Kansas City, Mo., Wednesday, Jnne 7, 1905.' Tbe usual summer lump in catila price seems to havo arrived this week, nearly a month ahead ot time. Good to choice beef steers are not more than 10 or 15 cents, but other grades are 20 to 30 cents lower, quarantine cattle even more than that. Principal cause of the break: this week is the large number of cattle moving from quarantine territory to market, in an effort to get ahead ot the usual summer break, it has turned out that tbe anxiety of tbe shippers brought about what they were trying to avoid. A total of 30,000 cattle in three days has delivered tbe market over to tbe buyers, and shippers have no resourse in the way of forwarding to some other market, as they are all alike this week, 20 to 30 cents lower. While good beef steers are not more than 10 or 15 cents lower, cows and heifers have got tbe full benefit of tbe decline, and stockers and feeders are suffering that dullness always noted belore prospects for tbe new corn crop are developed, a sort of waiting game on part of tbe country buyers. Receipts will no doubt lighten up after today, but markets will be dull balance of this week, probably at steady prices. Bust steers now bring $5 .75, to p today $5.55, bulk of steers at $4.75 to $5 50, heifer and yearlings $3.75 to $5 00, cows $3.25 to $4.60, veals $4.50 to $5.50, bulls $2 60 to $4.50, stockers $3.25 to $4 40, feeders $3.15 to $4.60. Hog markets hera have run along about steady for a week or more, a 1 ' lo higher yesterday, but back to the ruling top price of $5.53 now is without the element of speculation it usually holds, as the market is run niog go steady, and besides, all weights sell close together, practically at the same prices. Shippers should look out for grassy bogs from this time on. Sheep markets are strong as a rule, and lambs, especially, are firm. Heavy runs from Texas and Arizona are about over, and dealers expect a good sheep market for the next two months, or till Idaho and Utah stuff begins to come. Native spring lambs sell at $6.00 to $7.25, clipped lambs 8b 75 to $ 15, stock 6beep $2.75 to $3.50, although not much country stuff is' coming; a few stock goats around $3 25. J. A. RlCKAltT, L. S.
