presses the Market
Grain-values were on the downturn at
the close of Saturday's short session. Pro
fessional operators were willing enough to
Inaugurate a bull campaign. If some one'
else would supply tho sinews of war, but
outsiders scented manipulation. The open
ing was fairly strong; on higher cables
and reports that seeding- In the nortltwest
was being delayed by unfavorable' weath
er. In the last hour there was brisk. liqui
dation by disappointed longs.
Corn, though somewhat stronger than
wheat, was on the downturn, despite light
reoeipta and unfavorable weather. .Many
traders believe, that conditions are shaping
themselves, for a slump in wheat and a.
bull movement in corn.

Native Supply Liberal Beef Cattle
Easy Sheep Were Dull.
NATTVB CATTLB-The receipts In the native
division were libsral Tor the last day of the
week. There were close to 850 head receUed,
but as 27 loads were through exports and seme
direct, thre were only -9 loads that were for
tale. Tbe demand was very light and the mar
ket ruled on a very weak basis, and even with
so few on offer could hardly be quoted steady,
with sales looking about 10c lower than the pre
vailing basis Friday.
Following Is a list of quotation, based upon
sales during the week:

SOUTHERN CATTLE As nothing was re
ceived In the Southern alleys as a basis on
which to quote the market, the condition of tho
trade Friday furnished the actual close for the
week. Ths supply has been but little different
from the last two weeks, and. with supplies
at th. principal markets showing a decrease a
better tone has applied to the trade The
good steers selling st J1.20 sad above' have
shown an advance of logiijc. while the fea-
jure 01 ui. wo bu Dea in. strength 0f the
light-weight steers of common to medium flesh
tnese selling readily at' 20625c higher than the
current prices one week ujo. Th wanner
weather and ths. scarcity of l.ght-welght steers
have been responalble for tlila.
The bull market has had a very gocd tone on
good to chotce bulls which sold at J3.1063.4O but
the common to fair bulls are a shade lower.

SHEEP The usual Saturday quietness pre
vailed tn the sheep department, the entire re
ceipts being shipped In by local slaughterers, so
ttst there was nothing on sale. The week closes
en a little better basts than a week ago, as
there seems to be a better feeling. and the de
mand Is larger, especially for good stock, sheep
and lambe both are wanted far In excess of
the supply.
So far this week sales lncieuded spring Iamb

HORSES There v.as nothing new In the
horse situation Saturday. As usual on the last
day of the ueek. offerings were srnrce and lit
tle business of any kind wss transacted. Trad
ers spent the day In pri'parlns for the busltie-.
of any kind in preparing for the butlnes of
the ensuing week. The closing was firm. In
line with the Improved feeling noted In the
market during the week. Prices hae been
about loflfio higher than the previous week, and
practically regained all of the decline reported
during the two weeks preceding.

were practically no offerings on the commission
market an.l. consequently, no lncentie for uc
tlity. if the. demand were no li;oe,!. while
on tho other hand hardly any buyers from
outside mtukets were on hand and the" deal
ers itceive.1 verv few Inquiries. The market
l.as betn favorable this week and sellers hae
had a herd time disposing of consignments.
Tit? tone of the trade lies been weak, and In
most cases commission men have been forced
to accept easier prices In ordtr to make sales.
