6 FINANCE AND TRADE. Iso Variation in tho Dullness of tho Loan Market* Nsw York Exchange Weak—Tho Clear ings 53,000,000. The Prodnee Markets IrregtilarsssPro- visions Active and Easier. Grain in Fair Demand—Lake Freights More Active. FINANCIAL. There were no new developments In the clty ce.rUflr.ata lutiincs*. The bank* Hint bold those coming duo are compelled lo protest them. Jinny of the certificate* held abroad bear the guarantee of local business-men. who have discounted them like other paper. The city having defaulted, these guarantor* will be sued nnd forced to pay. The Idtia Unit Um old certificate* have been repudiated I* preposterous. They are not repudiated, but are to bo paid, principal nnd Interest. This payment must be made In accordance with law, nml the law. n« Interpreted by the Circuit Court and explained In these columns, Is. that the only mentis for the pay ment of the back certificates l« nut of the back taxes. Mayor Ilnyne's references to the nnluwful debt nnd lllegcl certificate* have generated the Idea In some quarters that thev were preliminary to a refusal to pay the certificates at all, This Is a great error. Tholr Il legality wan mentioned only to show that It would be impossible to continue the issue. The offering* of paper In the local loan market were restricted. The paper maturing I* in excess of that presented for discount. City and country borrowers aro alike paying up. Them la a con siderable surplus of loanable funds, and good bor rower* are readily accommodated. Untcs of di-connt «t tlic Lank* nro 85710 per cent. Collections nro made to good ouudde bor rowers. On the street, rate* are GSSIR jier cent, ami bus!- nc-fl it! dull. New York exchange was weak, ami sold between bank* ol Sotß.'Uc premium for SI,OOO. The country orders for currency continue light. The clearing* wore $3, 000,000. JJEW ENGLAND HANK AND MANLTACTCIJING STOCKS. The Boston Commercial IJullethi says tliat the market for bank stock* Is ‘•(•oft.” nml It Is ex tremely dlfllcult now to sell at .'i per cent less the same stocks which were* in active demand two weeks oca at the higher roto. A* n rule they ore Belling too high, and It Is only the great case nud abundance of money which keeps them up where they aro.. The tendency Is downward, and not only this, the quoted prices arc not all sales. In manufacturing stocks, the same general fea tures of dullness and Inaction continue us before noted, only more intensified. A few slocks held up. Ames Company has fnrthor declined from MOO ‘to 270; Atlantic. 47 to MOll-golng down with n rim; Dates has receded from to U7?4; Hamil ton, 825 to 800; Manchester, 11(3 to 115; Merri mack. 102.7 to 1000; Nnnmkeag, 30014 to 01)*4; and York. 3227, ex-dividend, to 1220.

The result hut been to advance In the market Ihe premium on halves and quarter-* to tf|* per rent: this makes them coat about l*l> 4 c cold In this market; in Snu Frandeco, they rule nt {'.'ifTpllUc gold. FINANCE** AintOAn. There Inn* been rather a better demand for money daring the past week, but no materia! improvement in Ihe rates of discount. Indeed, although n bet ter inquiry has existed, the rate? of discount ary Mill as low as they can reasonably be, the he»t Hirer months' bills being taken In the open market at l?a per cent. There Is still no reason to believe in any change from this condition of affairs. Now and then a solid invest mcnl. such ns an Indian loan, or a loan for the Metropolitan Hoard of Work*, is introduced to public nutico, nnd tills Is, of cour-e, quickly subscribed. Tho applications arc cer tainly nut so numerous a* they used to be In the days of “enterprise,” when nearly everybody, In cluding clerks, “ wrote,” with o view to secure a premium. If any. Now, and undoubtedly the clr ciiia-' nice is u satisfactory one, tho applications ar- ol ;. bona flue diameter, ami, though thev do not amount lo the million* sterling which excited tiMmiishtiu-ni in funner days, they are usually twice in. much as is required, nnd till* fact ahmc I? sufficient to show that there is a large supple of money seeking profitable employment.

The charges for elevating and transferring grain In Ilafliito have now been reduced to J 4 c per hu, which includes live days’ storage. The boys on’Change were uiniKttally frisky yes terday. They wore sportive prolmbiy for the buiuc reason that ‘•The stars above are brightly "hitting. 2b-caii.ru they’vo nothing e!*o to do.*’ There Ik no doubt that it {food deal more business Ik now transacted on ’Change, by many commission men. than wan possible before the pn«.mgo of the rale to prevent corners. Aureal many people in tin-country semi In orders to cell short who would bo afraid to do tnilf they were afraid of being caught in a tight place by a comer; ami more people arc able to bny “ long,” because they could not otherwise find enough panics willing to sell to them. The speculative trading Is thus largely In created by the feeling of security given to short sellers “under the rale,” ami it Is no wonder that short selling has become popular enough to leave It in doubt whether It bo more fiodiionsblo or vulgar. The present wheat market furnishes nn apt Ulna tratlon of thlstrnth. With our light receipts of the spccntnllvv grade (onlyllcar-luadsof slralghtNo. *- spring inspected into store yesterday! it would have required comparatively little capital lo comer onr market at anytime during this spring and summer—at least to corner U to tho point where much higher prices would havy brought out all tho available wheat In tho country, and made glad the hearts of the warehousemen by a big demand fur storage room, while tho hi I ,'her prices would have made glad tho heart of the funn er abo. IJut with no rule against corners, many of those who are now short would have been afraid to take that side, and the rest would have Invested less heavily in that direction than now. We do nalmwumu to my how far a gain In tnu volume of merely speculative hnsliioss will compeiHate for the loss of an actual trade In grain due to the bear ish tendencies of a market In which short-sidllng pnqioudenttert. \V» simply state the fact, anil chiefly for Uni pnnxine of indicating that o prop osition H change; the rules would nut necessarily attract art affirmative vote from all the member* of the Hoard of Trade. Thu difficulty of oljlujnlng n change would be all the greater, because U scarcely seems possibly that a majority would agree upon any other rule that might he suggested in perfectly equitable between both parlies. Thoio tire many who wish for a reform of present conditions, but do not wish to leap back into tho old maelstrom of urtlllclal excite ment from which the Hoard (■iiiit:iml with so imieii dllllcnlty u few months ago, Hut the ques tion will hear consideration. It Is Important enough to demand thy gravest thought from all who am interested in tho welfare of Chicago as the commercial focus of the (ircat Northwest, There can by no doubt that n titling solution of the prob lem may by arrived at. Two or three failures ilo nut prohibit tinal success. Hob IJnicc (not ours) saw eighteen failures followed by victory on the nineteenth trial; and our Hoard of Trudy may ‘ ‘‘do likewise.” :15? li*^ • I l'j‘* lli-H ; i£i i£i .n; ii7', .»**H **3 jr> Il N n-iiorted that the movement of pruln “by bite ami rail” hint been fsteinlve enough to ennsu npsrtlul blockade nt Rnlfub) now, owing to the (liiticuity of oldulnlng cars rnt>Mly onough to lake uvvuy the us il Ip iiourcd into lhatcUy.

Some excitement occurred in the latter part of tho session by Kuropeau turns, mid the markets wore somewhat stronger in conse quence, Tho ducllnu in HnglMi consuls, uud the rumored excitement In Paris, were regarded iiy many as indications that the attitude of Km'iand ou the 'Turkish question Is deemed kulhelent to cause grave apprehension* that Die com in? struggle will not ho Inn one-sided iiffulr some folks have talked of, In which all Ku rope would become a Turkey gobbler, and gobble it so rapidly tliat Die allatr would lie over In a day. Uwasfeirtd that the complication may lead to a general war of no short dumtion, In which many of the Powers of Kurupe, and more than one of Asia, will take part. A very fuw expressed the belief that diplomacy will prove Itself equal lu the la-k of settling tho diUlcnlty without a resort to arms. Thu demand for dry poods was fair, nod only fair.

ELEVATING CTIAnORH, While the owners of the elevators at Chicago In* slst upon the outrageous charge of 2c per bushel for elevating grain, thus driving the business away from the lakes, the elevators nl other points are making reduction after reduction to assist the vessel business us much ns possible. At IlulTnlo, the Committee of the Western Elevating Associa* Hon met the day before yesterday nml decid ed to tlx the rule for elevating at Jjo to the grain and lie to the ves sel. Including tire days’ storage. This Is a reduction of per bushel, nml ought to be low enough to satisfy the most exacting. Alt that!* asked of the Chicago elevator* Is that they should reduce to 1 cent per bushel, and they refuse on the idea that they cannot alfurd to do it, though the IlulTnlo elevators can afford todo It ut much less. It Is a well-known fact that all the elevator men In thl* city have made princely fortunes, which they could not have done if their charges had nut been unreasonably high. Now Hint all other brunches of business are Buffering, and have to be conteni with small profits, there Is no reason why they should not Also mako some sacrifices and grow rich a little slower thuu they have been lu the Luhit heretofore. TfIVINO to hethkncij. The owners of tugs at thin port hold a meeting last evening at the olllce of the Chicago Dry-Dock Company for the purpose of considering means to bring about A reduction In expensed, which at present more than balance the income. Thu meet ing was largely attended, and was n very hot one. No result, however, was reached, ami, Judging from the feeling evinced by some of those present, It Is hardly probable that anything will ho accomplished. It was proposed that one-third of the lugs now running should hu laid up, which would give tin: others more to do. lint n stumbling-block to this proposition was found In those persons who owned lint one tug each. Tin y claimed that those who lutd more than onu would Always have one or more tugs In service, and thus he able to servo their regular customers, while they would have to lay up omi-thlrd of the time, and love some of their customers. A projmßltlon v.as also mudu to reduce Ihn towlng-rutcs jvj per cent, hut this was also found to hu objectionable to a majority of those present. Thu meeting adjourned very abruptly, without having taken any action whatever, it Is hardly probable that any milted action in regard to this mailer can ho taken. The probability Is, that each tug-ownor will net Independently hereafter, and make such rates ns will drive many of tho more conservative tugs oat of the business. LAKK KIIIIS. KIIIK.
