Wheat price on the noara oi i raue slumped violently today on selling, based on reports of rain In Kansas ana on a nreaK or ;a at Liverpool The market was weak all day and closed at net declines of l'4ti:ic, compared with yesterday s final figure. Corn, oats and provisions also closed weak. Traders In the wheat pit appeared very mum si sea ana as a consequence the vol time of trade was not so large as on the previous suasion, rne feature of trade was the heavy selling pressure to which the July delivery was subjected and the rel atlve weakness of that month compared with the morn distant options. At tho low point today the July delivery was 3-V.c be low the high price of tho preceding ses sion, while the more deferred options snowca a loss or less than 3c. The mar ket opened extremely weak at losses of o to 2Mt2c, with July at IL154D1.16 and Sep tember at 31.0b'1.07. There was consid erable buying of the deferred futures by northwestern Interests, which tended to check any further decline in those months, but the July delivery was In poor demand and sold off more than lc below the open ing low point, the bottom being reached at 11.14. September held within the opening range throughout the entire day. The mar ket closed weak, with July at 1.14i4j 1.14i and September at ll.Oty.4. Final quo tations .on December were at 11.061(31.06. The corn market was weak nil day be cause of heavy selling pressure, based on a poor shipping demand and on prospects of a liberal increase in the movement dur ing the coming week. Some of the leading longs In the wheat market were the prin cipal sellers of corn. The nearby deliv eries displayed the greatest weakness. At the close prices were e to n'fi U: below yesterday's final fisures, May being at 7-V and July at lifP-yiitlS'aC. Improved wejiiier conditions for Hie new crop prompted liberal selling of September oats, and the slump In wheat and corn caused free profit-taking In the May op tion. The result was a weak market all day. The close was only u trifle abov the low point at net declines of Irnc to c, with Mny at 68'ie and July at Dlc. The weakness of corn led to considerable speculative selling of provisions, particu larly of lard, which resulted In a heavv tone all day. At the close prices were 6fp ' 7c to 12V lower than the previous fin ish. The leading futures ranged as follows: Articles I Open.! High. I Low. Close. Yes'y.

Re ceipts of cattle tills week have been very heavy, showing a gain of about 7,0n0 head over last week and of almost 8,000 head, as compared wtlh the same week a year ago. Considering the extremely large receipts, the market aa a whole has been In sur prisingly good condition. In fact, there has been no point where the cattle trade has been In any more healthy condition. They arrivals have consisted very largely of beef steers, the proportion of that kind of cattle being very much heavier than usual at this season of the year. The quality has also been good, there being a great many very desirable killers among the offerings. The supplies of all other kinds of cattle have been moderate. The market on beef steers began the week with a good, stiff advance, and continued rapidly uphill until Wednesday, when there was a sharp reaction. Since Wednesday the trade has again recovered, so that at the close of the week beef steers are gen erally 16c higher than one week ago. ir. addition to being higher, the trade on most days has been active and In a good healthv condition, entirely satisfactory to the selling Interests. In fact, considering the very heavy receipts, a better market could not be aslted for. As high ns Iri 70 was reached by the best cattle. The ad vance this week carries the market to a point that Is safely 30il0c higher than the low spot two weeks ago. Cows and hlfers. owing to the good de msnd and to the fsct that the supply was quite moderate, showed even more advance than beef steers during the week, being at the close UjiS'-'fic higher than one week ago. As compered with the low time two weeks ago, there lins been an advance of 2640c. Trade on most days was active, early clearances being effected. During the early part of the week Miock ers and feeders were very firm, hut later on, as It b oca me. apparent that light cattle were accumulating In the hands of specu lators, the country being a alow buyer, there was a decidedly weaker trend to values. TJius at the close of the week everything except good heavy feeders can be quoted around 2oc lower than a week ago. It should he understood, however, that prices even Ht that are extremely high as compared to the way fat cattle have been selling. Quotations on cattle: Good to c hole corn fed steers. ;.3tiftf.76; fair to good cornfod kteers, fi.75j.30; common to fair cornfed steers. $6.0(6.76: good to choice cows and heifers, ti.C'tf 5 86 ; fair to good cows and heifers. $4.264i6.00; common to fair cows and heifers. 2.2ffi'4.2f; stock heifers. 3.00 4 25; veal calves. 3.6outi.76: bulls, stags, etc., !3.2o36.L.': good to choice Mockers and feed ers. 4. fu6.76; fair to ood stockers and feeders, I4.U0&4.6D; common to fair stockers and feeders, 3.2!4j4 DO HOGS Hogs sold 10c higher this mornina and the market was aotive at the advance, everything In sight being disposed of at an early 'hour. Tne apparent cause for Hie advance was to be found In the moderate receipts and a very good buying demand. Packers seemed to come to the conclusion that the hogs were worth the money and they went out this morning to secure as many as possible. A good share of all the hogs sold at I6.86ii7.06 and on up as high as 7.26 for the best heavy. A feature of the run yesterday and again today was Die scarcity of heavy bogs, the great big bulk of all the arrivals consisting of light weights. Receipts this week foot up a little over 60.0UO head, as ugainst ta.000 last week and 64,000 a year ago. The market has shown quite a number of changes. Thus the week opened stronger and the market was again higher 011 Tuesday, hoga selling on -that day very nearly loe higher than the close of the previous week. Commencing with Wednesday the market decllire.l 1 apl lly, reaching the low point 011 Frluav, when hogs sold the lowest on an aveiage of any day since April 6. Today s advance leaves the market about 6c higher than it was at the close of last week, taking quality and weight Into considei ation. a decrease of approximately 4,000 under the official count of the week before. Receipts of the last two weeks as compared with the corresponding two weeks a year so show a decrease of approximately so.uti. These figures make an explanation of the booming condition of the market unneccs sa' v. Most of ihe ofl"tins of la'e have been shorn and tor this reason the total ad vance on that class of stuff may be more accurately gauged than the advance on woolen. Still the general upward trend of the market has been as noticeable In one department as In the other and total gains compare favorably. The advance In bot! wooled and shorn for the week is right around 60ti86c. The much talked of bare- spot In receipts Is not yet apparent, but scant receipts In dicate that It Is dangerously near. How much higher tho market will go Is very doubtful. Talent Is divided In Its opinion. One salesman said yesterday: "The sum mit of values has already been reached.

A large diBtribution of speculative holdings of Btotks wns ef fected today with the result of holding in restraint tlio upward trend of pricee. The great volume of sales was made at prices higher than yesterday and represented, therefore, mibetantial profits 011 purchase made at ajiy time since the low level of prices touched In the panic period of 1907, and in the period of excitement depression following. 'fitted Stutea Bteel preferred rose to tho higliet price of the year. The growth of speculative interest in the mar ket for severul days pat has resulted In bringing In increased ojrders to buy slocks from outside sources and thin supplied an advantageous medium for securing profits. The absorptive rower of the market In fact, proved so effective a to furnish en couragement to tho bull leadership In the speculation. The r.rofit taking of the first hour waa followed bv renewed accumulation of stocks In the second hour In the egpei-tation that a riHing market at the close of the week would serve to attract rei.ewed outside 1. living nt the beginning of next, thus furnishing an ipportunity for further mar ketings of holdings at the high prices now prevailing. Realizing was renewed at tne end jf the clay. Tho copper stocks were still favorites in the sieculalion and were subjected to renlizing pales, along with oilier stocks. The movement In the coppers wns conspicuous in foreign markets and broadening demand was sufficient to absorb the profit taking to advantage. Very little fresh news accompanied the activity. Reliance is placed on the supposition that th powerful capltallslic groups are foster ing the rise In prices Induced lo this course by cheap money rotes and by the demand thus excited for new bond issues, which are being brought out constantly to meet financial needs of the great corporations. Reduction in the Idle freight car surplus for the second half of April was a favorable Influence. It waa noticed, however, that the reduction was traceable almost wholly to the increased movement of coal. The small net price changes at the end of the day, in view of the great animation of the innrket is testimony to the skill and perslFtence with which the demand was supplied. The decrease In surplus reserve of tho banks In the computation by aver ages evidently reflected opinions of the week preceding, the. surplus rises nearly $i.f..K, the joint result of cash gain and small loan reduction.
