opened steady at a decline of Still
points ln response to lower liXiropean ca
ble, scattering liquidation and foreign
selling ordrra. 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 close was

CATTLE Receipts of cattle were very
liberal for Friday twenty-four cars be
ing reported In, Which was Just about
that many more than were wanted. 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.

HOGS Sellers had hog trade well under
control, despite a heavy supply, and it
required only a little selling effort to
place bulk of offerings at stesdy prices.
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
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.

tHEfc,P A fair sized run of sheep and
lambs arrived, but from A pseker's view
point the eetlmate was deceptive, as lai
strings were conspicuously scarce. 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
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
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.

NEW TORK. Dec. 15.-R. O. Dun
company's Weekly' Review of Trade to
morrow will say: . , ,
The betterment ln Industrial and trails
conditions, signs of which have 1 ' I
visible to close observers for two monXi,
has now become plain to all, and la re
flected by the expansion In bank clear
ings and railroad earning, the big tip
lift In the Iron and steel trade, the ad
vance ln copper, the Increased activity
In dry goods, the brisker demand fur
money, and In the confidence lnsirfied
by the record breaking cotton crop of
upwards of 15,000,000 bales. 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. The November statement
of the United States steel corporation was
particularly favorable. Prices ata
strengthening slightly. Wire goods huvra
advanced 21 per ton, wire nails being
now quoted at 21.66 for carload loin.
Sheets are firmer. Bessemer and open
hearth billets are stronger. Pig Iron is
mure active and some good slued sales
are reported. Spot furnace coke is in
better demand and has advanced &c a
ton. Following the heavy decrease In
copper stocks last month quotations have
advanced within a fraction of 14a. '
BRADSTREET-S TRADE! REVIEW
Active Holiday Trade and Better
Conditions la Iron Industry.
NEW TORK. Dec. 15,-Bradstreet g to
morrow will say:
Two features stand out prominently ln
the week's trade news the admittedly
active holiday trade at most leading;
points and the undeniably better under
tone in Iron and steel, price advances
being significant In connection with fin
ished steel. 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.
Clearance sales of staple goods at re
tall are being pressed at an earner data
