Chicago, Feb. 19.—The stock of grain is
attracting very general attention, and an at
tempt is being made here, notably by A. M.
Wright <fc Co., and by Charles Randolph, the
secretary of the board of trade, to gather re
liable statistics in regard to the visible supply,
which shall at least approximate to correct
ness. The following are the figures which
have been gathered, and it will be interest
ing to compare them with the fluctuating and
unreliable so-called "visible supply" reports
sent out from New York:
Chicago elevators, as per official' returns,
contain 12,761.937 bushels of wheat, 5,658,
169 bushels of corn, 1,596,022 bushels of
oats, 1,757,809 bushels of rye, aud 260,194
bushels of barley, making a grand total of
22.034,131 bushels, against 21,001,299 bush
els a year ago, and 12.000,229 bushels at this
period last week. Vessels in the harbor are
laden with 91,200 bushels of wheat, 741,360
bushels of corn and 101,765
bushels of oats. The total
amount of grain in store and afloat here
is 22,968.456 bushels, against 22,481.'.(46
bushels a week ago. Milwaukee warehouses
are stored with 2,998,315 bushels of wheat,
18,397 bushels of corn, 2,506 bushels of oats,
25.690 bushels of rye and 634,454 bushels of
barley. New York aud Brooklyn warehouses
are stored with 4,831,359 bushels of wheat,
1,345,034 bushels of corn, 2,286,340 bushels
of oats, 171,448 bushels of rye and 321,000
bushels of barley.
The following figures compiled by Chas.
Randolph, secretary of the board of trade,
show the amount of grain in sight in this
country, including stocks in store, afloat and
in transit ou the 16th inst.; wheat, 34,212,
253 bushels; corn, 13,112,307 bushels; oats,
4,782f£37 bushels; rye, 2,302,223 bush
els; barley, 2,145,315 bushels. Min
neapolis is added to the points
heretofore Included. The stock of wheat at
that point is 2,620,000 bushels. Taking this
out of the list the figures show a reduction in
wheat during the week of about 550,000
bushels. Comparison will hereafter be
made in this correspondence, with the re
ports of the secretary of the board of trade of
Chicago, instead of New York reports.
The flour market was quiet and trading
particularly light for the day, with home buy
ers picking up a limited quantity daily but
for shipping stock, little was doing, and ex
porters have no buying orders. The finer
winters and the better Minnesota springs
were quite firmly held and above previous
quotations, but otherwise no change was
noticeable. Rye flour dull. Buckwheat flour
slow, at from §5.50 for choice to not wanted
at all when poor. Bran and all millstuffs
At the stock yards th receipts of cattle were
about the same for the day and for the week
as for the corresponding period last week.
The demand for shipping cattle was slow,and
prices were slow and a shade lower. The
advance of last Saturday on shipping and
dressed beef cattle was entirely lost yesterday,
and there was no improvement to-day.
There was a good demand for all descrip
tions of butchers' stocks and several large
lots sold at the high prices current. The de
mand for stockers and feeders is only fair,
the high prices, and the absence of the regu
lar eastern buyers contributing largely to the
dullness, The supply is not heavy. There
were 2,000 more hogs received than for the
corresponding day last week, and about
7,000 increase over last week for the corres
Trade opened dull and prices weak, with a
decline of 10@15c. on rough packing and
light hogs. There was less of a decline on
really choice, and good heavy, and a few
early sales of such were made at as high prices
as yesterday, but the late arrivals shared the
decline of common and light. The general
market was dull and depressed from first to
last, with 22,000 the 25,000 on sale, and a
sharp decline on # provisions.
One of the weak points about the market
was the report that a good many lots of salt
meats bought for European account had been
resold, those for whom they were bought pre
ferring to take their profits at this end.
Milmine, Bodman & Co. say to-night:
Provisions red hot. The clique still free
sellers, and the country also very unsettled
and uncertain market; very dangerous deal
Shepard & Peacock say: The market is ir
regular and not a little nervous,
shdWing indications that inside
operations have shifted part of
their load at any rate and thrown it upon the
Crittenden <& Harvey say: "Prices are
high enough^ to sell with safety but the
market bears signs of manipulation and sell
ing might prove hazardous."
McConnick, Kennett & Day say: "Packers
and insiders continue to sell heavily, and as
the deal is manipulated they can put the
market up or down at will."
Robt. Lindblom & Co. say: "Provisions
opefted very weak. The whole country is
Jong and packers will likely put it low enough
to wipe out all the margins. Those who en
joy trading in it will have a
chance to play against loaded dice.
We would rather not attempt to "get ahead of
Wheat waa quoted quiet and steady in
Liverpool, with a better tone for spot delive
ries. Advices from Kansas reported cold
weather, and the wheat fields covered with
ice. These advices, with reports of cold
weather in the northwest and an approaching
storm from that section, caused a firmer feel
ing at the opening, and the first sales were
14@%c over yesterday's close on call, and
influenced by an active demand from the
shorts, who had sold indiscriminately on
yesterday's break, and the execution of buy
ing orders from Kansas and
other points, where there was
a sleet scare, prices appreciated
%@lc further; No. .2 opened at 99%@
$1.00&; May advanced to $1.00%@X- The
advance checked the demand to fill orders, a
majority of which were at about $1 and when
the shorts were filled the weakness in provi
sions increased the disposition to Bell wheat,
the offerings including a good many lots
bought late yesterday or early this morning
for a scalp. It was also reported that the
wave from the north was moving to the
northeast through Canada and a further
break in pork increased the pressure to real-
L ize, and prices fell to the inside
figures of the morning, when buying to
fill orders as noted above and
reports of improved export demand at the
seaboard, again rallied quotations to $1.00 X ?
but they broke on receipt of later selling
orders from the outside and closed at $1.00#
Corn was only moderately active, the de
mand not being large and there were indica
tions that holders of large lots were trying to
sustain prices. There was little in the situa
tion to inspire confidence, the reported stocks
here showing a considerable increase over
last Tuesday. The inspection was
359 cars, of which 81 were
contract grades, against 45 yesterday.
The buying was chiefly to cover shorts, but
prices advanced y,c in response to the im
provement in wheat, but later receded and
closed >4(5 9»c under the highest prices.
On the call there was a very lively time:
1,175,000 bushels of May wheat were sold at
S1.email@example.com%, and 1,370,000 bushels May
corn went at 59%@59%c. During the day
the "big 4" were large sellers, as were also
the "silver greys," i. e., the Adams'. Nat.
Jones, was said to be the real party in 1,000,
000 bushels which were put up by Martin &
Bennett, On curb wheat closed at $1.00%,
and corn at 59%c.
The provision side of the market was full
of excitement nearly all day. The receipts
of hogs were a trifle more liberal and they
were in better condition. Liverpool reports
were less favorable and showed a reduction
of 9d in lard and lOd in bacon. The eastern
markets were easy. The weak feeling of
yesterday was continued to-day and although
there were sales reported at $18.05 for May
pork the real opening was
$17.90. Prices dropped to $17.S'2>£.
revived to $17.90, then quickly dropped to
$17.77 1rr, advanced to $17.95, declined
to$17.57, advanced to $17.80, went down to
$17.65 aud then advanced to $17.70 and
closed quite tirm at those figures. The trade
was wholly between local speculators and
the "big four" made reputed onslaughts
upon the market which were characterized as
the most reckless of any manipulations
Which have been witnessed on the board
since old Hutch took Charley Singer in hand
and read him a $20,000 lesson in about five
minutes. A good deal of stuff was thrown
over for parties whose margins were exhausted
and mauy outsiders and tailers were frozen
out. Margins were called heavily, but local
parties responded or at least settled their
trades. The whole idea of the movement
seemed to be: "Raid the market and get rid
of the crowd." It was successful in this
wise, and it also developed the fact that
a good deal of the ■ stuff was
owned by parties other than
the big packers. Some of them as suggested
in this correspondence were quietly unload
ing and crediting up good profits.
On the curb pork and ribs were steady but
lard went off 2><@5c. There was a very
weak spell and May pork closed at $17.60;
lard at $9.72)£ and ribs at $9.25.
The receipts of sheep were about the same
as last Tuesday, but so far for the week a
slight increase over this time last week. For
straight, even lots of fat wethers, either fine
or coarse wooled, the demand continues
strong and prices rule steady. Lambs are
also wanted, and to-day sold at higher prices.
Big heavy ewes in a suspicious con
dition are plenty and slow of sale.
Bucks and coarse 6tock generally are al60
slow and the thin common sorts are not
wanted. Let shippers send in good even
lots and good flesh, either coarse or fine
wooled, and they will find a ready sale, but
all common or even fair lots should be
bought this week with caution and judg
ment, as the run will be heavy and prices
rule lower. Common and mixed ruled
somewhat lower toward the close of the

New York, Feb. 19.—The market opened
without feature, except the sharp recovery
in Pullman. It was dead dull all the fore

ing was firmer with St. Paul and Lackawan

morning. Union Pacific, which is still

New York, Feb. 19.—It is learned that
the firm of McGinnis & Fearing, whose sus
pension was announced yesterday, effected
a satisfactory settlement to-day with the
Oregon & Transcontinental company, their
principal creditor, and there is now no
serious obstacle to their resumption. The
stocks belonging to the Oregon & Transcon

Fearing, lt is stated, are 1,800 shares of
Oregon Railway «fc Navigation, 1,100 shares
of Northern Pacific preferred, and 6,200
shares of Northern Pacific common, none of
which can come on the market. Total in
debtedness to the Oregon Transcontinental
company is placed at $97,000. In addition
to the $20,000 due Mr. Pullman, the firm
owes other customers about $50,000, which
fills up *he entire liabilities. The assets are
placed at $250,000 or $300,000.[,Mr. Gould is

Washington-, Feb. 19.—In the house dur
ing the early hours of the morning, there
was a scene of great confusion and excite
ment. Hiscock attempted to have the bill
read, and the Democrats objected with great
emphasis. Hiscock was standing full in
front of the speaker's desk, where he was
surrounded by an excited crowd of adherents
and opponents, and finally the disorder be
came so great that the services of the ser
geant-at-arms were required to restore some
degree of order. Tucker, approaching to
within a couple of feet of Hiscock, addressed
him directly and called him to order.
"The gent calls me to order," exclaimed
Hiscock excitedly, "because his side is uu
willlng to have advertised to the country the
bill which they attempt to force through thia
house." Hiscock, at one point
in the debate, understood Morrison
to say that seventy-live Democrat*
had been here and skulked away. He was
proceeding to make a strong point of this un
derstanding of the case, when Morrison in
terrupted to say that such an assumption was
untrue. Mutual explanations followed, and
the house again settled down into a state of
active quiet. At C o'clock a motion was
agreed to revoking all leaves of absence
granted for this legislative day. At 8:15 a
quorum was obtained, and Hewitt's motion,
making the Mexican pension biU the special
order for the 21st inst., was seconded by 105
to one, and the resolution was then adopted,

adjourned until Wednesday.
A Humorous Description of the Shoot*

"Ueah, Heah, Heah,Heah, Kill'em, Kill'em,
Washington, Feb. 19.—In tho Danville
investigation to-day W. P. Graves, (white) a
commission merchant of Danville, testified
that he was armed the day of the riot and
fired four shots into the crowd of colored peo
ple. The colored men were firing in his di
rection and he returned the fire. He did not,
however, see any pistols in the hands of the
colored men. There was no conspiracy on
the part of the whites to bring on the riot,
but on the contrary, the whites exercised
their influence to prevent the collision with
the colored men. An intercepted letter con
veyed the information that if the fighting
took place down town the women and child
ren on the borders of the town would
be murdered in their houses.
George Adams, colored, testified that after
he was subpoenaed to Washington he was ap
proached by Barksdale, Hatcher, Lea and
others, who told him he "had better know
damned little about the riot" when he went
Charles Adams, colored, testified that
Graves, (the first witness,) shot him the day
of the riot. He rolled up his sleeve and
showed the scar of his wound.
R.J. Adams, a colored policeman, said:
Two months before the riot, the grand jury
indicted the whole force and some others,
white and blaek, for carrying concealed
weapons. The colored people were poor and
could not pay fines, and the white people
were able to pay, and the outcome was, the
colored people ceased carrying arms, and
Jefferson Hubbard, colored, witnessed the
riot and thought there were 300 pistols went
off, just like a pack of squibs. The whttea
then commenced callin' "heah, heah,
heah, heah, kill em, kill em, kill em, kill em,
just like dat." He saw Captain Graves with
a long pistol, which Graves discharged at
witness, the colored people having run every
way. The whites came from every direction
with shot guns.
The other witnesses added nothing to the
information. The committee then adjourned.
San Fbancisco, Feb. 19.—It is announced
this evening on reliable authority, that the
governor has decided to call an extra session
of the legislature to take action in the mat
ter of unpaid state and county taxes from
the Central Pacific for the years 1880, 1881
and 1882, which, with interest and penalties
amount to $1,074,000. It has been establish

and that the total amount must be paid. The
proclamation will be issued in the latter
part or the first of next week.
