pending the sttlement. The king' speech
at the dpenlng of Parliament Monday 1
awaited with Interest, especially among
trader ln Kaffirs, who are suffering from
depression and fears of difficulties in re
gard to the carry-over. Consols were fairly
steady at the lower level. Home rails were
sustained by the announcement of a work
ing arrangement between the Northwest
ern and Midland railroads, whose stocks
grew firmer. Americans opened dull on the
prospect of a bad New York bank state
ment, rallied to slightly over parity on
rsew iora uuying orders and closed steady.

A hinted above, tn break this week
was du entirely to th flooding of - th
market with unrlnlahd dock, contrary to
th advice of every one. Shippers hav
been warned almost every day of late In
tne columns, a well a by utter irom
thalr commission men not to ship in any
thing until it wa well finished tor mar
ket. Still In their anxiety to empty their
feed lota they ar shipping In a lot o
tuff which has to b sold at a sacrifice
and which not only break the market on
It own kind, but also weaken th market
on the good grade a well. Th trouble
cm to b du to th fact that ther ar
a larse number of new feeder who Imagine
their sheep ar finished and wno snip
them to market long be for thsy ar ready.
It I a very difficult matter for a man to
Judge of hi own sheep whlU they are at
home wher there la nothing with which
they can be compared. A an initanc ot
thl, a feeder who wa her l.'tst Monday
and saw the ewes that broujht $6.40, tha
tlneat bunch that na been hero tin year,
aid that hi stuff at home wa
lust aa good, but when they arrived
here yesterday, they were not fat enough
for the packers and ao nad to go to a
feeder huver at 14 KO.
In spite of the decline noted above, this
market is still well ln line with all others.
In fact. South Omaha ha been the nign
market for some tlm back owing to the
efforts put forth here to prevent snippers
