KANSAS CITY IS A CLOSE THIRD
Vi-prlmt of Commerce Gives Out

Poaitlon of Rival
(From a Staff Corre spondent.)
WASHINGTON, July 8.-(EpectaS Tele
Itram.) For year Omaha na hoped to be
the first packing city of the United State.
For yearn, In view of condition, it has
been the. third packing center of the United
States, but for the first six month of
thli year the total receipt of live stock
at the Omnha stock yard make it the sec
ond packing center of the country, lead
ing Kansas City, It most persistent rival,
by 10,207 hend, according to statistics of
tlie Department of Commerce and Labor.
Chlcngo and the four gret market on
the MlHHourl, Including Omaha, Kansas
City, St. Louis and St. Joseph, closed the
flrit Jin If of the yenr with 16,(138,895 head
of live stock received since January 1.
I.ast year's corresponding total wm 15,
22. 661 , head, against 14,958,471 head In 1902.
Of the live stock mentioned above 7.923,-
,317 head wero credited to , Chicago, com-
nlslng 48 per cent. Omaha received 2,&n,
, 616 head,' or 1 per cent; Kansas City, 2,507,-
w 409 head, or IS per centj Bt. Louis, 2,194,884
head, or 18 per cent, and Bt. Joseph, 1,512,-
561 head, or t per cent.
In tho month of June Chicago received
neurly 1.250,OJi head of live stock. Citle
on the Missouri showed the following re
celpts: Kansis City, 412,9rj Omnha, 370,-
755 i St. Louis, 493,063; St. Joeph. 213,087.
Top prices for'lx month ending June
80 of rattle, hogs and sheep bought at Chi
CHgo averaged 15.74 per 100, a against last
year' iam perlo t of $5.58 and that of 1902
of 7.K. The abrupt lowering of price
from loe to 1903, amounting to 24 per cent,
Wa discouraging to producers. Many of
the atock growers in that period closed up
their business and retired until market
scemd more favorable. Thus far prices
for live stock are 16 cenU better than In
1903. Prices of hog for the first half of
the past three year were 15.26 in 1904, 87.04
In 1903 and 17.00 in 1902.

OMAHA. July SO. 1904.
There was a large attendance of operator
on the Grain exchange this morning and
many visitors aa well. The Interest In the
culmination of the July wheat trade waa
Intense, but there was nothing approaching
the excitement with which the May future
made Its exit. The last few minutes before
the tnp of the closing bell were watched
with anxiety, but the shorts had made
their deliveries and the longs hnd taken
the wheat, and there waa nothing more
to it. The shorts had gone to considerable
expanse and trouble to attend to their part
of the matter and the long had what
"Old Hutch'' used to call the "corpse'"
on their hands. It hardly looks well to
call whent a ded one at this time, when
the mllrers fight for it, when rust and
floods threaten and when thn authorities
have but one opinion, and that Is for higher
prices. To an unconcerned but Interested
spectator with nonspeculatlve habits It
looks very much as if the Omaha wheat
deal In the July delivery was an expensive
operation to all parties concerned, except
the brokers, the sure commission receivers.
Certainly the present prices of cash wheat
will not let the longs out. and the shipping
of wheat from Kansas City by trains run

and rushing It over the bridge tt Council

of dust out of It, In order that It may
pass muster as No. 2, is au expensive op
eration. Eight freight trains were run through
from Kansas City on express time; 2S cars
of No. 1 wheat were Included In the whent,
and they were taken over to Council Bluff
The final figures of the cash or July
wheat before tho tnp of the bell were
skiers at S7c. The wheat was sold during
the life of the trade aa high as Mc, In

CHICAGO. July !HV-Reports from the
northwest of damage by rust combined
with the anxiety of July shorts to rover
sale caused a strong lut erratic wheat
market here today. At the close Kptemler
wheat whs a shade above yest.rday s clos
ing figure. Corn Is on V'V oats are
down a shade and provisions 2Msfll&o.
Under active covering the July option
showed a gnln of about lc at tha imme
diate start, the opening quotation being
at SiMe. September was a shade lower to
h'Uc higher, at SOU'n'Wc.
The price of September was lifted to
91-e, but reacted again to 9TfcC. Mean
time July made about le advance from
the opening price. Later the demand from
shorts became so urgent that July made a
sudden rise to 1.0S. Under the Influence
of this sharp return distant dellverle'
also advanced. September selling up to
9Sc. A quick reaction, however, fo'lowed.
Renewed covering by shorts again started
July upward and final figures were at
9!'Sc September finally closed at &
Clearances of wheat and flour were equal
to Zwi.) bu. Primary receipts were t74,
li1 bu., against 622,&e0 bu. a year ago.
Minneapolis, Duluth and Chicago reportel
receipts of ?i2 enrs. compared with 270
cars last week and 249 cms a year ago.
, In sympathy with the strength of
wheat a firm tone was manifested In the
corn market. September opened un
changed to a shade higher, at 4c to 49-
4r4!tc, sold between 4a'c and 4Vc and
closed at 49''4fiH9Sc. Local recelpta were
201 cars, with 19 of contract grade.
A small flurry in Jult Immediately after
the opening was the feature of trading In
oats. The market showed an Inclination
to follow corn. Septemlver opened a shade
lower st S3Vc, sold between 3;tic and 33Hc
and closed at the low point. Local receipt
were 120 cars.
Provisions were easy on selling for out
side account and on a lack of support
from packers. A weak hog market had a
depressing Influence. The market closed
near the low point, with September pork
down 12Hj-15e, at 12.92H& 12 .95. Lard was
off 2V4iOc, at ty.00ffr7.P2H. Ribs were down

CATTLE The situation remains practi
cally unchanged, although there is a slight
increase in the capaolty of the different
houses. Most too many cattle reached tho
market yesterday for the good of the trade
and prices broke sharply at all markets.
The week finishes with little Improvement
In the general condition surrounding the
beef cnttlo market, n.i packers are yet un
able to handle anywhere near the normal
number of-beef steers. The bad break yes
terday is followed by a dull market today,
with little of consequence on sale. Values
on beef steers are KXwMo lower than ear
lier In the week.
Butcher stock fared little If any better
thun beef steers. The market broke lO015o
yesterday on the few saleable kinds of
cows and heifers, and canning and coarse
lots are not wanted at nil. The movement
continues small, with capacity for handling
not so very much Increused.
The feeder trade continues dull and wenk.
Only a few arrived this week and the
country demand Is very limited. The de
pression in fnt cattle has exerted more or
less Influence on the feeder market and
trade has ruled extremely dull and unsatis
factory ever since the labor trouble began.

HOC1S A further decline in prices on
hogs Is noted again today, besides the
trade una rather dull. Packers had small
orders to fill, but demanded reduced figure,
and shipper were also on th bear sue
of the deal. The market Is not at all Fatls
tactory, owing to the uncertainty attending
llii ye ra were alow and besides were more
particular than usual In selecting their
droves. This condition of affairs resulted
In an uneven, unsatisfactory market; be
sides, buyers were more Indifferent than
usual. The market was Irregularly lower,
but as a rule mostly a nickel off, except on
fancy grades. Occasional sales, of cnolco
lots were quoted not much If any lower,
but as a rule prices were off, as noted.
Receipts at all markets the past two or
three days have been considerably in excess
of the demand,, owing to the strike trouble,
and shippers4 should keep close watch of
tne situation at 1111 times.,
