The range o? prlcss paid in Kansas City
as reported by the Edwards-Wood com
pany, 110-111 Board of Trade building, was:
CATTLE As usual on, the last day of
the week, there were no cattle of any con
sequence In sight. Aside from the feeder
division, where there were a few cattle
in the hands of speculators, the yards
wets empty and deserted.
The receipts of cattle have been very
heavy this week; In fact, the heaviest of
the year so far, and way in excess of the
records of a week ago and a year ago.
Under the Influence of the large runs
and excessive supply the market on west
ern grass beeves has gradually sagged
from Its own weight and at the close of
the week is safely l?i2uo lower than one
week ago. The decline has been on the
medium kinds principally, which consti
tute the big bulk of the receipts. Strictly
choice range beeves have been scarce all
the week and they have not shown much
change In prices. Corn-fed "Steers of good
Quality have also been In very moderate
sunnlv and for that reason they have re-
mninerf lust about steady all the week.
The common to medium kinds, which
would be affected by the break on grass-
ers. would have to be quoted a little
Cows and heifers have suffered the most
decline of anything during the week, it
seemed as If a larger proportion of the
receipts than usual consisted of that kind
nt cattle, and while buyers bought freely.
they were rilled up and the market grad
ually worked downward. At the close of
the week the general market on cows
and heifers is all of lSii.Mro lower and in
extreme cases perhaps 25c lower than it
was at the close of last week.
Stockers and feeders have been In very
larse supply all the week, but the demand
has also been large, so that the market
has been in a good, healthy condition
from start to finish. Prices on desirable
kinds are fully steady with a week ago,
Even light cattle. If of good quality, have
been about steady, but common, little
knotheads are a Jittle lower, owing to the
fact that there have been a good many

HOGS Receipts this morning were only
moderate, the" same as every other day of
late, and the total for the week as will be
noted from the figures iven above Is small
but still about on a par with previous weeks
though smaller than a year ago. That Is
not all, present prospects would appear to
favor the belief that receipts will continue
small at fhls point for another thirty or
Under the influence of the moderate run
this morning heavy hogs which have been
selling In pretty low notches all tho week
advanced 6 -it 10c and the ntarkwt was active
so that a clearance was made for the first
time In some days. Light bogs which have
shown very little change during the week,
that Is remaining about stationary while
heavy weights were breaking, did not par
ticipate In the advance this morning. Most
of the heavy hogs went at 14.956.10 while
light hogs sold, on tip as high as 15.25.
The hog market has been in very unsatis
factory condition this week. Packers claim
that at the ruling prices for provisions,
live hogs ought to be selling on the basis
of 84 60 at Chicago. That they believe what
they say Is shown by their meager pur
chases at all packing points. Were it not
for the support given the market by ship
pers and buyers for the fresh meat trade
there Is no doubt but what prices would
drop down very rapidly. As It is ths good
fresh meat trade in connection with the
light receipts Is preventing packers from
getting prices down to a point where they
would like to see them. So long as packers
feel that the market Is too high they are
not likely to be free buyers at any point
and the result Is almost certain to be
a dull and unsatisfactory market from day
to day. After all the pounding that the
market has experienced this week prices on
an average are only about &fg7co lower than
a week ago.
