The Day's Transactions on the Chicago Board
of Trade.
Chicago, Feb. IH.—At the opening the wheat
market looked for about two minutes as If lt
might rule firm for the day, but quickly faced
about and became weak. May wheat opened
with buyers at 53 l £c and some sales at the
same tiraeat 53 :i ,£". Be (Or b 45 minutes of the
session had gone it was down to 63*40. The
weakness was the outcome of the increase in
the receipts at primary markets this week,
leading io the belief that the previous falling
off of ths market was the result of severe
weather and not of any aearcisy of wheat In
creasing the primary market receipts; the
quite moderate export clearances were like
wise matters of discouragement. Bradstreet's
statement of weekly clearances of wheat and
flour from both coasts showed a total of 5,572,
-000 bushels this week, of which 1,150,000
bushels went from tho Pacific aide. The west
ern primary market receipts were a totai of
V 7,000 bushels against 2.14.000 on the similar
day of last year. Export clearances from the
Atlantic seaboard for the twenty-four hours in
wheat ami flour together wtis 221,000 bushels
The feature of tho trading was the freedom of
the selling. Long wheat, came out first in
large quantities and that encouraged the scalp
ing crowd to add to their offerings, thus
swell'ng quantity for sale loan extent which
caused a further break to The latter

Pointers on the Market! by Private
Lo, Anoei.es, Feb. 16.
In the wheat market today it seems to be go
ing to pieces, which is due to heavy liquida
tion. There is no bright lining to the cloud of
low prices, but experienced people know that
the old Baying of being darkest before dawn is.
applicable also to prices in the grain market
Wheat is within i«c of the lowest price on
record and must go higher. We are bulls on
w heat, and believe consistently that wheat be
low tiuc a bushel Is cheap enough for even tho
man who buys it to sell again.
lv corn, from the receipts, one would judge
that corn and hogs were the only things left to
the farmer to sell to get money for his necessa
ries. Corn and hogs are being rushed to the
market with freedom, which argues much
lighter receipts in the spring.

The General Trade Shows Some Signs of
| The California wine trade, which has for a
year or more past been greatly depressed, is
! showing some signs of revival. The wine
trust, recently organized, seems to be succeed
ing in the purpose for which it was formed,
namely, forcing higher prices for the product.
The Association of Califmnia Wine Growers,
I now controlling the market for California vin
] tages, recently sold 1,00J,000 gallons of new
j wines at 12? a cents and has since advance I
the price to 15 cents, at which rate It lias
several order - for large quantities.
The New York commercial Bulletin of Feb
ruary titb, speaks thus of trade : In ad 11 Hon
to the auction sales of California wine, which
I were Inaugurated by Sgobel & Day last Sep
tember and continued at regulf.r intervals
since that time, they have now arranged to
sell flue California brandy lv the same manner,
an i tho tirst sale at auction will tuke place on
Thursday of this week f when, under their in
structions. Wood row <k lewis wll sell fi f y bar
rrlsof Zinfandel fifty barrels of port ant
| thirty barrels and forty half-barrels of prime
j old brandy 11892 .
j The sale of brandy ot unreserved auction is
I a new departure, but the owners in California
i have faith that as the auction sales of wine
j have i een satisfactory there is no reason why
: brandy should not De handle! iv the same
i manner. It. Is true that prices obtained iv the
\ past for the wine have not equalled the prices
I asked by jobbers here, bnt as business in
creases the difference between same wiil
doubtless be lessened, as the buyer." become
m re accustomed to the auction system of dis
| posing of these goods.
i The fretjiht rates from San Francisco have
| been advanced, so that it OOStS several i cuts
: per gallon more freight ou all wine than it
, has cost previously, aud buyers here will be

Los Anuei.es, Feb. 10.
The week just closed, thong i fraught with
anxiety, on account of the unsettled condi
tion of the national finances, was eminently
satisfactory so far ss local business was con
cerned. Tiie Innk clearings were heavier than
usual, Kb owing an increase of 33.1 per cent
over the eorrcsp mding week of last year.
Kvery hthg is running along smoothly in
banking circles, the only diversion during the
week from the usual routine being a little
sijiiabble over tbe division i f the county funds
among the banks This appears to have been
only Li question letween the County Treasurer
Ihd hisbondsmen, the banks furnishing the
largest part of his security naturally claimi-g
the rlgh' to dictate where the funds shall be
deposited. The result WSJ a reapportionment,
$197,00 > being removed from the vaults of one
bank and deposited In another.
As in transactions involving tho handling of
Uttdi large sums of money there are usually
| wh' els within wh eU, so in th s case there are
compile *tions —oil of a st'letly personal na
ture, however —whic'. do not ft'pear on the
surface. Ail the public know-is that the funds
; left a safe place of deposit and found lodgment
I iv another of most unquestioned soundness;
and there public int rest ends.
( IAS public funds constitute ft special deposit,
and must be kept separate from the other funds
of th • bank, and cannot hs used in ordinary
business transactions, theyareofno parttou ar
value to the institution that is honored Witt,
their keeping. Therefore the withdraws! of
of such moneys, iv ever so large sums, does
! not impair the capital of the bank deprived of
1 them. Ju ■■lew of these facts, the public funds
are safe, as ihey were before, tho Treasurer is
at pesos with his bondsmen, and the banks go
on In the even tenor of their way. If any per
sonal differences remain to bo adjusted, they

The Day * Speculation In Wall Street - Review
of the Week
1 NEW York, Feb 10.-The slock market dur
ing the two hours Ol business today WAS very
irregular in its movement, but in the main in
clined toward higher prices this tendency b. -
ing due to the closing out of short contracts
'■ At the Opening speculation was strong in tone,
s fractional advance being recorded The im
provement, however, was not maintained (or a
long lime, a b.oak of in National Lead
. causing a sympathetic decline iv the general
market: New Jersey Central was alsoatlacked
and broke liefore 11 o'clock the temper of
speculation bat) undergone a change for the
better, Lead having rcovered I Jersey Cen
tral rallied 1 on covering of snort contracts,
and i he rest of the list moved up under similar
1 influences. About 11; 0 here was a slUht re-
but in the final trading the market was
/liriu and closed in goo I tone, tho greater part
j of the shares dealt In being higher on
j the day.
; Speculation was restricted in the early part
[of the week, As but little hope was enter
-1 tamed of Congressional relief to the financial
situation, the defeat of the bond bill merely
j added sjlgatly to the existing depression. An-
I other factor of weakness was the unfavorable
reports of railroad earnings, notably the
' granger roads. The re-pub ication of the
j terms of tho Government loan, and that it had
i sold its 4 per cent bonds to tha Belmont-Mor-
I gaii syndicate had a good effect. The require-
I meut which provided for the importation of
i gold from from Europe, and that which re*
| quired its best efforts to prevent the with
drawal ofgold from the treasury, were looked
upon as very favorablo to the market. The
bears attempted to exaggerate the importance
of purchases of some gold in tho open market,
the buyers paying a commission of Hvfi P**
cent to bullion brokers. But the effort to cre
ate a scare on the gold premium waa ineffect
Northwest was a feature of the share specu
lation throughout the week aud suffered from
heavy liquidation. Tobacco was forced down
"i x i. The primary cause of the break was a
rumor to the effect that an Insider was selling
the stock. In the latter pirt of the week there
were evidences of inside buying, which result
ed in a rally ol 4' v Street gossip to the effect
that the affairs of the United States Cordage
would soon be transferred so the care of receiv
ern resulted in a slump in the stock.
The closing trades of the week disclose a de
mand for Cordage stocks, and they are marked
up i% BJg snd 14t«j respectively, the net losses
being only % for the common, 1 for the pre
ferred and % for tha guaranteed. Sugar, while
most prominent In the trading, moved within
comparatively narrow limit*. The aggregate
sales of the week were 800.300 shares.
The general bond market today was firm but
dull, the sales aggregating $:tOli,olo. Trading
during the week was extremely uninteresting,
final sales for the most part being below those
of a week ago.
Governments showed more activity than
for some time past, the combined sales aggre
gating $080,000, The 5s show an advance of
% and the 4s oi per cent which is due to the
high bids mado for ihe new 4 percent loan
taken by the syndicate.

J. L .lowland, one ol the leading olive crow
en of Pomona gives the following .iuieresti ng
description of the -ocalled manufac ure of olive
oil, In the I cbr itry uombtr ol tho California
Olive oil is not inanufactnre 1 but is devel
oped In the olive ai it rlpotM, fr.>m whi:di tt is
extracted as follow s : When the olives have
turned to a dark red or black, they hay ■ atttt
ciently ripened lo pic*. They are gr.tliere I
ai follows; A lurf i canvas, which is slit t<>
the ceuter, is sp cad on the ground around
the tree; the pickers have a sic;. <!nm;frOti
their shoulders, the mouth k. a |,t
byalialf barrel hoop se.vn into it* top, th 1 ;
ends resting against the breast of tue picker
Witu bis left hand he holdt tho brane i to keep
it from breaking, aud wit i his ri lit strip- th i
bcrrlos off Into the sack | so ne fall on tho o*9
rat, from where they are fathered up a.i 1
poured into baskets. Thoollvei are now spread
on trays aud allowed lo dry until they cum
in nee to thrive]: then they are put into a
iron lias n within wliicu revolve two
Urge vertical lro:i wheels which work tne
olives into a li..c pulp without cm 'Mil* the
pt s. The p ilp is then put into ru h aa k ,
which are piled up In the press and »vi j - ted
to a slow pressure. The oil ami water i odd tue
palp, ax lt runs from the press, is collected in
tin receptacles from teuton the oil is skimmed
off, put tn .arge tin tanks and allowed to stand
for several weeks lo clarify. Theu it is tillered
by straining ttmnwh white lille- papers
which aic put into a lot of the funnels set in
th'd top of a large tank in which the oil is col
lected. The oil is drawn irom tho tank, put
into bottles and is now icady for the market.
The press which I use is a powerful hydraulic
press, made especially for me, and gives a
pressure of several hundred tons. All our ma
. hinery is run by a gasoline engine, and so
managed that by moving a lever a part or all
the machinery will run without using any
hand labor. After the pulp is pressed once it
is dumped into a Urge tin-lined bin and after
war, m put into tho grinder and reground, pits
and all.which makes a second grade oil,which
we do not put up in glass. The pressure ot
tne press must be very g adnal arid slow. The
pressure Ib put on and theh stopped, and the
oil allowed to drip out of the pomace: then a
little more pressure is used, and so on till the
oil has been nressed out of the pomace.
For a small plain for making oiiveoil anyone
could uae one of the portable cider mills, which
cost about $25. and from that ihey could put
in as expensive machinery as they pleased.
There is no secret in making olive oil, and any
one can do it who has common sense. Kvery
thing must be kept very clean, and all the ma
chinery end everything which comes in con
tact with the oil and pulp should be washed
with hot water every day while you are mak
ing oil. The oil must be kept in a cool place
and from the sunlight.
