Minneapolis Chamber of Comnieice. April 16.
Lower I renoh cables and an easier tone in
Liverpool thtcw off tbe wheat market this mor
ning in all American markets But the de
linos were slight and weie contested by the big
Chicago long, who was said to hare given sup
port to the extent of buying a considerable new
line. In Minneapolis the May option was 7iy
at the opening, selling to 74&C. then to 74 U
on a quick dip, and back to 74%&74-k<. The
Minneapolis-Chicago spread widened another frac
tion and. with Chicago May 77%, Minneapolis
May was 74',sc. a 2i spread. Beneficial rains
fell oe France and theie was immediate effect
in Paris, this decline finding prompt response in
Liverpool. Broorohall cabled that the better
weather in France has weakened Liverpool and
that there were advkes of favorable weather IU
Argentine, coupled with an estimate by Broom
hall's Aigentlne agent that shipments this week
^rv111 run to 2.440.000 bu, against 992,000 bu last
year. From Berlin direct came cable advices
to the effect that the Herman rye ciop is doing
nicelj, but the winter wheat will have to be re
eeeeded over a considerable area Our own
country showed a prospect extiemely favorable,
the wet and lold weathei having given way to
warmer and brighter weather everywhere. At
Kansas City, Atchison and Omaha it was re
ported clear and bright. There is no change
in tbe promising position of the wheat crop, ac
ordlng to advices to the Trice Current. Oats
seeding has been further hindered by rains. The
'parly sown seed is starting well. Owing to
delayed plowing much corn will likely be late
In planting. The grass crops are favorable and
the movement of old grain rather moderate owing
to farm work.
Toward noon Armour was back in the market
driving in the market shorts and the Chicago
wires said lie had bought over 1,000,000 bu in
May and July, principally July.
Primary receipts were 236.000 bu. against 297 -
.OOO bu. and bhipments 527,00 bu. against 403.000
bu. Minneapolis had 110 cars, against 139, and
Duluth 1 car, against 14 cars.
Minneapolis stocks have decreased by 900,000
bu.
Duluth had some export inquirv and reported
about 25 loads taken. New York had good ex
port demand, worked 14 loads early and reported
a larger business in prospect.

The cash maiket was active. There was
not much wheat on sale and the offerings were
oo cleaned up. No. 1 seed sold at 2^c over
Mav for the avpiage and No. 2 at l'/ic over foi
a good part. All the wheat sold well, including
the low grades, but the demand was especially
good for tt'C No. 1 and No. 2.
THE FLOUR MARKET
STRENGTH OF PRICES THE LEADING MAR-
KET FEATURE.
The irlc tendency is firm and prices are very
strong a* quoted. Millers leported no change iu
the general situation and demand fair to good.
They report however, that the higher quotations
had the usual effect to cause many buyers to
hold aloof, and so the market has been reported
dull at times. Nevertheless the total volume of
eales shows up well

ment at the start and May was off Va(^l%c.
opening at [email protected]%e, with July [email protected]%c to
v [email protected]%o lower, at 71%@71H. The early trad
ing was rather light owing to poor support, but
later a fair demand developed from local trad
eis and a rally followed. May advancing to
77'/8C, but the firmness was not maintained, the
prices again declining to 76%c. July was rela
tivelv stronger and held steady around 71]y^c.
Minneapolis and Duluth reported receipts of 111
cars, which, with local receipt* of 14 cars, none
of contract grade, made total receipts for the
thtee points of 125 cars, against 224 last week
and 207 a year ago.
Trading was rather quiet later in the day, and
prices held fairly steady, but during the last
hour a sharp rally occurred on good buying by

ness in wheat, together with disappointing

rid of the May delivery, which was off %@%,
at WsSM-t'ftc. Commission houses were heavy
sellers of May and some of yesterday's local
buyers were also on the selling side. Under
these influences May declined to 43%c, where
a better tone was manifested on a good cash
demand, with small receipts, only 62 cars being
received, with none of contract grade.

A NARROW OPENING
But the Stock Market Soon Shakes
Off Its Hesitancy and Ad
vances.
Buying Diminishes and Prices
Sagged at NoonBonds Were
Firm, but Dull.
Close
New York, April 16.Stocks started to move
In an irregular manner this morning, but the
majority were lower. Metropolitan Street Rail
way lost a point and Southern I'dcitlc and Brook
lyn Transit %. Manhattan opened % down, but
immediately recovered.
There were small gains by Missouri Pacific,
Norfolk & Western, Reading, Sugar and a few
minor stocks.
Business was active during the early dealings,
but the pi ice fluctuations foi a time were verj
narrow. The steadiness of Manhattan had a re
assuiiug effect and the market shook off its
opening hesitancy and rose shaiply. Pennsyl
vania, New York Central, Baltlmoie & Ohio,
Missouri Pacific, St. Louis & San Fiancisco, St.
Paul, Amalgamated Sugar and Leather preferred
developed the most strength and gained [email protected]
points. Buying of Pennsylvania was In laige
blocks after it crossed 135. Metropolitan Street
Railway recoveied nearly all of its loss, but
Metropolitan securities advanced almost a point.
The demand slackened at the advance aud prices
receded a fraction.
Little stock was offeiing on recessions aud re
coveries were easy. St. Louis & San Francl&co
rose nearly 4 ]otnts and Sugar, Amalgamated
and New York Central vos cl% to 1% points.
Railroads In eastern territory, including the
trunk lines and coalers, seemed to be favorites,
but tbe Atchi&on stocks. North-Western aud
Kansas City Southern were lifted a point. The
buying diminished and pi ices sagged slightly
again before .noon. Bonds were hrm but dull
at noon.
A few active speculative favorites, such as St.
Paul, Union Pacific. Baltimore & Ohio and Read
ing, made additional small gains, but the general
list -was quiet and uninteresting
Sentiment was quite cheerful, owing to the
broad character of the day s, strength and the
absence of any pressure to liquidate. American
Telephone and Telegraph dropped lO-'i- Consoli
dated Gas. Erie second preferred, Louisville and
n few others were Included in tbe one-point
gains.
Traders sold Amalgamated down over a point
from the best on the announcement of the declar
ation of only tbe usual dividend. The stock then
rallied. Anaconda lost a gain of 3V*. and other
stocks yielded fractions Business then became
semistagntint. but the tone was better at 2
o'clock. Consolidated Gas rose 2^.
After another peuod of hesitation the market
turned strong again and rose to the best of thu
day. Baltimore &, Ohio. Pennsylvania Norfolk
& Western, New York Cential, St. Paul, Noith
Western, St. Louis &. San Tranclsco second pre
ferred and Sugar extended their gan.s to 1%

NEW YOBK COTTON, April 16Tbe cotton
market opened steady at unchanged prices to a
decline of three points, with the direction of
prices subsequently directed by local influences
until May had made a decline of nine points.
July a decline of slv, August and September two
and October ten points. The bull pool operated
to check any further upward movement at this
time, the New York market of late having
worked toward a level calculated to attract cot
ton here from all parts of the country, and even
from Liverpool. A private cable stated that
shipments from Liverpool to New York were
already in progress. The local market had a
weak undertone toward noon, cables being in the
main disappointing. Houston estimated receipts
