Almost all Butter houses quoted the market
weak and top-heavy, with large stocks and
Ilb»ral receipts. In view of the immense sup
plies known to be In cold storage, and which
will be carried over Into the coming season,
the commission merchants ¦ are i timid about
storing and say that thus far they are doing
nothing in this direction except in the way of
filling <*mall orders. This course, ,lf pursued,
will soon lead to an overstocked and depressed
market which tends to render tho current
situation uncertain and shaky. 'Prices, how

The third rar of Western Poultry for the
current week was on sale and moved off rather
slowly as the high prices checked the demand
considerably. Receipts of domestic stock
were moderate' and young chickens.- particu
larly large young Roosters, met with a good
demand at steady prices. Hens and old Roos
ters were dull and lower owing to heavy re
ceiDts of Western, which consisted chiefly of
old stock. Geese and Squab Pigeons were
weak at easier rates.

NEW YCRK. April 26. — To-day' s) stock mar
ket was even more Ueiless and apathetic than
that of yesterday. The free declining tendency
of yesterday way arrested, but this discour
aged rather than fostered activity. What the
traders require U a movtment of prices,
whether up or down. T*ie arrest of the de-
I cllre therefore prompted the retirement of the
light contract* that had been put on»the short
side. The movement had no news to account
for it and there was no symptom of any large
demand !n any quarter. United States Steel
prrferred was the moet active stock, and its
recovery was In f«ce of the practical confirm
ation of the report prevalent yesterday of the
early dissolution of the preferred stock con
version *y?idicate on which the stock declined
then. The Beccnd mortgage bonds were sold
down In the early market to the extent of a
1 point- The selling was attributed to members
I of the syndicate to provide cash to meet the
expected call to complete the payment for that
portion of bonds for which the syndicate agreed
to ray cesh of expected delivery bonds which
the syndicate is still to receive.
An initial engagement of gold for Thurs-
I day's steamer was made to-d»y and bills sold
I In the exchange market were supposed to be
\ eKSir.st other shipments In contemplation. The
I \ttorriT General wit quoted as saying that
the formal transfer of the payment for the
I Panama canal would be made In two or three
! rtays, which utrergthened the belief that the
I gold outgo Is a provision against the coming
I remittance to Paris. The money market will
I be entirely unaffected. The recovery of a large
I fraction In United States Steel preferred was
the only movement of any significance In the
! cay's market. The closing was heavy and
i * Bonds were irregular. Total sales, $2,000,
ooo.
United States 2s declined M per cent on call.

now. as all of the supplies are owned by a few

acting high prices. Trade yesterday was quite
brisk and fancy lots of Burbanks would have
brought higher prices had there been any ob
tainable. There were very few river Burbanks
offering anrl prices were largely nominal. Prices
of new Potatoes were well maintained under a
steady demand. Receipts were 270 sacks. The

firmly held by lmr>orters at the top quotation,
while old lots were being pressed for sale at
concessions. . •
Receipts of Asparagus were about 500 boxes
more than on the preceding day and, as there
was no demand for shipping, prices were
shaded. Occasional lots of prime fancy stock
brought S>c per pound, but there were not
enough sales at that figure to warrant such
a quotation. Peas were firmer under decreased
receipts, while Rhubarb continued in excessive
supply and weak, except for choice San Jose
lots. Los Angeles vegetable* had but slight

CHICAGO, April 2U. — In. the face of lower
cables there was an active general . demand
for wheat at the opening to-day. Initial quo
tations on July delivery were %c lower to J /4u
higher ut h'Zc to S29i,o. The action of a big
trader whose operations are closely watched by
the pit crowd had considerable to* do with the
day's developments. , During the first hour
there was ifood buying, < credited to him. A
quick advance followed in prices, the July
option making a gain o' about %c. The mar
ket then declined as rapidly as it had risen.
The cause of the break was a wild scramble
on the part of early buyers /to aecure profits,
the Impression becoming general that the bull
leader had turned seller. The market receives
little support on the way down. On the decline
the price ot July dropped to Sl%c. . A re
sumption of purchases by the principal holder
induced active covering by shorts and. prices
started upward. Daring the last hour of
trading the market, .was extremely bullish.
The market closed at the highest point of the
day. tlnal ligures on July being *at 83%c,
after the price had touched 83'%c. May so'd
between S3%c and S6%c anil closed at SO%C,
Notwithstanding a ruther unsettled leellng lr
the corn pit sentiment on the whole was bull
ish. July closing at 4S%u. May closed r.x
4(5 %c.
A bullish sentiment pervaded the oats pit.
The market closed strong, with July at 3C=&e.
Heavy buying In provisions by brokers caused
firmness at the opening. The close was linn,
with July pork up "V&SlOc, July lard and
ribs, each being up 7%c.
