April 3.—Cattle—There were
animals of quality on sale
today, most of ilie light run being
made up of poor butcher stuff. Yes
terday's better tone prevailed and
prices closed nominally strong.
It is expected that the recent break
will check the movement and insure
lighter receipts next week. The trou
ble tills week has been that too many
people have tried to take down the
high prices of last week, only to litul
tlieni elusive. It is such rushes that
invariably demoralize a high level mar
ket. The feat of preventing further
slumps is up to the shipper. The visr
ible supply of -cattle for the next sixty
days is not excessive and ought, at
least, to hold the market where it Is
marketed conservatively, but the pur
chasing capacity of the meat eating

commercial conditions were radically

The March average weight of hogs
received at Chicago was 212 lbs., the
same as In February. In March, 1907,
the average was 22S lbs.
Altho provision stocks are much
heavier than a year ago, the fact must
not be overlooked that the accumula
tion was then light, the crop having
been held back to nurse the market.
Conditions this year have been re*
versed and the pack was put up earlier.
Sheep were steady on light trading.
More sheep have been sent in this
week than for a month past for the
reason that they were selling unus
ually high. This lias caused a sharp
drop in values, $6.60 being about the
limit for the choicest shorn wethers
under present conditions. The ^heep
deal has been hurt, because exporters
have cleaned up their steamer space
and are no longer forced to buy re
gardless of price to fill It.
The average weight of sheep re
ceived at Chicago last week was S6

March, 190".

Alleged Jugglery in Elevators Offered
as Plea for Inauguration of Inspec­
tion System—Witness Calls Trading
a Pawnbroker's Game—Gambling the
Life of Trade.
Washington, April 3.—S. If. Oreole.V,
a. commission merchant, of Chicago,
who says that he has been for twenty
seven years a member of the. board
of trade of Chicago, gave 'the, sc.nute
committee on agriculture an hour of
the liveliest kind of testimony iri favor
of the McCuni'ber grain inspection
Mr. Greeley is at the head of a con
tingent of formers who came to favor
the adoption of the Aid'umber meas
ure on the ground that slate inspec
tion and every other system ol' in
spection of grain heretofore tried has
been a failure.
The remarks of Mr. Greeley made
considerable impression on the mem
bers of the agricultural committee, and
he was constantly interrupted and
asked to explain many phases of grain
dealing as carried on in Chicago.
Mr. Greeley asserted that the pub
lic warehouse receipts of the city of
'liicago are a joke, ami that
places any reliance upon them when
purchasing grain.
He maintained that three-fourths of
the grain storage capacity of Chicago
is under the control of six linns, and
named the following:
Peave.v Grain company. Central Ele
vator company. Calumet company,
South Chicago Elevatvr company. Ar
mour Grain company and Kosenbaum
Grain company.
Six Men "Own"' Chicago Trade
"Tills crowd has managed to get
control of the entire public elevator
service of Chicago," said Mr. Greeley,
"and they are manipulating this ad
vantage for their own gain, and not in
the interest of th? public."
He then proceeded to explain the
system. Which' he termed showed up
the 'inefficiency of state grain inspec
tion, and which gave to the farmer
the smallest price tht could possibly
be given him for his grain.
This system, lie said, consisted of a
series of deferred deliveries, and the
doctoring of grain shipments in such
a manner that when the persons .pur
chasing grain for future delivery came
to inspect their purchases at delivery
(time, they found themselves coming
into possession of such an inferior
quality of grain that they refused con
signment and sold the delivery to
some one else.
This, he said, resulted in keeping
the price down.
Mr. Greeley said that the system of
doctoring or "plugging" grain was be
ing followed In Chicago every day. and
that It was worked for the purpose
of keeping the price at a low level a
long as there was any grain to be
bought by the six concerns, which, he
said, controlled the industry in Chica
As proof of this assertion he read the

the board of directors of the Chicago

statements concerning the opera lions
of the J. llosenbau li company in 1905.
Tills committee, according to the re
port, found 125 cars of "plugged"
wheat which had b.eii loaded trom the
Irondale elevator In such manner that
many bushels of screenings were con
cealed beneath good wheat. Nearly the
whole, consignment of 125 cars was
passed by the inspectors as No. 2 red.
An investigation j| tins case resulted
in the discharge ot two emplojes.

scapegoats, llo asserted that, the oni

ior (|tialit.v of grain for the edification
of those who bought on a future deliv
ery basis resulted I keeping the price
of grain down, and It has been kept
down for years.
Calls it Pawnbrokers' Game.
"The panic of IS:Ki at Chicago was
created by this ring. It is a pawnbrok
ers' game, and the system has as its
ally the grain inspection service of the
"Ever since 1890 that service has
been unreliable. There is not a man
who will buy grain on a public ware
house receipt. He riust see the grain.
It is a fact generall.v known that every
commission merchant maintains his
private inspector and persons" who
watch each shipmei t."
To prevent the evil of which he
complains, Mr. Greeley said it was the
duty of tile state of Illinois to see that
grain in public warehouses was so
mixed that tiie average quality of it
should be fair and not to allow half a
do/.en concerns to manipulate the price
of grain by maintaining an inferior
quality for exhibition to those who
have made purchases of grain for fu
ture delivery, and :hus scuring tiieni
into sacrificing their allotments.
He said that, the 05.000 farmers with
whom he had talked, and whom be bad
addressed in the west at their various
Institutes, were in favor of a federal
inspection law, mainly because the
state law has been failure.
Senfttor Uolllver tried to get Mr.
Greeley to agree with him that the
whole cause of dissatisfaction among
farmers is the systtm of gambling in
food product purchases and sales, in
stead of buying and selling them out
Mr. Greeley took issue with Senator
Dolliver on this score and said:
"No. we do not want to do away
with the gambling. It is that feature
which gives life to the business. What
we want, however, is honest inspec
tion and the cessation of the frauds
that are now being perpetrated on
wheat producers by public warehouse
The committee on agriculture dur
ing the day listened to the remarks of
a number of grain growers of the
middle west who favored the McCum
ber measure.
