movement ■■•'*. little premature, because we have hod
scarcely enough ytotk since then to meet the requite
merits of the trade, and the feeling at the present writing
Is rather firm Of course, tbis Is only momentary and
due to !<n expansion of the trad--- and some falling oft in
supplies. The weather has been cold and backward, and
there has not been the Increase In production that was

h-,.1 market is in quite firm position, though prices un
changed. Many of the cheese arc still arriving green,
having been shipped close to the hoop. Quite a good
many lots are also SSiowlng defective, quality and such
have to be cut deeply to attract attention. Skims have
had a fair demand for moat all grades from good useful
quality upward, and. with supplies not large, prices have
ruled steady to nrm. especially on the higher grades.

CHICAGO GRAIN AND PROVISIONS.
Chicago. M.iv 18.— Wheat prices broke sharply to
da--, following a substantial bulge early in the
session, when the May delivery touched a new
high record mark for the- season— sl 30 a bushel.
At the close prices were He to 'Sic below yester
day's final quotations. Cora closed fairly steady,
oats firm and provision* weak.
Th« wheat market displayed decided strength dur
ing the first half of the day. and prices advanced
more than lc above the previous close. May inci
dentally rising to » 30. which is %C above the
previous beet mark for the season, established on
April 15. During the final hour, however, senti
ment became extremely bearish, and prices receded
IV- to 2 l «c from the high point of the day The
July delivery appeared greatly congested during
the' early trading. A leading elevator cc-neern was
an active bidder for that option, and the total pur
chases credited to that Interest during th« da
were estimated at fully 1.C00.000 bushels. There w«9
also considerable covering of . short lines for th
account of a firm which went into the bands of a
receiver yesterday. In addition to these influences
the market derived strength from an advance of
i ..1 to I'-.l at Liverpool, due. it was said. tr> un
favorable crop reports from Russia. Germany and
Hungary. General rains throughout Kansas and
Oklahoma appeared to have been ignored at the
start, hut. were undoubtedly Instrumental In a large
degree In causing the elurnp late in the day Th*

July delivery by cash interests caused bullish sen
timent in the corn market early In the day. Much |
of th« demand for the July option. It was claimed,
was for the account of the firm mentioned above |
which was in financial trouble. The market was j
also bullishly affected by reports of Offal accept
ances in the country. In the final hour the market ,
lost much of its buoyancy, mainly in sympathy ■
with the break in wheat. During the day the July
delivery sold between 6S*ie and IB 7 »c The close
was about steady, with prices fee lower to V
higher than the final quotations of the previous i
session. July being at 6S^c.
Oats were strong all day. notwithstanding the ,
severe break in wheat prices. Independent strength
developed during the final half of the session on |
buying based on unfavorable crop reports from ',

active. The market closed strong, with prices Me
to %c higher than yesterday's close.
Provisions were weak the entire session, owing
to profit taking brought out by increased receipts
of live hogs at Western packing centres. The close j
was weak, at net losses of 7*aC to IT^c. compare*
