The Tendency Marked Towards a High er Range of Prices. i LIVELY DAY ON WALL STREET Astonishing Bise in the Pi ice or Oregon ami Nor/hern Pacific CHICAGO. ial Telegram to the Globe.] Chicago, Jan. 28.--The shorts are un easy: the longs have become confident. Thissumm ced the situation about the wheat hree dayß now there have been firmc. ■■■■ higher cables. Prices have been iew York, p.nd actually a cons'Jc mint quantity of grain has been taken :•.-. for s.hipmejt. Up to the middle--. ek the best efforts of the best grain operators could not keep the price of wheat up here. The situation now is such that the best efforts of the best operators do not avail to keep it down. There was this morning a very lir^o volume of trade. There were some very strong bears t-nll'mg, like Jones aud 1/ mn. There were, besides, other very large sales by people who had bought their grain lower and who were satisfied with their profits. In this clasp were the Adamses. The prico of wheat advanced and closed at 1 o'olock vi<s above Saturday's figures. It was a mag nificent day for scalpers. May opened at 98.>-,'•», fell to 97*fc, then advanced steady and close! at 99j£c, tho tog figure. "There are very few," said a broker, ''besides local operators in the market yet. The outsiders have not become interested. They went in last December expecting a January boom. It never came, and they departed after having dropped their money. The present bulge is occasioned altogether by the ohanged attitudes of a few of the big local traders. Lester, for instance, has chauged from a seller to a buyer. The Adamses changed soirle time ago. There is little prospect for a safe bull movement, however, until the out siders come in a3 buyers. The present soft weather has had some little influence on prices. This is always considered a critical period for winter wheat. The country is," said he, generally covered with snow and this is a favorable circumstance. A thaw, however, at this time of the year, followed by a freeze would be likely to cause damage; would at least set afloat alarming rumors. Alarming rumors about the winter wheat would be enough, togeth -3r with the unsettled state of affairs ibroad, to put up the price of wheat." The trading about the corn pit waß 3m?.11. "I do not believe," said one man, 'that 1,000,000 bushels changed hands this morning. With i-o little trading and good fair receipts, prices weakened a little." May corn opened at SSo, fell to 57^0, but closed at 55%9. Receipts were 481 cars. Provisions acted like wheat and under the same influences. Cables were higher and the demand at New York better. Brokers reported the oash trade good. May pork offered at $15.95, dropped to $i 5.85, and closed at $16.17};,. May lard opened at $9.22 14 and closed at $9.35. Receipts of hogs aggregated 17,500. There is little doubt but packers are bullish and firm in purpose not to sell exoept at an advance. It is certain, too, that southern and for eign buyers are advancing their figures. Among the gossip current here is a 3tory that Jack Haver! y ia Bhort 500,000 bushels of corn at 58c, through \ well known New Yorker who is here, but when at New York spends his evenings with Haverly at the Fifth Avenue hotel. Daring the day private cables were contra dictory, but seemed on the whole stronger. Ihe Adams crewel, it is conceded, has sold j vast quantity of long wheat reaching into the millions of bushels, but the market absorbed it easily and advanced. The market was a little de2d on call, but an the whole strong- Provisions -reached i good d jal higher. May pork closed at $16,27},, May lard $4 52>£. Wheat and corn, however, did not hold out. May wheat stopped at 99}^'@99i^o. May lorn at 58V£a. Big traders were not in market on a great scale. Poole, Kent & Co. were selling wheat. So was McGeoch. Swartz & Dapee, Robert War ren, Lindblom, Comstock & Baldwin were juyers but not in large blocks. The mar mot appears to even up. The course to norrow will depend apparently upon the veather and cables. Receipts of cattle and hogs were about !,000 more than for the corresponding day ast week. Ths market was slow and )rioes 25@300 lower than last week in nedir.ui to fair fat cattle, 30@4Qe lower in lommon and half fat cattle, w«ak and ending lower in batchers' itock. which is in heavy 'upply, fully 40 per cent, of the arrivals >eing canning arid butchers' stock. The general market was dull and weak, and folly 10 per cent, lower than on Saturday. Buyers instead of skirmishing about the paras as they did last Monday, were loiter sg about tho exchange building, quite in liffereci as to what pas going on about. Hogs are about the same as a week ago. rrade and prices are dull and lower, in nany oases 10 par cent, below the current prices of Saturday, and from 20 to 30 per sent, lower than the highest of Friday last.

Chicago Financial. [Special Telegn.ni to the Globe. | Chicago, Jan.2B.— Banks report quietness in their line. The demand for money is moderate under the influence of a good supply. A 1 paper is a welcome article, and passes readily at 6@7 percent. Occasional loans on call col lateral are made at 5^ per cent. Eastern ex change between city banks was quoted at 60c premium per $1,000. The bank clearings were $66,69,000 against $5,837,000 on Saturday. Tho outgo of currency is light. Schwartz & Dupee received the following from Henry Clews & Co. this evening: "The market opened buoyant, influenced by a tele gram sent from Omaha by the general manager of the Union Pacific stating that tho Utah &, Colorado matters in dispute had been settled, aud that there need be no apprehensions of the dreaded war of rates. Time would bring a aettlemeat of their troubles on a fair basis. The railroad stocks distinguish ed themselves by a renewal of their old dme ac tivity, and proved by several wonderful acrobat ic feats that they have considerable vitality left yet.

This severe erratic action i o frightened the \xmr> th;:t. they fled panic stricken in all di rections. While the general leudtnoy of the market should be upwards, as we have recently foreshadowed, still it has bef>n a decline 100 long to have strength in its recovery to make the ascent all at once, a-d can only attain the sum mit by a gradual approach and not by 6uch a spasmodic and unnatural advance as was at tempted to-day, and which, if often repeated, can only re3ult in exhaustion and final relapse. NEW YORK. 1 Special Telegram to the Globo. j New Yobk, Jan. 28. -The ex-Villards were the center of attraction at the open ing and continued a prominent feature throughout the day. From the first hour there was a steady advance with out any special excitement until Oregon Navigation appeared and rose 5 points at one quotation, followed by an other advance of 11 points, cash, making a total gain for the day of IU points, or 21 since Friday. It was seen that this stock was praotically cornered, and soon loaning rates for the day were 8 per cent. There was also a difference of 1 per cent, between cash and regular in Northern Pacific pre ferred. The bears, mindful of the ex perience they have had heretofore in these stocks, ran hard for cover, and the advance was continued until the last hour, when there was good selling by prominent large bear houses seller GO, and also regular. Granger stocks were strong ail day on a dispatch which Mr. Gould was said to have received from Mr. Clark, of the Union Pacific, saying that the railroad matter was entirely settled since the Chicago meeting. Our information is that no set tlement has been made, but everything is working favorably towards the desired end. Vanderbilts were stronger and Michigan Central quite active. There are a number of stocks loaning at a premium, and shorts are likely to be pushed still further. At the same time we believe in following out the programme we laid down Friday, when we advised our friends not to be short of the market, but to sell on rallies. We feel like selling it now. Northern Pacific earn ings the third week of January increased $14,200; Chicago & Alton $9,700. North ern Pacific was bought in under the rule by manipulators, and was a mere farce, as the stock was selling higher at the time in the regular crowd. On any sharp reaction in St. Paul, Union Paoifio and good stocks we would buy. THE ENGLISH GRAIN MARKETS. London, Jan. 28. The Mark Lane Express in its weekly review of the British grain trade s3ys: The weather is rough and the wind and floods did serious damage.

The following is the letter, headlines and all: MINNESOTA POLITICS. 'JOLLAP?;-: OF THI DYNASTY WHICH CAME INTO POWiiE DUUINQ THE WAB. HOW THB OHABMED CIJJCLIi WAS BEOKEM — AliDiiNT DKSIBE FOE A SENATORIAL, VACANCY. K.EVIEW OF THE CONGEESSIONAL DISTIUCTS — THE STATE CEETAIN TO KETUBN FIVE REPUBLICAN CONGHE3SMEN. Sr, Paul, Minn., Jan. 24.—[Special correspondence to the Chicago Tribune ] — Ever since the defeat of Senator Wisdom last year there has been a very unsettled feeling among the republican politicians of Minnesota. I do not refer to th&ir feeling towards the Democrats, for that is not an element which cuts any particular figure in Minne sota politics; but I allude to the resent ments among themselves. Fortunately the Republican strength in this state is so great that we can quarrel among ourselves bat come up smiiing with a party victory in any event. The present turmoil in Minnesota poli tics arises from the fact that tho state ha 3 been blessed with a political dynasty. This dynasty mightJUmost be said to have been "a war measure." It had its founda tion the first year of the war, and was largely based upon the patronage which the war gave the governor of the state. Ramsey was governor, and hi 3 lessons in Pennsylvania politics enabled him to found a dynasty which has only recently been broken, and which even now is striv ing to recuperate. Gov. Ramsey wa3 the senior representative of this so-called dynasty, and Mr. Windom grew to be junior. Ignatius Donnelly was one of the origi nal members of the dynasty, but the party was not quite large enough for both him and Ramsey, and Mr. Donnelly got out side of the traces. The success of what I might term, for lack of a better mame, the Ramsey-Win dom dynasty, led to great tranquillity in Minnesota politics. I', vas generally con ceded that that dynasty was the regulator of political fame and fortune, and henoe aspirants for position first made their peace with the head-centres, and thus became part of the dynasty them selves. As all new fish were caught in the same drag net, it did not leave muoh room for a disturbance. THE FIBST BBEAK. The first absolute break in tranquillity was about eight years ago, when Senator Ramsey failed to secure a third term in the senate, and Judge McMillan was elect ed in his stead. The defeat of Ramsey was due to a bolt from the party caucus, which was largely occasioned by local jealousy of Minneapolis toward St. Paul. Senator Ramsey has always resided at St- Paul, and Minneapolis concluded she was competent to furnish a senator in the person of W. D. Washburn. The only result was the defeat of Ramsey and the selection of McMillan who is also a resi dent of St. Paul. Senator McMillan is a concienlions man, and aims to do what is right and honorable in every respect. I scarcely need to add after this state ment that he is not successful and popu lar as a politician. Iv fact, he is net a politician at all. He has built up no po litical following, and when he was elected the second time his friends kept him in Washington because they knew he would not lie or make false promises to secure the office. Hl3 election was due the manipulation of politicians who did not want to see ex- Senator Ramsey restored, he (Ramsey) being the leading candidate to McMillan's second term. THE SEAL BBEAK IN THE . CHAEMED CIBOLE. I have given you thi3 protracted story to show that the real break iv the "war dynasty" in Minnesota did not ooour un til Mr. Windom, the junior m«mber of the cabal, was gathered to his political fathers last winter. As McMillan bailt np no po litical faction, the Ramsey coterie hocked to Windom, and when he went down aad Senator Sabin came to the front there was a smashing of crockery. Senator Sabin is every inch of him a poli tican. He is adroit, genial, plausible and popular. In short, he has "more wheels in him" than any pnblic man who has ap peared upon the Minnesota carpal, and that is why matters are a good deal tora up. The old crowd, who for nearly n quarter of a century have held undisputed sway in Minnesota politics, are being rele gated to the back pews nnder the gallery, and the new element, who are now the elect, gather in the front slips right close to Senator Sabin's rostrum. Hence there is only one thing that can now be counted certain in Minnesota poli tics, and that is that the state will go Re publican. The senatorial contest now be ing waged will not affect the result so far as national politics is concerned. THE DESIEE FOB A 6ENATOBIAL VACANCY. If, as now seems quite possible, Senator McMillan should ba appointed to fill the vacancy created by Judge McCrary's resignation, it would be d»ae to the efforts of his enemies who wish to create a vacancy in order to secure the senatorship. The "pressure" for the appointment does not come from Senator McMillan or his friends, bnt from those who have the lightning rods np for the senatorial posi tion. There will be great disappointment among the aspirants if the senatorial vacancy does not ooour. THE CONGBE3SIONAL DISTBICTS. The disturbed condition of political affairs in this state will crop out very forcibly in at least three out of the five congres- ional districts.jlu tn.6 Srst dis rict, where there is a reliable Republican majority of from 4,(<00 to 5,000, Hilo White only managed to squeeze in by t a beggarly 500. This was owing to the Dunnell- Winom feud—a feud which still exists with this difference: That Mr. Windom is in private life and out of the fight, leaving his old camp followers to go their own gait, while Mr. Dunnell, who is also in private life, is aspiring to return, and is personally active in rallying his forces about his "lost cause." It would be a very possible thing to se<* Mr. Dunnell defeat Milo White for the nomination for con gress in the First district. White's majori ty in a strong Republican district was to Bmall that his party is afraid to nomi nate him, and if he should be renomina ted it would be solely due to the old Win dom faction, who have no love for Milo White, but who do not want to see Dan nell on top. In the second district everything is serene. J. B. Wakefield, the present in cumbent, is not a brilliant man, bat ha is what is termed in politics a "good fellow,*' and has hosts of friends. As he is now serving his first term, he is sure of a return without opposition in his own party, and it is quite likely, as the ca?e is so hopeless, he m?v not have a Democratic opponent at" the poils. The Third district is graced by Mai. Strait, who has a pretty happy faculty of "getting there" in spito of considerable opposition. When M.ncteota had but three congressmen he was twice e'ectea and once defeated by a Democrat. There have never been b it two Democratic mem bers of congresf from Minnesota since Fort Sumter wt.s fired on, and Mr. Puepler, who defeated Maj. Strait, was one of them. When the state gained two more distriotß Maj. Strait came up smiling again. As this is his fit at term in his present district, he is quite likely to pull through once more, but it is not im probable he will have to fight for his tom ination. In his district, like tho others a nomination is equivalent to an election. The fourth (Miune-Pual) district is quite a complicated affair the present year. This comprises a portion of what was formerly the third district under the old apportion ment, and embraces, as far as it goo?, the territory made memorable by the great Washburn- Donnelly.fight. It includes St. Paul and Minneapolis, which is sufficient to ineure a first cluss rumi>t's. W. D. Washburn has served with ability and satisfaction for three terms, but, either as a matter of pol icy or because he is satiated, he has pub lished a letter declining to be a fourth termer. Mr. Washburn resides in Minne apolis, and Lore:. Fletcher, a wealthy mil ler and lumberman^ has assumed a sort of right of inheritance to Mr. Washburn's successor. Mr. Fletcher ranks a3"K6en" in politic*, and so he is, but keenness is sometimes overdone. He was speaker of the house when Windom was defeated, and was one of the original leaders of the Windjm movement. He was probably honestly loyal to Windom at the outset, but when the Sabin boom was inaugurated he became cool towards his first love. The name of the sper.ker was called last in the joint conventicn which elected the senator, and on the last and critical day in the con test there was a little pause between the call of the upeaker's name and his vote. The interval was occupied by the speaker leaning o,rer his Gcak and asking one of the tally clerks how the vote stood. Upon ascertaining that Mr. Sabin's election was secure, his response rang out clear and stronger, (a little louder than usual), "William Windom." This made his vote consistent on the record. The story got out on him, and the old Windom crowd were disgruntled, while the trhumphant Sabinites did not give him credit for aid, so, between two stools he finds some chickens coming home to roost about these fdays. In spite of the "little story" I have given Mr. Iletcher has been getting along right swimmingly with his canvass. He has had a Minneapolis news paper interview all the prominent men of that city, and has secured a very general declaration "in favor cf Fletcher." There has been a little quiet talk about W. R. Merriam, vice president of the Merchant's National bank of this city, being a candi- ; date, but he is quite young and inexperi- j enced in politics and Fletcher has regard- j ed him with a sort of "shoo fly, don't j bodder me" air. A NEW COMPLICATION. But now a very serious complication has srisen whioh strikes Mr. Fiether &11 in a heap. There has sprung up a formid able movemont in favor of Albert Sheffer, of this city. Mr. Sheffer is cashier of the , B*.nk of Minnesota, and it would be no exaggeration to say the most popular man in tfae state. He is f-trong personally, politiovlly, socially and business wiee, and if he couid be induced to accede to the wishes of his friends, ho will make Mr. Fletcher's contest for the nomination any thing but a rosy one. Mr. Sheffer has always < alien a great interest in politics, though he has never held an office. He was a straight Republican un til 1872, when he supported Horace Gree ly, and since that time has occupied an independent position politically. He took an active part on the stump in 1882 in supporting Knute Nelson, the Republican member of congress from the fifth dis trict, and was one of the most effective workers outside of the legislature in be half of Senator Sabin'a election. Ha is, therefore, in short, with the reigning des tiny, which counts a great deal in securing a nomination. It is certain Mr. Waehbarn is giving no aid to Fletoher, Rnd it is hinted he i 3 in favor of a St, Paul man forcoDgress, as he (Washburn) wishes to be governor or sen ator, or both, at no distant day, and hone? it would be convenient not to have too many Minneapolis men in office. Until tnisj Scheffer movement was started Mr. Fl6tcher counted that he had a regular walk over, but he now realizes that doubt ful things are very uncertain. Since Mr. Sch6ff*r's ne.me has baen canvassed Mr. Fletcher, who is making a personal can vass, find 3 people non-committal. While he was in the field apparently alone it was tn easy matter for time to secure pledges of support, but now he frequently meets with absolute refusal cr a qualified pledge of support "incase Al bert Scheffer is not in the field." There is another marked difference. Mr. Fletcher is conducting his own campaign in person. No one else appears to b6 taking any par ticular interest in affairs, while the Scheffer movement is a sort of spontaneous affair, inaugurated without consultation with him and even against his wishes. It is not known what he will do in the matter, bat his friends assume that he wiil not decline so high a mark of popular an d public esteem. It makes the* contest one of decided interest, and what seemed like a olear sky for Fletcher may prove a per fect cyclone in the end. MUSIC IN THE FIFTH. The Fifth district was made memorable in 1882 by a triangular contest. Nelson and Kindred on the Republican side and Barnum on the Democratic made things musical. Neleon is a Norwegian and, a* his countrymen are numerous in the dis trict he won the prize. There are all sorts of rumors afloat about the campaign this year. It is gener ally understood Kindred will make a con test for the Republican nomination, and if he does the Fifth district will be lively again. Mr. Nelson has the advantage of being in possession, and he will make that count, but Mr. Kindred is popular, energetic and wealthy, and will make things lively among "the boys." A cam paign in the Fifth Minnesota dlptrict has all the free and easy elements of the west ern sytle of politics. There is no standing on ceremony or courtesy, but it is "spit on your palms and wade in." Out of all this tnrmoil, present and prospective, you can set down Minnesota as certain to re turn five Republican congressmen, and give her eleotoral vote to the Republican nominee for president, wnoeverhe may be.
