CHICAGO, Sept. . near weather In the
northwest was the ctnrf reasons for a
somewhat t-asy lone in the wtieal market
here, today. At the close wneat for Dec-ember
delivery was off Vc. Corn is oft
V- Oats ape practically unchanged, Pro
visions are a shade lower to TSu""-' higher.
The wheat market opened easier, with
December off a shade to Vgc. Dry
weather throughout Minnesota and the l'a
koiaa was the main cause of the initial de
clines. As a I'-suit of Improved weather
conditions It was claimed that arrivals of
new wneat at Minneapolis on Wednesday
would show an enormous Increase. Coin-
mission hounes later became quite active
purchasers. In consequence the markcj, f or
a time showed considerable firmness. De
cember advanced to Mc. The principal
source of strength lay In large export bus
iness reported at the seaboard. Another
bullish influence was continued demand
from millers for cash wheat. The market
Suon yielded to persistent offerings from
pit traders, prices selling bark to about the
opening level. The Michigan crop report
wa a bearish factor In the reaction. The
wheat yield of that state Is estimated at
lS.orO.OOO bushels, as aralnst .0oii)0 bushels
last year. The market closed easy, with
December at 82Hc. Clearances of wheat
and flour were equal to 335.000 bushels. Pri
mary receipts were 91S.(i0 bushels, com
pared with 91R.00O bushels a year ago. Min
neapolis, Duluth and Chicago reported re
ceipts of 5" cars, against 469 cars last
week and 332 cars a tear ago.
Sentiment In the corn pit was bearish as
a result largely of the excellent weather
for the maturing of the crop. Trading was
very quiet. At the close prices were at the
lowest point of the day. December opened
unchanged to c lower at 4S'Q4.T'c. sold
off to 4So and closed at the bottom. Iocal
receipts were 4j9 cars, with 2o6 cars of con
A liberal Increase In local receipts caused
some weakness In the oats market. Mod
erate purchases of May by a prominent
commission house prevented any material
decline In prices. December opened MiW'mC
lower to 27',fi 27c, sold up to 27c and
closed at 27. Local receipts were 336

CAII1.K-As usual on the last uay of me
Week there was noliiing ot any Importance
on the sale, me maraet being piauiiuauy
pare 01 supplies 01 all Kinds.
This has urea a, week of large receipts,
the total fur the six days looting uu
6,748 head more than last week and 10,9iv
head in excess 01 tne recoid tor tne cor
responding week a year ago. While the
big end of the receipts has consisted 01
western rangers as usual at this season,
there has been uuite a sprinkling of cattle
trom tue feed, lots and pastures 01' tne corn
The market on beef steers has been in
very sailatactory condition all the week.
Corn fed steers ot desirable quality have
been auoted as at least steady every day
this week and occasionally strong. Good
weit-nnisned loads nave sold up to fu.w.
While range steers were quoted a little
slow and weak one day the market was
stronger again, and at the close of the
week it would not be an easy matter to
point out any material difference -between
prices now prevailing and Uione 01 a week
The tendency ot the market on cows and
heifers has been toward a lower basis,
still the changes in the market from day
to day have not been very noticeable. On
Monday the market was quoted as weak
to lower, on Tuesday strong, on Wednesday
and Thursday easier and 011 Friday steady.
Taking the week as a wnoie tne market is
not oyer 10.15c lower.
There has been good active demand all
the week for feeders having weight and
good flesh and good to choice cuttle of
that description have been steady to strong
every day. On the other hand cattle, even
if good, but lacking flesh and light and
thin, as well as common stockers and feed
ers have been slow sale and are 204j30o
lower than a week ago.

HOGS Today's trade on hogs was a good
deal like yesterday's markui, that is it
opened up a utile Deuer, witn prospects
for a hlgner market and then turned out a
disappointment. As waa the case yesterday
morning ouyers picaeu out ine light loads
paying prices that looked a litliu higher
dot the trade was not active and it waa
slow work unloading. After the belter loads
were disposed of tne market slowed dowu
and became very dull and weak on heavy
packing hogs. As a whole the market did
nut enow much change, the hogs selling In
about the same notches as yesterday.
The hog market lias Deen decidedly un
satisfactory this week and still the change
in nrloea has been very small. On Tuesday
ami Wednesday the market waa quoted
generally 6c lower for each day and every
other day of the week It was slow and
easier. In fact dullness has been the chluf
feature of the market for some days bank
and still at the close of the week prices are
on an average, only about 10a lower than
they were at the close of last week. Heavy
nacklna hots have been the hardest to sell
and have been neglected to such an extent
on some days that It waa almost Impossible
for holders to unload. Late arrivals at the
yards have been especially hard to sell as
the market waa closed dull and easier al
most every day and anything arriving late
was almost certain to sell lower than tha

SHEEP There were only Ave cars here
this morning and one of them was direct
to a packer, so that there' was not enouxh
of any one thing on sale to make a teat
of the market or eatablish quotations.
Receipts of sheep have been large this
week, over 50.uu0 head having arrived at
the yards during the sis days, as will be
noted from the table of comparative
figures. In round numbers this Is a gain
over last week of 12. mO head and a gain
over a year ago of IO.iuO head.
The market this week has not been
exactly to the liking of sellers, for the
very good reason that price hav ben on
the down grade. The market started out
on Monday steady, but on Tueaday there
was a weakening all along the line. On
Wednesday la market received iu black
eye. After twenty-four hours of steady
rain the sheep arrived thoroughly wet and
In no shape t.. sell So thst the market
as the ouilest and deail.-sl that It has
been ai this point In a long time, In ad
dition to being lower, t n Thursday and
Friday values remained Just about steady
t the decline. Now, st the close of the
week, sheep are all of 2o lower than they
were a week ago and lambs are 214400
lower. Otoer markets have s iffcred In
about the same proportion, the break In
prices not being confined to this point by
Feeding sheep and lambs at the close of
the week are l.n-oc lower than a week ago,
the decline being due to the hresl on fat
stuff. With prices on feeders so high, It
Is only natural that the market should
follow down the fat sheep market. While
there Is a oierv large dcinnnd for feeders,
buyers feel that thev are pmlng high
prices and so long as they fe. that w.v
they may be depended upon to take anv
advantage of favorable conditions to force
values to a lower level.
