Stocks of wheat in the Northwest are
nearly exhausted, and this is responsi
ble for the lighter movement to this
port in the past month. Arrivals at
Portland in April amounted to 490,100
bushels, as compared with 646,100 bush
els received in the same month- last
year. The movement of barley and
oats was practically the same as in
April, 1913. but there was a decline in
flour and hay receipts. The total num
ber of carloads of wheat, oats, barley,
J"lour and hay received last- month was
1056, or 128 less than came in during
April last year.
The customary gain was shown In
receipts at the Portland Union Stock
yards last month. Total arrivals for
the month were 40,653 head, which
compares with 36,336 head received in
April last year. There were fewer
rattle at the yards than a year ago,
but the run of both hogs and sheep
showed good increases. The April

steady and prices at the close of April
were practically the same as at the
opening of the month.
Building permits during the past
month totaled $803,975 as against $3,
SS7.885 for April of last year, which
was the second largest result for any
month in history. Last . year it hap
pened that permits were issued almost
simultaneously for the Northwestern
Hank building, the Pacific Telephone
Telegraph building and for part of
tho work on the Pittock block. These
three permits alone totaled $1,500,000.
Residence construction is at least as
active this year as it was last.
