Grout excitement prevailed on 'Change
yesterday, owing lo tbe nptd and rontinued
advance In the price ol wheat. When tbe
advance began five weeks ai;o it wai general
ly anticipated tbat No S red winter wheat
would reach about $t 23 per buibel, and tbe
other rradne proportionate 6 gores. The con
fl rotation ef a shortage tn the European crop
led to tbe advance at Oral, and aa long a It
did not exceed twenty five or thirty cent on
the bushel It wis considered leeltimato and
tba market In a healthy condition. But
when these figures were exceeded the In
creased price was regarded at wholly specu
lative, and tba operators began to trade very
cautiously, expoctlng every day that prioea
would decline. Two week ago the wheat
market did break, and a decline of nine oenta
took place. '

on the F.xcbange floor, tba operators are

at sea . and unable to find a legitimate cause
for tbe surprising advance. It Is generally be
