PRICES STEADY TO 10 CENTS HIGHER Top $4.85; Run Is Moderate Again With Only 17,000 Head Received. CHICAGO. Feb. S. (/P)-- Commission men exerted every effort to push hog prices over the $5 mark today, but failed by a margin of lo cents. Conditions were again bullish and prices ruled generally steady to 10 cents higher with the top at 54.85. Supplies continued at a moderate pace, 17,000 being only 1,000 less than estimated yesterday but 14,000 fewer than receipts of either last Thursday or a year ago. Dressed pork prices were also buoyant. Most of the desirable hogs sold readily from 54 to $4.75. Receipts Cut Down. Sharp curtailment of direct receipts this week forced the major packers into the open market In competition with all other interests for supplies. The packers had only 1,000 out of the fresh run direct. Trade was slowed somewhat by asking prices fully 15 to 25 cents higher. Outside markets also reported arrivals far under last week or a year ago, hut the decline, as in Chicago, was not so pronounced as during the first three days of the week. Prices ranged generally steady to 10 and. 15 cents higher. Cattle Trade Strong. Cattle trade was strong to a shade higher on most steers and yearlings. Best long yearlings topped early at $7.25. Receipts were smaller than estimated. In- between grades predominated and sales were glow. Sheep and lamb receipts were also held under the estimates, but trade had a slow start. Most fat lambs were held higher at $9,65 and above, but most bids were at 59.50 and more often substantially below i that figure. Trade was slow. Aged sheep were scarce and firm. Hogs closed strong to 10 higher; cattle steady to strong; sheep steady.

NEW YORK, Feb. 8. UP)--Stocks checked their downward course with a lively rally in the late trading- today. Forenoon losses of fractions to more than 2 points were largely cancelled and many shares advanced for net gains. TJ. S. Smelting soared several points net after dipping more than 3. Montgomery Ward, American Smelting and American Can showed late firmness. U. S. Steel and New York Central got back their losses while American Telephone regained all but a fraction of a 1\'? point setback. Transfers approximated 3,200,000 shares. Depressing news waa scarce and the majority .of market analysts attributed further reactionary tendencies almost wholly to technical causes. The Paris flarup appeared to be dying down and the progress of business and industry was viewed as satisfactory. The ticker tape occasionally lagged behind floor transactions, but the activity was considerably under that ol yesterday. Foreign exchanges were firm in relation to the dollar. Grains and some other commodities recovered with stocks and cotton steadied after early recessions. Domestic bonds were in moderate supply. French loans were strong-.
