South (Jmaha Commission Men Expect the Prices to Go Much
Lower Before Many Days.
The predictions of the hog men in
the live stock commission business in
South Omaha are that the price of
hogs will continue to drop for some
time. They bay that this Is generally
conceded by most of the dealers and
packers, and even the raisers and
feeders and that It is only a question
of what will be the bottom price
reached, and this they believe will all
depend on the supply. It Is the gen
eral opinion among these men that
there will be 23 per cent more hogs
on the market for the year 1910-11
than there were In the year 1909-10.
Some few doubt that there will be any
prices materially decline.
. While the commission men watch
ing the situation believe that hogs
will drop to the $G mark they do not
look for an extreme decline at pres
ent as they say there isn't the supply
In sight to warrant a great slump.
They say, however, that another year
of good corn crop In connection with
the Increase In breeding and raising,
will send the prlco downward per
haps to the $5 mark. When the $6
mark Is reached as they say it will be
before long, they maintain the packer
will be able to offer the meat to the
public at a price much more satisfac
tory price than at present.
It is held by the commission men
that with the prohibitive prices of
meat the past year was a very un
satisfactory one to the packer as well
as to the public, whllo the raiser and
the feeder were the only ones that
actually profited. "The extreme high
price reached," said ono South Omaha
commission man yesterday, "was
caused by the big shortage of supply
at all- tho markets compared to the
ordinary years. Hut the situation Is
fast adjusting Itself as wo near the
new crop now in sight. There is more
liberal marketing, and notwithstand
ing the decline to some extent each
day in price, the six markets for the
past week showed an Increase In re
ceipts of 6,200 over last week, and
13,800 increase over the correspond
ing week of last year. Monday in
South Omaha the bulk of the hogs
sold at $7.10 to $7.23, while In Chi
cago the price ranged from $7.20 to
$7.30 with the top at $7.40.
It Is reported that there are 20 per
cent more cattle and 30 per cent more
sheep fed this year than last. Re
ports from the country continue to
show corn yielding better than was
expected, and this Is taken to mean
that all stock fed this year will be
finished out In good weight.
Commission men feel that It Is er
roneous to charge the cause of high
or low prices to the big packers as
does Dr. Wiley, who viewed the pres
ent decline with suspicion and said It
would be but temporary, Whllo Dr.
Wiley's theory was that the packers
view of driving some Independent to
were manipulating prices with the
cover, commission men take the point
of view that the independents are
more anxious than anyone else that
tho prices be reduced, as they have
had a tough time of It since it has
taken ho much money to handle their
business. They hold that now with
the prospective increase in cattle,
hogs and sheep, and with the prices
of corn from 10 to 15 cents lower
for next year and the decrease of 20
per cent In consumption brought
about by last year's high prices, lower
prices will immediately be brought
about without any manipulation on
the part of either the big or little

James Pollock, who has been in
Cannenea, Mexico, is In the heart of
the Mexican revolution, and as he
has not been heard from fo. some
time, his brother, Mr. Rett Pollock,
of this city, has felt quite uneasy as
to his safety. Today he sent a tele
gram to the proprietor of the hotel In
Cannenea, where his brother last
wrote from, and inquired for him,
but up to the hour of going to press
no tidings had been received. The
press dispatches give an account of
an Indian uprising in tho Immediate
vicinity of this town, so that there
seems abundant reason for alarm on
Mr. Pollock's part.
ESSIE AROTT, who Is to make
nu American tour this season
lu "Ysobel," au opera by Mas-
cagnl, founded on Tennyson's
poem describing the ride of Lady Go
diva through the town of Coventry,
does not expect to make any consid
erable display of her personal charms
on tho stage.
It will be remembered that Lord
Tennyson had bis heroine ride through
the tow n "clothed only with her chas
tity" and that she was observed by
"one low churl, the fatnl byword of
all years to come." He became in
famous as "Peeping Tom of Coven
try," though the poet did not bestow
that nicknumo n him.
When Miss Abott wn asked how
she would dress or undress In her
new opera she explained that the role
would not require her to repeat the
performi! nee of Tennyson's heroine.
"YsolH'l's ride on the palfrey Is not
shown on the stage," Miss Abott said,
"but she appears for an instant before
she is ready to make her sacrifice. A
long cloak conceals her a wonderful
cloak of dark blue and gold, exquisite
ly embroidered and one of the most
beautiful garments I have ever seen.
It fastens tight around the chin, but
It Is the only garment Ysobel is sup
posed to wear.
"Now, in my opinion such sceues,
which reach the height of poetic beau
ty, too often are made ridiculous be
cause the actress is fully clothed un
der the clonk. This shows not only In
occasional gestures as well as In the
folds and contour of the garment, but
lu the demeanor of the actress herself,
who, knowing that she really is cloth
ed, feels none of that real modesty
which enhances tho part.
"I Intend to have this scene as near
ly as the poet Imagined It as is possi
ble on the stage. Under the cloak I
shall wear nothing except silk skin
tight fleshings. Then I'll bo mighty
sure not to make too many gestures.
Just as I start to go off the stage to
take that wonderful ride two maids
will take my cloak from me.
"While the ride is In progress the
tenor, who Is transformed from the
Peeping Tom of the story, throws flow
ers as I pass. lie is madly in love
with Y'sobel and takes this means of
defying the king, who has forced his
daughter Ysobel to take the ride. In
