Grain and Provisions.
Chicago, Jan. 29. Var rumors caused
on advance of c to lvic In tho price of
wheat today. Part of tho advance was
lost on prollt-taking, but tho close was
firm with May ?ic higher than yester
day's final llgurcs. Corn closed with a
gain of 5c for May,, Oats aro up c
Provisions aro unchanged.
A sharp bulgo occurred In wheat at tho
opening, due to reports that the crisis in
tho Far East was not far distant. These
reports wero given emphasis by higher
prices in foreign grains, Opening quota
tions here showed May o to l?ic higher
at 90c to 91c, with July lc to lc higher
ut S2c to S3c Buying orders came large
ly from shorts. For a time thore. was
little wheat on the market. Tho leader of
tho longs, howover, took the selling side
toward tho end of the first half hour and
was Joined by smaller holdors, with tho
result that prices declined abput c for
the high point. May steadying around
CGc and July at S2c Tho market lost
Its onorgy and ruled comparatively dull
the remainder of the day. Long wheat
continued to come out on an small up
turns, but tho demand was equally good
on every reaction. Tho market was helped
by Argentine strike nows, small receipts
and an Improvement In cash demand tn
the Northwest. May closed at 907TWVtC,
after It had sold down to U0c July fin
ished at S37JS3',4c Clearances of wheat
and our equal to 002.100 bushels. Primary
rucelptB wero 119,200 bushels, against 522.
439 bushels a year ago. Exports for tho
week according to Bradstcets of wheat
and Hour, were equal to 2.90S.O0O bushels.
Minneapolis. Duluth and Chicago reported
receipts of 253 cars, against 200 cars last
week and 302 cars a year ago.
Tho Influences which governed the
wheat market were factors In tho corn
pit. After opcnlns c to c higher at
50c to 5C4ic, May sold between 60c and
G8c, closing at fO'ififiOc. Local receipts
were 215 ears, none of contract grado
Oats wero strong throughout tho etitira
day. May opened V,c to higher at 42-&c
to 42c, sold between 4245r421,c and. 43c.
closing at 13c. Local receipts were 71
Packers wcro moderate sellers of pro
visions and thero was further liquidation
of lard by bull hoi!: ox. In spite of this
selling and In the f,u,r- of lower prices at
the yards, tho market ' Icldcd vrry little,
closing practically at jcitorday's pries
Buying by commission houci s and shorts
on the strength of grain was the main
supporting feature. May pork and lard
closed unchanged at 513,32 and $7.42.
Ribs were a shade lower at 4G.70.
Estimated receipts for tomorrow;
Wheal, 15 cars; corn, 200 cars; oats, 85

International Mercantile Association
Summary of Business Con
ditions. Iew York, Jan. 29. Telegrams re
garding the state of trade from cor
respondents of the International Mer
cantile Agency throughout the United
States are summarized as follows;
"In the Central Mississippi valley and
throughout the Southwest, business in
most staple lines promises to exceed that
of the opening months of 1903. General
wholesale orders for spring trade this
month in that region are said to be
heavier than in any preceding January.
More than 115,000 wage-earners have
gone back to work in Pennsylvania and
the Lake region within a fortnight
"Extraordinarily easy money markets
are not likely to continue much longer.
Early ratiflcatio nof tho Panama treaty
would mean probable payments to Pan
ama and the canal shareholders. As It
stands, the Government depository
banks might have to furnish $25,000,000
of the funds needed. Overhanging new
capital issues will also tend to advance
"Olllclals Interviewed Insist that steel
rail prices will not be cut and point to
the Interest of the Pennsylvania rail
road, through Its steel mills, to keep the
price up and to light rails being $2
higher. Despite pessimistic reports as
to iron and steel, the demand continues
to slowly increase, notably for struc
tural steel and basic and forge Iron.
"Prices have been stronger for cattle,
ruUber, coffee, cotton goods, raw cotton,
wheat and corn. Not the least encourag
ing feature of the business we,ek has
been the renewed confidence In a pros
perous season, due to an Improvement
in collections. St Paul, Minneapolis
and Duluth unite in reporting as largo
volume of orders as at the like period a
year ago. The situation is even more
favorablo than that in the Ohio River
valley and through the South Atlantic
and Gulf Slates."
Business Outlook Is Reported
Bright by the Commer
cial Agencies.
New Y'ork, Jan. 29. R. G. Dun & Co.'s
weekly review of trade tomorrow will
Business conditions would bo most sat
isfactory if present high prices for tho
leading staples wcro the result of whole
sale demand, but tho prominence of ma
nipulation prevents any gratifying con
clusions. Aside from tho lines temporarily
stimulated by severe weather, trado Is
qulot, and evidences of Increased activity
with the approach of spring aro hope
fully awaited. Reports of tho building
outlook have been prepared by branoh of
fices of R. G. Dun & Co., at the leading
cities, and Indlcato that high cost of ma
terials and labor have curtailed opera
tions, although tho year 1903 showed a
good gain over 1902. Demand for lumber
Is gradually improving, stocks in the yards
arc light as a result, and attractive prices
promise a large cut. Weather conditions
aro favorable for winter wheat. Trans
portation has suffered some Interruption
by dorms, but railway earnings thus far
reported for January arc 3.S per cent larger
than In 1903.
Optimistic reports aro not numerous
regarding the iron and steel Industry.
Comparatively quiet condition's In hides
have not depressed tho tone.
Failures this week numbered 302 In thu
United States, agalnBt 213 last year; and
25 In Canada, compared with 30 a year
Now York, Jan. 2 Bradstrcet s tomor
row will say
Weather conditions have been unfavor
able throughout a wide area, and, w'llle
In somo Instances helpful to retail trado
extremn rold or heavy snows have rathr
sharply chocked spring trade and retnrded
trariHportatlon. There is a rather quieter
feeling found also In several lines or spec
ulation and of Industry. An exception to
this is found in thu South, which section,
stimulated by almost undreamed of cotton
prices. Is preparing to plant an enormous
acreage. ,
Spring trade, which was opening actively
in the Southwest, has been brought prac
tically to a standstill for the time being
by zero weather.
Rather less satisfactory reports come
from tho Iron nnd steel trade. Building Is
practically suspended at a number of
cities, and lumber Is generally quieter.
Wool is firm, with a steady vomme of
business at Doslon.
