THE COMMERCIAL RECORD.
Speculation Was Lively Yesterday With
Wheat and Corn Both Higher
Than Wednesday.
There Was Only a Moderate Trade in
Pork and Ribs and Lard Re
mained Firm.
Transactions in the Financial Circles of
Wall Street—The General
Quotations.
Special to the Globe.
Chicago, March Speculation set off on
'change this morning at a rattling pace.
Wheat opened higher on the cold weather,
and corn opened higher because wheat did.
Early trading in May wheat was on a basis of
77% c, and May corn was quoted at 49% c
The demand was active in both pits, but the
Improvement proved to be a bulge, wheat
settling back to 77% c before 10:30, and corn
[email protected]%c At the decline the market
became dull, the determination of the bear
leaders to keep the prices of wheat down at
all hazards was strikingly illustrated by their
tactics this morning before trading began on
the board of trade. They found it necessary
to sell 1,500,000 bushels on the open board
call to keep May below 78c The prices once
touched 77% c, but it was beaten back to
77% c, and on the big board it was kept at or
under 77% c most 01 the se ssion. The bears
were content to let the market remain about
that figure. To put it there, they were forced
to mass their forces and sell 2,000,000 to
3,000,000 bushels early, and to keep it they
were obliged to be on the alert and fill up the
crowd when the buying spirit developed

is about over, seemingly, and the fact that
the pounding must now be with "short
wheat" is regarded by shrewd bulls
as a point in their favor. The
market is becoming largely over
sold and an oversold market is dangerous for
bears. The sudden cold snap extends over
un extensive section of winter wheat terri
tory, aud ,it cannot be. denied that such
weather is exceedingly Irving to the plant.
It is more than trying. It is positively and
certainly damaging. The bullishness gen
erated by existing weather conditions is
what the bears have to contend against,
Should these unfavorable conditions con
tinue any length of time the bears will find
themselves with dangerously extended short
lines aud the market ripe for a sharp reac
tion, which they may be powerless to pre
vent. This is the situation to.day. Receipts
of corn were 435 cars, and estimates for to
morrow are less than 350 cars. The big
rush seems to be over for the moment,
though country supplies are known to be
pretty nearly inexhaustible. Neverthe
less the market is strong and being
subjected to the tremendous artificial pres
sure that is keeping wheat down, the prices
advanced to 50c after the decline of early
morning, and the average for the session was
above 49% c. The market was quite bouyant
at times aud a decided bullish feeling de
veloped. Trade was large and a revival of
activity in the cash market was noted. Ex
porters were busy in corn as in wheat, and
business is brisk all along the line. The bear
party in provisions raided pork this morning,
but the selling was in the nature of a test of
the market. The leaders made a good deal of
noise without getting rid of any great quan
tity of property. May pork settled to $13.75,
but reacted easily to $13.95, and closed at
$13.92V2 ■ Only a moderate speculative trade
was transacted in pork and ribs, and lard re
mained firm with slight business. At the aft
ernoon session provisions were easier, with
mess pork 5c lower than at 1 p. m. Whom
closed unchanged. Corn steady and oats un
changed.
THE ROUTINE REPORT.
CniCAGO, March 22.— The big short sellers
of grain were in the pit 011 "change this
morning either in person or by their agents,
but it was simply to prevent a lallyanduot
to raid the markets as on yesterday. The
most interest centered in wheat, where the
cold weather had made the general crowd
bullish and caused some shorts to feel nerv
ous. When there was a flurry of buying,
the raiders filled the crowd up quickly
and then the pit was dull. The market
opened strong and and a fair reaction would
have taken place, but the raiders stood in
the wav and filled up the crowd and kept
prices from going much above their closing
points last night. May opened at 77% c, sold
at 77-'*'ic. declined to 77V8C and became
steady at 77%e, closing at 77% c. Corn did
not show as much strength as wheat, because
of large receipts and an increase in the
amount of contracts stuff coming in. May
corn opened "Ac over the close last night.
During the morning it looked as if the open
ing was to be the best price of the day, as
there was an early decline which took fu
tures to points a shade lower than last night's
closing. There was a little sur
prise in store, however, and before the close,
when the shorts tried to get the corn back,
there was little for sale. This caused a
scramble and an advance of % cents during
the closing hour, and made the closing prices
from % 7<tjc better than those of last night.
May opened at 49% c. sold down to 49% c,
gradually reacted to 49% c. and then bulged
t050%c, at which figure it closed. Oais
were steadfer to-day, and there was moderate
trading in May anil June, which improved
about %c, closing at 30% c for the former and
30%@30%e for the latter. Provisions were
moderately active and unsettled. The bears
raided pork and sold it off 20 cents in short
order. Buying by one or two houses caused
an irregular rally* of 15 cents. The feeling
was nervous, and sperators disposed to call
margins freely for protection. Bears take
advantage of any drop in values to cover,
and as the bulk of the selling has been by
sln>#ts. they keep the market fluctuating rap
idly. May pork opened at $13,921/2, sold at
$13.95, down to $13.75, rallied and closed
the same as yesterday, at $13.87%. Lard
was steadier, May selling at |7.52%@7.55.
closing at $7.55. Short ribs were active, one
house buying over 1,000,000 pound?, and
advanced prices 2*AC, May sold at $7.17%®
7.20, aud closed at the top. |ff3S

much more active to-day than for many

yesterday's loss was recovered. - There was a
flurry in the market during the early deal
ings, the main cause of which was the uncer
tainty in regard to the dividend on the Mis

question of whether it shall be 1% per cent
or nothing. Western Uniou to-day was one
of the strongest stocks on the list,
especially late in the day. The. usual
drive- was made at the list at > the
opening, but it was met with excellent
support and outside of Missouri Pacific aud
Western Union aud New England very little
impression was made upon the list. When
the recovery began there was a " marked I de

THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: FRIDAY MORNING, MARCH 23, 1888.
Northwestern difficulties were in a fair way
to be settled and more . confident buying for
the long account was noticed. The market
remained feverish for most of the day and
frequent and sudden changes from strength
to weakness and back again were made, but
: the improvement met with no important set
back until the close of business. - Missouri
Pacific opened at an advance of 2 , per cent
over last evening's closing price, but was
driven down quickly 3% per. cent, after
which it recovered a portion of the loss, but
remained, feverish and uissttled.. for the- re
mainder of the Jay, finally closing with a net
gain of % per cent. There was no special
movement in the rest of the list. The first
sales were made at irregular changes from
yesterday's final prices, but declines were in
a majority and the market was decidedly
weak in the early trading. The decline was
soon checked, however, and although the ex
treme activity lasted for over half an hour,
prices quickly recovered, and while the
market remained feverish for most of the
day, a steady improvemeut took place which
ceased only with the-dose of business. The
advance was specially marked in the last
hour, and the close was comparatively quiet
but firm to strong at the best prices of the
day for most of the list. There are a few
marked declines, and Colorado Coal lost 1 %
and Lake Erie & Western preferred 1 percent,
but Lackawanna gained 1%, Burlington &
Quincy, Delaware & Hudson and West
ern Union 1 per cent each. Rail
road bonds were '-quiet. Sales $947,000.
The market was generally heavy throughout
the forenoon, but stronger later in the day.

Flour— The market was no better to-day, to
say nothing worse of it. Nearly the same
prices were obtained on domestic sales, but
to meet the bids of foreign buyers required a
drop too great to be accepted. But little was
done on the markets abroad on that account.
There were reasonably large forward sales to
be filled and numerous calls for small
amounts for current use were received. Al
together these made up a quantity thatmoved
the day's production.
