POTATOES MOVE UP
Fancjr Grades Are Steadily
SEED VARIETIES ARE WANTED
Onion Market Also Shews Much Im
prmnement Scarcity of Butter
Leads to Higher Prices
Small Interest in Hops.
The coarse of the potato market does' not
justify the, predictions made by shippers and
dealers at tbe commencement of tbo seaoan.
Instead of declining, prices have moved up
ward more or lps steadily of late. What will
be the future of the market is hard to say.
but growers feel confident that the present coo
dlUpus will lead to higher values later on.
Buyers are paying 95 cents at Portland for
fancy grade and the .course of the San Fran
clico market would seem to Justify even bet
ter prices, but If they have been offered the
fact has been kept quiet. Coos Bay potatoes
are selling In tbe California metropolis for
$1.40 and they are said to be well worth, the
rrice, for they are of the finest quality this
r-easou. Very few strictly fancy potatoes are
coming into this market but receipts of com
mon grades are large and they are hard to
move. There Is an urgent demand lor early
t-aed poiaioes and buyers are offering $1.50 to
II 76 per ICO. but cannot get adequate sup
tiles. Inquiries made as far East as Montana
tin to bring satisfactory results. There was
a short crop of early potatoes last year, which
accounts for the scarcity. -Farmers ha Wing
an? kind of early eecd varieties, especially
Early Hose, can get good prices by marketing
Oeir product now.
The onion market is also in better shape,
to far as best strk Is concerned, and &
trlgbt fancy article will bring up to $325.
There is a great deal of common stock coming
In. however, which Is hard to place at a range

culty be moved.
WHEAT The wheat market is stagnant.
with r.o trading reported on Eastern or Cali
fornia account, and export business out of-the
question What buying was done In the past
week was by millers and was of a hand-to-
trouth character. Prices are weak in sym
pathy wjth the ateady decline in Eastern mar
kets Conditions In the European trade are
I reported by the London correspondent of the
Northwestern Miller of March 1 as follows;
The continued unfavorable crop reports re
ceived by cable -from India, backed up as they
arc by the abstention of shippers from offer
ing wheat at anything like the prices Which
"blank' sellers will accept, have Imparted a
good deal of strength to the market, more
(specially as It Is now believed that the Ar
gentine crop has turned out less than was ex
pected, while the- Australasian surplus for
Europe, It Is now tolerably certain, will not
teach 50 per .cent of that of last year, which
was about 40.000,000 quarters. So much.
therefore, depends upon India this year that
any prospective reduction of the supplies, to
oe expected from thence Is bound to have
j-a;e in .December I sent you a summary
te.-clved by cable, of what is known as the
r.rs: official memorandum of the condition
cf the crop and the area sown. When this
first report is made up, the full area Is not
known, and the success of tho crop atlll more
or less depends upon the weather. However,
that report, while it showed the area sown.
w far, To be a trifle less than last year, stated
that the condition of the crop was generally
rood and even excellent In the most Impor
tant wheat-growing part of India, via., the
Lnlted Province and the Northwest. Since
the compilation of that report, however, the
smtlook. has been impaired, first of all by the
failure of the late rains, and,' secondly, by
-Ibe extraordinary severity of the weather:
t.vers have been frozen over, which had nnw
seen In this state before, and communications
cave peen Interrupted by snowstorms. In
Bengal, too heavy rains at an Inopportune
time havo done damage. Thus it happens !'
while last December the outlook indicated a
trop little short of last year's abnormally large
field, -and thus caused a bearish Imprc&slon to
prevail, the majority of the private reports
bow received state that the crop may be
seriously short of last year's. Wo must wait,
however, until about the middle of next month
for a definite report, which will then be fur
ntrtied by the second official memorandum; the
third and final report appears in June.
Tbe first official report of the condition of
the French crop on January J3 has appeared
litis week, and f-hows the average condition 'to
be only 67.6. agalnFt 72.2 last year, and 70.4
In 1603. while the area sown Is rather less than
last year. For the purposes of these agricul
tural reports France Is divided into ten sec

Opinions are expressed, with which one is la
rrlned to asa,e. that the large draft on the
agricultural papulation for the purposes of the
war with Japan, and tho distress which pre
vails in many parts of the country may re
sult In a largely reduced area this year.
Meanwhile the Ice-free ports of Odessa. Nico
taleff Novorocralsk and Theodorla are shipping
tnuch more freely than was expected, the con
tequence being that the shipments to Europe
last wi exceed three million quarters.
FLOUR. FEBD. BTC The flour market
tffers no encouragement whatever this week.
She Orientals are disposed to buy for later
shipment April, May and June but at lower
prices and as the millers are not disposed to
sxoept their figures, a deadlock Is tho result,
tt was expected that some business might be
accomplished by chartering tramp atcara ton
cage, but It Is said by mill era that even a
(4 rate would sot enable the business to be
profitably worked. The Central and South
Americans, who bought liberally a short time
ago, are now out of the market. A small
amount of flour Is sUll going East. The local
tltuaUon is in a strong position, and while it
Is not announced that an advance Is In pros
pect. It Is equally certain that there will aft,
be a. decline.
The feed market Is strong with a heavy de
mand for mill products and local slocks not
heavy. Oata and barley are reported quiet,
and notwithstanding a good export movement.
prices are unchanged. There Is a large sup
ply of hay at this point and leading dealers
quote the xnsrt-.et weak.
HOPS This market Is quiet with not much
Interest shown except by speculators and lo
cal dealers. Effort made by bulls and bears
have, had no material effect In changing the
situation. The market Is still quoted as -weak.
Both, sides look for a change soon In the line
of their respective Interests. New York ad
vices of March 4 said:
No new developments were reported from up
the Mate or the coast. Offerings were lim
ited, there being no pressure fromgrowers to
market supplies ana mere were Buyers at un
changed prices. Locally th market presented
a tame appearance. Some dealers continued
to show a. willingness to purchase supplies at
prices last paid, but there was no active bid
ding for supplies. Business with brewers was
The progress made la forming a pool of
English growers Is thus reported by the Kent
ish Observer of February 16:
An organisation, which has for Its object the
combination of holders of J 904 hops.4 for the
purpose of regulating the sale of same, and
preventing, as far as possible, excessive com
petition therein. Is making good progress to
wards completion. At the- first meeting of
growers, held January 23 last, the general
principles of the scheme were accepted and a
provisional committee waa appointed to ex
amine details and to report to a. subsequent
meeting. At tbe meeting held in London on
Monday last the committee was able to re
port that between 80 and 100 members hoMing
nearly 20.000 pockets of hops, had signed.!
agreements to pool their aoldlsgs. It was ulti
mately resolved to adjourn the meeting to
Monday next, February 20. at the Bridge
House Hotel. London Bridge, when the Bor
ough factors will be Invited to Join the grow
ers In consultation as to the best methods of
PRODUCE There Is a great scarcity of but
ter on Front street, and quotations on best
grades have been advanced to 324 cents. Many
firms with outside orders were unable to fill
them -yesterday. The advance, in California
shut oS supplies frost that quarter, and though
tbe San Francisco market later declined. It Is
not likely to havo a weakening effect here, as
Eastern prices have gone up and the Call-
fornians can do better by shipping East than
to the Northwest. The stresgth of the local
situation t only regarded as temporary, as
grass has become plentiful In the country and
receipts from the Valley and Coast creameries
are expected to Increase rapidly.
Eggs are on the upward march again and
sell readily at a cent over the quotations of
the first of the week. Receipts, though fairly
large, are Irregular. Indicating that Puget
Sound buyers are operating in the Valley. The
top figure quoted below was asked yesterday
on single case lots.
Poultry Is also firmer, as receipts, though of
good volume, have been readily absorbed.
Large quantities of California, produce have
come on the market In the past week and
have been disposed of at generally steady
prices. A number of early varieties of vege
tables have been received.
There Is a good local demand, for fancy table
apples, but the market Is overburdened with
common stock, which Is offering at 60 eents
and up. and hard to move at that.
GROCERIES. MEATS. ETC All grades of
sugar, exeept beet sugar, declined 10 cents
per hundred yesterday. Coffee Is weak and
teas quiet and unchanged. Rice is slow with
no alteration in the tone of the market.
Canned goods are generally firm and salmon
has an upward tendency.
Livestock quotations are maintained at the
yards, though there is lees strength ra cattle
and hogs. Dressed meats are firmer, par
ticularly veal and pork.

CHICAGO. March & In a whirl of excite
ment today wheat for July delivery broke 3tjc

improvement In condition, of Fall-sown, wheat

In th meanwhile, however, the market ex

RECOVERY IN STOCKS.
But Tone Ij Still One of Hesitation Con
spicuous -Buying In Coalers.
NEW TORK. March S. Prices recovered in
today's stock market, although there was little
improvement In the volume of trading. The
tone was by so means well assured aad hesi
tation was still apparent In the xqovemenL
Trading was largely In professional haads.
The smallness of tbe selling orders which re
sulted froai the diwnward tendency yesterday
eerved as an encouragement to holders of
stocks and as a warning to bearish profes
rlonals not to extend their short contracts
unduly. The whole character of the market
Is better defined, as a waiting ono than as
either strong or reactionary.
With the Northern Securities case decided,
the absence of large selling is regarded as In
dicating a feeling of confidence la future de
velopments having a favorable bearing- on val
ues. The postpone men t of announcements in
explanation of the plans whjch were supposed
lo be contingent upon the settlement of the
Northern Securities case Is -trying the patience
of holders of fht stocks Involved. Large at
tention Is given to the subject In the current
discussion In Wall street, but evidently more
concrete results are desired to revive any
speculation la tbe market. The effect of the
strike on the local transit companies was 'less
marked In diminishing tho attendance at the
Stock Exchange today.
The most conspicuous buying today was la
the coalers aad tha special prominence of
Reading was attributed to the activity of a
pool la the stock. The rlview of trade, condi
tions by -the recbgnlred organ -traa very cheer
ful, however, and doubt was expressed whether
the usual Spring reductloa ia the price scaje
would he adopted this year. Amalgamated Cop
per also was a. responsive stock to enthusiastic
trade rtpsrts and a speculative party was a!d
to be active in that stock. The sharp recov
ery la New Tork Central had a. ..good effect
on sentiment. Tnc movement lit Western
stocks connected, with the merger rumors wtfs
The crisis In the war la the Far East and
the threatened catastrophe to the Russian
army had the effect of checking activity rather
than of prompting acy definite position In the
market. In Paris the rumor of another Rus
sian loan seemed to have & strengthening Ef
fect and to neutraiizo the Influence of the
war sews. The London market reflected some
doubt la Its operations pendrag'the action of
the Baak of England tomorrow on Its official
discount rate. The tone of the money market
was easier here for both call and time leans;
but sterling exchange at Chicago widened. The
buoyant rise In Reading late In tbe day was
interrupted by some renewed pressure against
Union Pacific and the closing consequently
was slightly Irregular. '
Bonds were steady. Total sales, par. value.
