Day bp Day
Poultry Is in Strong Demand but Pork
Is Weaker Now Than for Many ,
Front Street, Jan. 18 The principal
events in the local wholesale markets
today were: J
Chinook salmon lower.
Hogs go lower,
Egga still weaken.
CHINOOK SALMON IS LOWER.
The Quotations on Columbia river
Chinook salmon are 5 cents a pound
lower on account of the slight increse
in the receipts. The fish markets are
well supplied with all small fisn with
the exception of smelt.
HOGS ARE LOWER.
Although the receipts of hogs are not
over large along Frout 'street, still the
market went lower today on account of
the fact that former quotations were a
trifle too strained and the slight in
crease in the receipts caused the price to
go down. Veal is very scarce and is
bringing top quotations. The beef mar
ket is about the same as on Taturday.
KGGS STIl.L WEAKER.
Receipts cf iggs "till r-how an in
crease, and although the movement is a
trifle larger the market is only -Beak.
The toD of the market todav was 27 cents
with a few sales made all the way from
26 cents to that figure.
POULTRY IN DEMAND.
The many conventions which are be
ing held in this city during the week
will make a la-ge call of poultry, and
the market todav was quite good lor a
Monday. Receipts are not overlarge.
Turkevs, ducks and geese continue to be
MUCH WEAKER IN CHEESE.
The cheese market is very weak and
s'.ock is showirg only a dragging ten
dency . Some sales of cheeRe were made
on the Btreet today at 13 cents for full
cream stocks. Receipts continue to
show an increaee.
BUTTER IS BETTER.
The quotation show no charge in the
batter market today, but the very bost
grades of creamery are showing a decid
ed improvement in tone. Ordinary
grades continue to drag along wearily
and country store and dairy have the
same dragging tone.

Died, December 31, at her home on
Agency Plains, Mrs. Carolina Oard,
wife of M. O. Gard, resulting from
chronic stomach trouble.
The deceased waa born in Sept., 1856,
on what is known as the old Welch
farm in Highland, Clackamas county,
where sue lived until Out. 1874, when
she was married to M. O. Gard, of
Beaver Creek, who still survives her.
There were born to this couple eight
cnildren, seven of whom are living,;viz. :
Mi-s. Ada Stevens, of Highland; Mrs.
Eva Kirk, of Agency Plain; Messrs.
Chester, Buanard and Levid and the
Misses Myrtle and Deona, who are still
living with their father of this place.
Mr. and Mm. Gard and family lived
in Clackamas county until June 1903,
when they moved to their homestead
at Agency Plain.
The deceas d waa a firm believer of
the Gospel and always tried to live up
to the dutes of a Christian. She leaves
one sister and two., brothers to mourn
her loss, viz.: Mrs. Mary Kirk, of Mont

The family of Mrs. M. L. Bobbitt of
Bargerton, Tenn., saw her dying and
were powerlesB to save her. 1 he most
skillful physicians and every remedy
used, failed, while consumption was
slowly but surely taking her life. In
this terrible hour Dr. King's New Dis
covery for Consumption turned despair
into joy. The first bottle brought im
mediate relief and its continued ue
completely cured her. It's the most

Division Should Jlid Democrats.
(Washirgton Cor. Milwaukee Sentinel.)
One does not have to seek here for
muUerings against Mr. Roosevelt. Of"
a larpe part of this undercurrent of op
position ia due to the hostility of organiz
ed capital on the one side and organized
labor on the other. The main complaint
is that Mr. Roosevelt is not a safe man,
and that, impulBivelv, he dees thintre in
jurioua to the cause of capital i nd labor.-
it is a singular situation when a great
public character is assailed by both eidei
n the industrial world. The truth iB,
the Democrats do not expect to gather
much real fruit from this controversy.
They are banking on the divisions be
tween Eastern and Western Republicans
over Roosevelt, and a chance, (which
the think exists somewhere, to prove
that the acts of the Administration in
regard to the Panama Republic affair are
open to the censure of the world and es
pecially to the censure of the conserva- ,
tive people of a nation that believes in
fair play toward a weaker nation. Dili
gently the Democrats are working this
As natters now stand, however, the
initial talk of the campaign year center
chiefly around an Eastern Gold Demo
crat for the head of that ticket and Mr.
Roosevelt as the Republican leader.
Little is said about the second place on
either ticket. When Governor Taft ar
rives here he will be Bounded on the
subject, but it is expected he will repel
it with vigor. Whether he can be in
duced is a nueation, but a strong effort
will be made. In the mtanwhile the
stock of Senator Fairbanks continues to
be above par. The dilliculity with the
leaders just now is to plan Biiccesuful
campaign committee organizations. If
Mr. Hanna retires, which some of his
closest friends here still insist he will
not, a new selection must be. made, and,
already, it is discovered tint it will be
no easy task to find the right man. The
Democrats are in the same fix. Senator
Jones, of Arkansas, being ont of the
Senate and out of touch with the politi
cians of his state, is regarded as political
ly dead. Not a tew Democrats alwayi
regarded him as all of that during both
campaigns in which he headed the
Demociatic National Committee. With
Bryaniem cant aside, as the program is,
no National Chairman of the Jones Btnmp
would be thought of by the men who are
trying to put ginger into the Democrat
ic don!tey for this year's rase.
The New Fire Box.
A new fire box in that old cook stove
will cost you but a few dollars. The
old stove is worthless without It. Our
new fire box will make it good as new.
Remember how that old stove used to
bake. Why buy a new stove which will
have to be repaired anyway in a few
years, when o'tr fire box will make the
old one new? If you do not believe these
statements, give Mr. II. K. Luse a
chance and be convinced. He will do
