Jan. 17.-Elghteen delegates to the convention of the National league of Commlrfslen Merchants were thrown Into the ley water of Echo river, which winds a tortuous course through Mammoth cave, and were saved only by the coolness of the guide, John Nelson, aand the heroic work of Charles A.

Other markets have also had liberal receipts and the ten dency of prioea has been decidedly down- I The feature of the cattle market this " " uim m. 1. uiv uig nuppiy ui Biiuri'ieu steers and xthe ec&roity of well-tinlahed beeves. The big bulk of the offerings at all points has been made up-of cattle in Just fair flesh. At this point the market held up fairly well until Thursday, prices on Wednesday being nearly back to where they were st the close of last week. On Thursday and Friday of this week, bow ever, packers pounded the market in bad shape, steers showing a loss of 1626c. Packers gave 'as one of their reasons for pounding prices the shortage of refriger ator cars, out whether or not that was the true cauHe is hard tc say. Good to choice steers are quotable fro.n $4.60 to 84.75, vyltu something strictly prime a little higher. Fair to good sell from 34.26 to 34.60 and common xlruis from 34.16 down. The cow market has suffered even worse than steers. On Thursday and Friday buyers took off 26tjC6y, which leavea the loss for the week about 30c to 40c. Canners and cutters are selling largely from 31.73 to 82.26,. fair to good from 32.26 to 32.60, and good to choice ' from 12 GO to 33.26, with something extra choice from 33.25 to 33.76. Bulls are also lower for the week, tho decline amounting to fully a quarter, but veal calves are about steady. There has been a good demand for stock ers and feeders all the week and good stuff may be quoted a little higher. The quality of the cattle coming forward this week has been hotter than usual and one extra choice load sold as high as 34.6o. The bulk of the good to choice cattle, however, rell from 83.60 to 3400, fair to good from 13.25 to 33.60, and common kinds from 83.25 iown. ' HOGS The hog market opened active and strong to 6c higher this morning and there waa Very, little change -In the situa tion from the start to nn&h. Buyers Deemed to be anxious for supplies and sasmen saw no opportunity-of getting better prices, and a a result they -ut loose freely . and an early clearance was made. The bulk of the medium weight hogs sold from 84.70 to 34 76, heavy mixed it b to Hau. ana prime heavies from .90 to 34.90. Lialit stuff sold from 34 70 aown, out mere were not as many light trashy loads on sals as usual. For the week receipts have shown little ehange either as compared with last week or with the corresponding week of last year. Prices have fluctuated back and forth quite a little, but the general ten dency has been upward and closing prices show a net gain over the close of last week of about a dime. Trading has bn quite active on mpat days, so that the offerings have been well cared for. Heavy hogs are still selling to the best advantage and, In fact, light stuff Is very hard to dlKpose of, particularly If it runs down to Ms. A. Ft. Me. av. Ik. r ..trr 40 4 Tt ..314 tO 4 71 ..141 ...

Fur tha .ir relets show a slight gain over last week, and as compared with the corresponding week of last year there is .a gain amount ing to about 16.000 head. . The demand iiiuuKii, hub uren in gooa snape anil is a result prices have been quite satisfactory On Monday the market ruled a little higher, but the heavy receipts the middle of the week caused prices to ease off, but yesterday practically all of the loss was regained on the good stuff, so that as oom pared with the close of last week well fat tened sheep and lambs may be quoted a little stronger or about steady with Mon day. The common, kinds, though, are 1013 15o lower, as packers do not seem to be at all anxious for the part fat stuff. The demand for feeders has been fully equal to the supply and prices axe fully steady. Feeder buyers havs taken quite a good many of the short-fed kinds this week at belter prices than the killers would pay. Quotations for corn fed stock: Choice wentern lambs.
