Stock Market. Stock Yards, Kanxas City Mo., June 8th, 11)00. Cattle receipts have Wen evenly distributed Jill through this week, as shippers had been advised against shipping, in view of the packing house agitation now going on, and the run of 32, 000 arrived in a timid, hesitating manner. Packers were bearish Monday, and some concession were required before trades were made, but small gains have been made each day since, including a sharp advance of 10 cents today, owing to extreme scarcity of desirable beef stc-en. Packers have gained courage all week, and the recent controversy is not hurting the fresh meat tradejas much us fear ed, but its bad influence on foreign trade, particularly in canned meats, will )ikelv be felt severely. Al though the receipts this week are 2000 head more than last week, the market has more than regained the loss of last week, and condi . ..1 1 1 Hons at me cuwe 01 me ween are i decidedly better than at the close of last week.

Country de mand for Btockers and feeders was strong first of the week, and prices a shade higher, at $3.50 to $4.00, mostly, but the week is closing dull on this class. Muttons and goats from Texas and New Mexico make up the bulk of the arrivals in the tdieep barns, although supply of Natives of all descriptions is increasing.

At the time of the arreft they were engaged in a drunken quarrel at the woman's hou-ie on the hill east of Nel-on Avenue. The timely arrival of the officer probably saved aKerious tragedy, as the woman was armed with a short and very ugly looking butcher knife, one of tin; men had a long miner's candlestick (a very dangerous weapon) and another one of the men had a pocket knife, which he was brandishing and threatening to ut-e. The oflicer quelled the disturbance and lodged the entire party in jail. Taken before the justice they plead guilty to charges of drunk and disorderly conduct, and the woman was given a sentence of five days; while the men were sentenced to ten days each in the county jail, in lieu of fines of $5 and $10. wmmmmmwmmmwm TO COLORADO VIA COOLEST and SHORTEST WHY to ALL Golorado Points acs well as to ALL Points North and East Special Round Trip Rates All I Summer THE The Shortest Way to Colorado HARVEY Serves the Meals The Deadly Candlestick.
