Chicago, Dec. 12.— As for several days
past wheat for May was a sale at $I.lOVa or
better, and a purchase at $1.09*& or under.
This was for a scalp. Scalping was about all
that was done for the session, and the above
figures were about the outside of the range.
The outside influences, so far as they went,
were a trifle bullish. There was a decrease
on ocean passage. There were lighter re
ceipts and of poor quality in the Northwest,
With Minneapolis put down for 193,000 bu.
Philadelphia cleared 10,000 bu. The Brad
streets figures on flour, which helped the
bears yesterday, were corrected today. Re
ceipts here were 28 cars, wiih only 1 car of
No. 2in the lot, and that on special track..
There was some good buying and good sell
ing by spurts, and May went up and down,
mostly within 1 cent range, with $1,105,8 for
the top and $1.09% for the bottom up to 1
p. m. December was nominal at $1.04.
.January sold at $1.05 .% to open, then at
$1.05. and again at $1.95*4. May sold at
$I.o9*[email protected]: 105'g to $L09%®L10%. Cables
were not very encouraging. The official re
port of the commissioner ot agriculture
gives the English wheat crop at 2,000,000
bushels. The close of the . session . found
wheat pretty firm, and May, after selling up
to $l.l<i ; 4. closed at Sl.lOfr'g, or lV«c over
last night. There was a slight advance in
prices for corn in the pit to-day, which
caused the market to appear strong. The
sentiment in which was helped by the firmer
feeling iv wheat. At the opening there was
a disposition on the part of the shorts to
buy both January and May at 'MV-i and 37V2C,
respectively. The scaluers took advantage
ot what looked like a demand and bid for
the corn. The estimate for Thursday was
but 294 cars, uud only fourteen cars of No. 2
came in with the 344 cars this morning.
These things helped the buying. Oats
were quiet, but steadier for May ana prices
advanced Me. Sales ranged at [email protected]
Outside orders to buy or sell were light and
operations were confined to scalpers. The
near futures were weaker and a shade easier.
Samples dull and [email protected]*?4C lower, owing to
large offerings. Receipts, 190 cars. There
Iras less activity in provisions to-day. The
estimate of only about 20,000 hogs at the
yard, caused prices there to open [email protected]
higher, and provisions started with short
ribs and mess pork 7"& c over the close, and
lard 5c higher. Sales for January before the
call were ST. for ribs. $8.02 for lard, and
$13.50®K!.52 for pork. There was little
weakness shown on the call, which put ribs
SI $7, laid alsS and pork at $13.50. Later
mess pork sold at $13.57' 2 and declined to
513.521.2. The pit was dull to the close, with
lard and ribs 5c higher for the day, and porK
10c over last night.
The leading futures ranged as follows:

$4.8441 for sixty days bill and §4.88 V» for de
mand. The stock market was active by
spells to-day. and except in the dull periods
was strong "most all the way out, and a gen
eral, and, in some instances, a- marked, ad
vance occurred. There was a general bullish
feeling on the street this morning and the
bears, in view of the recent set-backs in Dei
aware & Hudson and Omaha, were inclined
to be shy, and covered freely, especially as
the news of the day was almost entirely
of a favorable nature. The decision of the
inter-state commission in regard to selling
tickets to scalpers was looked upon as a big
bull card, and the buying of the grangers was
quite noticeable throughout the day and they
were stronger than for some time past, be
sides which the foreigners after the early
trading, displayed a disposition to purchase
in different portions of the list which had
considerable influence. There was au im
pression that the dividends upon the Gould ,
stocks would be as before, and reports which
apparently emanated from official sources
were put out to thakeffect, and Inter the offi
cial action accelerated the advance begun in
the early morning. The coal stocks were the
g eat feature of the day. all of them being
more active, and the well known fact that
the business for the past year has been
something extra and the rumors of
the heavy earnings of the leading roads made
the bears somewhat nervous, and covering
was freely indulged in. There was a rumor
that Jersey Central would be treated to a
spurt similar to that of Delaware & Hudson
the other day. The early prices from London
came lower this morning, and this market
opened lower, in sympathy ior most of the
list, though there were a few marked excep- *
tions. The total sales of stocks to-day were

These had early effect, and after the force of
them had beeu spent, the market was quite

Sample wheat was held at about yesterday's
figures and some of the firs t sales were made
at thai range but holders complained about
the lack of inquiry and a largo share of the
grain could not find purchasers at previous
prices. Posted receipts were only 293 cars,
but the tables were well covered with the ac
cumulations of the past few days, and a
good deal of the low tirade stuff was carried
away unsold at the finish. Mixers were
picking -up a little of the off grades, and
down river millers were looking for good
mining wheat. -
THE FLOUR MARKET. 1-
The market is improving in extent of de
mand, not in larger orders particularly, but
in a general' widening of the area wanting
small lots. There are orders for lots of less
than a carload coming in. and these come
from dealers that usually buy from two cars
to ten cars at a time. They have all heard of
the flour glut, and waiting" for the full effect
of it in cheapening ices, and are piecing
out and sorting up until after. the Jan 1 set
tlements are disposed of. ' New England is
beginning to buy more, and some New York
towns are buying moderately. The market
is not active, but it is less stupid by consider
able than two weeks ago.
KXAIiIiEItATED FLOITK STOCKS.
Market Record: There exists in lhe public
mind a serious error relating to stocks of
flour in this country, east of the Rocky,
mountains, as compared with former years.
Instead of there being more flour at the
principal points of accumulation than a year
ago, it is evident there is less. Oct. 1. 1887,
the stock, according to Bradstreets" computa
tion, was .018.256: bbls. The next state
ment was made Jan. 1. and showed 2.036,
--.442 bbls. Oct. 1 this year there were 1,039,
--068 bbls iv stocks, and Dec. 1 there were
1.910.515 bbls in stock, and not 2.491,425
bbls, as stated by Bradstreets.
The following table shows the comparison
of totals Dec. 1 and Jan. 1, arranged in the
order of grouping followed by that publica
tion.

Bradstreets' total 2,491,425
Bradstreets' error . .*. 580.900
The comparisons are made against Jan. 1,
as there was no statement compiled for Dec.
1 a rear ago. It is well understood that flour
stocks do not usually accumulate in Decem
ber : that they did not last year, and that
with the amount of milling capacity shut
down now. and that will probably remain
down till January, there is not the slightest
prospect of an "increase during December
this year. Instead of . flour stocks, at the
chief points of accumulation in this coun
try, being greater than a year ago, they are
less. As Bradstreets' figures are the ones
used to show the increase. Bradstreets' fig
ures are used to show where the error is,
which consists in making the sum of the
foregoing totals tor Dec. 1, 2.491,425 instead
of 1,910.525 that it should be. What was,
perhaps, the blunder of a clerk, has made
the editor of that paper, accepted as author
ity, say: "Stocks of wheat flour are the larg
est noted since these records were begun,'
amounting to 2.491,425 barrels, agaiust
1,761.558 barrels on Nov. 1, a gain of 731,
--000 barrels— per cent."
Instead of that being true, after correcting
some errors in bis additions for Nov. 1, the
increase in stocks from then to Dec. 1, is
from 1.853.806 bble to 1.910.525, or about 3
per cent, not 41 per cent, as be states. And
as compared with Jan. 1, '-since the records
were begun,'' a computation shows that the
average stocks on Jan. 1, each year, from
1885 to this time, is 1.935,090 bbls, against
1,910,525 Dec. 1. this year, or that stocks of
flour are now 24,565 bbls under the aver
age on the date named. The stocks Jan. 1,
1887. were 2.024,695 bbls and Jan. 1, 1838,
2,036.442 bbls, or 125.917 bbls larger a year
ago than now and 111,170 bbls larger than
two years ago.
