CHICAGO , Jnn. ll.-Covcrtng by shorts
was the principal feature of all the rnar-
kats on 'change today. In wheat this was
of siiiriclent volume to overcomes tlio ef
fect of the bearish news , Mny closing nt
J/4o advance. Corn Rained He , oats \io \ and
Iirovlslons closed 2V4ff.1o higher. Trading
was light In all departments.
There were supporting orders In Avhcat
nt the opening nnd nlso enough buying of
short whent nt the same time to make
firmness quickly follow a weak opening.
First trades In Mny were at from DWWWiu ,
compared with M ! c yesterday. Beyond n
drain nt Liverpool no reason was apparent
for the opening decline. Some weakness
was developed oh yesterday's curb , nnd
anticipation of .a moderate raid tsday
probably had 'Its Influence at the start.
1'rlceg slowly Improved during the next
liour , but the height of Its forenoon bulge
was S0c , The only notable feature of that
Vc rise from the lowest1 point at the opening
was the dullness nnd small extent of busi
ness that nccompinlcd It. One rather heavy
local operator bought about 2.10,000 bu. and
Hold at a higher price , and the most of the
other buying during the two hours was
by the local scalpers , who , It appeared ,
must have very generally gone homo short
yesterday , Minneapolis nnd Duluth re
ceipts were 37H cars , acnlnat 3.10 the year
before and 405 last .week. Chicago Inspec
tions showed receipts of ICO cars , against
410 last year. Of today'n receipts ' 1
cars wore contract. Cables from Liverpool
reported tin- continent reselling cargoes of
wheat , and Argentine cargoes bringing
i'iual | lo $1.00'/4 for January , and February
shipment being offered for later delivery
down ti ) ! )9',4c ) ' The news from the continent
was of a similarly bearish character , and
llio 2.1,000060 bu. to 40CO'J,000 ' bu. that Argen
tine Is expected to have for export was thp
extent of all'their ' dispatches. Hradstreet's
maili' the world's visible show an Increase
of CM.CW bu , against n decrease the Similar
wek In 1SI7 of 1,030,000 bu. New York re
ported 1CO.COO bu. Manitoba wheat sold for
export nt 12c premium over May price.
Kxports from Atlantic ports , Including
New Orleans , were equal In wheat and
Hour to SGO.OiM bu. Closlno of foreign mar
kets was at "frii'Ad decline at Liverpool ,
from 1 to 5 centimes decline In Hour and
4 to T. centimes in wheat nt- Paris , with
Antwerp unchiuigpd. During the afternoon
the market ijcvi'lipod great strength. The
.Lelter party , though selling soms , certainly
bought a great deal more than It disposed
of. A good many of the smaller shorts
covered very freely toward the close , and
thi market responded quickly to the buy-
Ing. May advanced to 91'Bc and was sell
ing for Ulc ut the close.
Corn was llrm , although the market was
dull throughout tinsession. . Shorts were
Inclined to COV T and offerings were small ,
particularly from the country. The rainy
WXflther Influenced the price somewhat , as
" It was believed lighter receipts would re
sult therefrom. The firmness of wheat after
Us weak opening' was also a help. Mny
nvnnfd from 29-KfTi < 29Vic to 2Sft29c * , and
closed -TsC higher at 2c. ! )
Oats , with the exception of the Immediate
opening , were firm all day. The market
was very quiet and outside of a general
Inclination of shorts to cover lackad fea
ture. The llrmiiess of wheat and corn was
mainly responsible- the strength In oats.
Offerings were light. May ranged from
Wit' to 2.Ti-lic ) ! , and closed ' /4c higher
at 2.1-ViC.
There was a small market In provisions.
Trices wore llrm and ruled at a slight ad
vance , although opening' ' lower on large hog
receipts. Shorts were Inclined to cn-er and
UK re were no offerings from packers. At
the close May pork was Cc higher at $ .1.97 ,
Stay lard a shade higher at $ UO and -May
ribs 2'ie ' higher at $1.70.
Kstlmnted receipts Wednesday : Wheat ,
XT 40 cars ; corn , " 00 cars ; oats , HO cars ; hogs ,

100 car * of whtot"bi)9 car of corn and 375 cam
of oats. These corn receipts are about 20 > ) cars
less than were oxjiected and the oats receipts
about 125 cors less , with an estimate of 40
earn of wheat , 3.0 cars of corn and 113 cars , of
oatn for tomorrow , which , no doubt , assisted In

The offerings on the decllno have been very

per cent to M per cent , tind the HnsMnn state
ment of big deficiencies In all cereals , none of
which Irivrt drawn nny particular attention , but
the scarcity of wheat i the northwest had a
marked effect upon the market , causing a goo.1
demand frnm those termed prominent , shorls , and
ursl trd In closing the market lit Uc ndvancu
all around In wheat , with corn % a stronger1 and
oats He stronger.
Wo luive prophesloJi this northwestern -nrclty
for the past sixty days , expecting It to show
prominently by January 1 , The fact that there
Is filch a feature In Inn market l now recog
nized and will become more promliwnt In the

Kieut amount of reported foreign conditions lo
affect our markets U lias never required but n
llttlo home news tn have a marked effect , and
w believe , a nlvove stated , that May wheat

NEW YOIIK , Jnn. 11. London oiicrators In
Anicrlcin Becuiltles had apparently lecovered
some of their confidence In the future of values
In this country today after the a'.arm ' they 'had
manifested yesterday over our political future.
Some tharn gains were recorded for Americans
on the hondon exchange before the opening hour.
In fact the L. > ndon bullishness outran the- local
opening and New York prices legpundcil lully to
the rlsB In London. The market all day was one
dllllcult of nnnlysls on account of Its iineveiiness.
Them were points of notable strensth and others
of marked weakness In the list and neither was
altogether effcctliu In giving tone to the mar
ket. Hugnr was the special point of weakness
and the large volume of transactions In It gave
Its Weakness nnd Influence on the list. The
grangers were nlso heavy In the curly dealings ,
though a subsequent recovery brought their
urlces a traction above yesterday's close. The
co.ilera were centers of depression on account
01' the condition of trade und the unseasonable
mlidness of the weatrier. On the other hand
them w.is very striking nctlvlty nnd strength
In the Northern I'nclllc stocks nnd in Union I'a-
clllc. This strength teemed to extend to con
necting railroads In t.ie west and northwest.
Thus not only nre Northern I'acllic nnd union
1'nclllc from 'A to 2 points higher , but Denver
& Hlo Qrnndc picferred , Union 1'uclflc. Denver
& Gulf , Oregon Navigation , Oregon Slurt 'Une '
and Oregon Improvement show gains
langlng up ? i per cent In Oregon
Navigation. These stcx-ks were strong
on anticipation of Increased trnlllcklng
on the move to the Klondike. They were nelpea
ulso by the decision of the Interstnte commis
sion to continue the suspension of the long : and
short haul clause on tnutle in competition with
Canadian railroads. The dealings In tiio Blocks
of these transcontinental lines were vety heavy
and transfers of bl K'ks of K-veral thoufeahd shares
wce aulte frequent all day. Manhattan was cn-
othei feature of the market on the nutliorll&Uvo
nnnouncement of an Intention to chantw to tlec-
trlc motive power. People's Gas scored a sharp
rise. The Ohio soft coal roads sh- > wed a con
tinuance of their iccent ftrength nnd
newly awakened activity. Consolidated < ! ns
moved up 3 points and then fell
hack 4. Metropolitan Street railroad
clone I at last night's llgures. Money closed
slightly lower , but most of the business of the
day was tlcne nt 3 iier cent. In the time ; money
maikct , however , rales weixj down to 2 per
cent for sixty daysnnd from 3 to 3',4 per cent
ifor three to seven months. There was an ac
tive demand for commercial paper , but the tmp-
ply was good. Among the notable movements
of the day were the decline of Vi per cent in
Ilaltlmoro & Ohio nnd u rife of 2 points In tht ;
ccimmon and preferred stock of iSusquchamm
& Western. The bond market w s very ac
tive and the high grate Issues nil showed high
prices. There were fcveral transactions on rur
value of JIOO.OOO. It was very well distributed ,
but the Atehlson , Union I'uelllc , Texas & Pnc-
cltlo and Union l'acln > , Denver & Gulf Issues
l d In point of activity. Total sales , J5.UM.OOO.

CATTLE Ilecelpts of cattle were the
larKt-st of any day since before the. holidays
und still there were only 110 loads reported
In As was the cnso yesterday , there was
quite a sprinkling of feeders and stock
cattlo. which materially reduced the number
of beeves on sale. The market as n whole
was In pretty fair shape , and as a rule
satisfactory to the. selling Interests.
Armour had u buyer In the yards , which
helped to brace up local buyers , though ho
did not buy any great number , and the de-
nuuid for beef steers was quite good. There
was some little inclination to Indulge in
bear tactics , and early bids were in some
cases lower , but the supply was not-largo
enough to admit of very much bearlshness
and the cattle generally sold about the
same as yesterday. The demand for tidy
little cattle was especially good , and offerIngs -
Ings of such , mot with ready sale at firm
prices. Kverytiilng In the yards changed
Hands early in the day.
Cows and heifers were In good demand
and sold at about the same prices as prevailed -
vailed yester-Jay.
What was said yesterday regarding the
trade In stockers and feeders would apply
equally well today. The. demand was good
and the offerings of desirable kinds met
with ready sale at strong prices. Repre
sentative sales :
