Moderate Activity in Discounts

The Produce Markets Active and Irregu*

Close Pastor,
Wheat Excited by Weather News-
Other Grain firmer in
As usually happens on a rising market, there
was a move Active demand from both largo and
small buyers for Government bonds. Trans*
actions were mainly in 4 per cents. The Os of
1881 advanced %, to 100}%; the 5-20 sof 1807 were
•103; and those ofl8C3102%; thclO-iOa 101%; U.e
5s of ISSI advanced %, to 104%; the 4%s were
steady at 101%; ami the 4 percents advanced
%i to 00%. There bos not been much demand
ns jet fqr the $lO certificates, except out of cu
riosity to see them. A correspondent of the
Cincinnati Commercial writes:
I saw in Lane is llodloy Company's shop, In a
frame, two $lO certiorates, showing both aides,
■urmonnted by a placard: * ‘ How to save money ) n
small sums am) got interest for it. Itay $lO certifi
cates, which bear interest at 4 per cent per annum.
They can bo obtained at the allies. M
No bettor method can be found for Introduces
these than for the Treasury Department to placard
ahops, mills, largo stores, etc., In this manner.
Of course the offer to supply them at offices is sim
ply an accommodation, though one which proprle
.iors generally will bu glad to extend.
The supply of bills in the foreign exchange
market was slightly larger, 'in Chicago sterling
grain bills were 454#* and French bills were
522%. The actual Chicago rates for sterling
were 480% and 4SS%. In Now York the actual
rates were 480% und 488. The posted rates for
sterling wero 487 and 489. French bankers 1
bills were 618% and 516%.
Consbls opened at 07 5-10, and remained there

Bank of Germany shows In Us weekly statement
of yesterday a decrease of $4,150,000. The rate
of Interest at tho Bank of Bengal, In Calcutta,
was yesterday raised to 0 from 8 per cent.
Chicago bankers reported a moderate miscel
laneous demand for accommodations. The call
rate is per cent, tho current time rate [email protected]
per cent; some small transactions are made at
[email protected] per cent. The currency movement Is not
large, la or out. Bank clearings were $2,900,-
/ There was between dealers n sale of West
Fork bonds at 104 and Interest. Cook Count?

; Tho stringency of the money market yester
day lu New York was largely artificial. Tho
bond settlements aru progressing with such
success as not to Interfere aporeclably with tho
money market except through manipulation.
The cosh payments on $20,000,000 of bonds set
tled lor last week were less than $500,000. On
total redemption In March of $50,000,000 the
cash payments were $5,000,000. On the settle
ments of $80,000,000 duo this week it Is expected
that not more than $2,000,000 or $8,000,000 cur
rency will be used. The disbursement tbts week
of 84,000,000 Interest by the Treasury Depart
ment und tho ordinary return currents of
money that set back to acw York after the New
England and Interior Now York settlements of
April 1 will relievo the situation lu Walt street
of Its stringency.
Stocks were dull, and the anticipations of aa
improvement la prices ou account of tho better
prospects of ’the money market were not ful
filled. Compared with the closing prices of
Wednesday, Michigan Central declined %, to
8-4%; Northwest common, %, to 51%: the pro
terred, %, to 86%; St. Foul common, %, to
40%; tho preferred, %, to 79%; Illinois Con
trol, %, to 62%; Union Pacific, %, to 7?; Eric,
%, to 25; Wabash, %, to 19%; St. Joo pre
ferred, %, to 44; Western Union, %, to 100%;
St. Louis, Kansas City & Northern, %, to 7%;
Kansas Faclfie, %, to 20%.
The coal stocks were exceptions to the down
ward movement of the day. There are pur
chases of these stocks by pood buyers, who look
lor uu Improvement, based ou the better out
look of Lite Iron manufacture, the export of
coal to Europe, and a generally better condition
of business. Delaware & Hudson advanced %
to 41tf; Lackawannal>4» to-lOJ*; and Jersey
Central to 40)4.
Northwestern gold bonds wore 108)4, St. Paul

Alton earnings for tho fourth week of March
show an Increase of $1,582, ami from Jan. 1 to
April 1, on increase of $87,287.03.
Erie Is pulTcd vigorously by the Now York
papers. According to the Oraphfe, tho recent
activity In Erie In the British market Is attrib
uted to manipulations by George Crouch and
bis friends In thu London Stock Exchange. D.
P. Morgan Is also In London, and It Is thought
ho will also take n flyer In Erie. The New York
Jfvenltift J’vtt Bays:
Tho not earnings of tlm Brio Hallway for tho
month of March are reported to have exceeded
those of lost year about S3OO,ODD. Tne nut earn
ings for tho six months are given nt 82,700,0(10,
this including the litnu of the snow blockade, which
cost the Company In extra expenses and loss of

property has of late become so largo in this coun
try that the least tho olllcluls can do Is to publish
regularly every month thu gross earnings and ap
proximately the nut earnings.

There appears to bo little reason to doubt
that some parties bare contracts out to carry
groin from Western lowa to New York at 05c
per 100 lbs. Tho lowest rates heard of from
points beyond Dcs Moines to Chicago Is 22c,
being a rebate of Sc off 25c, which only leaves
13c between this point and New York, without
reference to cost of transfer, If any. Of
course people who can secure such terms of
transportation are able to outbid tho mon who
furnish capital to mass the grain on the lines of
railroad tmd hold It. there daring tho winter.

The leading produce nvarkets wore active yes
terday, and generally firm, breadstuffs being
stronger. The snow-storm of tho previous day
was followed by a cold spell, and this nourished
fears of a late summer. Tho chief point, how
ever, was In wheat, as affected by the weather
of the past. Tho. British markets were quiet,
with firm holders, hue the news came from fit.
Louis that an advance of Cc per Im bod occurred
there since tho Ist lust., with largo buying or
ders from the Interior. This was supposed to
mean that residents of Kansas ami Western
Missouri are becoming seriously alarmed at tho
absence of rain, ami buying In self-protection.
Now York was privately quoted 2c higher on
winter wheat and 1c higher bn spring, and this
was supposed to. bo Independently a result of
reported damage to the growing wheat
further East. It Is not probable that
the winter wheat Is all killed off,
and it may be that tho danger Is exaggerated,
but there appears to bo no reason to doubt that
a good deal of tho winter wheat Is lit a critical
condition. Other grainwosstrongorlnsympathy,

ard sheetings and shirtings, prints, acnlras, and

to note in connection with the grocery market.
A continued liberal demand was reported and
the steadiness of prices was undisturbed. Dried
fruits were active, with opplcs, peaches, black
berries, and prunes held with decided firmness.
Fish were In fair request, and remained steady
us previously quoted. Nothing now was
developed In Utu butter and' cbecso
markets. The tendency la both of
these staples is to an easier elate. Tito demand
for oils was of liberal proportions ttnd prices

Thu lumber market was again reported active,
with prices running about as they have done for
some time past. A few cargoes of dry stuff
were offered at the sale docks, and purchases
wore made by some of tbo yard-dealers whoso
stocks are broken. The receipts are expected
to bo small for a week or more, the cold
weather having arrested the thaw, mid
postponed the date of opening the
principal shipping points a few days.
The wool, hide, amt salt markets were unchang
ed In their most important features. lluy was sala
ble to tbo local trade la small lots, but outsido
orders were scarce, and prices wero easy without
lielngquotably lower, tseeclswcroqulctondweak,
except timothy, which sold rather more freely
than on the preceding day. Green fruits were
steady. Poultry was firm, and eggs brought
belter prices.
Kali freights arc nominally 20c to Now York,
25c to Boston, 18c to Philadelphia, mid 17c to
Baltimore for 100 lbs of groin; but there Is rea*
eon to believe that the bulk of the grain now

of the above-named rates.

Kbit York, April 3.—The Public to-day con
cludes its estimate of the foreign wheat market:
It says more than 01,000,000 hu will bo required
by Kuropo from Russia and the United Stales,
of which Russia will not furnish moro than
50,000,000, unless it had nnoincr extraordinarily
large crop In 1878, following that of 1877. This
would leave about 46,000,000 bu to bo drawn
from this country. If these estimates arc cor
rect, the price of wheat must advance.
lIOQ PRODUCTS—Were actlvo and Irrcgnlar;
the market was strong early, Liverpool reporting
an advance of Hd in lard andOdviu long and short
clears, whlls the local hog mantel was higher.
Dot prominenlholders of product were free sellers,
and when this became known buyers fell back for
lower prices, the later feeling being tame, but the
afternoon prices exhibited some Improvement.
The greater freedom In selling was supposed to
bo based upon the summary of tho winter's work
in packing, as published In yesterday's Tmni'Nß.

There was a better demand fur futures, partially
owing to the belief that a good deal of thu corn

snipped Kantward around us during tho winter,
without being repurchased in this market, and
that, although lomo ot those sales iiavo oecn at*

CATTLE—Thoro wore altogether too many cat
tle on eato for the good of the market.* Ono*balf
the number actually received would have been a
fair overage run for a Thursday; consequently, that
the market should develop an easier tone was to bo
expected. At (ho opening the situation was most
discouraging. The attendance of buyers was as
largo as on any day of late, but In view of the
heavy supply thoro was a general bolding off for
lower prices, and the forenoon was well advanced
bufaro any considerable number of cattle had
crossed the scales. Toward noon, at a reduction
from Tuesday’s prices of G®loc, trade picked up,
and from 11 o'clock until 3 trading was brisk, a
largo number of cattle changing owners between
thosu hours. Tho quality was an Improvement on
the recent average. Thoro were more fat cattle
tlmu have been seen in (ho yards on any previous
day of tho season, and the reported sales show a
higher average of prices. For export cattle there
was a well sustained inquiry, and for extra beeves,
such as are taken tor tho English market, (nero
were havers at as good figures as were paid ou tho
day before. About 400 head were thus disposed of
at 85.00ii5.36. Among the prominent sales were
2U head averaging 1,504 lbs, ut $5,25, by 11. E.
Mallory dellro.. and 14 head averaging 1.551 lbs,
at tho same price, by Gregory. Cooley JB Co. A
lot of lowa*fed Montana cattle were sold by
itosonbauiu. Uuss <k Co. at $4.75. Tho demand
was chlotly centered In good to choice grades, and
the bulk of tho day's trading was at $1.3004.00.
Ktockcrs were in demand at and
butchers’ and canners* stuff at $2.00(04.00. Tho
