irnm mis, int there wai little ground for
the anxiety professed for several days past
that the speculative position had become
unstable and vulnerable. From . passive re
aiatance to depression, the tons passed to
positive strength The demonstration of
resisting nower rnulit nnt tii h...
other oonaequence. since the fear of over
speculsUon and, a top-heavy condition of
values which might lead to a violent re
lapse In esse of socldent had ten the
sole unfavorable factor which could be
pointed out In the situation.
Prices have suffered more serlou set
backs often on rumors of Mr. Roger's
death .r serious Illness than happened lo
aav following - his death. Mr Rogers
i rPrp"el to the Wall street sup
position, as much as any' one man.

In the slock market, decided depression is
sometimes caused by the death of n man
or the vast property Interest and adminis
trative activity of Mr. Rogers.
The extreme effect today wns measured
i decline of 1H In the price of share
of Amalgamated Copper, of which company
ne was president, and of i In Consolidated

The Impression of the
ftd1tUn. of th stook market position wss
not the less strong on account of these
explanations of the resistance shown. Fac
tors of encouragement In the outlook which
have been In abeyance for eevoral days
came Into play again. United States Steel,
of which- Mr. Rogers was a director, was
conspicuously strong, rising through Its
previous record price of 6S to 50. Chrsa-

never' reached by that stock." The
movement In steel was attributed to the
restoration of wages by the Independent

from that action as to the returning profits

booked. News from the copper trade con
tinued very encouraging and a buoyant rise
In copper was In progress In the London
market, when the decline In Amalgamated
Copper on account of the death rf the
president of the company checked tha ad

CATTLE Receipts of cattle were rather
liberal again today and the quality ot ths
offerings waa well up to the recent ex
cellent average. Advices from eastern
markets were decidedly bearlsb, as receipts
there were considerably heavier than anti
cipated and this, together with the liberal
local supply, made a rather depressing In
fluence on the trade, prices being un
evenly lower from start to finish. Some
of th4 handy light and medium weight
beeves such as all classes of buysrs were
after did not show so very much decline,
while on the other hand the' heavy grades
as well as the unfinished grades were fully
10c lower thatf yesterday and slow at that.
Outside orders were fairly liberal, but local
dressed beef men all took a very bearish
view of the situation and were indifferent
buyers throughout. It being well along to
ward noon before much impression had
been made on the receipts.
Increased supplies ot cows and heifers
also gave buyers a chance to cheapen up
and, while prices were fairly well sustained
on the light grades, the general market
was pretty close to 10c lower on the ordi
nary run of stuff. Tha trade waa rather
slow throughout, but the fair demand waa
sufficient to clean up the offerings in very
good season.
Inquiry from the country for stockers
and feeders has been Improving steadily
this week and In spite of the depression
In fat cattle tha market tor desirable stock
steers and feeders held fully steady and
the limited offerings of this character
changed bands In good season at firm

HOGS With 1M cars, about 11.600 hogs.
In sight and wltn outside reports all on Wis
bear order, sellers gnt up agulnst a pretty
hard market this morning. While svet
weather kept farmers out of ths fields and
enabled them to haul bogs mors freely,
still the liberal runs in ths midst of tna
planting season proves mors or less of a
surprise to tha talent.
That ths market would be lower was a
foregone conclusion sj that tha only ques
tion was as to ths amount of ths decline.
Dealors again played a waiting game so
that at 11 o'clock very little trading had
been done. Opening hirta were Indifferent
and Irregular but much lower pn every-

10c lower from the slsrt snd with no pros
pects for Improvement, sellers were finally
forced to let go at the decline noted. The
bulk of the hogs sold todsy around and
under 7.oo for the first time In some weeks.
The trade wss slow and dull at the decline

SHEEP The bearish feeling that per
vaded sheep circles yesterday was still evi
dent today, but limited receipts served to
bolster up values and put the market on a
comparatively steady basis.
Supplies were onesided ss well as meager,
there being only a light sprlnklng of
wooled stock. There were not enough
wooled offerings among the arrivals to
make, much of a market. .
Clippers opened about steady with yester
day and met with a cool reception. The
trade was slow, considering the limited re
ceipts, but salesmen were determined in
their efforts to extract the limit of values
nd on moat sales trading figures were not
materially different from yesterday. Two
loads of clipped lambs, the kind that sold
yesterday at 17.90, registered In the same
notch today. A small string of shorn ewis
were good enough to make $6.10, but there
waa practically nothing In ewes or wetli
u with which to test values.
While the market on spring lambs Is
generally of a vary tickle nature and for
that reason difficult to call at Its true
level, prices on young stuff this morning
appeared to suffer more than values on
clipped stock. There were about three
decks of spring lambs on sale, the best
bunch bringing 610.00, and a band of light
weights moving nt 67.00.
