OMAHA, Jfov. S. Mil
There was a complete routing of the
bulls In wheat and corn markets yester
day. Prices, however, showed losses of
only HtT'.ic for the former and Qlo for
the latter, Tho range of prices and the
ClOSlnrs for thn rtnv fn 11.71 In roflrnt the.
almost complete change In sentiment,
which Is decided bearish. There were
many of the shorts In wheat and corn
to take profits and this buying proved a
sensational break. The longs In the two
cereals refused to place their crops In the
shape of buying orders under tho market,
but stood Idly by and watched tho bears
kick and cuff the market until they be
came weary. As Is always the case, on
declines like those of yesterday, the men
who believe prices are low enough Btood
in the gap and absorbed the offerings.
iTiere was little to encourage the bulls,
put from their appearance they doubt
less felt as If it would only be a day or
two before tho bears would exhaust their
?Srt.? RI"1, many 0f the sellers of yes
terday would be seen on the buying side.
!fL.a We! knw" ct that both the
December wheat and corn show signs of
congestion whenever the shorts In theso
months make an attempt to cover. The
e"s..ln b0,h trains assert there will be
a i'V51" .day for them a II wl take
good buying power to absorb tho cnsli
grain which is now being offered, or
wh'ch will be offered later on. This Is
the case especially In the corn, which is
expected to come forward in good quan
tities under more favorable weather con
ditions. Those who look tover the dally
receipts In lh various positions without
glvlnx them a second thought, say the
ypring wheat movement will 1)8 cur
tailed further with had weather. The
falling oft In receipts at Minneapolis and
Uuluih is credited partially to the lack
of empty cars In North Dakota,
Cash wheat was unchanged to lie
Cash corn was unchanged to He higher.

Primary corn receipts were 651,000 bu.

also current that the, amount of wheat
held by farmers In the Dakotaa and Min
nesota was only 36.000,000 bushels as
against 140,000,000 bushels a year ago.
Corn prices hardened on account of re

CATTLE There were not enough cattle
today to make a market, but for tho
week receipts have been n"Uo liberal, al
though showing a falling off as compared
with last week and a heavy decrease as
compared with a year ago. The market
on all kinds of cattlo has been In very
unsatisfactory shane as viewed from a
seller's standpoint. This has been due to
the large receipts at Chicago, which
have comnletelv demoralized that market
Tho break at Chicago has extended to all
other markets, even to those having oniy
moderato receipts. This' market has suf
fered along with others.
The supply of cornfed cattlo has con
sisted very largely of the half-fat steers.
for which tne demand is never very
good at this season of the year. They
have been, working steadily .lower all tho
week nnd have caused a bresk even on
the best cattlo. At the close of the woV
It Is safe to rav that the market on corn
feds Is 50c lower than last week. Range
steers, while In better demand than the
half-fat cornfeds, have declined In sym
pathy with the break on other kinds, and
they are.2S50c lower than last week.
Cows and heifers have been more or
less uneven all the week, but have been
gradunlly working lower, the decline on
the general run of stuff amounting to H&
40c Canners have not shown so much de
cline as the ht'tter grades and thoy are
ltttlo If any lower than last week.
Blockers and feeders havo been break
ing down by reason of tho slump In fat
cattle prices and poor buying on the part
of the country. The country can hardly
be expected to buy cattle freely when'
fat rattle are selling to such poor ad
Nearly every yr the country makes
the mistake of overloading the market
with half-fat beeves Just befpre the holi
days. That Is the worst season of the
Whole year to market such cattle, as the
market is never gooa at tnat time when
poultry Is so popular with consumers.
Considering the. demoralised condition of
the market east. It would be a wise move
If shippers would "withhold cattle frrm
all markets for a few days until the glut
can be overcome. In fact, moderate ship
ments should prevail until the close of
the holiday season. To sacrifice half-fat
cattle at the present time Is tho height
of folly, when there Is every reason for
Deiieving tnat all tne rat -catt e In the
country will be needed for beef at fair
prices oerore tne close of the wjnter.

HOGS Supplies were llDeru! for a Sat
urday, about 133 cars, or 10.2S2 head being
reported In. For the week the total Is
CI 743, about 16,500 larger than last week
and over 1,000 head heavier than a year
ago. This Is also the largest since the.
last week of June, when over 68,000 were
With men a generous supply In sight
and other markets reporting decided
breaks, local buyer started out bidding
sharply lower. A few sales of heavies
made during the first rounds were pos
elbly no more than a nickel lower, hut
the bulk of the heavy and butcher offer
ings sold at a decline of fully MrtOo and
In many cases looked to be a flat dime
lower. Most of the sales of tho more
weighty stuff were made at J7.6W7.70 and
some good stuff reached 37.80, Just a dime
lower than yesterday's top.
Light hogs wero In very Indifferent de
mand nnd as a fair oharo of tho receipts
was on tho highly mixed and light order
they were pounded even harder than the
heavies. A very fw sales made, early
were possibly no moro than 610o lower,
but these were scattering and the major
ity of the sales looked to be fully 1015c
lower. Trndo on this sort of stuff was
Very slow, nnd it was lato before It was
all celaned up. Prices quoted ranged
largely from 37.00 for highly mixed lights,
to 17.60 for pretty good s(Uff weighing
around 2u0 pounds.
As was the case on previous days of
the week, there was llttlo dotnand for
Pigs and prices were quoted as fully 25e
lower, whllo some traders wore dt tho
opinion that tho decltno amounted to
even more than that.
Tho main feature of the week's market
was the extreme unevenness evidenced in
tho prices paid for light hogs and' pigs.
Wlih little or no demand for this sort of
stuff, values have slumped sharply, and
today's figures ore anywhere from 15c
to as much as 2&tjX0o lower than a week
ago. Pigs look to be around 60it75o lower
for tho week. The markot on heavies has
fluctuated a good deal, but today's prices
are nearly steady wtlh a week ngo.
SHEEP-A usual on a Saturday, no
fresh receipts arrived this morning. For
the week, however, tho receipts were a
llttlo below normal for this time of the
year, being estimated at 67,665 head,
against 81,778 head last week, 06,763 head
two weeks ago and 60,226 head during
the same time a year ago. The quality
of the offerings was very fair and very
little. It any, dttferont from that of last
week. The supply of feeders formed n,
smaller proportion of tho receipts than
during the last week or so.
The market on killers was more or less
erratic on most days of tho week, ns
prices dropped considerably during the
first days, but mado sharp advances
toward the close, leaving the general
trade in -nbout he same position aa nt
tho close of the previous week. The best
lambs on Wednesday sold tip to $7.30, nnJ
as much as 37.40 was paid on Thursday
and Friday, the bulk of the good ones at
and near the close moving around 37.000
7.26. Borne fleshy grades that a week or
two weeks ngo went to the feedor buyers
are now going to the killers around 1105
U6.75. The supply of aged sheep consisted
almost entirely of fat ewen and these
made a top of $1.30 for tho week on
Friday. Most of the good ones are picked
up at a range of $1.000125. There wero
not enqugh wethers or yearlings here on
nny day to make comparisons.
Feeder lambs are still quotable any
whore from $5.60.60. with the fleshy
grades going to tho country at $6.65. Tho
supply was comparatively light, and tho
demand correspondingly so, though very
good for the time of the year. Prices are
regarded as steady with a week ago. In
aged feedor offerings the most Interest
was in feeder and breeding owes with tho
bulk of such kinds selling at good, strong
prices, all the week. Strictly feeder ewes
aro quotable anywhere from 13.23 to $175,
according to weight and quality.
