Prices Will Advance Ten Cents
a Barrel Today.
LOCAL MARKET IS STRONG
Wheat I Again Quoted Higher and
,a Premium Would Readily
Be Paid For Spot
Export flour prices will he advanced 10
cents a barrel this morning by the Portland
Flouring Mills. This advance comes as a
result of tho very urgent Oriental flour
demand, coupled with the extreme scarcity
of wheat at this point. The local flour
market continues firm at the recent ad
vance, with an active movrment reported
both by millers and jobbers.
No wheat has come forward from the
interior for seven days, and it will be sev
eral days yet before any can arrive, ow
ing to the blockade on the O. R. A N. line.
Spot stocks are small and very firmly held.
Yesterday's quotations were more or less
nominal and represent what buyers here
would pay for stocks In the country with
the prc3ent railroad facilities. Wheat on
the track at this point would undoubtedly
command a good premium. A large handler
of wheat fa Id yesterday: "If I had 100,
000 or 50.000 bushels of club wheat in
Portland today, I could sell it without
trouble at 72 cents."
rOTATO BVVERS ARE CAUTIOUS.
Fear lATge Shipments May Vaken ban
Potato buyers are operating cautiously,
as thry fear the large quantity moving to
San Francisco may weaken that market. Up
to the present time the San Francisco trade
has absorbed all the arrivals from Ore
gon, and the former prices have been well
maintained. A private wire from San Fran
cisco yt'stcrday reported the sale of a
fancy car of Oregon Burbanks at 92.25,
which the shipper confidently expected to
receive more for.
The San Francisco Call of Tuesday said
of the potato and onion markets In the
There were fully ten cars of potatoes in
from Oregon and the East yesterday, be
sides the usual over-Sunday arrivals from
the river districts. The market. having
previously been quite bare, remained very
firm despite the increased receipts, and
firmer prices ruled for all descriptions, some
fine Orej-nn Burbanks even commanding
a substantial premium In small lots. .The
receipts included some Garnet Chiles, which
were held for seed purposes at 91.40tr 1.50
per cental. Onions were offering in rather
limited quantities and prices were easily
EGCiH ON THE HOWXWARU SLIDE.
Loral Stocks Accnmulat Ing and Outside
Buyers Not Interested.
The slump that started In the egg market
Wednesday morning encountered no obstacle
yesterday and prices continued to decline
during the day. Receipts were heavy.
Front street alone getting about 250 cases,
and probably not over half of these were
moved. Pnles were reported In the fore
noon at 374 cents and later at 35. One
large handler sent out numerous wires of
fering stock at 32 cents and received no
answers. Pan Francisco ofTered to sell eggs
. h,ere at 30 and later at 2tt cents, . o. IS-
out found no buyers.
A little poultry came to hand and moved
off fairly well at quotations.
The butter market was steady In price
and Inclined to be stow.
Orange Market Weak.
Three cars of oranges arrived yesterday,
and with the stocks on hand the market
was overloaded and weak. Tangerines, how
ever, are selling better. Four cars of ba
nanas came In In fine condition. A car of
celery and a car of mixed vegetables are
stalled back of a washout near Junction
City, but may be in today.

Broad and Animated Advance

CLOSING TONE IS STRONG
Inspiration Comes From Washington
Rumors of More Friendly At
titude of the Government
NEW TORK, Feb. 7. A hesitating and Ir
regular advance broadened out in the final
hour of today's stock market into a more
animated and comprehensive rise than rias
occurred at any time since the decisive
downward tendency of prices set in. The
Inspiration was largely tn rumors of Wash
ington origin of a new development there
that would relieve the corporation world
from the sense of hostility. on the part of
Sentiment was favorably affected by the
advices from the Winter wheat regions of
the safety of that crop. The Southwestern
railroads were most Immediately afected.
Assertions of an intended increase In the
dividends on Atchison and Southern Pacific
were used with effect, especially in the case
of Atchison. Southern Pacific was slug
gish and did not respond even to the later
rise In Union Pacific upon the President's
return to his office after a period of ill
ness. Prospects for 'the proposed increases
in freight rates eerved to counteract to
some extent the showing of decreases in net
earnings of railroads. The traffic managers'
plan for freight advances is looked to as a
possible means of increase in the earnings,
and at the same time adding to the effi
ciency of the present supply of equipment.
The intention of railroad companies to re
trench tnclr plans of future projects of im
provement is now generally accepted as a
fixed determination. The reduction of the
pressure for new capital Is expected to re
sult and a subsidence of a part of the de
mand for materials and for labor is to be
accepted as an inevitable consequence.
ihe feature of the day in the money mar
ket was the free offerings of funds on time.
Foreign exchange was firmer, although the
strong position reported By the Bank of
England and Bank of France showed the
trength of the foreign financial position in
spite of the retention of the 5 per cent
discount rate by the Bank of England. While
the late rise in stocks broadened out to
some extent. It was still largely specialized
in tne early ravorites. The closing was
strong at the best.
Bonds were firm. Total sales, par value.

ABOUT NOTED PERSONS

age had been placed in the Smithsonian
Institution. When ho had time to get
his breath and make a reply to the nu
merous charges, Mr.' Bell explained that
his package at the institution did not
contain a long-distance seeing apparatus,
and furthermore that he Bad never even
thought of such a thing. Although many
years have passed, none of the outraged
"English and American inventors have
ever come forward with the invention
which they said had been stolen from
Chicken in Allopathic Doses.
The late Dr.. Harriet S. French, of
Philadelphia, was one of the vanguard
of women physicians in this country. She
was the lifelong friend of Frances Wil-
lard and it was to her that Miss Willard
went for advice when she was still pen
niless and unknown. Dr. French often
described her first glimpse of the slim,
quietly frocked girl. w!)o told her that
she had decided to consecrate her life
to the temperance cause and would like
to have guidance fpr her first steps. Dr.
FYench was a homeopathic physician and
a staunch advocate of mild doses for pa
tients. This, caused her to have many
a tilt with her allopafhic colleagues over
the weakness of her medicine.
"You have no idea of strength," a friend
declared to her one day. "You let the
shadow of a chicken fall across clear
water, and then feed ft to your patients
for broth." Dr. French retorted:
"Well, that is better than feeding them
the whole chicken, bones, feathers and
Dr. Allen G. Hall, moderator of the gen
eral assembly of the Southern branch of
the Presbyterian Church in the United
States, is a famous storyteller and after
dinner speaker and takes a lively interest
in politics. During a recent campaign he
asked a friend for a frank opinion of
a certain high "public officer. The friend
replied with candor and profanity:
"That man is a d n fOQl " ."Whereupon
Dr. Hall said:
"As moderator of the General Assembly
of the Presbyterian Church in the United
States, as a ruling elder in the church
and as the superintendent of a Sunday
school, I am' constrained to rebuke your
phraseology, but my devotion to truth
compels me to applaud your sentiment."
Sirs. Bellamy Storer's Fail.
Mrs. Bellamy Storer, who recently fig
ured in the limelight as a vigorous but
unsuccessful exponent of diplomacy, has
had other fads besides politics. She is a
wbman of unbounded energy and applies
herself with much zeal to whatever she
goes In for. Before her marriage to Mr.
Storer she was Mrs. George Ward
Nichols, of Cincinnati, and one of her
early ambitions was to Initiate Ameri
cans into the delights of the French
salon. She pressed the unwilling Mr.
Nichols into service, and they liad "regu,
lar evenings devoted to art." While she
did not meet with the measure of suc
oess she had anticipated, it can be said
that It was due to her efforts that the
first specimens of Rookwood pottery were
made in the United States. Whenever
the "female ambassadress" went on her
diplomatic Journeys she continued her
quest for pottery of rare coloring and
delicate line, and she now has the most
remarkable collection in America.
When Judge Page Morris was a Con
gressman from Minnesota, he was sore
beset by relatives from various parts of
the country, -who besieged him with hun
dreds of senseless questions. Tho Judge
was intense and excitable and, when pro
voked, had a trick of pulling ferociously
at his long hair. Shortly after the ad
journment of one of the sessions of Con
gress, he received a long -"collect" mes
sage from a brother of his, who was a
pastor in Natchez. Mississippi. The min
ister wanted to know If the report that
Congress had adjourned was true. This
was the final straw. Turning to his sec-,
retary, the judge shouted:
"Telegraph that fool brother of mine
that Congress has not been In session
for three jtears; that he has been misin
formed." Arbuckle's Squirrel Soup.
Macklyn Arbuckle. who plays the title
role in George Ade's "County Chair
man." was once a candidate for justice
of the peace In Texarkana, Tex. At
that time the genial star was harassed
by a serious shortage of funds. He made
a deal with the manager of a Mexican
restaurant to furnish him meals for $3
a week. However, the "Mexican host
knew something about the rapacious ap
petites of aspiring politicians, so he
protected himself from possible loss by
making the stipulation that whenever
he considered that Arbuckle had con
Fumed $3 worth of food, the politician
was to finish out the week on squirrel
soup. Mr. Arbuckle had plenty of flesh
to spare, and the arrangement was work
ins; beautifully, until his political oppo
nent found It out and told the story in
one of his speeches.
, "Of course you know, feller citizens."
said the divulger of the secret, 'we
ckin't have no man fur jestice of the

Arbuckle lost the election, and in des

May Option Gains Three-Quarters of

CHICAfJO Feb 7 At the oneninsr of the
1 wheat market prices were somewhat easier
I-Iverpool in face of the decided strength
shown here yesterday. Before the end of
the firot hour, however, the weakness was
dispelled by liberal purchases by commis
sion houses, and throughout the remainder
of the day the market was strong. Export
news was the mafn source of Btrength, al
though substantial advances at Berlin,
Paris and Antwerp were minor Influences.
One report from an export house at Du
luth stated that the foreign situation Is
the strongest for several years. These re
ports were partially confirmed. and an
nouncement was made that 41) boatloads of
wheat had been taken in New York for
export. The market closed strong, with
May 3514c higher at KOt.
The corn market was firm early In the
day in sympathy with oats, but later the
tone became weak because of realizing by
some of the larger holders. Light receipts
and an excellent demand by shippers caused
a further advance in the price of oats. Pro
visions were weak because of a 10c decline
in the price of live hogs.

HEAVY DAMAGES GRANTED
Girl Had Been Locked in Car With
Scarlet Fever Cases.
SEATTLE, Wash., Feb. 7. One of the
longest and hardest fought cases ever
tried in the King County Court ended
