Cattle Receipts were fairly liberal for a
Friday, 3,709 head, but the five days' supply
39 600 bead has been 1,000 short of a week
ago. Trade in beef steers was very unsettled,
owing to the congestion of the railroads, and
while there was a good Inquiry for the
strong weight and desirable quality steers at
steady to strong prices there was very un
certain and unsatisfactory outlet for the
medium to fair cattle at barely steady fig
urea. It was the same way with cows and
heifers. Some of the more desirable grades
as well as canners and cutters sold as well
as on Thursday, while the general tone
to the trade was rather weak than other
wise. Desirable beef steers are closing about
15 26o higher for the week, but there has
been no material change In tho market for
the common to fair steers or the general
run of butcher stock. In stockers and feed
ers the supply was tolerably liberal today
and the demand rather slack. Prices were
unevenly lower and trade rather slow.

Hogs There was a heavy, run of hogs
on hand this morning for a Friday and
tho trade opened with both packers and
shippers bidding and later buying hogs at
prices that were steady with yesterday.
Trade was fairly aotive and offerings
changed hands on the early rounds readily.
The best price was 416.20, steady with yes
terday, while the bulk of tho offerings
moved at $16.916.1. , There was still a
fair share of tho offerings in first bands
around 11 o'clock. .

SheepThe' run of sheep and lambs
was rather light, most ot the early arrivals
being killer stuff. Packers seemed to be
pretty well supplied with dressed meat, and
inability - to unload has caused the falling
off of the demand generally. Opening
trade was slow this morning. A short
deck of light lambs fairly well finished
brought $18.99. Shipping orders were
scarce, and packers very slow to take hold
of anything heavy. There were) very few
fat sheep here, and prices were nominally
steady and the demand fair. Foeders were
about the same as yesterday, being limited,
and only a fair demand. Ewe lambs sold
at $17,26.

Cash corn sold off sharply,, declining from
2e to 6c, the bulk selling, down 3o to 4c
Sellers were not willing to accept the bids
offered very readily and this caused a slow
trading market. There was a good local
demand, espeol-" from elevator men. Food
administration officials aro making further
efforts to obtain empty cars for the loading
of corn during the cold weather, in order
to save a large quantity of the soft stuff

Sever Cold and Prospects of More Tends to
Hardest Corn Prices.
Chicago, Jan. 18. Severe cold and pre
dictions of more tended today to harden
prices in the corn market Latest fl 7ures
were 31.27. January, and $1.2491.24.
May, unchanged to e higher, aa com
pared with 34 hodrs before. Oats gained
9e to e. The finish In provisions
rartged from 2e decline toa rise of 30c.
Traders in corn, as well an in other
staples, needed no other reminder of cold
than was brought sharply to, notice by the
Icy temperature of-tho exchange hall and
by the. complete absence of telegraphers,
owing to strict application of the govern
ment fuel orders. An improved demand from
food Industries helped also to give firmness
to the market, as purchases were resumed
which had suffered interruption because of
temporary doubt as to whether elevators
and dryers were exompt from the coal
saving which bad been required of business
In general.
Oats showed greater strength than com,
owing to extreme scantiness of receipts and
renewed export buying. Slowness of the
movement of oats to. market was partly
ascribed to preference given corn.
Provisions averaged higher. Influenced by
the upward slant of quotations on hogs and
grain. Reports were also current, that there
were large orders In sight from the food
Butter Market unchanged.

Bralilstrert's Review of Trade,
New York. Jan. 18. Bradstreet's tomor
row will say:
Willingness to do business on a large
scale has been restricted by heavy snow
storms In the west, by Intense congestion
in railway facilities, which has made it well
nigh Impossible to ship fuel or other sup
plies, and finally the fuel administrator's
order closing plants for five days and every
Monday for ten weeks has thrown vast
numbers out of employment. I'nder the
circumstances it is obvious that the week
has been marked by considerable unsettle
ment, but, after the first shock it is quite
generally recognised that the fuel adminis
trator's order, while drastic, was necessary,
and the general tendency Is one ot pa
trlotlo obedience to the mandate of the
Ah for some time past governmental busi
ness takea precedence over everything else.
In ordinary trade circles jobbing business
has been curtailed by Inability to get ship
ments with which to fill orders, but po
tentially there Is a large volume of busi
ness in sight. House trade which, of
course, results from the buying of visiting
merchants has been retarded, because me
teorological conditions have crippled travel;
but. n the other hand, country merchants,
especially in the surplus crop growing reg
ions have bought freely of staples, their
stocks being low, and in consequence trav
eling men are forwarding good slsed or
ders. Indeed -buying from the country dis
tricts is marked by reorders and by re
quests to hasten shipments ot spring goods.
Weekly bank clearings, $6,103,080,000.
Boston Wool Market,
Boston, Jan. 18. Wool The Commercial
Bulletin tomorrow will say:
"With confidence In the wool situation
somewhat restored through the modification
of the trade board's Import regulations,
came the order of the fuel administrator
curtailing manufacturing In tho textile
mills and consequently curtailing business
In the wool merchants' offices to the great
annoyanre of the trade, which has had
nearly enough problems to meet In the
last three years and more of war. Busi
ness In the trade in the earlier part of
the week was a fair volume and fairly well
distributed with prices, firm throughout the
list? At the mills the only news Is with
reference to fuel and the action ot the
fuel administrator." 3

Inauguration of Government's
Fuel Regulations Causes De
cided Diminution in Value
of Business Transacted.
New Torli. Jan. 1. Inauguration of
the government's conservation regulations
caused a pronounced diminution In the
volume of business on the atock exchange
today. Trading was accompanied In
frequent pauses, transaction barely total
ling 465,000 shares.
There was some apprehension before
the opening of heavy liquidation by spec
ulative Interests at Industrial points, but
commission houses reported few offerings
from such sources. Selling came chiefly
from professlonalsa who succeeded in dla
lodglng a few ''stop loss orders" on the
early decline.
Observers of the market expressed the
opinion that a conservative altitude would
continue pending adjurtment of the pres
ent difficulties.
The money market hardened, call loans
again rising to six per rent with a slight
stiffening of time rates. Foreign ex
change reflected the stabilising process
now under way. rates on I'arla again fav
oring that capital.
Pools 'were aotive In I certain stocks, no
tably shippings, oil and tobaccos, but In
general the movement was restricted and
meaningless. Leaders recovered the
greater part their ,1 to 1 point recessions
before the close. .
Bonds were firm on limited trading.
Libert SHs sold at 98.60 to 96.19, first

Income Tax Blanks Reach
Omaha After Long Delay
After weeks of waiting a supply of
income tax blanks was received Fri
day at the office of Internal Revenue
Collector Loomis. They are being
mailed to Nebraskans with taxable
incomes of $3,000 or less for single
persons and of $4,000 or less for mar
ried persons.
A different type of blank will be
provided for persons with incomes
higher than those figures. These are
expected next Friday or Saturday.
Postmaster Fanning has compiled
a list of all Omaha postal employes
who have taxable salaries. They
number a little more than 400, most
of these being unmarried persons
with incomes of $1,000 or more. He
turned the list over to the internal
revenue collector's office.
Loomis Gets Interpretation
Of Dividends as Income
United States Internal Revenue
Collector Loomis received a letter
from Daniel C. Roper, United States
commissioner of internal revenue,
stating that stock dividends, declared
and paid out of earnings which have
accrued since March 1. will be
regarded as "income" in the returns
of individuals under the income tax
law of September 8, 1916. and the war
income tax law of October 3, 1917.

coal for vessels and it ought to have been done weeks ago.

man soldiers turned loose in this country would not create the havoc
this order does.

William M. Wood, president of the American Woolen company, de

American soil, lost the first battle against Germany.
Fred H. Gillett, Massachusetts, R The order will mean millions of
dollars loss in wages and millions of dollars loss in production, ai
calamity because of the way Germany will interpret it.
F. J. Garrett, Tennessee, D Asked Gillett had consulted any demo
crats before bringing up the matter. . v : j-'
1 Louis T. McFadden, Pennsylvania, R If the kaiser had sought to
bring about a coup, it could not have been better arranged than the
Garfield order.
Jacob E. Meeker, Missouri, R I resent the cry of partisanship'
whenever any one on the republican side indulges in constructive,
criticism. 1",
M. B. Madden of Illinois, R I denounce the order is unnecessary.
Simeon D. Fess, Ohio, R The country is willing to submit to any:
inevitable injury necessary to win the war, but will not tolerate in
sufferable orders which result from inefficient administration.
Allen T. Treadway, Massachusetts, R If ample reason can be
shown for the regulation, good may come from the order by awaken
ing people to a realization of the seriousness of the situation and need,
ot action.
