LONDON, MONDAY.—Wheat: The cargo market is dull and slow, which is partly owing to the ab- sence of American advices. Moreover there is hardly any demand for consumption and no evi- dence of any speculative interest. Sellers, how- ever, offer sparingly, and most descriptions of wheat are steadily held. Maize is fairly steady at Saturday's decline for near cargoes, and for shipment therp, is no change. Barley is the turn easier. Oats firm. At Mark Lane the attendance was moderate, and trade was quiet all round. English wheat is steady but inactive. Foreign is quiet but fairly well supported- Flour is nominally unchanged. Maize is not active, but prices are 3d better on the week. Barley is quoted 6d higher, but trade was slow. Oats are 3d to 6d dearer. Beans and peas quiet and unaltered. CATTLE. LIVERPOOL, MONDAY.—The supply of stock was much larger than last week. Intelligence from the colliery districts whpre the men are on strike report a gre it tailing off in the consumption of meat, and customers from those districts were only buyer.; at much lower prices than last week. Trade bad all round except for a few prime ani- mals, which mflde last week's prices. The quota- tions are as follow:-Beef, first class, 6$d; second class, 5!d; third class, 4id per lb. Mutton and lamb, 71d to 5d per lb. Live weight cattle, 36s to 23s per cwt. At market 2,140 cattle and 17,364 sheep and lambs. LONDON, MONDAY.—The total imports of foreign stock into London last week amounted to 2,959 heads. A dull trade has characterised the cattle trade. Supplies were about the average, but there was rather a wide difference in the condition of the stock. A fair number of beasts came to hand. Really choice stock was scarce. The best Scots made 4s lOd, and rants and Herefords 4s 8d to 4s lOd, heavy Lincolns were 4s 6d to 4s 8d per 81b. Inferior and secondary qualities were difficult to move, and were weak in value. The sheep pens were fairly well filled. A slow inquiry was experienced throughout, and prices remained much about the same, but they had a weak t n- dency. DEAD MEAT. BIRMINGHAM THURSDAY.—Beef Sid to 71d; mutton 6d to 7Jd; lamb 6d to 7" Good supply, trade slow. LONDON, MONDAY.—This morning the supply was not large, but was much in excess of the actual requirements of the trade. Prices varied considerably, and dropped towards the close of business, a quantity of meat being left unsold. Inferior beef, 2s te 2s 8d; middling ditto, 3s to 3s 4d; prime ditto, 3s 6d to 4s; Scotch ditto, 3s 8d to 4s; American, Liverpool killed, 3s 5d to 3s 6d ditto hindquarters, 2s 8d fo 3s ditto forequarters 2s 4d to 2s 6d; English veal, 4s to 4s 8d; Dutch ditto, 3s 4d t) 4s 4d inferior mutton, 2s to 2s 8d; middling ditto, 3s to 3s 8d; prime ditto 4s 2d to 4s 8d; S otch ditto, 4s 6d to 4s lOd; New Zealand ditto, 2s 2d to 2s 6d; English lamb. 4a 4d to 5s; New Zealand ditto, 2s 4d to 2s 8d; larg" pork, 3s to 3s 8d; small ditto, 4s 4d to Se; and Dutch ditto, 4" to 4s 4d per 81b by the carcase. WOOL. BRADFORD, THURSDAY.—The market is steady, but quiet. Wool is well held, and where transac- tions take place the full prices current have to be paid, but purchase1* are on a limited scale, and for immediate consumption only. BRADFORD, MONDAY.—A slightly improved in- quiry is shown in some classes of wool to-day, but it is not general, and as regards actual business it is difficult to report any tangible improvement. Spinners who are anxious not to be left withont Spinners who are anxious not to be left without stock will buy a little more readily at old rates, but beyond thise limits they will not move. As a whole, the m 1rket Is firm, and perhaps rather more so than is warranted by the amount of busi- ness doing. Staplers are in a difficult position. Quotations for fresh country supplies are against them, while they are hard pressed here by the prolonged hani-to-mouth policy which consumers have pursued. There is a disposition to look favourably on the outlook for the future. Stocks in spinners' hinds are so small that a revival in trade will be at once felt, and no doubt some im- provement of a tangible character would be ex- perienced now but for the unfortunate interrup- tion of the coal strike. The market has been cleared out of needy sellers, and as values aie stiictiy adhered to it is probable that any move- ment will he in upward direction. Botany yarn -pinu'M-s have been finding business exceptionally lull for weeks past, but an improvement is ex- ■ected now, and a revival of new business in arns generally is being looked forward to. The .uarmifaeturing branch continues quiet, and alto- the workin,up departments of the Brad- n'd trade are less- satisfactory than the raw material. I
