atronser while others were hardly as

8HBBP Trade was pretty muoh the
ratne as on most daya of tho week and
there were no signs of any material im
provement In the near future. The buy
ing force appeared In the barn at about
tho usual time, but were very slow to do
business, claiming values on too high
a level compared with ganeral conditions
elsewhere. As sellers wanted steady prices
It wan some time before any trading In
either sheep or Ismbs took place and
when the majority of the holdings did
tr.ove prices generally were steady to
easier. The supply was liberal for a Fri
day and taking this Into consideration
a good many traders regarded the market
as fairly satisfactory.
On the wholo the quality of lambs was,

sheep, which consisted chiefly of ewes
and wethers, was no better than moder

inciuuea in tno xirsi suies were somo im

at at 4.60.
f eeding sheep and lambs sold in about
the same notches an on yesterday. The
demand did not seem quite as brood as
during; the frre part of the week and as
a result the trade lacked .the life that
characterised the market on tho pre
vious days. The supply of yearlings,
ewes and wethers suitable for feeder pur
poses waa extremely light, ns Is to be
expected at this time, and the receipts
of lambs were very moderate. Early In
tho forenoon some feeder lamb were
rood enough to sell at IS.C5, being the
ton for tho day.
Comparing prices with the close of last
week, fat jambs are generally regarded
as around 2S4J3SO lower, but feeder
grades nro a little higher, tho advance
amounting to at least I0315c. Killing
yearlings, ewen and wethers are In
about the same position as a week ago,
while those on tho feeder order ore any
where from 104725c higher.

Order to Discredit Man
He Would Hnpplnnt.
As a result of the postofflco agitation
friends of Congr-cssman C. O. Lobeck
are up In arms over what they oro
pleased to term an attempt to discredit
Lobeck with his constituents. John M.
Tanner, who Is said to nourish political
ambitions of a high order, Is tho target
for tho criticisms of Lobeck's friends.
The Lobeck men say that tho congress
man has done everything possible In tho
postofflce agitation and that the at
tempts ot Tanner and tho rest to work
up agitation looks ns t the agitation Is
alined at Lobeck rather than at the Post
office department The Lobeck men In
.Omaha and South Omaha say that Tan
ner wants to go to congress In Lobeck's
stead. Tanner formerly was said to liavo
gubernatorial'' aspirations, but Mayor
Tom Hoctor Is also said to havp Inti
mated that prominent men had picked
htm as a good looking- governor. At this
pass tho postofflce agitation began again,
the object of which seamy to be to dis
credit Lobeck and put him in bod with
Friends of Senator Hitchcock resent the
attitude of the ngltators toward the sen
ator over whose head. It Is said, things )
are belntr carried to his whilom editorial
writer, William Jennings Bryan.
Tanner's Interest In the postofflce mat
ter, It Is said, has much to do with tho
fact that Democratic National Commit
teeman P. I Hall Iiob a brother cm
ployed In tho local office. It Is thought
that In a campaign for congress Commit
teeman Hall would be able to deliver
much assistance to Tanner If he so
wished. Anyway Lobeck's friends say
the agitation 1b to get Lobeck's place
for Tanner and nothing else.

The saloon ot Jim Cunningham at Forty-

In tho city the police denied that they
