4,500. There was little change to
day III the market. The supply was light
and the demand was good and prices gen
erally llrm. Choice heavy cattle were
scarce and sold strong, the best offered
bringing $5.00, while .1 fancy article would
have found 11 buyer at $0 or better without
a doubt. Ordinary light steers were some
what neglected and were inclined to be
weak, but in all other branches of the mar
kgj there was firmness.
HOOS Kccelpts, L'G.OuO. Tho market was
quite stiong to-day. A further decrease
In the receipts and the llrm market quoted
on 'change seemed to Induce u feeling of
greater confidence, and the day's supply
was bought up quick at prices averaging
3c higher than yesterday's closing quota
tions. Scarcely anything in heavyweights
sold below $1.10. and few of the light kind
went below $3.03. The choices of the former
reached 31. loll 1.42!-, and tliere were sales
of assorted light tin high as $1,1311.20. The
quality was lair and most of the sales
were at $l.l5'ii4.30 for averages of more
than 230 pounds, and largely at S3.95UI.I0
SHEEP Kccelpts, G.OflO. There was a
light supply or sheep here to-day and as
the demand was active the tendency was
In the direction of better prices. No decid
ed advance was made, however, quotations
tanging from $2.50 10 $1.30 tor poor to
choice sheep, and $3.235.35 for lambs.

Washington, Feb. 2S. Secretary Morton,
at the request of the Associated Press,
makes the following statement regarding
the meat trade of the United States with
certain foreign countries:
Export American beet Is of such a high
quality that a parliamentary committee in
England, In 1S03, reported that In sonn; of
the most tnshlonnble and aristocratic mar
kets of London It was frequently sold as
"prlmo Scotch and English meat." In fact,
the committee said that In some of the
large meat selling ostaiiiiMiments, in the
aristocratic West end of London, thete was
piactlody n other than American meat
sold. Yet It was called "English" and
The prices of American dressed beef, per
V pounds, nt the Central meat market
of London on December 31, 1S0I, were as
Ameilcan beef, killed In England, $10.12t',
a. hundred to ttn.S7'i; refrigerator, Ameri
can beef, $ll.l2'ji12.12'-. per hundredweight
for hindquarters; for forequurlers, $7,501;
The United Kingdom of Cireat Ilrltaln re.
celved, during the llrst nine months of
1S0I, 3u3,VIO beef cattle, from the United
States, and paid S.2O.Di-o,00O for the same.
During the same year (Ireat Ilrltaln took
213,211,000 pounds of bacon from the United
States nt a valuation of $20,S0O,O0o, For tho
nine months ending September 20, 1S0I, the
Fnlted Slates exported into the kingdom of
(Iie.it Ilrltaln 222.073.ujo pounds of bacon,
ns against no.OOO.noo pounds during tho cor
responding months ot lMi.
Thus It Is observed that tho bacon trade
between the United States and fireat llrlt
nlu was Increased about 43,000,000 pounds
during the year lull. Hill, during the year
HOI. Uormaiiy took from the United Slates
altogether of live cattle. UP to (he close
of December 31, only 0,108 head. Ilelgluni
took during the same period of time of live
cattle 4,133 head, while Franco consumed of
American cattle In tho tame period 13,111
From January 1.1S93. to February 10, 1S03,
the date of the last report iiiiulo to the
United Slates department of agriculture,
Franco had taken 13,333 head of live cat.
Durlnir tho calendar year 1S0I Franco took
of American beef, salted and canned, 7.703,
370 pounds, nt a valuation of $G21,CS2. Dur
ing the same period, of tho same kind of

During the- six months ending December

533 pounds, and Franco received from iho
United States, of the samn products In tho
same. time. 3.903.701 pounds. The meat pro
ducers of the United States send (only the
very best grades of live cattle and dressed
and cured meats to tho European markets,
It Is claimed by the United Slates Inter
national dealers In meals that all iho hue
and cry against .th" ed Idleness of Ameri
can meats and all the charges against tho
sanitary condition of American live cattle
sent abroad am Inspired by the land own
ing protectionists of (Sermany and France.
They desire. It H said, to make cattle and
meat higher In the Herman and French
markets by making cattle and beef scarcer,
The herds ot cattle and swine. In fact.
nil the domestic animals of the United
Stales are in splendid sanitary condition.
There has not been a case ol ' pleuro-pneiN
nionla In any of the United States or ter.
rltorles during the last three years. Thero
is no contagious. Infectious or communica
ble disease among the domestic animals In
any state or territory of the Union, There
has not been and there will not be shipped
to any European port any animal or the
products of any animal which has not been
InsDected and declared healthy, wholesome
and edible. The United States will continue
to furnish all meatless Europe with the
best and cheapest pork and beef in the
T.lquors for Kansas.
