TWENTY-TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 23 H 1936 HEAVIER RUN WEAKENS HOG MARKET TOP PRICE STAYS AT $11,00 LEVEL Department of Agriculture Indicates Down Trend Through June. · CHICAGO, tiP)--Another slight bulge in hog receipts Thursday gave the market a weak tone and prices ruled steady to 10 cents lower. The top clung to the $11 level, however. The department of agriculture indicated that in view of expected increased marketings a downward trend in prices through June is probable Livestock men said .trade ex- pectations'of the increase in volume when the bulk of last fall's pigs begin to move to market is a restraining influence oa buyers. Receipts so far this week have ·been noticeably larger, today's run of 13,000 bringing the total to 56,000 compared with 45,000 for the same period last week and 43,000 for the corresponding period a year ago. With buyers attempting to force the cattle'market back on a basis comparable with Monday's level, which was the lowest since the fall of 1934, business in steers and yearlings was slow. Most sales were made on a weak to 25 cents lower market for better grades although commons and mediums were steady to weak. Sellers were holding some strictly good and choice steers at $10 and above but the best early bid was $9.75. Lambs were strong to 25.cents higher, with old crop offerings showing the advance. The early top for choice wooled lambs was $11.50. Mason City Livestock MASON CITY--For Thursday-HOGS Steady with packers 5 cents higb.er._ Good r n e d . w t . butch'E 220-250 . . Good rSed. wt.

NEW YORK, · tffl -- Stocks slumped 1 to as much as 8 points Thursday in a selling drive that hit most of the leaders. Rails, steels, motors and specialties led the reversal. The ticker tape got behind floor tranactions for a while. Then the activity dwindled, but there were few rallying tendencies displayed near the approach of the final hour. Cloudiness of the French financial situation was blamed in some quarters for the relapse. Case and Union Pacific fell about 8 points each. Others, down 2 to 4, included Santa Pe, Southern Pacific, U. S. Steel, Bethlehem, General Motors, Chrysler, Deere, Westinghouse, Johns-Manville, American Can, Douglas Aircraft, Western Union and Anaconda. Some resistance was shown by the rubbers, oils and utilities. · The late tone was weak. Transfers approximated 2,000,000 shares. The French franc was slightly firmer in terms of the dollar. The continued run of good industrial news seemed to create little buying support. Curb Market DOW JO.VES AVERAGES Inds.

Attorneys completed their final arguments to the jury Thursday afternoon in the $2,500 libel suit brought against Elmer P. Floy by his sister-in-law, Mrs. Marcus Floy, who charges Floy with malicious intent in signing an information alleging her to be insane. The information was dismissed after being heard by the Cerro Gordo county board of insanity commissioners. The major portion of the defense testimony, heard Wednesday afternoon t dealt with incidents during which Mrs. Floy was said to have been in a state of violent temper described variously by witnesses as tantrums and hysterical insanity.

Max Studer and John Deach, deputies at that time, answered the call to the Floy home, which is near Thornton. ·Called as witnesses by Defense Attorney J. E. Williams, the two men testified that they found Mrs. Floy cursing, raving and screaming threats upon the life of her husband. She attacked him twice while they were attempting to quiet her in the house, the former deputies said. She was taken to the county jail by the two men that night, and Elmer Floy testified that, after a talk with the deputies the following day, he swore out the information to tee insanity commissioners.

Kepler filed decisions Thursday afternoon in two cases, one brought by the Federal Land bank of Omaha, a corporation, against Alice, Clement, Daniel, Joseph, Arlene, Frances, Kathryn and Mary McDonough, and the other brought by E. J.' Murray against John Kelroy, the Kelroy Fuel and Furnace company, Mason City Lumber company, Webster-Potter Lumber company, Builders' Supply company and George A. Schriver. In the Federal Land bank's case, in which the bank sought to have the court quiet title in its favor to a Cerro Gordo county farm held by the McDonoughs but allegedly owned by the bank under a lease, Judge Kepler held that the deed to the property given to the bank was given as security and not as a transfer of property. The decree further stated that the defendants' property rights to the premises in question are superior and paramount to any rights claimed by the Federal Land bank of Omaha, and the McDonoug-hs are the unqualified owners of the prem- \ViIl Go By Plane.
