The Cheapest and Best Equipped Livery in. Town. U. È. SNYDER, Prop. Beef on the Hoof. Chicago, Sept. 27—The livestock market during the week just closed has ruled pretty firm for desirable droves, but weak and lower for unat tractive grades. At the opening there was a brisk demand for choice fat cattle, and although a heavy decline was reported in the New York and Jersey City market, this class of beeves was steady. The majority of the offerings, however, were of very poor quality, and prices for all manner of stuff, that come in competition with rangers, were exceedingly weak and about 15c lower. There were far too many grassers in the yards, and holders in some instances had diffi culty in getting rid of them even at concessions. Good to prime animals were very scarce. Butchers' stuff was quite uneven, but generally weak er. «Some salesmen who had very choice cows and heifers thought prices were not materially different, while those who had thin and grassy herds declared the market exceedingly dull. Canners and city butchers neglected natives for range cattle, aud as the latter were lower, of course cows and and mixed lots were lower in sym~ pathy. Range cattle were abundant, and buyers and sellers bad hard work to agree, as the former demanded a bid reduction in price. Hence sales were made slowly and showed a shrinkage of about 15320c. The de mand for stockers and feeders was not very urgent, but as the offerings were moderate the inquiry about equaled the supply and the market showed no material change. As the week ad vanced receipts were large in number but included very few attractive ship ping beeves, and while quotations were irregular, good to choice lots of all weights sold well up to former fig ures. Prices for low grades were ex tremely weak, and in many instances 10c off. The range of prices on good to choice fat lots of butchering stock was pretty nearly steady, but there were liberal offerings of inferior to fair droves which had to be sold at lower rates. Poor cows and mixed lots that came in competition with the cheaper range cattle were indeed slow sale, because canners a.id butch ers could get all they wanted of good and cheap Texans. Rangers were in big supply and sold down about 10c. There was a fairly active movement in the market for good to prime stock ers and feeders. Arrivals were rather liberal, but mainly of poor to medium quality. Medium to good calves were wanted und sold well, but there was little demand for common eastern calves. As the week drew to a close the market showed little material change. The quantity and quality of of the supply continued essentially the same, as did also the character of the demand and the course of prices. While the receipts reached a liberal aggregate, the offerings of good to prime shipping steers were compara tively few, and for that class, there fore, the advantage remained with sellers. The inquiry was not particu larly sharp, but there were not enough decently fatted cattle to satisfy it, and holders of anything possessing any merit found ready buyers at least pre vious prices. There were instances in which a slight advance was paid for attractive lots, but the change was not general, the market averaging steady and firm. Thin, rough grass-cattle re mained under neglect. Had there been been an adequate supply of better grades these common cattle must have sold lower, but as it was they held their own. Sales to shippers ran from $4.2534.50 for common to $6.85 for extra, but most of the trading was done at $4.5035 85, few prime steers being offered. Native butcher's stuff was faiVly steady. There were signs of weakness in low grades, but fair to best sold freely at unchanged figures. The supply was rather light and the demand well up to the average. Sales were at $2.4034.50 for inferior to choice cows, at $2.7533.50 for bulls, and at $4.1034.50 for comtnoa to fair little steers. Veals were scarce and firm at $4.5037.50. The supply of range cattle, although large was only about equal to the demand and the market remained steady. Canners and dressed-beef men bought liberally, Texans at $3.5534.25 and westerns at $3.8535.00. There was no diminution in the demand for stockers and feed ers, and as the supply continued rather light the market remained strong. The former were valuable at $3.503 4.50 for poor to choice, while the lat ter brought $4.2535.00. There was also an active inquiry for stock calves at $11.003$17, for common to prime lots. Sheep firmed up somewhat dur ing the early days, but later poor and common lots dropped back to the starting point. Good to choice grades did not show much change as they were scarce. Sales were at $2,2534.25 for inferior to good lots. Averaged $500 to the Ton. Maiden Argus: Some weeks since, Messrs. Snow & Kemper shipped to Omaha, Neb., about fourteen tons of ore from their Florence mine for re duction. At the time of shipment the Argus claimed the result would be a surprise to the most skeptical. The ore has proven to be worth what the owners claimed for it, viz: $500 per ton, it having averaged that when milled. Out of this shipment of four teen tons the boys cleared over all ex penses, $6.272.45. Judging from the character of the ore now being taken out of the mine, the next shipment will give much larger returns. Sioux Visit Crows. A dispatch of the 26th from Fort Custer savs: "Young Man Afraid of his horses." a prominent chief of the Sioux Pine Ridge agency, Dak., isjnow at the new Crow agency of the Little Big Horn, with 200 bucks, making it lively for the Crows. The Sioux came for a warming party with the Crows on the accession of their new quarters, but are sullen and disgusted and will not join their old enemies' dances. The agent called on the mili tary commander of Fort Custer to in terfere und send the Sioux back to Pine Ridge. He fears trouble. Agent Armstrong has received notice from Agent Swan, at Cheyenne agency, that another bunch of the-Sloux are on their way to join Young Man Afraid of His Horses. They have left the reserva tion without permission. The affair may be interpeted as a horse stealing exploration against the Crows. Arrangements for the Park Branch. Beginning Thursday, October 2d, trains will run on the Park branch but one trip each week. Every Thursday a train will leave Livingston at 9 a. m. and re.ich Cinnabar at noon; returning will leave Cinnabar at 1 p. in. and reach Livingston at 4 p. m. The agency at Cinnabar will be tempora rily discontinued and shipments must be prepaid. Movement of Cattle. Pioneer Press, 26th: Altogether the Northern Pacific road will have shipped (including cars ordered for the balance of this week) this sea son, over 2,000 cars of beeves, or 40, 000 bead, from Montana to Chicago. The road expects to ship 75.000 bead before the close of the season. T# the ranges in Montana and Western Dakota the Northern Pacific has ship ped 100,000 head of yearlings and two year-olds this season from Iowa, Wis consin and Minnesota. These will come back to the east as beeves the second or third season out, according to their grades. The Powder River Cattle company has 60.000 head of cattle on its range valued at $3,000,000, and has purchas ed lands at Superior City on which cattle pens and yards will be built, where cattle may be kept until ready for shipment by boat to Toledo, De troit and Buffalo. This method of shipping will be pursued by this com pany until direct shipment can be made to Europe. They will ship from Superior City this season 1,000 head, and 5,000 next year. A very signifi cant fact in connection with the growth of the stock empire in Mon tana, is that the official Live Stock Journal, hitherto always published at Cheyenne, which, was considered the centre of stoekdotn, has been removed wholly to Miles City.
