NKW VOBKj March *_"J.— Union Pacific madt
a momntut In to-day's market similar in char
act* r 'although n( lets violence) to that of
Monday o. laa week pracedins the announce
ment Of tht plan of the <l'?tr : bution of the
Northern t-tcuritiea assets, nut this U-olatr-d
movetrert failed siirnally to carry the general
market with it. This slUKKiehne?* of the gen
f-ral marktt seemed adequately accounted for
in thf rariy dealing* by the confllctinc move
imtit in United. t^talen .Steel preferred, whith
*olu down more than a point below yester
day's ¦•losinB. The- general list seemed to be
h€!'l in suspension by these conflicting move
ment*, but iho discrer.ancy became marked
iati r in tli« <Ja:v ivhcu the' pressure against
I mud t-t&tes S-te^I preferred was relieved
v.-ithout a recovery, however, while the rise iii
Union Pacific became more buoyant.
The renewed strength In the mersrr securi
ties on t*i" curb was the only response that
might be ,n sympathy with the rise In Union
Pa-Jflr. The jceneral list remained Inert untfi
the lally Ju*t at the close. The source of the
moti\e of the buying of Union Pacific was as
much of a mjraterjr as ever, but there can be
no doubt thtt the suspicion has gained a
hold <:n the speculative community that, all
is not peaceful in the rrocess of undoing the
Northern Securities merger. The fear gain*
ground that the real point atls*ue is an ad
\ar.tago cf v^it'on j n fhe transcontinental
field which threatens to reopen the whole dis
pute wnich was fought to so violent a termina
tion in 1901. The fear , is fostered by the
traversing of the history of the formation of
the Northern Securities Company and by the
republii ation cf the contention by E. H. Har
riman in a public hearing that the transfer of
his holdings of Northern Pa^lnc was by private
sal'- to J. P. Morgan & Co., and not by de
lxjsit of the slock with th? Northern. Securities
Company lor exchange Into their stock. The
impreiision thus tet afloat in Wall street Is
that He Union Pacific interests are standing
out for. the return of their original holdings of
Northern Pacific and the control of that system
while It is also felt that there 1« no more dispo
sition to yield this peaceably than at any other
previous time. Rtt>ortB of enormous loans made
on Union Pacific collateral kept alive th"
curiosity is to the absorption of that'Stockl
but threw no light on the question. It was not
until th» cksing dealings that the market
shawed any sign of response to the Union Pa
cific. A rise of over 2 points in St. Paul -and
Hiln SouTliern Pacific then pulled the general
list' up to last night's level or .slightly above
The heaviness of United States Steel* preferred
was due to the fears of a statement of the
earnings for the quarter I to be made at the
meotJngnext week, which Is also to act on the
dividend. The session of the Stock Exchange

Receipts of Asparagus were nearly 1300 boxes
and prices had a further decline. . The market
was weak owing to the lack- of demand .for
shipping, and there was qultea heavy surplus
unsold at the close. One canner-was In the
market and purchased stveral hundred . boxes
of No. 2 at 303 Vju P*r pound. .Rhubarb was In
free supply and unchanged. Peas were In light
receipt, but sold slowly at easier rates owing
to the poor - quality of the offerings., which
showed the effects of the recent ' rains. " Re
packed Iota of Tomatoes were firmly "held at
the ton rates, while offerings In original pack
ages were offered freely at the Insld: quotation.
The. steamer Curacao, which arrived from- Alex-
Icon ports on. Monday, brought up 140O boxes,
most of which were in poor condition and ' will
have to be repacked. The same . steamer
brought- up' 36 boxes of Green Peppers, which
were offering at 25@.'!0c per pound: A con
signment of five crates of Florida Tomatoes
which arrived on Monday, was sold at $3 50
per crate.'
A firm feeling prevailed In the market for
table Potatoes and trade was 'quite active, as
most deal:-rs were expecting a. higher range of
prices. The best lots of river and Oregon Bur
bank? were rradily marketed at full figures and
cheap btock moved more freely. | The firmer
feslin? is du» largely 10 reports of extensive
damage to tUe growing cropa in the flooded
river districts. Some dealers reported a weak
market for s<»ed kinds, while others were firm
In their VhWB and were still asking hl^h prices.
Dry Onions were in good request at the top
rate, with seme dealers asking a little more,
but no actual, sales were reported over $2 50

CHICAOO, March 'Jft.— Buyers of wheat were
out in force at the opening, -but sellers were
scarce. The result .was -a strong start, the
July option ; being, up a shade to."si@>ic at
S$?h<fi;;9V«c.' - The Initial firmness was due
partly .to hlRher cables, but the strength In
the cash market yesterday was perhaps the
chief supporting, factor. For a time the mar
ket was extremely ¦bullish* and prices contin
ued to advance, July. soiling up to 894c. The
close, however, was weak, with July at S7 s i<S
¦**7Mtc. May closed' at 95',sC, after ranging be
tween »7 1 4c, and t)7Hc
An active general .trade was witnessed in
the corn pit. but a nervous feeling was mani
fested. The close was easier. . July opened
He to tic higher at T>"c fo 52^4c and closed
at 51»4(i5.i1'»kc. . May ranged between 54>ic
and closed at S5»4(a55 T ( i c. ¦>
Oats followed the course cf oth<»r grains,
the market being governed almost exclusively
by the. aitii.ni of wheat and corn. After open
ing stfade to !»®J4c higher at S8%c to 88c,
July sold b-tween :;s%r« 38 >ic ami ;59',3@:j9>4c,
cloning at 38VS l 9389ic. ¦ . • .
' Provisions were firm early in ; the session.
The market, felt the effects of the late selling
In wheat- and corn, realizing sales causing
