'. Chicago! , Feb. I. Weakness abroad In
the wheat market forced a lower opening
and closing here, today. .;' . .
A( Liverpool there- was an opening
decline of d and a closing of Wftlii
below yesterday. -
This market took its cue from Liver
Sool and May atarted at 11.09 and sold
own, to 11.09 before its slump waa
stopped. There was a fractionally bet
ter feeling- toward the closing and May
wen to ii.iu.
Most of today's loss waa In the May,
the bear interest being centered in that
optltfh. July and September cloaed at
the, same rigures as yesterday.
- A leading - grain house official said
this mornina: - . t
"Prom personal messages and reports
to the firm I am led to believe farmers
have been larae, borrowers ofmney
from country banks against cash grain
so ss to enable them to hold. -The dis
turbing of confidence bv failures anrh
as Flske and Robinson Is likely to at
tract the attention of the hanks, making
such advances and bring them to a real
ization of the fact .that compared with
everything else farm products are still
selling at very fancy prlcea and a cut
ting down of such loans is by no means
uniiKejy. i -
'If auch process should begin a lib

understand heavy advances have been
made on oats and that the farmers re

Portland Union Stockyards. Stockdale,
Feb. 3. Fact that one lot of cows
brought $4.76i94.86 in the yards during
the past 24 hours, is not the slight".-!
indication that the matket has really
1 rntuvu mm xigurc.
The sale was simply excessive qual
ity; the best cows in fact that have en
tered the Portland market durmjr the
vast pear. The same shippers, the
Prlneville Land A Livestock company,
annually secure from H to lc a pound
more for their. cows and steers than uo
Stock sent In by the Prlnevllle con
cern this year was unusually good evi-n
for the Land company and the tact that
as high a price was obtilnd for sows
as is generally offering for steers in
the local market shows In itself th.-t
the stuff must hava bean far above
others in quality.
The sale was made by tho Bnson
Commission company and occasioned not
tne silgntest surprise even. innui;n tuc
rrice received was out of reason with
he rest of the market. "I an perfectly
satisfied with the sale.'' says Henry
Halm, president of Wadhams A Co. and
a partner In the Prlnevllle Land A
Livestock.. "I believe, however, that we
would have obtained fully a quarter
more for the stock if the big loads of
stock had not glutted the market during
the paat few days."
Independent People Take the Stuff.
-The hia-h priced stuff waa purchased
by independent packers and naturally
this gives them considerable favor with
the trade. One lot of 27 cjws waa
taken at 84.76 by Blrkenfleld & Lewla
of Clatakanle, another, the hlrhevr
priced lot of 27 head at $4.86 by M. J.
Gill, a prominent local butcher.- An
other lot of 27 head was taken by nn
Aberdeen Packing company, at $4.75 and:
an equal numoer by swartzcmid & suia
berger of this city at $4.50.
General market for cattle was not
good during the past 24 hours ai.d the
Dig buyers were thererore able to cean
ud at their own flarures. That this is
exactly why they were holding off rheir
purcnaaea is tne oeiier.or the commis
sion handlers as well ia shippers la
general who say that :hcy should have
been given Detter treatment. ,ven witu
all the talk of big prices., the -eheral
market for steers does iot rvig above
$6, and some exceptionally good cattle,
although light sold 160 under that Iig
pair One Car la Today.
Only One car of cattle came into the
yards today and if shippers will keep
their stuff back for awhile it will al
low these who cleaned up the yards at
low prices to sell their low priced cat
tle at high values, and after that help
