Boston, April 8. Still lower prices hnvo
to bo ntndo on butter this weok. Tliero Is
nn unsettled and uncertain .fcdlng, and
whllo receivers mo anxious to olcim up
buyers nro disposed to hold oft for further
Although receipts last week were not
a largo ns tho previous week, there wns
inoro than enough for'tho demand nnd
iomi) 1ms boon carried over. This, with
later liberal receipts, had n depressing ef
fect, nnd buyers aro likely to have tho ad
vantage during tho remainder of the week.
Many dealers think that tho break hns
come too suddenly, and that It would bo
bettor that prices should decline gradually
until tho now season Is fairly opened.
As the old stock Is virtually out of tho
way, there ought to ho a doiuand for a
good d'-al of new butter, and whon tho
markut settles wo look for a larger trade,
Unless the supplies nro very largo a reac
tion may set In and bring prices up ngaln.
They nro now about " cents lower than a
year ago.

A steady tono is maintained on strictly
choice fall stock. Holders of lino fall
cheeso nro still stjoug In their vlows, be-cau-o
their stock cannot be replaced, but
those, who nro holding early mado aro
ready to accept rtny reasoliablo offer rather
than carry It along until the early skins
como Into market. Tho export trado con
tinues light.
Tho egg market Is attracting special nt
tout Ion. liuyors have commenced opera
tions for cold storage, and five or six car
loads hnvo already been put into tho
Qulncy Market company's warehouse.
It now looks ns If tho prlco of llrst-chiss
torago eggs .vould not go under 12 conts,
but our dealers nro still hoping for n lower
price, nnd they may get It Inter, when the
western folks sccuto all they want. This
will bu u busy month In tho egg trade.

The Wool Market.
Thero Is no improvement In the general

at tho present time It is almost impossible
to soil wool, as no one seems to bo In
need of raw material. Of course thero is so

nothing In tho way of sustaining vitluos.
In tho nbsenco of anything but n hnnd-to-mouth

much depressed, and dealers say that to

Chicago, April S. Wheat opened steady
nrotind tho closing prices of Monday.
Cables wero firm nnd commission housca
wero freo buyers of May. After the open
ing the market beenmo somcwnui quioi
but hold firm. Later cables showed a still
further advance in Liverpool nnd llerlln
and our market ndvancefl rapidly, May
selling at 6S. Tho reports from tho winter
wheat belts show no Improvement to crop.
During tho afternoon tho miirket became
very active, prices declined quickly on
selling of wheat by Urosseau and Cham
plnln; tho weakness caused somo alarm
nmong small holders who sold and put
tho market down about 1& conts from tho
high price of tho day closing at tho bot
tom. Wo think It Is now the time to buy
whesit on this break. Corn and oats wero
steady early In tho day, but weakened
In sympathy with wheat. Provisions open
ed strong and higher; later they weakened
on selling by parties who wero long and
Inking protlts. Packers wern very modor
ato sellers to-day. Wo should think It
tlmo to buy all kinds of hog products.

New York, April 8. Tho market for
stocks was qulot and for tho most part
strong at tho opening. London prices wero
firmer for St. Paul and L. and N.. The
bearish sentiments In stocks arc tho gold
shipments; It Is very doubtful, however,
If tho continued strength of forolgn ex
chango which will lend to further with
drawals of gold will have anything mora
than-1 translstlng nnd brief effect on the
general market. St. Paul's earnings for
tho first week of April will probably show
quite an Increase, thoy will bo published
to-night. American Tobacco was active
and weak at tho opening but rallied back
n little on buying by Insiders. Sugar
remains firm and looks as If It would sell
much higher. Cotton fcaturoless. Tend
ency downwards. August cotton opened
nt ".CO and closed ut 7.71.
