Chicago, April 10.—The lot of the bears
on 'change to-day was not a happy one. The
opening was strung all around, and barring
a short lull in activity wliich occurred shortly
before noon, this strength was permanent.
Wheat Bhowed the most activity aud closed
Btrongat 85%c. As statedin yesterday's
review of tbe market the situation is being
steadily improved hy an increased demand for
consumption, and there ls nothing at present
on wliich to predicate short sales, as the
stocks of leading articles are by no means ex
cessive and there is reason to think that there
isa large line of outstanding contracts for
future delivery still unprovided for, while the
property is being rapidly concentrated in tlie
bands of parties who buy for investment.
There are also abundant reasons for predict
ing light receipts of grain from the country
for some weeks to come at least, aud this
fact is likely to have a marked influence in
sustaining values. There will be no session
of the board to-morrow.
Provisions were the strongest of all, and
but for the obstinacy of the monopoly which
contracts them -would have heen unusually
active. The local demand for pork and ribs
was very heavy, inula goodshowingof outside
orders to buy indicated that the country
generally thought the list a purchase. But
pork was not for sale except iu such small
lots as had escaped the monopoly. The
strength inthe provision list Is, however,
considered by more than one packer as nere
ly temporary, and it is stated that some of
them are. nearly ready to sell out. Among
Operators noticeably interested in bulling pork
were Cudahy and Hammill & Brine, who
stood ready to buy nearly everything offered.
Corn was active at about yesterday's prices.
Wheat was active, but there was an unset
tled feeling, and values were very irregular.
Reports regarding the coming crop were
fairly satisfactory, and foreign cables, though
somewhat conflicting, showed more life, but
there uas an active demand by strong parties
for investment, though hardly as much buy
ing by good houses as was noticed yesterday.
The market was frequently depressed by the
throwing over of large, blocks by heavy op
erators, but they were quickly absorbed
by buyers who did not again put them out,
and as a result each break was followed by a
rapid advance. Opening on a basis of 85^'
@85J^c, the May option receded on free
oiieriu._c.-_ to 84%c but quickly rallied under
a brisk demand to (ill orders and liberal tak
ings by strong firms for local accouut, and
advanced to 85%c, when under strong sell
ing as above noted prices again receded to
ML,.- but immediately started up on a de
mand from shorts aud large pur
chases by parties who are going loug,
finally selling upto 85%c,closing on 'change
at85%c. There was some export inquiry,
but as a rule tiiose who held orders said the
advance had placed wheat above their limits.
Holders of orders expressed confidence that
continued tirm markets here would induce
foreign buyers to respond to the advance.
This opinion was strengthened by an Im
proved export for fiour and purchases of a
few lots at a slight advance. The trading was
pn tt ,• iarge, an.l Included the sale of a
large line of stud by a prominent house
heretofore connected with the Armour inter
est and the covering of a large line of loeal
shorts. The June option was also active and
quotable r.t 2<i'rl lZv over May, closing a
.-•7 "■;(■. July ranged "foilc over June. On
the call wheat was offered freely aud declined
?.ic, while on the curb the feeling was weak
and a further decline of %c was noted.
Corn was rather active aud sympathized
with wheat, but the llue.tuations were less
severe. The opening was weak and followed
by an early decline, but the receipts were
small, the Inspection showing only 114 cars,
60 of which were contracts. This fact in
creased the confidence of holders, who were
less disposed to sell, while the increased
anxiety of shorts to even up their trades, in
stead of leaving them open over to-morrow,
whicli is a holiday, induced them to buy more
freely towards the close, and there
were also a good many outside buying
orders on corn, coming chiclly from the
interior dealers in the corn belt of the west,
wbo think prices are low enough now. There
is not so much reckless selling as formerly.
The market seems to be working towards a
stronger and more healthy basis, and, as a
prominent dealer said to-day, is in a posi
tion to be more easily bulled. It closed on
'change at 50%c, or %c below yesterday's
close. On the call the offerings were free
and prices declined %c, while on the curb
a weaker feeling prevailed, and another %c
Speculative trading in oats was not on a
lar^e scale, aud the market was more settled,
with something ot an improvement both for
cash and future dealing. May closed on
'change at 3'2J^c, and on call at 32c, while
Jnne was }fc higher.
K}e was strong and higher, closing 3J^c
above yesterday's last price on 'change.
Trading in pork was quite active on spec
ulative account, with thc market unsettled,
nervous and very irregular, showing more
strength however at the close than and pre
vious time ofthe day, and the last quotations
were at the highest point reached on 'change.
The closiugs were also 20(iC22}4<! over the
opening prices of the morning, and 85((i(J0c
higher than the closing prices on 'change
yesterday, closing at Sa7.firstname.lastname@example.orgX for
May, and $17.S2V(gl7.S5 for June. These
prices were not beld up on the curb, however,
the May option closing at §17.50 and June at
Lard was active on speculative account,
unsettled and more than usually nervous.
As in pork tho closing was marked by more
than ordinary strength, and tfic last sales on
'change were made at the best prices of tbe
day, being 15@20c higher thau yesterday's
quotations at 1 o'clock, May closing at 8S.65
(£.8G7J<, With June 10c above May. On call
prices fell 5c all around, and on the curb
2}<Tc more was lost.
The feeling in meats was nervous in spec
ulative circles, but thero was a fair trade.
Short ribs were active both for cash and fu
ture delivery und closed 15c higher than at 1
o'clock yesterday, but onlv 10(«.12%c lower
than last curb quotations. On call the ar
ticle went up 5c, but May settled back 2>£c
on curb transactions, wbile June remained
steady at the advance.
The cattle market continues active and
prices remain steady fully as strong as any
day this week and perhaps a shade stronger.
There was a good shipping 1, export and
dressed beef demand, and butchers' stock
being rather scarce went off quick at a slight
advance. Stockers and feeders also sold
quick and at good prices. Tbe general mar
ket is 15(<i25c higher than last week.
The small receipts of hogs, with an im
proved shipping and packing demand, caused
a sharp upturn of 10@12%c on about all
grades, the market closing steady, with about
There were too many sheep on sale, and
under the heavy supply prices declined 15@
25c, and at the decline there was a fair busi
ness, but tbe market closed weak, with a large
number unsold. The great bulk on sale
were westerns, over sixty loads arriving on
Milmine, Bodman & Co.. say: "There is
no improvement in export demand that we
know of. Speculation will only hold the
market for a few days. It may be that the
other side will come after our wheat, but we
incline to the opinion that our prices are still
too high to admit of a liberal export move
ment, and this is what is needed to support
any large advance in prices. The weather is
all that could be desired for growiug the
winter wheatcrop, and all reports we get from
winter wheat sections say the crop is doing
finely, and pretty sootithis will crowd heavily
on the situation. The market is in
condition now to follow the lead of large
operators in either direction, is very
nervous and the shorts easily excited. We
anticipate a rapid market for some days to
come, and while risky to handlo on either
side it will probably be safe to sell on bulges
or buy on tbe breaks, taking J^c, profits
either way. There is no use predicting
futures on such markets as these. Many be

We haven't lost faith in corn, and believe

soon, unless all signs fail. There is no use
giving any opinion on provisions. The
market is thoroughly under the control of

their inclinations. We think outsiders had

Chicago, April 10.—The money market
to-day developed no particularly new fea
tures. Loauable funds were in fair demand
and supply at 5(<t0 per cent, on call and 6@7
per ceut. on time. All holders of strictly
gilt edge securities are accommodated. New
York exchange is in moderate supply, open
ing and ruling at 25c premium per $1,000.
Foreign exchange was quoted steady at $4.86

To-day's associated bank clearings were
§8,055,000, against §8,483,000 yesterday.

New Yokk, April 10.—The situation in
Wall street remains about the same. Up to
1 o'clock the transactions were exceedingly
light, and the changes in values unimpor
tant. Union Pacific advanced about % per
cent, and St. Paul made the same gain,
while the balance remained about stationary.
A dozen or so stocks did not afford a quota
tion even. The attraction later in the day
was a spurt in Omaha preferred to 92%.
The favorable showing in earnings,
§20,000 increase for the first week
of the present month, was the
cause of it. Northwestern for the same peri
od shows a decrease of but §1,800, which is a
ixreat improvement over the previous week.
Northern Pacific gains §145,000,and St. Paul
§27,800, Union Pacific land sales for the
past quarter amounted to §1,430,000. The
litigation between McHenry and the Erie is
reported as settled. The stock was dull and
neglected. The coal companies propose to
suspenu operations ncxi wcck. ine marKei
closed quiet and rather firm. There will be
no session of the exchange to-morrow.
nenry Clews & Co. say: "The stock and
grain markets were largely confined to clos
ing up contracts, owing to the holiday to
morrow for the observance of Good Friday;
consequently the shorts were the principal
buyers. Oregon declared a quarterly divi
vend of 1}4 per cent, being a reduction from
S to 6 per annum. The stock re
ceded 3 per cent, in consequence. A
final meeting between the Union Pa
cific and Chicago, Burlington & Quincy
roads has been called to take place on Satur
day, when au effort will be made to harmon
ize existing difficulties between them. The
market is disposed to await the action. Next
week's movements will largely depend there
on. Cotton was strong and active all day,
with confident buying. The wheat market
strengthened again in the belief that a large
proportion of the recent purchases have been
made by a few rich, experienced operators,
who firmly believe in bottom
prices having been reached for this
crop, aud anticipate an active demand from
Europe at no distant day. Wheat in St.
Louis is now 7c higher than in New York,
although the cost of transportation should
make New York at least 10c above the St.
Louis market. The stock of red winter wheat
here is about 2,000,000 bushels less than this
time last year, when it was selling 10c
higher, aud this comparatively small stock is
not likely to be increased while a legitimate
milling demand keeps western markets so
much above ours. The bears, blinded by
success, have apparently forgotten the crop
last year was a short one, and with what will
bo needed between now and harvest for con
sumption and seeding it is barely possible
this country may have after all a moderate
surplus, even if tho export demand proves
to be in tho future as in the past disappoint

Washington-, April 10.—The public build
ing combinations had things their own way
to-day iu the house, sweeping everything be
fore them ou the omnibus bill, which pro
vides for the erection of about forty public
buildings in all sections of the country at a
cost of over §0,000,000. The effort to draw
party liues ou the question failed, and when
the Democratic and Republican opponents of
a bill raised their voices against extravagance
Democrats and Republicans nevertheless
united iu a sufficient number to pass tbe
bill. After the bill to erect a
public building at Greencastle,
South Carolina had passed the committee,
and the New Albany bill had been taken up,
considerable interest was manifested at the
probable action of Mr. Holman, whose home
s in that city. Holman, however, did not
raise his voice against the appropriation of
§100,000 for his town, although taunted to do
so by the opponents of the bill. When tellers
were appointed to count the vote, Holman
without hesitatiou recorded himself in the
affirmative, and ate his leek like any com
mon congressman, getting all he could
for his dish. The scene was very sug-
Iive, and freely commented
n in the reporters' gallery,
ittsburg walked off with $1,500,000, and
ttanooga bagged a small building under
shadow of Lookout mountain at $100,000.
ue scooped in §150,000 for the summer
home of Jim. Blaine at Augusta, but
Augusta, being a state capital, deserves a
Iie building under the rule. In reply to
.tack made by Congressman Warner of
upon the committee on public buildiugs
grounds, Congressman Casey Young,
hairmau, defended the committee's ae
on the ground that the government was
paying an annual rental of §1,500,000
rablic buildings, or 3 per cent, ou
100,000, and therefore au expenditure of
I $0,000,000 was strictly in the line of econ
omy. There was a large amount of rhetoric
wasted upon ancient Rome, the Appion way,
the Coliseum, EgyptUiQ temples and pyra
mids, Paris under Napolean III, Baron
Houssman and the like, but Mr. Toung,
being eut short, asked leave to print the re
mainder of his remarks. Subsequently, in
discussing the Augusta bill, an angry scene
occurred betweeu Milliken, of Maine, and
Storm, of Pennsylvania. Storm, who op
posed the bill, arraigned Milliken severety,
when Milliken walked over and menacingly
shook his list in Storm's face.
A NICE QUESTION.
Although to-day was Thursday the house
proceedings were a continuation of Wednes
day's legislative session. When the house
adjourned it adjouraed uutii Friday without
closing Wednesday's and entering upou
Thursday's session. Friday is private bill
day, and the question arises, what has be
come of Thursday i The journal shows that
no Thursday session was held, and the house
will lip in si rlilnmmn trv.iTi_-.rr_-.Ti- ,lifr.r>..l_- _->f
extrication. If to-morrow shall be declared
Thursday's session, Friday is left out in the
cold aud private bill day goes over to Satur
day, which will iu effect be Friday. What
will be done with Saturday is a problem.
QUIET IX THE SENATE.
The senate was nearly empty all day, and
little progress was made on the naval ap
propriation bill. Senator Beck and Mc-
Pherson were severe in their denunciation of
extravagance under Robeson's and Chan
dler's administrations. Having adjourned
over until Monday, quite a number of sena
tors left to-night for New York to spend
THE PENNSYLVANIA PLATFORM.
The New York Herald to-day, commenting
on the platform of the Pennsylvania Demo
cratic convention, favoring a tariff for reve
nue limited to the necessities of the govern
ment, economically administrated and ad
justed so as to prevent unequal burdens,
encourage productive home inductries, afford
just compensation to labor without creating or
fostering monopolies, to the end that inter
nal taxes maybe abolished and existing tariff
duties adjusted consistently with such prin
ciples, says: "As a broad and liberal call
this quite surpasses any effort recently come
to our notice. The man who could not climb
into a car under at least one of these phrases
must be bard to suit. In fact this tariff
plank is almost exactly what we believe the
Republicans will frame. So far as we can
see, the Republicans of the country
can give support to Mr. Randall without
doing violence to recognized principles of
Republicanism. The Democratic party has
an opportunity of winning a splendid victory
on the tariff question, but if it accepts Ran
dall's position it must disgust its best friends
and become the laughing stock of its ene
MCDONALD AND BATAKD.
Speaking of Senator McDonald's candidacy
for president, the New York Sun says to-day:
■•.Moooay neea give mmseii any concern on
that score, but even if tbe free traders carry
the day in the Chicago convention, Thomas
Bayard is much more likely to be the nomi
nee than McDonald. At present Mr. Bay
ard may be described as the most striking
upholder of free trade as
a question of principle before the public. As
we understood his recent speech before the
young men's Democratic club in Brooklyn
he has defined protection as "legalized com
TILDEN'S TIEAtTII GOOD.
Tlie Evening Star publishes the following
contradictory interviews with Tilden: In a
private letter received from a prominent
southern Democrat, who expects to be dele
gate to the National Democratic convention,
the writer says that the day he had an hour's
confidential talk with Tilden he
called upon Tilden to urge him to
consent to bis nomination for the presidency
and assured him of a cordial and
almost unanimous support from the south.
The writer gives it as a conviction, based
upon tho conversation referred to, that Mr.
Tilden "will not accept the nomination un
any consideration." A Democratic senator
who recently visited Mr. Tilden in New
York said to-day: "I assure you candidly
Mr. Tilden's health is as good as yours or
mine. He has never suffered any general
attack of paralysis, Ills left arm is partially
paralyzed and some of the organs of his
throat also. The lattei affects his voice, but
Tilden's general health is good." This sen

and at the proper time will assert his nomin

Seymour has been commissioned postmaster
at Vanderbilt, Dak.
HE LISTENS TO NO OVERTURES.
Mr. Morrison will stick to his purpose an
nounced in the house a day or two ago, and
will call up the tariff bill on Tuesday
next. Should the house refuse to consider
it, he will make the motion —a privileged
one—every day until it is called up. It may
not be known that every effort has been
made to compromise the differences between
the extreme tariff reformers aud the mild

Morrison has been absolutely bull-headed.
At a meeting of the men of less extreme
views than Mr. Morrison, Mr. Eatoh of Con
necticut, was chosen to see Morrison and if
possible harmonize the differences. Eaton
believes in a reform of the tariff, but will
not vote for the Morrison bill. He called
upon Mr. Morrison, and said: "I am in
favor of tariff reform, Mr. Morrison, but
I cauuot support your bill because it does
not reform. I am authorized in
behalf of a number of gentlemen who seek
harmony to say to you that they are ready to
iix up a tariff bill which can be passed. I
know their view"s. I am ready, if you are, to
prepare a bill with you. We will call on one
or two experts aud you and we will draw a
bill that I know can be passed. I
will not let it be known to a liv
ing soul that I had anything to do with
the bill aud you can take the credit of it.
What I want is to get the Democracy
united on a fair bill." After Eaton had
made the proposition Morrison waxed wroth.
"I decline the proposition," he said indig
nantly, "I have already reported a tariff bill
and, by , I am going to staud or
fall with it."
SOME NEW TORK SECRETS.
The president is growing fretful over the
situation iu New York. He finds that men
he has been treating kindly are inimical to
his nomination and are hard at
work setting up tho pins for Blaine.
The leader of the Blaine movement
is Collector Robertson, of the port of New-
York. I betray no confidence right here in
letting out a few secrets touching the afore
said Robertson. It will be remembered that
Robertson was a delegate at the Chicago
convention of 1880, from New York. He
ed the revolt against Grant iu defiance of
the instructions of his state. Subsequenlv,
after Garfield was elected president, Blaine
prevailed upon Lim to appoint Robertson as
New York's collector. This led to a row aud to
Conkling and Pktt's retirement from public
life. After the death of President Garfield
and a few months after President
Arthur had taken hold the presi
dent sent for Rob'-.tson. Ze told bim that
his holding the oliice of collector had estrang
ed from him some of his best friends, whose
friendship he did not care to
forego. Then and there the
president plumply said that if he (Robertson)
would resign as collector, he would appoint
bim to a foreign mission, or if that did not
suit him, would use his influence to secure
for Robertson the nomination of governor
of New York. Upon the presentation of thi
proposition, Robertson was at first inclined
to accept. However, he gave no definite an
swer, and returned to New York. The day
after his arrival iu New York, which was the
3d day after his conference with
Arthur, he called together some
of his most trusted frieuds among
them Gen. Dan. Sickles. To these he related
the president's proposition, and asked:
"What am I to do?" "What do you think
you ought to do?" asked one. "Well, can
didly, gentlemen, I am inclined to relieve
the president from his embarrassment. I
thiuk I will resign." "Not a bit of it," said
another. "You stay where you are. Let tbc
president turn you out, but you will neither
resign nor accept his offer." After reflec
tion Robertson accepted the ad
vice of his friends aud re
fused to resign. The president did
not have the courage to turn him out. The
result is that Robertson is now au active
agent in securing for Blaine the delegates
from New York, and because of the presi
dent's failure to remove Robertson, neither
Grant nor Conkling have been in the White
house for years. It ought to be added, how
ever, that after Robertson refused to resign,
the president kept his office under close
espionage and made but few appointments,
which were recommended by the collector.
Havana, April 10.—The latest advices
from Hayti state that on March 20 the Italian
transport, Comte De Cavour, arrive'd at
Port au Prince to seek satisfaction for the
taking from the Italian bark at Petit Goave,
two insurgents and shooting thein. The
American minister has demanded of the
Ilaytiau government the payment of S-100,
000 indemnity for American losses on ac
couut of the riots iu September last, and sur
render t>f the Mole St. Nicholas as a guaran
tee that the money be paid. The German
claims amount to §500,000, the French claims
equal that sum, and thc Euglish claims
£250,000. The number of persons killed
during the revolution is officially announced
to have been 7,000. The disappearance of
persons implicated in the revolution is caus
ing considerable commotion. At Cape Hayti
a collision occurred between refugees inside
the British consulate and the guards around

Its demolition was ouly prevented by the
timely arrival of the consul. The Haytian
government has put into circulation the

Charleston, W. Va., April 10.—Some
years ago a man by the name of Prentice
purchased a large tract of land in Logan
county of this state. Litigation began, and
the suit found its way into the United States
district court here recently. Judge Jackson
ordered a survey of the land, and A. P. Sen
nett was appointed surveyor by the court,
and he, with his two sous, started to Logan
county to do the work. Yesterday, while
within fifteen miles of Griffithsville, the sur-
veyors were met by a number of squatters on
the land and fired into. Wm. Sennett was
shot in the right side, the bullet running to
ward the kidneys. The wounded man will
be brought home to this city to-day. He is
in a dangerous condition.
