line of tho Union Pacific, where one clip of
300,000 to 400.000 pounds has been obtained
by a Boston house at cent a and other

in Central Utah, on the basis of 24 to
cents for fine clips. Eastern houses are get
ting medium wools on the Utah-Colorado
border et 32 to 155 cents, but these high rates
are not significant, as the wools are so much
lighter than other sections offer.

of wool at 30 to 31 cents. Other business

CHICAGO. May 12. Rains In the South
west finally carried down wheat values to
day, notwithstanding; that for a while the
market showed a material advance. The
uloe was heavy, fee to c net lower, with
July at $1.104 and September at $1.104.
Corn wound up unchanged to a shade higher.
oats off He to Uf"c. and provisions rang
lnc from 2 '4c decline to a rise of 20 cents.
At first, the amount of moisture receiven
by tha drouth sections appeared to be tar
from sufficient to be of much Importance,
The effect, therefore, on wheat traders w
brief, and initial price declines soon ave
way to steadily increasing: upturns. Higher
