CATTLlu Recetpta were light, ' only
forty-seven cars being reported In. In
cluded In this number were twenty-six
car ot hay-fed steers from Red Rock,
Mont, over hslf of them being con
signed through and not offered for sal
on thla market.
Aa might be expected with so few cat
tle here and aa ls usually the case on a
Friday the trade waa rather alow and
uninteresting. The salea ot beef ateera
ranged anywhere from steady to quite
little lower and It waa tne better
grades of cattle that showed the most
weakness. Light and medium gradea of
cattle were In fact fully ateady with
yesterday and were quite ready sellers In
most cases. Butcher stoca was also
stssdy and In very fair demand, prao-
tieauy all the cows and heifers oa sals
being cleaned up at aa early hour.
Tlie re were no stock cattle and feeders
of any consequence, but the feeling on
mat class ot came was generally ateady.

SHEEP Estimated receipts of sheep
and lambs, given at 8.tJW head. Included
about twenty-five ksada ot Idaho stuff
consigned through to the east, leaving
an actual market aupply that was vary
moderate. Practically everything came In
tne wool and sheep seemed to be more
plentiful then lambs. Only one string of
attractive fat lambs were offered and
with the packing demand active If not
broad, sellers were able ta obtain prices
steady to about a dime higher for ail
classes of fat stock.
The lambs were good to choice westerns
and sold for 17 86. the highest price paid
since June of 1910. No Mexicans appeared
in the display and the spring lamb trade
was also barren, despite a brisk Easter
demand for little stuff. Plump spring
lambs hare been remarkably scare lately
at all points, and are in urgent request
at SlJeS 14 and better. Shorn lambs with
finish have been selling around rooty
7 26, showing 401t76c discounts from simi
lar quality wooled goods.
Aside from three or four modest ship
ments ot wooled ewes, the market for
sheep waa nothing more than a nominal
affair. Early ewe sales were made at 16.7

LEAD IN RAILROAD SIGNALS
British CUlm of SapeHarity Over
. Eaistlas Systessa la I sited .
, State. '-- '
H. Ray nar Wilson, writing to the editor
of the London Times In criticism at
a ' statement which suggested that all
etflcleat railroad signalling devices ema
nated from th t'nlted State, sayg that
credit must be given Amertc for two of
the appliances that haws been adopted on
British railways. These are th "dead
man haadie" and the automatic train
control, but there has as yet been no
need lo Install th tint lock, although
exactly tb same conditions as are con
sidered necssssry for lu us oa Amer
tcaa roads are to be found her. Inter
locking at conflicting points and signal
and ths use of the lock system are purely '
Brltiah ideas, and also the control ot
the outdoor signal by th block Instru
ments and th control ot the Utter by
tfco trains. Track circuits are generally
assumed to be aa American invention. .
but any division of sections ot ths lino
by means of insulated Joints waa antici
pated by William Bulla English patent.
No. 2,40) of lias, the writer claim. Mr.
Sykes used a track circuit ta 16. Bat It '
was aot until 171 that Franklin L. Pop
put one oa the Boston A Lowell railroad.
While the earliest . automatic signals
those fixed by Thomas S. Hall, ia 1817
were American, there was admittedly In
corporated in the method of operation
the Idea contained la th patent -of Mr.
Tyer. an Englishman, of l&s.
Another point where the human agent
haa been controlled, L e, a signal being
raised to lbs "dancer" position by a
train, independently of the signalman,
waa dona by Kvkes, Tyer, Hodgson and
other In the TFa.
One Rem Is, however, aot mentioned,
and that Is htcomotlv cab signals. Ths
writer says "4 hare the Americana
beaten,' Sine June, 1904. th Interatats
Commerce eommtsstoa has been Inviting
and Investigating designs for automatic
train control and cab signal But, aa
yet, no cab signal, and only one system
ot train control for (team trains, Is under
trial to any extent. On the British ..
Greet Western railway and th North
eastern railway, however, cab signals
have long since passe 4 the trial stag

Tyer took out patent in which, by
electrical mesas, ha warned a station of
th approach ot a train, and gars "stop"
and "all right" Indication oa the en-
The. fact Is." says lr. Wilson, "wo
bar llttl to learn from American rait-
ways, either tn signalling or metliod of
operation. The two countries are alto- .
rether dissimilar. I know everything that
haa been and Is being don In signalling
In America, and I can state with confi
dence that th automatic signalling in
stallations on the electrically worked
railways of London and ths power opera,
tins of point and signals there, at Quvs
gw Cmtral, and elsewhere, ars greatly
superior to any to be found la America.
Thar are many appliances In use in ths, .
United States that call for praise as
being tngentoua but (heir us is often
open to grave danger, aa. for Instance, .
the substitution of track circuit to hold
facing points when trains ars passing '
over them. Instead of locking bars, or,
aa termed In America, detector bar.
There an evils associated with the latter, '
I admit, .but the combination ot th me-
chanlcal with th electrlcal-reUla th ''
