NEW YORK, Nov. a. Steadjt cables and
mall receipt In the northwest hail a
strengthening . effect today on the local
wheat market, but the tone at the close waa
little more than steady because of selling
by pit traders. Final quotations on the
December delivery were unchanged from
those of yesterday. Corn was a shHue
blither. Oats were tip 'iHc. Provisions
were unchanged to Be Jower.
Transactions in the wheat pit were not
large, and the bulnean was confined uhlefiy
bit traders, sentiment early In the day
ra somewhat bullish, but toward the end
of the session the feeling became easier.
The market waa Influenced by the continued-
small movement of spring wheat
nd by a report of an Kngllsh crop sta
tistician, who claimed that the United
fttate will be able to ship for export this
year about 1W,w.i0,000 -bu. and only a smull
proportion' of that amount hua yet been
sent out. .The steady tone of the market
at Liverpool, notwithstanding the weakness
of the local market yesterday, was an en
couragement to the bulls. The market
closed ateady. December opened ic higher
ut 74"ic. sold Iwtween 74Vi'4Hc and i4Tic
and closed at 74c. Clearances of wheat
and flour were equal to 2W,Suo bu. Primary
receipts were fl.uoO bu., axalnst l.m.uuO
bu. for the corresponding day last year.
Minneapolis, Duluth and Chicago reported
receipts of 514 cars, egaiiiHt 651 cats luxt
week and 7W cars one year ago.
Dulluras of the most pronounced type
prevailed today in the corn pit. Local l e-i-elpta
were connidemblv below the amount
estimated and tecause ot tni prices neio
ateady. The close was steady. Deceinlter
opened unchanged at sold up to C-V'
nnd closed at 434'&4:iSc. 1-ocal receipts
were il cars, with 95 cars of contract
Oat were In active demand by commis
sion houses all day and the volume of
trading was large. There was an excellent
shipping demand, and aa receipts continued
small the market waa oulte firm. The
renter part of the grain sold for nhlpmi it
was said to have been purchased by south-
1 . rn Interests. The market cloned sinma.
iecemoer opnu uu'umiiB-u o.v-mw-4.,
old between Wo and USa34c and cloited
at 34He. Local receipts were 16ti car.
Provision opened Arm, but subsequently
eased off on selling- by local holders, l'lie
Market for live hogs opened steady, but a
decline of c. which came later, was the
chief weakening influence of the day. At
the close January pork was unchanged at
14.00. Lard was tc lower at 1.47. Kius
were down 2Vo t 17.60.

The following table shows the average
price of hoga at South Omars for th lat
several days, with compajisons:
week have been very liberal, showing a
lrge g tln oer the mall t nn i-f lt week
atni a hesvy lnt-ree a compared wl'h
i.ie cot rei-i onding week of a yeac ago. Din ing
the fi:n part of the week, owing to the
moderate enrply of good killers, prices
tended steadily upwaid. in Thursoay it
w ngttred tost fat sheep were nt leat
I'Uloo higher than the close of the pre
vious week. On Friday the receipt ol (at
t:ift were the heaviest t,f the week nnd
irKl were side on thMt day to taae off
what they bad put on cailicr in the weex,
so that at the ctoe the miik'l wan about
where It ws at the- coe of Ihm wees.
1 lie trade has been s a whole In a goon,
healthy couonion and enlltrly etitlstai tory
in seller. A a matter of fact, prices hn
been too high it comptred with eastern
market snd packer have been Int lined
to complain that their biutton was i oting
them too much here. Ptlll, a noted itbiivi-,
the light fuinplv during the flrst half of the
week forced them to iay the price.
The feeder market during the week has
been somewhat uneven, but all the good
kinds of feeders have been free sellers
snd no ery grest change ha tsken place
In the market for the belter grade. It
would bo possible to point out sales that
were fully stwady to gtrotig. The feeling
on the market, though, has been a lltlie
easier on the better grade.
When It come to tho common to me
dium kinds of feeders, the story Is differ
ent. Owing to the large Tecelpts, especially
of trashy old ewes, the market had a lower
tendency ail the week and 1 safely 2.ic
end nn some of the least desirable K1"'"
ptteslhlv .Vic lower than a week ago. The
tact is. these old thin ewea aro getting
down to where buyers can afford to take
hold of them.
The range sesson is rspidly drawing to a
close and parties desiring feeder hail best
pot delay, as another bad storm on tho
ranee might reduce receipt to such an
extent as to mske It Impossible for them to
sectir what they want.

latter to be neglected and to sell tu very
poor advantage, prices on that kind going
1 atendily downward all the week. Good
range cattle have been free sellers eveiy
I daa,and are fully steady for the week, but
the common to medium kinds, owing to the
more liberal supply, have shown more or
ies weaKiiess. .
Receipts of cows and heifer of all kinds
have been very moderate all the week,
the proportion of cattle of that description
as compared to tho total receipts being
light. As there was the uual good n -mand,
strong prices have prevailed all th
week, and tnc market at the close is, if
anything, better than it was one week ngn.
The fact ia, the market on cow stuff at this
point is very high and right closu to east
Strictly good feeders having weight and
quality have been sought aftet all the
week and have commanded airong prices,
selling aa high as any time. On the other
hand, off grades snd everything in the way
of light or thin stock cattle has been slow
sale, with the tendency lower. In fuct,
receiver have been forced to shade prleea
on the less desirable kinds to move them
at all. The scarcity of rough feed in the
country is the reason generally aacrlbed
for the slack demand for everything ex
cept good cuttle ready for the dry lot- At
the close of the week stockers und Inferior
grades of feeders are safely 1520C lower
than one week ago.

HOGS There were not very many hogs

prices were, if anything, strong, bul dur
