MINNEAPOLIS, May 2S.—Wheat wa3
vt-ry steady iliis morning and showed
pod tone all through. July started at
<2%C and .i.i.i up, selling at 72%©72iric.
Chicago said there had been considerable
Belling' of S.^tomber on the good crop
outlook, and this morning boom disposi
lln. was shown, to buy in, through fear
"i the dry "'^ther in the Northwest.
On the surfan< it might appear that the
v.neat market in general is neglected,
and from the fact that most active op
tion has Itci >i varying scarcely at all
irom day to day. it might be supposed
that there is a lack of speculative Inter
<.«t in wheat. This Is hardly a correct
view. There Is no decrease in specula
tivi■ lpt.-rist. but rather a pronounced
tendency at this time to hold off and
wait, nit.- trade Is confronted with tho
unquestioned sood all around crop pros
pects, and some early estimators have
ventured ro assert that with present con
ditions mainfAtiHTi to harvest, BGO.CCOOOO
l)ii will 1»<; ih<- grand total, which would
I>ut all previ >ua yields to the blush. This
Is certainly- depressing enough, but it Is
after all prospective. It Is natural and
'!""'■ to ho expected l!iat there should be
hcpltatton at this time while the crop
question In the Northwest is coming into
"■■'"' as n factor. This year the hesitat
j«K tendency is perhaps more marked
than ever. Reasons for the firmness

METALS—New York, May 28.—Upon
the resumption of business in the London
metal market today, after a three days'
holiday, traders found that the boom
which was in progress when that market
closed on last Friday had completely dis-
peared, at least for the time being.
Liquidation was the order of the day,
and beforo the decline was arrested a
loss of £2 103 was the result, with the
linal phases of tiie nuuket weak and
spot quoted at £12$ and futures £126 i"s
Cd. A good business was done at the
lower level of values. Here, however,
aside from a sympathetic decline of about
35 points, nothing in the way of impoitant
lopments were noted, ruling dull and
easy all day, and finally closed easy with
spot quoted at $27.90>ff28. Copper in Lon
don declined 5s to £r,i) is 3d for spot, and
869 12s Gd for futures, owing to a dull
trade at that point. The local market
for that metal also experienced an unin
teresting session, demand being absent
and prices ruled more or less nominal
on the basis of 17c for Lake Superior and
Hi%c for casting and electrolytic. The
steadiness of pig lead, however was
chiefly the result of the strength in Lon
don price there advancing 2s 6d, closing
at £12 Ss 9d. Tho close here was steady
at $4.37-<, for lots of 50 tons or over. Spel
ter ruled dull here at $3.95@4. In Lon
don, however, a loss of 5s was scored
closing at £17 15s. Domestic Iron mar

were not quotably lower. Glasgow war

NEW YORK, May 28.-^Fhere was some
show of strength and'activity today In
Union Pacific, and In Lackawanna, which
had considerable sympathetic effect In
the railroad list. Tnere was some im
portant strength shown by a number of
minor railroads, and finally .there was a
heterogeneous assortment of minor indus
trial stocks which advanced on the in
fluence of individual causes in no way
disclosed. There was besides some nat
ural recovery from declines of yesterday
under the see-saw operations of the pro
fessional group of traders, who. contin
ued largely in control of the market.
The movement, in Lackawanna,. coming
on top of its previous advance of late,
carried it up today as high as 244. The
fluctuations were rapid and wide and
the volume of dealings r was comparative
ly small, so small. In fact, as u> pre
clude the supposition of .buying f£r con
trol in the open market. Tlie crxplana
tion generally agreed upon was that ne
gotiations were on foot to secure largo
holdings at private agreement and that
the bidding up of that 1 stock represents
efforts to put the prices up to prohibi
tive figures on the part of insiders who
oppose a change of control. That policy
was successfully pursued some time
since in the case of Delaware & Hud
son, and that stock showed some sym
pathy today with the Lackawanna
movement. The coalers otherwise were
rather quiet, Ontario being held in check
by the weak statement of Reading's net
earnings in April. The strength of the
VVabash, Missouri Pacific and the South
westerns generally was related to the
Lackawanna movement, as the supposed
efforts to control the latter are in the
interest of that group. There was some
large buying both of Union Pacific and
Southern Pacific, accompanied by ru
mors that further large holdings of
Southern Pacific had } been secured and
would be applied as , collateral for the
Union Pacific convertible bond issue in
addition to securities formerly held. Tha
strength of Atchison, * which sold ex
dividfnd, was attributed to the April
showing of net earnings. The Tobacco
stocks fell somewhat Into'the background
in the latter part of the day, but there
was active and continued" advance in tho
morning, with a persistfinpe of recent ru
mors regarding the pr6p\erties. The ad
vance in the lowa Central and Minne
apolis & St. Louis stocks was attributed
to working out of a project, l>y the'llli
nois Central to enter-the Chicago-St.
Paul field. Chicago, Indianapolis & Louis
ville and Dcs Moines and Fort Dotlge
showed conspicuous gtfejVgth, and there
was also strength in rthe' American Car
and Foundry stocks,., Chicago Union
Traction. Brooklyn Transit. International
Power, Standard Ropev-&--Twine > Amalga
mated Copper, General. and Con
solidated Gas. The formal announcement
that the bank houses representing the
contest for control of the Northern Pa
cific had given orders to relieve any of
the London shorts who are, honestly un
able to make ,delivery by paying 153 for
their contracts attracted attention. The
wording of the announcement was ac
cepted as Indicating the continued eager
ness to spare actual deliveries of this
stock. The plans of the Illinois Central to
advance further in the,granger field and
a purchase of a large interest in . the
Ohio soft coal field, reported to be fo*
the Gould interests,, were minor incidents
wnich were thought to ■ have possible
significance on the question of an agree
ment between the two- contending inter
ests. The engagement of $1,500,000 gold
for export wajj no.t kno^n until
close. Wabash debfiituresr and Stand
ard Rope 6s were strone.- and -active. Tho
railroad bond market glheralfy was dull
and irregular. Total v sales, par vain*
$3,780,000. United States refunding 2s ad
