In. The total for the five days foots up
27.010 head, which shows a tailing- oft
of about 3.0U0 head aa compared with the
same period last week and of 6,000 head
aa compared with a year ano. till II the
run haa been plenty larae enoutth to
supply the requirements of the market.
In fact it would have been better for
the selling Interests had the receipta been
smaller. Aa It was liberal receipta com
bined with the big slump in Chicago has
brought about a decidedly lower range
of prices on most kinds of cattle.
There were really not enouuh fresh
cattle on sale this morning to make a
market, and the trade partook verv
largely of tha character usual on Friday.
That Is, It was a slow, different sort of
market devoid of new or Interesting
features. Hucli cattle as buyers lust
happened to want sold very readily at
steady prices, bu'. their wants were lim
ited and inferior and common kinds were
weak and hard to dispose of. r-Ull in
the end practically everything waa
cleaned up. '

&ilk.f Fat lamb trade continued on
Its downward course, packers pounding
values for fresh declines of lo&3nu. The
demandfrom no quarter had very much
life, despite the fact that receipts were
meager, and the market dragged along
all morning without producing anything,
like a creditable clearance. In most quar
ters killers advanced the argument that
local prices are much too high as com
pared with eastern cost, ignoring small
size of receipts.
Something like 5.000 head of stock made
up the supply, and the bulk consisted of
ted and vi armed up classes. One big
string of range wethera arrived, but other
ofturinga that came under western bill
ing were few and scattered. Good sheep
met with a better demand than lambs in
moat cases, but Inquiry for matured mut
tons, wethers especially, usually pre
sented a decidedly quiet tone. Karri
trade in ewes, yearlings, etc.. Indicated a
market steady to some lower.
Attractive fed lambs had to sell at J3..T0
early, and strings that were merely
warmed up, moved in catch-as-catch-can
fashion, ranging at liberal discounts under
classes that were properly fed. fc'trlctiy
prime lambs would hardly ra-ss the to. 60
mark at present, this limit being well up
to other points, 'loppy ewea brought as
much as t3.26 and near prime yearlings
landed at 14.25. There waa little or no
business in canner ewes and the wether
trade was late in starting.
Only a handful of feeder stock was
available and prices showed no quotable
change. Feeder ewes sold up to )2.0O, and
strung weight feeder lambs were wanted
around t4.36. Yesterday's purchase on
country account amounted to only 1,300
head, making a four days' buy of about
2S, 000 head.
The main features of the trade thus
far this week have been a sharp con
traction of fed and warmed-up BtufC from
Iowa and Nebraska sections. On the face
of total supply figures It would seem
that offerings failed to come up to trade
requirements but as a matter of fact the
market held more than enough stock
to satisfy the demand. Current prices
for fat lambs show declines from a week
ago ot fully a quarter, while fat wethers,
ewes and yearlings are closing weak to
about 15c lower. Feeders are still Bell
ing In notches llttlo different from those
at last week's close.

spots, the main market ruling steady to
airong. At one tune in tho session it
waa possible to obtain nickel advances
on attractive lurd giades, but ordinary
butchers and light aturf usually had to
move at prices little different from those
of yesterday. The demand appeared lo
be reasonably active from the start,
with packers f-nrtilslilng the best sup
port and yaids were cleared of offerings
In very good season.
Receipts amounted to fully 100 loada and
the run hud plenty of variety, the same as
recently. lird animals retained their
usual popularity uiiu orew premiums of

graded, brought as much as to. 30, Ami
sales uAV underweights at this level were
the exception. . .
rihlppers and speculators provided an
outlet for only a limited per cent of total
supply and generally favored weighty
stuff that la mure staple than light and
high mixed varieties. Ultra were not
very many pigs among the arrivals, but
anvthina healthy had no trouble in land-

NEW YORK, Nov. 17.-R. G. Dun &
Co.'s Weekly Revle wtomorrow will ayi
While it Is recognized that business is
In a transition period, and transition
means change and uncertainty, jet such
progress has been made In necessary re
adjustments as to impart a better feel
ing. This Is especially noticeable fn the
west, which for some time this year hna
seemed to be more depressed than the
east, which Is closer to the sensitive
financial markets. A larger volume of
business Is being carried on and there Is
now further buying for the future.
The Iron and steel trade la stimulated
by the Increased orders of railroads for
rails and rollinr? stock and by the some
what better demand for structural ma
The new tnnnnge In rails will be con
siderably larger than last year. In the
plate division considerably over 100,000
tons recently have been taken hv the
mills In the Chicago and Pittsburgh dis
tricts, reflecting the Increased business
in cars. Mtecl bars are likewise in greater
request. Lower quotations Induce some
business in other finished products, but
quietness still prevails in sheet plates and
l'lg Iron Is somewhat Improved, buyins;
of foundry grades being larger in certain
directions, although the fixing of quota
tions for 1912 Is still a retarding Influence.
Hessemer Iron Is weaker at Pittsburgh.
Demand for "billets is not active and
prices are not fully maintained.
The Increased demand In retail dry
goods Btores due to cooler weather has
led to more active demand in primary
channels for any lot of merchandise ready
for quick shipment. Prices are generally"
settling to lower levels nnd this Is stimu
lating the placing ot contract business In
a quiet way. Orders for hose, belting and
miscellaneaus wide duck are increasing
and prints, ginghams and bleached cot
tons are moving ntcadily in small lots.
Miscellaneous export trade of cotton;
goods Is very satisfactory and no cancel
lations of China orders have been re
ceived. The narrowing margin of profit
causing careful attention to the danger
of over-production at the mills. In wool
ens nnd worsteds mills are running a
substantial part of machinery and have
been booking more forward business.
Overcoatings are well cleaned up. Tha
New England shoe factories are quite ac
tive and there is quite a demand for

DRADSTREET'S Til A II ES REVIEW
Plrst Touch of Winter Weather
Helps Retail Trade.
NEW YORK, Nov. 17. Bradstreet's to
morrow will say:
Lower temperatures with snow or rain,
the first touch of real winter weather, In
fact, has been a distinct help to retail
trade in seasonable wear and there also
has been a nercetitihle stimulus ulven tr
Jobbing re-order trade to fill out depleted
siocks. ah parts ot tne country have
benefited, the northern sections narticn-
larly so, and some improvement is even
noted in southern demand, though low
cotton lias been a bar there to fullest
activity. Holiday trude is also- mora
favorably BDoken of than at anv urAv lot i
date this seabon. Collections are not
much better, but reports note a slight im
provement at some eastern and western
centers, thouirh remaining- unoualirindi v
slow at the south.
Amonar the Industries the features ara
a rather more optimistic, feeling. Iron
and Bteel are more active, though .prlcea
are no better. Reports of more wide
spread buying of railroad cars, rails and
locomotives are current. The coal trade
has been benefited by lower temperatures,
affecting domestic house demand, and
by apparently better call for manufactur
ing purposes. The woolen goods trade is
more busily employed, and raw wool Is
active despite the talk of possible tariff
revisions. Cotton goods are Irregularly
affected. .Prices tend to ease. Print
cloths are slightly lower, but. there Is In
some quarters more of a disposition to
take hold for spring. The leather trades)
are more active at firmer prices and
iiijcuur prices lor snoes are Indicated.
