Outline of Preliminary Plan
Chicago, May 13. An independent
board of trade, to be run by the com

country, is to be established in Chi

the recent decision of the United

for carrying on their former profitable
game. "Chicago markets" and "Chica

with the speculative public, and both

the great central headquarters of the
combined bucket-shop interests here.

quotations for grain and provisions as
near as possible to those of the Chicago
