pared with the first half of last week
and of over 4,000 head as compared with
the same period a year ago.
Early advicea from eastern points Were
discouraging and it looked very much as
if the market at this point would be
slow and possibly a little lower again to
day. Buyers first bids Were In fact lower,
but as It became apparent that the demand
was reallly quite good and Uiat there waa
Ho big surplus -or cattle on sale th

and heifers were In verv fair
demand and they commanded at least
steady prices. The big bulk ot the offer

morning, practically even-thing belnar

8H KB P -The trade In the sheep barn
claimed only two actual submarkets, th
tame as yesterday one for fat lambs
and one for fat ewea. There was prac
tically nothing on sale In the way of
wethers or yearlings.
Receipts were limited . to about 7.000
head, all corn-feds, and the pacalng de
mand waa sufficiently active and brosd
to produce an early clearance. Steady
prices were paid all along the line, but
high quality stock with plump finish drew
the best Inquiry and sold first.' The price
range In both branches of the trade re
mained wide, fair to choice quality offer
ings moving within a spread of fully 75c.
The best fat lamba available landed at
$8.10, Identical with yesterday's top, and
good classes changed hands around $5.bVfj
o.76. .Strings selling below $6.40 were not
very respectable. Fat ewes made a cred
itable top of $.1.C5 and other desirable of
ferings brought $3.60 and less. Cull
classes Were purchased around $3.252.75
a low spread . that bag been recognised
for some time past.
Feeder trade wag small and uninterest
ing, the few sales In this branch of the
market ruling steady. Yesterday's en
tire purchase on country account
amounted to less than 1,000 head.

ArTalTBs Trasts la Address
CLEVELAND. Dec. 27. Senator Pibert
M. La Foltetta made tha opening speech
of his speaking campaign for the presi
dency here tonight with an assault on'
tlm supreme1 court, an attack on the re
publican national committee, an arraign
ment of the trusts and an enunciation o(
hla ideas for the cure of evils resulting
from the present system of government.
The criticism ot tha supreme court was
the most bitter yet heard from the
Wisconsin senator. It was predicated on
tha recent rulings ot the court In the
Stanard Oil and Tobacco cases. The
rule of reason was denounced as a "pro
found revolution in tha position of the
From this Mr. La Follette launched
Into a discussion of Elbert H. Gary's
plan for federal regulation of prices as
a relief from monopoly, Mr. La Follette
said ha had no patience with this method.
In his analysis ha went fatther and said
that ultimately the government would
have to tlx prices ot labor, hours of
employment and compensation of orig
inal producers In order to fix accurately
the prices to be offered the consumers.
Instead of the Gary plan or the Taft
plan ot g federal license for Incorpora
tions (Senator La Follette proposed Ms
own plan for a commission on restraints
of trade to relieve the country ot the
condition In which he finds It.
Deaoaaee Tariff Law.
Although Senator La Follette made no
direct reference to the president nor sug
gested his own candidacy he Included in
hla speech a denunciation of the Payne
Aldrich tariff law Immediately following
his praise of labor orftanltatlona and Ms
opinion that the Sherman anti-trust law
did not contemplate their regulation.
'The passage of the Payne-Aldrlch bill
YVQg the most outrageous assault of
private Interests upon the people recorded
In tariff history," he said. He criticised
the proposed national reserve association
of the Aldrlch monetary plan. "The
greatest menace to competition at the
present time Is the control of oredlt and
the concentration of money In the hand a
of those who control the trusts," ha
The progressive movement, Mr. La
Follette declared, has as itg aim tha res
toration of the government to the people.
"Tbe real cure for the ills of democracy
Is more democracy," was one ot his
epigrams. "That Is what the struggle
In Wisconsin, In California, in Ohio, and
Pennsylvania, New Hampshire and
Kanaaa, and In every other atate In thla
union, means; that government shall be
brought hack to and committed to the
hands of the people; that they are su
preme over legislatures, over government.
over presidents, over constitutions, over
courts," he asserted, '
Senator La Follette castigated - the
aupreme oourt by assorting that It had
arrogated to Itself far greater power
than had been conferred upon It in the
original contemplation ot the constitu
tion. ' Attacks Boprente Co art. .
"The -very backbone of true 'repre
sentative government Is the direct par
ticipation in the affairs ot government
by the people through tilrect primaries
for the nomination of candidates," he
said. He declared that the old machine
politicians had lost control In Wisconsin
through this law. He also favored the
presidential primary system. Of thla
"If there is one thing more than another
that haa been put to the front in this
campaign by tbe progressives, it is th
demand for the- election of delegates to
the national convention by popular pri
mary elections, and a provision by which
electors may directly express their choice
for presidential candidates upon their
porty ticket. This proposition has been
opposed by the national republican com
mittee, and by machine politicians every
where. They dread to give up that
peculiar power that caucuses and con
ventions give them. They fear the
secret ballot that enable men to ' vote
their convictions and judgment, without
intimidation or espionage."
The senator's speech dealt with the
recent action of the republican national
committee in leaving it to the govern
ing committees of the party to direct the
manner of selecting delegates. "The
national republican committee is almost
wholly composed of men opposed to the
primary principle," he asserted. "At
its recent meeting In Washington- this
committee went on record, not only aa
opposing voluntary primary election in
states where there is no law providing
for them, but by falling to directly
recognise the law In those statea that
have provided for the election ot dola
gatea to the national convention In
"Thus this reactionary commlttea,
flagrantly sets at naught the will of the
people of these great states that have
repudiated the caucus and convention
system. Such a policy will not . tend
to strengthen the party with the people.
We are fighting this thing and will
continue to fight it until In every state
primaries will be provided by law, which
will give to every voter the means of
directly expressing his choice of can
didates to go upon party tickets, from
president to coroner."
