TOnfimukl Activity in Bail Shipments— lake Freights Doll—Grain in Store. FINANCIAL. (fcthlßß faU occurred to change Ui* regular [but father slowly-moving current of business at the banks. Loan* an only la moderate request, as the wants and cash means of euslcmsrs teem pretty evenly balanced. This state of things is not likely to continue, as the low rates of freights to the seaboard cities will be apt to bring forward farm products largely for shipment. Ths quarrel among the trunk railway linos, If contin ued, must put largo extra profit* Into the pockets of tho fanners. Cook County Is in the market for the loan of SIOO,OOO on five months time. As this Is Just the kind of a loon the packers need, maturing In October, wo hear that it is likely to be taken at very low figures. Borne mentioned 7 per cent; and a rate down towards 6 was hinted at by some parties. Two or throo weeks later It doubtless could be placed even below that figure. Tho accumulations of the packers for the past few yean have placed them far aboveboard. It ia their money that for several summers past has kept rates eo low In this market. Between spring and fall they have on hand probably more ready each than any other class of our business men. lute* of discount atlbo banks remain at 8019 per cent, .with occasional concessions on largo “gilt edge " loans by some of (ho banks.

Clary h Taylor yesterday exhibited a line sample of new* wheat cars from near Dallas, Tex.,—tho lint of tho season. A letter received in this dly last Monday from En. gland states that tho writer la now buying for ueo in bis mill wheat from India at 3Cs per quarter, which is equal to about 87c per Inhere. The writer also ■tales that that wheat is equal in quality to Milwaukee No. 1. If so, the Untied States is Ukely to meet with a formidable competitor in the East Indies at no die* taut day. Tho duttrs collected yesterday at the Chicago Custom Uotipc weref3.763.2t. No foreign goods were received. The leading produce markets were irregular yester day, grain being generally stronger, and provisions weaker. Tho weather was again lowering, without actual rain, but a good many expect further outpour. Inga, and some prognosticated a wet summer. The receipts of grain were email all round, with fair ship ments, and the weekly exhibit showed o satisfactory reduction of our stocks In store. Lake freights were dull and unchanged, at about 3*{c for corn and 3#@3,\'o for wheat by toll to Buffa lo. Hall freights were settvo at former rates, at 200 per 100 Iha to Now York and Baltimore, 220 to Phila delphia, and 30a to Boston. Tito freight engagements include 13,000 bn wheat, 930,000 bn corn, and 15,000 bn oats. In addition to 3,000 pkgs lard and bacon taken through to Liverpool via New York at 60c spo do per 100 It>a. Grain from Chicago to Cork for or ders was quoted at 47c, and to Liverpool at 4Cc, specie. In dry-goods circles there was llltlo that was new to note. No great activity was apparent in any depart ment, but in a quiet .way a pretty largo quantity of goods was distributed, and Jobbers allowed little in clination to complain. Prices were nominally steady. The demand far groceries continues liberal, and tho tons of (bo market is healthy and firm. In tho bnttsr and chccee markets there was a dull and unsettled feeling, but prices underwent no important change. Dried fruits were in good request, both on local and country account, and, aside from prunes, tho prevalent feeling was fairly firm. Fish wero without quotable change, though an early decline In lake fish is among the probabilities. Bagging was quiet, and tho quotations of Lewiston, Otter Creek, and Amos keag wero reduced a *u'c. Coal and wood continue doll and unsettled. There wen no Important changes in paints and oils. Tho yard dealers In lumber report o moderate busi ness at unchanged prices. Tho wholesale market was active nearly to the extent of the offerings and steady. Metals, nails, and hardware were in moderate demand at former quotations. Tho wool market was dull and weak. Tho offerings were small, but there was lllUo inquiry, and Rollers were disposed to shade quotations whenever It became necessary. Hides wero in mod onto request and steady. Timothy hay continues firm, being acarco and in request, while other grades and pralrto wero rather quiet, beeds were quiet, clo ver being lower, and timothy firm. Poultry and eggs were in moderate supply and firm. Bid. Asked. .1921/ 129# .114*/ 114# .114*; 119 ,190’f 121# .129*2 199 V .lIB.V 118’.' -ii7j» m# .133 ..... .616 V 611?; 43# CS (tint.
