AN UNEVENTFUL DAY. Trading in Clricago Confined Chiefly to Home Specula tors Yesterday. May Wheat Touched $1.03, But Set tled Back to Opening Prices- Corn and Lard Steady. Strong Demand For Hogs With But Limited Receipts---LesscActivity In Provis ions—-Flour Dull. Considerable Liveliness in Wall Street With Light Fluctuations aud a Decline at the Close. CHICAGO. [Special Telegram to the Globe. 1 Chicago, Feb. 12.—Home talent is having it pretty much its own way on 'change these days. The universal skin game goes blithelj* on with very little outside intervention to vary the monotony, which can hardly be called monotony, since the excitement oc casioned in a contest between well matched Combatants is necessarily greater than when t'ie foe is weak and easily beaten. The clash of steel against steel enlivens the bat tle with showers of sparks, while if one weapon be of wood it is easily broken and the enemy quickly vanquished. The amount of finesse and strategy made daily use of by large houses on the board of trade, and that Mecessarily sharpened by the present condi tion of things would, if laid bare and open to the understanding of the average country speculator, materially weaken his hopes of ever being able to cope with such giants of diplomacy us are shining lights among our home talent. There is no long wheat, said a trader to-day, unconscientious^* illustrat ing the above situation of affairs. Jones and Ream are long through the newspapers, but they are not long on the market. Early morning quotations were an illustra tive of considerable strength all round. There was, for an hour or so, a good deal of short wheat covered and price of wheat for May advanced from $1.0234 at the opening to §1.03. From this point a gradual decline started, resulting in a loss of all that had been gained. It is said that there were a number of heavy holders who bought a few days at §1 or slightly above, and satisfied with a sure profit of lj£(g)2c unloaded and took it. The continued bad weather and in creasing disaster by flood, while it has abso lutely nothing to do with the pres ent crop is successfully used as a bull argument. Its real Influence in that direction is insignificant in the effect it will have on the finances of the country. The strength in provisions to-day was hard ly so marked as it has been for the past week. An advance in pork amounting to about 20c was scored, but lost at the close. Less activity is observable in all artioles On the list. May pork closed to-day at $18.27>£, after reaching §18.50. There are plenty of provision men who have faith that it will go to «20. There was considerable improvement in the com market to-day, the opening being %c above yesterday's close and scored an actual gain of %c. There is some reason why the condition of the weather should be called to account for iluctutions in corn and the bulls will undoubtedly make the most of it. On the whole there was little of interest tran spired to-day in connection with local tran sactions in grain and provisions but it is whispered that the bears are tuning their fid dles and expect soon to lead the bulls a lively dance. On call, wheat was active and freely offered, and closed at 1.02% for May. Corn and pork were a shade higher, lard and short ribs steady. On the curb grain was light, but a stronger feeling developed in wheat until 3 o'clock, when it became weak, and a similar feeling was developed in pork and ribs. Corn and lard were steady. The closing quotations bid for May were: Wheat, $1.02^; corn, 59>^c; oats, 27>ic; pork, £18.27>£; lard, $10.10; ribs, S9.02K- Receipts of cattle show a falling off of 1,000 as compared with last Tuesday, and about 3,000 for the two days of the week so far. The market ruled rather dull during the early hours of the evening. A pouring rain, that congealed al most as fast as it fell, rendered outdoor operations difficult and unpleasant bo most of the buyers remained inside until nearly noon, the general impression being that should the weather contiue bad, trade would rule quiet, and that perhaps.price might rule a shade lower. The sales that were made during the morning show no particular change, andthere a good many salesmen who made up their minds that before they would accept much of a decline, they would cam* over their consignments. Receipts are higher and the chances are in favor of the tellers. Receipts of hogs were about the same as last Tuesday, and about 1,000 less than for the corresponding period last week. The market opened with a strong demand and a short upturn in prices, advances being uneven, ranging all the way from 10c to 21c. Packers, shippers and speculators were ready buyers, hogs sell ing as soon as could be after leaving the chutes. Trade in sheep was quiet, owing to the bad weather. Then, again, rumors were floating about of the inability of some railways to take stock east on account of the floods, but the rumors wouldn't stand the test of investiga tion. There was little or no change, yet salesmen felt an apprehension that the big receipts were rather against a brisk trade, and common and medium remained unsold. Howard, White & Co. review the flour market to-night as follows: Receipts for the past week were 99,705 barrels, against 112, 635 barrels for the previous week, and 63,724 barrels for the same period last year. Shipments were, 14,197 barrels for the past week, against 101,924 for the previous week, and 1,693 same week last year. The ship ments as reported for last year, are not cor rect, as eastern roads did not give any report at that time. The demand has been exceed ingly limited from all sources and there ap peared to be no desire to buy beyond aetua requirements. Local jobbers selected a few small lots, but did not manifest the least disposition to stock and acted very indiffer ence. The shipping demand has been next to nothing. A few Canadian ordors were received, but generally for special brands or grades, so that buyers to fill these orders did not come on the open market to purchase. Nothing is doiifg on European account though occasionally an order was received, but limited so far below sellers' ▼lews that it was impossible to trade. Spec ulation in wheat has not as yet helped the flour trade, and millers have shut down to some extent, and the quantity manufactured has been smaller. The receipts at this point have been 1,200 barrels le6s than last week. No encouraging feature appeared, the foreign mar ket being glutted with flour, which is being supplied from all over the Dailu globe, that received comprises mostly con signed stock. Prices remain unaltered; spring wheat flour ruled steady while winter wheat flour ruled firm and by some parties held a shade higher.

NEW YORK. ]Speclal Telegram to the Globe.] New York, Feb. 12.—It wa3 given out that Carnmack, "WoerisholTer arid Smith were the heaviest sellers of the market during the closing hour yesterday. The decline then inaugurated appeared to be hardly fin ished at the close. The dividend stocks showed great activity all day, especially Rock Island, Chicago, Burlington & Qaincy, St. Paul, Missouri Pacific and Union Pacific, and also the ex-Villards, but with the exception of two or three stocks, fluctuations did not exceed one point. At noon, Rock Island, Northwestern and Chicago, Burlington & Quincy made a sharp advance. From that time till the end prices fell off, and in the last ten minutes representatives of the old bear party paid their compliments to the list and sold it freely all around, making the lowest prices of the day. The "fancies" all were inactive all day, and neglected until the pressure was brought against the list then wilted easily. Omaha earnings for the first week in February increased $35,500; Chica go & Atlantic $4,000; Canadian Pacilic $10, 000. Manitoba earnings for the first week in February decreased $0,700.

[Special Telegram to the Globe.] Chicago, Feb. 12.—The secretary of the board of underwriters has addressed a circu lar to board agents, calling attention to the small business done, notwithstanding the great amount of grain in the elevators, and states that this indicates that the commission men were carrying their own risks and charging rural merchants with insurance, which gave them the impression that their grain was taken care of. In order to deter mine the. facts, the circular requests each of the agents to report by the 14th the amount of grain they are carrying, and states further that tbe secretary of the insurance exchange would make a similar request of non-board agents. When the returns are in they will be compared with the amount of grain elevators are carrying. One instance exists where a certain bank had to pay $50, 000 insuranee on grain burned in a Chicago elevator. Others were inclined to the opinion that commission men charged for in surance and did not insure, and that in the occasion of the burning of an elevator a good many shfppers would find themselves with out compensation for their loss. OHIO I'OLITICS. The Foster Element in Favor of Logan for President — Gerrymandering the State. Columbus, O. Feb. 12—The Rebublicans nnd Democrats are both actively at work now preparatory to the campaign of 1884. The recent interviews of Foster in the east against Arthur were part of a premeditated plan to get a delegation from Ohio to the Chicago ■ convention for Logan and Foster. The Fos ter element has been co-operating with Blaine for years but went to Logan on the ground that one of the nominees should be a soldier. The Republicans who went out of office with Foster the first of the year are going about the state organizing clubs of young Republi cans, of tariff men and workingmen and will, no doubt, capture the state convention. There seems to be no doubt whatever that the Democratic state convention will elect a solid delegation for Payne for President. The work now is in getting compaign thun der. The Republican think the Democratics legislature will keep them out. It has really already gerrymandered the state so as give the Democratics twelve of the twenty-one congressman sure, and the republicans six sure, with three doubtful. Five years ago the Republicans fixed them that way. And the Democratics got fourteen to their seven. They did it right after the decenial census when apportionment had to be made as one more congressman was given to Ohio. The present redisricting act was passed when there was no cause for it whatever ex cept for political advantage to those having power, and it may react. Another thing is the republicans look for popular dissaproval of the bill abolishing the contract system for prison labor, which it is said will run the state heavily in debt and be a demoralizing experience as well as a costly failure in the end. The general organization of the state institution has been agreed upon and it is always a heavy load for any party to carry for the first year. Immense crowds still throng the great assign ment sale of $40,000 worth of dry goods at 422 Wabashaw street. The bargains are unquestion able. For the accommodation of those who cannot attend during the day, the store will be open this evening. Indignant at the Charge of Complicity. [Special Telegram to the Globe.J Fargo, Feb. 12. —In the district court to day a demurrer to.the indictment against Chief of Police Wood, charging unbecoming conduct at a house of ill-fame, was overruled and the case stands for trial. At the close of the argument, District Attorney Ball made a personal explanation in reference to imputa tions made by individuals and in certain public prints. Referring to the Republican and Sun, charging the officers of the court with disreputable complicity in the proceed ings of these and similar indictments, and making disgraceful tenders of compromise, Mr. Ball indignantly denied on behalf of himself and Sheriff Haggert, that there was the slightest basis for the scandalous asper sions. His connection with the case, he said, was only such as required by his duty as a public officer. Judge Hudson also expressed very emphatic disapproval of the statements of the papers in question, and Col. Thomas, attorney for the defense, added his earnest regrets In the matter.

PAUL, MINN., WEDNESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 13. 1884. M0TI0X OF CENSURE. Salisbury and Northcote Assail the British Government on their Egyptian Policy. Strong Language Used by the Movers —Gladstone Comes to the Rescue of His Party. The Massacre at Sinkat—-The Women and Children at the Tender Mercies of the Oriental Cut-Throats. YES, ROUSE THEM. London, Feb. 12.—A number of the liberal members of the house of commons have petitioned the government, urging more direct interference in affairs in Egypt. ' In making his motion of censure, the Mar quis of Salisbury said, if the government had resolved either to hold or abandon Sennaar, General Hicks might have been saved. His • loss was due to their vacillation, their in difference and their inconsistancy, ending in a panic. The news would now run through the whole Mohammedan world, that England had been defeated again and again and again, and was now being hunted out of Egypt. England's name would be a lagacy of hatred and contempt to the Egyptians. In conclusion the marquis asked, whether the abandonment of garrisons, the slaughter of brave men and the surrender of women and children to the horrors of an Oriental victory, invovled no blood—guiltiness, and he_ exhorted the lords not to be accomplices in this dishonor. Gran ville, the foreign secretary, said the policy of the government was not directed according to the articles In foreign journals. Salisbury was laboring under a mistake if he meant to convey the impression that any European power had remonstrated with England. He protested against the idea, because a fc reign army selected English officers, England was thereby made responsible for that army's success. It would be no economy that the blood pf English soldiers should be shed to hold the Soudan, although Salisbury thought the government vacillating and inconsistent in not doing so. England and India had no interest in the Soudan, nor indeed, had Egypt any permanent interest in that country* Why this great sympathy for Sinkat and Tokar, which represented not more than a fiftieth of the troops in the Sou dan? It was necessary for the government to be careful, so as not clash with the larger views of General Gordon. The government, however, had ascertained it was not to inter fere with Gordon's plans, if a force were sent to act around Suakim with a view to the relief of Tokar. Since the defeat of Baker Pasha, it had been altogether impossible to relieve Sinkat, the government had no inten tion of annexing Egypt. It would remain there simply* long enough to secure a stable government, and it would be quite impossi ble to govern Egypt from Downing street. The only thing that could be done would be to appoint a first-rate man to repre sent England in Egypt, and then recom mend efficient men to the civil and military positions, and give their English support. The force of eircumstances obliged the gov goverument to go further than they pro posed, but the cabinet ought to restrict Eng land's connection with Eygpt to the object declared by the government. IN THE COMMONS. Northcote in the commons, made a motion of censure. He strongly denounced the sacrifice of Gen. Hicks. Egypt, he said, should have limited her operations to the country where she could succeed, or she should have made better provision for carrying the expenditure further. But in neither case did Egypt receive the support from England which she had every right to expect. Gladstone in rising to reply was greeted with loud and prolonged cheers. He met Northcote's motion with a direct negative. He denied that there were vacillation or inconsistency in the govern ment's Egyptian policy. Northcote used this phraseology in his motion for the purpose avoiding himself to declare a policy. The of situation in Egypt was not the situation that they had found. They had tried to keep in tact the interests of 300 millions who com posed the British empire. 0 Gladstone stated that 4000 men hsd been ordered to Sua Rim. Ganeral Gordon, he said, had a plan of his own forextracating the garrison and restoring the country to its former pacific condition. General Gordon's plaa would restore the former rules to the ancestral power usurped by Egypt. He denounced . as a gross error the duel control which has been had left him as a legacy. England had not withdrawn from the hands of the Egyptian government's control of its institutions. She had simply made Egypt to understand that the British military occupation of Egypt en tailed the necessity of seeing the British ad vice followed. Gladstone strongly opposed the reconquest of the Soudan, and in con cluding he asked the houso to accord the government an acquittal to which it was en titled. The debate then adjourned.
