There 1 nothing particularly new to re

lines are selling In just about the same
notches they were a week ago and the
market may be quoted firm and active.
Spring business- is now opening up In good
chape and Omaha houses report trade as
linn much better than It waa a weak ago.
There Is gnnd evidence that spring lines
will 'be In still better demand In the Bear
future, -as Uis late buyers cannot postpone
ordering much longer. So far this season
more hardware ha been sold out of Omaha
than over- tfore during the same period
last year and It is the general opinion that
unless something unexpected happens ths
balance will continue in favor of this year.

a time at the opening there was some UtU
selling on the English situation, but in a
short time a steaay advance began en the
weather reports, and the maiket ruled
strong th rest of the day. There waa no
new a of moisture in the southwestern
wheat fields and crop damage reports
came In constantly. The flour situation In
the northwest was said to be Improving
and with it the cash wheat business,

local bulls also came into the market and
bulls placed numerous orders.

Corn opened firm and ruled with a good
tone throughout the -day. Cables were
firmer and receipts continued very, light.
The eouthwestern markets were sending
out bullish advices and the bull movement
In wheat gave some upward impetus to
corn. The crowd was fully as bullish as in
wheat, though the market was not as
broad. Belling was restricted, partly on the
fear of a bullish government report.- This
same sentiment also checked other trading
to some extent and moat traders were
satisfied to even up and wait. Msy opened

NaW TORK, March I Considerable ln
tarest rElerad today in the bank stste
ment and pending its pubilcatiox opera
tions in the stock market were wKhout
mock significance except In a few stocks.
The early market showed some Irregu
larity, but the prominent railroad storks
were firmly held and ths limited selling
was chiefly In the specialties, particularly
Colorado Fuel. Modexste buying of Mis
souri Pacific and Rock Island advanced
those stocks 1 to 3 polrts and there was
some disposition to cover later In the spe
dsJtiea, bringing the entire market above
laat night. Colorado Fuel waa .lfted U
above terdsy's close, but dealings were
unimportant in other metal stocks, except
Amaigsmsted Copper, which mbewed mo
mentary strength. There was soms re
newal of the recent demand for yester
days stocks, but material advances were
confined to Pari tic coast common and the
second preferred. Meetinghouse Electric,
Minneapolis A 8r Louis and Pacific Mail,
the latter being bought on expectations
of a renewed agreement with the Panama
Railroad company Publication of the bank
ststement. showing a loss of nearly ,
WO.fmo. which more than doubled the pre
liminary estlmstea, started Belling of 1 b
general list. Prices, however, did not, yield
much except in some of tbe stocks which
had notably advanced earlier, and there
Waa no decided preesure at any time. Bom
pressure waa felt at the increased loan
hem of fS.UMO.flnn. Tbe Immense cash loss
was quite genera Try attributed to the va
garies of the banks average system. With
surplus reserves down te less than 34.1106,
flu". and the gold export movement un
checked the crpinloa naturally prevails that
higher money rates are imminent. The
market closed active and saay.
Bonds have shown eome decrease from
recent activity, but the level of prices
was sreil maintained.. Cnlte4 - States 2s
advanced S. the Ss V, the new 4a, coupon,
aad tha old as, par cent over the

CATTLE There were only Just a few
head ef cattle in the yards today, so that a
fair test of the market was not made. For
the week a slight gala ever last week is
noted in the receipts and as compared with
tbe aame meek et last year there is a good
substantial gain. For the year to date, as
will be aeea from the table given above, 1
there is aa Increase over the same period
of last year of about kl.OOO head.
A fair proportion of tbe arrivals thl
reek has consisted of beef steers. Tba de
mand was fully equal to the supply, so
that each day offering waa picked up la
good season. There was not very much
change In ths prions paid, but if anything
the medium kinds of cattle such aa sell
from to 85.50 arc a little higher. In
most cases, however, the advance would
be covered by lOtBlic The better grades
have been strong all ths week, but they
could not be ouoted much if any higher.
Th hulk of tbe cattle being offered are
selling tram (5.00 to 85.75, whue the choicer
grades ara going front 15.7s to 3C25 and
something sirteuy prim might sell jp to
There ba keen a lively cow market her
all this week. The better grades, in par
ticular, have sold well, and anything good
enough to bring tt.00 or better has been la
big demand.. Aa high ae 85 80 has been
paid for cows, anils individual heifers have
sold up to 8500. The market thla week
has been at the high point of the season,
and lr fact at the highest point reached
tn a good many years. As is apt to be tbe
case under such circumstances, the market
has been rather uneven. Soma sales look a
good deal higher than the aame kinds
brought a week ago, whils others do not
show so much change It Is safe to say,
however, that the marckt 1 strong and
active for the week.
Bulls are selling 1 about tbe sam
notches they were a week ago. There ta
new quite a strong demand for stock bulls
weighing around 7u0 or HoO pounds. Tha
good to choice packer bulls are still sell
ing from t4.0l to, Veal calve are fully
Bteady for the week, as high aa 87-00 hav
ing been paid this week. Slag are also
about sieatly.
The stocker and feeder trade ha been
ta good shape ail ths week. There Is a
good demand for all weights provided the
quality la satisfactory. Commoa kinds,
however, are neglected, ae matter whether
tbey are light sr heavy. A compared with
the close of suat week there is not very
much change in ruling quotations.
HOGS There was not a particularly
heavy run of hogs here today, so that ths
market held up in fairly good snap. The
ajoality of th offerings was net as good
today as tt was yesterday, so that th
market oa paper looks lower thsa it really
waa. The belter grades sold sieady to a
shade easier, while the leas deairable
grades sold as much aa a nickel lower. Tbe
first part of ths market was fairly active
and the bulk of the ofierlngs was disposed
of In good season. As usual, however, the
tight atuS was neglected and left until the
last, and aa packers wera not at all anx
ious for that claas of hogs the market
closed slow and weak, lite bulk of ths
hogs today Bold from 88-00 te t&lk. Heavy
weights went from t10 to 8V2&, medium
weights from 8S.WI to 84.10, and light stuff
from 8 00. down.
The supply of hogs for the week ha
not been muck dl ft erect -from last week,
but much heavier than tor tbe same week
of laat year. Tbe increase for the year
te date over last year amounts to ever
75.000 head. Ths market on ins average has
been higher than It waa laat asek. Monday
started la with aa advance of about a
tflme. but by Wednesday It was all lost
and snore, .too. The week, however, closed
by 10c higher than th doe (it last week.
