Hogs Measured by eipectatlona the hog
run waa of fairly liberal proportion. Est!
mates called for 14ft cara, or 11,000 head,
making tha total for tha two daya 1K.149
head. Thla la 3,600 amaller than laat week,
nearly 8,000 abort, of two week a ago and
4,000 lighter than for the corresponding
daya of last year,
FrrBh rorelpta In Chicago were) not bur
densome, but there waa a big carryover
from yesterday and tha market waa a con
tinuation of yesterday's late trade when
prices were considerably weaker than eiirly.
Locally, with a pretty decent run and buy
era in a bearish mood, prices rul
lower right from the outneL
Shipper purchases were very uneven
Borne of the best lights sold right t the
opening fully steady with the beat time
yesterday, but aa av general thing hogn
bought on shipping orders ware a elms
lower. Outlet was hardly as broad aa yes
terday. The packer market waa yery slow In get
ting started, sellers being unwilling to cut
loneo at the 160 declines which were pro
Stowed early. Aa vtvas the caae yesterday,
bide improved as the day went along on
thfl better kimla, but even then the buik of
the offerings Ilnally changed hands at prices
llijit were around loo lower.
Aa wan tho cane yesterday, values were
very irregular. Some of the best heavies
nmi buii-tMTt wrre not over Sft'lOo lower
at thn wi-i4i, hut generally lOo lower prices
Iwmiiht ihf bulk uf the medium kinds, while
fair to puin gmdes, especially where they
wre htKliiy mixed, were again hard to
II. Hurh MflW-ra aa were able to cash
(howfd thu grvateat decllnea of thar day
and a complete clearance had not been
mnde at a rather late hour, bids being
lacking on a number of loads.
A good share of the aales Aral made at
a spread of $16.t616.oo, but there waa
quite a eprlnkllng on down. Several loads
of the best heavies reached $11.16, within
nickel of yesterday's top. The general
u-aae wag a rouna a dtma lower.

market waa a repetition of Monday s. Good
handy fed lambs were wanted and bulk of
the Offerlnaa of this rlawi hA nmaaurl th
scales by abort ly after mldforenoon. Prices
were more or leaa uneven, but were fully
a quarter higher as a general thing and in
note looked even more. Mexicans that
could have been better finished, but were
of desirable light weights, established a new
high mark of $19.46, while other Mexicans
went at $1$.60P1I.0 and westerns reached
111.60. The beat clipped lambs offered set
a new record of $16.86, with decent stuff
There was about the same proportion of
mixea spring ismus ana ewes in tne offer
tugs aa on Monday. Nona of the aurlna
lamba were very good and they were rather
slow sale, moat of them finally moving
around 817.00017.60, The latter prluo
poutrni iwo cara or. uaniorniaa.
Old aheep were not here in any treat
numbers an", they looked to be about as
much higher as lamba. A new record of
$13.76 was made on shorn owes and there
were waa nothing real choice hero at that.
Pending the arrival of aomethlng on which
to base the market quotations of year

New York. May 16. Coffee There waa
a further falling off In the volume of
business In the market for coffee futures
today and prices worked lower under a
renewal of scattering liquidation. Possibly
the reports of unsettled conditions In Rus
ala were partly responsible for the selling
and there were comparatively fow buyers
around the ring.
The market opened $ to 10 points lower
with July selling off to 8.IO0 and Decem
ber to 8.48c, during the morning. There
was enough covering to check the decline
around this levol, howover, and the market
closed quiet at a net loss of 6 to 9 points.

The official cables reported a decline nf
300 rets at Rio, while Santos spots were
unchanged and futures unchanged to 35
rcls lower, Rio exchange on London was
6-16d lower. A correction made In the
domestic statistics showed a reduction of
333,964 bn.gR In the visible supply, owing to
the subtraction of stocks discharged at
