S3 ears being reported in. This Is the heaviest run for a Monday since three week ago, and with that exception tho heaviest for a long time back. It would appear from reports brought In by stock men that the large run la due partly to aorae feeders running out of oorn and hay. Soma of them hesitate to buy more feed at prevailing high prloee. While still others find It difficult to secure what they want In. their Immediate neighborhood. Another reason for the large shipments of cattia la the sear that haa gone out. regarding gov ernment regulation of prloee,- Tho packers In advocating that the government should put s limit to the high ooet of meat prod ucts mads a very ahrewd movement to break the market. As a matter of fact eommlsalon men on the Omaha market, and on all 'other bit; markets, understand most thoroughly that the government has not the slightest intention or putting a Hmltt on prloee, and even If the govern ment did have auch designs, with the op position that would be provoked In congress It would be Imposslbls to get a law through that body In time to effect the preaent sup- dIv of corn fed cattle, which will be prac tically all disposed of by July. Stockmen at the big markets regret the scare, because If It continues It tnuat result In shippers loslns money needlessly. As a reault of the large receipts of eattle at all points today prices hers were around lotjite lower on tns general run oi auiersi right good beeves selling up to 911.3ft, - Cows and heifers showed the same de cline as heaves, while heavy feeders were lot? 36o or more lower.
