UNION STOCKYARDS. INDIANAPOLIS.
March 2s. Cattle Receipts. 1,100; ship
mcnte, C00. The marketing of cattle con
tinues comparatively liberal, the receipts
thus far this week showing a gain of over
tXO compared with the same time last week
and 1,3.) over the corresponding time a
year ago. The receipts to-day were fairly
liberal, Indicating a little Improvement over
a week ago and an increase of about 250
over a jear ago. The quality generally
was equal to the average heretofore this
week, and there were a few strictly top
klnd3 represented, especially among the
female cattle. The proportion of choice
fat stock was not large, and with a steady
demand for that class salesmen succeeded
In maintaining fully steady prices com
pared with yesterday. Medium grades of
cattle, however, were more difficult to sell
and generally considered weaker, and com
mon stock, no doubt, was lower. The de
mand for fleshy feeders of good quality was
steady at former prices, but the ordinary
stockers moved very slowly and prices
were unsatisfactory compared wdth those
prevailing a short time ago. At a late
hour practically all of the choice stock had
been sold. Quotations:

Hogs Receipts, 5,000; shipments, 000.
Combined receipts of hogs for five days
show an Increase of over 1,000 compared
with the same time lasr week and a de
crease of over 4,0u0 compared with the cor
responding time a year ago. The receipts
to-day were the largest of the week thus
far, and show a little improvement over
last Friday, but were not quite as large as
a year ago. There were not many strictly
top heavy hogs represented, but the qual
ity for an average compared favorably with
yesterday. The market opened with rather
active competition for th good weinht hogs
of good quality, and higher prices than
yesterday were realized for that class.
There were very few shipping ordrs for
the lighter grades, however, and with lim
ited competition packers, of course, were
Inclined to hold prices down, and not a
few salesmen claimed they were unable to
get any advantage over yesterday. Re
luctance In accepting prices offered caused
a very quiet market toward the close. Sales
ranged from $6.30 to Jo.CO, and a small part
of the supply sold below JS.50. Quotations:
Good to choice medium and heavy.? j.70760

Common to fair light weights 6.3036.40
Common to good pigs 5.40f7 6.40
Sheep Receipts. 400; shipments, 20ft. Thus
far this week the receipts of sheep and
lambs exhibit a decrease of over 500 com
pared with the same time last week and
an increase of about 6"0 over the corre
sponding time a year ago The receipts to
day were 230 larger than a week ago and
over S) larger than a year ago. The sup
ply was large enough to Invite all buyers
into the market, and with rather a better
demand than heretofore this week there
was more animation In . the bidding, and
sales were usually at more satisfactory
prices than yesterday. It appears from
representative sales that sheep showed
more strength than lambs. Rather active
competition developed between shippers
and local butchers, and the result was an
early clearance at opening prices. Lambs
sold as high as $i.50; other sales ranged
from 54.75 to $6.25, and culls to best sheep
sold from 52.50 to 55.50, with bucks at 53.50?j5

APOLIS, March 23. Cattle Receipts, 50;
shipments none. The supply was made up
of- butcher stock and veals of only fair
quality. Sales were promptly recorded, the
offerings going to local dealers. Prices
ruled steady on all kinds at yesterday's
quotations. The strongest call is for fat
cows and heifers, the fair to choice grades
ranging from 51.30 to 53.25. Good veal calves
sell generally around l?, but something
fancy sells as high as 57. The market
closed quiet at quotations:

Business was active, all buyers taking part.
The quality was very fair. Choice heavy
hogs went to $7. Henry Stewart, of Frank

876 Dounds that sold at that figure. One
load of 204-pound selected heavies sold at
5G.W. Light hogs, averaging 17:) pounds,

NEW YORK, March 2?. The revised con
stitution of the New York Stock Exchange,
which was posted a week ago, has now
been before the members the required
ler.gth of time, and, as no opposition has

The most important change In the consti
tution 13 that in regard to quotations of
those stocks of a par value of over $10,
which have heretofore been quoted in dol
lars. These stocks hereafter will be quoted
in percentages. Stocks of the par value of

RAIN ON THE STREETS
IT INTERFERES SOMEWHAT WITH
LOCAL WHOLESALE TRADE.
Commission Merchants, However,
Have a Very Good Day Increased
Green Stuff Receipts.
Rain Interfered somewhat with trade yes
terday, but It being Friday it was a busy
day on Commission row. Retail merchants
were stocking up for Saturay's trade, and
the market men as well. Receipts of green
stuff, including vegetables, were quite large
and prices have declined to such figures
that the consumption is largely increased.
In the fruit line prices are still very strong.
A few apples arc selling, but dried fruits
and canned goods are taking the place of
apples largely. The higher price of oranges
docs not increase the price at retail, as
merchants have been making a good profit
on this Una of fruit. Bananas are in good
supply and prices are steady. Strawberries
are coming in from the Suth quite freely,
but still are selling at luxury prices and will
rule high until fruit of nearer growth Is on
tjie market. Irish potatoes still rule high.
Receipts have not increased to the extent
expected with the coming of mild weather,
but prices are not as firm as a week ago.
Provisions aro in good request, especially
hams and smoked meats. It being so near
the close of the week the dry goods houses
were not so busy as on preceding days.
Leather and hides are the only exceptions
to a good trade report. Both are dull, and
prices on hides are weak at the present low
quotations. The produce market Is an active
one. Receipts of eggs are large and prices
are weak; still, with the large receipts, con
sumption Is so increasing that there is but
little accumulation of stocks. Choice but
ter is in good request, with receipts about
equal to the demand. Poultry Is a fast sell
er, if choice. Receipts are light, as com
pared with former years and this enables
dealers to hold prices rirm; but In the three
lines lower prices next week will not be a
surprise. Seed merchants are very busy and
prices in all lines, with the active demand,
are steady and firm. There is nothing new
to note in other lines.
It being Good Friday the Journal is with
out Its usual grain quotations. On the wag
on market much the same conditions pre
vailed as on Thursday, with prices ranging

with a new dally production of 3,510 bar
rels, or an average per well per day of lSli
barrels. There were thirty-six failures to
find oil, but most of these proved gas pro
ducers. This is an increase in completed
wells over the February repoit of sixteen,
and in new production there is the phe
nomenal increase of 100 barrels. In failures
there arc only two more. There is also a
notable Increase in the new work under
way. There are nine more drilling wells,
and thirteen more rigs up at the close of
business for the present month than there
were at the close of February. There are
19S wells drilling and eighty-three rigs.
The production of oil in the Indiana field
is gradually Increasing, and the pipe-line
reports for March, when published, will
show a dally average of close to 10.000 bar
rels. This is half as much oil as the Ohio
oil field produces from more than double
the number of wells. It Is predicted by
well-informed oil men that the Indiana
field wouLd be producing equally as much
of the crude product as Is northwestern
Ohio were it not for the stringent gas
One of the best wells in the Trenton rock
field at the present time is No. 11, on the
Studebaker farm in Blue Creek township,
Adams county, as the latest report from
It is that It Is doinif close to UJ0 barrels a
day. The pool to the northeast of Muncle
In Delaware and Randolph counties is at
tracting considerable attention, and many
new locations for wells have been made
there. Hartford City In al?o enjoying re
newed activity, and a few dry holes does
not frighten the trade to any great ex
tent, but they are pushing the drill. At
Elwood town lots are in demand since oil
has leen found there In paying quantities,
but It Is hoped that the pool will not de
velop into one similar to the one at Peru
a few years ago.
The greatest activity is centered at Van
Peiren and Marion, in Grant county. There
are eighty-two wells drilling in that coun
ty alone, and it is ad active a? any of the
Ohio oil counties. The following tables
show the work for March, as compared
with that of February:
