THE DAY'S MARKETS; Provision Market Excited With a Continuation of Monday's Weakness. Pork Closed Lower on Trades Whieh Were Wholly Between Local Speculators. Wheat Went L'p Under Bullish Reports, bnt Settled in Sympathy with Provisions —Corn Moderately Active. A Weak Opening In Wall Street, But a Strong Close on Everything Except Ex-Villard'». CHICAGO. t [Special Telegram to the Globe. 1 Chicago, Feb. 19.—The stock of grain is attracting very general attention, and an at tempt is being made here, notably by A. M. Wright <fc Co., and by Charles Randolph, the secretary of the board of trade, to gather re liable statistics in regard to the visible supply, which shall at least approximate to correct ness. The following are the figures which have been gathered, and it will be interest ing to compare them with the fluctuating and unreliable so-called "visible supply" reports sent out from New York: Chicago elevators, as per official' returns, contain 12,761.937 bushels of wheat, 5,658, 169 bushels of corn, 1,596,022 bushels of oats, 1,757,809 bushels of rye, aud 260,194 bushels of barley, making a grand total of 22.034,131 bushels, against 21,001,299 bush els a year ago, and 12.000,229 bushels at this period last week. Vessels in the harbor are laden with 91,200 bushels of wheat, 741,360 bushels of corn and 101,765 bushels of oats. The total amount of grain in store and afloat here is 22,968.456 bushels, against 22,481.'.(46 bushels a week ago. Milwaukee warehouses are stored with 2,998,315 bushels of wheat, 18,397 bushels of corn, 2,506 bushels of oats, 25.690 bushels of rye and 634,454 bushels of barley. New York aud Brooklyn warehouses are stored with 4,831,359 bushels of wheat, 1,345,034 bushels of corn, 2,286,340 bushels of oats, 171,448 bushels of rye and 321,000 bushels of barley. The following figures compiled by Chas. Randolph, secretary of the board of trade, show the amount of grain in sight in this country, including stocks in store, afloat and in transit ou the 16th inst.; wheat, 34,212, 253 bushels; corn, 13,112,307 bushels; oats, 4,782f£37 bushels; rye, 2,302,223 bush els; barley, 2,145,315 bushels. Min neapolis is added to the points heretofore Included. The stock of wheat at that point is 2,620,000 bushels. Taking this out of the list the figures show a reduction in wheat during the week of about 550,000 bushels. Comparison will hereafter be made in this correspondence, with the re ports of the secretary of the board of trade of Chicago, instead of New York reports. The flour market was quiet and trading particularly light for the day, with home buy ers picking up a limited quantity daily but for shipping stock, little was doing, and ex porters have no buying orders. The finer winters and the better Minnesota springs were quite firmly held and above previous quotations, but otherwise no change was noticeable. Rye flour dull. Buckwheat flour slow, at from §5.50 for choice to not wanted at all when poor. Bran and all millstuffs slow. At the stock yards th receipts of cattle were about the same for the day and for the week as for the corresponding period last week. The demand for shipping cattle was slow,and prices were slow and a shade lower. The advance of last Saturday on shipping and dressed beef cattle was entirely lost yesterday, and there was no improvement to-day. There was a good demand for all descrip tions of butchers' stocks and several large lots sold at the high prices current. The de mand for stockers and feeders is only fair, the high prices, and the absence of the regu lar eastern buyers contributing largely to the dullness, The supply is not heavy. There were 2,000 more hogs received than for the corresponding day last week, and about 7,000 increase over last week for the corres ponding period. Trade opened dull and prices weak, with a decline of 10@15c. on rough packing and light hogs. There was less of a decline on really choice, and good heavy, and a few early sales of such were made at as high prices as yesterday, but the late arrivals shared the decline of common and light. The general market was dull and depressed from first to last, with 22,000 the 25,000 on sale, and a sharp decline on # provisions. One of the weak points about the market was the report that a good many lots of salt meats bought for European account had been resold, those for whom they were bought pre ferring to take their profits at this end. Milmine, Bodman & Co. say to-night: Provisions red hot. The clique still free sellers, and the country also very unsettled and uncertain market; very dangerous deal to touch. Shepard & Peacock say: The market is ir regular and not a little nervous, shdWing indications that inside operations have shifted part of their load at any rate and thrown it upon the outside." Crittenden <& Harvey say: "Prices are high enough^ to sell with safety but the market bears signs of manipulation and sell ing might prove hazardous." McConnick, Kennett & Day say: "Packers and insiders continue to sell heavily, and as the deal is manipulated they can put the market up or down at will." Robt. Lindblom & Co. say: "Provisions opefted very weak. The whole country is Jong and packers will likely put it low enough to wipe out all the margins. Those who en joy trading in it will have a chance to play against loaded dice. We would rather not attempt to "get ahead of that game." Wheat waa quoted quiet and steady in Liverpool, with a better tone for spot delive ries. Advices from Kansas reported cold weather, and the wheat fields covered with ice. These advices, with reports of cold weather in the northwest and an approaching storm from that section, caused a firmer feel ing at the opening, and the first sales were 14@%c over yesterday's close on call, and influenced by an active demand from the shorts, who had sold indiscriminately on yesterday's break, and the execution of buy ing orders from Kansas and other points, where there was a sleet scare, prices appreciated %@lc further; No. .2 opened at 99%@ $1.00&; May advanced to $1.00%@X- The advance checked the demand to fill orders, a majority of which were at about $1 and when the shorts were filled the weakness in provi sions increased the disposition to Bell wheat, the offerings including a good many lots bought late yesterday or early this morning for a scalp. It was also reported that the wave from the north was moving to the northeast through Canada and a further break in pork increased the pressure to real- L ize, and prices fell to the inside figures of the morning, when buying to fill orders as noted above and reports of improved export demand at the seaboard, again rallied quotations to $1.00 X ? but they broke on receipt of later selling orders from the outside and closed at $1.00# @1.00&. Corn was only moderately active, the de mand not being large and there were indica tions that holders of large lots were trying to sustain prices. There was little in the situa tion to inspire confidence, the reported stocks here showing a considerable increase over last Tuesday. The inspection was 359 cars, of which 81 were contract grades, against 45 yesterday. The buying was chiefly to cover shorts, but prices advanced y,c in response to the im provement in wheat, but later receded and closed >4(5 9»c under the highest prices. On the call there was a very lively time: 1,175,000 bushels of May wheat were sold at S1.email@example.com%, and 1,370,000 bushels May corn went at 59%@59%c. During the day the "big 4" were large sellers, as were also the "silver greys," i. e., the Adams'. Nat. Jones, was said to be the real party in 1,000, 000 bushels which were put up by Martin & Bennett, On curb wheat closed at $1.00%, and corn at 59%c. The provision side of the market was full of excitement nearly all day. The receipts of hogs were a trifle more liberal and they were in better condition. Liverpool reports were less favorable and showed a reduction of 9d in lard and lOd in bacon. The eastern markets were easy. The weak feeling of yesterday was continued to-day and although there were sales reported at $18.05 for May pork the real opening was $17.90. Prices dropped to $17.S'2>£. revived to $17.90, then quickly dropped to $17.77 1rr, advanced to $17.95, declined to$17.57, advanced to $17.80, went down to $17.65 aud then advanced to $17.70 and closed quite tirm at those figures. The trade was wholly between local speculators and the "big four" made reputed onslaughts upon the market which were characterized as the most reckless of any manipulations Which have been witnessed on the board since old Hutch took Charley Singer in hand and read him a $20,000 lesson in about five minutes. A good deal of stuff was thrown over for parties whose margins were exhausted and mauy outsiders and tailers were frozen out. Margins were called heavily, but local parties responded or at least settled their trades. The whole idea of the movement seemed to be: "Raid the market and get rid of the crowd." It was successful in this wise, and it also developed the fact that a good deal of the ■ stuff was owned by parties other than the big packers. Some of them as suggested in this correspondence were quietly unload ing and crediting up good profits. On the curb pork and ribs were steady but lard went off 2><@5c. There was a very weak spell and May pork closed at $17.60; lard at $9.72)£ and ribs at $9.25. The receipts of sheep were about the same as last Tuesday, but so far for the week a slight increase over this time last week. For straight, even lots of fat wethers, either fine or coarse wooled, the demand continues strong and prices rule steady. Lambs are also wanted, and to-day sold at higher prices. Big heavy ewes in a suspicious con dition are plenty and slow of sale. Bucks and coarse 6tock generally are al60 slow and the thin common sorts are not wanted. Let shippers send in good even lots and good flesh, either coarse or fine wooled, and they will find a ready sale, but all common or even fair lots should be bought this week with caution and judg ment, as the run will be heavy and prices rule lower. Common and mixed ruled somewhat lower toward the close of the day. Chicago Financial. [Special Telegram to the Globe.] Chicago, Feb. 19.—The offerings of board of trade and mercantile paper were only moderate, and as the supply of loanable funds continues largely in excess of all legitimate requirements, "A 1" paper was shouldered promptly at from 5©7 per cent. Eastern exchange between city banks is quoted at par .and 25c premium per $1,000. Bank clearings were $6,025,000, against $7,105,000 yesterday. A moderate amount of currency was forwarded to tho country. NEW YORK. [Special Telegram to the Globe. | New York, Feb. 19.—The market opened without feature, except the sharp recovery in Pullman. It was dead dull all the fore noon and barely steady. At noon the feel ing was firmer with St. Paul and Lackawan na looking stronger and advancing. Union Pacific was also put up. It was in demand by the shorts, looming at one time as high as l&per cent, per day for use, but the room thought it would be easier to-morrow. The books close to-day for the annual meeting to be held Mareh 5. Pullman was very strong in the closing hour fat $1.10>£ bid. Everything closed up strong except the Villard's—Union Pacific, Lackawanna and Pullman taking the lead. Bankers and Merchants telegraph 125# to 125%. The attacks on special stocks yesterday, were not renewed this morning. Prices were better fractionally at the opening with a marked advance in Pull man Palace. Buying of the grangers and other dividend payers continued during the morning. Union Pacific, which is still largely oversold, was remarkably well held, and the shorts were not able to get much cheap stock, though they forced it to 81}£ at one time. Del aware & Lackawanna divided the honors with Northern Paciflc,being quite active and firm. The changes in many of the others were un important though they held their own very well. The market was inclined to be dull at times which was natural after yesterday's excite ment. The same leaders who have been its main support of late do not appear to have ehangedtheir position, and bought stocks 11b eraUy when prices showed weakness.

Clearing Everything: Off. New York, Feb. 19.—It is learned that the firm of McGinnis & Fearing, whose sus pension was announced yesterday, effected a satisfactory settlement to-day with the Oregon & Transcontinental company, their principal creditor, and there is now no serious obstacle to their resumption. The stocks belonging to the Oregon & Transcon tinental company, due by McGinnis & Fearing, lt is stated, are 1,800 shares of Oregon Railway «fc Navigation, 1,100 shares of Northern Pacific preferred, and 6,200 shares of Northern Pacific common, none of which can come on the market. Total in debtedness to the Oregon Transcontinental company is placed at $97,000. In addition to the $20,000 due Mr. Pullman, the firm owes other customers about $50,000, which fills up *he entire liabilities. The assets are placed at $250,000 or $300,000.[,Mr. Gould is said to have sent his check to-day to the house for any amount, more than to meet the present immediate demands. NO. 51. CONGRESSIONAL The AU Night Session of the House of Representa tives. A Stormy Session, but Merrill'3 Mo tion Carried by a Largo Majority. The Senate Cannot Get the National Bank Bill to Salt Them. The Senate. WAsnnJGTOX, Feb. 19.—Senator Dawes, from the committee on Indian affairs, re ported formally the bill providing for the punishment of trespassers on Indian land by imprisonment for one year, or a fine of $500, or both. The action of the committee waa upon the recommendation of the secretary of the interior, and especially to keep Payne and his followers off the Oklahama lands. Senator Morrill, from the committee on finance, reported adversely the bill authoris ing; the payment of customs duties in legal tender notes, but asked, in deference to the wish of another senator, it be placed on the calendar. Also adversely on the bill provid ing for the retirement of small legal tender no*es. The bill to provide for the insane of circu lation to the national banks was taken up. Senator Bayard spoke in opposition to Plumb's amendment. After further discussion by Senators Maxey, Peek, Cook and Pugh, Senator Morgan said, he proposed to offer an amendment to the amendment of the senator of Kansas, to pro vide that "whenever any portion of the cir culation of the national bank be surrendered in consequence of a call, and, and payment of the bonds by the United States govern ment, an equal amount of treasury notes shall be issued by the government in lieu there of, so as to prevent shrinkage of the circulation." After an executive session the senate adjourned. ———_ The House of Representatives. Washington-, Feb. 19.—In the house dur ing the early hours of the morning, there was a scene of great confusion and excite ment. Hiscock attempted to have the bill read, and the Democrats objected with great emphasis. Hiscock was standing full in front of the speaker's desk, where he was surrounded by an excited crowd of adherents and opponents, and finally the disorder be came so great that the services of the ser geant-at-arms were required to restore some degree of order. Tucker, approaching to within a couple of feet of Hiscock, addressed him directly and called him to order. "The gent calls me to order," exclaimed Hiscock excitedly, "because his side is uu willlng to have advertised to the country the bill which they attempt to force through thia house." Hiscock, at one point in the debate, understood Morrison to say that seventy-live Democrat* had been here and skulked away. He was proceeding to make a strong point of this un derstanding of the case, when Morrison in terrupted to say that such an assumption was untrue. Mutual explanations followed, and the house again settled down into a state of active quiet. At C o'clock a motion was agreed to revoking all leaves of absence granted for this legislative day. At 8:15 a quorum was obtained, and Hewitt's motion, making the Mexican pension biU the special order for the 21st inst., was seconded by 105 to one, and the resolution was then adopted, yeas, 175; nays, 85. The announcement of the result was received with cheers by the Democratic side, and at 8:55 a. m. the house adjourned until Wednesday. DANVILLE INVESTIGATION. A Humorous Description of the Shoot* ing by a Colored Witness. "Ueah, Heah, Heah,Heah, Kill'em, Kill'em, Kill'em. Washington, Feb. 19.—In tho Danville investigation to-day W. P. Graves, (white) a commission merchant of Danville, testified that he was armed the day of the riot and fired four shots into the crowd of colored peo ple. The colored men were firing in his di rection and he returned the fire. He did not, however, see any pistols in the hands of the colored men. There was no conspiracy on the part of the whites to bring on the riot, but on the contrary, the whites exercised their influence to prevent the collision with the colored men. An intercepted letter con veyed the information that if the fighting took place down town the women and child ren on the borders of the town would be murdered in their houses. George Adams, colored, testified that after he was subpoenaed to Washington he was ap proached by Barksdale, Hatcher, Lea and others, who told him he "had better know damned little about the riot" when he went to Washington. Charles Adams, colored, testified that Graves, (the first witness,) shot him the day of the riot. He rolled up his sleeve and showed the scar of his wound. R.J. Adams, a colored policeman, said: Two months before the riot, the grand jury indicted the whole force and some others, white and blaek, for carrying concealed weapons. The colored people were poor and could not pay fines, and the white people were able to pay, and the outcome was, the colored people ceased carrying arms, and whites continued. Jefferson Hubbard, colored, witnessed the riot and thought there were 300 pistols went off, just like a pack of squibs. The whttea then commenced callin' "heah, heah, heah, heah, kill em, kill em, kill em, kill em, just like dat." He saw Captain Graves with a long pistol, which Graves discharged at witness, the colored people having run every way. The whites came from every direction with shot guns. The other witnesses added nothing to the information. The committee then adjourned. Extra Session. San Fbancisco, Feb. 19.—It is announced this evening on reliable authority, that the governor has decided to call an extra session of the legislature to take action in the mat ter of unpaid state and county taxes from the Central Pacific for the years 1880, 1881 and 1882, which, with interest and penalties amount to $1,074,000. It has been establish ed by law not to permit any compromise, and that the total amount must be paid. The proclamation will be issued in the latter part or the first of next week. Obituary. Wheeling, W. Va., Feb. 19.—Mrs. John McCalloch, widow of an old pioneer, and herself one of the oldest residents of Wheel ing, died to-day. Her husband was for years clerk of the courts, and her son, Samuel B. McCalloch, succeeded him. The latter's mysterious disappearance a few months ago, is still unexplained, and is believed to have been partially responsible for his mother's death. The family are descendants from the pioneer Maj. McCalloch, who made the fa mous leap near this city to escape from the Indians. Municipal Elections. Pittsburg, Pa. Feb. 19.—An unusually large vote was polled by the people at the mu nicipal elections to-day. Andrew Fulton, Republican for mayor, defeated Hon. Robert Riddel by 7,000 majority. In Allegheny City, J. G. "Wiman, Repub lican, is elected mayor over John Swat, Dem ocrat, by 600 majority. The Republicans have the majorities of the councils of both cities. The tobacco factory strike at Petersburg, Va. la ended.
