years they have devo'ed their eneraies
to the building up of this most splendid
store and the people of Oregon City are
deservedly proud of the showing they

holiday season their store has been
crowded by holiday purchasers and hat

Burmeister & Andresen that make Ore
gon City one of the liveliest and best
cities on the coast.

Union ritat Company Announces De

PROVISIONS ARB LOWER. ,
The Union Meat company announces
eeverol changes in the local prices of
provisions. Breakiast bacon is quoted
about 1-2 cent lower, while regular
snort clears, clear backs.smokei and uu
smoked, are quoted 1-4 cents' a pound
lower, both kettle leaf and steam ren
dared lard of local manufacture are 1-4
cent lower today. The new price list
takes effect at once.
EGGS TUMBLE AGAIN.
,As was exclusively predicted in Tbe
Journal on Saturday the price on fresh
Oregon egga weit down today. This
morning tound the market weaker than
on Satarday and everywiiere could be
seen stocks of eggs that refused to be
sold. Although the receipts of eggs in
this market at present are not very large
still the present high price is causing
the demand to be small and as )a con
sequence the few arrivals are hard to
8f 11. Today the price went down to 32
1-2 cents a dozen fiat and still the market
remained auiet. Home of the dealers on
the Btreet expect the price to go down to
the 30 cent mark within they next few
IS THE POULTRY MARKET,
mere wereano very tieavy arrivals in
the poultry market today but the mar
ket is still badly overloaded with the
large receipts of Friday and Saturday.
In tbe clean up ou Saturday some mixed
chickenB were sold as low as 8 1-2 cents
a pound but the average sales were made
at 9 cents. The call for straight hens is
now off, tbe dealers preferring to buy the
mixed stocks at the lower price. The
receipts of dressed poultry are beginning
!o pile up larger but there seems to be
a fairly healthy demand. Some turkeys
are arriving and are being sold all the
way from 19 to 20 cents for tbe dressed
stocks. No live birds came in today but
as yet none are wanted. The future of
tbe turkey market remains a mystery
and will probablr remain so until after
Christmas. Larger receipts will have a
disastrous effect and the present rate of
arrivals will bring about the same prices
as on Thanksgiving. -
NOTHING DOING IN POTATOES.
. There is absolutely nothing doing iq
the potato market as far as shipping
demand is concerned but in the local
market tbe demand for nearly all grades
seems to be sligthy improved. Today's
reports from Ban Francisco say that the
market there has no signs of an advance
and none are expected until after the
holidays if then. The onion market
remains the same nothing but dullness.
Price iu both lines are unchanged.
, LARGE HOP BALE REPORTED.
The first large sale of fancy bops for
several months was reported on 8atu
day up the valley. It was that of Pat
terson Bros, of Olequa to Tacoma parties
(306 bales of fancy hops at 23 1-2 cents a
pound. The Bales of the medium grades
continue quite large with prices tuling
touay lr, ni 18 to 20 cents.
BUTTER BTILL DULL,
The creamery butter market remains
dull, with every prospect of its continu
ance for some time. The Front-street
houses are still piled high with the bet
ter grades, and tbe movement is really
nominal. Store and dairy grades con
tinue to come in an oversupply and the
price is weaker.
WHEAT IS OFFERING.
More wheat is now being offered than
for several months, but the Bales report
ed are small. The prices now being
asked by tbe farmers holding are slight
ly above those rulimr, and the millers do
not seem to care to take hold. Up the
valley some of the interior millers are
paying a Bimill premium for immediate
delivery, but bevood this the market re
mains at quotations.

In Reply to "Socialism."
Mr. Editor : In your last week's Cour
ier you gave space to a correspond nt
who asks "Is there any casue or need of
the Socialist party in the Uniied States."
Not wishing to antagonize, the writer,
who is a good citizen and neighbor, I
accord him the same privilege that he
must grant me. We view matters from
a different standpoint and quite natur
ally see things differently. In the first
place, it is a difficult matter to convince
a man against bis will, especially when
the will power predominates.
Ag in, if our premises are incorrect
our conclusions are lkely to be erron
eous. While I must agree with tbe gen
tleman in Borne things, yet I beg leave to
differ with him in others. All well in
formed persons who read and think.only
know too well that they are living under
a very corrupt administra ion. This
much I readily admit. Consequently
the correct thing to do is to turn the ras
cals out and put good honest men in
their place such men as composed the
rank and file of the Democratic party
when "Uncle Hill" was one of the num
ber. The fundamental principles oj Democ
racy are the same today they were in
the days of Jackson and Jefferson. Un
der these princlpledweclaim the inaliena
ble right of liie.liberty and the pursuit of
happiness ; in other words, the right to
Just here it might be well to remark
that in the intelligence of the people lies
the security of the nation, and univer
sal suffrage should be restricted only
by ignorance, crime insanity , Is this
not good sound Democratic doctrine?
Then why kick over the traces for light
and transient causes? Return to the
fold do your duty and your reward will
In conclusion, what does Socialism de
mand? Well, my dear sir, it demands a
little more than I and millions of others
are willing to grant. It demands that
we surrender our individuality all that
independent thinking people hold dear;
in other words it virtually destroys the
incentive to honorable exertion.
These lines are not wiitten for bun
combe, but that the best interests of hu
manity may be served. Fellow Demo
crats, stand by your colors. "Eternal
vigilance is the price of liberty. Hur
