Hog Hog receipts were very generous.
though they tacked quite a bit of equaling
th record run of a week ago today. Ken
matao called for 171 car, or 17,000 head,
and th total for the two days of 19,642
head la 4.600 larger than a week ago, 6,000
heavier than two week ago and an 1,600
lain over the corresponding day laat year.
Th opening waa very draggy. neither
ihlpper nor packer doing much th early
part of th morning. Buyer were alt out
for declines of do to lOo and sellra who
did not think conditions warranted ucb
larg reduction refused to do anything until
they had given th market a good try
out. Other points did not report such se
ver breaks and local value are not any
too high compared with the price being
paid elsewhere, so in view of tne way tne
big runs laat week were absorbed at steadily

lower, the accent being on tbe lOo part ef
th quotation. Trade never became very
lively. Trains dragged In all forenoon and
as sellers had not uuit looking for nrlces

had sold, It took them about a long to
let loose of th later arrivals aa it had th
arly one. At midday beat weighty hogs
war still gelling for as good figures u
they would have brought at any time of
day. but all other classes) were wanted at
even weaker prices than early, some that
sold about noon being a big 40e to pos

Sheep A liberal sheep and lambs run was
In sight for today, some sixty-nine cars, or
if.700 head, being expected to show up.
This would make the total for th two
days 27.161 head, aa compared with 28,901
laat week, U 141 two week ago and 10,111
a year age.
The lee ling was good from the outset, It
Being apparent that buyers wanted lambs,
and that they were holding back only oa
account of tbe tataneaa of trains in errtv
lng. It waa pretty well along toward noon
before much business was transacted, but
when th trade once did get started It was
fairly acUv at prices that wr aleedy to
as much aa 10c higher, moot of th lambs
that were in by noon having been cleaned
up. A good share of the desirable handy
westerns sold at 114.11914.24 and some
114.60914.10. the latter price a new record
for the market. A decent sort of moderate
weight sold downward from tl4.ll, and
some extreme beavlea brought 111.76.
stature stock showed If anything more of
an upturn than iambs, though the iuddIt
waa very fair, movement starting In pretty
good season on a strong to mostly 10916c
higher baais. Several loads of the decent
to good ewes sold around til. 00, while some
of the best here reached tll.069ll.lt, th
latter prto being th days top and a rec
ord for the market. Tearllag sold at 111.16

WHEAT PRICES 00 HIGHER
Omaha, Fehruary 13, 1907.
The cash grain situation was excellent to
day, and while the market was not very
strong, the bulk of th-j offerings sold pretty
well up around Saturday' level, although
corn was quoted about unchanged to c
The demand, however, for ererytning was
xcellent. and. while the table were loaded
with sample received since Haturday, the
trader had little difficulty In disposing of
their offering at very good prices. Tho
wheat market generally was quoted from
unchanged to lc higher, and while moat
th samples were or tne naro wimer
variety, there was a keen demand for both
is spring and mixed varieties, oom oi
hlch sold at firm prices. The quotations
on No. 2 hard wheat were tl.71 and 11.80,
the No. 1 bard 11.77 to 11.71, wnne tne

2 durum sold at 1.78, No. i aurum
brought from $1.71 to $1.71, and mixed
wheat ranged In price from 11.76 to 11.77.
The com market was sugntiy weaaer, ana
while there was a good buelneee done In
this market, the trade was confined to I he
commercial grades, the demand for the
lower grade being rather alow.
The oats market seemed to be pretty
active and prices on this article were about
unchanged, tne NO. wnne equina ir
64c and 66c and tbe No. 4 whit nailing
around 64 c. )

Chicago. Feb. 12. Bearish sentiment re
garding wheat received Impetus today from
Washington report that were taken to indi
cate a growing likelihood of extnalve forci
ble measures to protect American interest
on th high seas. largely In consequence
early advances In prices were more than
offset and the market closed 91c net
lower, with May at $1.72 9 1.74. and July
at l.4l9l-4R. Corn loat 91c, oata

Sharply In contrast with late decree-
Ion In th wheat market, the feeling at th
outset waa notably optimistic aa to the out
look for higher price. Repora of the de
parture of nearly two score merchant afatpa
from tne Virginia cape. 1 nouna for
rope, and convoyed by BrtUoh cruiser, had
done much to encourage the bulls, and there
was further reason for hopefulness on ac
count of weather conditions that promised
to diminun congestion or railway leclltttaa.
As th day. wore on, however, the Inability
rf the roads to receive or ship grain from
Chicago tended te chill enthusiasm on tbe
buying aide. Then came Intimation of
movement to start food export embargo
resolutions through many state leri latere.
Downward swings in wheat prices reached
a maximum during th laat half ef the
ion, when reports from Washington were
current which seemed to point te such ac
tion as arming of all merchantmen and the
mobilisation of hundreds ef submarine
chasers, weakneaa of values, especially
the final hour, was also due in part to th
absence of any new export buying either for
neutrals or tne entente antes.
Corn gave way with wheat and as e result
01 mild weatner tnar would naturally lea
demand for feed. Besides, an Increase
country offerings was reported. Oats sagged
owing chiefly to the heaviness of other
grain. There waa some unloading, too, by
no icier wno were unable 4o Obtain
for hi omenta from her.
Lower quotation on hog pulled down
provlatoaa. The lessening of export acted
also as a weignt on in maraet.

John N. Willys, president df the
Willys-Overland company of Toledo
and one of the most prominent figures
in the automobile industry today, will
attend the twelfth annual - Omaha
automobile exposition which will be
held at the Auditorium February 26
to March 3, according to word that
has just been received by Manager
Clark G. Powell.
John N. Willys, in less than a de
cade, 'made the Overland company
one of the very largest manufactures
in the United States became one of
the leading captains of industry in
this country, and compiled for him
self a fortune reported to be $o8,WKJ,
000. That Mr. Willys, who ordinarily
finds time only to visit the two na
tional shows at New York and Chi
cago, intends to be present at the
Omaha exposition this year shows the
importance with which the local show
is regarded by the big men of the in
dustry, and Mr. Powell and his asso
ciates were very much elated when
they learned of his intended visit.
Gold Auto Coming.
Another bit of good' news came from
the Studebaker factory. It contained
the information that the famous
Studebaker gold automobile would be
sent to this city. This gold car is
the evolution of the gold chassis v
which was shown here last year and
created so much inlerest The gold
car is valued at $30,000 and is said to
be the most expensive automobile
ever built. Four hundred ounces of
rwnety-four-karat gold were used in
the construction of this machine. All
the metal parts are plated with gold,
the body is white enameled, the up
holstery is white, as is the Victoria
top. It is said to be a most striking
exhibit, and at the Jfew York and
Chicago shows was regarded as the
biggest attraction of the displays.
