The bears succeeded in effecting quite a
notable break in the New York stock mar
kit yesterday In the last half hour of trad
ing, after partly futile attempts to the same
end all day. The short Interest, whose lines
ore reputed. to have been greatly extended
fcince the transmtesouri decision of the Su
preme Court, was palpably uneasy all day
on account of the marked resumption of
etrength in the market Tuesday and the ap
parent subsidence of the fright of security
holders over tho effects of the decision. A
continuance of the improved line was evi
dent at the opening in epite of the decline
in prices on the I-ondon Exchange and a
general advance occurred, not cjfceedinpr a
fraction in any of the active shares, but
reaching a point or over In the case of
Canada Southern, Canadian Pacific, Cleve
land. Chicago. Cincinnati Sc St. Iouis, Sus
quehanna &. Western preferred and Erie
first preferred. New Jersey Central con
tinued under heavy pressure to sell, but
the special motives for the selling In the
lelief that the dividend .may be reduced and
In the published assertions of the bad
financial condition of its related coal com
pany detracted from its effectiveness as an
instrument for dtpresfing the general mar
ket. The bears, however, continued to cen
ter their main attack on New Jersey Cen
tral all day in the determined and sys
tematic attempt to stem the upward course
of prices. From this stock they made ex
cursions Into various fields. The Gould
Ftocks were attacked as a group. Manhat
tan falling 2 points and Missouri Pacltic
and Western Union 1 each. This Induced
home realizing sales, but the market soon
recovered and resumed its upward
tendency. Even New Jersey Central itself,
which was th, center of O depression all
day. rallied somewhat af,.:: uchlng 74
It was after delivery hour v n an tin
expected rclling movement set in In Dela
ware & Hudson. The only explanation of
fered was the general depression existing
in the coal trade and rumored losses by
Hoods in the company' mines. The sales
were not very large, but under a persistent
lmbardir.ent of small lots the price went
down by leaps and bour.ds, the decline
reaching fS. carrying the price down
to 100". The final purchases only Im
proved the stock a fraction. Lackawanna
only registered three sales of a total of T'H)
shares in the last fifteen minutes of trad
ing, but this was sufficient to depress the
toek 34 points. The Reading stocks
escaped any very noticeable effect of the
raid, except the first preferred, which de
clined lVs- The heavy selling In New Jersey
Central was simultaneously resumed and
the stock was sold down to 77. showing a
decline frem the top level of 6 points. New
Jersey Central sold at the opening on
March 1 for 27. showing a net decline In
March of 20 points. Just at the close It
rallied a point. Much was made also by
the bears of a. statement bv Senator Cul
lom. chairman of the Senate committee on
Interstate commerce, that there was no
chance of the passage of the pooling bill at
this session of Congress. The whole market
sold off in consequence, losses reaching
in the case of Ilurlington & Rock Island,

SHARP BREAK IN WHEAT
HI LLS DISC Ol ItA(ii:i) AM) PIllCKS
Lliuttl:it ion Ile&rnu at the Tap of the
Bell, and Wheat (Hip Time Touched
TO l-Sc-Olher 3Iarketn Firm.
CHICAGO. March 21. The longs in wheat
were thoroughly disheartened by a further
sharp break in that market to-day, May
closing at ?4C decline. It sold within
Vsc of 70c at one time. Weak cables and
a poor ca.sh and export demand started
liquidation which continued almost with
out cebation all day. Other grain and
provision markets were comparatively
steady, corn closing a shade higher, oats
unchanged and provisions 22c lower to
Liquidation of long May wheat began
with the tap of the opening bell and con
tinued all forenoon. Uy 11:U'J o'clock the
price of that option had declined to 70?8fy
7o'ic. compared with 71i7lc at the close
of the market yesterday. It opened at
from 71c to 71 He While May was making
the decline of lc referred to, July lost
only -fcc. July could at any time during
the decline be sold in considerable quanti
ties at the bid price without further de
pressing it until a greater concession was
forced by the difficulty of rinding buyers
for May. Additional weakness of the
market was due merely to the continuation
of previous R-arish conditions, weakness
abroad and no appearance of any buying
by foreigners, notwithstanding the daily
inducement offered here of lower prices.
Liverpool quoted a decline of -d at the
start and a further loss of later in
the clay. A private cablegram from Liver
pool reported arrivals there of cargoes of
white wheat as weighing that market
down this morning. Minneapolis and Du
luth receipts were 31d cars, compared with
333 a wcck ago and 237 last year. The re
ceipts here .ere 11 carloads. Lxports of
wheat and Hour from Atlantic ports were
equivalent to 324. utu bushels. New York
reported prominent tirms there selling
wheat futures on cable orders and selling
out of long. May wheat, held for torelyn
account was a feature of the pit transac
tions here at the opening. Tnere was a
rumor near the end of the session that
the decline in price had awakened a little
export inquiry at tho seaboard and that
twenty-live boatloads had been worked.
The most that could le contlrmed. how
ever, was two boatloads. The milling de
mand at Chicago was satisfied with 21. UK)
bushels. The decline in May to Tinuc
was followed by a. slight rally which took
it to 7u?4c. and that by another decline
to Tvigc and a recovery to 7u7ic at the
close. July got at low as ClVJi&tiyi-ic and
closed at t;"sc.
Corn held remarkably firm in contrast
to the weaknes In wheat. The fluctuations
were insignificant, but the tendency was
for the most part In the direction of im
provement. Wet weather West with good
prospects of a continuance of the samo,
light receipts. 103 cars, and good exports.
713.(M) bushels, all tended to hold prices
steady at a shade above yesterday's prices.
Mav opened a shade lower at 24c, sold to
21Ti25c and closed steady at 217Sc.
Considering the weakness In wheat, oats,
like corn, were relatively very firm, al
though there was scarcely anything to In
fluence such a tendency. No news items
developed, business was dull and prices
confined to a narrow range. May opened a
shade, lower at 17H17jc, sold to 17-;til7c
and closed at lTUc bid.
Provisions ojened rather weak because
of fairly llleral receipts of hogs at West
ern points. At the decline with which trad
ing commenced there were buying orders
enough to prevent any further loss, and
near the end, when wheat had got a turn
for the better, the decline' was all recov
ered and a small fraction to the good. At
tho close May pork was 2 higher at
R.jTVs. May lard 24c lower at $4,224 and
May ribs a. shade higher at $4.6.k

rOSTON. March 31. The American Wool and
Cotton Reporter will say to-morrow of the wool
trade: Such times as the present were never
before seen In the wool market. The sales this
wek in Roston exceed those of the previous
week. Since Jan. 1 the Boston sales have reached
the enormous figure of 95.2'j4.2i pounds, as
against 30.2td.SOO for the same period in Pi. It
should be said that the figures tor the iast week
by no mean represent the amount of wool which
has gone into the hands of actual consumers.
It is the opinion of one of the most . careful and
competent authorities in Boston that probably
50 ier cent, of the transactions recently made
were bv dealers. Prices cannot be said to hae
yet reached a Fettled basis. Asking prices have
been advanced in quite a remarkable manner,
and in not a few Instances the sellers have had
marked success In bringing purchasers up to their
figures. The stock of Territory In Boston Is un
questionably comparatively small: on a scoured
basis staple wool is quoted at around 4c.
Scoured and pulled wools have been particularly
active. Sales of foreign wool have continued
verv heavy, particularly of Australian. South
American crosa-brtds and foreign scoured. Sales
in Boston for th? week aggregated 12.S.TA500
l.und. 5.151.50.) being domestic and 7,6S3,i0 for
eign; tht compares with a total of l.Tol.ox
pounds during the corresponding; week of last
LONDON. March 31. Attendance at the wool
auction eales to-day wan good and the bidding
was mre spirited from all quarters. The Amer
ican buyers were again very active, they pur
chasing a gxhi selection of crops-breds at full

in demand and sold well. The general tone of
the market was firmer, with the continent and

"CHICAGO. March SI. The Industrial World
to-morrow will say: Western iron and steel mar
kets have paused during the week to await the
effect of the ore pool dissolution upon prices.
Among buyers the impression has existed that
the range might le lower. There have been as
yet no apparent results of this kind. Foundry
pig iron is produced from non-Bessemer ores,
which are not affected by the dissolution. Prices
for Northern irons are unchanged. No. 2 foundry
selling at 110.75. Some grades of Southern Iron
tre a, little weaker. No. 2 foundry being quote.!
at $10.25a 10.40. steel products are selling In fair
vclume at unchanged prices.
NEW YORK. March 31. As usual to the clos
ing day of the month, there was a large total
of sales as the result of new purchases, deliv
eries on former ones and the charging up of
many goods on memorandums, such business In
cluding manufactures of wool, cotton and silk.

Problem Believed to Hare lleen
Solved by a elraka Inventor.
OMAHA, Neb., March Sl.-Durlnp the
past six months an alleged air-ship has
been observed floating in the heavens in
different sections of this State. For the
past three nights It has been hovering over
Omaha. The unusual occurrence has cre
ated much comment, which has crystallized
In the opinion that an inventor of a real
air-ship has been testing his machine In
Nebraska preparatory to placing it be-fore
tho public. The Indications are that John
O. Preast, of this county. Is the author of
the mysterious machine. Preast is a
unique character, occupying his time at his
country residence near Omaha In experi
menting with alr-gh!ps, constructing models
and studying all bubjects Incidental to the
theories of applied mechanics along the line
of providing a vessel that will propel Itself
through tho air. He has consumed the past
ten years in this way. and tho walls of his
home, are covered with drawing of queer
shajee! things, some resembling gigantic
birds, while others look something like a
big cigar, all of which he says represent
models of air-ships. He is regardeel as a
crank by many, though being a man of
very superior education. Ho came to Oma
ha from Germany twenty years ago, and
has lived the life of a recluse. With a few

who know him In Omaha. h stands very
high. Mr. l'nast rtfu-s to admit that tho
air-ship rojortd In different sections of tha
State Is his Invention, hut h ha lnfii
away from home revently much of his time,
which Is very unusual for him. and som
time since he told several p-rsons that h
would surprise the world with a, working
model In hJ". The Ib;ht that has teen tst-en
traverslnff the h-avt-n.- ha l-n nbout tha
only part of the air-ship that has evir bet-a
S n. This Is because it has never been vis
ible except on dark night. Many think
this is additional evidence of the Inventor's
shrewd nes.'1. since he experiments only on
dark nights when non can tell what he Is
doing. There is no doubt that the light
seen In different part- of the State is th
same, tince the descriptions by dozens of
people, who have feen it always aurec. Tha
light is atKut as large as a locomotive
headlight, and seems to be turned up. down
right and left at the will of some human
agency. Sometimes it is sen rushing
through the air at a very high rate of
speed and again 1h obnervt-d stationary or
moving slowlv through the heaven about
half a mile high. The two times in the past
week that the light has been seen at Oma
ha it disappeared near Preast'a home, hov
ering over the place for u few minutes and
then appeared to go out. A number of per
sons have called on Preast in reference to
the matter, but he has laughed at thena
nnd In a good natured way refused to give
them any information. He denies, however,
that the alr-shlp. If it U an air-ha, u m
his own construction.
