From Sunday's Edition The following matter on this page appeared In Sunday's edition. Tho reason for this repub lioa is because our regular mail rate of sub scription does not include the Sunday issue, and comparatively few in the country care to pay extra for the Sunday edition, which lies in the St. Paul postoflice and goes out in the same mail with the Monday paper. The more im portant news, to tho extent of two or three col umn-, is, therefore, published on Monday foJ the benefit of country subscribers who do not see the Sunday Globe. THE BULLS RAMPANT. THEY SCORE ANOTHER SUCCESS IN YESTERDAY'S GRAIN TRADING, Wheat Forced Up Several Points, an_ Corn -.likewise Booming—Greater Activity nnd Higher Prices Realized for Provisions. [Special Telegram to the Globe.] OnicAGO, April 21. —The bulls had no opposition to-day. As usual the movement started in the wheat pit, where rumors be came current that Armour & Parks who represents the New York syndicate that is dealing here, had combined to force prices up and had fixed on $1.25 a bushel as their limit for May. The short interest became alarmed and bid figures up rapidly. Corn gained strength in sympathy. Provisions were buoyant and excited, and other mar kets were influenced. In wheat, as before stated, a -'rong feeling was developed, a__. trading was active with piices ruling i .>.*r-iderably higher than yesterday, Tnere vas nothing particular developed in outside influ ences to cause the sharp advance, but there was an urgent speculative inquiry both on local and outside account and to this was the advance attributed. The feeling was nervous and decidedly "bullish."' and while offerings were quite liberal and required a continual advance to bring out sellers and enable buyers to fill their orders. The early mar ket was from the same to }^@%c higher than closing figures on 'change yesterday, but }£@%a lower than the closing figures on call board yesterday afternoon. Later under an active demand prices were ad vanced 2 14©2;jjC above inside prices, and finally closed 2i 4 'c higher for May, 2j^c higher for June, and 23 higher for July than the closing figures on 'change yester day. June and July are now the principal futures traded in. Winter and spring wheat were held higher owing to the ad vance in the speculative grade, but little business was transacted in either. Although the demand continues moderate the offer ings are liberal. Flour was more active, and dealers were asking better prices for all qualities, and were said to be obtaining a good advance for the finer family and bakers' brands, with the options in wheat giving a decided change in tone to this market, while with light grinding for some time it is thought an established advance will be sustained. Rye and buckwheat flour were quite low. Bran and millst___ were in lighter supply and doing better. Corn was active and prices higher, due to speculative influence. Receipts were a trifle larger and foreign ad vices less favorable, but influence by the upward tendency of wheat and an urgent demand on speculative account,*?, ith no great desire to sell, a higher range of prices was established. The markets opened easier, and prices earlier ruled about %c lower, but later advanced }l[@-}4c per bushel for various futures above the inside prices, then receded a trifle, fluctu ated, and finally closed }ie higher for May, }£c higher for June, and /c higher for July, than the closing figures on 'change yesterday. No. 2 was again in good re quest, and offerings only moderate. There are a good many outside orders coming in, and local business to-day was on a moderate scale. Oats were rather quiet. The market was but little influenced by the advancing ten dency of the leading market.-. July was the only future which improved materially. Cash oats were quiet and tame: No. 2 quoted at 41^4 c, and other grades nominal. Sample lots in larger supply. Offerings of mixed oats rather exceeded the demand, and they were easy, but sold fairly and ruled steady. The entire daily arrivals are go ing in the sample market and bringing more on track as free on cars than can be had for the same grade in store. The speculative business undoubtedly would have been heavier to-day had not the attention of the principal operators in this market been engrossed by the excitement . in other markets. Rye was very firm to-day, but nothing of account could be done, owing to the scarcity of sellers. A good inquiry exist ed, and full yesterday's prices were ob tained. Sample lots of barley were slow and easy. There was some demand for No. 3 in special location. The general market was no better, and trade was lim ited. Provisions showed unexpected life to day; activity, firmness and buoyancy were the features of this market. Under the influence of an active speculative demand which appeared at tho opening, and was well sustained throughout the day, a strong feeling, accompanied by a sharp upward movement was witnessed. Higher prices were the rule, and tho advance real ized which was general and substantial, was well supported up to the close. "Pork was the favorite article with specu lators, though in lard and short ribs a good business was transacted. The day's trading aggregated a large volume. The trading in pork was characterized by un usual activity and excitement. The specu lative demand was larger and more urgent than on any day for some time past, and higher prices were established all round. Opening sales weri* made at about the closing prices on yes terday's call, but the market promptly improved and closed 32%@35c higher than opening figures. The trading was confined mainly to May and the later futures. Cash was quiet. April inactive. Lard was iv good speculative demand and higher, the advance established amounting to 7}£@lo cars compared with yesterday's closing prices on 'change. May and the later futures received more atten tion from traders than the near futures. Last Day of the Memphis Races.

C, April 21, 1883.— Sidney Dillon, Esq., President of the Union Pacific Rail road, New York City--Sir: The commis sioner of railroads, in a communication to me dated the 15th inst, submits statements (copies of which are herewith enclosed) showing a cash requirement from your company, for the year ended Dec. 31, 1882, under the act of May 7, 1878, to be $875, -905.51, added to interest requirements claimed from your company to Dec. 31, 1881, the amount now claimed to be due to - the United States after deducting transportaion services performed to December 31,1882, is $1,727,742.54. In addition to demands for payment of various sums already made for periods prior to January 1, 1882, 1 de mand the payment on behalf of the United States from the Union Pacific Railway company of the sum of $825,905.51, which is a cash requirement from the company for the year ending December 30,1882. Attention is called to the statement of the commissioner, as follows: The total balance claimed by the government under the act of|May 7,1878, up to December 31, 1882, is $1,727,742.54. If the whole amount claimed by the company on account of contested items for new construction and new equipment be deducted there would still remain an uncontested balance of $1,036,824.88, as appears from the following statement, and not a part of which has been paid or tendered except $69,358.83. On July 26, 1878, the total cash balance claimed by the government to Dec. 31, 1881, is $901,837.03; for the year ending Dec. 31, 1882, $825,905.51. Total, $1,727,792.54.

If the company has any defense to this part of the cash payment required, this office has not been informed of it. I desire also to call your attention to the sixth section of the act of May 7, 1878, which provides that no dividend shall be voted, made or paid for or to any stockholder or stock holders in either of the said companies respectively, at any time when tho said company shall be in default of payment of either of the sums required as afore said, to be paid into said sinking fund, or in respect to payment of 5 per cent, of the net earnings, etc. If your company should decline to ac cede to my demands for the payment of the whole amount due to the United States, I suggest that at least a pay ment of so much of the balance due the company does not contest, viz: $1,036,824.88 to be made with out further delay and without prejudice to questions in controversy which are proper for judicial determina tion. If the company should pay into the treasury of the United Slates the uncon tested balance as above, I desire it to be distinctly understood that the demand for payment of the whole amount, as herein before stated, is not waived. Of course, you must well know that I have not the authority to demand or accept a less amount than is due to the United States under the law. Yours respectfully, [Signed] H. M. Telleb, Secretary.
