Liberal Receipts Find Easy Outlot on
Broader Outside Orders.
Chicago, March 24.—The market for
the current month promises to estab
lish several new records for daily,
weekly and monthly receipts. Arrivals
have been in excess of anticipation, but
the extraordinary movement has been
promoted by the unexpectedly broader
outside demand for all commercial
classes. In the heavy draft offerings
the animals of show class have not
been as numerous as reported last
season, although the general demand
has held nominally steady. A few
fancy offerings of extreme weight
and extra quality have been reported
that changed hands at $3500400, but
not until yesterday did the $500 show
animal feature the market this season,
when two fancy pairs were taken by
an eastern dealer at the previous rec
ord price of $1,000 each. The sale
demonstrated that fanciers were ready
to pay last season's prices for drafters
for exhibition and general utility pur
poses. Good to choice drafters are
free sellers at nominally steady prices,
the bulk of sales being around $1700

Most Important Meeting in World Held
At Des Moines.
Des Moines. March 24. The lobby
of the Chamberlain hotel was tempor
arily converted into the biggest egg ex
change in the world yesterday morn
ing. more business being done there
in a few hours with the product of the
hen than is frequently transacted on
many big grain exchanges. The oc
casion was the annual meeting of the
Iowa Car Load Egg Shippers' associa
tion, which is being attended by nearly
100 leading shippers of the state. In
addition over seventy prominent rail
road cold storage commission men of
Chicago and the east are at the meet
ing, having come in two special cars
over the Great Western.
The principal object of the meeting
is to fix the price of eggs for cold stor
age the coming year. This is a most
perplexing problem at the present
time, but eggs are now much higher
than they have been in a number of
years. Last year the association fixed
its price on storage eggs at 16%c in
Chicago and 17% cents in New York.

commission men are much exercised
over .a report received in Des Moines
yesterday during the progress of their
meeting to the effect that the Illinois
Central railroad has declared war on
the private car lines and announced a
reduction of almost 30 per cent in the
rate on all iced shipments over its
The information is to the effect that
the rate has been reduced from New
York to Missouri river points from
$1.10, old tariff, to 74% cents per hun
dred weight, and that intermediate
points will receive a corresponding
reduction. This reduction is claimed
to amount to the cancellation of all
charges for icing.
Sioux City advices are to the effect
that the schedule has been made pub
lic there and that the Illinois Central
rate is a reduction of 36 cents on iced
shipment charges formerly made by it
from that point.

locate the relatives of Chas. Christ,the
horse trader who was found dead in
the house occupied by him and his
companions. It was said that he had
relatives livi.ig near Manson but tele

that there was no such man known
there. He came here with a party of
horse traders and some days ago
was. found dead by his friends, lying
across the stove.

Sheriff J. H. Cremer Had Interesting
Time Securing Noah Bradford.
Sheriff J. H. Cremer quietly told
some of his friends on his recent re
turn from Peoria of the troubles he
had had in bringing Noah Bradford,
the man accused of robbing E. S.
Mr. Bradford, the gentleman sus
pected of being a fur robber who has
been occupying a bunk in the city
prison for some days, is much in love,
not only with his quarters in the city
hall, but also with Peoria and the
whole state of Illinois.
"In fact, so deeply has he become
enamored of this vicinity that when
an Iowa sheriff arrived on the scene
this morning and announced that he
was going to take him to Ottumwa,
Iowa, on the 7:15 train Bradford flatly
refused to go. He announced that he
was very well where he was and that
if anybody took him to Iowa it would
have to be a bigger man than the sher
iff of Ottumwa.
"The sheriff tried persuasion and
then tried profanity, but the fellow
was impervious to both. Then the
sheriff called for reinforcement and
between them they got Bradford Into
his socks, but at this point he vas
again overcome with the thought of

onse more he rebelled. It took half a
dozen to wriggle him into his tro is ers
and he came very near strangling a
few of them with his suspenders be
fore they got those properly adjusted.
"And then, just as they were about
to tie his four-in-hand for him with all
that graceful elegance for which the
police force of Peoria Is noted, Brad
ford had another fit and backing to
the furthermost corner defied nnybody
to put on his coat and vest.
"By this time it was fifteen minutes
to train time and the sheriff was froth
ing at the mouth. But finally the com
bined efforts of the force overpowered
the obdurate one and he was thrown
into the patrol wagon and rattled to
the station just In time to be hauled
on the moving train.
"Bradford is wanted at Ottumwa for
stealing a quantity of furs and ship
ping them to this city, where the furs
and the man were both bagged by the
police. He is also suspected of rob
bing Faber's store of more than a hun
dred mink skins, but as they have a
clear case against him in Iowa he will
go there for trial. Iowa is much hard
er on its offenders than Illinois, hence
Bradford's reluctance to trust himself
to the leniency of its laws."
