NJ'W YOIHC, April 15.?The Htock mar? ket la?t week was entirely dominated by the money market, In which acute strin? gency prevailed. Tho high rate? ot thu previous week wero explain?! on Satur? day, when the bank statement mode It? appearance', showing a dellclt ot $2,500,000 in the Htirplus reserve?, which moke? the worst showing for the month of April ior nearly twenty years.

In the decline. On Wednesday hirgc ?old engagement? were announced, and on thi? the market rallied ?harply, regaining In one day tho larger part of Kb previous Iobh. Since then, us further gold engagement? wero announced, and as tho money rale eased off, the tone ha? been decidedly strong. In all, Home' six or ?oven million? In gold have been engaged this week, most? ly In London, and the purchase of bill? again?! gold engagement? ha? caused u rally of irbout two cent? In the pound In sterling, making further engagement? I lor the moment Improbable. Interior exchange has algo turned quite suddenly In favor of New York,t consid? erable currency having been attracted lo tht? center ?by the high rntes of money which prevailed during the first ten days of the month. Few Special Movements. There wero but few ?pechil movement? in thi. ?took market, which moved, as a rule, fnlrly evenly.

Late News Bullish. Friday renewals on cnll loans were made at 6 per cent. nnd four month? money was offered at S 3-1 per cent. The ?lock market, during the short sc-Ksloln of Saturday. was decidedly strong.

A further ongapemont of $0,00;>,000 In gold was announced, Tho closing prices for stocks were at the best of tho day. Bank Statement. The large decrease of loanr. shown by tho bank statement, $22,131,200, reducid the reservo required ?o that last week's deficit has become u surplus. The In? crease In cash of $l,93S,200 Is very nearly the gain Indicated by tho reported move? ments of currency. The decrease In de? posits of $21.519,700 Is $s;i,7C-0 moro Ol?an the decrease In loans, minus the gain In cash, which Is n remarkably good balance. The reservo roq?lred Is $5,301,026 loss than last week. This, added to the gain In cash, Increases tho reserve by $7,313,125, converting last week's deficit Into a sur? plus.

CaW?, ' . ?' -?';'-' SHARP ADVANCES IN WHEAT PRICES Report of Government Agricul? tural Bureau Chief Factor In Rise in Grain Market, CRITICISM OF FIGURES Weight of Opinion, However, on Side of Accuracy of Report, General Conditions. (Special to Tho Tlmcs-Olspatch.) CHICAGO, April 333.?Rar?ly ha? a re? port ot tho Federal Agricultural Depart? ment ?been so severely criticised as was that of last Tuesday, covering the con? dition of the winter wheat crop for April 1st. Rap? at tho figure? are ?till belli? made, but tho development? ol the weoli in tho markets o? thi? country and abroad ?how that the weight of opinion wad -on tho ?Ide of th0 accuracy jot the report. Price movement? had a quick and positive upward turn, and, while there were ?ome other things to bo con? sidered In getting at the cause of the Increase, the mainspring was this sumo government report. Improvement Since. One great troublo Is that trndors have Ifceen looking at the new crop prospect? from a viewpoint later than April lat. Granting that the. government forecast was accurato at that time, there Is no reason wl)y there should not have been much Improvement In tl?? outlook In thu la?t two week?". As a matter ^of fac?, the trade generally believe? there is such Improvement. "Weather condition? for a fortnight could hardly have been better for growing winter wheat, Throughout tho area? devoted to that crop there waB little to complain of, and, If tho government were to Issue another report based on the conditions up to and Including to-day, there probably would be a different tale to tell. Aa It was, the agricultural report sug? gested a total winter wheat yield of 475, 000,000 bushel??figure? that could hardly be construed Into a bullish Item, except (by contrast with thelarger figures that were generally counted upon. It Is Inter eating to note tho variance between State and Federal figures on wheat conditions April 1st. The Ohio Stato report made tl).e April 1st condition? 74; the govern? ment 52. 'There we're other differences just a? striking, and the trade is at lib? erty t<) take It? choice. Bulge in Prices. The Immediate thing of importance, however, 1? that wheat prices began to bulge at once; that foreign cable? braced materially, and that' there were signs o? greater activity all along the line of the market?. Wet weather In the Northwest, which Is. causing! a.delay.ln.. the work of ?oed irig' '?>Hh'gl'whe'at,''contributed to tho ad. vanee of wheat price?. The same influ? ence had Its effect on the corn and oats markets. Delays In needing are now' se? rious matter?, and farm operation? are being watched with lively Interest. A falling off In receipt? of wheat, In? creasing cash demand? at premium? which grow steadily larger, advance? ?n prices abroad, and a buying by foreign? ers of futures here gave a bullish tinge that lifted the market out of It? long apathy and gave a new breadth to oper? ations. Figure? are being submitted which tend? ed to ?how the accumulations In the northwest will just about satisfy milling demands, counting out the whent that will go forward now that lake navigation Is opened. 'If 'these figures are to be credited It Is fair to look for a rapidly decreasing visible supply, espuclally a? European wants are now an Important consideration In the world situation. Wheat in Hand. Shipments from Argentine nre not keep? ing up to tho ?pace, of the past and It appears .that the republic and Russin, are pot meeting the continental requirements. The Minneapolis Market Record furnishes some Interesting statistics, gathered from 2,000 miller? and grain dealers In the Northwest. These make the amount of marketable wheat In farmers' hand? and In country elevators 43,000,000 bushels. To this is added 25,000.000 bushels In Min? neapolis and Duluth stocks, making n total of t><!,000,000 bushels supplies until the new crop Is available. The mills, It is estimated, should grind 61,000,0000 bush? els before September 1st. "Allowing that half the shipments from the two market? go to outBldo mills," says tho Record, In conclusion, "and estimating shipment? ap? proximately the sanio as last your's?I?, 00O.000 bushels-?!),000,000 bimbo]? will be required." Even allowing considerable; leeway for errors, It would goeni fair lo .suppose that there Is need for all o? tho spring wheat now in the North? west." "? Toward the close of Uhe week there wo? witnessed the phenomenon of tho millers being unable to buy wheat hi some case? wltliTn 10 cents a bushel of What speculative sellers for tho May delivery were willing blindly to dispose of what they ooujd not buy to deliver on I heir contract? hero or In any other market In tho country. Minneapolis miller? bought tho offerings on the sample tables In that city at from 1 3-1 corrts to ?> cents over the May price, bought more to arrive at the ?nmo premium? and oven bargained to pay 3 cent? a bushel over the May price In store, the wheat to bo loaded out after May 5th. Tho bull? aro making much of the fact that, millers all over tho country are buying at prices considerably In oxcosa of those at which It Is being ?old for de? livery on future contract? and that the vlslbaa supply probably Is not greatly In excess of domestic requirements. Foreign? ers are counted upon to take any surplus there may be, Corn. Tho corn' situation ha? grown vary strong, Receipts are far from Hie volume predicted by the bear?. Argentine ship? ments are Inconsiderable. Stocks are now under tiloso of Inst year anil ?till de? creasing. Tho cash demand is wholesome. Planting I? delayed by wet weather, East? ern consumers arc? in tho market In a largo way awl ?onboard clearance? nre eating Into the surplus. Farmer? are toq busy to market corn, and1 they are ?bowing no particular anxiety about getting rid of what they have. It' 1? a combination that has put the bears to rout. Corn l? hold by strong Interest?, who uro playing for higher price?. Oats, Outs Is feeling the effects of delayed seeding BVQii inore than corn. There Is u, present chance that the acreage will ?be-reduced us much as 20 or 25 per cent, frqm that of a year ago. Weather devel opiyehts of the next (ow ?Hays probably' .
