In southern Kanatu and Missouri mid crop
reports were of a more conservative char

ports of green bus; damage were received
iroin northern Kansas, cauHlng a slight ad

sales. Navigation on I-ake Superior has

business was unduly congested In a few

of a resnonxe to demand simply to secuie

The bear poaltlon Is based on the prece

after the first relx.-und from suc-h a violent

of this persistent short Interest In the mar

party in the speculation as soon as the

of the first hour a sharp rally was caused
by reports from the southwest of damage
to the growing crop. letter prices again
declined on prorlt-taklng and some buying
for short account and the reports of rains
throughout southern Kansas. The market
closed weak, with prices near the lowest

giMd effect was caused by the downward
tendency of time money rates, which was
looked upon as a better Index of the real
money situation than the deteriorating con
dition of the banks. The large 1oli ex
pansion of the last two weeks Is not re
garded as due to demand for credits In
anything like the proportion of the loan in
creviise, as that Is due largrely to the trans
fer of loan to the New York hanks which
were previously carried by Interior banks
and bv trust companies. This condition of
New York bank notea Is thus, In reality,
a sign of relaxation rather than of stif
fening money markets. The same thing Is
true of the remittance of funds from Lon
don to Paris, which represents a re-pny-ment
of Issues formerly issued and
prompted by the present ease of money In
London. Discounts continued to decline
there today, and also In Berlin, where It is
reported, apparently with authority, that
at this week's meeting of the directors, the
Imperial Bank of Oermany will reduce the
ofllclal discount rate from the prevailing 6
per cent rate. Account Is taken, neverthe
less, of contrlhtitary causes In the expand
ing tendency of the New York bank loans.
In each at the two weeks past nvndlcate
operations were traceable sufficient to ac
count for a large proportion ot the loan
Increase In each instance.
A buoyant market for copper securities
In London and an advance In the quotation
for the metal there were helpful factors
In the day s rise. An Incident regarded an
of some algnlllcanca was the sale of a Stock
exchange seat at a price higher than, the
preceding sale, the, rule being a declining
tendency for the seats when- a pn longed
period of stagnation In stocks Is believed to
be Imminent. International commission
nouses asserted that a more favorable at-
inuue lowaru American securities on the I
part of foreigners was discernible with the I
relaxation In money markets abroad. Re- 1

thing of this kind. As has been the case
for some time past an classes or Dtiyers
were more or less bearish on the heavy
rattle and prices were generally a shade
lower on this class of stuff. The market
opened rather weak all around, but when it
developed that there was an ample demand
for all the cattle offered the trade became
more lively and prospects were favorable
for a good clearance before noon.
As usual the proportion of cows and heif
ers included In the receipts was compara
tively small and with a good general de
mand the trade was active from the start
and prices were generally In last week's
closing notches The supply of veal calves
was tolerably liberal and while there was
a good demand buyers were able to shade
prices about 26c. The market for bulls,
stags, etc., was not materially different
frem last week. . .
Fresh offerings of stockers ana feeders
were decidedly limited and as a very fair
clearance had been made last week both
vard traders and country buyers were In
the market early for supplies. Prices for
desirable stock of all weight ruled fully
Bteady with last week, but there was the
usual Indifference and weakness when It
come to the common, low grade, light and
medium weight stuff.

HOGS There was a tolerably liberal run
of hogs for the first of the week and con
ditions were not materially different from
Saturday, so that the general market was
reasonably active, with very little change
In prices. The demand was best for the
good light snd butcher weight grades, and
these sold freely at steady to strong prices,
around $6.SS'h.40. On the other hand, the
heavy and parking grades were slow sale
from start to finish and In Soms rases they
were possibly a shade eaaier, selling largely
at $6.9''j6.3'-'V4. The movement was reason
ably free throughout, and while the close,
as usual, was rather weak, a clearance
was made In good season. Tops brought
16 46 today, the asms as Saturday, and tha
bulk of the trading waa at $6 "i6 4o, prac
tically the same as the close of last week.
