CATTLt) Receipts of cattle wera ex
tremely light this morning only eighty-
nine cars oeing reported In. Still there
wea a very fair run for New Year's day,
being considerably larger than a year
It was very evident that packers
wanted a few killing cattle and they
were out In the yards early this morning.
Anything carrying flesh met with very
ready sale and the yards were cleared
by 10 o'clock in the morning or soon af
ter. The prices Paid were at rone- to 10
cents higher than last week's close. This
would apply to beef steers, cows and
heifers equally well.
in the feeder division the situation was
Just the opposite. The severe cold wea
ther has limited the demand for feeders
and stock cattle with the result that there
were very rew country buyers In this
morning. On the other hand speculators
were apparently afraid of the near future
of the market and they were holding
back and not trying to do very much.
Cattle having any kill sold to the packers
at goou prices out tne medium to com
mon kinds of feeders and stock cattle
were nara to move and Drloea were

H041S like most New Year'a markets.
today's hog trade was a small affair, in.
volvlng the sale of only an odd forty
loads. The packing demand opened early
and active and clearance of the bulk
was made within the first hour of trad
lng, prices ruling 5rrl0o higher. The im
provement, especially at mldsesslun, was
very pronounced, but inquiry slackened
toward the close and a few scattered
loads, unsold late, had to move at shaded
figures, as compared with those In force
Miippers ana speculators bought spar
Ingly. as local values are almost on
parity with those In the eaal. and the
absence ot a Working margin woe directlv
responsibie for outside orders calling for
less tnan a nan aosen loaas.
Not much change developed In the
spreads between lard, butcher and bacon
weights, the best heavies selling at the
top, with common lights at the bottom.
Smooth hogs, weighing 2M pounds.
brought as much as t17H, wii.it high

SHEKP Parkers cleaned up the limited
receipts of fut lambs without any q nih
il. .tig or delay, paying prices about a
dime higher for anything fit to kill. Im
provement was warranted by aluea at
other points, but the fact that local sup
plies navs Deen unuer requirements lor
some lime past furnished the best argu
ment for a higher scae of quotations.

proved separate and apart from proof
of the killing while the accused Is In the

might well find from the evidence, be
yond all reasonable doubt, that the ac
cused planned to waylay, assault and rob

of them and beating the other so that he
died, the triers of fact might logically

evidence that his person was searched or
