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, and 24 in Omaha. Declines of a point or over wer? phown in Sugar. Chicago Gas. General Electric. Pacific Mall. Tennessee Coal. Leather preferred. Western Union. Northwest. St. Paul. New York Ontral. Canada Southern, Cleveland. Chicago. Cincinnati & St. Louis. Atchison pr f erred ind Louisville & Nashville. Tobacco fluctuated quite widely on manipulative or tlfrs, rising 24. losing 14 and rising again 1. Consolidated Gas and Itke Shore rose 7- and Pi. respectively, in the last trading. lut soon reacted 2j and 14, respectively. The closing was weak, net losses averaging & point in the standard shares. Trading in ttonds wus in small volume, but n firm tor.o was: manifest and most of the lt-ading issues mnde slight progress towards a hlghtr plane. The St. Louis Southwestern l.s.sui again attracted attention by wide variations on a lower range, the seconds losing per cent. The sales were $vT.int. Government bonds continued to display strength, but the higher range failed to elicit offerlnsrs and transactions were re Ftrlcted to purchases of ' Hl.OuO of the old fours.

SHARP BREAK IN WHEAT HI LLS DISC Ol ItA(ii:i) AM) PIllCKS DLCLIVLH STUADILV. 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 2V..o higher. 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 Estimated Receipts on Thursday Wheat, 27 cars; corn, 113 cars; oats, 121 cars; hogs, 23.000 head.

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 year. 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 rates. Tasmanian and Victorian stock was also in demand and sold well. The general tone of the market was firmer, with the continent and home buyers more active. The offerings aggre gated IS, 166 bales, of which 2.00 were with drawn.

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 THE L. A.

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.
