The Talent did not Call it a higher Market although there were spots that recorded advances of 6 @10 cents. As a Rule salesmen were Content to part with the goods at steady to Strong Price a id congratulate themselves that they were not compelled to Kow Tow before buyers As was the Case recently. The movement toward the Scales displayed an agreeable alacrity. The Market had evidently got Down to its new gait prime native lambs sold up to $7.35 and an outside killer paid $7.25 for Nelson Morris buying purebreds. W. C. Mcgavock Quot gentlemen a tto a an outrage to Hwe such an animal go at such a Price. Cal.

Morris would begin to bid if we could offer a Little time it it _ to the fact that Quality was exceptionally Good. It was a $5.85 @5.95 Market of the bulk and the larger proportion sold at a narrow Range of $5.90 @5.95. Probably 90 per cent of the crop showed that spread. Fresh receipts were Only 25,000, and the 7,780 holdovers were largely Tail end of scalpers purchases yesterday. While packers declined to buy this stuff late yesterday direct from scalpers. In accordance with their new Rule the stuff was quickly disposed of through com Masslon House channels in the first round this morning. Exclusion of the scalper from the Trade is a self evident farce. If anything it is working to the advantage of the Small operator who takes 10 to 15 car loads Dally while the scalper on a larger scale is forced to exercise More caution. If packers intended Tom Rule to be regarded seriously the reverse has been the Case. Hogs Are in too much demand at present to impose restrictions. At the close half the Advance was. Lost but provision Trade held to tho oooo with Little stuff offered and everybody wanting it. Bulk of hogs old at $5.85�5.95, with a legitimate $6 top and an outside top at $6.05 to a Speculator. Armour s drove coot $5.90, against $5.80 and this about represented the Advance in the Opst of droves. None of the National houses were in the Market. Fresh receipt a were about 23,000. 8hippere bought 8,000. About 9,000 Ware left Over mostly in speculators hands. It was an off at the jump Market on the first round. For a time demand appeared insatiable. Then it weakened and half of the Early Advance was lost but strength redeveloped later. On the first round it was a 10-cent higher Deal than the Good close yesterday and 15 cents above the Low spot Early yesterday morning. Only Light stuff sold under $5.90. Provisions moved up with hogs. Packers especially Armour and Cudahy made a grab for the stuff in the pit sending prices to a new High level.

My sept. .63 cob he May. .441/ All wanted product packers in the Market for provisions creating a new High level. 6raim Trade was very apathetic cables promoted buying of wheat but Talent could not see it that Way. Provision Trade was animated but was a dormant Grain Deal. Everybody including Packer clamoured for hog product at the outset and nothing was available. Save that offered in the Way of profit taking. Armour and Cudahy were both in and with a booming hog Market prices skidded to a new High season level in the Grain pits conditions were reversed. Logically wheat ought to have gone higher but the Talent waa afraid of it. Cables were bullish coming a higher but the bait won unpalatable to locals. Corn was a dead dog and Oats even worse.
