to the iata already mentioned in the
Fraternity agreement, a statement of
the minimum amount of salary he is

FAL-L-S OF AFTOX EXDS TRIP
Bark Oweeneo Sails Tic Race With
Sliip Crown of India.
Not the slowest passage of the sea
son is that of the Norwegian bark Falls
of Afton, which arrived out at Queens
town from Portland. Tuesday, after a
run of 137 days, though the best time
was made by the British ship Crown of
India, which got away from the river
January 18, and the British bark Owee-
nee, sailing January 20, as they covered
the distance in 121 days, the former
reaching Queenstown Sunday and the
Oweeneo passed Lizard Tuesday.
While the two Britishers were in port
loading, rivalry developed between
their crews, and the Crown of India's
company gave vent to caustic remarks
because the Oweenee had been referred
to favorably as to her sailing qualities.
The Crown of India went home from
the Columbia in 12) days a few years
ago and the Oweenee covered the course
in 105 days one voyage, while both had
other fast trips to their credit.

Tho allies are asain buylns leather manu

rrade advices from Chicago say of the hide
The conditions ruling in the hide mar
oi mis country nave undergone a com
plete reversal of form and the period of
dullness and weak prices prevailing for two
months has given place to more activity and
strength. Various causes are ascribed for
the ccfmplete change in the tone of the situ
ation, but it is probable that the renewed
buying on the part of belligerent countries
in Kurope of shoes, leather, harness and
other leather equipments Is tho chief reason
why tanners are again purchasing hides
freely. Another Incentive for operations In
the hide market Is that thore has been
readjustment of values, resulting In bring
ing prices down to more reasonable levels
than the inflated rates current early In the
"Chicago packers during the past fort
night have succeeded in disposing of about
250,000 Winter hides at nrices ranrlnr from

most kinds of branded stock, and these
prices average about -C lower on the brand
ed varieties and from 4c to 5c lower on
native steers and cows than the rates ob
tained In December and January.
"Tanners in order to minimize the effect
of this decline In the minds of leather
buyers call attention to the fact that the
reduced quotations are offset by the In
ferior quality of February and March hides,
but the fact remains that late sales of Chi
cago packer native steers and cows of Jan
uary salting at 19c represent an actual re
duction of 4 He from the top rates paid
three months ago, when tanners paid 23 Ho
for these same January take-off hides.
"Besides the large sales In Chicago there
has also been unusual activity at the River
Plate, where approximately 250.000 hides
have been sold at equal reductions from
former top quotations of two or three months
ago. About three-fifths of these Argentine
and Uruguay hides were chiefly purchased
by America and a moderate proportion by
Kurope, but a rather unusual happening in
this market was the sale of about 100,000
hides to Argentine banners who, it is re
ported, have made comparatively large sales
of leather to Europe."

CHICAGO." April 23. Lrgr export buni
nes than has been dona for some time
helped today to boleter the prlcn of wheat.
After much wavering-, the market closed
nervous at off to Mcaip, compared with
last night. Corn finish 4 a shade to 4c
lower, oats c down to 1 -1 If advn n and
provisions varying from 67o decline to
a rise or 24 Uc.
Wheat was stimulated first by reports that
stocks In Great Britain and on passage to
the country had dropped lower than at any
corresponding time In ten yani, and that
no matter now lartre tne united (States crop
mtffht be, the wheat would all be wanted In
Europe. Effects of the fresh European buy
ing; of wheat showed themselves in the lust
half of the session. The seaboard estimated
that the day s sales In aJl positions a k pr re
trated more than 2,000,000 bunhela, includ
ing- purchases of new-crop Winter wheat.
Corn manifested a sajrglns; tendency most
of the time despite the rallying power dls
played by wheat, and in face of bullish
cables and a good cash demand. Increas
ing; offers from the country formed a weight
on the market.
Plentiful moisture eased off oats. Rome
export call developed, but not enough to
bring; enthusiastlo rejtpone.
Shorts covering steadied provisions, what
little selling; pressure there was seemed to
be inspired by lower prices for hotrs.
