BULLS TRIUMPHANT. i Strong Upward Turn in the Grain and Provision Market. ' May Wheat Goes Up with a Boom to $1.02 1-2, and a Belief that it Will go Still Higher. Pork Keeps Pace With it Reaching $18.35— Lard in Full Sympathy. A Great Opening In Wall Street, Followed by a Lively Rise aud a Lower Close. CHICAGO. [Special Telegram to the Globe, j Chicago, Feb. 11.—There was a little more inquiry for winter wheat flours on local ac count," and prices for these were shade firmer, but not generally higher. Other grades re main quiet and' unchanged. There is no shipping demand. Winter wheat flour is quotable at $firstname.lastname@example.org for good to choice; soft spring at $email@example.com, and Minne sota bakers' firstname.lastname@example.org; patents ranged at $5.50_J:0.25, and some brands were held higher; low grades, t»2.00(<63.25; rye flour, $3.00(«:3.35: buckwheat flour, $5.50(^0.00. The receipts of cattle at the stock yards were a shade higher on all descriptions of shipping and dressed beef cattle, but choice stuck, and stockers and feeders were steady and unchanged. There did not seem to be much of a demand for export grades, and but a limited demand for heavy cattle. There were some lots of this description on sale, lor which there had been no fair oilers made, and a lot that has been held here since Fri day was yet in the hands of the seller. Most of the salesmen were of the opinion that really fine and finished cattle would sell fur $7(a7.25, but thei-e was no particular demand for such to-day. Receipts of sheep were 2,000 less than on last Monday, and there was a sharp demand for good sorts, the best making a shade bet ter prices than on Suturday. Receipts of hogs were 1,000 less than on last Monday. Trade opened active and prices advanced a strong 5<U>10c on all sorts, the best heavy selling at $email@example.com, with one small lot of fancy at $7.40, the highest price fur the sea •on. At noon about al! t ie hogs had been sold, aud the market closed steady. TJus morning the much and long talked of new departure on the part of packers in bu\ iug hogs was put yu its trial at the stock yards. In early days of the packing busi ness in Chicago the custom was for the packer or his buyer to buy hogs straight, that is tak ug al their was in a lot big, little, good, bad and indifferent, the lot selling on its merits on the combined judgment of buyers and sellers. Gradually another sys tem grew up. The foreign market demanded a lighter description of products and then came the practice of sorting out the light from the heavy, and selling one for home and the other for foreign trade. With this grew up a system quite innocent as first viewed, but which has proven one of the most pernicious that ever infested the trade—that known as "shrinking." The practice was to hire a keen-eyed active boy to follow the animals to the scale aftea the price had been made, and then, after the stock has been weighed to in sist on a dockage of from forty to eighty pounds on every animal that did not come up to the exacting standard set up for him by his principals. As a matter of course there has always been a good deal of irritation and bickering over this practice. The commission man was placed at a disadvantage. His stock was weighed and driven out of the pens and he either had to submit to all that was demand ed by shrinkers or take his stock back to tho pens which, say on a steady or falling mar ket, was a risk but few would assume. The more active and exacting was the shriuker, the better were his chances of promotion and advancement and it was generally expected of the shriuker to make enough to pay his own and the wages of men over him from day to day. In course of time there also grew up a change in way .of doing business by pack ers on change. Instead of buying their stock for the days work early in the morning as tliey did at the beginning of their career they waited until after the market opened and they could sell in advance of buying, making a sure thing on the profit. Thus while buy ers for packers sat around stoves, in scale houses or on fences, according to the state of the weather, awaiting their orders, the active and venturesome scalper speculator or mid dle man had the hogs all bought or options on them, so that when the buyer for the packer came on the market he was com pelled to buy of the scalper or of the commission man who is often the scalper's partner. Right here is where the packer felt the pinch, as his profit that he had on his sale on 'change disappear ed when he was compelled to buy of the scalper, who claimed his division of the trade made. It should be borne in mind that tie great body of these scalpers graduated under the teachings of the packers, and that they thoroughly understood their tactics and se cret movements. The system has opened up all manner of jollusion between commission men, scalp ers and buyers, for packers. The commission man who is not above temptation can weigh up his hogs to a scalper early in the morning, and at a later hour they may have been sold at an advance, the commission men and the ■calper dividing the sum stolen from the countryman. Then again, a buyer for a packer, should he be not without temptation, can be in partnership with a scalper, give Jiim the "straight tip" as to his principals intentions, and finally buy hogs and then divide spoils. Of course where everybody is strictly honest nothing of the sort is likely to happen; but there is evidently something wrong. Mr. Armour has jirobably discovered the legs of the old man of the sea dangling from his shoulders and is making an effort to throw them off. Will he succeed? This is' the first instance in the history of trade in Chicago where a packer was both a buyer and seller. Mr. Armour's orders to his buyers are, to sort out what they want and sell the rest to anyone who will purchase. The winter wheat offerings were meagre and tbe market quiet and firm. No. 2 red is quotable at $1.01@$1.03, depending on lo cation; No. 3 red is quoatable at 92@92}_c for south side receipts; rejected red, by sample, sold at 80c, No. 3 red at 75e, and choice at $ 1.02. Spring wheat was in good demand, with the market firm. No. 2 car lots dated Feb. 6 and since, 6old at 94>£@95c, and last sales of car lots at 95c. Receipts dated prior to Feb. 6 quotably %@%c less. Round lots closed at about 95%c; No. 3 nominally 78@82c, depending on location. By sample rejected sold at 70 @82c, and No. 3 at 85@92c, with the demand good for choice samples. A bull article in a morning paper yeport ing blizzards coming down'from the far west, c.tt-1 continued and increasing floods on the Ohio; with heavy purchases for milling purposes, and stronger cables, were the stock in trade this morning of bulls. The shorts had meditated over Sunday upon the heavy purchases made by strong parties on Satur day, and when arguments above cited were denied, they were speedily connected and commence! to change their attitude. Re ports from the New York stock markets in dicated a boom and there were some genuine buying ordeia fn.m Indiana and Ohio, evi dently based upon damages, present and prospective, of high water. Later it became known that some of the whilom bears really changed their position of Saturday and to-day were quietly but persistently purchasing grain which smaller imtators and toilers were of fering. On 'change, May wheat opened with sales nt$1.01$-fJ@L02# mostly at the latter figure sold to $1.02%, went back to $1.01%, then went with a rush to $1.01X and $1.02 simul taneously, then under heavy offerings it went down t j $1.01%, and at this point reniforce ments came from the provision side of the house and forced prices to $1.02%. It went off to'$1.01%,but.was soon hoisted to $1.02% with two trades at $1.02%, and closed firm at $1.02%. A. M. Wright says: "Those who have watched the market closely were well satis fied that the support came from the provision crowd, their object being to bull wheat as an additonal support to provisions," and this statement received color from the manner in which prices followed each other. The receipts of corn were 577 cars In the last forty-eight hours, of which 140 inspected contract. The activity in wheat and pro visions drew away the crowd of speculators and corn was during the morning's session dull, heavy and neglected. It opened steady at 59c and closed at 1 p. m. at the same fig ure. The market fluctuated only between 58%@59%c on split. Boker & Co. and Poole, Kent & Co. were the heaviest buyers, while Webber and Dow were the largest sel lers. Baldwin & Clark and Templeton sold some small jags. On call, wheat and corn were stronger on reports of higher prices in New York and Liverpool, and the confirmation of continued bad reports from the Ohio river country. Nearly 2,000,000 bushels of May wheat sold I1.0B& @X- Most of it brought $1.02# which was closing quotation. Corn closed at 59% bid. On the curb there was consid erable excitement, and wheat closed at $1.02}$ and corn at 59^ both bid. Shepard «fc Peacock say: "It seems to us that the trade are only beginning to realize the fact that our visible supply has been dis counted pretty heavily, and now that we are reducing it liberally each week a reaction from our late decline is but natural." Crittenden & Harney say: "We should get some reaction to-morrow, but believe we shall see higher prices, and would watch for declines and weak places to buy on. It is generally believed that a visible supply will show a deere ise of about 1,000,000 bushels when posted." Minor, Richards &. Co., said: "We expect sharp breaks from these rallies, but look for fctill higher prices, and would advise buying on breaks." Robert Lindblom & Co. said: "The local crowd is inclined to bull wheat, believing that it is necessary for the bull leaders to advance it further in order to be able to sell out. Aside from this there is the fact of a decrease in the visible supply and comparatively low prices to give legitimate strength to the long side. R'ports from winter wheat districts are uniformly better than for many years. The late reports are so extremely scarce that it creates comment, but there is yet time for the croakers to get their work in." Provisions took a strong upward turn, pork for May doing 35c better than the prophe sied $18. The market advanced in the pro vision list may be accouuted for from the fact that the receipts of hogs are continually falling in the expectations of even those most capable of estimating the condition of stocks. As expressed by active traders in this market, May pork is sure to sec $20, unless receipts increase very ma terially, and thera are no indications that they will do so. Trading was active in all hog products. A. M. Wright & Co. report pr >visions favorably influenced by the gen eral feeling. Mess pork opened 25c higher at $18 for May, and under free buying, to cover shorts and manipulations of bulls, sold to $18.C0, and closed on 'change at the highest figure. It is supposed that at the close most of tho -.hjrts had covered, but that deal is with packers, who can put prices where they please. Lard fully sympathized with pork, and un der an active demand, prices advanced 22}_ @25e per 100 lbs., and closed firm at highest prices. There was no shipping demand and buying was entirely for future delivery. Short ribs fully responded to pork and lard. Crittenden & Harvey say: "We don't be lieve It good policy to begin buying now, and while the market acts strong and higher, we think it safer to wait and watch for the top and try to make money on short selling." The closing on the curb was very strong with quotations for May pork §11.35, lard $10.15. Short ribs, $9.72J_* Chicago Financial, [Special Telegram to the Globe.] Chicago, Feb. 11.—The banks report a quiet ness in their line. Money is easy to obtain on board of trade and tip-top mercantile paper at from 5@7c per cent. Eastern exchange between city banks was rather firmer at 25c premium per $1,000. Clearings of associated banks were $S, 215,000 against $7,009,000 on Saturday. Orders for currancy were small. NEW 1 YORK. ] Special Telegram to the Globe.] New York, Feb. 11.—As was quite natural after the advance of last week, a slight reac tion occurred this morning. Leaders bought stocks on the decline and in a short time nearly the whole list became firm and ad vanced. Northwestern was marked up from 122 to 123%, Canada Southern followed, ris ing from 56% to 57X? and Chicago, Burling ton & Quincy touched 127}<f. An hour later Rock Island was the feature, touching 126%, having sold at 122 when business opened. Among non-dividend payers Minneapolis & St. Louis common and preferred attracted the most attention later, selling from 34 to 36>_* Consolidation of opposition telegraph lines and their attitude towards the Western Union kept this st jck comparatively quiet and it had up hill work in getting above opening figures. The weak spots to-day hav 3 been Oregon Trans continental and Northern Pacific. They de clin.d in the face of all their surroundings and appeared to be without support or friends. As the shorts covered in the Rock Island excitement ceased, the stock settling back to 123%. Grangers continue to show excellent earn ings. Northwestern, the first week in Feb- | ruary, increased $79,000 and St. Paul $91,- j 000. Union Pacific December earnings, it is said, will show a decrease of $280,000. Ii is not likely that good stocks will be de pressed much below present figures. In the closing thirty minutes Union Pacific, Oregon and St. Paul were all hammered by the bull party, and the list showed a decline all round. Early in the day young Vander bilt's brokers bought heavily of Canada Southern, and some 9,000 shares at noon. Vanderbilt brokers bought 4,000 shares of ST. PAUL, MINN., TUESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 12, 1884. Rock Island, and the stock jumped from 122 to 126%. There is talk of a bull pool in Delaware & Hudson for an 8 per cent. rise. THE QUEEN'S NEW BOOK. It Treats Principally of Personal Mat ters and Doings. The Work is Told Simply, and in Many Parts Very Effectively. John Brown Comes in for the Lion's Share of the "Work—It is Readable. London, Feb. 11.—The queens' new book was distributed to the press thi3 morning. It consists of a disconnected diary, from Au gust 21, 1862, to September, 1882, with a long gap from October, 1S79, to the final date, covering the period of transition from the administration of Baconsfield to that of Glad stone. The entire book is devoted to domes tic and family affairs and political allusions are only incidental. The illustrations are numerous and include portraits of the queen and the Princesses Elenor, Louise and Beat rice. Also a portrait of Grant, of the queen's body servant, and one of her late at tendants, John Brown. There are pictures too, of the queen's collie dogs. Sharp and Noble, and several views of scenes in the Highlands, from sketches by the Princess Beatrice. In the preface the royal authoress says: "Remembering the feeling with which our'Life in the H'g.iisnds' was received, the writer thinks the present volume may equally evoke sympathy, as, while describing a very altered life, it shows how her sad and suffering heart was soothed and cleared by excursions and the incidents it recounts, as well as by the simple moun taineers, from whom she learned many les sens of resignation and faith in the beautiful Highlands." After a dedication to the "Loyal Highlanders, and especially to the memory of her faithful attendant and friend, John Brown," the diary opens with the building of the memorial cairn in honor of the prince consort. It reads as follows: "We started off in a little pony chair, led by Brown, Bertrie (Prince of Wales) in front, Elenear and Louise on ponies, and our two little boys, Arthur and Leopold. I actually drove in the little carriage to the very top of the craig. Lowrigan, Grant and Duncan were pushing the carriage behind with sweet baby Beatrice. We found at tbe top a view that was so fine, a day so bright, and heather so beautiful pink, but no pleasuse, no joy— all dead. Here at the top is the foundation of the cairn to be erected to the memory of my precious Albert. I and my poor six or phans all placed stones on it, and our initials are to be placed on stones all around it." Several succeeding entries in the dairy men tion other visits to the prince's cairn, along with family records and remarks of her do mestics. The following may serve as an ex ample of the latter. "When near the cairn Grant said: 'I thought you would like to be here to-day, on his birthday.' So entirely was he of the opinion that this beloved day, and even the 14th of December, the anni versary of his death, must not be looked upon as a day of mourning. There is so much good and strong faith in these simple people. In October, 1863, when making an excur sion from Belmoral to Clovar, the carriage was overturned, the face and right hand of the queen were bruised, and Brown's knees were badly hurt. The succeeding entries recur to Brown's injury. "I was much dis tressed at breakfast to find that poor Brown's legs had been dreadfully cut at the back of the knees, and he said nothing about it; but to-day, one became so inflamed, swelled so much, he could hardly'move. The doctor said, he must keep it as much as possible, a d wal; [/very littlj; but he did not forbid his going out with the i carriage* I did not go out in the morning. \ The next day, October 12, the queen writes: "Brown's leg is much better. The doctor thought he'could walk over tho hill to-mor row." When making the first visit to Glassalt Shiol mountain lodge in 1868, the diary de scribes the house warming as follows: "Brown came to say that all the servants were ready. There were present Louise, Ar thur, Jane, Lady Churchill, and a number of domestics and policemen. We made nineteen altogether. Five animated reels were danced, in which all but myself jofned. After the first reel whisky toddy was brought round for everyone, and Brown begged I would drink to his fire kindling. The merry, pretty little ball ended at 11, but the men went on sing ing in the [steward's room for some time. All were very happy. But sad thoughts filled my heart, both before dinner and when I retired to rest. I thought of my darling husband, whom I fancied must see and who always wished to build here. Then the sad thought struck me that it was my first wid ow's house, but I am sure his blessing rests on it." In 1871 the queen witnessed a Scotch communion service, on Sunday, at Crathic church, near Balmoral. She writes- "The communion Is most touching and beautiful. It impressed and moved me more than I can express. It is impossible to say how deeply we were impressed by the grand simplicity of the service. It was also truly earnest. No Christian can do justice to the oerfect devo tion of the whole assemblage. I longed much to join it, to see* all these simple good people in their nice, plain dresses, including the old women in her mutch. So many whom I knew, and some who had walked far, although they were in deep snow, was very striking. Since 1873," the queen adds, "I have partaken of communion at Crathie every autumn." On October 3, 1870, the Princess Louise became engaged to the Marquis of Lome an event which took place, the queen says: "During a walk from Glassalt Shiel to Dhu lock, where Louise had gone with Lady Ely, the lord chancellor and Lome. Louise on returning at night told me that Lome had spoken of his devotion to her, and had pro posed to her. She had accepted, knowing I would approve, though I was unprepared for this result. I felt painfully, at the thought of losing her, but naturally I gave my consent, and could only pray that she might he happy* The sole reference to the events in Frame in 1S70, occurs in speaking of the sermon which she heard in the church at Balmoral. She says: "Doctor MacLeod gave such a splendid sermon on the war, without men tioning France. He said enough to make every one understand what he meant when he painted how God would punish wickedness and vanity and sensuality. The chapter he read from Isaiah, 28th, and from Ezekiel and Amos, and psalms, were really wonderful for the way in which they seemed to describe France. It was admirable and heartstirring. Then the prayers were beautiful, in which he spoke of the sick and of the dying, the wounded upon the battle field, and of my sons-in-law and daughters."
