CnroAGO, Jan. 3.—At the board of trado
election to-day Mr. L. Nason Blike, of
' -.. was elected preeident
and ith, late of Smith &
I. "i- c 1.1 vice president. Yes
terdaj these dispatchts, liftle
else ; >::;; tha eleoti was thonght of, but
to-day the ele stiom ring was left to a few
win!-; the remainder quietly deposited
their votes and Hastened into the pits to
sell wheat, bey corn or canvass the posi
tion of Armour in regard to provisions.
The wheat market opened very weak
qnder advices from Liverpool of a large
failure and .-'.ports from New Yorit that
ther.: . large lot of wheat
posted as out of condition. Opening at
abou: $I.ol*jg for May the market receded
to $1.01%, Bold to $1.00% then to $I.oo^,
advanced to $1.01%, went off, and after
fluctuating closed at $1.01% bid. There
was ojlj 050 sUa reported atsl.ol}£. The
market was Gtrecgthened by the heavy
purchase.-, of Jno. Lenter, Charley Mair,
"Deacon" ELobbs and Roach, who took
nearly a million bushels each, Lester
bought during the day 1,500,000 bushels.
Thene parties have been the h taviest .-ellera
for the past week or ten days, nnd were
simply covering shorts, L 'ter tho market
wai firmed b; the report that the export
er- were taking ihe posted unconditioned
I ir? New York at $1.08)£, being only
3 ust why tho posting of wheat as
damaged should be a means of
depressing t-ie market, and the fact
that it was'being bought in the placs of
good 1 merely nominal reduction
be quoted as a ball feature, your
correspond ' to comprehend, yet
Buch was the case. On the call and on
thy curb th < to be a good deal of
strt;: ; ..h Ihti market, but it waß
ix-:i\ aud her.ee not to be depended
npon far pernaanency. The hammering
by the bears and the change of front by
their tfhilom companions before named
werti about the only features in
the wheat pit. Crittenden &
Harvey ''are ii;cliu4d to think that we shall
get .1 good rally in prices before seeing a
lower range of values." A large number
of telegrams from St. Louis were received
during the day, and nearly all of them
were bullish oa wheat and bearish on corn.
The foreign advices were all unfavorable
to-day, and the stock in store is 12,044,958
bushels against 11,800,415 bushels one
week ago. It goes without saying that
the parties who last night prophesied May
wheat $1 to-dsy were much disappointed
when $1.01% was bid on the curb to-night.
There was considerable demand from
shippers to-day for corn of the lower
grades. The receipts were 324 cars, and
stocks were posted 3,161,211 bnshels,
against 2,580.«;84 a week ago. The stock
of No. 2in store is now 2452,033. The
speculative market opened weaker and
prices declined rallied %@%c,
but fiualiy closed about 13^0 lower for
Belier January, %c lower for February,
and T_c lower for May than on yesterday.
Tho clump in January affected the
other optioLS, aud was occasioned
by the'del dioy of th^ holders
of the January corn. On the call, however,

s'i.entiou depends almost
tvely upon the stocks which the far
mer <iad 00 amisi :uen have noS driven
to market The stocks here are not rela
tively greater than oeual attb s season of
tbe year.
Tbe cteotion wtr"eh concluded to-day had
many amusing features connected with its
progress. Mr. Wright's friends deemed
his election quito certain until this morn
ing, wlu-n some ticktta were circulated
with "yellow wagon candidate, for presi
dent, E. N. Blake," printed in black letters
on yellow paper. The wagons used by
Armour & Co., are all painted yellow;
Phillip Armoar is often termed "the old
yellow wagon." The Dake bakery wagons
are also painted yellow. Mr. Blake is
one of its proprietors. The tioket
was thus capable of two significations, and
both were correct. It was evident all the
Armoar crowd, its brokers and "tailers," !
•were bound to beat Mr. Wright, and they j
di _ it by giving Blake 785 votes to A. M.
<Vright436. A promiuent imd on the
street remarked: This ia a vindication
endorsement of the coarse taken by
. Blake and his s^pr.orterson ihe board
ir i-.cticn regarding the McGecch
ler lard case. it 13 also
significant proof to members of
the board of trade who are not willing to
be bound by their contracts, and who stand
ready to appeal to the courts at any time
when they get squeezed. Mr. Wright
tried to stsL-d on high moral ground as an
opponent of corners, but "the boys" char
acterize him as a "kicker." Hia action in
tho July, 1882 wheat deal, and his sympa
thy Willi Fowler Bros., as against Mr.
UcGeooh are the things which
belt him. The Globz correspondent
- died at the office of Phil
Armour & Co., to congratulate them on
having elected their candidate. King
Phillip and hi 3 cabinet were in fceseion.
Ou hia left in the place formerly occupied
by Geo. Brine, sat Harry P. Darlington,
who formerly represented Washington
Butchers sons ia Chicago. Ha has not
been long enough in his position to have
caught tbe dislike for newspaper men
which his vis a vis, Mr. WeSster, broaght
with him from New York, as that Jesuiti
cal, clammy hand-clasp of CaL
Favorite, who fronts the chief,
but he is rapidly acqniring tne
ready nmile and open lrank expression of
Phil himself. All ware in good humor. I
said: 'Mr. Armour, 1 congratulate you on
having elected your president, and upon
your increasing popularity. Oue of the
oldest Democrats on tho street jaat re
marked that if the Republicans would
nominate you for president he woald vote
for you." "Thanks," replied the enthroned
pork king, reaching over and handing
your correspondent one of the
yellow wagon tickets, "1 never
spoke to Mr. Blake in my
life, but we learned he was not a kicker
aud didn't go back oa his contracts."
Mr. Favorite made some sarcastic allus
ions about "right or wrong," but Mr.
Webster only smiled his satisfaction that
the candidate who was said to have tho
support of the Anglo-American Packing
company had been defeated. Mr. Blake
waß warmly supported by the flour crowd,
who ran bim at tha head of the titckei of
their own. Frank Clifton, of Fowler
Bros. & Co., is said to have
excused his supporting the defeated
candidate by saying he thought ho was
running "James Wright," referring to
"James Wright & C 0.," the Fowlers' pet
brand of lard. Tho board of trade have*
elected a good set of officials all through.
They are men of honor and responsibility,
in whose hands the interests of tha specu
lators as well aa the trading community
will be conserved.
The hog market was generally quiet, yet
a few early sales were made at yesterday's
closing prices bnt the great bulk of the
business transacted up to noon, when this
report closed, showed a decline of about
100 en all grades except choice Pniladel
pbias. The run was only fair, but tho de
mand mainly from packers and shippers,
speculators not taking hold very fr«e!y.
Some salesmen declared the_e was a drop
of 15 to 20c, but thi3 is hardly borne out
by the rtturns. The quality was much
better ihan any day last week. A large
number of the bo3t farmers of Illinois and
lowa are marketing their own breeding
and raising. Receipts were liberal and a
fair demand for fat and fully finished
cattle at about last week's prioes and
equally aR high as yesterday. Toe best
grades of butchers' stock seemed to be
holding its own and making as good
prices as last week. Csnners and com
mon rather easier, but sot quotably lower.
The supply of Btockers and feeders was
light, pricts very high and a fair demand.

Chicaoo, Jan. 8. —The local money market
is unchanged. There was a good attendance »f
borrowers and a fair inquiry cx:sted for funds.
Rates remain steady at 6 per cent, on call and 7
percent, on time. Eastern exchange between
city banks changed hands at 75 premium per

Railway were not wanted bi tho

evidently for tit:: purpose of
marketing other stocks. There was
little life during tho middle of the day, the
market looking quite tired at times. There
were whispers in the air that Chicago, Bur
lington &. Qaiccy and its opponents were
having trouble. Inside of thirty days the
report will be audible enough, for well in
formed parties s-.-em to feel confident that
there will be a heap of mischief within that
time. Alton had a small boom. The stook
sold at 130, having closed last evening at
1344. The earnings of the Illinois Centrf 1
for the fourth week in December decreased
$00,000. Many other lines will make even a
worse showing. It is generally conceded
by railroad men that earnings reached the
zenith soaie time since. Union Pacific was
offered s-f z below present figures, seller

$5,000,000 bonds, A half million silk
failure did uo; effect matters much.
The Grdf, Colorado & Santa Fe Railroad
company has made application to the
stook exchange for listing $334,000 first
mortgage bonds. Tha West Shore road
has appied for listing tho remainder of
its fir-it mortgage bonds on the slock ex
change, amounting to §14,750,000.
The company states that it
has thus far expended $15,000,000

been fixed for Thursday. AU tho priests
and fathers of the diocese of Alton are in
vited to attend. Father Abbelyn, of Mil
waukee, has arrived, and will look after
the interests of the society, and arrange
for the funeral attd the future disposition
of the remaining sisters.
The latest report from Belleville to
night is that no more bodies were found
1 his afternoon aud no more identifications
were made. The inquest has proceeded all
day and will be continued to-morrow. The
testimony has been of a somewhat con
flicting character, but shows pretty clearly
that the fire department was entirely inad
equate to cope with such a fire and sadly
deficient in the neoassary appliances. Sis
ter Elentheria testified this afternoon that
eha thought there were peventj -one persons
in the convent at the time of the fire,
thirty-seven of whom esoaped,
thus leaving thirty.four ac missing. This
cannot be verified, however, as all the
rtoords were burned, but the sister will at
tempt to recall from memory the names of
these present, and by comparing the
names try and reach the actual number.
This testimony created considerable sen
nation, and every effort will be rofide tq
ai<s6r_aili the facts in the case. The re
mains identified as Emma Stock are now
believed to be those of Miss Bailey, aad it
ie doubttul whether Virginia Heintzelman
has been found. Search will be resumed
again to-morrow and will be prosecuted
