The fir?t peaches of the season were for eale yesterday on Commission row bj Jclin "V. NViimanü & Co. The shipment which 1 of the first sent to this part of the coun try consisted of one car of St. John's and Early Rivera from Texas. The demand for the peaches was fairly active, and before evening a large part of the car had been sold. They 'were put out in four-basket lots from J1.S0 to $1.75 a crate. Other snipments will be received here this week, and next week the receipts will become more liberal. Within two or three weeks the price will be down to $1 a crate at least before the Texas crop is exhausted. The crup will last about four weks.

Improved weather conditions and easier cables caused a small decline in wheat at the opening, initial sales of July being down 6c to Uc. at 7!8c to S7Uc. On an active demand from shorts and good com mission house buying sentiment soon, changed. , Much smaller receipts in the Northwest had an important bearing on the early situation. The tenor of crop news from the Southwest also was generally considered quite bullish. An official fore cast of more showers for that section brought out additional buying orders. Offer ings, however, were not lare, and as a result prices steadily advanced. The market was further strengthened by the world's visible supply figures. Brad street's report showing a decrease in avail able stocks of 4.000,001. There was some re action on selling, duetto expectations of a bearish Illinois crop report, but the declin ing tendency was soon checked and prices ag tin tart ;?d upward. Strength in corn was a help to tho late wheat market. Just before the close reports of a big crop in Manitoba caused some realizing, resulting in another setback. Sentiment, however, continued firm. The high point on July was reached at SSj SäVsC. The close was at csssv;c. Clearances of wheat and flour were equal to 6.30 bu. Primary reoeipts were 352.10), compared with L'31,0 a year ago. Minne apolis, Duluth and Chicago reported re ceipts of 246 cars, against 570 cars last week and J cars a year ago. Under active covering by shorts a rally of about a cent occurred In corn. With the exception of large primary receipts, the nervs of the day was extremely bullish. Receipts were 300 cars less tjian the number estimated, cash prices were up 1 to 2 cents and the weekly Weather Bureau report showed the. crop to be in a very backward condition. A forecast of more rain in the corn bolt also helped to increase bullish sentiment. The market closed almost at the highest point of the season. July opened a shade lower to c higher, at 4SS.c to 4Svc. sold up to 48'549:'c. and closed at i'Jic. Ical receipts were 667 cars, with 35 of contract grade. Oats were quite dull, but stubbornly firm. Strength of wheat and corn was the main sustaining influence. There was no attempt made to sell on the bearish weekly govern ment report, scalpers apparently being afraid to take the short sides. July opened unchanged at sc, ranged between 3UA81; 39Vic and 40c, closing at 33'8c Local receipts were 208 ears. Trading in provisions was more active and the market manifested greater strength than for some time past. There was an urgent demand from shorts and a promi nent packer also was a heavy purchaser. Ii'ht receipts of hogs with a firm mar ket at the yards was responsible for much of the buying. The close was at the top. with September pork up 3."2c at lU.iZh2- September lard closed with a gain of 15c at $6.60. Ribs made an advance of liVsC, closing at S7.12tfcfi7.15.

Aside from the arrival of the first peaches of the season the feature of the produce markets yesterday was an advance of 10 cents a bushel In potatoes for both old and new. This puts the price to $1.G0. During the next two weeks receipts of potatoes will be very small, and prices will not be lower until the Tennessee crop comes onto the market. That will be between the 20th and the 25th. Heavy rains In Texas and Arkansas are the causes for the falling off in the receipts. The crops in both States which. early in the sason promised to be much larger than last year's yield have been practically ruined by the rains. In the first place the crops were nac.iy aamagea wnne tney were maturing. And now that the have ma tured, thousands and thousands of bushels have been rotted by the raius of the past week, and In many sections of Arkansas digins has been put out of the question by the water. As these two States furnish most of the potatoes consumed here until the Tennes see crop is marketed, the present conditions In Texas and Arkansas are going to cause a material shortage la the supply of pota toes here for the next two weeks.

June 7.-The professional contingent in the stock market started to day with very discouraging views of the hopes of any activity in the market or of any movement of prices. The failure of the market to show any response to yesterday's decided movement in Ontario & Western was made the basis for this hopelessness, and the reflection of realizing sales in the early one-point decline In that stock ag gravated the depressed sentiment. But the market turned out better in tone and in distribution of business than was the case uuder the stimulating influence of yesterday's rise in Ontario & Western.. It would be difficult to fix upon a specific cause for this development, as the current news seemed to have little Influence on the mar ket. The weekly bulletin on the crops of the Weather Bureau proved rather more fa vorable than was expected on wheat for both the winter and spriug crops, and the favorable progress of the cotton crop went to accentuate the effect of the government report of the Juue 1 condition of that crop. The bulletin was less hopeiul as to the corn crop, but the maturity of that crop is still so far distant as to detract from the importance attached to its present con dition Favorable progress for the crops is better calculated than any other devel opment to settle the fluctuating opinions over the business prospects of the country. Hope seems to be thus engendered that tht pieseut lower plane of business and in dustry may be nevertheless on a Arm basis, with reasonable assurance against a pro gressive decline to a level of prostration. The rather constant ratio of the decline in railroad earnings goes to establish this tooling. A late recovery in Ontario & fst eru produced more effect to-day elsewhere in the market than did yesterday's more sensational advance, and the kindred coal ers were especially affected. The market was still far from being a broad one. and was almost wholly In professional hands so far as could be perceived. The personality of the brokers employed in the late buying conveyed an impression that om of the larger interests were thinner i.irv nnd the sensational effect of the buying was thus enhanced. The money market was almost stagnant nnd rntPS were inclined to droop, though with little money offering at the present nnnttrQMivo ratps. The advance in the stirlinf ratos at Paris to 25 franCS rentim.'s was a decisive indication that the course of cardtal was no longer drawing toward that center. Incoming gold to the London market was accordlnclv taken by the Bank 01 r-ng- land with no demand for Paris account The discount market was yielding, both In Paris and London. The market for sterling v-iplded. thus deferring, if not nvprtinc an onteo of cold to London from here. Prices eased off in the final dealings. hut thp closing was steady The hond market was irregular, with weak spots amongst the lower grade bonds, Total sales at par value were $1,743,000, Tnitfd states bonds were unchanged on Call.

NEW Yof.K, June 7. Although the trad ing in Ontario & Western to-day was rela tively heavf it was not on the same scale as yesterday and the market in conse quence pnRented an appearance of less animation. 2Vs a matter of fact trading was in small vojime and if. the sales in Ontario &. Western were eliminated the total for the trading session would have been de cidedly smtll. The trading in Ontario & Western g.-ive evidence to-day, as it did yesterday, nf some manipulation, and there are many nho believe that the movement In the stoc1: is purely speculative. Some doubt is e?Äressed as to the ability of the voting tru.flees to abolish the trust, even though thy- desire to do so. Under the terms of te trust It cannot be dissolved until a divllend has been earned and paid on the confnon stock. The earnings avail able for dividends, even last year, were jess tnan 11, per cent, on the stock. The price to-d.'tj- was advanced to Z, but it reacted befofe the close. There was no ani mation of :.y kind in the rest of the mar ket. Steel preferred. Union Pacific. St. Paul and RSading were firm and held their own. Souttern Pacific was relatively strong. Th Erie issues showed little change. Chicago Great Western common showed a little strength, but the trading was light. : London did very little in the market.
