THE MOBNING OBEGONIAN. TUESDAY, APKIL 15, 1902.
The market situation, as usual on Monday,
presented no features of special Interest. Pro
duce receipts were quite liberal, but prices
-were -well maintained, the only -weakness ap
parent being In butter, which -will be uneasy 1
until It takes another drop. Eggs were quite
nn, and as all of the poultry on the market
-was sold out Saturday the market In that
direction was firm. The high prices for po
tatoes brought out some very liberal offerings,
and the market was easier yesterday, some
of the buyers staying out until matters pre
sent -a. more settled appearance. Onions were
also weaker. There was the 'usual amount
of California produce on the market, and
early vegetables from local gardens were also
more plentiful. No transactions were re
ported In hops, and wool was also quiet, al
though mohair Is active. Ey the end of the
week a considerable portion of the mohair
clip will have been sold, as the recent im
provement" in prices has caused it to move
rauch more freely than last season. The
jnarket for oats Is now very brisk, although
receipts are light and stocks in the country
are by no means large. Groceries were steady
at unchanged prices, the 5-cent decline In
sugar in the East having no effect locally.

Tho local wheat market was dull and un
interesting as usual yesterday. The East took
its customary tumble, which Is always overdue
If it falls to follow two days of strength. The
report that a duty of 3 cents per bushel
would bo levied by England caused eomei
speculation locally as to the effect It might
have on the situation. Inasmuch as it
will hardly cnecks consumption. It Is not
probable that American prices will be af
fected. If a sufficient period is permitted to
elapse before the duty Is effective, the market
will undoubtedly be benefited, as there will
bo a great demand for stock to be rushed in
quickly. With hardly any wheat selling In
the local market, there Is nothing doing In
freights, and the three vessels which com
prise the disengaged fleet In this port are still
lying Idle waiting for something to turn up.
For new crop season, owners arc asking more
money, but are not getting It.

NEW YORK BANK STATEMENT.
NEW TORK, April 14. There was a fever
ish and excited close in today's stock market,
after & Cay of varying sentiment. The early
strength was not maintained. In spite of
wide advances in a few stocks, and the course
was gradually downward until the late deal
ings, when there was a general break all
around. The coalers had risen again after
tho settling tendency, under the stimulus of
extraordinary advaiVes in some of the grang
ers and NorthweiJterns. But the per
ception of realizing under cover of
this strength, and the sensational ad
vance to 123 In Louisville & Nashville un
settled sentiment again and led to the gen
eral unloading In the final dealings. There
were some feverish and spasmodic rallies, but
the market closed feverish and Irregular with
a weak undertone.
Much attention and surmise were given to
the Louisville & Nashville situation and the
disposition to be made of Its control, which
is now without dissent understood to have
escaped its long-time holders. Some hope Is
entertained that a community of Interest
among the Southern . trunk lines will be
worked out as a result of the new control,
which seems to have been acquired without
any large railroad policy In view, but simply
for speculative profits. It is patent that
great financial and railroad Interests are now
striving to readjust the situation from tho
standpoint of railroad policy, which necessi
tates a settlement to tho satisfaction of the
Interest which has secured the control almost
by chance. The action of the stock today
did not Indicate any very definite prospect of
settlement, but rather the profound unsettle
ment and uncertainty of the speculative mind.
The remarkable rise in Northwestern grangers
was without explanation, unless it was the re
sult of pure manipulation to further profit
taking at other points.
The Chicago & Northwestern stocks, St. Paul
& Omaha and the St. Paul stocks were
marked up. In a short period of trading, from
2 to 13 points. St. Paul relapsed as sud
denly to below Saturday and fluctuated at the
last almost as widely as Louisville Itself. The
money market was appreciably easier, as a
result of the stronger condition of the banks
as revealed by Saturday's statement. But the
extent to which outstanding credits are In
volved In the creatrspeculatlve operations go
ing on in the stock market is not entirely
satisfactory to the conservative minds, and
was the subject of much comment and some
Reports of rain In the Winter wheat belt
were productive of some buying of stocks, and
reports were received of a heavy merchandise
movement on Western railroads. In spite of
the shrunken proportions of the grain move
ments. The February statement of Missouri
Pacific did not serve to corroborate this view,
the net earnings of the month declining 5430,
020. The peace rumors from London helped
the early strength in the market, although the
buying from that source seemed to be In the
nature of reinvestment of the proceeds of
Louisville & Nashville stock sold. The Brit
ish budget statement came too late for di
gestion and influence on this market,
The . bond market was unsettled and ir
regular. Total sales, $5,005,000. United States

FOREIGN FINANCIAL NEWS.
London Stocks Strong on Hope of
Pence in Africa. I
NEW YORK. April 14. The Commercial Ad
vertiser's London financial cablegram says:
A moderate amount of activity character
ised the stock market today and shares were
strong all around, on hopes of peace In South
Africa. Balfour admits that overtures are
passing back and forth. Consols touched 03,
and closed at 94. There Is talk that a
new lssuo of from 25.000.000 to 30.000,000
will be announced In tonight's budget.
Americans were more active, but there was
not much local buying. The shares opened
well above parity. New Tork became a gen
eral buyer, but as a result the close was
nominal. Louisville & Nashville was again
the feature. The stocks opened at 1124,
which was nearer parity than since the begin
ning -of the present upward movement. The
price quickly advanced to 124, and in the
street the price bulged to 1204. There is no
definite news about the stock over here, but
tho buying seems to be by Kuhn. Lb & Co.
for Rock Island. Hardly a share Is offered on
this side. Big houses are short, and Job

are bolder, on the arrangements for future'

Panic at Chicago Caused by Shorts
CHICAGO. April 14. Shorts In the corn
pit wcro the cause of tho panicky action In
grains. At the start there was an Inclina
tion to sell becauso of the easy feeling In
wheat. It only took a few spurts of the St.
Louis market, however, to create a strong
demand by the unfortunate early sellers. The
naturally bullish situation In the corn trade,
with continued reports of depletions of stocks
at nil prominent centers, and an increasing
demand, scared the shorts badly.
The rumor that was started in March of a
possible corner was renewed again and a
hot start resulted. Great buying was in
dulged in and prices were higher before the
market was under way. May opened e
higher to c lower, at 61c to CiaSc and
jumped to C3Hc This was an advance of
about 0 cents over the law price on the de
cline of a week or 10 days ago, and of al
most 4 cents since Saturday morning. St.
Louis was buying supposedly to finish the
covering of tho big short lino begun Satur
day. Offerings were not enough to supply
the demand. Everybody In the pit was nerv
ous. Trade was guesswork all around.
After the early excitement there was con
siderable selling by people who thought corn
had all the twlet needed for the present.
Business quieted down and wheat reactd
from Its sympathetic higher prices. Liquida
tion at top prices brought good profits. There
was a good demand for the cash article,
which, together with strong cables, helped In
putting a bullish interpretation on every bit
of news. Traders In all pits were talking of
the remarkable outlook for speculation -and
manipulation In corn. News continues to ar
rive of farmers feeding corn to stock because
of the advanced prices of cattle and hog3.
May corn at Southwestern markets Is lc to
lc over Chicago prices. The country, trad
ers -say, must have Chicago corn, and there
Is little of that. After high prices. May corn
sold off to 61-& but rallied acaln and closed
strong, c up, at 62c
Wheat started out with a sickly aspect on
unresponsive cables and rains In the South
western wheat country- May opened kc to c
lower, at 72H73c, but at once felt the In
fluence of the soaring corn market. In a
very short time covering and an Investment
demand sent May to 73Hc. As Torn began
Its decline after the opening bulge, wheat
eased off. Then a big line was sold for a
leading bull professional and as the "tallers"
filed in to sell the market slumped off be
low Saturday's close. The Southwest sold
here and those markets were lower. Commission-houses
were on both sides of the market,
but principally sold. Liquidation for profits
was very popular. The visible decrease of 1,
800,000 bushels was a little moro than ex
pected, but had no effect. Trado was active.
May closed weak at Us lowest point, c off,
