The ,4 Per Cents Weaker—Foreign
Exchange Dull.
Quiet Day Among tlio Chicago
Banks—‘Stocks Stronger.
Tho Frodnco Markets Active and General
ly Stronger—Hogs Lower—Pro
visions Oloso Tame.
Wheat Excited, with Fears of a
Squeeze—Stocks of Grain
in Store.
There wa* loss activity in Government bonds,
and the 4 per cents showed some weakness. The
day before tho asking price in Now York was
lOl'l. but It wss not. held yesterdav higher than
HW>£. In Chicago, the fl* of IBSI were 10GJ4 hid
and 100)4 asked; the fia of, 1991 were 103)4®
103>£; the 4)4#, JOGX mid 107; and the 4s, 101J4
bid mid 103)4 asked. Thu foreign demand ap
pears to be growing. The London Times ol
April 31 reported Hint United Btates4 percent
'funded bonds were In active demand, and the
'higher consols go the more likely Is tho current
of Investment to bo diverted to such bunds as
these. The same paper publluhcs a communica
tion, in which Uic writer savs:
That a national debt should do reduced by nearly
one-fourth Its wholn amount In thirteen years, while
In the same period the annual interest upon Hie debt
Is reduced by more than one-third, will appear ex
traordinary to British taxpayer*; but a comparison
of tho debt in reference to the population discloica
a stilt more strlk'.nc result, and shows that the
debt per bead has fallen from 378.55 in 1805 (a
841.07 In 1878, while tho annual Interest of the
debt per head has fallen from $4.20 in 1805 to
$1.07 In 1878, a redaction of considerably more
than one-half.
No change took place in foreign exchange ex*
■cept that French commercial bills were stronger.
Business was tame. In Chicago sterling grain
bills w%r° 484% for 50-day bills ami 485% for
eight, arid French were strong at 519%(tt520%
lor CO-day bills. The actual Chicago rates (or
sterling were 480# and 487%. lu New York
the actual rates were 480# and 437%. The
posted rales lor sterling were 487 nnd 488%.
[Trench bankers* bills were 510% nnd 515, uml
actual rates were 518%' for CO-days and 510% on
Consols opened nt 09 15-10, nnd declined to
9813-16. The London Times compares tho pres
ent condition of ttio money market with Unit
which prevailed In IB7G. On tho 10th of April
In that year tho Dank of Emrlund reduced its
Tate to 2 per cent, at which point It continued
till May Sin Uio following year, when it was
raised to 3 per cent. This official rate, however,
Ity no means Indicated tho slate of inactivity
Into which the money market had fallen, for
inonev In tho open market sank steadily all
through tho summer and autumn of 1870, so
that hankers were able to allow only one-half of
1 per cent interest on deposits. The Times
thinks tho money market this year will be as
easy ns that of 1870, if not easier.
Chicago bank clearings were 1100,000, against
$4,000,000 Uie day before. The cay wan a dull

rency were made to Now York to moot tho de
mand for Now York exchange. Discounts

There were sales of Chicago 7s at 1113tf, ami
of Cook County 5s nt 101.
Stocks were active, with the tendency of
dealings in favor of the Vanderbilt nnd tho
Granger stocks. New York Central was steady

to 75%, and dosed at Ihu highest point of the
day. Northwest common opened at 01 >4, fell

43%, touched 45, ami closed nt 44%; the pre
ferred went from 81% to 85%, soiling dually at
84%. Alton took part in Hit* advance, and
is perhaps now* to be classed ns
one of 4 the Vanderbilts. There was a sale of
500 shares at 80% to brokers Identified with Urn
Vanderbilt interest. Michigan Central advanced
from 81% to 82%; Dock Island was strong,
selling as high ns 132%, nnd at the close 132%;
Illinois Central lost %, to S73<; ami Burlington
A Quincy %, to 115. The speculators in Union
Pacific, having evidently not heard of the grass
hoppers that Imre made thdr appearance In
Nebraska, advanced the .price from 73 to 74.
Wabash opened and closed nt 35%, with more
signs of strength than weakness. Ohio A
Mississippi was Inactive, fluctuating notween
14% mid 15%, closing at 15. Tho only South
western stock that showed any strength was Bt.

showed a decrease of $29,025 compared with the
corresponding week of lust year. Thu total
comparative decrease for April was SIOO,OOO.
Erie earnings lor the first two weeks of April
■wore $300,000 greater than the corresponding
earnings of lust year. Tho March earnings In
creased $200,000.
Atchison it Topeka, In tho Boston market
lost week, went up, with a sweep, from 105 to
310, then receded to 100, amt closed at 108%
hid, 109 asked. This stock is now looked upon
its ono of the solids, and will most probably
come on to tins dividend list tills season. The
transactions have been Immense for this stuck,
footing up 4,9211 shares for the week, of which
tlm larger part changed hands In two days.
Atchison & Nebraska Is dull, declining from 111
to UO. Burlington & Missouri receded from
125% to 135, and later 125%, with some bid.

worth 3100 a share, anil will fetch that sum
squarely on merit, but at the same time they are

The San Francisco UnUrUn continue# to bo a
disbeliever In Hie rising price of 4 per cent#. It
said a week atro:
Tho nrlrc of 4•percentbonds has been advanced
In New York lo ly per cent premium! This Is
equal lo 2‘j her cent premium here. It happens
that nearly ail the bond-soliors .at present tire
“hulls." Were a “bear" to throwßl.ooo.ooo In
4 percents on the Now York market, the premium
would probably vanish Use tho morning (low.
In railroad bonds, In New York last week,
the dealings were on a scale of great magnitude,
and the advance In some Issues was quite re*
markable. This Is especially true of the Toledo
Walmsh bonds, which advanced 37 per cent
for equipments, to 57; and I to 4 per cent fur
the other issues. The Eric mortgages led the
market in point of activity, being taken freely
for Investment at advancing lleurcs. Consoli
dated gold 7s advanced 4 per cent, and funded 5s
and consolidated seconds each about 3 per cent,
—the largest transaction having been In the last
named. Thu New Jersey Centrals were also
conspicuously active mid strong, rising 1523 per
cent* Burlington, Cedar Rapid* & Northern
advanced 5 per cunt. C., C. it I. C. Urals and
seconds advanced at the opening, and, after n
sharp reaction, became firm, and partially re
covered the decline at the close. The llret mort
gages show an advance of about 5 per cent on
Hie week’s transactions. Chicago, Northwest
ern, Hock island, Bt. Paul, and all the Pacific
Issues were purchased srecly, and closed strong.
There were large transactions In Kansas &
Texas consolidated assented, which advanced 4
per cent.

gives rise to a good deal of trado between the
two places. Parties will sell on ’Change and
buy below, making a profit on the difference be
tween two sets of deals.
We note that mixed wheat is now a good deal
sought after, and brings a good price ns com
pared with the quotations on spring nml winter.
Reports from 110 stations on (be Wabash Val
ley Railroad generally agree in slating that
there Is an Increased acreage in both wheat and
corn, with good prospects for tho coming
The wheat market was the "cynosure of oil
eyes” yesterday. The price for May had ad
vanced the previous afternoon so much ns to
extinguish tho Juno premium, and yesterday
excitement resulted in a further advance of 3>jV,
with a slight preference, at times, for May over
June. The fact that .Milwaukee was tho other
way, tho early quotation showing o Juno
premium of caused sumo trading be-
tween (he two cities outside of the usual course
of mutual business.
Opinions wore divided lu regard to tho cause
of the phenomenal situation. Some said it was
a bulldozing affair, but tiic real fact seamed to
be that the Alajr shorts piit the market up on
themselves. A good deal of wheat is
yet undelivered on May contracts, mid the re
ceipts of No. 3 here apnllnue small, while the
wheat now here is all held off the market. Some
of It is undoubtedly hold by men who are look
ing for a May squeeze; but there Is reason to
think Unit Hit* great hulk of It Is held for ship
ment when conditions suit the holders. The
aborts hoped for a break hi consequence of lino
weather, nod the number was greater than gen
erally supposed.’The good prospects In Southern
Illinois, Ohio, mid Indiana mode speculative

sellers lit this market for two or three weeks
past; their offerings, more than any other
thing, being the cause of prices keeping
down. The movement of Monday afternoon
caused a rather free calling of margins by the
longs, and the result was that many of the
shorts were forced to cover yesterday, which
alarmed (he rest, especially oa there wore
rumors to the effect that the capital under
wheat has recently received a largo reinforce
ment from the KiUt.
Com was tame, being chiefly sustained by
sympathy with wheat, nml oals were firmer for
the same reason, barley was Independently
strong, the stuck having been reduced by a
rattier freo local consumption. Provisions were
stronger early, but closed tame. The average
of all the produce markets wasaboTO that of the
previous day.
Lake freights were still unchanged. The
advent of a considerable quauttty of freight
room iu addition to that previously here seemed
to cause no chango In the attitude of carriers,
while shippers avoided the lake freight depart*
moot altogether. Exporters stated that they
are doing better than the vessel-men could do
by them anyhow, some buying corn in Baltimore
mid Philadelphia, while one Is understood to
have bought something like 1,000,000 in the
country within the past few days, which (a now
being shipped by all rail.
The vessel-men were encouraged to hold out
yesterday by a telegram from Cleveland an

The demand for dry goods was as active as
could bo expected at this stage of the season.
The demand at present is chiefly In the shape of
mall orders. Groceries were active and gen
erally firm. Sugars are moving with Increasing
freedom, and, alter months of depression, the
market nt last Is working Into a lirtn position.
There was an advance yesterday of }£c. Sirups,
molasses, rice, and teas were held at full fig
ures. Coffees remained easy. In tho dried-fruit,
canned-goods, and fish markets there wore no
specially now features. Duller was about

At tho lumhor-yards trade was attain reported
fairly active at unchanged prices. The cargo
offerings were small and In fair request, espc*
dally the dry stuff. Dealers look fur little
chance in prices during the next six weeks.
After the middle of Juno the fate of the log
crop will he decided. Some of the reports now
received from the pineries make the outlook
very ctoomy for getting out logs, especially in
the Mississippi district. Tho streams in the
lumber regions are said to ho lower
now than they have been for years
in tho springtime, and heavy and
continuous rains will bo needed to bring thorn
to a bight that will permit swift running of
logs. Tho market la stronger In consequence
of this bad outlook for tho log crop. I lard-
ware and metals were In lair demand at recent
prices. Kails are linn, being scarce, and tho
offerings are likely to bo light for some time.’
The wool, hay, and brootn-eorn markets were
steady. Seeds wore quiet, the leading varieties
being firm uml (ho late seeds were stronger,
