[Spec i Telegram to the Globe. 1 Chicago, Jan. 21.—The intimate rela tions between Wall street and Chicago markets was strikiDgly exemplified this morning. Most of the trading in wheat was in May , option. It opened with a good deal of animation and rales were iaado at 9Go, SG^c, and 96%0. The tickers, however, brought news of a collapse in stocks and this was followed with the reiterated report of the failure of Jay Gould and the rumored sus pension of ! other firms. This sent the market off %o. Later it rallied and at 1 o'clock the close was 96%0 bid, sellers at D6J£o. On call there was a stronger feel ing, caused by eoine heavy local buying, the denial of the trouble in Wall street , and reported heavy sales of flour at Min neapolis for export. Very light receipts were also of an assuring nature. McCormick, K^nrieU & Dny say: "The bears are nervous to-uight, and the ad vance is mairiiy clti6 to their eSort3 to oover. We thin loua to sell May wheat at ihese prices, although the crowd are talking 90c. It. may go there or even lower, but crop I improved de mand will cause an upturn first." A. M. Wright & Co.: "Tiiere were few sn?taining iufiaeuce* ex tept in small receipts, the inspection showiug only G9 oarsj and this had little significance lis regards interior supplies as the Bcaroity of storage here^. has in duced some of the largest graio carrying railroads to deolii ( to bring it when con signed to elevator?. Crittenden& Harvey: ''We look for wheat to sell considerably higher before long, and believe judicious buying on weak places anywhere around to day's prices will pay well. Our stocks urn large, but show signs of being rapidly reduced if we are to credit the improved export de mand for wheat as b« '.board points and large sales or flour at Minneapolis for for ward delivery." Wheat receipts 7 cars winter and 62 oars spring; shipments 28,324 bushels. A steadier feeling has ruled to -«. ay, the undertone being better. The market has not made any material change, but there is less distrust and probably more of a feel . ing that our market ma-it be nearing the bottom. Another drop in stocks weakened us down to 95% c for May, which was not as low as the market went Saturday. The closing was steady on curb at 96^0 and the feeling rather firm. Cables were conflicting. The majority, however, re ported foreign markets as closing heavier. A fair line of shorts has been covered to day for New York account, aud with a lit tle outside encouragement and improve ment in financial affaire east, it would not be difficult to stirn pa good deal of a bull feeling, as many "regard present values as being very low. Corn sympathized very largely with wheat. Still it had some apparent strength from its friends. It opened firm and made an advance of %o, but when wheat broke it also went off. Jack Cudahy and Adams were buyers of large quanti ties on the break, and when the stock scare had spent its force corn rebounded with a considerable amount of vitality and on the curb closed strong at %a over the lowest pricGs of the day. ~Ski«:3fclorr> :k>'V t^-siahi*..- "Some hn'l circulated a report that a deal in May corn was contemplated and begun, and this has held the market. We are in a position to know that no sensation was ever farther from the truth, and we would advise —if advise we shouldthat corn is a good sale on every bulge. A re action is, however, in order, and everybody I expects it." •Provisions are very strong, and packers seem to be quietly buying them on every weak soot, one of which occurred to-day when grain went down. The market, how ever, soon regained its strength. May pork closed at .$15.35; lard $9.05. . A con fidential circular Bafts: "Provisions opened! strong and advanced along the whole list quite sharply, finally closing stiong at the best price of the day. There are no new features to report. Outsiders were almost the only sellers, while the packers picked up all offerings and made no effort to bull the marKet. Receipts of hogs are coming too light to admit of much decline at present, and for the time being we think buying the softest thing to do. Pork shows most activity and strength, but lard is relatively cheaper, and will fol * low along in sympathy. Receipts of hogs 17,000: estimated for to-morrow, 25,000. • The receipts of cattle were somewhere near 3,000 less than last Monday. For the few goodshippin;: cattle on sale there was a Bharp demand and an advance of 10 to 150, and for the common and half finished oattle that were barely salable last week, buyers had to pay considerably higher prices. Good butchers' stook was also firmer. Only a ligut business in stockers and feeders on account of the small num bers on sale. Light reoiepts was the only cause of the advance. Had the run been as heavy as last Monday, values would have immediately ruled lover. The general advance may hs reported at 10c to 150, and about all cold. A commission firm of long and prac tical experience, and extensive trade, send the following to their customers this week: "The quality of cattle arriving continues below the standard of good snip ping and export grades, and while this class has been readily taken at fair prices as compared to last week, other claese3 have suffered a decline of 20@405, and it seems as though feeders were determined to ccc how soon they can get rid of this stock regardless of quality or price, creating something of a panic among dealers in the lower grades of light fresh stock.and although prices are about 250 p6r 100 higher than last year, the supply and quality almost duplicates the corresponding week one year ago. There has been a general depreciation in all classes of product as the cry of short crops began to subside, and it is now quite certain there will not be a famine in anything this year. There is a good cause for a reac ion m the trade, yet we still hold to the fact that good fat stock will sell considerably higher than last year." Speculators opened the market this morning, the first rates showing a sharp advance. In the Buningtou division they generally out bid packers for best heavy. In the Northwestern division the packers bought the bulk of the hogs. For some reason, only kiowa to them3«lves, the speculators wt>re holding off in that division during the morning. Receipts were between 12.000 and 13,000 less than la6t Monday. Under a light run the market opened with a sharD advance of 100 on the best heavy p.nd best assorted light, with ppeoulators the principal buj ers at the opening. Later packers bought freely and perhaps finally got their share of the fresh receipts yet both packers and shippers were compelled to buy of specu lators it order to gjt anything like the number they wantsd. About 20,000 were on sale. Receipts about the same as on last Monday, ranch to the surprise of many. The best sort of sheep cold higher than on Saturday. Among the sales were 105 western at an average of 94 pounds and sold for $4.87J£; a choice lot of nearly pure Gotswdids, a large per cent, of wethers and lambs, 94 in all, aver aging 140 pounds, at $5.75. The salesman selling the liittar declared he could only get $5 25 bid for this iofc on Friday and Saturday. According to private advices received by W, T. Baker & Co., of this city, tha winter wheat crop maintains p. vary hi£h average) and, with the exception of a few points in southern Illinois, New York and Tennes see, is doin^ as well aa could ba expected at this season of the year. la Kentucky and Tennessee the ground is quite bare of snow, but north of the O"io river, from Kansas to Ohio, the wheat, as a general thin;<, is well covered. The crop, however, was generally sown i^te, and ia many quarters fears are entertained of its iinal outcome.

A break in Manitoba to 86 was the first dis turbing feature. Later came a drop of 2 per cent, in Northern Pacifio preferred and before noon the better stocks were about as feeble as their less valuable neighbors. The market was very active, with a well distributed business. There was free sell ing of DeLve during the afternoon, and it was very weak. Mr. Gould appeared to be disposing of Southwestern. The feel ing was feverish, and the bulls seemed to be much demoralized. Canada Southern fell to 47 in the last hour, having opened at 50. Bears in St. Paul talked a reduction in the rate of the April dividend, and Wabash was spoken of as likely : to go into the hands cf a receiver. The feeling at the end was better. Stocks rallied a lit tle, and there was an improved tone to the market. Still there ware few sufficient ly sanguine to express a belief in any, prominent advance right away. The week opens with the bear party iv" full control of the market. The Uoraniack brokers sold 10,000 shares of St. Paul at the opening, accompanying it with the report that the next dividend in April would be passed. Northwestern ejnlpa ; thized in the weakness and at the same time the G mid force* w£re " weak.

Belling 2.000 shares sel ler 60, 1,000 regular and 1,000 cash, West ern Union continued to be supported, being bought every % down.

It requires as ranch bravery to make a prediction about the stock market a3 it does to lead a forlorn hope in storm ing a fort. But without any regard to the values of properties, it will be very strange if there is not ft sharp rally in a very short time, simply on the short in terest, which is immense. Lackawanna &■ Western earnings for six months ending December 31, net $1,173,400. Today's sales of stock on the New York stook exchange amounted to 455,000 share?. The day's market waß reviewed by Henry Clews & Co., as follows: "Tie stock mar ket opened, continued and closed feverish. About 11 a. in. the bears emboldened by re ports of large selling orders from London and Amsterdam, made a eavaoje drive at Denver, St. Paul, Northwestern and Mis souri, Kansas and Texas, which stocks suf fered < he worst shock during the stampede then created. The principal large buying daring the day was to cover shorts. The strength in the Vanderbilt stocks proved a sustaining influence, and did muoh to held the general market from droppiDg to lower price 3 than those reached. There were no prejudicial ru moM floated during the day on the street. The infloences brought to bear were more than usually of a natural character. The main cause of the present gloom over Wall etrefct is attributable to the want of confidence, as might be expected from tbe fri^htfrl lepses entailed after the collapse of Villard'a NorthernPaoih'o scheme, West Shore pnd its appendflgea. Gould is evi dently annoyed over the rumors circulated about his position on tbe stock market and his financial condition. His friends say he is the strongest man in Wall street, as regards cash means, to-day, and that toere need be no uneasiness about his standing and ability. It was intimated to-day that Gould would probably make another public exhibit of hia historic tin box, and that a committee of backers would be requested to examine its con tents. A prominent trader predicted that the box would Hhow among other things $30,000,000 of Western Union, $15,000,000 of Missouri Pacific, $20,000,000 of Kansas and Texa3 Pacific, and a large amount of Wabash and Union Pacific. Gould, it is said, ie determined to prevent the Wabash from fa-lling into tho hands of a receiver." The Wall .Street New regards "The spec tacle of Mr. Gould blotting out couj! tions, pooling ngraements and traffic arragenjcmiß in the hopes of Btemming the univers.il liquidation which is now progressing intensely ridiculous. The people have lost a great deal of inonoy by faith in these during the past two years, bat most of them will do so no longer. Mr. Goal a is as powerless to prevent liquida tion new aa the old woman was to keep back the tide with her broom. This is a year where investors are trying to dodge receivers, and we Jhave a dismal idea that Mr. Gonid has as much troable to keep some of his properties out of the way of them as anybody else." Gould Going for the Libellers. | Special Telegram to the Globe, I New Yokk, Jan. 21.—Mr. Jay Gould was asked this evening if the report was true that he had decided to proceed legally against the per sons vrho originated the rumors that he was financiall euibarraesedy. "It is true that I have done so," ha replied, "I am advised that under the penal code they have committed a crime for which they can be punished. The statement that they are to be prosecuted is, however, premature. i n that I preferred that nothing shoald be 6aid about the matter et present." Mr. Gould was asked if it would not be diffi culty obtain evide-.ee against the person re ferred to. He said he thought not, as he had all the evi dence desired. He could not say whether the attention of the grand jury had been called to the matter, but not as yet. He had, he said, simply put the matter in the hands of his counsel with instructions to bring the offend ers to justice. Mr. Gould then went on to say that it was not so much on account of attacks upon himself that he had done this, bnt more on account of the companies in which he is in terested. Their credit had been assailed, he said. "There is Wabash, for instance." he con tinued, "which they insist is in a , bad way, when every one knows that we have just cleared off its floating debts and it is in as good condition financially as any road in the country. The same is 1 rue of Pacific. The immigration . along the line of this road is simply marvelous. We haven't cars to ha u die it, A large part of the present decline is artificial, and has been ex pedited by the circulation of just such stories as th-se, which have induced people to par' with their stocks at a loss who will regret having [ done so when they see them forty per cent., or | more, higher again. It is to protect these peo ple who have put their nvney into these and otber companies that I p-opose to try to put a stop to the circulation of these reports. Mr. Gould was askot: who he believed wera the originators of the raports referred to, but he declined to say who they v^ere, except that they were short of stocks and resorted to these methods to depress prices. As to reports of his own insolvency, he said that the fact that he was nor, l-ofrowing money of a single bank or trust C";rij.;iny ought to be a sufficient answer, if auy wer.i --eiied. "I presame I could borrow a great dtal of money from any one or all of them," he said, "if I wanted to, as my collater als will pass in any bank at par, and under those circumstances they would as so«n lend to me as any one." —■ THE ENGLISH GRAIN MARKETS. London, Jan. 21.—The Mark Lane Ex press, in its weekly review of the British grain trade, says: The weather is mild; damp and foggy. The autumn crops are not too forward, but if this mildness con tinues they will be premature, and the spring growth is anticipated. The wheat crop looks well, but the position begins t1 assume elements of danger. Values are declining, except for choice, perfect sam ple9. t lour is cheaper. Malting barley tends upward. Foreign wheat is dull and declining, Maize is cheaper. The new crop of mixed and American has turned out to be of inferior quslity. Round maize to-d-y is 61@ls cheaper; of cargoes off coast, there were four arrivals, two withdrawn and two sold, and four re mained. Cargoes on passage met with little attention; their values are nominal. The ealeß of English wheat for the week were 58.670 quarters, at 33@393 per quar ter, against 54,997 quarters, at 40s for the quarter of the corresponding week last year. Creditors M»k« a Mistake. I Special Telegram to the Globe. 1 Miles f^rrr, Jan. 21. —It is becoming very apparent that the creditors of C. W. Savage have made a great mistake in u«,t accepting his offer of a compromise. He is very papular with the cattle men, ar.d that is all the trade there is here. Now that the establishment is to bo closed out by assignee or the sheriff or both, there is no incentive to 6ecu c trade and the prospects are that the creditors will secure a good deal less than fifty cents on the dollar.
