Cash cprn, lc to 2c lower.
The domestic and foreign news over
the week-end presented nothing out of
the ordinary, a we term ‘'ordinary”
these days; and there was no special rea
son for unusual activity, but the market
has attained a momentum which, after
all, is as serviceable as anything else
because activity is itself the best at
traction and helps to center public at
tention on the merits or demerits of the
market.
The weak point In our structure at ibis
time is the uncertainty that prevails in
various branches of trade, and today's
action of Central Leather tended to em
phasise this point: but those who look
beneath the surface realize fully that
trade depression at th;s time is not the
result of overprodu -tion. which is usually
the cause, hut it is due to a lack of
confidence in the price, and, therefore,
when a satisfactory level has been agreed
up by buyer and seller, the world's
s. nrr.-'tr** will attain play a big part in
stimulating business.
m ihe meantime several branches of
the market arc strong, independent of
all other conditions, the oils because of
a constantly increasing world demand for
oil at high prices and the rails be
cause they are still at a level that is
consistent only with poverty and dis
tress.
anticipate a continuation of the
demand for these various groups and
in time a betterment in general business
conditions, which will help the general
Industrial list.

An unusual number of orders from
esatern shipers, a reflection of strong sen
timent from outside markets and a fairly
light supply caused an advance of 10®25c
in prices at the opening of the hog mar
ket today. .oo-
Light hogs a reached a top of $18.2,*,
and the bulk of the good hogs sold at
slß® 18.25. o
Good mixed hogs brought sl߮lS.lo,
and good heavies $17.45® 18, with but very
few selling under $17325.
Roughs were 25c higher than on the
closing dav of the last week's market
at sl6 25. and best light pigs were fully
25c lower than the prices of the Satur
day market at $17.50 and down.
The bulk of the sales ran $17.85® 18.1,*,
Receipts for the day approximated
6.000, but indications late in the fore
noon were that there would not be a
good clearance for the day.
The Saturday clearance approximated
within 600 of the total receipts.
Practically all of the sales were made
to eastern shippers, as local packers were
not active in the market.
Kingau & Cos., usually the biggest
buyer of tbe local packers, were not In
the matket at all.
At the opening of the market a side
range of prices was established in the
cattle market on acount of the number
and variety of grades that were offeerd
for sale.
Prices ranged from steady on good
grades to 25c to Sot‘ loner on poorer
grades, which were the prevailing grades.
Receipts were fairly large for the
opening of .the week at approximately
2.000.
At the best the market could be said
to be dull.
Good steers were steady, but the poorer
grades were lower; good cows and heifers
were fairly steady, what few there were
on the market, and the eanners held
firm.
With the dull trade that prevailed and
the lower prices on the poorer grades,
commission men said that minty of the
cattle would tie held over for tomor
row and probably even longer, unless
there were some indications of better
prices.
With a poor grade of calves on the
market prioes -were steady on the few
good calves for sale, to $1 on the me
dium and common grades.
Receipts for the day appproxlmated
750.
With 300 sheep and lambs on tbe mar
ket, sheep were steady and lambs were
50c to *l. with n sl3 top.
Sheep prices ranged at $5(546.

Terse Market Notes
NEW YORK, Sept. 20.-^According to
reports here the anthracite coal strike
in the Pennsylvania fields has been
called off. except in one district, and
general operations were resumed today.
The Federal Reserve bank ratio is un
changed at 39.5 per cent.
The weekly statement of the Federal
Reserve board shows banks’ ratio has
increased from 42.8 to 43.8 per cent.
According to the report of the Depart
ment. of Labor, employment in fourteen
of the largest industries decreased large
ly during the month of August. ,Tbe
largest decrease among the industries is
that of the automobile industry, where
there was a decrease of 10.8 per cent.
Reports from over the entire country,
however, show that the labor thus re
leased was quickly absorbed by other
Industries,
A statement In the Railway Age says
that more freight was handled by the
roads during the month of August than
ill any other four weeks of the preseut
year.
STATE CROP SUMMARY.
Considerable plowing was done by the
farmers over the state during last week,
the soil generally being in good condi
tion. Other outdoor work advanced rap
idly.
With favorable weather conditions pre
vailing during the week lust passed,
there is now about 25 per Cent of the corn
crop out of the way of frosts. Considerable
cutting and some silo filling lias been
done.
Because of the exceptionally favorable
conditions, some wheat and rye was sown
in the northern part of the state, but
most farmers are waiting for the fly-free
dates.
Where cars are obtainable, the move
meat of oats to the market Is quite ex
tensive.
Recent rains have given young clover
seed impetus and in nearly all section*
It is in splendid condition. Clover and
bulling Is going on now at a rapid rate
with yields very irregular, but a much
larger crop will be harvested this year
than last.
The peach crop is practically gone in
this state. Apple picking and eider mak
ing Is eommeiu-ing in some seetlon* now.
Pastures are good in some localities,
but very poor in others.
The epidemic of hog cholera is still bad
111 some of the eastern counties of the
state. All other stock is In splendid con
dition of health.
According to reports, the labor supply,
in most sections of the state, is equal to
the demand at the present time.
On Commission Row
The (one of trading on the wholesale
produce market at the opening of the
market today was about the usual tone
of,an opening day market.
However, all indications point to much
better trade this week, due in part to
the extra thousands drawn here by the
G. A. it. convention who will have to be
fed.

RALLY AT CLOSE
March Wheat Regains Loss—
Corn Still Down.
CHICAGO, Sept. 20.—After opening
weak on large receipts and under gen
eral selling pressure, grain quotations
on the Chicago Board of Trade rallied
at the close today.
Corn was especially weak at the open
ing. due to the continued warm weather
and other favorable crop contdtions.
Wheat followed the corn market.
Provisions held steady through the ses
sion.
December wheat, after dropping 294 c
at the opening of $2.38, regained 2c at
the close.
March wheat was off 2c at the opening,
$2.33, but closed up l%c.
September corn, off 394 c at the open
ing, $1.22, rallied 294 c at the close.
December corn, opening at $1.07, was
off 194 c, but regained lc later.
At 58%c, September oats were off 194 c
from Saturday’s close at the opening, and
U*s an additional 194 c at the close.
December oats, opening at 62c, were off
%e, and closed an additional l%c lower.

—Sept. 20-
Wheat—There Is some interchange of
cash wheat between Eastern and Western
holders, probably in the way of comple
tion of old export sales, as new foreign
demand is reported slow. Cash market
shown considerable strength under a de
mand from interior miller and because
the receipts are abnormally small. Pre
miums for some grades have been ad
vanced from 1 to 3 cents. No. 1 red
selling at 16 to It) over December. No. 1
hard 12 to 14 over. Bids to the country
for fifteen days' shipment are only
over December. Undertone of this mar
ket is strong, gathered largely from re
fusal of tbe country to accept prevailing
prices instead from abroad demand. Re
tention of surplus by farmers Is expect
ed to build up a bearish situation at
some unknown time in the future.
Corn -Existing weather, forecast and
heavy receipts precipitated very general
selling in corn. Previous sellers accepted
this opportunity to take profits. The
cash situation is anything but strong.
Current receipts are being taken by elc
vators for the purpose of building up
accumulations here and probably with
contemplation of delivery on September
contracts. In the early market there
were no bids whatever for corn to ar
rive form the country. During the day,
bids of four under September for five
day* shipment and eight over December
for fifteen days shipment were made,
it Is not possible to point to any im
provement In the demand from eastern
distributors, sales reported today being
only 40.000. The market ts entitled to
a steadiness, or possibly some rally
particularly In the event of unfavorable
eeather, but the willingness of the coun
try to sell the old corn and the practical
assurance that an enormous crop will be
matured do not warrant the idea of au
advance
t*at* It is constant! v reported that
the country is a very reluctant seller of
oat*. None the less, the visible supply
lucrense* Ilberslly each week The stocks
in Chicago alone arc s% million The
;< tal visible Is (bout the same ns a v*ar
ugo. Distributing demand Is negllble
Uaah interests are bidding only Septem
ber price to 1 over for ninety days'
shipment from the country. Market re
sists pressure of Its relative cheapness
but there Is very little interest dis
played on the Investment side.
Provision* A good cash trade in hog
Products is reported and hogs continue
strong. Packers are buyers of the nearby
deliveries at times, but beyond this the
market Is neglected. Cash Interests ar.
frtendly but the Investing public seem*
uninterested.

PACKERS’ PLAN
MAY MEET KICK
Holding Corporation Doesn’t
Face Sweeping Approval.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 20—Assistant
Attorney General Galloway today an
nounced that no decision by the Depart
ment of .1 uslice would be made regard
ing the dissolution plan submitted by
the big packers until the packers have
tiled their amendments and the govern
ment's objections are framed.
The packers must submit any amend
ments they wish to offer to thetr orlgl
na! plan filed some weeks ago In the
District Supreme Court by tomorrow.
It is understood tbe packers’ plan for
the formation of a holding corporation,
beaded by F. 11. Prince & Cos. of Bos
ton to take over the public stock mar
ket holdings does not fully meet the
approval of the Department of Justice.
Attorney Geueral Palmer, It Is under
stood, has Indicted to counsel for the
pickers that the plan as outlined is not
responsive to the court's recent decree
ordering the disposal of all the packers’
unrelated lines.
The Government, it Is said, is ready
to Insist that the packers divest them
selves of their unrelated holdings abso
lutely without retention of control
through secret stock-holding devices.
PRICE OF LIBERTY
BONDS MAY GO UP
Secretary Houston Hopes to
Decrease Market Supply.
WASHINGTON, Sept. ** -Secretary
Houston <f the Treasury Department
hope* to see the Government buy In up
wards of $200,000,000 worth of liberty
bonds during the current fiscal year,
which ends next June 30.
How far the Government will be able to
go toward realization of this hope is as
yet tim-ertaln because the amount of rev
enue and expenditures cannot yet bs
forecast.
The realization would have been prac
tically certain, according to Houston,
ts the amount which is to be paid to the
railroads under guarantee provisions of
the transportation act had not run be
yond all estimates.
The Treasury Is able to buy bonds be
cause of a sinking fund provision which
was part of the victory loan bill.
Under this bill a fixed amount of ap
proximately $250,009,000 a year is appro

GOMPERS OPENS
LABOR MEETINGS
Carpenters and Joiners Here
for General Sessions.
In his address today at the opening
session of the twentieth general con
vention of the United Brotherhood of
Carpenters and Joiners of America, at
the Athenaeum. Samuel Gompers, presi
dent of the American Federation of La
bor, touched first upon the early his
tory of the organization, and said that
he felt it his duty as well as a privilege
to say to the younger men in the trade
labor movement not to imagine for a
moment that that which had been accom
plished for the carpenters of America
had been handed to them on a silver
platter.
He said that he remembered the time
when the skilled carpenter received $1.75
for a day’s work of ten or eleven hours
and then he touched upon the fight for
an eight-hour day that had been con
ducted by the carpenters.
He spoke of the position of strength,
Influence and power for good that was
enjoyed by the carpenters, hut added
that they were not “out of the woods”
yet; that the enemy that wishes to
crush labor does not declare- so in so
many words but makes a pretense of
having sympathy for the working
people.
He said that the method of such an
enemy is to strike a blow at the or
ganized labor movement and If that
could succeed to reach at the throat of
every worker.
The organized labor movement, he said,
had accomplished many things of advan
tage, not only to members of organized
labor, bsst to all wage earners.
Here and there, he said, there had been
attempts to reduce wages, and added that
reduction of wages was no way out of
industrial difficulty and that labor would
resist such reductions.
He spoke of the work done by labor
during the war and of sacrifices made by
It, and touched alao upon the Civil War
and of the presence In the city of Civil
War veterans.
Black slavery had been abolished, he
said, but now there seems to he a ten
dency to enforce slavery among whites.
URGES MEMBERS TO
DEMAND UNION LABEL.
The Importance of asking for articles
bearing the union label was emphasized
in his talk at the morning session by
John Manning of Washington, secretary
of tbe label trades’ department of the
American Federation of Labor.
Along this line, he pointed out the
power in the bands of the women of the
homes, who do so much of the pur
chasing.
The remainder of the morning session
was occupied in reading the report of
the credentials committee.
The program for this afternoon's ses
sion Included the reports of officers, the
general executive board and the board of
trustees.
In his report, William L. Hutcheson,
president of the United Brotherhood of
Carpenters snd Joiners of America, said
that “on Aug. 12, 1881, there assembled
In the city of Chicago delegates for tbe
purpose of convening in session the first
general convention of the United Brother
hood of Carpenters and Joiners of Amer
ica. who represented twelve local unions,
with a combined membership of 2,042
members.
“Today those of us wh oare assembled
here represent on organization of 2,505
local unions, with a membership of 400,-
104 members.”
He touched, in his report, upon the
War l*abor board, and said that "it is
not because the undersigned had the
honor of being s member of that board
that he feels that the work accomplished
by that body was of great benefit not
only to members o four organization, but
to the workers of the country, but be
cause tbe records will show that in th
cases that were brought before the board
for consideration, fair and Impartial
hearings were given and that tile find
ing* made in the majority of cases were
tavorable to the workers.”
Various features of the work of the
brotherhood were touched upon ia the
report.
It is expected that the convention will
be In session about ten days or two
weeks.
