CATTLE Cattle receipts wer very
liberal for a Thursday, 163 car being
reported in. Today recelpta make the
total for th -week todate 16.690 head, a
gain of 6.0ml head as compared with the
came day last year.
Fortunately the local demand for beef
steers was very fair thla morning and
anything at all desirable commanded
steady prlcea as compared with yeaterday.
On the other hand cattle that were espe
cially pleasing In buyer' eye sold to a
little ootter advantage even than ye
tsrday, or around loo higher than Tue
day, .Cattle, which did not appeal espe
cially to tn Duyera were slow and Moid
era of such cattle could not see any lm
provement in the market.
There wa no material change. In the
market for cows and heifers, prices con
tinning about steady with yesterday.
Which means that the market is a triti
better than It was on Tuesday
There were very few stock cattle or
feeders In sight, but the feeling was that
anything desirable would command good
in in privea.

lltt strength early in shipping grades.
but prlcea settled back Into steady notches
aa soon as outside orders wer filled,
larger packing droves wer put up at
cost levels almoat Identical with those
of yesterday, th demand from local
quarters proving tardy with movement
Receipts amounted to fully 115 loads,
mostly light butcher and bacon averages,
the ram aa recently. Shipper and specu
lators favored offerings weighing around
li.Arti2.6o pounds and bought freely al
tha start, furnishing an outlet for fully
one fourth of the total supply. Quiet
trading Outing the Utter part of the
session delayed clearances undl well along
Heavies, butchers and lights domanded
at the high, middle and low pleads,
respectively, and margins between the
three claafcea remained unchanged. The
best lard anlmaia uu sale brought lt. 15,
aiso yesterday a top, while bacon and
hluh mixed stuff sold largely under tha
64.UU0 mark. There were not enough pigs

the Treasury MacVeagh. presiding over
today's Session of the American Economm
association, defended President Taffa
tariff policy and endorsed the work ancl
report of the tariff board.
Prof. Henry C. Emery, chairman of U14
tariff board, declared that at the outset
he opposed the theory that an equitable
tariff could be adjusted by a discovery
of the cost of production, and doubted
tha ability of a commission to get such,
information, but he told of the help which
manufacturers and producers had given
th board. He aald he believed the re
port of the board on the wool schedule;
and Its conclusions formed a correct
basis for new tariff rates.
Prof. Ji. Parker Willis of Georg Wash

production" basis for tariff adjustment.
Prof. E. V. Robinson of the University
of Minnesota said a protect I v tariff
