Cattle At Chicago. • Chicago, Sept. 20.—The live stock market during the past week has ruled decidedly firm and about all de pay ments show a substantial gain in prices. At the start there was a mod erate supply of all kinds of cattle and the general tone was strong and buoy ant. Sales were made somewhat ir legularly, but there was a better feel ing all around and prices for shipping lots averaged about 10c higher. Good fat animals were scarce, while buyers for such were plenty, dressed-beef men and eastern shippers being prom nent purchasers. Quotations do not range very high, because there were no really good to prime beeves offered. On the other hand there were few low grade grass cattle here and no more wanted. Butchers' stock was brisk and live ly on good grades. Fat cows and heifers were in small supply and ac tive inquiry. City butchers and can nois came in competition, and the out side orders for hardy lots were rather large. Values advanced 10@15c. Offerings of range tattle were light, and trading was generally satisfactory to sellers. Prices were 10c higher all along the list, and there were sales which showed a more decided ad vance. Stockers and feeders were firm. Desirable voung animals sold 10@15c higher, and really well-bred ots were scarce. Eastern dairy calves, however, were abundant, and bids considerably lower than holders thought theV could accept. As the week advanced the market for fat cattle was about the same as at the beginning. In some cases sales men and buyers claimed that values were stronger on good grades, but as a rule there was no appreciable differ ence. In fact there was only a light eastern shipping demand and the gen eral market for shipping grades not exactly of a quality to suit buyers, exhibited a quiet undertone of weak ness. There were some coarse, half fed droves on the market which were more or less neglected, but desirable lots changed hands quickly at good prices. 1 Gows and mixed lots were passably active for desirable grades. Offerings were small and the demand fair. City butchers were in good attendance and so were canners, and the supply of Texans was not large enough to meet their wants. In the market for stackers and feed ers the feeling for good thrifty cattle was strong and prices firmer. A num ber of eastern buyers were present and good lots were found hard to se cure. The calf market was dull anc weak, offerings were poor and buyers considered prices too high. Toward the close of the week re ceipts were large, but there was not a very considerable increase in the supply of fair to prime shipping steers and for anything answering the above description the market held its own In fact there was no perceptible de dine in any class of native steers, sales being readily effected at $4.30@$5 for poor to fair grassers, and at $5.50@ $7.10 for common to extra corn fed lots, which was about up to previous figures. There was, however, a dis position on the part of salesmen to quote the market a little lower, but the claim was not backed up by the figures. Trade was active under the influence of favorable eastern advices, and al lots good enough to go forward found ready buyers. Few droves went be low $4.75. and there wasouly here and there a lot at over $6.25, the quality averaging poor. Native butcher's stock was fairly active, with no quotable variation in prices. Poor lots were rather weaker but for fair to best it was possible to get full figures. Cows sold at $2@$4.25 for inferior to prime, and sales of bulls were at $2.50@$3.75. A few steers were* taken at $4034.50, while reals were wanted at $4.50@$7.25, according to quality. Rangers were abundant, bnt there was a sharp demand and sellera bad the satisfaction of seeing quotations sustained. Texans changed bands at $4034.25 for poor to fair lote, and Westerns at $4@$5.50. Stockers con tinued inactive demand, and not being in very liberal supply sold strong. There was also a good demand for 1 'eeders and for stock calves. Stockers went at $3.25@$4.35, and feeders at $4@$4.70. Continued light receipts of sheep tiave enabled sellers to hold prices about steady in spite of a rather slack demand. Shippers only wanted a few and local traders have not taken hold with much apparent interest. Sales ranged at $2.30@$4.24 for inferior to prime lots. Gen.
