LOUIS AND CHICAGO GRAIN MARKETS TAKE HEAVY FALL Heavy Selling by Commission Houses Caused a Break of Neatly 5 Cents in May Wheat at St. Louis. Heavy selling by commission houses caused, a break of nearly S cents a bushel In the price of May wheat in yesterday's local Brain market. Whil- considerable excitement attended tho slump, the trading was not so wild as it might have been had It been less one sided. Professional interest did not attempt to check Ihe decline, but rather encouraged it. Thta was explained by the statement th.it most of the big longs got out nearly a week ago., when the market was well above the dollar mark, and that since then values have been well maintained by eleventh-hour bulls of the amateur class. Many of these outside operators wore not strongly intrenched, and their holdings were sold out when their margins were exhausted or their stop-loss orders executed.. One of the prime factors in the decline Is Said to have been the lack of the kind of "war news calculated to make a war market. Most of the outsiders came in on the chance that there would be quick developments, which would cause one or more of the European nations to take part In the conflict between Russia and Japan. For several days legitimate market con ditions, meet of which had a bearish tinge, were Ignored. A strong sentimental basis for bullish operations was afforded by reports that France had violated her neutrality. This statement was not of ficially denied until after it had had con siderable effect in stimulating outside buy ing. Prospects of trouble In the Balkans also had much weight with the same class of traders. After an advance to 5I.02i;, a reaction pet in last Friday. There were occasional rallies when new crops of outsiders en tered the market, but the general tend ency was downward. Yesterday May wheat closed with offers at 94c, compared with SSTic at the previous day's close. The low point for the day was 92&c July also declined, but this option showed more inherent strength than May. Tho range was from S9c to S75ic, with more offerod at the latter figure. May com also was under selling pres suro down to 47c. which was ?ic below Monday's cloee: BOODLE CASES SET FOR APRIL TERM. Proceedings to Compel Payment of Docket Fees Dismissed by Supreme Court.

Enormous Liquidation Dragged All Speculative Markets to Lower Level in Chicago Armour Unloaded. nnrrni.ic sruciAU Chicago, 111., March 1. The dead weight of enormous liquidation dragged all spec ulative markets to a lower level to-day. The skyrockets were touched off last week. The blackened sticks are falling fast now. War news Is out of the ques tion. It is Paid now that wheat receipts were enlarged everywhere. Fancy cash prices of last week worn like a dream. Three days the country heard nothing but public buying. This is a stampede to aave profits or escape further losses. Wheat broke 21- io 4 rents to-day; May to M'.i. or 12H cents off from the J1.03 mark. July broke to 3'. cents. The top was 995i cents. Corn lost 2 cents to-day for all months. Patten. It was thought, surrendered his bull position, sold May oats by the mil lions, and the price broke 3 cents or more. Most of all in loss of fortunes was been In a further break of about SO cents a barrel In pork. 40 cents in lard and ribs. The liquidation by all classes of holders was heavy to the close. Great operators had to bend to the selling storm. Step by step, point by point, the country traders, the "bears," fought the "bulls" and forced don n the prlres. Then, when the struggle waged fierce-t. J. Ogden Armour, leader in the buving of wheat during the bull movement, began to pour forth his wheat. The market sank steadily . under the tremendous offerings. Tho other grain markets, affected by the selling in wheat and by foreign advices that told of low prices, fell in sympathy and the downward movement was on to stop only with the close of trading. Unmistakable evidence was given at the opening of the market that the sentiment had compiettly changed from its recent bullishness. Long wheat, bought under the belief that the war would be sure to spread and prevent shipments of wheat from Russia, was for sale in large quan tities owing to the change In general op tion in the latter respect.

France, and New Orleans has now given three per formances of grand opera at Music Hall. Four or Ave years ago, to be pure, he brought his company to the same place for a number of weeks, hut it is of this season that the present discussion runs. On Sunday night ho presented the diffi cult and not altogether lovely "Jewess," a dramatic rather than a lyric produc tion, that appeals, in a ppotty way. to the Instincts that yearn for outbursts of vocal bigness. It was easily a success, that opening performance a success In face of the fact that "La Julve" has not been of popular appeal In this community. On Monday night M. Charley sot closer to his audience. He fared forth with the ever-delightful "Carmen." sung with a completeness that Is seldom found on the opera stage in this city. There was noth ing omitted, and, for some of the audience, "Carmen" In Its entirety was seen and heard for tho first time. The famous old numbers the grand-stand performance of the bull fighting Senor Escamllla, the cachuca of Carmen, the many love plead ings of Don Jose and the single entreaty of Micaela all were done with the spirit of art the something that tells the audi ence that here are men and women who would sing and act their best If not a soul sat In front to hear. What If someone slipped the pitch or It another's voice failed utterly on a given note? the sincerity of the performance brought one to overlook the lapse. There is a phrase, for Instance, In the song of the Toreador, a certain difficult passage that the barytone of the occasion could not master. In other places he was sure of himself. His confidence of himself In that passage in which Mr. Bull Fighter describes his successful assault on tho un fortunate Mr. Bull was surpassing. One could almost see the scrap. His soft allu sions to certain dark-brown eyes or some thing equally fine were captlvatlngly done. Then he struck the difficult passage. He ran up to It, Jumped over, and In an Instant was back again on sure ground, as smiling as If nothing had happened. The audience made the big chap sing the song four times. Each time ho had the same difficulty, but his sureness elsewhere and his confidence that he was pretty good and that ho was doing the best he knew carried him straight into the welcome of his audience. And Carmen?- I've seen prettier, but never one more earnest never one who seemed to realize more fully what she was about People run to crazes. Up to the moment that Calve gave a new swing to the dramatic side of the part all Car mens were alike, and most of them, craze apart were Just about as good as Calvo's. Certainly, Minnie Hauk, of many years agone, would have been another Calve had she been fortunte enough to scare up a craze In her behalf. But that's neither hero nor there. The Carmen pf Tuesday night Mme. Glanoli's was a rattling good one good in voice, good In conception, and great in earnestness. Art Is the thins well done. Sometimes we fall Into the mistake of calling the prod uct of a great gift by the name of art. These French people are nearly all artists, though few ot them are gifted. I have heard better voices a score of times but I have rot often seen a better pre sentment of the material at hand, the Gallic resourcefulness, the saving of the loose ends, the utter absence of waste. Last night the tedious "Huguenots" was the opera. A better selection might have been mnde for Tuesday. The vast group of principals is impressive to the manager, but the absence of the greater lyric tendency of more popular operas some times sends the audience nodding. Not so last night The evening throughout abounded In ep isodes of tonal beauty, but for sheer vocal and histrionic excellence the second act. and especially the duet ot Raoul and Marguerite de Valols must have most praise. Not that the voices of the princi pals blended as well as might have been the case had we had a Melba and a. De Reszke before us, but M. Charley's prin cipals wero, as always, Imbued with tho spirit that Improves a flne occasion with an exhibition of self-sacrltlce and self-effacement. Mme. Duperrct-Mlkaelly has a high, blrdllko tone and excellent coloratura equipment, and Herr Meyer von Beer knew how to write a score for "Margue rite" that would put a clear flrst flute on Its mettle. Madame understood thor oughly what the Herr had aimed at'ln that second act: Italian florid colora tura passed through the medium of Ger man musicianship and German tonal poetry music rather than vocal gym nastics. Tho lady has queenly presence, much style for which the French stago Is always ready in exploitation and her singing revealed the added merit of case. Her familiarity with the music was a delight and after the duet, when the ex cellent prima donna, Mme. Gulnclian, came on as Valentine, another element of peculiar strength was added to the act Nor must one forget the amiable, grace ful and volceful Monsieur Labrlct as St. Bria. Last night Benjamin Adklns, Water Commissioner, was a delighted auditor. "I havo always devoted mxfelf to grand opera when occasion offered,' said Mr. Adklns, "and I feel that I may qualify as an expert on this occasion and deliver an opinion to the effect that this season the Charley organization Is one of the most Impressive I have ever known. I have heard many Marcels, but I feel sure that I havo never heard one who. for rich ness of vocal equipment and art of por trayal, surpassed to-night's performance by M. Lusslez. Perhaps the caviling few with long memories will say that the elder De Reszke made this Parisian gentleman look like 30 cents, but Tm willing to have someone disprove the statement I have Just made. And as for Madame Gulnchan, Elio est absolument magnlflquc. Elle chante comme un ange." This evening we arc to have that de lightful old baxrel organ opera (positive ly 'no reflection Intended), "II Trovatorc." And we aro to have, also.

Aside from the fact that It was the first New York oerformance of this portion of Tolstoi's trilogy, and was in Itself one of the most Important events of the dramatic season, the peculiar Interest that is now attached to things Russian attracted a noteworthy first-night attendance. The play is laid in 1SS4. tho last year of Ivan's life, when the Iron will, the superb arrogance, the masterfulness and splendid physical attributes which earned for him the title of "The Terrible" were begin ning to break under the menace of open and secret foes, of plots, the cares of em pire, the loss of possessions and his own furious excesses. In Ivan Mr. Mansfield has a character which calls Into play all his versatility. The transitions from the groveling, super stitious, stricken old man to the superb anger and towering passion of the mon arch will stand out as one of Mr. Mans field's most remarkable accomplishments. Mr. Mansfield was supported by a more than adequate cast Miss Ida Conquest was Czaritza Marie and the part of Boris Godunoff waj in the sage hands of Arthur Forrest.
