*. -' r -V £ FINANCE AND TRADE. Dull Opening of Business Among Our Local Banks. Small Country Orders for Cnr ronoy—Clearings Light. The Produce Markets lets Active— Wheat Stronger. Provisions and Other Grain Steadier, FINANCIAL. No now features were expected to show them selves In the loan market, and there was no disap pointment at the quiet opening of business among tho banka. The only sign of greater animation was a alight Increase In the country orders for currency. Tho supply of paper was restricted, and the banks were anxious to extend accommodations to all de sirable borrowers. Collections have Improved of late, but are still slow, particularly In the city, and this deficiency sustains some demand from mer chants and miscellaneous sources for accommoda tion. > Halos of discount wore BQIO per centto regular borrowers. Special rates arc made to desirable outsidoborrowers. « On the street, rates wero 0018 per cent, with good paper In light supply. New York exchange was sold between banks at Js®soc per SI,OOO premium. The clearings were 53,100,000. BUSINESS DBCURASINO'AND CLEARINGS LESS.

The Public, May 18. PACIFIC MAIL Tho New York ItulUUn of Friday has this about thla most dangerous of all tho speculative Block* In tho market: In Pacific Mall stock there was a lively time, the prices ranging between y 14c and 10 Tie; tho nitnuul election tokos place on the .'list, and no notice lias yet been given of closing of tho transfer books. The Block has been In good borrowing demand for fomo time past, and proxies have been solicited both by tbu present management, which 1* the fame as that of (he Union Pacific Jtnilroad, and In behalf of the Panama Railroad. From soliciting .proxies tho contest bna developed into buying stock, and large purchases were made to-day, pre sumably for one or tho other of tho contending parties, although it was reported that a third party had been formed to secure a controlling Interest, with the vlcwof selling out nt a good profit. The ehani rise to-day brought out a good deal of long 'itock, which wilt render valueless some of tho liroxios already given.

Btato securities were dull, TUo week opened with continued depression on tho Block Exchange and a further shrinkage In values, A farther break In some of tho coal stocks to-day added to the prevailing weakness.

Pro* vldcd, that in case of defaults on contracts for fn tnro delivery, If it shall not bo shown that the seller had provided by a previous purchase of the property fur delivery on his contract, he shall, In the Judgment of the Committee, bo liable to pay, as penalty fur such default, damages not exceed* (ng 5 per cent of the value of the property sold." The above la the language of the rule of the Board of Trade (page SO) which particularly ap* piles to the transactions known as “comers.” Apparently the rule Is fair enough, and It was cer* tainly believed at the time of its adoption to be a fair regulation for tbo prevention of comers in produce. The rule Isa fair one; but that It has been taken advantage of to undnly depress the markets no ono can deny. And It Is self-evident t'Atlf our markets be depressed, from any cause, below the level duo to other points, the produce of the country will bo sent to those other points for sale Instead of to Chicago, Lot us take a case for Illustration. Baring the winter Mr. A buys from one or more parties 100,* 000 bu corn, to be delivered in May, agreeing to pay therefor -tOeperbu. Hu wants the com, and makes 'arrangements to pay for it, and ship It, when delivered. May comes round, and ho finds that the New York market has declined so mnch thatbo can only realize 40c per bu for tho grain In that city after paying tho cost of shipping it thither, lie takes the corn, nevertheless; he can not do otherwise, unless by going Into bankruptcy. He can do nothing but submit patiently to tho loss of Cc on each bushel of his corn. But if the mar ket advances Oc, so (bat com is selling hero otfiOo wtien the tlmu arrives for Us delivery, he runs tho risk of having to whistle for his com. Ho may have made freight contracts months previously, at a cheaper rnto than thofto ruling In May, hut tho latter are tho only ones considered In determining “the falrvaluo of tbo property for shipment.' l Hu-may even have sold the grain to Eastern parties at a small margin over tho cost at which It was agreed to bo delivered to him, end msy be utterly immocent of any attempt to put up tbo price after wards. That makes no difference. He cannot get tbo corn, becauso tho men who agreed to deliver It did not own It when they sold It, and omitted to buy It from any one' tilt the last minute of tho last business day In May. In that case, If tho original purchaser can prove that no attempt was tuadu by tho uthor party to purchase tho grain, the rule only provides that the defaulter ehall bo liable to pay 0 per cent damages,in (he Judg ment of tbo Committee.” He mar, or ho may not, recover that amount as penalty, the chances being decidedly against It. We need scarcely say that no man wbo is mean enough to repudiate a Just obli gation will experience any difficulty lu proving that be made provision for meeting It. Tho reference to shipping value would bo fair enough were It not for the one-sided dependence of New York and Liverpool prices on Chicago. Prices may advance hero without any effect lu Liverpool, ao long as British operators can buy at less figures elsewhere. But prices cannot decline hero with out producing weakness there. An operator la this city cables a couple of words to Liverpool, which, being translated, mean, “I can now ship you a cargo of No. Scorn at SUs per quarter, In cluding coat, freight, and insurance.” Ameri can and Banublau cent lu Liverpool,aro. no longerquoted at Stis (Id, becauso tho offer to sell at fidlessmakcsU necessary to offer that at’tho ro duced quotation, If it bu sold at all. It la the same with New York. Telegraphic advices are sent there offering to ship wheat to that city at $1,24 per bu, tho same wheat being held there at $1.20. And every time the shorts put out a line here, our mar ket goes down, which depresses New York unless wo ore aUU considerably above the Shipping point. /ltd. Asked. The abort scllcrt (has bare the dccldeti advantage bVer the brfydr. They cnti 'depress New York f>c perbn by the process of selling shbrl here. and can then liirn round and point to Umt depression ns n reason why they should not meet (heir obligations here. It la trne, ns charged, that the loops try to raise prices, nomettmes to the point of Inflation; but It Ir equally true that thosborta try their best to depress prices, sometimes to the starvation point. Thu one course has as much legality and moral* Ity on Its side ns the other, and the public Is only Interested In Ihclr eternal contest as the battle affects the public welfare. There ran be no doubt that while the widow and the orphan are interested In buying ns cheap a loaf as possible, the farmer Is also hound to obtain n« mnch for his produce as he can; and If Chicago short sellers depress the price here, or Chicago warehousemen charge more than those of other cities, the country owner of groin will not send It hero to ho slnugh* tered. That Is the stale of affairs now. The short Rollers preponderate, and buyers are discouraged, nml prices ore (or have been) depressed, because the rules are generally understood to favor the shorts ns against the longs. How would thu shorts regard the rules If they wore framed to read ns follows? The buyer of the property shall not be bold to hts agreement If at the maturity of the contract the said prop* erty bo not worth (ho contract price; the same to bo determined by reference to Its value for shipment to other points, or for manufacturing uses In this city. Provided, however, that In case of his refusal to take the property at the contract price, he ahull be liable to a penalty of 5 per cent, In the Judgment of the Committee, unless It he found that be had aold It to someone else before tbo maturity of the con* tract. • nv. o f. As we understand It, the short sellers would soon grow tired of such an arrangement; but that rule would bo Just m fair and equitable os Is tho gen erally accepted construction of the present rule against corners. Tho lending produce markets were generally quiet and steadier yesterday, the chief exception being wheat, which was active and stronger. The trading was chiefly speculative, very little being done for shipment In any direction.

LOUISVILLE MARKET. (lUportnl by Alexander llarthlll, Tobacco Broker) I.ouinvillb, Ky., Slay 20.—Tlie receipts for this week were 1,500 hlnls, being about 100 more than last week, of wblcb 1.1U3 were put on the market, and, with ioi reviews, made the saloa this week aggregate 1,290 hhds, being SOB leu titan last week. Among tho oiTcrtngs there was a good proportion of the better grades of heavy tobacco, while the recent hot weather has shown Its effect In the soft and heated condition of more hogsheads than wohavo seen for some time. The speculative demand lion continued during tho cntlrd week, and been confined to tho free purchases of heavy lugs and common to medium heavy leaf, which on Wednesday and Thursday were more Irregular and easier than they were before or slnco. With considerable leu offered during tho lost two days, the market was strengthened, and the wcskcloses with firm prices, which It will be seen are higher by 00c on common lugs and SI.OO to $1.50 on good heavy lugs, the latter exceptional, however, being the extreme prices for somo rich heavy lugs of somcof the heavy leaf selections sold this week. Common to medium heavylcaf sola In some Instances from fl.so to $2,00, and good to selections at SI.OO over Inst week. With the exception of one of the Regie buyer*, who bought good dry lugs freely all tho week up tIU yester day, tho other regular buyers showed little disposition to take hold of the lower grades at tho prices specula tors were paying, so that the market for the styles and grades they were buying has been sustained entirely by the country speculators, of whom one or two now ones appeared on the breaks this week. The higher grades were bought Irrespective of any “plant” excitement by those who were guided solely by the law of supply and demand. Manufacturing tobnecot hare been very firm, (rood and flno fllicra realizing 81.00 higher, with occasional bogthcada, however, going at Inst week's prices. The bent black wrappers sold up to $17.79, which Is soo higher than last week, but, coDalderlngquamy, It Is SI.OO tllghertbsnlast week. Lowcrquatlllea hare advanced In the same ratio, with a scarcity of all grades. Ma hogany wrappers, of which we hid very few, sold alio • •1.00 higher. One tub thin bright Virginia wrapper sold at $39.00, and i tub extra bright at f 00.00. Smok ing tobaccos partook of the general activity, and com .mon imoken are &oc higher, and good colony from $1.(10 to $1.60 higher, with few of the latter offered. The receipts of cutting tobaccos were very light, par ticularly of the nner grades, with no selections this week. The demand was active during the entire week, and prices are SI.OO higher on tho different grades sold. The offerings of export tobaccos wero In good propor tion to others, for which there was an active specula tive demand by outsiders for common to medium grades leaf, and common and good lugs, showing an advance of SI.OO<jW.W, particularly on the lugs of tbe fine leaf selections, specialties of rich wrapping leaf was In flood demand by exporters, wrappers sell ng up to SlH.oo this week, which, although 29c leas than the highest of last week, were, considering quality and order, at least fioo higher. Several who houghtlastweekontrpceulatlTDaccouat have bought little or none this week, the largo receipts now coming, In daily, the very favorable weather during the last week for the plants, and tho contradictory reports which come from even ttie heavy tobacco districts, has caused the regular export buyers to be cautious In their operations for the present,—the only exception to this being fur very rich heavy wrappery selections for both the North and South of Europe,—which they take readily at full prices. 1 revise quotations as follows: Jfanffeserltit. lUtmi bodlttf.

A MEAN - CAPTAIN. Capt. D. 0. Linde, a fisherman at Washington Harbor, Wls., writes to Tub Tninunß for the In formation of vessels which arc liable to get aground on the shoals In that vicinity, that they need not expect any assistance, In case of disaster, from the fishermen at Washington Harbor. As the cause far this bo relates the following circumstance: On the 28th or 20th of November last the schr MaryL. Higgle cot oahoro on Fisherman Shoal and hoisted a flag of distress. The wind was blowing a gale from the Northwest. Cant. D. O. Linde launched his boat, and hired three men to assist him, and succeeded In rescuing the Captain and crew, and landed them on Washington Island. Cnpt, Linde came near losing bis life, and spilt the keel of bis boat. Seven of the crew slopped at Ids house for six days, and ho attended to tbclr wants to the best of h!s ability. When the time came to settle the fisherman wan offered $lO by the Cantata of the Higgle. This the fisherman refused, an the damage to hia boat amounted to more than that, not speaking of the board of the crew and the hire of the three men Ho thought $23 would bo little enough. The Captain, whoso name Is Moore, however, rufused to pay this amount, and left without paying tho poor fisherman anything for his services. Hr. Linde closes bin letter with tho following pronouncta mento: ‘ ‘ Captains who sail on the lake, bo careful and do not run on Fisherman’s Shoal this sum mer, for, tf you do, you will have to stop there until tho storm Is over. Men do not like to risk their lives and property and then got no thanks for X/AICE MICHIGAN. CHICAGO.
