GREATERACTI7ITY Characterized the Market for the Past Week, With the Possibility of A SHARP UPTURN IN THE FUTURE. Wheat Opened Easy and Advanced Closing 1 cent Higher. A PREDICTED RISE IN CORN, j Pork Active and Stronger— High- j er and Oats Quiet. STOCKS STRONG AND ACTIVE. Wall Street Experiencing an Old Time Bull Market CHICAGO. iSpeeial Telegram to the Globe. \ Chicago, Feb. 9.The week ending to day has been one of greater activity in grain and provision circles than for ! pome time past. Outside orders have been larger, but the bulk of the business was local, and by the same crowd of operators ■who were foremost in the markets for the past two months. There is a growing ten dency among the moat conservative brokers and speonlaturs to go slower as the time is now at hind when a sharp npturn is liable to occur, and those who have watched mar kets for j eara think the indications for such a movement are becoming more ap parent every day. Wheat was the leading feature in specu lative markets to-day. The receipts for the week foot up 186,000 bushels, and the j shipments 91,900 bushels, and stocks will I show an increase. Taking tho amount in store here to-day at 13,000,000 bushels, and the stock that is liable to accumulate between now and the opening of lake nav igation, it will require an average weekly shipment of 1,250,000 tons to take it all oat before August. The market to day was active and strong, and advanced lj^c. Advices from New York quoted a better tone, with a Chicago party, supposed to be Sid Kent, buying in that market to help his friends to bull wheat here. Cables, however, were weak and dull, as on previovs days. A very strong undertone was developed, and was helped along by reports of cold weather in winter wheat regions, and a decrease in the visi ble supply of 1,250,000 bushels. As the | latter is one of the chief bull arguments usoi the report was taken with a little Bait, but it served the purpose of the bulls ad mirably. The market opened rather easy, any many expected another break and Bold heavily for a few minutes, but the market held up and with free buying by Nat. Jones, Ream, Poole. Kent & Co. the Spruauee packing crowd, and Boch. Much of the takings of the latter was re ported to be for Lindblom, who has been j short a long time; but as Roach is known j to be his own best customer, and one of the most difficult operators to follow, on account of his propensity for sudden changing, it' is impossble to tell to a cer tainty exactly what he is Tip to. The gen eral opinion is that he was buying for an upturn. Opening sales were at 99%0, 9y?^c for May, and prioes advanced un der presistent buying, to fl.Ol with few fluctuation it receded to $1.00% and closed firm at $I.firstname.lastname@example.org^, which was 2o above the close one week ago. On the curb the strong feeling con tinued and long loat gales were made at $1. Winter wheat removed dull with not enough; doing to establish quotations, millers ordering very sparingly, and the few orders received for sample lots were filled without difficulty. Corn was about the dullest artiole on the speculative list except ' oats and rye. Trading was light and enterely local scalping and at time, it was almost deserted. The feeling was weak from opening to close, and was only supported by the strength in wheat and provisions, and the prospect of a marked falling off in reoeipes next week. Arrivals to-day were 356 cars, 83 o irs being con tract, and for the week aggregated 1,515, --000 baehel?, and shipments were 676,000 bushels. The visible supply is expected to show an increase of 1,500,000 buehele. Opening sales were made at 58J^c for May. Nat Jones bought moderately for a time and sent prioes up to SSJgO but the advance could not be maintained as there was not enough general buying and prioes receded to 55^0 and finally closed at 58%e on change and at 58% oon the curb. In sympathy with the advance in wheat the shipping demand for low grades was moderate and supplied from car lots on track at lower prices than Fri day. During the week vessel roem was engaged for 195,000 bushels, but only 100, 000 bushels of No. 2 was loaded. Oats were quiet but stronger and }£@ Vc higher, the strength being entirely due to the upward movement in other articles, as the demand from shippers was light. The receipts of hogs were small, aggre gregating 91,734 for the week, against 121,089 for the previous week, and 132,271 for the corresponding period last year. The quality is poor this season. The market is stronger and advanced 40@500 per 100 pounds. Shippers took 50 per cent, of the (offerings, which was an unusual thing for this time of the year. The supply of hogs at interior points were also light, any many small |honses have been forced to close for the season. The number of nog 3 packed here to date is 1,882,000, against 2,272,000 in 1882, and 2,258,000 in 1881. ' The provisions market, while not ex hibiting as much life as on former days, was quite active at times, but trading was mainly on local speculative account, and for May delivery. Baldwin, MoHenry, Cudahy & Stevens and a few others bought pork quite freely in a quiet way at inter vals, and a strong undercurrent prevailed from the opening to the close, which was 20@25c per barrel higher than last sales of Friday. Since the opening of the week prices have advanoed 1 at, 1.20, and olosed firm at outside quotations of the week. Lard was traded in to a fair extent by local speculators, but outside orders were light, a very strong feeling prevailed, and prices advanced 10@12}£o per 100 lbs. from last night's close, and for the week showed an appreciation of 50@G0o. There was more shipping demand, and 5,000 tierces were taken for export to Liverpool to cover shorts there. Short ribs were quite active, Gndahy & Stevens bought freely all day, and their takings are estimated at 3,000,000 lbs., which caused an advance of 10@15o, end they closed at the outside quotations of the • . ■ ■",'■■. day, whioh were 37^@400 over the last j sales of one week ago.. The shipping demand for meats was I moderate as the southern trade will - not ; purchase much in the market until stocks , at interior points have been exhausted. A. M. Wright & Co. says: "Pork active and stronger; lard firm and moderately active, with strength largely due to soaroity of hogs and advance in pork; short ribs mod erately aotive and speculative futures ad vanoed 150 per 100 pounds and olosed at about outside prices, the demand being chiefly to cover shorts." Mill mine, Bod man & Co. say: "Wheat market here ' opened 99% c May and under aolive demand from the shorts Bold up almost from the opening to $I.oo}£, and later, on buying by prominent local operators, wbb advanced to % 1.01 closing steady at $1.00% @ 1.00%; corn firm, opening at 58)^o for May, it sold up to 58^c, and olosed at 58% c. Some outside buying orders were received. The mo3t noticeable feature in the market to-day was the great scarcity of offerings. Corn has many friends among the solid houses I here, and higher prices later on are oon- I fidently predicted. As with wheat, we think it a safe purohase on all soft spots.' | The receipts of cattle were smaller by 1,000 head than on any day this year. j There was a sharp demand for all sorts j and values ruled considerably stronger and j in some instances higher than at the close i yesterday. The receipts of hogs to-day, : like those of cattle, were the lightest since I the opening of the year— 7,000 head. There was a liberal demand from shippers and packers; the former, however, secured the bulk of the offerings, but were forced to pay an advance of s@loc per 100 pounds on account of tho competition from packers. Receipts of sheep were j 0,000 head. For the good lots offered . a sharp demand existed and the highest prices of the week were realized, the market being very strong. Common and ordinary lots were steady, with a fair cull for all on sale. "' Chicaao Financial. [Special Telegram to the Globo.] Chicago, Feb. —In the local money market this week the demand for money by the board of trade men and others has been moderate and below the wishes of oar leading discount bouses, i.nd with a good supply of idle capital seeking em ployment, all the gilt edged paper that appeared was promptly taken at 5@7 per cent. Rail rates to the sea board have been unsettled,but now are quoted on a basis of 300 per 100 lbs. on grain and 350 per 100 lbs. on provisions to New York. The bank clearings to-day were $7,007,000, and for a week foot up $45, --2<>7,1!)7, against $41,471,506 for ; the cor responding week in 1883. NEW YOKE. [Special Telegram to the Globe. New Yobk, Feb. 9.--The syndicate for the purpose of advancing the price of shares was full of business this morning, | and the market vas one of the strongest | that has been peon in along time. Central & Hudson was th 9 card during tho early hours. Rumors that the Vanderbilt inter ests and the west shore wore harmonizing assisted the advance. Delaware and Lacka wanna came to the front cmong the coalers, and was rather the leader all day, rising from 12G)4 to 127 . Pullman Palace was reported next with a bound from 111 Jd to 114. The grangers just about held their own. The Northern Pacifios, Oregon Transcontinental and the non-dividend payers generally were not sought after. There was some very good baying of Rock Island as tho day wore oa The shorts covered large linec in sever ,4 of the leading stocks, but still the demand continued. At 2 o'clock the market was fairly booming with a good bt>-ones3 ] throughout the list. Being the clo"3 of We ! week there was naturally cor>,s>dpr&b'.'j j realizing at the last, and s'.ight ifaoticEs were in order. The tone at the close v. ,-* steady. The bank statement was a favor able one showing an increase in receive. To all appearances, we have bad to-day an old time bull market. The opening was very quiet, but also very firm. La?a wanna was moved to the front as leader, and soon the Yanderbilts rallied and the Chicago, Burlington & Quinsy, Rook Is land, and all the good dividend papers' joined the advance, and without dash or spasmodic effects the lust gradually moved up, with now and then a halt for breath, and apparently to make sure of their foot ing, cloeing at about the best figures of the day. Leading room traders acknowledge they got left out in the cold in the last downward turn a>id say they now look for better prices for all gocd dividend stock?. The buying in Rock Island was extremely good and the stock shows a gain of 3}^ points for the day. Prominent parties wer9 loaning Lacka wanna flat, making it very plenty, and they can make it worth a round premium when they get ready. During the middle hours and up to the close dividend stocks were active, especially Rook Island, Chicago, j Burlington & Quincy, New York Central, Lake Shore, St. Pan", Missouri Pacific and Lackawanna. St. Paul, while very active, did not show the strength manifested by the others, but held from 93 to 93% all day. West Shore bonds were very uncer tain in their movement. 'Vanderbilt is said to have control of the North River I Construction company. The market closed very bullish in tone with indications of a still further advance. Cutting Rates on Lumber. The ten-cent cut rate is still in effect on lumber from Chicago to the Missouri river, at common points. The St. Paul roads reduced rates on the same basis from Rock Island, Clinton, Lyon, and lower Mississippi river points. The rate from St. Paul, Minneapolis and Still water re mains fifteen cents, and Eau Claire and Menomonee seventeen cents, the same as the rate prior to the cut from Chioago. The rates from this territory are solid by way of either of . the three routes from * St. Paul. The out rate from Chioago was the outcome of the refusal on the part of the Eau Claire Lumber company to waive its contract of rates of two cents per 100 above rates from Chioago. The consequence is, that the whole country will be filled with Chi oago lumber, as the lines from Eau Claire cannnot meet the rates in consequence of the lines running from Council Bluffs notifying the St. Paul and the Chicago, Milwaukee &■ Omaha roads that they will not pro rate with them on any out rates.'

Boston, Feb. —The oourt has issued an order allowing the receiver of the New York & New England railroad to pay cer tain classes of claims, including taxes whioh are or may become liens, rents whioh if unpaid would cause forfeiture of rights of the estate, sums due shippers for overcharges, continue work on the sec ond track and defend suits brought against the corporation.

The adverse decision of the senate judi- I ciary committee on the nomination of Paul Strobach does not seem to be so much the result of senatorial opposition to the administration as it is of a division of the administration against itself. It is sup posed that in making appointments the president consults the head of the depart ment in which the appointment is to', be made, but this nomination in the depart ment of justice was opposed by the attorney general, who sent a letter ■to the committee that while Strobachwas acquit ted last summer when tried for collecting false emolument returns when marshal before, that the attorney general had abundant proof that Strobaoh . was guilty. This decided the committee against him. One surmise is that the president had rea sons for wishing to make the nomination, but didn't want Strobaoh confirmed, and another is that Mr. Brewster has become alarmed over discoveries made by Mr. Springer's oommittee, and concluded it would be discreet to prevent Strobaoh's confirmation. It appears that Strobacn collected his illegal fees as a campaign fund to be used in elooting himself to con gress in 1882, in whioh ambition he was defeated.

Permanent officers of the caucus are to be elected in place of Gen eral Rosencrans, chairman, and Mr. Bel mont, secretary of the caucus of the Forty-seventh congress. While there is some dissatisfaction with Bosencrans as chairman, it has not assumed a form' that would warrant the expectation that he will not be re-elected. A "late DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION. . Several months ago New York Sun threw out the 'gestion that the "Democrats hold their national convention late |in the season, adding that the interval between August and November was sufficiently long for all purposes of \ a presidential; cam paign. It is evident that the suggestion is meeting with considerable favor, and a number of gentlemen prominent,in the councils of the Democratic party will urge such a suggestion when the committee meets here on the 22d inst. August is the month they prefer, leaving the date an open question. Gan. Single ton wsa asked to day what effect this would have upon Cbioago's chances for securing the convention. Ac replied in effect that it would be helpful rather than otherwise. He is a wily diplomat and this is probably a potent faotor in his advoca cy of a short ennvasa.. He says the contest has narrowed down to; Chicago and Saratoga, other cities being practically out of the race. As between Chioago and Sar atoga the chances are in favor of the for mer, more especially if August be the month selected, as the Saratoga hotels are filled to overflowing during that month He is serenely confident that Chicago will be the place selected. ... ;. ..; CANNOT BECOME A CITIZEN. Cheong Woo Bang, a native of China appeared at the clerk's office to-day, for j the purpose of becoming a citizen of the j United States. He stated that he came here when fifteen years of age, and resided here continuously since, excepting a short j time spent in China on a visit. He has been educated here and joined a Christian I church, and desired to remain a citizen of ! this country. The clerk decided that no j relief could be given him ir consequence of the act of May Gth, 1882, which provides "that hereafter no state court or court of the United States shall admit the Chinese to citizenship." TEICE VVZ. Secretary Folger to-day rendered a de cision settling the contest over the classifi cation of rice meal and small rice, broken, into small particles in process of cleaning. The secretary holds that these qualities are subjeot only to duty of twenty per cent, advalorum, instead of one-half cent per pound, as charged upon the cleaned rice. This question is of great importance to brewers, as this small rica has, the pest few years, entered largely into the manu facture of the best grades of beer.
