Chicago, 111., April 14.— York started 1
the bull movement in wheat this morning,
advancing about %c before the Chicago mar
ket caught the infection. This market
seemed for a little while to be waiting for the
New York one to come to it, but was finally
compelled to follow in the up-turn. Under
the urgent demand from shorts the price of
May wheat advanced at one time l%c from
opening figures, but nearly one half of this
advance was afterwards lost. The bullish
Influences were better cables, higher domestic
markets and further reports of damage to
winter wheat. The fact that foreign mar
kets show a disposition to follow the advance
here is the most encouraging feature of the
situation, and indicates that the foreigners
take note of the probable short crop of winter
wheat in this country. There was good buy
ing both here and in New York to-day by
houses with a foreign clientage. It was said
yesterday that the market was held down by
Hutchinson, and not only was it relieved
from the pressure this morning, but the
trader named was a free buyer early. How
ever, it was his selling, largely through
other than his regular brokers, which caused
the decline later in the day. Jones, MeCor
mick and Kenuettwere perhaps the largest
buyers, and their purchases were con
tinuous through the day. Boyd, Jaxton
& Boyd were large sellers at the advance,
and brokers for Cud— and Ream were sell
ing most of the time. Bloom was a heavy
buyer. The trading was of large volume, but
it was still largely professional. What the
bulls hope for and the bears dread is a re
vival of general speculation. All are agreed
that it would mean higher prices, and that
the bears would not only be unable to stand
against the movement,but would be compelled
to help it by buying in their short wheat
There was a chance for everybody to be
suited in the corn market this morning.
Prices advanced l%c aud then fell back to
lower than the opening figures. Actual re
ceipts were much less th*n the estimate
again, and a small percentage only of con
tract grade. Rumors of a squeeze were more
numerous, and there seemed to be very' little
grain for sale, either at the opening price or
for some little way on the upward turn. At
about the top, however, it was noticed that
there was considerable selling by commission
houses of scattered lots of long corn in
which there was a handsome profit for coun
try customers. The demand from shorts fell
off some,' and some of them were encouraged
to sell more, and the market sagged with
only slight reactions to the close. The situa
tion in corn seems to be that there is a large
short interest and only moderate stocks of
corn in store and not much coming. .
If the longs ] can and will take
this corn and pay for it next mouth the
shorts may have to suffer, but if the longs at
tempt to realize and even up they will be
likely to find the bears making a weak mar.
ket for them. In the meantime the market is
extremely nervous and liable to sharp fluctu
ations. There was an unusually heavy spec
ulative trade in oats, with prices following
tne course of the corn market, strong and ad
vanciny early, to decline towards the close.
In provisions the week closed on a strong
market. In all the speculative lines the bull
side was regarded with favor to-day, and al
though the closings wsre considerably lower
than outside prices, a substantial advance
was established all around. Based on last
night's final quotations, the actual improve
ment in pork was [email protected]%c, in lard sc, and
in short ribs 5®7%c. Trading was active,
and more than ordinary interest existed.
Short ribs and lard more than divided with
pork the attentions of traders. May, June
and July were the favorite features, though
quite a fair amount of short ribs were sold
for August. Cash product was a little slow.
The estimates as to the decrease to be shown
in the visible supply of wheat by next Mon
day's statement range from 500,000 to 750,
--000 bu.
THE routine REPORT.
Chicago, April 14.— The wheat market,
considered strong all the week by the major
ity, experienced its greatest firmness and
activity and touched its highest point for the
week this morning. There were many minor
arguments on the bull ' side, but authentic .
crop reports were more powerful than any
thing else in lifting prices. At this point
there was such general buying that individ
ual deals were lost sight of until toward the
close, when it was pretty clear that several
operators were big buyers. Even after the
top had been reached for the morning, and
there had been a half-cent reaction, the
operators who had realized and taken their
profits were believers in still higher prices.
The action in May was as follows: Opening
at 78% c sold straight up to 79% c, back to
79<[email protected]%c up the second time to 79% c
back to 79% c, up to 79% c, and back shortly
before the close to 79 closing at that figure.
The action In corn to-day was an uncommon
one. In less than one hour after the opening
of the session futures sold about l%c over
closing prices last night, and at the close
prices were back to last night's figures. The
range was wide, but the volume of trading
was not as large as this would indicate. The
bulge was principally the resultof two things
—a shortage in receipts and a scarcity of
sellers when the stuff was wanted. May
started at 55% c, sold up to s(>%c and closed
at 55% c Oats turned a somersault with
corn. May. started ot 32 % c, where it closed
last night advanced to 33% and fell back
with corn and closed at 32% c, lc under the
best price of the day and %c under the close
yesterday. Provisions were moderately
active, stronger and higher, due to
the increased trading and advance in
grain, also to the large receipts and higher
prices for hogs. The syndicate was a buyer
and a seller, and assisted in advancing the
price of May pork from $14.20 to 14.40. A
good many scattering lots of long stuff came
out on the advance, and a recession to $14.30
followed, sales being at that figure. Septem
ber sold at $14.50. Short ribs were
active, Several of the large short
firms sent brokers in to buy. and
May advanced 12% c, selling to $7.31%.
One firm sold freely on the bulge, and a re
cession of 7%c followed, but last sales were
at [email protected]%c above yesterday's close. Lard ad
vanced 10c, but only closed 5c better than
yesterday. May sold at [email protected], and
closed at 72%.

change dull, but steady at $4.85% for sixty
days and $4.87% for demand. The stock
market to-day exhibited no change in its
temper from "that of the previous days of this
week ; the outside interest in the dealings was
reduced to the smallest proportions, while
. the business done was left entirely in the
hands of the professional element. Commis
sion people were conservativly bullish, but
the traders favored a further reaction, and
after the first few buying orders were exe
cuted the markets edged off slowly without
interruption during the remainder of the ses
sion. The bulls were confident of ; their
ability to prevent any material decline, how
ever, land did little or nothing; and the only
feature of the day was the firmness Fhown in
Richmond & West Point, St. Paul and Miss
ouri Pacific, all of which advanced slight
fractions. The opening was quiet, and while
irregular was generally lower. Some strength
was shown in the early trading, however, '.
and gains ranging up to % per cent were es
tablished, but the improvement was soon lost
and the market became extremely * dull and
entirely devoid of feature of any kind.
Prices continued to sag until the close, which
was dull and heavy at about the lowest prices
reached. The final changes were generally
in the direction of lower figures, but in no
case exceeded half . per : cent The : rail
road bond ; market was fairly active,
but the market, . like stock,- : was ~ de
void .of / feature, ;: and >'■ while a •.'-: few
issues made advance, the list for the most
part was quiet and without motion. The sales
were $653,000. Government bonds were
dull ami strong. State bonds were neglected.
Petroleum opened firm at 80%, and after the
first low ■ minutes became strong and ad
vanced to 82%. .There was a slight reaction
caused by realizing sales, but sales were well
taken and the market closed strong at 82%.

proofs of service of said order and the peti
tion of The St. Paul Trust company, re
ceiver herein, filed February 28, 1888, for
leave to make an assessment upon premium
notes, which petition contains a summary :
statement of the assets of said insurance
company which had come to the possession
or knowledge. of said receiver, and of the
verified claims which had been filed with
said receiver, and by it filed in this court,
under the said order of October 10, 1887.
And it appearing to the satisfaction of the
court, that duly verified claims against said
insurance company for losses under its pol
icies, and for expenses of conducting its
business, have been filed with said receiver,
and by it filed in this court, without objec
tions, and now remaining unpaid, amount
ing to 828,080.24;
And that similar claims have been filed
with said receiver, and by it filed in this
court, with its written objections to the al
lowance thereof, amounting to 826,373.72 ;
And that verified claims against said in
surance company, for unearned premiums
on its canceled policies, have been filed with
said receiver, and by it filed in this court,
with its objections to the allowance thereof,
amounting to 50,703.48 ;
Audit further appearing to the satisfac
tion of the court, that the assets in the hands
of said receiver belonging to said insurance
company will not be sufficient to pay the
costs and expenses of the said receiver, the
preferred claims and other claims for sala
ries, wages, labor and other expenses in

ducting its business, and the claims for losses
under its policies, so filed and reported, with

for losses under its policies and for expenses
of conducting its business, and to which no
objections have been filed by said receiver,
amounting to 828,080.2-1, with interest ac
crued and to accrue thereon.
Second— Why this court shall not, from
time to time, upon the motion and applica
tion of said receiver, and without further

claims for losses under said policies, or for
expenses of conducting its business, as have
been heretofore filed in this court by said re
ceiver, with objections thereto, or as may
hereafter be duly filed, and which shall be
hereafter duly adjudicated as valid claims and
demands against said insurance company, in
whole or in part.
Third— Why the said assessments so to be
made shall be sufficient to also provide for
the payment of said claims for unearned
premiums so filed, amounting to 86,703.48,

claims for unearned premiums as may bo
hereafter filed as claims against said insur
ance company.

ance company, to the address of such per
