["Special Tele [ram to the Globe!
Chicago, niinois, April 25. —The
markets were nervous and irregu
lar to-day, and prices generally for all
articles for future delivery ruled higher,
h the fluctuations were rapid and
Wheat was the leading commodity
as !:.r as the volume of trading was concern
ed, although the appreciation in other articles
was more in proportion. It was noticeable,
however, thai other grain advanced or de
clined as il went up or down. While the
outside prices were nol sustained, the posi
tion of wheal appears strong, andthe indica
tions are that it is largely concentrated in
the hands of operators who arc rated alike
for their skilful management and financial
strength. Thereis a growing belief that the
property possessi s intrinsic value at current
Corn, while sympathizing with wheat, dc
vi loped more individuality titan on any pre
ceding day this week, and there is an
Impression thai the market was oversold.
Provisions were strong, and materially
higher figures were secured for pork, lard,
ami .-hurt ribs, bul there was really no in
trinsic support to prices, the advance being
due to the manipulation of the provision
clique, who took advantage of the advance
in grain to pui up speculative articles <>f hog
pruduets, aud after a few short- had been
filled, a weak feeling developed and most of
the advance was 1" t.
Wheat opened a< tivc and firm in response
to better New York and Liverpool advices,
and early sales in the former market showed
an advance of 3@3}^c over yesterday's
close early in the day, and later was ii.- high
er, while .--pot and futures were quoted high
er. The Euglish markets at Liverpool
Bhowed an appreciation of (id per quarter on
floating cargoes. The marked advance late
yesterday also brought out large lines of
buj in.: orders for small lots from the interior
for account of Paris, which was anxious to
gel on the long side. .May shorts in New
York and other cities had ordered their
brokers to cover, and the eagerness to buy
early caused a strong opening, the first sales
being at '.<4c for June, or '■ ,vi ;,'e over yester
day's close, hut the advance brought heavy
BcHiuir by lartT" and small holders, all of
whom were anxious to take their profits on
purchases made at lower prices, and under
the pressure to realize, quotations rapidly
descended to 93c,,-when the offerings became
small, while the demand Mas good, and
values steadily moved up to '.i I\ c, which
brought fresh lines of long wheat out, and a
settlement to the lowest price followed, but
the close on 'change was 93jj ■■ v:;: ,c.
There were strong signs that many of the
large bulls were unloading, with a view to
buying hack at lower prices, but in this they
were not successful, as many who were
previously bears turned bulls and bought
freely and the offerings were freely taken.
The only weakening influences were fine
weather, good crop reports, and the absence
of shipping demand at anything near cur
rent figures, although many think that a
maintenance of strong markets here will
soon bring consuming points to correspond
ing rates. <)n the call Ream and other
longs were heavy sellers, and it. is stated that
the strength of the money market is due to
their efforts to hold that market up in order
to unload here. Wheat was unsettled, May
and June advanced •'',:'Vc, while July
declined ' t 'c. under heavy offerings. On the
curb .May wheat declined to Die. and June
to 92% c, from which point it rallied and
closed at 93c.
A well known operator said this evening:
"The situation to-night is rather interesting.
There are two large lines of long stuff in the
market that apparently remain intact, and
the country is also largely long. The princi
pals of one of these lines are working both
New York and Chicago and seem to have
them under control. The balance of our
local bulls have unloaded, and generally
having sold out under the present market,
are now engaged in fighting a further ad
vance. They sold short stuff on the call to
work a weakness, and are all playing it on
that basis to get in again. If the market re-
Bists their efforts they will come in as large
buyers and again start the market upward."
Corn was fairly active and linn in response
to wheat, and additional strength was gained
by the small receipts, only CO cars being in
spected, of which 13 were contract grades.
There were also rumors ofl"Rn increased ship
ping movement of No. 2 to fill May contracts.
The shorts showed increased anxiety to cover
and there was a good demand from other
sources, but trading was mainly during the
early portion of the session. Prices opened
;V( < 1..c higher at 56Xc for July, sold up to
; ■'. c. receded on free offerings to 56^c and
closed at 56XC- **f;!.r ranged from 53}i@
543<c, and closed at ~>'A ].:c bid. and June
ranged I}4@l%C above May. The shipping
demand for low grades was good and the
Oats were more active for future delivery,
to which trading in the regular market was
confined. The improvement in wheat and
corn exerted a firm feeling and the chief ac
tivity prevailed early in the session, prices
advancing }4@%e. over yesterday's last sales,
but weakened after the early buying orders
were filled and the appreciation was nearly
all lost. June opened at 38#c, sold at 3-lc
and closed at 33%@33%c.
Provisions exhibited more life, and an in
creased speculative business was reported.
The offerings were only moderately large and
the demand was active both on local and out
lide account. The market was unsettled and
prices fluctuated considerably.
The receipts of hogs were quite liberal, but
the market was active at a further improve
ment in prices, which exerted some influence
on the course of the market for the product.
The better feeling in the grain market also
lent some assistance to sustaining prices.
Foreign advices indicated a weaker feeling
in that quarter for all articles except lard aud
the shipping demand was moderate, being
checked to some extent by the sharp upturn
in prices and the difference between buyers
In pork, trading was quite active in the
June and Jul y futures, prices ruled irregu
lar. offerings were quite free and the de
mand was good, especially from shorts. The
market opened stronger and 10@1^C higher,
but quickly settled back 10c. Later a strong
feeling prevailed, and prices rallied 25@30c,
but receded 13@20c, closing comparatively
teady at $firstname.lastname@example.org>£ for Jane and 12^c
higher for July.
Trading was also active in lard for specu
lative futures, and prices fluctuated consid
erably. Offerings were materially larger,
and the inquiry, especially from the ports,
was rather urgent, which caused a strong
opening and prices advanced 30(?£32><c per
100 pounds, but later the market ruled eas
ier, and prices settled back again 12J^@15c.
May ranged from $8.50(3)8.72%, and closed
at $email@example.com%, while June opened at $8.60
and after an advance to $8.77% closed at
$firstname.lastname@example.org. July ranged 10c above June.
The feeling in short ribs was stronger, and
prices advanced lo@2oc early, but receded
again 10@15c, and closed steady at $8.45 for
May, $email@example.com for June.and firstname.lastname@example.org%
The market on fat cattle ruled dull and
dragging during the forenoon and was gen
erally rated 10@15c lower on about all
grades of shipping and dress beef stocks,
with indications of ft still further decline.
Butchers' stock remains about the same, ex
cept perhaps a certain grade of liirht steers,
and they are lower. Stackers aud feeders
ruled dull, the supply was large and has
gradually accumulated, while prices are
quoted 20@30c lower than the top last week.
Prici - have ruled .so high on this class of
cattle that many countrymen have returned
The hog market again ruled active with an
advani f s@loc, packers, shippers and
speculators buying. The down town board
of trade markets were higher, aud the gen
eral feeling was of a bullish nature for the
The sheep market was fairly active and
prices ruled just about steady.
McCormick, Kennett & Day say: "We
are believers in high prices on the old crops,
and advise buying on any marked decline.
Although corn is above the export basis, the
consumptive demand at home is good, and
we believe the quantity to come forward
from the country very limited. A little
break would not surprise us, but we think
well of the long futures on soft spots."
Crosby & Co. say: "We recognize the
rapidity of the present bulge, and it seems
time to call a halt, but the trading is im
mense. The preponderance of strength is
on the long side, and the bulls have' good
leaders, all of which we think will i^ive it
Milmine, Bodman & Co. say: "Many
large operators are hesitating now, and are
about ready, we think, to attack the market
from the tiear side again, and we .shall need
good outside support to sustain present
values. The advance has been too rapid, we
fear, to last. Shorts are well out of the way,
and we think many weak parties are loaded,
and who will have to dump their stufl on a
very slight decline. We think it begins to
show signs of weakness and looks toppy. If
tie- seaboard markets should give way prices
would likely decline quickly, and as they
have gone up, we do not advise purchases
now, and think the sab r plan is to sell on
the bulge, There is no material improve
ment in export demand, but the home de
mand, we think, is increasing all the time,
and at the same time crop reports from the
winter wheat sections are conflicting, A
good deal will depend now on how far the
markets abroad will respond to the advance

T. 11. Wood & Co., of Minneapolis, in
their circular to-night, say:
Duriuir. the past month our Mr. S. II Wood
has been quietly investigating the condition
of the market with a view to ascertaining the
cause of the market's wild fluctuations, and
on Saturday evening he received not only
the last proof of his suspicion,but also a con
fidential invitation from the leaders to join
in running a corner in a certain article on
the Chicago market, the deal to be closed
within sixty days, the profits to be divided
proportionately. The article to be invested
in has actual merit in itself—the parties un
dertaking the deal are strong, aud there
seems to be no doubt bnt that the corner can
lie safely run, but will also pay a very large
profit to those who invest. While Mr. Wood
is held to strict secresy in the matter, we
will at the same time extend to our custom
ers, old or new, the invitation to join with
us, either as a body or separately,as in union
there is always strength. Should you desire
to join us please advise us as early as possi
ble how much you wish to put in, and
whether you wish to join with others or in

Cinc.Vfio, April 25.—The leading banks re
port a fairly active demand for loanable
funds, which are held in sufficiently large
supply for legitimate business requirements.
Desirable call loans are made at 5@6 per

New York, April 25.—The bears scored
another success to-day, the chief point of
attack being tbe coal stocks. They were in
a state of seini-pauic. During the early hours
Jersey Central fell from 82J£ to 77, and
Reading from 45 to 41J£. Free selling of
long stocks continued throughout the- morn
ing. A few of the dividend payers managed
to stand up under the excitement, but the
majority wilted. The pool on Union Pacific
seemed to bold it at about 67. The feeling
was very feverish when the coal stc>cks broke,
and tbe rally which occurred about 2 o'clock
was fortunate for all concerned. In the last
hour tbe market became much
steadier. Union Pacific rose to
68X) anc*- there was a fractional
improvement all along the line. The change
for the better was occasioned more by the
covering of the shorts than through any
prominent buying for long account. The
demoralization is so complete that few have
the hardihood to predict that bottom has
been reached as yet. After all the excite
ment, with the exception of the coalers,
prices closed a trifle better than onlasteven.
in<r. Northern Pacific earnings for the third
week in April increased $197,000.
A. M. Day says: "The market to-day has
been largely Reading and Jersey Central.
During tbe first hour there was little feature
save the great feverishness. After this a de
termined effort was mado to break Reading,
and before the noon hour a pretty large
break was made. Jersey followed close after,
the former reaching 41}^ and the latter 77."
A Philadelphia special dispatch says:
"Reading has been sold here to-day on a
statement that parties who have loaned
money on 50,000 shares of Jersey Central
stock held for account of the Reading rail-,,

way will call up a margin If Jersey Central
is quoted at 80."
This report was denied, and it is said Read
ing will fully protect Jersey. Both stocks
rallied sharply before the close. About Ip.
m. the Trunk line managers were reported
as having agreed upon a fair percentage.
This was rollowed by better prices. Lacka
wana looked very weak at different times
during the day, as if it might be the next
card in the general liquidation. The mar
ket had a tired look after its lean drubbing,
rallying in the last hour, and closing firm,
especially Union Pacific.
fWestern Associated Press. |
The New York Journal of Commerce report
of the pioduce market Friday contains the
following: "Wheat opened with unusua
excitemcnt End remarkable buoyancy. The
price was hardly regarded in the anxiety to
buy and heavy upward movement took place.
One or two parties were the main buyers and
at a certain price,which represented the mar
ket at ©ne time, one party was taking all
offered. The early market was up '^i^iy^a
on May and June, 2c on July, and
lXc on August Afterward there
was a break of l°-iVa2c. rallying
again to the highest, but dropped toward the
close 3-^(«%<:, closing irregular. There was
some talk of trouble in meeting margins on
the part of one or two of the smaller oper
ator-, which had little influence. While
some partir., have faith in the stability of the
market, yet as a rule the disposition is to
take in the profits. Shorts are very nervous,
aud tfiey hurry in to (.'over when large buy
ers take hold. Spot lots of winter is up 2<g
3c, which keeps exporters out, therefore
there is a quiet feeling. Spring grades are
1 ">£@2c higher and scarce, with a moderate
demand. The transactions were 140,100
bushels for prompt and early deliveries, and
9,608,000 bushels of options'."
A VETERAN SCALPER
Gives Away the Grain Deal to a Globe
Man Visiting the Chicago Call
The Big Four, The Banks and the Rail

[Special Telegram to the Globe.|
Chicago, April 25.—"The situation is just
this:. We' ye lost our outside business and the
market to-day is under the Influence of about
twenty men, all local members of the board
of trade." The speaker was a veteran mem
ber of the board of trade and a man who has
helped to manipulate more corners in Chica
go in the past twenty-five years than almost
any other one individual. His conversation
was addressed to a visiting Globe corres
pondent in the call board yesterday, aud he
"As I was saying, we've lost our outside bus
(ness; these men I speak of are heavy cap
italists. They get together at night and they
say, we will put the market so-and-so to
morrow, aud they do it. If they draw out
side speculation good enough, if not they
dodge and skin the local operator. Why,
look at last week's shipment of wheat from
Chicago! At the same ratio it will take five
months to get clear of the stock ou hand, to
say nothing of the receipts. We have in store
here now of wheat and Hour au amount equal
to last year's exports, aud still they don't take
our wheat and no man outside of Chicago dare
use his money on this market, if he knew
any thintr about the deal —that is on present
values or on what he heretofore eousidered
as sale property. They know it isn't safe to
scalp ou a set up deal. The fact is that the
board froze out the bucket shops and board
members are now employed in exactly the
same business. It is a skin game through
out. Last week the gang had out a big Hue
and becoming scared they undertook to
cover. Hence the bulge."
"Who is at the bottom of it?"
"Well, I will tell you; but don't use my
name in any connection. At the bottom of
the deal or behind it are Charley Singer,
Nat Jones, N. B. Beam aud Jack Cudahy.
These men constitute the big four in the
background. Now the ostensible parties
who do the buying are Hutchinson, Phil.
Armour and Sid Kent. They work the deals.
This crowd control the stock in store aud the
crops. Now back of those is a mightier in
fluence. The banks are carrying the
property for just the charges. They can
only loan money at five per cent, on ordi
nary securities, but on a scalp corner they
realize from twenty to twenty-live per cent.
Then conies another lever, which
but few are aware of. Mind
you, three factors, the gang, the
banks and the railroads are together. Look
at the latter! They own this property, and
why? I will tell you. No locomotive can
hanl one hundred pounds of wheat or corn
to New York for twelve and oue-half cents
on a legitimate basis, without losing money.
It is the tonnage interest that is doing the
business, and the railroads must own the
property before they will haul it to the sea
board at such rates. Look at the reverse.
The western roads get from twenty to twen
ty-live cents per hundred pounds for hauling
from Missouri river points to Chicago. You
cau see, then, how the railroads, the banks
aud the clique work the deal together. For
tunately, the producers this year are safe.
They have sold their wheat as a rule, and are
out of the market. It was railroad money
that broke the market for the reason that to
carry wheat to tbe seaboard they were compell
ed to own the property.
A Remarkable Prize Fight.
Pittsbl'kg, April 25.—One of the most re
markable prize tights that ever occurred in
this city or vicinity, took place last night at
Arsenal park, between Bilson Jack and Jack
Clifford, for $100 a side. Previous to the
battle a ball bad been iv progress, in which
over thirty young girls and several mothers,
with infants in their arms were participants.
When time was calledtfat 10:30, the women
as well as the men crowded around the ring,
aud during the fight, the former were the
most cnthusiatic shouters for their respective
favorites. The fight was with soft gloves to
a finish, London prize ring rules. From the
start, Clifford, who displayed the most
science, had the best of it, and soon had the
battle well in hand. Bilson Jack fought
savagely, however, and refused to give up
until the 121 st round, when his friends in
terfered and the mill was awarded to Clifford.
Both men were terribly punished. Bilson
Jack had to be carried from the ring. A
number of policemen watched the fight to a
close without interfering. The battle lasted
an hour and forty minutes.
Robbery and STnrder.
Ixpianapolis, Ind., April 25.—At one
o'clock this morning two men robbed the
house of Wm. Wayne, a farmer, residing
near Berne, Adams county, securing a smal[
sum of money. The men went then to the
house of Amos Brackstross, three-fourths of
a mile from Wayne's, and forced an en
trance. The noise awakened Brackstross,
and as he rose in bed he was shot through
the heart. The house was robbed of $73.
Two men suspected of the crime were arrest
ed near Geneva and lodged in jail at Bluff
ton, Wells couuty. There is great excite
ment and threats of lynching are reported.
