Refunding certificates are tlic only Govern
ment obligations In wbicli there Ia any active
trading In Chicago. The high price to which
the 4b have gone has nltnoßt. entirely chucked
the local demand for thorn, and dealers reported
■gala that their purchases of 4s exceeded their
sales. There are millions of the 4 per cents
held In Chicago for temporary Investment, and
these will be thrown on the market from time
•to time. Meanwhile,' the attention of brokers
has been diverted to the rctundlng certificates.
The L’ost-Offlce and the Sub-Treasury ore crowd
ed with hoys and men buying certificates for them.
There is no concealment about It. The “cap
tains of Industry” marshall their gangs on the
aldewalk In front of tho Sub-Treasury. A
creator farce than this refunding certificate bus
iness has not been Been In the financial history
of the country. The refunding certificates were
designed as an investment fur the savings of
the class that did not have the means to pur
chase SSO bonds. But nlne-icuths of those that
are sold go directly from the Subj Treasury to
the banks. Thu brokers yesterday were paying
103 for the certificates. The 4 per cents ad
vanced In tho Now York market to 103 bid and
KSl# asked. Transactions In Chicago were at
102# to 103#, The Cs were 10T# bid am!
107# asked; the 5s lOfi# bid ami 11M asked;
. and the tunency Cs 124,# hid.
Foreign exchange remains dull. Supply ami
demand arc both Insignificant, in Chicago ster
ling grain bills were 455 for sixty-day bills and
for sight, and French were strong nt 530
forslxty-<lay hills, Tim actual Chicago
rates for sterling were 437>£ and •ISS’tf. In New
York the actual rates were tho same os In Chi
cago. The posted rates fur sterling were 488 mid
French bankers* bills were 530J6 and
Consols were-OS 11-10.
At the Chicago banks tho demand for dis
counts was light, although In soma quarters a
BllghUlinprovcmcnt was noticeable. Hates were ’
os7 per cent on call, and 7faß per cent on time,
with some czceplional call transactions at 5 per
cent and some small loans at StfilO per cent.
The currency movement to the country has be
come active again, and shipments now exceed
receipts, llnuk clearings were $5,500,1)00.
Local securities continue to advance. For
Cook 70, lung, 113# won bid and refused, the
asking price having been raised to 113>rf mid In
terest ; 103 and Interest is now hid for Cook
County ss, nml mid Interest asked. In
vestors are turning their attention to the North
Division City Hallway 7 per cents, and tho West
Side City Hallway 7 per cent certificates. For
the former tho hid price is now 10596 and in
terest, and the asking price ltK>36 nml Interest.
t The latter arc and Interest bid, and 100)6
and interest asked.
Fluctuations in the stock market were not as
wide as the day before.' There was a grout dent
of strength la prices. Cheap stocks held their
own as weH ns the solid investment securities.
The mania for trading iu cheap stocks Is illus
trated in purchases yesterday ut of Chesa
peake & Ohio common, which has gone up 200
per cent since it was out on the list a few davs
ago. Its only merit Is that it is cheap. The
road as reorganized has $51,000,000 stock mid

now at work, and before another week a clean*

Thu latest advices indicate a good crop of
corn, possibly »’*. repeat ever raised iu the
United Blalei, and a wheat crop below the
average, as the drought has been too Bovoro in
many sections to permit a healthy growth. Hay
promises but poorly, some operators fearing
the lightest hay crop known la tho West in
many past years.
Our corn market would seem to bo abnormally
low, judging by (ho fact that seaboard-shippers
arc able to nay more for corn in the country
than itcan be sold for In Chicago with freights
equal. The speculative depression Is greatest
for next month, the holders appearing to be
anxious thus early to gel ready for .Tune deliv
he week, 15,005,000.

Currencies :
The leading produce markets were rather tame
yesterday, the aggregate of business being con
siderably below the average. Wheat averaged
higher, and was very steady In the latter part of
the session with light offerings and not much
demand. Corn wos In fair request for shipment,
und firm ou the lunger futures, but rather weak
for June delivery. Oats were better, rye steady,
und barley dull. Provisions were easier, though
hogs were quoted a shade firmer; operators
seemed to fear a larger production by country

Lake freights were quiet and tame. Carriers
named B%u as the rata on corn to Buffalo, but
some shippers intimated that they could obtain
room ns desired at nml one Teasel wns put
In at that rate. Oa through rate by still mid
canal 7)<c was paid, and 12c per 100 lbs wns bid
for through by steam, which wns perhaps a proof
that rail carriers were not accepting 10c, as
alleged by some. It was understood Hint about
1,500 cars were taken, the named rate being
12>tfc, which Is equal to 7>rfc per bn on wheal.
This rate Is so low (tint It Is no wonder water
freights rule dull by comparison. Ocean freights
nro also aftho lowest point known In tnnnv
years. Meats wero contracted through to Liv
erpool yesterday by rail mid steamer at JMe per
100 lbs; making the cost on quay at Liverpool
about 5c per lb for short ribs.
There was a good seasonable demand for
domestic and foreign dry-goods, and the mar
ket wns strong all aroand, with cottons still ad
vancing. Groceries were active. Orders nro
pouring in from all directions, nml tbo dally
sales reach an imposing aggregate. Sugars,
rice, and teas continue strong; other lines
steady. In tho butter market tbero wns a fair
degree of activity, and for anything grading
above medium the market wns decidedly firm,
though tho receipts aro now ou the Increase,
and It may well be doubted whether present
prices can ho maintained much longer. Cheese
was quoted as before, in the .dried-fruit mar
ket there were no changes. Fish wero In lair
demand, with some kinds easier. Family white
fish, trout, family mackerel, and bank codfish
wero quoted lower. Oils, paints, and colors
wero quoted unchanged. Tobacco was more
quiet, but was firmly supported, Jobbers still
being behind with their orders. Bagging was
quoted fairly active and strong.
The lumber market was unchanged, tho yard
dealers reporting a fair trado at the ruling fig
ures, whilo the dock olTcrlngs wero too smalt to
permit any activity. Green lumber Is quoted
easy, but dealers seem to think It Is about ns
low as It will be for a while, especially If tbo re
ceipts do not soou materially Increase. Manu
facturers on the other sldo of the lako soy there
is no money in shipping stuff to bo sold at pres
ent prices, and some of them are piling
the product, whlltf others have not done
much sawing yet. The sales of hardware wero
reported to bo fair, and no material alteration
In prices of the principal staples was announced
except in tin plates. Wool wasqulet and stead}’.
Hides, hay, and broom corn wero steady. Hay
wns higher under a good shipping demand with
light offerings. Tho seed market was inactive.
Green fruits were steady, berries being a little
