The fresh receipts this morning ss usual on a Saturday were extremely light In conse quence of which there was not enough of anything on sole today to be worth (pioltng. Heavy receipts have been a characteristic of this week's cattle trade. The total ar rive without exception ure the heaviest for any week so far this year. As will be. noted from the table of receipts published at the head of this column, there was a largo gain over the previous week and a slill larger gain over the corresponding week of a year ago. Another feature of the week's trade la the large number of beef steers coming forward to market. While there are 110 figure from which to make comparisons, those who have been in the trade lor many year claim that they cannot recall a season when the receipts were so largely made up of fair to good beef steers during the month of March a at the present time. In spile of this very large run the rattle market this week has been in fair condition, al though there has been a lower tendency to values. A right choice bunch of prime beeves would prubojjly sell very nearly as high as last week. Good handy-weight cattle are probably liVolSc lower for the week, while rough heayy beeves have de clined 15ti26c. Cows and heifers, notwithstanding the large receipts, have been in miMir.ute sim ply and there haa been a very good buying nemanil 011 the pari or local packers. 1 he market on the better grudes has la-en will inaintaiiiud. Anything on the fair to good order can safely be quoted fully as high as Inst week. Common canners and cutters on the other hand, have been Inclined to drag and gradually eased off as the week advanced. This kind is as low as It has been any time this Winter. Blockers and feeders sold at very strong prices during the hist half of the week, but toward the close that i. on Thursday, the receipts began Increasing quite rapidly, the prevailing high prices having appar ently Induced free shipments. At the same time with tho growth ot the receipt the country demand was somewhat disappoint ing, so that under these two influences working In opposite directions the market eased off and at the close of the week is generally 1oj15c lower.

Par kers generally started out bidding lower, and the trade al lirst was very slow. Later on buyers ar.d sell er got together on a basis of price mat were Jusl about 24c lower than yesterday's general market. The trade then became active and ihe rece ipts soon changed hands. The Hogs sold very largely al 0.224tii 25. as against $6 22VU&274 yesterday. The top today was $6 JO, w hich was 24c lower. A load was aold very late yesterday al $6 324. the high point of the year. Hogs have shown considerable Improve ment this week notwithstanding the fact that the receipts have been extremely heavy that Is. way in excess of previous weeks and very much larger than for the corresponding week of a year ago. Prices have gradually tended upward, the higii point being reached on Friday, when the average of all the sales was $4,254, which made that the high day of the year. After allowing for the slightly lower prices pre vailing today the market is still HKi124c higher than It was al the close of lasi week. Representative sales Si'. . SU.
