TOP JUST SHORT OF TOUGHING $5 Prices Rule 20 to 30 Cents Higher Than Friday With Trade Brisk. CHICAGO, Feb. 26. IK)--The hog market turned briskly upward today, despite liberal arrivals Prices ruled 20 to 30 cents higher than Friday and the top was just short of the $5 mark at 54.95. Resumption of liberal buying by packers from the country, they had lo.OOO direct, and substantial open market supplies, 38,000 head, were' regarded as forerunners of the check in prices when the processing tax is stepped up 75 cents to S225 on Thursday. Demand was brisk because hog purchased today and tomorrow wil )e slaughtered before the advanct m the tax. Considerable Competition. This fact brought considerable :ompctition into trade and most o :he good hogs sold from 54.40 to ?4.90. Crisp winter weather and forecasts of a broader demand for dressed pork also helped strengthen trade. Eastern buyers were in the market from the start. Outside markets also reported lib era! receipts, although not quite a heavy as either a week or a year ago. Prices ranged from 10 to 35 cents higher in fairly active trad ng. Cattle Trade Stcadv. Cattle trade was mosUy on a steady basis. Most of the choice steers and light yearlings were fully steady, but iubetween grades which predominated in the run were barely steady to weak. -Beat yearlings topped early at $6.90. Sheep trade was slow at the opening. Asking prices were 10 to 23 cents, and often more higher for good wooled lambs with best kinds held well above $10. Most early bids were weak to lower at $9.75 downward. Aged sheep were steady. j~log Markets at Iowa ml "-ltel3 Monday: me h °W 16 ° to 2" "*· i TM · 20 ° lbs - 53.8004 20; 160 to 300 Ibs. 53.8SruiJ.15; 300 to 350 lbs.

UP)-Stocks moved downward toda under steady selling. The late ton was heavy with losses of 1 t around 2 points predominating Case, New York Central and U. I Smelting declined about 2 point each. U. S. Steel, American Tele phone, Santa Fe and Chrysler los more than a point. Transfers an proximated 2,200,000 shares. Mild pessimism, based apparently on doubts rather than on definite developments, dominated most fi nancial markets. Equities dropped from the start although selling was orderly and the ticker tape was never pressed by volume. The trading timidity was blamed partly on the belief that federa regulation of stock exchanges is imminent, that the curtailment of CVVA spending may affect industry and that business unsettlemen might follow inauguration of new Washington investigations. Scattered strike situations also entered into the picture. Commodities, including wheat cotton, silver and rubber, were lower. Bonds lagged with stocks. International dollar rates were comparatively steady. Curb Market EW YORK, Feb. 20. , T . -- e curb had a rather heavy tone today.
