roc.ed, and Kales are difficult. No changes are
rcjrorted in the staple grocery list.

CHIC AGO. "Feb. 27. Wheat opened steady and
about unchanged. The arrival of two cargoes
cf v. heat at New York from Portland, Or.,
caused sarac temporary weakness, but other
Items of the early news of an opposite charac
ter gave the price a sharp upward turn. Cable
jcaam from Paris reported that the market
was firm and advancing, and the weather con
tinuing unfavorable. Liverpool wired that the
rnarket there was strong because of a demand
from France for off-coa6t cargoes, and the ef
fect of that here was to raise the price of May
xapldly from K!;c to 54c. the latter being the
ltighest rate that has been reached before for a
month. The first trading was at from 53V0
53Ur- The effect of the French cables were
quickly neutralized when New York dispatches
xrlved stating that the receivers of the bullish
dispatches from France were sellers of" wheat
In New York. There were reports from coutnry
points in Missouri and Illinois enough to check
the bullish enthusiasm, as they described the
Appearance of the wheat plant as it emerged
Srom beneath the snow as being uninjured and
l-.ealthy. A reaction to 54c followed the latter
news. Receipts at Minneapolis and Duluth were
250 cars, against 420 a -week ago, and 260 on

The sterling exchange market today showed a
small volume of business. The tone was fairly
firm at slightly lower rates. The Inquiry was
good, chiefly by foreign houses who have been
sellers of stocks In this market for London ac
count. There has been aa attempt to create
the Impression that there is danger of gold ex
ports, owing to the fact that exchange is ap
proaching the shipping point, but it has borne
no fruit, as there is a firm belief that the bond
syndicate has the market well In hand.

London Financial News.
NEW YORK, Feb. 27. The Evening Post's
London cablegram says: The American loan
has given general satisfaction here. The details
are exactly as cabled yesterday. A few small
men got their applications in full. The price
has raised to 5 per cent premium, applicants
having oversold previously. There is much
talk about the speedy return of the bonds to
America, and also talk of gold shipments re
commencing to America, owing to the firmness
of exchange. These influences cause quiet mar
kets, because of the many absentees. The tone
today was firm, consols rising on government
purchases and foreigners on the buoyancy in
Paris. Americans were irregular, but had a bet
ter tone, except for the flatness of Erie and
Bullion and Exchnnirc.

BOSTON. Feb. 27. The American Wool and

The consumption of wool since the last writ
ing has probably equaled the average since Jan
uary 1. but the wool market has been on the
whole lower than In any week of January. The
market is fairly steady. Foreign advices arc
somewhat more assuring, and doubtless the ef
fect of a slight Improvement abroad will be felt
here. The sales of the week amount to 1,621,500
pounds domestic and 453,000 pounds? foreign,
making a total of 2,077,000 pounds, against
a total of 2,830,500 pounds for the pre
vious week, and a total of 3,397.000 pounds for
the corresponding week last year. The sales
since January 1. 1S95. amount to 25,3S5,300
