MONEY AND COMMERCE MONETARY. Weunkbdat Kvtmino, April 80. There was more then the usual activity In the local mouoy market to-day on account of the preparation to pay for grain expected to ho de livered to-morrow on May options. Many of the banks are becoming disgusted with the po. rlodio disturbance of business caused by this demand for the loan of largo amounts of money for ono or two days to enable specula tors to settle up their option .trades at tho beginning of ouch month. Dank ors say they ore willing to loan mouoy for thirty days in reasonable amounts, bub not in tho ex traordinary sums required by tho speculators for only ono or two days. A speculator may have two or throe hundred thousand bushels of wheat, for instance, coming to him In May, and Which ho expects will bo delivered on the Ist. *At the same time ho may have as much wheat or com, or something else to deliver to other parties on tho same kind of options. Ho must pay for tho ono and got pay for the other, and In tho aggregate his receipts and payments of money may amount to several' hundred thou sand dollars, while his own actual capital may not bo over ono-flfth or one-tenth of that sum. Tho grain is simply moved around from ono holder to another in this market, and tho money shifted around from ono bank to another. It is much the same as if tho banks wore to attempt to settle their respective demands against each other without tho old of tho Clearing-House. It causes an immense expansion of bank credits, and requires a groot deal of currency for Just one day at the beginning of each month. It depresses the price of exchange and deranges business generally. The banks claim that they make nothing at all out of it to pay for the trouble, and some of them declare they will not ao it any longer. Several of the applicants for largo sums to-day wore refused at various banks, and It is doubtful whether they wore able to mabo preparations to pay commensurate with the expected largo deliveries of grain and pro visions. It seems probable that as the volume of spooulatlon in the grain and provision mar kets increases, some other plan of settling up those option trades, culminating with the ena' of each month, wiU have to bo adopted. A clearing-house for option trades was sug gested and discussed a year or two ago but tho plan did not seem to bo fully under stood, and no attempt was over made to put tho idea into practice. If tho bankers ore really in earnest and should hereafter refuse to furnish tho < moans of settling tho option trades of tho gram dealers, tho latter would probably adopt some such plan of making their clearings. Aside from tho temporary activity above re ferred to, tho money market seems to ho grow ing easier. Ton days ogo, when tho banks did not find satisfactory employment for all their ’ money here, and while it was extremely strin gent in Now York, tho banks were all disposed to increase their balances in Now York for the sake of the interest they could got from their Now York correspondents. Cut now money has be come easy in Now York ond tho prospect is that the largo movement of grain to tho East in a few days will make a largo amount of exchange and increase their Now York balances more than is desirable. Tho decline in tho price of ex change, therefore, indicates a disposition to hoop a larger proportion of their funds hero. The demand for currency incident to tho set tlements in the grain market caused a depression m tho price of exchange to-day, and some largo amounts wore sold at 800 per SI,OOO discount to day. This, however, was lower than tho general condition of trade would naturally make tho oboul ttU(i tho logitimato ono Tvould probably bo Messrs.

Several country receivers write that grain is pouring in upon them so fast that they are obliged to draw for money to moot It. Our receipts of canal com are kept back by the fooling that tho inspection ia '-too high, and a good deal of grumbling Is hoard hero about it. Tho reason assigned for grading most of the canal receipts as rejected is that they are damp. Wo know not how much ground, there is for the complaint, but, If that Committee of Appeals wore In existence, tho grievance could bo re ferred to them at once. As it is, there is no moans of deciding whether tho complaint bo well founded or not. Tho barley muddle fa about to rocoivo a now light, which moy, possibly bo of considerable ser vice to tho trade. Mr. L. J. Kadlsh, bat) ad dressed a letter to Mr. Harper, the Chief Inspec tor of Grain, which contains the followlup j By your actions, I am loti to believe that Ills your •arnwit determination to remedy tho existing evils concerning tho Inspection of grain ; and, on this basis, I herewith enter n complaint against the Inspector at tho Rock Island Elevator, whose province it Is to In spect grain ont, and I beg of you to Investigate this matter, and secure for mo such redress as lies In your power, J Tbo fa ,°b) in tho case are those: Ontho2fllh (April), Messrs. Rumsoy Bros. & 00. loaded for my account four cars of No. 3 barley in the Rock Island H ?va{or, to bo shipped to For ii Thomas, in Cincin nati. Yeatorday (30tb) 1 went to your offloo and examined, the Inspector’s sample, taken from the cars monlionodr and bearing tho corresponding tag. ’ I found that tho barley delivered as No. 2 was not up to tho standard of No. 2. and could, tinder no pre tence, bo Inspected Into tho house bettor than No 3, as it Is even below No. 3 In the Galena which lam drawing this grade at present. By tho rules of the Board of Trade, No. 2 barley shall bo ** sound ond reasonably clean.” Tho barley I received la not sound, and consequently not No. 3. I am Informed that your Sub-Inspectors have given bonds for tho faithful performance of their duties, am! I request of you to hold tho bond of said luspoc-. tor as security to indemnify mo for the damage I may sustain in consequence of this wrong Inspection. I would further remark that, In my opinion, It Is tho duly of any Warehouse Inspector to inspect grain from elevator Independent of what has boon inspected in | so that If No. 3 barley has boon inspected in as No 3, It docs not follow that It must bo Inspected out as No. S. , Tho loading produce markets wore moderately active to-day, and grain wos generally Arm at the inaldo prices of yesterday, ond provisions wore Btrongor. The news that tho Straits are open and the weakness in freights tended to counter act the downward tendency duo to fine weather and the near approach of delivery-day (Thurs day). There wore few nowfeaturos to note in any of tho markets. In the dry goods market there wore no notice able changes. Trade was quite as active as could reasonably bo expected, and tho market ex hibited a healthy tone. Groceries are mooting with a gradually-increasing demand, though there is not as vet auy particular activity in any department of the market. Prices generally are firmer than at tho close of last week, and in coffees, sugars, and spices there are indications of on early advance. Tho butter market was more liberally supplied, and wore off a little.
