Joseph A. Connor, an old-timer In the

serts that he himself has 4,000 acres that
will yield 4S bushels to the acre, and that
It is sale from damage by frost.
Wired to Exchange Grain company from
Ottawa: Minister of the Interior Clifford
Slfton aays: The reporta of Injury by frost

and figure average of thirteen bushels,

so that our estimate of uuu.Ouu appears to
have been conservative. We find milling
quality most satisfactory.
George A. Adams company says: C. H.
Thornton aays in Uuluth Commercial Record-
"The three northwestern states have
raised 150,000,000 bushels wheat, a shortage
of Ju.OUO.OOO to 35,io,iOO bushels compar d
with the crop of 19U3 In milling value. Ex
haustive mill tests have demonstrated that
five to five and one-half bushels of average
mixture are required to make a barrel of
flour, making the milling value short of any
like quantity ever raised In this country."
Edwards-Wood Co.: London is fraction

that the improved demands in the latter

Failure" of foreign grain markets to re

in adlltir)n. there w.is some selling on a
denial of the rumor that the French gov

An Bdvance of over 3c in the price of

NEW YORK. Sept. 24 The surmise
which has been seeking for weeks an ex-
f lunation of the persistent strength of
nion Pacific lighted today on an alleged
purchase In Union Pacific Interest of sev
eral hundred thousand shares of Atchison,
thus insuring it an influential voice in
Atchison aflairs and strengthening Its con
trol of the whole transcontinental railroad
situation. It must be said for this rumor
that there was better authority for the
credence attached to It than for some of
the many others and the saecing tendency
of the stock on the report did not shake
the faith of Its believers. The heaviness
of Union Pacific was attributed to profit
taking by the speculator- who had fol
lowed the movement and the decline
showed no signs of precipitation. The most
decided effect was caused to the Atchison,
which made a rather aggressive advance,
especially the preferred, which was un
The United States Steel stocks also de
veloped great strength without special
news. The details of the August exports
showed some very heavy declines In values
for Iron and steel, compared with July,
but the buyers of the steel claimed to have
encouraging advices of progress In the re
vival In the trade.
The general list was decidedly neglected
and moved narrowly, and not more than
was accounted for by slight sympathy
with the special strong stocks. The bank
statement offered no great surprises. A loan
contraction was not unexpected, but It was
not as large as was hoped for and was not
sufficient to prevent a further substantial
depletion of the surplus reserve. Transfer
of loans from banks to trust companies
is known to have been made to a large
extent, which is a process that does not
affect the actual volume of credits nor the
ultimate reserve obligations upon the New
York banks. The maxktt closed scightly
irregular with a few fresh advances Just

LONDON, Sept. 24. MONEY It was dif
ficult to maintain discount rates In the
market today In clew of the large supply
of money. Business on the stock exchange
was dull In consequence of the sluggish
ness of funds, the political uncertainty and
the nearness of the settlement. Consols
were steady and home rails hardened. The
changes were mostly nominal on either
side of parity. Prices eased slightly later
on realisations snd closed quiet. Grand
Trunk was harder on satisfactory 1 10 fTi c
returns. Imperiul Japanese government
sizes of 19(i were quoted at K 14s., Kaf

CAllLE A few cars ol cattle were re
porteu this morning, out not enough were
on baie to make a maxaei. For trie week
receipts snow au lncreaye over Ihm wee
oi auout ,''0 hcao, Put aa compared Kn
the same week 01 lata year there is bii.i
a decreasu, me loss amounting to about
3,0J head. Tne receipts were well distrib
uted Uirougn the weeK, wlin excepiion ot
Fiiuay, wnen there was a b.g laiung oft.
ihe t&bie aoove will Bhow toe exact lig
ures tor each day lu cattle, hogs and
Corn-fed steers have been in light sup
ply all the week and with a gooo demand
the market has ruied active 011 deairabie
grades and prices sieady to strong. Hal,
lat kinds, or thote mat come in comjieU'
tion with weaterns, have not been sought
after particularly, but still even uiuue
have sold to as good advantage as they
old a week ego. Good to choice grades aie
quotable trorn 85.au to t6.cs. tan to goo4
e.iw to t5.5v and the shorter fed catiie
irom 84.75 down.
Western rangers have made up the big
bulk of the otierings all the week iind a
large proportion 01 them have been fat
enough for killers. The demand on most
days was fully equal to the supply and, in
fact, the more desirable grades are a little
stronger for the week, some sales showing
an advance of as much as KKijloc. The top
price ot the week was 84.W,. The com
moner kinds of westerns are no more than
steady for the week, as there were a good
many of that class on sale. Good to choice
cattle are quotable from 83.75 to 84 25. with
strictly prime from. H 25 to t4.75. .Fair to
good cattle sell from S3.n to t3.5o and com
mon stuff from 83.00 down.
Receipts of cows have also been liberal
most 01 the week, but the market held up
in very satisfactory' manner the greater
part 01 the time. Receipts were made up
almost entirely of western rangers, so few
corn feds being received that it is hard
to quote a market on them. Corn fed
cows, though, would probably sell from
88.00 to 8S.5o and prime heifers would rench
84.00. The market on western grassers is
a little uneven for the week, with the ten.
dency downward rather than otherwise.
The general market could probably be
quoted weak to luc lower than at the
close of lan week. Some of the choicest
grades have sold about steady, while other
have been lower, and the same is true of
canners. The weakness Is rnort noticeable
on the medium kinds. Good to choice grass
cows may be quoted from t2.75 to 83. tO.
with prime ones a little above thnt. Fair
to good cows sell from 82 50 to 82.75 and
canners and cutters largely from tl-75 to
Dulls have not shown much chanere dur
ing the week, most of the offerings being
western rnngers. They sell largely from
tl 75 to t2 6". while corn-feds wouil bring
P. 25 or better. Top on veal calves 1s gr. Di.
or the same an a week ago. Packers
steadfastly refuse to pay more th&n that
for the be-st calf made.
The best feee'rr fade of the season, so
fr.r. was exricrlenced this week. Buyers
were on hand in large numbers and the
trade assumed some ol the activity of for
mer years. Good heavy cattle were In the
beat d'-maYid snd such kinds sold out of
first hands KTMOc higher than at the close
of Inst week, out speculators claimed that
on Friday and himirday thev had to mnke
big reductions In order to dispose of their
holdings to country buyers. Medium weight
cattle and light cattle, particularly If of
common quality, have be-en hard to move
all the week, and such kinds are no more
than steady and In some cases lower.
Good to choice heavy cattle may be quoted
from S3. SO to t4.'0; fair to good, 52 25 to
83 50. snd common stuff, from 83.00 down.

HOGS Th"re was a small run of hogs
here this morning, even for a Saturday,
tnd as the demand for light and butcher
weights was ss brisk as ever, the market
opened active on that class and strong to
a nickel higher. After the more desirable
loads were picked pp. however, the market
slowed down, and packers would not give
over Heady prices for the heavies, and
some of the buyers were trying to buy
them lower. As a result, trading was rather
Slow, but prices were just about steadv
with yetterdsy. Even the lighter weights
on the close lost the early advance. Heavy
hogs sold largely from 85.65 to S6.75. me.

For the week receipts show a slight loss,
as compared with last week, the decrease
amounting to about 4,000 head. As com
pared with the same week of last year,
however, there Is a giin of about lo.Ooo
head. Prices have fluctuated tip snd down
a little, but the tendency has been upward,
and a net gain for the week of about
20c Is noted. This, in fact, has been the
tilth week of the season. Representative

on that class of orern.gs can be quoted
sieauy. with tlie close ot Inet week. Trnd
Ing on most dts was quite brisk, good
clearances being made of deslrsiiie grades.
A large proportion of the offerings has
consisted of lambs, snd a god many of
them wre fat enough for klilrrs.
The gvner.il tendency cf vulues whs
downward, and prices for the srek show s
net loss rf I64i.c. The good kinds have
suiTcud as we.l as the common, sxi that it
would not take a strictly prime bunch of
westerns to bring to. Natives, however,
have sold up to 85.35
The demand for feeders has been brisk
sll the week, and feeder aheep may te
quoted steady. Feeder lambs. however,
have suffered In sympathy with the decline
on killers, and may be quoK-d P'iilic lower.
