the ROUTINE RErORT.
Chicago. June 23.— Wheat showed little
sign of taking un upward turn to-day, and
vet prices did not go down as freely as on
previous days. There was a great deal of
nervousness "in the pit and the price of July
hung around 79c. The range was 78%®
79% c With the indicator at 79c twenty
minutes before the close, everybody expected
either a raid or a rally just at the close.
Wheat closed fairly firm at about last night s
prices for the " day and week, as
follows: June, 79c; July, 79% c; August,
29% c; September, 70. December, 82%fec
In "the corn market there was nothing of
interest. July opened %©__ higher, clos
Ing at 30% c. In the provision market it was
moderately active and stronger, closing sales
being at 2%c advance on pork and 5c on
short ribs and lard. Shorts who have been
selling freely for several days, changed their
course and began covering. There was not
much stuff offered, and prices were easily
advanced. July pork was bid up 15c, but
reacted 7%c. aud closed at $13.02. July

Sterling exchange dull but steady at 4.87
for sixty d:iybills,nnd $4.88 -for demand.The
stock market to-day was more stagnant and
the recorded transactions less than any Sat
urday for weeks. The dealings presented al
most no feature of interest beyond the sell
ing down of Lake Shore on the prospective
cut in rates and the difficulties opcasa up by
such action and the depression of New
England by the traders who have again taken
hold of the stock. The market was intensely
dull even at the opening and first prices were
generally unchanged from last evening's
final figures, but the temper of the room was
somewhat mixed with the professionals in
clined to .be bearish as usual, and some slight
buying by commission houses. Prices moved
up small fractions with St. Paul and Read
ing which were the only stocks showing any
animation whatever in the lead, though the
improvement was confined to fractions less
than % per cent. After 11 o'clock the tone
of the market under the selling in Lake
Shore and New England became weaker and
prices moved off in sympathy with the deal
ings in those stocks. "No other feature was
developed and the market finally closed very
dull and steady at irregular changes from the
opening prices. Railroad bonds were equally
dull with stocks, and the entire two hours'
business amounted to only $330,00 J. Alton

Wheat opened weak and lower in the spec
ulative markets. Trading was very dull, the
attention of dealers being absorbed by poli
tics, and prices sagged another fraction dur
ing the short day. The annual picnic of the
millers closed down local mills, and put an
effectual embargo on trading in milling
wheat. But a few straggling orders came in
from other points, and there was scarcely
enough wheat sold to establish prices. Re
ceipts were 220 cars, with 31 shipped out.
