WHEAT SHOWS GREAT STRENGTH
Advance at San Prunclsco One of the
Prlnclpnl Factor In the Ci
Traril Treud ot l'rlccs.
CHICACO. Feb. 7. Wheat showed decided
strength, 'and tho volume! of trade was fair.
The opening v.as strong on higher cables, with
May WjSc hisher at 77!4c Everything
seemed to favor the bulls, the outside markets
being strons, and a good export Inquiry belns
rcportad at the seaboard. Under these bullish
conditions shorts covered freely, which aided
In advancing prices still further. A report
from San Francisco, showing an advance there
of l4c was one of the principal factors In the
upward trend of prices, while the strength In
coarse sralss also aided the advance. Toward
the end of the session, the demand became so
urgent that May sold up to fcOtiC and the close
was at S0eMUc. a gain of ltc
Corn was more active than for some time
past, there being a good commlsslon-bouse de
mand. The close was strong, with May H3Hc
higher, at 45SC45Hc'
Oats were directly Influenced by the decision
of tbe arbitration committee, making the set
tlement price In the July oats controversy at
Uc This led shorts to believe that the set
tlement on the board favored those who ma
nipulated the market during tbe Summer, and
In view ot the fact that present Indications
point to another attempt to manipulate prices
of the May option, there was considerable
anxiety among shorts, and covering was gen
eral. The strength In other grains also aided
the .bulls. The close was at the top for May
at 38c. a gain of Tittle
There was a moderate trade In provisions.
but the market was firm on fair commission-
house demand and on covering by shorts, who
sold expecting liberal receipts of hogs today.
The strength In grains was an Influence late
In tbe day. The close was firm, with Msy
pork 15c higher, lard 2V4c up, and ribs 2H05c

GRESHAM. Or.. Feb. 4. (To the Edi
tor.) It seems to me that the attention
of some of our Senators or Representa
tives should be called to the prcmnt mode
of advertising for a license to sell spirit
uous liquors so that applicants for a
saloon license could not choose the most
obscure paper In the county In which to
publish their notice. What Is a notice
for If not to give notice to those who
may be Interested In the establishing of a
saloon In their midst.
Now. It seems to me that such notices
should be advertised in the, paper having
the largest circulation In the county or
city where such saloon is proposed to be
run. Will those Interested In this move
please take thto matter up and pass It
