lease was contested.

Tlic latest reports from Southern Illinois note
(hat the winter-wheat looks splendidly, and
promises a floe crop thus far.
The leading produce markets wore moderate
ly active yesterday, and moi;c Irregular. Pro
visions were again rather weak, aitur the tlrst
call, while breadstulTs averaged firmer. Wheat
was strengthened by private advices of an ad
vance ot od(slH per quarter in Kngluml, and to
Ibis was added the recognition of Hie possibility
that Western Europe will roluso to receive any
more grain from Uuesla till the plague Is stayed.
Corn was stronger, in sympathy, and outs were
linn, white rye tended upwards, and barley was
steadier. The receipts ot grain were below the
recent average in quality, and those ot hogs
only moderate, with a poorness of quality re
ported which tended to bear out Use theory
that the hug crop is nearly exhausted. Wo
note that Tallmadgo & Lindmau, ot Milwaukee,
estimate that three-fourths of the wheat sur
nlus of the Northwest lias already been mar
There was a moderate movement In staple and
fancy dry goods. Pew buyers were present, but
there was a fair volume of mail orders.
Groceries were.quoted as before. Trade was
satisfactory, and prices were uniformly well sup
ported. Putter remained rather quiet, with
prices leaning a little in buyers’ favor. Cheese
continues in liberal request, and for line grades
there is continued tirmness.' Dried fruits were
in demand at previous quotations. Pish con
tinue to meet with a fair inqulrj*. Prices are
firmer. In the canned-goods market there were
no chances. Oils worn quiet and unchanged.
Most kinds were llrmly held. Leather, tobacco,
bagging, coal, and wood were again quoted
The lumber market was steady under a fair
Inquiry for commou grades. The pineries of
Wisconsin and Southern Michigan have at last
been supplied with snow, and it is expected that
log-hauling In those sections can uuw proceed
without interruption. The demand fur wool
and broom-corn continues fair in tho aggregate
at the current quotations. Hay was weak, ex
cept‘Gnu grades, which arc salable,but not
plenty. Hides wore cosv at the lute break,
deeds were more active, clover being stronger
mid timothy and choice flax Arm. The demand
for green fruits was ngum good, being chiefly
local. Poultry was steady, the eupuly being
rather light, and the city buyers took all the
best stock. Eggs were tinner.

CATTLE—'The course of yesterday's market was
a surprise to the trade generally. Instead of the
dullness and depression which a majority luut
looked for, there was an active general demand
and a tlrm set ol prices. Tlic nilemlanco of buyers
was os numerous as on any day of late, and, al
though the supply of stock was Urge, there was
nut a hoof In excess of the demand. Exporters,
shippers, feeders, and focal buyers ull took hold in
uood earnest, and sales were quick utlullyTucs
day’s prices, or at $2. 5003. 50 for pour to good
butchers’and conuers* stud, at 82.7503.05 for
common to prime stackers, and at $1.0004, HO fur
fair to choice shipping steers. Exporters wanted
choice to extra beeves at it. 7505. 50,
though there was nothin? on sale good
enough to command the latter figure,
blocker* were in active request. Feeders irom
East and West were ptesont m goodly numbers,
and sales were cllcctcd at higher figures than have
heretofore prevailed, good to prime lots Hulling up
to $3. 75. wlille poor to ordinary droves were
salable at (2.7503.25. A choice lot of blooded
youngstccrs, averaging I.ODI lbs, was sold by St.
John & lirown to on Onlo feeder ut 54.40. They
wore raised by uavld Gomlle, Oswego, 1)1. Wo
mention the sale as showing the dlllerence In (lie
market value between blooded and native cattle.
. Considering the heavy supplies of tho past three
days (lU.ooohead), prices have held up surprising
ly well, though hint much longer It can withstand
the unusimlstrain is a question that Western ship
pers will do well to give llicir very careful consid
eration. The market closed steady.

HOGS—The 'market was dull and lower oil
around. Tho receipts were comparatively light,
but a further decline in provisions caused puckers
to hold off, and. In the absence of the usual com
petition, sellers found It Impossible to sustain
prices. Opening sales wore at a reduction from
Tuesday's prices of 10c, und ut tlut decline the
market remained weak to tho close. Too ooovo
applies to all grades except extra heavy, for which
thuru were buyers at very full prices. Of thu day's
sales fully ouu-half wore to shippers. Common to
best uacon grades soul at $3.7503.85, ami pour to
extra heavy lots at $3.5004.15. Thera were vorr
few sales at over S4.(JO. Conover A: Hull sold a
car-load, averaging hill lbs. atgl.lD. The aver
age quality of thu receipts was low—about the
poorest of thu season.
All sales aro made subject to a shrinkage of 40
lbs fur piggy sows and 80 lbs for stags.
