MONEY AND COMMERCE. MONETARY. ISatuiidat Evening, May 3. Too principal feature in tho local money mar ket this wook Is tbo tarn in exchange In favor of Chicago and against Now York, thus showing (hat tho flow of capital to Now York has ceased, and that currency will move Westward instead of Eastward as It did during tbo wholo of April. As yet this change has had no olloot upon tho money market, hut it may reasonably bo expected to mako an oaslor condition hero during tho current month. Tho demand from tho country for currency is also increasing, and this indicates tho probability of larger receipts of grain, Tho supply of money In the open market is good, and prime commercial paper, and also satisfactory real estate paper, both find a ready market at from 10 to 12 percent. Exchange was sold between bonks to-day at par, and also at GOo per SI,OOO dis count. There is considerable activity in local clocks, as will bo soon by tho list of sales below.

Lack, k Wcstoru.lOi V REAL ESTATE. Probably throe-fourths of the tool estate transactions at present—or, for that matter, at any time—ar o purchases of ohoop lots in tho outskirts of tho oily, just at tho outer edge of tho limits of compactly-built districts, at prices ranging from SBOO to 81,200 per lot. Tho groat majority of thoso purchases aro for actual occu pancy, aud each one indicates the establishment of a homo of somo permanent citizen. Tho greatest activity, both in buying lota of this class aud in building houses costing from SI,OOO to SO,OOO on them, is probably in tho district west of Milwaukee avenue, north of Indiana street, and ns far north as North nvouuo. Another district where tho activity in buying and improving this class of property is nearly, if not quilo, equal, is that west or lloubon street and south of Twen ty-second street, nearly os far west as tho now city limits. There is also groat activity in a dis trict Just oast of Central Park, about a mile square,—from Western avonuo toKedzlo ovouuo, f., \ rom ntre °t to Harrison street. In this district, howovor, prices aro much higher, ranging from SOO to SIOO per front foot, aud property is being improved with a bettor class of houses. Those throe districts are Included in a bolt of territory something over a mile wide and about four miles long, that lies next east of tho chain of West Sido parks. There is nothing spoo idatlvoin connootion with tho sales and Improve ments of property in those quarters. Tho activity is the legitimate ctfoct of tho expansion of tho tho city aud tho settlement there of a resident population that are rapidly Ailing up the space between tho proaont limits of solidly-built Blroot linos and Ibo West Bldo parka.

I ' ON THE NOUTI! AIDE. Thorn is n district north of about Bolden nro mio and west of North Clark street where prices and improvements similar to those in the first of the t above-mentioned West Side districts pre vail ; but the activity of sales and building is not so groat, owing to tho fact that there is no con venient moans of transit from the centre of tho city to tho most desirable parts of tho cheap residence property in that direction. In fact, this is the difficulty with tho whole of tho North Bide suburbs, ond tho main reason that they do not improve more, is, first, that nouo of tho horao-cara of that division oomo down into tho central business quarter; second, that nouo of tho street railway linos on that sldo roach tho now residence districts where people can buy ground at $lO and SGO por Trent foot, and whore salaried and professional men would bo willing to mako permanent homos. Every property-owner on tho North Sido has a largo interest at stake in securing tho transit of all tho North Sido horao*oars across tho river to Ihmdolph street. When this is accomplished tho wholoNorth Sido will experience an increase of population, and improvements will rocoivo a now impulse.

Material progress has been made in the devel opment of property on the lino of improvement to Humboldt Park, and the pavement of Mil waukee avenue ie being rapidly pushed forward to Us intersection with North avenue, to which point the street-cars will bo running as soon as the pavement is completed. North avenue has been cindered from Milwaukee avenue west to the west lino of Humboldt Park/ making a continuous and good drive, all the year round, from Lincoln Park in the North Division to Humboldt Park in the West Division. A great many handsome villas mid cottages are now in process of construc tion, and others aro already completed, along North avenue between Milwaukee avenue and Humboldt Park and Boulevard. The Chicago & Paoiilo Railroad Company have built a fine depot, called “Humboldt Station,” on Bloomington street and California avenuo. California avenue is tho oast lino of Humboldt Park, end runs south along tho oast line of Douglas-Park to tho South Branch. Tho Bride well grounds join tho avenue immediately on tho west, which makes this avenue one of tho longest in tho city. la ° (3a antl building lota of tho Humboldt Park Residence Association are in Hansbrough & Hobs’ Subdivision, extending from North avenuo to Armitago road, and from California avenuo to Humboldt Boulevard, ou both sides of tho railroad station. A number of plana for beautiful villas and cottages are being prepared and tho houses will bo built this season. They will bo supplied with artesian well water, amt, being situated only three and a half miles from tho Court-House, and conveniently located both to steam, rail, and street cars, this will bo a favorite suburb of Chicago. Tho Humboldt Park Residence Association paid SI,OOO per aero for these lands last October. It is safe to say tho enhancement of tho property is already over 23 >or cent, and it will probably double in a short time. 170 105 125 140 285 Tho Humboldt Boulevard, 250 feet wide, runs along the subdivision on tho west lino, and is now being improved by private contract, by tho owners. The property lies just outside of tho city limits, on the north. Tho contract for tho improvement of tho boulevard includes tho planting of four rows of trees of six iuchos in diameter, about thirty foot apart, and tbo sodding of tho beds adjoining tho central drive, in tho width on each sido of forty-six feet. It is also ; iropoeod to improve tho drive with macadam for tho first one-half mile north of tho park. Tho Park Commissioners intend to finish this spring the work on tbo eastern portion of tho mrk, commenced last summer. A largo grotto .ma boon designed, and will also bo constructed. This, in addition to tbo beautiful “ Kamblo ” laid out, will make that part of tbo Humboldt Pork one of tbo most attractive spots on tho West Sido. nines in tbo neighborhood of tho parkhavo advanced very materially sinco last summer. From S6O to $75 por foot is obtoinod for choice locations on park fronts, wbilo tho princl- Eol avenues loading thereto—Chicago avenue ivisiou street, and North avenue—aro hold at from $lO to SSO per foot. Choice residence property In tho neighborhood can ho had for from S2O to S3O por foot, and fronts on tho boulevard are hold at from $lO to SSO por foot. e It will bo Boon that these prices are compara tively cheap.—offering equal advantages in situa tion,—and there can bo no doubt that they must very materially advance this summer. One great obstacle in the general advance of property north of Chicago avenue was in tho fact of tho entire quarter section situated between Chicago avenue and Division street, Robey street and Western avenue, called the Suffron Subdivision was, until lately withhold from tho market by the heirs of the Suffron Estate. They have, however, now con cluded to dispose of it. ON TIIE Bourn SIDE. Olio quarter whore there is tho groatofit ac tivity m sales and improvements of property worth from SSO to §7O njr front foot seems to bo m Egandulo. Probably not less than 2,000 feet of street frontage have been sold there within the past two or throe months, to parties who will improve it this summer, iho greater portion of this frontage will, of course, bo merely improved with shrubbery and made tho ornamental «urrourt|liug of handsome residences, but it will bo occupied, and probably never bo put in tho market for sale again. Tho property on tho South Sido that is most directly in the lino of the progress of good residences is probably that on THE AVENUES,” wiihaah, Michigan, Indiana, and Prairie, south of the city limits, Tho property on those, how ever, has passed into tho hands of capitalists, mio hold it m largo blocks, and seem careless about Bolling at all-. Their indifference op erates aa an obataclo to improvements, which are being turned off eastward, and ‘,J' ca , u * a that, whilo there ia much activity in neighboring quarters there ia nono at all on those lino atroots. The first Indication wo have noticed of adoairo to “wfikonp" and do something to improve tho appearance of their property is tho movomomonl to plant a double row of r TREES ON WAIUBTI AVENUE. from Thirty-ninth to Sixty-third street, this spring. It in proposed to plant about 000 trees or not less than 0 inches in diomotor. and from 25 to 00 foot in height. The majority of tho proper ty-owners have agreed to bear their share of tho expense, and those who have not already done d° 5“ OU J? ftfc onco to offlco of Mr. B. E. Gross—who has undertaken to Be en™ co-operation—ami give their assent. Hut, by far. tho most notable instance of tree-planting that . has been done about Chicago yet—not ©scenting all that has boon done in tho parks—is‘the one on Ash land avenue which does so much credit to tho good taste and public spirit of Sir. SarnJ. Walker, whose good work in this respect will live after him,— a loafymonumont that will cause as many people to think as kindly of him as if ho had built a church or endowed a college. CAPITALISTS COMING TO CHICAGO. wo loam of not loss than four or Jlvo capital lyß* bankers, railroad*nion, and retired nior clmnts, who have accumulated fortnnos during tholr residence of many years in tho scooudary cities of this and adjoining States, and who are • now moving to Chicago to mako permanent homos for tho rest of their ; lives. Two or three have bought residences within tho past two months, and oth ers contemplate buying and building. Ono of those who propose to do tho latter is W. ir. Mitchell, of Alton, who will build a $!i0,000 resi dence on Calumot avonno, just south of Twenty second street, this summer.

So far as wo can ascertain, tbo In spectors aro now working closer to tbo rules than over before, under State inspection, and that is what is wanted. If tbo rules aro bad in aomo places they can bo amended bye audbyo; and tboro aro two or three points in which they need to bo changed. But wo do not want a sot of rules that can bo stretched to grado higher tbo grain that comes from com peting points than that which comes from else where. Even if it bo true, as alleged, that that sort of inspection is practised in Milwaukee and Toledo, it is not wanted hero. What is required is a uniform inspection, so that people who want ‘ojuy grain can always know just what they will have served out to them on a given grade. Ihe demand for such grain would establish n discrimination in its favor, as compared with other markets, that ought to satisfy tbo moat chronic grumbler in existence. Tbo ways of sorao of our lumber brokers aro. to use a Topseyism, decidedly “curis.” Not content with reporting their own sales at 500 or SI.OO above the truth, they scan tho public record for tho report of other dealers, and if they are not satisfactory, will carry off tho book, so that none of tho reporters con see it. Are these some of the tricks which weroso exten sively complained of a year or more ago, by the journals published in the lumber regions? or are they only samples of ways that are dark and tricks that wore so vain that all honest men avoid them? THE MABKETS. Tho loading produco markets wore quiet to day, though thoro was considerable bustle in flomo departments, and wore much steadier, tho lluctuations in prices being small. Tho weather was finer, but the people have learned to distrust tho specious promises convoyed in a glimpse of sunshine. The straits are open, but there is lit tle available freight-room, and shippers are not anxious to take oven that; so that there was not much disposition to trade extensively either way. Tho drygoods trade was moderately active, and prices were more uniform and steadier. Groceries were in fair request at unchanged prices, though in coffees, sugar, spices, and some other articles, there are indications of an advance. There wore no now features worthy of special mention in connection with the but ter market. Low grades are unqualifiedly weak, and there is no particular firmness in tho better qualities, but so long as tho receipts of tho lat ter only about equal current requirements, os m the case at present, no material depre ciation m values need bo looked for Bagging, remains quiet and unchanged, Stork being holdat37o,; Ludlow at 350; Lew iston at 3%0. and American at 82Wo. Little or nothing was doing in tho sheep market, and prices are purely nominal. No change was noted PfJ 008 of 00al * * ' IhQ driod fruit trade was slightly more active, without appreciable change m values. Fish wore iu good request, and if wo except whitofish, which are working a little easier, former quotations aro firmly sustained. Hides wore quiet and steady, at lOWfo for heavy green cured aud at for light do. Prices of leather, pig iron, tobacco, and wood wore un changed. A fairly active business was transacted in lum ber to-day. Yard prices for tho lower grades aro weak and unsettled, owing to a similar condition of things iu tho wholesale market. Tho receipts by lake wore light this morning, bo that the offerings consisted mainly of cargoes left over from Iriday. Building materials wore in moder ate request at previous prices, Metals, tinners’ stock, and iron mot with only a fair inquiry, and were without quotable change. Naval states woro active and firm. There was no particular change in the wool market. Western manufacturers aro purchasing email quantities for immediate con sumption, but otherwise the market is quiet and unchanged. Excepting millet and Hungarian, which woro in request and firm, trading in bogus was quiet, prices ruling about tho same as Fri day.

Tho market was a very steady one, however, tho changes in prico being mrdb slowly. Now York was inactive, and there were few, if any, country orders, either to buy or to sell, so tho market was loft entirely to local in fluences. These were of the bearish order. Sev eral heavy blocks woro placed on tho market by order of the cliques who congregate in business oluces, aud work on tho pool plan through bro kors. It was alleged that those sales woro made for tho purpose of breaking down prices, but that waa not necessarily tho case. It is well known that several of our heaviest op erators have been gradually creeping out from under it for several days past, and those were hut following suit. There are now but few of tho loading operators who are apparently on tho long side; though “you can’t most always toll,” ns they are like tho waterman referred to by Bunyon, who “ looked ono way aud rowed another.” Still there woro enough on tho short side to prevent much of a drop to-dav, though tho general fooling was heavy. The ship pers took hold of cash whoat, but rather sparing ly. Seller Juno opened at 81.26#, declined to advanced #c, and receded to 81.25%, closing at 81.25%. Sollor Slay, or regular No. 2 spring sold at 8L23#@1.24, closing nominal at 81.23%, with strictly fresh receipts about 81.24. Sollor July was uominal.

Total, 91,400 bu. Com waa voiy quiet, and very steady, all through tho regular session, tho average prices being about #0 lower than ou Friday, and #0 below the closing of that afternoon. U-’hero was a fair quantity of com on tho market, both of cash lota and options, and littlo demand: but holders are not anxious enough to soli to put down prices. Deuce thoro was a stand off, with #0 difference botwoou buyers aud sellers most of tho time. Advices from other points woro not important, though Now York waa onsior. Our receipts aro now fair 5 but a largo propor tion goes rejected: 51 cars of tho 141 inspected this morning, with all that arriving by canal, was passed mto that grade, showing that tho Inspectors aro not exclusively severe on

canal com. Thoro is no doubt that a largo proportion of tho winter shelled com is damp, aud so long as tho rules require that damp com shall bo graded asrejocteu, tho In spectors have no right to pass it otherwise. This diminishes tho offerings of No. 2, and tends to keep tho market firm on tho speculative grade. Seller Juno was tho principal deal tho option opened at 40%0. declined to 40#o, ruled steady at 40#@40%0, from 11 to 1 o’clock, and closed easier at 40#c.

An attempt was made early to make 750 tho uomiual rate for “regu lar " No. 2, but it was afterwards ascertained that that price was hid by a party who wanted to sell, and timed his hid sd that no ono was around who would bo likely to soil. Cash sales were re ported of 800 hu No. 2 (North Side) at 82o: 400 hu do (B. I.) at 720; 1,200 hu rejected at 400. Total, 2,400 bu. JUIU.EV DOcioniNa. To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune} The (shaking of tho barley bag seems to caufio 6omo Btlr among tho mixers, doctors, and friends of tho profession in general, but they aro bark ing at tho wrong Tree, and, as I have done tho shaking. I will try to prevent misunderstanding and misconstruction. Tho odvocatoa of “ regu lar barley ” soy that very llttlo, if any, sulphured barloy wont into elevators, and they aro trying to imprest! tho idea, as if tho objections woro based principally on sulphured barloy. This is not bo. Thoro was very littlo said in tho barloy crowd about sulphured barloy being inspected us No. 2, and it is tho general impression that In spectors would not knowingly inspect tho sul phured stuff as No. 2, but tho doctoring business was carried on very largely, and with groat suc cess, by some prominent linns in and outsido Chicago, and, as it became detected In the East ern markets, maltsters and brewers refused to buy Chicago barloy. Tho proas in Now York Stato stigmatized our barley as a fraud, and prices of Chicago No. 2, which, at tho opening of the season, were above Canada product, receded, on account of the bad roputo of our barley, about Bflo per bushel below Canada. Tho com plaint against regular No. 2 barloy, or, in other words, ogainst Hock Island Elevator, was baaed mainly on tho inspection, which admitted No. 3 ns No. 2, and it is generally known that No. 3 barloy from other houses, after being run through a fanning mill, wont in tho Hock Island as No. 2. I will give a few figures for illustra tion, and can furnish facts enough to convince oven tho scion of tho celestial shoot of Chicago. On the 20th of April, 1873. tho Hock Ii land Elevator containo'd 38,000 bu No. 2 barloy: 0,000 bit No. 3; rejected, none; while tho elevators of G. Armour A Co. contained only 13,000 bu No. 2 barloy; 0,000 bu No. 3; 10,000 bu rojoulcd; while the shipments of No. 2 woro by far tho largest from lluck Island, and comparatively loss of No. 8 than in any other houses. It Is also a fact that tho section tributary to tho Hock Island Hailroad furnished the poorest barley, and 1873, the question arlaoa, What has become of all the rejected barlov which thin road brought to Chi cago ? The charanlona of the mixed ring also protond.to know that regular barley is doproci | ated by shorts, who want to buy fn low, while they well know that the complaint comes oxclu slvdy from the opposite aide,—from parties who suffered keenly endlong from the malpractice, and whoso patience have boon mixed and sul phured away at last. So much good has boon accomplished already that tho regular No. 2 in spected out this week was far hotter than Us predecessor, and, If wo can carry tho point that tho Insnootiou out shall bo independent of tho -inspection in. wo will root out the evil in no time ? and, if tho Inflection out will ho carried on with Justice and according to law, tho prefer ence for other houses will cease, as if by maglo. Tlioro lo very good No. 2 barley in tho Bock Island, and shippers should Insist on receiving this, ami I no other. Homo elevators might bo short of No. 2 I barley at the end,—but who caroa ? L. J. K.

Tho receipts of sbeep show fac ing off of 13,202 during the four months- CATTLE—In this department of trade tbo past week baa been chiefly remarkable for the unparalleled heavy receipts, and tho extreme lethargy that has characterized trade from the opening of the market on Monday to tho close. Tho depreciation in values, though not as groat as might reasonably havo boon expected to result from tho marketing of 22,000 cattle in a single week, has boon suflioieut to entail severe losses upon Western drovers, a very consider able proportion of tho offerings being disposed of at prices actually lower than was paid for the stock in tho country. Tho decline was by no means uniform, somo grades being “ off " barely an while a will no more than coyer tho reduction in others. Good to choice quali ties of from 1,200 to 1,350 lbs average havo suffered most, not that tho character of tho do maud has essentially changed, but because tho supply largely consisted or those description!!. A#o will make good tho decline in smooth well fatted steers of lighter average (say from 1,080 to 1,150 lbs), while desirable stockers have sold steadily at prices not appreciably lower than pre vailed at tho oloso of the previous week. Prices of butchers' stuff, by which is understood com mon to choice cows and heifers, and fairish steers and oxen, have suffered to the extent of a Veal qjvlvoH havo boon too plenty, aud aro fully COo per 100 lbs lower, present rates being $3.00(5)5,25, with sales mostly at $3.50@J.51), Now milch cows are soiling at about former quotations, or at $20.00@46.00 per head, accord ing to quality. To-day only a moderate amount of trading was done, and tho fooling of depression prevalent during tho preceding* days of tho week was a feature of the market. There wore a number of Tory fine droves among tho offerings, ouo of which found a buyor at $0.25, and another at SO.OO. Early in tho week those droves woro hold at $7.00 and $0.75, respectively. Dotwoou 3,000 and 4,000 head remain In the yards unsold, and tho prospects for tho opening days of tho ensuing week are not cheering.
