their opinions by making liberal sales
even on tho advancing market. During

nit almost complete reversal of condi

NEW YORK. Jan. I6.-There was no

narrow and comparatively few of the.

nbovo or below vesterda s Hose The
market weakened toward the close and
net elDiuses of the leaders were small.
The steadiness of the list todnv seemed
to be: due. Ies to Improvement In senti

was recorded and the fortnightly Euro

IIOOS Mostly all the buyers were ac
tive unite early this morning and their
first bids Indicated some strength In the
trade as compared with yesterday. Spec
ulators and shippers bought a little more
than of late, consequently competition In
tween buyers was moro keen than for
several days back, (leuerally speaking
the whole buy I up force paid prices pretty
much on the same level. IhUB making tho
trado verv even In comparison with the
last two days. The big bulk of tho offer
ings passed out nt first hands largely at
prices ranging from (7.05 to (7.25, being
about a nickel above the majority of sales
on the day before, The most popular
prices were (7.10, (7.15 and (7.20, with a
top at (7.80 for several loads. As was
the casei on the last few days, light hogs
and tho mixed grades received most of
the advance In prices, practically all of
that kind being fully Cc higher. While a
good many hogs on the heavy order
shared In the nickel advance, there were
somo no better than strong and still
others that showed little It any Improve
ment. Most ot the liberal supply was dis
posed ot In an active manner and n
complete clearance was effected at a
very satisfactory hour.
The supply amounted to about 173 cars,
or 12,300 head, being larger than Mst
Thursday and two weeks ago. but in the
neighborhood ot 3.040 head short of a year
ago. A good many light hogs continue
to show up, but the receipts run largely
to the heavy grades.
