Fair to good stockers and feeders Common to fair stoekera Bulla, atags, eto The following table shows ths average price of hogs at Mouth Omaha for th last several days, with comparisons. practically all grades of fat cattle sold 10e lower, and this was followed on weonesoay by a market that was quoted anywhere from weak to l"e lower. On Thursday the market was weak, though not very much lower, while Friday's market. If anything. little stronger. At the close or me wru It Is safe to quote heef steers 15S'.i0 lower ian the clou, of the previous woek. The ado on practically every day of the week as flow and dull, there being a lark of rifeney to the demand which robbed the market of life and snap. Cows and heifers followed along in me ak of beef steers, the declines amount ing to about the same. Possibly some kinds of cows did not slider quite so much and some are quoting the declines for the week as amounting to littiznc, but it woum noi be far from the truth to quote them the same as beef steers, that Is, l&tj-Oc lower. Blockers and feeders sold very well dur ing the first half of the week, but when hursday came nnd it became apparent that cattle of that description were be (Tin - ilng to accumulate In the hands of specu lators and that there was a possibility that some of them might have to be carried ver Sunday values weakened off very rap- Idly and soon became all of 10 15c lower on the most annzht after kinds and lMi"De lower on the common to Inferior grades. HOGS After a decline of a most 10c in the last two days, the hog market looked p today. While the advance was small. he market being only a shade better, the nange was In the right direction to pleas he sellurs. The trade, when once under way, was active, and tho hogs sold very largely at 3H.4S. with a sprinkling at $6.46. It will be remembered that yesterday the bulk of the hogs sold at 3a.40-gti.42V4- The top both days was the same 16.60. Every thing sold and weighed up In very good season In the forenoon. lhe market this week has fluctuated more extensively than has been the case on a good many weeks previous. The week tartea out with a good advance, which was followed by a still stronger advance on Tuesday and a strong market on Thurs day, that being the high day of the year. 1 'urlng the two days following prices eased off quite rapidly, but after allowing for the light reaction today tna market la only 4c lower than It waa at the close of last eek.

A vonsiaerauie proportion Of the arrivals has consisted of lambs on their way to eastern ana normern points to be shorn and pre pared for the later market and In conse quence not offered for sale at thla nolnt. The actual offerings on the market have consisted principally of lambs, no wethers or yearlings of any conaeqeunae having been Included among the recelDta. The tun. ply of ewes has also been extremely light. The market aa a whole has been In most satisfactory condition and values have gen erally tended upward. As to sheep there have not been enough here to make a test of values, hence It Is Impossible to say just how much advance they would show. The supply of ewes has also been verv liKht and the market has been practically bare of real choice stuff, so that there has not been much opportunity for Judging how much higher they really are. It is safe to say, however, that desirable wethers, yearlings ana ewes wouia sen aeciaeaiy nigncr ir they were to be had. Some operators on the market venture the assertion that a right choice bunch of ewes would crowd 86. Lambs for the week are safely 25c hleher than a week ago. The trade on most days nas neen not oniy strong ana niaher. but active on all good kinds of killers Oood choice lambs were sold as high as 86.80, which Is the best price paid since February. Feeder lambs have also been good sellers at good, strong prices, and it has been no trouble for receivers to unload anything of mai aesenpuon pomessing aesiraouity.

UN-CENT DECLINE IN REFINED SUGAR Sorno Cotton Goods Well Cleared to aad Hard to Get Jobber Re. Jolee Over Better Weather for Farmers. No features of prominence have marked the trade of the fast week. The most Im portant has been the decline of 10 cents a hundred In refined sugar. No further ad vances in shoes or dry goods have been re ported, though certain lines of cotton goods are txceedmgly Brarce. Trade In general has been good. Jobbers are pleased with the reports from the country, which say that the farmers are getting along well with their work after a long Inactivity causrd by wet weather. Cheese Is a trifle easier. The factories are starting up, so that lower prices may be looked for, especially with regard to the new make. Fancy October Is scarce and will no doubt continue to command a pre mium. The new cheese coming on the mar ket Is reported to he poor and will not be of the best kind for several weeks, when full grass cheese Is offered. Rice is firm and some of the rice millers say they expect to see It advanced 1 cent a pound within sixty days. The demand Is fair and rice of good quality Is scarce. Though the Lenten season has gone and the demand has eased no romlilernhi v prices on salt fish remain firm. The market on canned lis 11 is nrmlng up and the can ners are predicting an advance. Coffee Is In a more settled position than last week and prices are practically un- iiauieu. moras are Doing steadily re lief d. The reason sriven that rnff., riw not advance Is that the new crop is con ceded to be much larger than the old on and It Is not for away. Reined Sagar Cheaper. Owing to a Steady dei-lln. In r, auraM for savaral days renned has dropped 10 cents a 100 pounds. The market in Cuban ugar shows a decline of 15 nuinta fr h. week, though foreign raws remained prac tically the same. Htnoka am miuH ,,n at New York and the accumulations there In the last two weeks amount to TO.OuO tons. Refiners want the low market, so they take x iiucm ior me neavy demand, which comes in Mav anri Jim, tnhh... here expect a strong reaction as soon as ine neavy consumption begins. At present the prospects for a larre amall fruit .mr. iii,ver tne country are excellent Ths past week has developed a very strung market on spot tomatoes In the east, where there has been an advance of from 10 to 12c per doxen. It Is now supposed that there are very few tomatoes oulalde of the hands of the syndicate. Reports have it that they have advanced thir prlcea on full standard goods 60 per dosen. Ihere Is, however, positive connrmallon of UllS report. There are no chanarea In rnnnrt In future tomatoes, except that the pacKera wiiciuiB 10 cgntnci ior eany delivery, says th middle or last of July, at prlcea considerably below those ruling today. There Is no particular change to rennrt with reference to snot corn. Mmt nt it packers oliering future corn have with drawn their early figures, not many of them caring to enter the market th. prices established by a few of the very large packers. Corn is going out remark ably last and there are sull good sised blocks in sight. Earthquake Affects Canned Gooda. At the present writlna-. it la dlffiuit tn tise up th situation on California, canned fruits, for the reason that considerable surplus stock was-stored In and around San Francisco, and It Is ImDosaibia to ut accurate information as to in amount of block mat nas oeen destroyed. On tiling, however, la very clear, and that Is that with th destruction of properly that Is known to have taken place In th oity, there will be quit a heavy demand for all ainas 01 canned fruit and vegetables, so that It Is reasonable to suppose tnat tnere Will be slightly higher prices on thla :in of goods, tne advance, of course, depending upvu ui pruvuruuu 01 in iruii mat nas been destroyed. The demand for all rmdi of this character ha been heavy, n.d but few of th packers have had anything; Ilk fair assortment to draw from. Salmon Is in stronger Dosilion week hv week, while th demand Is growing heavlor and th supply less. It is now well estab lished that both aockeyes and Columbia river Chinook salmon will open up at higher finues wu ruiea uui season. Stronger market la renorted on a-allnn apples, th supply of which Is vary limited. ouiu fitw x or state ana Micnigan are asking more money for Lhia atno.k. Rvairv Item In th line of gallon goods la In strong position, wiia in possiDi exception of pumpain. A further advance has taken place on evaporated apples, both whole and ring cut. Peaches are In stronger position, due to th increasing demand and the limited supply. K&isins also are taking on addi tional strength. The destruction In San Francisco is going to have Us effect upon ins oriea xruic margei. inasmucn as tna surplus of peaches and prunes waa largely concentrated in that market. It Is not prob able that they have a greater buddIv of peacnes ana apricois man win now be re quired for their own and the coast trada. Another advance has been scored on Santa Clara prunes, th market being boosted Wo during the last week. Almost without ex ception the canned goods and dried fruit lines are In active demand and in strontr position, m aemana ior everything in th una peing 01 a neaitny, active character. Let Izrtman Feather Ycur llcst. It's Easy to Pay By the llartman Way. Cotton Good nro Scavrce. Advance order business with local drv gooas nouses continues gooa, ana coueo uons are satisfactory. The feature of th trade situation is the inability of the Job bers i gei cotton gooas in any quantity. Th mills are cleaned ud on cotton, and th Jobbers are finding It hard to get gooda ordered aa early as last tall. Hosiery, un derwear and other lines, which are atill needed In quantities to supply to trade, are slow In coming, a small amount being snippea at a time, ttaiunggan underwear Is apparently all cleaned up, especially In me cneaper graaes. ana lobDer will nav auncuity in renuing orders. current business with shoe jobbers Is running about the same as last week. Ox fords and whit oanvaa shoes are In big demand and th trade In them promises to be the largest in years. Th fall order busi ness is good. The jobbers report collections good. Leather Is holding nrm at the hlgn figures of the season. Rope has scored a bid advance. Manila going up c. while the cotton rope is lo a pound higher. Outside of this, there have been no changes of moment, a few small articles having advanced slightly. Barbed wire and woven wire are the leading sell era, and sales of these goods this season have far exceeded those of last year up to the same time. W ire cloth and screen doors. which advanced something over a week ago, ae moving out well. Palate, Oils nnd Glass. Th window glass situation is strong and an advance la expected to be an nounced today, glass manufacturers hav Ing met recently to discuss the situa tion and decide on the extent of an ad vanoe which seems sure to come. Plat glass Is Xhe same as last week. Th paint business Is at its height, the trade being exceptionally brisk in that line. The de mand Is very heavy. Turpentine is the same as last week, the price being 74c Southern lead is quoted, at 7 Sc. while Carter lead la 74C the same prices ruling last week. Raw linseed oil Is 40o and boiled oil 42c, these prices having ex perienced no change since last week's quo tations. Drag and Chemicals. In drug circles predictions for the com ing season's business have been most optomlstlc ever sine the turn of the year, For the first three months these predic tions were Justified by a large Increase In business.
