THE 3IORXIXG OEEGONIAN. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1907.
BO SH PL
Offered at 30 Cents on Front
Street, With No Buyers.
SUPPLIES ARE POURING IN
Iletailers Ont of the Market, or Only
Buying to Fill Their Immediate
Requirements Eggs From
The time for cheap eggs Is at hand. For
three days now the price has steadily de
clined, the afternoon quotation being regu
larly lower than that put out In the morn
ing. At the close of business yesterday aft
ernoon Oregon eggs were freely offered at
SO cents on Front street, and buyers, even
at this price, were few and far between.
This Is the season of year when the hens
begin to lay best. But for the cold spell,
which checked shipments, the decline to the
present level would have been more grad
ual, but It is only this week that supplies
nave come forward freely from the coun
try and the transferring of the accumula
tion from the interior to the city broke
the market in short order. Testerday's
arrivals on Front street were fully 300
cases of Oregon eggs, and the creameries
and large retailers also received some sup
plies direct. Besides this, a good-sized
w.ipment of California eggs came upon the
At the opening of business a number of
rales were reported on the street at 32 H
SJ-enta, but the buying was of a hand to
mouth character, as Is always the case on
a falling market. Little or no trading was
reported in the afternoon, and offers at
SO cents failed to stimulate business. Lower
offers may have been made, but they were
not reported. A quantity of eggs was
shipped to an outside market at 30 cents,
tut this had little effect on the accumula
tion. The express brought up two ship-loads of
Petaluma eggs, one of 45 cases coming to
a Front street Jobber and a retailer get
ting the other. On the street the Peta
lumas were offered at 27 ii cents, which
was probably considerably less than they
cost. Several wires were received from
6an Francisco offering eggs here, the high
est at 30 and the lowest at 26 cents.
EASTERN ron.TKT GETS FOOTHOLD
local Retailer. Buy It In Preference to
Receipts of live poultry were lighter than
usual yesterday, but enough came In to
supply the demand, as the retailers were
well supplied for their Saturday trade with
Eastern dressed goods. The Swifts will have
another car here in a day or two, as It
haa been reported in the O. R. N. block
ade about to be raised. The car contains
turkeys, ducks, geese and broilers, besides
the usual quantity of chickens.
The movement in Eastern frozen poultry
has been unusually large in the past two
months and has to a large extent checked
Jo sale of live poultry on Front street.
e -Eastern stock has been offered to the
etallers dressed and put up in excellent
thape at prices but little above what live
poultry has been quoted at. The goods make
an attractive appearance in the stores and
have coma into favor with consumers, while
the retailers find them more profitable to
fcanale than home-grown poultry. Many of
the commission men complain loudly against
the invasion of their field by the Eastern
packers, yet such poultry will continue to
be sold here as long as Oregon fowls are
held at high prices. The manner in which
t'ja) Eastern poultry is graded is also in its
favor. Oregon poultry shippers will in
time have to put up their supplies in the
Eastern fashion and meet the Eastern prices
If they do not want the Swifts and Ar
mours to get a firm footing here.
Among the local arrivals from the Val
ley yesterday was a lot of choice dressed
turkeys that sold well at 22 cents.
Dragging Business In Hop Market.
A few sales were reported in the hop
market yesterday at prices ranging from
S4 to lilt cents. The same unsatisfactory
reports oame from the Eastern trade of the
Impossibility of Interesting brewers in new
business. Many growers are anxious to sell
now, but the dealers can do nothing for
them with no demand at the other end.
It la said there are a few orders in for
contracts at 11 cents.
A few purchases of choice lots were made
during the day by Klaber, Wolf & Netter.
Another dealer bought a 132-bale lot from
a grower at 8 ',4 cents, but the particulars
were I not obtainable.
Vegetables In Strong Demand.
There was a strong demand for green
pro luce yesterday and the steamer arriv
als, though in Indifferent condition, were
cleaned up without much delny, full prices
being realized. The other receipts were a
car of sweet potatoes and a mixed car of
oranges, lemons and tangerines that came
from Saa Diego. One car of mixed vege
tables, two of celery and four of oranges
are still stalled at Junction City.

RESTRICT NEW BUSINESS
"ttlXTER STORMS AFFECT TRADE
IX MANY SECTION'S.
Contlnued Advance In Prices of
Commodities More Speculative
Interest) in Wheat.
NEW YORK. Feb. 8. R. a. Dun Co.'s
Weekly Review of Trade tomorrow will
Severe storms restricted new business in
many sections of the country during the
past week and Increased the delay in mak
ing deliveries on old orders. Commodity
prices advanced, as a rule. Jobbers report
a good demand for Spring delivery.
Fackera have sold hides for March salting
for full quotations, despite the take-off
of this month and next is the poorest
quality of the year.
More speculative Interest has developed in
the wheat market, encouraged by cable re
ports of heavy home needs for Russian
wheat in relieving the famine and increased
demand by exporters. Corn was firmly
held above last week's quotations, despite a
movement that proved the large crop es
timates, but foreign demand was poor.
Spring Demand Is Retarded.
NEW YORK, Feb. 8. Bradstreefs tomor
row will say:
First effects of the past week's wide
spread Winter storm was to dull trade at
most markets, to quiet Spring demand, re
tard collectionse and in some sections ac
centuate the already congested railway sit
uation. The bull movement in wheat and other
grains strengthened prices further this week
and prices are up an average of 2 cents
per bushel at all markets. The car short
age Is being keenly felt at Western milling
centers and Minneapolis flour production is
down to a low point, owing to light supplies.
European advices have been more bullish.
Russian agents are reported to be buying
wheat here and in Canada.

Halting Speculation in the
PRICES DROP AT THE CLOSE
Important Developments at Wash
ington Expected That Will Have
Bearing on Financial Condi
tions Call Money Firmer.
NEW TORK, Feb. 8. The stock market
had an active hour after the opening to
day, during which prices were held above
the level of yesterday's recovery. Appa
rently no distribution waa going on at that
level, and the market lapsed into extreme
dullness and hesitating fluctuations there
after. The effect was to revive doubts over
the speculative outlook.
Most of the material of the day's spec
ulation was in the form of rumors, and
most of these emanated from Washington.
mere were large buying orders at the
same time, executed by houses with impor
tant Washington connections. The effect
was to produce an impression that impor
tant developments were to be forthcoming
there bearing on financial and stock mar
ket conditions. '
There were plenty of rumors to supply de
tails, but authoritative information was
lacking. Confidence Is felt la the financial
district that moderate measures of cur
rency reform have been undertaken at Wash
ington under auspices that give good prom
ise of success. It is believed that provision
for the routine deposit of surplus revenue
of the Government, including customs re
ceipts m National banks, will be made and
the limit of monthly retirement of bank
note circulation expanded to $12,000,000 to
$15,000,000. Instead of $3,000,000, as the
present. The removal of this limitation is
expected to lead in freer note issues by
the banks where they are restrained now
by the difficulty of retiring the notes when
they come back from circulation.
The impression got abroad in the financial
district that assurance had been received
in some way of a likelihood that the Inter
state Commerce Commission would not be
opposed to an advance in freight rates, if
prices were equalized. There was a rumor
also of an Intended alteration in the Gov
ernment process -against the Standard Oil
Company, which is regarded as a sort of
test case of the attitude to be taken to
ward the great corporations in general.
The uncertainty in the stock market
movement was probably the outgrowth of
the rather unsubstantial material on which
it is thus seen it was based. The market
felt the effect also of the reduction of tht
short interest by reason of the covering of
shorts yesterday. A hardening of the call
money rate late in the day also weighed
somewhat on the market. This was sup
posed to be due to the making of provisions,
or paying the subscriptions to last week's
New York City bond issue of $30,000,000.
The primary estimates of the week's cur
rency movements also indicated a weakened
banking position. Reports were current of
further nole issues by railroads, either
placed or In contemplation. The rate of
Interest which these notes are made to
bear at the price they bring Indicates that
the market is still inaccessible to capital
issues of a more permanent form at prices
which corporations could afford to accept.
The dropping tendency of the market mor
than wiped out the early gains and held
to the closing, which was easy.
Bonds were Irregular. Total sales, par
value, $1,634,000. United States bonds were
unchanged on call.

SAN FRANCIaCO. Feb. 8. (Special.)
Tonopahs were not particularly strong nor
active and the only feature was a sale of
Jim Butler at $1.18.
It was during the Goldfield call that a
distinctly strong tone became evident and
as the stocks came out there was an ad
vance in prices and an increased business
all along the line. Jumbo Extension made
the first advance of 12 points to $2.60. Sil
ver Pick sold at $1.47. a rise of 7 points.
When Red Top Extension was called, a
genuine struggle ensued to fill orders and
before all the brokers had filled their or
ders the price reached 42 cents, with one
small sale at 43 cents. Combination Frac
tion was bid up to $5.25. but no stock
came out. Goldfield Consolidated was
higher. Daisy held about the same as, for
the past two days. Among the sales were:
Montana. $3.97; McNamara, 61c; Midway,
$2.02; Gold Anchor. 38c: Jim -Butler, $1.18;
Gold Crown, 16c; Sandstorm, 74c; Bluebull,

CHICAGO. Feb. 7. Trading tn the wheat

settled. At the opening some weakness was
manifested because of a deeiine at Minneapo
lis and because of liberal shipments ?rom Ar
gentina. After the first hour the market be
came firm. The strength In the focal market
was a reflection of further advances In Eu

again eased off on selling, caused .by. .the
weakness of coarse grains. The close was
easy. May opened a shade lower to a shade
