Lack of quality nas neia quotations for some time now with no tat-1 prorement today. Sellers had less than 7.500 hogs held over from yes terday, but the trade was weak. Receipts were 14,000 cattle, 48, 000 hogs, 13,000 sheep and 4,000 calves. ' .. CATTLE. While cattle supplies were light here and at other western, points, the trade was slow, ome of the best heavy steers sold fully steady, but quality was one of the plainest in a long time, and most of the steers were easy to lower. Bulk sold at 8.009.75. Yearlings , and choice cows and heifers were hard to find buyers for even at lower values, and sellers had many un sold. Canners and bulls were steady, upply of calves showed improve ment In quality and values were strong. HOGS. ' Prices were steady at the start. compared with the average of the day before. Later in the day, how ever, the market weakened with values off 5c to 10c from the best time of the previous session. Top light hogs made $8.30 while pack ing grades went at $7.25 to $7.80. Pigs were in good demand, with choice lots at $8 to $8.25. SHEEP. It was a weaker market for lambs. Some sales of heavy stuff went at a decline of 25c, with the general trade off 10c to 15c from the day before. Choice fat lambs sold at $15 to $15.15. Aged muttons were steady on a light, supply.

That Illinois was a pi oneer in the building of electrical transmission systems, radiating from central power stations, is the ! . -" .

The committee points out that today with 858,000 consumers it stands first among the states in the num ber of electric light customers.

From the main ..transmission lines, laterals branch off in all di rections so that the further devel opment in Illinois will be largely through an extension of the present lines. Tne generating capacity in the central plants of the utilities of the state total 1,200,000 kilowatts. The longest continuous transmis sion lines in the state extend from Keokuk, Iowa, to Terre Haute, Ind., estimated to be about 350 miles in length. There is also a continu ous line from Danville on the east to Peoria on the north and Venice on the south. A line extends from Zion City, southward around Chica go as far as Bismarck, a distance of almost 250 miles. Chicago, Doc II.

Bond Market SK.BOB T. ETjriBZS cop7TicM. m ; , New York,! Dec I9.r-What little buying power was Available in to day's bond market was largely ab- j sorbed by the new offerings includ ing Carolina Clinchfield and Ohio Railway 6jer cent bonds,, the. De troit Kdison 6 per cent debentures and a new block of electric bond and share preferred. Both the two first named issues were reported disposed of early in the day. " It is an interesting commentary on the relative attractiveness of railroad and utility investments to observe that the mortgage secured railway bond was offered on a higher yielding basis than the un secured obligation of an electric light and power company. It is true that the latter after, two years will be convertible into an 8 per cent dividend paying common stock at par but it is also true that the demand in this market is for util ity and not for railroad securtiies. Unless the railroad earnings in crease substantially next year rail- orad financing will have to be done at rates out of proportion to the general market Along this same line the demand for old issues well secured the obligations of prosper ous utilities is greater than the supply. For instance, the other day 110 was bid on the board, for King's County Electric Light and Power purchase money sixes and of such bonds as New York Gas and Electric Light, Heat and Power first 5s can be sold on a 5 per cent basis or slightly better. The general market today ex; hibited the same characteristics as fo o fnatnlvht nnct St Va 111 isw sues were weak again without any! ,oaQnn hoinir dvanced. Infer- ments which .were soacttve when thev announcement was first made of the deal with the St Louis-San Francisco dropped more than a pint today. St. Louis-San Fran cisco 'incomes reacted further. ' On the . other hand Erie bonds gained. The Erie is said to have been more foraunate than some of its com petitors in its relations with its shop forces. . Minneapolis, St Paul and Sauli Ste. Marie 6s sold ip sharply. The Soo Line's recovery in earning power has been one oi tne notable achievements et the rail way year. ;: ' Manhattan Railway r 4s lost a point This is the bond secured by first mortgage An the elevated roads in the Boroughs of Manhattan and the Bronx.' It sold today, at 63 on a 6.3 per cent basis nearer the low than the high of the year. Back! in 1906 it sold as high as 103. It is still a legal investment for sav ings banks in New York state but traction securities are not in favor. It is different with the Hudson and Manhattan which operates under the interstate commerce commis sion and is. classed as a railway. Both issues of this road's bonds, the refunding 5s and the adjustment 5s sold higher today in response to the very favorable earnings state ment for November. , There was ' nothing particularly notable either in foreign bonds or in United States government issues.

A dispute arose as iu me text 01 me invitation to the bankers, the Eng lisn ana f rencn wording oemg somewhat at variance. Anyway, the French saw the bankers' committee as a body attempting to usurp the functions of the reparations com- mission and as endeavoring to de- crease Germany's reparation lia - bility. under such circumstances the bankers' committee accomplish ed nothing except to set forth to the world its views which are as valid today as' they were then. Unquestionably the United States government is in complete accord with the statement made by the bankers' committee, namely that the fixing of the reparations must be done first before any private loans can. be considered. The American government has been hopeful that France would revive the invitation to the bankers' committee and that at me same nme diplomatic influ ence might be cautiously - exerted to secure an agreement between the allies to forego enforcement of cer tain sections of the Versailles treaty. Parleys Hast be Blade. The diplomatic parleys must pro ceed concurrently with any efforts of the bankers to examine anew the intricate questions of credit involv ed in the flotation of a loan to help Germany. The last word from the bankers' committee was in itself a bid tor another invitation. It' reads as follows: : ' "The committee is deeply con scious of the immense . assistance to the economic recovery of the whole world which would be af forded by gradual . conversion of Germany's obligation from a debt to governments into a debt to pri vate investors based like- other pub lic debts, not upon external sanc tions, but on the general credit of I the debtor country. They believe. indeed, that the resumption of nor mal conditions between countries and the stabilization of exchanges 1 are impossible without a definite settlement of the reparations pay ments as of other external public debts. ..
