NEW TOItK. Sept. 19.-Through the
confused movements of stocks today it
was Impossible to trace the thread of
a predominating motive In speculatloa
Tentative crrortu to sway the market In
either direction accomplished little.
Strength of the coalers, the Hill stocks
and a number of high grade industrials
gave the list an appearance ot strength
for a time, but the advances In these
shares were offset by heaviness of Union
Pacifier, Steel, Amalgamated and the Itock
Island stocksy&nd bonds. Tho tone grew
heavy In the fate trading, resulting In the

material losses In other quarters.

FOR THE AK-SAR-BEN PARADE
So far, comparatively few owners of mo
torcycles and btcycles have entered their
names to compete In the floral parade
of Ak-Sar-Ben fame. Three cash prises,
$30, 110 and $10, are offered to theraost
tastefully decorated motorcycle, and the
best decorated bicycle.
Victor 1L Roos, motorcycle dealer, ex
pects twenty or thirty entries In each
contest. "Judging from the number ot
motorcycles and bicycles owned In Omaha
there should be a good, showing In the

OAXTLdS-For a Friday there was a
fair run of cattle, but the rharket was
Very different from the, usual Fridays
trade. Instead of being ! slow and dull
buyers of fat cattle of all kinds were out
in the yards early In tho .morning looking
for supplies. Tho trade 'became reason
ably active and the moderate offerings
were cleaned Up in very good, .season- at
Prices that were a little stronger evon
than yesterday. Pretty decent kinds of
range beef sold up to 87.70. Prices .today
are around 15Q25o higher than at the
closo of last week oa cornfed beeves..
Ilang'e beef steers are 25&40C. higher and
buyers claim that' taking quality Into
consideration the market is 50c1.00
higher in many instances' than two weeks
ago. Cows and heifer's are 25040c higher;
than last week.
The market on stockers and feeders,
waa slow and lower today. This was es
pecially tho case with stockers which
were hard to move. A slow and lower
market on stock cattle and feeders is
invariably the rule near the close of the
week And It Is surprising :that shippers
send cattle of that 'description to market
as late as Friday. Speculators had a
good many cattle on hand with a pros
pect that a considerable number- would
be carried over until tomorrow. The best
stockers and fleshy feeders advanced 10
15o earlier In the week, while the "medium
and common grades were unevenly
lower. And advance that may have taken
place waa wiped out today, so that prices
promise to be d little lower on that kind
of cattle for the week.

ers bidding prices that were all of 5lt)c
lower, the outlook for tho trade was trery
discouraging. With yesterday's weiuc
close In mind, a few salesmen cut loose
early at prices that were fully 5c lower.
Aa a rule, however, sellers held out for
steady prices, and after trying tor an
hour to fill their orders at their early
bids, buyers finally came to time and
raised their offers until they were almost
steady with yesterday's avorage market.
Aa soon aa the market took this turn trado
itvened up ana most or tne sales were
made at prices that were steady to a
shade lower. On tho extrme close oricea
reached the highest point, and .some sales
roado at this ume were yuote-i ruuy
steady with yesterday. Taking the mar
ket all the way through, values are
steady to a nickel lower. Bulk ot the
sales was made at 87.558.Ca.
Shippers bought quite freely for a
time and altogether their purchases
amounted to a very fair share of the sup
ply. Prices paid In this division were
uneven, some sales being quoted as
steady to a little lower, while others
looked to be a trifle higher. Some good
Ughts sold as high as $8.45, but the most
of the sales landed at a range of 28.0)0
Receipts were estimated at 78 cara, or
6,200 head, bringing the total for the week

cation to G.- W. "Wattles, president of tho
street railway company, requesting thai
the conductors on alt cars be furnished
with children's' half fare tickets- to be
sold by them instead of at the company's
office - only. The communication alsc
called llr. Wattles' attention to. the
negilgence of conductors In disregarding
the recent ruling. that all cars shall .wall
