suing the bulletin to ascertain the extent
of the shortage of cattle was the out
growth of sentiment In the Hast when
packers advanced the price of beef Into
line with the prices of cattle on hoof. It
""'fl not be overlooked that none of the

extreme high (.rices hud been placed on

Chicago. April 19. Wheat to-day went tip
like n rocket and down like the stick,
Pardrldso being the Inlluence both ways.
Ills covering of nn enormous short line of
four or live million bushels caused Ihe ad
vance, and when his line was In price
dropped from lack of support. May clos
ing unchanged uftcr a lUe bulge. May corn
nnd oats each closed '40 higher, and pro
visions made slight gains.
"A'hont wns ngaln In good demand when
the market opened, although initio llttlo
.May wheat was sold nt ns low ns etc, and
July ns low as Mo nt nnd nrotin.1 the open
ing. About two hours after tho opening
shorts were eagerly bidding r.9',c, nn.l tak
ing It nt &9'.ic when sellers appeared re
luctant. The Inllilenccs were largely of ft
local character, but Liverpool, Ixuidon,
Paris nnd llcrllii all sent higher quotations
nt the opening, the demand for Hour wns
reported from nil directions to be good, at
dally Improving prices. Primary market
receipts were light. The exports from At
lantic ports were much lighter than on the
day before, but the shipping demand hero
for wheat to go East was early lit the day
reported to be excellent. Among other
matters was the continuation of the dry,
An advance to roJc took place before the
Mny shorts were allowed a breathing spell,
but nt that price, which was INo per bush,
el mole than It wns worth nt the close yes
teidny, there wns 11 general Inking of
profits, followed by a very quick reaction of
lc per bushel from the top, SS'-aO being the
trading price for .May about live minutes
after 12 o'clock. The extra demand for
Mny wheat ns compared with the desire for
July Is seen In the fact that while May
on the advance rose front 5S to 59S.c, July
In the same time only Improved from Mo
to OOUc. the sore.'.d thus linrrowinir to
?ic per bushel, ns ngnlnst the'recent differ
ence of ubout lc. The business In the pit
was broad, l'ardrl.lgc covered a great deal
of .Mas wheat through houses other than
Pardrldge Leenilng. his usual brokers.
With the relief ottered by the selling out
nt 11 prollt of much long wheat, the pit
quieted down, and the few buying orders
which came In the nftemoon were supplied
by the scalpers. Mny settled down nround
5S'fcC, and stnyed there for a considerable
time without life enough to move. In tho
last twenty minutes of the session It be
came common rumor that Pardrldge had
covered between four nnd live million bush
els of his Mny and July wheat, and wai
now practically nshore. He certainly cov
ered freely.but Is not supposed In well In
Wrmeiluilrdes to h.ivyi bought In one-half of
his line. The market became heavy towards
the end. Mny sank gradually to 5Sc, and
closed nt 5S',,c bid.
The corn market was llrm, with a ten
dency early In the tiny to follow the
llucttiatlon." In wheat, but later, when the
friends of wheat had deserted It, the corn
market did not respond to the other's
weukness, nnd closed a shade higher for
the da.v, the latest trading In .May being at
43ic. It sold 11s high as 10'Ac, when wheat
wns on Its high horse. Tho receipts were
1S7 cars, and shorts covered rather freely.
Oats met with a fairly good sale. Th8"
udvnnce In wheat was followed only on a
moderate scale, nnd offerings Increased ns
the price was added to it. O.irrlngton
Hanunh and Hartlett-Frazler sold heavily.
May started at 2S'sO and sold up to 2Sl.c.
There was rather scant buying at that
price, and a drop follDwea. The decline
went ns far as 2S;c, nt. which price the
market closed. July sold from 27'iW
27:l;e down to 27?s'ti27'.';C, nnd rested at
27'c, io higher.
The provision market opened weak on
receipts of 3,011) more hogs than had been
estimated, and 5c decline In their vnlue.
Later, the market became llrm, with wheat,
nnd in lots quite strong, with the early de
cline turned Info an ndvance. In the end
pork closed with a. net gain of 12',ie, lard
advanced 2'aO nnd ribs 5s.
stend of following this mnrket In Its recent
ndvances, nn.l this has tended to weaken
prices for choice beeves. Eastern shippers
and dressed beef lirms purchased sparlugly
most of the time. Common to strictly
choice native steers sold at SI.OOfTO.OO tho
bulk selling between S5.00 and $0.0o, with a
few sales of extra lino cattle at $0.1580.23.
Cows, unlike steets, were In active tie
man. 1, butchers find dinners being good
buyers, and prices were 13Ti20c higher than
a week ago up to Thursday. Stiles were
largely at $2.25511.25. Calves weru about

A Novel Idea.
Great Interest Is taken In France In tho
plan of M. Hasln, an engineer, who thinks
the picsent form of ocean ships Is nn In
correct one. Ills Idea Is taken seriously by
some of the most famous naval men of
tho republic, nn.l Admiral Cnnlombeaud
has written un article In Us praise In La
.Marine 110 ..ranee, i.uziu s "snip or tno
future," as ho calls It, consists chlelly of
a great platform, on which cabins are to
bo borne, held above water by hug.) roll
ers. Tho rollers serve as "floaters," and
ns means of locomotion for the vessel.
Ilazln litis not contented himself with a
plan on paper, hut has actually construct
e.l 11 model live meters long and expe.
rlmeuted with It successfully on a lake near
Paris. The ttluls wcrn so encouraging, la
fact, that he has decided to build 11 "roller
ship" 25 meters In length, 11.8 meters wide,
with tho 1 oilers S meters In diameter, tvitli
this he Intends to experiment on La Mancha
canul. The construction of 11 great ship 13)
meters In length Is proposed.
The Inventor declares tliut his roller shin
will bo nblo to make 32 nautical miles ait
hour, and believes Unit It will prove a much
safer means of uceun travel than tho pres.
