Demand throughout tho morning for all
weights up to 250 pounds was persistent,
with packers and shippers both on the
bidding end, the shippers being some
what encouraged by the acceptance by
the Big Four of shipments to Cleveland,
the other embargoes being maintained.
Strength was shown at the start, with
tho bulk of the sales at sl6. though a
few selected lights, consisting of very
fancy Hampshire stock, brought $16.25.
For weights between 250 and 300
