Fairly Firm Gossip,
OMAHA, September 17. 104.
It was one of thot,e rare bear days In the
hest market that have been sesreer than
the proverbial hen's teeth for many weeks.
It whs a en He of noil the stuff from the
opening until the clone unrelieved by any
upasm of strength. Liverpool started the
raid with lvd decline, It wss Inspired by
the weakness of American markets yester
day and wan further actuated on the Chl
i'0 and other leading speculative markets
by a rush of liquidation on the part of the
great army of longs; traders that have
made fortunes on the bull side of wheat
and anxious to get out with as large profits
aa possible. Primarily the weather man
was the rnVU important factor In the whole
nltuatlon. Sunshine and warmer nights not
only assure the safety of the grent corn
crop, but It Increases probable yield from
northern wheat states where the harvest la
now going on and where threshing needs
just auch weather. The change Is certain
to he of great value to Nebraska and the
west If this weather will continue with us
for two weeks the great corn crop will be
past danger. It wa the first day for many
moons that the buyers of puts on the Chi
cago market foutnd matters turning In their
favor and as a consequence the first that
the sellers have found Ihe market against
them. Much of the buying; of the short
session was for the account of buyers of
puts who were making deliveries freely.
The opening prices were In all cases the
highest. The declines In wheat averaged
nearly 4 points In all futures, and there was
little disposition on the part of the sellers
to cover though the fact that It waa Satur
day Induced some late covering, but even
this did not stem the downward tide. Sep
tember future sold In Chicago at I1.MN4 to
$1.07; December at 11.13 to $1.09 and May
from $1,144 to $1.11.
-The heavy selling of the day was an ex
cellent thing for the future of the market.
The steady and long continued advance haa
been the means of cutting off short selling
and left the market one-sided and with
everybody waiting for the sign of weaken
ing to get out The sign came early this
morning and the rush of sellers was like
the rush to Bonesteel. Tho bears have been
waiting for Just such an opportunity to
sell and they took courage and went after
prices hard. The result Is a two-sided
In Omaha cash prices were easier but
still tempting to holders of wheat: No. i
hard sold at $1.06 ird high Rrsde No. 3 at

Corn was soft and there was n general
decline but oats held relatively steady.
Thero was an excellent demand for the
latter and this checked any decline. Corn

A. H. Farnum Our agent at Bostolt-on-Loon,
Russia, reports that shippers uru
busy executing enormous sales of wheat
for autumn shipment. Brucmhall em
metes the world's shipments of wheat text
Monday will amount to about lu.Ouu.uuo
bushels, about the same as last week.
Up to this time Chicago firms have,
bought between I.OOO.OUO and 2,000.000 bushels
of wheat, to come from Idaho. Minneapolis
must also have bought a good deal more,
of this wheat. How long this movenum
will last Is a question, aa it does not seem
possible that the "Pacific coast millers can
afford to allow a very large volume of
wheat to cume this way.
Kdwards. Wood & Co.'s advices say:
Thore was considerable .pressure from the
bear element In oorn because of the better
weather and the opinion that corn had
escaped material loss from front. The
short Interests have been materially en
larged and the market is In a healthier con
dition.. Pork products are Inclined to firm
ness and to advance. This Is most notice
able In January deliveries. There Is bull
sentiment developing which Is baaed on a
stronger cash deniund for home and for
eign account, light receipts and a small
country supply. Minneapolis says the lute
weakness In whest caused millers to put
down the prices of flour a little. This de
cline brought In a much better demand
from domestic flour buyers. Shipping or
ders are also coming In much better and
it will be noted by the Increase In flour
shipments and the output of the mills for

NEW YORK, Sept 17.-Prlces of stocks
underwent a anarp reaction again tooay,
under the combined Influence of an unfa
vorable bank statement and apprehension
OI crop aamnge. ine nonaay in ine Lain
dnn market was also an Influence, as ope
rations for London account have been of
some Importance for a number or days.
The news regarding the crops was not
discouraging, warmer weather being the
rule. The grain markets were reactionary,
but the highly speculative conditions In
those markets made Wall street somewhat
suspicious of them as a reliable Index of
real conditions. The selling of stocks was
morn due to fesrs of possible developments
regarding the crops during the Sunday In
terval not now foreseen. "St. 1'aui was tne
leader of the decline, but the other Grang
ers and Vactflrs were not far behind. The
break In Reading was of large Influence, as
early attempts were made to advance the
price on the score of the favorsble annual
report. Hut the evidence or important sell
ing on the advance suggested that the best
buying due to the annual showing had been
done already nnd was waiting to take prof
Its. The support of United States Steel
preferred, also proved futile.
The further $10,472,000 loan expansion,
disclosed hv - the bank statement, disap
pointed any expectation that the week's
liquidation In the stock market wss redu
cing that Item, its increase in aunuuuu
by bankers ti Interior borrowing for crop

'ihe Interior demand Is also responsible, of
course, for the further H.4l.8(io snnngage

CATTLE There were practically no fresh
receipts of cattle here this morning, so
ihar. wn no market. For the week re
ceipts show a gain over last week of about
D.WO nena ana a aecruano ui itmiui ,wv
head, as compared with the same week of
last year. Judging from the distribution
of the receipts through the week, It would
appear that shippers have followed the ad
vice of their commission men and held
back some of their supplies for the latter
end of the week. The result Is that a
much more even market has been expe
rienced for the last two weeks than for
some time past. Instead of breaking the
market the first of the week and then al
lowing it to advance the last of the week
with light receipts, prices have changed but
very lltte from day to day. Both commis
sion men and buyers are well pleased, and
they believe the plan will be a success.
The only class of cattle that cannot be sold
to crood advantage on a Frldav Is feeders.
and It would be better to ship those earlier
In the week, but killers stiouia Ben as wen
on Frldav as any other day.
The market on corn-fed steers has
changed very little all the week. Supplies
have been verv moderate, and anything at
all desirable has met with ready sale at
steady prices. Warmed-up and common
stuff has been neglected the same as usual,
but the prices have remained aoout tne
same. Good to choice grades may be
Quoted from $6.50 to S5.85, with strictly prime
as high as $6.00. Fair to good from $4.90
to $5.50, and the commoner kinds from $4,60
The market on western grass beef steers
has been active and fully steady all the
week, and some of the desirable grades may
be a little higher. The demand has been
fully equal to the supply, and each day's
offerings have been well cared for. Com
mon kinds drag to some extent, but still
even those sell to as good advantage as
they did a week ago. Good to choice grades
may be quoted from S3.75 to $4 50; fair to
good. $3.50ig-S.65; common to fair, S2.85(g3.25.
Corn-fed cows have been very scarce all
the week, but they could be quoted steady.
Choice grades would sell from $3 00 to 33.u0.
and less desirable ones from $3.00 down.
A fair sprinkling of western range cows
has been In the receipts all the week, and j
while tne better grades are only aoout
steady, the commoner kinds, mich as ean
ners and cutters, are a little higher. Ship
pers were told to hold back their common
cows during the strike, and since packers
have opened their canning departments the
supply has been short of the demand. As
compared with a week ago, they are safely
15c higher and In some cases as much as 25c
higher. Canners and cutters are quotable
from $1.75 to $2.40, fair to good grades from
$2.50 to $2.85, and good to choice ones from
$3.00 to $3.25.
Bulls, veal calves and stags are all Just
about steady for the week. Grass bulls
sell largely frorq 81.75 to $2.25 and corn
feds from $3.00 to $3.60. Veal calves sell up
There has been a good demand all the
week for choice heavy feeders, and such
kinds are steady to a dime lower than a
week ago. All others, however, are lower,
and the commoner the quality and the
llfghtcr the weight the' greater the decline.
Blockers are fully a quarter lower, nnd
where the quality Is common the decline
Is even more than that. In fact, It has
been hard to sell them at any price. At the
close of the week speculators still have
quite a few-on hand which they will have
to carrv over until next week. Good to
choice feeders are ouotable from $3.40 to
13.80. fair to good $8.00 to 83.40, and eommon
kinds from $3.00 down. Representative sales:

HOGS There was a light run of hogs
here this morning, even for a Saturday,
and prices advanced a little under the In
fluence of a good local demand and favor
able reports? from other points. The mar
ket opened fairly active on the good light
and butcher weights with prices strong to
a nickel higher. They sold largely from
$5.65 to $5.75. with a top at $5.77J. Buyers
were a little slow in taking hold of -the
heavies and they were only steady to
strong. Medium and mixed hogs were a
trifle stronger. Most of the early arrivals
were sold. In good season, but some hogs
came in lute and by that time the market
had weakened so that on the extreme close
a good share of the early advance was
lost. Medium and mixed hogs sold largely
from $5.55 to $5.66 and heavies from $6.60 to
$8 55. j
For the week receipts of hogs have
been fairly liberal for the time of year
as there Is an Increase over lust Wcek
of about 4,000 head and of a like amount
over the same week of last year. The
demand has been in pood shape, so that the
tendency of prlees has been upward and
a net gain for the week of 15c to 20o Is
noiea. Representative sales:

fresh arrivals of sheep and lambs hers this
mornlns;, so that a test of the market could
not be made. For the week receipts show
a good Increase over both last wsrk and
Ihe corresponding week of Isrt year, the
former amounting to about 26,000 head and
the latter to about 23.000 head. But even
with these liberal receipts tne marset was
,ln good shape, as the demand liom all
sources was heavy.
The better grades of sheep could safely be
qouled Just aoout steady with the close of
last week. Everything answering to thai
description has changed hands readily.
Part tat sheep have been neglected to smiie
extent and In some cases may be a trills
lower or weak to a dime lower than tliey
were at the close of last week. 'This de
cline was most noticeable on the kinds that
make neither good killers nor g.iod feeder.
La in lis have suffered quite a decline at
some of the other markets and as a result
prices have eased oft here to smne extent.
As a general thing the market may be
quoted Just about lulSc lower for the
Week. Good stAift, though-. Is In active de
mand. '1 he demand for feeders has been fully
equal to the supply all the week and prices
may be quoted steady to strong on all de
sirable grades. Something on the cull order
may be slow Sale, but uide tiom those a
ood clearance has been made nearly every
