Offerings were not -very heavy at first and the market held well up to the Initial figure until late In the day, when the foreign selling seemed to become heavier and there were rumors that a large amount of valorisation oof fee would be placed on the market next year. The valorisation oumiulttee meets early In January, but there Is unlikely to be any official answer until after that meeting and the rumors of this meeting, while they seemed to contribute to the rasiur tone of the market, were but ac companied by details.

The receipts for the week have been very heavy, footing up 27,:tj3 bead, a gain of about 4,000 head over the same days last year. In addition to this Chicago and all eastern points have been glutted with rattle and with meats so that the local buying demand has been greatly reduced. Packers have all been heavy buyers of beef steers this week with the Result that this mor.-.lng they had orders for very few additional cattle. As a result the market on beef steers waa practically dead, or the next thing to that. It was not so much a matter of price as It wag to get a buyer out Into the yards to look at the cattle. This means that the trade was extremely slow and weak. It will be remembered that the market on Friday of last week eased off from the. high point on Thursday, Taking Into account the weakness of today, It Is safe to say that the market la closing 400500 lower than at the close of last week. Cows and heifers were equally alow sellers with beef steers and they too are safely etng&Oo lower than last week a fin ish. There were no stock er or feeders of any consequence In the yards, the supply being unmeet 10 a tew scattering bunches. For the week the best feeders are not very much lower, but the common and medium kinds are sharply lower.

In the market for heavy Bluff soms strong spots were shown, sales of 27S and 23i-tb. averages frequently claiming fig. urea strong to poeelbly a nickel higher, haoon varieties sold ln the usual uneven fashion, ranging from 86.96 down to 84 and) 6.80 for the Inferior and high mixed grades. The demand from all local quarters had a fairly active tone during most of the session, and at 10:30 o'clock practically all of the run bad changed hands. Entire receipts amounted to something like 10,600 head, an estimate that Included almost everything, running from choice heavy to little pig stuff. Kbtppera and speculators bought spar ingly, furnishing an outlet for leas than 10 per cent of the total. Oood butcher hogs were favored on outside orders, ths same as recently, and averages under 2l0 pounds were left eeverely alone by buyers not associated with local packers. Oood to choice lard animals landed at e UX04.15 In moat Instances, the latter price being too. Butcher classes sold around ttuu. and lights moving within the low spread, gave the market a range of more than 60c. There ware only a few av altered bunches of pigs on sale.

For the first time In two or three weeks of ferings consisted largely of feeders, mostly common ewes at thst. The pres ence of ao much range stock In receipts was explained by the fact that various western sheepmen are here attending the National Sheen show this week, a cir cumstance thnt encourages the billing of belated shipments from sections where reed prospects for the winter are rather doubtful. Arrivals of cornfeds made ud lees than 20 per cent of the 3,SH0-lieKd estimate and sold readily, bringing price Just about steady. The best lambs available reached tfi.fco, identical with yesterday's top, and some good ewes landed at 83.45. There were no very good wethers or yearlings of consequence on sale and values re mained nominal. Country call for feeders seemed rather perverse. Ruyers wanted lambs, but avoided sheep on a trade In which feeder lambs were the exception. Movement proved slow and there was very little business transacted until well along to ward midday. Steady prices prevailed, however, and nothing happened ln any branch of the market to materially change the general situstlon. Only 6,200 head of slock have been purchased on county ac count during the four days this week, ac cording to (ackers' tab. compared with a week ago. most classes of fat stock are closing steady, the main feature of the trade being a more severe discrimination between good to choice and common to medium offerings.

Business men are disposed to move ahead and the sit uation as the year draws to a close is so much more encouraging aa to be tliu year's most conspicuous development. The holiday trade in notably active in all the large cities. This retail activity, coupled with the unusually warm weather and the end of the year accounting, op erates to make wholesale operations slower, but there has . been no check lo expansion In business. The outlook for the new year is exceedingly promising. In the dry goods trade the raot notice able development is the betterment In woolens and worsteds. Silks are also stronger. Leather Is dull, but prices are firm. Hides are weak. Each week serves to emphasize the pronounced betterment ln Iron and steel. Operations of mills and furnaces are on an enlarged scale and several plants, now Inactive will start again before th close of this month.

Trade ln other lines has re ceded a little. A general survey Indicates that the weather has been too mild for a free dis tribution of seasonable goods at retail, while lobbing trade has been confined mainly to filling-lii orders for fancy arti cles suitable to holiday requirements and wholesale business reflects the Influences of the Inventory season.
