Prices on commodities are still ris
ing fast. The war Influence was more
than ever apparent In Portland with
the opening of the new week yester
day. There were two Important advsners
In foodstuffs. One was In sugar, which
at $8.05 a hundred, a rlso of 50 cents,
touched a new high mark, topping bv
half a cent a pound tiie previous high
figure In the local market, attained In
1911. Dealers say that the three prin
cipal factors In this heavy Increase r
tho heavy foreign demand, the 7 per
cent exacted for war risks and the
high cost of exchange In addition to
the fact that sugar Is hard to gel at
Ontmenl Junipn Again.
The other largo advance was In oat
meal. It had gone up !i0 cents a barrel
last week, but yesterday a further rlss
of 26 cents was quoted.
Rice and beans are holding steady at
an increase of a cent a pound. As the
last rice crop was short, dealers say
this advance would have come anyway.
The same Is asserted of beans, the
present crop being short and of poor
quality. However, still further advances
are highly probable owing to the for
Cornmeal la up half a rent a pound,
and thereby It becomes certain that
the man with a sweet breakfast tooth
will have to pay dear for his hot-cake
syrup this Winter. With two of the
principal Inrredlents of syrup, sugar
and cornmeal. at their present figures
and going higher, syrup seems on Mw
way to become a luxury.
Chicken Hunted Higher.
The best butter was retailing at 3i.
cents a pound yesterday. Ranch eggs
were selling at 27 cents wholesale.
Spring chicken climbed a cent a pound
over Sunday, rising from 16 to 17 cents.
Hons rose half a cent to 16fcc. Tilla
mook cheese also Jumped half a cent
A lamentable result of the war was
the condition of the garlic market. Two
weeks ago the best local garlics could
bo had for 8 to 7 cents a pound. When
It seemed that the Italian supply would
bo cut off, however, garlic connois
seurs had a panic. Demands on the
market here from New tork, ihirago
and other Important garllc-eatlng cen
ters have rushed up the local price to
15 cents, with still . further advances
Without exception. Imported liquors
are soaring In price. Champagne

two weeks of $7 a case. There r" i-

that domestic whiskies, rys and bour
