Mi UNEVENTFUL DAY. Irading in Chicago Confined Chiefly to Home Specula tors Yesterday. May Wheat Touched 81.03, But Set tled Back to Opening Prices- Corn aud Lard Steady. Wrong Demand For Hogs With But Limited Receipts—Less=Activity 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. | Chicago, Feb. 12.—Home talent is having It pretty much its own way on 'change these lays. The universal skin game goes blithely Ml with very little outside intervention to »-ary the monotony, which can hardly be jailed monotony, since the excitement oe- UMoned in v contest between well matched combatants is necessarily greater than when the foe is weak and easily beaten. The .•lash of steel against steel enlivens the bat le with showers of sparks, while if one reapon be of wood it is easily broken and he enemy quickly vanquished. The amount )f finesse and strategy made daily lse ; of by large houses jn the board of trade, and that lecessarily sharpened by the present condi ion of things would, if laid bare and open ,o the understanding of the average country (peculator, materially weaken his hopes of •ver being able to cope with such giants of liplomacy as are shining lights among our lome talent. There is no Jong wheat, said i trailer to-day, unconscientiously illustrat or the above situation of affairs. Jones ami [learn are long through the newspapers, but ihey are not long on the market. Early morning quotations were an illnstra :ive of considerable strength all round, ["here was, for an hour or so, a good deal of ihort wheat covered and price of wheat for ifay advanced from $1.02% at the opening of 1.03. From this point a gradual decline started, resulting in a loss of all that had jeen gained. It is said that there were a lumber of heavy holders who bought a few lays at $1 or slightly above, aud satisfied vith a sure profit of l}^(c//ic unloaded and ;ook it. The continued bad weather and in- Teasing disaster by flood, while it has abso utely nothing to do with the pres :nt crop is successfully used is a bull argument. Its real influence in hat direction is insignificant in the effect it rill have on the finances of the country. The strength in provisions to-day was hard ly bo inurked as it has been for the past reek. An advance in pork amounting to iboiit 20c was scored, but lost at the close, activity is observable in all articles on he list. May pork closed to-day at $16.27^, iter reaching $18.50. There are plenty of irovision meu who have faith that it will go :o $20. There was considerable improvement in he corn market to-day, the opening being Ig'c above yesterday's close and scored an ctaal gain of %c. There is some reasou why he condition of the weather should be called 0 account for lluctutious in corn and the mils will undoubtedly make the most of it. )n the whole there was little of interest tran spired to-day in connection with local tran sactions in grain and provisions but it is vhispcred that the bears are tuning their tid lles and expect soon to lead the bulls a ively dance. Ou call, wheat was active and reely offered, and closed at 1.02% for May. Dorn and pork were a shade highej; lard and short ribs steady. Ou the curb grain was light, but a stronger leelfng developed in wheat until 3 o'clock, iriien it became weak, and a similar feeling nras developed in pork and ribs. Corn and ard were steady. The closing quotations 3jd for May were: Wheat, $1.03)-£; corn, >9)£e; oats, 27>£c; pork, $18.27%; lard, 1 10.10; ribs, $9.62%. Receipts of cattle show a falling off of 1,000 as compared with ast Tuesday, aud about 3,000 for the two lays of the week so far. The market ruled •ather dull during the early hours of the svening. A pouring rain, that congealed al nost as fast as it fell, rendered mtdoor operations difficult and unpleasant io most of the buyers remained inside intil nearly noon, the general impression telng that should the weather contiue bad, rade would rule quiet, and that perhaps price night rule a shade lower. The sales that were nade during tbe morning show no particular diange, and there a good many salesmen who nade np their minds that before they would iccept much of a decline, they would carry )ver their consignments. Receipts are ligher aud the chances are in favor of the tellers. Receipts of hogs were about the same as ast Tuesday, aud about 1,000 less than for ;he corresponding period last week. The market opened with a strong lemand and a short upturn in prices, idvances being uneven, ranging all the way Irom 10c to 21c. Packers shippers and ipeculators were ready buyers, hogs sell ng as soon as could be after leaving the :hutes. Trade in sheep was quiet, owing to the bad reather. Then, again, rumors were floating ibout of the inability of some railways to take itock east on account of the floods, but the •umors wouldn't stand the test of investiga .ion. There was little or no change, yet talesmen felt an apprehension that the big •eceipts were rather against a brisk trade, md 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, -535 barrels for the previous week, and 33,724 barrels for the same period last year. Shipments were, 14,197 barrels for the past reek, against 101,924 for the previous week, md 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 it that time. The demand has been exceed ngly limited from all sources and there ap peared to be no desire to buy beyond actua requirements. Local jobbers selected a few jmall 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 orders ft rere received, but generally for special brands or grades, so that buyers to fill these arders did not come on the open market to purchase. Nothing is doirfg on European account though occasionally an order was received, but limited so far below sellers' riews that it was impossible to trade. Spec ulation in wheat has not as yet helped the lour trade, and millers have shut down to some extent, and the quantity manufactured lias been smaller. The receipts at this point have been 1,200 barrels less than last week. No encouraging feature appeared, the foreign mar-. tet being glutted with flour. ft'hieii ia being supplied from all over the »«fr r^^^^^\ Jfvd^ "tit "♦ globe, that received comprises mostly con signed stock.

NEW YOKK. ]Special Telegram to the Globe.] New YORK, Feb. 12.—1t was <riven out that Cammack, Woerishoffer aftd 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 & Quiney, 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, aud neglected until the pressure was brought against the list then wilted easily. Omaha earnings for the first week in February increased 835,500; Chica go & Atlantic 84,000; Canadian Pacific 810, -000. Manitoba earnings for the first week in February decreased 80,700.

How Chicago Commission Men Reap Profits by Not Measuring Grain. [Special Telegram to the Globe.] Cmcvao, 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 risk 3 and charging rural merchants with insurance, which gave them the impression that their grain was taken care of. In order to deter mine th* facts, the circular requests each of the agents to report by the 14th the amount of grain they are carrying, and states further that the secretary of the insurance exchange woull 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 insurance 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 burniu<-of an elevator a good many shippers would find themselves with out compensatiou for their loss. OHIO "'OLITICS. The Foster Element in Furor of Logan for President — Gerrymandering the State. COLUMBUS, O. Feb. 12—The Rebublicans and Democrats are both actively at work now preparatory to the campaign of ISS4. The recent interviews of Foster in tbe 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 terelemeut has been co-operating with Blame 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 gerrymirudered 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 AVabashaw 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.—1n 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.

FEBRUARY 13. 1884. motion of censure. Salisbury and Northeote Assail the British Government on their Egyptian Policy. Strong- Language Used by the Movers —Gladstone Comes to the Eescue of His Party. The Massacre at Sinkat—The Women and Children at the Tender Mercies of the Oriental Cut-Throats. TES, HOUSE 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 inconsistency, 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 wa< now being hunted out of Kgvpt. England's name would be a lagacy Of haired 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 i 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 f< reign i army selected English ollicers, England was thereby made responsible for that army's ! success. It would be no economy that the i blood of English soldiers should be shed to hold the Soudan, although Salisbury thought the government vacillating and inconsistent i in not doing so. England and India had no interest in the Soudan, nor j indeed, had Egypt any permanent interest in that country* Why this great sympathy for Sinkat andTokar, which represented uot more than a tiftieth 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 aircumstances 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. Northeote 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 aud prolonged cheers. He met Northeote's motion with a direct negative. He denied that there were vacillation or inconsistency* in the govern ment's Egyptian policy. Northeote 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 iv tact the interests of 300 millions who com posed the British empire. 0 Gladstone stated that 4000 men hsd been ordered to Sua Kirn. General 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.
