IZP--Storm- bound railroads and'weather interference with unloading and yarding facilities in the local stockyards, resulted in few hogs, being placed at the disposal of buyers. Prices soared on active shipping buying and packers, who expected, 16,000 directs out .of.the fresh run of ~38;000 came into the market for butchers and lights at 25-40o higher prices. Medium weight butchers sold at $7.85 during the,first rounds and $7.90 was bid freely for selected light weights^ On the whole railroad service was good, only 136 cars out of a total of 1,035 estimated for the day,' fail- Ing to arrive at local .terminals :because the opening hour of the nlar- ket. Moderate' receipts of cattle estimated at 11,500, many of them delayed, stirred buyers to activity. With much of the cattle country tributary to Chicago hit by the blizzard which made -most 'roads impassable, lighter runs were looked for during the next few -days. Higher prices were asked and trade had a definitely stronger tone. " Sheep and lamb receipts of 20,000 including 7,000 forwarded direct to packing plants were larger than .a week ago. Eastern demand-for mutton has shown no Improvement and commission men were not able to capitalize on storm conditions in this branch of .the market. Hogs closed active and strong at early advance 1 .' Cattle finished mostly 25c up and -iheep mostly 25o higher.

According to Bow, Jonas, a rate of over S3 per cent of capacity was reached as March opens against 52 per cent .the preceding'.week, 79 .per cent, a year ago, .'and 03 -per cent in 1929. When adjusted for the 1 usual, expansion _that ordinarily occurs :ln the spring, the Index 'or steel Ingot output shows -no :change 1 from: the 65 per. cent of normal level :reached the. preceding week. The increase In the operating rate this week contrasts with a year r agp, when the decline set In rapidly Rafter February. The Increase represents largely, an accumulation of small ordersMrom miscellaneous . sources fcheduled For ,prompt shipment. ^ - "Reports are current that the backlogs o£ the U. S. Steel corporation at the close or February will show the first idecfease compared with January since 1827, but the Iroii Age stresses Ihe How of shipments as more "Significant than the Increase of contract obligations. -The..reports of fabricated structural Bteel. shipments and .bookings Indicate an excess of shipments with rare exceptions since February, 1030."

There was riot much In the way of news; The farm board was credited with havttig aold some hard winter to Antwerp, and the seaboard reported about 400,000 Manltabas tafcen, Liverpool was strong all day, and reported a lack of pressure. We do not expect the government report to have much effect on wheat. . CORN--Tha Increase of 1,32-1,000 bushels in de visible supply was larger than expected and it turned early -buyers of corn into'sellers. As In wheat, action was light, awaiting the government report. The cash market had a firm tone. Bookings to arrive were 02,000, Including 50,000 bushels from terminals, nome of which waa booked Saturday. Professionals .were · disappointed at the action of futures, In view of the light receipts and prevailing weather conditions, and appeared bearishly Inclined most, of tne day.

MOTORS ACQUIRE FAVOR OF BULLS Traders for Advance Unable to Keep List Headed Up After Middav. NEW YORK, March'9. UB--Bull forces shifted their favor from the electric power shares to the motors in today's stock market but were unable to keep the Hat headed upward after midday. The market wobbled uncertainly during the afternoon. ^ Trie news of the week-end included reports of moderate improvement in automobile sales' and further gams in steel mill output in the Youngstown and Chicago areas. The advance in share prices was checked by flurries of selling in the oil and motion picture issues, and in U. S. Steel, .which slid off more than a point. Both General Motors and Chrysler rose a point to new high prices for 1931. A few shares surged up 3 to more than 6 points, including! Electric Autolite, Auburn, American Woolen preferred,' Case, General Railway Signal and Bonn Aluminum. Shares up 2 or more in-' eluded Nash, liack Truck, Eastman and Timken Roller Bearing. A wide assortment of issues sold up a point or more, including Studebaker Stewart Warner, Borg Warner American Telephone, General Electric, American Can, Montgomery Ward, Sears Roebuck, Wool worth and Kroger. In the oils. Standard of N. J. sagged 2 to a new low for 1931. Atchison lost 4 points, Allied Chemical 3 and North American Warner Bros, and North American lost a point or so. Speculative sentiment was confused and uncertain after sharp breaks in the market last week, the technical rebound on Saturday Pools in the motor and merchandising issues put their favorites forward on the theory that the Increased veterans loans should stimulate sales. The preliminary, estimates of building activity in February lead to the hope that a turn for the better is taking place. The money market maintained the firmer ,-tone which developed last week. Call loans renewed at ly, per cent, but commanded 2 cent in the early afternoon. STOCK LIST NEW YOBK STOCKS. NEW YORK, March 8. u-- final Quotations.
