CATTLE Receipts of csttle thl rooming
were very large at most market point.
Chicago especially baa heavy receipts, re
porting sti.imu head early, a-ith Kansas City
repornng Hi.lsHi head. The local run. how
ever, wa not burdensome. The heavy re
ceipt naturally created a very weak feel
ing in the market and Chicago started the
downward movement by reporting the
opening there a J tup lie lower and report
from ilher selling points acre not very
much more encouraging.
Under the influence of a good local de
mand and a moderate supply of good beef
steer tlie market at tni point did not
show much change, in spite of the lear re
port from other swilling point. Strictlv
Oeahrable fcilier were generalrv quoted a
ful:ic steady with last week. Mediuni kind
mere a liuie alow, but eUU mere wa na
very greavt change.
Not far from ninety car of oow and
heilers were on sale. The better grade
and also the canner grade seemed to be
free seller at fully steady price. On tbe
4H.her hand, the in-between kind a-ere a
litiie slow and if anything a Hula lower
than last Week.
The beat feeder continue in good de
mand at steady price. Inferior grade
and all tratshy stuff were sn.w and hard
to move at unsarialacKo-y prices, the name
as was the cane practically every day last
