RANQE OF PRICES.
BHEKP After the big run of 107 cars
yeaterday, today's receipts looked like tha
next thing to nothing. Conaldorlng the
lame run yenterday, ihe market waa In
exceedingly good ehnpe, buyers taking hold
freely and paying very good prices for
the dealrable killers.
With liaht receipts In sight this morn
ing, and with the demand still good, buyers
were out early and It did not take them
very long to clean up the moat of the
offerings. The prices paid ranged any
where from strong to 10c higher. In other
words, whatever weakness was developed
In yetaerday's market was fully made up
today, thla, too, In the face of the fact
that the Chicago market wis posted as
alow and weak, with the receipts only 13,0m.

CATTLE There was a Very fair run ot
4MtU this morning, but of the number
reported in some twenty cars were direct to
pacKers and not offered for sale.
Beef steers were alow and dull packers
evidently feeling that they were enutled to
-itttle conueaxion with the result that
they were generally bidding lower. While
the oftertngs were not very large It took
some little time for buyers and sellers to
get together, but the cattle were finally
old at prices anywhere from steady to a
Cows and heifers were In fair demand
and tha market on the desirable kinds at
least steady with yesterday. While the
trad waa not exactly what might be called
active there -was enough movement to ef
feot a oiearanoe of llie most of the cattls
In reasonable season.
There was nothing new In the stocker
and feeder trade. Tha demand as has
been the case ail along waa, fair and prices
(generally about steady.

NEW YORK. Awll 1 The stock market
Was effected today by the pace at which
the. recovery has been going from the ex
treme depression of the first part of last
week. A disposition to take profits on the
considerable recovery which has occurred
Is coincident with a leavened Inclination to
the sustsinlng measures which have been
apparent for several days past were not
entirely withdrawn, however, and the Con
sequence was a halting and Irregular move
ment 01 prices wnich testined to tne con
flict of furces In the market. The conflict
relapsed more and more Into professional
hands and the quotations Increased In dull
ness. The measures of support In the mar
ket Were particularly effective against the
unfavorable Influence of the fall in prices
In London. The prices made In London
early today after a triple holiday were
much higher than where they left on
Thursday and the tone was firm. Those
early prices In London were regarded as
largely nominal and the sunnort In the
local market here had no difficulty In UcD, uii 4s!
,4 fnl-ioiia well uver ihi iiigm
level. The aggressive strength of a few
stocks hud a large sympathetic Influence
on this reault. It was from this realorod
level of the market that the movement be
came wavering and uncertain again. There
was no Immediate development In affairs to
account tor tnis action and it was at
tributed largely to technical causes. The
large covering operations by the bear party
for several days past have served to reduce
greatly the outstanding short interest In
the market which deprives the market of a
Jiotent demand for strength. Buyers dur
ing the depression appeared as sellers to
laae prorlts. Home attention was paid to
the course of tha newa from vhlnufon
and some part of the heaviness In the Har-
nman stocks was attributed to the senti
mental effect of the position of antagouUm
between the president and the head of that
system revealed bv rjubllcatinna durlnir tha
day. The professed confidence of a party
11 mo iecuiaiiun yesteroay tnat tne pres
ident's utterance on government policy to-w-ards
railroads would abate all alarm on
the subject in financial markets waa not
o active a factor in the situation.
The most notable developments of the
day were In the money markets. The re
laxation there was marked and practically
universal both here and abroad. In London
the private discount rate yielded to below
the bank rate for the first time In many
weeks. New York bar it era awnnvl tosim.
OW of gold In London without bidding higher
moil mo prevailing rate. The effect was
pronounced, however nn tha .In.lln. "
change market here, which rebounded vio
lently. Sales of securities here for for
e gn account added to the demand for for
eign exchange. The relapse in loeal money
rates also affected foreign exchange. The
funds offering In time loans were notably
Increased and a 6H per cent rate waa
quoted for all periods. Borrowers were lit
tle Inclined to employ time loans with
call loans fast yielding to almost nominal
figures. These conditions helped to the
LlLT. ,7,cov!!7. l1 stocks. Very confident
predictions that the Atchison dividend rate
would be raised to 8 per cent tomorrow
put up the price of that stock. The day's
net changes showed declines predominating
heavy ng ot tb mrket was rather
Bonds were more benefitted by the rising
money market than stocks and there was
an appearance of a considerable absorptive
demand at rising prices. Total sales rar

NO LIMIT TO RESOURCES OF ISLAND
U Relieves Within Few Years Cubans
Will Demand hy Popular Vote
Annexation to I'nlted
Thomaa II. Ay res of Pierre, B. D., la
In Omaha on his return from a visit ot
several week In Cuba. Mr. Ayres la a
well known real estate man of South
Dakota and le largely Interested In ranch
ing In that state and la well known in
"Th purpose of my visit to Cuba wst
with a view to Investing In land there and
to study conditions from th ground floor,"
said Mr. Ayres. "I do not wish to speak
as an Investor In Cuban properties, but
merely as an observer.
"I can say I do not think our American
people realise the Commercial Importance
of Cuba to us. It Is California, brought to
our very doors. No land In the world cart
or does produce a better or greater variety
of citrus fruit. The soil of Cuba Is work'
Ing for you during the entire twelve
months of the year. Of course you have
heard and read all about the climate, which
Is that of perpetual spring and summen
Water can be obtained at from fifteen to
twenty feet In the greatest abundance ahd
tt Is the best and sweetest water In the
world. While there Is not any very great
need of Irrigation In Cuba, the whole coun
try Is easily susceptible of Irrlgntlon.
Everything except apples and winter wheat, '
that grows In Nebraska con be abundantly
raised In the Island. They are beginning
to raise little patches of com, and whlla
corn can never become much of an ex
porting product sufficient of tt can be raised,
for home consumption, and Is raised.
Ho Limit to Resource,
"Every species of garden vegetable
known to the temperate latitudes can b
raised there all the year round. This la
particularly tru of tomatoes and all ' of
our early vegetables and fruits, and. It re
quires but from three to four days to ship
them to the most distant of our Atlantlo
seaports, while the western trade can be ,
supplied through Pensacola, New Orleans
and Galveston from one to two days earlier.
'The business Is largely In the hands of
the old Spaniards and, strange to say, they
are the most ardent American annexation
ists. Of course, there Is a strong revolu
tionary spirit prevalent in the island.
But the motive that actuatea that
spirit Is not understood by us her
at home. For centuries Cuba has been gov
erned by an official class tnat has .mad
fabulous fortunes by Incessant and merci
less graft. The native, working Cuban ha
had this fact so burned Into his soul that
he has little confidence In polltlos. They
have been ' plundered and taxed so long
with no apparent reciprocal results that
they look upon a political campaign aim
ply a a game for the outs to get In, so
that they can get their hands Into the
publlo treasury to enrich themselves. They
believe that the lost Cuban government
was one of th graft order and the present
campaign la to put honest and upright
men into office and to see that they die-,
charge their duties honestly and for tha
benefit of th whole country. If they do
not, another revolution Is aura to come.
Majority Are Enthusiastic.
"Tha mass of Cubans are Industrious,
bard working people. They know the capa
bilities of the Island and want to see It do
It best. They are proud and would prefer
to run their own government, but would
even prefer annexation to grafting officials.
"Tha Cuban railroads are owned largely
by the English and th Germans are get
ting a tootnoiu in too country in a com
mercial way. Of course a great many
American interest are centering in Cuba,
but the Cuban still ha a suspicion that
America la scheming to forcibly annex th
island and may confiscate th lands not al
ready under private ownership and make
serfs of the poorer classes. However, thla
sentiment, which Is fostered wholly by the
antl-annexatlonlsts, ts gradually dying out
and I believe that In a few years the
Cubans- will by a popular vote declare for
annexation to the United State."
