Cattle There was a fair run of cattle
tor it Thursday, about 1,100 head, and the
four da ye aupply thla week baa fallen only
about 1.000 abort of laat week's heavy run,
Pol lowing Wednesday's somewhat demor
alised trade the market today was tn much
the same condition with bids unevenly lower
all around. Choice beeves were compara
tively scarce, but receipts Included an un
utually large percentage of half fat and
graaay light and medium weight stuff.
Karly bide were all of 10 to 16 cants lower
than yesterday and good weight steers are
, now selling 26 to 86 rente lower than a
week ago, while the decline on the yearling!
has been anywhere from 86 to 76 cents.
There la usually a sharp break In the fat
tattle market every season about the time
the western and southern grass cattle be
gtn to run, and that seems to be what Is
the matter with the trade this week.
The market on cows and heifers wae
also demoralised, with the grassy and half
fat cows selling 10 to 16 cents lower than
yqtrday and anywhere from 60 cents to
1 11.60 lower than a week or ten days ago.
Veal calves are a little lower for the weak
and there has been a further decline In the
market for bulla. tags and rough stock
Trsde In ttockers and feeders has been
very light this week, and while supplies
have been small, the demand has been even
smaller, and the trend of values has been
lower. Prices are anywhere from 60 cents
to 31 lower than they were t week or tin

Sheep Offerings of sheep and lambs were
the heaviest of ths week to date, twenty
one loada, or In the neighborhood of 6.000
head being reported In. The four days' total
amounts' to 16,288 hesd, which Is a1 few
hundred hesd smaller than for either last
week of two weeks ago, and a shortage of
2w,A00 head as compared with a year ago.
Yesterday's prices -tiers proved to be by
far ths highest of any of the western
markets, and with more breadth to offerings
the trade reacted today. As a general things
lambs were a big quarter lower, opening
sales being S6c below yesterday's closing
rounds while soms of the stuff thst sold
later In ths morning was If anything down
a little more than that. This means thst
yesterday's upturn was Just about all wiped
out, though prices were still higher than
at any of the other markets.
Clipped lambs were again almost entirely
larking. A good many springers were on
offer, fair to good native gelling mainly at
a sp ead of 317.00018.26, while a string
of Idabng sold at 318.40. This shipment
ws by ths way the first of any slae to, be
received on this market from that elate.
Almost everything haa crossed the scales
by shorty after 10:3.
The same Irregularity that was noted
fn lambs was In evidence tq th mutton
trade. While some of the earlier business
was done at prices thst looked right close
to steady the general tono of the market
waa easier, and there were sales that look
ed aa much aa Jfco lower. Decent to good

CHICAGO tiHAJN AND PROVISIONS.
Notice That FuUro Trading Would Boon
CostM Cauaes Light Activity la Wheat,
Chicago, June 28. Authoritative notice
that even restricted trading In wheat for
future delivery soon would be a thing of
in pei cauaaa Dullness iti tnat oereal to
fade away to a shadow today. At the close
the market was steady, lo to 4o net lowor,
with July quoted at 12 .01 and September
at 21.81. Corn finished unchanged to He
higher and oats up H0o to 202 o. Pro
visions scored gains of a shad to 6c.
Jntereat of wheat traders centered al
most wholly in Questions as to ths methods
to ne adopted for government oontrol of food
supplies. Jttght at the outset prices dropped
quit sharply on account of prospects of
immediate embargoes to reduce exports to
European neutrals. l-ater announcement
that th ad m Inlet ration at Washington
would completely dominate th distribution
of wheat, both for domestic and export pur
poses, and that option dealings in wheat
would be ahollehed, brought the market
nearly to a standatlll. Business In the future
delivery ceased altogether for an Interval,
but no further decline was noted in valuea.
Although no action has been taken lo
remove the maximum price limit on corn
and no such action Is contemplated, the
corn market made a temporary upturn,
owing partly to mlitaken Inferences that
complete removal of all checks on high
prices of corn might be looked for. Slgna
of active demand from exporters tended aiao
to give strength to the market, but rains
In Kanaaa, where drouth had been com
plained of, counted tn favor of the bears.
Oats, like corn, developed a tendency to
jump, owing more or leu to wrong conclu
sions that the maximum price limit on corn
might be cancelled. Besides, crop reports
were leas favorable than recently hae been
the rase and there was continued llbetal
buying on seaboard account.
Support from packers mora than over
came declined In the provlelon market. The
transient weakneai waa associated with the
mall nets of shipments as compared with
a yesr sgo.

NEW STREET NAMES
City and Postoffice Authorities
Flan Changes to Avoid
Dn plication With
Municipal and postoffice officials
have co-operated in the preparation of
a tentative plan to correct the streets
of Florence and Benson to conform
with the general street scheme of
Greater Omaha and also to eliminate
duplication of street names.
Thirteen streets of Florence, having
names corresponding to other streets
in Omaha, will be recommended to be
changed as follows:
Davenport to McKinley. Pacific
and Jackson streets to Hunt street
and Howell avenue, in honor of A. B.
Hunt and R. B. Howell of the water
plant, as these streets lead to Minne
Lusa pumping station. Jefferson to
Tucker, tor F. S. Tucker, mayor of
Morence many years, and who recent
ly lost his place on account ot annexa
tion. Madison, Harrison and Monroe
to Mormon. Brigham and Young,
memory of the early Mormons who
made their headquarters in Florence.
Adams street will be changed to Key-
nolds, in nonor of Captain Reynolds,
whose name is closely identitied with
the early history of the water plant.
Faniam is to be changed to King and
Washington to Craig avenue, the lat
ter for J. Y. Craig, superintendent of
rorest Lawn cemetery. . Briggs will
be changed to Jfotter. lavlor to Web
er and Spring to Plant, in memory of
To Conform With Omaha.
It is further proposed to have a
north and south streets in Florence
conform with the numbered streets
of Omaha, which will necessitate
changing Main street to Thirtieth
The names of Omaha's east and
west streets will be extended through
to the west limits of Benson, with the
exception that part of Main street in
Military avenue will bear the latter
name and the remainder will be
known aa Maple street. Benson's
numbered streets will conform to
those of Omaha proper. The street
half a mile west of Fifty-second

tight, less than a qusrter Inch In most
of th, southern and western counties. It
was heavier, ranging from half inch to
one end one-half Inches In (he central and
northeaNtern counties. Th.re was an abun.
tlanoe of sunshine and corn made a rapid
growth, but 1. still backward. The stand
is unusually good, cultivation has pro.
ceeded well and th. orop is mostly clear
of weeds. Oata Is In excellent condition
exoept tn the southwestern counties, where
dry weather ha caused them to head short.
Wheat ha. grown well, but would be bene
fited by rain ia the southern counties, as
v td also gardens anil potatoes. The
first cutting of alfalfa Is about finished
In the oentral and southern counties and
progressed well In the northern. The crop
was secured with little damage from rain.
Pastures are good and grass In meadows

Some Omaha Grocers Make
Reduction in Potato Rates,
Following Cut in Chicago
Potatoes dropped 60 cents a bushel
in some of the leading grocery stores
in Omaha yesterday shortly after
noon, after the report came out they
had dropped that much in the whole
sale market in Chicago.
Some grocery stores in Omaha held
the prices up and refused to make
Charles Trimble of Trimble Broth
ers' Commission company at noon
said there Had been no drop in the
prices in Omaha. Some buyers, how
ever, found their grocers willing to
make the cut in the afternoon and
give them the advantage of the drop
in the wholesale market.
From Wichita, Kan., came the re
port yesterday that while potatoes
were still selling for $4 a bushel in
that city, they were selling for $1-50
a bushel in Oklahoma City, a short
distance from tllWe. The freight be
tween the two cities is only 18 cents
Potatoes, the Wichita Eagle says,
are offered in Oklahoma and Texas,
with no buyers, while they sell in
Wichita at $1 a peck.

street and the farthest street on the
west city limits will be Seventy-second
The city engineering department
has these proposed street' change
plans. City Commissioner Jardine
will be pleased to consider sugges
tions from citizens who may have
ideas other than those outlined.
These changes will be embodied in
an ordinance and presented to the
city council at an early date.
