CHICAGO, April 26 Wheat experienced a normal reaction irom yesterday's bad lump and with numrroui bullish factors behind lent lta strength to other grains. Trade wai not heavy, but July wheat closed '.: higher, July corn o higher and July oris '.'S'tc higher, rrovlsions gained Ktyc to 17'c-. . Lettclemy of moisture In Kansas and al most freexins temperatures In many parts of the wheat belt was enough to mart wheat upward at a good pace at the open ing of trade. To augment the strength ta bles were firmer than had been expected and receipts both primary and northwest ern were small. Inasmuch as the shortage 'in receipts has been apparent for aome time at:d comparisons have been made against a short-crop year, the beam be came discouraged again and shorts cov ered freely. Excepting rains, every argu ment waa In favor ot the bulls. Traders were of the opinion that It takes some thing more than a rain or two to make a barvest. After the Initial upward Impulse trade waa quiet for a time prices fluctu ated weakly. Concerning Kansas llrad treet'a had a special report saying a three-fourtha yield at the best and ) per cent probable waa to be expected. Weather forecasts had a bad effect. Frosts were predicted In many of the western slates and In Just the places vtiere warmth Is most necessary. Then rcame the report of seaboard clearances of 16,n00 bushels, exceptionally large and of a fair outlook for export business with France. Prices worked up, trade became more active and the greater part of yes terday'a loss waa regained. July opened AiC to higher at TorctlW to 75Vir76. advanced to 76c and closed Itrm, Tc up at 74i764e. Local receipts were M cars. Bone of contract grade, making a total for the three points of 18 cars, against 143 last week and 349 a year ago. Aus tralian shipments were only 152.000 bushels, against 676.000 bushels last year. Primary receipt! were 2l&,mxi bushels, compared to 445,0ii0 bushela last year. Brokers on corn reported the lightest trade In that pit for Saturday In many Weeks. One explanation waa the bad wire ajervlre on account of the storms, which almost shut off outside trade. Another cat.se waa the hard Jolt speculators re ceived yesterday and which they had hardly gotten over today. W hnt argument there waa favored the bulls. Wheat strength and firm cablea aided In an early upturn, but prices were very narrow most f the session. Speculative offerings were very light and consequently there was lit tle selling pressure. The cash demand was (ood and southwest was very bullish, 1st. outs reported good cash sales and more desired than could be obtained. In gen eral corn waa without feature, save lta strength. July sold between W.TiWc and closed firm, ,c up at 6.ic. Receipts were 4 cars. After a firm opening In oats In Sympathy with the strength In the other pits there was a momentary selling press ure dun to the recent heavy rains and their effects on the aown oata. When thi pressure waa removed there was some re ponae to light demand and prices ad vanced. July (new standard sold between 87Hl(87Se and 37c and closed firm, fcCa'ic UP at 3"Hti17Hc. Receipts were 13 cars. Trade In provisions was largely local be cause of wire service. At the start the grain Improvement and a steady hog mar ket reduced buying, which (even as hog prlcea weakened) continued to Improve. There waa a momentary disposition to sell on the hog situation, but a very good packers' support developed a strong mar ket. Pork waa In best demand, but lard was also wanted. Trade In general waa dull. July pork closed UVjC higher at 517.06; July lard 12Vc up at 110.07V and uly ribs 12Vic higher at 19.47W.

Stork Market Quiet, bat Sharp Ad- a la ladaatrlala. NEW YORK. April 2S Today's stock market was rather quiet and gave very little evidence of the activity of the large speculative forces which have kept up the animation of the market during the week. New York was the only sympathetic influ ence on the stocks of subdlary or allied companies. The 12 point rise In New York, New Haven & Hartford was sup posed to have aome connection with the strength of the two principal trunk line stocks. T herp were aharn advances In a number oi inausinea ana specialties wnicn nan no apparent connection and were not ex plained bv any news develnnment.

Yesterday a support tnB United States steel stocks waa lad rrled to be- pport for s lackins: and those atocks were heavy throughout. The grangera seemed somewhat affected by the firmer tone of the grain markets. i nere was no sequel to tne late spurt in Southern railway and that stock nagged until the close. The closing generally waa active and easy. The session of the committee having In hand the attempted settlement 'of the an thracite miners demands was a repressive influence on speculation, but the tone of the market seemed chiefly due to the dis position of operators to take a whole hol iday Instead of a half day after the con siderable activity and excitement of the week. Speculative and convertible bonds have been very active, moving In sympathy with stocks. United States 2s advanced 4 per cent over the closing call of last week.

The table of receipts above will show that for the week tha supply Is a trifle In excess of last week and of same week of last year. The mar ket huta been rather uneven and while there la no great change for the week, prices fluctuated more or less from day to day. Beef steers made up tne bulk ot the offer ings all the week. The quality was the best that haa been aeen here this yenr. Tho first part ot the week trading waa quite active and the tendency of prices waa upward, dui tne iat,t nan tne market waa slow and prices broke. Aa compared with the close of last week choice cattle are probably not over 54jloc lower, but the medium grades ana unaesiraDio came or ait klnda are safely 104j lc lower, and In aome cases the decline Is, perhaps, even mora than that. The choice export cattle and the lightweight cattle ot good flesh and quality continue to sell to the best ad vantage. As high aa $7 haa been paid thla week for cattle weighing 1,629 pounua. Prime steers may be quoted from $6.50 to $7.00. Fair to good from $6.00 to $6.60, and the commoner gradea from $6.00 down. The cow market waa also In good shape the first of the week, but toward the close the tendency on the part of packers waa to pound the market. The very best grades, such as sell from $5.60 to $6.00, are prob ably not much of any lower, but there are very few of that class of cows and heifers being offered. The general run of cattle are probably 10i&15c lower for the week, and common stuff In aome cases sold worse than that. On Friday In particular unde sirable grades were very hard to move. The bulk of the cows are selling; from $3.60 to $5.00. The best grades of bulls are right around steady for the week, but others are a little lower, 'ins same is true ot amen, luuih veal calves will still bring $7.00, but any thing that Is a little lacking in quality Is lower for the week. , t Tka ainv.r and feeder trade has not been particularly good this week.
