Chicago. April 2.-Xew hi) lecord marks for
the season for all deliveries were established in
the wheat market to-day, when the May option sold
up to 1121 and the July $! v-, The new high
point for May was within 'jc of the best price
touched during the celebrated Gatfs deal in l9oti
The market closed strong, with prices ■■„ to '?r
lower to %c to ie higher, compared with the pre
vious close. Corn, oats and provisions also closed
Rail; from a rather weak tone at the start,
the wheat i^arket became exceedingly strong and
prices were forced beyond the high point of the
season recorded on the previous session. The ma
jority of traders In the pit expected a reaction from
the high prices which prevailed yesterday, iind in
this respect their expectations were realized, as
the market opened at declines of l c to ' 4 c to 'ie
to Sc. The weakness at the start was due to the
heavy tone of European markets, particularly that
at Liverpool, which vaj bearisl affected by un
expectedly liberal exports for t!'e week from Ar
gentina and Australia. Leading hulls Rave thft
market good support early in the day, and a firmer
tone soon developed, which became stronger as
the session advances!. More crop damage reports
were received, which helped to strengthen the mar
ket, but the chief reason for the buoyancy was con
stantly Increasing demand for cash grain, i'as!i
sales of 100.0U 1 "' bushels were closed here, and a char
ter was close, l t.i ship 100,000 bushels more -it ill
opening of navigation. St. Louis and Kansas City
also reported brisk bidding for the cash grain.
From $1 19%, the l"\v point at the opening, the May
delivery advanced to f\ . '. while July sold up from
J] ('Tip t<. fi os-V There was some reaction late in
the day. owing to profit taking, but tlie market,
with the exception of th~ December delivery, in
which month there was very little trading, closed
firm. Final quotations on Ma were at $1 and
on .July at J. OS to SI OS 1 *
The corn market was helped materially by t!i«*
bulge in wheat and by the popular bullish senti
ment prevalent in the pr.iln markets fjeneiHlly. Til"
deferred futures w>re relatively easier than the
May option, which was In good demand nearly all
day by leading bulls in The wheat pit. Wet w.-ather
In part- of the corn belt was responsible for much
of the demand for May. The close was firm nt net
pains of i.c to «4r« 4 r to a s c. May being at 67V- and
July at C6'~2C to t",6- B r.
<>ats exhibited considerable strength, l.ems influ
enced by the advance in wheat ami corn. There
was a genera] commission house demand for the
May delivery, while local shorts bought ih- de
ferred futures owing to the strength of the nearby
option. Tyical receipts were small and prices at
the sample tables advanced ' 2 c. The. market closed
flrm at n-t pain? of ' 4 c to \c to >.-, with May at
."w^c to &'. ssc,5 s c, and July at 4<n Isc1 s c to i&\ t c
Provisions were e.isy early in the day because of
realizing by local holders, but became stronn later. !
Trade was native nearly all day. At the close
pric*s wen 2 ! iC. to 5c to 15c higher.
Activity in r.ew building operations is one sitjn
of Imsiness revival. This gives riep to a con
siderable .-Irmand' for structural products, a fact

19"S and $3,145,705 more than In 19"6. although
considerably lc^s than In l<<"7. Exports continue

in Important basic trades, with the tariff ptlll
under discussion In Washington, the final vote
being some time distant, it Is not Purprislng that
there is plainly manifest a hesitation about mak
in»r commitments long in the future. Neverthe
less business confidence is on the rising ti.le. a
fact reflected in the strength of the se.-uritv
market, which, so far as it !.«■ free from manipu
lative Influences, is often a pood prophet. The

The agricultural situation oml the agricultural
section': of the .-ountry aie stronper than the in
duetrial and mercantile; and this is true not
only in the promise which domestic crop condi
tions hold out. but ii!s<> in preset;! market f;ict-irs.
Wheat prices have been carried to new high
levels. The railroads continue to make >m ex
cellent showing, all things considered, and report
an increase of 7 per cent over 19"S for three
weeks of March, a percentage „f jj ; ,ir. more than
duplicated by the hank rlearings. The statistics
of business failures for the first three months of
the year wlien critically examined reveal the in
rreased power of American business t<> recover

with the agricultural centres <,f the West.
P.radstreet's pays:
Trad-- and crop reports nrp Irregular, and busi
ness the country over Is still quiet as a whole.
There are. however, evidences of a. growth in opti
mistic feelinK. partly due. no doubt, to mote spring
like weather conditions, expansion in retail trad*
due to this and to ihe advance of the Kaster Reason;
the opening tip of spring activities in outside in
dustries and a higher level of stock and commodity
prie<-s reflecting speculative discounting develop
ments looked foi In the future. Current demand
ot wholesale Is of a between-seasons character an<i
fobbing distribution is confined lnrge!> to filling in
"orders, hut there is reported in several markets
a disposition !<> take hold more freely for next fall.
tall demand hns expanded where weather has
permitted, and Easter trade so far Is classed as
fair to Rood. The crop situation .-;tlll lacks form,
with ■•.■•■• outlook rather spotted.
There is- talk of winter LiUlriß In pan of the
wheat belt, and tlie absence of rain in Texas is
reported to have had serious effects. In the mass
of conflicting reports it Is only possible to titf'ire
out that winter wheat conditions are not much
different from what they ... in December, hut it
will he recalled that the condition Mien was very
low and tin area planted reduced Farm an«l field
■work tlie country o\er if? a little inter than normal.
Rerorts from leading Industries are n«i materially
different from last week. tVasre reductions are
more numerous, but strikes are not frequent. In
iron and steel there is more business reported, but
midently at the .... of prices'.

' I.UAIN — WHEAT -The upward course "• v^ h«at
pricer. was continue! to-dnv. iltlni In another set
of rerorrle on May and iii! at New York. R»n izinc
took place n»ar the close howewr. su that fln:il
Drices. olil:ous!i HO We over tlie Drevious nicht. were
a little 'under high point of the day. The pronounced
strength of cash wheat in the Southwest and a re
newal of unfavorable crop advices in some sections
of the belt chiefly explained the strong upturn In
the market. At ilie immediate opening there was a
show of weakness, following larger Argentine anil
Austral shipments than expected, hut supporting
orders were present '« large numbers and prices goon
rallied. It was reported that a group of Me traders
were operating at Chicago through a leading commis
sion house, making" the market exceeding y nervous
and promoting wide fluctuations in prices. Outside
interest has become a conspicuous feature of all grain
markets in the last few days, stimulated by the bull
ish news regarding supplies and crop prospects. The
"Modern Milter" had a lest favorable report, stating
that the condition of winter wheat was generally
lower than the high average of a year ago. It was
announced that next Wednesday at 1" o'clock the
government report oa winter wheat condition would
be issued instead of at ■-■ o'clock as has been the
custom, a change In time that met the pentjral ap
proval of the trade The Liverpool market closed
partly >;d net lower, 1 Bueni d by the Argentine
shipments of 3.505.000 bushels, compared with 3..112.
000 bushels the previous week and t1.216,000 bushels a
year ago. From Australia the weekly exports were
1.456,000 bushels, or about th- same as the week
before. There was a decrease .of 1.200.000 bushels in
the Argentine visible, which brought the total down
to 1.720.000 bushels, or 4.500.000 bushels less- than
for the corresponding week last year. Complaint was
made that Argentine wheat was grading poorly.
Wor d's shipments for the week were estimated at
8.213.000 bushels, compared with 5.304.0410 bushels a
week ago. Cash wheat at New York closed as fol-
Inws, no business being repotted for export: No - red.
