Shorts covered freely on the advance
and the congested condition of the cash
market sent values to- a new high mark
for the May option.
Coin was easier on fleer countiy offer
ings and a lixht cash demand prospects
for the comina crop are mote favorable.
Wheat was weak early on soft cables,
but strengthened later and showed a good
advanc e i t the rlcse. Advices from Europe
and some Iwd crop rerorts from Kansas
were the feature for the advance. The
cash situation Is the stronttest now It has
been a. id further advances are predicted.

but provisions were only steady.
The wheat market was an erratic affair
and the strength of May was a feature,
Siiorts In that delivery were more uneasy
on account of the short time remaining In
which to- make -deliveries. With the excep
tion of the, current month the market In
feneral displayed considerable weakness,
.ater, however, prices advanced sharply.
July rallying I'ie from the low "po-'nl. One
of the principal bullish factors was a re
port credited to an official of one of the
western railroads ' which etsimated the
wheat crop of Kansas at the low figure of
60,000.000 bushels, agaiBM. the government's
estimate of 94,000,000 bushels made on May
1. Another strengthening Influence was an
improved demand for dash wheal here and
In the northwest. The market was nervous
during the final hour, -Kit bullish sentiment
predominated and a firm tone prevailed at
th close. The rangx.for the day on May
was between 81.31iSl.3i1 snd for July 1.1
and 11 .1744.. Fma) qui nations showed -gains
i.f Vil'nc. May being at 1.32'4 and July at
increased receipt of' eorti ' prompted an
opening raid on the May delivery, which
resulted in break of-aimom 1c; the mar
ket, however, soon turned strong. During
the 'day the July delivery sold between
6Vf(4WTse and 69SiC. -The close was firm,
with prices up V to VtfHo comparvd with
the previous Xinal figures. July closed at
All deliveries of bats rose to new high
levels for the season as a result of ra
nswed covering by Influential shorts.
There was no change in the general situa
tion. The top for May was reached at 6T'c
and for July at SiWc The market closed
strong at, almost the highest point, at net
gains of '4(ti4c to lVo, with May at 61i,,c
and July at 64Vc.

CATTLE As usual on a Saturday there
was nothing of any consequence on sale.
Supplies for the week have been fairly
liberal showing a heavy increase aa com
pared with.tJie third week of May last
year and the quality of the ofenngs has
becq about aa good aa it has been at any
time this year. During the early part of
the week the liberal receipts here and at
efustorn points were responsible for some
falling off In the demand and the trend of
values was lower. The decline for the three
days amounted to Waste, but during the
latter half of the week, with more med
erate supplies and a better tone to reports
from the eastern beef market, the trade
picked up somewhat and a part of the de
cline of the early part of the week was re
gained, closing quotatlona for beef steers
being right around Urn 15c lower than a
week ago. The- decline has been most ap
parent on the plain heavy cattle, while
some of the desirable light and handy
weight grades are selling as well aa a
As a rule the course of values taken by
cows and heifers has followed fat cattle
very closely all week. For the first three
days of the week the HlieraJ offerings gave
buyers the chance to be a little more par
ticular in their purchases and the result
was mora or less decline on the ordinary
butcher and canner grades. Most of this
has been recovered, however, and closing
quotations are not more than loc lower than
a week ago, Through the week the demand
has boon beat for the fat light grades and
these have Shown no particular decline.
Veal calves are celling fully as strong aa a
week ago and the same Is true of bulls,
stags and roughstock generally.
Business In stoc.kera and feeders has been
rather quiet all week owing to the fact
that supplies of thla kind have
been comparatively light. Good rains
throughout the corn belt have stimu
lated the - demand considerably and
there have been plenty of buyers and buy
ing orders here all the week for desirable
cattle of all weights. Prleea show an ad
vance of possibly 10gl5c, although the
volume of business has been comparatively
small A good clearance has been mado
and fhere is every prospect of a good de
mand at firm figures next week.

HOGS Receipts today numbered 116 cars,
8,14 head, as against d.bou nead yesterday
and 6.369 on last Saturday. The run tor
the week luutls 4., iioad aa against
40,531 head last week and i8,2uu head fur
the col lespoiidlng Week a year ago. The
run for tne weeg siiuws Heavier than a
week ago but falls tar below the number
received this wutk a year ago. With no
great change in values this morning, prices
are, however, around a dime under last
baturdsy, the tiigu day of the season.
Dealers look on present prices aa being
exceptionally high considering conditions
surrounding the trade and are fighting any
further advance but with indifferent
success owing to the fact that supplies
have not bpen excessive for some days.
The outlook was not so very promising
to sellers gt the start, however, local con
ditions proved better than anticipated so
that the market In the main pruved fairly
satisfactory, especially on the big bjlk of
the better grades..
The market started out in fair season
Willi buyers out after the finished grades
snd bid from the start around steady prices
for the better grades. As outside reports
all cauie lower steady bids here looked
quite attractive to sellers so that trading
was reasonably brisk at around Friday a
best figures on good hogs.
When dealers gut Into the poorer kinds
the tiade was not so satisfactory. Sales
of the commoner hogs Were Irregular and
anymiiere from around ateady to as much
as 5c lower. With the good hogs out of
the Way the market eased off knd finished
rather dull and weak on the common lots
The tops today reached $7.37 and the
bulk sold at $t' 85Q7. 10.

HkKP There iftt 110 arrivals today
and sheep salesmen enjoyed their custom
ary week-end holiday.
The market this week has been crm
paratlvely uneventful. l'a kers started out
Monday with lllt'oncealcd bearish inten
tions, trusting to luck and their own
eJ forts, lliat.val.ues would swing back to
lower levels. Light receipts made break
on Monday Inposslble but developments on
the following day were decidedly in favor
of pack4 interests. Kansas city wired
heavy receipts of. grass-fed sti'Ck and
Chicago supplies were liberal, as vrll. Ad
vices from both points were of a bearlsn
nature and local buyers were- sole lo
hammer values with ease. The decline,
however, was not groat, the bulk of
supplies moving at a lot15c lower basis.
With tho exception 'of yesterday wnen
there were hnrdly enough offerings lo
make a market, the demand has iv-en
backward and the trade alow throliglit'ut
the week. While the total decline alll not
exceed 15fl2Se nuder last week's close, an
easier feeling is evident In live mutton
circles and ha Influenced trading fumes
In a small Ut-grce. The level ol price,
however. Is nt ill at a comparatively lofty
point and even though' tome of tile icccnt
bluom has been effaced.- the near fuurc
of tho sheep market Is anyilli.'lg but di.--coui-aglng.

readjustment stage and more stability may
be expected during the in m tix we ks, m
least. It might be well li iiicntlon tne
partiality of packers for clipped stock St
this time of the yesr. Woolsklns. do pot
dress out as well as in the warmer weather
as clippers and for that reason tile demand
for the latter nt current . prices, has a
better tone.- - .
The general quality of receipts this week
has fell down considerably, a larger por
tion of supplies consisting of mediunl
grade and culls. As was n-ted yesterday,
the receipts this week have leei unusually
light. The official count Tor the past five
days Is right around ll.orn head as com
pared with 13.000 head of Inst week and
22.000 head fur the corresponding week ot
