CATTU5 Thar wera'lfit cara of cattle
reported In tha yarde thla mornln;. aa
acainat 14 yeaterday and 28( on Tueaday
of laat week. It will be remembered, how
ever, that laat Tueaday'a receipts were
unuaually large, ao that today'e run might
be conaldored aa a fair average.
Tha market on beef eteera waa alow and
dull throughout and It waa later than
utual before a clearance waa effected. It
wat vary evident that packera were not
vary anatoue for the hlh priced and heavy
cattle and aa a rule they were decidedly
bearish when It came to anything of that
deacrlptlon. The reault waa that better
gradea ef (cattle were alow and aa a rule
lOo lower.- Some of the light and handy
weight cattle may poaalbly have been cloae
Cow and helfera were In very good de
mand, tha market on that kind being atrong
t6 10c higher tha,n yeaterday. Soma pretty
good atuff aold up to 16.60.
Thre waa quite a apHnkling of etocker

waa good and pretty much everything

HOOH Hog eold lae higher this tnoralng
nd the trede wae active at the advance.
So much eo that the great bulk of tha re
relpt changed hande in very rood season.
Shit twra were eepeclelly gnod buyers for
( holi-c. even loads, weighing lOO pounds or
a little better. Quite a few of tha hor of
that description eold aa much ae Ifo higher,
(m the other hand, there waa here and
there a aaleamsn who thought that he did
not get more than Ac advance on eome of
tils lees desirable loads. A ronsMersble
proportion of the hogs aold at I4r4.
and on up as high aa 17.10 for very good
hfavy load. After In more urgent order
were filled and severll of the buyer hsd
dropped out, the trade e4owed up, becoming
rather dull and weak on the extreme close.
Today's dvnn- carries tha market not
only to the highest point touched so far
thla year, but the top today wa the high
est price paid for a full load of bog since
lH'J. the high year, whan (8.46 waa the top.

Sll EKP Receipts of sheen this morning
were not very large, showing a heavy fall
ing off as compared with Tucudsv of last
t(ck It was fortunnt? that this was to.
fi't the reason that the demand ws rot
very brisk and It did not take verv many
double decks to supply th requirements
of packers. The quality of the receipts
was tnfprtor asjaln today, there being a
good many loads that were fsr from de
sirable as viewed from a packer's stand
point. The snap and strength of the market,
which was so noticeable last woek. sppenrs
to have been lost. The break In the east
ern mutton market and the large -number
of Colorado heing held at feeding stations
close to Chicago, have given packers bear
ish Ideas. They seem to have come to the
conclusion that they paid more Inst week
for sheep and lambs, especially lambs, than
was necessary.. With the teeMng general
among buyers that prices are likely to go
a Mttle lower, It Is not surprising that they
are huylng very sparingly.
The above will give some Idea of the
feeling that was prevsUIng tn the sheep
barn this morning and It will he easier to
understand the condition of the market.
Buyera started out without any apparent
hurry to fill orders and the trade w4
very much of a drag all th morning, with
the tendency on prices easier. Some stuff
that buyers 1ut happened to wnt sold
to pretty good advantage, but on the other
hand, acme stuff waa hard to move. Good
Mexican, lambs sold up to 17.86. while the
best old wethers here touched f A.nO, and It
took rtfcht good ewe to ring io .86.

NEW TORK, April 4,-The demand for
Btdcks todsy encountered an smount or
offerings that overbore the balance and
carried the price movement tckwariJ!.
The extent of the recent advsnce evidently
In Itself a main Incentive to much of
the selling, which wss speeulstlve profit
taking In large part. The professional
besrs were ready to take advantage of the
wavering appearance of the market and to
help on the decline with short selling and
with offrrlng down of prices.
The addition from day to day of new
stocks to the list which have risen above
the price touched in the advance In the
latter part of last year brlnga the mar
ket to a stage which la recognised aa crit
ical, aa between the alternatives of reac
tion or further advance. The arrival of
a movement at the extreme of a former
stage after a long contrary movement
finds a waiting account that has been
held through the Interval for a chance to
liquidate without loss. All previous pur
chases thus come in for a profit on any
further advance, with an Incentive, In con
sequence, to sell. New forces of Improve
ment must he relied upon to carry the
advance through auch a atage. The aver
age price of the moat active stocks on
Monday reached about the level touched
on the auatalned advanc which aet In Inst
year after the presidential election. Some
of the most conspicuous stocks have risen
well above that and some eve far short
of It. but the averages are ususlly com
puted as nearly the same. The consider
able body of professional traders In stock
which Telles on charts of price movements
hesitates to extend commitments In fnce
of this condition until the market has
given dear indication of its new Impulse.
New Impelling fsotors are not many or im
portant todav, but the growing hesitation
about carrying the speculation forward
left the market without sufficient sustain
ing power to bold prices. Foreigners were
disposed to take profits as well ns home
speculators. The fact that the present
week In the stock market will end on
Thursdsy added to the disinclination to
extend speculative commitments.
Tomorrow's government crop report Is
awaited with keen Interest and Is expected
to have an Influence on the speculation If
any decisive Information Is given of the
spring condition of the winter wheat crop.
With wheat and cotton both at top prices
for the season and with rumors not lark
ing of crop damage to account for this,
the stock market Is compelled to take some
notice of the subject. The conference on
Thursday between the anthracite operators
and miners' representatives is expected to
have some decisive effect on the Immedi
ate future of trade activity in that field.
Bevond the coming three days- holiday
looms up a possible supreme court decision
on Monday In the commodities test clause.
The stock market has demonstrated Its sen
sitiveness to this topic too often for It to
be Ignored. The opening arguments In
the governments suit against the Stand
ard Oil company at St. Louis contained
some material for appraising any change
In governmental policy In these prosecu
tions of corporations which might have re
sulted from the change In administration.
Nothing wss offered, however, to fore
ahadow any great leniency, such aa ha
been assumed In the discussion of pros
pects from financial standpoint. The mat
ter wss commented upon In Connection
with the dav's stock msrket. gome very
unfavorable views of the steel trade po
sition were heard and the heavy tone of
l nlted States Steel waa of sympathetic ef
fect on the wuole market. The realising
movement waa under control and was facil
itated bv the sustslnlng effect of strength
In special stocks, without any special ex
planation In the news. The covering of
shorts effected a considerable rally at tne
end of the day.
Bonds were Irregular. Total sales, par
value. 46.822.000. Vnited States bonds were
unchanged on call. . .
Number of sales and leading quotations
on stocks were as follows:

stocks were very firm. Gilt-edged securi
ties generally were good on essier money,
while kafflrs and foreigners beneflied on

menced well, but they lost fractionally

Attorney Kellogg this morning, before re
suming his trgtiment In the government's
rase te dissolve the Standard Oil company
cf New Jersey, stated with great positive
ress that he would complete Ms preliminary
address by noon, and that his associate.
C R intawv Ae rhtaA would there
fore complete the government's opening
todsy. He only asked five hours, he added,
to close Ms side of the case. He thought,
therefore, that the intervening three days
before Saturday would bo sufficient for th
dafana and the .rintMaHi. cnnM h con
cluded by Saturday evening. Lawyers XIII-
urn, Rosenthal, johnaon snd Watson
merely smiled when ssked tt their argu
ments could be completed In that time.
"I guess we will make arrangement to
be here a few days next week," id
Lawyer John J. Mllburn, when naked about
the case closing Saturday.
At 10 o'clock Frank B. Kellogg, tha fd
eral attorney, resumed hi discussion cat th
lsw points, applicable, according to hi
contention, to a proper Interpretation of
the Sherman let. The crux of Ma argu
ment waa thst the original twenty compa
nies Involved In the trust sgreement ot
1874 and 1SS2 wer at that time competitive
and Illegal under the then existing common
law, the trust was. therefore, void. The
same conspiracy to monopodias and restrain
commerce had exltted continuously until
tho preaent dy, bringing th defendsnt
well within the purview of the exUtlng
Srierman law, he Insisted.

Discussing the governmsnfs allegations
of railway discriminations made In favor
of tha defendant, and Its continued u of
rates not filed with the Interstate Com
merce commlsilon, Mr. Kellogg said:
"Tha testimony plainly shows that many
of tha unfiled and unpublished rate used
by the Standard Oil In the transportation
of petroleum were in clear violation of the
Sherman act, as well aa discriminatory
sgalnst Its competitors." The attorney
also charged that the defendants had used
Intrastate rates, neither filed nor pub
lished, aa interstate ries, In plain violation
cf tho old interstate commerce set. in
supporting this position, the tovirnmint'i
tjttorney quoted st length from the Inter
state commerce act, and the liter Hepburn
Continuing. Mr. Kellogg touched upon th
alleged abuse of rates between Whiting ami
Evgnsvllle. Ind.. via Illinois, stating the
shipments were clearly Interstate, and th.
tariffs should havs been filed.
"The Stsndard Pipe lines hv refused te
oomply with th Igw of congre. r.
quiring them to set as common carrier!
and file tariffs with th Internal Com
merce commission," was another declara
tion of tho attorney In a dlscursiOn of that
phaae of th esse.
A a final proposition of law. Mi. Kl
logg stated that "if the court find thi
combination to be In reatrlnt of trade,
and a monopoly. It has not only th power
to enjoin the defendants, but poei!
a well the plenary power to enforce the
terms snd provisions of the Sherman law."
