New York Sun
threw out the 'gestion that the "Democrats
hold their national convention late |in the
season, adding that the interval between
August and November was sufficiently long
for all purposes of \ a presidential; cam
paign. It is evident that the suggestion is
meeting with considerable favor, and
a number of gentlemen prominent,in
the councils of the Democratic party
will urge such a suggestion when the
committee meets here on the 22d inst.
August is the month they prefer, leaving
the date an open question. Gan. Single
ton wsa asked to day what effect this
would have upon Cbioago's chances for
securing the convention. Ac replied in
effect that it would be helpful rather than
otherwise. He is a wily diplomat and this
is probably a potent faotor in his advoca
cy of a short ennvasa.. He says the
contest has narrowed down to; Chicago and
Saratoga, other cities being practically out
of the race. As between Chioago and Sar
atoga the chances are in favor of the for
mer, more especially if August be the
month selected, as the Saratoga hotels are
filled to overflowing during that month
He is serenely confident that Chicago will
be the place selected. ... ;. ..;
Cheong Woo Bang, a native of China
appeared at the clerk's office to-day, for
j the purpose of becoming a citizen of the
j United States. He stated that he came
here when fifteen years of age, and resided
here continuously since, excepting a short
j time spent in China on a visit. He has
been educated here and joined a Christian
I church, and desired to remain a citizen of
! this country. The clerk decided that no
j relief could be given him ir consequence
of the act of May Gth, 1882, which provides
"that hereafter no state court or court of
the United States shall admit the Chinese
to citizenship."
Secretary Folger to-day rendered a de
cision settling the contest over the classifi
cation of rice meal and small rice, broken,
into small particles in process of cleaning.
The secretary holds that these qualities are
subjeot only to duty of twenty per cent,
advalorum, instead of one-half cent per
pound, as charged upon the cleaned rice.
This question is of great importance to
brewers, as this small rica has, the pest
