SUMMARY OF ST. LOUIS MARKETS.
AH things ror.!l(lereO, tlie local grain market was decidedly strons yesterday. There
was enough late buying to offset one of the biggest slumps of the year, with a little balance-
to spare on the bull Hide. The wonder was not that tho advance was so great, but
that there was any advance at alL At the opening It seemed as though nothing short
nt a miracle would put the maiket tip. Liverpool and other markets had responded to
the domestic decline of Thursday and receipts here and at other primary points were
again heavy. There was little outside speculative demsnd and tho bears could see no
reason why they should not press their advantage. They did so until the price of May
wheat was hammered to the low point of the season. There was a great deal of over
selling and offerings were well absorbed on the downturn. The reaction came when It
was found that' thero was an excellent cash demand and that the clearances for the
week had been even larger than had been predicted by tho leading bulls. In the last
hour there was enough buying to wipe out tho early losses.
Corn followed wheat early In the session, but there was good support from local pro
fessionals and exporters. Though receipts were heavy, there was a good shipping
May wheat opened 1-1 Cc off and closed 1-lEc off.
May corn opened 1-lGc off and closed H'&Uc up.
May oats closed He up.
Receipts of produce were good and fruits and vegetables were steady o a trifle lower.
Thero was a good rally in local securities at the afternoon-session. Commerce and
Mississippi Valley were strong spots.
Yesterday's bank clearings were 7,31,081, bnlances JSSl.ITS. Discount rate were
steady between 5',J and 6 per cent.
Spot cotton was 1-lCc lower In the local market.

AT CLOSE OF SESSION.
CASH AND EXPORT DEMAND
Oversold Traders Reenter Market
on l'.uying Side in the
All grains open.-d weal: and continued on
the downturn during the greater portion
of yesterday's session, but there was a reac
tion at thej-lose which wiped out all of (he
early los;en nnd advanced the ruling op
tions a trifle above the final quotations of
tho previous day. Longs continued to Bell
out on bearish news. Argentine shipments
were reported heavy. Liverpool and orher
Kuropean markets were weak and local and
primary receipts were heavy. O verso lit
traders came back in the last hour, when it
was found that the export demand waa
good, and that the clearances for the week
were above the average. Southern and
Southwestern mlllcre were excellent cash
buyers nt the close.
The Modern Sillier says: "In response to
a special Inquiry, reports from the principal
winter-wheat States show that little, dam

Trading In corn was moderate. The mar
ket followed wheat on the downturn early
ln the session, but later a good cash and
export demand and speculative buying In
Chicago caused many of the early sellers to
recover their lines. The tone was fairly
strong at the close.

atlre Supply Small Beef Cattle
Steady llogi Close Lower.
NATIVE CATTLB-Beef Steers Supplies of na
tive cattle were scarcely any different from last
Friday, though the proportion ot beef steers was
slightly larger and generally of better kind.
Aiound a uozen loads of steers were on sale,
some of which were good. This class of trade
opened lifeless, buying Interests being sparsely
represented. Sales were negotiated 10tf20c lower
than earlier in the week. Comparison with the
clow of lat week shows steer vaiues to be now no
higher, although the week started with a lively
demand and prices somewhat advanced. During
the mldlde portion ot the week the advantage
was lost ana since then values have ruled on a
steady basis with last Friday.

ltutcner Cattle bupplies of butcher cattle,
while very light, were equal to the demand. Buy
ers had no urgent orders and were not Inclined
to do business except on an easier basis, which
ultimately prevailed. Canners and bulls ruled
quiet, while a fair demand was displayed for
veals at steady prices. The week's supply has
been moderate and composed largely of medium to
good kinds of cows and heifers. During the first
two days of the week the demand was very good
and sellers were able to force uo values around
10315c. which was about all lost later. Trading
the latter end ot the week has been slow and
values are no different than last week's close.
The comparison shows canners and bulls ,to be
about steady, with veal calves, however, a shads

SHEEP During the first four day of tali
week the supply of sheep was quite small: In
fsct, not half sufficient to meet the requirements
of the trade. Anything that could possibly be
used for mutton found ready sale at prices fully
as good as any time recently. If not a shade
better. The market Is now on the highest basis
for- several months. The half-fat and only lair
grades sold a little slow, but much better on
account of the smaller supply of good stock than
usual. This market needs each day In the week
to satisfy the rimand for from 2.500 to 3.500 rood
sheep and lambs, and unless this number la re
ceived urgent orders have to go unfilled. The
siocser traae remains quiet, witn only a rew on
sale and the demand also limited. To-day the
supply was small and the market steady.
So far this week the sales Included lambs that
sold at $537. the bulk at $636.75. Native and
Southwest mutton sheen sold at a range of $4.50!)
S.M. with the bulk of the sales going at $535.25.
Stockers sold at $1.5033: cull lambs at $234.50
and bucks sold at $334.25. principally at $3. "iff 4;
Mexican yearlings at $6.75: Western Iambs at $7
and Western yearllogs at $5.2;35.50.
HOGS A very small supply of hogs wss on
sale, the receipts amounting to around 3.500 head,
which, in reality. Is not half enough to fill the
requirements of the trade and allow buyers to
fill their orders. Outside conditions which Influ
ence the market were unfavorable to sellers and
the buyers, especially the packers, were very
bearish and Inclined to do no business except on
a lower basis. Trading was very stow until a
basis was once established, which was about
10c lower than on Thursday on the medium to
best hogs, while the Inferior to only fair ones
were 10315c off. and very slow sale. The great
est decline was on the little pigs and Inferior
lights, ine real gooa ouicuer nogs were me best
sellers, city butchers being active operators so
lo-e ss there were sny good hogs for sale. A a
rule the quality cf the offerings was not as good
as usual. The late market was fullv as good
as the opening and the clearance complete:
Fair to best butcher and heavy hogs sold at
87.15S7.50; good medium weights and packers at
$7.10457.30. the bulk at $7.2087.25; lights. 150 to
190 lbs., at $6.6587.20. the bulk at $6.9037.15:
lights. 100 to 150 lbs, at 1636.50: pigs at $5,750
(.20: roughs and culls at $5.7536.25.
The' top of the market was $7.50 snd the bulk
ef the hogs above 150 lbs. average sold at $7,059
7.30. against a top of $7.60, and the bulk at $7.15
37.45 on Thursday.
HORSES During the latter part at the week
the suprly cf horse has been unusually Isrge and
more than the usual number ot auction days nave
been brought Into requisition to handle the of
ferings, which resulted In an auction being held
on Friday, the first on this day for several
months. About 200 hesd were available, repre
senting some holdovers from Thursday and a few
new consignments. The market was. very good
. h- Mmimstances. but there was the usual
-u-r-stlon cf earinees noticeable at the close -of

satisfactory during the week, a big demand and
stesdy prices having prevailed during the greater
riart ot It. Some very choice heavy horses and

been drawn from all. over the Eastern country.

steady at'a decline of 1 point to an advance of
5 points, the Improved tone being ' due to' con
tinued support by tho clique, further covering of
shorts and a somewhat better Liverpool cable
than was required to meet the close of New York
yesterday. The early estimate for to-day's re
ceipts also showed some decrease In the figures
of last year, but almost Immediately fallowing
the call there was a renewal of the liquidation
and short selling noted yesterday morning and
rices were rapidly forced down. May selling as
ow as 9.65. or 22 points below the best of the
morning. 52 points below the best price of the
week and 17 points belcw last night's finals.
The other options at this time showed declines
of from 10 to 24 DOlnts. as compared with the
best of the morning. At this level the clique
again came to the support of the market and a
sharp rally ensued which carried prices back a
few points, but the steadier tone was followed
Just before the close bv another wave of selling,
which closed the market weak, net 9 to 25 points

level of the season, with March, the snot month.
showing the most pronounced weakness, reflecting
apparently the desire nt the longs to avoid Im
mediate deliveries. The selling towards the
close was based largely on the heavier In-slght
for the week which, according to the figures of
the New Tork Cotton Exchange, show 191093. as
compared with 1S4.5M last year. The estimates
for to-morrows receipts at leadln; points were
comparatively heavy. The Southern spot markets
showed a disposition to respond readily to the

duced to 10c for middling uplands. To-days port

There was another heavy selling move
ment In wheat, anfl with but little support
the market ruled weak the greater part of
the day. Opening prices were easier on
lower cables and on the announcement of
the othclal Argentine shipments for tha

at the start and the market weakened May
declining to 'iSfsSTatc. There was a scat

tho best buyers, although there was also
a good demand from commission bouses.
The weather was the principal bull factor
