the session. Word of a rapid decrease In
i-tocka at Liverpool waa coupled with
predictions that continental Kuropo
would soon be purchasing freely. In the
lomeetlo field, there waa soma attempt
to start a crop scare regarding lata sown
wheat, but so miu-n snow waa reported
to be still on tha ground In Kansas that
th effort fell fist
The decrease In the vlslbls supply of
wheat proved as less thaa had been

largest thus fsr thw year, stocks todsy
continued their advance. The move
ment lacked aome of Ita recent breadth,
but waa none the less effective. The
rise wss recorded In ths fscs of such
conditions as ths refussl of ths railroads
to grant wags Increases to their en
gineers, further unrest at several do
mestic Industrial centers and continued
deadlock In the British coal strike. Ths
counteracting Influence wss another ad
vance In copper ahares.
Taking today's top figures as a basis,
prices sbow gains of u, to SO points for
the month. A canvass of ths conserv
ative element In the financial district
throws little light on ths Improvement
In ths market situation, other than tha
belief that it has Its gsnesls In better
mercantile and political conditions. It
Is no less sppsrsnt that the market
Is largely In the hands of skillful specu
lators. levelopment among the copper shares

the market's strength today. Meutl and
kindred securities sold st best prices In
sorfie months, while some attained their
lushest Quotations In mors than a year.

proof of the existence of an enormous

price of the year. United Hlatrs Hteel
shared this distinction for a brief period.
The market msds Its first hslt in
ths last hour, at which time ths heaviness
of Must Amalgamated Copper and Union

to .their starting point and Indicated that
offerings had created another stats of

CATTLE Cattle receipts were a fair
average for a Monday, being lust about
ths same as one and two weeks ago.
snd only a few hundred head Isrger than
for the corresponding dav a year ago.
Buyers of beef steers were out In ths

and evldentur wanted ths csttle but then
toeaa old not entirely coincide with sell
ers' Ideas so that the market as a whols
ws rathsr slow. The prices paid were
lust about steady with Friday's lower
close, but were not so good ss those
psid on Thursasv. Tne qusllty ot the
csttls wss very poor mere being nothing
choice In the yards. There were, how
ever, some csttls good snougn to bring
Cow and heifers were In very fair
demsnd and ths trsds wss reasonably
active on that class of csttle. Ins
price paid were luny steady wttn last
week's close.
Desirable graoes ot reeoing came, ins.
la, cattle having quality ana carrying
tome little fletn. demanded good llrm
prices as compared with lsst weea. The
lighter and interior sino oi came u
not show very much change, selling gen

Khout thirty loeda In all fully one-third
Lot the total receipts.
Packers were less aiscnminating man
shippers and bought freelyl all along

SHEEP A heavy supply of sheep and
lamb, together with bearish advices
from ths east, enabled packers to dictate
prices, moet classes of stock ruling weak
to lower. Trade wss uneven and slow
In stsrting. but bear sentiment we pro
nounced In sll quarters and cheaper cost
Inevitable. Fst lambs outnumbered sheep
by a liberal msjorltv. snd In most in
stances fat lambs suffered the greater de
clines. Karlv sales Indicated a market
generally rut) lie lower, with sheep sell
ing weak to a dime off.
Receipts were estimated at about S0.000
head, a total tlMtt Incladed twenty-five
or thirty doubles of western stock con
signed through to eastern feeding na
tions. Offerings usually carried very fair
flesh and big bulk ot the run came In
the fleece. From all reports, very little
sheeting will be done this spring by
sheepmen hsvlng strings ready for mar
ket, as premiums for wooled stuff ars
unusually wide this sesson.
No toppy ssles were made during ths
fore part ot the session and prices quoted
cannot be credited with tested orcuracy.
Good western lambs sold around ti.uv. In
dicating a possible top of 17 K for choice
Mexicans Fat ewes were In more active
