Feb. 4. Cattlo Receipts, 550; shipments,
200. The marketing of cattle thus far this
week shows very little change compared
with the same time last week, and the re
ceipts to-day wcro nearly 1G0 larger than
a week tigo. The arrivals of sale cattle
were for the most part odd bunches, and
there were very few loads of attractive
quality. "With apparently only enough to
meet the immediate requirements of the
trade, the market opened with reasonably
active corwpetltion, and with a good at
tendance of buyers the trading was lively
at fully steady to strong prices compared
with those 'current for equal kinds last
Saturday. Occasionally there were In
stances where salesmen believed they ob
tained a little stronger values, and there
were also cases where there was some
doubt about prices being steady, but a
healthy condition was manifested and the
usual clearance was made at current prices.
Bteers averaging 1,273 to l.fio6 pounds sold at
15.636.23, with 922 to 1,213-pounds kinds at

Thus far this week the receipts of hogs
Indicate a decrease of over 2.i) compared
with the seme time last week, and the
receipts to-day were not quite an large as a
week ago. The market opened with all buy
em In the field, and there was a good de
mand for all kinds, but orders appeared
to be more urgent for llshter averages
than the heavy. A basis of prices for op
erations was agreed on early, and almot
from the start the trading was active and
continued so throughout the day. Under
the influence of strong competition values,
of course, were somewhat irregular, but
generally there was an advance of at h ast
6c In prices over yesterday, and those that
arrived later sold at strong to higher
prices compared with the opening. Tho
margin between prices of licht and heavy
hogs is growing I?s, and it sri-ms to be
the opinion of most dealers that tho time
Is not far away when the lighter grades
will sell higher than heavies. Such opin
ions are based on the fact that certain
kinds at XZ.'Jl'iC to-dav and heuvbr grades
at J5.2Cie.30 a short time ago were selling
n a basis of from $5.73 for th lighter
kind and $-5.30 for the heavies. The usual
Clearance was made at current prices.

Horses. Contrary to the rule following a
Fpt-cial sale, the receipts of hort-es are of
fairly liberal volume, about 200 head having
arrived for the regular sale of Wurman,
Mack. Chamberlain Sc Co. to-day. There
was al.-o a good variety of grades repre
sented, and the quality for the most part
was satisfactory. As usual at this time in
the year the good farm chunks and heavy
horses predominated In the arrivals, but
there was a fairly liberal sprinkling of
drivers and coach horses. Another unusual
feature of the market at this timo was a
good attendance of buyers, and an active
lemaiM from nearly all sources, which
resulted In a good clearance at as high
prices as equal kinds sold at any time last
week. Consignments were generally from
regular patrons of the market. In the har
ness horse line sales? were reported as high
as S.o., and heavy horses sold as high .as
$175, but the bulk of the supply of all kinds
sold at $75? 125 per head. There seems to be
a healthy feeling prevailing in the market.

NEW YORK. Feb. 4. There was an at
tempt on the part of an element of profes
sional operators to awaken some specu
lative Interest In the market this morning,
but the general disposition was to acqui
esce in dullness and neglect after yester
day's disappointment of the expectation
of a decision In the Northern Securities
case. It is the general opinion of the
financial district that any pronounced ac
tivity must await the delayed decision in
this case or some striking new develop
ment In general conditions. The profes
sional element which attempted to contest
this obvious tendency this morning was
making modest progress when the an
nouncement came of engagements of gold
for export on Thursday to the amount of
$2,730,000. The market then immediately
flattened out, the greater part of the gains
being lost, and was neglected and lethargic
for the rest of tho day. The day s small
business was largely congested In Amalga
mated Copper, Southern Pacific, Sugar and
Metropolitan Street Hallway. The dealings
otherwise, even, In the transcontinental and
Pacific railroads and in United States
Steel, were of quite insignificant propor
tions. Amalgamated Copper was weak on
the sharp break In the London copper mar
ket and on the first reaction for copper in
the local metal market since the market
turned upward. The strength of Sugar
was based on the recent stock argument
of a- probable remission of Cuban sugar
duties. The operations in Southern Pacitic
wore largely in the hands of the specula
tive pool in the stock. Metropolitan Street
Kailway recovered sharply from yester
day's depression on the assurance from W
C. Whitney that his coming retirement
from business would not involve the liqui
dation of his holdings. There were some
wlJ movements among less prominent
stocks. Lackawanna rose 3',4 points higher
than yesterday's high point, but reacted 4
points to LhJ5. Nashville, Chattanooga & St.
Louis advanced points on light trans
actions and without explanation. The Min
neapolis, St. Paul &. Sault Ste. Marie btocks
rose 4 and C, respectively, tor the common
and preferred, but saved net gains of only
2V4 and 2'i. American Express and United
States Kxpress made sharp gains. The en
gagements of gold for export had only a
slightly hardening influence on the money
market, but the doubt as to the extent to
which the movement may reach caused
some uneasiness over the outlook. It is
believed that last week's large loan expan
sion represented the shifting of obligations
due to foreign creditors to the local banks
and that the gold out-go i3 in payment of
loans. The declaration of a 20 per cent,
dividend on Standard Oil, the tame as for
the first quarter of last year and the year
before, was regarded as of some sig
nificance, as it was feared that the recent
fall in the price of oil would lead to a re
duction of the dividend. The market closed
dull and heavy, the tone being somewhat
accentuated by the report of the rejection
of peace overtures by the British govern
ment. Business In bonds was quite well dis
tributed. Total sales, at par value, were
JS.KJU.oi'O. United States old fours advanced
H on the last call.
Following are the day's sharo sales and
the recorded price changes:

Our Foolish Financial System.
New York Financier.
The circulation of the national banks Is
declining steadily, and treasury reports are
to the effect that advance applications for
retirement of circulation during March
have risen to $1,500,000, or half the legal
limit allowed in any one month. This limit
has been reached for November, December,
January and February, with the chances
that March will be added to the list. The
bond-secured circulation stood at $C23,S43,067
In September last. The opinion is held in
conservative circles that the amount will
not exceed $317,000,000 at the close of March.
This decrease cannot continue without
causing some embarrassment in the future.
As long as excess revenue accumulates in
the treasury it will be necessary to ion
tlnue bond purchases, if the surplus is tft be
kept in use, but as long as bonds are pur
chased at high figures, national bank cir
culatlor will decline, because of the incen
tive Reid out to banks to sell bonds at
high prices. The purchases of unmatured
bonds by the government since July 1 have
amounted to $47,714,870, and have called for
disbursements amounting to $GO,i.2,7S5. It
is plain, therefore, that had it not been for
bond disbursements the present cash bal
ance of about $174.000.000 would have been
approximately $235.000.0(X). But despite
extraordinary bond purchases, the surplus,
counting as such receipts over ordinary
expenditures, continues to grow and is
now mounting toward $30.000,(o0, as the re
sult of operations since July 1.
This condition of affairs calls for prompt
treatment, and the question whether it is
better to cripple the national bank circula
tion by destroying its basis through bond
purchases, or whether it is not more pru
dent to reduce taxation and prevent sur
plus accumulation should bo decided with
Pensions for Veterans.

Oh, my brother, are you weary?
Does the way seem long and dreary

Yet be brave and strive to borrow
From the glery of the morrow
That beyond your vision gleams.
"Never?" Ceas the wall of "never,
For tho race moves on rorever
Up the highway of endeavor
To the heights that onward plow.
There Is no room for despairing,
Rut for action and for daring.
And for helping and upbearing

There are lives that we may brighten;

There are wounded hearts to bind;

CHICAGO, Feb. 4. Trade in the grain
pits had an oft! d;y to-day. All told, It was
a cold-weather n?arket, holding up well at
thi opening on fears of serious results from
the severe weather, but sliding off as the
pits turned bearish once more. May wheat
closed with a net loss of USc, corn vsc
and oats UQUc Provisions closed up
Corn again attracted the most attention
on the floor, although trade was not large.
Early buying on the cold-weather reports,
especially by the Southwest and some of
the local crowd for investment, occasioned
a fair advance. There was some bullish
news from Kansas City, and cables were
strong, though Liverpool reported a dull
market. Receipts were small. May opened
with good strength and sold up to GlUc
but selling by locals and predictions of
moderating weather broke the market to
ward the end of the session. May sold
down to Collide. This revival, however,
was not long lived and May closed easy,

Wheat had rather a dull day. The change
in prices was limited to The cold
weather, while having an independent bull
ish offset in this pit, influenced strength
more by its Indirect effect through corn.
The early sentiment was bullish on corn,
but later wheat turned independent on
bearish seutlment. The local crowd sold
and prices declined. Receipts, both local
and Northwestern, were small, and the
world's visible supply was decreased. On
these influences May started VsC up, at
7s'8c, and sold up a shaue. When the sen
timent turned the market held very well,
considering the selling pressure, and May
closed easy, U&c lower, at 7r1V37!1,4c.
Local receipts were only twenty-two cars,
two of contract grade. Minneapolis and
Duluth reported 2fcu, a total of 30, against
472 last week and 313 a year ago. Primary
receipts were 401,000 bu, against 444.0uO a
year ago. Seaboard clearances in wheat
and flour equaled 4US,0oi) bu. The seaboard
reported eight loads taken for export.
Oats were again dull and prices fluctu
ated, in sympathy with corn, over a narrow
range. Country offerings were nil. May
sold over a range of ?8c and closed steady,

There was a demand for pork at the

BOSTON, Feb. 4. The wool market here pre
sented new features this week. Tha demand
Is moderate, while values are held on a very
firm basis. Manufacturers are taking a fair
amount of wool from time to time at full
prices, but there Is an absence of speculative
feeling. Owing to the heavy sales of wool last
fall, together with the steady picking up of
good lots, there la considerable shrinkage In the
available surply of good tenitory wools, and
a buyer now has a poorer chane from which
to make his selections. Values hold firm, about
4243c clean being a fair basis for fin medium
wools, the latter for good lots. Medium terri
tory wools are quoted at 28'a40c, with choice
lines at 42c. Fleece wools are firm, with sales
of Ohio washed delaine at 2io. and choice XX
and above Ohio at 212c. No. 1 fleeces ars firm
at 22o72CKe, with buyers holding for 27c.
