Market la Lifeless. Everyone Still
Showing Indifference.
NEW YORK, May g. The almost lifeless
condition of today's stock market reflected
the continued Indlfferencea of all classes.
The demand for the public utilities aeemed
due to covering of short contracta by bears.
who hoped for a decline as a result of the
establishment of the franchise tax. The
renewed rise In the silver market started
the National Railroad of Mexico stocks up
ward again and smelting stocks were
slightly benefited from the same cause
Pennsylvania's net earnlnga for March
were a disappointment, the gain In the
grosa for the lines east of Pittsburg and
Erie being practically wiped out by the
operating expenses, while for the lines west
of Pittsburg a aubstantlal net decrease was
shown. Olflclal expressions of a hope that
future statements would make a better
showing Induced some buying of the stock.
The Improved weather conditions served to
relieve apprehension over the effect on the
cropa. although the newa from the west
was of considerable damaxe bv frost. Soma
pront-iaxing was in evidence before the
appearance of the bank statement and the
level ot pricea fell below laat night all
around, when tha statement waa published.
The expecledly large loan expansion kept
even pace with the Increase In the re
sources by reason of cash recelpta. ao that
the change In the aurplua reaerve Item waa
merely nominal. The large demand for
loans Is believed to be due to the week's
payment ot the excise taxea In New York
and to a transfer of loan obligations from
foreign lenders to the local market. The
selling movement was not pursued and the
market steadied before the close, which
was, however, nearly stagnant.
United Statta new 4s advanced per cent,
aa compared with the cloalng call of laat
week. t

Never before In tbe history of American mining has so much public Interest beeu
taken and expressed as la Thunder Mountain, Idaho Igt'Ographloally described by Wil
liam Allen White, In a recent Isaue of the "Saturday Evening Tost." as "The Pot of
Oold") And never before has such an opportuity been oflered as now presented by
which In the strictest and broadest acuse la s legitimate Investment not a mere pros
pect. The property consists of ten full mining claims (208 acres) Immediately ad
Joining the great "Dewey" mine, whose fabulous richness thn most skeptical dare not
deny. Stock In the "Dewey" (original par value ll.O(i), Is now held at $8.00 per sharf .
and none for sale. The "South Dewey" being located on theeatne great lodge, nnd ad
joining the "Dewey," known throughout the district aa the "Dewey" dyke and having
the eame ore body, can Justly claim to equal, if not surpass In valuo the original
"Dewey" (when the same amount of development work baa been done) sluce It la
one-third larger In area. The ore Is free milling and assays kn averaKO of J6.ll to
the ton. with occasional pockets running very much hiahpr. Low grade, free milling
ores are the moat permanent as well as the most profitable, for the reason that they
can be converted Into bullion at a cost of fl to 11.60 per ton. To continue the devel
opment work already done, as well as to purchase the necessary machinery for thor
oughly equipping the property, we have decided to place a limited amount of Treas.
ury Stock on sale at 10 centa per share. The first ten stamp Installment of our hun
dred stamp will be shipped Aug. 15, 1403. and we feel fully warranted In believing that
we can earn dividends within 30 days from the time our mill Is running. We own the
property outright. There are no salaried officers. The stock (par value II. 001 la
non-assessable, with no personal liability. The present allotment now offered at 10
centa will be advanced from time to time, as may be decided upon by the Board of
The time to make money In any enterprise la between Its organization and Its first

CATTLE There were only a few cattle
In the yards this morning, so a test of the
market waa not made. Receipts for the
week, however have been -ery liberal, aa
there la an Increase over last week amount
ing to 1.000, and as compared -sitn the same
week of last .year the gain amounts to
about 8,000 heatf. The demand, though, haa
been brisk most all the week, and prices
have held up In a very satisfactory manner.
Beef steers made up the bulk of the re
ceipts and the quality was good. Com
paratively few short fed cattle arrived,
nearly all of them being well fattened
cattle. Owing to liberal recelpta packers
pounded the market on Tuesday In rather
bad ahape. but since that time the general
tendency haa been upward, so the lose of
Tuesday haa been Just about regained,
leaving prices In the aame notchea they
were on Monday. There has been some
uneveness to the trade irA yesterday it
waa noticed that packers did not take hold
of the heavy cattle aa freely as they did
of the medium weights, and some sales
men are calling heavy cattle lust a lltt'.o
lower than Monday. The bulk of the
cattle romlng forward are selling from
34.60 to 34 f6. with the better grades selling
largely from 34.90 to 35. 10. A strictly prime
bunch, though, would undoubtedly bring
considerably more than that.
The cow market haa followed much the
aame course as the prices on steers. Tues
day there waa a sharp decline, but the
loss haa since been regained and the de
mand for the better grades seems to be In
Very satisfactory condition. Cannera and
cutters have been more or less neglected for
some time past. Cannera and common cut
ters are selling largely from 32 26 to 3326;
fair to good cows, S3 25 to $3 90, and the
better Frades from 34.00 to 34.40.
Good handy welarht bulls have been sell
ing freely all the week at atrong pricea, but
the heavv welehte have Bold rather un
evenly. The fair to good bulls sell largelv
from S3 00 to 33.75. and the better grades
from 33.76 to 34.10. Veal calves have been I
In brisk demand and best grades sell as
hlrh as 16.75.
The atocker and feeder market naa not
no Improvement In either the demand or
prices hHS been noted.
