DOINGS BEEF TO BRING HIGHER PRICES WHOLESALE PRICES ALREADY ADVANCED THOUGH RE TAIL MARKET HAS NOT BEEN HIT. 1 1 i ghe-r price's for beef arc predicted l UM wholsolers fur Kit- very near future. The advance is already noted .:. lit.- Chicago markets, ami while ' ii n has 1 1 t affected the local retail i tartlet, if present conditions continue, it Ik likely to do so in a very .short time. The shortage of cuttle, ospeciallv prime (cef steers is given as the rea son for the udYunce. The winter has Im-cii a severe one and the farmers and cetUenen have- found It almost as profitable to sell their corn as to feed it lo th cattle. This and the fact that tin- Hoods in the middle wist and the i " or reada are making- it difficult for e.ittlemen to bring their stock to the markets, have combine, I to reduce the supply considerabl.v, according to a II known wholesale man who dis cussed the situation yesterday. As n Illustration, it might be cited thst Inst Friday only 40,70il cattle entered the 'hleago stockyards, compared with 4S.493 one year ago. Iust Friday's tcit.il was the smallest since Decenibci, l y i o. The effect of this shortage on the market was to cause the ruling quota tion! to advance sharply on Monday. Wednesday and lYIday, to about 8'4 i nta per pound for prime cattle on the hoof, Winn the cost of dressing the rattle is taken Into consi.leratlon. In addition to the transportation costs, Ii can readily be .seon that the price per pound reaches dangerously near the present retail prices ami that an &d ance moy come. VnoUief feature which has a bearing on the situation is tin- naeoBg lent and the Jewish Paaeover, with the con "equent increase which, according to thoec fRWtMaf with the trade umounts t ' iiniderale. The consumers ore themselves largely to blame for the shortage of Meet, according to the wholesaler re quoted. The demand for the Dli M cuts of beef greatly exceeds In proportion the demand for the cheaper ' nts. and as the packer naturally ca ' rs to the consumer, then- is more te now than In the bygone days. toother factor which contributes i 'ii more to the high cost of meat Is mid in the demand for veal. If the public would refrain entirely from eat n. k vi i! ror a period of six months, the prlee or meat would drop several cents, according to the wholesaler. Cnlvei would then be allowed to grow In matUlitjr, increasing the present many times. But as long as ublk must have the tender veal and the choicest Uta of meat.

COUNCIL IS PERPLEXED. Unable to Ascertain What Liquor Li censes to Reject. The laurium council Is enrelv pel plexed. There were presented at last evening's meeting twenty-nine appli cations for liquor licensee, Ave more applications than the number ot sa loons in operation last ytar, In the light of the recent ruling of the su preme court of the state to the efftact thai all cities and villages must get down to a basis of one saloon for ev ery live hundred inhabitants, only eighteen applications may be grun'ed. it is believed that tn unoll is anxious to conform to the pioviaions of the Warncr-t'rainpton law as intcr ireted by the highest tribunal of the state which would entitle the village to eighteen saloons and it does not seem possible that the five new li censes desired may be granted this year If the number of saloons Is lo be reduced to eighteen, it will be Impos sible to grant licenses to six of tlmse In business last year. Sixteen of the present saloon keepers were in busi i.esa when the Warner-Crampton act went Into effect in IftOU and are there fore entithnl to new license, provid ed their bondsmen meet with the council's approval. Hut In selecting the two saloonlsta to whom licenses may be iswued to make up the eighteen, some difficulty is being experienced. So much time Mas devoted to the consideration of this question In exo cutivc session last evening, t hat It was deemed wise to defer the making of appointments for the ensuing year. Mo ilecUion was reached at last evening's meeting relative to the saloon licenses ami the meeting was adjourned until Thursday .ifternoon at 1 o'clock. REAL ESTATE IN DEMAND.

If IU1J doesn't prove baseball's ban ner year, 1 shall be disappointed. sas August Herrmann, chairman of the Nat lonai 'hniuteahin, Baseball has not reai hod lie full de velopment, not by a gnat deal. Ho man an eaj what its litnitatiems arc i do not think the prediction of a. a, Spalding, that bueHiuli will one elay he the world's sport, Is too rosy, al though this Is a long ;iv off. The new agreement of the major and minor leagues has arought shout t more harmonious uaueretaitdiag that cannot help improve the gann . This asTe-e-ment bee improved the position of the pemyef, the man who plays the game and this meat in -Moved playing. Tlds means, in turn, a more tlmroughlv satisfied public, and never lorget It is the public really makes the national game. One sign of the time's is the splen did new fields and the housing ac commodation lor patrons, in major league- cities. Rome, when spectacles were the life of the people never dreamed of su h place. Her games anel gladiatorial contests were staged In less pretentions enclosures than the new homes of many clubs. The stands in Cleveland, Philadel phia, New York, ltrontclvn. Chicago. Petrol! and lfcvston indicate the pro gress of the game. Thousands who remained OW03 rattier than submit lo discomfort and dirt will attend the fjtone regularly. Bvcr.v thing that can be done to make surrounelni:s attrai -tive to nwtl and women, has been pro vided and the modern ball park is as comfortaJblc as a theater. The calll re of young plnv ers who have come Into the major leagues this your is. seemingly, large, and the ran I should Ijo close. Clubs which last season were dangerous have be, n streak thenefl n their weak points and 1 anticipate a red hot struggle until the tit;. 1 1 day. Ijist ,ar was disastrous f'r several minor leuigues, due e hlefly to tho fee l Ing of prlhVoll and the ilesirej to f rget salary limits. Managers learn ed a aluable II e i.tlj lesson and tn;. season vvill avoid tho errors which made UOUhle. With geod weatlnr tho minors should be as prosperous, in eoaaparteon, se the iiwijeu- leagues. I shall ha very much surprised it any Nutlonal or American league club r akes a runaway race. In fact, each league Is more evenly balanced than ever before and that any one of four or five teams is apt to win the pennant In either league. PREPARING FOR OPENING.
