financial Operations in the Monetary
Centers— General Quo
. Cj_eAco, Feb. 7.— The wheat market
showed weakness at the opening this morn
lug, but as the session advanced there was a
belter feeling. The price during the fo.e
noon held close around $1, but after lo';
clock there was quite a good buying feeling
developed, aud the price of May advanced
l%c over the lowest point of the raornii g
and 3fec over the close last night. There was
no mportant news and little outside trade
The report reg arcing heavy sales of flour
at Minneapolis was the best piece of bull
news, The strength in wheat increased to
wad rthe close. The price of May advanced
10 $1.01 %_ 102 and closed at $1.01%, or
Hie over last night, and 3'Ac over the bot
tom this morning. The removal of all re
striction from milling had a good influence.
Receipts ot corn this morning were 3<>o cars.
The talk about auy let-up in the close in
spection was exploded when only 2 cars out
of the entire receipts graded No. 2. There
were 112 ears billed through! There was
out inspection ot 50.000 bu, No. 2 and ship
ments here of 101.000 t>u. Clearances at
Atlantic ports were unusually light. There
was in the pit a further liquidation by local
operators and prices declined about _c from
the close hist night There was a flurry in
oats shortly before the close. The deal was
in May. Shaw A Baldwin sold v- r.
freely, and the prices went off from 27% c
cents early to 20% c. Wadhams was the
principal buyer on the break. Receipts, 150
cars. Ou account of large receipts of ho^s
and lower prices the provision market started
slow and weak. Short ribs and lard opened
7_@loc lower, and mess pork, after opening
12V*c under last night at the lowest point
heretofore touched for May this season,
$11.45. suffered a further decline to 1.40,
the bottom for the day. There was one or
two bulges to $11.471,2, but the market was
heavy and without good support. Ten min
utes before the close May was at511.47'2, or
10 cents under last night. This was on bet
ter buying by packers on the floor and at the
yards late in the day. Short ribs, after sell
ing at $6.10 for May, rallied to $6.15. and
lard reacted from $6.9!) to $6.97%. There is
still some talk of 4c hogs and $9 pork.
THE HOUTIXE KEPORT.
Chicago. Feb. 7.— Operators in wheat were
again treated to a surprise to-day. The early
market was weak and onening sales %c low
er, as compared with yesterday's closing.
This, however, proved to be the lowest price
of the day, and was followed by an advance
of _-%4C. receded some and closed Hie higher
than yesterday. The firmness was attributed
to very good buying on the part ot some
local traders, and as there was not much
wheat offered at times it was a-compara
tively easy matter with the assistance of
"shorts'' covering to advance prices stimu
lated by some "bull"' news. Some bad crop
news was received from ih: winter wheat
districts, but were not continued, and a dis
patch was received denying that the crop
news could not have been bad when markets
nearer the winter wheat region than Cnicago
advanced only 1,2 c. Corn was more active,
more interest being manifested in
the market than for some days past.
The market opened a trifle lower
than the closing price of yesterday, and
gradually sold off 1/2 C. reacted a trifle, but
closed %@tic lower than yesterday. In the
early trading, oats were active, but weak,
and 'later the market became dull. Trading
was confined almost exclusively to May,
whicn declined %<_V2C. and closed easy.
Considerable interest was manifested in
mess pork early in the day and trading was
quite active. Opening sales were made at
10®12i,'2C decline, and 0 rally of 2_®sc was
gained temporarily. Later the market weak
ened and prices receded lO@l2i2C, but
quicKly recovered again. Toward the close
prices settled back to medium figures, and
closed steady at medium figures. A fair
trade was reported in lard and the feeling
was easier; prices ruled %@loc lower and
the market closed steady. Short ribs were
more active ai d easier. Opening sales were
madeats@7_c decline, and a further re
duction of 212 c was submitted to. Later
prices rallied _®3c, and the market closed

dence of its broadening tendency today, and
except for a fractional set-back continued
strong all the way out. closing at the best
figures. There: was renewed buying at the
list by commission people and the purchases
more" than usual of late extended largely to
the speculative stocks and prospective divi
dend payers, while the usual leaders of the
speculation were comparatively quiet. The
Northern Pacific group came into prominent
prominence and slowly worked up without
any marked movement, while the grangers
were quieter than for some time while their
prices were well.held. As usual of late all
the marked advances were in the low-priced
shares and inactive stocks led by Pullman,
which rapidly mounted, crossing 200 and
showing at the best figure a- gain of over 6
per cent. Other marked advances were
made in Lake Erie & Western, Dever. Texas
_ Fort Worth, Oregon Navigation and Chi
cago _ East Illinois. The Vanderbilts, with
the exception of C. C. C. A 1., were quiet
aud without feature, but the last named
stock, after a slight upward movement, was
raided down 3 per cent, although the Joss
was very nearly regained at the close. This
attacK had the cfl'eet of inducing realizations
all over the list, aud the bouyant tone which
had been developed in the early dealing was
suddenly checked and the majority ot the
list retired to something below the opening
figures. The bulls asserted themselves
quickly, however, and the upward move
ment was soon resumed, and throughout the
rest of the day there was 110 set-back of im
portance. London was a buyer again to a
moderate extent, and the selling by outside
parties was not so marked as it has been dur
ing the past week. Opening prices were
generally from VsS'.i per cent above those of
last evening, and further fractional gains
were established in the early trading, but the
attack upou C. C. C. & I. checked the upward
movement and everything retired. Com
parative dullness followed the decline, but
the strong tone quickly reappeared and
the Northern Pacific coming to tne
front, the losses in most of the list were re
gained before noon. Atchison and Lake
Erie A Western developed weakness in the
afternoon, but later there was a recovery and
Pullman look the lead. There was no fur
ther change ill the temper of the market and
the advauce continued without special feat
ure until the close." which was active and
strong at the best prices of the day. Ihe
total day's business was 361.025 shiM«»i and
Reading contributed 40,240. The final
changes are almost invariably in the direc
tion of higher prices, and Pullman rose '■>%*,
Lake Erie & Western preferred 2*4. New

There was more activity in the cash demand
for wheat, due partly to some buying to go
out, some lots being taken even to go West a
hundred miles or so in this state.
Oilier lots were taken to go South, aud wheat
was bought to go to Pennsylvania for mixing
with winter wheat, tor flour to local trade
there. Such demand started a stronger feel
ing with regard to future, as the cash sales
were relatively above futures resulting in a
gain of near 2c before 1 o'clock. The wheat
market was easy at the opening at about
$1.04 iU@1. 05 and advanced to $1.05%, set
tling back a trifle und then advancing steadily
to $1.06%. During the early part of the ses
sion business was not especially brisk but
picked up later. The movement was very
small terminal markets and in the country,
elevator men reported the movement no bet
ter. There were no reports ot heavy exports
of flour at New York contracted for. stirring
up shorts to covering. ' ~3598-S£4£_3S-
In the latter pail of the session the market j
was quite firm closing at the top. : J

Holders of samples of samples were asking
higher prices for 'milling wheal on the theo
ry that a rise in speculative markets should j
bring up cash wheat also. Buyers, however,
refused to take hold, aud the same ,, tactics |
were employed as on previous \ days. A few ■
cars were sold at advances ranging up to : a i
cent over yesterday's figures, but the bulk of j
the stuff remained, unsold, or some -of the !
sellers were inclined to accept lower prices.
Receipts for the day were only ,57 ears and
41 were shipped out. . Duluth reported -27
ears on track. The demand for cash wheat
improved Inter on buying by several outside
millers, and as a whole the day was the \ best
one 01 the week. ; Car lot sales by sample: 8;

Flour— following mills were running
to-day: Pillsbury A and B, Phoenix, An
chor, Washburn B, and C, Galaxy, Pettit
Crown Roller and Cataract. _M*_
The added daily capacity of the 10 mills'
grinding amounts to 20,000 bbls. but the out :
put for to-day will probably not exceed 15,
--000. The state of the market was not
changed in any way excepting that the
movement was perhaps lighter to-day due to
Weaker grain markets yesterday. Though
while some millers had smaller orders others
had rather more, maintaining a pretty even
current of trade. The very ; low bids from
across the Atlantic gave no encouragement
from that quarter. They were at about 2<is
for bakers' with patents too low to talk
apout. Local mills will not be able to aver
age more than about current output of flour
for the rest of the crop year as the wheat

The contemplated repeal of the live stock
inspection act by the Dakota legislature is
exciting much comment among shippers,
who regard it with disfavor, as it is really
the only protection against the shipment of
diseased stock, and such repeal would give
every opportunity to unscrupulous men, who
are "always ready for such opportunities.
When it is considered that about 100,000
head of horses, cattle, hogs and sheep pass
through the Minnesota Transfer, west bound,
during the season, it will readily be seen that
it is a matter of great importance and should
be acted on cautiously.

As the method of examination in the
High School is somewhat different from
that in the district schools, it is not pos
sible to give the exact number pro
moted, although the whole school was
examined. , -■■ ■
The whole number of pupils admitted
to the day schools during tne first term
of the present school year was 11,813;
the number admitted in January was
311, making a total of 12,124 during the
year, an increase of 970 over the num
ber admitted for the corresponding time
of last year. -■-
The following is the report of the
evening schools, with the whole num
ber admitted to them since October, the
number enrolled in January and the
average daily attendance:

On account of diminished attendance,
two rooms have been closed in the
Franklin, one in the Van Buren, one in
the Jackson, and one in the Gorman.
The whole number of pupils admitted
to these schools since the commence
ment of the same in October is 2,064.
The whole number admitted to these
schools for the corresponding time of
the last year was 1,776.
The gain in the number of pupils in
these schools -over the uuniber enrolled
for the same time of last year is 288.
The whole number of pupils admitted
to the public schools of this city, both
day and evening, during the first five
months of the present school year, is
14,188, or an increase of 1,258 over the
number admitted for the corresponding
time of last year.
The entire number of pupils admitted
to the schools during the last school
year was 14,460, but 272 more than the
number admitted during the first half
of the present year. I fear that it . will
be almost impossible to accommodate
in several of the school buildings of this
city the number that will apply for ad
mission to the same at the opening of
In some of the school buildings it
may be possible to crowd up the higher
grades, so as to give more . room for the
lower grades, but this cannot be done
in many buildings. The need of the
present time, and which will be greater
at the opening of the schools next Sep
tember, is for more and better facilities
for educating the children in this city.
The monthly, report of the Superin
tendent of . German" for the month of
January shows that the number of pu
pils admitted to the classes in German
in the different schools for five months
was 2,686, an increase of 433 over the
number admitted to the classes in Ger
man for the corresponding time of last
year. The: number of pupils in the
classes :in German for. January was
2,364, an increase of 174 over last year.
The written examination of the dif
ferent classes and grades in the public
schools was held during the third week
in January/ The questions for this 'ex
amination were prepared in the Super
intendent's office. -The ; results ;of r the
examination were quite satisfactory as
a whole. Failures were expected, and
failures there 7. were, but perhaps no
more than there should have been.
7Of the 5,105 pupils examined, 4,222
passed. This shows a very fair percent
age.of successful pupils, and also re
flects credit on the ■ work of the teach
ers of our schools.
The number of pupils in the A class
of the eighth grade: examined for the
High school was 146; the number that
passed was 122.
There were transferred to the Manual
Training school, - from the district
school*, thirty pupils, which makes the
enrollment in that school about sixty;
as many as can be well accommodated,
and make the school as beneficial to its
pupils as desirable.
During the past month two new
school buildings— the Humboldt and
the Longfellow— have been opened for
school purposes. These buildings, in
their construction; appearance and ac
commodations for the convenience and
healthful comfort of teachers and pu
pils, reflect great credit on the Board
of Education, not only on account of its
manifest desire that our new school
buildings be well arranged, but also
that they be so constructed that the
health of neither teachers nor pupils
shall suffer. With such buildings, the
work of the school can be better carried
on, and more successfully accomplished.
Before closing this report I wish to
mention a matter in connection with our
system of public schools to which I
desire to call the attention of your
honorable body, and that is the desire
that is prevalent with the teachers and
principals of our schools that the pres
ent system of written examinations lie
suspended, at least for. this year, and
another method for promotion be intro
duced, and, if found successful, be
adopted. We have had in connection
with our schools a. system of written
examinations, upon which the promo
tion of pupils from class to class and
grade to grade was established. In my
last annual report to this body I briefly
discussed the advisability of a change
from the system in use to some other
system more flexible and advantageous
to school children.
A plan and a system for the promo
tion of pupils in the district schools of
this city has been formulated and pre
sented to you this evening for your in
spection and consideration. The mat
ter of the same has been fully discussed
in the principals' meetings, both last
year and during the present, and the
plan prepared unanimously accepted by
the principals. There may features
about tills plan which, after its trial,
may be deemed wise to eliminate or
change, but I earnestly desire that
either the plan as it is, or modified as
may seem wise, be adopted, so that the
use" of the same may begin the first of

tains to change in examinations referred
to Committee on Schools for examina
tion and report at next meeting.
From the Committee on Fuel and Jani
St. Paul, Minn., Feb. 4, 1889.
To the Board of Education.
Your Committee on Fuel and Jani
tors, to which was referred the matter
relating to the janitorship of the Long
fellow school, together with the "peti
tion against the removal of Chas. John
son, would report that we gave the sub
ject our earnest consideration at a meet
ing appointed for the purpose, and at
which Inspectors Dobner and Kuhles
were present by invitation, such meet
ing being held on the 12th ult.
The petition referred to was read, as
also a communication from the
"Eleventh Ward Union," the latter
document representing that the petition
had been "freely signed under a mis
understanding of the facts in thecase,"
and embodying a resolution to uphold
Inspector Kuhles in the selection "of
such a janitor as he may deem fit," etc.
Inspector Dobner was heard in advo
cacy ot the retention of Chas. Johnson,
and Inspector Kuhles stated at length
his reasons for desiring a change.
Having thus fully investigated and
inquired into the matter, for all of the
specific details of which we refer to our
report of evidence on file, we recom
mend that Max Schiffner be appointed
janitor of the Longfellow school at the
schedule salary, to date from Jan. 14,
1889, and that Charles Johnson be re
lieved from duty as janitor upon the ie
moval of said school to its new building;
that said Johnson, however, be retained
in the service of the Board at his present
salary, and assist in putting the new
building, grounds, etc., in perfect order
and condition, after which he is to re
port to the Secretary for assignment to
such other work as may be necessary to
be done during the current school year.
