Liberal receipts of cattle at all
the principal markets today turned
prices down. However, there was
active demand for beef in the east
and the weakness in live cattle is
81.85 thought to be only temporary.
69.00 Here prices were off 15 to 25 cents.
Hog prices steady. Fifty thousand
arrived in Chicago, and fairly lib
eral supplies elsewhere. Sheep
and Iambs were quoted weak to
25 cents lower. Demand was fair
ly active at the decline.
Today's Receipts
Receipts today were 14,000 cat
tie, 14,500 hogs, and 8500 sheep,
compared with 13,500 cattle, 12,500
sheep last week, and 16,800 cattle,

Liberal . receipts i together with
rather unsettled labor outlook

Opening bids for hogs were 15

fore many sales were made the mar
ket rallied to last week's closing
level. Actual sales showed the

price was $10.90, and bulk $10.00 to
$10.80. Pigs were fully steady and
in active demand. J. he top price
was $11.50. Prices for pork in the
East were advanced $2.00 to $3.00
a hundred pounds so that the hog
market is in a position to stand
liberal supplies. ( -

to 25 cents lower. After the
decline was established trade be
