view of the South
BEEP STEEBS-Extremcly liberal iiup.
plies last week, not only hero and 'lil
caco, but at other markets an well, to
gether with decidedly unfavorable reports
each day from eastern outlets placed a
"big stick" in buyers' hands which they
used "plenty ' after Monday, tho net loss
for the week being fully 26c to 60c, all
grades sharing In tho break. Monday of
this week Chicago hud 20,000. which was
fully enough, but hero only 1,600 were on
sale, followed by but S.a on Tuesday
the market showing up a little more
active upon Hunt weight cattlo, but only
steady upon heavy as well as medium
quality Mixed yearling sold at $8.30, as
compared with the high point of 8.7;
on Monday of last week, while, tho better
grades of heavier beeves brought $8.00 to
35.25, figures that can bo compared with
tho top ot $8.65, also on Monday of Inst
week Fair to good beef ranged from
$7 75 to $8.00, while the common and short
feds brought $7.2o to $7.76, going almost
wholly to packers, as feeder buyers have :
not cared for them during tho last ton
days, the removing of competition from
that sourco having a decided bearing
upon that particular class. Today" tho
run is of very moderate proportions. 2.WM
here, and only 13,500 at Chicago, where
17.000 wero expected, the market ruling
strong to 10c higher, although for the
three days light weight beef, which still
commands a better favor thun heavy. In
some teases can bo considered a little
higher, perhaps 100 to 15c. but no general
improvement upon other grades haa taken
place. Indications rolnt to a very fair
run of cattle for the balance of the
month, mora so at Chicago than here, nnd
it Is doubtful If any decided upturn will
tako place until the bulk of short-fed
cattle has been marketed; for the time
being, receipts will bo the governing fao
tor. COWS AND HEIFEItS The severe
break, as noted above In tho beef mar
ket last week, was reflected to the fullest
extent upon this class, as a full 33c to
60c decline In prices was recorded at the
close Monday and Tuesday of this week
a little better feeling prevailed, and while
some of the sales look a dime higher,
"steady" wos the actual condition, until
tho extreme small run today helped put
on another 10c While good stock ap
pears. much more wanted than any other
clAMfrTt takes real good heifers to now
bring $7-60. with $7.00 paid for tho best
cows, the bulk of soles for good heifers
being between $7.00 and $7.55 and $8.00 to
Jft&O for fat cows. Present quotations for
tho different classes of butcher stock are
as follows: Good to choice cows and heif
ers. $6.60 to $7.W, with fancy grades a
little higher possibility; fair to good, W.7S
to tfl.60. and medium and common. $3.60
to $3.23, canners being In normal sup.
ply, but very slow sale. In the feeder
stock line, there seems quite a demand
for both calvey heifers and cows on the
light order nnd possessing ft world of
quality at a range of $4.00 to $7.00. nnd
must be good to reach the latter mark,
while the general run of cows Is be
tween $3.00 nnd $8.00. The recent breaking
butcher stock market hos not been
brought about by heavy receipts, as they
hnve only been normal, but to cheap
steers can be attributed the setback. A
moderating of receipts will help the mar
ket yet to nil appearances there seems
aulte a supply of cattle to still come
forward during the remainder of May,
and this Is especially so nt Chicago.
Bl'LLS The bull market has kept pace
with the others as far aB tho "break Is
concerned, being Mfflc lower at last
week's close and continuing steady so far
this week Best fat bulls are now selling
at I7.CO0R.2S. although there Is but a very
few that reach the latter price. Fair to
good butcher bulls range from
with bolognas bringing 35.&&JN5.26. accord
ing to flesh and weight. In the stooker
class bulls are In very poor demand.
te.00 being the popular price for feeders
of B0 to 1 050 pounds, yet these go begging
unless they are real nice, in which case
thur urn eelllnr below $8.00. Yearling
. bulls on tho calf order, with plenty of
. oallty range from $8. 767.25. Receipts
I of bulls show quite a llttlo Increase In
numbers lately and future prices will de
pend a great deul upon what tho fat
cattle market does.
CALVES The severe slump In prices
last week upon all other grades of killer
cattle had no effect whatever upon veal
calves. In fart ttn week really closed
with a 25c advance, but It was confined to
the strictly choice lightweights which
sold readily at $9.7610.oa This week's
market Is a "repeater" of last week, with
choice light veal again selling as above
at while all other classes con-
. tlnue upon a eteadv basis, with fair to
good lightweights .00rfa.&0 and a few
common oualltv of the same "'heft."
$7 6'Mj8.S! Heavier veal consisting of S
to wy pounds, choice fat calves, are sell
ing right along nt I7.7WJS25; fair to good
quality same weight, $6.60r7.60, while a
few that urn common have dropped down
to 3C.00. Although stock cales have been
In rather moderate supply and the de
mand for them better than for almost
any other Blocker class, prices for them
have dropped back 24c, good ones now
bringing but $7XO7 75, but a range of
$7ong7.25 covers nearly all the sales,
still a few that were real common sold
as low as $400. The light supply of veal

Here Is a fair likeness of another
"mighty good" Iowan over In Monona
county, whero llko his father, F. ,1).
Wlncgar, ho Is "oh top" as a farmer and
llvo stock dealer. Of Teutonic descent,
It goes without saying that "Warren Is
a hustler, has mastered all tho details of
his profession and Is a Judge of llvo stock
recond to none, He Is a firm believer In
tho South- Omaha market, where his
shipments read, "National," and whero
his visits ore always looked forward to
.with a grc&t deal of pleasure.

on sale, tlip plainer cattle of the same

but very little attention at $7.60(81.76, a
amplo being 1.071 nounds Mnmlnv at
$7.m. . General receipts nro mostly made

selling between $7.09 and 37.CO. while
stock calves, which arc In the smallest
supply of stock cattle, range from $7.25
up to 18.00. "She" stockers have suf
fered fully ns much ns warmed-up steers,
block cows ranging all tho way from $3.50
to M.S0 and heifers $3.60 to $7.25. Owing
to tho advancing season, receipts of io"M

with tho present unsatisfactory fat cattlo
market, It appears doubtful If stockcr
grades will weaken much further and
this seems especially so upon those of
HOGS Our report of a week ago to
day upon the hog market still holds
good and conditions are Just (lie same
now as at that time. There, haa been
some fluctuations, tho low point being
on Thursday last, when tho bulk dropped
down to $S.fof.15, top $3.20, while today's
prices are $8.15&8.25 and top $8.30. The
provision market, whllo acting heavy, Is
about holding Its own! thore Is practi
cally no shipping) demand and as Indica
tions still point to libera! supplies, prices
will naturally bo affected by them and
a fluctuating market prevail, showing
somo advance with a light run, and
dropping buck when heavy. Eight dol
lar hogs aro still predicted.
SHEEP A pretty good-slrcd run of
sheep at nil markets last week, coupled
with very unfavorable reports from east--rn
consuming centers, tnve buyers a
chance to "bear down" upon prices,
which they did to the oxtent of 25ff40o
confined, howevur, nlmost wholly to
lambs, as there was hardly enough old
slieop to nffoitl a fair test, tho few that
wero on sale really showing a little de
cline. At the closu of the week good
Mexican wooltd lambs were selling at
S.10.3; western woolcd lambs. $7.&t
$100, but appatently not wanted; handy,
v eight clipped lambs around $7 25. while,
heavy-weights, or the kind averaging
around 100 pounds, brought tl.0M6.8i.
This week the supply has been fairly
troderate, tho market on Monday being
about steady with reference to prices,
but dull and slow In trading. Tuesday
a considerable number of wooled lambs
uau io sen Jifii.-c lower at i7.Wjrs.10. due
no doubt to tho molaturo In the wool aa
a result of the rain. A string of Cali
fornia spring Iambs wero also on the
market, averaging 57 rounds nnd liine-
at W.00. Clipped wethers renrcsrnted
about the only sheep offered, these sell
lng at $3.00. while ewes would probably
bring about the same figure. Today's
market Is strong, with prices apparently
a little higher, as but 5.TO0 are on sale
here and only 1.000 at Chicago. We may
see some Improvement a little later on.
but do not figure that It will be very
extensive, ns there Is undoubtedly yet to
come a supply sufficient to fill all do

As we chronicle tho Important market
events which originated In Iowa. It Is
proper and benefitting that we mention
tne two-car shipment or cattle by T, M.
O'Connor of Harrison county. He had
the National Live Stock Commission com
pany do his selling and both prices and

tory acount of sale.
THREE SHIPMENTS IN TICREE
DAYS AND THREE GOOD SALES.
Edwin Anderson, manager of the Farm

county continues as a "headllner" In the
"National" ranks. He had shipments of
hogs here last Thursday, Friday and
Saturday, On three separate and dis
tinct ocaslons he reported very satisfac

"Two more from T. ft H."' Is all that
the chute man needed to announce In
order to let the hog salesmen know that
they were to sell two loads for Tessen
dorf ft Hassebrook. These big Platte
county buyers have "won out" in their
campaign for patronage and a big lot
of hogs coming to market are passing

Reynolds. He brought In two straight
loads of cattle and owned part ot a ship
ment of hogs sent to the National Live

Fred Schneider, the veteran shipper of

hogs. Both prices and weights were
more than he expected nnd he gave his
mrea men" credit for turning an antici
pated loss Into a profit. Mr. Schneider
Is a regular buyer who knows the busi
ness from A. to Z and he knows whereof
he speaks when It comes to the right

Another trio of the above firm's "gilt

"A PATRON OF EIGHTEEN YEARS'
STANDING" was registered at the "Na
tional" last Friday when the Hon. James
Gielg of Platte county was announced.
The firm has not had Its present name

ing any change. He brought In a load
or 237-pound hogs which sold within 2Vi
cents of the top.

CHICAGO GRAIN AND PROVISIONS

CHICAGO, May 1$. Absence of foreign
demand combined todav with bumper
crops ahead deprived wheat ot strength.
The close was weak, Tio to 1 cent under
last night. Corn finished He to Ho down
and oats off HS44o to He, but provisions
unchanged to 2oc higher.
Bears ruled wheat from the btarL The
break In prices was only checked through
extensive purchasing on the part of a
few big houses. Greatest weakness de
veloped after receipts of telegrams from
ine seaooara announcing mat in addi
tion to there being no export Inquiry
whatever resellers were active abroad at
two cents under the offers from here.
Rains In western Kansas were reported
today as having supplied sufficient mois
ture to carry the wheat crop to harvest.
Ideal weather elsewhere and splendid
crop prospects both foreign and domestic,
brought abbut selling pressure which In
creased notably In the last hour. Prim
ary receipts or wheat today were 3S5.000
bushels: last year 450.000 bushels. Ex-

CATTLE Cattle receipts continue ex
tremely small at this point, only ninety
eight cars being reported In. which, as
a matter of course, wa? not enough to
really make a verv good or Interesting
market For the three days this week
receipts foot up onlv 7,508 head, being
slightly over one-hnlf of the receipts for
the- corresponding period of last week
and smaller than a year ago by over 1,000
There was a good active demand this
morning for good to choice light year
lings, and hb high as $8.60 was paid for a
bunch of very choice cattle of that de
scription, part of them heifers. On the
other hand, heavy cattle were not so
active and were In many cases no more
than steady and In other cases possibly
a little stronger than yesterday. The
market as avwhole might be described as
steady to 10c higher.
uows ana neirers were in many cases
a little stronger than yesterday, the
market on that kind of stuff ranging
anywhere from strong to possibly lOo
There was some little Inoulry for stock
cattle and feeders, but tho market on
that kind ot stock does not show much

HOGS Receipts were fairly liberal this
morning, but the demand held up well,
and, as advices from other points Indi
cated higher figures, the local market
opened about a nickel above yesterday's
average. There waa a good speculative
and shipping demand again today, some
good lights selling as high as $8.30. The
bulk of the sales landed at $8.15'3R25, an
advance of Just about 5c. On "the whole,
trade was fairly active, Train's on one
road were delayed and had not been re
Ported In up till a late hour In the fore
noon, but all of the early arrivals had
been sold by 10 o'clock.
The day's supply totaled up about 151
cars, or 10,600 head, bringing the total
for the three days up to 31,756 head. This
Is nearly 6,000 larger than last week, and
more than 1.000 heavier than for the cor
responding days a year ago.
SHEEP There was a greatly Improved
feeling on the lamb markot this morning,
as trade commenced earlv and nrlroa
were regarded as steady to strong com-
iureu wun me general run or eaies on
both Tuesday and Monday. This took
place In spit of the fact that receipts
wer-i ftlrly largo for a Thursday and In
addition today's fresh supply were about
eight curs of Iambs held over from the
preceding day. Mexican, wooled lambs
seem to meet with Just aa much Inquiry
as the shorn grades and the consequence
was that tho bulk of the good offerings
moved freely and were all disposed of
at a seasonable hour Of course, any
thing showing too much weight or lack
ing In quality did not sell so readily,
but sold In the same notches as yester
day and the day before.
A range of $8.15(38.35 took most of the
wooiea oirenngs with three loads at the
latter figure, this being tho top for the
day as against $8.30 on Mnnrinv. Shnrn
offerings comprised a smaller proportion
of the receipts than of late and nothing
rainy cnoice or nanay weight was offered.
The majority of the best kinds moved
at figures largely anywhere from $6.63
As expected only a few ewes, whethers
and yearlings appeared at the yards,
which was nbt enough to Indicate any
material change In values. A two-car
shipment of very good clipped ewes was
weighed at $5.75.
For comparison the fresh receipts foot
up 22 cars ot 6,700 head as against 3,103
a week ago, 7,188 two weeks ago and 1,884
a year ago.

OMAHA, Mar 13, 1913.
At this particular time tho talent In
wheat, corn and oats refuse to permit
prollts to get away from them, owing
to the uncertain conditions surrounding
the vailous markets. The one word, "un
certain," may be applied not only to tho
oats and corn situation, but to the wheat
market as well. In oats there were per
sistent claims of crop damage In many
sections of the great belt yesterday, and
the news received on cofrn was of sev
eral kinds, nnd some of it was against
the bears. With tho exception of claims
of dry weather In many districts of the,
winter wheat belt, with a promise of
deterioration later on, tho outlook was
Just as rosy for an enormous yield ot
that grain as at any time during this
Speculation enjoyed more breadth yes
terday than In some days, because It
attracted the attention of traders at out
side markets, including St. Louis, and
one of the larger speculators there cov
ered quite a line of wheat In Chicago.
Whether there was a profit In thlB buy
ing or not It is unable to say.
The average "Yankoe" farmer has fully
mado up his mind that It la useless to
hold a big surplus ot wheat In his bins,
as was shown by the receipts at primary
markets yesterday, which exceeded one
million bushels, and which were double
of those a year ago. With the now crop
harvested and moving the receipts at pri
mary markets will doubtless break all
records, and It will be up to the world at
larj,e to take' care of this wheat as
rapidly as It Is sold by growers.
Tho cash wheat market at Chicago
was dull, but firm yesterday, with sales
of 65,000 bushels to Interior millers. There
wero no export sales reported by the sea
board, but Omaha sold 200,000 bushels ot
hard winter wheat to go to Minneapolis
millers. A northwestern man in speaking
of this sale said the Minneapolis millers
are badly In need of dry wheat for color
ing as well as to absorb the moisture In
the spring wheat. Cash wheat was K8c
The corn stocks continue to decrease.
The receipts are small and the shorts
aro the best buyers. Traders look for a
good swing In tho market and they
favor the long sldo on all setbacks. Cash
corn was unchanged.
The general trade In oats is good.
Shorts are the best buyers on unfavor
able crop advices from Illinois and In
diana. Cash oats were unchanged.
Clearances wero 8,000 bushels of corn,
1,000 bushels of oats and wheat and flour
equal to 946,000 bushels.
Primary wheat receipts were 383,000
bushels and shipments wero 941,000 bush
els, against receipts last year or 450,000
bushels and shipments of 398,000 bushels.
Primary corn receipts were 410,000 bush
els and shipments were S03.000 bushels,
against receipts last year of 755,000 bushels
and shipments ot 622,000 bushels.
Primary oats receipts wero 682,000 bush

against receipts last year or 4S6.000 bush
