CATTLE MARKET PRICES WEAKER Only Fair Demand for Bee Acts as Drag Upon Values. CHICAGO, Feb. 26. UP)_The ties competition that has been seen in the hog- market this week bro prices back another notch towarc the levels prevailing on Monday, a the start of trading today. Weight from 170 to 210 pounds came int their own again, alter a bad sea sion yesterday, ana sold tally 10 t 15c higher, with the early top a 57.50. Butchers scaling 240@30C pounds sold to shippers and packer at $S.75@7.10. This activity re suited largely from the fact tha there were only 16,000 hogs on sale and 3,000 of those were unfinishec kinds held over. Local packing houses took the other 10,000 of th total run of 23,000 on direct con signment. Only fair demand in all the east ern markets for beef, with the ex ception of Philadelphia, *hich wa poorest of all accompanied by weak er prices yesterday, acted as a draj on the early cattle market here. Al tho for the select shipping- yearling; and steers there was ] the usua steady demand. No further price reductions were asked, and seller, even expected to bring plain steers selling at the start at $7.25 to $9.00 a little higher, in line with the ad vance of strong-weight steers. Sup plies of 5,000 head at Chicago bro the week's total to 29,800, agains 38,200 at the same time last week Encouraged by the failure of sellers to get higher, prices yesterday buyers came out with lower bids oa all grades-of fat lambs today, and altho a few finished loads were hek at $8.75 to $9.00, the trading vntf done early on $8.40 to 8.60 kinds any of which were westerns weighing 95 Ibs., and less.

Ollpham and company. The average dividend f r o m 90 representative torn mon stocks on the New York exchange, according to the firm, was 5.11 per cent Feb. 18. This compares with 2.51 per c e n t from 17 stocks in. Paris on Pet*. 5, 3.96 per c e n t from 15 stocks in Brussels on the same dale 5 per cent average f r o m 25 slocks on Feb 10 in London and 8.74. per cent from 34 stocks on Feb. 6 in Berlin. The yields in Berlin. Incidentally, are subject to 10 per cent special tax. The markets abroad as well as here have risen since these dates so that the yields have generally shrunk further. Considering the Tower structure o money rates in this country with the ban 1 .* rate En New York at 2 per cent, the lowesi in history, the comparison is regarded at especially favorable. SOLD OUT IMPRESSION E V I D E N T IN SINCLAIR Tlie relatively small amount of activity in Sinclair consolidated common lias Impressec t h e bulls on the stock who regard this as indicating a "sold out" condition. The re cent turnover in tho stock of only scvera thousand shares a day is In contrast to 100.000 to 200,000 shares in the past. Due to the priority of Ihe approximately S83.000.001J 01 bonds and preferred stock; slight f l u c t u a - tions in the earnings are quickly felt by tlie common outstanding in the amount of 6.100,000 shares. Sinclair, in common with other companies, was affected by unfavorable conditions in the induslry last year as a result the forthcoming annual statement is not expected to make a favorable comparison with tlie showing of the preceding year!

STOCK MARKET MOVES FORWARD Trading Shakes Off Load of Impending Liquidation in Climb. By CLAUDE A. JAGGER. NEW YORK, Feb. 20. OP)--Having shaken off a load of impending liquidation, the stock market moved forward afresh today. U. S. Steel common was suddenly jacked up to the best levels of the new year, but bullishness "again concentrated on the electric power issues. Some of the steels, electrical and railway equipments, and miscellaneous manufacturing issues miulfi good headway, but most of the rails, oils, motors, coppers and merchandising issues held back. The advance in U. S. Steel approached four points, and Bethlehem, Gulf States and Republic preferred made gains almost as wide. Utilities rising 2 to 5 points included American Water Works, Electric Power and Light, American Power and Light, North American, Public Service of N. J., United Gas improvement, and Standard Gas, all of which recorded new high for 1831. General Electric, American Can, Westinghouse Electric, Underwood Elliott, Loews, du Pont and American Locomotive gained 2 to 3, and Eastern Auburn and Macy rose 5 or more. Simmons gained more than 3. In the rails, Frisco dropped 4 to a new low. Gillette was a weak feature, losing 3. Montgomery Ward lost more than a point of yesterday's gain. Speculative sentiment in Wall Street remains preponderantly bullish, acknowledging that the market's recovery has run well ahead of the pickup in business, b,ut pointing out that troublesome situations are out of the way and liquidated, and stock now for sale can be disposed of leisurely, so there is little in sight at the moment to check the advance. Call money continued a little firmer, with little available under the official rate ot 1 \k per cent. STOCK LIST ' YORK STOCKS: NEW YORK, Fed. 26.
