CuacAGO, May Wheat advanced %c on
the curb last night and held the improve
ment over night, opening strong this morn
ing at 89*"ic for June aud 90*"ic for July.
The market sold off lie aiad swung nervously
between 99%090%c for half an hour. Then
It took a sudden spurt and advanced lc,
June going to 90?ic and July to 914*30, with
scattering sales %c higher. There did not
Beem to be very heavy dealings on the bulge,
and at the top offerings were so heavy that
prices quickly worked back nearly lc. The
market was violent]; excited aaad country
orders were doubled. Wheat cables quoted
foreign markets as firm aaad tending up. Do
mestic markets urc all strong and the home
bears are in a state of alarm. The foreign
shorts have been called for margins savagely
during the past two or three days, and
last night the demands were renewed. The
foreigners are, as a rule, fortifying their
trades with remittances and "standing pat."
They do not run, as was expected of them,
when the price got above 90c. Neither are
they increasing their lines to any great ex
tent. Corn was dull and rather heavy for
future delivery, though May holds firm. Re
ceipts ot corn to day were 293 cars. Tho
early range was 5905914 c for May aaad 57%
@s'7'"ic for June. Provisions were quiet and
quotations early were $14.37%©14.42% for
July pork, $8.47% for July lard, and $7.62%
©7.67% for July ribs. Again wheat ad
vanced to 91% c", and this, too, in the
face of reports from New York to
the effect that Schwartz, Dupee &
Co. had wired that 5,000,00 of con
centrated long wheat had been sold on the
bulge. St. Louis parties overwhelmed their
correspondents with bulletins of improved
crop prospects in Missouri, Kentucky and
Tennessee. A full average yield in those
Etates is predicted on the authority of peo
ple in trade of good repute. New York was
the head center of bear pointers, however, ,
but news of a bearish tenor is at a discount
and is not influential. From Baltimore in
formation was received that 68,0 0 barrels
of flour had been shipped from there. This
is equivalent to about 300,000 bushels of
wheat and is said to be the largest amount of
Hour ever exported from any one American
port in a single day. Minneapolis also
reported heavy sales of flour to-day
at an advance of 70c a barrel
above bottom prices ruling thirty days
Ego. The total receipts of wheat at Western
receiving points included in the visible sup
ply statement footed up 155.000 bu, running
from one car at Toledo to 56,000 bu in Min
neapolis, and shipments from all points ag
gregated nearly 400,000 hu. These are facts
that attract attention, and another big de
crease in the visible supply is now certain as
a result of the current week's movement.
Primary markets are firm as a rock. Viewed
as a whole, this was probably the biggest,
broadest market day ever seen since the ad
vance commenced. Believers in $1 wheat
are multiplying, and the $1.25 men are on
the increase. The bull leaders are generally
believed to have sold wheat to-day. but for
an alleged 'loppy" and "strained" market,
prices hold marvelously well. Corn ruled
passably firm to-day. The market
is neglected, and speculative senti-.
ment seems to favor the bear side
Receipts are on the increase, to-morrow's es
timates being 105 cars. The market opened
weak on receipt of this information, but
bobbed up again from 57% cto 58c for July.
Offerings are absorbed easily. Dunn & Co.
and Robert Warren & Co. were the largest
sellers to-day. Provisions were inclined to
weakness today and a small decline in prices
Is noted. At the afternoon session there was
a panicky feeling in wheat, because some
thought that a few large operators had been
selling out under cover. Prices broke %c to
?se. but confidence was soon restored and
there was a rally of %c Corn, oats and pro
visions also sold a shade lower.
THE ROUTINE KErORT.
Chicago. May 17.— Operations on 'change
this morning begun with enormous business
in the wheat pit, and with decided and fairly
active markets in other grains and provis
ions. Wheat was the leader in interest and
was excited and unsettled throughout the
session. Trading was enormous and even
the biggest operators were lost track of at
times. Conditions were little changed. The
legitimate market and weather conditions
counted for little in the pit, but all hinged
on what the big speculators were doiaag.
Every big trader here, if he is an opeaa buyer,
is credited with easing the market by selling
under cover, and if he is an open
seller, he is charged with tak
ing wheat through unknown brokers. The •
situation is particularly Interesting, and the
action of the market was one of big plunges
and quick depressions, while all the time the
turning points Indicated a strong upward
tendency. The big operators sold considera
ble quantities of their holdings on the bulge,
which came shortly after the opening, and
as the session advanced, turned a good share
of their attention to purchases of the more
deferred futures. July opened %c over last
night at 90*"ic, sold at 90% c and rose up to
91% c, back to 90% cup to 91% c, the second
time, and then cased off and closed at 91% c
The corn market was a disappoint
ment to many to-day. The range for
the session was not beyond %c and trailing
was very light. May sold at [email protected], clos
ing at 59c; July, from 57'fec up to 58c, and
back to 57V2C, and closed at 57% c Free
charters of oats, 202,000 bushels helped to
keep oats steady, notwithstanding the trans
actions weae very moderate. July opened at
337fec, sold down to 33% c and closed at
33% c
A weaker feeling prevailed in hog products.
Trading was slow aiad only scalping in lots
within narrow range. Prices were lower.
July pork sold at $14.40014.42% and closed
at $14.30; July lard closed at 4712. and
July short ribs sold at $7.6007.67% and
Closed at $7.62%.

day was. up to 2 o'clock, intensely dull and
almost without feature of any kind, but after
that time was weak and fairly active, finally
closing at material concessions from last
cveniaig's prices. The opening was made at
irregular changes from last night's figures,
and while there was an inclination to weak
ness in early trading, upon selling by traders
it soon recovered its tone aud began to-ad
vance, though the only move-met of import
ance was iii New England, which, after a
loss of %, rapidly regained the loss and
something in addition. The market soon
sank into most intense dullness. Richmond
it West Point, however, again showed weak
ness in the afternoon, and while it was still
at a premium in the loan crowd it became
very evident that some one was selling the
stock, though the source of the movement is
yet a mystery to the street. Very little im
pression was made upon tne rest of the list,
though all the gains of the day were wiped
out with small fractions in addition. Union
Pacific was the strong stock, and
actually advanced slightly when the rest
of the list were declining, and considerable
firmness shown by the Northern Pacific
group, Northern Pacific preferred reported
an increase of 100 per cent for one day,
while rumors tnat Mr. Villard was to be made
the next president of the Oregon Transconti
nental aided in the strength displayed.
There was lao recovery from the depression
in the last hour, and the close was fairly
active and weak at about lowest prices
reached. Almost everything is lower to
night, the few advances being for insignifi
cant fractions only, while Richmond & West

Generally speaking butter is without
change, though dairies are stronger. Receipts
are expected to increase and the price to
decline soon. There is but little poultry
coming in, while the demand is very light,
indeed. Apples are without chaaage. The
quality of berries is decidedly improving,
with a gradual increase in consumption.

Flour The market is in the waiting mood
with millers advancing their figures in con
formity lo the rise in the cost of wheat. The
New York Produce Exchange Reporter says
of the situation there: "The flour market
opened higher and unsettled, the advance in
wheat all over the West and higher limits to
millers caused most receivers to advance
their prices materially. This greatly restricted
business, and our quotations must be re
garded as more or less nomiaaal. Winter
wheat clears and straights are the most active
and strong at the advance. Shipping brands
are higher but quiet. The lowest grades,
those used by tne feed meu, are very scarce
and in request. Winter and spring "patents
are held higher here and to arrive, this
checked business. Spring clears and
straights are fairly active at the advance."
