on the Stock exchange was quiet but mod

of Japanese Imparted steadiness. Consols
at the opening hardened fractionally, but
eased later. Americans opened weak, but
the recent lower level Induced fresh buy

caused a hardening all around. Prices
closed firm. Japanese was the most active

CATTLE There were no cattle here to
day to make a test of the market. The
receipts for the week show a slight de
crease as compared with) last week and
Ulte a substantial gain as compared who
he same week last year. About one-hulf
of the offerings were corn-feds of only
fair quality, many of the cattle being ot
the half fat, warmed up order.
Although there was a snarp Drcaa m
prices at eastern points, the market here
for the week shows up very satisfactorily.
The steer trade has been good and prices
for the most part flowed steadily up
ward. There was a gooa, strong twrnuin
from all sources for supplies and the
cattle were cleaned up in good shape
nearly every day. The market on native
cattle was uneven, advancing then de
clining until today, when prices for the
week ruled generally sieaoy wun iasi r n-
,i.u Western were In better demand ana
show up better for the week, prices being
a good 10fo'16c higher than the close of j
last week. On the commoner gTaUe ln
market was Just about ateady.
The cow and heifer trade lor me weea
was very satisfactory, a good, strong de
mand prevailing nearly every day and
considerable activity being a feature of
the trade. Buyers were after cattle and
conditions favored selling interests ail
along. Prices on the good kinds were lu
16c Higher, wnue common graues wen
Bulls, veal calves ana stags were jusi
about steady with the close of last week
and there was a fair demand for the stuff.
Stockers and feeders continue in strong
demand and the market for the week
shows considerable Improvement. Feeder
buyers were anxious ror cattle an tne
week and there were plenty of orders to
be filled. The market on the,good, heavy
feeders was fully lo&16c higher, while the
lighter weights ana common amas were
J-ilMJb 1 lie lorty-six cars arriving tuuuy
and about thirty-four loads of hold
overs made about eighty loads on sale.
Packers were In the same bearish mood
they have been In the last couple of days
and pounded the market for another de
cline. The quality of the receipts was
fairly good. A feature or the trade that
was prominent all the week till today was
the slow and druggy trading. This was
not true of the market today, for the
trade was active and a clearance was
made in good season. The market was a
flat dime lower, wun tne iignt weights
feeling the full strength of the decline.
Heavy hogs, although lowor, sold better
than any duy this week, the prices rang
ing from $5.30 to $5.45, while on the light
weights prices were from $5.60 to $5.65.

the market opened with prices a little

week the market eased off a little and
prices were not so good, but this slight
decline was fully regained by the close of
the week and the market held Just about
steady. Aittiougn me receipts were mod
erate, there were about enough to fill the
requirements of the trade on fat stuff.
Killer sheep and lambs are selling very
well at this point and there is no complaint
to be made.
Feeder buyers have Just cause to file a
Firolest, for tne supply of feeders has been
Ight so far this season. Buyers have
plenty of orders and are anxious to till
them, but the stuff Is not coming in fast
enough to enable them to do very much.
The demand this week was good and prices
were strong to a dime higher.

CHICAGO. April 2 Even though specu
lators have Ignored favorable Industrial de
velopments In all lines, and prices have
been broken, nevertheless, even the most
conservative financial writers who are
favoring the bear side admit that only the
most dire circumstances ran ultimately ef
fect the upward trend of the market. Bear
writers have very little ground to atand
on. A fear of tight money, and the hlfth
level which stocks have now reached, arc
practically their only arguments.
One financial writer of International
merit even goes so far as to Justify his
pessimism by declaring that the time for
reaction has come because the American
people may not be trusted to continue to
elect presidents who stand for conserva
tive financial methods. This writer holds
that the great number of Immigrants pour
ing Into our country will largely Influ
ence, elections, which will result in placing
presidents with no adequate sense of con
servative financial principles In the chair.
Any reasonable reader can. of course,
see at a glance that conclusions of this
character are very far fetched: and when
financial writer of evident ability alludes
to possibilities of this character In order
to Justify his bear sentiments on the mar
ket, It becomes very evident that bear
material Is very scarce.
At times like this, when the market Is
In an agitated condition. It must not be for
gotten that prices really are at a very

should prove profitable to the senders
Every artifice Is employed to secure the
use of the public's money. Pome circu
lars agree to send out Important nd
valuable Information. Others Invite pros
pective clients to participate In the. profits
derived from Interests In pools that are
formed, and so on. Heading matter of this
flowery variety should be carefully avoided
when a selection Is made for speculation.
Trading on the exchanges has been very
heavy, and as a result of the sharp slumps
the market Is In a feverish and panlckv
condition. A ronsplclous absence of sup
port Is the material factor In the slumps
which occur Among the big operators
who were credited with bring behind the
short selling were dates. I .a v. son and
Keene. The sharp declines forred the
liquidation of big bull pools. In order to
hedge losses money on these pools went
short on the market very strongly. Fear
of higher money rates, owing to the de
mand for money from the interior for mov
ing crops, was largely restionslble for the
It was rumored about that the bank
statements will make a poor showing.
Manv of the big speculators fear that manv
of the banks will have to call loans made
to speculators. The foreign market re
flected the conditions existing here. On
Thursday morning It looked as though
nothing could stop the decline, but Just
about the hour before closing heavy buy
ing orders caused reactions. Atchison and
National Lead were the leaders. Heavy
bank Interests were rumored to be re
sponsible for this buying. Morgan and
Standard Oil Interests ore declared to have
been most active. At the present writing
short Interests are beginning to cover.
Thursday was one t,f those freak days
which put to flight all the axioms of suc
cessful trading Favorable and bullish
factors were absolutely Ignored. Those,
who are working on the short side of the
market had all the best of the sentiment.
At this particular time the market Is
In a nervous excitable condition, but thn
fact cannot be gainsaid that the general
outlook and the preponderance of statisti
cal facts with relation to improved condi
tions are all in favor of higher prices.
It Is a good sign, however, that the pub
lic Is not so easllv enticed Into the market
as In the past. The smaller Industrial or
ganisations with which I am constantly
In touch are receiving splendid support, and
are securing good values for their securi
ties There are three or tour institutions
In the middle west that are Inviting capital
Into their enterprises that report that tho
Improvement within the last thirty days
was much more than had ever been ex
pected. It shows that the public Is a
willing Investor In enterprlies which are
safe, conservative and mtrltorloua.

BOSTON. Sept. 2 WOOI. The Boston
Commercial Bulletin has this to say of
thn wpol market: While the volume of
sales has nut bcei) us great as that of the
last week, the market Is very strong and
some large lines of territory wools, princi
pally Montana arid Wyoming, have been
transferred at full prices. Fleeces are
quiet, but a good sized lot moved the last
part of lust week at a figure slightly under
that quoted by the large dealers ln fleece
wools. Pulled wools are selling well when
snlluble offerings can be obtained. It I,
the opinion of wool dealers and bankers
that peace between Russia and Janau will
be a great lenfllt to the wool trade, rather
than a check. They say that the mills will
return to their former uc tlvlty and will
consequently require more wool. Contract
ing for i'xni is being done In Utah, Wyoming
utid Idaho, with the rirospects of the former
state he'ng well sold ahead at 2fa22c. The
plilumcntH of wool from Huston to date
from December 29, 1H.4, according to the
same authority, are 16.Li.582,644 lbs., against
148.279,168 at the same time lust year. The
receipts to date are 267.731.1S4 lbs., against
