18 CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 18 1931 EARLY HOG PRICES STEADY TO STRONG CUT IN RECEIPTS HELPTO CATTLE Interest Quickens as Delay in Railroad Service Cuts Supply. CHICAGO, March 18. (S--A steady to strong price schedule kept the early , hog top stationary at $8.30. Estimated receipts of 16.000 hogs fell below the number indicated by advance railroad · reports and arrived late due to a new snowstorm.- Local packing plants .-received 3,000 hogs direct and 6,000 ·were carried over unsold from the previous -day. Initial trading- was not extensive, but as the buying movement g a t h e r e d momentum 'price's strengthened and $8.20 to 58.30 were paid for selected 180 to 190 Ib. weights. Heavy butchers were wanted at $7.50 to $7.65. ; Interest in cattle was quickened "by the fact that railroad service was delayed so that more than 100 cars of stock out of 550 estimated to arrive failed to unload before trading got under way. Adverse weather conditions slowed down local switching facilities. Packers showed a mild interest in offerings estimated at 7,000 and eastern. operators wanted good to choice, steers and light butcher stock. Initial demands were for stronger prices. Packers reported 1,500 Iambs received on direct consignment, a substantial portion of th'eni from Texas. Open marke^ offerings amouil ted to less than 10,000^,and a broad potential shipping demand keyed sellers to demand the highest figures of the season for choice fat lambs. Hogs closed steady to 100 higher. CatUe finished steady to 25Q tip and eheep with most of the early, advance lost.

Market Notes By TICKER TAPE . Grains developed a more distinct advancing trend late today, influenced by a report from the Farmers' 'National Grain company that domestic stocks of wheat on farms and in country elevators were 50 per cent less than, last year in important sections. Tfie report covered both the whiter and spring - wheat areas of Kansas/ the spring wheat area of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana and parts of Nebraska and Colorado. Reductions were ascribed to heavy selling by fanners to- raise tax money "and to unusually heavy livestock feeding. ·Wheat closed firm, 5ft@l^c advance; oats provisions varying -from rise of 2 cents. higher; corn H @ H c up, and lOc decline to a CHICAGO UVESTOCK CHICAGO, irarch IS.

The big operators are said to be still bullish on the utility stocks, especially those concerned with the United Corporation-Consolidated Gas group. Aggressive buying went ahead IB these Issues and -while they sold off with the general list the declines were held to narrow limits.

PAINE, WEBBER DISCUSS DOLLAB . With attention focused' on .rising .quotations and dividends, long-pull holders of stocks are prone to overlook the need for considering stock price trends in terms of a stable unlt,bf purchasing power,-Paine, Web- ber.and company point* out in discussing the purchasing power of the dollar In their semi-monthly review, which goes on to fifty: "If a given portfolio-of stocks doubled In price between 1910 and 1019, for examnle, the purchasing price of the holder (neglecting dividends) was unchanged because in the some period the value of money as reflected in general commodity prices *n* been cut in half. Funds received from the sale of these stocks in 1919, aUho twice the original investment made In 1915, -would -have bought only the same amount of merchandise as could have been obtained earlier , In the year with funds then an. hand, LONG PULL HOLDER ** CONSERVES 1*UHCIIASE POWER "Under such circumstances, the long-pull holder bad merely conserved his purchasing power by owning stocks. On the other hand, retention of funds In the form of cosh during that four-year period would have resulted in halving the owner's - purchasing power. Conversely, In a period of rising; value of money, .such as the recent past, the purchasing power of the Investor is actually increased by holding funds In the form of dollars or their near equivalent in high-grade bonds, notes, etc. Thus, since the mid-point of 1929, the value of money has appreciated 26 per cent, whereas, the pr]ce-of average industrial stocks has depreciated some 33 per cent." ; 150-173 Ibs. ?6.B5; 175-220 Ibs. »7.30; 220-280 Ibs. 57.15; 280-300 Ibs. 56.85; 300350 Ibs. 50.55; over 350 Ibs. 56.25; good packers 55.80; fair packers- S4.80.

Today wheat, after slipping slightly at the start to a new low for the crop in September and near If for the July,, held steady until the last hour, when a strong, turn at, Winnipeg and a run In corn brot in sufficient short covering to close wheat at about the best of the day. There was not much in the news to Influence the trend, so .the market appears to have been governed for'the most part by pit conditions. Exports reported as 100,000 Manitobaa In all positions. The farm board was credited with offering No. 2 hard winter at the gulf at about ISc under Chicago old May. The No. 2 hard afloat was reported as offered at equal to 74^6c cif the United Kingdom. .Buenos Aires did not show much change. ' That market will be closed tomorrow, wheat under present surroundings becomes easily oversold. CORN--Corn was on . the upgrade most of the day. Relatively ^imall receipts and a fairly steady cash market were factors. Shipping sales showed a decided Improvement over recent days, and were N75.0QO bushels. Bookings to arrive were* 33.000 bushels including 25.000 from other terminals. The market was likely oversold yesterday and when shorts covered today, on strength of wheat, -prices moved to the beat of the day. The greatest part ot Illinois and Indiana had fairly good snow or rain today, but this was not much of a. factor. We are still friendly to corn oh recessions. Liverpool due %c higher.

Union Pacific and New Haven recovered, losses of'about 3 and 2' points. Atchison dropped 2, then more than regained its loss.. New York Central sold off about 2 to record another minimum, then recovered. American Telephone and Westinghouse Electric were under pressure.for a time, but rebounded. An encouraging ..item in the weekly steel trade reviews was the report by "Steel" that a leading U. S. steel subsidiary will increase prices for bars, plates and shapes 51 a ton after lApril. . Comparison Good. The weekly report of the electric power consumption, covering the second week of March, showed a reduction of only 32-5 per.cent from a year ago, the best comparison so far this year. Freight car loadings, as "reported from the first week of March, showed a substantial rise from the preceding holiday week. Call money was again abundant, and quoted at 1 per cent in the outside market. The bond market turned hesitant, hpwever, .on a Washington report that veteran loan demands were exceeding expectations and the treasury may have to sell another large offering of notes or bills shortly.

There's a decayed sort of wharf, close by, which looks very much as tho the safes had been hauled or rolled across it Now comes .the deduction. We have already, you will remember, deduced the existence of a. motor-boat of sorts. Now it was high water yesterday . evening at about half-past six. At that time the motor-boat could have lain alongside the wharf. I suggest that, in fact, she did so, and that the cases were loaded on to her. If she was big enough to carry them, she was certainly big enough to cross the North Sea in fine weather. "Look how neatly that disposes of the difficulty of opening the cases. Once out of sight of land, her crew could get busy with their oxy-acetylene flames without the slightest fear of attracting attention. Orlce they were open, and the stones' removed, all that remained to be done was to pitch them~7 overboard. I think you'll agree that I was right when I said that they would never Bb seen again. As for the lorry, the energetic Pollard is wasting his time, I fancy. It had done its job as soon as the r safes were unloaded. It was driven to yoiir'romautic Suffolk lane and abandoned, mainly as a convenient way of getting rid of it, but, incidentally, with the idea of drawing a red herring across the trail." For some moments Sir Edric made rib reply. "Your imagination seems as brick as ever, Dick," he said at last. "I don't deny that your theory is possible, even probable, but it ;seems to me that there are precious few facts to support it. Of course I'll make Inquiries all along the riverside, and I'll have a sharp watch kept on every motor-boat, or small steamer for that matter, entering the port, for I take it that they'll--come back some time. I confess that I'm glad I brot you back to London." "Since- you tiragged me back, I'm going to stay for a few nights," remarked Dick. "If I've earned a good mark this afternoon, may I be rewarded with an opportunity of indulging my idle curiosity? I'd like to have a look at that place in Hatton Garden tomorrow morning. I'd say this evening, but it's already too dark to see properly."' "Yes, I suppose you can go along if you want to," replied Sir Edric. "The placets full of policemen: you'd better take one of my carda. and they'll let you in. Pollard's in Suffolk, as I told you, so there's no fear of you being arrested at sight."
