NEW YOftK August I6.-I11 all essential
respects today's stock market differed
from that of the last fortnight. Londiin
prices for our securities were again higher
and there wa the eame local bullish out
burst at the opening with new "high
record" In Union Pacific, common and
preferred, and Southern Pacific while
Reading. New York Central. St. Paul and
other Issue of lesser importsnc were
conspicuous for their strength.
At Chicago receipts of grain lsst week
were greater by over 3.000.000 bushels than
In the same week last year, with a gain
of more than toe.ooo bushel, in wheat and
about 400,000 bu. In corn. All report reflected
k steady Increase In the business of the
principal steel mills, some of which are
booked Weil ahead. Crop news was for ths
most part highly encouraging, heavy rains
having fallen throughout the "Panhandle."
district of Tex. and In New Mexico,
Oklahoma and the adjacent eectlons. In
Nebraska, however, the absence of rain
was reported to have further adverse effect
on corn. The report of the department of
commerce at Washington Indicating a re
duction In the wheat output of central
Europe of not less then ftO.OuOOuO bushels
below last year's yield waa accepted a a
good augury for our market. Official
figures of this country's foreign trsd for
July also were Issued. They showed an
Increase In Imports over the same month
last year of almost 32tl.000.000. while the
Increase of our export was scarcely one
fourth of that figure.
The onlv sensational feature of the day
was a precipitous slump In Union Pacific
at the beginning of ths last hour. Tht
took had evidenced a reactionary tendency
at a 2Vh Onlnt decline, when suddenly it
fell to 314, a break of h' point from Its
high record Drlce of the morning. The stock
came out tn lots of 600, 1.0U0 and 2.000 shares
with 2.600 shares at 214'.. At 214. however.
the decline wa arrested, and some ground
wa temporarily recovered, but the net re
sult of the day was a loss of 3't points.
Apart from a rumor that action on the re
ported "segregation" plan of the Union
Pacific1 company might be delayed, nothing
developed to account for the break, whlcn
unsettled the general list. Further fever-
iahnes was shown by the list in the final
trading and many of the active issu-

CATTLE Receipts of cattle this morning
were very large, 306 cars being reported
in. This Is the heaviest run of any day
since May 4. when 309 cara were received
and with that exception the heaviest eince
December 15, when 344 car arrived at the
yards. Today's receipts, as might be ex
pected, consisted almost entirely of range
cattle, there being very few native or corn
feds among the offerings. Cows snd feed
ers constituted a large share of the cattle,
but there was also a very liberal sprink
ling of grass beef. Considering the large
run, the market-as a whole waa In very
Grass beef cattle of good quality wefe
free sellers at steady prices. The market
on that kind showed verv little change
In any direction. On the other hand cattle
that were a little off in quality, were any-,
where from weak to IOC lower and rather
slow sellers. Cornfed steers were very
scarce and It Is safe to quote anything
strictly good as steady.
The market on cows and heifers was In
about the same condition aa the beet steer
market, that is. the better grades were
about steady, and from that on down to
as much as (0c lower on Inferior kinds.
Feeder buyers earned to want good cattle
having both weight and quality, and the
market on the best kinds of feeders was
fairly active at about last week's prices.
Rough and Inferior kinds were slow sellers
and weak to 10c lower.

HOG8 Receipts of hogs were extremely
light this morning, being the smallest run
even for a Monday experienced thu year.
There were really not enough hogs to make
a market, but it was evident that buyer
wacted what few there were, and It did not
take them very long to clean ud evervthlna-
offered. The price paid were all of 10c higher
ana titer were some sates mat looked, even
better than that. Light hogs of good quality
sold around 17.70 and on up as high a 17. M).
There were not very many heavy hogs
In the yards, but pretty decent kind of
packer, running largely to cow, auld
down to 87.40, with belter grade bringing
mure money. As there were so few hog
here today no dependence can be placed
on a comparison between the bulk of the
ale today and last week, especially aa
the hoga were mostly light weights today.
Today' advance carries the market to
the highest point touched since Saturday,
August 7. when 17 90 was paid for the best
hogs on sale.
